Asher, who hosts and produces a storytelling group in New York, has been dating online for seven years.
Recently, he met a girl on the app Bumble, and the two began to casually date.
At first, she welcomed the emotional vulnerability between the two of them.
They got close quickly, but after a couple months she began to push him away, until she ghosted him completely.
Our entire approach to adulthood has shifted, in fact, from where we choose to live, to how long we stay in school.
The Millennial's economic situation is now firmly linked to how we approach relationships.
The media, too, has trouble deciphering what exactly our motivations in life are: Do we move in with our parents because we're lazy and co-dependent or because we're perpetually broke?
Are we having nonstop kinky sex with one-night stands or remaining celibate into adulthood?
But perhaps we're so misunderstood by society-at-large because even Millennials themselves haven't quite decided what we want.
Despite that confusion, the caricature of the commitment-phobic, sex-starved, Tinder-obsessed, strictly-a-casual-dater Millennial had to come from somewhere, and the Internet is probably to blame: Most Millennials project an outgoing version of ourselves on social media that we're too cautious to actually live out in reality. With that camaraderie comes a lessening of the shame that the generations before ours felt about sex.
