Its not something I admire about myself and its an ongoing struggle not to snap at people when I'm feeling impatient.
Does that mean that I can't admire and want that trait in someone else?
I can recite my needs and wants like they were the words to my all-time favorite song (Exactly' by Amy Steinberg if you're curious).
And yet here I am 110 months post-divorce I had this conversation with a first, last date a couple weekends ago.
Having said that, I do think that people are way too hung up on physical traits and the initial superficial attraction you may or not feel upon first seeing that person.
I think someone is being too picky when they "require" only tall or blond or blue eyes or white or black or skinny and don't even consider that person if they don't match their list of requirements. My attraction to someone has always been mainly about their personality.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Did your parents have a traumatic divorce when you were 10, leaving you terrified of that kind of hurt?
In this day and age of hooking up with no strings attached, I think some pickiness is healthy.
You don’t want to settle for just anyone who expresses interest in you.
Otherwise, they're a hypocrite in Freud's clothing.
I, for one, have incredibly high awareness of such things.
