A single woman has revealed her frustration with Australia’s dating culture, complaining that she is still often let down despite her “extremely low” standards.
Daniellefrom Sydney, shared that dating a millennial is tantamount to the bar being “in hell”.
The late 20s woman has had several failed dates with men in her town and Down Under in general.
Danielle revealed how she was recently ‘devastated’ when a man opened the car door for her on a first date abroad, and how she could never expect such chivalry from Australian men.
“I really have a hard time dating this generation,” the frustrated woman said.
Danielle shared her exasperation in a now viral video.
“I don’t know if it’s a whole generation thing or if it’s just the men in my town or the men in Australia,” she said.
“I went on a date overseas and was absolutely floored when this man came to pick me up, got out of his car and opened the door for me to get in on the passenger side.”
She added, “I sat with it for a little while. How low are my f**king standards that turned me on? It’s truly sad!’
Danielle shared that the man “turned out to be a wanker,” but she was still glad he made the effort to open the car door for her.
“We’re taking baby steps,” she finally said.
Many men were offended by Danielle’s statements and shared their opinion on the matter.
“Personally, as a man, I’ve learned that the harder I try for someone, the more it pushes them away. Dating isn’t worth it these days,’ one wrote.
‘Why on every date I always pay for everything and then I ghost? This is so abusive,” said another.
“Some of us still value chivalry, but many of us burned it,” one man revealed.
“Everyone is happy to raise others’ awareness of ‘red flags’ rather than spending this time working on themselves,” wrote a fourth.

But other women agreed with Danielle and also criticized the dating scene in Australia.
“I was impressed that an Englishman didn’t try to sleep with me straight away,” said a Melbourne woman. “He actually wanted to hang out with me first – the bar is really low.”
Another Australian woman said: ‘I’ve been overseas and men have come out of the walls to buy every woman drinks. At home, they would charge me for the first round.
‘Yeah Australian men suck. Every man in Europe I’ve dated has been amazing. I refuse to date Aussies. The bar is so low here,” one woman wrote.
