So I noticed lately. A lot of guys I know or met seem to almost hate the idea of relationship with woman. It's more of "I want dtf and nothing more". I thought it was simply the older men who felt this way. But this trend seems to have reached the younger ones as well. Of course I don't have much evidence to support this. But anyone else notice a shift in how "relationships" work now?

Not really.
The ideal relationship is still based on mutual respect.
But marriages are now also about "love" and not just economics,

the perspective of a relationship has probably changed but how it works is certainly the same

I wouldn't know. Been single a good while xD. I'm not opposed to having a relationship with someone; I just haven''t found someone nor have I really been looking.

What's 'dtf' stand for? o.O

Honestly, its the probably around the same. Its just now more noticeable with social media and guys more willing to be honest about it since its more socially acceptable then it was in the past. You will always have a group of guys who look for relationships and other just looking for a good time. That will never change my friend.

Yeah, it's changed, now only monogamous relationships are recognized legally, whereas before men can have multiple wives.
Women used to do all the housework and looking after children. Women can never divorce a man.

Nowadays, people like to obnoxiously brag about how they're not into one night stands.

If you think men in history before this time were more faithful and romantic, you better think again. The word "bastard" didn't originate in the 21st century.

A woman used to need men for money. They do no longer, since they may acquire it themselves or through the state. Birth control pills and technological advancement has also made it where women are now able to splurge in sex outside of marriage as well.

Essentially--men have lost their incentives to get women to stay. The man, however, still needs a woman for her reproductive capabilities. On top of this, marriage has become obsolete (once an institution to hold men accountable to staying with their economically dependent spouse). This functional reasoning has waned, and so has the marriage institutions validity.

Sex, romance and money can now be found outside of marriage and pair bonding. It will not hold.

However, what can be found in successful marriages and pair bonds is not romance. It is respect. Two independent individuals stay together our of respect for each other. It is the foundation of trust, compromise, and loyalty. These individuals usually view each other as equals--willing do for another not out of attraction but out of that profound respect for one another. It has been the cornerstone of today's upholding long term relationships.
