Online dating vs. Real Life

The percentage of 25-34 year-old men who live with their parents has increased by nearly a third over the past five years.  Mama’s free home cooked meals and low rent isn’t a bad deal in a today’s tough economy. So what does this mean for relationships? Statistically men and women are increasingly marrying later in life. According to the US Census 99.6  million Americans over the age of 18 are unmarried, 44.9 percent are females. So what do these numbers tell us about today’s women and men? Things have definitely changed since the 1960’s. The household and relationship dynamics have definitely shifted in today’s World.

More people are online dating, approximately 40 million Americans and 52.4 percent are men. So is online dating easier then just connecting with people? I have been online dating, more like I have an online dating profile but I don’t really feel like it making a difference. I’ve had several men hit me up online and I’ve chatted back with them and not to say that the conversation wasn’t great but I did not follow through. I got tied up in everyday life and the fact that I never met the person made it easy to disconnect. I check my profile once every two weeks and I don’t take it that seriously. Living in the largest city in America connecting with someone should be easy right? Ah NO! Thanks to technology and probably just plain old new york culture. People don’t just talk to other people anymore. Often people run around like their lives are more important than others, as they scroll through their iPhones and Andriods, never taking the time to say hi to their fellow neighbors. People stare at you with their headphones on during the morning commute and not once do they crack a smile. That’s New York for you. My favorite way to scare people is to just say hi… people automatically think I’m crazy or I want something from them. This city never sleeps and nor does the hustle and bustle of getting by.

So where is their room for love, for connection? Is that why online dating seems to be an undying trend? Is it easier to hit someone up on Facebook or Okcupid, than it is to talk to someone passing by? Wow times have indeed changed. Do you feel meeting someone online first is better than in real life? Either way whether it’s a person’s profile or a person trying to impress you, people lie and people don’t always have chemistry. I guess it depends on the person. I would much rather met someone in person first than online.

Regardless, I have not given up on love and finding my Prince Charming or my Prince Charming finding me. I have decided to keep smiling and stay open to the possibilities of connection and romance, be it on my daily commute or online. 17% of the 40 million people online dating have married in the last year and 20% are in committed relationship.

So there is hope for today’s Men and Women. Times are changing but change does not have to be a bad thing. Only time will tell.

      Is Sex Overrated??????

sex

I have heard my guy friends say it and I have heard my girl friends say it… “Sex is overrated!”. So I pose the question, is sex actually overrated? It’s fair to say we live in a society that over sexualizes everything in television, movies, the internet, advertisements, video games, products, you name it, you really can’t escape it. However, does that make the act of sex overrated? or does it depend on the individuals? I have heard so many people say it, it really makes me wonder. For after the climax, after the act is done, is it all just overpraised, overesteemed and magnified? true food for thought. I believe sex on its own can be good, okay but when you add the bond, the art of it, the magic and true connection it can build that can’t be overrated… Right?

What do you think??

Mo -NO::1+ WHERE ART THOU??????? 3.6.13

            Mo-No:::: o_O  The Tales of being single in The City ( NYC)….

So this is my first Mo-No entry ever. I have recommitted myself to this blog and as much as I like news, sport, politics and art there is pretty much nothing I like more than love. Oh yes, I am a sucker for love, throw on a romantic comedy, bring me a fresh bouquet of orchids and you have me at hello lol. Yes I am a hopeless romantic, I was probably read too many happily ever after stories as a child. The Princess meets her Prince and they live happily ever after. Yeah Right! Happily Ever after in today’s world means the honey moon ends, she hates him, he resents her and they get a divorce. Or the Prince cheats on the Princess, then the Princess burn his clothes in his Mercedes-Benz, o hold up that’s a scene from Waiting to Exhale. It’s all the same difference, you hear more stories or divorce, betrayal, resentment, child support and visitation than stories of triumph, partnership and anniversaries. Well I’m mono, as in alone, single, one, it’s just me in the biggest city in America, New York and I’m single. New York city has over 8 million people who call this place home. So how and where am I supposed to find my Prince Charming?

Well let the chronicles begin –Mo-NO– As the wise man once said nothing worthwhile comes easy or something like that smh. So Where? Where art thou?

Over 30,000 people have read by blog in the last 3 years…So I’m asking you guys.. where did/do you go to find your Mr. or Ms. Right?

Online? Cafes? Clubs? Bars? Museums?

Sharing is caring… unless it’s infection in that case don’t share. But leave a comment and share your stories, advice or plain old frustration.

See you next time!
