How Love Has Become Complicated in Today's World
The change in styles and views play a role
Dating today has become a more complex and complicated place with different views and ideologies. Not to mention different dating styles as well, since so many are trying to move further away from the traditional way of dating. More people are exploring different ways of dating, and with the change in generations, this also shifts a change in views as well. A lot of that has to do with the level of maturity in some people because there are a lot of adults who have resorted to delayed maturity. That means they haven't really grown up yet. This also explains why many are content with permanent dating and not moving towards a commitment, resulting in people spending years of their lives dating someone where it doesn't really go anywhere. Cohabitation has become the norm in today's dating world, where many want to live together before they take the next step in getting married or deciding not to get married at all. It's harder for women to recognize when a man is not ready to commit or marry them. Men face the same thing with women, but it's more women than men who don't read the signs very closely. Dating would be less complicated if people were more honest and straightforward with their intentions and not playing games—one major annoyance in dating. So many books have been written about dating and relationships, but with the world of internet technology that makes it easier to research information on dating and relationships, there are even more ways to pull up data on different things and checking out the current statistics. You see, so many things happening in dating that may sound good, but there's that old saying that what may work for some may not work for others. Everyone in the world has different tastes, styles, and views when it comes to dating. It's all about finding what works for you and how it shapes your view of dating and relationships. Love is complicated enough without the games and the drama that often comes with dating. If anything, one's dating preferences vary whether you're gay or straight. A lot of younger aged adults who aren't experienced in dating will find that it's very complicated because it takes a great deal of maturity and growing up to learn and figure out the components of dating successfully and establishing stable, long-term relationships with the opposite sex or the same sex. Many adults today have busy lives and careers and children (if they are single parents), and dating has changed with technology launching dating apps that people can easily download to their cell phones. This allows single people to meet people from the comfort and safety of their cell phones. Many dating apps are free or come with a membership fee. While there are countless dating apps with new ones popping up every day, no wonder dating has become a vast pool of meeting people with just your fingertips. Happy Hour isn't at the bars and clubs anymore, it's all on the apps people download to their phones. Chatrooms are a thing of the past now because that was one of the main ways people met when looking to date someone. The dating apps that are currently out there are being designed to be tailored to different ethnic groups and lifestyle choices. In a lot of ways, technology has made dating complicated because it makes people less accessible and, often times, unfriendly. You are communicating with someone through an email instead of actual face-to-face interaction. People have evolved in dating with a change in sexual and lifestyle preferences. 21st century dating is more advanced now with dating apps and sites using tests to find compatible and suitable matches for those who are actively looking to meet someone for dating and/or marriage. Another huge problem with dating is that there is a lack of honesty, so many people are dealing with potential matches who are not honest about themselves. You have people who are married or involved posing like they're single. You also have those who misrepresent themselves by falsifying details about themselves, such as how they look and what their intentions are. Not everyone also uses common sense when dating either because you have some who will be quick to run out and meet someone right away instead of taking the time to get to know them. In meeting someone off the internet or a dating app, you want to meet someone in a public place because you do not know who you are dealing with and what kind of person your date is. There's a lot of cases where people are meeting other people off the internet or a dating app and become victims of sexual assault or some other violent crime. It's ideal to meet someplace that is not a hotel or a private residence. It cuts down on something happening and becoming a victim. In dating, always be upfront and honest about what you are looking for so that person knows if they want to continue dating or not and not waste your time or theirs.
