    , You set your standards too high . Voice B says, Men are iteamiditnd by you, learn how to let a man be a man , Voice C says, No man will meet your standards, you are living in a fairytale . These are statements that may be very unsettling for some of us who may have a no tolerance policy . Is there such thing as setting standards too high in regards to looking for a significant other? and if so, how do we (can we) lower our standards without changing who we are, what we accept, and what we believe in?I whole heartedly believe, as women climb those stairs of success educationally,financially,emotionally,et cetera, we develop a catch me if you can attitude when dating is concerned. In other words, if you want me, come and get me, ( this signifying he has to reach the same amount of success as she, and be strong in all areas) . this mechanism may not allow ALL men a chance. (including those men who may have skipped over the education stair, or fell down the financial stair) however they are capable of providing emotional love and support. How can we as women, continue to climb those stairs of success, without excluding the men who lack in some areas, but are strong in other areas? The response posted above states, When you are more spiritual about your mate, material things like his income, his education level and his ethnicity and color will not matter .Valid statement, however, society may not see the spirituality,sincerity, and authenticity behind a women confiding in a man who may not appear to obtain, or maintain corresponding success How do we deal with this matter of needing to have something(someone) to show and prove? .

    Never having been to Africa, I can only agimine what the saying means to Africans, but, to me it addresses the universal need to reframe and find meaning in the hard times and to engage in and relish the good moments. Healing, healthy laughter can used to accomplish either goal.
