Every so often I have to remind some of my guy friends that women aren’t mannequins. Our hair sheds and can clog your sink. We burp on occasion. We have bad days. It’s a part of being a living breathing creature.
We all have those silly expectations and I think that we can set ourselves up for failure and disappointment, especially in relationships. I don’t believe that you should expect someone to fill every single need and desire you have.
You will only be disappointed because someone can’t live up to your impossible standards. Do you think we are holding out for relationships that are unrealistic? I wonder how much fantasy and how much “reality” exist in our expectations.
I think most reasonable people just want mutual love and respect. Everything else will work itself out if two people decide they want to be with one another.
I am not naive to think that love conquers all, but do we expect too much from relationships? Are they supposed to make us happy and fulfilled or do you think that is something you do for yourself?
