8 Dating Expectations You Need To Let Go Of ASAP

I know that a lot of girls want an ~epic~ fairytale romance that could one day inspire a Nicholas Sparks novel. It’s nice to have standards and aspirations! After all, you don’t want to settle for someone who is just eh. You want to find someone who will treat you will respect and who you can actually trust and have fun with. That’s not too much to ask, right? Not at all. But unfortunately, there is such a thing as standards that are way too high – some young girls begin to get so caught up in the idea of a fairytale romance that they actually ruin their current relationship. And it sucks! Let me explain.

If you spend your entire relationship with someone expecting that it’s going to be some earth-shattering romance movie, then you’re just going to be let down. Don’t get me wrong, you need to have an idea of what you want out of a relationship, but there are some dating expectations that are just not practical. I recently came across a Reddit thread titled, “what unrealistic expectations do young women have about dating?” This sparked some pretty interesting (and sometimes annoying) comments from guys who want you to know what they are REALLY thinking. I found the best ones and wanted to show they to you since they are pretty real. So, check out these unrealistic dating expectation that you really need to forget about already.
