A poorcel is someone whose poverty has been a major factor behind their inceldom.

One study found that women are 1000 times pickier on the issue of a potential partner's wealth than men.[1] Women's choosiness about men's resources may have evolved from their weaker stature and inability to survive on their own in the ancestral human environment.[2]

A common poorcel saying is: "If I got $1 every time a woman said I wasn't her type, I'd be her type."

History[edit | edit source]

In the 1800s, Punch Magazine (a satirical outlet) identified poverty as one of the primary reasons for inceldom:[3]


It's OVER if you're poor[edit | edit source]

One interesting conclusion of the study below is that it doesn't really seem to matter if one makes $1 per year or $20k per year in the dating scene. All those men have it hard. The main differences in mating success vis-a-vis money emerge in the 50k-100k range.


A US longitudinal study found that the low income men were the most likely childless, while there existed a positive association between greater income in men and the likelihood of having children. Personal income was however, negatively associated with the number of offspring for women, likely (in part) due to women's desire for economically hypergamous relationships.[5] The authors of the study concluded: "If female (and not male) choice determines who fathers children, then it appears that women in the U.S., as do women in other countries, are more likely to choose higher income men as the fathers of their children."

Factors[edit | edit source]

The following are a few factors pertaining to poverty that may hinder a man's chances in the love department:

  • his poverty makes him self-conscious around women
  • he can only attract conservative women, but these women require marriage - something he can't afford
  • he's too broke to go out
  • he's too broke to afford a date
  • he's too broke to afford nightclub entry fees
  • he's too broke to afford drinks, restaurants, etc.
  • he's too broke to live somewhere that isn't with roommates or (worse) his relatives

Women deem you trash[edit | edit source]

Despite poorcels being among the most pitiable members of society, considering they're both poor and lonely, pity often doesn't reach them because (a) they're typically male and male disposability trumps other emotions and (b) because society doesn't accept the following blackpills: Hard work doesn't always pay off. Furthermore, egoists, who constitute a large portion of the human population refuse to accept the following blackpill: humanity isn't as selfless and altruistic as they make themselves out to be.
