Dating a perfectionist can be a challenging experience as they tend to apply the pressure for things to be 100% right to absolutely everything.
However, while there are some downsides to having this personality type, there are also plenty of rewards if you can find the patience and understanding necessary.
Here are some things to know before dating a perfectionist:
1. Flexibility isn’t their strength
Perfectionists like plans and they like to stick to them. It’s very challenging when plans change, so last-minute amendments are hard for them. They don’t tolerate them very well and tend to get stressed out. If you’re super late or decide at the last minute you want to go to another restaurant, they won’t like this. Do your best to keep things on schedule and not vary too much from what was planned. It’ll be better for everyone this way.
