And yes, there is a very negative attitude toward dating in general here. Not just from the men, but they are definitely more outspoken about it.
Easier to blame the world than yourself, I suppose. Sucks though, because some of the guys here are actually pretty decent, if they'd get out of their own heads.
I suppose it's understandable that you'll find many people here who are frustrated about dating seeing as how this is a forum for loneliness.
Seems like incels in general, when criticised, feel like their feelings are being invalidated. I need to make it clear that I know the pain of being involuntarily alone, and I know it can be very disheartening to try to navigate in the realm of modern dating for various reasons. I for instance am struggling with mental illness which complicates things a whole lot. But introverted, lower-than-average-looking guys are not the only ones who struggle. Many women do too, even those who are widely considered to be attractive, albeit likely for different reasons.
It needs to be made clear that the main problem with the incel community is not the fact that they feel bad about being involuntarily alone, but the fact that they deflect responsibility, are entitled, portray grim worldviews and are often grossly bigoted to boot. Plus, many of them seem to only be after one thing: sex with girls way out of their league.
