Extremely high, which is why I'm happy being alone until I meet the right person.

Never mind.

Tacky comment was not necessary nor as funny as I first thought.

For the most part, they're all free to be as high as they wish, especially when they're in a bad mood..I prefer them high when they're crabby.

My thoughts exactly. :D

 

However, I suppose it's meant in regards of "Lifestyles and relationships". Here, I have pretty high standards, and I expect my partner(s) to live up to them.

I met some guy who had strange standards, like "i hate mesh avis, classic are the best, but need mesh hends and feet".People with too high standards in SL should get a life in rl, but they kinda expect that their friends will look-talk-behave like they want

I long long LONG time ago, my roommate and I were visiting a friend of ours and he asked if we had ever had real Purple Haze.  Why no, we had never had anything but plain old blotter.  Well, somehow or another I never heard him say "most people only take half."   About 45 minute later I'm thinking we either go home now or we ain't making it home.  It's just a 10 minute drive outside of town.  Once I got out to the car I knew is was already too late.

We were in my old bucket of bolts that did not have a working speedometer.  Out on the country road by myself with no other cars around.  Explosions of rainbows starting to cover the windshield.  Space and time were just esoteric concepts so I had no way of knowing how fast I was driving.  Maybe 20 mph?  Maybe 120 mph?  Eventually I got out to our apartments.  I had to cross a 4 lane divided highway and I would make it.

That's when the sign across the street went into multiple image mode like standing between mirrors.  It filled my whole vision.  Before crossing the highway I looked to the left, away from town.  It opened up into a giant void without gravity.  Fortunately I was not headed that way.  I looked right.  Blobs of light in all colors, sizes, shapes were moving in all directions and speeds in a chaotic orgy of motion on a pitch black canvas .  I had to look forward and hope for the best.  There was no way I was going to see a car in either direction.  I made it across on shear luck.  I had never been that high in my life.  I have never been that high since. I was so high I had lost touch with any part of reality.

That's how high my standards are.

Not my standard, but one of my friends just talks to me, when im able to pay 100% attention to our conversation and when my response time does not exceed 5-10 seconds.
Do i need to mention, we are not having a lot of conversations!?

Well, I don't care if my subs or partner wear mesh or just a system avatar. That's just superficial. Although I think even with a system avatar, one can at least try to look better than the starter avatars.

However, I do have a few standards I expect my subs and partner(s) to live by:

  1. Real Life™ has absolute top priority to me, no matter what happens in-world. I expect everyone around me to accept that, and to live by that rule themselves.
  2. I dislike short message style abbreviations, so I expect my subs to communicate as good as they can. Mistakes can happen, and typos too - but I expect them to at least try to learn from their mistakes, just as I do my best to learn from my mistakes as well. And I expect them to be respectful at all times, no matter where they are.
  3. For my subs, I expect them to communicate the Likes/Dislikes/Limits they're aware of as concise as they can, because I'm not a psychic yet, and I don't want to hurt/abuse them emotionally. They're real humans with real feelings behind these avatars, after all .
  4. I'm not there to beat their boredom. If they're bored, they better do something in Real Life™ that entertains them without the need to be interactive.
  5. And lastly, I don't want them to be "door-mats" who accept everything without a thought. I expect my subs to use their brains; to offer feedback,  dialog, emoting.

Mine are impossible high, and that's the way I like it. At least for a partner. 
For friends they're much lower - I'm a rather laid back person in regards to that. It's easy to be my friend, a bit harder to be my good friend, and you basicially need to be a god to be my partner.

Standards when it comes to mesh v system -  Pah.  My partner of 9 years still has his original avi and skin.  I don't give a flying fig about that if he is happy.  I love him not his pixels. If he wants to change then I will be there to help.  Same goes for my friends and probably anyone I come across.  It's  your avi, I might admire an unusual or particularly well put together one but it has no bearing on my relationship with you.

Recently since I learnt how to use AVsitter properly, I have developed very high standards regarding furniture menu set ups.  I will honestly spend days and days making sure ours makes sense and works smoothly.  I notice other furniture and have driven myself nuts thinking how I could have made the menu better. Why have you just lumped in a load of animations that don't actually fit and left them with boring names like Sit 1.  I devour a thesaurus coming up with appropriate and more interesting animation names to the point where I am now slowly updating all our old stuff.  

Also text speak.  Don't even get me started on that.  If you replace you with U, our relationship is doomed unless its a customer service issue then I just bristle and continue to help.

I guess they are high, because every person applying for the position of a partner would have to compete with my personal comfortzone, that I have cultivated over the years.

I've been on SL for 8 years and never had a relationship that lasted for more than two meetings.

Perhaps my standards are too high and I need to drop it a notch. Then again, I'm not looking for a relationship in SL as I enjoy the freedom, zero responsibility and easy come, easy go of my second life. Assuming we're talking about SL relationships, that is. 

As my old biology teacher once told me;  Fussy means less. Or none, in my case.

Some people are way too needy and I've never liked clingy.

I have very high standards but am also comfortable alone so I am fine with having those standards. Some things I am very rigid with, I identify on the asexual spectrum so I need anyone even considering me as a partner to know that, understand that, and accept it. I find that a lot of relationships in SL are sex driven, not all of them, but a lot of them are, so for me to have the avi that I do and show the skin that I do, people think that I must not be on that Ace spectrum and instead are playing hard to get. The thing is, my sexuality and lack of interest in pixel sex, is not a moral thing, if people want to enjoy their sexuality in any manner of ways I am fully supportive, if I want to walk about showing more than 75% of my skin, I will, because I like what I like, that doesn't mean I want some rando kissing on me in a club when I am just trying to enjoy music and am kind enough to carry on a conversation.

So I find it difficult to find a partner in SL that understands and accepts me for who I am, but that is okay because there is always shopping and the narcissistic self portraits of myself to occupy my time.
