Don’t just look around at all the shorter, balding, chinless, acne ridden, lazy eyed, pudgy, fashionless, squeaky voiced, dumb, boring, poor, unemployed, remarkably ordinary guys in relationships - have a look at other subreddits here and have a think about things you’ve heard ladies complain about - it seems like most guys can actually get away with a hell of a lot, stuff that this subreddit would insist is a dealbreaker in 99% of cases.

Dating apps and modern dynamics have indeed inflated the standards of some women and enhanced the competition, and this disposable dating culture has spawned a number of its own problems, but all things considering, this subreddit drastically overstates how difficult dating is for the average guy, it just doesn’t align with reality.
