You've been in an LTR since the 00s or earlier? Same women?You're right, there was a stigma to it, I would have been embarrassed to have my name be seen on there, there was a feeling at the time that OLD was for losers. Now it's the primary way to get a date, from what I understand. But I've missed all that, I've been in a LTR for a long time.
What about today's society is healthy? The high cost of living? Growing sexless guys that will turn America into Japan? It's not about healthy or unhealthy it's just the trend things are going. High numbers of blackpilled guys tuning into blackpill content in youtube is a symptom of a trend and unhealthy situations lead there.zekko said:Someone once told me that it feels good to feel sorry for yourself. Doesn't sound particularly healthy though.
Not necessarily. Part of your brain checks off. It's like you don't feel bad that there are millionaries out there that own a private plane or yacht because you'll never own one in your life? How did you feel about all of the opportunity costs with women while you were in a LTR?zekko said:Yeah but if the opportunity is there for the next guy (maybe even effortless), but not for you, that could be depressing.
You have an opportunity cost being in a relationship from meeting other potentially hotter or nicer women. Is that depressing to you or causing you to resent your SO? It doesn't because it's checked off. Same thing with blackpillers, if you have developed a comfortable rut that doesn't involve women, then you are not going to care if someone other guy effortlessly gets women as long as it doesn't interfare with your own little world. With modern tech, it's easier for guys, and people in general, to build little worlds for themselves and echo chambers.
I like retro-70s portrayals in modern movies (ie Licorice Pizza, X, Joker), and even music videos (Lavender Haze, Taylor Swift) - has that green and wooden and pastel colours....not sure how the modern retro-portrayals compare with your lived-in experience.zekko said:Lol. 70s. Catholic schools are top notch, but being in a boys only high school probably cost you a lot of practice socializing with females. Those are formative years.
