Mark Webster Mark Webster is an old school Australian who is dismayed by political correctness, the state of the modern woman and the decline of his once beautiful country. He believes the collapse of the family unit is directly attributable to feminism and cultural Marxism. Sadly, the average man seems blissfully unaware of the negative impacts this has on his motivation, testosterone, and social skills. How many of the hours spent gazing at a screen is simply wasted time a man could dedicate to improving himself and enjoying life? Sadly, more often than not, many of us take the easy option — the online option — rather than taking the more challenging, meaningful and fulfilling path. Along with social media, internet dating is one of the prime time wasters in the world today. Both are downright unmasculine things that quite frankly you can do without.

It is the emotional wasteland of nothingness stretching mile after forsaken mile. It is darkness and despair and the endless echo of loneliness. It is oppressive and violent and vile. Perhaps even worse than the desperate sadness itself, is that depression lives in hermetically sealed rooms with foil over the windows, curtains drawn, lights yanked from their fixtures and doors closed and nailed so tightly shut that it feels like the eternal darkness of night will never brighten into day again.

Is there something wrong with our society, when a quarter of our women have to be pumped full of drugs, just to make it through the day without slitting their wrists in a bathtub? Unlike illnesses caused by viruses and bacteria, depression is something the human body does to itself. The clinically depressed brain chooses to skimp on dopamine and serotonin production, because it believes — based on the previous reproductive payoffs of thousands of generations of evolution — that doing so is adaptive.
There are several possible evolutionary explanations for depression , such as the psychic pain hypothesis: According to the psychic pain hypothesis, depression is analogous to physical pain in that it informs the sufferer that current circumstances, such as the loss of a friend, are imposing a threat to biological fitness, it motivates the sufferer to cease activities that led to the costly situation, if possible, and it causes him or her to learn to avoid similar circumstances in the future.
Proponents of this view tend to focus on low mood, and regard clinical depression as a dysfunctional extreme of low mood. The Analytical Rumination Hypothesis: This hypothesis suggests that depression is an adaptation that causes the affected individual to concentrate his or her attention and focus on a complex problem in order to analyze and solve it.
As a result, depressed individuals have been shown to ruminate, reflecting on the reasons for their current problems. Feelings of regret associated with depression also cause individuals to reflect and analyze past events in order to determine why they happened and how they could have been prevented. For instance, insomnia enables conscious analysis of the problem to be maintained by preventing sleep from disrupting such processes.
Finally, for social partners who find it uneconomical to respond helpfully to an honest signal of need, the same depressive symptoms also have the potential to extort relevant concessions and compromises. More specifically, depression is a means by which the body signals to itself that something is wrong with its current approach to life. Remember, your body is your best friend.

As I mentioned, there are exceptions — there is a group of guys who prefer older women, and there is a group of women who is uniquely attractive despite being older. But denying that a significant age difference is an issue is like denying that a typical woman wants to be with a guy who is taller. Many younger men appreciate the wisdom, intelligence, reponsibility and maturity an older woman brings to the relationship. Most younger men in this study, preferred to date years older than their own age.
You underestimate how many younger men are tired of the games women their age play. Again, there are exceptions, but relying on it is a risky proposition, to say the least.
