This is an interesting thread, and it also shows women have no idea at all what men’s lives are like.
As a commenter points out, men experience rejection at far, far higher rates than women. Women are always like, “Women get rejected too!” Of course they do, but damn, you just have no idea. None. The bottom 80% of men get rejected I’d guess at about a 100 to 1 rate of any woman — except those perhaps in the bottom 5% or less of attractiveness.
In fact, I’d say that the experience of being a man is mostly about rejection and learning how to deal with it. This, especially when we are young, defines our lives and our entire approach to it.
Is anyone going to claim that this constant and unrelenting rejection defines women’s experience and life so much as it does men’s?
If so, I’d know you are a bad liar.
