Generation Y (Millennials) Perceptions of Dating

"Millennials are sometimes referred to as the Boomerang Generation or Peter Pan Generation, because of the members' perceived penchant for delaying some rites of passage into adulthood, longer periods than most generations before them." BookSources/9780972672702

This quote is not intended to "diss" or hurt anyone's feelings.  Instead, I added it to put the spotlight on how things are different for our generation.  The differences are not exclusive to the workforce, but also in dating.

Thank you to a certain someone who sent me this video.  It is hilarious, yet terrifyingly realistic.  You have to watch it.

“Millennials are basically getting to know one another through their smartphones,” said Green. "That creates a lack of motivation and effort. How do you create something meaningful if all you’re doing is pressing a few buttons while you’re sitting in your own space? Maybe you can create intrigue, but eventually you've got to spend quality time together in person."huffingtonpost

As someone who feels closer to others by spending quality time with them in person, I have a tendency to not respond to texts when I feel like the person isn't making an effort to see me.  I am also much more likely to get bored and/or annoyed when texting is the main venue for communication.

Kelly: Are you guys meeting about WUPHF? You know that that was my idea, right?  I said to Ryan, "I try to call you, and you don't have your phone. I try to I.M. You, and you're not online. I wish there was a way that I could do everything all at once, and I could just be like this little dog going, 'Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!'"  
I will miss The Office, but I will still find ways to include it in posts.
