Broke Man!

In today's society, materialism is high and everyone wants to compete with one another over the latest fashion labels, technology, events (parties, trips, concerts, etc.) and the list goes on.  Everyone wants to have the most likes on Instagram, retweets on Twitter and whatever approval of self gratification there is for SnapChat (I don't have SnapChat). 

There seems to be a societal disdain for the ordinary.  Everyone is striving for the "extra" ordinary and to be flashy just to impress people they don't like or people on the other side of an app that they may never meet.  So, if a person is not only striving to keep up with the Joneses, but the Kardashians as well, it could be hard for them to date.  The average person just doesn't have the monetary means.

Do People Want Love or Options?

I don't always want to think about love and relationships, but it never seems to fully escape my mind considering that I maintain a blog that is about, well, love and relationships.  The more and more I think about the subject, I ask myself, do people actually want to fall in love and be in a relationship?

In the United States, when it comes to marriage the divorce rate is so high that nearly half all marriages will end in divorce.  Then, there are websites like Ashley Madison, which encourage married people to have affairs with the company tagline being "Life is short. Have an affair."
