Hey everyone,

I, Lithium, commit to working on my goals and taking myself seriously.


I'm 24, live in Germany and had a moment of clarity.
I found this site in June through some posts of Andy on TRP. I can say that I do not fully share the negativity Andy has towards that subreddit, but I do agree that 90% of the content there is horseshit and just unproductive hate. This site looks much, much better.

the negativity Andy has towards that subreddit
I have a love-hate relationship with TRP. I love TRP because it saved me from misery, and was the catalyst for a lot of my changes. And I dislike TRP because there's a lot of negativity - I've talked a bit about it here. And lately TRP/reddit in general has been pretty fucked-up towards me (which is kind of what you expect when you start sharing content and being vulnerable). You haven't been the target of hate - called a rapist, told the girls you bang are 4's at best, told you deserved to be in the abusive relationships you were in, etc (yeah, the TRP/seduction subreddits have thrown all of that at me). It's much different when it's directed AT you - there's a weird natural human response where you feel like you're being directly "attacked" when a bunch of people criticize you. Doubly-so when their intention is to actually hurt you.

I plan on writing an article "My Love-Hate Relationship with TRP" at some point. I love TRP as much as I hate it. TRP saved my life, but jesus christ, they've also been absolute evil cunts at times.

Welcome to the forums though! Sounds like you're already massively successful - 20kg is fucking insane, man. I lost 35kg in total, so I know how insane 20kg is.

Coding - you'll find there's a bunch of hobbiest and professional coders here (including myself - a hobbiest).

I recommend making girls the main priority, and then handle career second. I talk a bit about goals in my "the slight edge" article:

Also, you should know that once you lose the weight you're going to be a very good looking dude. You have a nice face shape, great smile and teeth. Just keep on track!
I totally agree. Lots of potential there lookswise and he does seem to be a smart guy. @Lithium if you just keep going after your goals, you life will completely change in the next year. But I think you already realized that. Going from 105kg to 85kg is already quite an accomplishment.
2020 goals:
  • $50,000 in annual revenue - done, new goal $100,000
  • get 5 professional photos for online dating
  • cut down to 75kg
  • finish 30 books/audiobooks

After 4 years of hardcore video game addiction I stopped completely. In those 4 years, I had gained 30kg of fat and lost any hunger for life as well as any semblance of personality.
Similar, used to game heavily but significantly dropped my playtime now. Who knew gaming can be a bitch.

After the breakup I was super depressed.
Ngl I also stopped 6 months after breaking up with my ex. Didn't expect to be depressed for quite a while back then, too. We're similar in our weight loss and getting laid goals. Frustratingly, I am also skinny fat; it just doesn't show in my profile pic. But like they said, I can also see you'll look fine once you start losing body fat

I'd like to see you make progress in your goals, and let's crush our goals together!

Hi guys, 35 y/o newbie here from Australia. Short story is I was married for around 10 years, supported my wife to reach her goals (finishing uni, big wedding, buy a house etc) and now that she has a sweet job and I left my job to study at uni I'm suddenly not good enough for her (familiar story right). I know now its totally my own fault for not picking the right woman and spending my life putting others needs before my own.

So I've been single for a few months now, living in my own apartment close to uni. As you can imagine, the dating world is completely alien to me compared to how it was when I met my ex-wife (you had to actually go out and get plastered enough for the Dutch courage to work its magic xD ) I've been focusing on bettering myself for the last few months (don't plan to stop), studying hard, hitting the gym 6 days a week, being consistent with my diet etc and reaching out to friends to increase my social circle. I've managed to shred a fair bit of fat from the "dad bod" that I had acquired, and starting to tone up a fair bit. Getting more stylish clothes (skinny denim, bomber jackets etc, white sneakers or brown chukka boots is my kinda style).

Played with Tinder very briefly, got discouraged by the lack of interest I got on there and deleted it after a couple of days (I know now that my profile just really really sucked).
I found the link to the tinder guide via the red pill reddit and basically said "HALLELUJAH" while I was reading it word for word because it was exactly the kind of help that I need right now.

Anyway, my obvious goals are to work on own life goals, study hard, increase my social circle and of course get laid a tonne so that I feel like some kind of human being.

oh yeah

"I, skankhunt42, commit to working on my goals and taking myself seriously." (hope you guys appreciate south park haha)

Apologies for the crappy selfie avatar, I will fix it at some point.

As you've said, biggest thing for you right now is losing weight, but also to find mental stability. Just know that your old self will continue to rear it's ugly head for some time. Feelings for your ex will be something that will also take a long time to completely heal.

I would suggest starting a daily log on here to hold yourself accountable. Make a small post everyday, incremental gains.
Yeah, my old me has shown its face again and again, but so far I have been able to deal with it pretty well. Meditation and therapy helps I guess. I've actually written a diary since March, but I might just do that daily log on top of that. Sounds good.

Hell yes, let's do that!

Also it's kinda reassuring to hear that I have the potential to look good. Usually (without pics) you read online that Indian guys can't do shit. But I've never been discouraged by that. Reality never looked particularly blackpill to me.

Whoever said that can kiss my ass. Don't let that get to you because I have huge respect for Indians. They're very techy, and their tech tutorials have helped me pass my certain engineering subjects with flying colors. Not to mention, you guys are, like, a billion in your home country, and Indians are actually flagged as one of the biggest migrants (at least in the US and Canada). That means there's brutal competition for such spots like local Indian unis, green cards, and international student placements specifically for Indians. AFAIK, if you made it as a migrant/ got to a top university in India, you're cream of the crop already.

Not to mention, I have seen really good looking Indian guys, too. Again, welcome.

From divorced guy to divorced guy, let’s kick some ass. Having your life upended can be a blessing in disguise as I’m finding out.

Thanks brother. I know what you mean, at first I was devastated and thought my life was over. Now I realise that us men only get better with age as long as we keep working on ourselves. One day our wives will regret their decision, but we'll be way too successful to even care.

Hi everyone. My name's Phil, I'm a 27 year old from Canada.

I found this forum from TRP and really like the energy - its positive and proactive. First forum account I've made since I was like 14. Looking forward to getting to know the community.

Got laid off from out of town camp work due to corona, and just ended a year long dead end relationship. I'm tired of the way things are. I've done this often, falling in with girls that are just there rather than being proactive and taking initiative to find women that are exciting. I need to take my sex life more seriously.

My main goal for the remainder of 2020 is to get laid; aiming for 6 more by the end of the year.

Additionally I have been looking for a gym that will accept me and once I do I intend to work towards a 2 plate bench and a body weight of 200 lbs (185 currently).

I, Phil, commit to working on my goals and taking myself seriously.

33 from France.
I want to get a girlfriend (sounds cliche but that's about the only thing I need right now)
Currently using dating apps cause I find it kinda hard to meet people with masks in bars and whatnot.

Current short term goals:
- drop to 68 kg (I'm at 71 kg) IE: lower my body fat % (I should be around 14 ish % atm)
- make some better pics since I don't have many matches with them
- get some dates and see what I can achieve from them (lays and experience at least)

@Hyunckel Welcome to the forum. Why do you "need" a girlfriend?
I used the wrong term, it's not a need per se, but the last thing I'm technically missing in my life atm.

I used to ignore it altogether, focusing on my job and friends, getting a driver's licence and a car...

Now that all of that has been taken care of, I can (even though admittedly I shouldn't have postponed it till now) focus on this matter with my full forces ;)

I didn't have that much trouble during my twenties when I worked at a MacDonald's and had plenty of college friends, nowadays I don't have many job-related opportunies to encounter girls and online dating is 95% looks and 5% banter it seems now (I've just come to realise it recently).

I guess I need to work on my looks and/or pictures. I shall take a glimpse at people's opinions later on once I'm done reading somes articles here.

tell us what your goals are, what you want to achieve, and make a commitment to improving yourself
In the short term (next 6 months), I'm mostly just looking to get back in shape and start dating. I've always had a bit of a complex about never being good enough, so I always tried to procrastinate on starting dating because maybe I would be good enough in a few years. Well, I'm done pushing it off. I'm not good enough, and I never will be. I'm not in very good shape, but I'm back on a consistent workout routine that I'll re-evaluate in a month or two, and I'm taking a look at my diet to start getting leaner. I'm mostly concerned with establishing healthy habits at the moment, as well as establishing a presence on Tinder as well as some kind of Social Media presence on Instagram or Facebook.
