Dating sucks in general, but it’s even worse for women who know what they deserve. After all, we can’t settle for someone decent when we know that we’re meant to be with someone special. That’s one of the many reasons why dating’s the worst for women with high standards.
We hate ourselves for putting up with stupid boys. Unfortunately, dating involves a lot of BS’ing around about who’s going to text first and who’s going to initiate the first kiss. We hate ourselves for letting him play those mind games and for spending so much time praying he’d call us. We know we’re better than that.
We won’t settle for mediocre men. We have friends who can pretend that their cheating boyfriends are good guys, but we can’t follow in their footsteps. The whole “ignorance is bliss” thing just doesn’t work for us. We won’t let ourselves be blinded by our feelings.
We rarely find men worth dating. Most men in this century are lazy. They don’t want to put in the effort to make us feel special or to dress up when we go out to dinner. That’s why our first dates hardly ever lead to second dates.
We come on strong. Men are used to women skating around their feelings, which is why they can be a little thrown off when we tell them exactly what we’re looking for. But we know what we want and aren’t afraid to let everybody know it. There’s nothing wrong with that, even though they think there is.
We know someone better is always out there. Even if a guy seems nice, we’ll eventually find a flaw or two. Once that happens, we won’t know whether to continue dating him or to toss him to the side. We know no one is perfect, but we also know we can do better.
Men aren’t used to women who won’t put up with BS. They’re used to women that they can manipulate in order to get sex. When we come around, they don’t know how to talk to us, or if they even want to talk to us, because they know we aren’t going to let them get away with murder like other girls have.
Society actually criticizes us for having high standards. Whenever someone comments on how we’re “too picky,” what they’re really saying is that we should settle for someone, just so we can say we’re in a relationship. Well, screw that mindset. We’d rather be alone than in a relationship without real love.
We hold ourselves to high standards, too. Some would say we’re perfectionists. We won’t leave the house unless our eyeliner is on point and we won’t arrive at a restaurant without topics prepared. We try to be on our best behavior during dates, just in case the man we’re sitting across the table from happens to be our soul mate.
We already love ourselves. Some men are intimidated by strong, independent women who don’t actually need them to survive. They want our lives to revolve around them, and that’s never going to happen. But that’s okay, because we’re perfectly happy without them.
