Chatty, fun, and confessional, 31 Dates in 31 Days is an entertaining journey that offers astute insights into the modern dating scene.You can swoon, you may spoon, but now you can Smoon™!As fun as it is to find a hottie to hit up every weekend, no strings attached, one of you is bound to feel something, and it is sure to end in heartbreak.Moral of the story: it's ok to take a gamble on someone (or two.. or seven), just make sure you understand the difference between love and lust.With the changing of the seasons, the flower may wilt and sway in the harsh winds of reality, but a good gardener will not let the flower die. Oh my gosh, you just got a new Tinder match, and he's so so cute! Tinder is one of the new ways The Millennials have turned to find "love" in their area.Sometimes, the gardener isn't ready to tend to your garden, and that's OK. For those of you who aren't tech savvy (or live under a rock), Tinder is an online dating app that allows people 18 and older to search a radius of their choosing based on their location for "singles" in their area.I find that FOMO, fear of missing out, is not limited to just concerts we can't afford or parties that we aren't invited to.The Millennials look at nearly everything with it, including relationships.
In the poorly quoted words of Barney Stinson, "It's not you versus one bimbo, it's alllll the bimbos in the world versus you." Yeah, I don't like those odds either.Why risk wasting your precious time, money, and youth on someone when you could find someone better?Falling in love, or even just giving love a chance to blossom today has become too risky because the next best thing might be coming into your life tomorrow.When this happens, the loss you feel is minimal; you likely have ten or more matches ringing your phone off the hook and thousands more at your fingertips.
It's a gamble, one that has a big immediate payout that you can receive again and again at the flick of your thumb. 95.9 percent of your matches are looking for something strictly physical.(Personally, I blame Apple because it seems every time you get a new i Phone, the newer, prettier, better one comes out the next month. ) Instead of banking on what could be if something happens tomorrow, we should be investing on what could be with the person who's here now.
