Why are relationships so hard today?We’re not prepared for the sacrifices, for the compromises, for the unconditional love. We’re not ready to invest all that it takes to make a relationship work.
We want everything easy.It’s not love we’re looking for, only excitement andthrill in life.
We want someone to watch movies and party with, not someone who understands us even in our deepest silences. We spend time together, we don’t make memories.
We don’t want the boring life. We don’t want a partner for life, just someone who can make us feel alive right now, this very instant. When the excitement fades, we discover nobody ever prepared us for the mundane. We don’t believe in the beauty of predictability because we’re too blinded by the thril adventure.
We immerge ourself in the city life, leaving no space for love. We don’t have time to love, we don’t have the patience to deal with relationships.We’re busy people chasing dreams and there’s noscope to love.
Relationships are nothing more than convenience.We look for instant enjoy in everything we do – the things we post online, the careers we choose, and the people we fall in love with.
We’d rather spend an hour each with a hundred people than spending a day with one. We believe in having ‘options’. We’re ‘social’ people. We believe more in meeting people than getting to know them.
We’re greedy. We want to have everything. We get into relationships at the slightest attraction and step out, the moment when we find someone better.
We don’t want to bring out the best in that one person. We want them to be perfect. We date a lot of people but rarely give any of them a real chance.
We’re disappointed in everyone.Technology has brought us closer, so close that it’s impossible to breathe. Our physical presence has been replaced by texts, voice messages, snapchats and video calls. We don’t feel the needto spend time together anymore. We have too much of each other already.
There’s nothing left to talk about.We’re a generation of ‘wanderers’ who wouldn’t stay at one place for too long. Everyone is commitment phobic. We believe we’re not meant for relationships.
We don’t want to settle down.We cannot imagine being with one person for the rest of our lives. We walk away. We despise permanence like its some social evil.
We like to believe we’re ‘different’ than the rest. We like to believe we don’t conform to social norms.
We’re a generation that calls itself ‘sexually liberated’. We can tell sex apart from love, or so we think. We’re the hook-up-break-up generation. We have sex first and then decide if we want to love someone.
Sex comes easy, loyalty doesn’t.You do it not because you love the other person, but because you want to feel good. It’s all the temporary fulfillment we need.We don’t know how to love madly anymore. We wouldn’t take a flight to a far-off land just to see someone we love. We’d break up because, long distance.
We’re too sensible for love. Too sensible for our own good.We don’t even value relationships anymore. We let go of the most wonderful people for‘’the other fishes in the sea.’’
