Happy Valentine's Day to you all,
I attended a discussion at the College library about the topic of love as a way to spend my Valentine's Day this year. I wasn't in the mood to ask anyone out tonight and nobody asked me out to do something. I did ask a couple of friends to come with me to this discussion but only got a rejection from them.
Anyways, I found out different reasons to why we fall in love from different attendees. It seems like chemical reactions in the body was one of the major factors or as many would say "chemistry." Some people during the discussion mentioned arranged marriages, philosophy, and religions too.
I mentioned that different generations in our society has a different view on love. The couple of people who understood what I was saying were people in my age category. It seems like in my age group category I'm constantly bombarded with the whole idea of "experimenting." Surely, I'm guilty of buying into that idea but at the same time I don't like it. Surely, I've experienced what I like and didn't like in the past.
The whole "YOLO" idea was whispered among the people in my age category as something normal day to day topic. It translates to "You ONLY LIVE ONCE."
I can be wrong on my observations about my peers and how easily acceptable at my age to be doing those "experiments." There are a couple of us among many people in my age category who wants that honest relationship and aren't against dating.
A guy there agreed with the fact that it's a common thing to hear guys in my age group getting asked to go to the "bars" and "clubs" by our peers for that reason of you might get "lucky."
Do older generations saw that a common day to day conversation or I'm just imagining that my generation is more experimental with the whole idea of dating? While I'm typing my thoughts on here the more my mind wants to ignore wanting to know because it would show me being the "weird" young guy. Why would I care about what people think of me now after I've posted this topic?
I believe that's the problem I have and many people would not admit at my age about asking such questions like this one because it makes them vulnerable. I for sure can sense some older generations on this website ready to tear this whole topic apart into pieces !
