Millennials have a lot of things to complain about when it comes to their financial circumstances. Crushing student loan debt, the rising cost of living and the lack of well-paying jobs have made millennials into the most broke generation in contemporary history.
But new research showing that almost a third of millennials think dating is too expensive reveals Generation Me isn’t just short on money — but commitment.
Match.com’s Singles in America survey found that about 30 percent of adults between the ages of 22 to 37 feel their financial instability is hampering their dating game. And 21 percent of the millennials think they don’t even deserve love until they’ve reached a certain level of income, according to the study, which analyzed the dating habits of more than 5,000 US adults.
Match.com also found that 22% of singles say a potential partner’s financial situation has held them back from pursuing a relationship with them,
The research showed that the majority (20.4 percent) of millennials have a household income that's just $15,000-$29,999.
Another 18.8 percent earn between $30,000-$44,999, while 16.4 percent earn less than $15,000 per year.
This information follows a separate study, also by Match.com, which said that the average single American spends about $60 per month on dating - but, unfortunately, it's still men who fork-out most of the costs.

Fifty-one percent of men spend more than $100 a month on dates, while 29 percent spend more than $150 a month.
The average spend on Valentine’s Day is $103.
In contrast, 66 percent of women spend less than $50 a month on dates, while their average amount spent on Valentine’s Day is just $51.
The new research also found that the #MeToo movement has caused more than half of all men to act differently with women - being more reserved and distant.
It's not all bad news, though. Fifty-nine percent of participants admitted to falling in love with someone they didn" alt="调查：三成美国年轻人因没钱约会而单身">

As we spend more and more of our lives online, inevitably we discover ourselves flirting with people we have never met in real life - you might even call it having a crush.
There’s something about the dynamism of social media that feels both more truthful and more mysterious. You have lots of intimate knowledge of a person but you can’t see them.
When we would eventually meet, sometimes it was pure magic, one of these rare times in a life when everything finally seemed to fit together and I felt I'd met my other half. Other times it was… well, less magic, because the spark in the person didn" alt="当代青年网恋观察：奔现就像买彩票？">
人生三大错觉：老师在门口、手机在振动、他/她喜欢我。 你有过上面哪种错觉呢？ 即时社交软件让以往现实恋爱与网恋的界限变得模糊。 有时候，昨天加的那个人，今天就奔了现。 还有时候是反过来：现实中处得不错，放一个暑假，就成了网恋。 As we spend more and more of our lives online, inevitably we discover ourselves flirting with people we have never met in real life - y...

What do you look for in a partner? It seems like an easy question, but if you're asked to break down what it is that attracts you to someone else, you might struggle to put your finger on it.
Dr. Tanja Gerlach, from the University of Göttingen, said: “the survey is unique in that women from all over the world—across various sexual orientations and life phases—gave us rich insight into what matters most to them. This allows us to draw a very differentiated picture of women" alt="女性择偶时最看重的到底是什么？排在第一位的是……">
从分手理由就可以看出人们在乎什么。 ❶ Ta性格太差劲了，我说什么Ta都跟我杠，拒绝沟通，不分手留着过年？ ❷谈之前不知道，相处起来才发现智力上有鸿沟，考虑问题不在一个层面…… ❸可能是收入有差别吧，我俩消费观念相差太大…… 但处对象可能又和找对象不是一回事。找的时候看脸，处起来又看性格。似乎，这是一个综合决策过程。 What do you look for in a partner? It seems like an easy question, but if you're asked to br...

Starting a new book is a risk, just like falling in love. You have to commit to it. You open the pages knowing a little bit about it maybe, from the back or from a blurb on the front. But who knows, right? Those bits and pieces aren't always right. 读一本新书恰似坠入爱河...
Why to ask so much when you are in love? The mature never ask the past, the wise never ask the present and the open-minded never ask the future. 爱，又何必多问？成熟的人不问过去，聪明的人不问现在，豁达的人不问未来。 The key for happiness is not to find a perfect person, but find someone...
