Dating today is certainly different than any generation before, but you still should be able to sum up your status in a few words. Either we are dating. Or not.
‘There are no men!’
This is the statement I probably side-eye the most. No, there are not fine, eligible bachelors falling out the trees every time you walk down the street, but there are good men looking for a solid relationship in whatever city you are in.
‘One thing led to another, and…’
This often pops up in sharing the story of a midsummer’s night hook-up. It’s in the same neighborhood of “I don’t know how it happened” and down the street from “And then I woke up.”
Consensual sex doesn’t just happen. It is a progression of acts that we allow. Since there is nothing passive about passion, be active in the important decisions of sharing your body with someone and own your sexual desires.
