When most women think about a relationship, they think about a man who meets all of their criteria. She thinks about a man who is not only physically attractive, but also the man who can provide her with everything she needs. After all, a woman can't expect anything else when that is all that is portrayed in the media. These high expectations often leave a woman terribly disappointed when a man does not meet all of her expectations. Little does she realize, however, that although he may not be a perfect man, he may be the man who is perfect for her.
Love is often inexplicable. Have you ever seen a couple and wondered how THOSE two people could end up together? She may be highly educated and he may have never graduated from high school. Or, she may be incredibly beautiful but he may be not so pleasant to look at. It is important for you to remember, however, that their relationship goes far beyond what you see on the surface. Love knows no boundaries and when you have found it, it's hard to let go. So, you may have the perfect man or woman right in front of you, but you may be to afraid to admit it because he or she isn't what you expected. It may be wiser to give this person a chance and embrace the love he or she has to give. You may live to regret it if you don't.
Nothing is Ever Perfect
We often think of perfection as being without flaws. In fact, the Merriam Webster dictionary defines perfection as:
- "having no mistakes or flaws
- satisfying all requirements
- corresponding to an ideal standard or abstract concept"
However, this concept of perfection is only possible in a utopian society. There is no human being who has no mistakes or flaws and will meet every item on your checklist. Stop looking for perfection because perfection doesn't exist.
This concept is especially true for the survival of a relationship. When a partner in a relationship either makes a mistake or does not meet up to the other's expectations, most couples are ready to call it quits. If you view your relationship as imperfect, however, you will be better able to work through the mistakes and problems and therefore strengthen your relationship.
The Best Relationship is a Happy Relationship
Essentially, the best relationship is one in which both partners are happy. Happiness means different things to different people so it is important for you to find out what makes both you and your partner happy. Believe it or not, the couples you believe have the "perfect" relationships have their fair share of challenges. However, they have learnt to deal with their issues together and find happiness with each other. That's what keeps some people happily married for over 50 years. Start creating a happy relationship instead of trying to create a perfect one.
