The end of young love: Dating is in decline among the "i-Generation", study finds

Those born between 1995 and 2012, dubbed the “i-Generation”, are noticeably less interested in romance than their millennial predecessors, according to a new book by Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University.

Teenagers from this group have grown up with social media and smart phones, meaning they spend far more time socialising with one another online than they do in person.

The decline in dating corresponds to dwindling sexual activity among this cohort, Prof Twenge has found.

Drawing on surveys of 11 million young people and a series of in-depth interviews she found that teenagers in their final year of school are going out less often than 13-year-olds did as recently as 2009. ...

Hi Watcher, so right...how did I miss that soul stealer...pornography. This wickedness has evolved as well into things so dark that it gives me a sick feeling even thinking about it.

How sad, disgusting, tragic, whatever... pick your adjective.
Yes indeed it is a sad state of affairs. Now women are turning to Playboy and other sources of pornography. It truly is sickening and this drug is dragging many souls into hell.

Modern and American educational system is broken. Church systems that follow with age segregation etc are broken. Seminaries aren't any better, and follow the same form and structure. Education and upbringing in the Lord is the beginning to intelligent confident well adjusted children that do not follow the culture.

electronics is a lot of it. the job market and college debt another. if I had my way, high school would end at 16, by 8th grade they should be well trained, separated genders for seriousness in their studies. and then get the boys apprenticed in trades, rebuild american communities around these trades (Instead of mark of beast social security numbers and surveillance) so that a boy can dream. a young man who is independent can find a wife and make a path for them, as God intended.

instead we put them together in mindless schools until 18 and then its few jobs, few industry and years of college and debt.

and with the high level of transition and competition (and so many jobs going to foreigners or non citizens) -- they have to get advanced degrees to look good on paper.

then with high college debt and after 15 years of living in abject rebellion to nature itself (young people were meant to be married and have children), at the age of 30 they might get work or wait years for a good job.... putting off having children in their 30's

get rid of the nasty shots, encourage young marriages and bring jobs back!

our problems are a result of rebellion to God.

Liberalism and its criminal accomplice political correctness are destroying ALL authorities and natural traditions in the community. So its no surprise that the natural human tradition of relationships is also being expunged from the next generation.
Technology obviously plays a role in this as indicated in the article - BUT the modern mental process and attitude of this future generation has much more to say in their lifestyles.
The spiritual forces of darkness (Eph 6:12) seem to be gaining more power over these younger peoples than before in history. The human race is definitely changing in many ways for the worse.
End times 'signs'??

2Tim 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away....."

We stand in the middle of a society that has removed all references to gender and identity. No more can a boy fall in love with the girl of his dreams, for he knows not whether she/it is a girl. No more can a girl dream to have a man embrace her, love her and provide for her. That man has ceased to exist. He no longer stands up for truth and morality but has been emasculated and made into a shell of what manhood used to look like.

No wonder the world feels no need for dating or love for that matter. What is there to love anymore?

One other point to consider is pornography. There is no need to date, court or love anymore because there's so much to view on line that's perfect. No need for a relationship, commitment or sacrifice, as those whores (male and female) that expose themselves online don't need you or your love.

Right your are, Ivan. When I was in school growing up, all anyone had to worry about was pranksters stealing the school mascot, smoking a cigarette in the woods behind the school, and the occasional fight after school by the flagpole because someone was hitting on another's girl. Now, by 5yrs old, many kids see what many adults didn't see in a lifetime, women have been objectified, the kids have to emulate someone else and dress a part to fit in instead of just being themselves, kids are addicted to technology as toddlers because the parents don't wamt to spend that time with them, limiting their so oak interaction as they nature, and the sodomite agenda has many in an identity crisis.
Anyway, yes...the loss of innocence and the stealing of the childhoods that once were. Sad.

Christopher- I have been reminded frequently of how the loss of innocence is such a tragedy. We should guard it with all our strength. It is very much a blessing to young children and something our enemy so badly wants to take.

Seems the excitement of dating has been lost in time. Dreaming about your next date, wondering what your girl/guy is up to, wondering how much they like you, hearing the phone ring and hoping it's them, going to the drive in and holding hands was enough, going to the skating rink or just goofing around outside. Point is that those days were so much better.

YiA, hope you've been doing well.

Sorry, but for those born in 2012, they're five years old. Anyone would say these children aren't dating simply due to their tender age. Our child, born almost ten years earlier, isn't old enough to begin courting either. Grateful that out-of-wedlock sexual behavior was measured as declined, but the prominence of pornography in contemporary culture is likely driving toward virtual driven activity as well.
