@adam-l there is a shrinking pool of not-shitty stuff out there. I enjoy scifi and fantasy, which seem to be the hardest hit unfortunately.
I was hyped for the Witcher until they made the story more about Jennefer and Ciri than the actual fucking witcher. It's not as bad as some, at least Ciri struggles in her training instead of spontaneously being the most power badass bitch ever but the focus of the story is all wrong.
I get what you're all saying, about loyalty and expectations
So no, I'm not expecting things from these girls the way you think. They are telling me unsolicited bullshit for no reason. I'm not asking them for monogomy or anything
They are randomly telling me they only want me for no reason. It is unforced
I'm not particularly asking them any serious questions. They just keep telling me shit primarily of their own accord and my dumbass keeps listening to what they say
My buddy had deep emotional connection to a mutual dance partner of ours who was married. Neither of us pursued her after finding that out, but she is the best dance partner ever so there's some emotional connection
Evidently he leaned on her for his psychological stuff apparently I found out tonight, because She's deploying (military) in two days and evidently was extremely emotional tonight on her last night out.
I ended up telling him she was dating some guy while evidently married and it destroyed him for some reason.
I thought everyone knew that, him included, I even told him that a month ago
This girl literally told me she was seeing a guy. The guy literally told me he was seeing her. And when my friend asked her she denied it yet told me non-chalantly. My friend and I had essentially the same dance partner dynamic, and we both got different stories from her, the one she told me matching what her fuckbuddy told me
This is just a prime example where I got the truth and he didn't
So I'm asking when you can even know any moreRead More
I didn't mean to post my question in the weapons appreciation tribe. I think I mis-clicked somehow in TRP red
Just gonna continue it in public square instead
"This is going to be a bit of a black pill/dark red pill question:
Can you actually trust a woman to be consistently honest to the point you can reliably believe virtually everything she says?
If YES, when do you know that?
If NO, how do you ever allow yourself to have any meaningful connection with one short of knowing everything she's doing?"
@TwoInchesOfShaft there's things about Walsh I want to like, but his view of all this is too high up. By which I mean, he's always on about how certain dynamics between the sexes made for a well-functioning society. However, he doesn't seem to care at all about the individual in that society. So yes, traditional marriage made for a stable and steadily advancing society for hundreds of years but he completely ignores that the social contract is broken and its not coming back short of a total collapse. He can't see the forest for the trees.
@Vermillion-Rx you've got this framed up all wrong. It doesn't matter whether you can believe her. She's going to so whatever she's going to do. You're going to do whatever you're going to do. As long as those two things line up, you'll be doing her.
The glass is already broken.
@MentORPHEUS thanks for this man, healthy masculinity is what I'm striving for and itsbalways good to know that I'm not alone. I've never heard of that scale before but looking at it is very interesting, especially how some of the things that can be very stressful are ones most people would consider "good", like a new family member ect.
That first date really threw me for a loop, but I'm really glad I decided to go on the second one. I got out of my head and had a lot of fun.
Quick question for you guys opinion.
I had a not-great date last night (made a little FR about it, basically I made a frame error but the girl had serious mental health issues so I'm glad it didn't happen) and now I have another one tonight with a girl (let's call her Girl 2) that things have gone quite well with but I'm wondering if I should reschedule it for tomorrow or rally the troops for tonight. I'm feeling a little funky just because of last night's experience, and I didn't get a great night's sleep. On the other hand, I have been a stud on my previous dates with Girl 2 and enjoy her company, so going out with her will definitely be invigorating.
What I'm getting at is, when you guys are feeling off (for whatever reason, not necessarily the same as my story here) do you pull back a bit or do you get after it again immediately? I've had both strategies work for me in the past and I'm curious what you guys think about it.Read More
