    Re: Uncomfortable situation

    I've noticed during the internet era, people seem inclined to ask for favors and help from casual friends/acquaintances. Maybe it's because they have 3458 Facebook friends, but very few sources of...
  2. Re: Women hate when guys ask for advice on how to improve their appearance (unless they're married)

    Before marriage, women want you to "be yourself" so they can accurately size up your potential as a supplier of resources and support. False advertising in the form of improved appearance isn't...
  3. Re: I wonder how much of this drivel is true

    The part about wanting support is likely true. A certain type of blue-pill guy would jump at this "opportunity". She's supposedly attractive, high libido, a virgin, wants to be married and have...
  4. Re: Oh no! The rise of lonely, single men is upon us!

    It's a great example because this is becoming a typical situation. Women are picking up the college degrees and other symbols of supposed success in the modern world. Yet below the surface of the...
  5. Re: Oh no! The rise of lonely, single men is upon us!

    Here's a couple of problems I see right away with this research. Rather than asking for marital status, they use the categories of "partnered" and "unpartnered" which allows people to come up with...
  6. Re: Oh no! The rise of lonely, single men is upon us!

    That about sums it up. This crap article presents loneliness as if it's a serious condition men urgently need to cure. We know statistically more men than ever before are living alone. So it stands...

    Re: I quit smoking after 22 years

    It's been 28 years since I quit, and still the smoking dreams come up once in a while. Nicotine and all the associated habits have a powerful hold on the mind. As RedPilledSimp mentioned, you have to...
  8. Re: Open relationships are good when they suit women, article.

    The story has the fictional quality of the usual women's romance novel, or even the Cinderella fairy tale. The woman is languishing away in an environment where her husband and no one else...

    Re: Life is absurd

    Here's a little piece of absurdity I ran across recently. They can march for reproductive freedom, while men look at them and freely choose to not reproduce.
  10. Re: Who Do You Guys Idolize Real Or Fiction?

    I didn't connect why the North Pond Hermit gets called by his full name Christopher Thomas Knight...:D Anyway I find his story interesting. Maybe my response didn't quite fit this thread, because I...
  11. Re: How long has the world by gynocentric?

    It's a good observation on underlying truths in mid 20th century pop culture. The women were sometimes portrayed as attractive, fit, attentive and submissive toward men. But that's only surface....
  12. Re: I found that married men are completely unreliable,

    It's always possible the married guys drift away because single friends are reminders of the path not taken. And they may be ashamed of how tight the leash is kept. I remember in my 20's when the...

    Re: Grandparents

    When I was young, I thought my family was uniquely screwed up. Then with much more experience I understand there is frequently some serious dysfunction going on when seeing past the surface of any...
  14. Re: Who Do You Guys Idolize Real Or Fiction?

    One character I find especially interesting lately is Christopher Knight, otherwise known as the North Pond Hermit. He spent 27 years living by himself in a tent. Here's a quote:

    Re: Grandparents

    I never lived near either set of grandparents, so I didn't have a lot of contact with them. But overall, they were a messed up miserable bunch. My mother's father was an alcoholic, although never...
  16. Re: I found that married men are completely unreliable,

    I'm guessing most of your friends aren't too far into their married years. They are unreliable during the early years of marriage, when the wife hasn't yet entirely broken their spirit. Later they...

    Re: Anti-sexual interest pills?

    For incels who want to reduce their sex drive, I have a simple two-part non-chemical suggestion. First, less internet porn. Then more getting out and looking around the real world. In the United...
  18. Re: Do any of you have (much) younger women hitting on you?

    I have sort of a gift/curse that men and women will approach and tell me their life stories without any provocation. Most of the time I don't kid myself that they want anything more than some...
  19. Re: Do any of you have (much) younger women hitting on you?

    It seems likely the answer for this situation. In case you haven't been through a typical MLM pitch, these people are hungry and aggressive. It's not just a matter of you buying their product, they...

    Re: A sex strike, you say?

    I've been thinking of it as playing a bluff with the one card they have left. A few generations ago, they had sex and reproductive capacity. Kids were a positive economic benefit and might even help...
  21. Re: Alternative dwellings for independence (tiny houses, stealth vans, etc)

    This topic hits home for me because I live in an apartment in one of the (unfortunately) popular cities in the US. I just got wacked with a 25% rent increase. It's enough to knock me out of...

    Re: Do Not Lay With Anger

    To add a little more detail, this is biblical advice usually translated for modern consumption as "don't go to bed angry with your spouse". Closer to the literal meaning is "don't marry anger". ...

    Re: Why Dads Matter In A Child's Life

    It is an important issue. Part of the challenge in replying here is the depth of the topic. For many years, I thought my father didn't qualify as a positive role model. He gradually came to dislike...
  24. Re: My personal view on older men simping.

    Some of the problem is behavioral conditioning. Most of these guys got married many years ago. Marriage is an institution. Remember the discussions of "institutional men" from the movie Shawshank...
  25. Re: I took another lap around the dating site - somehow it's gotten worse

    What you are seeing online seems to be mirroring what's going on "IRL". A couple of weeks ago I started noticing the weight issue among women. Then I read the thread here on tattoos. I invented a...
