Do you have unrealistic expectations about your relationship?
Your partner is not responsible for your happiness
In a perfect world, we would have a perfect partner and a perfect relationship (whatever that might be). But we don't live in a perfect world, and we're all imperfect humans. This means that we have strengths and weaknesses, and we certainly have flaws. Nonetheless, it's safe to say that all of us enter a romantic relationship with a number of expectations. This is absolutely normal, and indeed not a bad thing. Though it does get a bit tricky when we set unrealistic expectations, and, sadly, this happens more frequently than not.
In this gallery, we look at what expectations should be considered realistic, and those many of us have that are, in fact, unrealistic. Click through and see if you can identify any of these in your own relationship.
