    Smile Living the Dream

    I got contacted by Jagr a couple of days ago. I don't know if anyone notices, but I have not been especially active around here for months now, and have not been executing my duties as a mod. Some of the newer guys may not even recognise me. It's possibly a good time to talk about why. Of course, I don't want to be identified, which is tricky because it's pretty easy to work out where I'm from and it's a small town. I'll try to tread the line.

    Basically: right at the moment my life fucking rocks.

    Work:

    I have a boring and undemanding job doing important shit for a government agency, and I mean important for the country. What I do matters. Work comes in spurts (heh). A while back, my bosses (all female bosses, of course: government) called me in about not doing the full 40 hour weeks. After a bit of trying and failing to put in a full weeks work, I told them look: is what it is, and if that means you can't extend my contract then I get it, fair enough, we can finish up amicably and I can look for something that's permanent part time. After a few days talking to *their* bosses, the answer was "shit, at least you don't pad your hours. You can do X hours a week ongoing provided that the stuff is done come release day."

    So, here we are. The stuff I do absolutely, positively must be done by release day, but that's true for everyone and we work to generous timeframes precisely because what we do must go out on release day and work first time. I make lots on money doing meaningful work that I don't find particularly difficult for a bearable number of hours a week.

    Work rocks, even if it is usually a bit dull.

    Sex & Relationships:

    I left my previous job. Took a year off. Lived on my savings, and just sank into nothingness for a year, suspended most of my friendships, spent my days playing computer games. It took me a year to admit to myself what the deal was: that I was nursing a broken heart. A married collegue. Doomed from the start, of course. But we are all mostly fools, and I'm no exception. More than five years of my life. Joke is: she divorced towards the end, there. Right about the time I turned fifty and my balls turned out the lights and shut up shop. Started commenting that "marriage is so hard", sad little sparrow. I should have known what was up.

    But just too fucking late, babe. Too late. If you had done that three years earlier, maybe things would have gone down different. But is what it is.

    About a year ago I ran into this babe that I used to stare at, back when I went to this particular bar in my 30's. Small town, like I said. She came to my table, she talked to me, I moved away and she followed. But just too fucking late, babe. What you got, I just don't need or even want anymore. There's also the two kids, the wide-load ass, and the variety of quasi criminals I saw you hanging out with back when you were younger, hotter, tighter. Oh, and you also appear to be stupid. But mostly: just too fucking late.

    I would like to have had a better life, I would like to have had a boatload more pussy before my dick retired. But that's in the past, now, and it doesn't have any bearing on my future. It's over, all the angst and misery is done. I just have to find other things to enjoy.

    Life situation:

    I have bought a house. I lived in a dank apartment for years, saving all my cash for a deposit. One day, the landlord rang and said "Wombat, I want to sell the place and I need you out". I was ready. It took a couple of months of fucking about, but here I am. I fucking love the place. It's light, it has a nice big room where I can host games nights. Those friendships I put on ice for a year, just back into the group and happy to see me again. I'd love to go into detail - but I want to stay anonymous. Anyway, it's not my story to tell. Three of the people in that group had a long-term relationship break up, two actual marriages with kids. And everything I learned about those breakups just confirms everything that we say here and in the rest of the manosphere.

    But the house: sure, I'd like it to be bigger, I'd like a third bedroom, I'd like a few things. It doesn't matter. This place is big enough, I have a place for my tools and my hobbies. I'll have it paid off in six or seven years - maybe quite a bit less. And home loan interest is 3.05% or something stupid like that - it's bad for the country, but its good for me.

    Literally the only cloud on the horizon is Coronavirus.

    So what does that all have to do with posting and moderating here? Am I saying that only people in the shit will be active here?

    Well, yeah. This is a support site. This is a place for people still in Red Pill rage, or who are bewildered and need a little advice. I have always thought that mgtowforums, goingyourownway, mgtow.com etc are places that you eventually move on from. Real Life is being good to me. I don't want to cast shade on what Jagr is doing here, or for that matter what I have done here in the years I have been posting and modding, but yeah. I'm good now, thanks.

    I'm still around. Maybe I'll post now and again. I kinda feel I've said most of what I need to say, and have read most of what I need to read.

    Remember, guys: if you want a better life than the one I have had, or at least one with more pussy in it, lift. For casual no-strings sex, the only thing that women really care about is if you look hot. Money and Game won't do it. Pecs and shoulder caps will.

    And props to my newfound bro: Vitamin D. Every. Fucking. Day. 1000IU of Vitamin D daily changed my life. To every depressed loser, everyone who knows there's something subclinical wrong with them but doesn't know what, every man "on the spectrum" or "bipolar": Vitamin D. If I had a time machine and only 5 seconds to tell my younger self the most important and valuable thing he could know, "Take Vitamin D every day" would be it.

    Not really saying goodbye. As I said: I'm still around.

    Re: Living the Dream

    Congrats on the new house as the options you will have open up because of it. Storage possibilities, new hobbies, new business, there is so much more you could do. And also opens up options in the future for cash flow opportunities if you don't want to maintain a new home anymore and want to travel or live in a small apartment/condo.

    Vitamin D is crucial which is why I make it a habit to try to receive enough sun light even if I am sheltered most of the day for a variety of reasons.

    For current times of uncertainty my decision and path to move toward being debt free as possible living has shown me greater flexibility and certainty of my future. I am pretty close toward that corner where I pay off most of my debts and I can start to pay myself finally. The sooner I pay myself is the sooner I can find an ideal part time gig which pays the max money per hour. I view it as a win/win which is why I am pushing hard for that as a 2020 goal.

    Good Stuff.

    This is a place for people still in Red Pill rage, or who are bewildered and need a little advice. I have always thought that mgtowforums, goingyourownway, mgtow.com etc are places that you eventually move on from.
    There are many non-raging, well-adjusted people living great lives, need no particular advice but still hang out here.... cause it's fun. Mocking nutty women isn't raging.... it's funnier than most anything on TV. Stories - whether about XY or about a guy's own challenges or successes - alone are priceless.

    But this forum means different things to different people and serves different needs. Between your posts and moderation, did a lot for GYOW- so thank you.

    Some of you may be wondering -- who is this Jagrmeister guy? Have a look at some of my posts from MGTOW Forums--> Jagr Archive (collection of my articles)



    Stuff I do: Box, Surf, Tennis (3.5/4.0), Downhill skiing. I lift 4x a week and have for 10 years.
    Stuff I like: Comedy shows, NBA, Reading Non-Fiction (sociology, philosophy, biographies).
    Random facts: I admire Steve Jobs. Favorite travel spots (Russia, Central America).

    Re: Living the Dream

    Hey, I thought the rule was you couldn't leave as mod until you had secured a replacement. At least that's what jagr told me.

    Kidding! Kidding! He didn't say that.

    My insurance agent of 25 years retired the other day. I told him that it made me contemplate that we are all getting older. In 1996 I was the newest one on my block and now I am one of the few old-timers. If I have 15 years left, do you know that will go by in a snap? I'm shooting for 20 more, minimum.

    Change. The constant among us. It's perplexing to me, but I feel not just sad but positive, at the same time I'm waving goodbye to what is, for what's next.

    Wow, Wombat. More power to you. Live long and prosper. I've always appreciated your help and advice. Be well and stay cool.

    Re: Living the Dream

    I agree with Jag, all my psychological nuts and bolts are tightened to specs! I'm here to share my psychological mechanics handbook! How to tap and thread stripped head bolts, removing broken studs, and refitting the parts to make them seal. I've moved on from psychological repair/maintenance, to modified nitromethane! (made from mental fart gas).

    I'm here and elsewhere only because I am my brother's keeper and finder of lost souls.

    Re: Living the Dream

    Thank you Mr. Wombat. Your the Richard Petty of men going their own way far as I'm concerned. Am glad to hear your doing good too, you deserve it.

    I am going to back it down some as well. I seem to have burned out, and damn quickly at that. Unboxxed started it, but he was just the trigger, not the root cause. It's funny, for years you can't get enough, then suddenly one day, you have. Maybe we do grow out of it.

    I may be toast on the web, but otherwise, I too am living the dream. Made it to retirement island with more than enough dough to support my modest life. Old house in a quiet neighborhood. On the edge of a National Forest, the closest city's an hour away. No landlords or roommates either. One guy in one house, it's hillbilly heaven.

    Thanks guys, see you now and then.

    Wow what's this world coming to? First Harry and Meghan step back.
    Now Wombat and Frog!!!

    A tip of the fedora to both Wombat and Frog. I too live the 1 guy in 1 old cheap house lifestyle. Like Frog I made it to retirement island as well. So far so good.

    As a "why take a chance" with the virus thing I'm staying in. Been plastering and painting the living room and dining room. Freezer and fridge are well stocked. Hopefully this shit blows over. I'll have a nicely refreshed interior from staying out of the public for a while. Win, win for me.

    Re: Living the Dream

    Ohhh... about the vitamin D. I was reading on reddit about this guy who supplemented with vitamins to boost his low testosterone levels. The normal range is between 300-1200 for testosterone and this guy had a very low T level of about 140. He supplemented, as he puts it:

    • zinc and copper (100mg-6mg)
    • magnesium citrate and calcium (400mg - 1150mg)
    • vit D (5000 IU)
    • selenium (300 mcg)
    • multivitamin


    Anyways, this guy got his T level re-tested after a couple weeks/months and it turns out to be about 1300. He recommends to lower some of the doses of vitamins ( the above is a quick fix) after a couple weeks.

    The above was from a no fap thread in reddit. Additionally, not fapping causes a 145% T boost of baseline on the 7th day of abstinence.

    Another couple of things include avoiding alcohol, doing exercise, getting plenty of restful sleep (7 hours is minimum), sex (I don't recommend but hay-ho), being successful and... wait for it... manspreading.

    I think this poster before on here but its always nice to get a timely reminder for those who haven't read it.

    I've followed a similar regimen and certainly do feel much better in myself. Although I do still indulge in 1 (or 5) doubles of top-shelf spirit once or twice a week.


    Good day fellas

    Re: Living the Dream

    Well done Wombat.

    Its a good as time and place as any to say how much I appreciated your thoughts and clarity of mgtow-vision over the years since mgtowforums (9 years?).

    I sometimes ponder the possible mgtow-journey connection with the accepted stages of grief over loss (shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing, and acceptance) and reckon that wiser posters such as yourself (oh yes you are and were even back in the day) do a lot help the strugglers, stragglers and wrigglers with occasional wit-bombs and reality-grenades so thanks for inputting.

    May your enjoyment continue and .....read you again soon sometime.

    Best of luck.
