  • I have to say Wilton, I don't like the statement that women can more easily date people less intelligent than them. I'd say the total opposite is true, in fact. Women are valued primarily on our looks, and some guys feel emasculated if their woman is much smarter than them or, even worse, makes more money than them.

    • Having an adventure in your backyard is in no way similar to traveling. How could you possibly be challenged in your own backyard?

      Many yeas ago I was your age. For 18 months I traveled and worked my way around Europe; I taught English in Spain, picked grapes in France, cleaned fish in the furthest northern part of Norway and lived in a squat in Amsterdam. I had to use my wits to get by, there is no way I could have learned the things I learned in my own backyard.

        Simple; challenge yourself. I do it all the time, and that is how I grow. It has not required another continent, country, or even state for me to grow tremendously as a person. I'm not really a lost soul requiring English lessons in Spain, grape picking in France, fish cleaning in Norway, or slum living in Amsterdam. I volunteer at a local children's receiving home where my goal is to be a role model for the kids; I pick grapes in my backyard! (lucky climate to live in); I go fishing in any of the many rivers and lakes nearby where I can then clean and eat the fish if I so choose; and I go camping in various places around the state where I can practice building my own shelter and all kinds of other bush skills. These are just examples that equate to what you did; there are many other adventures I find.

          None of the activities you listed have anything at all to do with experiencing a wide variety of people and their cultures. It's not about the places you go when you travel. It's about the experience. The world is a varied and mysterious place, and I can't imagine why anyone would consider that they have no need to enrich their lives through experiencing other cultures because they can go fishing in a local river. It is not at all the same thing. Reading about a culture in a textbook is not the same as experiencing it in person. Do you really have no interest at all in the world outside your limited home view?

          That's bananas, yo! :P
          yay!

            I do want to travel, but I'm not expecting it to be life-changing. I just expect it to be fun. Why would all of my world views change after all the research and thought I've put into them? The argument that I'll come back changed, as if my logic will turn on its axis like a polar realignment of the Earth, is weak to me.

                  • You overthink this problem with women too much man. Don't take it as an insult but you should absolutely get out and stop worrying where's the perfect girl. You won't find it anyways
                    I am not a bodybuilding/fat loss/strength training "guru" BUT I achieved a lean state with ease after learning the correct way to train and eat and I want to HELP YOU achieve the same.

                    Getting fit is also about managing your mindset:

                      I can see now why you guys want me to shut the hell up though. I'm talking about how great I am and how it causes so many problems. All I really meant to do was start a commentary on the downsides of the the upsides (health). I was totally using my interior voice, which is admittedly cocky as fuck. My exterior voice, the way I talk to other people, is far more humble. The internet and the anonymity tends to bring out the interior voice without even thinking about it.
                      People don't shut up because you're an idiot. Guess what, women LOVE smart men. They flock to them. You're just not one of them, because you can't use your computing abilities to solve your basic emotional problems. Sure, Grigori Perelman solved one of the hardest math theorems ever, but he couldn't even talk to women and now lives like a recluse with his mom. He's a math genius, but I wouldn't call him ''smart''.

                      If you're smart, you figure out how to master your own body, how to dance like a free spirit, how to be positive, how to make people laugh and be entertained, how to cook delicious food, and how to make those around you feel like better more complete human beings. And guess what, smart women will find you, or notice you the moment you say a full sentence. Until then, you're just like a computer. Genius calculating abilities, but still dumb as f*ck, and completely unattractive to the opposite sex, with reason.

                            Your description of 'smart' is not smart; it is powerful. My hypothesis stands. Nowhere did I say I couldn't attract women with this either, so I really don't know where you come from.

                              Sure, argue about definitions, keep missing the point.

                              Here are your options:
                              1. Get over your dumb ego, realize your emotional maturity is below average, and work on improving yourself. If your efforts are honest, people (women included) will see it, and you'll get plenty of dirty sex with super smart bisexual women with open minds who feel like dumb immature guys can't satisfy them or...
                              2. Keep telling yourself other people are the problem, keep whining like a bitch and become a bitter, broken husk of a man after a life of failed connection attempts with people you deem worthy of you, but don't give a damn about you because your blindness to your own flaws makes you incapable of evolving, and just a shitty person to be around.

                              Being healthy doesn't suck. It rocks. You suck. I've been there. I learned better.

                                But he's already pointed out how humble he is. In fact, I think his humility is one of his greatest strengths.

                                I am not sure that bisexual means what you think it means....

                                Harsh, but I agree with the sentiment behind it. People fail at all sorts of things all the time, for all sorts of reasons. The ONLY thing that you can learn from your failures is what you could have done better.

                                Indeed. The initial premise in the OP was absurd to the point of ridiculousness.
