Why does everything always have to be a gender thing? Being single is only bad for people who don't enjoy being single. Some people crave relationships and some are perfectly happy without a relationship. It's not gender related. It depends on the individual's values and needs.
Why would it be worse for either? It's not like it's a bad thing to be single.
It's terrible for anyone who doesn't enjoy being single.
It’s worse for the person who feels like being single is somehow ruining their life, which can be either or.
I wish people could gain some perspective and realize that there are pros and cons to both being single and in a relationship, and that you should always focus on the pros.
I wouldn't say it's worse for either. I would rather be single than with taken with the wrong person. If you are looking for companionship and wanting those initimate moments you cannot get with those close friends, I would say its equal for both genders. Everyone wants to feel loved by someone at some point.
It depends to the individual
Depends on the person!
Definitely worst for guys. Girls are pretty much born with happiness. Thus is why I’m still a virgin.
Being single as a girl is definitely looked down upon people think you just can't get laid
I find it cool! Not bad at all
Hate to say that but it is definitely women especially after the age of 25. Like males at age 30 or over and single are deemed to be okay living the life and stuff vs females are like unworthy of anything not being able to keep a guy and this that
While being single isn't a bad thing, being single is worse for guys. I am 27, and I know a lot of guys in my age range who have NEVER had a girlfriend, and I know plenty of them who have never had sex. They have trouble meeting women, because a lot of women these days want someone who has experience with women in terms of dating and sex.
Women have it easier in the dating world. They play a passive role. They don't have to go out and "hunt" like men do. They don't have to put effort into dating. They don't have to worry about being single for ever. They don't have to worry about lack of sex. Albeit, there are some women who have trouble meeting men; however, generally, women have a better chance at meeting a man than a man meeting a woman. The saying goes (and correct me if I'm wrong), "for everyone one woman, there are at least 10 men for her".
It seems to me that just about every woman wants to be in a relationship. Even the ones who have given up hope of ever finding one, want one. There are exceptions, but they're few and far between.
A large number of men want to be in a relationship too, but I don't think the pull is as strong in men as it is in women. Something in society or female DNA makes a lot of women believe that they NEED to be in a relationship.
Then there are men who wouldn't necessarily mind being in a relationship, but are too absorbed in whatever else they have going on to give it much thought. For men like this, being single is practically a non-issue. Some women are like that too, but they're much, MUCH rarer.
So I would say being single is worse for women.
Probably worse for many guys since there will be more of a dry spell in between or as far as not choosing to be on for guys since it's harder for guy's to get sex or with an attractive woman. An average woman can get sex with a good looking guy or better looking guy if she wants, an average looking guy would have to lower his standards as far as body and looks, unless he's really charming, extroverted, etc, which can still be a numbers games to an extent. And because generally women have lower sex drives and less visual than men, it doesn't kill them to not get laid like it can for many guys.
I think it's worse for girls because guys are much less prone to talk about relationships whatsoever. This causes a great deal of problems obviously, but a small plus is that the single guy has much less reason to feel like the odd one out.
The social pressure isn't there.
But I think this mainly applies to the young. Also, I don't know. Maybe young guys have changed?
Gender is irrelevant. I think in contemporary society there appears to be a growing hostility between genders, an increasing void where the genders are more wary, accusatory, competitive and lacking empathy for each other. It's unhealthy and I believe it has the potential to cause a lot of damage, possibly catastrophically so, to the mentality of younger generations, to the thought and behaviour patterns and sense of identity of people.
Worse for girls, especially as they get older because they have a biological clock ticking so they have much more pressure to find a partner. A single guy can meet up and fuck while girls on average are more interested in finding a serious partner to build a future with. So while being single can suck of both and plenty of guys want to commit i think the girls have it a little harder.
If a guy is single, people assume it’s because he can’t get a girl. If a girl is single, people assume it’s because she wants to be single. No idea where that double standard comes from, but it is much worse for a guys reputation than a girls.
With the dating apps now days women can get hundreds of dating matches and messages every single week. They can float around and get free meals and drinks while staying single any time they want.
If a woman wants a date or to get laid she can easily get it through her hundreds of options.
A guy is much different in circumstance. Women hardly message guys. They dont ask guys out. And believe it or not, it is much harder for a man to get over a heartbreak. Guys pretend like they are tough and having a good time. But deep down guys cry too when they are alone. Society and movies dont show this but we do. It takes us twice as long to get over a breakup.
It should be worse for girls because in average, they aren't so independent and their height and straight are lower that guy's in average (It's the truth despite I could get some downvotes from some feminazis). In the other hand, there much more girls who are interested on divorcing from their husband than vice-versa but there are some legal facts that encourage that decision, besides the fact of in average girls are more interested than guys on making changes in their life while guys are more interested on having a stable life.
I would say in modern society guys have it much harder. There are so many people out there with expecations that are not only unrealistic but can't be met by any human being. I blame this on movies and pop culture.
This might sound clichee but i think that women naturally always have more options available than a guy would have, simply because they are female and get approached more than guys do.
It's harder for us boys to get attention from the opposite sex at all, so... it's worse for us.
Girls, I mean eventually literally anyone alive who is female can and will fond someone to be their companion or have sex with them, no matter what they're like in terms of looks or personality. The same cannot be said for us.
I guess it can be equally good or equally bad
It's worse for guys, because we are expected to seek her out and ask her out. How many times have we seen this on GAG:
Girl: Guys don't ask me out.
Guy: I can't get any girl to go out with me.
In both scenarios, the guy (s) are at fault.
Typically for a woman. Reason being a woman has a short window were she can be physically desirable compare to men.
Being single isn't bad at all if the individual doesn't mind it, or has no desire for a relationship; however, for those that do want a relationship, I think there's certain aspects of the single life that's worse for one particular gender.
For example, girls will likely be hit on more often. But guys will be teased by other guys, especially if they're virgins.
i'd say for a girl it's worse. cause as a guy you can go and ask girls out. while this is an option for girls too, it's not as widely prefered by men for a woman to do that. so i'd say for a woman it's marginally harder to do something about it.
It's the same. It's worse for both (I know it doesn't make sense, but just roll with it). I mean…if it's problem for them. Example: it used to be problem for me, sometimes even still is, but…not really that much anymore. And it keeps dropping. I am very close to state, when I will not be interested. Universaly. So…congrats, girls in same city. Your ignoring strategy works.
Females. A lot of their social status is based on their sexual attractiveness and in the female hierarchy where they compete attractiveness is generally one of the core elements for power.
I don't think it's a gender specific thing. It's bad for people who think being single is inherently bad, not so much for people who are fine with or enjoy being single. For those people it's not bad.
This thing has more to do with having standards, lower them and both gender can be in a relationship.
Tough this has nothing to do with being in a relationship or having friends it has to do with being with people who you feel you live for and with because you can be single even in a relationship.
Considering the attention level girls have more people who comunicate with them then guys.
Speaking of this the guys are more single then girls.
In general, women have a time limit on being single. I'm talking about bearing children. The older woman gets, the higher the chances of complications and birth defects.
Guys, because it's involuntary. Women can get laid at the drop of a hat.
it depends on both of their situation
It ruins guys social value and it's just a snowball effect of them making it harder to get more women whereas women does not sure how long you single you can find a guy to have sex with you at any point
I don't think it's bad for either, unless they want to make mini-me's.
As a guy, i can tell you its harder for us.
