Dating in 2023 has evolved into a pursuit as unpredictable and challenging as winning the lottery.
So much is going on.
Technology is one thing, it’s too much – the influence, options available online, the confusing emojis, texting and App’ing – shifting social norms, plus the abundance of choices – finding genuine connections has become akin to hitting the jackpot.
With a swipe here and a message there, we now have access to a vast pool of potential partners.
While this provides unparalleled convenience, it also brings its own set of challenges.
Authenticity and meaningful connections can sometimes get lost in the sea of profiles and emojis.
What you see sometimes is not what you get. Filtered photos and curated profiles has made authenticity a challenge.
The dating field is full of “not so genuine” people. (it’s complicated) 😫
Overcoming inhibitions around intimacy and pursuing casual encounters are challenges many are still grappling with.
There is a growing desire for “just getting laid” – (transcending gender boundaries.) It is no longer something to be ashamed of.
With the fast-paced nature of modern life, taking time to truly connect with another person is now a rarity.
Also, there is no slowing down.
People are ghosting.
In this age of online dating, it’s easy to simply disappear if you’re not interested in someone.
This can be hurtful and confusing for the person on the receiving end, although it helps send a message across.
We’re embracing the current reality and finding satisfaction in it.
Dating doesn’t have to be a complicated process.
Maybe we just do not know what we should be doing either?
There’s still a liveliness to it all; never a dull day. Here for a short time not a long time?
Individuals are transitioning swiftly, especially post-breakup.
