== Potential mismatches ==
* '''Arranged marriages vs free mate choice''': Historically, arranged marriages were often the norm, so today's dating world may mismatch innate expectations that we may evolved to have for our parents to be involved in partner choices. In a large sample of hunter-gatherer societies, 70% primarily practiced arrange marriage,<ref name="apostl">https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1474704919887706</ref> and also in medieval Europe arranged marriages were the norm.<ref>http://www.dfwx.com/medieval_cult.html</ref>
* '''Death of male coalitions''': Cross-cultural evidence points to men forming male coalitions, organizing in [[dominance hierarchies|competence hierarchies]]<ref name="cooking">https://incels.wiki/w/Scientific_Blackpill_(Supplemental)#Women_were_historically_predominantly_involved_in_cooking_and_they_never_dominated_men</ref> in order to extract resources<ref>https://carlsonschool.umn.edu/sites/carlsonschool.umn.edu/files/2019-04/baumeister_et_al_2017_j_econ_psych_competing_for_love-_applying_sexual_economics_theory_to_mating_contests_1.pdf</ref> and monopolize the women of other men.<ref name="apostl"></ref> Hence the entire concept of women entering these male coalitions and working side-by-side with men, as well as [[romance|romantic]] relationships in terms of equal romantic investment, are evolutionary novel, and possibly corrupt epistatic pathways in the development of male behavior.<ref>https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-030-32984-6_7</ref> Women have rarely ever been individuals themselves, but merely [[sex drive#Female_passivity|passive]] motivators for male [[intrasexual competition]].<ref name="cooking"></ref><ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnEFt20qe0o</ref>
* '''Affirmative action for women''': Women have never occupied higher status than men,<ref>https://incels.wiki/w/Scientific_Blackpill_(Supplemental)#Women_were_historically_predominantly_involved_in_cooking_and_they_never_dominated_men</ref> so men getting [[mog]]ged by women left and right may be a source of great confusion and [[shy]]ness in men. In women, combined with their [[hypergamy]], this also causes a mismatch as they naturally expect to find men more dominant than themselves, and rather [[femcel|stay singles]] when failing to find a partner who matches their expectations (see [[hypergamy]]). Women have always been dependent on men, but today, they can live entirely off of the state, so they have less incentive to pair bond with men.
