HAS DATING CHANGED OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS?

Hey Ladies & Gentlemen! Its Relationship Wednesday or at least today it is….so let’s have a discussion. Do people still go out on dates? It’s clear that Dating is a way to collect DATA on one another but is that something that is still done? I posed this question on Facebook today and received so many different answers which had me thinking. Do people even meet and ask to go out on a date or do we live in a world where dating doesn’t exist but sex is now the new form of collecting data on an individual but on an unstable emotional level. I was able grasp opinions from both females and males. In today’s post I am going to share a few discussions.

Here’s the #RelationshipWednesday question that I asked on Facebook Today:

Ladies and Gentlemen!!!
How has dating changed over the last ten years 2009-2019? Let’s talk about it!

 

A few responses from the women:

  •  Some men want one or multiple Girlfriends and aren’t interested in marriage. 
  • Both females and males lack of commitment.
  • More established men are afraid to ask women out because they are intimidated.
  • There is a lack of committing to a long-term relationship from both male and female.
  • The new norm is now utilizing Internet dating sites.
  • Dating is a thing of the past.
  • Dating over 45 is difficult due to the dynamics changing 
  • Both men and women are often in different places in their lives.
  • There are those who date with the intention of getting married while some have absolutely no intention. 
  • Is there now an age restriction on dating?

A few responses from the men:

  • No one dates anymore.
  • Men who have themselves together are developing higher/different levels of expectations and place more emphasis on the real building blocks that create the foundation of a relationship.
  • Women have always expected more, however they may have not always received what they’ve expected from a man or a relationship.
  • Men are realizing sex, an occasional meal and child rearing are ok but aren’t an adequate trade off in a relationship

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON HOW DATING HAS CHANGED?
