The power went out in my Bay Area hotel after Mr. Paisley had gone down to the front desk and I am in a pitch black hotel room waiting for the murderer to chop me into tiny pieces. So I have that to look forward to, which is nice.

I stopped in 2009 and met him in 2013. I didn’t have any particular opinion about dating a smoker. My parents and sister are smokers. I was ready to quit.

ChibsFilipTelfordd

I dont think theyd not be attracted to a non smoker


Orange_Paisley

For some women it’s a very strict no. Some women in particular have aversions to certain scents including tobacco. Unfortunately for me I grew up in a tobacco haze and am immune to it. The smell, that is. I’d probably would have died of prolonged exposure to 2nd hand smoke long before I started smoking.

sleuthoftrades1

This. The fact that he is still an option means that her friends didn't tell her that he was bad in the sack.


TheBookOfSeil

His objective was to smash, obviously, not care about their pleasure, so from women's perspective, he's "bad," but he got what he wanted and that's good from his perspective.


sleuthoftrades1

But hes obv not bad in bed, because if he was, that would be point #1 and he wouldnt be an option even if he was a good guy.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

True true


TheBookOfSeil

Women don't really care that much about hot men being bad in bed. They just might not be a repeat customer, but they'll still jump into bed with him once. Maybe to see just how bad he actually is.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

>Women don't really care that much about hot men being bad in bed. Well that earns the medal for dumbest PPD comment ive seen today. Cmon lol! You want to repeat!

Dude, if you're a 6' white/black/latino guy, you're just wasting a gift. If I were 6' tall, I would literally have next to zero dating problems. Seriously, unless you have a small dick, have moderate to severe mental health issues, or are destitute the only thing holding you back is yourself. Even ugly guys have quite a bit of success as long as they are tall.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

sleuthoftrades1

There are definitely a lot of hiking groups on MeetUp. So if you're just looking to build a wider network, you can start there. You'll have to wade through the old people though. But for your age group, what I would suggest is going to one of the Summit Climbing gyms they have there (or the other brands, don't remember them). Take the 101 class, there were a lot of hot girls there when I lived in Dallas. If you're 6' you will have a massive advantage climbing, and girls will dig that. I think the 101 classes are free for members too. So what you can do is take it multiple times to meet girls and then say hello when you see them at other times. If you're worried about people noticing, you can always go around to different ones because I think the membership works at all locations. And there's like 7 in the DFW area. Then start back at the first one like 2 or 3 months later lol. Climbing has a lot of downtime to rest or just because you need to wait while other people go. Good chance to say hello to girls you met during 101. That should keep you busy for a while. There's definitely bike riding groups in the city with young people. Try to find them through FB. I think desperation mode is getting a dog and just trying to meet people at dog parks.

sleuthoftrades1

Hiking sucks in Dallas. The only good one nearby is Cedar Ridge, which is busy and does have a lot of hot girls around. Oak Cliff is empty. Dinosaur Valley is okay. Eagle Mountain is ok. Saw more hot girls at Eagle Mountain.

Historical-Agency335

sweet. you going to get surgery or what's your plan.


NeuroplasticSurgery

I think the biggest hurdle for me ever getting into another serious LTR is that I've become addicted to the feeling of living alone. When you first wake up in the morning, no one else on earth knows. There are no expectations immediately foisted onto you from your first moments of consciousness. You can go for a long run, or ease into your day with breakfast, coffee, and a book. You can hone your hobbies for hours at a time. You can go anywhere or do anything on a whim, without the burden of another person's desires or the time burned on reaching consensus. If you get bored or lonely you can call up a friend and go out, or head over to their place and chill, drink, play video games. Or you could go the entire day not saying a word to another soul. Whatever you want. You can have no routine or a very strict productivity routine, which likely could not withstand the complications and flexibility required to have another person or family in the mix. Of course the tradeoff is that you'll get lonely sometimes, and you could die alone and no one would know for days at a time, until maybe a friend or your job called the cops for a wellness check. But I feel like I'm always going to value having a private spot to return to where I don't have to interact with anyone if I don't feel like it.


_mwk

I can't relate at all. I lived alone for a month this summer in a huge house and it still feels haunting. I thought I liked living alone in college but all my friends lived in the same building, so after my nice alone time I could just go and hang out with them as if we lived together. but being truly alone felt so cold, quiet and lonely.


NeuroplasticSurgery

Yeah, I will say that it's nice having good friends in the same building. I'm in the same boat, for the time being. I might get creeped out if I lived alone in a big house in the woods, but honestly it does sound really appealing on one level, especially if the surroundings are scenic. I would get so much outdoor reading done lol.


_mwk

being in close proximity with friends removed the lonely and quiet part of living alone that I really didn't like this time around. it does sound relaxing and appealing on paper, even after having that just reading it now makes me crave quiet calm days alone but it got old very fast for me, especially at night when it got super quiet, dark and really creepy.


TheBookOfSeil

>I think the biggest hurdle for me ever getting into another serious LTR is that I've become addicted to the feeling of living alone. Same. Living alone or being single is the path of least resistance. The more ingratiated you get into modern living, the more obligations you have along with it. Want to live alone? Gotta get a decent job to pay the bills. Want friends? You'll have to at least talk and hang out with them somewhat regularly. Want a family? Get ready to do all of that plus wake up early and do extra chores.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

The best is living alone but near a lot of ppl. My housing situation in college was like that and i loved it


Willow-girl

> > > Of course the tradeoff is that you'll get lonely sometimes, and you could die alone and no one would know for days at a time, until maybe a friend or your job called the cops for a wellness check.

NarniaFox

Is there really any benefit from changing sugar to maltose syrup?


_mwk

no there's not. sugar is sugar is sugar is sugar. they're all equal, only honey stands out in terms of benefits.


NarniaFox

What about stevia?


_mwk

stevia isn't a sugar, it's a sweetener but it doesn't actually have any sugar molecules. it doesn't have any calories, so it's great for weight loss.


NarniaFox

Ah, got it, thanks :)


_mwk

you're welcome! it has a slight aftertaste though, be sure to try it before incorporating it in something to see if you like it.


NarniaFox

Thanks! I got a jam with syrup *and* stevia and now I wonder whether it's any better than a regular one or not. At least it has a bit less calories I guess. But I want to try baking with stevia, so thanks for the warning :) I'm trying to balance out my husband and my diet. He's got a bit heavier recently and I tend to lose weight as if I was a fucking greyhound, so it's a bit tricky.


TheBookOfSeil

What are you using it for? If it's just for sweetener and flavor, I'd make the change to maple syrup. I use it to sweeten lots of things but it's not as concentrated so you have to use a little more of it for sweetness. Honey works good too, and both are much better than table sugar.


NarniaFox

I've found some jab with syrup instead of sugar and I'm curious whether it makes any difference.


TheBookOfSeil

Ahh okay. I mean from what I remember, there's different methods of making sugar into a product for use or to buy. Maltose, I believe is just malt sugar and is like a digested form of sugar. It doesn't make any difference nutritionally and I don't think there's much difference in taste either. Just a different form of sugar.


NarniaFox

\*jam, sorry, not jab Thanks! I thought so. They labeled it "without added sugar", but it has syrup, so it doesn't make much sense.


TheBookOfSeil

Yeah you're right, that doesn't make sense. I don't know why they would say no added sugar with maltose syrup. Its not a calorie-free sweetener.

NarniaFox

That's not "feminist" posts. This is just a post from a person bitter and angry with men.


sleuthoftrades1

But you repeat yourself.


NarniaFox

Not really. There are enough feminists who aren't angry with men.


sleuthoftrades1

I 100% guarantee you that if you ask her if she is a feminist, she will say yes.


NarniaFox

That doesn't mean that whatever she writes is about feminism. I'm a feminist and I don't think that my posts necessarily relate to feminism.


sleuthoftrades1

If she weren't a feminist and that didn't influence this particular post, do you think she would have included stuff about "toxic masculinity"?


NarniaFox

Once again, even if she's a feminist, it doesn't mean that the post is feministic in any way.


sleuthoftrades1

Once again, if that PARTICULAR post wasn't influenced by feminism would that term have been included?


NarniaFox

Being influenced by something doesn't make something this thing.


TheBookOfSeil

Yes yes, girls good boys bad. Always funny to see that girls who are nice should be treated good but guys don't deserve anything from women at all.


annabeelongx

It’s the other way around here


HOLYREGIME

annabeelongx

Stacies get played too. Chad just doesn’t like monogamy


annabeelongx

Q4M: if the girl you’re seeing is nice and sweet—everything you want in a woman but you found out she left her parents home due to bad relationship with them, would you continue the relationship?


Notsonewguy7

No..


annabeelongx

Why not


Notsonewguy7

A person that has no family is a person that has no roots a person who has no real attachments they either have an inability to sort of connect emotionally or they hyperconnect (cling) because they have no one else that they can lean on. Neither are healthy or desirable in a partner long or short term.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

Yes, but id want to have more info


annabeelongx

So it depends for you


343_peaches_and_tea

Of course. My wife's father is an alcoholic with schizophrenia so it would make sense. Also I kicked out of my house by my stepfather (who is an absolute prick). So we'd have something to bond over.


Bandit174

Wouldn't bother me. In a way it's almost a positive in that you don't have to endure those awkward meet her parents situations.


TheBookOfSeil

Yeah I don't care. I've never had a good relationship with my mom either and my father is buried already. I think it would actually be better if the families weren't involved and I don't understand when women want these big family marriages either. I couldn't give two shits less if our families liked each other or not. They're not the ones who got married.


TheJim66

A red flag isn't a deal breaker. A red flag means you just have to be more suspicious and pay more attention .

annabeelongx

It just seems like every guy here scrutinize a girls past and any mistakes or occurrences made immediately warrants them as “plate material” lol


ChromaticVengeance

Men's desires does not always relate to the number of their dating options. At the end of the day, what they'd like is different than what they do or what they can do.


IcarusKiki

watch what they do not what they say - men here dismiss anything less than a 18 yo Ukrainian christian virgin bride as ‘plate material’ and then wife up a borderline with a 50+ body count irl lmao


woosmon

That's because these types of things usually come with baggage that not everyone can deal with. A woman who can walk out of that environment and still have a healthy mindset is wife material.


xQueen-Bx

yeh they don't care about that tho

I’m not a man, but I would at least hear her out if she wants to divulge. She might be making the healthiest choice for herself. Or she might be a drama queen. Listen and consider. At least if you think she might be worth it.

Ordered halal chicken over rice and it’s 90% vegetables and lettuce. Where’s my refund??


sleuthoftrades1

Next time tell them to hold the vegetables and lettuce. They can't just give you a nearly empty plate. Of course, then you'll just get a plate of rice. Lots of places do that, fill you up with cheap carbs and then skimp on meat.


simeneta_two

I hate when places skimp on the meat


TheBookOfSeil

That's your fault for ordering halal chicken. It's actually called "Halol chicken" for that reason.

What the FUCK is going on with gen Z women and porn addiction?

angels-fan

How does anybody know the genders of who is searching for what?


nessaea-blue

"Five percent of searches by women are for content portraying nonconsensual sex. While men still search for significantly more porn than women, search rates for these more extreme types of sexual content are at least twice as common among women than men. ... "If there is a genre of porn in which violence is perpetrated against a woman, my analysis of the data shows that it almost always appeals disproportionately to women," he writes. ... Researchers found that 52 percent of the women had fantasies about forced sex with a man, 32 percent about being raped and 28 percent about forced oral sex with a man. Women who reported being less repressed about sex were more likely to have rape fantasies, more open to fantasy in general, more likely to have consensual fantasies and finally, they were found more likely to have high self-esteem. " [https://www.vice.com/en/article/bm9w7v/why-are-so-many-women-searching-for-ultra-violent-porn](https://www.vice.com/en/article/bm9w7v/why-are-so-many-women-searching-for-ultra-violent-porn) ​ I find this topic insanely interesting because I am disturbed by my own porn interests lol. It's clear that women like fucked up porn and fantasies more than men. My partner theorizes that it's a left over evolutionary trait where a man who can overpower a woman is most likely a strong man who will produce successful offspring.


[deleted]

[удалено]


nessaea-blue

Plausible. Could also have something to do with female to female competition, after all, the women are watching another woman be humiliated, not herself.


Kaisha001

>My partner theorizes that it's a left over evolutionary trait where a man who can overpower a woman is most likely a strong man who will produce successful offspring. I agree, I think it's an extension of the ['sexy son' hypothesis](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexy_son_hypothesis). From a purely genetic perspective, a women doesn't want (ugly) men to force themselves on her, the cost of carrying sub-par gene's is quite high. But at the same time, she wants sons that are sexually aggressive, because it significantly increases the chance her gene's get passed on. So she wants men that are sexually aggressive, but doesn't want to carry sub-par gene's, its the sort of optimization conundrum that evolution deals with all the time.


AerieIll3707

submission is innate to womens sexuality


RDelbson

>submission is innate to women~~s sexuality~~ fixed


nessaea-blue

i wouldn't go that far, chief. We are still only talking about 5% of women's porn, meaning 95% aren't interested. Plus, there is a big difference in fantasy and real life. I like to watch it and fantasize about it, but in no way, shape, or form do i want it to happen to me.


AerieIll3707

TheJim66

>My partner theorizes that it's a left over evolutionary trait where a man who can overpower a woman is most likely a strong man who will produce successful offspring. It is. Same reason the stuff TRP says work, work.


redditthrowaway1478

>My partner theorizes that it's a left over evolutionary trait where a man who can overpower a woman is most likely a strong man who will produce successful offspring. Without the data to prove it, this was akin to blasphemy in the west 20+ years ago. Lol Where do the lies end!


nessaea-blue

It's still not something I would ever discuss non-anonymously with anyone other than my partner. It's the kind if topic that could very quickly devolve into accusations. I think the feminist explanation goes more along the lines of "women are so strong nowadays that they wanna let go of control in the bedroom." Or maybe internalized misogyny.


TheBookOfSeil

Maybe most people aren't actually in control of themselves as once previously thought. History always presented this view like women were calm, cool and collected, mature, practiced restraint, etc., but maybe it was just because women were more or less told to be that way instead of actually being that way and they're actually just as bad as men are.


redditthrowaway1478

Never imagined that Gen Z would be proving so much of the Bible correct, contrary to what I was taught.


TheBookOfSeil

Religion was primarily used as a tool to systematize people and curb their actions toward ones that promoted the tribe. Now with more people rejecting religion in the US because their political enemies endorse it or because it's rooted in oppression, racism and violence, there's no more actions going toward promoting the tribe. Only actions that benefit personal interests.


annabeelongx

Maybe gen z feels a little more free doing these things. Idk I actively watch porn and it’s not a shocker to anyone but I doubt the hardcore thing a lot


jax006

I watched some porn with my ex GF a couple times and she was into like the most hardcore shit had her favorite pornstar dude who would choke chicks and shit lol I was like bruhhh


HOLYREGIME

Choking is hardcore? I thought that was pretty standard. Seems like most girls like to be choked and must be able to swallow. Eye contact is very important ladies. That’s how you get chad.


jax006

It was moreso the manner of choking ect. Lol But yea I agree almost any chick likes some slight choking type of shit which sleeves me out but hey it's what they're into


redditthrowaway1478

It's more like a firm grip on the neck, leaving the airway in tact Most women don't actually want to suffocate. Lol. But a non-insignifcant number kinda do...


jax006

poppy_blu

Aw. I know. Being embarrassed in front of everyone for having your bluff called hurts. Do you need a hug? 😂😂😂😂


Phoenix_Obscurus

I'm asking this out of genuine curiosity: are you truly happy, Ms. Poppy? I've seen a lot of your comments, and I don't understand how someone can simultaneously imply superiority to a group of people (ex. "clueless" men on this sub) and yet spend significant time with them almost daily. Couple that with how consistently caustic you are towards people on this sub, seemingly out of nowhere in some cases, and I am left flummoxed. I like some of your takes (and, honestly, some of your more clever comebacks) and can appreciate your common-sense approach, but, at the same time, it's hard to believe someone who frequently does the above as well as employs, frankly, more puerile social tactics like incendiary emotional attacks (ex. "Awww, are your feelings hurt because I...") and crowd manipulation ("Everyone here can see/already agrees that you...") to intentionally hurt other people is truly a happy person. To be completely honest, it's hard to believe this stuff comes from an adult sometimes. What, if you mind explaining, is the difference between people you engage with civilly and those you approach more aggressively? Are you ever like this in person? Is there a part of you that derives pleasure from more combative discussions, especially those in which you feel like you've put someone in their place? I mean no disrespect or offense, but as I said earlier, I'm genuinely curious because you really seem to just come out of the gate swinging sometimes.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

>Couple that with how consistently caustic you are towards people on this sub, seemingly out of nowhere in some cases, and I am left flummoxed. This is the confusing part. I enjoy debating people on this sub and while some are unreachable i at least can have and enjoy some really good long debates with respectable people. But she just wants to shit in the cheerios of anyone she disagrees with


poppy_blu

Oh wow — switch out the words “men” with “women” and you’ve described 90% of the men who frequent this sub. That’s about the extent to which I care to explain myself to you.


MisterFlipside

No, you're a genuine liar. An appeal to emotions makes it so obvious. I hope this path makes you happier in the end, cause it certainly doesnt serve anyone else.


poppy_blu

😂😂😂😂😂


TheBookOfSeil

"rAiSe AwArEnEsS" doesn't work if nobody really cares.. Duh. For all of the garbage that feminism espouses about equality, you'd think that they would at least address men's issues, too, right? Nope. Women and feminists don't actually care about men or problems that affect men. There's nothing that can actually be done about men's problems either because most of them involve women in some way, and that's the rub.


ChibsFilipTelfordd

Good points. Agree on all counts.


poppy_blu

I can point you in the direction of tons of organizations that do address mens mental health. Plenty of people care. The MRM/manosphere doesn’t care but plenty of people with legit intentions do.


TheBookOfSeil

>I can point you in the direction of tons of organizations that do address mens mental health. Cool. I can point also point you in the direction of individual mental health professionals who address men's mental health, but they don't actually do much of anything. Most therapy involves getting people to solve their own problems, but if those problems aren't solvable, their mental health problems don't go away. >Plenty of people care. The MRM/manosphere doesn’t care but plenty of people with legit intentions do. Nah. People only care up to the point where they have to become involved in some way. They'll sit and listen to you, give you advice and try to help make you feel better about being in your situation, but once they're called to do more than just that, they don't care anymore. Their own lives and well-being are always going to be more important, and if they have to give something up to help you, whether it be their time, energy, mental space, money, etc., they'd rather you just disappear. Again, hate to say it but women have demanded that men make sacrifices in order to make things better/ "more equal" for them but aren't very willing to do the same. Just like everyone else. Those who are fucked can't do much else except be fucked.


poppy_blu

I’m not talking about therapy. Look up Movember for one. But hey, Way to make excuses for why you’re not doing what you criticize others for. We call that hypocrisy btw.

Maybe he was at one of the MRA conferences where feminists pulled the fire alarm.

How interesting that they’ve only ever had the one conference where some chick pulled a fire alarm like 7 years ago and they keep using that as their excuse for not doing anything else since

But, did you know that 22% of all suicide victims are women?? We need to start women's suicide awareness campaigns and pink ~~ribbon~~ shoelaces to show support for women's suicide prevention!

I would hate to do college online. It's been some time since I finished college, but the full college experience does include all the social aspects of it. If I had to do 2 years (out of 4) online and not hang out with my colleagues, I would have hated college.

I hated the campus honestly. I loved online classes. I could do assignments and direct message my professor if I had a issue. Check progress on assignments, schedule time more accurately. My colleagues were not my friends I already had friends and college just interrupted my chance to hangout with them.

Online classes suck. It's much more difficult to keep the motivation up while you're at home.

Not doing the mainstream 4 year school with dorms and shit is one of my bigger regrets I did save myself like over 100k with the school/degree I got, but I could've found a better balance with a state school that had a good engineering program


PickleLine

state school now is still close to 100k over 4 years even in state. 10k tuition/fees plus 15k in dorm/food costs per year
