    Did I "redeem" myself?

    So when I was about 18-22 I was extremley naive and ignorant about women and I had this "sense", that what I was told they were and what they REALLY were. (Red Pill) were 2 totally different things. It just didn't seem quite right to me and I had to investigate further. When I was 23 I found Rollo's channel. Still hadn't graduated or done anything of significance with my life.

    Then I read about the "mid-life crisis" and how for men it was about not living up to their potential and putting the female imperative first before their own and then at that point I "floored it". I started running as fast as I could and tried to accomplish as much as possible.

    I graduated college, learned some rare skills by literally locking myself in my room and just learning, got my dream car (a V8 muscle car), and got some certificates. Not much money and little to no socialization but very much just "inward thinking" and what do I want to do? Fuck everyone else. That was from 24 to now, I'm 27 and I'm amazed at how far I've came.

    Did I "redeem" myself and compensate from my lack of social and sexual success?

    I don't know, did you? It's a strange question for a MGTOW to ask. You're the one who has to decide if the tradeoffs you made were worth it. How are we supposed to know?

    Bike shops used to sell a sticker that said, "most of my money I spent on wine women and song. The rest I wasted." It all depends on how you look at it.
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    Only you can answer that question. I would say NO because you are still looking to impress others and seeking approval from them.
    Stay away from women. They will only break your heart.

    You think sexual success, which you can buy like anything else, is better or worse than a life of general success?

    So you did all this hard work alone, and you think about some pussy validating you?

    How dare you sir.

    Go to your bathroom, look in the mirror, and slap that bitch in the face.

    Look dude, if you're actually a dude.

    Nobody cares, we don't care, your family doesn't care, nobody honestly gives a fuck about "you". They might care about how you fit into their lives and what you can do for them. But that's just their ideas. Not actually you.

    As long as you are content; it does not matter what anyone else thinks.

    So since you did not learn this yet; no you have not redeemed yourself. You still failed.

    To me it seems you're seem to be (very) concerned about other people's opinion, OP.

    I think I smell some tuna here but I'll still say this. If you're still worried about what others think of your social and sexual success, then you haven't really accomplished anything for the right reasons. You still value other peoples opinions too much and what you accomplished was for their approval and not for your true benefit.
    And what man refers to his ride as a "V8 muscle car"? Are you sure you don't bleed once a month?

    The real question is, do they bleed for five days without dying.

    When I bleed to get a trip to the hospital.

    Somebody's salty that their ride sucks and/or they can't afford a dream item.

    Lightbulb Re: Did I "redeem" myself?

    Redeem yourself? A religious concept not meaningful in this context.

    The question is whether you are satisfied with the results.

    That is *not* the approval of some group (including the random selection found here).

    Edited to add:
    Now that I have read down the whole thread, I agree this is probably a female troll.
    But just in case it's not, my original off the top of the head answer stands.

    Did you redeem yourself?

    Only you can answer this.

    By asking this question you seem to be seeking validation in the viewpoints of others.

    The only validation worth shit is that that comes from within.

    You seem to me (for what that’s worth) to be on the right track, one of self-improvement. Yes there will be some hardships such as lack of finances and social interaction in the short term, but that’s not as bad as it’s made out.

    Getting yourself on a good track early in years (yes, 27 is still early) will bear fruit further down the line.

    Keep up the good work njui90saklk.

    Why does it matter? Are you happy with yourself? Could you have done better? What did you not achieve that you wanted?

    Don't ask questions about yourself to others.... Ask questions to yourself about yourself and improve if you need to.... You have to live with yourself so it's you that matters... Not others.

    Yeah, another one-time poster who never came back to this thread, never logged in again after posting this. That was November 9th.

    So, she registers, posts this, goes way intentionally, to read our responses as a lurker while sipping her boxed wine.

    The members saw it.

    Banned.

    These one-and-done registrants in general. Are they really MGTOW? I see more evidence of MGTOW in fellows who've posted in our Nonmember sub-forum than I see in some of these one-and-done people. I'll give consideration to closing out accounts of people who post once then vanish. Move their exploratory questions to that sub-forum, perhaps.

    Then, too, their bizarre throw-away email addresses used to register don't smack of a MGTOW guy expecting to stick around and join this communication forum. More like the types who haunt the alleys and side streets of the internet or something, moving from site to site in search of a momentary attention and not camaraderie.

    Lurkers and trolls reading this, we have a sub-forum called Nonmember Questions and Opposing Views where you can post your one-and-done stuff without having to register first. It's there for that purpose. What you post there can be considered for its content and merit rather than be diluted with concerns for the validity of its presence, such as what had marbled this thread.

    Thank you.
