Emily Ratajkowski is already disgusted with the modern dating scene

Emily Ratajkowski separated from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard last July. She apparently discovered that he was cheating on her with multiple women. Emily dumped him and I believe she’s already filed for divorce and all of that. Thankfully, she’s never looked back and there’s been no backsliding with Sebastian. Unfortunately, Emily has entered the New York dating scene and she’s trying to enjoy her first real “single girl” time after years spent in a succession of long-term relationships. Emily finds the dating scene in the Roaring Twenties pretty f–king exhausting. Girl, we tried to tell you.

Emily Ratajkowski is over dating men who “don’t know how to handle” strong women. The “High Low” podcast host explained in Tuesday’s episode that she “hate[s]” going out with “men in particular” who “truly think they want” an independent partner.

“They’re like, ‘You’re special. You’ve done it,’” Ratajkowski said, one week after Page Six broke the news that her fling with Pete Davidson ended. “They slowly get emasculated, and they don’t know what to do with those feelings, and they resent you, and then they start to tear you down. And then you’re just back to square one.”

After calling the dynamic “f–ked up and unfair,” Ratajkowski noted that she can “understand dating women” instead and having mutual “respect” in a relationship.

“There might be competition … but it doesn’t feel like somebody’s taking something away from someone else,” the actress, who referred to herself as a “bi woman” earlier in the episode, explained to her guest, Olivia Ponton.

“Weirdly with heteronormative relationships, I feel like that happens,” she added. “The strength and the power is associated with the masculine, and once the woman has that, the man doesn’t know what else he has. But I’m like, ‘How about you just be better at expressing your emotions and being there emotionally? That would be great.’”

[From Page Six]

She’s literally just talking about dating. That’s truly what most single women go through for years as they try to find a dude who isn’t a whiny little B. Guess what? That sh-t hasn’t changed in decades. So many men always get all up in their little baby feelings about how they’re being “emasculated” when their wives or girlfriends are professionally or financially successful. Thus, those are the dudes who neg and suck all the joy out of living. Anyway, I enjoy the fact that Emily has been out in the dating world for less than six months and she’s already microdosed a Pete Davidson relationship and she’s sick of these dudes crying about being emasculated.

    Perhaps if she wiped that superior disgusted look off her face, people would warm.

    • girl_ninja says:

      Or not. That’s her face. That’s like strangers telling women to smile.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        True. I’ve been told to smile my whole life as I have a resting bitch face too lol. But when I’m out and my eyes meet another set of eyes, I smile. In fact, my resting face can look so uppity I purposely smile just to work the damn muscles!

    • StellainNH says:

      When I was young and single, I was told that when I was walking alone, I looked unapproachable, a b*tch. Anytime I walked alone, I had all my defenses up. Being catcalled at a young age, I would put a mental wall around myself to cope with the ugliness. Maybe that is what she does.

    • Wendy says:

      It’s 2023, can we please get over the tired old “if she’s not smiling, she’s a stuck up bitch” mentality? Leave it back in the unevolved Boomer era where it belongs, babes.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        I doubt she’s a stuck up bitch lol. Google her images. All she does is complain and pose. Dating sucks for sure. Her persona might need a bit of tweaking when out and about.

      • Kim says:

        How does that ageism feel? Not all boomers agree with Mabs. Do you enjoy being stereotyped and grouped according to your age?

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Not at all. It makes me mad and small.

      • Wendy says:

        Crucial keywords in my comment: “mentality”, “era”.

        Words not found in my comment: “Boomers”.

      • CariBean says:

        @Wendy: Leave it back in the unevolved “Boomer” era where it belongs, babes.

        You literally said Boomer in your comment. Is this a joke? Where’s the camera?

      • Wendy says:

        @CariBean, I’m not sure how to make you understand that “Boomer era” is different from “Boomers”. One is referring to a specific period in time, the other refers to people. I used one phrase, not the other.

    • Laura says:

      Absolutely not. It’s literally just her face. You actually think she needs to look “nicer” to find better partners?

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Of course not. Nobody NEEDS to be nice to find…whatever. Can we at least deconstruct an itsy bit to determine that kindness is an attribute? I’ve never read a kind word from her about others. And I don’t think my opinion is anywhere close to being accurate because I don’t know her, only what I’ve seen and read. And as this site is fairly open about our gossipy enjoyment and sometimes angst, I’ve considered her vapid for quite some time. I thinks she’s a pouty, unhappy person. Interesting how some posts accrue some form of distaste, which is okay if everyone agrees, but then does a180 for one reason or another. It’s all good. I don’t like this woman. Never have. She does absolutely nothing for her generation but whine and complain about her sexy body lol.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        It’s interesting. (Liberal) male celebrities discussing painful things usually get met with the Dote, Coo, & How Wonderful It Is That He Expresses Emotions routine from older women, while liberal female celebrities who discuss misogyny, assault, and victim-blaming are often archet- er, dismissed by the same people as worthless whiners. I’m not saying there shouldn’t be empathy and respect for males, but females should get the same treatment even when they survive the misogyny and victim-blaming, and don’t have highly publicized breakdowns. Emily may not be the Pollyanna some might hope for, but that doesn’t make her unkind. It’s definitely past time to retire the Immodest Women are Worthless routine as well. This world is too violent for that, and also unnecessary when people have the ability to just avoid following people who aren’t living by the sexual mores they were brought up on.

    I never dated a man who was emasculated by my success. Not even the couple of jerks I dated. My problem was always finding a guy who would support me when I was down, not when I was up. So I don’t know where you’re finding these guys.

  3. Jilly says:

    Damn I love what she says. I have always made more than the partners I have dated and she is correct- they are so cool about you being independant then it goes sideways real quick with them wanting to be more in control or in charge.

    She is truly “dating”!

    • Eleonor says:

      I remember “I like that tou are independent ” early phase, switching magically to “you are too independent I don’t feel important you don’t need me”.

  4. bus says:

    It’s not your typical dating scenario either. The first obstacle is the ‘image’ of her as a celebrity the date will have to drop or move past before they can even figure out if they like her and want to date her. I don’t know anything about her really but maybe she isn’t all that likable as a person? Regardless, dating was always going to be difficult for her: she has an extremely small dating pool. People who think they ‘could’ date her, people she might be interested in, the industry, fame, etc. I mean, slice the human population every which way to account for all the filters and there’s like 50 guys on the potential list and what are the odds of them being ‘good people’?

  5. Pointillist says:

    I hate the word emasculated and it needs to die.

    • Nikki says:

      Unless I literally cut off your balls, you’re not emasculated. You’re just blaming me for your shortcomings.

  6. Valerie says:

    Eh I’ve developed radical sort of empathy fatigue regarding this topic. 5 years ago I would’ve agreed with her but ever since then I feel like I’ve read so many people whine about this particular thing I just ran out of empathy. It’s like when people complain about twitter’s toxicity. It’s true, I agree with you. But Tinder and Twitter are not human rights. No one is forcing you to use them. The world functioned just fine before those things were invented. A woman like Emily will have no trouble finding a partner without any dating apps.

    I’m sorry but I’m just an ass like that at this point. I’ve ran out of empathy for this topic.

  7. HeyKay says:

    Dating, relationships, single parent are all hard work, for most people.
    Getting out and back to dating is odd for lots of us, and the effort to connect gets more complicated I’m certain if you are a celeb.

    IRL, many of us decide that while our children are young, we burn out quickly on dating.

  8. Concern Fae says:

    I went to a workshop with a woman director. One of the things she told us was to really work on finding a supportive partner and that dating as a successful woman was hell. This was in the 90s. She pointed out that if she was a dude who had films at Cannes and Sundance, he’d be drowning in p*ssy, and they’d be fighting to raise his kids. She was a single mother who was focusing on her kids and getting movies made.

  9. NotSoSocialB says:

    I’m disgusted with her MUA.

  10. Emily says:

    She’s right. I know men like that.

    I was in love with a man who said he liked strong women and called himself a feminist (he bragged about taking women’s studies in university … should have been a giveaway). But what he really meant was he liked a strong woman as long as they weren’t as strong or as successful as him; as long as he still got to white knight, show off and mansplain all over her; as long as they “needed” him. Personally, whenever I had a success at work he found some way to passive aggressively minimize it, and anytime I had a problem he condescendingly provided basic and unsolicited advice on subjects I knew more about.

    So yes, even the so-called Progressive men suck.
