The dating culture has evolved and changed over the years. From a dependable social system of stages which may involve “hooking up,” that would progress into courting, until it reaches compliance of “going steady”, to “exclusively dating” and officially turning into a couple. Things have been changing though, relationships are now becoming more and more ambiguous as years go by, and yet the fact of the matter is; that today’s dating culture is rapidly turning into a “hook-up” culture, leaving couples in a “no label” zone.
Commitment seems to have become pretty much of a nuisance; that is more or less dreaded by many of today’s generation bringing about the popularity of casual laid-back dating without labels, that may pertain to some sort of exclusivity. It does seem quite simple and appealing, a “no strings attached” scenario, with little to no responsibilities and no over-the-top relationship cheesiness, it’s like getting the perks of a relationship without actually having to be in one. Realistically though, “label-less relationships” come with a lot more baggage than what is expected, which people have eventually turned out to realize. It’s those moments when you like someone and want to be with that certain person, yet confusion looms and could jeopardize the status of a future or existing relationship.
