“Male or female, it’s hard to respect someone who has no standards. A standard is a level of quality. This level of quality can be socially defined or defined by you. Having standards means that you respect yourself enough to reject what is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Having standards helps us be selective and make better choices.” From Black Girls Guide: How to Find & Choose the Right Man
What You Can Do:
- Create your own standards. What are they?
- Be what you seek in your significant other to ensure that your standards are reasonable.
- Learn to be consistent with your standards to achieve maximum results when dating.
