Relationships in 2017

I’m looking forward to connecting more on daily topics, and relationships this year. 

Poetic Intro:

Feel this energy roaring through my veins like the spark to the flame. Mass elevations of dynamic shadows of intoxicating melodies all dance in my head, as we introduce creative possibilities for a new year.

Love is complicated; but the same. New temptations every time it rains…but great decisions, made sound… made sane.

What are we going to do differently this year to preserve what we call relationships in 2017?

 

In looking at the Millennial generation, most are putting off serious connections till they are in their late 20s, or early 30s, per stats from the U.S Census Bureau.  If you are currently on your second marriage, you are already aware that 40 to 50 percent of first marriages will also end in both parties moving on in opposite directions.  Finally, if you are single, and dating… I’m sure you have already encountered the “friend’s syndrome”; which spilled over from dating in the 80s, and 90s; also, known as friends with benefits.

This topic came to mind after listening to a young lady grill her date at a restaurant after only sitting down twenty minutes… she knew his annual salary, what type of car he drove, and I’m sure she documented his social security number somewhere…

If you are happy should you marry?  Have marriages, and friendships turned into arrangements with set guidelines?  If so, are these arrangements one -sided or mutually beneficial?  Is the question really what can you do for me ?  Is it  Not Coffee ?

  1. These are great questions. I have quite a few millenial friends and I’ve noticed a similar trend. It seems that many do not want to settle down because they don’t want to repeat their parents’ relationship patterns. Inevitably, though, the generation has created a cultural dilemma it seems.
