It sounds like a lot of whining because even on a platform like this, they're still losers.
Hong Wu wrote:There's also the alienation factor; plenty of people (women as well as men) are disgusted by the Tinder scene and so they deliberately shut themselves out of it, which means shutting themselves out of much of "dating".
So then meet them in the real world, like everyone else does.

It's more easy for a GUY to get a woman, if he has some confidence, social skills, and some semblance of a personality. Perception is not always reality.

I have seen some "5" guys in the West, with some "9" girlfriends. They don't see their appearance playing such a large factor, and as a result, it doesn't.
Hong Wu wrote: In countries that have not suffered the dating apocalypse, a guy who is a 5 will be dating a woman who is a 5.
Only because they wish to. What about the guy who is 5 dating the girl who is 9? How does that work?
Many wealthy men date women far more attractive than they are, because appearance is not the only yardstick by which people are measured. Personality, confidence, money, sense of humour, charisma, etc. are all things that attract people.
This is simply another example of people who suck at socializing and dating, complaining about it.
