Personally, I am an impatient man. I have some degree of patience, naturally, but not enough to wait many years before moving abroad. I admire those that too. Let's say a man begins his career early, works his way up, saves money and avoids overspending, relationships, expensive hobbies, for fifteen years. By the time he's 35-40, he starts seriously looking for a much younger wife abroad. He moves to her country, where his savings allow him to purchase vast lands and a lot of property, set up a business, a loaning agency, farm lands, a store... something that more or less runs itself, allowing him to retire early and focus on love and a family life at last.
With other men retiring in their sixties, a thrifty single man could easily retire in his late thirties to early forties if he has a somewhat good career and plays his cards right. Then he could live a comfortable and enjoyable life and do all the things other men did earlier in life.
I've always been intrigued by the dynamic between an older, experienced man and a far younger girl in a relationship. A man who's already had his adventures behind him, his wild days, and who is a source of calm and stability, complimented by his younger partner's youthful energy. Had I not married at 22, perhaps I would have waited another decade or more until getting hitched. I would have less years as a married man that way, and less years abroad, but I can see the upside of waiting. If that was the point Yohan tried to make, then I can respect him for that.
Of course waiting for retirement age, and not early retirement as I think was implied, would be preposterous..
That's fantasy. That would take the patience of Job. That life will not be available to most men in any way. Both with the ability to earn and save enough money, and the willingness to wait for decades. Is this supposed to be a joke?
Do you know how much fire and passion a man has in his 20s and early 30s? This is when he is supposed to have his family. He is not supposed to burn through that time without a woman, while he maintains the hope that some day he will finally get to touch a woman, after he turns 45, or 55. Are we being serious here? I mean seriously?
And this is the advice the MGTOW have for men? That they wait until half of their fire and light has already burned out before they go searching for contact with women. Because that is safe.
Do you see the problem here?
