Apathy of Attraction
I see it everywhere: girls are basically throwing themselves at guys but the guys aren't catching. It happened to me just the other day. This really cute girl was hitting on me pretty ruggedly after a show, she asked for my number and gave me hers, but I have no desire to call her. There was nothing wrong with her; she was exactly my type: cute, funny, and short, but I just feel nothing. New Years eve I got propositioned by at least three different people to start 2009 with a "bang" (two of which were pretty cute), but I rejected all of them. I am completely apathetic towards everyone - which is weird because I used to get crushes on every cute girl I saw and even if I didn't ask them out I would think about asking, or at least give a good old staredown or something.
I don't know if it's just because I'm getting older and maybe my libido is slowing down, but I think it more has something to do with this concrete cage we live in - something in the water or advertising or alien conspiracy or who knows what. It seems like more and more people I know are just giving up. And I've overheard enough conversations to know that the girls are really frustrated by it. No one is willing to step up and be a man. Maybe it's just the hipster aesthetic or something, or maybe the human race is doomed (or probably both). What do you think?
