I've noticed the same thing about normal men having girlfriends in America. I'm a good looking guy and I've seen guys who resemble me and not have a problem dating beautiful American women. I guess the main difference between me and those guys who look like me is that socially they are compatible with American women and
i' m not. I've also seen guys who are not good looking date beautiful American women and again my guess is that socially these women feel comfortable with these guys. To women, social compatibility is very important when dating a guy. Its as if it comes naturally to these guys who succeed with women in America, these guys effortlessly date desirable American women, whereas people like many of us are told that we have to improve ourselves, when the reality is that many of these guys who succeed with these women, don't care about improving themselves, why? because they know that they don't have to improve themselves to attract these women.
Ghost, I think this systematic rip off of the male gender is well known among men even before MGTOW and Red Pill came to the scene.
Mind you the following was reported in a 2001 survey (it's UK data but equally applicable in other anglophonic countries):
Fast forward 14 years later (now), I cannot even imagine how much worse the situation has become for us men.
Most men have already subscribed to self preservation, and not wanting to be used as a mere 'good wallet'.
The older women from that 2001 era had been passed by and forgotten. They are now likely trapped in a perpetual cycle of poverty (financial and emotional), and repetitively going through one after another thuggish abusive partner who are the leftovers some of them former Chad Thundercocks.
All the loud mouthing you see and hear in the media is being carried out by the young women of the current time, whose fate will eventually be the same as those older women who loud mouthed 14 years ago. It is a perpetual cycle of discrimination, misandry, and poverty, something the bankers and the top 1% love. This is how you keep the proletariat under control. Women naively accepted the forbidden fruit from the serpent, and you as a man cannot punish her for her foolishness. Now you both will 'die' (figuratively speaking), unless you are rich.
Agreed. I see men my age (34) and even younger who look worse than I do with relatively attractive women all the time.I consider myself to be decent looking, and I'm in better shape now than I was at 25. Don't get me wrong, looks are important, but now I'm starting to think that your persona and image probably plays a bigger role.If you're a socially awkward type with atypical interests (like me), you're gonna get blown out. An average looking man who acts in a more "socially acceptable" way will have much better luck.
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." -Oscar Wilde
"Invincibility is in oneself, vulnerability is in the opponent" -Sun Tzu
How would someone end up decent looking but socially awkward with atypical interest?
That itself is an oxymoron. A man age 34 who is a solid 9 is pretty much also a solid 9 when he was age 25 or age 17. Good looks and poor social skills do not blend. If a man is a solid 9 all the time, he would have spent most of his life being pandered by so many women that any form of social handicap he may have will be removed even if he resisted. Not sure what persona you are talking about. In my workplace, there are so many married men who have zero persona or image.
Enough married women hit on me, I don't see the gain of being the hubby, but anyway ... to your question ...
Passive men go were people are and, essentially, wait to be chosen. It's a numbers game.
The active ones do the same and more. They ignore the 'supposed to', 'expected to' constraints.
As Ghost points out, your age has a lot to do with how you go about this. For the average man, his 40s are his peak earning years.
http://www.whatsmypercent.com/index.php?page=Data_Tables , check the age chart.
If you're late 30s - early 40s, and getting things together, you should be noticing an uptick in female attention.
Sheeeiiiiit. Let her like your looks or think you have something she wants, she'll come up with a reason to say something to you.
They can be quite aggressive about this, too. Painting your house? Putting in a new driveway? Have a remodel going on? Doing some of your own car repair?
Suddenly soft voices and smiling faces are greeting you 'Good morning', when you're checking the mailbox or tending your yard.
Nothing is 100%. A girl giving me the cold shoulder may well be all over you. YMMV.
As an aside, you're more likely to get chatted up at a DIY home improvement store than at a Walmart.

They date down in looks. My borderline obese ex has no problem dating and getting commitment from thin, normal looking guys. Most Men in America just have to accept that they'll never sleep with a desirable girl (under 28 years old, bmi between 17 and 23) without directly paying.

***GO*** to a gym. Look around. Are all the guys working out there wild, friendly, outgoing and charming?
The problem with people like you, and with a huge minority of posters on forums, is that you post the results of your thought-experiment as if it was observation of real life.
"Well actually, she's not REALLY my daughter. But she does like to call me Daddy... at certain moments..."
I think it is very easy to find women in America, if you are perfectly American like everyone else.
If you are mostly normal or average, just like everyone else, then you will have no problem. It won't even matter if you are ugly or short or poor. On the surface you think it is about that. Don't get me wrong, if you are all three then there may be a problem, but if you are only one of those, then that is likely not the problem.
The problem is we aren't normal in some intangible way. It must be psychological, mental or spiritual.
Winston is right when he pegs it on culture. Culture is a significant part of it. If everyone in the culture is an idiot following stupid trends, you are going to seem very odd if you don't follow those trends. You will look even worse if you don't follow and openly start questioning why people are following ridiculous trends.
I think most Americans are far more mentally sick than the average person who isnt from North America (or Oz, UK, etc Anglosphere crap). You have to jump through more hoops to get with an English speaking woman, they are actively looking for reasons to reject you while foreign women mostly don't do that, and they are paradoxically less feminine while taking a very passive role in courtship.
Somehow most men adapt okay to this upside down culture. But we don't.
That's why I conclude that if you are mostly normal (everything is normal about you except for maybe one thing which can be overcome), then you'll have less of a problem than if you are abnormal.

lol, this is so real. You must me a Tom Leykis listener?
I've listened to some of his shows before, but I'm not a regular listener.
Apparently 70% of American men between the ages of 20-34 aren't married. That's crazy and unheard of! Most of my mom and dad's generation were married by their mid 20s. Things are definitely changing.
IMO, the saddest part of this statistic is not the fact that we are refusing to get married (I'm 30 and happily not married btw), but that the media is trying to shame us by blaming pr0n and video games. From a logical perspective, that's just a result of us opting out of this gynocentric business known as marriage that only benefits women from a legal perspective. For me to get married willingly, it will take a miracle.
Forget about marriage, thats artificial invention thats in decline in every country in the world.
Real question is How many guys are single vs how many have gfs?
Places where I worked most guys had gfs.
We cant be fooling ourselves thinking 90 percent of guys are lonely and unable to find partner, its just not true.
How do you know most of them had girlfriends? Guys lie about that stuff you know...... How do I know? Because I have done it myself and have seen other guys lie about the same thing. Admitting to being a perpetually single guy is taboo and people would think you were weird. However, you are correct in saying that there is no way 90% of the guys are going without. I'd say it's more like 70% of the guys. The top 30% of guys have it relatively easy. And that's not to say that the 70% are completely going without. It's more like their options are extremely limited and they have to really date down to get a woman.
Don't be silly. Like you're the only guy been to the gym
Just because someone works out doesn't automatically make him a solid 9. Damn if you wish this is that easy. Most women don't date steroid junkies, and most men who work out do not end up with that male model physique. Sure they get lean and a bit buff, but the shape is ultimately defined by genetics.
Most 'gym-cels' simply don't understand this. A solid 9 recognized he is one at a young age. For the same reason, he is naturally confident and charming. He might or might not frequent gym, but if he does, it is fairly casual. Compared to those 5 or 6 trying hard in gym in an attempt to up himself to 9...now you ask why they are not charming. Big difference there mate! Wasn't George Sodini a 'gym-cel'? He thought he's decent looking too. Pardon my semantics, I take 'decent looking' with a high score, at least 8. Perhaps most men who claim to be decent looking are simply in the upper band of average.
