My reaction to your entire analysis was a huge “Amen! preach it, sister!” I completely agree with you. It’s not a new thing, though — it’s very old.

But there has been a noticeable shift. I think a couple of variables play a huge role: 1. the rapid proliferation and accessibility of porn; and 2. the ease of meeting people casually through such platform as Tinder and such. It’s cheapened the value of building a relationship and of women in general.

Did you see my other article on how the hookup culture is ruining my dating experience? It was published on Friday. I explore this connection more there.
