Most young men (18-29) in today's society are lonely, friendless, single and go sexless, who is at fault on what's happening to young men?

I saw a CNN clip two days ago and in the interview a professor of marketing blamed, online porn, social media, dating sites where most men get ignored for the cause of what's happening to young men. Is he right in his analysis or just making excuses for young men? What are your personal thoughts? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11781425/More-60-men-20s-single-compared-just-30-women.html

  • That is an interesting clip and interesting statistics. I guess I can't say I'm too surprised but I always thought the reasons why women dated more men were different. While I was in my 20s I tended to date older men because they were usually the ones looking for a more serious and committed relationship. Most of the men my age were just looking for hookups and casual relationships. Not all mind you but it seemed to be a running theme.

    I also at one time worked as a survey interviewer for a university and there was sometimes bias that would creep into interviews and the way the questions were asked could sometimes introduce that bias. For instance, when I was young it was expected that women my age were dating and looking for a mate, even if that mate was older. It seemed as though young men were expected to be in school and not in serious relationships as much. That was my perception anyway, maybe it was different for others. So it's possible in these surveys that women answering the questions don't want to admit to being single. Heck, I didn't want to admit when I was single sometimes I still don't because of the idea that single women turn into crazy cat ladies, old maids, and spinsters. Now I realize that men get called incels but I hadn't even known about that term until gag, everyone has known about the crazy cat ladies, old maids, and spinsters long before gag.

    I do think it's become difficult for men and women to date the old-fashioned way and dating apps have complicated dating in a way that is most likely contributing to these statistics. However, just as I had to realize while I was in my 20s that being in a relationship didn't define me as an individual I think more young men may be realizing that they as well don't need to be defined by a relationship. With my job and online I've had the privilege to meet young men and women and even get to know them. It's sad if more men are feeling socially isolated but I also feel that maybe many of them are deciding they are okay with being single while they work on their goals. I have a male friend who is a former co-worker and he is 16 years young than me and he decided that while he goes to medical school to study to be a doctor that he should just focus on himself and his studies. I think that should be fine, I have another friend that is not sure what he wants to do with his life, so he is just chilling and doing his own thing to he figures it out.

    The guy in the clip mentions these men who are feeling isolated but maybe they shouldn't feel that way, maybe they need to look around and see that society is changing, I'm not saying that people shouldn't get married and have kids. They should if they want to, but I'm to sure everyone should or has to do that. He mentioned Japan and other places where the population is shrinking but what about China, that now has over a 2 million surplus of men, they will no doubt have to decide to remain single or leave China to find a mate.

  • That dingbat obviously didn't watch the video. The one guy in the video was right. The top guys on dating sites get almost all the women. That's the women's fault for being stupid. A guy who's a 10, contacts a woman who's a 4, and now the woman believes she's a 10. So why would a man who's a 10, contact a 4? Because the 4's are just backup for when all the hotter girls aren't available that night. So the 10's use the 4's for sex, and dump them. Then the 4's blame ALL men for being evil. They never blame themselves for being stupid.

    In my city, a hockey player screwed 180 women in one year on Tinder. The women will blame the hockey player, and not themselves for being idiots. So dating sites and dating apps have destroyed dating, because people rely on them. So people should avoid those sites and apps, but they won't. They'll just keep making the same mistakes over and over, until they're depressed and suicidal.

    Another problem with the Internet is that people have lost the art of social skills. They don't know how to communicate with others. My cousin told me that he went to a large family event, and none of the young people talked to each other. They don't know how. They can only communicate through social media. So all of these youngsters are sitting at picnic tables, and they're all on their phones.

    • Man I tell ya, you are one based woman!

    • @WhiteBoyChill It's just the way I see it. I know a woman who's been on the POF dating site for over 15 years, but she can't see why it's not working for her. She's about a 4, and gets used by 8-10's. She can't figure out why that doesn't work. It would be like putting me in an Apache, then I crash the helicopter, but just blame the helicopter. It's not my fault the stupid helicopter doesn't know how to fly. So if that woman had any brains, she'd focus on the guys that were 4-5's. She would have been married a long time ago. So either she's extremely stupid, or she likes being used by hot guys, but doesn't want it to be her fault.

    • Exactly right. Women chase after all the wrong men and then complain there’s no good ones around

  • Males have lost their sense of purpose, so there's no reason for them to put in the effort to make something of themselves in the traditional sense. Today's young men have grown up in a world that is hostiles to males and tells them they are bad and unnecessary.

    A society without strong men is doomed to fail. It's coming.

    • How is it young men losing their "purposes" has anything do with them and social media, online porn and women?

  • I don't think there's anyone who's necessary at fault, I just think society has changed dramatically to give women a substantial advantage over men, and that men must evolve to keep up with the changes. I know this probably won't be a popular opinion, but men have had it far too easy to get sex from women for decades, and the fact that so many men are now experiencing extreme, prolonged sexual frustration is a very positive development, in my opinion. This will make them work harder to please the female, which is, after all, a man's most important task to fulfill.

  • Good points brought up there. I don't blame society for helping girls and helping women. I still firmly believe that that was 100% the right thing to do. And I don't really blame women for feeling attracted to successful men. However, I would strongly encourage young women to face reality and accept reality and realize that they ARE now better off than men their own age, so they will have to adjust their mindset if they want to find true love.

  • Take down instagram, tinder and only fans and the problem is solved. Even the ugliest guys will be fucking loads of girls.

  • This is the fault of entitled women and a legal system weaponized against men.

    • So if young men doesn't have friends, is lonely and can't get sex is women's fault? I don't see how that makes logical sense.

    • Many young men make those choices out of fear and/or choosing the lesser of two evils. Is that hard to understand?

    • What fears is stopping young men from having friends, going on dates and having a girlfriend?

  • I mean nothing wrong with being single and sexless considering the women on today’s market.

    Should a guy really want a hoe that’s been used just under a thousand times?

  • And the Dynamics will still remain the same
