Let’s talk about sex
Today we have a guest author from one of Cedo Nulli’s other committees: the Psychology Committee. They are organizing a symposium about sex and love.
We want a second glass of wine in our Instagrams of Friday nights, artsy pictures of another pair of hands next to ours, on the beach, pressed in the sand. We want a Facebook official relationship everyone can like and comment on, we want the social media post that wins #relationshipgoals. We want a date for Sunday morning brunches, someone to commiserate with during the drudge of Mondaze, a Taco Tuesday partner, someone to text us good morning on Wednesday. We want a plus one for all the weddings we keep getting invited to (How did they do it? How did they find their happily ever after?). But we are the generation who doesn’t want a relationship. We swipe left in hopes of finding the right person. We invest more time in our Tinder profiles than in our personalities. We want someone with ambitions, but also one who will always be there. We want to keep chasing the idea of love, but we don’t want to actually fall into it. We sit around with friends discussing the rules, but no one even knows the game we’re trying to play. Because the problem with our generation not wanting relationships is that, at the end of the day, we actually do.
After this little reflection, we should enhance the power of love. Love is one of deepest and most important emotions of the human beings. Love can be expressed in many different ways but most people look for romantic love, that special partner, that one that provides you a feeling of deep fulfillment. However, having the ability of forming stable, healthy and loving relationships is not easy at all. Since infancy, we develop abilities to form those great relationships that we all seek. The need of social contact, care or protection experienced with your family and environment influence your future relationships. Sometimes failure in relationships affects deeply and the reasons behind are just skills that we have to learn to dominate to make our relationships successful.
This is why the committee of Psychology organizes “Let´’s talk about sex, Symposium about Love” the 14th of February at the Erasmus University.
