Dating etiquette today is quite different from
Thankfully we have nothing else in our lives to stress out about – said no Millennial ever.As not knowing whether or not you’re in a relationship can drag on for months, uncertainty of whether or not you should be dating creeps up.Although, this isn’t to say that we couldn’t ease up in areas where we should ease up.Here are 8 problems that previous generations didn’t have with dating that we managed to create for ourselves. One-night stands were nowhere near as common as they are now. Sure, we may sleep with the same person for a few months before we switch, and call it dating, but the truth is that we date to have sex.That isn’t to say that they never happened – but not nearly as regularly as they do amongst our generation. Much of the time we skip the whole dating thing and go straight for the goal. Sure, you’re not just having sex, you’re hanging out as well. You’re clearly not just a booty-call, but are you together? Apparently there is now a difference – exclusivity isn’t always promised. Well, I do know why, but it’s so incredibly silly that I find it revolting that it has even invaded my own life.If nothing else, we are a pretty efficient generation. Because most of our relationships start with sex before they turn into something substantial, it can be rather difficult figuring out where exactly that line between the two is located. With all these different levels of togetherness that we’ve invented, it’s no surprise that many times we’ll find ourselves with a person and not know how to introduce him or her to friends or family. You’d think that the FB status would make things easier, but until you know for sure, then FB won’t know -- and that can make for awkward conversations.This was a little strange to me because I wasn’t sure what to do if I was really into someone.
I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.
We’ve united as a generation and made our dating lives difficult.
Everything was a bit more straightforward – predictable, maybe. Generation-Y doesn’t have it easy when it comes to dating and relationships.
Something fellow GP writer, Grace Buchele Mineta mentioned in her podcast interview.
In Japan, women can confess their love so it’s not strange if we ask a man out but in America, it seems that women tend to wait for men to ask them out.
