This is a topic that bothers me a ton because I always hear people saying how they want this and that from their future boyfriend/girlfriend, and there’s an ongoing list. People expect their soul mate to be perfectly how they have imagined them in their mind, and it’s absolutely insane. Realize that there are good and bad qualities to every human being on this planet. You’ll win some, and you’ll lose some.
Don’t go around expecting a model boyfriend or girlfriend because chances are, it might not ever happen. You can argue how you should always have hope in what you believe in, but in this case, it’s hard to find and date a supermodel when there’s seven billion people in the world. You should go around looking for a partner with an open mind. Don’t let your limits and restrictions hold you back from anyone you like. I find that a lot of people these days just don’t seem to care about their boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s personality, but just simply their looks, which is so unfortunate. Not everything is all about looks. Would you rather date someone who is really attractive, but treats you like trash? or someone who genuinely cares about you whose decent looking? I would choose the second option, and I hope y’all would too!
I think this is a common problem because people base their dream boyfriend/girlfriend off of people they’ve seen on television, in movies, and models they’ve seen on social media. Girls expect their boyfriends to have abs, have muscles, be tall with a height of around 6’0, and have nice hair, eyes, and lips. Guys expect their girlfriends to have big breasts, a flat stomach, curves, a nice butt, be an average height of around 5’0, and also have sparkling eyes, long hair, and soft, plump lips. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that, everyone nowadays expect their soul mate to be P-E-R-F-E-C-T.
I can’t necessarily think of a way to solve this problem because that would involve changing everyone’s opinions, which is impossible. Changing opinions of seven billion people sounds quite exotic to me. This problem can’t be solved by just one person, but it would involve all of the seven billion people on this planet to change and lower their sky high expectations. I believe that the only way to solve this problem is for everyone to stop expecting so much and to stop being so shallow.
