With the advent of rapid transportation (cars, planes), atomized lifestyles, and the internet (things like Instagram and tinder have been particularly insidious), with a healthy dose of feminism thrown in and an increasingly anti-male culture, the common man has less of a chance of success at this game than ever before. And then there are males like me who, for whatever reason, find themselves completed left out and excluded.
I’m 25 years old without so much as a single date to my name. So I never really even got in the “game” to begin with. But I have no motivation to- I just despise everything it is. The 2018 dating/mating game can be described in the following ways: fickle, superficial, intensely competitive, hyper-convoluted, aggravating, toxic, ridiculous. I believe this ‘game’ brings out all the worst qualities in people.
