High Standards

'Love is an obsessive compulsive disorder easily cured by marriage.'

Thank you for subscribing to The Battle of the Sexes Newsletter, in conjunction with my website https://www.the-battle-of-the-sexes.com

It is a good thing to have high standards. We all should strive to be the best person we can be, and we should hunt out other people with high standards and make ourselves comfortable mixing with them. We all want the best we can get in our lives and in our relationships. But there is such a thing as setting our standards TOO high.

Are you single because nobody is good enough for you? Are your standards impossible to live up to? Do you reject a potential partner because his shoes could be cleaner, because of her hairstyle, because of a myriad of little things which don’t really matter?

Let’s face it, nobody is perfect. Not even me. I know I am a Sex God and the greatest lover since Casanova, yet still I am not quite perfect. But I have never rejected a potential partner because she wasn’t good enough.

How can you tell if your expectations are unreasonable? Do you have a lot of relationships which don’t last very long? Do you meet somebody attractive, great, funny, etc, then realise that they simply aren’t good enough? Then that is more likely to be YOUR fault than theirs. Most of us could happily fall in love with dozens of different partners and live with them happy ever after, if only we weren’t so fussy about little things. Changing a hairstyle or how we dress is a lot easier than looking for somebody who is perfect in every way. Remember, nobody is perfect. If you are looking for perfection, you are bound to be disappointed.

For once in my lifetime, it seems that we men are winning the battle of the sexes. I never thought I would see the day, but then I came across this article about Genetics and The Battle of the Sexes
