A lot of single women in Philly have unrealistic dating expectations. But as Doylestown matchmakers with over 30 years of experience in the Philadelphia dating scene, we’ve seen firsthand how these impractical expectations hinder a woman’s chances of finding and keeping a man.

Blame it on Hollywood, or even our favorite fairytales, but wherever they’ve come from, it makes no difference – men cannot fulfill these unrealistic, sometimes outlandish dating and relationship expectations women hold for them.

Intelligence, wits, charm… a six-figure salary, ripped abs, and downright adorable dimples, it doesn’t matter – nobody is perfect. And if you’re one of the many single women in Philly who holds high, unrealistic dating expectations for men, you’re in for a lonely surprise.

That’s right, nobody is perfect. Read on and discover how you could be hindering your chances at love as our Doylestown matchmakers reveal the unrealistic dating expectations that keep modern women single.

1. Non-Wandering Eyes

Like it or not, it’s a known fact. Men are just known for their wandering eyes. Whether you want to admit it or not, it’s human nature – and we’re sure you’re guilty of checking out attractive men too. If your guy is blatantly ogling women while you’re out or disrespecting you, that’s one thing. But if he’s simply admiring another woman’s beauty, you can’t fly off the handle and call things off.

2. Perfectly Romantic Responses

Ugh! You just sent him a super sweet text telling him how much you miss him and can’t wait to see him after work tonight. His response? “Nice.” What?! You’ve got to be kidding, right? Your head starts spinning and pondering his true feelings. Does he really love you? Is he losing interest in you? Are his feelings fading away?

Take a deep breath, it’s nothing of the sort. Most men don’t lend perfectly romantic responses. If you’re expecting your guy to extend a lengthy and loving message expressing his inner-most feelings for you, you’re in for a big disappointment.

3. A Shared Passion for Shopping

He loves shopping AND carrying all your hot new finds? Yeah, get right! Most men loathe going shopping on their own let alone parading around with you while you prance around the mall like you do with your gal pals. If you expect your guy to share your passion for shopping, you’ll be missing out on a lot of great guys.

4. Excitement for Emotions

Not only do you expect him to be drop dead gorgeous, rich, funny, intelligent, charming and enjoy shopping, but now you want him to share his feelings too? We hate to break it to you, but you’re looking for a rare breed.

5. A Deep Desire for QT

While you should expect your guy to want to spend quality time with you, you shouldn’t expect him to want to spend all his time with you. Just like you like to do dinner and drinks with your gal pals, hit up the gym after work, and catch up with your mom on the weekends, he likes to do his own things too.

6. Over-the-Top Gestures

Skywriting how much he loves you, announcing his feelings for you on the jumbo-tron, or shouting his love from the rooftops downtown… most likely not. While we all dream of finding a man like we see on the big screen, it’s not realistic to expect your guy to engage in over-the-top gesture to prove his love for you.

While we never encourage our clients to ditch their dating expectations, we do encourage them to be realistic. And we encourage the same for you.
