Dating has obviously changed a lot, and in many ways gotten more fun. Everyone knows some happy couple that met using cheesy pickup lines on tinder, but they also know the tinder date from hell. Dating in this day and age is easy though. All a person needs is a couple core values and they are good to go.
- Always have a picture of a dog or cat
Millenials love their pets so much, that it isn’t too uncommon to hear them called fur babies. Thats a whole mood. Since we don’t have enough money to buy a house and raise real children, we are left with the much better alternative of loving our pets. Have a couple of pictures on the phone to let them know about your family qualities.
2) Know a little bit about astrology, but not too much
The fact is Astrology is a good time. Charting the stars in the sky to mean something about a greater personal destiny? Hell yeah. Life is like a video game. Know a little bit about the signs to make small talk. For example: Scorpios are always a red flag, but might mean good sex so… Take that as it comes.
3) Respect the wait staff
Nothing millennial hate more than a person who disrespects the wait staff. Its horrid. Most of us millennials have either had to take a wait staff job, or have dear friends in the industry. Worst thing a person can do on the date is be a sassy little bitch to the people who made your date delicious.
4) Its okay to go halvesies
We don’t live in a time where women stay at home and eat prescription xanex, while the husband carries a briefcase off to a boys club that makes money. Modern ages mean that women actually have money, and are independent bad bitches who don’t take no shit!
5) Stay away from too much politics
We all know that black lives matter and that the world is starting to warm up, but unless this date is with Nancy Pelosi, remember that there isn’t too much a person can do. Just have some fun and remember that this conversation isn’t going to sway how the senate votes tomorrow morning. Try and keep it simple.
While a lot has changed in modern dating, the basics have stayed the same. Be a good person and people will always be around to date. Being a bad person, not loving a dog or cat, or yelling at the waiter will make anyone undateable for obvious toxic reasons.
