While lowering the bar makes the game of limbo harder, when it comes to dating, lowering the bar can make it easier. People can exceed expectations when you have low expectations of them to begin with, and it's easy to get into the habit of accepting the bare minimum. But you deserve more (way more!) from a partner than them simply existing, and it's a lesson that can take women decades to learn.

A Reddit thread asked women, "When did you realize your standards needed to be higher?" These stories of bad dates and "aha!" moments will inspire you to dream bigger than "he talks to me sometimes."

1. From MsLuciferM:

When a very wise woman told me that if I wouldn’t be proud of my partner if I had a child just like them then I shouldn’t be married to them.
