This is really neckbeard-y though, it's not really a big deal. Nobody ACTUALLY cares about it. It's kind of like the declining birth rate.

People freak out but this is actually the age of eugenics. I don't know of a single girl who has trouble getting dates or is worried about it, and not many guys are worried about it either. It's the older generation that is upset because things aren't going as planned, but in 10 years robots will replace a lot of jobs, so a declining birth rate is necessary. It's more like evolution.

And actually if you look at Japan they like the declining birth rate -- the problems are just because they have a bunch of retirees that are becoming a drain on their smaller and more efficient economy. But once they die off the rest are expected to get better benefits anyway - more room, etc.

This thread is kind of hilarious though because its a bunch of dudes like "Yeah! We got em! We're desirable! People care about us!" But it's not really true.

I'm not scared of the decline in the population. The problem, at least in Europe, is that the shrinking native population of Europe is being replaced by mostly non western immigrants that don't share the western values and refuse to integrate.

That will lead to major problems in the future and threaten the prosperity and stability of the whole continent.

And before people call me a racist the increased terror threat against Europe and the many terrorist attacks that has already occured or been prevented can't be denied.

Nor can the economic non sustainability of the non western immigrant population be denied. If you still believe in multiculturalism you're in for a very rude awakening in my mind.

This isn't about dating though. Not that you are wrong in what you said, but its irrelevant to the article. The article deals with more of the social implications of marriage.

Tell that to my single 28 year old sister that wanted a family and now can't have kids.

Uh, what? It's not like men in America have disappeared. She can still have a family if she wants to, she can even be choosy! Apparently 70% of men in that age range in America are single so it's not like there's a shortage of them.

If she physically cannot have kids, or she's lamenting that the quality of men available isnt good enough, that's a different story.
