Sims and the like generally only reflect what kind of damage you theoretically could be putting out on a Patchwerk style dps fight in perfect conditions. Very few fights are like this, and very few ever will be again. That said, it does sound like you need a little work optimizing your rotation. While we are a hard class to squeeze out perfect numbers, we're one of the easier classes for getting decent ones.
A 2h weapon will lower your maximum damage a bit, but with that weapon it should be fairly reasonable to start squeezing out about 60-64k damage (for an 'average' player which is what I consider myself. The best monks around here could probably pull about 85+ in your gear). So look around, read some guides, ask questions, and get in some time on the practice dummy and dungeons/lfr to try to get your priorities into muscle memory. That said, you probably still pull better numbers than 90% of monks I run across, so you're not doing too bad!

Oh that makes me feel better ^_^ it was saddening being told i should be doing 95k while im stuck down at 45-47k
You are well under expertise cap and marginally over hit. As a WW you want both at 7.5%.
You also really need to gem your gear, enchant those last few items and lose the pvp gloves.
Doing those above things will make a significant difference in your numbers.
