Given the past experiences many people have to deal with, and the current problems that most people face in daily life, is it fair to expect people to be 'ideal' mates, especially when we first meet them?
Most of us aren't our best under pressure, and most of us are under quite a bit of it!

I feel like I relate to this question a lot. My ex apparently really liked me when we first start getting to know each other. And I was under a lot of stress at that time dealing with current issues and getting over past experiences. When he really got to know me more my broken and stressed side began to come out more and it really hurt me because he couldn't deal with it. I would have appreciated if he was the one who'd stand by my side and actually support me through my challenges. Yet at the same time I wouldn't feel like it'd be fair for me to drag him into my crap. Rather he chose to stand by my side through thick and thin was up to him.0
