Straight men, if you want to find love you’ll need to do better

Article here. Excerpt:

'Couples psychologist Dr Greg Matos, who authored the article, wrote that women are “increasingly selective” because dating apps offer a vast number of options. “I hear recurring dating themes from women between the ages of 25 and 45,” he wrote. “They prefer men who are emotionally available, good communicators, and share similar values.”

Now, this criteria hardly sounds impossible to meet. If we boil it down, desiring a partner who can be there for you when you need them and treats you with respect is the barest of the bare minimum. If these are “new relationship standards”, I dread to think how much lower the bar was before. But if this means that women are finally realising that they deserve better than toxic, narcissistic men, then more power to us.
The problem is not that straight women have finally realised their worth and are demanding to be treated better in a relationship. The problem is that straight men have not come to terms with their own toxic masculinity and archaic patriarchal values. They will not find their romantic lives improving until they take it upon themselves to dig deeper and find out what it means to be “emotionally available”. Until they learn that being a good partner means being open with your thoughts, feelings and needs, while holding space for your significant other. And until they stop mansplaining and listen for once.'
