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.

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.

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

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


It's because the kinds of men that women want in their teens and twenties are different from the kinds of men women want in their 30s. When women are just starting out (in high school and college), they don't want to make any commitments and are more geared towards short-term fun with dominant, high testosterone bad-boy douchebags. They don't mind sharing the douchebags because, well, they can't control what the douchebag does, and if other women throw themselves at the douchebag and he bites, she's just going to have to live with it if she wants to continue hooking up with him.

Once women's biological clocks start ringing around age 30 however, they start to migrate towards the less attractive and pudgy (but now rich and well situated) beta men who will help provide for their future children.  This seems to be The Way Things are Expected to Go now, and if pudgy betas don't like the fact that they have to wait in line for a decade or more and settle for secondhand va-jay-jay in order to get married and build a family, then that's tough. (Of course, if the pudgy betas decide to ignore women their own age and start sugar-daddying college students, you can expect the older women to cry foul and begin a barrage of shaming tactics. All the while failing to see anything wrong with their own profligate and mercenary behavior.)

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.

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.

unmonkey: 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?


Problem is when that 90% want to settle down, and those 30% have too many options to ever think about doing that.

You then end up with single 30 something women who complain about men not "manning up".
