DrBenway: Sounds like over half of today's teenagers need to lower their standards.


Natural sorting process.  Those who are considered "undateable" will lower standards until they find someone who has lowered theirs enough to be a match.

Despair of the Cheese: 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.


So, how are they supposed to develop good judgment - from dating only from the most elite pool of boys?  People need to make some bad choices early in life to learn from them when it matters more.

Kevin72: I blame internet porn for the increasing isolation from real relations and therefore increasing virginity. Awkward porn addicts who can't understand ladies that don't want ejaculation in their faces. 0r who can't understand why shaved pubes makes a dick look retarded and smaller not bigger.


It can cause problems even with married men.

My husband has access to whatever kind of woman and experience he wants via internet porn. I can't compete with that, not when one day it's tall blondes with fake boobs, the next its pregnant women, the next black women, etc. I get it, guys like variety, but when he's only interested in sex with me once a month or less, it's kind of a bummer.

Luckily I have a few guys I started seeing after years of being miserable and feeling awful about myself.

Turns out it wasn't me after all. ;)

dready zim: ReapTheChaos: "So, despite the fact that young people are more likely than earlier generations to engage in oral sex before initiating penile-vaginal intercourse"

I see they're using the strictest sense of the word virgin. Sorry but having your dick sucked/vagina licked is sex, you're no longer a virgin at that point.

Yes they are. It is sexual but not sex.

/Sorry if that makes you still a virgin.


Are you still living in the Reagan era? Or just making excuses for that incident behind the Taco Bell?

Oh God yes. Humans are holographic beings and as such, husbands are not that different from teen males on one level. He can either go to SLAA and abstain from his addiction, or say Phuket let you get your affairs elsewhere. Difficulty: he has to decide for himself. Undifficulty: once he joins SLAA and from porn,abstains, you are there and ready. Actually you can go to the SLAA meetings with him, its a good environment. In California anyway where therapy is the religion.

Meh. They're free to date (and they do) but they often break up with guys who do stupid stuff before the stupid stuff becomes a real problem and don't make excuses for what the boys do. Like one of them broke up with a guy who couldn't handle her having anyone around her but him and stalked her and then yelled at her for having guy friends. The other broke up with a guy because he was spouting some religious crap during her school's lunch hour and she's an atheist. If staying with stupid people in order to learn from bad choices is a part of growing up then they can skip that shiat.

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

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.

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.


You say that as if It's a bad thing.

Hobo Jr.: 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 25.
