Sounds like over half of today's teenagers need to lower their standards.
 
2013-11-17 01:07:39 PM
Yeah, so? If you took a random group of people your age and lined them up against a wall, I bet you'd think that at least half of them aren't good enough for you.

Well, they ARE teenagers. Nobody want to put up with their shiat. Ain't nobody got time for that!

That guy that got shiat the other day for telling teenage girls to shut the hell up and don't overshare has his points.

Honestly, the internet and porn have a lot to do with it. Where as 20 years ago if you wanted to get your rocks off, you either had to get out there and socialize with women and actually work towards getting one, or be lucky enough to have a father with a stash of porn or have a friend or older brother who could get it for you. Now you can see any depraved act imaginable at the click of a button. Although I am married and not in that game anymore, I know how demoralizing rejection can be, and can understand how people might just eventually give up. The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.

Rising income inequality and perversely skewed labor values have priced hookers, strippers and other skanks out of reach of young men.  Even their concerned uncles and godfathers are hard pressed to pony up for the initial "breaking in".

Getting even to second base costs a lot more in flipped burgers than it used to.

Meanwhile the second baseman might make $10 million a season.

I love how on one hand it's OMG TEEN PREGNANCY and on the other it's "Teenagers aren't farking."

I thought we wanted less of that.
 
2013-11-17 04:52:43 PM
Wait - teenagers still date?

oldwolf49: I no gonna believe that.................


Why not?  None of my friends in high school nor I ever so much as grazed a boob.  In college I lived in a hall of 50 academically-strong guys.  As freshmen, virtually all were virgins, and you were in the minority but far from alone if you graduated college as an unintentional virgin.

And these were groups that didn't have many religious cases, either.  Add those in, and it doesn't seem improbable at all.  Also seems lucky that we don't have more shooting sprees.

I think alot of younger people are realizing "Don't stick your dick in crazy" is excellent advice.  And there is nothing crazier than a female between the ages of 14-19.
 
2013-11-17 04:53:48 PM
Pfft... if they're hard up they can always turn to their teachers.
 
2013-11-17 04:54:12 PM
Maybe they should try alcohol...

JERRY: Elaine, what percentage of people would you say are good looking?
ELAINE: Twenty-five percent.
JERRY: Twenty-five percent, you say? No way! It's like 4 to 6 percent. It's a twenty to one shot.
ELAINE: You're way off.
JERRY: Way off? Have you been to the motor vehicle bureau? It's like a leper colony down there.
ELAINE: So what you are saying is that 90 to 95 percent of the population is undateable?
JERRY: UNDATEABLE!
ELAINE: Then how are all these people getting together?
JERRY: Alcohol.

I recall an economist saying there was a particular term for that phenomenon.  I think the economist also said something like boring stable men are overlooked until later in life(mid 30s).  I can't recall all the comparisons made to an actual commerce market but those are the two things I remember.
 
2013-11-17 04:56:24 PM
Um, DUH.  Not that many kids would date within their own gender, so there goes half right there.

I can't think of many men under forty who don't seem to be struggling with perpetual adolescence. And by "struggling", I mean opting out of becoming multi-dimensional people with emotional maturity and interests which extend beyond video games and beer and into the larger world outside their living rooms.

spman:  The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.

That's easy.  It's because the top 30% of men are willing to hook up with 90% of the women.  So 90% of the women have access to the top 30% of men.  Why bother with the less-desirable 70%?  If the tables were turned, would you?

No, I just remember the females when I was in high school and middle school.

Sure, tons of perfectly normal females but when combined with the dynamics of public school, raging hormones, and quite frankly lack of any worldview, they can get pretty insane.

Not saying guys are any better but I can't speak accurately because I never tried to fark a teenage boy.

You should have written "you're".

And got should have been "have".

I have two teenage daughters. I just gave them one sentence's worth of advice about dating while teenager--"Teenage boys are stupid--yes, all of them."  This seems to be contributing to their pickiness, so you can blame me if you want for the teenage dating shortage.

/Teenage boys are possibly the dumbest creatures on the planet
//Closely followed by teenage girls
///Yes, they both get PMS at the same time.
