It’s easy to think you’re asking too much in a dating age where the bare minimum is tolerated, and subpar gestures are rewarded. The sad truth is, it’s typical to be labeled as high maintenance for having normal standards. It goes without saying that we just may need a reminder of what is actually standard in relationships. Before lowering your standards or thinking you’re asking too much, check out this list of things that SHOULD be considered the bare minimum. If you’re ask
Everybody wants to believe that they can be in a “no strings attached” situation without catching feelings, but it rarely works for most people. We are not the emotional savages we pretend to be on social media. Tucking feelings isn't something that's easy to do. Most have psyched themselves into thinking they have it mastered only to later find driblets of feelings have slipped through the filter. Even the coldest of individuals are capable of falling victim to “feelings” at
Most people have a “type” that they are attracted to (or would ideally like to be with). It’s no secret that certain types are attracted to other types typically. It's like a weird law of attraction. Thus, if you are looking to attract a certain type, it would be wise to know if you fit the typical criteria for what they are looking for.

As childish as it may seem to break up to make up, middle aged adults are still doing it. Petty arguments get blown out of proportion or trust has been broken. Either way, one of the partners utters the 2 words that shift the dynamic in any relationship—it’s over. Sometimes it’s over and other times this is just a warning shot to trigger a series of events. Most couples do this on autopilot and never really understand why it keeps happening. Here are 8 reasons why we mature m
Everyone has some type of deal breaker that will cancel all hope for a potential partner. I mean… we like what we like and avoid what we don't. It’s even probably human nature to be a little on the picky side. Most of us hold ourselves at a high regard. (After all, we’re poppin’ right?) This is all understandable, but in my years of living… I have heard some of the most outlandish deal breakers known to man and I just want to share them with you, so we can all have a laugh. (
Everybody's had that time when someone says they're coming over and you're left running around trying to make sure your home looks presentable. (talk about stress!) I try to make it a point to clean like somebody's coming and maintain it. This goes along with the age old saying "if you stay ready you won't have to get ready". I think it's a good idea to apply this philosophy to relationships too. If you resolve issues in the relationship and maintain those solutions, you won'
