Get your value up, muscles up, tinder profile poppin and be done with this nonsense. I used to be this way in most my 20s. When I had wack game, a ****ty wardrobe, low self esteem and the works. Guarantee all these dudes in here wouldnt be hung up on one girl that isnt feeling them anymore if they had more options in their DMs. Its a simple goddamn equation. Suffer more and deal with more low quality women and romanticize ****ty relationships you want to get back to because you yourself are ****ty/dont have options.

or level the **** up.
"the girl next door", "elf queen", no contact for months but you dont have new options yet. ridiculous. when all you gotta do is hit that gym, takes pics and upload them.

We really are a weak generation of men. ****s sad. Our ancestors had to hunt tigers, work in steel mills or go to war to get a decent woman.
All you gotta do is get in shape and spin plates and we cant even do that.

No wonder the women are so out of hand nowadays. How we gonna check women when we arent even willing to improve ourselves? Look at us. Lame. Talking to my past self as well.

I am the dumper, but still feel kinda down in the dumps about it.

I have admit that I love her, but simply can't seem to get along with her.

It's 5 months in, and pretty much once a week we end up in a little argument.

She just rubs me up the wrong way, by either saying something borderline disrespectful... Or she will get argumentative over something that isn't worth arguing over.

She has been hot headed since the day I met her.. so it's not something that has developed over time.

Last night she began arguing with me, so I told her to leave my house. I couldn't deal with her BS at all.

So she grabbed all her bel from my house and called her an Uber.

While in the uber she sent me a few abusive messages. She told me to fuk off

However a couple of hours later, when her anger resided she sent me the following.

You broke my heart
I thought you loved me
Are you going to leave things like this

Anyway I don't know what the F to do now.

I think too much damage has been done. Breaking up with her, then getting back with her, will more likely become a toxic cycle.

I just don't see things working out with her in the long run.

Has anyone got into a relationship which felt somewhat toxic?
Yes, best to walk away but you already know this. It's a waste of time and energy, well done for standing your ground. There's a reason you broke up with her, the many threads over these months. She sounds like a fvcking headache bro, there are MANY women that will fall into your frame. This girl was never really in your frame. Much easier to start fresh and enter a new relationship with solid frame. Someone less damaged, she's a loose canon I don't care how hot she is or how good the sex is, it's never worth it long term.

I would advise against even banging her again (because you could, but thats easy, that's weak, she'll be on some new D in 2 weeks if not sooner. Take everything you've learned from this and be better next time.

I broke up with my ex GF of 2 years recently and it was hard because I do love her, but love isn't enough when faced with so many red flags and billions of hotter younger, more compatible women out there.

Good luck soulforge you're a good man and you are destined for better.

Your right man... It's been 4-5 months of fukin headache.. back and forth...

She has been like this from day one... It's her personality, moody, aggressive..

I think she does have high interest in me, but she can't help reacting the way she does.

Yeah because she's damaged and mentally off-key - probably because of the partying and broken hearts. Remember, women can't really fvck a dude without emotional connection, so if she's had feelings for so many other men she will be broken mentally. None of the threads you posted said she was feminine and submissive, pure headache, grief and confrontation. Don't look back.

She is 24 so unlikely she has smashed hundreds of dudes.. but she does have depression and anxiety.. also drinks alot.. and been burnt by her ex..

All that comes into play

She drinks a lot and I remember you saying she used to party a lot - that's minimum 15 bodies right there. Damaged, confrontational, argumentative, she's trash.

Had similiar situation a month ago, except that it's been a 4 years long one and she didn't have that many red flags actually. But after finally realizing that we want different futures for ourselves I understood that sooner or later either her or me are going to get tired and not feel good with the direction we'd head to. I'm not into breaking up after 10+ years so despite such a long time together and feelings being strong, decided to grit my teeth and do it. It's better for both of us, even if it really sucks short term

I would say most of us here have. It is probably how most guys find sosuave. If you feel the relationship is toxic then you did the right thing.

In the first 5 months she is going to be on her best behaviour and the best her she will ever be. If she is toxic this soon then you did the right thing. Guys need to remind themselves we are not put on this earth to entertain toxic women.

Oh the addicition to social media - what is it with chicks these days...constantly seeking validation by posting selfies

I would love to meet a chick who didnt give a **** about insta or facebook - would be so much easier.

The amount of dudes sliding in their DM's....they love the attention

Day 1
I've been a bit back and forth with my ex since we broke up, and I'm taking the No Contact seriously from today. I'm going to get a gym membership, explore hobbies, and hang out with my bro's more often. I plan to write here once a week, but we'll see how it plays out

Buddy, no contact means, even if she contacts you, you do not respond, and she has to come to your house and still beg, and still and you go no contact. Did you dump her or you got dumped?

Okay, I'll definitely keep that in mind. I got dumped, she usually pulls the 'let's break up' card frequently, but this time I said enough is enough. But then we got to talking a while after(I reached out), and then she found out I had a fling with an ex during the time we were apart, she got mad, and I told myself I'm not going down this rabbit hole again. So I've muted and archived her chats everywhere, and deleted everything

First off, you do not owe her any explanation of what you did during the time you were apart. She is using you as validation. When you realize that she is contacting you, you just do not pick up, and let it go to voicemail - this will destroy her confidence. After all of contacting and you not answering, she will feel embarrassed and stop. You did a great job deleting everything.

You need to hit the gym, follow up a program like Jim Stoppani's, go hardcore, try intermittent fasting, make getting fit and buy new clothes if you need to make yourself feel better. Get on all the dating apps and just talk to girls, and meet them.

Naturally you will find someone who will care for you.

I've been in the same position as you man. PM Me if you need more personal advice.

Thank you so much for the advice. I will check Jim Stoppani out and try intermittent fasting as well. I will definitely PM you if anything comes up. Very glad to hear someone was also in my shoes, I know I can do this.

Day 4
So I've been doing a good job not thinking about her and doing other things. But I had a wet dream of her giving me a pretty intense BJ, so I've been in a mood. But I still don't feel like reaching out or even talking to her, I'm still spinning plates and enjoying letting game be my default (I haven't played game with anyone since the relationship started so I'm really rusty)

Just rub one off (and don't fantasize about her while doing it) and move on, brother. If you are feeling especially horny in general, get on a dating app and start some swiping. These women aren't long term solutions, but they are low hanging fruit and can reach that "itch" you have right now so that you don't do anything to jeopardize your healing process as to your ex. Don't fall into the trap of makeup sex (which I have done myself many times).

Hey man, thanks for the insight. I was honestly looking forward to attempting makeup sex, but I'll definitely steer very far away from that now. Concerning 'rubbing one off', I've stopped doing that for over a year now, I realised it was way too easy, and having that alternative gave me less reason (I'm a bit shy and introverted) to talk to girls. So I'm trying to use the new drive to go out there and make magic happen, although no success so far.
I'm also considering reaching out to a plate I stopped spinning, we were really good on the friends-with-benefits thing, but I told her it's over because I wanted to get back with said ex (definitely was suffering from oneitis looking at this). Should I try to get her back on or I should just go out and find new plates to spin? (This is an open-ended question, I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on this)
