Do the inverse ways men and women approach relationships directly affect their respective expectations for their relationships? Meaning: in men looking for attractors in women they tend to find the things they are attracted to in their potential mate and focus on those things, and the attractors their mate does not already posses, men make accommodations for by accepting the women how she is. The flip side to that coin is that these accommodations often can lend to creeping to find those particular attributes they desire.
Women tend to see the detractors in their mate, and then create and hold on to expectations of what the women feel are the potentials for their man to "evolve" into(or live up to)...This can often lend to misery and nagging etc, as females are thus relegated to their fantasies of their mates "potentials". Thus we have women initiating divorce at a very high rate compared to men, and in most cases this will be due to their perpetual feelings of their respective expectations not being met…

Decades ago young people participated in sit ins, rallies and protest marches to secure the right to vote and use unsegregated public accommodations. Today young people are posting videos of rallies on Facebook, e-mailing organization meeting notices and Tweeting their political candidate choices, able to share ideas with hundreds, even thousands in a matter of moments. Youth have at their fingertips today the most sophisticated communication systems imaginable. How are they using these tools to build a national movement for political empowerment? Members of the Youth Leaders Alliance discuss their intentions to create an urban agenda and organize the political force to make sure elected officials adhere to it
After 6 months of battling with health care providers who either didn’t care, or wanted to report my family to child protective services, I was diagnosed at age 13 with Crohn’s disease. 21 years later, I’m missing a lot of intestine, have gained a bunch of symptoms and side effects, and am in my seventh year facilitating an IBD support group for my region. I’ve been incorrectly diagnosed with ovarian cancer, told I had an hour to live, been a passenger in an ambulance that got lost, fought for reasonable accommodations at work, bought and lost a home, participated in clinical trials for two medications that are currently very popular, and probably used half of the public restrooms in the United States.
I was a Stanford Medicine X ePatient Scholar for 2012 and again in 2014. That same year I was also selected to present a panel I created on invisible illness and pain tracking. The panel is notable for including the first virtual patient panelist at MedX.

Meaning, how much changing and accommodation should one go through in order to get or maintain a relationship?
Often we make adjustments to our standards, actions, and even beliefs in order to be with someone we want. Only to feel shorted when the relationship doesn't last and you've made all those changes for that person.
Of course some accommodations may be necessary when two individuals come together, but is it important for the individual to maintain a balance between their own identity, personal desires and goals, and the mutual goals of the relationship?
Does maintaining this individual perspective and achieving personal fulfillment provide that individual with more to offer to a relationship?
