Relationships aren't easy. It's hard work. Sacrifice, compromise, self-improvement, and understanding the other person's needs. Nowadays, it's all about taking and not giving.

Most people like the idea of romance but when it comes to actual relationships, that's where reality hits in.

If there's no value being exchanged, there's no point into getting into a relationship.

Social media plays a role. It exposes how truly broken we are as a society. We also get exposed to a lot red flags from toxic and abusive people. This puts off a lot of people who do want a healthy bond. Alas, to find someone whose really worth that risk may be lifetime.

Human connection as a whole is decaying slowly

For what researchers say is an array of reasons — including technology, heavy academic schedules and an overall slower-motion process of growing up — millennials and now Gen Zers are having less sex, with fewer partners, than their parents’ and grandparents’ generations did. The social isolation and transmission scares of the COVID-19 pandemic have no doubt played a role in the shift. But researchers say that’s not the whole story: The “no rush for sex” trend predates the pandemic, according to a solid body of research.

UCLA has been tracking behavioral trends for years through its annual California Health Interview Survey, the largest state health survey in the nation. It includes questions about sexual activity. In 2021, the survey found, the number of young Californians ages 18 to 30 who reported having no sexual partners in the prior year reached a decade high of 38%. In 2011, 22% of young people reported having no sexual partners during the prior year, and the percentage climbed fairly steadily as the decade progressed.

California adults ages 35 to 50 who participated in UCLA’s 2021 survey also registered an increase in abstinence from 2011 to 2021. But with the percentage of “no sex” respondents rising from 9% to 14% during that time frame, the increase was not as pronounced.

This guy again. Who is most? There is a decline, but I'd argue most people still want relationships. He just overindexes on shyt because he's a therapist/psychologist.
