Keeping Unrealistic Expectations
Patti reminds us, "You need to take expectations down a notch. If you have too many expectations around height, weight, income, etc., your limitations need an adjustment." She also warns, "The older we get, the more used to it we get. You may want a partner, but your list of criteria has become so long that no one is ever going to fit the bill." Instead, Patti suggests you drop the list and focus instead on how your love interest makes you feel.
