Lowering your standards isn’t going to help you find love. It might help you find a relationship — but you shouldn’t be settling for any old relationship. You should be searching for THE relationship. The relationship that is going to uplift you. The relationship that is going to better you. The relationship that is going to make you feel completely at peace.
If you’re right for each other, there’s a better chance your relationship will fall apart if you don’t admit how you’re feeling, if you hide your opinions, if you pretend everything is fine in order to avoid confrontation.
