And, the breakdown of manners and the inability to communicate directly and honestly with others.
Ruling people out for the slightest imperfection or rushing into relationships.
Going too deep too fast without giving life time to develop.
And, most commonly, dating multiple people at the same time, trying to play the odds by keeping contingency dates on the hook.
In my mind, we have lost some honor and authenticity in how we interact with and develop relationships with others.
I also appreciate being able to learn more about the values and lives of various pseudo- or peripheral-friends that I would normally know nothing about.
