Remember the concept of “damsel in distress”? Well that’s a thing of the past, when the world was free of “femi-nazis” and women-suppressors. It was the time when true gentlemen walked among us and chivalry was a way of life. Well, not anymore.
While so many dynamics of our society have changed in the past, so has the existence of true love. It is untrue to say that love doesn’t exist; it does, but with conditions applied! Modern couples are going through a lot to fortify the concept of true love and they are walking on thin ice. There are no rules to modern romance. The book from the previous link looks at how finding love and dating has changed over time and how you can try to keep up with it.
This might not be your best relationship guide, but it’s so damn true. Check out our very own ‘modern true love’..
1. The Working Couple
The sixteenth year of 21st century is just around the corner and it promises a lot of opportunities. Everyone is taking choices and making a good life in this era. Most couples are busy, with both girls and guys are working. Kisses, hugs and caresses are limited; in fact very limited. Having a date together is a challenge and it has to be planned according to the work-calendar. *Pity*
There is no denying that there is too much stress. You need that 70-grand swanky smartphone, you need to buy that 25-grand party dress or if you simply need to live comfortably in this inflation, then you need to achieve work targets. Poor lovebirds have to handle so much stress to sustain their very love!
3. The Lunch-Break Conversation
If you wish to revoke your belief in love, go to a conference hall in any reputed hotel and stand outside during lunch hour. You’ll see so many people clinging to their phones, asking and telling details. This is how we are keeping the fire burning and quite succeeding at it. We do look forward to those calls, however small in duration!
4. The Better Option Challenge
True love is a major challenge in today’s world. Everybody, whether a guy or a girl has lots of “other” options at work or literally anywhere they go, which can be availed. This luxury was not available to the erstwhile generation. Still true love exists amidst so much emotional chaos!
