One piece of dating advice you will hear occasionally is to “lower your standards”. One reason its a common piece of dating advice is that it is designed to accuse a man of only chasing after supermodels. Thus, his datelessness is due to being an asshole and completely his fault. In reality, that is not what is happening. Men don’t need to be told to lower their standards because they have already done that. Ironically, this would be good advice for women because they’re doing what men are accused of doing. In fact, telling men to lower their standards is nothing more than a huge case of projection.
When you get past the “unwilling to data non-supermodels” BS, there’s another aspect of “lowering your standards” that is very dangerous. Here is an example that came from another thread asking the denizens of the ForeverAlone reddit if they would rather be single or a cuckold like the previous one I wrote about. One man answered that he would rather be single, and this was a serious response.
Refuse to be abused as a cuckold? Your standards are too high
Refuse to be abused as a victim of small penis humiliation? Your standards are too high.
Refuse to be beaten up and abused by a dominatrix? Your standards are too high.
We know that The Reserves attracts predatory women who want to humiliate and abuse men with few or no options. This is the reason being a cuckold is coming up so much now on the ForeverAlone reddit. Any man who refuses to be abused and humiliated as a cuckold (or a recipient of small penis humiliation, or a recipient of abuse from a dominatrix, etc.) will be shouted down with “your standards are too high”. They will also be told they are not really ForeverAlone because they have the option to be abused and humiliated. There’s a difference between lowering your standards and subjecting yourself to humiliation and abuse, but predatory women and desperate women are trying to smear them together.
