Laziness will certainly not help millennials end up with the person they desire most. If I was lazy when it came to courting my wife, there would be no way I'd have anything on my ring finger. Feminism Ever since feminism took off, people have fought for the equality and empowerment of women. I am not necessarily talking about radicals but merely about the emergence of power women have gained in today's society. Don't get me wrong, I am all for equality among the sexes. Yet, it has arrived to the point where women have made it more difficult for chivalry to To put it simply, this generation is lazy. Technology has y well. The art itor generation that relies on text messaging as a means to hookup. In a society where marriage is no longer the ultimate goal, chivahy may have lost its purpose. What would cause for such a shill in society? Laziness? Feminism? Expectations? The list could consist of an infinite amamt of reasons, but I just want to focus on these three. been the biggest contributor to laziness. It has brainwashed today's society, especially millennials, to expect instant gratification. The idea of holding everything you possibly could want in your hand deters the need of human interaction. An individual's relationships are maintained by instant messaging, tweeting, and posting pictures to Instagram. There is interno time for actions with others because the time is filled with limited 140 character messages. These types of mannerisms keep chivalry from thriving. Men resort to texting when asking a girl out or fail to take a few extra steps to open the door for their dates.

For some, it is no . . longer expected that men pay f for dinner or walk his damsel to the front door. The whole idea of "ladies first" has grown old to some. Heck, if I were a lady, I would be jumping all over that.

This idea can be flipped the other direction too where , , r f , ET' The biggest factor in this could be the women's need for independence and the ability to do everything on their own. They desire to use their liberty to refuse help from men. They can open their own doors, carry their own grocery bags, and pay for their own meal. Maybe to some women, when women no longer expect things from their men. By doing so, it may make things easier and a lot simpler, thus are critical thinking, effective HOURS communication, information literacy, quantitative reasoning, diversity and globalization, and last but not least, responsibilities of citizenship.
