Frustrated, lonely, and disappointed, my clients and many male friends, family and strangers ask, why is dating so hard for guys? First, I like to remind everyone that dating is difficult for everyone these days. Women have just as many complaints. Some of the complaints overlap, but there are certainly difficulties that are unique to both sexes.
This article is going to focus on why dating is so difficult for guys, as I examine the challenges that uniquely impact men. The solution to any challenging issue is to see the obstacle clearly, take responsibility, and change what you can that is within your control this is Stoicism If you just want to whine, complain, or blame without taking any personal action, then you are in the wrong place.
I want to start out by saying that yes, dating is objectively hard for guys right now, and is harder than in the past. Online dating seems like a video game. If you can get through 8 levels of Super Mario Brothers, then you can certainly make online dating work! Online dating is more like a slot machine. While online dating sucks for women, it really, really sucks for guys.
Here are a few crazy stats. Depressed yet? Well, yes and no. The Western world today is more Dating hard work than ever. Many men only have a couple of friends, but 11 percent of single men have zero friends. Yet, how do people meet romantic partners? By far. One study showed that 39 percent of couples met through friendsalthough this is going down.
Well it involves randomly approaching women, whether at bars or even the grocery. For those unaware, the MeToo movement is an anti-sexual assault and anti-sexual harassment campaign that focused especially on eradicating those behaviors in the workplace. One positive aspect of the movement is that it has drawn attention to toxic workplace behaviors of some men.
The MeToo movement has made many men reluctant to engage women, even in an appropriate manner, in environments where they ly would have. Many couples in the past met in the workplace one study says 15 percent. In the current climate, those s will certainly decline and both men and women will have lost another avenue to Dating hard work meet their life partner.
This will inevitably cause more men to rely Dating hard work online dating, which as I just mentioned, sucks. Guys think women are into them, when the women are not. Men also tend to overestimate their own attractiveness. Even what they might think are selling points e. Second, guys look at the behavior of women in their lives like smiling, laughing, and even talking to them as a green light for a date.
However, if you were flooded with employers calling you daily, not only would you not send out a bunch of s, but you would sit back, take your time and pick the best. Beautiful women have options. Check out the photo on the right, taken from a real Tinder by us… 25, likes on Tinder. Also refer back to the study I mentioned above where women can get hundreds of likes in a few hours. The least attractive man got zero messages over a four month period. The least attractive woman received eleven. The ugly and below average guys might not even have the chance to be rejected.
Well, kind of. The sexual economy works a lot like the actual economy: extreme inequality. As I mentioned earlier, in the age bracket, 28 percent of men are involuntarily celibate while only 18 percent of women reported this. Those s clearly show some men are monopolizing more than one woman, while other guys are getting nothing. Also, when you look at the data from the online dating app Hinge I also referenced earlier, the top 1 percent of men received 16 percent of female likes. In addition, the bottom 50 percent of men got 4. These stats are absolutely insane and blow any notion of equality in dating out of the water.
To make this clearer, based roughly on the data above, imagine going to a party with single men and single women. In the room, one guy has 16 women talking to him, 9 other guys are talking to 36 women, and you have 50 guys standing around with 4 women showing interest in them. The point here is that there are a lot of guys out there competing for the attention of women.
And, most of them are getting lost in the noise. Even if you are an amazing, attractive guy for real, not perceivedshe might not even see your message because of all the losers crowding her inbox! Women typically date men who are higher in social, educational, and financial status. They also are generally attracted to men who are assertive, muscular, dominant, and ambitious.
At the very least, men with these traits end up dating a lot of women, largely because men with these traits are bold and take risks. For example, more young men live with their parents than young women do. Men are less educated than womenand rates of obesity among men are skyrocketing. All of Dating hard work factors mean that among men, testosterone levels are at all time lows. Men with higher testosterone are more likely to have the traits that women find attractive. While this means higher T guys will clean up in the dating world, it also means that dating is more challenging for the average guy this also explains why more men are sexless than in the past.
I was sitting at a restaurant a few days ago and this something-ish guy was going off about some topic. He sounded whiny, took life way too seriously, and came across like a middle-schooler in almost every way. Also, I should add, that not only have the of people on the autism spectrum increased in recent years, but more men than women are on the spectrumwhich means a greater percentage of men especially young men will struggle with the mental and emotional processing necessary to make romantic connections. I know this sounds like bad news, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
You can choose one of two paths: you quit and then bitch about it, or you rise to the occasion in each of those cases. Any guy can improve himself in a multitude of ways. Most aspects of your life can be transformed to be the man a woman craves and desires. This can include losing weight and getting in shape muscularity is very importantdeveloping a more assertive personality, changing your body languagelearning to flirt, projecting and getting power and more!
For many guys it may mean practicing and developing various social skills that men in the past found came more naturally. Remember no one is owed a date. If you truly want to date the women of your dreams, become the man who is worthy of their time and attention. Will it involve hard work? But, how badly do you want it? And, the traits that help you become more attractive charisma, boldness, dressing better, etc will ALWAYS spill over into success in other areas, including your career. We wrote two books that can help guys Dating hard work women, if you are reading this because your brother, son, etc, is struggling, buy him a copy!
But be warned: these are books for guys who WANT to rise to the occasion and do something. One is Be Popular Nowwhich is a general overview of social skills, charm, charisma, and dating skills for men. We know that a lot of shorter guys feel stuck and at a huge dating disadvantage in modern society, and this impacts their self esteem negatively. He's helped millions through his articles, speaking engagements, and coaching. If your life is hard, you need to stop dating. Best decision I ever made was to eliminate women from my life.
Goodbye to drama forever! Freedom feels so great! I was with two different women for over 3 years. And those are just the two that lasted. I have given up dating and relationships. I think this is something that sociologists and relationship counselors overlook entirely.
Privacy is something the modern psyche almost Dating hard work to keep sane. Well I would argue that women are held to the same personality standards when looking for a real relationship. However, less work is expected of them when it comes to meeting and dating. This is because the man is still generally expected to make the first move. A beautiful woman will always have many men after them for lust.
But it becomes more difficult when a woman is looking for a man who actually cares about their personality. This idea goes both ways and applies to men too of course. I find a lot of the things that people my age do when dating to be totally immature. People should be able to just talk to each other if they have a problem. Just as there are real men in this world, there are real women. That part is a two way street if you ask me.
Women simply have more opportunities knocking on their door all the time. For men, there are two options: 1 — Make opportunities or 2 — Be alone forever. To tell you how bad dating is an understatement. Women today have too many very high standards when it comes to men. Grow very old all alone with your cats ladies.
I met a guy who is average I guess he is divorced and had 2 girls just lost his job. Which we had in spades. I think that often times a woman could give less outgoing men the benefit of the doubt sometimes in interactions. Not for the sake of the man, but for their own sake. I would argue that many decent guys get judged quickly and are passed over by women without even getting a real chance at conversation. I hold no malice and am trying to be as objective as possible in my statement here. I just wish less people played games and more people actually communicated with each other.
Funny how very easy it was finding love in the past just like our family members did, since most women back then were the very complete opposite of today. And real ladies with good manners and a much better personality that they had in those days. Today they just want the very best of all, and will never settle for less because of their greed and selfishness that is everywhere now unfortunately. I think it serves for both men and women. Life is busy enough to keep anyone busy. Dating hard work lot of the men I have met are not even decent.
Who are you to say men who live with their mother and have no job are not decent? However, I have multiple degrees—including a law degree—under my belt, as well as debt paid off and a very decent starting salary as an economic policy analyst. My self-esteem is low, but others generally consider me handsome and at least mildly attractive. Sexual inflation and transhumanist that want population control s all i have to say you figure out the rest.
Too often they bring nothing to the table kids, debt, poor credit. What do you have to loose?! Ha what a joke that is. Most women are on welfare with a bunch of kids by different fathers and have to live section 8 because of debt and bad credit. This point goes both ways.
All the standoffish gestures and deceitful games that women play do not help them to attract mature men if you ask me. The world would be a better place if people were more direct with each other. They only want what you can provide them. A lot of women these days unfortunately now have their very high unrealistic expectations and standards, unlike the past they really never had that at all.Dating hard work
