10 Signs You're Being WAY Too Picky

Say What!? 17

We get it. You want the perfect relationship with the perfect guy and the perfect marriage with the 2.5 perfect children and a white picket fence. Who can blame you for wanting the best for yourself?

The problem is that there is no "perfection" in the world - at least, not the world we live in. Instead, we make do, muddle along, and do the best we can.

So when you're dating and mating, don't be too picky - but don't be too permissive either! Here are some signs that you might have impossible standards.

1) You refuse to go on a date with a guy who has facial hair in his online profile picture because he MIGHT look too scuzzy.

2) You refuse to date anyone who cannot properly punctuate a sentence. Sure, it's annoying, but really, who doesn't love extra commas?

3) You refuse to consider a guy's offer to buy you a drink because you "hate that pickup line."

4) You dump a guy because you loathe the way his friends act in public - even though he's very well behaved.

5) You refuse to consider dating anyone who is vegan, vegetarian, or eats gluten-free because it "limits the places you can eat."

6) You break up with a great guy because he loves the band Rush.

7) You break up with a dude because he sees a therapist, even though you know that perfectly normal people see therapists, too.

8) You refuse to date a guy who has cats because you figure he's a Mama's boy.

9) You assume ALL men are Mama's boys.

10) You refuse a date with a guy whose last name you don't like - just in case you get married. Don't want to be saddled with a bad last name!

What are some other signs you're being too picky when it comes to dating? Have you ever been guilty of this?
