We All Want Something for Nothing
A work ethic in relationships are starting to become a thing of the past. Society has turned into a bunch of "a'ights" and very few "exceptionals." So many people simply do the minimum required to maintain a relationship instead of committing 100% and allow the relationship to thrive.
For example, let's talk a bit about guys...
A guy may approach a woman simply because he has sex on the brain. He will take the shortest path to sex more times than not. If a woman requires little, then he will do just enough to satisfy her requirements so that he can satisfy himself.
His peers will promote his behavior, too. After all, in 2016, how many fathers are teaching their sons anything about respecting women and relationships? It's all about "how many can you hit?" It's a sad cycle that will continue because very few have an interest in doing the right thing. That's no longer required of a man in 2016. Just be charming and the opportunities will present themselves.
As for the ladies...
Some are quick for wanting to be treated like queens despite the fact that they lack the qualities to be one. They curse like sailors in public. They treat their sons like spouses thus causing them to be dependent on their moms and useless to their future girlfriends. They teach their daughters how to put on makeup, but ignore educating them about how to command respect.
Some just want to be seen. They're interested in what impresses other women. So they only entertain guys that come with a stamp of approval from their girls. If he drives a nice car, has a certain look, or maybe a certain status, then he's a keeper. That is until he cheats with the next one who is impressed by shiny objects.
It wasn't always like this, but this is the world that we live in now. Prior to 2000, the most popular agenda people had when dating was marriage. Now it can be anything from free trips to late night encounters. TV, radio, and social media promotes superficial things 24/7. It was bound to affect our brains at some point, right? Why settle on someone who just wants to make you happy when you can have some happiness and excitement somewhere else (if you don't mind a few tears/headaches here and there.).
There are a lot of "single" men and women walking around. They'll tell you that they're single by choice. Don't believe them. They just don't need anything right now.
