    Another Ghost

    Greetings to All. 52 year old divorced, white male. No children. Dog recently deceased (saddest day in years). If my apartment burns down, I'll have everything I need for a country-western song.

    I was born into a solidly middle class family in 1967 and was raised with all the traditional blue pill illusions: work hard and you will be rewarded, women are looking for a good man to settle down with, etc. I was incredibly slow to take the red pill and my life can serve as a cautionary tale. I spent way too much time getting educated with advanced degrees. While my job is good, I also have the student loans to prove the cost wasn't worth it. I married for the first and only time at age 39 to a single mother with a teen-aged daughter. We divorced 7 years later when I got monkey-branched for a guy who made more money. To be honest, I was relieved. The marriage was hell. She had so many issues (real and imagined) and was fiercely manipulative. I was lucky to escape with my clothes and the dog and just left everything else behind. No alimony either as she married her latest victim six months later.

    I am grateful I never had children, and a vasectomy to make certain that wouldn't happen. Subjecting a child to this meat-grinder world would be a cruel thing for me to do, in my eyes. I understand if others would view it differently.

    After the divorce in 2013, I dated an old girlfriend from college very briefly and since then, nothing. No desire to either. I doubt the dating world would miss me anyway. I am happy to be out of it.

    So now I have been settling into a life of minimalism, pursuing a few hobbies, and just generally trying to live comfortably for the rest of my time here on earth. I also watch the downfall of Western Civilization with a mixed of humor, disgust, alarm, and curiosity (how will it all end?).

    I am very glad to be here and look forward to talking with you.

    Hi Revenant,

    A couple of questions just out of curiosity if you don't mind:

    How did you become aware of MGTOW generally and this site in particular?

    You mention you have a 'few hobbies', may I ask what they may be?

    Hi Revenant,

    This introduction seems sincere indeed. But I would like to hear about some episodes with regards to how your wife manipulated you.

    The younger folk need to learn about female manipulation, so could you share some stories about how your wife manipulated you?
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    After my divorce, my desire to date never came back (the brief encounter with the old college girlfriend was completely random). I was beginning to think something was wrong with me so I started doing some internet research on the subject and that's how I found out about MGTOW. Turns out I wasn't alone in how I was feeling. I had to agree because I had to shudder when i thought back over how much of my life had been spent pursuing and thinking about women. It was absolutely nuts. No more.

    As to hobbies, if I don't have at least one book going there's something wrong. I also enjoy metal detecting (I'm in a club) for exercise and fresh air. I also try to take a couple of long road trips a year if time allows.

    It mostly started with extreme mood swings that I was supposed to solve. If she was sad or angry, it was my job to make everything better. If I didn't, she would accuse me of not loving her or implying that I had failed as a man. Everything became about proving my worth to her all the time. Doing ten things right and one thing wrong meant I had failed.

    She would also claim crippling phobias so she wouldn't have to work, which left me carrying the financial burden for everything, including her debt. She would talk about what a good Christian girl she was, but she was the one who eventually committed adultery after she found the guy who would pay for the lifestyle she wanted.

    She was a beautiful woman physically, and I suppose that sucked me in and convinced me that all that was normal, when in reality I was living an incredible screwed up life.

    Welcome Revenant
    Thank you for sharing your journey to the Red Pill. I was most impressed with your instinct to not date after your divorce. It took me a little while to realize women had nothing to offer but headache, worse they are just looking for the next victim. I even had to shut off my Facebook account because 1st Ex kept trying to message me. When I joined here, I was 'neutral', but everyday I become more and more of a ghost avoiding contact with women whenever possible.
    In my 50s, I am finding that late forties early 50s women are the most desperate to lock down a retirement plan. They have NOTHING to offer except health problems, debt, child issues, mental problems, and a dried up old body

    That's sincere, I connected with everything you said! Looks like we're both experienced in narcissistic personality disorder with a touch of delusional psychosis! I've been in your shoes but not married to it, and more than once I've seen that pattern in women where everything is polar opposite to any cooperation at all! Welcome to the forums, it's nice to hear from others that have the same insight and understanding to the pearls we face in life otherwise know as women...

    Welcome. Feel free to contribute your thoughts, I am sure we could use some insights from an experienced man like you.

    Re: Another Ghost

    A short intro, and so far everyone likes it. So it can be done.

    You are either a fine writer or had one hell of a good day. Welcome.
