Relish The Present Moment

“But now, this generation thinks it’s all about sex, but it’s not. It’s about building that relationship with each other.”
Georgetown, DE
Right now, I am blessed to be in a happy relationship.

My last relationship didn’t work out too well because she cheated on me and, what really struck me, was that she lied about it. However, that doesn’t matter as much anymore since I am happy in my current relationship.

Part of dating is being able to let the hard times go and relish in the happiness of the present. Why should I still be sad if I have my current amazing girlfriend?

With regards to the past, I think that relationships have changed significantly in 2018. Back in the day of my grandparents, the guy would ask permission to go on dates, which allowed the fathers to meet the boyfriends.

But now, this generation thinks it’s all about sex, but it’s not. It’s about building that relationship with each other. I’m sad that our generation has changed things so much.

However, I still have faith in dating and in love. My outlook on dating stems from my upbringing.

I was raised as a religious Christian, and I think that my religion impacts my relationship by teaching me to love, rather than be angry. It teaches me to be patient and understanding. I then use those same qualities in my relationship.

The television and movies I watched when I was growing up also influenced me. They showed me how I should act in a relationship as well as what I shouldn’t do. I use these points to behave like a proper gentleman to my girlfriend.

As such, I would advise that singles also believe in blessings and themselves in their search for love. Before my current relationship, yes, I had been rejected many times in my life.

Rather than be disheartened, I told myself that I am handsome, and I will make a girl extremely happy one day. Even if you experience rejection, love is still possible because chance encounters still exist.

For example, people, when they play the lottery, hope to get lucky and believe in their odds. I would suggest that singles also believe in luck. Or, if you’re like me, believe in future blessings that will make your life better.
