By- Shreya Sharma

In today’s time, it is cool to be single rather than being a relationship. You should feel happy to be single because the relationships nowadays are just a mirror image of romantic relationships. They are not actually what true romantic relationship used to be in the time that we call past. Modern dating has more become a show of a relationship. The modern relationship has come up with so many new terms and phrases that it has become hard to understand what really a relationship is. Here are 17 brutal truths about modern dating that makes you feel amazing if you are single.

  1. Commitment phobia

Earlier people wanted “commitment”, but now people want a “label-free” relationship as it gives you all kind of freedom. It is like you are in a relationship, but you are not in a relationship, so you are free from that cheating problem.

  1. When you do not care, you have more power

The person in the relationship who cares less than the other has more power in the relationship.

  1. Replying immediately is a sin

You have never ending games to play. You are constantly thinking how to attract the other person and then you decide to stop replying to his texts immediately so that you leave him thinking if you like him or not.

  1. Talking on phone is torture

You have nothing to talk over the phone, plus texting is easier and cheaper. You have a lot to say on texts than talking on phone or face-to-face. You only have late night calls in the beginning of a new relationship which probably means the end of another relationship.

  1. Social media flirting is cool

Flirting on social media is not ‘cheating’ for people. You somehow accept that it is not cheating, and fighting over it is like wasting your energies.

Mostly breakups happen when one of you has stopped feeling anything because they are bored by then.

  1. Thin line between romantic and creepy

When the other person is hopelessly romantic at heart, this when you have to decide if you want to be with them or not. If you find their overly romantic gestures creepy, you will prefer to end the relationship.

  1. New style of breaking up

Break ups happen on the phone now, respecting the relationship and each other are things of the past. It’s not mandatory to express your feelings face-to-face because somehow, no one deserves that anymore.
