"What do we want when we go on a date – what is the other person supposed to bring to us? Can that really be given by one person alone? And what are we required to give – or give up – in response?" https://t.co/NXdFGO9HMe

It’s interesting how dating (“courting”) used to be explicitly transactional, but for a while — maybe 80 years or so — moved to a different model based on love and affinity, and is now back to explicitly transactional, at least among the top 20%.
This is a big change, even if it’s unrecognized. Because, most likely, no one wants to admit it’s back to transactional now.
