Why do so many people have such low standards for relationships?

Oh, she demands we listen to her music? Whatever. Oh, he does drugs? Whatever. Oh, she's a total b[b]i[/b]tch? Whatever. Oh, he's just using me for sex? Whatever. Oh, she refuses to talk about important issues? Whatever. Oh, he doesn't tell me I'm pretty? Whatever. How can people enter into or stay in a relationship that simply isn't a good relationship? I would never date a girl who smokes, does drugs, or yells a lot. I would never date a girl who is controlling, b[b]i[/b]tchy, or rude. I would never date a girl who doesn't like to be intimate, who won't make sacrifices for me, or who abuses animals. How can people be so lenient in their relationships?

    For you I was a flame Love is a losing game Five story fire as you came Love is a losing game One I wish I never played Oh, what a mess we made And now the final frame Love is a losing game Played out by the band Love is a losing hand More than I could stand Love is a losing hand Self professed, profound Till the chips were down Know youre a gambling man Love is a losing hand Though I battle blind Love is a fate resigned Memories mar my mind Love is a fate resigned Over futile odds And laughed at by the gods And now the final frame Love is a losing game [b]MORAL OF THE STORY: LOVE = LOSE DESTINY = [u]WIN[/u] MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE![/b]

    • Short answer? It's because they have low standards for themselves. It's hard to believe you need a worthwhile partner when you don't believe yourself to be a worthwhile person.

      • Various reasons/excuses. People like being miserable and complaining, but doing NOTHING about it. It may be cruel to say,some people are just doormats, They get cheated on,abused,used,etc knowing these things,do nothing. People stay together because " we've been together all this time" Like seriously,get over it. Good Sex <--- seriously, People stay together because friends say they "look good/cute together", which is more of a female and her bad advice friends problems. Some people just can't not be in a relationship regardless of being happy or not There is "But I love him/her" Their partner is crazy and they are "scared". Some People get attached and can't let go. Then there are those who seriously think they can't do any better. Then "but we have a Kid" ...this really makes no sense when the party in question provides 0 support. These are all things people have told me or what I've drawn from them at one time or another. I agree with you,I wound't get into a relationship If she has traits/habits I'm CLEARLY against or don't agree with. I think your post could use a [i]little[/i] clarification, I think that's why some are taken it as you need to have compromise. Most of those issues outside of the drugs seem like little things. Example. This girl is perfect for me in every way. BUT she only listens to dub-step.

      • Because sex and they want to feel loved. I personally won't date someone who's over the top with compliments, gives too much affection, or doesn't like the same music as I do. When you're in a car ride that lasts a few hours, you'll understand why. Of course I'm also a bit older than the rest of you and I'm looking for someone to kind of settle down with. I kind of want to be picky with my hopeful life partner, you know.

                  If love is there then tolerance should be there too. Listen to her music if she wants you to; it's OK, you can still love her, she can still love you, it's just music. If she doesn't understand that you have as much a right to listen to your music as she does to listen to hers then that's her problem, and if troubles arise from it then that's her doing. But relationships will only last (and should only last) when there's love from both sides, and if at any time there stops being love from both sides then that's a sign that something isn't working; anything else is inconsequential really. So what if she does drugs all the time? So what if she doesn't have a job? If you love her and she loves you then there isn't a problem with the relationship. If you don't like something about her, don't assume you will be able to change it, or that you can force her to change it by blackmailing her with the "if you love me you'll stop doing drugs" card. If you enter a relationship with that attitude, it will be short and end bitterly. [b]Love who she is, not who she could be.[/b] Let me make it clear though, love and lust are very different animals and relationships won't survive on lust alone. If the only thing she wants you for is sex or money then drop it; a relationship like that is poisonous and can only end badly for one or both of you. How do you tell between when she loves you and when she just wants your money? You'll have to be the judge of that yourself.

                    • It all starts off great. A few months down the line you notice a few red flags but it's all okay, you're in the honeymoon period and he/she are perfect. Then you fall in love, but at the same time those flags are getting more and more. But you're in a committed relationship now and you grow used to their companionship. You tell yourself there's no one else like them. Then one day it all comes crashing down and you're left to pick the pieces up. After a bad few months you realise it was a bad relationship and you're better off without it.

                            • A lot of relationships involve both people taking all that they can whilst giving as little as possible, too.

                                I agree with you completely, I don't understand it. If my girlfriend forced her music upon me instead of being totally fine with my choices, or if she was controlling and just in it for sex, or even if she couldn't be honest with me and let me know if something was wrong, I wouldn't want to be in a relationship with her.

                                    • The most obvious answer for guys is sex. We let it control our decisions. At least until we feel a real connection then that's hard to walk away from. For women I think they're hardwired to want to "fix" us. Sadly it rarely works out but by then there's babies and feelings involved. Can't make the heart not love.
