This Twitter thread explains why dating can be so frustrating in 2016

Dating is becoming like a second job in 2016. A relationship requires great effort and a time investment, in the end you can still get burned before even sealing the deal. Some people are worth the risk and some aren't. But how do you know when the person is the right one and if they are worth your time? What are the signs to look for when it comes to determining whether someone is committed to getting to know you?

The process can be daunting as a millennial.

We all have met someone who seemed too good to be true. After all the "soul swiping", you finally get someone who seems to want what you want and is on the same page. It's going good for awhile and then out of nowhere things change and you start to live out the lyrics of a Drake song.

He outlines how it all goes and drops a few gems on us in the process.

Photo: tumblr By the time I got to the end of the thread, I wanted to pass around a collection plate and send him my offering via PayPal. This pretty much sums up what it is like to date in 2016. The games, the indecisiveness and the unwillingness to just admit that you're not ready. Not to bash my fellas because some women are just as indecisive. The universal idea here is that love is a decision. Everyone deserves someone who is ready and open to making the decision to love us. We deserve someone who if you had a twin, you would still get chose.
