After all, especially when it comes to a relationship, you want to be with someone who is the best possible match for you in terms of personality, kindness, intelligence, looks, spirituality, etc.
On the other hand, expectations that are too low can create all kinds of troubles.
So stop looking for the ideal mate, and begin searching for someone you can see yourself creating a strong and long-lasting relationship with.
Expecting too Little There’s nothing wrong with accepting people for who they are.
Plus, that person will always be able to sense your disappointment, which means that he or she won’t feel good about the time you two spend together, either. You may want to date a Kennedy with a perfect body, a hilarious sense of humor, and a deep soul, but good luck finding that person.
Be careful about setting up predetermined and unrealistic standards in your mind. We all have certain flaws, and creating a healthy and fulfilling relationship is about finding a like-minded person who offers much of what we’re looking for in a partner, and then compromising and negotiating on the issues where differences occur.
