For an activity undertaken over such a long period of time, dating is remarkably difficult to characterize.
Women might have adapted to the new rules much quicker, given the restructuring of society and the workplace to be more gender-inclusive.
But straight men, Ansari suggests, are having a tougher time.
“[In a heterosexual context] women are the recipients of more attention in person than guys.” Rudder notes that OKCupid has a pretty healthy ratio of male to female users, 55% versus 45%, unlike a lot of other services such as the app-based dating tool Tinder, which he estimates has 2 male users for every female user.
“Say you’re at a party and see a woman surrounded by guys trying to hit on her. ’ but online there’s no sense of that so you can have way too many guys focused on far too few women.”It seems that technology, including dating websites and apps and the enhanced methods of communication precipitated by cell phones such as texting and sexting, has expedited our likelihood for romantic encounters but our attitudes and expectations have been slower to change.
Or, as Ansari might say, to correct for the prevalence of the modern bozo.“Today people spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate,” writes Ansari.
“The tools we use on this search are different, but what has really changed is our desires and — even more strikingly — the underlying goals of the search itself.” Modern Romance wants readers to know that the reason they’re having trouble finding a mate isn’t because of technology, or because women fundamentally want different things than men, but because the relationships mean something different in today’s global culture than the Platonic ideal of house-car-two-kids.
