Modern love is one of those mysteries that everybody is still trying to unravel; how we proceed into the next generation of dating and how relationships work is evolving, people are prioritizing their love lives in different ways and are working on themselves more in order to find somebody they connect with better, people are having kids and starting families later and the vibe and overall atmosphere that we’ve set on romance feels less pressured.
It’s probably because there isn’t a massive emphasis on TV or in movies anymore that weighs down how very important it is that we find the love of our lives in our teens or twenties and how very important it is that we start a family before we turn thirty, we’ve started to treat dating with an easier approach – it’s less pressure and more fun even if there are cons to the modern dating world.
But having been in a relationship for what will be 2 years in a few weeks time I also have to step back and admire relationships instead of just dating. Don’t get me wrong, dating is fun and getting that warm fuzzy feeling and excitement because somebody has a crush on you never gets old, but neither does waking up next to the person you’re actually in love with every day, sharing meal times and talking about your days, having inside jokes and feeling comfortable enough to let off the grossest farts.
Sometimes with relationships you find that you begin to adapt to each other, especially when you commit as much as moving in together. You have to get used to each others schedules, ways of living and emotional patterns. Is there anybody on the planet that you have a stronger connection to at this point? There are things about you that only this person gets to see and notice and there are things about them that only you get to see and notice, you do nice gestures because you know it’ll make them happy and you get to feel complete satisfaction when you achieve that goal. I write about dating a lot because I do think modern dating is fun, but also relationships are equally as fun and frankly: more special.
When you date though, you get the advantage that your friends who are in a relationship don’t; it’s not freedom or doing things in your own time, it’s the fact that you’re adapting to new ways of life, as I’ve said so many times, online dating fascinates me and I think it’s purpose is well and truly served, those of you that are too busy to find love now have the chance, loneliness is easier to remove and when you get specific with your dating websites, for example location based dating sites such as a Shropshire Dating Site you’re the friend that has all of the stories to tell and you’re the friend that is experiencing the newest wave of finding love; to me that’s got it’s perks within itself too.
I don’t necessarily miss my single days, I often wonder what I did and how I spent my days because not having the company all the time seems so foreign to me now, I also like to think of myself as a relationship person, I enjoyed dating but I only get serious when I can connect with somebody and when I feel like we’re on the same wavelength, and I feel like I have that now which is why I want to muse over relationships and acknowledge their awesomeness too.
