In the NBA, if you make 40% of the 3 pointers that you attempt, you’re considered a GREAT 3 point shooter. In baseball if you get at least 3 hits and one walk per 10 at bats consistently, you will be considered a GREAT ball player. If a Quarterback completes over 60% of his passes and has a higher ratio of touchdowns to interceptions, he is considered a GREAT Quarterback. Notice that the standard for greatness was well below 100%, because no one is perfect. So why should we expect our significant other to be perfect in all areas of our relationship. So my question is, what do you have to do to be considered a GREAT boyfriend/husband, girlfriend/wife? And what percentage of the time that you spend with them must you do these things? And remember, NOBODY is PERFECT!
Let’s dig a little deeper. Some men want their wife to cook 100% of the time. What would happen if she only cooked 85% of the time? Would you still love her? Would she still be the best thing that ever happened to you? Some women want you to compliment them every time you see them. What would happen if he said, “Hey baby you are unbelievably beautiful” only 45% of the time? Would she still welcome his compliments after he had an off day? Tiger Woods don’t win every match that he plays, but he is still one of the most recognizable and wealthiest athletes alive. So why should I get yelled at for forgetting to put the toilet seat down every now and then? I remember 50% of the time. And that’s a better percentage than Tiger’s success rate in matches that he competes in. Now I can’t speak for the women, but most guys just want to know what their aiming for. Kobe and Lebron knows that Michael Jordan has 6 championships. And he’s considered the GREATEST basketball player ever. So you best believe that they are both trying to win at least 7 championships.
Just think if I hit 50% of my 3 pointers and made it to first base 50% of the time, I would be considered one of the GREATEST athletes that ever lived. As of the 10th August 2009, Tiger Woods’ percentage of matches that he won was only 28.23%. If I won 30% of the golf matches that I played in, I would be the world’s GREATEST golfer. What if all boyfriends/husbands spent 75% of their free time and 85% of their money on you and with you? Would you be happy? Would he be the world’s greatest boyfriend/husband? Before you answer, what if you only had an orgasm 5% of the time? Would he still be considered GREAT?
