Keri Hilson Said This After Someone Asked If Her Relationship Standards Were “Too High”
Singer and songwriter Keri Hilson just gave the most epic response to a fan who inquired if she had unattainable standards when it came to romance.
Hilson, who has enjoyed singledom since her break-up with NFL player Ricardo Lockette, has repeatedly used her social media account to dispel ideas that single women must be unhappy and unfulfilled.
While celebrating the recent nuptials of her friends Joi and Tim, Hilson took time to reflect on her own thoughts about marriage and relationships.
“Sure I’d like to be married someday—but not enough to do it with the wrong person. So if you EVA see “Keri” walk down that aisle, even if I’m old & grey…you can rest assured—I didn’t settle,” she wrote on Instagram.
But in her comments section, someone needed more answers about her relationship status (or lack thereof) and Hilson, not only delivered but set everyone straight.
“Do you think your expectations are too high?” Instagram user @bellemoonville asked.
“To have a man compliment my life, who is equally yoked in the things that MATTER like loyalty, virtue, depth, compassion, and love & respect for God, someone who understands healthy relational boundaries & pushed me to be my best self while supporting each other’s dreams?” Hilson begins in her lengthy response.
Hilson hit the notion on the head that people more often than not, settle for companionship for fear of finding their true best halves. Hilson said she’s looking for the full package, a man who is striving to find emotional, spiritual and romantic balance.
“Someone who truly loves himself & has dissolved his own ego? Someone who has evolved from his lower self & constantly evolving? Someone who has learned his lessons & strives to be a great human being? Someone who holds my heart carefully & treats me well? Who values & honors love? Someone who is wide enough to lead me? Nah. And I don’t think God puts anything our hearts that we are not capable of having,” she concluded.
The “Pretty Girl Rock” singer has been on an emotional journey to find self-worth and has openly discussed her battle with depression and low self-esteem. It seems she has really delved into finding peace and balance in herself and not in a romantic partner.
