2. Wanting to find the special someone
When you hear your grandparents, and even your parents, talk about their past relationships it sounds vastly different than dating today. You won’t hear them talk about finding people on Tinder to date for two weeks until they get bored. In the past, there was a bigger need to find your “special someone” and once you did, you held on tightly.
3. Expressions of emotions are diluted through social media
In an old-fashioned relationship, you would give your partner flowers or a special note when you want to tell them you care. But today, people often opt for the more convenient: tagging with a post on Facebook. While still a nice gesture, this newer expression of emotions is so easy and happens so frequently that it doesn’t feel quite as personal or romantic.
