Sometimes dating is like stepping into a world of delusion. There are so many people out there with outsized expectations of what their "soul mate" should be. Of course, I'm not saying you should settle for just anything. I've seen too much of that too. But people are people -- they're not superheroes, cartoons, or characters from movies or fiction. Still, that doesn't stop some people for looking for perfection -- which, frankly, they will never find. Brandi Glanville seems to be hitting up against this nonsense, as she recently tweeted:

Here are six signs your expectations are too high.

1. You keep getting rejected. Unless you have a seriously antisocial personality or your pits reek, chances are that you should at least occasionally get pursued by a member of the opposite sex or have people willing to go on at least a first date with you. If it seems like you're getting turned down a lot, you're probably shooting outside your league. In plain English, if you're a 6, you're not going to get a 10. Stop trying. The problem is that most 6s think they're 10s.

2. Your list of dealbreakers is all superficial. Most people have dealbreakers and a list of qualities they want a partner to have. But if yours is more about "has to be over six feet tall," "has to have good abs," "has to have blue eyes," than "has to be a good person," "has to have never cheated," "has to care about people other than himself," you're focusing on the wrong things.

3. Short-term relationship history. If you're in your 30s or 40s and have never had a relationship last more than a couple of years, your expectations are definitely too high.

Finding a true friend is truly a rare thing. That's not to say that true friendship won't be difficult or have rough patches, of course! After all, we all make mistakes, have hard times, and sometimes we do stupid, thoughtless things. But if those things dominate your friendship and leave you feeling exhausted, emotionally depleted, and depressed, instead of happy, refreshed, and validated, it's a good bet that it's time to move on up. In honor of Friendship Day, here are 7 toxic friends you should kick to the curb.

Debbie Downer 
Some people have really hard lives. It's true. And often they need a lot of support and help. But when every single cloud in the sky becomes a reason to complain about rainstorms that haven't even happened, it can be too much for any friend to deal with. All that negativity can be soul-sucking, and we kind of need our souls to be in top-notch condition. So if you notice that you're hanging around someone who can't seem to shine a ray of light on anything, ever, it might be time to hand them some rose-colored glasses and move on.

The Competitor 
Good friends inspire you to be better. Good friends teach you ways to be better. Good friends are happy for you when you do better. They appreciate your success and cheer you on as you try to become your best self. They don't feel threatened when good things come your way. And if you've inspired them to make a positive change in their life, they let you know what a good influence you've been on them. But if your "friend" has to one-up you every time you share some good news, or she sees your every accomplishment as a challenge, she may actually be a frenemy in disguise.

Backstabber 
This friend is extremely nice - at least to your face. She's probably really fun to be around, and seems to have a good time with you, too. In fact, you really enjoy spending time with her. So it is especially confusing and hurtful when you hear - from others - that she thinks you're kind of a slob and that your kids are personality-less blobs. Give her a chance to explain herself, but don't be too shy about giving yourself plenty of distance from her in the future.

You're fully aware that meddling in-laws, money troubles and even your (usually) sweet children can wreak havoc on your relationship. But the things that can really drive a wedge between you and your husband might be much more subtle. Before blaming the classic culprits, learn how to recognize these unexpected instigators of marriage distress and minimize their potential effects. Photo by Getty Images 

1. Digital Communication 
Sending texts, emails and Facebook messages can be faster than sitting down for a face-to-face conversation. But an Oxford University study found that couples who talk more through digital channels are likely to be less satisfied with their relationships. It could be because technology strips away the emotion that comes with communicating in person. "The further you get from expressing yourself fully, the more room there is for couples to miss each other," says Jenev Caddell, PsyD, founder of My Best Relationship Psychological Services, PLLC. Be sure to balance the occasional "thinking of you" text with face time, especially for pressing concerns. 

2. On-Screen Romances 
Can't get enough of fictional couples in movies and TV shows? That actually may distance you from your spouse. Research has shown that marrieds who believe strongly in TV depictions of romance are less committed to their current relationships. Despite rocky times for sitcom and romcom twosomes, viewers come to expect roses and adventures as everyday treats from their spouses, which just doesn't happen. "They remove themselves from their own reality," Dr. Caddell says. Using storylines as inspiration to try something new together can be wonderful, as long as you remember real relationships don't operate exactly as scripted ones do. 

3. Poor Sleep 
Getting enough rest is a health must-and maybe a marriage must, too. A UC Berkeley study revealed that couples engage in more intense spats after a bad night's sleep. "If you're sleep-deprived, you have poor concentration and can't think clearly," says Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD, psychologist and expert for WebMD's Relationships and Coping Community. So it's no wonder difficult discussions can turn ugly. If things get heated with your partner, own up to feeling more tired than usual. Then, readdress the issue after you've had some decent shut-eye.
