Hello everyone, today I'm going to be sharing my personal thoughts on how modern relationships typically go in the modern era.
So I'm sure anyone would be enthusiastic to be in a modern relationship, but I think it's important to stop for a moment and think about what makes relationships nowadays click. Dating has been on a downward spiral in recent years, this can be due to a variety of reasons.. but based off of what I've personally seen in my life, it appears that today's youth are slowly declining when it comes to finding that special someone, so why exactly is that?
Well for starters I think technology plays a major role in this, people are now becoming less socially accustomed to physically dating, it was only a matter of time before dating websites became a popular alternative. I'm sure many people find it much easier and less afraid to date online as opposed to real life, however I firmly believe this comes with its own caveats too. While it may be convenient for an online relationship to continue, and lots of people have found success in doing so, it does not come without its negative downsides, such as your partner not being entirely forthcoming to you, or even being dishonest about their appearance or sexuality altogether. This is just one of the many major flaws I find in today's modern society relationships.
This one piggybacks off the first one but I have to include it to make some points as well, texting a significant other is a huge way of life these days, but I can't help but see so many relationships including some of my own in the past fail, because of a general lack of physical communication because technology was in the way. I think it's quite sad to see, less often you were seeing couples out in public doing something physically with each other such as holding hands or something similar. I personally think physical communication is a vital aspect in maintaining a healthy relationship, generations in the past had no choice but to physically interact because of the lack of modern technology getting in the way.
Typically the average modern relationship is estimated to last between two years and nine months depending on the situation and the circumstances of the relationship in question, even as an estimate this is for lower compared to the previous generations that came before the digital age, long-term commitments do not seem to be as relevant now compared to then. This has been a common problem for a while now, with both genders at fault to varying degrees. Since the modern lifespan of relationships is at an estimated low point I think actual loving commitment plays a major role here.
In order to make relationships work and then modern era is going to require a huge overhaul, society has to be willing to change and make more physical engagements with their partners instead of relying on modern day technology to help them do it themselves. If people can help break out of their own social bubble like, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and simply connect with people on a more personal level, Then I think relationships can make come back in the modern era.
However it's up to those who want to make the change to help make the difference, what's the point of a digital relationship if you don't get any physical value from it? Are we really going to be stuck in the social media bubble for years, or perhaps even decades to come? Like I said it's up to you to make your own choice of what you do in your own life, but without a huge change I believe modern relationships will be doomed for unavoidable failure unless something changes in the hustle and bustle of the modern tech world.
I hope you found this post at least a little bit informative, I'm sure there's stuff that I haven't covered in this particular take that others will let me know in the comments, however these are just some of them that I found interesting, and hope each and every one of you has a great day. ✌️
