I overheard a woman at the nail bar complaining about a recent date. What she described actually sounded pretty awesome to me, so I was kind of confused what her real gripe was about. She wasn’t complaining about the amount of money he spent/didn’t spend. She said that he took her to a part of town that she never explored before. There was live music, good food, and a late night stop for desert. I seriously wanted to ask her, “What more do you want?!”
I know single women like to say that they have “standards” and I get it, I really do. I just wonder if some take that idea too far. If there is someone who asks you out, shows up to the date with an actual plan for the evening, what else is really needed? This is the kind of thing that makes dating unnecessarily difficult. Unrealistic expectations from both sides and people start to feel disappointed.
What is a reasonable expectation for a nice date? While we are on the topic of realistic expectations, should sex be something you expect on a date? I ask because someone asked me if I ever worried when a man would too much on a date to impress me because he had one goal for the night.
Do you think we are expecting too much from dating? Are some of us in need of a healthy dose of reality?
