"In a world where we celebrate the bare minimum in relationships, we tend to label women with higher standards “high maintenance.” It’s easier to placate ourselves into thinking that women who ask for less are somehow “more.” In reality, they’re more quiet. More demure. More people-pleasing. More willing to bend over backwards. More willing to take people’s shit. People assume women with lower standards are easier to deal with and thus “safer” in some way – but they’re only easier to deal with if you’re a narcissistic manipulator actively looking for someone to control rather than a compatible partner. The truth is, being “high maintenance” or a woman with high standards is rarely about being rude or abrasive – or entitled. It’s about having higher standards for what you want out of life – and that includes love." - Katerina Lolita
