The Truths About Modern Dating

The dating truth may be ugly, but it can be funny too! Read these hilarious, dating truths! 

1. The partner who cares less has all the power...nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested, right?
2. Phonecalls is a no no. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via texting - which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.
3. Making plans? This doesn't happen anymore! People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other potential romantic interests) whereabouts thanks to texts & social media. If you aren’t the top priority, your invitation to spend time will be given a “Maybe” or “I’ll let you know” and the deciding factor(s) will be if that person has offers more fun/interesting than you on the table.
4. Someone who hurt you isn’t automatically going to have bad karma...not yet anyways! It may only seem fair, but sometimes people cheat and betray and move on happily while the person they left heartbroken in bits.
5. The only difference between your actions being romantic and creepy is how attractive the other person finds you.
6. Let’s chill..& ..Wanna hang out? are vague phrases that likely mean “let’s hookup” — and while you probably hate receiving them, they’re the common way to invite someone to spend time these days, and appear to be here to stay.
7. As embarrassing and preposterous as this is, people consider Facebook’s ''In a relationship'' label to be the equivalent of an online wedding band.
8. The text message you sent went through. If they didn’t respond, NO it wasn’t because of malfunctioning phone carrier services. Defo, defo not.
9. So many people are scared of commitment and being official that they’ll remain in a label-free relationship...which blurs lines and only works until it doesn’t. I’ve said it many times before, I’ll say it again – “WE'RE JUST TALKING” is opening the door for cheating that technically wasn’t cheating because, hey, you weren’t together together. Yeah!?
10. Social media creates new temptations and opportunities to cheat. The private messaging and options for subtle flirtation (e.g. liking of pictures) aren’t an excuse or validation for cheating, but they certainly increase the chances of it happening.
11. Social media can also create the illusion of having options, which leads to people looking at Facebook as an attractive people menu instead of a means of keeping contact with friends & family.
12. When dating, instead of expressing how they feel directly to you, a person is more likely to post a Facebook status or Instagram a Tumblr-esque photo of a sunset with a quote or song lyric of someone else’s words on it, and while it may not mention your name, it’s blatantly directed at you.
