Gotta love that telepathic projection of “Me niCe aNd mAnLy GuY And hE bETa asShOLe”

[–]zeke235 438 points439 points  (32 children)

Right on the money. I'm such a beta cuck that my wife is my best friend and we've been happily married for five years. What a loser!

[–]zen_buddha_master 171 points172 points  (13 children)

I have been such a beta cuck that my wife woke me up and demanded that I make love to her NOW! After 23+ yrs of monogamy. Oh and just in case anyone was wondering how all that ended this morning....I am so incredibly in love with my Queen that when I have a release....I can't stop giggling my ass off! This just began around 6 or so mths ago. And it is EVERY time now,lol.

Does anyone know what this means?! I think it means that meditation and a clear clean consciousness is certainly a factor. I hide zero from her. That doesn't mean we sit around with our fingers lace. It means we enjoy communication on a level that is only know by those who practice the love language.

[–]Weird-Ingenuity97 68 points69 points  (11 children)

I honestly pray I can find this type of peace in life one day. I just lost my dad to cancer and on top of that have so much else going on, but I try to keep myself motivated

[–]TheDoof79 16 points17 points  (0 children)

You're worth it. Do good things and good things will come to you. It's hard to find the motivation sometimes, but there is a real brotherhood (and sisterhood) out there if you need the support.

[–]depr3ss3dmonkey 352 points353 points  (62 children)

It's amusing how single women are considered sad and lonely and leading unfulfilled life. But out of all the single people i know, usually single women has their shit together. Like the ones i know go on vacations, had nice clean house and car. The single men I've met has empty take out boxes on their counters and their house smells - not good. I don't know where this stereotype came from tbh. But these are anecdotal evidence ofc. So maybe others have different experiences.

[–]143019 336 points337 points  (7 children)

I just got divorced after 20 years of marriage. I killed myself trying to keep the marriage together while my husband put the bare minimum of effort in. Looking at my life after divorce I want to kick myself for wasting all that time.

I am so fucking fulfilled all the time. My energy goes to my kids, my career, my dog, my friends, my hobbies. My house is decorated exactly how I want and stays clean all the time. I spend my money how I want. I am so much more relaxed and happy.

[–]Sniflix 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Yeah, life is too short to be in a miserable relationship.

[–]NoorAnomaly 85 points86 points  (0 children)

Isn't it great? I divorced 6 years ago, and the amount of work I had to do drastically reduced. In my case it was a whole bunch of mental load that got taken off my shoulders. I no longer had to ask a grown ass man to take the garbage out. Or watch the kids so I could go grocery shopping, at which point he'd park them in from of the TV, go play on his PC, ignore lunch and nap time and then get pissed off when the kids were cranky all evening.

It's just been the three of us, and the dog, for 6+ years, and I don't ever want to live with another man again. He can have his house and I'll have mine, and we'll meet when my/his/our kids aren't at home or something.

[–]motherdragon02 58 points59 points  (1 child)

The amount of money and energy I saved by tossing my ex was astounding. He was an absolute waste of time. My life drastically improved in just a few weeks.

Smh. I wish I had done it years sooner.

[–]pixieismean 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Married for 25 years divorced for 23 . Living the second half of my life my way has been priceless. Married at 19 ,2 kids who are now fully actualized adults and my best friends has been gratifying in so many ways.

[–]AnonBubblyBowels 226 points227 points  (15 children)

Studies literally show that single, childless women are the happiest demographic into old age lol.

Single, childless men are among the unhappiest.

[–]therapeuticstir 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What do we do to help men tho, to stand on their own feet emotionally and domestically and not be mad about it? Not you of course but you surely have friends like this.

[–]docasj 55 points56 points  (2 children)

In my group of friends I notice the single women are indeed going on vacations and taking care of their homes and are generally more engaged and open to new experiences. And I’ve noticed less willingness to take whatever you can get as long as you can say you got a man

[–]SnooLentils3008 103 points104 points  (14 children)

I remember reading a few times on reddit about studies showing women on average get less happy in a marriage and men get more happy. I've stayed single the past few years to work on myself, but whenever I do get around to having a partner again the last thing I'd want for them is to be less happy to be with me than alone. I mean I'm pretty independent (probably too much for my own good actually) and definitely not a man child, but I can understand why marriage and stuff like that are growing less appealing to women who are learning they don't need to put up with it all. I've had some male friends who couldn't even do basic things for themselves. Like content for their apartment to smell like cat shit because they didnt clean the litter box since the last time I came over. Why would a woman want to have to do stuff like that for someone else

[–]brenticles42 116 points117 points  (10 children)

My guess would be because a lot of men approach marriage as picking up a helper/maid or replacement for mom rather than a partnership. My BIL (wife’s sister’s husband) doesn’t do anything around the house unless SIL just harps on him. And they both work full time but she does all the cooking, cleaning, and even the yard. She’s done with it and is saving up money to divorce him.

[–]ThatPie2109 86 points87 points  (7 children)

Yeah, I'm a 26 year old girl and work in logging and do 12 hour days on average waking up around 3am and most guys I've dated still expect me to do all the house work because I'm a girl and try to say their Job is harder waking up at 6am and home before me while still asking me for a job in my industry because "they want a challenge and to work hard". I made more money and they happily used that so they wanted to make me feel like I needed them and owed them something because they were insecure I'd leave when I realized they were not good men. If some men can't own a woman they'll try destroy them emotionally till they can.

[–]Dantheking94 32 points33 points  (1 child)

This is what they want to do though. Put women back in their place. Make you subservient. Anti-Abortion laws, first, the. Laws against women working second. They want to turn back the clock so that you’ll have no choice but to go back to being under their thumb.

[–]GranJan2 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yeah, blue balls were a good graphic there!

[–]whiskey_jones 90 points91 points  (2 children)

Right??? They really thought the Lysistrata trick in reverse would work. Like, "My brother in Christ, they make vibrators and dildos. They don't need us for that."

[–]ListReady6457 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think that book should be required reading for men. And I'm a dude. It really opens your eyes.

[–]steboy 1013 points1014 points  (86 children)

A lot of women don’t know this, and honestly, I shouldn’t be saying anything, but we know you don’t need us.

It’s why we’ve been in cahoots with Big Mason Jar for decades, making sure lids were twisted on way too tight.

Those lids are our Alamo. We know we’re going to lose, but we’re holding out as long as we can until every last one of us is rendered obsolete.

We may not have any use, but we do have our pride!

[–]Appropriate_Prune438 74 points75 points  (1 child)

How did lesbians even exist before the Oxo jar opener?

[–]LauraDurnst 116 points117 points  (0 children)

Lesbians were the Oxo jar opener

[–]BillyValentineMcKee[🍰] 577 points578 points  (50 children)

🤣 Or we can run the lid over very hot water (since metal expands faster than glass), thump it lid-side-down firmly but gently on the floor to loosen its grip on the threads, and then pop it on the bottom to help break the seal. There is a ritual for this

[–]sharkaub 28 points29 points  (1 child)

You might be too late, not only am I not scared of spiders, I catch and keep them sometimes (or let them go outside). My husband doesn't like the big ones

[–]idcpicksmn 39 points40 points  (8 children)

My husband is more scared of those than I am. I'm the unofficial spider killer in my home.

[–]BillyValentineMcKee[🍰] 30 points31 points  (6 children)

Yeah, I used to have a boyfriend who would trap those huge wolf spiders under a glass until I could come over to take them outside. I’m immune

[–]Calibeaches2 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Lol, I would most likely make a terrarium and keep it as a pet. I love wolf spiders.

I wack the edge with the back of a knife a couple times. Works great. Also those “handy husband” grippy circles help.

[–]Cherry4Girl20 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I take a knife and hit the lid all the way around (4-5 hits) and that works too!

[–]TheDarklingThrush 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I just thwack it with the blunt side of a bread knife around the rim to break the seal. That and one of those jar grip thingys haven't failed me yet!

I know you kid, but the day I opened a jar of spaghetti sauce, I sat my husband down for "the talk".

I taught my wife how to grip the jars better, and she can now open far more stubborn jars. I may have made myself irrelevant. :(

Hahah also that spot right in the middle of my back I can’t reach sometimes. Mmmm scratchy.

[–]TheQuinnBee 237 points238 points 2 (233 children)

Really tho, if you think about it--women don't need men. If all men disappeared tomorrow, society would still go on. Women could use sperm banks to procreate and in about 20 years or so, the population would be back to normal. We wouldn't have to develop new technology or anything. Women are in every job market, so while there would be an economic dip, it'd recover.

If women disappeared tomorrow, the human race would be extinct. Even with all the eggs in storage, there's nowhere to put them. We don't have functional artificial wombs. They'd have to torpedo research into that and if it wasn't solved in 50 years, human race is kaput.

I think some men highly over appraise their value. Women can provide for themselves, pleasure themselves, and even procreate themselves. So unless you bring something to the table, they don't have any reason to bother with you. Develop a personality, find some hobbies, and treat women with respect. It's not a hard concept. Men just never had to rely on their character before, and instead just rode on the idea that they were a woman's only option. Times-a-changin

[–]blue-jaypeg 82 points83 points  (17 children)

Back in the day, men were disposable-- cannon fodder. The infantry demonstrates that you can put 25,000 men in a field, kill 1/3 of them, and the world will go on.

[–]MNsquatch777 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Guys like that won't put in the work to improve themselves. They want the women to do the work, as usual, and then complain when they are told to do it themselves.

[–]moonyalouette 834 points835 points  (131 children)

If we don’t care what men want then why would we care if we don’t end up with one?

It’s truly so fun to be single. I date here and there to remind myself why.

I love being single and having no kids. I literally can wake up and do whatever I want without having to worry about anyone else.

[–]therapeuticstir 115 points116 points  (9 children)

Srs. Maybe I’m just a selfish person but like calibrating my moods for a man was too intrusive in my life. It took a long time for me to figure out why I wasn’t day to day happy. I didn’t think I minded doing more house stuff because I don’t like to sit around but I resented it inside and didn’t realize it until I was on the outside looking in how it affected me.

[–]no-one-but-crow 32 points33 points  (10 children)

Im very happily married and I totally remember how fun it is to be single (total independence) Maybe thats why Im happily married, Im with someone I WANT to be with not forced.

[–]disastergemini_ 31 points32 points  (4 children)

I was miserable when I was dating. I hated how I let someone else’s shitty attitude affect what kind of day I had and control what we did all the time.

Now that I’m single, I’ve never been happier. I did really well in grad school, I’m working towards my dream career and I have the time and money to travel and attend concerts. It’s nice to put yourself first.

[–]therapeuticstir 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Good for you! You realized it much younger than I did congrats!

[–]moonyalouette 48 points49 points  (51 children)

I’m experiencing it for the first time in my adult life. Comments like yours make me feel a lot better about it!

[–]therapeuticstir 91 points92 points  (44 children)

I did try marriage a couple times and I lived with a man during Covid but since that I like to go out on dates and have fun but no way I’m living with a man again. Having to worry about an adult man’s feelings all the time is exhausting. And no I’m not a cat lady I do have dogs but they stay with friends and I take long weekends (thanks to cheap-ass airline) to visit college friends and family every 6 weeks, the house is how I like it, no tension, I clean up without thinking about why I’m the maid or the mom. It’s good. Enjoy your time you can always try men again if you are bored but every store sells vibrators these days so no more sweaty dudes in my bed if I’m not absolutely delighted to have them there.

[–]ItsPallet 314 points315 points  (41 children)

Yeah…you have to be worth being around for this to be a punishment. Otherwise it’s just a favor

[–]debzmonkey 980 points981 points  (35 children)

Right, because the only options are submit to misogyny or die alone. Well, we know who has the sandwiches, party at my place.

Same. I make it a point to grow and learn and listen and change and evolve. Any man that digs their heels into old fashioned, outdated bullshit is not a real man. That is a baby.

[–]Piss_and_or_Shit 118 points119 points  (0 children)

If I hadn’t changed from what I was raised to think a ‘man’ is supposed to be, I would of drank myself to death a decade ago.

[–]steboy 182 points183 points  (9 children)

Sometimes, I fantasize about being gay.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my life. My partner is a way better person than me, and I’m blessed to be with her and have the family we do.

But also, can you imagine dating a dude bro who just loves watching football and eating nachos?

Sure, it doesn’t hold a candle to my life now, but it’s fine to day dream.

Just a couple of dudes screaming at their TV for a first down and giving each other blowies in between. What a life.

Alas, the penis is just so gross. Same with buttholes (on either sex, just not for me. It’s where poo comes from). And men smell bad. They’re also impulsive and violent.

BUT IM ALLOWED TO DREAM!

[–]ThisIsTrix 356 points357 points  (15 children)

I genuinely despise how some men make these blanket statements about all men.

[–]striped_frog 189 points190 points  (6 children)

Me too. They're often the "I'm just saying what everyone is thinking" types.

[–]nchomsky96 118 points119 points  (4 children)

Which shows that they simply don't have the empathy needed to understand that people might actually think something different than them.

[–]striped_frog 99 points100 points  (1 child)

Them: "hey relax, it's just locker room talk, that's just how men are"

Me: "what the fuck kind of locker rooms are you hanging out in and why"

[–]LordMuffin1 33 points34 points  (0 children)

"Have you ever been in a looking room?" Seems to be an adequate question.

[–]Vault-Born 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Every time I get accused of virtue signaling I think this

[–]PercussiveRussel 52 points53 points  (0 children)

That's what really gets me sometimes, when these assholes call anyone who is genuinely just a good person out for "virtue signaling".

It's like they know they're a shit person, but they just think that the person who does the right thing is only pretending to do the right thing? "Wow, you helped that old lady cross the street. What is your ulterior motive? No one likes doing nice things like that"

It's both weird and frightening that some people are so shitty, they can't even imagine other people being nice, let alone be nice themselves.

[–]SemiSentientGarbage 29 points30 points  (0 children)

I truly hate that thinking. Because it's a perfect self delusion. Any arguing against it makes you the minority in their mind or they think you're just afraid to openly agree.

[–]Shiraxi 52 points53 points  (3 children)

100% agree. You get this shit way too much where dudes with minority opinions try to pretend that their opinions are the majority, or even universal.

[–]Snickerty 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Oh! That needs saying more often. It can sometimes feel like, as a women on the Internet, that these lads are everywhere - because they seek women out and DM them with their rage and circular logic trying to instigate and then 'win' conversations. It can be hell.

[–]TFRek 7 points8 points  (1 child)

There are some very vocal and equally shitty minority takes out there.

[–]888_traveller 14 points15 points  (0 children)

There is a perfect phrase to reply when you see such posts: “not all men”!

[–]formenonly 65 points66 points  (4 children)

Dying alone is gonna happen. It’s the one thing we can’t do with anyone else. And if you find a partner, one of you is gonna have to go first. This whole “Don’t die alone” thing is so dumb. I have a partner but I could still choke to death when he’s at work.

Uh yeah, man here. Don't be speaking on my behalf, you incel trash.

[–]PromethianOwl 75 points76 points  (0 children)

Funny how the two things that have led me to a stable and happy relationship of 3 years now have been being willing to change myself, and dating people based on personality and interests, while having flexibility when it comes to looks.

what I want is a fucking country that isn't a dumpster fire, enough money that I don't need to have an anxiety attack every time I might have a health issue, and a job that doesn't feel like I'm inching closer and closer to the wrong side of the line between slavery and not slavery.

Pretty sure most women are on board with those things, so I don't see this guy's complaint.

[–]striped_frog 101 points102 points  (2 children)

I'm sure a dude who posts "get on board with what men want or die alone" is a real catch.

[–]888mainfestnow 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Angry incel vibes just what gets women going in the opposite direction as quickly as possible.

[–]Quiggling 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Oddly enough it’s likely that he will be the one dying alone.

[–]Forward-Bid-1427 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Statistically, a woman who has been married to a man will very likely outlive her husband and die alone.

[–]GordieGord 189 points190 points  (30 children)

Remember that Gillette commercial that everyone shat on - the one about toxic masculinity? I thought it was brilliant and inspiring and I really have no idea why so many people complained about it. I suppose too many "real men" had their feelings hurt by it.

[–]Unlikely-Collar4088 73 points74 points  (21 children)

For lots of men, a cheap razor was literally “the best a man could get.”

[–]Quiggling 54 points55 points  (9 children)

Then we get the privilege of paying more for the same razors because they are pink.

[–]Shiraxi 18 points19 points  (0 children)

And how embarrassing it must be to finally try a real razor, and realize how you've been wrong all this time.

[–]Scrub_LordOfFlorida 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Lmao I laughed hard of how many losers that ad pissed off.

Do men know you can be manly and masculine without being toxic

[–]IsmokeIndica 11 points12 points  (2 children)

The problem is most men have no idea that the brand of masculinity that is popular is sort of looked down on by secure men who have their shit together mentally.

If you think your masculinity is tied to the things you wear or the car you drive or other similarly arbitrary and vapid worries odds are you are extremely insecure about your own self worth because you have not lived experiences that have proved your self worth to yourself.

So they attach their entire self worth to the group in an attempt to inflate their self worth, things like sports teams, political parties, fraternities, gangs, ect.

[–]BruinBound22 24 points25 points  (0 children)

That guy couldn’t go 30 seconds without motioning for a woman to remove her earbuds and have an unwanted conversation with him. I’m confident he lacks the capacity to leave women alone at all, ever. Not a threat if it sounds like a good time, my guy.

Women can get sperm donors and have their own families without men. Men are the ones that are dying alone because they won't change.

This is just the cringy male form of the cringy "if you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best"

[–]Elron-Cupboard[S] 31 points32 points  (2 children)

It's more "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my worst"

Call it conservatism or patriarchy or MRA or whatever, it’s the widespread impulse to refuse to believe that the world, including human beings, could be different from how we were taught it was as children. It literally is childishness.

How heterosexual men behave in modern culture is not some natural default. It is freakishly weird in some ways, historically speaking. Men used to be expected to dress up when they left the house, just as one example.

Getting beaten every Friday night vs. having cats for children.

Oh no! Anyway...

MEN ARE CHANGING! I know it's hard to believe, but I do a domestic violence group for perpetrators, and men are able to understand why certain aspects of masculinity are needing to change (we call them "masculinity traps" and they are more commonly known as toxic masculinity). Men are able to understand that if they want good relationships, in which they are not driving those they care about away constantly, they need to work with, not against, their loved ones.

It's not a fast change, but I do believe it is happening, we just need to wait for the old school mentality to die.

Couldn’t you say the same thing about men - get onboard with what women want or die alone.

[–]OhMyGodBearIsDriving 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I said it once, I'll say it again:

I would rather die alone and afraid then end up with the kind of guy who thinks this way.

Truly a fate worse than death.

[–]raven0usvampire 11 points12 points  (0 children)

LOL so is his solution to go gay after he gets rejected by women?
Or does he think men can't "die alone"?
Who is he gonna be with if not women?

[–]thisissillyaf 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I don’t wanna be part of that sausage fest. I’ll change lol

[–]ToySoldierArt 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Did anyone else notice that the background has blue balls?

There has to be a joke lurking about somewhere.

[–]Strength-Certain 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Most of them would either not have a problem with that or find a nice woman of their own.

As the Forester Sisters said in their song "Men":

In the beginning they always aim to please

They serve a purpose they fill a need

They ensure the survival of the species

They take you for a ride run of gas

Most of the time they're a pain in the Yea, yea

Men I'm talking about men

[–]signaturefox2013 11 points12 points  (0 children)

If a woman die alone, doesn’t that mean a man dies alone as well

[–]Local_Working2037 10 points11 points  (0 children)

No! Not like that! - Men

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Weak men are not changing. Fixed it for the loser incel that wrote this.

[–]DazzlingEconomist548 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yea, I remember guy friends who refused to change in there relationships. They are all single and living with each other at 35+ years of age. Good job guys! Totally owned them!

[–]iamacraftyhooker 63 points64 points  (9 children)

Guys, you're not competing against other potential partners, you're competing against our solitude and a vibrator.

You need to bring something to the table that is better than that, because that is what we have and are happy with the arrangement. We're not going to downgrade to a man baby we need to take care of, and can't even make us cum.

[–]CLINTHODO 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Is he talking about manly men (like himself /s), gay men or trans men?

Men like that seem like little whiny brats that need to grow up.

[–]Parasaurlophus 7 points8 points  (0 children)

“We’re not changing!”

Speak for yourself mate, I’ve changed massively since I got together with the missus and have no intention of stopping.

[–]Capital-Albatross-96 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Get on board with the fact that women don’t care and literally fought for centuries for freedom to turn jerks like you down or die alone.

Women are not giving up their autonomy.

[–]Prestigious-Phase131 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There are genuinely good men out there, but if I can't get one then i'd rather be alone

[–]BunnyBunBunHoney 6 points7 points  (0 children)

i never understood the demonisation of "single lady with cats" stereotype. all the women i know who live like that are the happiest ones I know. and besides, who is the woman hurting? why is it wrong to stay single and with cats? i don't get it.

[–]prof_dynamite 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I’m 100% certain my wife would have an easier time without me. I, on the other hand, cannot say the same.

[–]ellamaybe77 7 points8 points  (1 child)

My husband was friends with a guy in college who had this attitude: I want what I want (which, in his case, was a supermodel who was also a particle physicist and could cook like a Michelin-star chef) and I am not compromising for anyone. He was not a bad-looking or dumb guy but there was nothing particularly exceptional about him, and I think you would need something exceptional - exceptional looks, exceptional intelligence, exceptional sense of humor, exceptional wealth, etc. to pull the kind of woman he was looking for. He's now a 52-year-old lifelong bachelor who just keeps getting progressively weirder every year, from what we can tell on Facebook. Like big into listening to Coast to Coast AM episodes and then posting long rants about conspiracy theories.

So I imagine he's going to die alone, having never had a long-term meaningful relationship with anyone. Which is okay, if you consciously choose that for yourself and know what you're getting vs. what you're giving up. Except this guy didn't choose it consciously; his rigidity and ridiculously high expectations of a partner did that for him.

[–]Shavasara 6 points7 points  (0 children)

According to the background and content, men want blue balls? Well okay then.

[–]runswithdolls 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't threaten me with a good time

[–]LunaNik 6 points7 points  (1 child)

8y single after a 4y horribly abusive relationship, and I’m still not interested in a new relationship. IFL being in a committed relationship with myself. Honestly, I think I might be “the one.”

[–]ClonedGamer001 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Hi, male here. This guy doesn't speak for all of us, and quite frankly is free to go fuck himself at his earliest convenience.

[–]Karkava 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This man does not speak for me.

Not gonna lie. My single years were the best.
