Men are running out of dating options, what can they do to improve?

A new Psychology Today article suggests modern dating’s higher standards for men have created more “lonely, single men” than ever, and the psychologist author of the article basically claims that men need to improve themselves and their relationship skills, or die alone.

According to PsyD, Greg Matos, because men make up about 62% of dating app users, their chances for matches, let alone successful in person meetups and eventual relationships, are dramatically lower out of the gate. He writes, “dating opportunities for heterosexual men are diminishing as healthy relationship standards increase.”

The article also cites a recent Pew Research study that found men are now “more likely than women to be unpartnered, which wasn’t the case 30 years ago.”

Matos says he regularly holds roundtable-like discussions with women ages 25 to 45, and hears that they “prefer men who are emotionally available, good communicators, and share similar values.”

It seems, unless men actively work on themselves, perhaps seeking out “some individual therapy,” straight women are increasingly better positioned to have their pick of other suitors who actually meet their standards.
