A new study made in Cyprus wanted to investigate why men are single. This resulted in a lot of reasons, some of which will be detailed below, so take a look.
How did they investigate?
Believe it or not, scientists took on Reddit to find out why guys are single. More exactly, they analyzed the threat called ‘Guys, why are you single?’. They chose it because it had more than 13000 replies.
So, what are the reasons?
On that thread the most common reasons were being short, ugly or bold and lack of confidence was really close by. But enough of our own interpretation, let’s read some actual responses.
‘Any semblance of social skills I have go out the window if I have a crush on you’, says one Reddit user, while another feels that ‘I am ugly as f**k and have been cursed with awful genetics’.
There were some that didn’t want to make any effort in changing their relationship status or they simply refused to be a part of a long-term relationship.
Of course, these weren’t the only reasons. People believed that being too shy, struggling with a disability or addiction or a lack of money are what keeps women away from them. Also, not knowing how to flirt, not having where to meet women, being too picky or simply not being able to trust women after a bad relationship were among the reasons as well.
What did the scientists say?
According to the lead researcher, Menelaos Apostolou, the times have changed and along with them, so have the skills of men. In attracting a woman, some men are simply unequipped to deal with it.
A long time ago, men took women by force or were part of arranged marriages. Now, of course, that changed. Looks are more important, a sense of critique and knowing what you want are also required factors. Jordan Peterson, the controversial Canadian professor feels that there should be a monogamy enforced by society. He feels that, if attractive males would stay with just one woman, there would be more available women for less attractive males.
Laura grew up in a small town in northern Quebec. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
