One of my freelancers recently had an argument with their girlfriend. I have never had one, because I suck, but I have in-depth experience in life-destroying relationships. Before the age of 26, near every one of my friendships had gloriously collapsed. I was, as you can imagine, a psychological mess. The Otaku Apologist is often times not a “mask”, but my real, messed-up inner self given flesh. The green mask are my guts turned inside out.
After dedicating my life to the world of business, I have had little drama in my relationships. Based on my losses and successes, my advice to this guy was simple. Bitches are not rocket science:
Emphasize investment into things you cannot lose.
Invest into yourself: your looks, talents, knowledge, social skills, etc.
Diversify risk: find more nice people to be with. (but don’t cheat on her)
Only invest time into relations that enrich you with information, useful skills, good feelings, and other assets.
De-invest emotionally from relations that drain your emotions and/or money. Take distance, but don’t cut anyone off but in the most extreme circumstances.
Observe for patterns. If you’re getting into emotionally draining fights constantly, either you, or her, is a total bitch. You can’t be with someone, to cure their past traumas. Quit that shit, to preserve the sanity of you both.
Never all-in on a relationship. People leave, and people die.
When you are not an emofaggot smoking ruin of a man, you will be desired in the dating market by the normal, smart, fun ladies. First priority is to maintain and cultivate your own awesomeness that attracts the pussy. Her happiness comes second.
