Everyone wants old school love without old school effort

Old school Love

In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, it can be hard to find the time and energy for a relationship. Of course, people have always been busy, but nowadays it seems like there are more distractions than ever before. If you’re looking for love in 2019 or beyond, here are some tips that will help you find old-school love without having to sacrifice all of your free time or resources:

What does old-school love mean, anyway?

What does old school love mean, anyway?

  • Old-school love is about having respect for each other. It’s about treating your partner with kindness and honesty, even when they’re being an idiot. When you’re in a relationship that’s based on old-school love, you’ll know they’ll respect your opinion as much as their own.
  • That love also means being willing to put in the effort. It means making an effort to get to know someone, rather than just expecting them to come around once they realize how amazing you are (we all know what happens when people figure out how great we are: we get dumped).
  • Old school love means putting your partner first sometimes, even if it means putting up with things that aren’t exactly pleasant or convenient for yourself—because at the end of the day, if you have old-school love then there will be plenty of time for selfishness later on!

We all want to find our person, whether we acknowledge it or not.

We all want to find our person. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all want to find a partner who will be there for us, who we can share our lives with and be ourselves with, who understands us and accepts us for who we are. The truth is that this is more important than anything else in life, including work or money.

We just don’t seem to know how to make it happen anymore.

Old-school love means letting someone in to share your life.

Old-school love means letting someone in to share your life.

Sharing your life with someone is a big deal, because it means opening up to them, trusting them and being vulnerable with them. You can’t do all this alone; you need someone else there who cares as much about the relationship as you do!

There’s value in dating the old-fashioned way.

It’s easy to see why so many people are attracted to the idea of old-school romance: it’s more fun, more meaningful and more respectful.

But what if you’re not dating? What if you’re just out and about at a bar or party with friends, feeling lonely? You’re not in a relationship—you can’t be! You have no one to impress with your awesome dance moves or charming personality. And yet there’s something sad about being alone on Valentine’s Day.

So what do we do? We invent ways to feel less alone even though we are alone (or maybe not). We make plans because our schedules fit together perfectly; we text each other every day because it makes us feel important; we talk about how our work week went even though yours was completely different than mine; I get home early from work so I can spend time with my significant other while they go out for drinks with friends…

You can be old-school in your approach while using new-school tools.

You can be old-school in your approach while using new-school tools.

These days, everything is about social media. We all know that it’s not what you say but how you say it, but with so many people on social media, how do we make sure our messages are seen? Well, there are tools out there to help us find love and connect with other people. Whether you want to meet new people or keep in touch with the old ones (or both), check out these apps that will help get you off the couch and into your community:

  • Tinder: This is one of the most popular dating apps today, especially among millennials who have grown up on technology – it’s easy for them! You set up a profile and begin swiping through pictures of potential matches based on their interests (and yours). If there’s mutual interest between two users then they can send each other messages via text or video chat—and hopefully more!
  • Grindr: Similar to Tinder except geared towards gay men instead; sometimes referred to as “Tinder for gays.” Its slogan/catchphrase is “Where guys get guys.” As far as dating apps go though this one has been accused by some heterosexual women who’ve tried using it themselves being transphobic because only cisgender males are allowed access; however men do seem satisfied overall with their experiences using Grindr which is why this app remains popular despite its controversy surrounding exclusionary policies toward transwomen

Old school love takes time, and that’s OK.

One of the most important things to remember is that old-school love takes time and effort. You can’t rush it, and that’s OK. You have to invest yourself in the relationship and be willing to put in the work. There are no shortcuts around this process; you simply have to be willing to wait it out until your partner decides they want what you have to offer them too. If you’re looking for a more instant gratification kind of approach, then old-school love might not be for you. Unless maybe you’re a millennial who wants everything immediately but still doesn’t like putting in any work whatsoever (in which case, I’m sorry). The only thing I will say about modern dating is this: if someone isn’t willing or able or ready

to make an effort with their significant other now while they’re getting started on their relationship together, then they probably won’t ever do so later down the road either

You don’t have to pretend you don’t care to get them to care about you.

You can’t fake old-school love. You may think that you’re very good at faking it, but the truth is that no one is. In fact, if you want to be genuine and show up in your relationships, then I highly recommend not trying to fake anything at all!

Instead of trying to convince yourself how much you care about someone while secretly wishing they would just leave you alone (or even worse: never come back), why not let them know that they have your full attention? They deserve it! Everyone deserves genuine love and care from their friends or partners without having to pretend like we don’t care about them as much as possible for fear of looking vulnerable or weak (which btw is completely normal!)

Being authentic and showing up is way better than trying to play games.

Sure, it may be nice to think that we live in a world where everyone is honest and authentic. But if you’re anything like me, you’ll know that’s not always the case. We lie to ourselves, our friends and even strangers on the street just so we can get what we want. Whether it’s getting free coffee at Starbucks or getting someone else to do your chores for you, sometimes we find ourselves compromising our values for something as trivial as an extra hour of sleep or an easier life.

It doesn’t have to be this way! You can put down those masks and see what happens when you pursue authenticity without compromise:

Conclusion

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and find someone to love. Don’t worry about whether or not they’re your type; if you like them and they like you, then that should be enough for everyone involved. It’s a new-school approach to an old-school problem—and it works!
