Recently, I've really been thinking about the fact that dating and talking to one another has been revolutionized by social media and our smart devices.
Almost every weekend, it never fails, I'll get a 1 AM snap from a boy saying something along the lines of, "hey what's up want to hang?". While I know that their intentions might not always be bad, I began to realize that I'm worth way more than that.
What ever happened to calling a girl or texting her with intentional plans?
What ever happened to hanging out earlier than 9 PM at night?
After a series of texts and snapchats from this boy, I had to hit him with the boy, BYE.
We as girls have to stick together and realize that we are worth way more than a simple snapchat or quick, " u up?" text from that guy that can never seem to muster up the strength to ask you to hang out as a real man should.
Far too often, we have entertained late-night snapchats with no real intention of true, raw, human interaction.
Social media has created a world of lust and has forced us girls into the mindset that tells us that we're never going to be good enough for a boy to treat us like they really ought to.
Don't snapchat a girl and ask her what her plans are for the weekend.
Call her. Text her intentionally.
And girls, if a guy isn't willing to be intentional in the way that he plans things with you or checks up on you, tell em' boy, BYE. Just like I did.
We must come to the point when we realize we are worth more than a late night snapchat or text asking us what our plans are for the night.
We accept the love we think we deserve, so let's start setting the bar higher.
