The thread has a subject that is very relevant, but the poll sullies the importance of discussing this issue by being very one-sided in it's choices (aside from Other of course).
There are plenty of other reasons men give up on pursuing women that don't involve men being the victim of society or women.
I think dating apps and social media has had a big (mostly negative) influence on courtship. Before these tools, men met women through (gasp) real life. Now, status and how nice a pic looks or how funny a handle's description is dictates how datable a guy is instead of the content of his character.
Also, I think modern feminism has had some pitfalls. Mostly, it's a good thing (the equality of genders), but like any movement, extremists exist. Feminism is almost as bad a word as social justice warrior (who would think those words describe someone bad, but that's the state we're in). Again, a lot of that is due to social media and the information we get online in 140 characters or less by an extremist minority versus being educated and well informed on the actual movements through other sources. So when we see people spouting feminism as a mask for man hate, we conflate the two even though those two things aren't synonymous.

Some people can achieve happiness from within. It's the failure of this society that having a partner is considered the ideal.

Firstly, what the fuck?
Secondly, some men choose to remain single and "give up on women" because some men aren't interested in relationships. Yes, that happens. Whoever wrote that article is probably bitter about their failed relationships. 

Stares at self... :jordancry:

hahahah rip

society would kind of collapse if people didn't pair up... in more ways than one

Yes that is true.

However the OP's article is just a lot of excuses rather then just saying either happy on my own or prefer to fuck around.

Society has changed and berating people for not wanting to reproduce is not gonna help or change anything. Seeing how the world's population is quite healthy, maybe even too healthy, I don't see the problem.

It should be clear from his last thread that OP is not looking for a conversation or a solution to a problem. He just wants to vent and blame everyone else for his life to make him feel better. Finding articles that support his warped view of reality is just par for the course.

There are so many single mothers who have broken up with men they’ve already had baby’s with. And they expect you to accept the responsibility of being a step-father and raising someone else’s child. As you get older, finding quality women is difficult. Life keeps throwing you bad eggs, women who are in their mid to late twenties and they’re still not ready to settle down and get married. Women who just want to focus on partying and having lots of fun. Women who have little to no professional skills.

At my age, many women already have kids with other guys and that causes problems in relationships. Their children and their baby-daddies are going to require too much attention and your stuck not being their top priority. You’re going to have deal with kids that are not yours and crazy ex boyfriends. In a relationship, as a man, you want to find a woman who doesn’t have baggage in her life and is able to give you the kind of attention and affection that you can give to her.

It gets harder to find quality women who are available and hoping you can get their interest. The older you get, the more drama and baggage you’re going to have to deal with when dating.
