As a 20-year-old living in 2019, I have realized just how difficult it is to date in this generation; it seems to be the age of dating apps where people swipe right and left as if they are flipping through a magazine. Dating can be all too exhausting at times and can really affect a person’s self-esteem if you let it. People will often “unmatch” with you, or worse – completely “ghost” you and act as if you never met or scheduled that second date. I am all about communication so personally, I don’t agree with this. I believe in honesty and having the decency to get back to someone who’s made the effort to reach out to you. My purpose in writing this post is to help others better understand the effects their actions (or lack thereof) have on others. These dating tendencies may cause people to feel insignificant, insecure and super confused – leaving them wondering just what went wrong? Unfortunately, we live in a society where expressing basic human decency just isn’t as common as it once was. I encourage you to follow your heart (and gut) when it comes to meeting new people and dating – however I also encourage you to have the transparency to express your disinterest or reasoning behind going MIA rather than pulling a not so friendly Casper on someone. In the end, it is how we treat one another that will define our character. I choose to treat others how I want to be treated… what do you choose?
