Dating is complicated for any generation, but millennials must contend with the double-edged sword of technology.
My last official relationship ended a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2013 (I just pulled up some old emails to confirm the date, and I’m definitely saving them for my memoir) and I’ve dated here and there in the years since without falling in love or meeting anyone who left a significant impact on my life.
There was the conservative preacher’s son I caught in a lie; the sensitive budding filmmaker who was kind and sweet, but ultimately not long-term relationship material; the social activist f---boy — the list goes on. I completely relate to the gray area Adam mentioned.

In our cases that’s fine, but I did start to think about how inclusive and welcoming an environment it could be. That was one of the first things we realized during the pre-event process: These events cast a wide net – even our age range was between 24 and 38 – and there is no telling what kind of group you’ll wind up at your event.I’ve tried the apps but, like Adam, have gotten mixed results. On one hand, I’d love the companionship or even a very consistent friend with benefits, but I’m also content in my singledom.I’m used to it, despite the societal pressure that comes with being unmarried and childless at 32.My straight, white, cis, male social profile is the most common there is, so I found many potential matches at the event, but those looking for a “less common” social profile might find some of these events frustrating in their scope of potential partners.The night of Adam: Without being sure what to expect, I was definitely nervous prior to the event.
