Predictably, you boiled it down perfectly.
Sense of humor is essential. When did everyone start getting so butt-hurt about everything? I laugh at myself all the time! Life is way too short.
Values. If people share values then everything else will take care of itself. You don’t need a list of demands any more. It’s curious that we never want to talk about values other than in vague terms.
Most of what we see around us is an illusion One crafted to keep us afraid and consuming. Once you can see past that all the BS just falls away.
I am having a hard time enjoying the ride. As a man I am expected to finance the ride even if I get nothing out of it. I would rather spend my time and resources on myself and my side hustles at this point. Predictably, women see me doing this and they become attracted, LoL!
Nobody in their right mind appreciates a man who invests a thousand dollars and gets a return of 5 cents. Strangely, this is exactly what women expect of men in the dating market.
Speaking of health conscious, I wrote a missive here on weight loss. Nobody liked it or even read it as far as I can tell.
It’s really about agency.
The next time you go to the grocery store stop and really look at what is on the shelves. Aisle after aisle of processed food. I never touch the stuff.
If you look at what people are purchasing it is frightening.
Morbidly obese women pushing around carts of processed food and disguised or non-disguised sugar drinks. Wait for it! It is all the fault of the patriarchy! There’s an invisible patriarch with a gun to everyone’s head, apparently. I’ve never met him.
We have seen the enemy and he is us.
