You think it's bad now?

Just like the global warming pundits, I feel compelled to paint the picture of what the future will be like “if things don’t change”, as just like them I do not expect anything to change. So imagine a good decade or more down the road, figure that no other major catastrophes to give society the electro shock therapy that it desperately needs.

Marriage of course will be dead in the eyes of any man under thirty. It will be relegated to that thing that only old people and creepy women participate in, kinda like what the Catholic church is now. There might be some public notice given to it, however I am not inclined to think so as the media has done everything short of closing it’s eyes and putting its fingers in its ears to ignore it so far that it’s not likely it’s total demise will alter this policy.

Another trend, that has already begun and is already being noted by feminists and men alike, is that of the fear women seem to have about ‘dying alone surrounded by cats’. If my observation of women has shown me anything, it’s that they can barely tolerate each other in their relative youth and in old age they all but completely ignore each other in old age. The ones already locked into this trajectory I suspect will make overtures to their fucked up children in the hopes that somebody will be around to notice the dead body.

While this future isn’t much better for men, the young men are going to envy their fathers as the girls who are being raised now will make our generation look like saints by comparison. What will now be a third generation of girls who are treated better than the historical princesses whose title they have taken, they will not only expect to be pandered to, they will begin seeking ways to enforce this attitude on an increasingly resentful male populace. To compound this problem, younger men will find a tidal backwash of thirty-something men who will make an already grossly overvalued dating market reach levels that could only be rivaled by the dotcom bubble.

One element though that I find amusing is that given this toxic environment for men, I predict at some point in the next decade, when the advancements in computer technologies and virtual interfaces reach a degree, that somebody will craft a truly palatable form of virtual sex. When that happens, though it may take more than a decade, dating as we know it will come to a crashing halt. The phenomenon caused by World of Warcraft, where literally millions of people have all but disappeared from the lives of their friends should give a good idea of what women will have in store for them.

"Marriage of course will be dead in the eyes of any man under thirty. It will be relegated to that thing that only old people and creepy women participate in, kinda like what the Catholic church is now."

It's already dead in my eyes. I have talked to my father and uncle's about marriage and my father says he would never do it again. My dad reminds me, "if mama ain't happy no one is happy."

My uncle's take , "it's not about what you want it's about what she wants."

My other uncle's advice, was just a smile, and "it's cheaper to keep her."

WTF, cheaper to keep her is a song by Johnny Taylor that's your advice on the biggest financial decision a man can make.

Women are in charge the best bet for a man is to run once she talks of marriage and children.

Women already believe men are commitment phobes. They are too self-centered to figure out why.

Excerpt from the article, "6 Commonly Held Beliefs Among People Who Lack Common Sense"

5. Your wife is supposed to be your best friend, your soul mate, your lover and your confidant.

I’d like to shoot the guy that came up with this crap. Specifically since my best friend is someone who I can trust to tell my wife that I was with him last night when she calls.

I have absolutely no idea what a soul mate is.

I get the lover part but it just feels wrong limiting myself to just one woman. Not my decision, but mother nature’s.
As for a confidant: see my first point.

Most days I go home, kiss the cat, kick the kids and sufficiently sedate myself with bourbon and hope to successfully coexist with my wife until bedtime. Anything more is a bonus.
Moving right along …


Men are supposedly attracted to their mother and women to their fathers. Well what if your mom is a ball buster?

My mother treats my dad like shit.

So I'm not getting married. My mother does not realize why I never want to get married.

My mom and dad try to make me feel bad about never having a serious relationship. "You only use women for sex they say."

They are both miserable in marriage. My mom has told me she would leave my father if she could afford to(live in California $2,200 mortgage).

Why would I want to be like them?

If a woman was raised without a father , she'll leave you before you can leave her.

If a woman's father was abusive, she'll marry an abuser. (One of my female friend did this exact thing).

She's in the process of divorcing the guy.

Marriage is something that is still considered the norm for the well educated & middle class. Being an unmarried man be a certain age is not a positive indicator as far as society is concerned. There is a lot of pressure put on men to eventually marry, even if the age for marriage has moved up.

I suggest that men marry early when they have nothing (start up wife), ensure that they have no kids and get a quick divorce. A cheap Vegas marriage to college gf followed by a quick divorce would take care of the issue like catching the measles as a child.
