Setting Expectations In Your (Dating) Life

We all do it. We have expectations for all of the people in our lives and the people we just met are no different.

There is nothing wrong with expectations. Big or small, they set the foundation for what you’re looking for in a relationship. Where we go wrong is by not communicating those expectations and then getting disappointed when one can’t meet them.

We want people to naturally do what we expect, because we think it’s the right thing to do. We don’t take into consideration what they’re used to, their circumstances, or what they believe to be right.

People can’t read your mind and they’ll never be able to meet your expectations if you don’t state them.

Next time you’re thinking about taking someone seriously, communicate what you want and they may actually surprise you and come through!

What expectations do you have that are constantly disappointing? Tell me in the comments section.
