I know we have a whole year left but I got an interesting email from a guy who has been reading me for ages, before blogs were known as blogs. He informs me that Shlonglor, one of the internet’s first celebrity gamer geeks, knocked up a girl who is now destroying his life. In addition to his child, he’s raising her 6-year-old from a previous relationship, calling the kid his own.
Let’s take a closer look.
So I give her $400 for groceries, next day she wants money. She was supposed to take some of the money up to her moms and use it for groceries this month so her mom wouldn’t have to pay for everything. She spent $100 in one day here. She just took another $100 and she wants another $50. I bought airline tickets for $800, GPS/Camera (like $500). It never ends.
See I’m buying a house and It’s like $3,100 a month vs. $2,000 a month for my current rent. When I met her I was at $1,200 a month. She doesn’t have a job so it’s up to me. :(
I’m going to have to pay like $800 to move, get a washer, dryer, fridge. I have to pay like $800 to get out of the apartment. I have $77/month college loan payment coming up, I have $3k on my credit card because of all these bullshit purchases, and I owe $1k on car insurance. She’s getting us another loan to help stay alive that I have to pay back within a year.
It’s a horrible time for me to buy a house… I should say no but this is the only time I can probably get a decent place where I got it. She keeps saying that if you wait, you might never see interest rates like this. She might be right. We’ll see.
She made him buy a house during the biggest housing bust since the Great Depression. Ouch.
I got rid of cable, netflix, gametap. That’s like $150.
She made him give up everything that kept his meek existence the least bit enjoyable.
I will eventually in a year get like 10k back in taxes for the house but that’s a long time to survive until then. I’m thinking of borrowing some money from my 401k despite it being down $40k.
What a shitty way to live.
He confesses in the comments that he complains about his girlfriend online so that she’ll see it and hopefully get the hint. Fucking epitome of beta. A man who doesn’t stand up for himself and instead cries on a blog with sad emoticons deserves nothing but total ruin. Get a spine man! Stop giving that bitch money! The only question is if she will be able to find a bigger beta to raise his kid once he’s reduced to living in his Honda.
If you’re wondering why a man would put up with this sort of thing, it’s the same reason why women stay with men who slap them across the face from time to time. Low self-esteem, low confidence. They think they can’t do better and that they’re lucky with whatever they got.
I believe he has reached the point of no return where no amount of advice or game will change the outcome. Helping him would be like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube.Tweet Follow @rooshv

This is neither here nor there (e.g. I am not defending this guy’s pussywhippedness) — but what’s so stupid about buying a house (without having to sell one) when prices are ridiculously low and interest rates are rock bottom? Sure beats buying one at the top of the market a few years ago. If he was looking to buy his first home anyway this is not a bad time to do so.
His $3,100 a month probably doesn’t account for the tax break either. Sounds like a break-even versus renting at 2K.

In addition to being a pussy, he’s an idiot. You don’t actually have to pay taxes to the IRS that you won’t owe, moron. Change your withholding.
Taking money out of your 401K is one of the worst things you can do, for two very good reasons.
btw, poor guy.
Don’t feel sorry for him in the slightest. He knows what he has to do, but lacks the discipline to do it. When self-preservation is not a priority for someone, why should it be a priority for me (even to express sympathy)?
He has probably been offered advice by dozens of people, and yet won’t take it. Thus, he has no one to blame but himself. Darwin at his finest….
Sounds like she thinks she found the gravy train. Even though from where I’m sitting it appears he’s struggling to deal with this on multiple levels.
But it appears (from one side of the story) that she is not making any contribution considering she does have a professional capability. Surely there must be some accounting work available to do from home.
Blaming her however for him cutting back on non-necessities appears wrong. On that front he’s doing what he can to fulfill the responsibilities of being a family man. Yes, this in spite of what others may do, he has admitted to fathering a child.
So if he wants to try to make a go of it with this female, well good luck. But he needs to get off the stick and be a man to her otherwise she is going to eat him alive, and dump him when the gravy train ends.
Then she’ll go to court and have him maintain her “lifestyle” and he’ll be alone and in even worse shape. Or so I hear.
I am curious as to where being a father falls in your beta/alpha categories.
It’s pretty obvious from the site that the dude loves his baby girl, so he’s doing what he can to provide for her. Granted, he could dump his girlfriend and hire himself a nurse, nanny, chauffeur, cook and homemaker. I am just not sure he could afford to do it. So he’s giving her a mom. She may or not be a great girlfriend, but that’s a moot point.
I think he’s being a wuss about not directly dealing with the problem, and that’s something he should handle behind closed doors. Airing that shit on the internet is like fighting in your front yard; just makes you look trashy.
Sounds more like martyr syndrome to me.
It’s established that the 6 year old isn’t Shlonger’s kid, but I wonder if the current kid is even his.
It couldn’t hurt to look into paternity testing. And closer examination of the girlfriend’s behavior and personality might very well show some more slut red flags [see recent post roissy did on identifying sluts]
Doesn’t surprise me that there guys out there like this. He is so fucked…

He deserves everything he gets! He is probably getting a masochistic thrill out of the treatment he is getting from her!
there’s more to it than that. a woman-charged society hell bent on alienating men, couple with women asking for more and more but giving less and less….he hid in games and the like, only to be caught at his weakest by some whore. we all bear some responsibility for acquiescing power to women on a large scale…and this man is the poor sap who bears the real result.

Roosh:Have you considering taking on a part-time PHD in the area of attraction ?
You have the majority of the theoritical work done in your Bang book and would just need to back it up with some social science material e.g papers from the journal of personality and social interaction. Such papers, which may be of interest can be found using google scholar at the following url (some downloadable pdf’s):
Also its a given that the theoretical work would do as a basis what would give your work real impact would be to gather case studies from your workshop where your theories could be applied using a good sample space.
A potential respectable career, lecturing and still writing in your chosen area ( scientific papers) and a neverending supply of young student women to Bang !.
Just a thought for the day.
All i have to say is listen to the “Tom leykis show” online or if you live in LA ,portland,OR , phoenix or dallas you’ll hear him everynite.he states the same thing “get some balls and dump the bitch”!Women only look at men as sperm donors or human wallets.
hell yeah roosh i knew you would love this!
keep on writin’
This is evidence that being a celebrity gamer does not require wisdom, or even disciplined intelligence.
There but for the grace of God go I!

Man, you’re right, that is a shitty way to live… unless, of course, you discount living in your parent’s basement and riding a bicycle everywhere.
This guy is an attention whore. He’s not posting the info online for the girlfriend to see. He’s posting it for the world to see and think what an amazing guy he must be to put up with it.
But for all you know he is a complete slacker who hasn’t forked up anything but the $400 for the kid. Did she put a gun to his head and say “buy a video camera”?
Please. You all are just feeding his ego by blaming his life on all woman kind. That’s what he wants. But it’s all his choices. He can say “no”. He’s an adult. This is what he WANTS. He wants your pity.
He’s no different then the woman who volunteers for PTC president, chairman of the library auction, room mom, soccer team mom, who has her 3 kids each in afterschool activity everyday of the week. They do it for everyone’s attention, pity and compliments on their saintliness.
There is now a company that will look at your child’s DNA and give you their genetic disposition to success in different athletics. That, if you’re suspicious, seems like the perfect cover to get a paternity test on the quiet, even if your loose wife never leaves you alone with the kid long enough.

You take one thread and blow it out of proportion and attempt to analyze this man’s life?
Who do you think you are buddy? You are some sort of grand interpreter of life and relationships?
Another typical idiot who thinks they’re a big man, but all you do is hide behind some stupid website.
Two words: Pussy whipped.
Tell dude to refer to the quote on the page below, next time he needs a reminder…

wow. I used to read Shlonglor’s site religiously back in the day. The guy was such an internet diva. He’d berate other people in Warcraft 2 and start internet feuds all the time. I really hated that dickhead.
But now that his life is in shambles, I feel bad for him. No one should have to live like that. I hope he pulls it together.
