You won’t meet your future spouse on a date

You won’t meet your future spouse on a date

The more important question to ask here would be, did dating ever start at all? The problem with it is that dating is a foreign concept. Something we saw on TV and movies then decided that it seemed like a good idea. There’s really nothing wrong with spending time together but dating puts a lot of pressure on two people to put on a show, so to speak.

Think about it, when’s the last you or somebody you know went on an actual date? These days people just meet and carry on together without much discussion of going out and doing other things of the sort together. Another thing that really stops people from going out it the ease with which things are done in modern times. Technology has made everything too easy. You can get an innumerable amount of TV shows, radio stations (podcasts apparently they are all the rage) and movies at the comfort of your own home. Need to order something to eat? There’s no point in going outside and buying it yourself, there’s an app for that now.

Research has shown that millennials are not only moving less than people from previous generations but they are also going out less and socializing a lot less. As the New York Post reports, “Millennials, it seems, have discovered that the need to socialize face-to-face is waning, as food, shopping, friends, entertainment and even sex are all an app tap away.”

Remember those ‘Netflix and chill’ memes? Well they are very accurate. It’s a lot less expensive than going out with someone without much guarantee of anything meaningful happening between the two of you. Not when you can just pull up a dating/hook up app and remove all the variables that arise from a night out.

What is this new phenomenon now? It’s not really a phenomenon but a natural progression. People no longer need to tire themselves out looking for that one connection that will last. It’s more about finding whomever you are most comfortable with and seeing how that works out. You don’t need to go on a ‘traditional’ date for this despite what all those movies told you.

People hang out, people hook up without much commitment and more importantly romance is all the way dead. A much modern approach that seems to be cropping up is starting out actual families without being ‘together’ and not out of obligation but choice. Since this still rather new it’ll be interesting to see how that dynamic shifts into what a family is in the future, but one thing is for sure, you won’t start one on a date.
