Youíve all heard the stories, high school sweethearts who get married, best friends who fall in love, or the girl next door who turns out to be your soul mate. But the truth is, these lucky few belong to a minority. Most of us spend a large chunk of our lives looking for our perfect match, and the journey can often be riddled with frustration and disappointment. Whether you admit it to yourself or not, we each tend to set certain conditions and standards for our potential mate, thus setting ourselves up for disappointment and frustration when these expectations are not met.
Do you enjoy doing things together?
†Iíll be honest, my expectation list was pretty long, and paramount was the fact that my partner shares my religious faith. As my years in the dating game went by, the list of expectations lessened, but the ultimate condition that she share my faith remained. I surprised myself by throwing my entire list of expectations away at one point, because I told myself that my most important condition was still being met, I only dated girls who shared my faith. So you can imagine my consternation when I met someone recently who rekindled my list by meeting almost all my expectations, but not sharing my faith.
What would you do if you were in my situation?
