Bachelorism: An Epidemic?

Listen to this post:

Like listening to the audio? You can now get The Book of Pook as an Audiobook! (Over 13 hours of human narration - FAR superior to the machine generated TTS on this site!)

We also recommend checking out Pook's other book, "The Pook Manifesto" Audiobook (Over 15 hours of human narration). It is longer, contains more ideas, and is a lot of fun to listen to. If you like the Book of Pook, you will love this one.


I am tired of online ads for these matching services. Usually, it is a woman lying down almost nude with a huge command of “MATE” on the picture.

So how do these online matching services get the females? Do they have men showing their chest with a huge command on it of “MATE?” No, they get this instead.

Apparently, Bachelorism is a disease.

The world’s number one dating and relationship company, Match.com, is taking a stand against bachelorism, a disturbing epidemic that affects more than 41 million men nationwide(1).

Match.com has thrown its support behind a new campaign, http://www.bachelorism.org , to raise awareness for the causes and cure for this devastating syndrome.

Single men are painted as babies that must be ‘rescued’ from oblivion. This is how many bachelors are seen…as losers simply because they don’t have some girl. What intrigues me is what if someone did the same for single females? What if someone made an ad campaign that made single women to be hysterical and irrational but only a man could ‘save’ them from self- destruction? Do you think that would go over well?
