      I kind of look like this, maybe a bit uglier though, and I get approached by women, I can talk to unknown women but most are such prostitutes or leftists interest is lost, or the squeeze just ain't worth the juice due to no hymen no diamond. Anyhow I've also gotten sexual advances from loose women, but I turn it down.

          I've never shoved my pp into a woman, so I am one, also pair bonding goes down the more you frick, it's not just for women. Trust me I've seen this nor just in studies like in my image, but IRL, normalhomosexual exfriends or acquaintances who frick regularly on the weekends and then wonder why they can't hold onto a gf or why they can't make things click with the libshitarts/arthoe they were banging.

            >pair bonding goes down
            Pair bonding is a moronic concept.
            Impossible to measure, impossible to see, impossible to accurately define.
            Divorces have started going up when they became legal, that's it. Women are supposed to be properties, as soon as they have a say in the matter, they destroy society.
            >make things click
            Doesn't exist either. A man buys a woman to her father (dowry) and then have kids with her. Nothing "clicks" and nothing ever will.
            You've been waiting all your life for something to "click" (moronic concept that no one can measure) and now you're a 40 years old virgin.

            Some animals pair bonds, some don't.
            If you define love as a poetic abstract, then no, of course, but also almost no humans do.
            If you however note it as a specific pair bonding strategy, then, absolutely.

            And my argument, excessively immature zoomerminded anon, was that being in love is a variation of the pair bonding mating strategy that might be shared by more than one species.
            By the rules of mediocrity, it would be surprising but not impossible that apes developed this from nothing.

            it's been know for years that even supposedly dumb rodents like guinea pigs have very complex intersocial relations. in fact, it was guinea pigs that first made the conclusion possible that we have to see behavioural studies in context with the individual animal, not only regarding it's species and race, but it's personality as expressed in its normal environment.

            I recall an experiment where they had a male guinea pig from a colony of about 30 and measured heart rate and stress level when put in a alien environment. it was proven several times that the chosen partner from the colony lowered the stress level, something that not even siblings from the same colony could do. it's rather clear that even the lowest of god's creatures live according to the same laws

        although you have a point, prostitution is only legal in hyper feminized countries rules by the greediest of politicians alive. just take goymoney as example. every pimp has to take medical insurance for his employed hookers, pay taxes for every guy they frick and even have to pay maternal leave of she gets knocked up. that's fricked up and I'd much rather have a system like the nips. officially ban sex work but cater to it in a sort of grey area. takes the power from women and levels the playing field

    I was in in your position at 32 and managed to turn it around. Now I'm 37 with a great long term gf. Before her I went on dates with about 50 women and had sex with 11.

    Basically people in your position are there because they do zero romance. What you need to do is get on some dating app and start going on dates. If you keep doing that and make it a priority eventually you will figure out how romance works. For men at least romance is most a skill based activity.
    The difficulty is comparable to getting a job with health insurance or becomming a very good ping pong player.

    The way you lose romance is by not playing.

        Yop feel like these 30s or late 20s virgins are stucked on romance tv shows,movies and anime and think this is how it is in real life. If you average guy i am sorry but it will not be love on first sight get these fantasies out of your head.

    why would you think /misc/ would be the place to get advice on how to get a woman?
    or are you just here to complain? that's a common theme on this board.

    I am 39.

    I have no woman, I have no house, I have no money and live paycheck to paycheck. When will my real life begin bros? I'm tired of the grind, I'm tired of this life, just very very tired that's all.

      I have no advice, it seems this is our great despair. every generation has their own. but we do have the tools to do something about our situation. to at the very least alleviate it.

      When you become a person with skills that are worthy of respect from your peers. You are not a woman, stop acting like one.

          Several. at this age 90% say they have a bf, 5% look at me with pity, 5% with fear (im a big guy). but as i go into my 30s meeting women is objectively difficult. in my university years when i was focused on getting a gf and was talking to girls every day i managed to get 4 dates in 5 years. they went nowhere but they meant a lot to me.

    It seems like there are more and more of your types. I'm not sure what you guys are waiting for. It will not happen unless you start trying to make it happen. The younger generation will be even worse off, which is honestly sad. But you guys need to realize that when it comes to dating as a man, you need to be proactive. Just existing is not enough. Anyway your problem is not virginity. Other than psychological block if you have one and short term confidence boost it will not solve your problems. Your problem is clearly that you cannot or do not want to socialize.

    I can guarantee if you do ever have sex, it will be the most underwhelming experience of your life. Anyway, nobody wants to be a virgin. If you really want it, you must become /fit, then actually take steps towards having sex (i.e. aggressively warm approach women). protip: If you don't succeed with a woman within the first night you meet then move on

    Do this when you wake up tomorrow. Walk around public, down the street. And say these two words to people as you pass by. "good morning". Doesnt have to be female, but even start with older people.
    You will talk youself out of it and be scared right before you do it, but then you will get a rush and feel good when you force youself and do it. And realise it's easy. Good morning

      Crazy.
      If anything the fact that Black folk breed so much is testament to their lower genetics lol.
      Also the fact that they don't kill themselves. Even dolphins have been seen killing themselves but I guess it takes some lvl of self awareness.

        Inceldom is God telling you that he wants your genes to be wiped out. The proliferation of African genes is God deciding that white women need to be bred Black. It's His plan, simple as. Die out, Frenchie.
