If anything my post is the opposite of "white night" syndrome. I'm saying to stop putting women on some pedestal with social powers over men and look at them as EQUALS.

I can guarantee you that so many of these guys here complaining, act like lost puppy dogs or half way frightened of women.

Like I said, my main point (as in many if my posts) is just saying to quit being whiney like girls and stop making excuses. If people here aren't successful with women, at getting in shape, or with their career, I am POSITIVE, there's more they can be doing to change that. Most guys would rather do nothing but complain, however.

I have to give it to you. I agree with your premise. These guys whine too much. It almost makes wonder whether they're human beings or the offshot of homo sapiens, as homo sapiens has the ability to adapt to the changing enviroment. These fellas seem to lack that. in Japan and in the Western world, we have more and more young men who are giving up on taking Excalibur from the stone(its near-high impossible to attract women if you aren't 6 feet tall etc) and are dedicating themselves to their hobbies, but these forum users don't want to let their bitterness go.

But I also agree with the other posters. You're a bit of a douchebag. You remind me of those Alpha bullies who'd make a point of making weaker, shorter men feel bad about themselves in order to appear even more Alpha.

My only intent here is to get those guys constantly complaining to take initiative and actually go do something about it.

I am a bully to those here with the same old annoying tune. I HATE when people complain and moan and make excuses about EVERYTHING and do NOTHING. It's like working with that fat person constantly bit**ing about being fat, while they stuff a double quarter pounder with cheese down their throat.

Like I said. There's stuff every guy here can do to help the things theyre complaining about. Work out more, work on your confidence, spend more time working to advance or studying in your spare time.

I'm 25 and make a lot of money. I am still looking into taking a 40 week course next year with an incredibly high failure rate and difficult test. Plus it will run me about $3000.

So what, I'm going to take risks and work my tail off while other guys can sit and mope about their situations and do NOTHING? And even worse, they will tell me I "have it so easy" or "I'm lucky?"

No, its called taking initiative and not being a whiney p.o.s..

How's that quote go?

"The harder I work the luckier I get"

Exchange of barbs aside, I remain persuaded that the central problem is neither "whiny" or timorous men, nor demanding or temperamental women, but simply a lack of means for people to meet and to mingle.

Whether we're all frenetically busy at the office or pointlessly slamming away on keyboards in a basement den, or going about whatever else occupies our time, there simply aren't adequate settings for people without social networks to be exposed to a large group of candidates and to venture with making a selection.

You hit the nail on the head with your assessment of Houston Dan.

Yup! That is a perfect description of me.

My this has to be one of the most hostile threads ever lets all chill out.

I mean come if we went by accessing people by what they post then everyone will come off as a jackass and whiners in some way shape of form to somebody.

I am not going take the high ground here there are plenty of posters I can't stand or say things I could never cosign to in my life whether they are successful or not or certain points are so redundant and simplified to a laughable extent it can eye rolling I agree but **** the world goes on. We all here are more than what we post on this forum.

To OP it can hard out there keep happy, enjoy yourself and don't let it overtake all the other good stuff going on in your life that is for everyone.

You should join a meetup group. Find a subject that interests you, join that group, go on a few meetups, get your name and number out there, add some peeps to facebook, and take it from there.

I think it's ok to have pride in oneself and one's achievements but I also think that American culture tends to fetishize the workplace and the career far too much, to a degree one would never see in other Western nations. Yes, that amount of money at a young age is impressive, but it is also transitory, especially in this economy. I'm glad to see you mentioned family and hobbies though. When we're on our deathbeds we're not going to be wishing that we worked harder or got more promotions.

There are plenty of men that fit these requirements.

I find your list refreshing to be honest, as most of the "requirements" lists that some women generate here "generate" laughs......

At least yours is realistic.
