    Taken guys flood the dating market, making it more difficult for single men

    This will be an unpopular opinion - but I do think it is true. I will say it's more likely on online platforms than in-person, but every female friend constantly comes across married guys or guys with GFs on Tinder, apps etc. And that's the guys who admit it, doesn't include those who do not. And while some women certainly do those, there's no way it's a proportional number.

    So we have an influx of guys who already have someone, trying to get with more women. It also explains why it always seems like the guy to girl ratio is absurd.

    Stay the fuark off dating apps.

    Srs.

    Of course taken dudes are going to flock to those apps. They're low effort and full of trash. Trash attracts trash.

    There's literally 0% chance of meeting someone quality on Tinder. Zero fuarking percent.

    I would bet that a solid majority of girls have been on Tinder or some app at some point.

    Tbh there’s several factors that make the dating market utterly chite nowadays. To list a few:

    a) Taken men and/or highly attractive men are monopolising the available women.
    b) ALL men are gunning for women within a certain age range (18 - 35 i’d say).
    c) Slim/slender women are highly sought after and rarer than they’ve ever been. Perhaps i’m biased but I think this one is a huge factor.

    Can confirm there are a lot of married/relationship guys on tinder.

    Some claim open marriage/relationship and some outright say they are looking to cheat.

    I would bet more than half just hide their relationship status too. The real total number must be much higher.
    I just know every female friend constantly comes across taken men, in real life too... but dating apps just have an enormous number.

    Yeah agreed.

    And I have noticed in the last year or so there are a LOT more open marriage/open relationship profiles and also couples profiles seeking a third.

    This must be becoming more socially accepted because I didn’t see that many a few years ago. Also the term “ethically non monogamous” is in a lot of profiles recently too.

    That has been the case since the beginning of time. Yes, online dating has made it easier for high-quality taken males to cheat. But even without these apps, you'd be competing against them. A female friend of mine, who doesn't use dating apps at all, got duped by a married man a couple months before corona happened. It was some hiking event with members of her gym.

    You would be competing. But not to a severe extent.
    I'm just pointing out why the numbers are so insanely swung in one direction.

    There are tons of married/relationshipped men on dating apps. Most have headless pics, it's a clear giveaway. There were some that had face pics though, which I thought was pretty crazy.

    And that's why online dating is so difficult for the single guy. Cause he's competing with an enormous number of guys that already have someone. It's pretty basic math.

    Also, you're talking about people that were honest about it to you. The solid majority will claim to be single obviously. Which kind of tells you what the real total number is, and why men:women ratios are so ridiculous on these platforms.

    Yeah, I asked right up front why no face and they were all honest with me, except one twerp who said it was because of work. Went on a date with him and then found out from a co-worker that he wasn't single. His name was pretty rare and she was like, I know his girlfriend! Then she looked on FB and saw engagement party pics. Funniest part was she worked at the same company as me, but in a different building. That was pretty ballsy of him.

    I also know of a girl at my hair salon that got totally fooled by a married guy. He had an apartment in the city so she had no clue he was married until one day at the salon she was talking to someone about her boyfriend and either said his name or showed a pic and the woman was like, he's married with a family. Oof. Poor girl.

    Keep in mind these incidents are just a small minority. Vast majority of guys who have a gf/wife will be doing this and never run into issues. A lot of it is due to online dating.
    Then single guys get ignored just due to the math and numbers.

    Yeah, true. Looking back at when I was online dating, there were some guys who were further away that I said I wasn't interested in that distance with dating and they said they'd come to me. Sounded fishy for sure and that's definitely not the type of relationship I wanted.
