A lot of times people desire relationships and marriage because they have all these expectations, including some that aren’t so realistic. Even though men love to stick with their, we’re simple and easy to please, I think guys still expect a lot of things from their women. It’s how she gets from “random woman” he’s met to she could be “the one” status.
When a guy proposes, he believes that his girlfriend has far exceeded his expectations and wants to make her his wife (or he doesn’t want to risk losing her). Either way, men have girlfriend expectations and they should. I just wonder if women know what they are. I’m going to guess that we don’t and maybe we shouldn’t know beforehand.
After you have dated and hopefully communicated with one another, you have expressed your needs in a relationship. I believe that we express our desires and expectations in different ways. Would you agree? Do you think that we have realistic expectations of a dating relationship? What about marriage?
Guys, what kind of things do you expect from someone you are dating? How do you express them to her?
Ladies, do you have a hard time meeting “girlfriend” expectations with the men that you date?
