Generation x romance dating
We mostly communicate over devices instead of in person. You would go to dinner and see a movie, maybe just go for a walk. We’re always looking for that next great experience to update our status with.
So much gets lost in a text message – even with emojis. At the end of the night, you would kiss the girl on the cheek and go your separate ways. Nowadays there are little to no guidelines on going out on a date. Life was simpler before – there was less to do, less to balance.
Worse, we like to choose as much as possible because we want more – it’s human nature. Generation-Y especially is filled with big dreamers.
We all want to leave a legend behind, to be remembered.
As not knowing whether or not you’re in a relationship can drag on for months, uncertainty of whether or not you should be dating creeps up.
If you’re not in a relationship then you are free to date and probably should be dating.
Even worse, what if he or she is dating other people and you’re being a faithful schmuck.
If nothing else, we are a pretty efficient generation. Because most of our relationships start with sex before they turn into something substantial, it can be rather difficult figuring out where exactly that line between the two is located. With all these different levels of togetherness that we’ve invented, it’s no surprise that many times we’ll find ourselves with a person and not know how to introduce him or her to friends or family. You’d think that the FB status would make things easier, but until you know for sure, then FB won’t know — and that can make for awkward conversations.
To make things worse, being the first to update your FB status is like being the first to say “I love you.” It’s a step down, but it’s comparable.
Everything was a bit more straightforward – predictable, maybe. Generation-Y doesn’t have it easy when it comes to dating and relationships.
Although, this isn’t to say that we couldn’t ease up in areas where we should ease up.
