Lost Generation

We're living in a society where 13 and 14 year old girls dream of a relationship even remotely close to 'Fifty Shades of Grey' but can't even tolerate the cramps coming from the heavy flow of their monthly red room of pain. So excuse me when I shake my head at what this generation has become but please don't generalize us because I stand alone in a high school with 3,500 kids, and every other boy can't even tell me what monogamy is, and every two guy says what kind of girl that they want yet go for the complete opposite with hopes that he can change her, as his dream girl does the exact same thing. In the end we are all looking for someone who is gonna test us.... test us....test us....ARE YOU GONNA TEST US?! Like learning something new in the beginning of the grading period, we raise our hands, on our first date we just wanna know, are you gonna test us cause these days everything we need to know about each other are in our Instagram bios. So tell me face to face if you're gonna test me cause I'm trying to find you in this lost generation.
