Why This Generation Has The Wrong Idea of Love.

In this generation more than ever, people struggle to find love.  People are tired of meeting the misrepresented form of love, tired of being hopeful, tired of believing in love in it’s raw existence.

Why is that:

This is because some think love should come easily and be easy to maintain. The truth is, is that true love does come easily, however, it takes work, hard-work.  Love isn’t a smooth ride, but the journey is worth it.  Most of us in this age want real love, but some do not want the work that comes with love itself.  We want great relationships, but are quick to quit during the storm.  We don’t care to put effort into fixing anything that goes wrong in relationships, we simply try to replace a relationship, especially when the problem is us, we are quick to replace partners. It’s obvious we live in a microwave society nowadays – an impatient generation. We also do not know the meaning of hard-work.  We are used to looking for other equations without solving the current problem.  That mentality also affects our love-life.

1 – True love is considered old school:

Lovely gestures are considered “kissing butt”, we let our pride stop us from doing the things necessary.  We don’t like expressing our love because we’re afraid of looking weak.  Both males and females of this generation mistake being rude, sarcastic and emotionless for good qualities.  Our fear of being walked on causes us to operate like robots looking for a real experience, instead of human-beings open to real experiences. Even good morals and values became a thing of the past. Therefore, what use to be right and loving becomes stupidity and opinions.

    Agreed. I’ve definitely been guilty of the point “True love is considered old school:” and have had a 3 year relationship ended because I wasn’t “loving” enough. I treated that girl like dirt at times because of my own angst. I had those very fears which made me keep walls up.

    I’ve learned since and am trying harder to keep my walls down in my current relationship.

      I can def understand. It’s tough but as long you learned from your past mistakes and willing to do better now you’re on the right track

    Wow, this seriously struck me because it is so true. I’ve had this conversation with so many people as of late. A lot of the problem is people have no passion anymore, refers to what you said about “robots looking for a real experience”. How do you expect to have a “real” experience without allowing yourself down that path. Everything in life is work, including love, and if a person is not willing to put the effort into anything that what do you expect to gain from life.
