Dating challenge

It feels almost as if dating is now a competition where the wealthy, the well connected, the young the 'beautiful, and the handsome are rewarded with relationships and successful dating.The way people seem to date nowadays is in what ever way media, online blogs and articles, relationship magazines and films tell them to act.The influence of fads and fashions and the need to be the stereotypical male or female as the media dictates becomes impossible to live up to.As someone who struggles in a hand to mouth existence, in an out of work struggle with health getting anywhere near being a suitable partner for anyone has become more and more illusive.You can and should expect high standards, says Schwartz, “but the difference is between looking for very good versus the very best.” As you can imagine, the maximizer’s quest for perfection comes at a cost.In general, maximizers are less satisfied and more prone to depression than satisficers, which makes sense—if you refuse everything but the absolute best, you probably won’t end up with very much.

Denmark partly owes its surplus of smiles to a practice called “hygge,” which means finding joy in normal, everyday life.Passing up whatever came down the pike easily meant starving or being murdered by a predator.And, when it came to mating, proximity was pretty much the only thing that mattered—even up until the last century.Naturally, the smarter, more satisfying option is to be a satisficer.Not only do satisficers experience less FOMO (fear of missing out), but they are also much happier than maximizers.
