Maybe it's due to commitment issues. In that case we can tie it into the shidduch crisis. I'm just thinking out loud here, but maybe if a guy would get a few grand for becoming fleishig....

wait you become fleishig when you get married ???

Benching takes at least five minutes if you say every word. Since many people don't know it fully by heart, it requires obtaining a bencher (or smartphone app). Then, depending on how religious you are, it requires Mayim Achronim and donning a hat and jacket. If you are a male, and were sitting with two other males and having your meal kind of together, that requires making a Mezuman.

It's not an irrational fear. It's a process, and if you are in a particular rush, it's also time consuming.

If you are on an airplane and did not wash beforehand... well let's not even go there.
Its called laziness...

Every frum guy I know hates washing and getting fleishig.

It's ironic when you think about how much kashrus actually regulates what and how we eat...

It does, but it's only ironic because of today's spoiled standards.

I can't remember the last time i had milchig for supper and i usually have fleishig for lunch and quite often for breakfast. I prefer my coffee the way G-d intended, black and dark roasted.
I make a cholent for a thursday night learning program in a community that is mostly baalei teshuvah and it always seems crazy to me how many people would rather skip an awesome (if i may say so myself) cholent for the possibility of cereal and milk at 10PM!  :o :o

I heard it from someone I know who is a Talmud of R' Reuven and has a haskama on his sefer in halacha from him
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
