Dating is the first step towards finding a potential partner for a long-lasting relationship. But with everything changing around, the process of dating has evolved itself. Dating is no more what it used to be earlier- fun, simple, and easy!! Earlier, people used to find a dating partner based on the terms of compatibility and let a relationship grow on the foundation of trust and reliability. As simple as that!! Sadly, the modern generation doesn’t have it easy. For many of them, dating is just a source of getting intimate physically and others have trust issues that they are way too scared to actually have a full-fledged relationship with a human being.

There are many reasons to why dating has become quite a big challenge for the modern generation and we are here to discuss a few of them.

Blame It on Dating Apps

The arrival of dating apps has completely changed the way to approach someone. The real conversations are replaced by texts and expression of emotions is just limited to emojis now. And for most of the people out there, dating apps are just a tool to kill time by swiping right and left judging someone completely on the basis of their physical appearance. You can totally imagine the devastating situation of a relationship based entirely on the fantasy of the internet.

Inclination towards Physical Intimacy

In the modern dating world, physical intimacy has taken over the importance of emotional bonding in a relationship.

Of course, sexual interaction is necessary for the healthy growth of a relationship, but it shouldn’t be the very base of it because then the whole relationship is bound to fall at some point.
