people are love and respecting (now).
Join the movement.
I am a 34-year-old guy, and I haven’t felt a huge rush of teenage- or twenty-something emotion during the last few dates I’ve been on. My married friends said I shouldn’t use chemistry (or lackthereof) as a litmus test for what a relationship might be like in the future.
But the thing is, I remember watching these same friends act goofy when they were first entering a relationship with their (now) spouse. Is it wrong that I want the same experience? Will that excitement fade away with marriage?
For the married/dating folks: I’m so glad you want to counsel your unmarried friends who may have unrealistic expectations. However, as you counsel others, please remember that your story isn’t necessarily their story.
For Drew: Give those girls a chance and remind yourself that love that lasts will grow. However, as I said in my more extensive video on chemistry, sometimes it won’t grow, and there are reasons why. So give yourself a break if you’ve tried.
For Everyone: In marriage, feelings may wax and wane, but that doesn’t mean you made the wrong choice during the days where your attraction is less.
From my heart,
Joy and the Slothstronaut
