    A day in the life of a ghost

    I wake up with my Echo Show 8 next to my bed. It tells me that it's 7:00am. I immediately get up, and get into my home gym and begin a 5 minute walk, followed by a 20 minute run, ending with several minutes of a slow walk to cool down and get the heart-rate back to a normal pace.

    It's now approximately 7:30am. I'll go and grab a 5-10 minute shower before I go and get some breakfast. Note: all of this is done whilst living alone. No one nagging, no dogs barking. Just the silence of my own place. There's a tranquility about it. Some would (and have) worry about my solitude, however, I cannot think of anything much more peaceful than this, apart from maybe being alone, overlooking the water as birds fly by and fish swim past on a warm summers day, with a cool breeze. I think every man should aim to get his own place (rented or purchased).

    I then do my 9-5, either from home, or in the office. Here I'll speak to people when absolutely required, but otherwise, I'll keep myself to myself. After I finish work, I'll generally cook up something healthy. I'm planning on subscribing to one of those online meal-planning services... I know several people in my workplace use them and they're good for people who A) don't know how to cook or B) want to cook healthy with very little excess food waste, or C) Time is limited. I fall into category B and C respectively.

    After this, I tend to kick off my shoes, relax with some TV, music, or study in the home-office for an hour or two. By this time, I'm ready to do some more exercise, which is generally some light weights (~10kg) and more cardio, walking, or running or cycling. After this, it's the second shower of the day.

    In the evening, I'll generally read a book, or play chess online for a while. I'm in the process of fixing my sleep pattern. I'm aiming to get to sleep for 11:00pm, and wake up for 7:00am to get a full 8 hours (when possible).

    Obviously days vary, food varies, exercise varies. But I "blend in" the crowd. I only made the mistake of telling one guy a year ago that I "liked some MGTOW concepts". He baited me into elaborating, before saying: "dude that sounds sooooo mysoginistic! I can't believe you just said that!" before I down-played the situation as it was clear he didn't understand MGTOW and spat out how he was pro-LGBTQ and some other alphabet soups that he claimed to support, before telling me he was pro left-wing politics and wishes they were much more extreme than they currently are. Lesson leant. Rules of MGTOW, don't speak about MGTOW, to anyone offline, as the chances are, they could be brainwashed media puppet clones who will now use the info you've freely given them to damage you and your cred.

    To finish the post, several "things" I find useful:

    1) I tend to wear cheap watches. Why? This makes you stand out of the crowd much less. Wearing a $6 casio? You're not going to attract as much attention as someone wearing a $3,000 Tag Huer
    2) I dress down 24/7 - what I mean by this, is that I wear clothing that's less "expensive" / less attractive in a crowd. For example, if I am out in public, I wear dark colours and generally non-branded clothing. A) it's cheaper and B) it's not loud enough to attract any attention
    3) Japanese goods. I mentioned watches, but I own a Japanese built car, and it's extremely reliable. I've owned BMW's, Mercedes - but they're expensive and fail way more often than the media would have you believe. Japanese is where it's at.
    4) If people talk to you - you always say that you're saving up. You never, ever let them know that you're doing well. People get jealous. People will try to ruin your success. Saving up for what? My boiler broke. I need a new kitchen. My bathroom is leaking. Invent problems. Now, whilst you may not want to "lie", you don't want to give the impression that single life is good and that you're able to save - men with wives/girlfriends will HATE you.
    5) Never let people know you're single - When you're single, people will start to believe you're a bit odd, or strange, or they'll try to hook you up with someone. I often bat off any questions by saying "I'm dating but it's not serious at the moment. Just meeting up on dates now and again". That's generally boring enough to throw people off the scent. The scent that you have no intention of dating/marrying/cohabiting.
    6) Get rid of all the crap you don't need. I watched a documentary on Minimalism a few years ago on netflix. I'm not perfect by any stretch, but I have recycled or given away a lot of my stuff. The only appliances/products/things in my house are things I use regularly. If I don't use it within a 6 month period, it can probably go for good.

    This is just a day in the life/some suggestions which you can take or leave, or build upon. I strongly suggest more MGTOW go ghost. The benefits outweigh the cons, in my opinion.

    I haven't worn a watch in years, I just use my phone for the time. When I did though I preferred cheap ones as I seemed to always lose or break them a lot. As far as not wearing expensive watches see response below..

    2) I dress down 24/7 - what I mean by this, is that I wear clothing that's less "expensive" / less attractive in a crowd. For example, if I am out in public, I wear dark colours and generally non-branded clothing. A) it's cheaper and B) it's not loud enough to attract any attention
    A few years back I had a job where I had to wear a proper suit. I noticed women checking me out and flirting with me on the train. If I chose to I have no doubt I could have banged any of them as they all assumed I was wealthy. I also like to go about my business without attracting attention. I won't even complain if I am in a store etc I will just walk out.

    3) Japanese goods. I mentioned watches, but I own a Japanese built car, and it's extremely reliable. I've owned BMW's, Mercedes - but they're expensive and fail way more often than the media would have you believe. Japanese is where it's at.

    Cars are a waste of money. A cheap reliable Japanese car is just fine. Cheap to run and insure too.
    4) If people talk to you - you always say that you're saving up. You never, ever let them know that you're doing well. People get jealous. People will try to ruin your success. Saving up for what? My boiler broke. I need a new kitchen. My bathroom is leaking. Invent problems. Now, whilst you may not want to "lie", you don't want to give the impression that single life is good and that you're able to save - men with wives/girlfriends will HATE you.

    Very true. It's an old Italian superstition, always cry poor, always say you are ok rather than amazing. Always appear to just be doing ok if that. A lot of people who flaunt their wealth aren't wealthy anyway they are just in a lot of debt to prove how rich they are.

    5) Never let people know you're single - When you're single, people will start to believe you're a bit odd, or strange, or they'll try to hook you up with someone. I often bat off any questions by saying "I'm dating but it's not serious at the moment. Just meeting up on dates now and again". That's generally boring enough to throw people off the scent. The scent that you have no intention of dating/marrying/cohabiting.
    Lying is good. And yes make it sound really dull so they ask you less. Basically be off putting in some way.

    6) Get rid of all the crap you don't need. I watched a documentary on Minimalism a few years ago on netflix. I'm not perfect by any stretch, but I have recycled or given away a lot of my stuff. The only appliances/products/things in my house are things I use regularly. If I don't use it within a 6 month period, it can probably go for good.
    I used to love collecting a lot of shit. Now I look at it and if I ever wanted to move it would be a huge burden. I have books I will probably never read, stuff I will never use or have only used a few times. I wish I worked it out when I was younger and I did have a little voice telling me not to buy stuff but I didn't listen. For whatever reason I felt like I needed it.

    I don't need any of it. I could fit everything I need in a 1 bedroom apartment and be just fine. Even get rid of the car and save on the expense of that too. I would live in a very simple manner but would probably become a millionaire in no time at all, especially if I sold my house.
