Standards in dating
if not, start NOW), Mindy’s friends accuse of her of being too picky when it comes to dating.
I realized that it had very little to do with the men, but more to do with how the women approached dating.
That’s one of the many reasons why dating’s the worst for women with high standards. Unfortunately, dating involves a lot of BS’ing around about who’s going to text first and who’s going to initiate the first kiss. We have friends who can pretend that their cheating boyfriends are good guys, but we can’t follow in their footsteps. That’s why our first dates hardly ever lead to second dates. Men are used to women skating around their feelings, which is why they can be a little thrown off when we tell them exactly what we’re looking for.
We hate ourselves for letting him play those mind games and for spending so much time praying he’d call us. The whole “ignorance is bliss” thing just doesn’t work for us. But we know what we want and aren’t afraid to let everybody know it.
Dating sucks in general, but it’s even worse for women who know what they deserve.
After all, we can’t settle for someone decent when we know that we’re meant to be with someone special. They don’t want to put in the effort to make us feel special or to dress up when we go out to dinner.
There’s nothing wrong with that, even though they think there is. Even if a guy seems nice, we’ll eventually find a flaw or two.
