            You are the example of the man who never grew a spine and never saw his will enacted upon the world. You are the man who has been made conciliatory, submissive and weak by the feminine frame in which your formative years evolved. There is no satisfaction in a compromise, there is no victory in a stalemate, there is no domination in a mutually beneficial agreement.
            You sound like a guy that's been totally domesticated and tamed by a woman, or even worse, by the feminine zeitgeist of modern society.
            Shape the world according to your will. With your words, actions and perseverance you can literally mould the world to fit your vision. Every great man in history has done so.
            Either that or admit you are a follower, a sheep, a goyim, and stop dispensing out this two bit so-called "wisdom" to your natural superiors. It's really that simple.
            And there's obvious nuance in my response. Yes, self improvement is always possible, yes mistakes are always made. But once you've settled into a true, genuine and rightful view of the world, to think that you could so easily be swayed to change yourself in that regard betrays a deep lack of self confidence and self criticism - quite literally, a lower state of awareness and consciousness, a less evolved and distinguished identity.
            Check yourself before saying such nonsense or I'll be happy to.

    I'm in my grindset/israeli phase now. Took a job on Saturday as a weekend bartender. Should be an extra $200/week equalling an extra $800/month on top of my existing job. Could be more as it is located in the Beverly Hills of my city. Need to find a way to make money through the Internet. I'd even do OF if I was IST enough. Maybe another year. IDGAF any more. Give me shekels. I've played with the idea of making meme of the week shirts. That Chinese beaver seems to be popular now. I got fricked in 2021 and now there is nothing but money.

        I work for boomer corp. There is no progression. I either use it as a resume builder or wait until I have my hands around their necks and squeeze and choke every penny out. The bartending is to help me learn to socialize with normies. Learn how they talk and learn my own way of communicating with them. If the position pays more as time goes on then I can't complain.

        I appreciate the nice words, goy.

    As a guy who used to struggle with girls I'm gonna say this. Getting in shape and looking good will help but it's not a guarantee for attracting girls. At most it'll get your foot in the door. If you're still unable to spike her emotions after that point she will quickly lose interest.
    Women are emotional creatures, they need you to make them feel butterflies. Attraction isn't a race of who's the best looking for them, it's who makes them feel the attraction.

    Female attraction boils down to this. Does this guy give me emotional spikes? That's it. Why do you think there's so many guys who don't have shit going for them but they're able to get hot girls? It's because these guys figured a way to give them emotional spikes

    How to give them emotional spikes. There's positive and negative some girls react more to negative and others react more to positive. It's a good rule of thumb to be more positive and fun to start off and you can do some negative ones once in a while

    Examples:

    Generally you want to be the fun guy who's a good time
    You can convey this with social proof, competence, health, resources and resilience.

    All of these examples lend themselves to the guy who is fun to be around. A fun guy who is the life of the party will have social proof (friends that vouge for him being cool, people who are excited to see him)
    Competence is essentially your ability to move through social interactions. Think of it as being smooth, knowing the right thing to say, and most importantly saying it correctly.
    Most of you have the health aspect down but that's something the girl wants to discover for herself, it's not something you show off to her.
    Resources ties back into social proof but also your finances. Again dont show off your money if you have a lot, let her discover it for herself.
    Resilience is basically how you handle stress. Can you be a sturdy foundation in the midst of a chaotic mess? Can you remain calm when you don't want to?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      You most likely already have one or two of these things, you just gotta find your way of conveying them to the girl in a fun and natural way. Takes some time sure but after talking with girls for a few weeks it'll all start to make sense.

        >specific
        dunno bout that but anything you can do to not be boring, show her that you’re funny, show her you can befriend anybody, show her that you’re adventurous. go out drinking and challenge a random dude to a drinking contest, and win. go out on a date and make whoever you interact with laugh in some way or make them feel good with compliments. take her to a carnival and win her a prize and try your ass off at a ball toss, show her you really wanna win for her. idk homie, it all depends, but just do anything you can to make sure YOURE NOT BORING and that you are sociable
        Also make sure that she knows you know she’s beautiful. compliment her. kiss her hand. treat her like a lady even if she’s a tinder bawd, they all want romance and the ones who know they don’t deserve it honestly appreciate it more.
        dedicate 9-12 hours over 2 days and watch some romantic comedies/actual romance movies and try to emulate that shit. they all have the same plots in the end of the day. they all wanna be treated like princesses and the center of your universe, at least in the beginning. don’t be boring, be attentive, make her the priority of the date, not you getting your dick wet.

        im phonegayging but if i get a chance i could write novels on some of this shit because i’ve unironically had a lot of female friends and they all express the same shit. they will never directly tell you what they want/expect because to them, you figuring it out is part of the game, but i feel like i’ve figured it out a bit. hopefully it helps a bit. they want their lives to be a romance movie where the guy is successful funny not boring adventurous etc etc

      Something I have always lacked is the ability to talk about myself, my accomplishments and things I have done. Especially IRL with people I don't know.
      It is very easy to come off as boring, and I have never learnt this skill (among other social skills).
      Any bros found anything that helped besides going to the bar and getting drunk?
      I've started writing things down as i think of them, such as my qualities and things i've done.... almost like im preparing for a job interview.

      Unironically my note taking is how i managed to get a GF, as i saw something interesting to try or do, anything kind of romantic or sweet i saw other couples do or i thought of myself I would write them down.
      I managed to get a girl interested through kindness, and i went through most of my list/notes with her and even lived with her for a time.
      What did me in was that I stopped trying to find new things(to keep her entertained), and I think my "negative ones" were the wrong type caused by my lack of social skills and being an introvert.
      I've recently hit the bottom of both fitness and wealth, lets see if I can get them back while I work on the social stuff.

      >had barely any time for friends, and lost them all.
      >managed to become first rank out of 800 kids, score 1500+ on the SAT.

      >write a frickton of application letters and attended tons of virtual tours that took up the entire summer
      >applied during the BLM summer of love
      >got rejected from nearly every program, later find out it was heavily influenced by the political climate
      >get accepted into one college program
      >thank frick, now I don't have to do as much anymore
      >still work hard academically and do some rare extracurriculars
      >make a lot of new friends and engineer tons of friend groups
      >win awards and go above and beyond program requirements
      >sing praises of the program to everyone,
      >last step is the interview.
      >prepare well for the interview, and it seemed to go quite well
      >get called up a few weeks later. I'm dismissed from the program, with no way to get back in
      >An interviewer decides of all of the program, they wanted to shitcan only me.
      >feel betrayed, especially since I knew a lot of the other people in the program were shady as frick or explicitly never wanted to be in the field
      >back to where I started, this time I have to meet an even harder standard
      >nearly all friendships died around the same time. They started to move on to other friends or just without me.

      I don't know bros, all I got left is lifting and my hobbies. I worked my ass off for 5 years to avoid being stuck here. During those years it was like everything in my life hinged on getting into the program, and it was ripped away in the span of an hour. Everything I sacrificed amounted to nothing.

      that's some sudoku fuel, you've got the skills and the drive, brother. Keep pushing that rock.

    I haven't even had sex since then and even though im seeing a new girl for the last 4 months I'm still celibate because I tried turning to God for my sins but it's a really hard battle. Btw the new girl is very good character but low energy and mid af

    This is gonna be really pathetic and sound weird, but I don’t know who else to talk to about this. I promise this is not meant to be a coomer post. Please don’t make fun of me.

    The recent news about this woman has actually been a pretty strong hit to my self esteem. It’s not because she’s a woman that’s cooler and more accomplished than me, it’s because I know neither she nor any other woman of that caliber would ever be interested in me or want me around.

    I regularly struggle with self-esteem issues, especially around girls, but I’m very self-destructive about it. I have a bad habit of watching footage of female powerlifters, bodybuilders, or women who are heavily accomplished in some way, and then either jerking off to it or letting it crush my attitude for the rest of the day, usually both.

    I know there are men out there who are into being demeaned and pathetic, but I swear that I’m not. I wish I wasn’t like this. I wish I could just be happy for other peoples accomplishments and not compare myself to them so much. Truthfully, I’m very attracted to these kinds of women, and I have this feeling that even if they were “better” than me, if they liked me, then I would just feel alright. But I want to stop letting this shit get into my head and rot my brain and my spirit.

    Anyone have any advice or suggestions?

        Got it, thanks.

        Stop fapping or at the very least limit it to once a week. If you're fapping more than once a week you have too much time on your hands which is most likely the biggest contributor to your low self esteem.
        To raise your self esteem pick something you've always wanted to do and don't put it down until you succeed at it

        I wanted to talk to this woman today, flirt and all, but what kept me from doing it was other people being present at the same place as us. They were alone with phones in their hands, so our conversation would have been heard.
        Apart from being IST so people can think I can get away with doing this, what other things would you recommend I do to make this "fear" disappear?

        Stop jerking off, for a while to the things you normally do, or stop jerking off for a while period. Try to distance yourself from women's powerlifting and bodybuilding content as well. Forget about it.

        You guys are right, the fapping is definitely part of it. I have been letting myself indulge in it a lot recently, and it's hard to let go of the temporary pleasure for long-term peace.

        >I know neither she nor any other woman of that caliber would ever be interested in me or want me around.
        Literal self-sabotage, stop being a homosexual. If getting pussy is your only goal in life then you have already failed. You've already identified the problem, do something about it instead of feeling sorry for yourself.

        >If getting pussy is your only goal in life then you have already failed.
        Pussy is not the only goal in my life. If it were, I would've already gotten it. There is a difference between simply getting pussy and achieving and maintaining a long-lasting, fulfilling relationship.

        https://i.imgur.com/TE4Wgaf.jpg

        Become the kind of guy those women would want around.
        Get off your couch and do something for once. Pick up a book and read, do some math, go to college.
        Be something, someone.

        I need to mention some details I neglected in my original post. I began seriously lifting and pushing myself to do difficult things about a year ago in order to do exactly what you and others are describing. I've even picked up long-distance rucking, and am currently working towards a goal of 40 miles with 45lbs. I took my studies more seriously and have recently graduated with a BS in Biology and am currently preparing for the DAT. To put it simply, my life would appear to be "together," but the feelings and frustrations I described in my original post keep coming back occasionally. I just want it to stop. I want to feel secure and to stop beating myself up.

        you need to learn to love yourself. you only compare yourself to others constantly because you feel uncomfortable with who you are and never learned to love yourself. because you have no self love you can't motivate yourself or imagine yourself succeeding or being good at anything and this creates a self reinforcing downward spiral. this mental state is hell and has probably been strongly imprinted on you from childhood because your parents' love for you was conditional so you will be resistant to breaking out of it but you have to.

        Yes, this is exactly what I'm talking about. I wouldn't say my parents love was conditional but I definitely had to perform and meet expectations growing up. My parents have always been there for me but I rarely heard clear words of encouragement or praise when I accomplished something.

        I was also picked on a lot by girls growing up. I had weird friends when I was young and I always got roped in with them as some kind of freak when I was never really like them. Consequently, they'd call me ugly, gag, talk to me like I was stupid, etc. It really affected me. If you combine that with the myriad of dates I've been on that never actually led to a real relationship then you can see why I feel that getting the kind of high caliber woman I truly want is so unattainable to me.

          I guess that’s true, and the dubs confirm it. I’d rather be able to see women as something other than my enemies though. I know that sounds cucked but men and women are meant to be together and need each other, society has just completely erased that concept out of peoples minds.

          i think we are similar in ways. you have to learn to actively combat your internal negative self reinforcement. that voice that tells you negative things is part of you but it was put there by other people and bad experiences; you can get rid of it and let that space be occupied by a realistic, positive vision of yourself that knows what you are capable of, is proud of what you have achieved, and is at peace with your flaws. this article is short but i have found it is one of the best on this problem and the strategies to combat negative reinforcement have helped me: https://www.artofmanliness.com/character/behavior/the-3-simple-steps-to-stopping-negative-self-talk/ . you seem to be doing great and have a grasp on what it is you are doing to improve yourself and your life and what you want to do, your problems are mental blocks that as i said in my previous post seem to be the kind that are deep rooted, from childhood or early adolescence, and don't make sense and are frustrating to deal with as an adult. your perceptions of yourself, other people, and how you interact are warped even if you don't think they are. you place other people up on a pedestal above you and never miss an opportunity to put yourself down, even if you don't think you are doing that. all this does is hurt and isolate you and as with negative self reinforcement just creates a toxic feedback loop. i don't know what your experiences might have been that imprinted these behaviors but they are often things we try to bury or repress. a book that has helped me with examining these patterns in myself is "no more mr. nice guy" by dr. robert glover: https://www.amazon.com/No-More-Mr-Nice-Guy/dp/0762415339/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1705980723&sr=8-1 . if youa re put off by the title don't be, it's really a very insightful book that gets at all aspects of life. sorry it took so long to reply fren, i am here for you.

      Stop fapping or at the very least limit it to once a week. If you're fapping more than once a week you have too much time on your hands which is most likely the biggest contributor to your low self esteem.
      To raise your self esteem pick something you've always wanted to do and don't put it down until you succeed at it

        I need to mention some details I neglected in my original post. I began seriously lifting and pushing myself to do difficult things about a year ago in order to do exactly what you and others are describing. I've even picked up long-distance rucking, and am currently working towards a goal of 40 miles with 45lbs. I took my studies more seriously and have recently graduated with a BS in Biology and am currently preparing for the DAT. To put it simply, my life would appear to be "together," but the feelings and frustrations I described in my original post keep coming back occasionally. I just want it to stop. I want to feel secure and to stop beating myself up.

      I wanted to talk to this woman today, flirt and all, but what kept me from doing it was other people being present at the same place as us. They were alone with phones in their hands, so our conversation would have been heard.
      Apart from being IST so people can think I can get away with doing this, what other things would you recommend I do to make this "fear" disappear?

      Stop jerking off, for a while to the things you normally do, or stop jerking off for a while period. Try to distance yourself from women's powerlifting and bodybuilding content as well. Forget about it.

    I had a dream I was in some kind of hippie commune and they showed me this drug they made/were using but it was super hardcore and they were babysitting me the first time I took it. At some point the camp we were in was attacked and we had to pack up at night and were refugees but I never saw what we were running from. I remember that the women were polyamorous and we all shared girls.

    I'm turning 26 this year and got my quarter life crisis.
    I know it's not too late to start but man, I dread the future because I'm going to make the mistakes most people did when they were younger at my age. I've never been to uni and only got my hs diploma at 22. I'm not dumb, I had a minor health problem and was forced to attend a special ED school with blind people, autists, etc. I'm not one of them but everyone in that school got disability bucks. They don't pressure you, you can stay there forever but I got anxious and only started applying myself around 20.
    I'm just angry at how my family robbed me of my youth. I don't care if I can live comfortably as a NEET we weren't mean to live this way.
    If they die and I had to get a job I wouldn't mind, frick them tbh
    >treasure your parents
    You don't know what I've been through, I only treasure the financial stability they provide. I hate to say it but I'm on my cringe Machiavellan prince pace rn, It's not me thinking I'm the MC, I'm just angry at the world fr (real).

      Bro I got held back too for eye problems. I had to get 2 surges to stop regression. Still can't get license at 27. My family was dog shit. Abusive and poor. Couldn't pay for health and never cared about a thing.
      I say use the financial stability to get a job and pursue a career. Many places will pay for you to further educate yourself for a related degree. It's what I'm doing at a bank.
      Ngl dude. I hate life and I'm very alone, so my advice might not be the best. The security of parents would've made my life easier and probably happier at least.

        Your advice is exactly what I'm trying to do, I can go to uni rn but not having worked a day in my life and living as a neet is fricking me up and I need to get over that. I know it looks like I'm just a privileged lazy neet to people who meet me because they see my family and think I was born with a silver spoon. The truth is, those families always have some drama behind the image they project and It's tiresome going to birthdays and family reunions where they act passive aggressive. I'm traumatized (not only mentally) but It is what is it and I have to get over it. I try not to be ungrateful because I've never been forced to work and in fact I could get a job through nepotism but it's a pride thing for me to try to make it on my own. That's why I said I wouldn't mind if they die and I'm forced to work at a call center or something. As grateful as I am, it doesn't get rid of the loneliness. thanks for the relatable post and good luck.

    Doing pretty good. Pulling 40hrs a week as an intern, also getting a second job. New car, ran a 10km today. Reading a lot.

    Realizing that a simp is literally the male version of a bawd. Like if you create a structure of values describing the positive masculine, a simp would be one probable archetype resulting from a neglect of duties. And even if it’s hard to draw criticism of a simp according to standards in the media, or even the Christian church, it’s really a terrible and disgusting state to find yourself in.

    Having a hard time breaking out of that groove though- it seems hard to do for it’s own sake. A lot of manosphere books and podcasts appear to pursue either false or compensatory ends. I think to really transcend from the bipolar dysfunction of repressing instincts and then overcompensating, you need to have a family or some kind of responsibility that compels you to act with purpose.

    How do you actually get to meet people, if not through work/school?

    I recently landed a government job (pretty good pay, have to do pretty much frickall), and I had to move across the country. I lived alone before, and moved a few times, and I never had problems making friends and meeting girls through college, work, other friends and such. Now, it has been almost 6 months since I've moved, and I haven't made a friend yet.
    I actually get along pretty well with the people at my office, but pretty much everyone in the building 50+ yo, these are not the kind of people I can hang out with. I could download Tinder to meet girls, but I really suck at online dating, because I never had to, and just the thought makes my stomach turn.
    I’m genuinely considering getting back into college just for a few months so I can meet new people.

    Yeah, I realise that it's kinda homosexual to complain about a good paying job with little responsabilities because ">tfw no gf and no friends", but I don't know, dude. I thought my life would get way better, but it hasn't.

      friend, I get it.
      I met a women who changed my life with just one night together and following conversation, and then due to circumstances outside my control I never got to see her again. Texted still sure, but I was going through it a bit at the time and I would have felt better seeing her. All I can say now is be glad for the moment you had, be happy you grew, close the book on her but leave a corner folded, you never know.

    >2013-2014 lose like 150lbs
    Miraculously no loose skin but I was super skinny. Meal every day was 1-2 eggs for breakfast, skip lunch, dinner was like 250-500 calories of any combo of the following: chicken, rice, potatoes, fruit, instant ramen. I also walked a ton.
    >2014-2016 start lifting while working on self in other ways like forcing self to talk to people and try things that scared me
    Made great gains because channeled autism, started becoming very comfortable socially had a blossoming social life and even started dating
    >2017 start getting depressed again but keep pushing
    >2018-2019 fall off my horse
    Stopped lifting, got fat again, because I became fat I re developed social anxiety and became socially inept again
    >2020-2022 same shit even worse
    >2023 start trying to make changes
    Wasted the year, only changes are lessening the depression enough that I don’t have to think about doing basic chores and house work I just do them, also get sunlight each day and generally more active
    >2024
    That’s it. I can’t take this bros. This is the year I get back and idgaf what I have to do to make it happen. Whether I have to starve myself or do my old year king crash diet idgaf. I’ve hit my old peak weight. I’m not coming back here after tonight until the end of this year. If I don’t end up 200lbs by December I’m going to kill myself.

    My gf would be great if she lost the weight. She has expressed expressed her desire to lose weight but she hasn't made any moves herself.

    I'm afraid that if we start working out together, she will lose interest. She's also 31. She treats me well though. But dating younger and more attractive doesn't always mean they will be amenable, or a good mother.

    Idk, I have no qualms with dumping her, unless she shows promise in the gym. Guess I'm just wondering if I'm being a c**t, and even if I am I shouldn't feel shame for wanting a more appealing partner.

    Wife says she wants a divorce, so I said okay. She don't want to be here no more then whatever, she reaches out a few times. I don't really respond much. Finally asks me to talk, and I say okay.
    Tells me the whole "it's me not you" bullshit. So I tell her I agree, and point out all the ways she was a shit wife and partner, but tell her I loved her anyways. Then say I want to go and hang up. Every woman that we both know, including those in my family thinks I'm the biggest butthole in the world, because how much it hurt her.
    If you're gonna do that patronizing bullshit, don't expect people to beg to argue that it was really them/me that sucked.

      It doesn’t even matter how bad the woman was to you. It doesn’t matter how you react or respond, they’ll always view you as the bad guy.

      I get this more than you could understand. I still cope with it every day, and likely will for the rest of my life. I think one of the most important things you could possibly do for yourself is look past the self pity, and seek inner peace. I know it's dumb and hammy and generic, but that's what I've been trying to do and it's working. Kind of. Do the best in the world for yourself, and do quadruply so for the people around you, at any cost. Even if you get nothing but scorn and hatred for your efforts, they are appreciated, though perhaps you can't see it. Knowing that you've done your absolute best, and you went as hard as you could, and you took all the chances in the world. Live without regrets, no matter what. Even if it doesn't get you anywhere, you took your shot, and that's enough to be satisfied with life.
      At least, that's how it is for me

    I've got a 4/10 sorta girl who's into me and clearly wants to see me more. Should I go for it?
    I wouldn't even consider it at all but my oneitis straight up told me she likes somebody. I didn't tell her I like her or anything, she doesn't even go to the same university as me. (It was a moronic hope, I know).
    Should I go for the uggo who actually likes me? I know I'm not exactly a 10/10 myself but I feel absolutely nothing for her, it would only be for the experience. I'm not attracted at all. Maybe it'd be funny for a little while, since she changes her opinions on stuff to match mine the moment I open my mouth.

        Take care of yourself physically and mentally. Wear proper clothes that fit, get a good haircut, and be social. That's it. I'm a 6'4 dude and have tons of friends 5'8-6ft that pull hot chicks. Chicks are attracted to confidence and if you have a pussy mindset, they'll see it.

I used to be able to pull sometimes 6-7/10 in my early 20s with the dawn of dating apps but I've been on and off the past 5 years and can't pull anything, even with premium/boost, doesn't matter the dating apps. I only get fatties and bottom of the barrel women. I'm not a hot guy and don't lift that much because I mostly play hockey and soccer with friends, can run a 5k in <23min and generally have my life together (good family, good health, great job, great house, great friends)

        I used to go to nice bars but now I don't have anyone to go with since they all have girlfriends and kids. I sometimes go alone to try to rekindle with my youth but I am noticing that the only ones that go alone at a bar (especially a nice one) are losers, creeps and extremely awkward/desperate dudes

        The funny thing is, I could probably somewhat meet Michelle Jenneke even though I'm in Canada. My coach and good friend trains high level national athletes at the track and could bullshit something like needing her for a seminar or whatnot. Doesn't really matter as autism/assburger can't be cured and I'll forever be resigned to date chad's past cum dumpster (if I'm lucky) or the worst genetic abberation in existence

      Take care of yourself physically and mentally. Wear proper clothes that fit, get a good haircut, and be social. That's it. I'm a 6'4 dude and have tons of friends 5'8-6ft that pull hot chicks. Chicks are attracted to confidence and if you have a pussy mindset, they'll see it.

      Anon.... she giving you a condom is a green flag that she isn't a bawd, in fact. The worst part is that you've poisoned the well and it'll be harder to date other girls she knows from now on.
      If I were you, I'd invent an excuse or straight up say you were unprepared or nervous of underperforming, (had a lot on my mind lately not feeling horny or some dumb shit) she thought you invited her specifically to have sex.
      And yes, b***hes will roast you in their group chat, all of their complains of locker room talk is projection because they say the nastiest shit when they are together

        I don't believe it anymore. My life was fricking perfect and everything started going to hell. First friend was my roommate, he got run over by a car while walking home. I sensed something was wrong and called the PD, found out that way. He worked so close to home I walked up there to check on him but didn't find anything except for my keys prior to the call (I was letting him use my car). It was hard but I had lots of friends and my gf around. Coming from the deep South, we drove all the way to West Virginia for his funeral, I don't think I've ever been more tired in my life. We had an open casket but you could just tell they reconstructed his head, he was an off color. I touched his chest and it felt like slapping cold meat at the supermarket. My gf held head while I cried like a fool for days. I thought I had made it through and could just move on as normal Then the second one shot himself this October. Then the relationship troubles started, then I lost my job, and then she decided to cut things off on Christmas Eve of all fricking days. Now I do overnight stocking. My fingers bleed just about every day and I'm in consistent pain for less then half of the pay I used to get. Frustration and hate drive me through each day now. When we do communicate, she won't even shred a bit of emotion, it seems like she doesn't care, like she was tired of it way before I could have realized. Its the best relationship I've ever been in. The same woman who was my rock through some of the greatest pains of my life has left this gaping void in my daily existence wherein I break my fricking back for dogshit pay. And of course I'm already mentally unstable, and all of this kickstarted a series of paranoid delusions which further isolate me from others. I can't fricking take it anymore. I work my job for nothing, I have nobody to come home to, the loneliness and frustration I experience on a daily basis are crushing.

    Cheapest beer on tap.
    I really feel that anything a man does that is outside the scope of what a woman wants makes you a bad guy to everyone within their circles.
    Got some friends, 1 of them is my gym bud. 2 of them are married and 1 is in a long term relationship. They do couples things and I understand that it isn't my place to be there when they do.
    Get asked to come with them, 1 of the women has a friend they want to introduce me to.
    Pretty enough, but has a clear limp and after some talking has some health issues. As we are talking really think highly of her, seems like a genuine and good woman. Don't even try to frick her regardless of hints being given because I know that regardless of how nice and sweet she is, I don't see myself on a relationship with her.
    Had she been some hoe I would've but like I said she seemed like a good woman.
    End the night and go about my way. A couple days later she reaches out, and I tell her honestly that I don't see a relationship and didn't want to lead her on or anything. She asks if its her health problems and I tell her honestly yes. That I would like to meet someone and have a family but marrying someone with hereditary health issues like she has is something that I wouldn't want to do.
    Idk lads I think that is a perfectly reasonable boundary.
    Well my buds wives are all pissed, now my gym bud is pissed because he thought that I was "a better man then that." That I was shallow or some shit.

        It’s fricking bullshit I’ve partially grown interested in all this because I now realize it actually affects me that I’m at the age I’m trying to move out and I can’t afford to do it. (Florida). I look at how housing prices have changed over the last 20 years and it’s insane. It was never cheap in my lifetime but it was very possible before.
        Many of the places I’d enjoy moving to are either already largely liberal run or currently heading that way.
        I hate these people so much it’s unreal. Another reason I’ve begun to open my eyes to it is that these liberals 100% are trying to virtue signal, they initiate political conversations with the sole goal being to take some holier than thou moral high ground stand point where they can shake anyone who doesn’t 100% align with them.

They get some footing in those areas and then they leave to other states when they realize “oh I can move to [insert state that has rental prices for about $1000/mnth on average]” theyll flood those places and then they’ll vote democrat because of the obvious reason. It’s fricked up. It’s like this country is crumbling and there’s no fixing it

        All because some selfish buttholes wanted to be able to do the political equivalent of a middle aged Facebook moms virtue signal with her work friends of sharing an “I donated to the animal shelter” post for all to see.

          Politics got more polarizing after OWS, to the point where left-leaning people refuse to be friends with anyone on the right. Shit went full bonkers and I think it's largely because as society gets less religious, the new ties that bind us are political ones. People today treat people with different opposing political views like they used to treat people in other religions a hundred years ago, all the way to calling people heretics. I notice it's more of a problem for people on the left than it is people on the right, who ironically end up being more open-minded and friendlier towards people with different views. Gone are the days of "agree to disagree," because "your opposition is violence." Just look at what happened to JK Rowling for making some innocuous comments about women's sports and prisons.

    >seeing girl, we both like each other and enjoy spending time together. Things are healthy
    >gets to like 4 months in, she starts talking more about wanting to see more of me and mentioning bf gf things
    >have to decide whether or not to take it further

    I just told her yesterday that I don't want a relationship. She was upset and said she doesn't want to see me anymore then because she doesn't want to get more feelings and waste time with someone that doesn't see a future with her

    I'm sad. Here are the reasons I didn't take it further
    >she indulges in drugs occasionally, and used to a lot when she was younger
    >has a lot of male friends
    >I didn't feel a strong romantic connecting although I enjoyed her company
    But even with those reasons, her behaviour was perfectly good and fine towards me throughout.

    Did I make the right decision anons?

        Well my not wanting a relationship was based on those reasons, not because I didn't want to continue spending spending time with her

      Deranged to me that people can "date" for this long and not be calling each other bf/gf. Thank Christ I don't have to date in the modern era.

        She brought it up after initiating the first kiss and makeout session on the first date. She grinded on me til I got a boner, hopped off and told me that. Immediate turn off, should've told her to frick off right there but I was confused.

          relationship ended poorly. im also back living with my parents in less than ideal conditions for the time being + work 50-60 hours a week. taking them wouldnt work so it was best for them to stay with her anyways i guess. im assuming she was just waiting until she was over me and fricking some other dude before she let me even go over there. i saw a pair of boots near the front door that weren’t mine but whatever, i don’t really care about her anymore. just my doggos. i feel like a little b***h writing all that out and complaining about dogs since i’ve had people tell me im overreacting but i don’t care.

    my dream last night consisted of me being assigned to work at a Publix and failing to log in to the work terminal while an armed guard was threatening to shoot me if i did not begin my shift. i eventually, somehow, made my way to a bar and got groped by a short, obese woman and then i woke up.

    Getting sick of spinning my wheels on dating apps, and resent having to downplay many of my interests, hobbies, and personality traits in the interest of casting a wide net while women can lean into them and still amass potential suitors; one of my friends makes reference to 'paid dating sites' which his brother used successfully and is now married, do these even still exist and is anyone not well into oh-shit-biological-clock-ticking age using them? The idea of basically admitting to giving up fully on ever meeting someone the 'normal way' pains me, although arguably that happened the first time I ever downloaded an app

    started talking to a girl a week ago. it looked like we hit it off good. I slept over a few times and made out with her. but now it just feels awkward as shit. we haven't hanged out since then. only been talking through text. idk. idk if I should keep trying, and maybe I'll win her over or to just stop. sucks.

      is she cute anon? tell us what happened

      at the gym today, there was a lane of open treadmills to my left, and this girl went to the one right next to mine, not one over. then when i was slowing down, it felt like she panicked because she was spam hitting buttons before finally hitting stop. i didn't get a good look at her because i took off my glasses for the run and i'm blind without them. anyway that's it, that's the most female interaction i've had in weeks, outside of customer service.

      nice job. she was probably mirin. try to go at the same time the next few days and maybe you’ll run into her again and then you’ll know for sure. proud of you buddy

    I don't know bros, all I got left is lifting and my hobbies. I worked my ass off for 5 years to avoid being stuck here. During those years it was like everything in my life hinged on getting into the program, and it was ripped away in the span of an hour. Everything I sacrificed amounted to nothing.

      Now I have to make up for the time I was in the program and build out multiple EC's with 100+ in the span of a semester, all while preparing for an admissions test. Though I'm furious at my former program, I feel weaker than I was prior, since I was always sure that if I put in the work, I'd get something close to what I worked for. This time, I'm not so sure any of my current work would matter, as it can just as easily be thrown away by some random bullshit. After 5 years, I began to look forward to waking up the next day. Now, I counsel other depressed and suicidal people with no release for my own sentiments.

    I like IST because I feel its the only place I can be around likeminded nerds. Everyone on every other board is just as much of a nerdy homosexual as we all are, but I just don't click right with any of them. It seems like they have no threads about what I'm interested in, but on IST that sort of thing gets brought up tertiary to fitness all the time.

      I think part of this is that people are more excited to reply when a topic is brought up than it would be on boards more suited to it, because we weren't expecting to see it and IST is just generally more friendly and High-T
