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

Um, DUH.  Not that many kids would date within their own gender, so there goes half right there.

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.

JRoo: Quantum Apostrophe: 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.

You want some more excellent advice? "A lot" is twowords.
/see how that looks?

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.

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. ;)

Hahahahahaha...*breath*...hahahahaha....

You don't know "crazy" until you date educated, career women in their mid to late thirties who need to get married and have babies NOW YOU WORTHLESS WOMANIZING SON OF A biatch!

It's ok. I'm through that phase. I have filled the void with Fark.


Errr...should we expect to hear about you and 90 cats in the future?

As far as I can remember in high school, it was pretty much the same 20 or so girls farking the same 5 or so guys. They would hook up, fight, gossip and cry, make up, rinse and repeat. Somebody was always mad and somebody else and they were always on the verge of a riot or dance off or something.

I'm not entirely upset that I didn't participate in that.

Based on those two sentences, you are someone that should not be giving advice to anyone.

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.


Tell us honestly: Is English your first language?

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".

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.

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.
