    Why I Don't Want to be in a Relationship

    I just finished writing this piece, which explains the main reason I don't want to be in a relationship. You may or may not find it interesting. I make no predictions or money-back guarantees. Well, actually, I guess I could offer a money-back guarantee... Anyway, check it out if you are so inclined.

    Good stuff. I can definitely relate. For me, it basically boils down to what I want vs what I don't. I value my time and my money much more than I value chasing women. I have a simple formula- don't want kids= no marriage, no marriage= no dating, no dating = more time and money do the things that actually matter to me.

    Re: Why I Don't Want to be in a Relationship

    What I wanted in a woman was simple:

    - Virgin
    - Not fat
    - No tattoos
    - Not unpleasant (no trashy attitude, drinking problem, constant swearing, aggressive, etc.)
    - Raised in a good family (or if not, still possess values and morals)
    - Not ugly (notice I didn't say hot, supermodel, etc.)

    The rest of the stuff you'll build together.

    I thought these were reasonable expectations. I was obviously insane. Modern women are the exact opposite of this. And even if you find that unicorn (a unicorn now being one that has 1/3 of the stuff above), your balls are still always in a vice grip near a meat grinder because if she wakes up one day and decides she's not happy, she can just initiate a divorce and destroy your entire life. You can thank society and the courts for that.

    Or, you can learn to not be a slave to sex, work less, have more, zero stress, go through life at your own pace, all at the cost of a little "loneliness" which can be completely negated by finding fortitude from within.

    Good article though.

    .

    "
    Raised in a good family (or if not, still possess values and morals)" is a tough one.

    "
    Not fat" eliminates two-thirds.

    "Virgin" eliminates 97% of them.

    Re: Why I Don't Want to be in a Relationship

    I don't want a relationship with the bitches is simple: I'm happier without them. I enjoy spending my money on things that makes me happy, such as my man cave, beer, food and seeing my best friend. If I had a woman, I couldn't have those things, except the beer, which I would be drinking more of.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    I'm happier without them. At my age, I don't need anymore of their shit. My signature line says it best.
    Stay away from women. They will only break your heart.

    Re: Why I Don't Want to be in a Relationship

    It seems to me that the modern "relationship" if you can call that is all about sex. That is why Tinder is so popular, swipe left or right. Marriage isn't forever and women get rewarded for breaking the contract "Till death do us part". I don't need a woman to cook and clean for me as I can do that myself. I don't need a woman to spend money on as I can spend it on myself instead. There are no guarantees that by having someone or having kids you won't die alone anyway.

    So what is the point?

    Have been in a couple of relationships. Sexytime was fun. The rest of it was a bit of a drag and a drain on my time.

    Besides sex? Well, the only other upsides (to a relationship) that I can see are:

    1) companionship/friendship/support [can get from other sources -- friends and family]

    2) physical affection apart from sex [can get partially met through pets]

    3) personal growth (some guys use relationships this way)

    I don't agree with this one. I think it's more like 98%

    98% when you're fishing the 18 yo pool! After that it's 100%, topped off with ugly dressings!

    Iíll never do a LTR again. I know how it ends. They burn your life down, and leave for the next guy to level them up. As you sit in the ashes trying to rebuild your life again.

    Put your hand on top of a wood stove, severe 3rd degree burns? When you get back from the hospital, are you going to put your hand back on top of the wood stove?

    Re: Why I Don't Want to be in a Relationship

    Unless I’m mistaken, most of you are in the same boat – not limitless beings with unbounded potential to actualize all possibilities, but humble humans with limited time, energy, and attention. You have to make choices about how you spend your limited resources.”

    Another awesome article Eddie well done! You’ve expressed the reasoning perfectly yet again. The time and effort, stress and worry, all better spent on other things given our fundamentally limited time and energy on the planet. To us the juice is not worth the squeeze, wether we figured that out quickly or slowly it’s the way we view things now. Great work mate!
