Why You Should NEVER Lower Your Standards Just For Love [VIDEO]


It'll only hurt your dating game in the long run. Trust us.

It's no secret that women are told that their expectations for love are way to high on a daily basis. For some reason, people interpret being cautious in the dating field as a sign that women have a fear of settling—As if we are so afraid that our guy won't live up to their expections that we would rather put up a wall. Well, we're here to debunk that myth. Having high expectations isn't always a bad thing.

In fact, dating expert Dr. Karin Anderson firmly believes that women should not lower their standards just to find a husband. There's nothing wrong with having a mental list of what we're looking for in a guy. But rather than give up on your wants and needs, you should try to make compromises. This can include:

• Taking interest in some of the things that he likes to do (even when it isn't that appealing to you)

• Making a trade-off on how much time you spend together/what you do when you're together

But there are also some things that you should never compromise when it comes to your love life. In fact, sacrificing them for the sake of a relationship will only set yourself up for heartbreak. After hearing Dr. Karin Anderson's advice, you'll see why giving up certain givings won't guarantee that your relationship will last.
