Relationships these days aren’t like they used to be. Honestly, i have fallen out of love with the idea of being in love. Most relationships fail. Why? Because no one wants to put the time into making things work anymore. People would rather walk away then solve problems, problems which could easily be solved via communication. Romance is dead. People put so much effort into getting a person and when they have them they no longer find the time to make an effort. Gone are the days of cute coffee shop dates and walks in the park, instead netflix and chill and cocktails take over. People settle for less than they deserve because they don’t want to be alone. People will claim they love you one day and leave you the next. People will be in love with one but dating another, simply because they are scared of admitting their true feelings. People will claim they love you when they are still thinking about the same person over and over again. People are so quick to write “meaningful” posts for their loved ones on instagram or facebook, but how many can say those words face to face. How many of those people would take the time out to write a letter? Not many. “Love” just doesn’t seem genuine anymore. It’s a shame.
— i don’t believe in love. Not anymore.
