Another 'Dating market is fricked" post from a Gen Z

Why the frick is someone on dating apps, having a decent convo with someone and then immediately ghost after I ask them out? Only to then hours later follow my Instagram and never interact again? I'd be a lot less mad if you even said no. Just give me closure you fricker.

For my generation has it literally just turned into self-marketing and gaining followers? This is the most ghoulish shit ever. I fricking hate it. There's all these invisible rules and social cues you have to follow and I don't even know half of them. Why do these exist?

Is everyone just afraid of any sort of commitment/interaction but still wants the security/validation of a real relationship?

I go to local music shows relatively frequently and everyone there just seems closed off and only wanting to interact with their small group of friends and nobody else. At least any chicks anyways. I have tried chatting up a few, but it's easy to tell from their body language before even talking to them so I usually don't bother. So it's not like I'm some disgusting shut-in that doesn't put himself out there either. Everyone usually is in some miserable relationship with someone anyways cause apparently that's better than being single. Even heard that from someone in a nearby cities' scene. "Everyone here kind of just shacks up with someone they can tolerate" what the FRICK

I'm saying this under the pretense of us men have problems too to avoid a useless gender war in the comments. However, it feels like women are gaslighting us by saying "the bar has never been lower" yet they themselves can't even say no to getting asked out. Just awkward ghosting and keeping his profile as another one of her followers. And the mentioned bar is still relatively high in certain aspects.

    I really think it's high time that we as a society put our phones down and just socialise face-to-face. This is killing all of us.

      I agree but nobody seems to want to, or the collective damage has already been done.

        I know what you mean, but I don't entirely agree. People are stupid, but they're not that stupid. They're aware, and that's the first step. I'm a bit of a misanthrope, but even I still put my faith in other humans from time-to-time. The madness can't last forever.

          You still can wind up never changing anything even though you're aware of it

            True. But at a societal level that's harder to maintain because of so many competing forces and interests.

          You're delusional. You have no clue how absolutely fricking stupid the working class is. I hope it all crashes and burns.

    why should we stick around to read your temper tantrum in response to our "no"? how fricking moronic do you have to be to not understand that ghosting = rejection? i genuinely don't understand how you moids can get so worked up over ghosting; you spent sub 15 minutes of your life chatting with that person, just forget about her.

      You're overestimating your importance.
      >not understand that ghosting = rejection
      Everyone understands that, it's just rude.
      >can get so worked up over ghosting
      Once in a relationship you're getting mad over us not answering for 2 hours, so you're not quite in a position to say this.

          Just like there are rules and customs for a relationship, similar things exist for strangers too. You're just arrogant and vapid, so getting ghosted by your types is a blessing in disguise.

    Yeah, basically.

    I feel you though. The first time I got ghosted by a chick, she asked me out, I reconfirmed the day before and got myself all ready, and then she just didn't respond, so I sat in my house waiting for hours like a dipshit, wondering what was wrong or if I did something wrong. Two days later she was like "sorry lol" and made up some lame excuse. I wanted to strangle her until her eyes popped out of their sockets. But I eventually realized how common it is in this generation - I'm used to it now, you just have to adapt to the homosexualry of other people. Which means I set multiple dates to avoid this, and if multiple chicks actually come through, I just take the most attractive one and cancel on the others. Yes it's rude, no I don't like doing it, but it's necessary. It's better to frick people around than get fricked around yourself. Sad reality. At least I don't ghost, I tell them when they're cancelled. I would never ghost someone, there is absolutely zero reason or excuse for it.

      I thought I was original with this idea. I was so nervous when I asked out 2 girls at the same hour that I invited them to 2 different bars a block away and I felt so relieved when one of them cancelled

        Everyone who's smart figures it out, it's the only way to play the dating game in the face of all these flippant, callous, airheaded women. Otherwise there is a 50/50 chance you're going to be sitting around with your dick in your hand all day. I wouldn't even date at all if I had to take that chance every time, it's not remotely worth the aggravation.
