Disclaimer: I’m no longer in this war.
Now I’m now an observer who once fought it for more years than I can count.
I also received more purple hearts than I care to remember.
A few bullet points to consider:
1] Young women resent being hit on by men their father’s age, even in a world where said men are dating women their age, including their own fathers.
2] Middle-aged women resent being ignored by age-relevant men who look like Pierce Brosnan — and with similar levels of wealth.
3] Young men resent having to compete with men twice their age and 200 times their net worth in dollar bills.
Everyone’s pissed and confused because everything that was supposed to happen a certain way is not happening at all.
Normal, well adjusted college women will never see any of this unless their dads bring home one of their classmates — to live at the same house.
As for middle aged women, they’ll harvest from the readily available pool of college guys that want great sex without having to act on their Internet perversions with women they want to marry.
And young men no longer have unfettered access to sex on demand because now they have to do battle with older men who can outspend them in a world that values materialism over everything else.
There’s good and bad, but somebody’s gotta recalibrate the numbers.
