I see this trend almost continuously with people that get married in their early 20's, as they grow up and change, by the time they are in their late 20's they are completely different people.

The moral of the story is be single and get to know yourself and what you want, then find someone that meets those requirements. I have been told for years that "your standards are too high" which is nothing more than an attribute to people giving in and settling.

Nobody can understand how I found my unicorn but she had the exact same mindset.

Hold yourself to higher standards, you deserve exactly what you get.
Thanks Dr. Laura with your facts that you just made up.

I think finding your perfect soulmate is a fantasy. Like you've said everyone changes over time so what's perfect for you in the late 20s may not be in your 40s. More important is to find someone that is 80% perfect, and can communicate well enough to work out the 20% of the issues left over.

If you set your standards high for perfection you're only setting yourself for disaster. What happens if she doesn't meet your high standards 20 years down the road? Are you going to divorce her?

In the end, we all compromise on the small things for a healthy relationship. I wouldn't want to marry someone who's exactly like me, that'll be like sucking my own d1ck.

agree. you don't fall in love with the perfect person, you decide to love someone and a relationship is transient. both you and your partner will change over time, but if you both have decided to love one another forever, then you go with the flow.

Ask yourself how many people you personally know and are close with that are married. Then ask yourself if you yourself are married or have ever been close to being married. Then ask yourself why you posted in this thread.

I think this is perfectly put. I'm not married or even close but this seems pretty spot on. No one is perfect, soul mates do not exist, learn to adapt and be patient and you should be good.

I'd say a good percentage of people do this but not nearly as much as you think.

I know a lot of people that meet someone in their late 20's and just say fuuck it, they're good enough.

Sounds nice an relaxing. I was thinking Europe but realized I'd probably stress more than anything else. Decided just to do the beach thing for a couple of weeks.

My wife and I did Paris, Amsterdam and Koln (Germany) over 2 weeks for our honeymoon last summer and it was fantastic and low stress. Everyone is different, though.

I thought either tahoe or bodega bay.

I just want to get drunk and have sex for a week straight. I have seen stuff. I don;t want to spend 14 hours on a plane. I am a member of the mile high club. by myself and with another person.
plusa I don;t want to be that far away from my daughter.

I know myself and my fiance well enough to know that it would be stressful. And out of our budget .

We have a long flight to our destination (~10 hours total air time each way). But everything else is very local. And since we're doing two weeks, we won't feel like we spent the entire trip in airports or on the plane itself.
