It seems like so many men have lost their motivation to compete for success in modern society. I see so many guys who are in their lates 20s or early 30s and do nothing besides hold a mediocre job and play video games and watch sports. And of course, they are then unsuitable mates for women and so that further compounds their depression and need to tune out of society.

Anyone else noticing this?

No. There's nothing wrong with a mediocre job (if it pays the bills) and playing video games / watching sports. "unsuitable mates" lol.

Then why am I hearing so much whining about unequal pay?

When liberals want to punish the successful, I guess you should expect fewer successful people.

Most of the new jobs gotten this month were in the 55 and over crowd.
They don't seem to have a problem finding jobs.
Got to admit it..the boomers aren't slackers and employers know that.

I was married once and divorced once.

Not doing that again. I dropped out of the relationship side of society. Women are not from Venus, they are from friggin Pluto. Hormones rule their minds, not common sense. What they have between their legs and hanging off their chests is not worth the aggravation they cause.

Yeah, I dropped out of society but I haven't tuned out and I work hard and get paid well at my job.

I think what you're noticing is actually the consequence of adding primarily low-paying jobs since the recent recession, and, to a lesser extent, agism being practiced by some members of previous generations who are terrified of more savvy and/or hardworking youngsters presenting an obstacle to their otherwise slothful deceleration into retirement.

Secondly, your 'unsuitable mates' comment carries the scent of either ignorance or envy. Moreover, the only "women" the guys you describe aren't attracting (like most every other group of males, by the way,) are the women who are doomed to an age-based reality check when their aging figures are no longer found desirable by high-earning males that have little taste for anything other than a moist hole and borderline slavish obedience. This is often of little consequence, anyway, to the aforementioned type of women, whose most daunting daily tasks are otherwise limited to carrying shopping bags and remembering to wash their face after the not-so-happy (for them) ending.

Just my opinion.

Well, I guess we know who the defenders of this pathetic lifestyle are.

I worked for a fortune 500 company before retiring. For years I watched brilliant young engineers get bypassed for promotions while the company fast-tracked recent college grads with no experience. Most of those fast-tracked were minorities, (mainly black), and mostly female. It is easy to understand why many of these engineers came to have little motivation and no loyalty to the company.
