Women are losing the dating game because they are acting like feminists.

When successful, accomplished, attractive women in their mid-thirties go out looking
for high-achieving men they discover that these men are not interested in marrying high-achieving older women. They are certainly not interested in women who are, functionally, ideological zealots. --Had Enough Therapy?

Your Say

I have long been aware that post-Boomer men and women primarily seem to dislike each other. Brrr.

And as I pointed out in my comment to your wonderful re-post about abortion, the lack of honorable manliness in younger generations can only be the result of 40 years of "feminism." Hope they're happy - they've made the lonely beds they're lying in.

When you spend a few decades telling men and boys they are as necessary as a fish's bicycle don't be surprised they put their efforts elsewhere. So many women reserve the right to say or do anything and then expect there will be no consequence the moment they change their mind. So many single and divorced moms raise little boys as androgynous life accessories and then expect the dating scene will be full of Don Drapers. I'll change my mind about the state of womanhood when some of them burn down Cosmo magazine or they break into a taping of The View and start throwing punches and chairs. You go girl!

I think that the feminists who brought this situation about are a very vocal minority, a largish minority but a minority nonetheless. I also think that the slight majority of women women who don't hold with the yapping harpies are keeping their mouths shut and quietly snapping up the few good men that are available.

Sucks to be a radical feminist.

I'm so glad I never dated,
and that the guy I never dated and then I married also never dated.
We'd have been too jaded.

There is a definite lack of maternal instinct out there.
