Women Joke About The Struggle That Is Dating Men

I, like many other women, am attracted to men, but dating one can be such a struggle. Dating men puts you in a world of gaslighting, poor home decor, and general disappointment.

However, is there any better way to deal with disappointment than to laugh about it? These are women making jokes about their struggles while trying to date men.

Men sometimes say that women wearing makeup is like they’re catfishing, but have you ever liked a man until he took off his hat and revealed that he didn’t have a hairline?

You will be spending all your time together, meet his parents, go on dates, and have him introduce you as “his girl” when you meet his friends, and then act confused when you think he’ll date you.

On one hand, I want to date a man. On the other hand, in the process of trying to find one you want to date, you have to meet and talk to a bunch of guys who say stuff like this.

One moment, you think a guy made a special playlist based on your personality and tastes, and the next moment, you realize that he just changes the name on the playlist every time he meets a new girl.

The Imbalance Is Staggering

I am genuinely shocked by the number of gorgeous, brilliant women I know who are dating guys who look like the rat from Flushed Away. I’ve genuinely never seen the opposite happen.

As a woman, you can spend months or years dating a guy, teaching him basic emotional intelligence and acting as his therapist, only for him to dump you and marry the next girl he sees.

Being invited over a man’s house is kind of terrifying because there’s a 50% chance that their apartment only has one chair, a TV, and a bedsheet over the window instead of a curtain.

I’m not saying that men are always unfaithful or that women never are, but I will say that men will act like “temptation” to cheat is so hard to overcome.

After all the things I say about not wanting to date men, I can’t just run around dating one where all of my friends can see me going against my previous statements.

You’ll go into a man’s bathroom and the only products he’ll have are a 3-in-1 body wash, shampoo, and conditioner; a sliver of a bar of soap; and a bottle of Dawn dish soap.

I’ve had different guys take me to the beach, a vineyard or two, the bowling alley, and a couple of nice restaurants, but the one they all took me was for granted.

If I meet a man whose first instinct is to ask for my Snapchat, I already know that there is no future there. All there will be are requests for nudes and gaslighting.

I don’t care if I tweet “I hate men and I never want to see one again,” I still expect the guy I’m with to like it and maybe even retweet it.

You’ll find out a couple broke up and the guy will tell everyone that she was crazy, while the woman will tell you that she just wanted him to text her back in a reasonable timeframe.

Listen, I have been let down too many times to just trust a man at this point. Sorry to the next dude I date, but you’re going to need to prove yourself a billion times before the trust will kick in.

Get Your Prescription Ready, Men

While you’re at it, I would like you to see the ways in which you could work on yourself, the effect your actions have on others, and also maybe see a therapist.

I get that I am still single as well, but I often choose not to date men, whereas I’ll run into other exes of guys I’ve dated and, as women, we bond over each man’s disappointing actions.

Putting aside that “you’re not like other girls” isn’t really a compliment, I know that I can be a bit demanding and irrationally angry about things from time to time. It’s balance.
