My definition of dating is a friendship built on compatibility, laughter, and food. But again this is MY definition. Each person has their own based on their experiences and what they look for in an significant other.
These days, I feel it’s a lot harder to find someone. Now you may think I’m crazy because of technology making it so much easier to connect to people but I honestly think it’s harder to find someone genuine. You can find someone through social media sites or through an app but it’s on the basis of appearance and sex.
A lot of people I have talked to refuse to be in relationships these days for a number of reasons. Whether they just don’t trust people or they like to keep their options open…it is what it is. But this has made me question whether, dating is extinct? Has it become just an idea? Or an old way of thinking or developing a relationship?
Personally, I think dating has died. And again I say personally. Dating use to be this private relationship that would only be shared among 2 people. Now it has come to be this social aspect that is shared all throughout the internet. People don’t date in hopes to find the one that they wish to spend the rest of their life with.
Honestly, I miss the whole dating aspect. The first few months everything is so new and you learn so much about each other. You’re constantly laughing and just having fun. Now, I feel like every guy that I come across doesn’t want a relationship. It’s kind of unnerving to realize.
Anyone else feel the same way? And has dating really died?
