For instance, hypergamy is one trait that women have in common worldwide. It's only when a society goes feminist that hypergamy goes unchecked, leaving a large percentage of men out of the mating pool. Not only it goes unchecked, it's also subsidized by the daddygov. In most developing countries, women are friendlier to men because there's no daddygov backing of feminism. Either their societies don't have enough wealth to effectively enforce feminist policies, or they're too inept to do so. They're also wiser to an extent compared to Anglophone countries (e.g. legalizing/tolerating p4p), although that may be changing.Kradmelder wrote: I think women have many traits in common world wide, but the social constraints and cultures regulating their behaviour vary tremendously, hence they appear to behave different.

The problem with many American women is that they suffer from god complexes. They don't honor men or traditional roles. They lust after ungodly things because they can't submit to God. That's also how and why they can hop from man to man without blinking. It is a spiritual disorder. This is not "normal". It does have to do with cultural influences though. American women were programmed to behave this way.
Travelling is part of human nature for us, but not for many people. Many people are perfectly content just sitting on the couch, eating pizza, watching TV, and not venturing far beyond home. I have family members who hate travelling. They tend to be boring people who don't really care about anything outside of their own bubble.
Also, MANY Americans have misconceptions about travelling (much less living) abroad. They include:
-It's incredibly expensive. Going to a foreign country abroad is viewed by many Americans as something that only the wealthy do.
-Americans aren't liked overseas.
-It's unsafe (my grandmother was seriously concerned for my safety when I visited Japan, of all places)
-Everyone else in the world wants to move to the U.S. The U.S. is so wonderful, so why would I want to leave?
Most Americans just don't know any better, and that includes the dateless males. They have no idea that there are cultures different from the U.S. where respect and kindness are valued and not viewed as a sign of weakness.
I agree with your comment.
There are also other reasons why people from USA are not traveling abroad and often do not have even a passport and never have been even outside of their federal state.
Let me add to your list that one major reason is surely 'short vacation' - USA is a wide area and it takes a while to get out of it.
You cannot get so easily away for a few weeks if you have a regular job. Time is really a problem in the USA, you are much better off with vacation when you are from Europe.
True, but the Japanese don't get much vacation time either and yet many of them travel overseas. They also are far removed from Europe and North America, but I see groups of Japanese tourists all the time in NY, Vegas, DC, and all over Europe. They tend to travel in packs.
Same surroundings, same circle of friends, same shitty routine, same shitty TV programs - no surprise whatsoever that these sitting ducks adopt a backward mentality. Brainwashing fodder right there!
Why do western men die before their western wives? Because they want to!
I guess the reason why many date-less men here in the US/America will not travel abroad for a woman is because of the high risk factor of having to relocate to another country and losing his local-based friends or support group here in the US.
It is easier said than done to relocate to another country or even to another city in the US.
Money is also a big factor. It costs a lot of money to relocate and ship items from one place to another. If the guy does not ship his old items, then he may have difficult time buying new furnitures or items in another country where he also risks the chance of getting ripped off by the locals. For example, a new sofa could cost around $80 in Thailand. However, if the guy is from N. America, for example, and the local vendor in Thailand see's that the guy is a foreigner, then the price of the brand new sofa could be jacked up.
Another reason why date-less men in the US don't want to move abroad is because they are so "comfortable" (what comfort?!) living here in the US where they can watch TV, drive to the nearest shopping mall and go shopping, drive to the nearest beach to go swimming.
I laugh at these date-less men here in the US who also don't want to take the risk of dating or even marrying a female from abroad and bringing her over to the US.
One of these guys is a high school friend of mine named Terence. He's Chinese-American and was born and raised in Hawaii. We went to high school together. His last girlfriend that he had was around five years ago. Since then, he has been actively seeking women on online dating websites such as OK Cupid (LOOOL!!). I met up with him last week when I visited Hawaii. He works in a hospital and has also been trying to find girls to date at the work place, but to no luck, all the girls he was interested in were either already married, or already in a relationship with another guy. I told him, "Hey Terence, why don't you travel to China, Hong Kong, or the Philippines or somewhere else to find a girlfriend to get married?" He told me "nah, I would still rather look for a local girl." I bet my left nut that another five years from now, he will still be a single guy into his early 40's. Sad. LOOOLL!!!
