Men in America Face an Epidemic of Loneliness

Post by jamesbond » May 6th, 2019, 8:56 am

I came across this guys channel recently and he really hit's the nail on the head about the epidemic of men in the USA who are "forever alone."

"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"

"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."

It is sad, but true.

This guy is not a single case and it is not only in USA like that. Europe is not so much different, the dating scene is totally broken. My situation more than 40 years ago was not much better to what he tells in this video.

Millions of men are lonely, millions of men are wasting horrible sums of money for dating women - the criteria how Western pro-feminist women are choosing their men is ridiculous - every thug has plenty of girls, but honest young men who are doing a regular job and have no criminal record are rejected and often with very scornful comments.

It is true that USA is especially bad - many women are overweight, into alcohol and drugs, violent, have children from several fathers, are lazy and living solely of benefits...

In many Western dating websites, men outnumber women at least 6:1 despite many female profiles are fake.

The only advice I can give If you really can do it, move away from this hateful pro-feminist countries. Settle down somewhere else.
If you cannot move and relocate, stay single, try to enjoy your life otherwise, forget about dating a 'nice girl' - it's nothing but a waste of time and money.

It took me many a year to figure out western women are mentally lacking and have the maturity of a high schooler as full grown adults, most of them are literally too stupid to figure out a huge collapse is coming from how broken the civilization is.

Here is another video by the same guy explaining how the loneliness epidemic has reached epic levels in America.

Spot-on commentary, but as for the advice, well in my case at least, I'd be at a complete loss deciding which country to settle down in. The area of the world I am interested in is Asia, but I can't think of a single country I've been to where I'd want to settle down at. They each have their own set of problems as worse as America's.

Broken dating scene aside, America is on the whole still a nice place to live. 47 million immigrants seem to think so.

Anyway, Happier Abroad works best as a retirement strategy, doesn't it? I mean, the places that are popular to move to are typically second-world countries with an exchange rate such that your US/Western currency can go a long way. That's the advantage you have by keeping your job in the West, and the moment you quit it to go work a local job in that second-world country you lose that advantage.

Say for instance that the exchange rate gives you double the buying power in the country you want to settle in. If you stick it out at your job in America you can retire twice as quickly as you would if you were already in that country earning that country's wages, right? In other words you would have to put in twice as many years of work if you relocate before you're ready to retire! Or am I missing something?

The way I see it, get-a-career-in-a-Western-country-and-stick-with-it is the quickest path to reaching the point at which you can do whatever you want with the rest of your life. If your career is a decent one, it doesn't even have to take that long. Perhaps even a single decade.

Every man is different, has different needs... My experiences and advice might be outdated, I left Europe around 1972 to Malaysia and Japan, and I am still in Japan and have my second home in Thailand. I never came back to Europe since more than 40 years.
Now retired, I am financially secure up to end of life with a good retirement allowance and a good medical insurance. I and all my Japanese family members are free of debts, there are no loans on my condominium unit.

The exchange rate works up and down, and all what I can say it's going slowly more and more down in US and EU, and more and more up in Japan and Thailand.

When I arrived in Japan USD 1,- was yen 360,- and today it is yen 108,- / when the Euro was created, I got for Euro 1,- about yen 165,- and today the exchange rate is only yen 121,-.

Retirement strategy makes sense - even done 50/50 it makes sense. I always meet Scandinavian people in Thailand, who are usually living there 5 months to escape dark and cold winter season and to keep all social benefits they prefer to live 7 months in their own countries, doing some simple work and keep a permanent address, usually a very small apartment in one of the Scandinavian cities. This helps never to run out of money when still young and receive a monthly retirement allowance when 65.

I don't think that one decade is enough. I met Western foreigners in Thailand and Philippines who arrived with 'not so little money' - but money is difficult to control - they were wasting money for cars, local girls who cheated on them, their businesses like restaurants and small hotels went bankrupt and they also had unexpected expenses like medical care etc. Unable to create any income. Costs of living are not the same for locals and foreigners. - Foreigners clearly spend more money than locals in Asia, their needs are different, me included.

I have seen bodies of foreigners who had the choice either to go home living in a basement with a minimum social welfare package of their own country or to jump out from a balcony of a high rising building in Pattaya .... they choose not to go home ... a bottle of whisky...and...

Yes, this is the best approach. Many countries are always going to be poor relative to the USA, just because they have so much corruption.

One thing to consider is perhaps learning languages while saving money in the USA. Problem with Asia is so many different languages and many are difficult for native English speakers. And in some cases, such as Philippines, you lose status if you speak the local language. For Latin America ex Brazil or FSU, much simpler: just one language needed, Spanish or Russian, respectively. But that once language essential in those areas.

1 USD to 360 yen! Wow. That must have been a splendid time to travel in Japan.

True, exchange rates can be expected to weaken in the future to the point where you might not have been so bad off relocating earlier. I hadn't considered that. If there's a particular place you wanted to relocate to, that is. If there isn't, favorable exchange rates will always exist out there somewhere. It could be that a country that is a shithole now gets its act together and becomes a viable place to live by the time you're ready to retire.

I am hoping for Vietnam to get its act together. I was just over there on vacation and was thoroughly impressed by the people. They gotta be the nicest people in Asia. Friendly, generous, intelligent, hard-working, independent. But Vietnam itself...I wasn't crazy about it. Wish I knew a way to live in a place where I'm surrounded by Vietnamese people without it being Vietnam.

Very sad, but true. American women are nothing but spoiled brats. They don't mature past 6th Grade anymore. An estimated 91% of American women younger than 35 are in gangs, many appearing to favor extremely violent gangs like MS-13, Los Zetas, Gangster Disciples, Latin Kings, Mickey Cobras, and Four Corner Hustlers. And a rapidly growing number of American women are even turning physically violent, and it's only a matter of time before American women themselves start gunning down and murdering every man they don't like and getting away with it due to feminism.

Regarding the first video, from around the 4 min mark until about 6 minutes, that is exactly what happened to me. Women flirting and then saying no or they had a boyfriend. (I think this is mainly an American thing cause it never happened to me in Europe, but then again I never attended school in Europe.)

They do this because they love attention from men, to pump up their egos. But the unfortunate side effect is, that they destroy men's confidence. (It also shows a lack of love and loyalty for their boyfriends, and it is a form of cheating, getting their "emotional needs" met from other men, but using real people instead of imagery. And I do believe the emotional high this gives women is better than or at least as good as intercourse climax.)

Read the proverbs. It says right there what evil women are up to. Evil women hunt for the precious life. Evil women are hunting for souls to destroy them.

This life truly is a spiritual battle. People think this is innocent fun, but this could cause men to go on to commit suicide, it destroys self esteem, confidence, willingness to interact with women, willingness to approach women, and foments misogyny. In other words, because it is so common for certain men to encounter this, it destroys trust in humanity. It is cruel and very destructive. Meanwhile because it is emotional and not physical, most people have no empathy for men. But if a man even yelled at his wife, it'd be considered domestic abuse in some places.
Salvation is the free gift of God simply for believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and it can't be lost; the only repentance necessary is the change of mind from unbelief to belief, because salvation is not about turning from sin because it is without works. Jesus, the Savior kept all the commandments in absolute perfection for us, ∴ salvation is without works, and He died for our sins, taking the eternal penalty for us.

This is a very good comment.

About Europe, women will not say NO but YES - and will add you as another boyfriend in their list. Plenty of women in all Europe have multiple boyfriends. I never met a woman in Europe who was lonely past her 13th or 14th birthday and had not several boyfriends, some women 25 y/o had already sexual experience with over 100 men... women in Europe are not so cruel and vulgar like their American counterparts, but they have no shame either, they talk differently and less hateful to men, just using them...

True, most people - men and women - have no empathy for men and often react scornful if something is going wrong - it is the unpleasant job for MGTOW/MRA to take care of those men. The way how badly many women treat men is a major reason why MGTOW/MRA do exist.

I remember one girl, 18 y/o, and I took at look at her cellphone (for a few seconds before she snatched it back), and I saw hundreds of male contacts. Another girl I met a couple of days after her 18th birthday told me she had slept with over 35 men, but I get the impression that she stopped counting at 35. I don't know what percentage of women are like that though, seemed like many were. I met some girls who claimed to have only had one or two boyfriends though.

Here is another good video where he explains what "forever alone" means and how this is inflecting millions of men in America.

"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"

"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."

FA = forever alone,
I hear that 'FA' for the first time, easy to remember these 2 letters.
The follow-up comments are interesting to read, and it seems only men and never women facing this 'FA' issue.

Some men really wrote sad comments....sad, but true...

I'm over fifty, and although I have no problem meeting or talking to women, I just can't put up with their constant bullshit. I was married for twenty years, and I've had a lot of girlfriends since my divorce nine years ago, and they're all such a pain in the ass that I just decided to be alone. I really pity younger guys who want a relationship, because most any girl you meet is going to be impossible to build a life with.

I’ve had a completely normal upbringing with a loving family but I have no idea why but women avoid me like the corpse of a diseased rat, even when I did absolutely nothing to them. It’s easy for me to interact with other males and make friends, but for some reason women don’t even want to look at me, let alone date. Do you have any possible ideas why?

What if there is no significant other for you? At least I'll know why. Human civilization has been f***ed up for decades. Divorce rates are at 50% in the west. Birth rates in the west are declining. Let's put it this way, for some people, there was nobody there to pair bond with you to begin with. If you believe that, you will be ok. I believe that because in my 20s, I never had a significant other. I now believe it was all a lie and it set me free. Why pursue something that likely doesn't even exist in the first place?

I'm normal as far i figured, still can't find a way to converse with wahmen & the idea to handle them when economic enters the fray

Nowadays i'm not even going out with friends unless summoned, too many collection to finish & i can't relate with my friends hobbies nowadays ontop of heavy traffic

Either i enter FA phase, or the whole world is the one crazy, or both
We will see however how this 'FA' will develop in future - now it's mainly about men from very young ones, not even 18 to their 45 or so... but in future I think this will change to the disadvantage of women who will be alone forever between their 45th birthday up to their death....
