I'm almost floored, shocked, and relieved that this exists. I actually came upon this forum by typing, 'Can life without women make men more successful?' , Or something pretty close. I came here to see a world I had always wished existed. I've painfully arrived, as have all of you, (I'm no poster boy, I realize I'm another MGTOW that has tasted the evil, selfish, corrupt, & unrelenting FemCult).
I'm here at 57! Yep, it's true. I'll never be ashamed to have found what 'here' is after all these years, just GLAD I did!!!
I was married to a woman at 25, that had 4 year old daughter, that I raised as my own. One year later , in 1985, we had our own daughter together. 21 years later, after our humble home was 2nd mortgaged, & credit cards shy high debt out of control, most by her doing, she starts screwing around with a younger guy, & moves in with him. Of course, just after she and her'girlfriend' took a resort vacation to PuntaCana, Dominican Rep. I was single 4 years, & was ready for some more torture, seems I didn't have enough.
I started dating an old aquaintance of my sister's, someone I had known since I was 14. She would certainly be loyal, she was 'money', & the length of time my family knew her was certainly an insurance policy, she was gold! I married again. Seven years later, & she asked me to leave the house. I had been having severe back and hip problems, had an adverse reaction to some steroid shots I was getting, & found myself on my back, immobile for 6 weeks from March 2016 & into May. She couldn't handle it. It was distressing to me to the point that I had to be put on mood stabilizers. My older sister took me in.
In late May , I started to become mobile , started up my restoration business right where I left off, & started building my life again. None of this is drama, all true...I now rent a small condo, have it furnished, & have peace. As of this writing I was informed by my wife, (we're not divorced or separated yet, legally separated that is), that she recently sold the home to her Jezebel daughter, and she'll be living in the mother-in-law apt. in the back of the house. I never had my name on the home, she promised me every year that she would "get around to getting the paperwork done" sooner or later. Yeah , sure , after I poured some $30,000 of my money into it. She stopped working after the first year of our marriage, complaining of unsubstantiated Fibromyalgia, & systemic arthritis. No doctor to this day has ever diagnosed her for either.
I'm limping around, need real surgery, and getting by. I feel so ashamed that I was "tricked" again. This time, I really feel like, "shame on me". Although I feel good that I've come to this enlightenment. I was raised in a strict Christian upbringing by an overbearing and abusive Mother, that I have since forgiven. I don't know if this belongs in here, but I'm going to say it, I was molested by my Aunt when I was 5 years old, then by an older and much stronger boy in my neighborhood when I was very young. I had conflicting feelings for decades about men & women , I could never , ever say everything in this into. I was constantly trying to please women, & looking for their approval my entire life. It truly is over. I don't hate women. I'm just that much wiser. If anyone thinks I'm a fool, no problem, you can have your opinion. I will tell you one thing, I've become adept at reading people, and have become shrewd, especially when dealing with women and negotiating work contracts, more so than EVER.
Well, I may have bored you enough. Thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself, and for the forum to do so.
