One of our readers has asked for advice from the blog. Her friends and family tell her that she should be more realistic about what she wants in a mate. She is seeking someone who brings what she does to the table: in shape, educated, ambitious, and attractive.
Because people tell her she has met and dated this type before, they wonder if she uses these standards as an excuse to avoid relationships. She wants to know if anyone has tried to “compromise” on their standards. Does it work? If you switch up what you are seeking, can you find someone compatible?
Have you ever had to get a reality check on your expectations? Would you suggest leaving your comfort zone and reevaluating what you find attractive?
