I was once told that the reason I wasn’t in a relationship was because I was too picky. I thought about that for a long time and even thought wow, maybe I should be less so. And then it hit me. THANK GOD I’m picky. Why wouldn’t I be?
From what I see with people in relationships and circumstances in which they are incredibly unhappy or at the very least compromising their best selves, I would say that we are simply not picky enough.
