Reality has taught me that relationships are complicated even more so today due to social media and the strange norms of my generation. At times, I feel as if I was born in the wrong generation. I live in the era of “Netflix and Chill” that counts as a “date” and some people referring to dating someone as “talking.”
I live in an era where courting seems somewhat extinct. I live in an era of not wanting a title, but still wanting relationship benefits. I personally think the “friends with benefits” concept rarely works out because going with the flow usually leads to one person developing stronger feelings and initiating the, “What are we?” conversation, which then leads to the “I am not ready for a commitment, but I enjoy what we have and still want to chill with you,” answer (a.k.a. a #situationship).
