35 Times People’s High Dating Standards Got Them Ridiculed Online

Published 10 months ago

The fairytale love story beckons us all with its promise of a princess falling in love with her prince charming. Where the match is literally made in heaven. Where two people come together in perfect harmony. Until reality hits, and your options are in front of you, apparently just a frog and a donkey. If you pick the frog, he may change into a prince despite its unappealing nature. If you pick the donkey, maybe you’ll be its perfectly matched dragon mate with a love like no other even though you two couldn’t be more different from each other in every sense. But the crux is, love isn’t always packaged the way you expect so you have to take a chance to discover your happily ever after.

However, in today’s complex dating landscape ridiculous dating standards have become increasingly prevalent. Folks tend to get on dating apps like Tinder expecting a partner to fulfil an exhaustive checklist of physical, emotional, and financial criteria amongst others. These standards often overshadow genuine connections in a world that is already too dependent on technology. Below, we have compiled some of the most ridiculous examples of dating standards and expectations people hold others to, but these are just a pinch of salt in a sea that has plenty of “fish” in it.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
