If there’s one trend we can really vouch for, it will be this one: Honesty Bombing.
After all, isn’t time something we’ve wasted enough of? *Insert your own idea of wasted time here*
And so, for some daters there’s a sense that it’s now more important than ever to be upfront about what they want from a relationship to avoid any mixed messages that could lead to disappointment further down the road.
This dating trend has been coined ‘honesty bombing.’
Nowadays, free people who date, tend to lay the foundations for the future of their relationships. People who are not looking for long-lasting relationships are open about it, to make sure they are not taking up other people’s time.
A big scale research that took place in April 2021 shows significant qualitative alterations in human interaction after the last two years filled with quarantine.
More than 1000 people, aged 18-45, took part in the research, their main goal being finding a partner. The key to change was linked to new, clear, positive goals set by the people themselves, about companionship quality. Specifically, 72% reported being more honest in what they seek in a relationship, while 69% does not want to play games or engage in manipulation. Finally, 82% are ready to speak openly and clearly about everything, including their opinion about marriage, family, health issues and their expectations regarding their partners. This practice gave birth to the new term “Honesty Bombing”.
People don’t want to spend their valuable time on this earth needlessly playing games. According to the same research, in the post-quarantine era, the relationship horizon is clearer and more clearly defined than the pre-coronavirus era.
So in fact, Covid was good for something. So basically “Honesty Bombing” is the new trend based on not sugarcoating your personality, therefore preventing disenchantment, as what you see is what you get.
It helps you save time, ultimately allowing for honest relationships and a partner that you desire, and who desires you for who you are.
