    Over the summer I've been writing a book but I'm only at 28 pages. Porn and Vidya have been holding me back. Sometimes I worry I won't be finished before school starts again. Want to have at least 100 pages finished beforehand. Woke up today at 4 to get a headstart. Need to keep focused.

        >What's the book about
        It's about a 40 year old man living through the 2020 Lockdown in New York and seeing all the shenanigans the government pulled off, as well as how fucking crazy people became (hoarding, stealing, freaking out when somebody coughs, et cetera). Right now I'm writing a scene where his bakery gets shut down, causing him to go into an autistic rage where he destroys a bunch of shit in his house.
        >Why did you want to do it?
        Want to build a name for myself, and people tell me I'm good at writing.

        Good luck to you man, I'm trying to force myself to be more disciplined too when it comes to working on my drawing.
        Doing nofap because personally it keeps me energized and more focused, hard part is gonna be not spending so much time on Stardew Valley since I just got hooked on that

        It's so difficult to sit and write when you have an internet connection. Just staying focused is hard enough never mind actually being creative.
        Good luck anon.

      I've been trying to do pull-ups. Not becoarse dey are easy, but becoarse dey are HARD.

      It's just not happening.

      ...I shall be doing more horizontal pull-ups using the lower bar to the right.

      >Over the summer I've been writing a book but I'm only at 28 pages.
      That's awesome, anon. I love writing - but rarely ever do it. I always enter this trance-like state where I'm completely submerged in the story to the exclusion of eating, drinking and fucking going to the bathroom. 5 hours feel like 20 minutes. I can't always slide back into reality, and I'll still be mentally preoccupied with the story when most of all I just want to take a break and focus on something else.

      I started liftan this week for the first time in about 3 years due to relocating to the other side of the planet, adjusting to my new life, getting through seasonal depression etc, what's important is that I'm moving and lifting again, but I'm kinda scared about falling off again and not having the desire or drive to get back to it.

      Keep up the good work! I find that tracking my performance paces me to exercise more and harder. My smart watch keeps me exercising daily (but then I'm a data autist who can't get enough biometrics and visualizations).

    How do I stop thinking about sex? Every time I am looking for something to do even if it's only about 5 seconds of searching my mind just diverts to thinking about booba or my ex's body or some sexual fantasy etc.
    As a result I have what feels like a consant urge to masturbate. If I'm outside it doesn't really happen but at my new job I'm supposed to work from home most of the time. I want to stop these thoughts because I masturbate too often as of now. Attempting nofap just made it 100x worse and made me detest my sex drive which lead to just general self hatred.

      Crack open a cold one for me.

      Still trying to get over her. I realized the other day that until now I've never truly missed anyone, not even my parents (aside from in childhood obviously). I think it's getting better overall though. I've gone from feeling like absolute shit all day to some days I only feel like shit for the first half then sort of okay the other half. I'll be fine again eventually, or at least I won't wince every time I let myself think of her, I just wish it went faster. What a wonderful way to ruin a summer though.
      Oh well, maybe next year will be nicer.

      As long as you're trying it matters, even if you fall off again, just gotta keep wanting it and to not give up trying.

      How long am I going to be this way? That's on my mind.
      How 'bout you?

    Gf is late. She took a pregnancy test today and it's negative, but I'm still scared. The worst part is that I didn't even cum inside, although I was careless about condoms.
    Neither of us wants or can afford to be a parent. She says she has ADHD, don't know if it's real or just justification for shitty behavior and being emotional.
    I'm autistic enough to browse here.
    That's not a good genetic mix. Add to that guaranteed poverty while growing up and we're looking at the next Adam Lanza.

    I know the current algorithm is pushing a bunch of viral "hate women if youre a man" shit, but unironically, a lot of the shit these fuckers say is true and applicable to most women
    try it out for yourselves if youre skeptical

        I used to be the guy that would always be scared to hurt a girl in any manner, always tip toeing around compliments and making sure I didn't hurt them in any way shape or form emotionally
        completely skewed fucking mindset, especially for modern day women, if you're like this, you'll get fucking steamrolled in the current dating market

        my previous long term relationship was destroyed long term because of this, I didn't put my foot down, got constantly directly or indirectly humiliated, but whenever i raised a concerned it was always met with resistance about something else i had done, so i never pushed back
        slowly but surely that woman gained too much ground on me and thought she could get away with absolutely everything, so she cheated
        I found out, when she came running back pretending she didnt do anything I told her, I'm not fucking arguing about shit, to pack her shit and leave

        I've never seen somebody cry and sob so hard in my life I swear BUT, bottom line is, once i healed and looked back at it, it was clear as day what the fuck went wrong
        of course i started watching these youtube guys talk about modern women and modern relationships and everything fucking clicked

        fast forward to today, I met a really REALLY cool girl whom I have a lot in common with, but I put my foot on the ground am currently doing everything opposite i did before, being for a good part emotionally negligent, told her that since man and women are inherently different, me having sex with other women is ok but not the opposite
        told her she can leave if she doesnt agree with my values
        told her once we're more set on the ground together and I have a decent networth to look back at, we can think about me throttling back on this lifestyle and raising kids together, but for now I'm going to take advantage of my late 20's and early 30's

        she hasn't left yet and wants to fuck me wildly.... stop simping for women bros, it's not attractive and you're just feeding THEIR RIGGED GAME

              >I'm always imagining a very specific kind of woman who responds to those things
              to caveat on that, I think the reason a lot of women don't respond to that is because of the extreme feminism STRONG INDEPENDENT POWERFUL women propaganda thats spewed in our faces every day these days
              what those youtubers try to say is that, biologically women always revert to being the submissive sex, and not only that, THEY SHOULD, because down the road those end up being the healthiest relationships

              Well I get that to a certain extent. It's why women always prefer men taller than themselves, they want to feel small(er) and protected.
              I don't know, for me personally I like those "strong independant" types. I don't mean the meme types but the girls who really do have their shit together, outgoing, all that. Maybe it's because I'm a fucking mess. And that makes it even harder to get with someone like that unless they got a thing for "fixing" guys. Fuck me, dude.

    Lately, I had a dispute with the president of the frat I'm in. I corrected him in a group chat and he got very butthurt about it. Then said he was kicking me out of the chats because I've been being "toxic". Now half the frat is on my side and say he's just overreacting, but there are unknowns here that say apparently I've been out of line. Which is only coming up now as a justification to kick me from the chats. Even if I'm allowed back in, I'm not so sure I want to be back in. He's calling me "untrustworthy". I think he's just acting like a teenage girl.

    It's honestly been eating me alive that I've been kicked like this. I have a hard time dealing with negative social interactions and now I feel like a bunch of people are pissed off with me. I've offered to apologize if I've upset anyone but I've gotten no response. It feels annoying to be a situation like this, but at the same time, I don't know what's the best course of action here. I'm not gonna change my opinion but I don't even find it that worth dying. This is all over stupid group chats too.

    Probably a brain dead question but how much fat can I expect to gain on a +500 bulk? I cut down to a decent weight/bf% and maintained for a few months and I feel good but want to start getting some size and strength gains. I’m afraid of gaining too much fat because mine gets distributed to my hips, but, and upper legs so whenever I get overweight my pants feel tight then I get into my head.

    If I do the bulk the right way, and eat really good food, how much might I expect for a 6+ month bulk? My routine is 3 day PPL and 3 days of BJJ.

    Skins a lot clearer and hair is a lot shinier and has much more volume

    Also not getting cold sweats or even sweating in general lately even after intense workouts

    Never want to get back into doing xans and drinking on non saturdays again, feeling great rn despite a slight flu and full of energy I had none of before

      Fuck, I wish I felt the effects of a healthy diet like that. But I don't feel any different eating clean than when I lived on spaghetti and microwave meals. But I don't doubt it's healthier, so I still keep a healthy diet.

      >end of the week

      Imagine not being passionate about ur job that u count days. Every day I wake up happy to go to work, my weekdays r just as fun as my weekend, better actually cuz I don't have to wake up at any certain time.

          Actual NEET. Though I've been volunteering 4-7 hours a week since 2017.
          I'm considering quitting. Things have stagnated and I don't enjoy the company of the fella I currently share my shifts with as much as they guys I used to work with, and a bunch of life shit happened in the last few years - I often find myself ruminating over stuff and wishing I was out hiking.

            You're fine with NEETing it up for all those years? Is it some severe mental health thing that let you get out of work? Asking because I think in total I was NEETed up for maybe 3-4 years inbetween finishing high school and college and work, and during those times I was depressed but at the same time I couldn't imagine doing anything.

              I was granted disability on the grounds of a questionable "atypical autism" diagnosis, but I don't think that's what I have. It was more like learned helplessness and a consequence of chronic disease.

              I did eventually yearn for something to wake up to, which is why I ended up taking a volunteer job. But I've gotten much better at doing something rewardimg with my day on my own time since then. Not least because of exercise. That gives me something to wake up to and significantly boosts my mood and energy levels throughout the day.

    Last week was kinda rough for me, but a whole lot better than a couple of months ago. This community has actually saved me, which I know is kinda retarded since it is IST but hey the results are what matters. My gains are improving and I'm starting to see big changes from the skinnyfat loser I started as. My face has a whole lot less acne which also helps. I'm doing better in classes and excited to start the actual compEng classes next semester. Only bad thing is that my family's economic situation is kinda up in the air rn. We live pretty well off, and money has never been an issue for me, but some changes in my country would mess that up. Thank god I get an American work visa after I finish my degree since I'm studying there. I've also been talking to this girl, I think I'm vibing with her pretty hard, but some of my friends have warned me about her being kinda weird sometimes. Haven't found out for myself, but hey things have been going good so far. Thanks a lot to all of you anons for being as autistic and helpful as you can for a fellow autist. I'll have a moscow mule please btw. (sorry for ranting but it helps me put my feelings into words)

    My daughter turned 1 recently and it just has me thinking of all my flaws. I want to be a good father to my daughter and son but I'm very aware that despite my best intentions I will probably fail in a lot of ways. I want to do more for my wife and kids because she was always there even before I got fit and has been nothing short of a great mother.

    I worry a lot about the future, and whether I'll make the right choices. Lately I just find myself being torn between being a good father for my family and going out and trying to help fix things (regardless of how futile or inconsequential that might be). I can't even enjoy my old pleasures (drawing, learning to code, etc.) anymore since things just seem to get worse by the day.

    I just want to be a great man guys. If not by society's measure I at least want to be for my family.

    In other less depressing news, next week will mark 6 years of training for me. I'm glad I was able to put in some decent time before I turn 30 next year.

    It feels like I'm eternally doomed to be a side character. I have always had plenty of friends and acquaintances. I don't really know why since I'm introverted and kinda stoic/cold, but people seem to really enjoy my company. But nothing more. Nobody seems to ever really feel anything for me. I got rejected in school. The biggest crush of my life also started dating a friend. I got brutally rejected by a female friend two years ago. And now this happened. I don't get it. He is the only person I know, besides me, who isn't in a relationship. And all other people just randomly met compatible partners and hit it off. While I just drift through life as an afterthought to everyone I know.
    I'm just so tired of this cycle of getting my hopes up only to fall back down. The only positive is that this disappointment always turns into rage fueled motivation and every other aspect of my life is going insane thanks to that. But I don't know how long I can being alone.

        Nothing horrible from an outside perspective. We just became close friends over the summer. I once again misinterpreted this as something else. Tried to make a move, somehow never got the opportunity in person. Decided to ask her out over text. Basically laughed at me for misunderstanding things (I still remember the fucking laughing monkey emoji she responded with), immediately told all of our friends and treated me like some wounded animal afterwards.
        Yeah I'm over it, we wouldn't have made a great couple anyway. What hurt me was the reaction of it somehow being ridiculous for me to even consider this. Which is kinda echoed in how my friends treat me in general which is a whole other boring story

          Definitely better in person, it's hard when you really like them to do it in person, but the dread from doing it over text from the one time I did it convinced me never again.

          >Basically laughed at me for misunderstanding things

          Sounds like a cunt.

          That reaction for sure is fucked. But in a way, maybe it also helps because you see a really nasty side of her like that. Makes it easier to get over them, right? Almost makes me wish my last one was worse but she was so nice about it it fucked me up either way.
          And get better friends dude, since you already got a group try to branch out through some of them. Don't get stuck with a bunch of cunts that drain your self esteem.

A recurring thought I have is to literally ask her to be honest and tell me her worst features or something the next time I see her. Obviously it's stupid, but I just wish she was a dumb cunt in some way so I could latch onto that and move on faster.

          What the other anon said is completely true. It's a hard fucking pill to swallow especially if you're really into someone, you just keep coming up with excuses or rationalizing why she doesn't respond or seems vague or this or that. It's cope at its highest. And it's a slow realization of pain when you understand what happened. Even worse when everything seemed good in person, be glad yours was brief and over text mostly.

      42 year old fag here, it's never too late. Broke up with ex in March, reconsidered and asked if we could go to therapy. Nope. Get kicked out of her house, move in with friend and his family, OK but need my own place. Focus on myself and my health. Best shape I've ever been in, 1 hour of exercise a day! Attempting 2 side project for extra income, might fail, but why. not try? Finances are OK, currently in shit job I got because I thought it would help my ex, but that's OK for now. Get off your ass and try something, anything! Who knows, you might enjoy it! I let my deaftest mindset control me for too long. I'm a product of a single mom and never had a positive male role model in my life. Don't give Anon, I know I do every day, but I'll keep pushing forward. WAGMI

            Take anything you can as a source of inspiration. Doesn't matter if it's from a book, movie, game, fucking manga or anime, anything. If it makes you feel inspired, keep it in your mind. And, at least for me, don't go down the cringy social influencer "alpha male" pipelines. Not that I've been down it, but holy fuck those dudes are delusional.

When I see her high bodyfat/acne ridden face due to her poor lifestyle I really start to dislike her. This is why I just need to be alone in my monkmode.

              adderral/ritalin which is what i really need causes me to sink into infinite depression, apparently for some people with dopamine system problems it just wears out your dopamine neurons and permanently makes them work worse every time you take it.

              so now i know that i have years of adderall use too that permanently made me less happy every single time i took one

    I have a salary, side hustles (half my salary) and grant from my parents (half my salary). I can usually transfer all my side hustle cash into stocks & coins as my salary and grant allow me to live comfortably but I was on a spending spree lately due to some holiday shit and now I gotta spend my hustle money until payday

            and truth to be told amongst all these classes I prefer being in the 1%, I am confident that I will not spiral out of control with stupid shit like alcohol etc and can work towards securing myself the same quality of life even if my parents retire by acting smart and advancing my career path, investing etc

      in my developing country medicine is a state-dominated field and even though MDs are always provided decent salaries, in the past 7-8 years the quality of life for state MDs radically dropped to the point of a 35 YO MD making less than a 25 YO software engineer

      like literally, I have a friend group of 8 dudes and one of us is a state sponsored MD, he is the second least earning one and the other dude is a stoner so he doesn't care

    >The Rona is there and everything is closed, she doesn’t wanna meet because of rona
    >We write for the next 6 months
    >I just stop writing her cause I don’t have time for games, she says ok we can meet etc. but declines last minute

    >Tell her to call me and we talk
    >She says, she’s sorry and wants to have contact with me again, say ok cause I’m not a ass or a child
    >That was 10 days ago
    So what do you say, no she won’t write me again because she did the first step that’s how she works and she wants to see if I was serious with having contact with her.
    I don’t wanna be a ass and ghost her but I’m happy without her, also no I don’t have any feelings for her.

            I would say to keep small chat until she loses interest because 1) You literally have a woman to take care of, believe me, you don't want another one, specially because you don't want anything with her 2)She already has a boyfriend, if she's texting you maybe something isn't right, pay attention to that.

            Yeah I don’t really care what she thinks about me, the only reason I wrote her was because my gf said ask her how it’s going and I said ok, but I didint. My problem is that my brain always thinks:

    Why are you guys so obsessed with being happy? The more you covet it the less you’ll have. Happiness isn’t something animals experience in general. It’s just you thinking you’ve achieved something you’ve been indoctrinated into believing you must have and so you’re a mopey cunt when you don’t get it. You compare yourselves to others constantly, that makes you sad too. Cause you don’t mind the 90% of people who have it worse. And while always improving yourself is a good thing, doing so out of envy and greed is pathetic and petty

    I was an unhappy miserable cunt too. I realised that everything that made me sad was due to others
    >stressed out about uni, why? I have my whole life to finish I can take breaks if I want to instead of burning out
    >because I was worried what others would think if I took a semester or two hiatus
    >kept worrying about being with the right girl
    >because do my friends think she’s attractive and funny? Do my parents approve?
    It’s just the constant -what do others think of what I’m doing with my life-
    Well anons 30-40 years from now when you’re old and all the people you sought approval from will be dead. And every day people? They don’t give a shit about your life any more than you care about theirs. Ever see a fat piece of shit when you’re out? You look at him and think, Jesus Christ wtf. Then 5 minutes later you forgot about him and you never think about or see him again. That’s you hundreds of times a day. People seeing you for a second then forgetting about you for rest of their lives.

    Stop being so obsessed with what others think of you and you’ll feel so much better right away. Stop being ashamed of who you are. Sometimes life gets Too much. What you do then Is take an axe a fire starter and some camping equipment and sleep under the stars, and just take out all your frustrations on any piece of wood you find in the forest. Don’t bring your phone.

    The lovely girl that I have been talking to turns out to be promoscus; out of all the time, she has had sex and has only used a condom twice. Today we are supposed to meet at a Hotel and fuck, but I'm having second thoughts. I'm 28, and she is 21. I haven't gotten laid in 6 years, and she has a quality body; I don't enjoy making out with her, I want to get more experience, and she has other friends with benefits.

    There is a girl at work I used to like.
    She seemed quiet and artsy and nice, she talked to me every day and made me feel good about myself.

    A month ago we got drunk together and she started telling me about all the different guys she is toying with. She basically makes guys think she's in love with them, so they'll keep seeking her out and giving her attention, she keeps them essentially in her stable, in reserve for some later date.

    I've cut all contact with her. There is now a girl at work who disgusts me. It feels so uncomfortable to be around her. She keeps putting on this fake sad routine around me, even after I cut the cord, she's still trying to manipulate me, bring me back into her stable.

    Not having it boys, but fucking hell it's so uncomfortable to have to work directly with somebody you hate, who acts like they hate you too.

Third time in a row where they've used the excuse "I'm just not mentally ready for a serious relationship right now". Thought I finally found happiness. My family and friends were so proud. Gonna be so embarrassing to tell them I fucked it up in under 3 months. God this sucks.

    Graduated from University. Got a job lined up. Whole family is proud of me and got a close groups of friends that supports me through everything. YET I can't stop humiliating myself and messaging a girl that just ignores it. We used to be close and fell out. I still like her and I can't bring myself to delete her number and just move on. When I do, I end up getting her number from someone and end up trying to get in touch just to get ignored again. Then she replies within a few days seemingly to keep me on a leash.

    I feel pathetic and can't stop thinking about her when I am alone. How do I stop this behaviour? Lately I have only been happy when I get a notification from her.

      See

      if a person stops communicating with you they dont care about you

      this should be pretty easy to figure out

      she almost certainly fucked some dudes

      you are coping. a person who likes you will never voluntarily stop communicating with you. consider the very idea, it makes no sense at all

      if you are "calling girls out" on behavior it is beyond over in any situation/relationship.

      What the other anon said is completely true. It's a hard fucking pill to swallow especially if you're really into someone, you just keep coming up with excuses or rationalizing why she doesn't respond or seems vague or this or that. It's cope at its highest. And it's a slow realization of pain when you understand what happened. Even worse when everything seemed good in person, be glad yours was brief and over text mostly.

      t. copemaxxed recently

      Fact of the matter is: if you told her you liked her, you know she would reject you. Right? The question you gotta ask yourself is can you tell yourself that it's over and cut her off for good, or do you need her to reject you before you can move on? Even though you know, deep down, she doesn't give a fuck about you, doesn't think about you 1% of how much you think about her. Sounds like to me you need the closure, the rejection. It's gonna suck and you'll probably think about her even more for a while, but it's probably the best way to start moving on.

      >I feel pathetic and can't stop thinking about her when I am alone.
      >Lately I have only been happy when I get a notification from her.
      I was literally there myself up until a little over a month ago, my man, until I couldn't take it any more and I knew I had to get rejected. It's straight copium, living and breathing for that sliver of attention she gives you in some pointless message she doesn't give a fuck about while you sit and rack your brain over how to craft the perfect message that's going to elicit a good response from her. Seriously consider telling her how you feel so you can get bodied and move on. Best to do in person but if there's no chance of that happening, well, texts are awful but what can you do.

    Idk wtf is wrong with me bros. Money doesn’t make me do things like it seems to for other people. Even fairly large sums of money just make me go meh. I mean I want it, I’m not some saint. If I could reach out and grab a fat stack of cash effort free of course I would take that deal. But truthfully, 9/10 times I don’t think the cash is worth all of the running around you have to do to get it. I know this probably means I’m a lazy POS, but honestly I’m really starting to think I’d rather be poor/lower class and do what I want everyday than rich while a slave to the whims and desires of the system/others. Obviously marrying wealth with independence is ideal, but I don’t know if there is a lucrative career that I would feel content with.

    Guys I'm in a seriously weird situation and I have no idea what to do.

    The super QT ex-gym receptionist emo girl with a super fit bod who I had a crush on matched with me on a dating app. She has been SUPER forward and confident and told me straight up she used to think I was very attractive, and I told her I had a crush on her too. She wants to go on a date ASAP, we got it scheduled for next week.

    But this girl is not your everyday thot, her job (don't wanna dox) means she has a pretty large following on social media and has an army of simp orbiters. Like the kind of girl who will get DMs from dudes asking to buy her used underwear. She's smoking hot. Not only this, she's tattooed to fuck and into all obscure shit. I have no tattoos. I'm a completely normal looking guy (good looking, but normal) and I have absolutely no idea why she's into me. I'm sure she could get famous dudes and shit or people who you'd think would suit her more (tattooed social media famous chads) but she seems so forward and keen to go on a date with me. I'm stumped. I've had my share of first dates but I'm nervous about this one. I didn't think I'd be interesting or 'out there' enough for her and it's making me overthink everything.

    What do?

      >Can thousands of years of Christian ancestry be wrong?
      Yes, there are many different religions and philosophies, some much older than Christianity. In the context of religion, almost all of them have to be wrong for one to be right.

      Not saying it isn't a good idea to follow a religion or philosophy. Unless they cause a lot of tension with your already held beliefs, the rituals and mindset can be beneficial.
      Obviously the western world has been built on Christianity so its values will better line up with your everyday life and probably will cause the least tension.

      One advice I would give is that joining a church is good for your social life but don't get taken advantage of. Not saying have your guard up, let people in, but some specific church's can get a cult-like mindset where they do some fucked up thing or do something for money and they sucker in people.

      For example, a local baptist church where I grew up was known as the pedophile church. You would have ~26 year olds dating 12 year olds and the parents were fine with it because since they aren't married it's impossible for them to have sex. So try out multiple churches please.

      My life has been nothing but failure and severe depression as well. Never had any sort of religious influence in my life. Only religion I was exposed to was Judaism from my father's side, but neither he nor I ever did any real religious practice. Also once I became a teenager we barely even celebrated holidays like Christmas or anything.

      Being religious has never even been a consideration for me but given how close I am to suicide I wonder if it if worth trying one, but I fear I am too far gone for it to help at all.

    8 years ended almost 2 years ago. We spoke a couple of times but it was always me who started the convos. I guess it's my fault for not seeing the red flags and kept going with her anyway. She ghosted previous bfs and even some sister and her own father. It was meant to be over, even if her words were different from her actions.

    I feel like having a relationship is completly meaningless nowdays but at the same side I feel lonely, wanna share all my stuff, discover the world and finally raise a family with some perfect qt 3.13 that deep down I know it doesn't exist

It would wreck what little pride I have left, but I might ask my dad if he knows anyone who can give me a job nearby.

    If for nothing else, I hope that I've learned to never let myself sink this low again.

        I graduated and got hopelessly depressed. Packed my shit and moved out without telling anyone, lived in my car for a few months. Cut everyone off. Friends and family.

        Eventually my family had enough of my shit and threatened to report my car stolen so I'd be arrested if I didn't clean up. It wasn't drugs though, I was just totally emotionally paralyzed, and I'd rather be homeless than a burden.

        There threats got to me though, and I let them put me an an apartment somewhere. I've been here for six months now. Last month I started feeling better. Got into meditation. Got over a lot of bitterness I was harboring.

        So now I'm trying to move on. Embarrassed, disappointed in myself. Hopefully it gets better.

    I’ll have a kefir in an 8oz glass please.
    Im in a weird state of mind, not sure if I’m schizo or just very skeptical. But I have this weird feeling that people are out to get me. Like they ask extremely personal questions and it is almost like they are trying to get a read on me. I don’t like it but I’m naturally talkative person so I fall for the bait each time. I only get this feeling because in the past few months I’ve really put my focus on maintaining eye contact with people and perhaps it’s just my own actions backfiring on me. Outside of my business(I earn yield on broken humans basically) I suffer from crippling loneliness. Haven’t had sex in 2 years, and contemplating on hitting up my ex from 4 years ago to see if she wants to fuck. Very horny, gotta be honest here, but last I heard she turned gay. Most of my “friends” are finding their partners or starting families and I feel like a fucking loser. I just want to be a dad. I started bulking again, failed my summer cut so I’m just gonna get as massive as I can. Currently sitting at 26 y/o, 180, 5’9 1/2/3/4 for reps and hoping to reach 210 and hopefully add on .5plate to each of those by my 27th which is in a few months. Kefir has been my go to, and oddly enough is the only thing that brings a true smile to my face aside from gym. Anyways, not sure if I’m developing some kind of mental illness or whatever, but I guess I need to bring myself around more people in my own age group instead of these geriatrics. Perhaps I should start preparing for job interviews once my business becomes self sufficient around mid to late Q3. I’ve always wanted to be a software engineer at one of those Fagman companies.

    I fell horribly out of love with my gf, and I think she never was my type to begin with. My previous one was awful and I wanted something completely different, but now I seem to be stuck with a flabby-looking spineless insecure mess that just makes me tired to be around.
    I should really end it, but she's a good person and I don't want to hurt her.

    Just looking for the best time to break it to her, or at the end of the week, whatever comes first
