So I'm relatively late to the game and wish to hell I had found TRP when I was a teen. I look like an alpha (short, but extremely muscled and toned) so even bigger men back down when I look at them the wrong way, so it's always been easy for me to get women short term. My problem was that I'd be a white knight to chase away their asshole man, but then prove to be just as fucking beta, by allowing myself to become attached.
Now I'm 30. A pretty little thing talked me into leaving my psycho ex-wife and fighting for custody of my children (she had been hurting them physically in her bi-polar, schitzo episodes) and after I had caught it on camera, i set the wheels moving. VERY long and disturbing story short, she won 50% for having a vagina, but I did manage to steer clear of ANY payments to her of any kind, and in fact am receiving child support from my step daughters' father, as the court decided that he had no contact with her and that I was the real father in the courts' eyes. And this pretty little thing that had been throwing herself at me and begging for me to do it so we could get away and be together... suddenly decided she wasn't ready for children, and took off.
So, now I'm here. I've finally accepted that AWALT, and am ready to dive head in. I've started working out again, and in just 5 days, see massive results, and women have been trying to move in on me... but I don't want to go in the way I did before. I'm still not happy with who I am, and I need to better myself to ensure that I can keep plates going to avoid giving in to any one, and falling into my past state.
I'm trying to go into monk mode, but as you can imagine, having children for 3.5 days a week, pulls me to the side. My youngest goes to school in a few months, so that's better. The biggest problem though is that all of my strengths in life were my strength. I was into lifting, parkour, gymnastic tricks... but I'm now 30, have a neck injury from work, and I hardly think that walking around the room on my hands and then doing some handstand pushups would impress as many chicks as it did when I was a teen.
TLDR: I'm wondering if you guys could list me off some new hobbies I could get into on my off time that would increase my value. A new language is a good one but new languages are extremely hard to learn later in life. What are some other good ideas?
