If you do not “measure up” to someone’s expectations, you are not good enough to fulfil that person’s expectations or standards. So, for example, when you use a dating app, and connect with someone online, you have an image in your head of that person and what they will be like.

Then, when you finally meet in person, the question is whether or not they will measure up to your expectations of them. It’s easy to make a person seem perfect in our minds, and then the reality can be a bit different! Ha ha!

Have you ever met up with someone you connected with online? Did they measure up to your expectations?
