I believe Mike is 63 or so.I agree with your comment about dating and getting into a relationship being heavily based on luck, perfect timing, etc.
With that said, you and the other posters are missing the point that is how much more difficult the modern mating market is compared to what boomer males and their fathers would have faced. Being an average man in that time period was good enough to where you'd get married and have children. We live in a dating market today where women have an overabundance of options and because of this are far more selective and picky with what they choose. As I've mentioned many times on here before, there are many boomer males that got married and had children that would be complete incels in the modern dating scene. I personally can cite a boomer male born in the late 40s who most certainly has undiagnosed autism/Asperger's that was married and had multiple children while having an average income. A young man like this in today's scene would severely struggle to even get a date, let alone a second date or even a relationship, marriage, etc.
Women's overall expectations are much higher than what you would have seen in decades past. There is nothing you or I can do about this but it's important for young men to realize this is the reality we are faced with. When 2/3 of young men are single and near sexless that is a huge problem, so much so that even the mainstream media can no longer avoid it. This has been a silent trend for quite a while now until more recently gaining public attention. I suspected this was the case well before the pandemic, based on my personal experiences and observations, and it was interesting to see these feelings later confirmed. I don't think you and the others realize just how much of an impact this will have on society at large. In fact, I think many of you are severely underestimating the potential negative consequences of this. This is completely uncharted territory and you should be concerned.
