I guess somewhere along the way dating became a taboo.
Dating doesn't mean you can't hang out with your friends or go have your gym time or have your five-hour video game binge or have your typical "bar night with guys" every Thursday.It also doesn't mean that you and your partner are going to somehow become conjoined at the hip forced to spend every waken moment with one another.The list could go on and on but let's just be blunt here, you just don't want the title. Being in a relationship used to be the thing to do in high school, I mean you were guaranteed a date to any school dance, you had someone to take those disgustingly cute holiday pictures with and you had someone to get you through all the miserable twists and turns that high school can throw at you.And then you enter college and suddenly being in a relationship is like a giant anchor attached to your leg. You begin to fall into the "netflix and chill" style of dating (as if this is actually a form of dating).As graduation approaches the game slowly starts to change but its all the same players on the field.
You actually have to work to get to know another person.After a while, dating became a game of who can play who first and "Netflix and chill" became an appropriate conversation starter to get a person to sleep with you.Dating became so lost within society that boys now have an illogical sense as to what it actually means.So for all the guys out there who have ever avoided a relationship for whatever reason you tell yourselves, this is for you.You get to know each other, hang out with each other and eventually it gets to a point where you are talking every day.Experiencing this chapter of your life with someone special can be just as beneficial, and I've found that guys want just that. They like having a cool girl to "chill" with and the added advantage of hooking up regularly.
