8 Reasons Why To Date Someone With High Standards AND Low Maintenance


To start things off, who wants a boyfriend or girlfriend who is constantly nagging you, asking where you're going, who you're with, what you're doing, what you're going to do, why you didn't invite them to the movie, etc.?

Yeah, nobody.

BUT...

Who wants a boyfriend or girlfriend who made you pursue them because their standards were so high because they want to date someone they trust and because they trust you, you won't constantly be receiving nagging texts and phone calls?

Yeah, me.  For sure.  Right here.

So basically, individuals with high standards but who require low maintenance are the best people to date.  (Me, for example.  Just kidding.)

Here are a few more reasons you should date one of us:

1)  We base our relationship on the passion, not the feelings.
Feelings can change with the wind.  Passion is life-long.  We don't care about symbols, Facebook relationship statuses, public displays of affection, or how often you say 'I love you' in front of others. We just need to see, sense, and know that the connection we have is real and genuine.

2)  We care about what matters, and know how to get over what doesn't.
We won't bicker over who does the dishes or cleans the toilet or vacuums the bedroom (just so long as you're carrying your weight, you know?).  But we won't let important relationship based matters slide by unnoticed.  Besides, little arguments about insignificant things usually mean that there are deeper underlying problems going on.

3)  We don't need extravagant gifts or elaborate dates.  Just make them thoughtful.
Honestly, I would rather be told to change into whatever I wanted to wear, be given a single rose, order my favorite take out food, and watch a favorite movie in a fort made of pillows in our living room...than dress up for a fancy dinner downtown.  Sure, there are special occasions for that.  But how much cheaper would it be to just stay home and snuggle?  It's thoughtful too, when the man remembers what I like or prefer and actually DOES it.

4)  We are best in a relationship when we are most comfortable being around you.
This goes hand-in-hand with the last point.  It would mean more to us if you told us how hot and gorgeous we look with shower hair, no makeup and oversized clothes, than when we make an effort to actually look attractive and that's the ONLY time you compliment us.  Quality, not quantity.  Genuine, not fake.  Often, not rare.

5)  We don't nag.  But if we see something wrong, we will be blunt and tell you straight up.  
If we continue doing this, it isn't considered nagging.  It's considered 'Wake the heck up and see that this is a real issue!'

6)  We don't expect you to never make us mad, we don't expect you to always do the dirty work, we don't expect perfection.  
We just ask that you're considerate of our feelings, fair, and act accordingly.

7)  We are level-headed, think with our brains, know what we deserve
...and likewise, what you deserve too.

8)  We are extremely loyal and trusting.
If you gain our affection, it means we trust you.  And if we trust you, it means you've reached our high standards.
Don't screw this up.  We don't have to tell you every single name and background of every single person in group we're going to see a movie with - even if the majority of them are guys.  And girls, he doesn't need to explain to you about the girl who commented 'Hey hottie' on his profile picture.  You're dating an attractive person!!  They are going to get noticed!  This isn't a competition.
They're with you.
If you truly trust them, then get over it.
If you don't, then get out.
