With the many ways men abuse, degrade, disrespect and denigrate women worldwide, I really do feel that many men either cannot love or do not want to love.
I've come to learn, from all the reading I've done, that women have higher levels of empathy than men. Some say it's biological (i.e. nature) while others say it's due to socialisation (i.e. nurture). Whichever it is, women certainly show more care towards others. I think this explains why more men happen to be anti-social than women. It's why so many men tend to be narcissistic, sociopathic and psychopathic. If men naturally have less empathy than women and you combine the socialisation that teaches them to be as toxic as possible, the outcome is men that are completely devoid of feeling, affection, warmth, empathy and sympathy.
The way men can toss women away, like used tissues, after sex, is still something I can't get over, no matter the number of times I've read that men produce less oxytocin than women from sex.
The way men lead women on and only care about the chase more than the woman they're chasing; completely dropping the woman once he gets her, never ceases to disappoint me.
The manner in which men can fake entire relationships, waste women's time and use women for our love, affection, support, body, conncetions, intelligence, and so on, then dump or ghost us for "the woman of his dreams" will never be something I can get over. This refers to the men who will date a woman for 10 years and give every excuse in the book as to why he can't marry her, but the minute the relationship ends, within 6 months to a year, he's married with a child on the way. Ain't that something?
The way men become nasty and inconsiderate when they decide that they no longer like or love us will always be the stuff of nightmares.
The fact that so many men only seem to value the woman they lost or never had, instead of focussing on the woman they're currently with, is mind-boggling. This ties into the avoidant attachment style we've all heard about and the "phantom ex" so many men seem to have. I've heard so many stories of men who dump a woman, get with another then pine over the woman he dumped; only to, in many cases, cheat on his current partner with the dumped woman and then immediately start thinking of getting with a different woman altogether! It really seems that for men, no one is ever enough. They are never satisfied and have the attention span of goldfishes who reportedly have attention spans of just 9 seconds. This ties into how men can flirt with you extensively for an entire evening, take your phone number and never call you or tell you how much they like you, see a future with you then ghost you out of the blue.
I'm completely convinced that love isn't something most men can do or know how to do. They simply coexist alongside whichever woman they happen to be with until they move on to someone else.
What does everyone think? Do you agree or disagree? I'd really love to read about anyone's experience with the scenarios I listed.
