Dating trends are changing, and women are later and later for marriage, kids, even a general long term relationship. Here’s why:
Relationships can be a detriment to the early start of a career. Or at the very least, they make things more difficult. When you want the freedom to move where you want, to travel where you wish, and would like to keep that extra bit of cash at the end of each paycheck, a long-term partner seems like more of a headache than a heartthrob.
Becoming a person is difficult work ( it usually requires lots of trying, failing, and drinking). Many people, men and women included, spend their early 20’s trying to figure out their likes/dislikes, interests, hobbies, and general things that make them happy. When you’re still busy figuring out who you are and what you want, who has time for a serious commitment?
It’s easier than ever to find a date with today’s myriad of apps (WhistleUp, Tinder, OkCupid, etc) and it makes it even more difficult to find someone worth settling down with. Why go long-term when a fun date with someone else is just one profile away?
This may sound too simple, but it’s the truth--being on your own is empowering. There’s very few points life where the only person you have to worry about is yourself, and women are taking advantage of that more and more.
Many millennials came from homes of divorce. If most of the parents you know didn’t work out, that’s not going to make you want to race into a long-term relationship, even if marriage seems like a far-of prospect. Dating around casually is the next best thing.
Whether you’re looking for a long-term or no-term commitment, WhistleUp can help you find it. Join today! And for more reasons why millennial women are struggling to commit, check out this article by Elite Daily.
