She liked him. He was the kind of guy who could make women fall for him, you know. His deep hazel eyes would look straight into her soul, his mysterious smile would make her go crazy, his words would make her laugh like she had never laughed before, and his oh-so-husky voice, it would cast a magic spell on her. He would bring out the best in her. But was this love? Yes. No. Maybe? No. She said she only 'kinda' liked him. Liked him enough to date him, but not to be with him. Enough to enjoy his company, but not enough to have it all the time. If you are part of the millennial generation, chances are that you've been in her shoes. This new twisted and slightly selfish concept of love seems to be catching up with our generation these days. He is great, but, you know, he can't be THE one. She is nice and friendly, but I don't see a future. He is great with my friends, but I don't think my parents would like him. She is smart, but I wish she was a little less possessive.

Why are we so flawed by the idea of love: the one that is shown in the movies, the one people sing about, the one with the ideal person, ideal relationship and ideal everything? We believe in happily-ever-afters, but hardly want to take the effort that goes into the making of a relationship.
We live in the world of fast food, and even faster home deliveries. We want it easy and we want it quick. Besides, we want to try new things - new clothes, new activities, new people. We get cheap thrills by doing so. Nothing holds our interest for too long because we believe that old is boring.
