What does it mean to have “high standards?” How do you know if you’re just a little picky, or your actually just super selective? When it comes to relationships, it gets tricky: you want to be open-minded, but you don’t want to date anyone who will waste your time, or anyone who will just be completely wrong for you. So, you set standards for yourself. You pick the qualities in a boyfriend or girlfriend that are the most important to you, and look for those in people. You don’t want to date just anyone, right?
It’s totally fine to know what you want and what you don’t want in a partner – in fact, it’s necessary to starting a good relationship. That said, it actually is possible to have expectations that are way too high. Having unrealistic standards and refusing to accept anything less than that isn’t the end of the world, but it will make the dating world a lot more difficult. If you rule someone out just because they aren’t six feet tall and they don’t have straight A’s like your dream bae does, you might miss out on getting to know someone really awesome. Sometimes the unexpected people are the ones we end up getting along with best! Do you think your standards might be too high? Take this quiz to find out!
