There’s a shift in priorities

The last couple of stats on women canceling dates with people who wouldn’t put their health first show an interesting and good shift that’s occurring. One study from 2019 showed that when assessing potential mates online, men only asked, “Will I like her/will she meet my requirements?” But women asked “Will I like him?” and “Will I meet his requirements?” Leave it to us to be people pleasers. But not so much anymore. If the stats about women canceling on dudes who won’t play it safe show anything, it’s that we’re looking out for number one more these days. We don’t mind if men find us disagreeable or dramatic for protecting our wellbeing.
