    Where are all the mgtow men gone?

    I like this website very much and it has shown me a very different perspective of how I thought relationships can be like when compared to Disney movies or any fairy tales and I read the horror stories and have felt That I should go mgtow but everywhere around me people have partners and girlfriends or are trying to get them and the statistics about dating, marriage and birth rates seem fake to me and I donít see any difference or change. Why do I feel that way?

    We are still a minority in society. Not a majority. Plus many of us don't speak up about our mindset. It's seldom productive.

    I do see way more MGTOW based comments to articles and vids on the web. I think many of us prefer to be anonymous, and just live a great life.

    In the region where you live, is there strong social pressure to be a traditional husband, father, and sacrificial protector?

    When you ask why you feel that way, which way are you talking about? Wanting to be a MGTOW? Wanting to know why you don't hear from more men in your area who are going MGTOW?

    O.G., I like your Nietzsche quote. It sheds like on some on some of the responses I've heard over the years to my individualist perspective.

    Re: Where are all the mgtow men gone?

    I agree, this site and the MGTOW philosophy is quite fun. I love this site because it's a site that men get together and talk about things that interest us and share things in common. That's a big deal to me, because I grew up being bullied and an outcast all because of my disability, but MGTOW has shown me that there are good men still left in the world I can share my life experiences with and they don't judge; instead they either help or relate.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    I was in effect MGTOW before "MGTOW" was a thing.

    I suspect there are a lot of men naturally going their own way because it feels right.
    Just be being themselves without being "red pilled" (hate that expression).

    Dude you also just waved a red cape. In front of a bull.
    Our bull here is hard to spot. It looks just like a old school pay phone.

    Going off of what alot of what everyone else here said,

    most mgtows are either natural mgtow (they went there own way before knowing what mgtow even is) or they are mgtow aware but ghost in plain sight because blue pillers with get triggered and possibly violence to them for voicing their "unorthodox" views on life and especially women

    We're not "socially acceptable" because we refuse to feed the gynocentric social trends. This shouldn't be surprising as primary marketing is aimed at women, children and blue-pilled (gyno-worshipping) men. We aren't feeding the familial money-making machine, therefore we are simply "there". Ignored and under-represented.

    In the beginning, it only ate men, now it's coming for the women and children, and nothing can stop it.

    ForeverBachelor, you can't know this but the bull is an inside reference to me and you will notice my avatar. Your boldified comment suggests that you are not MGTOW, a requirement to be here.

    I should point out to everyone that this newbie is a young man of 18 and he has already passed the test of resolve:

    https://www.goingyourownway.com/mgto...61/#post190161

    Perhaps you figure to "go MGTOW" is something more than your expressed resolve. It's not. It's living your life with that resolve.

    Continue to ask questions, please. You're a brother.

    Same as myself and others here.

    As for hating the term red-pilled? Yeah I have issues myself with labels.

    Red-pilled just means seeing the truth, as far as anyone can.

    When one goes their own way it’s because they see the truth about relationships.

    It makes little odds whether we’ve been red-pilled from our own experiences or by learning from the experiences of others, the effect is the same.

    Re: Where are all the mgtow men gone?

    Iím definitely a mgtow but Iím sometimes conflicted on whether it was a blessing or curse to take this path as I never experienced any of the negative things others on this sub have but also never received any kind of the intimacy, romance, first experiences. Iíve never expected my life to take such a different direction compared to most people around me but I think Iím trying to be content and be grateful for the life I have been given. You mentioned in a sub before that why people like me still want to experience a relationship is because most havenít been hit with the same intensity as mgtow men and maybe that will help me cement myself as a mgtow.

    When you see others touch a hot stove, you know it's hot and don't need to touch it to know what they know.

    Sometimes a hot stove is shaped like a woman.

    The only thing you're cementing are the scars on your hands from touching the stove that others have convinced you that it's hot!

    All I can say is Burn'voiage'!

    So you feel that you may be missing out on experiences?

    This, if I may be so bold, is the lure on the inexperienced mind.

    As humans we crave experience – why else would people climb Everest and fly into space?

    And when it’s done, assuming you survive, you have a story to tell, AND THAT’S ALL!

    Well, we’ve survived to tell our stories.

    The only question is do you wish your life to be littered with stories of woe or stories of accomplishment?

    Most of my stories are those of woe because I knew no better; if I’d have had the insight given in this forum when I was younger things may have been different.

    I say “may have been” because even when the truth is thrust in your face many reject it.

    You can reject the truth, but the consequences you own, there's no escape from consequences, it's as sure as stink on shit!

    Re: Where are all the mgtow men gone?

    Many men are late bloomers when it comes to understanding sexual market place dynamics. That is why often young men think being in a relationship with a woman or marrying young is a good idea.

    Young women have the upper hand not only because from 18-23 they are in their prime, but also because they learn about sexual market place dynamics while they are still in junior high/high school.

    So, in your age range you are not going to find a lot of men going their own way....yet.

    Like others have said the best teacher is life. And lessons taught by life can be brutal or wonderful experiences. Iron sharpens iron and this is where men gain ground in the sexual market place. Life experience.

    But once you reach a certain point of understanding you start to know in your heart as man that these pursuits of the gynocentric world are trivial and pointless. Once you reach that level of mastery you begin to wonder what you can do with so much free time on your own path as a man?
