Ad (not so bad)
I've lurked this site for a while and thought I'd intro though I've nothing much to say.
I have my own dating system.
No, no not that sort of dating, I don't do 'dating' dating. This one is calendar dating so it all began on the 11th of December 2011 and that was #Day 1 of new existential paradigm.
It was MGTOW Day, the day Mr Google got me to take my goggles off and realise that I was gaslighting myself. I found and joined MGTOW.Forums and never looked back either in anger or regret. I owe Mr 'N' a big thankyou and will always be greatful for his efforts and the efforts of those who contributed wisdom and anecdote and built upon the preceeding and following incarnations.
I have absolutely nothing to say or contribute that has not been said 1000 times already and much better.
I'm just a ghostly pseudo-monk pseudo-monking ghostily whilst trying not to spook the herd into any unecessary dramatic stampedes in my direction and its working very well, even in very busy and socially mixed environments.
Happy Independance everyone.
Welcome AD. At some point, if you want. Contribute where you think you could.
All of us have individual knowledge. Share some of that perpective.
Welcome Ad---all men have experiences and stories to add. I look forward to your commentary! Pull up a chair the beer is in the fridge.
There seems to be some kind of resemblance in your writings, to my style. Are you my doppelganger? No need to answer that it's only a rhetorical question. I was amused by the intro in a non yet not non way - Welcome.
Welcome brother! We're glad to have you here. Your contributions and experiences are always welcome. Especially if you've been MGTOW since 2011...I bet you have a lot more knowledge and wisdom than you realize.
As the saying goes, hearing it once or twice, it is a rumor, but hearing it many times, it can be accepted as fact. The problem has become far worse through the years by the silence of men, suffering quietly. The ability to have a platform and share the truth can change that, and I believe we are seeing that all around us. In my attempts to reach out and show support for that change, I have been in contact with a CEO who is now basing his companies advertisement on good fathers, and another who is no longer too afraid to have men only in advertisements for his man based company. It is the accumulation of all men who share their experiences and stories, no matter how redundant, that gives power to these men to do these things.
In short, I am saying, welcome to the jungle and feel free to share anytime.

Welcome to the site Ad.
Welcome Ad. Good to have you here. In this place you can be yourself, and most importantly you can be a MAN.

Thats the truth.
But on the matter of hearing it many times, I shocked myself with just how deaf I wanted to be.
For instance, its in the school-yard, its in your street, up 'n' down the main-drag on the weekend, its on TV, its on the radio, its in books, in Cicero, Chaucer, Shakespear....its in the pub with your mates in that its the thing that must not be spoken of...its in the ban....Shhhhhhhhh!
It couldn't be more 'in our face' if it was our own nose....and yet....
Well, it is was it was.
Damage limited and situation recovered.
Welcome Ad. Remember that he who seldom speaks is often the one that speaks with much wisdom to the most people!
