Study Finds Dating is Archaic for Young Generations reports On
20-somethings focusing on themselves rather than on serious relationships
Professor Scott Hall, a family studies expert at BSU, stated that the research expressed that people are far more focused on their independence rather than settling down. BSU student Kyle Basedan states dating is certainly not on the top of her priority list.
"I would say getting my degree is first, finding a job is a close second and dating is third."
Student Quinton Steward stated that his generation is far more focused on the idea of independence rather than on coupling up. He says, “There’s just this huge push for independence," Stewart said. "Everybody wants to be successful, on their own, doing their own thing."
The numbers show that the average women is now getting married at 26, while the number was 20 in the 1950s. But it is not just women, as men are now putting off marriage for nearly a decade, as compared to their grandfathers.
For the young adults that have decided to focus on individual pursuits, rather than small-sphere communal, Hall questions the ability to adjust to the concept of monogamy once they are ready to settle down.
Studies have now shown that the increase in life experiences prior to settling down make a young person much more picky regarding whom they will date. The methods of dating have now changed rather staunchly as well.
Internet and for-sex dating give young persons a chance to explore their options prior to marriage, says Hall. BSU students Kristen Windstrom and Emily Carpenter both noted that they see the internet's effects on their dating experience, as well as those they know.
no guys have the courage anymore to come up to a girl and be like, 'Do you want to come out on a date with me?'" Windstrom said.
"There are people like who are online dating for years and they've never even met each other," Carpenter said. "That's not dating. Go out one-on-one. Get to know the person in person."
There are still some young people going against the trend and sticking to tradition.
"It's not my kind of thing, I don't like to date around," said BSU student Felecia Alderman, holding hands with her longtime boyfriend.
