This has been on my mind a good deal lately. I have seen so many posts on Reddit, Instagram Snapchat etc of women just constantly getting attention validation from hordes of desperate men. I’m talking average 5s getting drowned in hearts, messages etc. Don’t think this is just bashing women though; I don’t doubt if somehow the switch got flipped and shirtless dad bod guys were getting buried in messages by desperate women they would behave any better.
The point remains though; with the way things are going, I seriously question where we will be in 20 years. Divorce rates have skyrocketed the past few years to the point that marriage is becoming a thing of the past (which is fine just pointing it out). Many relationships I’ve observed in my friends and family group the past few years have crumbled quickly. In general both genders seem to be significantly less happy, and lots of people on both sides are just giving up. I think with both sides getting their pseudo needs met (woman getting attention from social media and men receiving visual gratification from pornography) it is leading to people being far more nitpicky in relationships, much less likely to try and work it out when there are seemingly so many other options available.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
