  • Probably only as far as looks goes but not moral standards. I can't be super picky when it comes to looks until I can get back into the game a little bit For now I'll take what I can get until I'm successful then I'll go for the higher grade later. I've been out of the game for a long time and haven't even tried. But I have to be attracted to the girl or it's a no go. I also realize that I get attached easy and I might grow fond of her and I may not want to break away

  • No sir! I have been single 10 years now and if anything I have tightened up my standards! I refuse to be one of those people that's in an unhappy relationship because I settled on the first guy that showed me a little attention! I get warned all the time if I don't lower my standards or find a guy soon, I will be alone the rest of my life...

    Good.

    Sometimes it's better to be alone and happy, than with someone just for the sake of being in a relationship.

    • really could not have phrased this any better. I feel the same way

  • No, I'm a girl. As I get older, my dating market value will increase. That's why I don't let guys touch me. I bet when I'm in my 30s and want to get married, a guy will take me seriously. Plus I can't stand thirsty people who can't be alone. It points to low self esteem.

  • No I don't. I would rather maintain my standards because you can then spot the ones you are looking for much easier

  • No. The only reason I would have a relationship is so that the standards are met. To lower that would be to lower the goal of the relationship, and I have no interest in a relationship that has a different goal than what I'm looking for.

    • I wouldn't blame you

    • Show All
    • @GetOutTheWay: Wow...

    • @piteka5 I'm not a huge flirt either. I hate flirting, people touching me, etc. In HS i used to act bubbly and attract lots of males. But now I'm a straight resting bitch face kind of chick. But the gay guy I had a crush on and I clicked because of it.. damn, I liked him too.

  • Never, however my first couple of dating experience didn't really have a high standard to begin with because I was fairly inexperienced, didn't know what I wanted in a partner.

  • I like being single, so no. There's no gain in having a relationship with someone that doesn't meet the basic expectations you have in a partner.

  • No, i already know why I’m single now which is because I don’t put myself out there. I don’t think I’ll change my standards ever. I think my standards are reasonable and backed by logic.
