Bini posted a topic in General DiscussionThis article was shared on my Facebook feed (http://www.theonion.com/articles/few-more-items-knocked-off-list-of-desirable-trait,36412/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=LinkPreview:NA:InFocus) and I found it to be a bit depressing. I'll agree that not everything listed is vital but some preferences will always be preferences, and if you go with something else, you might be setting yourself up for a failed relationship in the long run. I guess you just have to ask yourself what you really can and can't live with. So when do we start lowering our expectations? Is it when we think there's no one out there? And we're running out of time with our biological clock ticking? My husband was 40-years old and had never been married. He'd been setup on lots of dates by friends and family, but was never interested enough to commit. For years, his mother said he was too picky and needed to lower his expectations. Shortly after, we met and had a pretty good connection, good enough we got married. Needless to say, we're both glad he hadn't settled. If he had, we wouldn't have the life together we have now, or our beautiful daughter.
