I'm 30 years old and I've never come inside a woman

I've had sex with a few different girls, it's just that I can feel literally nothing with a condom on, and I've never had sex without a condom for fear of getting her pregnant

I'm beginning to feel like I'm missing out on a lot of intimacy

>>
>>17921842
Having done both the intimacy really feels more a factor of how close I am with the partner.

Outside of that.. coming inside does feel a lot better than a condom, on a physical and mental level. Perhaps consider contraceptives with your partner other than condoms. Or maybe even tying the ol tubes if you're going childless.
>>
>>17921867

Yeah, problem is I've only ever had one partner who I felt comfortable enough with to believe them about taking the pill, and the pill made them sick, I have a real hard time trusting people about this sort of thing

I would like a kid someday too, otherwise I would tie the tubes
>>
>>17921873
Are you with mostly casual partners, or do you have a steady relationship going? I guess that kinda depends on where to go from there. Building that trust up with a special lady could be very rewarding. It does have its risks of course.
>>
I need a new career but I don't know what to do or how to get over the feeling of hopelessness. I'm not qualified to do anything good so whatever job I get I'm still going to want to kill myself. I failed out of university when I was 18 so I'm afraid of going to school again. I just don't see any hope for the future.
>>
>>17921893
Had a couple of steady relationships, but other than that just casual partners. I'd never really trust a casual partner enough to fuck them without a condom though. Which is beginning to make them seem pointless because like I said I literally cannot feel a fucking thing with a condom on

I'm just worried that maybe my trust issues are making intimacy impossible if I've reached the age of 30 and never managed to come inside a girl

I mean I guess I should be more specific: Not only have I never managed to come inside a girl, no girl has ever managed to make me come, from oral or anything. Blowjobs also don't really feel like much
>>
>>17921902
Come now. Why did you fail out originally? I'll bet it wasn't to do with your abilities.

I stopped doing my homework then stopped showing up. My habits have been terrible since elementary school, so it was to be expected.

>>17921972
I feel you. the folks I got off with were the ones I was closer with. Hopefully there's someone out there worth taking the plunge with.

Alternatively, you can always try different equipment. female condoms, different lubes, ridged condoms, and so forth.

I'm 30 and I haven't touched a girl for around 6 years. I'm kinda okay with that, because since I was born I have had a certain fetish that can't be played out in real life. Or so I thought.

During the last few years I spent so much time fapping and lurking in forums dedicated to that fetish it has basically become my "hobby". It's constantly on my mind and getting worse from day to day. I can't even concentrate at work anymore.

I know I should probably just stop looking at that stuff, but I can't. Whenever I see a cute image related to the fetish, I really feel like I'm "in love". A fuzzy, warm sensation in my stomach.

I'm starting to feel like a creep. I always told myself that I don't need a new gf because "fapping to fetish stuff is better anyways", but I think I fucked up somewhere down the line. Kinda like I rewired my brain to only get off on 2D girls in certain situations.

I feel like I'll never be able to revert back to a "normal" state of mind. And all I really want is just a hug that's not answered back by my fucking daki. Please kill me.

lack of motivation? just skipping homework and class for the hell of it?
>>
>>17921998
I suppose it was lack of motivation or just laziness. I didn't do my homework in highschool either. I either read or played games instead. When my failing grades would come back halfway through the semester I would get banned from doing anything, and be forced to sit at the kitchen table and not allowed to leave until my homework is done. Even still I would just stare at the page without doing anything for hours. I started skipping because it got depressing to show up to class when I was so behind and had no hope of catching up. I can't rely on myself at all.

Guys 30 and older-

How do you feel knowing that if you wanted to have sex with a hot girl in her prime, it's probably too late for you? Do you feel regret or just not care?

I'm 25 right now, I only had sex one time when I was 19. I haven't had sex in my 20s because I have too much going on in my mind. and I suspect it'll be like this into my
30s. So I don't think sex is going to happen the next 5 years, infact I doubt it. I've had opprotunities, but I've turned them down because I didn't feel comfortable with it
>>
>>17922034

Fun fact: Lots of younger girls love older guys, and people who bitch about MUH AGE GAP UR CREEPY are faggots. If she's over 18 she's an adult, and if she's over 21 she's pretty much as mentally mature as she's ever going to get anyway. If people whine at you about the age gap console yourself by fucking your hot young gf

Sounds like you're still just going through the motions. What do you *want*?

>>17922047

oh, really? I just have a hard time seeing that desu
>>
>>17922047

To add, assume I was 31 and met a 22 year old girl. What 22 year old would want a 31 year old guy who only had sex one time 10 years prior?
>>
>>17922071
is the girl interested in the man? then it's irrelevant otherwise
>>
>>17922071

More than you might think. You're putting too much focus on the 'I've only had sex once' thing. What's probably killing you is the social awkwardness that led to that being the case, which is something you have 100 percent control over.

As a 31 year old, you have a lot more going for you than most 22 year old guys. You've probably got your life together at least a bit, you're more mature, you're more steady-handed, you're probably more discerning than just someone looking for a hole to fuck (most 22 year old guys.) In addition, for a lot of girls, older guys just plain look better. There are some stunning 20-something guys, of course, but a lot of 20-something guys, perhaps even a slight majority, still have a bit of a babyface look to them. By 30, that's usually gone.

You can easily have sex with stunning young girls up to age 40. Past then it probably drops off.

I just turned 25 and feel stuck. I still live with my parents and don't really make a lot of money. I do kind of have my dream job though, so it's really a matter of making more money from it. Anyone got any life tips for a human fresh out of his first quarter century?

I'm nearing 30 this month, so I speak from experience...

while girls have their prime on early 20s, men tend to be on their prime on their 30s
I'm probably more confident and feeling better than I had my whole life, I'm also healthier and better looking (going /fit/)
and its like a switch has happened and I'm having 20 something girls instantly attracted to me
all of that while still being a man child, not financially stable and with no prospects for the future

last year I broke up a 4y relationship with a 30yo girl, exactly why I want to fool around and enjoy life a bit more while on my prime, and that happens be exactly what the young girls want

its only somewhere near the 40s that it starts getting creepy for men to date really young girls, and even then you probably want to slow down, have less energy to spend, don't think about sex all the time and want a more mature partner

I'm a professional musician. I'm in a band that I was a big fan of a few years ago, and we tour regularly and are about to release a new album.

I have artistic resources that I could be putting to use, just no good ideas.

>>17922119

I hear what you are saying. I just can't picture that Tbh. Yeah, I'm getting my life together, and I'm way better off than the majority of my peers. I had close to $90k in my savings, I'm pursuing a dream job, I started working out a few weeks ago. But even still I don't feel content. and I just don't feel like I'm ready for girls right now at 25. so I know it will be years before anything happens again. Easily into my 30s, but even still. I can't see me at 30 years old getting younger girls. Like where would I even meet them? How would we have anything in common?

>>17922128

I honestly don't know if I'm socially awkward. At work, co-workers like to work with me. Even the females i work with like to work the same position with me and have fun conversations.

So I don't know if they think I'm awkward or not. There was one guy there who everyone talked about as being awkward. He was 45 years old, I felt bad for him Tbh. People thought he was weird because he was a virgin. He was a good worker tho, but people didn't like to talk to him because he was "awkward".

Okay so you've quite literally traded money for happiness. Why are people confused when they do this? I respect that you worked hard and diligently saved your money, but now you have a dollar figure representing time that wasn't spent on developing your social/romantic life. If you're worried about having sex with a hot girl in her prime and you have $90k in your bank account I think there are some options for you...
>>

other anon here, it's actually true. 29 y/o, met a 16 year old two years ago, started fucking her when she was 18. She wants it 4-6 times a day, it is really demanding but also really rewarding, best sex I've ever had. There's also this 13 y/o that's in love with me, obviously can't do shit about that but it just proves the Point that Girls want older guys. I was a virgin until I was 23, btw.

>>17922219
Met her at a sports convention, thought she was 5 years older than it turned out she was. Was kind of awkward when I found out she was 16 but by then it was already clear that we both had a thing for each other.
The 13 y/o is from a Sports Club and I have honestly no idea what I did to impress her, never even talked to her. She basically one day just walked over to me and massaged me out of the blue and has been cuddly ever since.
>>
>>17922232

That seems really weird to me Tbh. What do you even talk about with girls that young?
>>
>>17922189

I mean that I'm happy you're able to pursue your dream career (which is what, by the way? Being a pilot?), but the fact that you spent a lot of time working/being in the military in your 20's means that you traded that for time you could have spent working 20% less and focusing that energy on finding girlfriends or whatever.

And fine, no hookers. But shit, you could afford to budget some money out for going on dates. Meet some girls on Tinder or OKCupid and take them out.

>>17922236

Pretty much nothing until you start talking about taboos like sex and drugs, then you get to "educate" them like the big grown up you are
>>
>>17922189
Not him, but I think the point being made is that there isn't balance in your life.

Yes, you have very stable, even enviable finances at age 25. But you did so at the cost of some prime years for social development.

I'm not knocking your choices, mind you. I think if that was your priority then you should be proud of where you've arrived at and the dedication you've shown towards your goal. I'm just saying that it seems like you're starting to realize that it's not everything, and I would say that a lot of the source of your current discontent is a lack of experiences and social bonds that are a part of a well-rounded early 20s imo.
>>
>>17922236
It really depends on the girl desu. That 18 y/o is more mature than most girls my age, but that's obviously not the rule.
Things we talk about is family & friends, culture, movies, hobbies (we both love motorcycling, for example). Idk, same things you talk about with anyone?

Hmm. Perhaps you're right. Maybe I should just accept that I've already traded away that part of life, and that it's too late. I should just accept it and try to not thinking about girls in the future. Thanks anons

No no definitely don't give up on it. There are 7 billion other people out there, there is more than one person that fits your idea of a good mate. There's a very very small chance you'll just bump in to them one day by accident, but really you should probably be putting at least minimal effort into it.

Just thinking about it, people my age have already been learning about and experiencing the opposite sex for a minimum of 10 years. 10 years of experience. I don't have any of that. So, on a relationship sense, I'm at the same level as a 15 year old. No girl wants that. So I guess my window already closed. Oh well, I guess it's good I understand that at least, right?

If you'd actually get off your ass and honestly do something about it, you'd be up to par with your regular guy in a few years. Factor in that, unlike girls, you can basically fuck forever, there is PLENTY of time. There's just one Thing stopping you, and that's you.

This might as well be scripture in the Beta Bible at this point.

>Yes, you have very stable, even enviable finances at age 25. But you did so at the cost of some prime years for social development.

I too was similar to this anon. Army from 17-24, saved and invested well. My social development was different than my civilian peers, obviously, but I can tell it affects me at 31yr of age. Definitely not very empathetic towards others, especially in my relationships. I feel that I can't trust others with my problems as they are my own and I need to fix it. People and friends always come to me for help or assistance, and sometimes my mental state is even worse than theirs from compartmentalization of my own feelings. Really not healthy

I hit a real low point last August when I was being turned down for job interviews (the ones I did get call backs on was where I left out military time). I had one promising interview, which I didn't make it to since on the way there, I got pulled over for a right on red, find out my registration was expired (motor vehicles paperwork fault), got fined and towed. I had 80$ in my pocket, the tow guy cut me some slack and charged 90, so I had to go ask a neighbor for money. I've never asked anyone for money.

That night, after clearing everything up, I sat down in my chair and literally cried. Figured I needed to get life on a career path and better myself. Become happy with myself and all that nonsense. Broke up with my girlfriend because I felt like I wasn't moving in a positive direction and of course self worth

Since then I've been on the upward path and back to feeling great again, back taking classes and still bullshit work but hopefully next year I can apply for some medical degree

>>17922153
>There was one guy there who everyone talked about as being awkward. He was 45 years old
that's the point exactly,
are really not socially awkward? can you get alone and talk to a girl you might be interested without nerving or choking up
are you confident enough to just go up to someone (even if you know them already) and ask her out?

>>17922136
this also servers you too...
you're thinking when you achieve something, then magically afterwards you're gonna feel better, this nearly never happens, even with over-achieving people
but the thing about getting older, is that you to stop to care much about what people think, you stop thinking about the superficiality of things, and thus you feel better over little things of life

you also know time is passing, and eventually time will run out to do the stuff you actually want to, so you do actually take more action besides wasting time overthinking it...

so it looks like you're waiting till 30s to be "worthy" of something and have sex again, but if you spend all this time you got just never interacting with a woman and without sex, you just gonna be like that 45 virgin
if you want to date girls, you should be going out now and actively trying to get better, if you start learning game by now when you reach 30 you will be a master boss at pickup (or married)

How did yall figure out what you wanted to do? I kinda forced my way through college because of my parents, work at a shitty desk job, and am beginning to feel like shit because someone from my HS class just made the Forbes 30 under 30, while I ain't doin shit.

I spoke with someone today about ambition. He has been happy with the same job for almost a decade but his family pressures him into bigger ambitions and making better money.
We make a modest salary, but its good considering we dont have college degrees.
I would just get a specific certification or trade if I wanted to change jobs.
There is the labor work force and knowledge based work force. Decide which you want to pursue.

30 year old NEET loser here. Beginning to think I might have something seriously wrong with me, personality wise. It can't just have been "them" all this time. It's not the world. It's me.

I can't plan, I can't do shit, I can't let things go, I'm constantly frustrated. I'm off weed for a few days, now, and I'm remembering why I smoked it. It makes me mellow the fuck out and not get upset at when I do shit at a videogame, or when life throws a curveball. Everything is always the end of the world for me, and I'm fucking sick of it. It's so paralyzing. Right now I WANT to do something. But I take everything so fucking seriously that I can't enjoy it, because I know I'll suck.

I feel like I'm constantly angry. I hate this feel. I wish I could be mellow without weed. And be productive. I wish I could be an actual human being. I want to get out of this mess, boys. I want to be normal. I want to be one of those inspiring success stories. Or even just a mediocre one.

Life is such a fucking chore. I legit do not enjoy living, right now. But I want to.

Inb4 seek help. I have. I've done so all my adult life, and I'm in therapy right now. It's just not going fast enough for me. Some talk once every week, and the dude is leaving to take a vacation for a month+ in a few weeks. I'm beginning to get really distrustful of therapy as a means to help me, both because I'm (apparently) extremely difficult, and because shit like this keeps happening. By parents were told I might have Assburgers when I was 4, and never did anything, and none of the help I sought ever... helped. Right now it feels actually somewhat decent, but I want to get on with things.

I greatly fear that I will become one of those guys with no life and a shitty job, who is the weird, lonely guy of the neighbourhood, suspected (correctly) of being a huge pervert. I don't want that. Death would be preferable, but it would make my mother so damn sad.

Said it all right there buddy.... its always us, and the world is not out to fuck us...
bu yeah you need help,
take action to get you butt off the chair and do other stuff, look for a job you can endure, get out of your comfort zone, go to places and try to meet people
if it needs, try to learn game, as it main point is actually socializing as a normal person and improve socially
if can get the very little first steps, then you might get somewhere

I'm 30 and have never dated anybody older than 24. These relationships go sour because the women are really fucking needy, crave attention, and give me nothing in return. They only think about themselves.

Is that just an age thing for females? Do older women 30+ do this shit?
>>
>>17923218
well, older women should be more mature and self assertive to not nag over little things or crave attention
however older women are also nearing closing window for childbirth and marriage, so take that into consideration

Thanks. One of my problems is negativity. I'm hugely negative. It's what leads me to not do things. I always imagine the worst will happen, so I avoid it by doing nothing.

I'm aware I have shitty thought patterns, and there's stuff I COULD be doing. It's hard to change those thought patterns, though. It takes a lot of effort to peptalk yourself into doing stuff when there's a voice in your head whispering "you are worthless" constantly. It's shame, neverending shame at my situation, at myself, as a human being. But then I think back, and I realize I've ALWAYS been fucking myself over with this, even as a 16 year old retard I was telling myself I was a loser because I thought American movies were real, and I was supposed to be partying every weekend and having drunk orgies.

It's weird, but agonizing over things takes a lot of mental energy. I run and rerun things in my head, and wear myself out. Instead of doing things, I keep a backlog in my head of things I SHOULD do. It's the reverse effect of telling people you will do X thing, which makes you feel like you've already done it, so you never actually do it. I tell myself, so I feel like I'm always doing those things, yet I never do them. You get this weird effect where you feel like you don't have any time, but instead you sit around doing nothing.

Shit, I don't think I've ever put it this clearly. This kind of thinking is a major block to me, and I'm going to try and stop this shit.

You've set yourself up for it. Thriving when you have been given every advantage isn't very inspiring. Overcoming great challenges is.

Please keep looking for strategies and teachers who work for you. You're not so abnormal, and there are lots of people who would be inspired by your story, once you get where you want to be.

Regretting wasting my time when I was younger. Didn't get a job until I was 22. Started college at that age too, but I'm stuck juggling between college and work so I don't think I will be graduating soon.

Just waiting on a promotion to go through at work so I can actually start doing something that I enjoy. It would make me not hate life and not regret wasting my time over the first few years of my adulthood.

It's really hard to make progress because it's like a week of good days (exercise, saving money, socializing) followed by a week of bad days (drinking alone) making progress really hard. I honestly haven't made any progress in life all 2016, for all the self-help on confidence and attempts to fake it till I make it , everything's soon undone when waves of suicidal thoughts hit

Looking to move out this year at 27. No debt, no car, and still living rent free with my dad. Take home $1500 a month and save about $1200 of it. I managed to save up $10k last year. I am looking to move to the nearest major city. For what it offers(good job market, plenty to do, bike friendly) it is very low cost of living.

Rent on a cheap place or a mortgage on a small house come out to about $650/month. It is a bit of a stretch, but I won't meet a girl where I am living now. Current job is opening a new location in this city and would take me.

My arguments

1. Rent. It is less stress and is easily doable in 3 months when they open the new location. Bike storage would be an issue. I don't lock my bikes on the street.

2. Buy. 2 neighborhoods have been gentrified in the last 5 years which tripled the land value. I would need a 2nd job for the whole year to save up a proper down payment. It would provide the work space I want. If I get promoted I would be working 50-60 hours a week so little time for home maintenance and improvement.

I'm 26 and a mental health train wreck.
I have a partner, I am a parent, and I am a total mess.
I barely function, hardly leave the house, and when I do it always turns into an anxiety fueled mess.
I have tried medications and just ended up being a doped up zombie.
I'm off meds and I'm a crying, shaking mess.
All my counsellor suggests is meditation, but for someone with so much trauma it is very difficult and distressing to be alone with oneself and thoughts.
I know my life has definitely been worse; I'm not a drunk anymore, but every morning I wake up and my chest is already aching from anxiety,
I dont know how much longer I can continue to live like this.

Speaking of niches and hipsters, will geek ever become niche again?

Now at 26, I have a bit of extra money and time to spend on gaming, geek tat, anime etc and know where cons are, it's suddenly gone mainstream (well since 2010 or something).

I mean, I finally go to a couple of these cons and find it packed with normies. /fit/ girls (and guys) walking around in cosplay and they're not even those booth babes. I visited comic book store and it was basically populated by the alt and hipster crowd.

What happened to the uncool kids?

It's like they've all formed they're social circles and disappeared.

I would do like other anon said, move out even in a shit place, the environment you're in right now is toxic and just getting out of there is going to help
even if move another cheaper city and find a different job
living in a shit apartment and shit neighborhood doesn't mean a shit life, there can cool people there too, and perhaps make friends

Marriage gets boring, it's normal. At least that's how my older brother tells me. You guys need to keep your relationship alive. Get out of your comfort zone and try to spark something within you. Try to remember and feel why you fell in love with each other in the first place.

I'm 30 and I'm still not over my ex from a few years ago

Thing is she was the first and only girl that I ever thought I would marry, the first one that I thought was my soulmate

It just feels like...I don't know how to describe it

I know I'm only 30, but it feels like I'm too old for the crazy, passionate, head over heels love that I want in a relationship

It feels like past 30 everyone just has this unbridgeable gap between themselves and other people

Like no matter how much I love someone new now, there will always be that gap between us because we didn't meet each other until so late in our lives, and nothing we ever do will ever close that gap. No lover I meet now will ever be as close to me as a lover I could have had in my twenties and teens. No friend I ever meet now will ever be as close to me as the friends I made when I was younger.

I don't know if this is true or if it's just me

>>17926023
It's not impossible, but extremely difficult to do, even with someone to help you.

I would basically need someone to follow me around and counter every single one of my negative thoughts with a positive. I've been thinking negatively for so long it's automatic. I don't even have to think about thinking negative, it just happens.

Basically when adults say, "you keep making that face, it'll get stuck like that," they're right. Only this is mental. There may be physical aspects, but it's almost completely mental.

Do you want kids if this goes long term? Better make sure before you become the step-dad. That's my opinion anyway. I don't want to be raising someone else's kid because the girl hooked up with the wrong guy. Classic evolutionary tactic.

Forestry.

As long as I'm going to spend half my waking life at work, I'd like to be outside, in nature, and active. I work an office job now and I can't stand it. It even pays well for a guy with no education, but I just can't stand the office atmosphere.

Plus forestry has one of the highest rates of employment after graduation, which is great. There are endless forestry dept or interior dept jobs in every state, and on the federal level, plus timber companies galore. They all require applicants with degrees in forestry.

The age gap isn't that bad really, I just don't relate to the petty social drama that consumes the minds of most of them. I've grown out of drama and partying, I'm not big on social media, and I feel aloof from the people who see class as a necessary hindrance to the continuation of their college fun.

I've done plenty of partying in the past (hence I'm 27 years old and in CC) and I've just kinda grown out of it. They're all in the throes of that LIT PARTY LIFESTYLE

26.

I've been talking about starting trying dating around friends (kv). But I'm starting to realise that maybe I don't want a girlfriend after all.

After all, once I finish masturbating I usually don't feel the desire for a gf. It makes me think I purely want the physical thing and not a relationship.
>>
>>17930788
you don't magically become unable to have a relationship once you reach a certain age, if you don't want one you don't want one, trying to force it because you're "supposed to" is an exercise in misery
>>
>>17930825

But I do want to be intimate with someone fairly young; I worry that I'm gonna miss out if I only get round to having sex in my late thirties or something, and will have to settle for middle aged women.

That, and I realise that if I'm not doing anything now then what am I going to be like, taking my first steps into relationships when I'm nearing my forties? Making the dumb mistakes that other people made when they were teenagers? Because you can bet I will make those mistakes, age is not making me any wiser.
>>

>age is not making me any wiser.
that's because experience is what makes you wiser
you're never too old to try something new

>>
>>17930868

Maybe, but being old doesn't make things any easier; in fact it makes them harder. I doubt there would be that many young women who would be okay with a nervous and inexperienced thirty something/forty something guy.

Anyway, the key problem is that I'm lazy and relationships seem like way too much work.
>>

>the key problem is that I'm lazy and relationships seem like way too much work.
at least you've identified the problem
>>
>>17930911

Yeah, but I've known about it for years. Hasn't changed anything though.

Only slightly related: I used to really enjoy drawing, I went into art subjects at school as did paintings and such. I wasn't improving much though after a few years, so I asked about online. It turns out that to improve I would have needed to basically relearn drawing from basic principles.

So I stopped drawing and aside from the occasionally doodle on a post it note I haven't done it since. I know the things I need to do to solve my problem, but they take effort and I'm not willing to spare it.

The only thing I consistently get up to nowadays outside of work is videogames.
>>
>>17930839
>will have to settle for middle aged women.

That's a pretty shallow thought. Actually a very shallow thought.

I've been having similar thoughts as I sail through my 20s never having being laid or a gf.

It seems like everybody in my age range is fucking constantly. I get to hear regardless of where I am.

I can't even lower my standards since there is literally nothing to lower it too. All the ugly/plain girls have settled into relationships. It's just basically 7+/10s.
>>
>>17921765
I would like to threaten a man like that and then he grabs my pussy, pushes me down and ties me up like in the picture and fucks all my holes asking me what i just told him but I cant talk with his dick in my mouth and 2 dildos fucking in ass and pussy

>>17922034
I don't get that "prime" thing. Most 18-22 year old girls look like awkward children, nowhere near like the one in the picture. She could easily be 30, I'm 32 and look younger. It maybe depends on a country but in Northern Europe where I live many girls have their first period at the age of 14-15 and look like children many years after. 25year old girls look super young if you are not picking up overtanned club bimbos but more modest types.

Just adding, most real 18-25 year olds look something like that, I would say it is definitely pre-prime. But my information comes from the university where everyone didn't get in and from the time where students didn't have any money for fake tans and clubbing.

Didn't mean to come off as a troll there.

Anyways reading through this thread things feel a bit more reassuring. I try not to think about the relationship stuff becuase I have failed to hold a decent job since graduating college. I really want the money and to move out of my parents house. I really want to get out of my retail job but I just haven't had any luck and now that I have been forced to buy insurance I don't know how I am going to survive. I don't even qualify for the subsidy from Obama care.

I won't argue there man, I am very shallow as it happens; as I said before, I'm not really interested in the relationship side of having a gf as much as the intimacy side of things.

I'm 29 and turning 30 this year and yet I'm still having such a hard time making friends. I feel I can't relate to a lot of the people my age, especially the women (fyi, I'm also a woman). Most of the women I know already have three or four kids and married and all they really talk about are the "cute" little shenanigan stories their little monsters get into, brag about their husbands, or brag about some family gatherings or getaways.

And as for the men, while I do have a little more in common with them (if the men lean more towards their interest of vidya games or anime), it's always feel like deep down, they're more focus on trying to have some sort of romantic or sexual relationship with me than friendship despite that I'm involved with someone.

I'm fine with chatting with my love interest and spending time with him, but I would be nice to spend time with others than JUST him, sometimes. I've attempted going to bars but they've failed and the cafes in my town are mostly filled with tumblrlinas, hardcore bronies, or SJWs. I just wish I could find a group of people that has a nice happy medium.
>>
Hi /adv/ I have a problem, I am 28 and don't have any friends. I know a lot of people through work and several from my apartment complex but they are all such shallow people that I can't stand being with them. When we're together at work all they ever want to talk about is trite stuff like what they did the previous weekend or some bullshit about how their car broke down, or they just try to interrogate me about the same sorts of topics. Sometimes they invite me out for food and drinks, or to gatherings at their houses. I can tell they're just doing it to try to get in my pants, even the ones that are happily married (disgusting!). I've had several boyfriends but I just can't keep them, there's always something wrong with them that forces me to bail out while I have the chance. I just want to spend time with other people that are as smart, attractive, pleasant, and easy-going as me, without having to pretend that I'm going to let them fuck me later.

tl;dr how do I make friends post-university?

I'm having trouble cumming during sex, the last 3 hookers I've had I've fucked for a good hour or two and I havent cum. Last escort I didn't even masturbate that day, fucked her for ~2 hours, nothing.
Any similar experiences? Im wondering if it is because of all the effort I put in during sex, but even during bjs, or when Im on my back I dont bust. I only masturbate about once a day, and the not cumming doesnt happen all the time suring sex, but its about 70/30 (70 not cumming)

Doubt the question deserves its an own thread and I bet my chance to find someone who can answer it here is the highest...

Does anyone have experience with WritersDomain and the likes where you get paid for writing content? It sounds too good to be true, just 3-4k words a day would guarantee me comfy life even at the lowest rate, so what's the catch? Are the expectations for the quality of the writing very high? Or does one simply rarely get enough request to make it work as a full time job? Anything else I am missing?

26yo/m

i wanted to make a new thread but maybe i'm better off in here with same-aged people around me.

does anyone of you ever feel like you should be doing something else than what you currently do?
i live alone, was unemployed for a while after i left my previous job, found a new job 2 months ago which i am very greatful for.
after coming home i usually take a shower and surf the web a bit, make some music or play some ps4. when it's around dinner time i usually swich on some tv shows i wanna binge watch or actively listen to music on my hifi/headphones.

sometimes, like today i don't really feel like being productive when watching some shows and the thinking about what else i should/could be doing instead dampens the fun and relaxationfrom whatever i am doing.
i'm not always in a creative mood for making music or doing stuff on the pc i k ow that, so why do i feel bad doing nothing?


hope it's kinda understandable what i mean

wanna add i got one best friend and 2 good friends which i see here and there. 2 have a gf and the other one is a old friend i got in touch with back again recently so no time to meet up more often.

i spend most of the time at home, i eat out every weekend to "socialize" a bit but without someone else it's not that cool. i'd love to share my life with someone, hopefully i will be able to do that sometime in the future.
i don't feel bad living on my own, as an introvert it's just how i roll - my mind is the only thing trying to talk bad into me
>>
>>17934845
I'm pretty similar, I've had lot of times where I simply didn't cum from wearing condom +first time with girl

I just had my proper experience with a hooker couple of days ago, and even though I took a blue pill, I got pretty easily aroused and ended up cumming a bit too fast (so much that I even got time for a round 2)

which got me thinking, how bad is it to do with hookers?
I'm on vacation and was really craving to have a good time, found the girl online
she was a natural beauty and very sweet girl, overall a pretty good experience

and ps: its okay to get a few days without jerking off, I'm actually gonna make a objective to space them out

I have a problem with sleeping.

Right now it's 23:30, and if I go to bed now, I'm not sure if I will wake up at 7:00 like I have to.

Today, I woke up naturally at 5:30 but I still half-slept until 12:00.

The only reason this hasn't fucked up my life so far is because I stay up all night when it is very important to be on time the next day.

This is one of the reasons I'm very suicidal... Idk if I can deal with this

That's entirely up to you bro. Make the best of your time. Always be improving and moving forward, and realize life isn't so bad despite the hang ups. There's people out there who have it a lot worse than you anyway. So bad things aren't the end of the world, they're learning experiences.

About to hit 31 soon.

About the only thing I don't have that I want is a good relationship. But I'm at the point where I'm not longer beating myself up for not having one. We put so much emphasis on our lives to try to find someone it's really mentally damaging. It's absolutely horrible what we do to ourselves just because we can't find someone.

So yeah, doing okay at 30. Just enjoying myself for now.

27 fem here.
I got a crazy chance to start over at college- community college to transfer. I never thought I'd be able to go to college but now that I can I want to go all the way until I get a PHD. What should I major in? I plan on starting an advertising agency in the future, so I'm not really looking for a job, but maybe I should try to get a a degree that I could fall back on for a job just in case?
What do you guys think?

Now that I'm older I feel like I can understand and learn anything at all ^^
>>
>>17938018
PhD's are essentially worthless. If you don't want to be in debt your whole life, you need to go engineering, compsci, business, or Healthcare related. Don't fall for the "muh college degree" meme
>>
>>17938018
DESU get married and have kids fuck off with the PHD shit, it is virtue signaling and totally worthless
>>
>>17938045
Yeah, I'm highly against the college degree meme myself.

This is just for ego's sake of being called a dr.
I don't mind being in debt my whole life. I also don't need it to get a job, I plan on being an entrepreneur both in and out of college.

I guess a better way to word it would be if you oldfags had to go back to college what would you major in? If debt isn't an issue.
>>
>>17938018
College should only be treated as a means to an end. It's not like in our parents' day when simply going to college was a valued accomplishment in and of itself. It's a very real investment of time and money that you really shouldn't undertake without a very clear goal in mind that requires you getting a college education to achieve.

Fact is, most jobs you can get into without going to college for it. Yes, you absolutely need to go to college to be a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, etc. (No one is going to let you operate on them, represent them in a court of law, or build a bridge for them because you swear you taught yourself) But most everything else you're better just going out there and trying your hand and it, gaining experience, and building connections.

You want to start an advertising agency? Start doing freelance copywriting, build a portfolio, and work your way into an agency where you can learn the profession.

I know we've all been raised on the "go to college" meme, but that's because we were told it by our parents because it was true for them.

I'm afraid of birthing and I'm afraid of losing my money in a divorce so I'm against marriage for myself. Got a nice bf though, def long term, we're both paranoid of divorce so we don't wanna get married we'll just be bfgf forever unless one of us has to testify in court against each other or insurance or something
>>
>>17938079
right, I already have a business, I don't think that going to college will help me with my business at all. I'm just going for fun and to have a dr on my checks.
>>
>>17938079
>You want to start an advertising agency? Start doing freelance copywriting, build a portfolio, and work your way into an agency where you can learn the profession.

I don't know where you live, guy, but as someone who DOES work in the ad industry, and has for the last 10 years, you need an education. The only people who can come in without a degree are salespeople with years of sales experience under their belt.

So if you want to join the marketing world, you better get a sales job now, and 5 years down the road if you're successful at closing, you can join the industry as an account manager. aka a sales person.

Or if you're innately talented at graphic design and have taught yourself how to build websites, you can also come into the industry without a degree. But you better have great networks, because LOL there are like 2 jobs available in the country.
>>
>>17938093
I worked in a small ad agency writing copy for luxury apartment complexes for a few years out of high school based on work I had done on my high school newspaper and for summer employers. I think it depends on what level you're looking to start at and what kind of company.

I wanna say it sounds like you don't have real confidence in your relationship with your bf BUT with divorces being commonplace now I don't blame you.
