You're trying too hard.
Just relax and go out and have fun, but not in a tight boys group, and something will happen.

Actually in this case people think i am not trying enough or even sonsidering similar nonsense like in this video(i know i am not king but human but that is not the point..watch video) and taking solo idea too seriously(i simply have doubts it will work correctly due to personality mismatch), part of it is because i had problematic past as child, but thanks for response. Delayed reply due to work which prevents normal(from wifi not mobile data) internet use for weeks..

BTW: What do you think about modern wave feminism and mgtow? I think those movements are ruining healthy civilisation..

I've known people who are on websites that cater to people who are looking not for dates, but for marriage.

The website I saw was in India. I'm sure there are others elsewhere.

Somehow, it is fitting that Redd Foxx died ... of a heart attack ... such that people at first thought he was joking.

I mean the nowaday interpretation of relationships between women and men. The agenda of feminists(wgtow) and mgtow(menists) to hate each other just because they exist or do not satisfy their every need out there. What you are talking is original feminism. Which i fully agree because even in holy books human sexes are given equality but at same time they are unique.

2 people just know. Some find out. Some don't. Souls know no gender. Minds neither. Hearts neither.

Animals adopt other animals of other species. Not for procreation. Out of love. Some members here have no concept of what love is. Reading their posts. Because distaste and prejudice towards a couples personal relationship shows a lack of love and caring of all living things. But their judgmental synapses are firing just fine.

Faults, misgivings, judgment. Is thrown out the window when one meets their soul mate. Procreation is not even a issue. Besides. Adoption exists for ALL SPECIES.

Just my opinion. And I am sticking to it.

I don't believe in soulmates! People who are looking for a soulmate go through one divorce after another and never find what they are looking for. Marriage is hard work. To make it work at all, you must:

1) Be reasonably compatible and agree about the things that you consider most important.
2) Be prepared for the hard slog. You don't get to the good times until you've gone through the bad ones.
3) Take your vows seriously. This is especially important. Marriage will not become stable again until people learn afresh what it actually means to make a promise. It means that you do what you said you would do, not for as long as it makes you happy, but for as long as you said you would do it. Which in this case means for the rest of your life.

If you're not prepared to take such a burden on yourself, stay single. You can be perfectly happy as a single person. I should know!

This strikes a chord. However, I tend to think of marriage as a contract so that children can be produced with a cheaper legal mess than otherwise.
I find it weird that people want to, for example, cohabit, when what they really want is just some companionship.
I have friends (surprisingly) who are on dating sites and I don't think that that is the place to find a non-committal companionship with sexual aspects. However, as somebody who has never had a real relationship, I know nothing.

Thank you for that

Perhaps we are now in a relationship? A/S/L? Teehee...

In all seriousness though I wonder how many people out there have been in real, honest relationships with their chosen partner and were completely honest throughout?
Not in any way to say that does not happen but there tends to be a lack of honesty when it comes to this kind of thing.

But that opinion is not valid. Humans > animals. Animals do not feel or understand art.

Look at my profile on how bad I live life every day. The girl sitting on my chopper is my wife.

I guess I'll keep my invalid opinion. Seems a lot more fun than yours.

Remind me real quick which Precinct of the Fun Police you work out of?
