I see a lot of talk about MGTOW and Feminism. Are these two entities seeping into the minds of of our young people where it's actually causing them to just GIVE UP? I will quote two examples.
1. A young woman came to me and asked about online dating and how she could get up and running on Match. com. I was happy to help until she told me her philosophy on men. She stated that she finds it disgusting that she has to put on make up, get dressed up, just for a date. Why can't i just wear sweatpants? she also said... I am tired of educating men on how they should behave on every first date. He should like me for who I am no matter how I look. Men don't have to do anything so why should I? I basically told her I cannot help her. Attraction is a big part of my business and if you are not willing to participate then I will have to decline.
2. Dude calls me up and asks about online dating... same stuff... how can I kill it? Then he told me about his philosophy. Women want to be equal so I am damn sure I will make these bitches pay for the first date and every date after that. They want to take half my money after I give them a ring.. no thanks... I am just looking for GET IN.. GET OFF... GET OUT. Help me trick them into bed coach? Again, I said I cannot help you. I am not a PUA instructor LOL.. . sorry.
I find both movements frightening... our traditions are fading away... I am not saying some of these traditions can't be tweaked to fit today's social atmosphere but when both sexes become something else.. what's left? Japan?

Hey boo, how are you!! This is a great question by the way! I'm on the fence but not for the listed reasons! Dating is a scary world... I think people are more selfish these days! I don't mind going Dutch on the first date but I'm a bit of a traditionalist so if I am being asked out on a formal date, I think it is fair for the man to pay. I'm a cheap date so I'll probably eat a small salad and drink water with lemon! Lol!! Anyways, there are so many factors out there that I believe influence people's decisions to date. Some connections are just not organic and I don't feel the need to put my time into something that doesn't feel right! Besides, I'm trying to make friends before taking things to a serious level. Friendship building is what is important at this point!0

I wouldn't say I have 'given up' on dating, but that's certainly not a priority for me. The rigours of dating and relationships are too much for me. Maximum investment, minimum returns. I like solitude, freedom and independence.
It would require somone I am REALLY into to changemy mind, and I am not banking on that happening.6
