Do you feel like you were born in the wrong generation for dating?
I do, I can't help but feel my morals and views on relationships don't meet up to the same standards as this generation. I'm definitely old school, just the simple things. Hand written notes, holding the door open, to something as simple as manners.
This whole hook up culture, dating app scene, talking to multiple people at once, just doesn't make sense to me. What ever happened to meeting people in person? Making the first move, a simple "hello." It seems we're so wrapped up in social media, that we've forgotten how to act sincerely, none of my generation seem to know how to hold a conversation without using their phone, or how to use simple manners without having to be reminded. It all seems fake and ingenuine, there's no wonder most people don't get past the talking stage, because either don't take it seriously, or don't want the same thing.
It seems dating has lost it's true meaning, to find love. Now it's just for those who seek a hook-up, attention or simply an ego boost, without any regards for the other persons feelings.
Just a rant from a girl in her 20s wishing she could find the type of relationships our Grandparents had... (Not to be taken seriously.) 😅

Girlll tell me about it lol. This generation is all about social media, hook ups, and technology.. i know the internet also has it's pros but love has definitely lost its meaning. When i see a couple in love in this generation, im impressed because not many people are like that anymore and they don't want to make the effort to have a genuine connection and face to face relationship. It's sad honestly what it's come to but don't lose hope! Love will find it's way no matter how impossible it may seem. There is someone for you who will match up to your heart and values:) i know it may seem hard with how things have evolved but there's some good people out there still. There will be that one guy who'll have all eyes on you and treat you like a princess. Just have patience and open your heart to him about what you desire! Good luck.
Aww thank you! it's nice to know that some people still hold the same values as me. I thought people might not take me seriously after writing this 😅
It's a shame how dating sites have been taken over by the hook up culture, where it was once innocent and used for the reason it was created for.
