I've gotten so many questions from women who date men about the current dating landscape and how to navigate it as a feminist. These ladies are feeling disappointed by their interactions with men in general , and their disdain has hit an all-time high in the wake of metoo. The classic model of heterosexual courting is a man showing how strong, wealthy, and sexually capable he is and a woman demonstrating how pretty, docile, and in need of protection she is. So much of online dating is sifting through profiles of people peacocking, instead of taking the opportunity to share their values and what they look for in a partner. If you want to help change this, put that you are looking for a feminist man somewhere on your profile. Make feminism your demand.

I'm out there just like everyone else, a machete in one hand, pocket knife between my teeth, hacking through the dating wilderness, wondering how this all happened, and why I didn't pack bug spray. I've also been covering dating apps for about three years, which means that if I've written about it, I've probably downloaded it.
