New to TRP. I used to lurk on Reddit and decided to jump ion here. Stats: 28M, virgin, 5’11, 190, BF% unknown but higher than I want. Financial: Not good. Making less than 30k/year and less than 5k in savings.
Just got into lifting about 2 months ago. Already seen tons of progress. Lost 15 pounds in the past 2 months.
Goals: Overarching: Continue to perfect the ideal male in my mind and adhere my daily choices to conform to that image. Specific Goals: Health: I’d like to be 170 by Jan 1, then reevaluate whether I need to lose more or focus on muscle building. Currently lifting 5x/week and cardio 5x/week. Financial: Get into a new line of work within the next year. I’m working through some software development courses - I’d like to make that my career path for better pay and the possibility of remote work. Currently working through The Odin Project to learn front end (HTML, CSS, JS). Also have a couple of mentors in this area. I’d love to be making 80k in the next 5 years. I also need to build some sort of retirement plan but currently have no knowledge on how. Sexual: Still a virgin. I grew up in a religious home which steered me away from sex outside of marriage. Still hold to some of those values, but would like to make these decisions myself. That being said, using porn heavily right now - somewhat addicted. Goal is 90 days w/o PMO to begin resetting my brain (it’s caused some weird attractions and killed normal attractions). Mental: there used to be a sidebar with a reading list on r/TheRedPill - is that somewhere here?
The more I look at the world, it’s obvious to me that all women want alpha males and all men want to be alpha males. I’ve been ultra beta my whole life - and have hated it. The women I’ve been attracted to have almost always pushed me into the friends zone. I’m sick of having others classify me that way and classifying myself that way.
I’d love any advice any could provide. Ready to be part of a group of men who actually want to be the best version and aren’t blinded by the stupidly of our current western world.Read More
