nobody mentioned having kids or starting a family. i’m talking about the basic tension inherent to all coupling and relationships: between stability/commitment and wanting to chase after every person that appeals to you sexually. do you really think the women who are proposing relationships with you stop feeling lust and attraction to other men? come on, this is the most basic act of self-denial/discipline intrinsic to building all successful relationships. this isn’t a ‘major psychological breakthrough’ you’ve had.
you kind of come across like the high-school valedictorian who has just got laid for the first time and wants to put his dick in everything. that would be funny and cute; but aren’t you nearing 35? this breathlessness and overwhelming desire to ‘prove yourself’ by getting all those notches on your bedpost seems, i don’t know … a little bit pathetic at this age? sleeping around by itself isn’t sad, per se; but there is something a little alarming in the way you phrase it: “i want deep commitment but i also still need to sleep with as many women as possible”. if you want deep companionship and enjoy spending your time around one person, perhaps ask yourself just what hole it is you’re trying to fill inside yourself with all the one night stands?
anyway. this will be of interest to you, as a polyamory-inclined young man. https://futurism.com/caroline-ellison-a … lr-account
here’s a fun sideshow about this crypto FTX meltdown. i’ve been reading a lot about the weird kooky ideology that permeates these silicon valley/crypto/tech-libertarian circles. a lot of it was ennobled with some nebulous concept of ‘Effective Altruism’. like longtermism, another fad non-philosophy on the lips of a bunch of sociopathic tech bros (read: it’s important to let us maladapt nerds with immense fortunes do exactly what we want now, as it will benefit humanity in 1000s of years when we are an intergalactic empire), this stuff really is a priceless mixture of idiotic thinking, snake oil charlatanism … and solar masses of cringe.
so basically the FTX exchange’s owner was living in a giant polycule with a bunch of other sweatlord engineers from MIT in the bahamas. sharing around some of the ugliest women i have ever seen in my entire adult life. and they’re all high on their own supply of this pseudo-scientific, ‘rationalist’ claptrap about mating. it’s weird how these nerds, from elon musk and his birthrate boosting, to dilbert and his quack theories, are so unhealthily obsessed with sex and human hierarchy, isn’t it? and even with all the money in the world, when they should be hanging out and having the time of their lives, there’s always some furrowing of the brow going on about how they’re going to ‘save the species’ (meaning people like them), with extremely whiffy eugenics in the mix. why are these people like this? even when they’re living in a tropical paradise and stealing billions of dollars to fund their lifestyles, they’re still writing manifestos about how all the world’s poor need to die and how sexual hierarchies supposedly work.https://web.archive.org/web/20190417234 … com/page/2
‘world optimisation blog: attractive traits in a man’. omg lol. WHY are these people like this?!
the last 15 years the acceptance of nerds has really got out of hand. from comedy sitcoms to comic book franchises, the nerd has become too stronk!!!! as an archetype. these people are all deeply emotionally damaged, scarred even.
