Are one night stands more prevalent now? I'd have to say yes because of the anonymity and simplicity of the hook up. It's like a transaction rather than a date where two people move toward sex. With the hook-up it predetermined. I guess the whole thing with hooking-up is that it seems too easy.
The major difference between me and my sisters was that I had no inclination to marry at a young age. I was out having way too much fun exploring the world and all its offerings. I finally married at one month shy of age 35 and had my one and only child at age 38.
For me the definition of gaslighting makes me think of politicians, door-to-door salesmen, and leaders of Ponzi schemes. All, to me, can be a bit slimy, manipulative, selfish, and protective of only their best interests.
