Our generation has this terminology or lingo to describe our relationships. We use the words, “thing,” and “hook up” nonchalantly. But why?
Well, because we are too scared to tell it how it is. We don’t want to come on too strong or be intimidating. We have to hold our tongues because, if things get too serious in a relationship, we are scary. We can’t show public displays of affection because that’s dangerous. The world knowing you have feelings is basically fatal. But why?
Relationships are too demanding for people these days. It’s too much work to like someone so much and strictly be with them. It’s easier to have a hit and run. A warning: don’t forget about the three-day rule or the three-times rule — a rule used by douchebag guys who think that waiting three days after a date to call means that the girl will want them more when, really, it just pisses them off. Or if you “hook up” three times, things become too serious and you have to basically ignore the other person to make it known that it was only casual. But for some reason, threesomes are a thing. But why?
People do this as players of the game. We flirt with people to seem appealing, but don’t actually pursue a relationship with them. And if we do pursue it, it will not be publicly known. And if you don’t know how to play the game, you are left in the dust by the people whom you thought you could have been something with. As they say, “Play by the rules so you don’t get hurt.” But why?
People don’t tell each other how much they like each other. Rather, it’s a simple Snapchat saying “miss you,” or a like on Instagram. We “hang out,” and don’t go on dates. It’s a booty call, not a genuine time to hang out. We leave as soon as we wake up in the morning and never stay for breakfast. And if we ever do go on dates, genuinely spend time together or get breakfast, the relationship becomes a burden or embarrassing. Relationships used to have quality and quantity time. But now we have neither. But why?
We will never be the one to text first. And we will never be the one to ask questions. So, we kind of go-with-the-flow, but the flow’s current is nothing you can talk about or change. Because you don’t want to be too powerful, in control, or whipped. But WHY?
This is a break up with what wasn’t really even there. But more of a farewell to how relationships used to be.
