I don’t know anyone my age with stories to tell of meeting “the one” and knowing it. I know of several older people, like my parents, who tell stories of “love at first sight,” but I don’t know of any younger people with those types of stories. Have we become jaded? Do we no longer believe in the possibility of soul mates? Is that something that is dying along with the greater generation?
What has happened to our generation? Where has our courage gone when it comes to relationships? I have a girlfriend who can’t go out with a group of girls to a club without taking a Xanax first, because her anxiety at going out in public and possibly meeting a man completely overwhelms her. She is beautiful and smart, but her confidence and courage are completely non-existent in a social setting.
