To take the risk of dating in today’s society is something less and less people are willing to go through. It’s unfortunate, but dating just isn’t the same as it used to be. Too often do couples get together for status and “fun” rather than love, resulting in multiple failed relationships even before the age of 21. The main reasons why relationships fail are loss of trust, poor communication, lack of respect, a difference in priorities, and little intimacy.
