I once heard a guy say that if women could back off their expectations and demands on men, they would see better results. I questioned if by “expectations” he mean unrealistic ones, but no. Apparently expectations can become bothersome and unnecessary in dating.
Quick poll of my male friends revealed that women foolishly expect: every date to be a love connection; good relationships to just happen; and every guy that you want should want you back. (Yeah umm I’ll admit that I’m guilty of all three of these at one time or another oy!)
I found some truth in a lot of what he was saying. I believe men have expectations that cause problems too, though. Obviously we all are guilty of this but how do we stop it?!
Do you think we are let down and disappointed so much because we expect dating to be something that it’s not?
Are our dating expectations ruining our chances at beginning real relationships?
