Instead of strong, meaningful relationships, we struggle through long series of bad dates and hookups. Instead of meeting people in real life, we’re constantly swiping and messaging somebody new. Instead of telling people how we feel, we don’t text back. We no longer have people cancel, we get flaked on, and then we flake on other people. We no longer date or commit, we “see” and “hang out” with each other. We are complicit in a dating culture that systematically prevents intimacy. We’ve become a generation afraid of being in love.
