I just got out of a relationship and I am realizing how cripplingly lonely I am now. Especially at night. I have no friends and before the relationship it didn't bother me. But then I guess I adjusted to the new higher level of connection and socialization. Now being alone feels unbearable and I have no friends to lean on.

I need to make friends and I need to try and start dating again and I'm going to make an attempt. But in the meantime, what do I do?

I used to literally make fun of people for this, for an inability to be alone. Now here I am on the other side of it, feeling suicidal every night because I have no one to talk too.

Things I am currently doing;
>working out
>going on walks
>listening to podcasts
>going to bed early

All of it helps for a bit, when I'm engaged with it, but as soon as I stop moving I'm just ready to kill myself

>What is /htgwg/?
How to Get Women General is by men, for men, about women, so bring all of your questions about getting (and dealing with) women here. Some people on this website actually get laid, and a small subset of them even want to help others. All anons are welcome to ask questions from more experienced anons, share experiences, get a second opinion, and give updates on advice received. It doesn't matter what you're struggling with, we know how hard it can be, we got you brah.

We can't help if we don't understand your situation, so try to provide as much (useful) background as possible ("I was at the bar, this chick was checking me out and .....", what your relationship is with the girl, how long have you known her, screenshots or outline of conversation if any, etc). Don't forget to ask an actual question.

Thinking more on it I think this is probably the case.

>Have you had sex with her yet or at least tried to kiss her?
Shit man, we're both awkward as shit. My dumb ass is just looking for perfect opportunities instead of making a move. Observational paralysis type stuff. I'm just lucky that she's a good church girl.
Now that I think of it, what are the cues to make a move? I’ve never really dated in the long term

Why the fuck did I even get married. My wife is insufferable and always knows the most terrible thing to say to ruin my day 1st minute in the morning.
Should I just ignore her and do my thing? Today I said I'll go to the gym because I've been sitting at home all weekend doing literally nothing, and she drops me the bomb that she will be going to the mall by herself if i go to the gym (again, after sitting at home all weekend not even going 1 step outside).
I feel like this is another one of her shitty games, I'm tempted to ignore her and just go to the gym like I planned

I know this sounds small and stupid but it adds up. Day in and day out, minute by minute I'm always met with resistance, it's never "OK honey do your thing and we'll see you at home"
Idk man this happens often, she puts me in an irritating position. I hate this and I hate her family, everything I do is a constant upstream battle against her whole genetic exisistence.

Any married anons have experienced this? How did ignoring her and doing your own thing work out? Did it eventually lest to divorce (you're never there for me) or did she clean up her game? Honestly the only thing keeping me around her is the prospect of children, since we agreed we'll try to have a kid next year.

The issue is that the OP is a horribly unreliable narrator and gives zero examples of her "going ape shit" or anything like that. Going ape shit = she wants to go to the mall.
Why is it bad she wants to go the mall? People have their theories, but OP came back again and wouldn't say.
He also goes off on weird tangents, like inexplicably saying he hates his wife's family and never mentioning it again.
>Day in and day out, minute by minute I'm always met with resistance
Can you explain how this is resistance and not just you perceiving it as resistance?
>Why the fuck did I even get married.

>Is 25 old or not?
for women, maybe. Internationally, that's the average age at which you should have been married. As a man, you can marry even later. But women don't have it so easy as they visibly age quicker than men do- they don't look good older than 25. As far as finances and careers go, you should already have something established around this time. It is evidence of your progress and hardwork since 18. But I suppose the saying still remains
>no one takes you seriously before age 25
You're not young anymore, or well, we're not young anymore anon

We're "adults" now. Nobody will sugarcoat it anymore, it's all seriousness from here.
Old for what? It's old to be 25 and a virgin. It's old to be a post-high school neet. It's young if you're genuinely trying and improving yourself.
0-24 = Young
25-29 = Neither young or old
30+ = Old
Can confirm

It's been about 5 months since I lost my gf, Apartment, dog and career. Yeah all at once. Left my job and everything else fell apart. Been unable to get any traction. Anyone here ever want to fucking give up? Like seriously
get a job
Yeah I'm trying. Maybe I need to switch up my approach. I'm in a professional field and it's just been slow
Nearly every day I want to give up, OP. Sorry about the dog. I’ve a feeling that one might’ve stung the most, it would if it were me, anyway.

Sometimes it’s okay to give up. But only if it’s giving up things that’s killing us, or hopes and dreams that weren’t meant to be. Just refuse to give up on yourself, bro. It’s all you can do.

Remember who it was who saw themself into a career in first place, into an apartment, into what you thought was a good relationship, yeah it went bad but you still brought your half to it. Point is, all the good things you’ve had, that was from your efforts. You might be wiped out, you might’ve fallen from a height but bro, the depth of that fall is evidence of the lofty height you are capable of.

And that shit is untouchable, your capability. But only if you refuse to give up on that much. So be good to yourself when you can. Process the pain, let it hurt as it needs to, and then heal up.
Same situation as you OP, except the dog. I know the feels.

As other anon said, get a job. Just about any job. Financial security and roof above your head is priority. Then slowly work on other aspects of your life. If you stay at home and brood all day, it's going to destroy you. Stepping outside, like working will distract you and mend you. Good luck man.
I've had about 30 jobs in my life. None of them paid enough to enjoy a reasonable quality of life.

The cost of renting/owning goes up every year compared to the prevailing wage of any area. Every year regular people lose financial ground. Quality of life decreases.

if you are poor in USA you will live near Mexicans and blacks. You will hear car/tire noises all night long. Gunshots. People give you dirty looks like its prison. Trash all over the ground. Pitbulls running loose more often than you can believe.

Develop esteem and learn how to appreciate your positive traits you lock in that vault.

If you don't believe it's possible for you then I will believe in you.
Why would you believe me? I'm so deep in self hatred that Ive Lost touch with myself, I dont feel special to me anymore. I hit the gym, have friends, help people, but i feel bad constantly and feel that the only way to makes things right is to suffer Alone, isolate myself and die like a lone animal.

Why is that enough? If it won't go away, there's no point no matter how easy it gets

How do I stop being good with people?

Story short: I always help people when I can, which is most of the time.

I'm asking this question due to y habit of helping hobos. First one is okay. He's been around our third-worlder neighborhood for at least a decade and hasn't brought any problems. Second one is, to put it simply, crazy. He has enough charisma to make you pity him, so I've even bought him a lot of food, worth for two weeks. However, I've noticed he has problems with cops in the area (he actively avoids them). Last time I encountered him he went on this ramble how he was hit with a stone in the back of the head by this other hobo. He told me he turned and slashed his face with the very same stone. While doing this, he dramatized it as well as he could to the point he even gripped my jacket with his dirty hands. After that he had the face to ask me for actual money and not just spare change. After seeing that I've got the feeling he's an actual crackhead.

How do I stop helping this guy I can always encounter in the street? How do I strip myself of these preconceived beliefs of human dignity? Simply put, how do I become a careless piece of shit? I know these people don't change and that they are disgusting, but I don't have the straight face to simply say "no" to people.

They’re not animals though. They’re broken people. Either broken by something else, or someone else, or they broke themselves. Showing them dignity is how to remind them they can still mend themselves.

This is what I feel with the second hobo. He actually asked me to buy him more food, so I now know he expects me to keep helping him like last time.

I feel this could work out with a minute set of people. But how can you tell sincerity starts and self-centred behaviour ends? Sometimes I feel even hobo 1 just engages in conversation with me so he can ask me stuff at the end. I doubt self-amendment too. One's too old, the other is a nutjob with rotten-teeth.
Most of them can't mend themselves though, and humans are in fact animals. There's an abundance of assistance a available on top of all that it would take to have the average persons family and friend group abandon them. People that suffer true homelessness are almost always some version of largely unstable whether it's mental illness, addiction, or multiple factors. All that to say, I dont want raccoons so I bag and cover my trash. I dont want roaches so my home is cleaned consistently. Roaches and raccoons have their place in this world and in their ecosystems but it ain't on my property where I'd have to deal with the negative consequence of their attraction to my area. I did have a coon once and he was really persistent. Its illegal in my state to kill or even trap and relocate raccoons. I put a heavy brick on my trashcan lid and he could not longer eat from it. Once his incentive was removed he moved along in short order unharmed and no worse for wear, off to find his next incentive.
>Most of them can't mend themselves though, and humans are in fact animals.

Do you feel like an animal?
Yes because of am one. Thats like asking a born blind person if they "feel" blind. Uh yeah I guess but I've never been sighted so I feel how I've always felt. Just how any animal would feel. You don't feel like you should have wings cause you've never had them

Hey, man. Listen up.
You have been fooled by internet degenerates and high speed pornography into thinking that you should be a girl or something.
If there's a dick and a pair of balls between your legs, God created you a Man and you should behave as such. Go forth protecting the weak while treading the path of justice.
Rather just be pretty and peaceful
get a waist binder for exercising so you can make your waist slimmer
Does that actually work?

Does it matter that you grew up on government assistance such as food stamps/section 8 and if your parents didn't have it itd be difficult to raise you?

Yeah but im not saying people cant push to be successful, im asking if its bad when people make fun of you for growing up on all this help. Basically saying you're a loser because without help you wouldn't exist.

who cares? You are an adult. Why do other people's opinions matter to you?
>Basically saying you're a loser because without help you wouldn't exist.
Maybe that doesn't look good on your parents. But you didn't have a choice in it. Once you're grown, that shouldn't matter at all. It only looks bad on you if you've grown into an adult NOW and still get gibs from taxpayers like a lazy stereotype. Get on your own feet now and feed yourself with the work with your own hands. That's more respectable. Don't be like your parents.
Of course it does.
Remember Ratatouille. Anyone can cook. Perhaps not everyone can be a great chef, but a great chef can come from anywhere.
My parents do look bad for having children and not being able to support them. Its annoying hearing people say they shouldn't have children if they cant support them. That's what you have to live with because of your parents.
like no normal people can support children easily now. Why do you think every first world country is having to import shit loads of immigrants

My parents passed and left me alone as their only child at 25 with $3,000,000 and their estimated $450,000 house. I just finished my PA schooling and was about to look for a job before they passed. My plan was to sell the house and put it all into any account with a garunteed 2-5% and live off the interest. My idea is that I’ll move to a SE Asian or Latin American country and live like a king in paradise until I’m 30 or so. I need to choose a place that my money will go the farthest that has relatively safe areas for white Americans. Other considerations would be nice weather, good food, lax laws for pot and alcohol, pretty women, easily learned language, and adequate hygiene and hospitals. Where would be good places to move to? What else would you recommend I do with my life now that I’ll likely never have to work if I manage it well and don’t fall into bad habits?
11 replies omitted. Click here to view.
What you should do is buy a small property for yourself and pay it off in full. Put a huge chunk of the money in CDs or shit that pays interest. Work social jobs for fun like Bar Tender, Bouncer, Theme Park, etc.

Instead of moving to another country, just go on vacations. You'll have a permanent place in USA, have fun overseas no hassle to where your shit is, then you come back and relax. If you ever meet someone you can rent out your property for extra income.
you sound like a faggot and i hope your family leaves you nothing
Fuck off, don't listen to this piece of shit OP
Sorry for your loss. Most people reccomend not making any huge life changes right after a big loss (I don't know how long it's been but I assume this is somewhat recent) so you may want to sit on it and live lofe as you were before, just for a little while. That said, if it's been a while, I'm not sure where you should move, but you should pursue artistic desires in your alone time and do humanitarian volunteer work if you are looking for a sense of fulfillment in a new life where I assume you know no one. Try to forge some level of relationship with any family you have left, if any, because the lonliness of a move like that is rough, especially if you have no one to call.
Am I crazy here? I literally cannot imagine enjoying the experience. The entire time, I would be worried that everything that remained of my family was burning. I mean, your parents work their entire lives to provide an inheritance to you. Even then, it's good fortune to have any since end of life care can suck up all but the most massive fortunes.
It's not like I'm saying to take the money and burn it here. He can use it for good things, and the money freed in doing so can be spent elsewhere.
You know usually people ask what you did with an inheritance. Does he really want to explain to people for the rest of his life that he spent his family's money on Costa Rica?
