Dating dead men

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?

It’s said that our actions are based on two things, to find pleasure and to avoid pain.

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.

From my grandmother to my mother, you better believe I learned my lessons, either verbally or via the wooden spoon. It's all about hooking up, getting a number, grabbing a drink and getting down.

But why now does it seem like it's completely impossible for men to do what I would consider the 'normal' thing? I think I'm the only single guy I know that actually takes a girl out to a restaurant on a first date. If you take a girl out and show her you're more than some douche looking to just get in her pants, odds are, you're going to get a second date, at least. Treat yourself to a good meal, and if the company is good, why the hell wouldn't you take a girl out to a nice dinner?

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?

Millennials live in an age where sexuality offers validation and pleasure, but pain and shame at the same time.

You can become famous from a sex tape, but ridiculed and slut-shamed for a leaked nude.

Ask a Millennial about dating and you tend to get something along the lines of, “No one wants a relationship,” “Everyone just wants to hook-up,” and, “Dating is dead.” If you’re a millennial you can stop nodding now, because as a life, dating, and relationship consultant, I can tell you it’s absolute nonsense.
