Socialize, talk to everyone. Young, old, male, female, someone from every other culture.

That's a problem a lot of young kids have, they cannot socialize and do not know where to start.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
Single mothers and weak or absent fathers do immense damage to young men.

Extreme outcomes are frequent - they either live a life of delinquency and crime or become the kid who "discovers" he's gay or maybe even wants to change his gender before he even gets to high school. Throw in the usual psych meds and the ride gets even more wild.

Homosexuality can be traced directly to father deprivation in connection with a usually older homosexual who works his way into the confused kid's life at just the right moment, convincing him he's just closeted after all and ought to come out.

Even if neither scenario results and the son manages to stay out of jail, he probably still doesn't know squat about team work (or hard work) and never really amounts to much. Increasing numbers of guys like this are winding up in the military nowadays. Some straighten up and turn out ok; others just turn out.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
matriarchy, feminism, womens dominant market. If they're all wasps and jews, for example i saw black panther and i was moderately offended by the judaism in that movie, didn't feel the african culture at all. I watched narcos, that stuff was gangst and really tight latin culture. You have to learn a language that has a reputation for equality between men and women, a society where men actually have a voice in what happens. People are addicted to sex, and they'll do anything to get it no matter what cost.

I have to disagree there man. What, we're supposed to just see and recognize that there is an issue and not talk about it?

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
Lack of socialization and extreme social atomization.

Being from what's probably the most academically competitive country in the world, I have seen, and have in fact personally experienced first hand, the effects of lack of social interaction, stemming from the mentality that booksmarts mean everything. Yes you do get good grades, but don't be surprised if you are physically weak, socially stunted, and not as good looking as your genetics can allow. This can be fatal for game especially outside of East Asia.

Social interaction is a muscle. If you don't exercise it, it will it weaken. The more you do it, the better you become.

In the West, it seems like its a mixture of technology, followed by multiculturalism. Before technology and multiculturalism, people were forced to interact with everybody but also have the advantage of everyone being on the same page at the most basic level: This greatly helps developing one into a well rounded person. The mixture of video games, social media, all of which in a multicultural setting, one can easily retreat into a cocoon and not come out.

Talking from first hand experience, failures at social interactions can be very tough on one's ego. Without trial and error in general social interactions, including making some truly embarrassing, autistic mistakes, one will never gain the necessary social skills to attract a hot girl even with looks/money. In fact, given how the economy in the West is structured nowadays, a lack of social skills precludes you from getting money let alone girls. Due to how painful it is to feel socially rejected, many young guys don't even attempt, which feeds into a vicious cycle.

Unlike in the West, social awkwardness is frequently overlooked and relying on booksmarts alone can still get you somewhere in my home country: STEM careers are generally worshipped in Asian cultures. This makes it even harder for socially awkward young guys.

I have to disagree there man. What, we're supposed to just see and recognize that there is an issue and not talk about it?

No I want you to stand up and do something about it. Recognizing and talking about the issue is nothing new. There are many threads about this already. What I am talking about this is action. Not to change the world, but just making small changes to your life and setting examples. We have to break down threads like this from newbies (not you particularly) very carefully to understand what's happening.

Typically these threads and thoughts bring up an issue without any practical information. For example, you talk about the state of young men without talking about how you fit into this and how it affects you. It's almost like you're "asking for a friend." Let's go a little deeper. Guys that start threads like this also (again, generally, not you particularly) have already "given up" on western society. Meanwhile, these are the same guys that are either playing the video games and jacking off OR banging away the women and calling them sluts. On either extreme, these men complain that the western women have failed. Meanwhile, there is no introspection into themselves as to why they themselves as men have failed. This psuedo "silence" has led to women choosing their own path on the journey of cock.

If on the other hand, more men in the west were holding women accountable instead of just fucking them or jacking of to them, there may be a chance that they can actually become the feminine beacon of light that many here seek.

My point is that there is no culture of masculinity in the traditional sense anymore within the west. As parenting does move more to single family and divorced households, there is no encouragement for younger people to get married and start a family. Marriages have gotten taboo and families are next on the chopping block. I'd say western men did this to themselves and now want to blame anything they can get their hands on except themselves.

Here on the forum the ratio between people that have started threads to "talk" about this stuff as opposed to practical threads regarding what to "do" (including self improvement, fitness, etc.) is way too high. No one wants to put themselves out there anymore. It's just easier to play Call of Duty.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
The rise of helicopter parenting.

I know we can talk about society and media but the rise of helicopter parenting and parents being way too involved is what has contributed the most to it. One of the most unfair advantages anyone can have in life is good parents who lay down the foundations to make you into an alpha male. The kinds of parents that let you go out, have fun in your youth, experiment, socialize, learn from your mistakes, and yet at the same time hold you accountable when needed.

For your typical Chad or Thad, this has rarely been an issue. Where this becomes an issue is in cultures where parents want to do everything for their kids instead of letting their kids be adults. Demographic trends will say that people from these sorts of cultures are becoming all-too-common and their numbers are growing more, not that this is an issue but it explains a lot. Your typical Thad or Chad is not struggling being socially competent, his friend who had a repressed upbringing is.

My theory is that almost all of these guys you see, myself included to some degree, talking about some of their game struggles in the past had this sort of an upbringing.

When you are chastised for talking to a girl in your youth by the very people that had you, it takes years to rewire your brain to think it is okay to talk to girls.

When you are chastised for making your own decisions in your youth, it takes years to rewire your brain to make yourself independent. Adulthood and maturity take some time and you are always looking to see if something is okay or acceptable by everyone rather than just fucking do it.

But the most important thing is what can you do about it?

I say tell em to fuck off. Seriously, if this is something you have been through, tell them to go rot and go down your own thing, become independent. I find it irritating that society tells everyone to respect their parents, no, sometimes horrible people have kids. Once you find your way, they'll learn to act right and stay in line than trying to treat you like an 8 year old when you are 30.

You have a point here. For those that grew up in that kind of environment that eventually become fathers to sons, you can encourage them to not only study hard & get straight A's, but also play some sports & have healthy relationships with women & a solid group of guy friends.

As for the OP, get out there as much as possible into the community in various ways. Whether through school (if this still applies), work, meetup groups, church/temple/mosque groups (heheh), sports interest groups, whatever!!! Get out there & mingle in any way that you can, even via side hustles dude. And I sometimes agree with Roosh that hitting up the dating apps is like dumpster diving, but F it. Hit up the apps too. Make sure you are eating right & keeping your fitness in check.

There is really no need to have to retreat into being some lonely incel. There are many older folks out there that wish they could be young again.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
Vices like video games and porn are just a symptom of a deeper void in the psyches of boys and young men. That void can be directly attributed to the lack of masculine wisdom and direction to balance maternal or otherwise female influences (e.g. preschool and elementary school teachers) in their upbringing.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
Hi All,

I think one factor in the social incompetency of some men are the overprotective parents.

It is said from personal experience. In my case the focus was on formal education (from school to University), with very little freedom to socialize when I was a teenager. It of course impacted negatively in my social competencies when I was a young adult. It took some time when I got independency to catch up with the world.

For younger generations it is getting worse, as couples are getting less children and there are in some cases no siblings / cousins to play with; in combination with parents spoiling their only child (helicopter parents as mentioned by "A beer is enough").

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
^^ I agree with this. I was, and to a certain extant still am, socially awkward, especially around women.

I’m older, so I grew up with a father who was straight out of the 1950s (I don’t think this was in any way normal, even for his generation). He was home by 5pm every night demanding dinner and quiet children. Essentially he was a dictator, and anyone who decries current soft, feelings-based parenting would have had no problems with his techniques. My brother and I were freely and often brutally disciplined.

It could not be said that he wasn’t attentive- we had dinner together as a family every night, saw our parents all the time, and had to obey a strict set of rules, particularly when going outside or visiting friends, so my shyness and awkwardness in front of women wasn’t a case of lack of parenting. In fact, I would argue that it was because of my strict, controlling father.

His domineering personality wouldn’t allow anyone to do anything for themselves. We couldn’t talk back, even as a respectful disagreement, without risking a slap in the face. If we did disagree and went ahead with something that did not meet his approval, the insults and comments could be withering, and god forbid the plans failed because it would lead to literally YEARS of “I told you so’s”.

I don’t think his motive was “protection” as much as “control” but the end result was the same- fear to take the initiative, fear to be independent, and a fear to take risks, which is kind of a problem when you walk into a party filled with people or a business meeting and need to talk to people with confidence.

It’s great to have active parents who care, but over protection, or excessive control, or whatever you want to call it, does not promote the growth of a healthy confident individual.

I wasn't going to lift this afternoon because I haven't been sleeping well but this thread motivated me to get back out there and get my sweat on.

This forum has contributed a lot to my growth as a man and I keep the tenets I've learned here in my mind often when I'm interacting with people.

I think the answer to OP's question is that society doesn't need or want men anymore. A lot of the white collar professionals - the ones who make real money and have upward opportunities - I meet through school or my internships don't seem to respect creative work very much - even having skill with your hands or a willingness to spend time making your own shit to save money and be a boss is a sign to them that you're beneath. On another point, too many of the guys at my gym spend more time with their heads down at their phones than working, I have no idea how they get big at all. Roids?

To all the old guys saying things along the lines of "man up": blow me

It's not the 80s or 90s anymore. Every year us young guys face a more fragmented social landscape where women are increasingly drawn into their phones. Every year we face more competition for work from Chinese and Indians. I'm an immigrant myself and fuck yeah am I taking your jobs but at least I plan to stay here and be a real man in American society, start a family and hopefully a business.

To finish it off, those of us with a grain of non-NPC perspective have no reason to interact with most of these shallow, vapid hoes. I'm following God's path and making useless small talk to chase loose pussy outside of marriage is all lose and no win. When girls approach me I talk to them, and have met some interesting people recently. But I'm focusing on building myself and a close group of guys who have my back. The women will come after success like moths to a flame, and not before.

I agree, I saw an article about intensive parenting recently. It just meant modern, stupid, overbearing parenting where all these prima donnas act like raising kids is so fucking hard. Shut up. I never heard that shit growing up and laugh now when I hear it all the time. But it must be multifactorial with women having kids older and with less energy, more spoiled, more conflicted due to thinking they could be drinking wine and watching netflix as opposed to overseeing the rugrats.

Stop paying so much attention to your kids. Let them play. And don't feed them so fucking much or what they want. These days, feeding them too much or too much of what they want is doing way more harm than them going hungry, let's be real.

RE: What has contributed most to the social incompetency of young men?
Three reasons. Egalitarianism, technology and the drop in testosterone levels.

Feminist ideology spawned from egalitarianism. First of all there's the most harmful aspect of broken households, directly related to female liberation. Single moms and fatherlessness are proven to cause a negative impact on children. Secondy, we are living in an era where men and women are deemed completely equal and are attributed the same gifts and tasks in the household. So even if a couple with children stays together, traditional parental roles are often times mixed up. The two first years of a child are very critical to it's development, with a pivotal role for the mother, who should give the child breast milk. Young children in general are supposed to be taken care off by their mom, the role of the father only increases once the child grows older (think 10+). Like a beer is enough and jordypip already stated, there is a surge in helicopter parenting. Parents are acting way too overbearing and overprotective with their teenagers. Fathers in this case are actually assuming a mother role. Mothers are supposed to be protective of their children, by implementing small rules and limitations. Fathers on the other hand used to assume the role of an enlightened despot; leaving enough liberty for development but also marking a red line, a line that if crossed by the child, leads to serious implications. But a lot needed to happen for the child to cross such a line. The increasing confusion around parental roles has a lot to do with feminization. Wich leads me to my third point: not only is there a lack of male role models (because of single moms and female only teachers), feminization has led the men in the lives of the developing adolescent to act like women.

Technology would be the second big cause for the rising social incompetence. We haven't quite figured out yet how to deal with all the new means that have been handed to us. So a lot of young guys are losing themselves in their video games and the internet. It's only natural that they do if their use of those devices remains unhinged. Once again I would say feminization plays a great deal in this one, because parents are no longer demanding their sons to compete in sports or to go out. They just allow them to sit at home because that way they always know what their kid is up to and they have no reason to worry about all the things that might go wrong if he leaves the house.

It's no secret that testosterone levels have been dropping significantly and school records also show that just 20 years ago pupils on the whole were more athletic. We are slaves to our biology, so the drop in T-levels most certainly has an influence on the social skills of young men.

I've suffered from a lack of masculine wisdom my entire life and here I am in my late 20's trying hard to correct it. Wish I knew what I know now, back when I was in my late teens.

The women will come after success like moths to a flame, and not before.

I grew up during this period and it was great. I wouldn't change it for a thing, there was still a bit of innocence which seems to be lost today.

However, there is one advantage that young guys have today which was never available before. That is the option to escape working the 9-5 and staying with one company, hoping that you can climb the ranks.

The internet has changed many things, it has allowed many people to work anywhere in the world.

Globalization has allowed many of us to travel to countries that would have not been acessible in the 80s and 90s.

This forum has many guys that are living the independent location lifestyle. Even the founder Roosh was able to leave his lab job and make a living talking about game.

So as a old guy, I don't feel sorry for any young guy.

If you don't like your environment, move to one that favours you.

Being in the West (North America) we have access too so many things that we take for granted. Travelling will open your eyes to opportunities all over the globe.

Again, stop whining and blaming others.

This forum has contributed a lot to my growth as a man and I keep the tenets I've learned here in my mind often when I'm interacting with people.

I think the answer to OP's question is that society doesn't need or want men anymore. A lot of the white collar professionals - the ones who make real money and have upward opportunities - I meet through school or my internships don't seem to respect creative work very much - even having skill with your hands or a willingness to spend time making your own shit to save money and be a boss is a sign to them that you're beneath. On another point, too many of the guys at my gym spend more time with their heads down at their phones than working, I have no idea how they get big at all. Roids?

To all the old guys saying things along the lines of "man up": blow me

It's not the 80s or 90s anymore. Every year us young guys face a more fragmented social landscape where women are increasingly drawn into their phones. Every year we face more competition for work from Chinese and Indians. I'm an immigrant myself and fuck yeah am I taking your jobs but at least I plan to stay here and be a real man in American society, start a family and hopefully a business.

To finish it off, those of us with a grain of non-NPC perspective have no reason to interact with most of these shallow, vapid hoes. I'm following God's path and making useless small talk to chase loose pussy outside of marriage is all lose and no win. When girls approach me I talk to them, and have met some interesting people recently. But I'm focusing on building myself and a close group of guys who have my back. The women will come after success like moths to a flame, and not before.

I grew up during this period and it was great. I wouldn't change it for a thing, there was still a bit of innocence which seems to be lost today.

However, there is one advantage that young guys have today which was never available before. That is the option to escape working the 9-5 and staying with one company, hoping that you can climb the ranks.

The internet has changed many things, it has allowed many people to work anywhere in the world.

Globalization has allowed many of us to travel to countries that would have not been acessible in the 80s and 90s.

This forum has many guys that are living the independent location lifestyle. Even the founder Roosh was able to leave his lab job and make a living talking about game.

So as a old guy, I don't feel sorry for any young guy.

So many guys want to whine about how hard things are today, then the next day they jet off to Colombia, Poland, Ukraine, China or which ever country has been deemed the pussy paradise du jour that their internet bff's have been raving about. Guess what? In 1987 if you tried to travel to Medellin searching for sweet Colombian booty, you would have returned in a body bag after Pablo Escobar and the drug cartels had carved you up for daring to be a gringo traveling in their country.

Wanted to travel to Poland or Ukraine in 1987 for some sweet EE tail? Good luck trying to sneak into these communist countries that were under the thumb of the Soviet Union, the evil empire. China? Going to China then would have been like going to North Korea today. Oh and the cost of getting a flight to one of these places if you even could get one would have been astronomical. No Ryan Air offering 20 Euro flights from London to Warsaw back then. No men were traveling to these places for anything, let alone pussy in those days. An exotic trip back then was going to London to chase some girls with British accents. Hell, even going to a place like Northern Ireland back then was dangerous as hell ( i was there in 1991 during the height of the IRA bullshit).

Honestly, I would dare say that the problem we have today is that life is too convenient and way too easy. Like Rudebwoy said, there was no internet, no smartphones, no Tinder, hell no computers even, none of this estrogen inducing technology back then to create our special class of pussified men that we are so privileged to experience today. Maybe women were better back then because men weren't so pathetic back then. Back then if you wanted pussy, you had to leave your house, be social, meet girls and work it for a while before you got laid. No apps to have pussy delivered to your door back then. Not talking to women back then was not an option.

To answer the OP's question, I would say technology and having day to day life be so damn easy as a result, has destroyed a whole generation of people. Much of our social ills including social incompetency can be traced to things being too easy. That's why third world girls are still relatively unspoiled but that is changing rapidly as thirsty Western dudes invade these places and technology's tentacles reach into these places.

Honestly, it gets really, really hard to listen to dudes whine about how everything is so bad and so hard these days. Life is never easy, no matter which time you're born into but men today whine more than ever about how awful things are.

Post Of The Day

As I've said before, within a decade it'll likely get remarkably and noticeably harder, just wait and watch. Also, remember that as survival becomes an afterthought, man became more and more insane. Who needs God (just substitute all virtues here for the time being) when you aren't aware of yourself, truly, or your frailties?

Get your passport ready!
