When your standards are too high

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

True.

Years ago, a lady told me her daughter picked another guy over me and another guy just because the guy she picked had two full years of college already. I had only a BA and the other failed guy got only an MA.

Don't tell me she's a pretty gal, right? Have you ever heard this phrase before, "even the prettiest girl has the ugliest personality to spend the rest of your life with?"  ???

I think it depends where you are in life and what youíre looking for in the other person.  Some preferences/standards can be overlooked, while others canít.   ;D

women should always set high standards, but play easy to get!  they can get any man they want, from high to low!

She's pretty. Got all three of us visiting frequently.

I agree with you on the "ugliest personality" analysis.

Don't tell me she's a pretty gal, right? Have you ever heard this phrase before, "even the prettiest girl has the ugliest personality to spend the rest of your life with?"  ???

Your expectation should go down with age. 

At my age, I bump ugly when no one is looking  :2funny:

Women have too much load of options thanks to social media. Even the most unattractive (inside or out. Or both) woman thinks shes all that.

Anyway, a high value male donít chase women. Become the man she wants and she'll follow.

+1.  Hehehe.  That's so true.  Standards change as we age.  My standards when I was younger were: is he a guy, is he good looking, is he nice?  That was it. ;D  Then as I got older and smarter and wiser, my standards went from those things to a lot more, and requiring him to: not be lazy, be ambitious, be a good father, be a good provider, be a good partner, be smart and intelligent, be able to make my heart skip a beat when I look at him, be loving/caring/kind, be a good kisser, be non-smelly, have same religious and political views, have same interests/same values/same goals, etc.  Oh, he doesn't need to be super good looking anymore either.  Just as long as he is clean and I want to kiss him nonstop.   :D

I disagree.  A high value man still needs to chase a high value woman.  If he doesn't chase, the high value woman will say bye bye.  The high value woman also needs to show interest and stop playing hard to get.  She needs to know what she wants and when she sees a high value man, she needs to tell that guy that she wants him.  If they acknowledge value in each other and chase each other equally, then match made in heaven. :)

Actually, this really depends on how dominant the man is in the relationship. If the man's frame or reality is the stronger one, and the woman respects him/is attracted to him, then she will definitely change to be more in line with whatever he brings out in her. In other words, he will lead and she will follow.

In a case such as this, usually the dominate one will lead and lesser one does the chase.

OK.  I agree.  The chasing may not be super obvious but yes, sometimes one partner chases the other more and it can go back and forth with the one that was being chased doing the chasing sometimes. :)
