Making decisions of all kinds can be challenging, especially when it comes to the New York scene. Fast-paced, precise, logical and always on your toes are some must have characteristics needed in your biological make-up. When it comes to dating and relationships knowing what you’re looking for in a mate is better than just going for whatever comes your way.
Since when did having standards become a bad thing? Having too many can be a setup for failure. Let’s face it, truth be told no one is perfect. However, having precise standards establishes a guide for everyday life and conditions. From work to everyday life having some type of standard keeps things in order. The thought of being single does strike fear in the heart of most individuals. However, making those unsettling compromises just to have someone special in your life can be the worst move of all.
This next activity may sound sooooo high school but it’s a true test of where your standards fall. You can do this alone or with some close friends. Make a list of what you want in a mate and put down everything that comes to mind. In this process be sure to really think about what are the “hardcore-can’t-get-around-standards” and those that can be compromised.
Review your list and rate your standards, are they too high or too low? Honesty is KEY to answering this question. Self-awareness is a corner stone for most endeavors in life. When it comes to finding the individual to that is meant for you, knowing where your standards are is a start. Remember, if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything!!!
