    HA!……Yuma’s my old stomping ground. I grew up in El Centro, you drove thru it on your way to AZ. they’re about 30 minutes apart. They both are absolute dumps. There’s some positives about the desert such as you can do what you want. Shoot guns, ride ATV’s. I used to love spending time out in the desert with the lizards and rattlesnakes. Lot’s of holes in the desert, lot’s of solved problems buried in those holes. I’ve seen waves of illegals coming across and cartels doing there business out there.

    At the end of your talk about Phoenix you pretty much summed it up — a city of people escaping California and other places. My Grandpa and Grandma moved to Sun City in the early 80’s for retirement — so you have that massive WASPy retirement element there as well to the northwest (and other Del Webb developments), that moved there not just for the weather but because it was more conservative, white (and boring) than other places they could have retired to.

    Perhaps appeals as a neutral zone away from conflict.

    Soon you will realize that… there are no girlfriends among us anymore.
    They. Are. All. Whores. All of them are prostitutes. There is no difference among them. This is what they all have turned themselves into.
    The idea of a good relationship, like that from your parents, or grandparents, from history books, novels, movies, fiction and fairy tales.
    It simply doesn’t exist anymore.

    “Well, Giga Chad have it, the foids love him.”
    “And my neighbor, mister Okamoto who is 90 years old, is also happily married”
    “Surely there is some nice women out there waiting for me too! Just like for them.”
    No! There is not! We are not in Japan 1929. You are not handsome like Chad. Our situation is completely different from theirs.

    Don’t delude yourself. I am not saying this to hurt you, or to make you angry, or to make you despair.
    This is a wake up call: don’t waste your time, don’t waste your health, or your money chasing or humiliating yourself to worthless foids, that will just use you and treat you like garbage and not ever give you any sex.

    I am an escortcel, I have been for many months. Is it ideal? No. There is any love or affection in it? Absolutely not.
    Does she suck your cock, and you fuck her hard in the pussy? Yes. Is it good? Definitely Yes!.

    I couldn’t take it anymore, it was driving me super aggressive and crazy. So I tossed my shame and dignity into the garbage and went there.
    We agreed on a date and place, a cheap motel, the price was reasonable, I didn’t care. I bough a pack of condoms, extra small.
    She tried some small talk, I didn’t want to talk, told her what I wanted, and she did it. I came in less than 0.003 seconds.
    We finished I took a bath, paid her and I left. I do it once every month now. Escorts are not that expensive, I am just that poor.

    Don’t waste your time. The women you are waiting for, is currently being hardcore gang-banged by Chad, Tyrone and 2 other dudes.
    The only sex that non Chad men have today is paid sex, escorts, prostitutes. One way or another, you will always pay.
    Don’t wait until the hate, anger and stress breaks you. And it will. It almost broke me.
    It’s way more simple than it seems. And the shame gradually goes away.

      Mr FuddR is actually not that far from the truth!!

      Despite the MILLIONS of American men seeing compromised lives full of debt & despair a shocking minority of younger men somehow think they are going to be “the exception to the rule”….

      No amount of wishful thinking or ‘manning up’ is going to redeem a SYSTEM that negatively controls your future.

      Marriage can lead to impoverishment, death, imprisonment, and clinical depression.

      Go to Las Vegas and place ALL of your life savings plus a bank loan for $500,000 on ONE spin of the Roulette wheel.

      Your Odds of beating the House at the Bellagio are 100x better than having a happy, lasting marriage.

      Good luck with it all….

      ps – Yuma is a TOILET –
      AZ is one of the desert lands Christ said to avoid, “Do not go forth…!”

        “Marriage can lead to impoverishment, death, imprisonment, and clinical depression.”

        All your lies are belong to us.

        “ps – Yuma is a TOILET”

        Why are you mad, bro?

    It ain’t that bad. We all listened to music like that. We all had casual degrading sex for years. People change as they get older. Never thought I’d want family or kids or a nice stable life, but here I am. And just look at you. You’ve got to have some hope. If we can turn it around, anyone can.
