  3. Simple answer: Because 95% of moronic people cannot separate movies, TV, magazines, radio, social media etc etc etc from the reality of a living, breathing right in their face relationship!!!!!!! The enemy who controls all things media is by far winning the culture war through hammering home in every family home “”DISCONTENTMENT” and is his major message he sews constantly through media and 95% of people worldwide are swallowing this message whole sale!! That peeps is why the world is the way it is today and people are just blindly following along LOL!!!

    Peace,

  4. IMO, I believe these factors have contributed to setting up unrealistic expectations for relationships today…

    Early relationship infatuation. When many people are in the early phases of a relationship, everything is great, time flies when they are together, and everything is new and fresh, and there are hardly any bad thoughts. When the euphorbia of that initial infatuation ebbs, and reality sets in, they no longer experience the same high.
    TV and movies (esp western culture entertainment). Be it rom coms, Leave it to Beaver, Disney princesses, or Hallmark movie mysteries, most entertainment in the western culture shows picture an idyllic family situation where there’s almost always a happy ending. Real life if much more complicated, and happiness is fleeting, as there are always new obstacles popping up. I would note, if you watch Asian movies, especially Korean or Chinese movies, they have more realistic themes of sacrifice, and settling for the situation (which is often considered a happy ending).
    In a similar vein, social media and advertising. I classify this slightly different than TV and movies, as this tries to portray actual real life. From bikini bods, chiseled abs, luxury cars, and exotic vacations. It shows snipits of a perfect life, but in reality, it’s a highly contrived sound bite. It’s like watching a commercial for a frozen dinner on TV, it’s looks fresh, tasty, huge portions… but when you cook one at home, it’s a bit underwhelming.
    Lastly, this one is just as old as time. Peer pressure, and keeping up with your friends. Everyone want’s to appear successful, but it’s not easy in most relationship, there’s always give & take, but people pretend it’s easy.

  5. Magazines, television, romance novels. I heard a saying once from a woman. Women go into a relationship thinking she can change him. Men go into a relationship thinking she won't change. Both are always wrong

  6. We are told these days form all forms of media that we can have more. The internet has given everyone an inflated sense of their own value and that if they keep looking they will find a higher value mate than they have

  7. Define your terms. What do you mean by “unrealistic expectations”? Are you referring to when they meet or when they decide to make it last?

  8. This is why a long courtship is recommended before marriage so you can see the other person for what they really are and not for the fantasy that you have of them. Unrealistic relationship expectations are what keeps the divorce lawyers fed and clothed and living in very expensive houses.

  9. Because they are selfish and haven’t learned how to love it or what love is . I just want to trust my partner , if they want to leave don’t cheat just leave . They should be understanding and considerate of your wants and needs. That’s all I can ask for . When you look for details and fairytales your never going to get that nor should you expect that . Are you a fairytale partner , if so better jump in a book and find Prince Charming bc he isn’t on this planet. Just look for someone who has the same values as you and interests. Someone who basically says you alone are enough for them to be happy.

  10. Ahh, let's see. Influenced by social media, crazy people on YouTube (who are more concerned about the amount of ‘likes' than actually giving proper content). Parents raising their children and telling them they are ‘special' and the world is all for their taking. Shall I go on?

    So, you see, people in general are out for themselves. “Why should I do anything for my SO? If they want me bad enough, they will do what I need".

    Have you ever gone on some dating site and seen the requirements put out by people? “Must be tall, must be handsome, must be financially successful and treat me like a queen”. Yeah, sure, thats the way to a glorious relationship!

    Me, me, me, me, me! Gey it?

    No one wants to bend, and it's up to the other to satisfy my wants because I'm so special, my momma told me so.

    Unrealistic expectations happen because instead of people giving 100% to the relationship, they show up with “High, I'm here and I'm pretty, now you owe me.

    *Disclaimer — I am writing this from a male perspective but the rules apply to both sides, so ladies please don't hate.
