Can you commit to being with just one person? Sometimes I feel like that’s impossible. Relationships these days are not as they used to be.
I totally agree. It is hard. In this day and age, “intrigue” is just a Facebookpicture “Like” away. Now, clearly it’s possible, and I have many friends who are in long-term committed relationships, but the fact remains that it is much easier to meet new and exciting people today than it was even ten years ago. In terms of social networking, one must remember that just about everybody puts up only the best cross section of their life: Pictures where they look hot at the club; at some interesting art opening; witty, well-thought-out posts and comments. Few people put up information about their emotional baggage, pictures of themselves lying in bed eating ice cream and weeping, etc. Just think about all your own dark, secret issues and use that filter when you’re on the internet. That can help dull it all down a bit. If you can wade through the digital swamp, I truly believe you can make it work with the right partner. I just don’t know how to do it myself!
