It destroys community and it doesn’t bring happiness.

    Damn – I thought this many times but this article really puts it into perspective. Thanks for sharing it.

    True and sad. Women, I think, have a little more freedom in this than men–it is not so commonly misconstrued if two women are meeting for lunch or a movie–but it will catch up with us too.

    It seems to me that another aspect of that hypersexualization of everything has to do with an apparent perception by a large number of people that any date must now end in bed. And only after a couple of such dates comes the idea of thinking if one of the persons involved loves the other… (At least it is the impression I get from reading stories or watching movies…) What has happened to the idea that going out to the theatre or for a meal is only about the play or movie or the food with interesting conversation between two friends, who might or might not later come into a deeper relationship after they had a chance to get to know each other? And it unnecessarily complicates the lives of young people who no longer seem to be given the time to grow as people and to learn about human relationships and to learn to love, because of the influence of the medias and of peer pressure to hurry up and get intimate.
