I see a lot of punks around here using "being your own man" as a solution for anything and everything. From not getting respect, to [email protected] charges.
Reality has a set of implicit rules. You don't get to do your own thing and redefine what a good life is, what status is, what will make you not want to ki11 yourself in the mornings.
If you are a man b1tchin about women and thinking the no 1 source of revenue for women is alimony - you are not a MGTOW, you're just a man b1tching.
If you think being more isolated, losing the few social connections you actually have is "doing you" and protecting yourself, you are wrong. You become the no. 1 target for a false accusation in your area, the easy target. Better hope no little girl goes missing in your area - because no "stand your ground" law will defend you from a crowd of irrational moms and ouragged media.
Meditating and self esteem won't make you happy, self educating and "learning" by yourself won't make you competent. Your mind is a social tool - it does not operate as a singular unit. Your skill is defined by the returns your create in your enviroment - it is improved with feedback, inspired by others and fueled by the need to be validated. No external feedback, your wireless power transfer system will mean jack.
Self esteem or rather self respect - in a similar way needs external confirmation. You need to be loved, cared for. One way or another your self image will be fueled by external feedback - if you are the grumpy old man than nobody saw in months, you will be that grumpy bitter old man - as early as in your 30s.
Caveat for the old school MGTOWS: I am not saying MGTOW is bad, go marry, I am saying the way people use MGTOW to justify millenial isolationism and reinforce their bitch arse attitude towards life is self enablement. You have bergs that talk about women like they are another species worried they will get divorce raped like Gates. They on another plain of self delusion.
HotGirlSummer is in effect, it has never been easier to score.
Go out, Avoid the bitter bitches that got fat or had a quarantine baby - in a polite way Talk to the rest of the girls about anything, while not taking yourself too seriously. Escalate, isolate, bust a nut, don't be possesive Repeat
The whole world is gonna be a massive rave this summer, do not miss out just because you have a warped vision of what the world is, and what it wants from you.
Bonus tip #1 - Travel and hospitality is sooo fuckin cheap right now. Even if you do not do anything but sit and play Sims - get the cheapest plane ticket you can find, check in the cheapest but decent Airbnb in the area and just change the scenery and the pizza place you order your friday "cheat meal" from. That alone will defog your brain for a few days.
Bonus tip #2 - number 2 - if you are a sperg that can't say: "Hi, I like your look. I want to know more about you" then pretend you are a social media millenial and ask them if they wanna do tiktoks or have a street photography session. I know you want to - so don't even pretent, own it and take advantage of the attention seeking female peers.
Caveat for men over 24 - this isn't geeky or creepy anymore - every alpha dude under 30 living in cities is social media conscious. A "content producer" is a "entepreneur" now. Asking for collabs is actually really classy and elegant way to hang out with women in a state of semi dress, while making it feel profesional, non needy and not making them feel like sluts. Just remember - stripper rules apply: The need to get you of your entepreneur high-horse. Once you thirsty, they got you and you our of the fucking box, and into the OF subscriber box.
