My generation yearns for a love like our parents

I first heard about Shhh Dating in an article in the Daily Mail, and within hours of the story going to press, blog readers were contacting me to ask me to go along to the next night and review it. The event ended up being cancelled, however in the run up we both commented that we thought the event would probably attract a lot of unattractive people, benefitting from the lack of preconceptions in the dark! By contrast, an event which focusses on nothing you say, and simply on non-verbal communication, could arguably be a very superficial form of dating. Extremely attractive men can undo their good looks with an unbecoming personality or as one article I read pointed out, simply with a funny-sounding voice! Are you basing your attraction purely on how they look, or on how they respond to the odd dating surroundings? As I had the farthest commute in to the George Pub, on The Strand, where the event was to be hosted, the others gathered for a confidence-boosting drink beforehand. Not realising they were still sitting drinking downstairs, I bustled in to the event, fifteen minutes late and soaking wet from the traditional London rain, which has returned this week. Another fifteen minutes passed, and still none of the others had shown up. Cue a stream of expletive group text messages from me, accusing them all of leaving me to fend for myself!

Three years ago, my parents held a dinner to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary and my older brother, who was about to marry his high-school sweetheart, asked the secret to their success. At the time, I was 24 and like many of my generation had been in and out of unsuccessful relationships for years. It dawned on me, that evening, that what I wanted was exactly what my parents have. Author Abbie Greaves said at her parents 30th wedding anniversary three years ago, it dawned on her that she wanted exactly what her parents had.

Dad has a remarkable talent for speaking in his own proverbs. That night, as I lay scrunched in my childhood single bed, I wondered if this was where I was going wrong. I had always assumed the desire for commitment would someday miraculously materialise without me having to think about it. And that my difficulties in sustaining a relationship can be traced back to dating apps which let me select my next fling with less effort than it takes to order a pizza.

Of course, not everyone is even looking for their monogamous happily-ever-after. Evergreen fidelity ballads by Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi dominate the music charts. And I was learning that first-hand.
