I watched a YouTube video the other day it made me sick. But having recently experienced it myself, I knew there was truth to what was said.
Basically the video stated that men don't want women who take care of them, do things for them, show interest in them because they consider these women to be doormats. Instead they want a independent woman who essentially plays the "hard-to-get" game.
After recently being there for a guy friend who has repeatedly been treated like sh*t by his exs I thought he would appreciate my efforts. WRONG! He instead turned to a much younger, naive, and (importantly) demanding, selfish, self-centered girl who didn't do squat to help him with anything (physically or emotionally) - very much like his exes. I don't get it. Is that all men are attracted to? Girls who toy with them & end up treating them like crap? Why don't guys appreciate a good woman when there's one right in front of them?

I have to disagree. There are many "strong, independent" women that complain about not getting men because they're apparently intimidated by them.
I don't think being a caring woman makes you seem like a doormat. The same is often said about nice guys. Only on the internet are things this black and white.
Also, I wouldn't put much stock in some video you found on the internet. I have recently learned myself that it isn't healthy to take things on the internet too seriously. It seems like it will only lead to further unhappiness and increasing insecurities.
Chalk him up to being a bad fit for you. He might regret his decision to be with her (I'm somewhat confident in that actually). Move on to the next guy, and hopefully, everything will work out for the best. Good luck!0
