RIP to a beloved forum member
He was a young guy, but old beyond his years. His favorite food was caviar, washed down with vodka. Never had an Instagram, but struck something between the aesthetic of Hemmingway and the Dos Equis man. A chain smoker, not a toker.

His hobbies proceeded him, but that was ok, we didn’t mind. Uncouth and unkind, said many full of spite-- they weren’t his type. Better to be hated, and die, than be kind, and dry.

Language was his passion and he knew many. Bar stories were a gift of his, we all thought they were untrue, but, upon closer inspection, most, if not all of them were.

An enigma in a modern world full of instant communication. He was old-fashioned but yet refreshingly modern. Bespoke suits, and bar booths.

He spent his whole adult life traveling and soaking up the beauty of the human landscape, worldly. Despite the festering nature of our terminal condition, he always saw the better side. And the better drinks.

Women were a game to him, a variable that made many jealous, he made them his bitch. Coke models from far-off locales and girlfriends you could bring to the house.

Eccentric, but entertaining, you couldn’t find a better wingman.

He cursed like a convict, although he probably was.

He died on his terms, and today we remember him for that, the good and the bad, the drunk, and the sober, for richer and poorer.

RIP Henley, a man known to only a select few on RVF.

God Bless, and Godspeed.

**Henley** was a mentor and a trusted friend of mine. Who I met, off the forum a short time ago, which developed into an amazing friendship.

I don't expect many to know who I'm talking about. But, this post was the least I could to do, to show my appreciation. We will all miss him.

He was an incredible guy full of life.

RE: RIP to a beloved forum member
Roosh out of respect for this gentleman I'm not going to say anymore, other than this:

He spoke to me about the value of your writings and guidance on his young life. The far off places, the foreign women, and the search for the bigger purpose. The search for meaning. I'm tearing up as I write this... The suffering, the search for meaning, the desire to belong, and to have a family you can take care of. Politics, all that noise, and the idea we're tools for a larger purpose. To put it simply, he was way more articulate about it all than I could ever hope to be... Our conversations, in person, were just like the conversations we have on RVF. That doesn't usually happen with people you just happen to meet off the internet... I knew him only a short time, but he, just like you, asked the hard, and very difficult questions. And to put it quite bluntly, we often talked about the impact of RVF on our young lives, and the decisions we made as a result of it... We cried as we discussed some of the hard realizations we arrived at, given what we learned from the quote, unquote, "red pill", and the nature of human behavior. It was cathartic. And really painful. That's all I say about that... But it was something we got from you.

He was a valued forum contributor who many loved and respected.

I don't want to say much more about the matter...

For the few on here that knew him in real life, he was a valued wingman and brother in Christ.

He was the embodiment of RVF, and it's principles, and he deserves to be remembered, even if it is namelessly. He made my life better, and others, as well. We won't be forgetting him anytime soon.

RIP Henley.

You can delete my account now, but I hope you preserve this post for posterity. Henley was living proof of the impact and beauty of RVF, and I hope no one here forgets him. He made my life better, and made me a better person. He asked the unpleasant questions and I didn't have the answers. That's the measure of a true man.

I'm sorry for the loss, of course, but why can't we know who this is?

^^If you know, you know; if you don't know, you don't know. He was a presence on the forum, and many knew him.

Out of respect for him, I can't give up his handle, it's just not right for me to do that.

But he was an incredible individual and a walking embodiment of RVF.

I can't give you the easy answer, but, easy to say he was both.

He was prolific but again, want to respect him.

Well honestly if he was so great (which I believe he is) then he must of made friends on this forum. I’m new here and even I made friends here. It is cruel for u to know this and not tell his potential friends of his passing.

He did. ^^

I'm sorry, but I can't give up his handle. It's the internet and it wouldn't be right for me to do that...

Time goes by, but, I can't stop thinking about where we could of gone, women conquered, bar stories, and becoming better human beings... it's no longer possible...

I gave up too much, honestly, by posting this tribute to him, I just have to assume because he was active here, he saw the true value of RVF. Of course he did. He was known-well here. He had a presence here because he cared. Don't forget that.

If this is trolling, it's in extremely bad taste.
If not, and if you believe he wouldn't have wanted other established members to know of his passing, then I can respect it. Sure as hell I can relate to it.

RIP.

So even if it's not a troll post, at this point it means as much to me as reading "Pedestrian Struck and Killed at Busy Intersection" in the morning headlines.

If this is genuine, why would it be disrespectful to let us know his RVF username? Then those members who did interact with him can pay their respects.
It's not like he's going to be doxxed.

Locking this down until I am emailed evidence that OPs claims are true.

Though I'm pretty sure it's a troll...

Quote:Women were a game to him, a variable that made many jealous, he made them his bitch.

Great tribute bro.
