The Final Solution to Dating

Written by Steve Sokolowski

I run a blog where I discussrepparttar topic ofrepparttar 136701 many games people play inrepparttar 136702 dating arena. I've posted hundreds of articles, many of which point out many of these troubles. Even if you haven't readrepparttar 136703 blog, you probably are aware of some of these schemes. While I wish it were easy to sum everything up into one neat, overlying problem, it's not that simple. Let me point out just a few ofrepparttar 136704 issues.

For one, there's a definite lack of respect in dating nowadays. People don't even care about their partners enough to treat them as they deserve to be treated. Gossip, ridiculously high expectations, and rejections by ignorance are only some ofrepparttar 136705 examples in this area. Grandparents are always carrying on about how today's generation has such a lack of respect. They talk about how, in their day, people cared about others and banded together through difficult problems. Why do they talk about these things? Because they're right! Through every activity in which I've been involved, I've encountered this problem. I'm tired of working for a hundred hours on a video project whenrepparttar 136706 president ofrepparttar 136707 organization receives but doesn't bother to even reply to your E-Mails asking him to review it. I'm sick of being ostracized from groups because I don't care to participate in their petty disagreements. And I'm exhausted after people expect me to work to death in volunteer organizations!

There are always exceptions to this rule, and I'm sure that there are many people who do have a great deal of respect for both their peers and their elders. Unfortunately,repparttar 136708 majority, or at leastrepparttar 136709 majority withrepparttar 136710 most influence, simply don't care.

Second, nobody is honest with themselves, let alone anyone else. Dating has turned into a torrent of backstabbing of which even Mark Burnett would be proud. Asking someone out is nearly impossible, becauserepparttar 136711 gossip about it has already spread to a thousand people before you makerepparttar 136712 move. Then, when a rejection occurs (even if it's not rude),repparttar 136713 rejector spreads rumors around to all his/her friends that cause them to completely ignore you, refusing to invite you to parties or even to initiate conversations with you. The biggest insult is that even if you asked point-blank, you'd still never get a truthful answer as to why such harm was directed towards you.

As if what occurs after a rejection isn't enough, people attempt to steal others' girl/boyfriends. One day, things are going well, andrepparttar 136714 next you find yourself wondering what happened torepparttar 136715 relationship that was forming - that is, until you notice that person spending a lot of time with who you thought was your best friend. No explanation is offered, not even a "good-bye."

Third, people are not looking for someone who spends his or her time working to get ahead instead of getting flat-out drunk, who doesn't curse at or ignore his or her mate, and who actually makes time for whatever is occurring between them (whether it be a full-fledged relationship or just plain sex). They say they're looking for these things, but in reality, they're attracted to people withrepparttar 136716 attributes described above. "Confidence" is notrepparttar 136717 answer torepparttar 136718 equation. Assuming they both possessrepparttar 136719 same level of "confidence,"repparttar 136720 above-described person would win every time overrepparttar 136721 "warm, caring, and intelligent" (wo)man that people claim isrepparttar 136722 ideal mate.
