I realized that my problem and the problem of most women is not having standards when it comes to dating. We are unsure where our borders lie, what we consider healthy and normal behavior. We become too accommodating, too tolerant, and too understanding—which eventually comes back to bite us.

I am talking about normal behavior that we often give to our loved one but forget to ask for ourself. We give our heart, body and mind into a relationship without expecting anything in return and as a result, we usually end up with somebody toxic.

To avoid this kind of behavior, we need to set our standards loud and clear, first to ourself and then to our potential or current partner:. If you are treating somebody with the utmost respect, you should expect the same in return—or show them the door. Have a standard that says half-assed men, half-assed promises, and half-assed feelings are not welcome in your life. He will make time for you no matter how busy he is. He will remember to text you. He will call you and make plans for you guys to go out. If he cares, he will make it work. You should be able to treat him like your best friend, somebody you can go to everything with, and not fear that he will use your words or emotions against you.

Because you are doing the same for the other side. You are accepting their perfections and their flaws as parts of them. You are perfect in your imperfections. You are unique, worthy and one of a kind. And for the right man, you will be more than enough. Relationships are built for two and they demand the same amount of effort from both parties involved. It seems a bit redundant to say this, but there are times where we are so deeply in love with somebody that our heart stops listening to our mind.

We think our love will suffice, that we have so much love inside of us that it will be enough for two. But it never is. Motivational Words: All-embracing Inspirational Phrases.

To avoid this kind of behavior, we need to set our standards loud and clear, first to ourself and then to our potential or current partner: 1. Expect attention, affection and time Those are not things you should beg for. When a man is into you, you will know. Expect an honest conversation Your life partner should be somebody you can trust completely. Somebody who stands by his words. He should be someone you share all your happiness and sorrows with. Expect to be accepted for who you are Because you are doing the same for the other side. You are always there for him, no matter the circumstances, so expect him to give you the same.

Expect love It seems a bit redundant to say this, but there are times where we are so deeply in love with somebody that our heart stops listening to our mind.
