In this day and age of cellphones, Wi-Fi, social media and different forms of instant communication, you’d think we’d have all the answers to all our relationship questions. Unfortunately, millennials seem to be having a more difficult time finding someone to love or even getting a second date than the generation before them.
Fortunately, a Twitter hashtag was born to let us vent all our frustrations about love and dating and to make light of the fact that we’re all clueless human beings when it comes to relationships. Twitter users used the hashtag #DatingIsHardBecause to say the funniest, most on-point reasons why millennials can’t seem to find love.
