Dating back in the days
When people go in with the mindset that they are looking for someone that will add to their life instead of someone that will complete their life, the end result becomes so much more meaningful and worthwhile.
When you and someone you meet communicate and agree that you both want the same things, that is when the real romance comes out again.
At one point, you were desperately looking for a husband so you could settle down and have the whole 2.5 kids and white picket fence. The idea of getting on a dating app, meeting someone for coffee, or even texting a man fills them with fear. If your attitude isn’t you might actually have a good time.
As you start to meet men, see how many items they can check off your list of wants. Heck, you don’t even have to go on another date with him if you don’t want. Once you can shift your thinking away from it being a stressful chore and toward it being enjoyable, you’ll be able to lighten up and relax.
We have to do our part and get romance and relationships back to the way they were in the “good old days”.
But then this whole thing happens of talking and “hooking up” and “catching feelings”, communication goes out the window, and you and whoever you thought you were dating are not on the same page anymore.
I love black and white pictures, old Hollywood stars, and I have a special place in my heart for fun facts that only I think are fun about early twentieth-century US history.
I could sit and listen for hours to my parents and grandparents talk about the “good old days”.
The romance comes alive because you want to put in the effort that goes into it.
We are no longer a culture characterized by romance and dating; we are a hookup culture and I do not like it at all.
