Standards are your morals and values.
Preferences are the things you’d like your partner to have or be.
Standards matter the most, but it’s our preferences that keep us single for too long. Does the person who is interested in you have the morals and values that you’re looking for in a partner? If so, then everything else can be worked on.
You may never find someone who meets all your preferences in the height, weight, looks, and income departments. You really need to take off all numbers off of your list and focus on the things that really matter. When you remove the numbers from your list then you’re able to see a person for who they really are and start there. As long as you can stand to look at them, they’re ok. They don’t have to be the best looking person in the world, but are they at least OK? My wife doesn’t feel like the most beautiful woman on Earth and I’m sure not the best looking, but we could stand to look at one another. Our morals and values matched and we worked from there.
Don’t let your petty preferences keep you single.
