But as sound as this tenet may be, it also underscores what experts see as a major problem in relationships today: We frequently expect a little too much, a little too soon. "People want to rush into a relationship and they want it all to work out right away.They become very concerned if the other person doesn't call them quickly or doesn't want to see them with increasing frequency," says Jo Ann White, a relationship expert and psychology instructor at Temple University in Philadelphia. Many times, she says, one partner simply doesn't want to move that fast.The task force will work to raise public and professional consciousness in regard to adolescent girls with a particular focus on those who impact their lives including parents, educators, health care professionals, and policymakers.
We see ugly people too, but they're not the main actors.
They're the dish washers, the janitors, or the bad guys!
The task force will also identify gaps and inconsistencies in research, education, practice, and public policy.
In this endeavor, the task force is committed to the inclusion of the voices and lives of a range of adolescent girls in terms of age, racial and ethnic diversity, socioeconomic status, geographic area, and sexual orientation.
Having realistic expectations will allow you to accept the flaws each person has.
