Back then I wondered, “Is there something wrong with me?
” Then I did the work and got a better understanding about myself and dating in general. The fact of the matter is, although relationships end for all kinds of reasons and can end at any time, statistics like this average dating window just can’t be ignored.
One of the biggest things I teach my clients is to know your dating Non-Negotiables with a capital N.
These are also known as the “deal-breakers” in a relationship.
These partners come in many forms; for example, they might not have the height criteria they were looking for, but is still an amazing person and possibly partner.
Unrealistic expectations in a partner can prompt, quick, and often unfair, dating decisions that can end quality relationships before they have a chance to blossom.
Second, once they are in a relationship and things are not going so well, the need for instant gratification prompts them to quit the relationship.
