Our Generation’s Dating

“If someone doesn’t want to get to know me, there’s no need to waste my time. It’s their fault, not mine.”
Baltimore, MD
In my previous relationship, he got too clingy for me. Since I was not as interested, I broke it off. There’s no reason to lead someone on if you are not that interested.

Right now, I like being single. Even though I have not met Mr. Right, I do not mind being single. It leaves time for me to be with my friends and family, without extra obligations or someone attempting to control my life.

I have been rejected in the past, but I try not to let it bother me. If someone does not want to get to know me, there is no need to waste my time. It is their fault, not mine.

Why should I stay invested in someone who cannot even see my value? My self-respect does not let someone else dictate or destroy me.

I would recommend the same thing to anyone else who has been rejected before. If that person does not understand the unique qualities in you, there is no reason to let your heart break.

Honestly, I think chance encounters are becoming extinct. This is partly due to mobile dating apps. People would rather chat on their phones with each other instead of meeting face-to-face to really get to know someone.

Yes, someone could put a pretty picture online and sound nice in a chatroom, but I cannot really get to know someone on my phone. If you are comfortable with the dating app culture, feel free to use it. Just not with me.

That is why I partly believe that dating apps have changed our generation’s dating, compared to past ones. Before, men would ask their love interests on a date and the relationship could blossom from there, or fizzle out.

Now, my generation is too used to dating apps and texting. I think the dating app culture has led to more hook-ups, instead of actual relationships. Dating in 2018 is definitely harder than it was in previous generations.

Guys from the past were more gentle and open. Now, guys would rather be texting and using emojis to express their emotion.

I don’t want to have to decipher something a guy says. Just be honest with me and we’ll see where it goes.
