People Break Down Which Things Were Attractive 10 Years Ago That Are Lame Today

It's always interesting what ages well and what doesn't.

And, for that matter, how quickly something ages.

How often do we find ourselves sitting down to watch a film or TV show from only ten years ago to see how poorly it holds up?

Or, for that matter, how ten years ago we thought something would be the next big craze or trend, and instead see it become obsolete with each passing year.


Redditor jerydajery was curious to hear what things people were attracted or fascinated by a decade ago, but have little to no interest in today, leading them to ask:

"What was attractive 10 years ago but now isn't anymore?"

Blogging

"Honestly, I miss the blogging culture."

'Articles written with honesty and passion, mostly to connect with real-life friends first and online audiences second."

"Only the biggest bloggers could make a living off blogging."

"They were the original influencers."

"Easy to avoid though because there were just a handful of them, unlike the influencer culture of today."

"The one thing I love about blogging culture were the honest reviews."

'No advertisers to please, just regular folks writing their opinions on something they’ve used long term."

"Back then Google even had a specific search engine exclusively for blogs."

The world becomes a different place with each passing year.

One can only imagine things we can't get enough of today which we won't be able to bear the sight of in ten years.

Though, it's safe to assume one thing we wouldn't mind seeing less of are medical masks and mobile testing sights...

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor yourmaeve asked the online community,

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
