I read this saying the other day that got me to thinking: Dating in 2016 is horrible. Everyone lies. Everyone plays games. Everyone cheats. There's no exclusiveness. There's no trust. It's "what have you done for me lately? If I'm unhappy I'll cheat." No staying power. No building together. Who taught us how to love like this?"
My first thought was that this is nothing new, it has been this way for as long as I remember. Yes now days maybe more people split up but that is because it is easier to leave. Society as a whole does not promote monogamy and well, it isn't a shame to cheat and it isn't a shame to lie or split up anymore. It is partly a breakdown of moral values but that is a completely different blog...
Back to this post I saw, my second thought was that many people are just a walking cliche. They never appreciate what they have and are always looking for something better, for greener pastures. They are the ones who have no staying power, when the going gets tough, the tough get going and they well...just leave. Once they give up what they had they realize that nothing is as it seems and the greener pasture isn't so green after all. So, they want back what they once had. These people always want what they can't have, don't appreciate what they've got until its gone and in the end what they want back might have sailed to a different port.
My final thoughts on all of this is that some people just can't be happy, they expect perfection yet are not perfect themselves. They are just never happy with what they have. They always want something different, something better, something more, but they never find happiness. They want excitement but yet life is not always exciting, it actually can at times be rather dull. So they leave what they have and for a while it is exciting but then that ends and they are back to where they began, looking for something new.
So many people don't work at anything because it is just this viscous cycle that goes on and on and they just keep searching endlessly for the greener pasture only to find that the grass is not greener on the other side. It is all the same, just sometimes different shades of green.
