The question is what is each and everyone doing to not be part of the problem?
We all have our ideal type, but how willing are we to look outside that ideal ourselves?
There are guys who remain alone because they have a strong desire to land the man of their dreams and won't settle for anything "less".
Two classic examples (none of which seem present in this thread, thank god):
* The average-bodied guy who only likes ripped muscular guys. He whines about how obsessed these muscle hunks are with looking perfect, how they judge others by their body type, and how they never give him a chance to show what a great guy he is. How about he starts going to the gym? Or even better, find another not-so-perfect bodied guy and they could hit the gym together, slowly becoming each other's dream hunk.
* The fem guy who won't stop complaining about how masculine hunks never give him a chance because he's effeminate. Said example clearly has a preference towards masculine mannered men. It's not like there is a shortage of fems, and if he truly cared as little about mannerisms as he thinks others should, he would date a another fem.
Symptoms in both cases:
Laziness, entitlement, and lack of imagination.
Don't try to be a great man, just be a man...
