Just not the same.

What happened to dating? Finding love? Finding something real? So many people ghost. Lie. Cheat. Break families. What happened? Seriously. It's sad that this seems like the new norm when it shouldn't be. Even when being honest in what we are looking for, the moment you lack something someone wants, they don't want you. Perfection is impossible. We are all unique and so many want it all in one package. I feel like people forgot how to want someone for their inner self, and not for the outside only. Why do people hunt for trophies when the best thing, the purest thing for you, isn't something that's shiny and perfect to place on a shelf...sorry for rambling. I just find it sad that since my single yet again days have started, younger generations kinda seem like they have their heads on straighter than my own gen. At least from my recent observations.

Eh, I think it's a person by person case. You just see a lot of ugly behavior because it's much easier to see when it's all collected in one place. There's plenty of lovely people too!

Danes point is spot on. And to add my own note, if you always expect the worst in people then you're likely to push away potential lovers and friends. In my own experience, as an introvert I tend to build reasons in my head to avoid people. I'm not always right, I'm just viewing life through my own lense. When mistakes in my judgement come up, the room for improvement is internal, not external. It really pays to step back and self-evaluate before making rash claims. I have both regrets in my life for making those rash claims, and serenity from other times when I reserve my dismissive behavior, then low and behold, their true beauty shines through, something I never would have noticed otherwise.

I think it has to do with broadcasting more bad news than good. You're more likely to hear about dating gone wrong than any success stories. Chances are when people find the right person for them they are less likely to write a comment about it.

Nobody wants to put in effort anymore. They want everything perfect right off the bat

Our generation was taught to want it all and want it now. Most never broke out of that mentality...

I don't know that it was ever that much better, I do think the problems evolved. When you find the right kind of person the first sign is that things flow differently. Things you struggled with become easier. It can take awhile and while you're looking get comfortable with yourself to the point where you don't need anybody. Something about that brings people out of the woodwork. I just know sometimes when you stop looking it finds you. I know it's always the same sort of advice be patient and all that, but I think all the jackasses come though our life so that we don't take the real thing for granted when we find it. Good luck to you Ma'am.
