    Talk is cheap and the sex is overrated...

    Hello Gents,

    I'm a 44 y/o divorced man that was married for six tortured years and escaped with what I could fit in the truck and what was in the retirement account. She made sure there wasn't anything to fight over in the divorce by spending it faster than I could make it. She kept the house and the loan that goes with it and I kept my retirement. That was three years ago and I'm just now climbing out of that financial hole and loving life again. Prior to meeting and marrying the greatest mistake of my life, I was a happily single guy that would date only occasionally but found if I wanted to get laid, it wasn't that hard. A couple meals and a friendly attitude was usually all it takes. I guess I was an alpha/Chad in some ways and a beta in others.

    I'm not 100% sure how I came across the MGTOW community. It was definitely right after my divorce when I was sleeping on a couch and eating ramen flipping noodles for six months with nothing better to do but surf the internet. I'll give a shout out to Terrence Popp and his stuff for at least helping me find the humor in a bad situation. I've lurked the forums for a long time, off and on. I've even shared some of the stuff from YouTube and the forums with other guys and found it can be a hit or miss thing. Some guys take to it pretty easily and others think it's a cult. I've stopped bringing it up since.

    I do date occasionally but I'm finding my market value has gone way up while their value to me is very limited. Dinner conversation is tedious and I'm not interested and the sex is usually not worth the time investment. The MGTOW community has pointed out a few red flags to look for and I can chuckle when I see them now. It makes dealing with the twisted ball of shit that is the female psyche a lot simpler.

    In my spare time I tend to do very little, and I love it. I work a lot and my down time is usually spent walking the dog, drinking a glass of wine, going out to eat and just piddling around the house. I do attend the occasional classical music concert or opera. I've given some thought to doing model trains again, hitting the gym a little more, or just booking a trip to Europe. Sometimes the feeling of freedom and just knowing that I could do anything I want is enough so I pour a bourbon and sit on the porch with a hound and a smile.

    The night I left I took very little. I had a 20 minute soul searching session on what was important and what wasn't. I realized the "stuff" held value for her and not me so I left nearly everything. I just didn't care. I drove to a gas station and sat in shock for a few minutes to let it sink in I was finally done, done and done. After that, it was pretty awesome. Euphoric actually.

    Welcome. I agree, sex is very over rated and talk is bullshit. Looking forward to seeing more of your posts.
