22

Hey, I’m only playing the hand I was given.

You don’t want to get married?!  You don’t want to have children?!  Don’t you want to pass on your genes?!  What are you going to do, bang sluts for the rest of your life?  You want to die alone?!

My answers:

  1. No.  But, I sometimes think I’d like to meet someone who will change my mind.
  2. No.
  3. See #2
  4. I mean, if I have to.
  5. Death is death.

You don’t want to get married?!

No, I really don’t.  I don’t want my life to be typical.

Also, there is little-to-no reason for men to marry these days.  There are dozens of Manosphere articles discussing this.  The chances of actually staying married these days are quite literally 50/50.  In the event of the divorce, more than likely she will make off with a good chunk of my assets (because a pre-nup when a man wants it is “unromantic”), likely custody of any children involved, and I will likely be making more money and have to pay for her to continue the lifestyle she is used to.

To those who tell me that marriage is about love and love is worth the gamble, I invite you to take a stroll down to the casino and bet all of your assets at a Roulette table.  Pick your color, black or red; 50/50.  Appealing, isn’t it?  Didn’t think so.

Just another reason ;)

50/50.  Make your bets.

You don’t want to have children?!

This world is so screwed up.  I have no desire to bring some poor soul into this.  I’m also 22 and realize that maybe there will be a point that I will settle down enough to want that.  My parents had me when they were 26 though, and I doubt I will come within 10 years of them for fathering a child.

Going back to #1, I’m not sure I’d be able to find a woman who I would want to be the mother to my children.  I’d want someone feminine and who wants to be nurturing and take care of the home.  If I were to have a child, I would be fully okay with being the breadwinner while my wife was a homemaker.  I hear the feminists shrieking at me.

Don’t you want to pass on your genes?!

My father’s last named ends with me if I don’t reproduce.  I don’t care.

What are you going to do, bang sluts for the rest of your life?

I’m not opposed to a long-term monogamous relationship, by any means.  I would actually rather not continue to date like this for the rest of my life.  However, why must my love be proven with a worthless expensive diamond and a legal contract?

You want to die alone?!

I’m sincerely hoping that when I’m 80 and still in great shape, I’ll do something like skydiving and my parachute will break.

    Marriage is outdated. Single life is the best.

        I read the post. I think you are assuming that every girl wants a long-term marriage or relationship – which is not the case! When I said marriage is outdated, I meant that it is no longer needed by either men and women to exchange land and property (nowadays, people get jobs, make money, invest, etc.) I think this is good – would you want a girl dating you just because she was after your money?

        And getting old and wrinkles is not a terrible thing! It’s a part of life. I say people should stop worrying and just enjoy life.

      • I recognize every girl doesn’t want that. However, let’s put this in a little perspective. Plenty of YOUNG girls do not want that, and I see why. They get all sorts of attention from all sorts of guys (read my post(s) on Facebook, etc). However, what happens when those girls get old? All of a sudden, they are left without sexual/male attention, and have no good prospects for marriage/long term.

        Marriage is not needed. I dream of finding a life partner who will do that without a silly piece of paper. However, most *males* are probably, deep down, not content to be lifelong bachelors. And, males age much more gracefully and their value goes UP in correlation with age. Girls are the exact opposite. So, if so many men realize they are not going to be happy as lifelong bachelors, do you really then women will be happy as lifelong bachelorettes?

      • emma says:

        It depends on the woman. I know many single older women who have support systems outside of marriage – their friends, family, social orgs, etc.

        I only want to stay with someone I genuinely like, not just to not be alone. I understand that I may not end up with a lifelong partner. He might leave me, he may die before me, I may not even find anyone to begin with, etc. If I am old and single for the rest of my life, I don’t mind. Plus I like cats. They can devour my corpse when I die alone.

      • Don’t you feel like it’s easy to say you don’t mind being old and single now, while you’re 22?

        It may not be so easy in 10, 20, 30, etc years.

      • emma says:

        I will let you know!

    • I predict many future cat ladies in the future of our society.

  • Marriage is highly overrated, it is mainstream and completely conventional. By getting married you admit that you have fallen for societal pressure and its religious nonsensical dogmatic traditions. I will pass.

    • I agree. It’s what society *says* we’re supposed to do. At the same time though, the comfort and stability appeals to most people. I like the idea of long-term monogamy without a piece of paper saying so.

      Thanks for the comment!

      • I think that’s the best way to go, long-term monogamy or polyamory for those who are into that. Marriage as an institution only benefits the government. Marriage does not equal love or long-term commitment. Marriage is such a sham for the most part and it plays into the spoiled princesses fairy tales all too often.

      • Plus, stories like the one in my latest post with the poor Dad…I just don’t see why any man would sign up for self inflicted wounds.

        Just took a look at your blog; really glad to see some MGTOW and Red-pill guys looking at and commenting on my blog. It can kind of be a lonely life at times 🙂

  • […] On the flip side, if you’re optimistic that there is a special girl out there, you will no doubt lose out on a high notch count, but if you’re naive enough, you will likely find someone to settle with.  If you’re lucky, she’s cute, intelligent, and feminine.  If you’re not, she’s fat, masculine, and demanding.  She may also go from the three desirable qualities to the three undesirable in the span of six months.  That’s just the gamble you take; and I don’t like gambling.

  • […] My next job was working at the corporate behemoth that was Best Buy.  I was easily the top salesman in the computer department during my time there.  I just became naturally good at selling as I shed the excess weight on my body and became more confident in myself.  It was around this time, I realized that confidence was the key to everything.  People would buy the most overpriced warranties and unnecessary accessories if I just sold it the right way.  Most people are sheep.  They will do whatever the position of authority says – unable to draw their own conclusions.  Perhaps this is more of a modern day sales epidemic than in the past, because men used to be able to make decisions, but there’s nothing wrong with playing the hand you’ve been given.
