Intimate relationships and values

Every human being lives his life by values. To have a healthy intimate relationship with another human you need to have some sort of values that are close enough to coexist. And there layes the problem of our generation. A problem our parents generation didn’t had. We never ever in our western cultural history had so much choice. Choice to choose the values we want to live by. Because our generation has such a wide set of values to choose from, we end up with a lot of people with a wide range of values. And with great choice comes the anxiety of choosing the wrong values. So we constantly change our values because we think we may have chosen the wrong one. Because of that anxiety and constant values in flux it is difficult for us to find someone with close values to ours. Which makes it especially hard for our generation to make long lasting intimate relationships with another person.
