People who have been born and brought up in the late 80s and early 90s definitely realize how love has changed over the span of two decades. What once used to be a ‘lifetime experience’, now stands as a ‘routine affair’ for the present generation. Here are 15 ways how relationships now are quite different from the 90’s/ 80’s.

  1. Love has become bold
    In the 1990s, you could see people blushing and shying away when it came to discussing about their love story. However, today couples are open towards revealing their status.

  2. Love is in Hookah Bar
    Earlier couples used to select places like gardens, temples and river banks to meet their boyfriend/girlfriend. Today love is best discussed with dense smoke from Shisha.

  1. It’s more of text than words
    Love letters were a great way to share feelings. But then couples would talk as well. Today it’s more about continuous texting. Thank you Whatsapp, Viber, Snapchat!

  2. Live-in relationship
    Couples nowadays find it feasible to live under the same roof. Back in the 1990s, this scenario was considered as a perversion.

  3. Couples call each-other with weird names
    In the 1990s, it was Jaanu, Shona and Jaan! By 2015, it has become Kuchi Koo, Bunny, Sweetu and even Chumma (Trust me, I have heard this).

  4. Break up is Celebrated
    Back in those days, break-up was mourned with Kumar Sanu’s ‘Dil Cheer Ke Dekh‘. Today, it is more like ‘Aaj Maine Break up ki Party Rakh Li Hai‘.

  5. PDA matters
    The rule of Love in 2015 states that if your PDA (Public Display of Affection) is not good enough, then you are not serious with her! What people used to do in bedroom, now happens on the bus, near the metro station and sometimes, even outside an Old Age Home!

  6. Expensive Gifts is the Love-Meter
    Because buying ‘Gajra’ and roses were becoming too mainstream, iPhone, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc., is the new way to express love.

  1. Love Aaj-Kal
    The duration of the love story in the modern generation is exactly similar to the name of a movie. It is only a matter of months before which a couple decides to split up and ‘move on’.

  2. Lovers are the new Picasso
    There are plenty of ways to say ‘I Love You’. Sadly, the new generation finds the best way to do it by using spray paints. Walls are often filled up with messages and ‘love-arts’.

  3. Blind Dating
    Just like true love never dies, a blind date never hides!

  4. Morning people to Night Owls
    Earlier, couple used to wake up at 4am and prayed for the well-being of their significant other. Nowadays, couples no more wake up at 4am; in fact, that’s the time when they go off to sleep. Thanks to mobile phones, couples can now talk through the night with red bloodshot eyes in the morning.

  5. Moving on is the new cool thing
    The new generation has learnt to handle heart wrenching breakups and therefore, has a special talent of moving on with other things in life.

  6. Meeting daily is not a big deal
    People who grew up in the 1990s will understand the importance of meeting a lover under various restrictions. No Skype, no Facebook, no Whatsapp and no mobile phones. All that mattered was the promise!
    14
  7. Maine Pyar Kiya’ to ‘Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya’
    Couples in the 80s used to survive under critical circumstances to tie the knot with their beloved. With the road to love-marriage getting easier with time, the love story of the couple goes beyond marriage. At the end of every love story has these lines- ‘Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya!?’ No more ‘Happys Endings’!
