Personally, I've never been educated about the rules of relationships.
Others believe dating someone who is a decade or more older is simply “too old.”BS Factor: 8If your sex life is great, and the two of you engage in interesting conversations, have fun and connect on a deeper level, then age is just a number.Yes, sometimes it may be strange for a 20-year-old to be tangled up with a 30-year-old, or a 24-year-old to be dating a 21-year-old.But, I feel this is only an issue when you are in your early 20s. We are by no means “put together.” We have no idea where we are going, what we want or what we are going to do when we get there. I'm not talking about the rules your parents made for you when you were 15 and screaming at your mom to let you sleepover at your boyfriend's house. You shoot him a text, letting him know you had a fun night. Two days later, you’re debating whether to write off that apparently perfect person you met on Saturday night, or to pitifully send another text because, maybe, the message didn’t send. We spend our rent money on plane tickets, and we are always searching for something more.
We are the generation of laissez-faire souls who thrive off meaningless sex with good-looking people.
I'm talking about those unspoken rules our generation places around dating.
The fact is that no matter how in denial you are, these so-called rules exist.
And members of our generation actually follow and endorse them, although they'll never admit it.
Have you ever stopped yourself from sending a text message because your friend told you it came off as desperate?
Have you ever resisted the urge to sleep with someone because it was only your second date?
