I've had people tell me my standards are too high. and one of my guy friends (who had wanted to date me) also told me mine were unrealistic of people. It's not that I don't have friends or guys I crush on so what to you guys would "high standards" be in a girl?

It typically means you want a guy, that is out of your league. For instance if you are an average girl that will only date a guy that is hotter than 80% of other guys. Guys that hot are looking for women that are hotter than 80% of other women, and not worried about women that are average that are only hotter than 50% of women. Simply put the types of guys she wants can do better.
It can also mean that the positive traits you have won't be of value to the type of guy you want. For example a lot of women think being successful entitles her to a successful guy. It doesn't. A woman's success will typically only be valuable to unsuccessful men, where as successful men have their own success and see no value in the woman's success because it won't improve his life any. The poor man on the other hand would generally prefer a more successful woman, but those women tend to only go after guys she perceives as being her equal.2
