When it comes to men dating women, there’s no denying that there are a lot of challenges that we face.

I could discuss the opposite for women. But most articles about dating are geared towards women. It’s no secret that the majority of dating advice and resources out there are geared toward women. In fact, a survey conducted by the dating app, Hinge, found that 84% of their users were women, and only 16% were men. This disparity is also reflected in the self-help and advice sections of bookstores, where shelves are lined with books targeted toward women seeking relationship advice.

But why is this the case? Perhaps it’s because some women have been traditionally seen as the ones who seek out relationships and are, therefore, in need of advice and guidance. Or maybe it’s because men have been socialized to keep their emotions and dating struggles to themselves.

Most women wouldn’t listen to me anyway. I’m a little too blunt. Go listen to Derrick Jaxn and Matthew Hussey. They pander to you all far better than I ever could.

Women are more empowered than ever, and there’s nothing better than seeing that. We still have so far to go with equality, but most, if not all, people are striving toward that. However, with these new changes come new obstacles, and that’s what I want to talk about today.

Dating is tough, regardless of your gender. Women have their own unique struggles when it comes to finding love, and the same goes for men. The purpose of this article is to shed some light on the biggest struggle that men face when dating women nowadays. By no means is this article meant to bash women, but instead, it’s a chance for women to empathize with a man’s point of view and for men to receive some advice.

I’ve been there, folks. I’ve been on my fair share of first dates, and I understand how difficult it can be to navigate the dating scene. With the rise of technology and dating apps, dating game has become even more complicated. COVID didn’t help either; it just sent us further back.
