The Future of Dating?

August 21, 2011

There was a time, however brief, when online dating actually worked. In those halcyon days, there was a good chance you could actually get a date, and even meet someone worth getting to know. Alas, no more, and PoF is solid proof.

Before online dating came in, women had to be realistic, and couldn’t afford to be too picky, else they ran the risk of going dateless. Today, online dating makes a vast range of choices available to women, and they can filter out men who don’t meet certain very narrow criteria. That is, they can filter in the top 5% of men – rich, good-looking, and tall, and ditch the rest. In addition, they can ignore or block men who respond to their profile, if they’re not up to snuff. As a result, a lot of perfectly good guys are getting shut out. It doesn’t help that the vast numbers of women on PoF doing the shutting out are of low-quality – thug lovers, tattooed from here to kingdom come, serial daters, substance abusers, single mothers looking for a meal ticket for themselves and their kids, fatties, and psychotics who wouldn’t even begin to interest the top-notch guys.

Hey ladies, this is your dating future!

The situation isn’t any better on pay sites. Women who pay a fee for use of a dating site are even more demanding, and they often see the fees they pay as an investment in landing a top-drawer guy. And sometimes they will pay just to get some attention from men if they’re really hard up.

It should come as no surprise that low-quality women can be found on pay sites, too. And because they are generally unwilling to accept imperfect men, men who join up hoping to meet a woman end up spending a lot of cash to get essentially nothing in return. This is one reason why pay dating sites are often fraudulent. Because the few real women who are using such sites generally skip over the average guys, (and the operators of pay dating sites know they do this,) fake profiles are used to entice men to sign up, and at the same time give them the false impression they might actually get something for their money. Sadly, this kind of fraud is hard to prove, and the legal systems in most Western countries are loath to address it.

You might be forgiven for thinking that dating in the real world is better. It isn’t. Consider for a moment the fact that women who join PoF and other online dating sites can also be found in the real world, along with all their negative behaviors. Indeed, many men find that their success rate in the real world is just as poor as it is on PoF or elsewhere. Unless, of course, they’re good-looking, or have got ‘game’.  To paraphrase Amy Alkon, The Advice Goddess, if you go looking for women in grocery stores, you’d better have a game that’s good enough to charm a woman even while you’re bending over a corpse at a funeral. What ever happened to the days when you could simply just be yourself and succeed with women?

Sifting through the hundreds of comments that have popped up here on Plentyoffish Sucks! several things become crystal clear. The first thing, obviously, is that online dating sucks – and it doesn’t work for men. The second is that men are getting fed up with women and the increasingly rotten treatment they get from them. Oh sure, there are alternatives – escorts, porn, onanism, celibacy, hook-ups, and PUA. But none of these are realistically sustainable. And if you’re thinking about getting into random hook-ups, you’d better have game, and you’d better be good-looking. As for Pick Up Artist (PUA) techniques, they’re just a sophisticated form of begging for sex that puts women in the driver’s seat.

Since none of the alternatives are workable in the long run, what’s next? Here’s what’s next. Men are increasingly noticing how poor their odds of success are in trying to get a date. They’re going to jettison online and traditional dating.  They’re going to turn their energies to other pursuits, or go overseas to places where women still like men. Eventually, what will follow from all this is that women, either offline or online, won’t be able to get any dates. And as I mentioned in an earlier post, “What the Hell is Wrong with Women Today?”, they’ll be relegated to living with their 999 cats or having lesbian affairs. Even if they do learn to smarten up, (and they seem to be congenitally incapable of doing so), it’ll be too late. The good news is that the fraudulent online dating sites are going to dry up in droves. The bad news is that the rare, few good women that might be out there are going to suffer terribly for their sisters’ perfidy.

It’s a piss-poor state of affairs, no doubt about it. The only people who are likely rejoicing over it are the NWO and the zero population growth freaks, who by now must be dancing with glee.
