I ran across this article which has profound facts on why dating has become more difficult.

Interesting article and I can definitely see how all of that relates to the challenges we've all had dating. Too bad there isn't a simple solution though.

Sorry, I tried, but I just couldn't get through all of it. It was really, really long. I'm wondering how a couple's preference for a girl relates to dating. Except, maybe to say that if men fear women are becoming too powerful...influential...successful, and are eclipsing men, MAN UP! That's what women did.

I have to say that I have read similar articles recently.

Heh... I'm amused by the hypocrisy of all those women who want to be equal---except when it comes to dating and military combat. Women want to make sure those things remain very old-fashioned indeed!

As for telling us to "man up", maybe the women who say that need to "woman up". You'll get better results trying to understand a man's POV than you'll get with rudeness.

Incidentally, ease up on the schadenfreude while you're at it, because it accomplishes nothing.

It is not fear but role emptyness.

I guess you haven't been reading the news lately.

Ok, so you say the "old rules" were that the man supported the family and the women were primarily homemakers--it hasn't been that way since the 1950's and I don't think most of us are that old.
