Here are 8 problems that previous generations didn't have with dating that we managed to create for ourselves. One-night stands were nowhere near as common as they are now.

Family values are considered very important in Eastern European societies.

He saw her from across the room…” that old chestnut, has proven true for me, every time.With 3.6 million more women than men Ukraine has a similar gender imbalance.Women in Russia and Ukraine are very family-oriented.Today’s teens, those just tiptoeing into the shallow end of attraction and romance, they know what a dating app is. All the ways I interacted with the opposite sex were in person. And then when I got my career, when it was time to go out and really use the wealth of knowledge I’d built up, the game changed entirely. Suddenly we were all too “busy” to meet someone during the natural course of life that literally every couple since the dawn of time had used to meet their partners before us. I’ve always been an early adopter of technology (late bloomer in literally other way), but in reality online dating had existed for ten years by then. I was still “weird” for setting up an online dating profile ten years after the invention of online dating, but I was horribly late to the party when I waited two weeks to download Pokemon Go. No one in law school was truly interested in me (of course they weren’t), and I was watching other people connect with their future spouses left and right. I’ve pursued plenty by the way, to absolutely no avail. Am I the only person who thinks online dating is illogically setting us up to fail? What’s going to happen is that it’s going to fizzle out.

The confusion you might be feeling, the confusion I now have as a building block of my psyche, has been this cloud of mystery hanging over my late twenties and early thirties that exists, almost like a living, breathing thing in my day to day life, that no one can explain. I think it means meeting at least one person via online dating in nine years who wants to hold your hand. I’m not entirely sure I’ve met that many hands I want to hold, either. Neither will put forth any effort toward a second meeting. No pressure or anything, you’ve got two hours and two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc: Go! Can you imagine the strength of the lightning strike you’d need to meet a stranger for the very first time and actually begin to develop real feelings for them? Yes, every now and then a couple will meet, fall in love, and marry as a result of online dating. Millions of online daters and you know two couples.
