Humans. They're only acting out their nature. When monkeys fling poo, we say that's just what monkeys do. It's the same with us. We do what we do simply because that's our nature.
Hoes gonna hoe, simps gonna simp, and the only thing you can do is stay above it all.10

I have been thinking about this since I have been on this site. Social media has been around for almost 20 years which is enough time to affect a whole generation. Nobody talks anymore. If you look at TV shows from the 60's and 70's you see people having actual dialogues with each other, and the dialogue is more meaningful instead of just sexual one liners.
People are acclimated to an environment where everyone has access to 24 hour data streams but nobody really communicates. People don't really date, they just have hookups then everyone complains how shallow relationships are. I teach at a local college and see kids walking between classes. They all have their face buried in their phones instead of talking to each other. I don't know what the answer is but you should not be satisfied living in a 280 character world.10
Neither men nor women generally; everyone is responding to incentives.
I blame two things:
The tearing down of older established systems of courtship and monogamy without a working system to replace them with.
And dating apps, which basically turbocharged the above, while definitely not helping the majority of the population.10
I think it's just the internet in general, it's taken away that magic of in person encounters. Instead of having to find out information the natural way, you just look at a profile or what encounter a person when you can message them instead, over time, it's made love more watered down if it's all based on the internet0
Normally, I would say it’s neither genders blame to take. But since women were so disrespected and treated like all they were was objects, they’ve begin to take that amongst themselves and treat themselves like that’s all they deserve. Sexism has changed throughout the years thank god, but if I were to blame any gender it would have to be men.0
Women are easily manipulated by their feelings. So i say women. But i dont think its right to blame someone for their nature.10
Both, Really the sexual Revolution is to blame thanks boomers10
Both of them plus social media, sexting and internet porn.10
Its absolutely slutty women that are to blame for even giving simps fuel to play with to start the fire.10
Neither is more than the other, one relationship is different from the other0

Well, meeting someone over the net or whatever electronic means. You just lose the real courtship
Part of romance! This is something that is missing. That first connection and smell etc.
So of course dating is down, if your first interaction is a electronic device. Where’s the spark there?
Everything spirals down from there.
Just my opinion.
