But I have a few standards and, once, when I rejected a guy for not meeting them, a friend rolled her eyes and said I had to stop being so picky. Sometimes, people just aren’t attracted to someone or they don’t like something about someone – that’s not a bad thing!You don’t have to say yes to every dude who asks you out. So, I think it’s great to have standards – it’s very important to know what you want out of a relationship in order to have a fulfilling one.Sure, Brad sounds amazing but the chances of finding a guy who will actually say all these things is pretty much like randomly getting the winning lottery ticket. Has to be super tall, super ripped, employed at a great job, and will love the average looking girl instead of a supermodel.But, where did these expectations of love come from? But there is a reason why Rom-Coms are so addictive and why we enjoy it so much. Everything works out for the main character and she/he finds the perfect soulmate after experience an upsetting series of events (usually).But at the same time, I think it’s also really important to be open to dating people who aren’t your usual “type.” Being open to new people can sometimes lead you to some awesome experiences and being too closed off can hurt you sometimes.Here are 8 signs that your standards are too high: It's okay to have a checklist of what you want in a future relationship... Saying things like, "I want someone loyal, funny, outgong, who has a good job, etc." is fine.
The Fear Factor: It goes without saying that it’s not so great if you fall into the extremely picky camp. What causes someone to be so picky and overly discerning? Extreme pickiness is a giant blob of defense mechanisms with an underlying fear of a real long-term romantic relationship.
I kind of hate when people say someone is “too picky” just because they have standards.
I consider myself a pretty open person – I don’t really have a type and I’ve given all sorts of guys chances, some that worked out and some that didn’t.
Extremely Picky: Deep down, you want to be with someone but can’t seem to find the right fit.
You spend more time being single than in relationships, and you have a habit of finding a range of faults in prospective dates.
