It's the thirsty men. It's the men who continue to message women all day long. Act pathetic and beg for attention. Send women dick pics, offer them money, say they'll do anything to go on a date etc. That's what ruins dating.
This is why women act the way they do. Who can blame them? They have tons of offers. They can afford to dismiss men left and right, even if you're nice. It doesn't matter because they have tons of options. They are just taken advantage of the situation weak men created and choose the best of the entire group.
I don't like it anymore than the next guy. But the desperate men need to stop. It is ruining our dating culture. It's also massively inflating their egos.
Do I think women are awful? No. They're doing what anyone would do in that situation and just taking advantage of it. Can't blame them.
