The question says it all.
It has been the general opinion of a lot of men, that its far more difficult to approach women now, then it was a decade ago. Earlier, hardly anyone used to complain about not having girlfriends. But today, the situation has apparently become so worse that a lot of men have actually given up on women and going their own way, because they feel women are not approachable at all.
So so you think there is any truth to this? Or are men of today just not charming or suave enough to attract women anymore? On a side note, does this 'change' (if you feel there is a change) influenced by feminism?
Looking forward to interesting answers from both genders!

Well, nowadays women are actually allowed to say no and I'm not talking about in that coy "tehe, my father wouldn't allow me" or "I'm no harlot" type of way now we're allowed to just straight up say "you're not my type" and we're actually allowed to have a type.
Also, people get married much later now. In 1960 the median age for marriage was 20.3 years old. Now it's 26.1 (I'm 19 now and shocked whenever I hear someone my age is getting married) So less women are in a rush to settle down and also it's not expected of us to. Back then guys had girlfriends in high school maybe through college, but when it came down to it there were girls graduating high school everyday and back then girls were taught to graduate and get married, settle down have some babies ASAP.
Women live much longer now. My great grandmother died at only 42 from a stroke. Back then you got married ASAP and had as many babies as you could before you died unless you were rich in which case you would still have like 5 kids and that was considered a small amount. Now middle classed women are having what like 2-3 kids on average and women with money even LESS and even older. My great grandma died at 42 that's the age at which most business savvy women are JUST deciding to have their first kid.
So I'd say the number 1 reason women are less approachable today than they were in the past is because they're not in a rush to pop out babies anymore. Yes, I would say it has everything to do with feminism, but I don't think that's a bad thing. It's just that women are choosing work over men now (which yeah I would say also attributes to girls dating "bad" guys because they know the guy isn't permanent or anything. It's just a fling) and women are taking control of their own lives. I don't think it has much to do with men not being suave enough just that women have the choice to say no.4

blame it on feminism my friend, woman are being indoctrinated with a lot of bullshit in the media. Are woman equal to men, no, do they have the same rights, yes... Woman dont value old fashioned chivalry anymore, if you are friendly, you are weak, if you are caring, you are needy, if you are outgoing, you are clingy... thats how us men are being portrayed daily. I see girls begging for the guy of their dreams, good looking, friendly, etc... and end up with the biggest low lifes you can imagine. Recently I've been dating a single mother, i was nice to her, did romantic stuff, conciderate , all the bs woman want, and look at me now... she destroyed me completely, today i got on anti depressants, or happy pills , just to get over her psyhoctic borderline behaviour. woman aren't woman anymore, thats the problem, all a bunch of GI Janes, craving for the perfect guy, but ending up with bad boys, the biggest summbags you cna imagine. ill go try find a lady in eastern europe, were woman have more traditional values. woman in the western world are to demanding. ... im reading the comments down below and some of the females responding are down to earth, but some are just full of feminst bullshit!!!0
