So now that you understand I’m a fully functioning adult with a good relationship with my parents, the explanation has to be that I’m uneducated. But I’m not. I’m not uneducated by societal standards or whatever subjective standards you can come up with. I graduated from San Diego State with a degree in English. I know it’s not Harvard or a degree in physics, but it is higher education. On top of that, I grew up in a large family of intellectuals. Artists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and so on.
This meant that in order to even take part in discussions growing up I needed to be well versed in things like religion, politics, history, philosophy, sociology and so on. Also, as I stated before, I took an interest in psychology growing up and even took multiple psych courses in college just out of general interest. While my articles may not be based on the scientific method, they come from a wealth of knowledge about the human condition I’ve absorbed over the years as well as my own life experience.
Now, since I’m educated, have a good relationship with my parents and I live on my own, it must mean that I’m a virgin or I rarely ever get laid. This is used as an attempt to show my views stem from being rejected by women. I lost my virginity at 17 as I lasted a few pathetic strokes at a park around the corner from my house. As for the rarely getting laid part, it doesn’t matter how often I get laid, it’s never enough. I’m by no means a ladies man and I’m average looking, so the odds of me getting laid aren’t any better than the next man at the craps table. The difference is, I roll the dice a hell of a lot more than most men. I have hot streaks and dry spells but I’m certainly not universally rebuffed by the female population. I’ve had one night stands, girlfriends, booty calls, dated women in open relationships and countless other types of sexual endeavors. I’ve pleased some of them but I’ve undoubtedly disappointed a majority.
If I’m not not a virgin and I get laid from time to time, and I’m educated, live on my own, have a good relationship with my parents and was raised well, the reason I see things the way I do must be due to the fact I’m lonely. This is an attempt to say that I’m rejected by society as a whole which makes anything I say inaccurate. No friends. No sex. No family. No opinions. Now, loneliness is a complex thing. A few years ago I was ghost writing a self help book on male friendship. This process involved a lot of interactions with the people who hired me to get the message they wanted on paper. At one point, one of the guys asked me if I was lonely, to which I explained we all are. We can only ever be fractions of ourselves at any given time which means you need to have a well balanced life in order to fill the various voids.
This means you need to have a good social life with close friends and various acquaintances, professional or intellectual relationships, family relationships, emotional relationships, as well as alone time. Some of these come in and out of balance throughout life but as a whole I’ve always been able to manage a good balance, Bachelor parties, guys trips, lunches, dinners, drinks, BBQs, birthdays, weddings and all those types of things fill up my schedule on a regular basis. I’m an extrovert/introvert which means I can extend myself too far when it comes to parties, and after that I need to get the fuck away from people.
