    I'm noticing my parents growing older faster and it's strange to me now that I don't get to see them as often. They're starting to forget small things now and that gets me scared because I do not have the time nor resources to take care of them yet.
    Last time I visited my mom over christmas I watched a movie with her, and yesterday she was telling me about a movie she watched that she couldn't remember the name of and she described the movie we watched. I did remind her we watched that movie and she then remembered we did that but it still concerns me.
    I was talking to my dad about the blues artist Robert Johnson and we got on the topic of similar blues singers and he mentioned Robert Johnson as one of them.
    They are 64 and 65 respectively. What do I do bros?

    I posted in the other thread about how my girl might be cheating rn. You guys give good asf advice but I think I'm going to just stay with her but stop kissing her as long as this lasts maybe? The cuddling and sex seem to make the BS worthwhile. Although I'll stop compromising on my health- no more gaming or movies with her, junk food, etc. I've met her family and they seem to like me a lot, I don't think she'd do anything really bad tonight since she'd be betraying them as well

      Confront her about if shes cheating using any evidence you have and if she acts weird about it then that means shes cheating. Don't lose your dignity as a man by thinking with your dick. That relationship won't last anyways if she's cheating.

I didn't say anything and clocked out about 10 minutes later since it was end of shift, but I've always been a strange guy at work. My reputation is already fucked.

      Since i posted that I think its been conclusive. I asked if she lied to me and she said that she doesn't cheat, but that we also aren't technically dating (??????)

      The original suHispanicion was just because she asked if she could go drinking with her slut friends and the guys hockey team from our uni, and when I reacted poorly, she said she had to go out for a shift at work. And then she kept texting me about how she was at work etc when normally thats not necessary

    I’ll have a neat whiskey.

    I’m in-between this state of thinking and optimism. I’m turning 31 next week, and in the days leading up to my birthday I spend a lot of time self reflecting on previous years. It’s sobering stuff, really. I think of all the squandered opportunities, the missed connections, and all the things I missed out on in my youth. It’s not so much that I missed out on living my best life in my teens and 20s, it’s that I didn’t take action. That’s the thing that keeps me up at night. I’ve had opportunities for dream jobs literally dropped on my lap, I had girls give me all the signs, I had friends invite me for cool shit—and all I did was stay at home. It’s constant self-sabotage and I’ve made the decision to cut that shit out.

    So I say I’m kinda optimistic, right? I’m actually kind of lucky. I have steady employment with steady bonuses paid quarterly, I have my own place, and I’m in the best shape of my life. Better yet, I’m going on a weeklong vacation to Hawaii with some dudes I met recently. I’ve been more social in the past year than I’ve ever been from my teens into my late 20s. I’m going to have a good time to build up these relationships and I’ll use these good aloha vibes to carry me throughout this year. That’s the thing—I’m jumping at every opportunity to flourish. I’m not repeating the same mistakes I made as a kid. I have no excuse, I don’t give a shit. I don’t even have a shit to give in the first place. This will be my year. This will be my fucking year.

    For all you guys that are feeling down.. wait until you see some progress in life. It’s the best feeling ever, feeling AND knowing that you’re getting out of a rut. WAGMI

        Anonymous

        You're supposed to have kids and live vicariously through them.

        We tried for kids for a couple years but I recently found out my swimmers aren't charged, like, at all. So at this point it's either adoption or no kids at all. We talked adoption and were looking into it so that's a start I guess.

        Now you either double down and have kids or go schizo and ascend to a higher level of personality formation at the cost of everyone thinking you’re a weird loser.

        I took the weird loser pill this year actually, people that I work with treat me like a charity case and I think it's funny. I've gotten so much free food and supplies for my house because of it that I'm keeping it going. Better than nothing I guess.

            Anonymous

            It's both, low counts and quality. I had my test levels taken recently and they showed as 1000 ng/dL so I'm not low on that. Apparently it could be some genetic thing or whatever, wife's not on birth control. We went to her OB/GYN together and got her results back as good. She can have kids but not with my swimmers. It's either adoption or no kids.

            you've reached the perfect machine slave build, you're as tied to the system as it gets, most your freedoms are gone and you'll live to retire by the time your body is a pile of shit

            Whats weird is that I lived completely opposite to that for most of my life until 4 years ago. It's scary how fast the bullshit catches up to you.

            It was mine for the longest time as well. We were super excited for kids, made up a nursery and everything. At the end of the day adoption is our best chance.

                I offered that to her but she refuses to leave me,surprised me honestly.

                Unlike other anons I will give you some legitimate advice (and no having kids won't make you happy).

                -What you actually, genuinely need, and should strive for, is financial independence. Otherwise you are going to be chained to your job and mortgage.
                -You are not tied down to one place for the rest of your life. You have a valuable asset that you can rent out while you can do whatever the fuck you want. You can use it to gain more assets, even.
                -Suburban life is dreary. There's literally nothing to do and everything requires a car. It might simply be that you're unhappy living in such a place in America. There's other options, also other countries.

                Appreciate the advice anon, I've thought about renting out the house and just traveling since my mortgage is so low and I could rent out the house for a lot but I have this sinking feeling that something will go wrong. I'm being a total pussy aren't I?

                Do anything you can to improve your count and quality.
                Stop taking hot showers - cold, or lukewarm.
                Practice semen retention.
                Avoid anti-spermatogenic things in your diet.

                Try a bit more, then resort to adoption.

                I'll start that ASAP anon, I appreciate the advice. I've been so demoralized by it that I kinda gave up. I'm gonna try harder now.

                Nah. The concern is legitimate. You have to be careful who you rent to and that means being heartless. Given that it's your first home, you're not in a position to give people a chance. It's all about risk tolerance. There's a thousand and one things that can go wrong when you rent out to shitty people and first time landlords get routinely taken advantage for it.

              My first marriage, from when I was 22 to 25, ended because I was infertile. We both wanted kids and she had to look elsewhere. I not only have very few sperm, but they are severally damaged. Even if a miracle happened and I impregnated a woman, the resulting child would be severely physically and mentally handicapped. I got a vasectomy to prevent such a tragedy. I'm now 36 and just married the love of my life; she's infertile due to an ovarian cyst. We are happy together and I hope you consider your current wife may not be right for you.

    My girlfriend and I broke up last Tuesday and I saw her friend's Instagram where she's at the club having fun and I can't take it.

    Full disclosure, she has Borderline Personality Disorder. It was manageable until a couple weeks ago when she started to physically abuse me. She would threaten to kill me and that she would murder me. Last Tuesday, when we were at the gym she was triggered and started to punch me in the face. I grabbed my stuff and left her apartment. I've been doing fine until I saw those pictures. For fucks sake! She abused me and yet my heart melts when I see her. What the fuck should I do?

Ive been moody this past month and my grades are slipping. I made a resolution that I would kiss a cutie for every month of the year and right now I’m 0 and 12. Im at 12% bodyfat right now so I think I want to cut to 8% for a week to enjoy that, then I’ll be bulking after that. I need to get on nofap and reconnect with god but touching my pp feels too good. I know what I need to do but idk if I have the strength to do it

    I like a girl but she's diagnosed autistic and incapable of expressing any romantic emotion

    another girl just rejected me. I could have asked her the question about 2 weeks ago, instead I mentally psyched myself up. I recognize that its over, and I need to move on, yet my mind wont let me too. Head is going through all these scenerios, all those thoughts still telling me a I have a chance, somehow.

    I remember getting on a date with her, the discussion is getting a proper flow, and then she starts talking about her ex and how she loves him. I cut the meeting short, how do I get a better mental game? I just couldnt deal with it

      You were right to cut it off, no good woman, or even man for that matter brings up past relationships and tells you how much she/he used to love him/her

    Glass of whole milk please.
    This cold weather makes me want to stay in. I can't wait for the sun to reappear.

    >sitting in the train
    >it’s busy so lots of people standing
    >i sit next to this big glass pane that touches my shoulder
    >a qt comes and she leans onto the glass
    >without the glass plane we would be touching bodies
    >at one point i look to the side, she does too, our faces like 30cm from each other
    >we hold eye contact for a few seconds and she smiles, look away
    >feel a rush go through my body
    >autistically avoid her gaze the rest of the ride

    goddamn it i promised myself next time in a similar situation i would ask out or talk to the girl but i still didn’t do it.

    I used to think me being super introverted was just a consequence of my social anxiety, but after fixing the latter the former just stayed. I do reasonably well socially. Have friends, acquaintances and have no trouble interacting with strangers. But I absolutely cannot stand being around people constantly for more than 12 hours or maybe a day. And even less if we don't have any activities. I stopped going on holidays with friends because after at most 2 days I'd rather be shot than spend more time talking about the same things or nothing at all.
    It's not that I don't like people or don't get along with them, I just get tired of them very quickly. I like being alone but this behavior is very off putting to most people especially women. Anybody else deal with this?
