I think this is BS. Hardships bring on adulthood and becoming a man. Nowadays our society is so coddled that "becoming a man" isnt even a thing, most people will simply laugh at the concept of that, and most people never face true hardship in life which molds them. Meanwhile, they are in their 20s reading books aimed at 6 year olds in the 90s.

additionally, many of the hardships people experience are brought on themselves by a negative attitude toward life and stupid ideals. NB

women have been known to date poor as well as rich men. Being unemployed or poor sure hasn't stop a lot of guys getting pussy. It's an attitude issue more than a financial issue.
Any chance of finding like a reading book or some kind of meetup that you could join and find other people to talk about?

Of course you didn't. There's no such thing as a "normal fucking life." As much as you might want it.

I'll be 28 on the 19th. I dropped out of college. I make the same $20/hour that you do. I work in NYC, live on Long Island... in my mother's house.

In the '90s, every kids' show on TV was laced with messages that suggested if you didn't get out of your parents house by 18, you were a LOSER.

But, I've never been the suicidal type, and I take it that you aren't either...?

Work the problem.

That's a shitty roommate you've got. Don't let that guy manipulate you.

Call his bluff. If he commits suicide, if his nose piercings and Pokemon comics aren't enough to make him happy, hey... the world hasn't lost a genius.

If you want to get in shape... do it. Clock's ticking.

The thing about getting in shape is the most important part of the entire thread. The roommate I’m just gonna tell to get fucked, the money situation can be worked out, I got big Dreams for money but it will take a few years of hard work, saving, and paying off debts. But I don’t know where to start with the thing about getting in good shape, every forum I read (mainly on circlejerk and the future) tells me either starting strength or 5x5, but these are just memes. Starting strength makes you fat and 5x5 is weak as shit. I want a real program but I’m not paying for a personal trainer, I also don’t want to get injured. All my friends from growing up are fucking losers, they scoff at this shit and say it’s for meatheads while clinging onto their shitty Skyrim lore and nostalgia YouTube channels or are paralyzed by conspiracy theories so badly that they don’t do anything except sit around and get high. I hate this fucking generation.

Exercising is literally the easiest thing to do. Just go outside. Walk for twenty minutes. Then sit down and stretch. Pick up a rock. Lift it a few times. Throw it away. Repeat until you can carry bigger rock. Repeat every day.

Stop making up excuses you fatty

>always think about getting in good shape but never follow through, don’t know where to start, aimlessly scroll through YouTube fitness and /fit/, etc

You don't need a perfect routine to start training. Just go outside and walk/run a bit, then do like 50 push ups and 50 abs every day. Within one month you'll have better knowledge of your own body and movements and everything you read will start making more sense. From there you can advance to better, more advanced routines. I started training doing literally one hundred push ups everyday. It's a really shitty excercise, but it got me motivated and after that I started training more and better.
Also, I'd consider paying for training. It really isn't the same having someone who prepares your routines specially for you, and watches you over while you train, and puts pressure on you everyday. My entire life I've trained on my own, through videos and stuff. Only last year did I hire a personal trainer (he trains acrobats and dancers) and it's pretty great. It really is worth the money, at least do it a couple months till you get the discipline and knowledge.

I can relate, our lives are very different yet the feelings you describe are very similar, also going on 26, had no idea the world and my life would look like this at this point, not even overly negative or positive, just something i don't feel like i could have ever predicted or prepared for you know what i mean?
