I am no longer 'young'. But I am thin and have 0 dollars in the bank, with no debt.

That makes me wealthier than the majority of people, and better looking than most single guys my age.

When I was younger people told me I should get married soon or I would be alone and unable to find a woman later in life.

Thanks to high rates of divorce and lowered quality of competition, I am more valuable to women than I ever have been, and it just keeps getting better.

I may still be single, but these days I only sleep alone when I choose to, and if I am sick of the woman I am with it requires very little effort to replace her with a new one.

Oh and the icing on this cake is that college age women are empowered enough that they have no problem dating someone my age. Sometimes i think they are drawn to it.

So don't feel bad for us single older guys. Because we have nothing but pitty for the married folk.

Don't fall for the marriage trap even if you find a very attractive woman.

I really dislike the way most voaters see marriage. My wife is my best friend , we've been together for 14 years, have a wonderful son, and I would not be happier if I were single or just playing the field. Do what works for you, buy laying down a huge blanket statement like this is unnecessary.

I will never put my foot in that bear trap.
Life is good. I'm not gonna fuck that up.

I make it clear when I begin dating a woman that I will never marry, so if that is a deal breaker for them then they should go.

If you're not fat, this will almost always be the case.

good post, but having " 0 dollars in the bank" does not make you wealthier than most people lol

Having 0 dollars and no debt does make me wealthier than most. Most North American people live in debt and only have a positive net value if you include assets.
I have a positive value without having to sell anything. That means I am wealthier than most.

Heavy drinker here. I look better every year. Drinking doesn't make you look bad. Eating like shit WHILE drinking makes you look bad (or the drugs).

I'm just reaching this point. Drank hard since high school, entered 30s. Just now I'm starting to detect pain in some organ or two after too much hard liquor. I'm trying to taper off to standard beer, at least for 80% of my entertainment. Really I should quit entirely and just live fucking healthy.

As with everything else, moderation is key. Getting a good buzz on every day is alright. Slamming a fifth of vodka or more a day is not.

Same here. I eat small portions and very healthy, no junk or fast food, no sodas, etc. I drink plenty and stay slim and healthy.

30 years old really is the point where you can't keep abusing yourself. I gained some weight after 30 and had to make some big adjustments to get my shit together. Didn't stop partying though.

Since the obese/overweight are now beyond 70% of the population (a bit lower for the 20ish/30ish age bracket group, but only because they didnt have the chance to build up that fat yet, their alzheimer buildup rate is even higher than that of their parents though). You could basically be looking more successful, less loserish if you just go out for a walk 1 hour a day, 3 times a week, for a year. While only drinking water.

That is how easy it is to beat the competition.

Now imagine if you actually did sports, if you were into weight lifting...

Make it about 30-40 mins 4-5 times a week and that's basically owning a dog and not being a dick owner (eg: walking him). Add on a regular 1 hour 3/week workout, eating salad, steaks, and veggies instead of McBeetus and that's all it takes to be in great shape. Nothing very strenuous at all.

I went to my 30th reunion and you are correct! Don't forget about bald too. Thin with hair and you are golden.

I look great bald! It's just too much of a hassle to keep it short like that.

You can be bald and wear it well. It's the guys with thinning hair who don't know when to just shave it all off that look the worst, IMO.

Shit, I'm 25 and my friends are already losing their hair. It's nice getting complimented on mine, but even if I were bald, at least I'd still be thin. No reason to be both fat and balding when one of those things is completely within your control.

Sometimes when I see old classmates, it's shocking. I know I put on a few pounds, but JESUS some of these people have utterly blown up. The first girl I slept with has tits down to her knees and looks horrible now, when she was pretty f'ing hot back then. (A camgirl named ZoeyJames actually strongly resembles her, which is kind of rad)

The girl I was gaga over all throughout my senior year still looks great, even after a couple kids, so that was nice when I got to see her. Would still bang. It's crazy how many of these people just stuck together, married classmates, and stayed in the same towns. I GTFO and said fuck that town I am DONE.

Never drinking or doing drugs did me alright. I've been losing my hair since forever, but other than that, and a few stray gray hairs I'm doing alright.

Key word here is appear. You may appear to be more successful, but you might not be. I guess it depends on your measure of success though. If it's people's weight, then I guess you would be more successful—at least in your mind. Success, in this case, is subjective, I think. In my mind, someone is successful if they are happy with their life, and are doing/have done the things they want to do.

Thanks. I like to keep shit simple, if I can.

The sad part is that, by my definition of success, most people will never be successful, myself included. Most people will spend most of their time lining someone else's pockets, and trying to figure out how they can manage to pursue their own interests, but never really getting the chance to do so. At least here in North America anyway.

Success is measured in the first person.
