When did dating go from a competition of who can make the most romantic gesture illustrating their love to who can act like they care the least?

I just don't get it. People make it seem like being head over heels for your partner means they have all the power in a relationship and that you're the lesser of the two by being really into them. Everyone just acts like they only mildly like their partner. It just seems mentally abusive and immature yet everyone and their mother is doing it now and it's really sad... :(

    • But this happens in marriages as well.
