How to Avoid a Midlife Crisis/What’s Getting Old Like for a Man?

To a point, you’re only as old as the choices you make. GladiatorGannon explains:

“Don’t be ordinary. The ordinary guy is brainwashed into thinking that he HAS to get married and have kids much younger than he needs to. This is the woman’s schedule, that is her emergency, not yours, and following her timetable throws away some of your biggest gifts and advantages. 15-25, women enjoy massive advantages dating. 25-30, it evens out, and from then on is strongly in your favor. If they conjob you into committing before you hit your peak, your best years are taken from you.

“The average 38 year old is a broken man because he was poured EVERYTHING he has into his marriage and his kids. Every time he wants to do something cool and interesting for himself, and develop himself (gym or school or whatever), he asks himself if he is going to do something for himself, or something for his kids, and chooses the kids. This is natural…the race to make it happen so early is not. He feels empty because he IS empty – he has poured EVERYTHING he has into other people.

“Let me tell you something from experience – if you start lifting hard at 18, and keep doing it till 38, you’ll be fucking huge and strong. If you keep doing martial arts, you’ll develop amazing skills, and you’ll be that cool kick ass guy at the gym that everyone looks up to. If you feel like going out, you don’t have to hang out with you married 30 something buddies, you can go out with young ass kicking MMA fighters that look up to you and talk you up everywhere you go.

“For the most part, years don’t make you old, kids and marriage make you old. And you don’t have to do that till the years are already making you old.

    Gannon dropping knowledge all over the Internet. Good to see you in this new venue.

    Listen to this guy people. I can vouch that he speaks from experience. Dropping truth.

    Very true. Girl I am seeing says that her friends at work say that when guys get older they start dressing better and working out, etc. Basically mid-life crisis thing. So I ask her: what should I be doing instead? She had no answer because the answer is to serve women.

    He feels empty b/c he’s doing the family thing wrong. He’s not being the patriarch he’s being mommy #2. The woman’s job is to put in most of the leg work of raising kids.

    It’s no wonder the man feels empty when he takes on the role of being a man and woman by both going to work and taking care of the kids to the same degree the woman should.

    Family life will only make you feel shitty if you do the faggy new age idea of what a father should do/be. Marry the right girl that’ll stay home and maybe work part-time when the kids are all in school. Don’t be the feminist bitch-boy and do family life the proper traditional way.

    If done right you will surely have time for gym and other hobbies. And when one of the boys are old enough you can even include him in your hobbies for father-son time, killing two birds with one stone.
