Superb Opinion

  • No, the mating behavior of our species is never going to change a lot. We are naturally "serially monogamous". We will frequently divorce, but not generally when the children are still little, and most of us still try and seek love.

    For example, read "The Art of Loving" by Ovid which is about 2000 years old from Rome. Maybe include the sequel "Remedies against Love".

    While the books contain some useful tips for dating they also help you see how much we are still the same after 2000 years.

    The second book is mainly about breaking an attachment to be free for new conquests. I cannot say I approve of this guy's writing and morals, but it offers great insights.

  • Yes they do, and at a scary rate, as today is more for... Drunken/Smokin parties, pants down a$$ up, washing hand and remain friends.. and all that i blame on technology, i'm scared for the Generations to come, as all day are.. Facebookinh, Instagraming, tiktoking, Of, etc, etc... Self esteem and Responsability kinda gone down the drain, is all about likes and fame...🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Most Helpful Girls

  • I don't know about dying out, but people are way less patient than before. Yes, many are after sex. Many give up on the relationship as soon as something goes wrong. My parents, are NOWHERE near the person they used to be when they first met. They built on themselves, together.

  • Only a complete moron would think this IS NOT the case. Yes, relationships are dying out. The Internet was a game changer.

    Idiots on this site want to believe that apps like Tinder are just about guys. Wrong. Make a free account and find out for yourself.

  • Relationships are dying out because we don’t NEED partners, most people WANT partners. How often do you hear someone say they need one? When you shift need to want, it no longer becomes a priority

    • And when you shift from want to need it becomes a priority. I do hear people say they want a partner but sometimes those people are still growing and learning about themselves and what they need.

    • @barryliverstone maybe but at the same time values back then were a lot different than they are now. Back then if you didn’t have a family and kids, you didn’t have your crap together. Now people prioritize having life together for themselves. You definitely can’t say values back then were the same. People back then stayed in bad relationships and didn’t have much room to get out of them

    • Back then?

  • If it's dying out it's because your partner is making it all about themselves they're being selfish they should be able to take you to that place that you want to go to if they can't do that of course it's going to die out it's going to get boring but when the guy makes it all about you and can take you to the Moon that relationship will not die out

  • Seems your looking in the wrong places!

  • no. i think relationships will always exist and the reality is all statistics show must peple still want long term relationships

    but i think we see a rise of more sexual relationships as we move away from the puritanical social constructs of old that said sex was only for marriage, sex outside of marriage is a sin, etc, etc

  • I used to think that until I met my boyfriend. 14 years I spent in an unhappy relationship. I preferred just sleeping around. Using each other with no strings. That's how I met my boyfriend. He changed my mind and I couldn't be happier

  • I think social media has played a role in it. Statistics also say younger people are masturbating more instead of sex or relationships. What do u think?

  • They are for a lot of people, but that is a self inflicted problem.

  • statistics prove they are dying out in the west at least

    marriage rates plummeting, divorce rates haven't stopped completely, people virtue signaling and being political correct instead of being honest, superficiality and fakeness overriding genuine personality and character traits

  • Sex is a big part of most relationships. If it weren't, we would call it a friendship. It's up to you to decide whether or not to have sex. Just realized that you can't trade sex for love or commitment. Have sex because you want to have sex.

  • No. Some people in my school hook up, but a lot still have relationships.

  • The core never dies. The trends will blow away in the winds of change.

  • I'd say so

  • Sadly yes. I mean the sex is fun but it would be nice to date

    • Same c:

    • Yeah we all feel that way being treated like an animal kind of sucks

  • Kind of. Young people do not seem to want to be in relationships nowadays. I feel like in the future people will laugh at the idea of marriage.

  • It seems that way. I am not sure if it is the tail wagging the dog.

  • No, you're generation is simply not at the relationship stage yet, let alone the sex stage.

  • I feel like some are. Very rare men these days want a good woman.

  • Nope. Relationships are just as strong as they have been. However social media tends to show fakeness and the 10% fringes.. not the majority of actual relationships.

    • Are you sure? I don't always see that. :/

    • I am sure. Most healthy relationships don’t require social media to verify what the two people know and feel

    • I'm not talking about social media. I'm talking how men always just want sex but not a good woman with a loving heart.

  • Yeah I do feel it’s more common it’s mostly just sex. I am just happy I got a girl who loves sex and likes doing others things with me to build our relationship.

  • Relationships are in the toilet because of feminism, social media, dating apps, OnlyFans, and simps. Get rid of these awful things and relationships will get better.
