I am so glad that I am no longer in the dating pool ๐ŸŠ because, for millennials, that pool is all too often stagnant ๐Ÿคข and filled with fuckboys.

๐Ÿ™… Even if you're just casually dating๐Ÿ‘ซ, it's a veritable hellscape.2

You say you want to find something with future ๐Ÿ”ฎ potential?

Girls, good luck!

No, but really, as hard as it is to wade through all the toads ๐Ÿธ masquerading as kings ๐Ÿ‘‘, you really can find your very own OTP, the one person ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป who makes all the bullshit worth it.

How?

Well, for starters, you need to overcome some of the dating ๐Ÿ‘ฌ struggles that most millennials are unfortunately facing in the dating ๐Ÿ‘ญ world.

Don't worry, though.

I got this. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

1. The Nerve-wracking ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Struggle of Decoding Her/his Texts ๐Ÿ“ฑ

Trying to analyze someone's texts is an exercise in angst and frustration.

๐Ÿ˜  You can't go by the tone, obviously.

Unless s/he uses emoji ๐Ÿ˜ or ALL CAPS, deciphering emphasis is also difficult.

Also, texting ๐Ÿ’ฌ is shorthand.

When a dude ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผ says, โ€œK, I'll check in with you later,โ€ there's no telling when โ€œlaterโ€ might be or what โ€œcheck inโ€ really means.

It's maddening!

Protip: Screenshot those texts, then study them obsessively with your most trusted friends.

2. Obsessing over when to do What

Part of what makes dating ๐Ÿ‘ฌ such a damn minefield is the fact that you practically can't do anything right when it comes to getting physical.

Like, if you don't kiss ๐Ÿ’ on the first or second date, you're called a prude, but if you have sex too soon, you're a slut.

What the hell?

How about this solution instead: do what feels right for yourself and the person ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿฝ you're with.

Don't worry about what anyone else is doing or saying.

The people ๐Ÿ—ฃ trying to police ๐Ÿ›‚ your sexuality are wrong, the end.
