I was just rereading a thread on Mancoat, and it was about ending dating bitterness. This fine post was by Outlaw2747. Armageddon15 nominated it for post of the year-it's THAT good! I decided to give it a wider audience. There is much truth in Outlaw2747's words; I found them to be uplifting, edifying, enlightening, etc., and I hope you do too...
I say don't do anything (or at the most very little) for women. If you desire them so, let them come to you. Sometimes you have to be selfish to get things to go your way in life. No one on this damn earth will take of you better than you. I'll show you what I mean, the common denominator is quite simple:
-Get a new car because YOU like it, not because it'll attract a female.
-Get a new outfit because you feel you'll look good in it, not to attract some female.
-Get a decent job because you want to live a decent life, not to get some female's attention.
-Be good at dancing because it is fun, not to attract a female.
-Listen to what you want to listen to because it sounds good, not because it'll be an icebreaker for a female.
-Read whatever you want to read because YOU enjoy it, not to impress a female.
-Work out because you want to live a longer and healthier life, not to get females to touch your body.
-Own a dog because you love it and it is a great companion, not to have more females come up to you.
-Learn to fight because you want to defend yourself, not to show a female how bad ass you are.
AND MOST OF ALL...
Be yourself. Why kill yourself to impress some female that will not accept you for you? You have worked so hard to become what you are now, why throw that away for the promises of a potential piece of ass or to hopefully get a good girl out of a wench? Make changes in your life because it is healthy for your welfare. Stop smoking because it is nasty. Stop eating junk because it'll make you fat. Stop or slow down drinking so you won't wind up on the 6 o'clock news in a body bag. Don't do it to make a female like you.
That is the problem with this country, all this focus on grabbing a female and little focus on grabbing a good life. Sure, once in a while and step into the waters to see what female life is out there and pursue what you find interesting (only because you WANT to and not because you NEED to). Whether it be for a friend, girlfriend, or marriage (I personally do not recommend that however, especially in the USA.). But always remember this, your home, money, personal will, and even the dog will always be there if you keep up with them, a female will come and go. Don't make large expectations when it comes to a date so when the disappointment hits, it isn't so bad.
But for those who do not wish to date or do little of it, take it from me... THERE IS NO SHAME IN BEING SINGLE OR CELIBATE.
