    Strength in numbers...My Intro..

    Good day all…
    I read some of the threads in some of the forums here. I found things that resonated with me… I don’t have a long list of hard luck stories. Although I have had my share of being eff’d over by all kinds of women and society in general. I have had a pretty good life, I’m a former Marine, avionics in a search and rescue unit, Helicopters and corporate jets type stuff. Nothing too tactical. Great start to a career as an Electronics design engineer. Was married for twenty some years, been on my own for about ten. I’m living by most people’s standards, a good life. A few years ago ran into a Marine buddy, former F-18 pilot that inspired me to become a pilot finally. One of the best decisions that validates and challenges me every time I fly. Always been a dream of mine that always got put off due to family and kids.
    Which brings me to a place in life that we all have come to realize. Our true worth and the intolerance for accepting anything less than our own standards demand. Our society and the deception it speaks about of what a “Real Man” is or should be…. It is not defined by said society, or feminism or sub cultures, but by each one of us individually. What I have found here in the Gyow world, is that as a whole and by each one contributing the same core truths and principles, and walking their own lives accordingly, is how society will get the new definition on men and how we will participate in Society!
    I for one choose to help create that new definition. I don’t have the same experiences or view points as some, on who women are or what they should be, But I do share the common belief that feminism is a cancer and that the health of our culture and society is worse for it. I have read forums and watched videos from both men and women that see the same effect on society and the detriment feminism and the expectations women have as being a root cause. This site/ forum for most is a good vehicle to voice our thoughts and feelings, and to get affirmation for who we are. But I hope that for every individual here it goes further than that and is their lifestyle and daily walk. I plan to continue to read and watch here, and share when I feel I have something to contribute to one or a group. Gyow sites like these has been an awakening for me. And I hope to encourage anyone else to continue to grow and learn what it is to be a Man in this world. To not back down from your core truths, values and principles. What one man can do, Another can do! Iron sharpen Iron…In Time the infection that ails our culture will be cured.
    ……………...For this Man, It starts with me!
    Living Life as a Man isn't a choice, But a calling... Be willing to be called a Man!

    What, your not from MGTOW? Get out a here.

    We don't rate anyone by how much they've suffered. Good thing, I'm a feather merchant compared to most of the membership. We're here to help, not brag.

    Re: Strength in numbers...My Intro..

    Hi Frog, actually I was on the other site and see many familiar men here..
    I hope my intro was anything but bragging or arrogant..I come from a most humble place. Compared to the scars that a lot of men here, I have suffered minimally. Like Uly said we all come here to learn and help others. If there is anything I can offer or encourage other men in their walk and trials, I'm happy to..
    BTW, Thanks Uly for the positive reply. I have read many of your thread contributions, much appreciated brother.

    I don't see that you did any bragging, sorry if it sounded that way. All I was trying to say is no one here will think their more MGTOW than you cause you got off easier.

    Hi Maximus Aurelius,

    It looks like no Moderator has dropped by since the time that you registered so I get to be the heavy. You have told us a little bit about your life and you have given us general observations and philosophies but unfortunately it's not the rounded Intro we seek. We are looking for personal experiences. It helps our members learn about you and it also distinguishes you from site infiltrators who restrict their testimonies to generalities and philosophies. Please read the sticky How To Intro in this New Member Intros sub-forum where it explains that we want each new member to discuss in detail these three topics:

    1. Relationship history (experience with women, red pills, what about it made you made you aware; note- you don't HAVE to have had relationships but you can speak of your interactions with women) -- it turns out trolls don't have good, realistic stories of this ilk.

    2. Awareness
    : your blue pill perspectives, how you transitioned to red pill, with enough detail about what brought you to MGTOW.

    3. Who you are
    : tell us a little bit of who you are. What you like, what you do, etc.


    As far as #1 Relationship History, you've told us that you don't have a long list of hard luck stories with women. How about telling us about one or two good ones, in some detail?

    As far as #2, you have told us beliefs and philosophy but we are looking for you to relate personal experiences here. Please tell us how you transitioned to red pill, with enough detail about what brought you to MGTOW.

    As far as #3, what do you do today? Hobbies?

    There has been a renewed emphasis on getting Intros brought into compliance. Thank you for your prompt attention to this.

    Re: Strength in numbers...My Intro..

    Hey Max! I remember you from the other site, too. These guys get itchy about intros around here. It's not like the other site. There's a lot of good people here and some old friends of yours here, too. Pull up a chair and grab a beer. Remember, most of these peole haven't met you yet.

    Re: Strength in numbers...My Intro..

    Here are some further specifics as requested…As mentioned before, I was married for over twenty years. It was an ok marriage. What brought it to an end was an ultimatum she threw down, or else she was moving out. It was a little unlike her, and I suspected someone was in her ear. None the less she threw it, and the beginning of the end was set in motion. Because of a substantial amount of debt from a business I ventured into, she decided she didn’t want any part of that and opted to go our own ways with no financial support from me in return for me carrying the whole amount of debt. Our kids were grown, so there was no CS. After a few years and finally resolving said debt, I came out fairly unscathed and a bit better off financially. This is probably the start of my Mgtow journey as some things become much more apparent to the single man than one already under agreed terms of relationship responsibilities…

    While single I have had a couple long term relationships, and dated my fair share of women. It is in these dating experiences that so much truth of the Red Pills out there have become my reality. It is interesting that as I or men in general accumulate experiences, the truths become much clearer much sooner. To the point where I see it coming now. Everyone knows or has similar experiences as I have had, as so much is written and spoken about them in these forums. But as requested I will speak to my own and my take away.
    My transition, Dating these days and in the recent past, has become so much of a comedy of errors. In the sense that all the stereotypes are now so known, that women just accept and admit to them. The whole men should pay for first and every date. The use of “Withholding Sex” as a weapon, that they admit to and feel entitled to. As you can guess, these relationships/experiences don’t last verra long…. (I realize I’m preaching to the choir. But hey YOU asked.) I have had a couple relationships, nothing to write home about. When signs of disrespect for me as a man start creeping in, and she starts with the shit tests, that’s when I go my own way. After a while It’s easier to start bringing out Blue pill topics to some of the women I’d meet, at least the ones I was less interested in. Most scoff or laugh, some even say they understand how hard it is to be a man in today’s world. Almost All of them admit to having ‘Guy‘ friends. No Really…. They’re just friends! They insist nothing would ever go on between them and these so called guy friends, some are even married! It’s so hard not to bust out laughing, actually I have, And say to them “That’s my whole point!” … Then when the little light of understanding goes off and just how they are AWALT, they shrug and feign indifference and say the guys are good with it. That’s when I share with them how little to no self respect those guys have or she has for them. That’s when they nod their head in admission and ask how I got so smart or woke.
    Let’s not leave out, how modern Feminism has seeped into every crevice of society, and what you’re left with is Red Pills everywhere! How can men not transition into a mgtow lifestyle in some regard. Now, add on the utter disgrace of how men are portrayed in society, i.e. Commercials. Sitcoms , movies etc.. Every white man out there is always and continually shown in the most demeaning or mocking state. Where every ‘couple’ is mixed race and usually the shown as attractive young adults. I could go on and on about the media and how it falsely depicts every woman as so strong and independent, entitled and empowered. If there ever was a lie that ruined any hope of healthy goings on between men and women Feminism is thy name!

    Any hooos, my humble experience is not unlike most of yours, just names have been changed to corrupt innocent men. Transition? Who in their right mind can avoid a transition of some kind, hopefully one they can call their own!
    Where am I now you ask. I have become skeptical, perhaps cynical of the false concept of a man woman relationship. So I go my own way. I date some, but not blindly as I have in the past. More importantly, I do my own thing. I have a great job, Design engineer. I am a pilot, and I’m pretty fit. So I stay active with a couple other buddies that have a similar mind set. We do motorcycle adventure trips. Last summer a few of us rode dirt bikes from El Paso, Tx. To Wyoming, over the Rockies. That was a blast. The outdoors is always fun and I have a fair gun collection. I am just living life as best I can live it. I hope this sheds a bit more light on my journey as requested. If there are questions or anything else, feel free to comment..

    Hi Maximus!

    I know you don't have ESP to read my mind in the brief PM's I sent and boy do I know how easy it is to lapse into generalities and philosophy when asked to write stuff! To graphically illustrate, and begging your pardon, the parts of your reply above that I made red is written in a general sense and includes your thoughts about the larger society and is not the personal experience that we were hoping in Post #7 that you'd tell us in your Intro.

    The parts I made blue are also general and we were hoping you would tell us some details, please. What shit tests actually happened to you? What happened? Many of our members (and the lurkers here as well) could benefit from details from your personal experience to recognize when these same things might come their way, rather than just reading the same old broad brush.

    Do not worry if you think your personal experiences repeat what others may already know or recognize. This is about you.

    I think you have the rest covered.

    Thank you.

    Re: Strength in numbers...My Intro..

    The title of this thread seems rather odd. "Strength in numbers" seems like the opposite of Going Your Own Way, doesn't it? More collective than individual. Sure, we share information and stories and give each other advice, but we can and do control our own lives. Maybe I am reading too much into the thread title. Any other opinions out there?
