4. There's Nothing Wrong with Having Standards

There's Nothing Wrong with Having Standards

I always tell my single friends that there is no need to settle. It's a good idea to have a "list" of "criteria" you would like a guy to meet.

You don't need to just be content to have a man who has no job, no interest in ever having a job or trade of any kind and likes to play XBox all day and party all night. But at the same time, keep your "list" and "criteria" loose. If you have such high standards that no guy will ever be able to meet them, you may end up alone forever! Remember that guys are human just like you and give them some space to live. Also, don't pass by a perfectly nice guy with your nose in the air just because you think you deserve a prince or a king.
