    I guess if making sure your money and resources are safe is worth never having sex again, hey, do you. :D

    Haha you know what I meant. See we can laugh together since we are men and don't get offended by the smallest thing. But just think, where would you rather be this weekend, having to go shopping with a stupid woman (with you being the ball and chains, her personal valet) or maybe doing an activity she likes and you hate? Or how about not being with a woman and actually getting to cultivate one of your personal interests? Maybe going to the outdoors, fishing, watching movies all day? Doing something you want without having to get permission from some woman? Which one really sounds better to you?

    Lets reverse that around, is sex worth possibly losing everything you have worked incredibly hard for? Is it worth losing a good chunk of your money? Is it worth losing your house, your car, your retirement savings? Is sex worth being a woman's slave? Is it worth going into debt for? How much is sex truly worth?

    The latter.

    Prenups are a magical thing.

    So first of all you agree that being with a woman does not allow you to truly be you. You have to her bail and chains. That's good, at least it's progress.

    As for prenups, we've all seen how those work out a lot of times. Many of them are thrown out. A prenup also doesn't protect you against a rape or domestic dispute allegation.

    Know the law, and you'll be fine. Don't rape or beat your girl, and you'll be fine.

    A relationship means making sacrifices. Both people have to make them.

    Are you completely oblivious to what is happening in our society? Plenty of women are accusing men of "sexual misconduct" for activities that are minor. For activities they AGREED to (like consensual sex, but have since decided they regret it) or for activities that they had no problem with at the time.

    As a man you don't even have to be convicted anymore. Any woman could accuse you of sexual misconduct and your life is probably ruined. That's why the only solution is to only talk to women when absolutely necessary and only for business purposes in a room with other people.

    Any woman can destroy a man not just by an accusation, they don't have to prove anything. Does that not scare you at all?

    Nope. I don't mistreat women, so I am not fearful.

    Any relationship I've ever seen it was only the man making sacrifices. Never saw the women making any sacrifices. Kind of hypocritical isn't it?

    Are you dumb? You don't even have to actually mistreat a woman. Say a woman decided she wants your job, all she would have to do is make a false accusation and you're probably gone. She might or might not get your job but she's eliminated you as an obstacle. Maybe a woman just decides she doesn't like one of her male co-workers. Put in a false rape or sexual misconduct accusation to HR, boom, that guy is gone.

    Lets see you were dating a woman and decided it wasn't worked out and wanted to break up with her. Lets say she didn't want to break up. She could threaten you with a rape or sexual misconduct accusation if you don't stay with her. This is not theory, THIS HAS HAPPENED!!

    Every man should be fearful of women right now. Our society treats rape and sexual misconduct as guilty until proven innocent. Again, whether than man did it or not is secondary. The woman doesn't have to prove anything!

    That's not a concern for me.

    This is also not a concern for me.

    Well, I'm not afraid.

    I feel sorry for you then. You haven't seen a real, functional relationship.

    Let's put it this way, I could be robbed and killed walking out of my door. I could be murdered by my brother because he covets my possessions. I could be murdered in a shooting at my work by a disgruntled employee.

    However, I choose not to live my life in paranoid fear of things that are not likely to happen.

    But have you ever actually been in a relationship of your own?

    To answer your question, no, but not for lack of trying. Women never gave me the chance to ever get past the first few dates. I was never handsome enough, tall enough or enough of a "bad boy" to ever get their interests. I'm the type of guy that women wouldn't give the time of day to in high school, college or in my 20s but now that I'm in my 30s and fairly successful they want me to come in and clean up their mess. Sorry, I'm not coming in and cleaning up the mess the "bad boys" left after leaving them. These women wouldn't give me the time of day in my 20s, why should I give them the time of day now?

    I hadn't thought about that before, but it's an interesting point.

    I think you're right on both counts; many people do meet their partners at or through work, but thanks to the #MeToo movement, office romances are more taboo than ever. And more unlikely than ever to get initiated in the first place, due to men's concerns that even a legitimate, respectable romantic overture could be misconstrued and reported as harassment.

    I said people meet their partners at or through work. "Through work" would include occasions like work-related cocktail mixers, happy hour meetups, etc. But I suspect that participation in that type of stuff might be declining, too. Once again, with the concern being that you drink enough liquid courage to finally ask Janine from Accounting to go on a date sometime, then find yourself being called to the Human Resources office the next day.

    How about being with a woman enjoying shared interests? That is actually possible.

    Like actually coaching special teams. Just because we haven't seen it in awhile doesn't mean it's a unicorn.

    Orlando, thanks for posting. Much of this needs to be said. Men have become wimps. I see it with many of my friends. They have to ask permission to hang out. Many work at jobs they no longer care for, pay all of their wife's bills and are told by pop culture that the wife and mother is the value of any relationship. All 12 judges in district court where I live are women. How do you think men fare when a divorce is announced? Too many of my friends have been run over by a clear bias against successful men.

    That said. There are rules and a line. Most know where not to step over. Of course, there simply lacks due process for men when its her word against yours.

    Nonetheless, thanks for sharing.
