The New Era Way of Love

We live in a generation of not being in love, and not being together. But then we make it feel like we’re together, because we’re scared to see each other with somebody else.

Instead of strong relationships, we struggle through long series of bad dates and hookups. Instead of meeting people in real life, we’re constantly surfing social media and messaging somebody new. Instead of telling people how we feel, we just don’t text back. We no longer date or commit, we “see” and “hang out” with each other. We are involved in a dating culture that prevents intimacy.  we’ve become a generation afraid of being in love.

When we were young our minds were filled with the concept of true love. It was everywhere; in our movies, in our music, even our celebrities. We had the perception that everybody has a soul mate
But eventually committed relationships started to die out. Then technology came in, it gave us the ability to connect from anywhere at anytime and now we can barely talk to people face to face. It started to control our happiness and our moods.

We’re in a place where talking about your emotions renders you weak. If you show your emotions you are not a hard guy or girl.

If you commit to one person, it is not the “ish”. Our generation is such a twist that in order to fit in, you would have to hide a lot of things and show a lot of things you’re not. But we seem to forget that it’s not everywhere we fit in, that we belong.

So if you want someone, just go for it only if it’s worth it. And don’t send wrong wrong signals.
