Dating is dead blog

In the hookup culture we now live in, it’s pretty obvious that chivalry is completely dead.

Maybe my parents were old fashioned, maybe growing up in a tight knit Italian family resulted in different values, but I was always preached the value of chivalry and etiquette from the women in my life.

We don’t take the time to get to really know people anymore and that’s why you see relationships and marriages failing at a 50 percent clip.

Ultimately, push is going to come to shove here, and I figured it would have happened by now, but for some reason, it has not.

We no longer have to put in the effort of flowers, chocolates, dates, etc., and if we do, we come off as stage-five clingers.Call me old fashioned, but a nice dinner is worth the money to get to know someone to some extent. All I know is, the more I look around, the less I see men treating women the way that we’re raised to. What happened to pulling out chairs and holding doors?For me, it’s not about the money, and I get why people are stingy when it comes to going out with people they don’t know. What happened to walking on the outside, closest to the street and all that sh*t? When did it become acceptable to just text a girl, inviting her to come bang? I’m not complaining about those instances, I’m just saying, why have we strayed away from what has been established as the norm?I’m not looking for a girlfriend, nor am I looking for a wife.If I take you out to a nice dinner, it’s because I’m a nice guy, and I am looking forward to spending time with you somewhere other than the bedroom.

These social changes are largely driven by women, and their need to avoid any feeling which might be “awkward” or uncomfortable.
