Therefore, the chance of becoming single increases significantly with every new expectation. It takes a strong person and a lot of focus to not to be so demanding or needy in a relationship. Expectations increase so gradually over time that it’s hard to see the change unless you compare the beginning to the end.

Smaller arguments turn into bigger arguments, more expectations get dropped, and at least one person stops caring.
It builds, and eventually you have no choice but to end the relationship in order to save lives and your sanity.
You’ll have a far happier life if you give gifts, whether it be material gifts, or acts of kindness, with no expectation of the gift being reciprocated.

The expectations are so high and so many that there isn’t a single person alive that could maintain them or keep you happy for very long, but that doesn’t stop you from making demands.
