Men No Longer Want to Date, Why?

    I am 27 and I would be interested in knowing why men don’t go into relationships as readily anymore or marry as often as they once did.

    I'm told that Irish society has become anti-male and men are avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates but I think it's more to do with the institutional bias and blatant sexism of laws and practices that have become the norm against men. The numerous reasons are a court system stacked against men in regards to paternity/wider justice issues, a school system which is stacked against men and boys, a hostile work environment to men in many workplaces.

    I don't disagree that relationships have their ups and downs but it may help to understand more about what the typical men are going through in this country and why they don’t actually feel and think as much about relationships.

    Housing costs, kids costs, etc etc etc

    Also, loads of apps etc etc etc, so causal sex is easily available.

    Also, society isn't supportive around families, except as a unit of consumerism and hamster/worker bee producers.

    Then there is climate change, ecology collapse, wars, pension crisis, ...



    I haven't come across the anti male stuff you mentioned. But maybe if I had a divorce I'd experience some of these issues.

    It's a huge problem for society.

    No. Maybe read a history book or look at current events and come back to me with why feminism is unnecessary?

    Kids shouldnt have anything to do with it if you meet the right person & its usually the women that gets left the kids in a breakup so if you miss out on having your best friend for life you have only yourself to blame.

    (Edit) referring to previous post which had a load of stereotypes in it ....

    I hate online games.

    I play single player offline games.

    And I'm bald.

    I don't watch online games like soccer or formula one.

    But yeah, the original post has a couple of unrelated things in it. It's a rant wrapped up in a why don't guys commit question.

    Yes, the apps work for every sex under the rainbow. Nobody will commit, it's the tyranny of choice.

    yeah thats pretty stupid level of thinking. Women these days are super attractive. We as a society tend to eat well, most people like some basic exercise and our health levels are great in general. I find it odd that people often comment on people being unattractive. I think i find the majority of people physically attractive, im just not attracted to them for compatibility reasons or a lack of time that i don't actually know about them enough.

    Physically people are super hot and well dressed these days. Though i spend a lot of times doing sports i like so people are in great shape there.

    That's a bit like asking what the second world war was about.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.
