Modern Dating

Browsing

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.

Relationship Is Not Priority Anymore

With so much on their plate already, dating has taken a back seat in the life of Gen Y. The pressure of a stable career and the burden of 9 to 5 jobs that extends till the wee hours has made it quite hard for them to develop and sustain a healthy relationship with someone for a long time. Amidst all the responsibilities, they cannot manage to devote enough time and attention to a relationship.

People Are Afraid Of Commitment

As horrible as it can get, commitment is the prominent thing that the modern generation fears the most. In this monogamous world, staying in the relationship with a person for a long time just doesn’t seem ideal to youngsters. Just when the fun part gets over and the serious phase creeps in, all they desire is to get out of the relationship.

Inclination towards Physical Intimacy

In the modern dating world, physical intimacy has taken over the importance of emotional bonding in a relationship. Always in the search for something new and thrilling, once people start to feel that their partner has nothing exciting to offer them, they kind of get bored of the 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.

Phoebe Cary has rightly said, “Never is true love blind, but rather brings an added light.”

This wonderful quote explains the beauty of love and gives strength to the fact that love can happen anywhere with anyone and in any instance. This is one of the reasons why people are not shying away from exploring the concept of a blind date. It is one of the increasing trends that are followed by the younger generations who are not afraid to experiment even in the territory of love. If you are still in a dilemma whether to go for a blind date or not, here are the few factors that can encourage you to try it for once.

The mystery is the key element

 There are lots of people who are simply enthralled with surprises or mysteries and this is where bling dating becomes interesting. When you don’t have the slightest idea about a person with whom you are going to meet, it automatically adds a unique layer of excitement and euphoria in the whole process of dating.

No strict rules & algorithms to follow

 When you know a person for a long time personally and has agreed to go on a date, it becomes a lot of hard work to impress your partner according to his/her choice and preference. However, there is no such baggage in a blind dating and you can wear anything and can behave the way you want.

The charm of old school tricks

If you have always been fascinated by the old school tricks and charm, bling dating is simply for you. Isn’t it interesting to meet someone unfamiliar who has been arranged by your best friend, colleague or family member keeping in mind your preferences for a guy or gal? It is a special kind of feeling which can give you goosebumps as well as make you elated in anticipation of your “perfect soul mate”.

As two individuals are meeting each other for the first time in a blind dating, so there is virtually a lot of stuff to talk about. Both the individuals can talk and ask about each other hobbies, profession, life goals, favourite movies and other such things in order to explore each other in a better way. Moreover, there would not be any instances of long pauses when you know each other for a long time before.

A gateway to future love stories

 As we all know life is unpredictable, so who knows where a blind dating can take two unknown individuals in their future life. May be they could start dating each other seriously or can even tie up nuptials for a life long journey. It could be that your blind dating can be a perfect future love story in the making.
