    Ah, I never thought of it like that. It's an 'I'm not a slut' diversion for people she knows (like me) who happen to stumble across the profile. Also acts as something of a beta male filter for those who take it literally and attempt to 'court' her in the old fashioned way.

    Had dinner with a bunch of ex-colleagues earlier in the week.
    One of them is a girl who just turned 30 who I've known for a decade or so. Used to work with her, she's good at her job, not a bullshitter or anything. She's still at the place where we used to work where the stress levels are constantly high, has been promoted and is being exposed to more unrealistic expectations and greater amounts of corporate hell than ever. I remember what it was like in that environment, constantly on a knife edge as the deadlines were so tight, projects in constant chaos, trying to do several things at once ect...really draining. I got out at 28 because I knew I didn't want to spend the rest of my life in that environment.
    But because she's able to deal with it, she's being given a big pile of shit to look after and is constantly stressed and I get the impression it's starting to wear thin on her. She's 30 single and childless, not earning enough that she'll be able to retire early or anything so it'll be at least another 30 years of this shit. If she saves hard for a couple of years she will be able to afford the mortgage on a small house. She's had a load of beta orbiters over the last decade and has turned down a couple of blokes who hit on her in the company (which is fair enough as they were both kinda sad sacks) and is on Tinder with the obligatory picures in tight dresses showing plenty of leg. She doesn't talk about her dating life but I get the impression it's mostly for validation and she's not actually going on many dates.
    She mentioned a while back to me that she'd never want to give up work and will adopt if she doesn't find someone good enough by the time she's in her mid 30's. As I talked to my friends the other night and remembered myself what it was like working in that environment, I just thought to myself "is this life really better than having a couple of kids and being a stay at home mum or being a mum with a low stress or part time job?". The thing about chronically stressful environments is that it's only really worthwhile if you're earning a fortune, or if you are doing something that you can really believe in making that sacrifice for (e.g. a surgeon saving people's lives every day), as opposed to running a bunch of IT systems for a big multinational who are making your life hell by being stingy and not employing enough people.
    Not calling her deluded, or a scrapper, she'll be able to lock down a husband quickly if she settles for a nice beta, but it just made me think about the whole corporate career thing, and how it's not necessarily the best way to spend a life if you can find another way to get by.

    Yeah the chances are these bullies aren't skilled fighters so he'll win easily if there's no major weight difference.
    As another poster said, target them separately when they're alone if need be.
    Bullying carrys on throughout your life in various forms if you dont learn to stand up for yourself. I look back at my own school days and if I could go back there's a couple of noses id have broken and I'd be a better person for it now.

    Well I've got 11 days in a row off from tomorrow - and I'm very happy not to be flying anywhere.
    Apparently the weather's meant to be good next week so I'll be going for a cycle every morning, then spending the rest of my days gaming, reading, playing my guitars ect... bliss.
    I've taken some wonderful holidays over the years, but I can't help but wonder if those who are obsessed with constantly traveling do so because they haven't set up a satisfactory home life or don't have enough interests and hobbies.

    Get him a few boxing lessons until he knows how to effectivley throw a punch.
    I'm being completely serious.
    This will set him up for a better life than having to get the teachers in to protect him.

    As I stated earlier in the thread I was bullied for being small so considered an easy target
    I decided to fight back, but not in school and not fairly. One night I ambushed the worst bully in an alley from behind with a cricket bat. I gained a reputation for being easy to beat up but at a cost.
    Bully me and you'd not go out at night and feel safe until I got you back.
    I lived peacefully on that reputation for the rest of my schooldays ( and a few years afterwards).

    If the current trajectory continues, the standard response to a Beta Bucks husband who finds his wife cheating will probably be: "you're gonna have to put up with it if you don't wanna be financially ruined and not be able to see your kids". Covert cuck husbands!
