Things aren’t how they used to be. Love doesn’t mean what it used to be, that’s for sure. Back in the day finding someone to love and spend your life was all that mattered and the only thing we cared about. No one carried about the clout, no one cared about being part of the one percenter or being famous, all anyone ever cared about was a roof over their heads, food on their plates, and a family of their own to eat dinner with. Being married by twenty five with some kids to call your own was like going to college nowadays.
Since then things have retrogressed and relationships aren’t how they used to be. What used to be such a prestigious and respectful thing has been lost. We spend our time searching for some temporary happiness for a night rather than actually building something real with someone. Nowadays it seems like people are only spending time together until they find something better.
Somewhere along the line love died. What it means to be a gentlemen has been lost and resulted in us guys became fuck boys these days while girls have built these walls to protect themselves that no one is making any intimate connection these days. It’s like everything about being a gentleman has been wiped from our brains and we are acting purely on testicular instinct. Putting ourselves first in every situation regardless of how it may make others feel.
We’ve gone so far backwards I’m honestly curious; Do guys even ask girls to be their girlfriends anymore? Do people still pop the question when they want to take steps forward in their relationship or do you just spend enough nights with someone it gets to the point you just accept the fact that you’re dating now? Or do people just never date and always say they just have a friend?
Does anyone ask to make things real, or does it just happen? Based on what I know from us guys, I’m willing to bet the girls are the ones nowadays that ask to be someone’s girlfriend or boyfriend before a guy even thinks about asking them to be their girlfriend. But what do I know I’m just a guy.
