Six Out Of 10 Young Men Are Single — The Disturbing Reasons Why?

 They’re not getting jerked around by dating anymore.

New Pew Research Center data has examined that nowadays, 63 percent of men under the age od 30 are electively single, up from 51 percent in 2019 — and those who are experts blame erotic alone time online as a major culprit.

“[Young men] are watching a lot of social media, they’re watching a lot of porn, and I think they’re getting a lot of their needs met without having to go out,” It was told by psychologist Fred Rabinowitz to the Hill.

“I think that’s starting to be a habit.” 

The new, post-COVID numbers would surely back up previous research that the pandemic has made men prefer an evening alone instead of actually meeting to their partner.

Just 50 percent of single men as a whole gave replies that they are “looking for a committed relationship and/or casual dates,” a decline compared to 61 percent 4 years ago.

But these statistics that were taken by research tell a very sadder truth about this generation of men, It was told by NYU psych professor Niobe Way to the outlet.

“We’re in a crisis of connection,” Niobe Way said. “Disconnection from ourselves and disconnection from each other. And it’s getting worse.” 

The male numbers come sharply juxtaposed to the 34 percent of women under  the age of 30 who now say they’re just single — which has seen only a slight pandemic rise in that age group.

Another factor at play might be the interests of women changing — especially as suitors of the same age are becoming apparently less desirable, Said by experts.

“[Women would] rather go to brunch with their friends than have a horrible date,” Said by LA couples and family psychologist Greg Matos.

The expectations of American men are also rising in the minds of women, according to University of Akron professor Ronald Levant and masculinity expert, who added that “unfortunately, so many men don’t have more to give.”

But perhaps the most important issue now with young men — 1 highly impacting their social abilities — is that they are, as a whole, more lonely people than women, a recent study showed.

In the early 1990s, 55 percent of men were reported to have 6 or more close friends. That percentage dwindled down to 27 in 2021, according to the American Perspectives Survey. Now, 15 percent of men say they have no close personal relationship, data compiled by the Survey Center on American Life found.

“Women form friendships with each other that are emotionally intimate, whereas men do not,” said by Levant.

Even while not dating, “[women] have girlfriends they spend time with and gain emotional support from.”
