Women: Your Standards Are Too Low If You Accept These 6 Things | HelloBeautiful
I am 51 years old. In the last few months I have dated women aged 34 to 52 years old. I don't smoke and prefer not to date smokers, but have in that timeframe. I don't drink but as long as the person doesn't NEED to drink I will go out with them, because I don't frequent places that serve alcohol. My religious and political views are well known, but I respect the views of others and don't discuss either on a first date.
Are your dating standards too high or too low?
I do not believe that paying for the date obligates the woman to any more than enjoyable company and conversation. I think that anything physical should come from attraction, not obligation. I feel that friends are friends because of something they enjoy in common.
Companions in relationhip represent each other publicly and discuss differences privately. Companions should be friends who consider each other's feelings in their dealings with other people.
This goes a little beyond dating, but it shows the qualities I consider in the women I date, both short term and long term. I have a few standards that must be met.
Live near by within a few hundred miles. Short as me or shorter.
But my core standards are character and values. Like honesty, no gamers or cheats. And character like dependable affectionate and caring. SO I would say with a limited list my standards are high. There are just some things I will not accept from a woman like lies or anyone else for that matter.
I am learning more about some of you then I did before and getting some great info.. I wouldnt say my standards are too high.

So no, my standards are at a good level, but I am also not going to play a "cat n mouse" game either. I do not expect perfection, however I do expect her to be responsible, respectful to others, and have a little patience.
Because I would expect them to have high standards as well - an equal Just like my profile states: So if you're honest, intuitive, perceptive, sassy - yet spontaneous, send me a note. It seems that the internet is the new dating game. I don't think there is anything wrong with that, were busy people these days. My luck has been that when I do find someone thats compatible, they live miles away from me. In my book, that's unrealistic, unless of course one or the other agrees to move.
That's probably not likely. I don't feel my standards are too high, it just seems that the simplest things we want, need, and crave are the hardest things to come by. I find myself dwelling on the fact that half of my life is over, my child will be 18 in less than 2 years and instead of dwelling, I should be overwhelmed with joy that this is MY TIME.
To some, your standards may be too high, and to others.. But maintain yours, and sooner or later the "one" will show up.
