Are men not interested in the new age woman?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I thought "New Age" just meant recycled beliefs (superstitions and myths) from the Middle Ages and before, just re-packaged a little to appeal to a cyber generation. Astrology, crystals, tarot cards, fortune telling, pyramid power, rhino horn powder and ecchinacea, - all that stuff was around before the scientific method, when they were still burning heretics, and will probably always find some interested people who want to believe in shortcuts and ways to get an "edge" on life.

If, on the other hand, we are discussing a woman who just wants to get equal pay for equal work, that's only fair. But they should not ask a college admissions board or the Small Business Administration for special treatment as a disadvantaged group member, just because of their gender. Equal is equal, not special treatment.

Is a girl more attractive if she works at some tanning salon and spends all her time doing her hair and her nails to make herself look perfect or is she more attractive if she works hard to achieve things in life (which leaves no time for hours of self maintenance).

None of it makes a girl attractive to me...

Men are not interested in man haters. New age and personal life has little to do with it.

While there are relatively few direct man haters there are a great many subtle ones.
Her mums crook and she drops everything to get around there and help. He's crook and her reaction down the phone is "The bigger the man the bigger the baby".

She may apologise after he's taken a turn for the worse and had to drive himself to hospital not even knowing if he's going to leave in a hearse, bu the apology doesn't undo the damage. She would never call her mum a big sook.

When some girlfried starts jabbering about ALL men being dogs she doesn't intervene with "not my bf he isn't" It's subtle all right but it's still man hating.

Thats the kind of woman men are not interested in.

I think it that way because most mens out there are just looking for one thing you know most mens out there havea one track mind and no heart all they want is what they see instead of what they can fall in love with

Yes, I remember the old days, when all women were helpless, dependant and uneducated.
Seems like every generation thinks they're the ones who originated the " new independant woman ".

Yeah, I think you'll find many men are becoming less and less interested in modern American women.

Consider this, women drive nearly 80 percent of all consumer sales in America. They comprise somewhere between 52-56 percent of the voters. So the media and marketing is often aimed at them. Its why you see so many feminist themes running through network TV. You'd have to go to a cable show to find anything negative about women said at all in any fashion.

Divorce rates are 50-70 percent depending on where you live. Women file 80 percent of the time and gain child custody 90 percent of the time. Ex husbands are expected to pay 40-70 percent of their salary in alimony/child support in many cases.

Women currently have more enrollment in colleges in the US than men.

Litigation has created a fatherless vaccuum where someone donating sperm through a fertility clinic could be liable for child support. A man who discovers that his 'child' is actually not his, but a product of hidden infidelity is still held liable for child support. A man who lives with a single mother can be taken to Family Court and be ordered to pay child support even though the children are not his biological progeny.

The military is stocked with female soldiers who cannot often pass the basic physical requirements of specific jobs in the service. Jobs where life and death, not just political correctness, might be at stake.

So why should the modern Amercican man be interested at all in this kind of deal? This is what the modern American woman has to offer, and the offer is a sucker deal. Marriage rates in the US are consistently dropping. Other nations like Germany are already suffering from low birthrates.

Whats going on is feminism has pretty much removed men from the basic family structure. Men are being bombarded by with the idea that they aren't neccessary except to cover the tab for divorce and children. So men are just not getting married and avoiding having children. Its no secret, the stats about declining marriage rates are out there. Young men are being counseled by their financial advisors and accountants to avoid marriage and its implied liability. And more and more women are complaining that there are no men willing to marry out there. Well duh, if you treat men like second class wage slaves, stuff like this is going to happen.

I think there are probably some good and decent women out there, unfortuately I think too many young women are being raised with a sense of false entitlement and a pipe dream about men not being neccessary in society. Well feminism based itself on the idea that women shouldn't get married at all. Now they are getting their wish, its happening and look at the state of education, child rearing and family values today. Its not pretty. Sometimes you really do get what you ask for.
