Millennials Give Advice on Relationships
Love is so versatile. Depending who you ask, you will get different stories from lovers past. I decided to do some research and ask millennials some serious to not so serious questions. Let’s see what this generation truly thinks of love:
What do you find attractive in a partner?
Tall, dark and handsome is the most popular answer. Muscles came in a close second. And a good “package” was also a common trend.
What immediately turns you on in a partner?
When I asked people, one answer that stuck out was “kindness.” We have heard the saying kindness goes a long way. Apparently it is true. A runner up is confidence. Something about confidence just turns anyone on, it is just so reassuring, which is amazing and there is never any doubt.
What is a deal breaker?
Being intimate with someone else when you are talking to someone is definitely a turn off. Obviously that is cheating, but nonetheless it is bad. Not having a sense of humor is a solid second. If you are dull as a brick, things will not work. Also trust in general is a BIG deal.
What keeps you in a relationship?
Money overwhelmly was the winner, followed by attractiveness. Also, insecurity in finding someome new was a popular answer. This means you get so used to a relationship that you are not sure you want to be single again.
Do your family and friends accept your significant other?
If your family and friends don’t accept your partner, it is so much harder to love them. This is because they are your world. If your friends and family don’t care, you slowly but surely start to not care too. There are some exceptions, but for the most part a lot of people are influenced by their close circle.
Overall, these questions are major factors in every relationship. For some, approval is everything whereas others just view it as a suggestion. Whatever the case may be, some may argue that millennials view love in a different way. It is more open for the most part, although some are still more conservative. Either way, love is crazy throughout any generation gap, big or small.
