Americans have been having a really bad rep of being lazy for ages. Allegedly, US citizens are lazy when it comes to physical activity, maintaining real-life social relationships, and sometimes even work.
However, the question of the day is: did the trendy laziness transcend into the sphere of romantic endeavors of average Americans?
Let’s find out.
In Just A Couple Of Clicks
According to numerous social studies that have been done over the course of the last few years, Americans are in fact getting less and less enthusiastic and energetic when it comes to romance.
Apparently the whole nation is so accustomed to having everything handed to them on a plate, while searching for true love and someone compatible can take quite a bit of effort, patience, and willpower, and Americans are simply not used to those circumstances.
With the overwhelming presence of the internet (whether it comes to social connections, shopping, or entertainment), Americans know and love the fact that they can get everything done online.
Online dating services of all types have become one of the most popular ways of finding someone suitable for a long-term relationship, marriage, or a random hookup. Whichever type of relationship you’re looking for – dating sites and apps indeed have just what you need.
This new age style of love and the search for it has, according to researches, made Americans even more less-enthusiastic about life in general. When you can get everything done in just with a few clicks, you’re naturally bound to develop a lower tolerance for things that demand more effort and time to be put into them.
True love, of course, is one of those things.
Nowadays, if the average American man or woman is set out to find someone who will either warm their heart or their bed (and luckily, both) they immediately turn to his royal majesty – the internet. Even though this love search also demands a great deal of time and effort into finding someone who is truly ideal for them, US citizens (accustomed to getting everything they want as soon as they want it) expect magnificent results in a matter of minutes.
When that doesn’t happen, the average American woman or man will probably abandon their search on that particular site or app of their choice and move on to the next one.
Persistency is needed when it comes to finding the ideal match for you, alas, that virtue is not common among the American nation, specifically the younger generations. Love is seen as just another thing to have in life, like a car, a job, and a home. These troubling findings have summed up the nation’s attitude towards love, and unfortunately, things are only going to get worse.
“Love laziness” seems to be a real thing among the American nation, although no man or woman would ever actually confess of this modern-day sin. Everyone will admit to doing illegal stuff, but no one will admit to not having the will of finding (and keeping) love.
20-Somethings And 30-Somethings
The generation which consists of people ranging from 20 to 30 years of age is (allegedly) the laziest generation in the bunch.
However, this phenomenon has a lot to do with the fact that those are the years when an average individual is set on building a career and being successful, and all that before “settling down.” Workaholics usually don’t have the time for taking care of long-lasting relationships, so they turn to casual flings and short-lasting dating experiences.
And there’s no better place to find those than the internet.
In conclusion, online dating may have made Americans lazy even in the spheres of love, but it wasn’t the only factor which contributed to this phenomenon.
