    Trust this forum is active? Looking for active MGTOW forums. Harder than I thought it would be

    Welcome
    You are going to be asked to do an intro, so if you do not mind doing one.


    MGTOW, not just by name but practice is not going to lend itself to large groups or forums. I have been around it for about a year and have noticed it is much the revolving door as men come in figure out getting past red pill rage then finding their own path.

    Re: New here

    Yep. My marriage of 16 years broke down three years ago and have been going alone since that time. Still have bouts of rage and bitterness. Three kids from the marriage (teens and older) and never thought it would happen to me.

    Have no intention of getting back onto the plantation but from what I see of other MGTOW, wouldn't call myself hardcore red-pilled in that if the perfect woman came along (including wealth!) I might go back. Considering I'm three years into post-marriage celibate existence and discovered MGTOW in only the last year, I am in large part past the red pill stage. I'm therefore likely atypical of the average MGTOW forum participant.

    As was saying, I am red-pilled but not fundamentally opposed. Is this then not red-pill? Am I blue pill? The catch is, my criteria are so stringent it is not going to happen and because of my experience of women and married life, I'm extremely wary. Any sign of women's ways and exploitation by women triggers a shutdown on my part and I go to the deep end of my ghosting way. If they try poke sticks at me down there, a seething rage, anger and aggression is what they get next and it is not pretty. I don't hit people ever but the anger and bitterness is plain for them to see, and runs just beneath the surface, so doesn't take a lot for it to surface.

    It is interesting how even using a acronym like Men Going Their OWN Way, people still think there is any need for conformity to any standard.

    Red pill, for me is a moment of discovery, it is when you ALLOW yourself to see reality for what it is. Blue pill is the sleeping pill, where you dont want to see reality because it stands Luther way what you want and need.

    Therefore you can have the red pill, and later take a blue pill... There is even a saying: "one blow job away from the plantation"...

    Atypical? No. Every MGTOW is an atypical man own its own right. And its hard to get these men together at a forum in harmony.

    As for getting the "perfect women", its all a question of perspective. I am sure that a thirsty man in the desert would think a glass of water and camel piss is perfect.

    It depends on how happy you are. If you are truly content, then you will not risk it in a rigged game of Russian Roulette.

    But if you are miserable, then even a frog would look like a ... perfect princess.

    Maybe MGTOW are just not thirsty types or rather, deliver themselves of thirst in other ways ... , have been asked numerous times about when I'm getting into a new relationship, Tinder etc and then get the question about sex as if a man would wither away and become a non-man. It is as if not having a woman immediately available is like having a house without ablution facilities.

    In most cases there is a blatant attempt at shaming through asking the question about sex life. I reckon many fall for this and find themselves manipulated back onto the plantation. Basically its an ultimatum of conform or be perceived to be a sicko. The way to handle it (or the way I handle it) is to say its none of their business how I get "action". I say it in a way that suggests i do get "action" and let that hang in the air. Often, the person trying to lay on the social pressure is on the plantation, being worked to death and not getting any "action" anyway.

    Post something on the "New Member Intros" sub. This is basically fine if you just want to copy it, although I always like to read an anecdote, a story, a "holy shit, this is a thing that actually happened". There's a "How to Intro" sticky post which kinda lays out what we like to see, and there's all the other intros, of course. Very worthwhile reading in its own right, just to learn a bit from the experiences of others.

    The pills are only metaphorical, you know. It's not like there's a formal rulebook (although there's a couple of posts on the internet that purport to be). If "The Matrix" analogies help you understand your situation, great; if not, don't sweat it.

    You need to process the rage, take concrete practical steps to protect yourself from your ex, and aim towards having a happy life and doing what's best for your yourself and for your kids. You need to provide for your own old age and have some fun along the way, because otherwise what's the point?

    Becoming realistic about how women, relationships, and marriage work in this day and age is part of that, sure. Particularly in respect of protecting yourself from your ex. Women, when they cease to love a man, absolutely cease to love him. Without care and attention, your future is in the hands of a stranger who has no compunction about taking your stuff. Be prepared for her to desperately grasp at your money once she faces the child support and alimony running out. But I bet you already know that.

    "New Member Intros".

    That is a red pill if there is one. A man keeps finding himself as a slave if he fails to recognize shamming language and how its is used to press for conformity and return to the plantation.

    I realized something very useful: every word out of a female's mouth has a selfserving intention. Either for herself or the hive.

    If you dont understand the intention, then you are being duped.

    There is no such thing as "thinking on what is best for you" for a female. Its always about controlling you for their benefit.

    A man is a hunter, like a lion, when he is not hunting he can relax, and that is 99% of the time. A female is a parasite, like a leech, its a fulltime job, there is no rest.

    Check this out, and tell me if it isnt true...

    Re: New here

    I was like you for a long time. Then, I tried to break up peacefully with my live-in girlfriend of 13 years. It was like a Catholic divorce! Now, when I think of putting a girlfriend in my life I see a collar and leash coming at me.
