When I was younger, my mother tried to set me up on a date. It was cringe worthy, to say the least. Please, take a moment to picture this: me being nagged everyday about if I talked to Christopher, how Chris was doing, her waving to him across the parking lot when she picked me up after class as I shoved my head under a rock somewhere. What I find most interesting about the whole ordeal is that my mom did not base her desire for us to end up together off his personality; in fact she barely knew anything about him. Except that he was Catholic. And that’s all she needed to know. Perhaps then I am saying this because of how I was raised, but to me, religion should play key role in determining relationships.
We are lucky enough to live in a time when we can pretty much access whatever it is that we want online. You can buy clothes, order food, text mom and get directions to pretty much anywhere. We are the generation of instant gratification. We want what we want when we want it. How has that changed us when it comes to our romantic and dating lives?
