Dating is dead
"It's kind of cliché, but it's also so easy to date people in the city," Sarah*, a 26-year-old media assistant, told."It's like sex and attention is a commodity."She's not wrong.At the same time, though, even those people were ready to admit that going on actual "dates" was full of pressure and not very enjoyable. I feel like I'm fighting this almost impossible uphill battle to stand out.
My mission was to figure out what connection, romance and love actually looks like in today's day and age.They played on the same volleyball team or were co-workers on a political campaign.Or they hung out in the same social group or were friends for years before getting intimately involved or got intimately involved right off the bat with no initial relationship plans.She was the first person he called when he passed an exam, and she advised him on what to get his sister for her birthday.On weekends, Kimberly, Glen and their friends would go out drinking and they would always manage to find themselves in a corner of the bar together.
