Relationships in Our 20s
From all the adrenaline rush and the hormones kicking in every 20 minutes that define our teenaged life, Relationships take a very different turn when we hit the 20s. It’s not like our desire to date or have stopped adoring Relationships, but the priorities change massively and it’s a totally different ball game altogether. With a career on one hand and everything on the other, 20s is the time when most of us begin to have a very clear idea about Relationships and what we expect out of our partners.
1Casual s*x doesn’t seem cool anymore
It may be a fun thing even in the early 20s, but as we grow older and wiser (hopefully), s*x stops defining most of the prerogatives in Relationships. From it being a drunken craziness, we now want it to mean something and not just focus on our physical needs.
2Lone Time is Very Important
From being crazy teenagers who were madly in “love” who are totally obsessed we now know that it’s a different world in the 20s. It’s not like the phone bills don’t go up now, but we also know how important freedom and a sense of spending time with oneself is important in Relationships.
3Declaring Stuff on Social Media is a BAD Move
Everyone’s doing that around us and we have seen the terrible repercussions. Most of us know by the time we hit our late 20s that relationships and social media should not be meddled together.
4Privacy is so important
You absolute detest it when people asking too many personal question about your relationship. Even if you do share with people, you will always keep a certain amount of your privacy intact. You definitely don’t want your personal life to be discussed in public.
5You are more Realistic now
You have got over the whole ‘filmy’ kind of feeling you imagined love to be. You now know that love has its pros and cons as well and you understand it.
6Casual Relationships are not exciting now
You are looking for stability now. You don’t want something that will keep you hanging in the air or a guy/girl who isn’t serious about you. 20s really change us, no?
7Honesty Matters the Most
You are now no more interested in tolerating things and not voicing your opinions. Honesty works way better than silence and you follow that to the core.
8Breakups Hurt but You Know How to Recover
The biggest drawback of Relationships is that they could end. It hurts too much. But the 20s teach you that it’s not the end of the world and you can get over it with time.
9He Doesn’t Need to Pay Always
This one’s for the women. When you start earning you realize how expensive things are. You don’t mind splitting the bill. Rather it makes you feel good about yourself!
10Compatibility Matter More than Looks
Gone are the days when you lost the heart the moment you saw a pretty face. You are now more interested in finding out what’s inside the package.
20s really change Relationships, don’t they?
