Do you feel like the prevalence of casual and premarital sex has had a negative effect on relationships in today's society? Courtship has virtually deteriorated, leaving men and woman confused about what getting to know who another really means. Do you feel like technology is a mixed blessing when it comes to relationships too? Women tend to get anxious over texts messages and calls that haven't been responded to, if cell phones didn't exist there would be no anxiety.

Thank G-d somebody finally asked this question! I think that the concept of a real, intimate, team-based relationship is becoming an endangered species. For example, I see more guys solely interested in hooking up than ever and if anything long term, I've seen a huge rise in FWB- which I see as a rationalization for long-term, meaningless sex with a particular individual.
I've seen girls cling so much that it suffocates a guy and ruins a relationship. Excessive jealousy does, too. Girls are also using their bodies as manipulation and control. The concept of 'team' is gone and now it's a competition for control. The true definitions of intimacy and romance no longer seem to universally stand and it saddens me. Just before I began to think my standards were too high (wanting, a beautiful, intelligent, ambitious, independent, compassionate, loyal and morally upstanding girl), along came the girl of my dreams. However, I almost compromised because this generation puts too much emphasis on what I believe are not the most important things.
I want to stress, however, that there are many exceptions to the rule in both sexes- you just have to look harder and work harder.4
