If you're a guy and have been part of the singles scene for a while, you've probably thought about what the best way to converse with women is for maximum success. Unfortunately finding the right formula is a difficult task indeed.
“Millennial” is a buzzword that the media just loves to hop on. It seems that every newssource strives to shed light on something as peculiar and revolutionary as the foreign concept of a “new generation.” Through my perspective as a millennial, I’d love to give everyone insight into our mating patterns:
Let me start off by saying that I do not believe that guys and girls can’t be friends. Some of my best friends are guys, and they can be great when it comes to navigating life and dating. That being said, we all know about that other kind of “best friend” who seems to always be lurking in the background waiting to steal your man away. This story is going to be about that girl. Do not think for one second, we don’t see you for what you are, and we know what you’re all about.
We all know what "ghosting" is in today's world. This phenomenon, put simply, is when one person in some type of relationship decides to cut off all contact with another, without even granting an explanation or reason. They just decide that, for whatever reason, they aren't ready for a relationship, or, in some cases, just don't want to be with that particular person. I've began to assume that insecurity, lack of emotional maturity, and minimal communication skills are core reasons why people ghost. To put it cruelly, these people just do not want to speak to you anymore. They do not give a reason and a lot of times there are no signs of potential ghosting until they just disappear. It sounds just as cruel and disrespectful as it is. And because of the innate carelessness and emotional cruelty these ghosters cause their ghostees, I will never defend, condone, or accept ghosting as a healthy or fair way to end a "talking stage" or a relationship.
New Orleans, Louisiana home of jambalaya, corrupt government, and my home for the past four-ish years. This weekend rainbow flags are flying, and straight girls are screaming "Love Wins!" That is right friends, it is pride—something that has morphed into catalog spreads for J-Crew and H&M.
