A partner with high standards?

I know some people who have not been in relationships for a long time probably are not ready to get into one or probably have too high standards. I am one of the latter and I admit, no one has really lived up to my expectations. I am considering of lowering them down but not too low because I am not that desperate. Do you have high standards when it comes to looking for a partner?

Oh yeah, but I am willing to settle most times. My last girlfriend had such a beautiful face but she was a little overweight. I actually really didn't mind. What really killed it for me was that she was so fricken lazy! She would sleep every chance she got! Bah! Anyways, yes I do, for particular traits. I don't expect anymore of a woman than I feel I am worth. Oh, and as far as your situation, let those guys down HARD. Don't be rude but definitely be frank.

Oh, lazy. Okay. Let them down hard? Always have, and probably always will. I try my best not to be rude and be frank but it's their perspective which ruins them. They think I am being very hard on them when I am not. At all. Screw them.

right, screw them. The ones that are worthy of the lesson will learn it. Others, however, will simply have to suffer the same emotions until they figure it out or just become bitter. Just because you feel someone is attractive, does not necessarily mean you should pursue them. I see attractive women everyday, I am friends with many attractive women, yet I know when to hold em' and when to fold em'. The fact that so many people can't learn this lesson is why there are so many unhappy relationships. I was intelligent enough to learn this lesson before I had to suffer, much lol

To those who cannot learn immediately, let them suffer till they notice they have it the hard way.

I don't have high standards but these days, it seems to be one because they just don't make guys just like before. I know I will. Later on.

You seem like a very analytical person and relationships are very illogical. When you find it you will know it, not with your brain but with your heart. AW WWW so sweet but oddly enough its actually true.

Honestly, I go with the 'mind over matters of the heart' junk. I guess I over think of what I think the future will be for me and a certain guy. I weigh things over, and when it isn't balanced, then it's bye-bye partner for me.

I don't think I really have high standards. For me, I have to be attracted to them and find them intellectually stimulating. I'm not going to go for the hot and dumb. Does that mean I have high standards? I don't think so. That's just two things that need to be met. And I have been attracted to not hot guys too. Chemistry is something different from physical appearance.

The same goes for me. A man with a brain but they're not that many nowadays. Most of them are just good looks with the wrong attitude.

well i do and i don't. my standers are more of how the person acts and if they are will to put up with me at times. and most important how they act when they are having a hard time putting up with me i can be a pain and i want someone who can put up with me and keep me under control.

I always had very high standards for what I look for in a partner.
