Day after day we are flooded with choices (Flooded. Haha – get it?).
“Would you like fries or a salad with your meal?”, “What kind of drink do you want?”, “What kind of toppings do you want on your pizza?”. Okay… clearly I’m hungry. But, if you think about it, from the moment you wake up, you are constantly choosing.
I was watching something (I really don’t remember what it was) where they mentioned that having more choices hinders our happiness. And then I thought about it from a relationship perspective.
There are so many people in this world. How will I ever pick “the one”? What if there’s more than one “one”?! What if I can’t settle down because I’m always wondering if there’s something (or someone) better out there?
I think the fear of commitment has been brought on by the possibilities of something new and exciting. Our attention spans have dwindled significantly and I’m sure that short-lived flings are not a coincidence. It seems that long-term commitment is a rarity that is slowly becoming obsolete. Nowadays, a new prospective significant other is just a right swipe away.
The dating scene is looking rather bleak if I’m being honest. Tinder date after Tinder date seem to start with awkwardness and end in confusion and disappointment.
Maybe I’m wrong! Maybe, there are more fish in the pond that are willing to commit than I think there is.
I’ll keep you updated.
