There are obvious reasons as to why this is, and often we cannot be blamed.
Everything was a bit more straightforward – predictable, maybe. Generation-Y doesn't have it easy when it comes to dating and relationships.
Although, this isn't to say that we couldn't ease up in areas where we should ease up.
The rules of the game have shifted in favour of the women decisively so much so that some men have completely given up on dating, and instead finding succour in video games or apps like Secret and Tinder.
Here are a few reasons why dating is a woman's game and why that's not such a great thing after all.
With Valentine's Day coming up, now is a good time to finally let the cat of the bag.

Here are 8 problems that previous generations didn't have with dating that we managed to create for ourselves. One-night stands were nowhere near as common as they are now. Sure, we may sleep with the same person for a few months before we switch, and call it dating, but the truth is that we date to have sex.
That isn't to say that they never happened – but not nearly as regularly as they do amongst our generation. Much of the time we skip the whole dating thing and go straight for the goal. Sure, you're not just having sex, you're hanging out as well. You're clearly not just a booty-call, but are you together? Apparently there is now a difference – exclusivity isn't always promised. Well, I do know why, but it's so incredibly silly that I find it revolting that it has even invaded my own life.
They grant total confidence to a human being who is learning to settle down a conduct criterion; to a child who will assimilate that any behavior is possible because its family does not put limits to him.
