Men are often unfairly stereotyped as being terrible at relationships, which is somewhat harmful to both men and women. It not only devalues men but also somewhat excuses them from being accountable in interpersonal relationships. Also, it subtly encourages heterosexual women to settle for an unsatisfying relationship because this may be as good as it gets. More importantly, women can be equally as terrible at relationships. It is not a gender issue.
Bad at Relationships, or Just Plain Bad?
