I recently wrote about the fact that social media may unexpectedly red pill soy boys by providing proof that chicks bang Chads and Tyrones. There is more to this, though. Before social media, or even before the Internet, you were obviously aware that there are young women and old women, and that people get older, but even in your own family there may only have been rather incomplete records of female aging. In the 1990s, there may not have had multiple pictures taken for each month of a daughter’s life, let alone the mother’s. Now fast forward a few decades!
Today, you can connect with an adult woman on Facebook and just move back in her timeline, and you will see what she looked like before she smashed into the wall. On the other hand, as a relatively sheltered kid, you may not have been aware how quickly and how poorly Western women age. Granted, they may not have been aging as poorly as today’s “woke” women. I thus wonder what effects the kind of full disclosure social media gives will have. I think having easy access to a woman’s pre- and post-wall pictures already significantly reduces the willingness of men to settle, instead rather going their own way. However, those are often men who were burnt and who once actively pursued relationships. They may have had a few girlfriends even.
I don’t consider it implausible that a 16-year-old boy could add his teacher on social media, and discover that ten years ago she was pretty hot. He then looks at his female peers and realizes that they only have a few good years before their looks will decline precipitously. I think the best outcome would be if young boys looked at their female peers and made the obvious conclusion, i.e. if those women don’t want them right now, they just focus on their education and career, and once they are older, they’ll look for a young woman. If you want to settle down, that is the only plausible approach to dating anyway.
I also wonder if social media will lead to women getting even crazier. Again, before social media and ubiquitous smartphones, a woman would look in the mirror and think that she is a beautiful snowflake, day after day after day, despite the fact that she has been falling apart over the last few years. She may have had a few pictures of herself from events like her 18th birthday or her college commencement. Today’s woman in her mid-to-late 20s, on the other hand, will have access to thousands of pictures of herself. She can thus study in intricate detail how much she has aged, and how much more unattractive she has gotten over the years. That must make for a rather depressing activity. In comparison, guys can look back at their timeline and see that they are doing better and better.
