Why Relationships Don’t Last

It’s 2016, divorce papers are like birth certificates, everybody has them. And if you’re not married, commitment is like the 20 second ad before a YouTube video. As much as you want to watch last year’s pie eating contest, you can’t, because you don’t have 20 seconds to waste. Relationships don’t last. Years ago, it was possible to fall in love, but now, we’re all lonely, because we’d rather stay inside and watch movies.

For starters, everybody who’s not an introvert, do not try to be introverted. This whole trend of being socially awkward is really awkward. If you love going to the club, go to the club. This whole fad of social awkwardness is beyond ridiculous. People really assume that being weird is cool. It’s not. You don’t wake up one day suddenly feel anxious because you’re in a room full of strangers, it just happens. But if you’re one of those individuals who can go in the club, be comfortable, and have fun, do it. Don’t stay home and make a Netflix account because you want to fit in on Tumblr. Go outside.

Furthermore, according to Google, there were 7.12 billion people in the entire world for the year 2013. That was 3 years ago and I know that number has skyrocketed, because 4 of my friends have had like 10 kids since then. For a small fish with a great taste in women, there is too many. I, myself, have never been in love, so I don’t know what it feels like, and I’m not sure if I want to know what it feels like. Relationships do not last because half the time we, millennials, do not know what love feels like. I love fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoe pie, and buckets of shrimp, but they’ve never mad my heart hurt. Well, there was this one time I ate a whole bucket of shrimp on Christmas Eve, and had to open my gifts in the bathroom, but that’s not the point. Love is suppose to affect us mentally and physically. But the only loves we know are parental guidance and our favorite foods.

Now back to the too many people portion. There are way too many options for everybody. And people fall in love for the wrong reason. Women love material, money, and a sense of humor; while men love a nice body, a pretty face, and a nice body. Unless you’re rich man is a wealthy man, he won’t have that money forever. And most comedians are awkward and depressed, so off stage that funny guy isn’t so funny. The things we fall in love with aren’t permanent. A not tight waist doesn’t look the same after 3 kids. And a pretty face sometimes loses its structure because intense stress levels. 

We fall in love with attributes, status, and lifestyles instead of the actual person. When all these items such as money, clothes, and figure leave, what are you left with? You’re left with a personality, you’re left with assertiveness, you’re left with sarcasm. These are the things we need to fall in love with. No many how many times your body, your pockets, or your friends might change, you will always remain yourself. If we don’t start falling in love with people’s personalities we’re all doomed. I don’t want to Netflix & Chill in a retiring home. Netflix probably would even update their movies. I’d be stuck watching the same Law & Order episodes for the rest of my life.
