And we have reached the bottom. There has been no other time in history where the average woman had so many options when it comes to dating and men so little. The problem is that MANY men are willing to lower their standards a little bit if it means they improve their chances a little bit compared to other men. When men are ALL doing this then the collective standards of men are lowered, which also allows women to be a lot pickier. Obviously this concept is nothing new, but with the internet and international travel being relatively cheap it has gotten waaaay out of control.
