Welcome Happy

Let’s talk about the Modern Day Love Story!

So, we all know that change is good. Or at least it is sometimes, but not when it comes to dating these days. It’s very much different from what our grandparents and parents did.

Attraction

So, with social media being a thing, a lot of people are meeting their person on apps. Which has pros and cons.

Talking

This is when you all are texting and FaceTiming. You know, they lazy way of courting. I hate it. Because sometimes people drag the talking stage out, and usually you’re not the only person they’re talking to.

Link

This is when you both meet up after chatting via text or snapchat. A lot of men these days cannot plan a date to save their lives, so it’s usually us taking over or them saying, “what do you want to do?” Like they didn’t think they’d make it this far.

Ghost

Many times a person will ghost you if they get what they want, they’re no longer interested, or you require too much of them. Those who ghost are cowards.

Resurrect

After months or years of ghosting you, and them realizing things were not better on the other side, the guy tries to come back and love bomb you

Unstable relationships

Many relationships consist of two people who know they are not ready or that they want someone else. They also hurt people finding themselves in relationships.

Why Choose Us

Let me now emphasize that this does not apply to every relationship.


Women fall in love more slowly.

4% of adults over 50 cohabit with their partner without being married.

Men make up 52.4 % of online dating users compared to 47.6% who are women.

COMMON INTERESTS & LOOKS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS

A love story, at least a convincing one, requires three elements – the lover, the beloved, and the adventures they have together. Jane Smiley

What I Think about Dating these days.

I honestly feel like my soulmate is a friend.


I do not enjoy dating. A lot of men do not act their age and have nothing to offer. It’s not what people said it would be. I meet guys who wear a mask and when their true self is exposed, I am disappointed.

Many of the guys I have encountered lack proper communication skills or emotional intelligence. I feel like their parents and society are the blame. They get babied and expect a mother when they get into a relationship.

Questions

What do you all think about dating these days? If you are still on the market, is it by choice?

Do you prefer your own company?

I’m at peace when I’m not with a man. Bad things tend to happen.

How did you meet you significant other?

The last one I met was on Instagram. Let’s just say, I will not do that again. Who he is offline is not how he presents himself online.

Would I consider dating again?

Yes, but I would prefer to start off as friends.
