I must say, I've always enjoyed this thread :wink:. I'm glad people keep contributing to it.
LoveBug said:@zep - I feel you on your loneliness, but it’s not a healthy place to start a relationship IMO. You could get involved with the wrong woman. Is the loneliness something that can’t be cured with engaging in other social activities, or do you need someone to wake up with?

Some guys find release through prostitures,
A healthier avenue is service. Make an inventory of your skills, experience, and gifts then contemplate how to best use them to serve others. If you find the right outlet, you will be rewarded psychically more than you can imagine. There can also be practical benefits like relationships, a bigger network, and practical benefit that come from those.
A tiny example. Tucker Max would volunteer at the Humane Society to meet women. The profound benefit is when your worldview is altered and you see things from a new perspective. But that doesn’t usually come from serving at the humane society but rather at the place that best appreciates your unique gifts.
LoveBug said:It’s an art form to grow to appreciate women your own age, though
It’s something I myself struggle. I’m 41, and still have problems with ~30 year old women, hence why I perpetually stay in Latin America
I’m guessing it’s about cultivating the desire/appreciation for intimacy, feminine presence, personal chemistry over sheer looks. Reaching the deeper meaning of male/female relations. Imagine a girl you had a crush on in high school, would you still want to reach romantic heights with her if she kept herself in solid condition?
It’s an art form to appreciate women your own age, but I think it can be done. And your right, life is much easier if you can on the dating scene
It's all relative to your (and one must be honest about this) qualities and what you bring to the table. I hate to be this blunt, but since women bring so little to the table, when you forego the youth part of the equation, you essentially settle for a nothing burger™ these days, at least in America. I frankly see so few women at any age appreciate men --- haven't really seen it since the 1980s or early 90s.
Invite yoga girl to your house to juice your vegetables or to share the good news with her. Everyone needs to make new friends
"Hey there, wanna ........ juice my vegetables?" *wink*
I'm going to be careful. There's no way she is single. She was a 7 with zero makeup. I saw her at her "worst" and she was cute. I even liked her name.
She did her job, gave me a couple hours of fantasy.
Lol I met a girl. Armed Gina once. I told her that she didn’t look like a Gina. She didn’t, but that’s not the point. I don’t know if you would consider it a neg, but man that comment was powerful
This sounds funny but I'm not sure I understand it, either due to backstory, punctuation, or perhaps pronunciation?
