现代约会的悲剧真相

18 Ugly Truths About Modern Dating That You Have To Deal With

1. 谁喜欢对方少一点谁就掌握主动。谁也不愿意做那个更喜欢对方的人。

2. 我们都想让对方认为我们其实没那么在乎他,于是就都在玩“故意过好几天才回短信”的游戏,其实一点都不好玩。

3. 一个因为对你没兴趣所以表现得完全不在乎的人,和一个对你很有兴趣但不想让你认为他对你很有兴趣因此故意表现得完全不在乎的人,看起来是一样的。傻傻分不清楚。

4. 打电话这事儿已经快要灭绝了。你的感情中很大一部分都是用短消息来维系的。好好学习颜文字。

5. 没法提前订计划。如果对方不把你放在优先的位置,很可能你的邀请得到的答复是“可能吧”、“我到时候告诉你”。最终的答案取决于对方有没有收到比你更有意思的邀请。

6. 伤害了你的人很可能不会得到报应。至少最近不会。我知道这看起来不公平,可是很多时候劈腿背叛的人会开开心心地开始下一段,而被甩的那个人却活得很悲摧。

7. 你的行为是“浪漫”还是“变态”的唯一标准就是,对方对你有没有意思。

8. 有的人只想上床。如果你想要的不仅是OOXX,那么对方会在上了你之后再告诉你你找错人了。

9. 你发过去的短信他收到了。如果对方没有回复,绝对不是因为短信系统出了问题。

10. 社交网络给劈腿创造了更多的诱惑和机会。发私信或者赞对方的照片并不代表着出轨,但绝对增加了出轨的几率。

11. 社交网络还给了人们“我有很多选择”的幻觉。人们会把 Facebook 之类的网站看作一份帅哥美女目录,而不是用它来和朋友联系。

12. 只有你和一个人真正确定了恋爱关系之后,才能看见真实的没有加滤镜的对方。

13. 任何一个和你在一起的人,你们之间只有两种结局,要么永远在一起,要么某一天会分开。这两种未来都同样可怕啊。

14. 和一个人约会的时候,他不会直接告诉你他的想法,而是会发一条微博/人人网状态/Instagram照片,上面是一幅日出的图片,附上几句歌词。他不会提到你的名字,但那就是写给你看的。

15. 你恋爱的时候,总会有人无视你们的恋爱关系。如果他们想要你的对象,就会毫不顾忌地上来抢。

16. 如果你被甩了,那一定会来得很悲摧。人们会通过电话来分手,免得看见你流眼泪。或者干脆一条短信,连听见你吸鼻子的声音都免了。

1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.

2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.

3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.

4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.

5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other potential romantic interests) whereabouts thanks to texts & social media. If you aren’t the top priority, your invitation to spend time will be given a “Maybe” or “I’ll let you know” and the deciding factor(s) will be if that person has offers more fun/interesting than you on the table.

6. Someone who hurt you isn’t automatically going to have bad karma. At least not in the immediate future. I know it only seems fair, but sometimes people cheat and betray and move on happily while the person they left is in shambles.

7. The only difference between your actions being romantic and creepy is how attractive the other person finds you. That’s it, that’s all.

8. “Let’s chill” & “Wanna hang out?” are vague phrases that likely mean “let’s hookup” — and while you probably hate receiving them, they’re the common way to invite someone to spend time these days, and appear to be here to stay.

9. Some people just want to hookup and if you’re seeking more than sex, they won’t tell you that they’re the wrong person for you. At least, not until after they score your prize. While human decency is ideal, honesty isn’t mandatory.

10. The text message you sent went through. If they didn’t respond, it wasn’t because of malfunctioning phone carrier services.

11. So many people are scared of commitment and being official that they’ll remain in a label-free relationship, which blurs lines and only works until it doesn’t. I’ve said it many times before, I’ll say it again – “we’re just talking” is opening the door for cheating that technically wasn’t cheating because, hey, you weren’t together together.

12. Social media creates new temptations and opportunities to cheat. The private messaging and options for subtle flirtation (e.g. liking of pictures) aren’t an excuse or validation for cheating, but they certainly increase the chances of it happening.

13. Social media can also create the illusion of having options, which leads to people looking at Facebook as an attractive people menu instead of a means of keeping contact with friends & family.

14. You aren’t likely to see much of someone’s genuine, unfiltered self until you’re in an actual relationship with him or her. Generally people are scared that sincerely putting themselves out there will result in finding out that they’re too available, too anxious, too nerdy, too nice, too safe, too boring, not funny enough, not pretty enough, not some other person enough to be embraced.

15. Any person you get romantically involved with you’ll either wind up staying with forever or breaking up with them at some point. These are equally terrifying concepts.

16. When dating, instead of expressing how they feel directly to you, a person is more likely to post a Facebook status or Instagram a Tumblr-esque photo of a sunset with a quote or song lyric of someone else’s words on it, and while it may not mention your name, it’s blatantly directed at you.

17. There are plenty of people who’ll have zero respect for your relationship and if they want the person you’re with, they’ll have no qualms with trying to overstep boundaries to get to ‘em. Girl code and guy code are wishful thinking and human code isn’t embedded in everyone.

18. If you get dumped, it’s probably going to be pretty brutal. People can cut ties over the phone and avoid seeing the tears stream down your face or end things via text and avoid hearing the pain in your cracking voice and sniffling nose. Send a lengthy text and voilà, relationship over. The easy way out is far from the most considerate.
