22 февраля 2023 г. в Центре имени Е.М.Примакова состоялась первая в этом семестре встреча нашего клуба!

На ней участники обсудили современные тенденции в отношениях, узнали особенности dating culture и ближе познакомились друг с другом благодаря карточкам с вопросами. Кроме того, все гости поделились своими представлениями об идеальном свидании!

Ниже мы прикрепляем полезную информацию для всех тех, кто не смог присутствовать в среду.

In 1957, 57 percent of those surveyed said that they believed that adults who preferred to be single were “immoral” or “neurotic.” But today, as Eric Klinenberg reminds us in his book, “Going Solo,” more than 50 percent of adults are single. The trend is pretty clear.
Fifty years ago, America was groupy. People were more likely to be involved in stable, dense and obligatory relationships. They were more defined by permanent social roles: mother, father, wife. Today, individuals have more freedom.
They move from network to network, depending on their individual needs at the moment. At the same time, bonds are probably shallower and more thin.

Hookup culture is one that accepts and encourages relationships without necessarily including emotional intimacy.

Open marriage is a form of non-monogamy in which the partners of a dyadic marriage agree that each may engage in extramarital relationships.

American dating practices are similar to those of other English-speaking western cultures. It is common for couples to meet though their social circles, workplaces or hobbies. Online dating services are popular amongst several age groups. Younger people may use free apps for casual dating, whilst middle-aged adults or elderly people looking to find serious or long-term partners tend to prefer dating websites that require paid membership.

Ждем вас на следующей встрече!

With love, EnglishClub.
