The world’s most significant mental health destination, Psychology Today, published an article titled, “What’s Behind the Rise of Lonely Single Men?” in August. That’s the topic of discussion on this podcast episode of “There Are No Nice Guys.”
The author of the piece, Greg Matos, makes three key points in his article:
- Because heterosexual women are raising their standards, dating opportunities for heterosexual single men are diminishing
- Men far outnumber women on dating apps
- Men need to step it up and level up in order to meet expectations
When “What’s Behind the Rise of Lonely Single Men?” was published, it went viral. Women laughed because of course our standards are rising. We already knew that.
Also, each time we reject a man, he’ll often threaten the woman doling out the rejection with a threat of loneliness.
This is why single women are so lonely.
Ha! Nope, buddy. It’s just you. We single women are just fine. There is data to prove it.
Not long after “What’s Behind the Rise of Lonely Single Men?” was published, Life Hacker published “Stop Sharing Tinder Secrets on the Internet, You Monsters.” The author of the article whines about the trend of posting screengrabs of dating app profiles on social media.
“There Are No Nice Guys” podcast host, Laura Coronado, goes over the reasons why women do this and encourages them not to stop. She even lists where to go to submit profiles anonymously.
If you’re interested in hearing her hot take on the rise of lonely single men, tune in to this episode now. Laura also encourages women to keep raising their standards, while maintaining reasonable preferences.
