Dating in The Current Year
Dating can be a daunting task in the current generation, as we connect more and more through online resources, we can lose some of the social skills that were required in the past to help us find the spouse of our dreams. Some people think that different social media sites are a blessing to those who would normally have trouble trying to date in the current year. Others feel that more traditional methods of connecting to other human beings is being badly missed in today’s online world. Is forming relationships online more of a toxic environment that should be avoided altogether? Is more traditional ways of communication a more stable base for a relationship? Or does it solely depend on the opinion of the two individuals involved in the relationship? In the modern age of the Internet and technology at most of our fingertips through smart phone technology, we have access to the information that we need to best assess what is the most healthy way we can form a relationship.
Often if you visit certain sides of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, you will see quite often that younger people will sometimes yearn for simpler, more traditional times when it comes to dating. Young women will often dream about a time when men were more chivalrous, polite, and more thoughtful towards them as they went out on dates. Young women would sometimes yearn for the days when men would open car doors for them while on their date, pay for their dinner, and do other things that may be considered a bit outdated to some in 2018. Young women seem to sometimes miss the more innocent side of going out on dates, such as going to a drive-in movie theater or going on a date to the park.
Other perspectives about dating would go to a more modern approach while on a date, such as the man paying for his dinner and the woman paying for hers. Also, some couples would prefer going to a party or a nightclub for a fun night out as a date, and there really seems to be no data showing that the traditional habits of dating make people any happier than the modern approach to dating. It all just seems to boil down to personal preference.
One consequence of dating during the digital age, is that it is very easy for your potential spouse to dig up the skeletons in your closet if you have any. Simultaneously, in the current year it is easier than ever to connect with a potential partner online using Social media sites such as Twitter, and by using online dating sites such as Match.com.
In conclusion, it seems that at the end of the day, the only way to figure out what style of dating works best for you, is to try different things out and see what you like best.
