Men & women used to need each other for survival, but now they really don't. People used to date people they only "tolerated," but is there a point to do this anymore?
Now that people don't need relationships for survival, is there any point to dating?

women are allowed to validate themselves through relationships, dating, but men are not0

Hmmm... interesting question. I guess you could say that men and women don't really need each other to provide things like food and shelter anymore, but one of the levels of Maslow's hierarchy of needs is the need to feel loved. I know that, personally, when I'm single, I feel like something is missing in my life (cliche, but true). And especially in our culture today, girls are programmed to believe that if they can't get a boyfriend, there's something wrong with them. It's probably the same with guys who can't get a girlfriend, to an extent.
I'd say that there's still a point to dating, but people will more than likely get even choosier about the people they date in the future. Back in the 1800s you met someone who lived ten miles from your claim shanty, noticed that they were of the opposite gender, and decided to get married. But now we can afford to be a little pickier than that. :)0
people aren't meant to be alone, we're suppose to be with someone else0
