Low SMV, no income, depressed. Should I even bother gaming women?

January 20, 2018

I'm a 6/10 based on natural looks, but that doesn't get me the girls I want. I've been working out for 7 months and have put on at least 12 pounds (I'm 6'1", 175lbs), but I want to put on at least another 10lbs and build more muscle, which I anticipate will take at least another 6 months.

I have no income at the moment...I'm interviewing for jobs and getting close, but at this time just living off of my savings.

I've been suffering from depression for the last year or so. I'm a lot better than I was 9 months ago, and I'm doing everything I can to get myself out of it, but I'm still not where I want to be mentally.

I can pull girls who are 5's or 6's, but fucking low-quality women just makes me more depressed. I've gone on dates with some high-quality women in the last year but my depression gets in the way of making anything happen.

Has anyone else been in this position? I know that getting good at gaming women takes practice, but I'm not OK with where I am at in life right now, and I know I need to have my shit together if I want to get the quality of woman I desire.

Any comments or advice is appreciated. Thanks for your input.

Yes. It will help build the callous up to handle rejection better.

Get a girl with the face of a 5 and the ass of an 8 and youll feel better.

I don't think income matters. I have seen drunk homeless guys do good approaches on attractive women and get a positive response. So its all attitude. It may be a cliché but there are countless examples.

LOL drunk homeless guys? Come on. I get your point though, money isn’t everything, but it’s definitely ONE of the things.

I'm in the same situation, except I'm very short and bald. If you have hair, go gaming women.

Shave it.

[–]beastlyadventurer0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Rather than shaving it.Grow a hairbun with sides faded and grow a beard.Just look at Vikings's hairstyles and beards.No fucks will be given when you are short and have viking traits.

[–]PunkSmell0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yes to a beard, definitely a no to any hair if you’re bald or balding.

I shave every two days, the problem is the shape of my head.

What is the matter with it, is it square?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
