Fuck these types social standards. That type of behavior is a bad standard to have, it's controlling and abusive and makes people feel guilty or even having the slightest thought that another human maybe physically attractive.
It is fucking unhealthy, and so many people excuse it because it's standard
. That is the root of jealousy and abuse, if your partner doesn't like the fact that you are going to recognize that other humans other then them are physically attractive but that your feelings for them as a person go beyond physical attraction
is not enough for them, to the point were the shame you for the slightest fleeting thought or glance or worse straight up hit you for it.
Then they don't deserve to be your partner, or likely anyone's partner til they grow the fuck up.
That is not a social standard, that is culture of jealousy and abuse.
