>>32260208 I think they could, yes. Check that no-walk routine on madbarz, that one always makes me sore for a day
>I think im in love with the younger sister of one of my best friends. But he already told me me and my other friends to not hang out with her and don't text her. I text her quite a lot and I think maybe she likes me too. Wat do?
I got hit on by a gay dude today and it was really awkward
The faggot told me he had a crush on me and I was extremely taken aback by it and it made me feel dirty and violated I didn't even know the guy was gay until he said he had a crush on me If it wouldn't land me in prison I would've beaten him to a pulp right there
>>32260367 Just nut in her anyway, when she gets hep b accuse her of cheating I generally plateau on my bench at around 80kg. I weigh 83kg @ 6' tall and am gaining weight, what else can I do to push through it?
>>32260385 Press your network for any connections. This is no time to be shy. Have your parents, friends etc. ask around for anybody who might be hiring. A low-paying job peripherally related to something you might be interested in is all you need to get started.
>>32259643 Drop weight, increase reps >>32259814 Keep working hard anon >>32259991 Get a gf >>32260084 Who gives a fuck? If women think your gay, its easier to get into their pants. >>32260133 Lube and dildos >Checked >>32260151 Kill yourself >>32260191 Stop watching porn, shit fucks with your brain, man >>32260198 Go to the library right now. Do not bring your laptop/tablet/phone/etc. with you, only what you absolutely need to study. Stay there studying until you feel that you are confident in your ability to pass your test. Youre only 3 weeks away from being done man, dont fumble the ball at the two-yard line. >>32260208 Yes >>32260310 Stop being such an angry edgelord about gay people. Just tell him you arent into guys and move on with your life. >>32260340 David Bowie's "Space Oddity" >>32260367 Youre fucked broham. Begin hiding your assets now. It will save you in the long run. >>32260401 You werent actually violated though. At worst, you're somebodys fap fantasy.
>>32260401 You weren't though. He didnt molest you. He didnt assault you and take away your manhood or pride. He just told you he was interested in you. Sure it sucks if you dont like the person back then you gotta let em down, but think of them like a human being rather than a faggot.
>>32260482 Cause some people cant do enough to warrant adding weight, or if they do do it in the 15 rep+ range they either dont understand progressive overload or they just dont care and maybe want to do endurance training? Its anyones guess.
I guess im way too young for claiming this, but ye she's like really special. Never had so much common interests as with her. We can talk for hours man. Btw she's 18, im 18, he 19. And yes yes still the age of a kid, lets not hurr durr about that.
Can you be any more of a closeted gay? It's obvious that you've subconsciously suppressed your love for dicks deep within you, due to harsh societal pressures, and this event just made you recoil from the horrible truth in a brief moment of self loathing epiphany.
>>32262742 She has a huge vagoo, unless you got a 4inch dick i don't get how this is happening, so, big vajayjay thats what's it m80
>I have an immense sex drive, i want to fuck everything i see, i masturbate to keep me sane but its not fucking enough, i'm getting boners from the simplest things >its not like im pinning test or anything, i only do calisthenics at home >can't get laid to get rid of this need because i'm fucking ugly and have a shitty attitude
>>32259643 I have trouble concentrating on school work. I never had this problem before, just hit me like a ton of bricks a few months back. I got 2 weeks to get several assignments done, but I cannot concentrate. Ill sit down, start reading, then Ill end up masturbating or browsing /fit/. I need serious help
"Hey what are you doing after work? (nothing...) Want to join me for a drink/corndog/italianfood/walkinthepark/quickfuckinmycar ect? If she says shes busy washing her dog or whatever the fuck, then just be smooth about it and go on with your life.
>>32260465 Solid advice here. >in need of job >get shitty job in factory style bakery making fucking donuts and bread >keep applying to jobs >get interview for a decent job >manager says he is most impressed that I was working a shitty temp job while looking instead of sitting on my ass >get job
>>32263957 Be funny, be flirty, talk about shit they like and get them into a 1on1 conversation. Approach them in a non-threatening way when they're on their own and just be chill, maybe throw a compliment here or there. Talk about something real, not just the weather or whatever. Establish a connection. Then ask her to do something. Can be something innocent, can be something suggestive if you're feeling like a chekki kant and you aren't gonna be a creep about it.
Whenever she shows a sign of interest, use it to your advantage. Tease her (u mirin?), or embellish on it, or say it back to her in more clear terms to offer affirmation. Just please don't be forceful or creepy. And keep your hands the fuck off her until it's time. You'll know when that time is. If you're over excited and jittery and just RARING to get your hands on her, it isn't time, chill the fuck out, and you're probably being creepy. Just be yourself. Talk to her like a person, and be subtle about your interest.
Don't be desperate either. Make sure the moves you're putting onto her are unique to her. No blanket compliments. Be specific, but not overly pushy. It's a fine balance.
If you're a sperglord, ask your friends for some help. You talk to women, so I'm assuming you have at least one as a friend that you can be real with. Just tell her "listen I'm a huge beta faggot sperglord who has no idea how to talk to women, can we hang out some time and practice with me? Tell me if I'm being a creep or too forward or whatever? I don't know what I'm doing" And for the love of sweet load-bearing Christ in a protein scoop, do NOT try to pick her up during practice if you do this.
>Broke up with gf on good terms, asked her so pointers to be a better man in the future, turns out I was a huge shitfucker and now I feel like trash
>>32264711 No like really this fat bitch would always jump into our convis and wat nit, and the qt azn girl i wouldn't see her much but in the couple times we talked this bitch would cock block and the couple times it was me an her we would talk an talk and i never got the chance to ask for her #
>>32264785 Sounds like you are in a quarter life crisis anon. It sucks realizing what life truly is, the daily grind. Maybe take some time off and go on a vacation rather then walk away from everything. Finding a new job before you quit this one is your best bet.
Also a ton of fuckers would love to be your shoes. Go volunteer at a soup kitchen and see what the "adventitious" lifestyle looks like without your rose colored glasses.
>>32265027 I had this problem with acne before I started using some skin cream I found behind my desk.
Turned out the skin cream was fungal medication for something completely unreleated, but it helped me break my habit by having the constant cold texture as soon as I tried to pick the scabs and reopen the acne.
The acne cleared on its own with time and I no longer have the urge to pick.
>This girl and I are going to san francisco together in week. We has a 1bedroom apartment checked out and I want to fuck her. My plan is to just make a move when we're relaxing since I know she likes spontaneous things like that. What move should I make, should I just go down on her?
>>32259814 The vast majority of people are in the same boat anon. If its really bad try some piracatam or some other nootropic. Coffee and preparation help, plan your shit on a whiteboard make a list and check off each point as you go. >protip: Always refer to the marking rubric.
I've had a long-distance muslim girlfriend for over a year who I actually went to Bangladesh for a month to see. How do I tell my family and friends of my plans to move to Malaysia with her after my internship? Could be moving in 8 months and no one has a clue. I don't just wanna run away but oh God what have I done
>>32268630 If you truly love her, and your family/friends see that she really makes you happy, they should support you in doing so. You can also go on about a change of scenery too. Your family should just overall support you. I would tell your parents first over dinner but have a thought out plan like where you will live, how much savings you have, etc so they don't think you are just winging things. You need to be prepared.
Have depression, can't shake it off or be alone with my thoughts. Next week I have a new schedule, gym 6am, class at 1pm. Not sure what to do inbetween so I don't sit around and dwell on useless shit. Need to figure out a hobby or something?
>>32269026 Only problem is I will have from basically 8am-1pm to do that, I really don't want to spend 5 hours reading. I plan on studying for sure for maybe 1-2 hours but still leaves a lot of extra time. Maybe video games?
Whenever I get into a situation where I can botch out I think "would I regret not acting in the future?"
Also have a look at your mom's family for male pattern baldness, look at your uncles and ask them if they experienced any major balding between 20-30. If so there's 50% chance your fucked. The gene is testosterone activated so accept it or become a transsexual.
>Started lifting since february >getting protein shakes >bought £130 quids worth >brother's been going gym longer than me >have to share a shake bottle >Instead of 4 measured scoops of powder he heaps the shit super hard >maybe 6 scoops worth
I am 7 feet and 150 lbs, used to do cardio and bodyweight excercises back then, but got out of the rhytm when I got into uni and now I am mostly sitting on my ass. I do not want to be some big ass hulk of a man, but just feel good and fight off depression.
Well question is, where do I start? I read the sticky, but just going to the gym and getting membership seems so over the head.
>>32270429 Delete all traces of him. Take that frustration into the gym or your work. Look at the couchsurfing website for events/people wanting to try out new shit. Go on tinder. You don't need to get laid, but looking at other men and/or getting dates will up your self esteem.
>>32270511 Then try to get some distance. Yes it sucks, but every time you see him, the feels will come rushing in like weight watchers to a free cake event. Go to the gym alone, try out some stuff without him and with new people, join an activity that takes place at a set time every week, so you find yourself in a new group of people and are able to bond due to seeing them regularly.
>>32270353 Are you an official wizard then? What makes you think that you already failed? Personally I do not think that there is someone of any age who is beyond a point of no return, as long as you have a working head and a beating heart you can get shit done.
Well saddly I am in no position to pull out someone in so deep, but I can offer advice from back when I had cancer and thought it was over for me. You sure as hell need a change in perspective, meditation is praised on /fit/ for a reason, pull back from self pity, look at your situation from a more objective standpoint. What is wrong, what do you want to change, how will you get there?
You need to gain momentum anon, if you go fast and strong, problems will seem small and insignificant compared to the power of your movement. It already starts at small things, like finally writting the first word of that essay you need finished, or taking the first step in that jog.
Get on it anon, it might seem heavy, but you will see that problems are not as big as we make them out to be. And sorry for the late reply.
>>32270891 >>32270891 Then you're fine, there's a bunch of those at my gym too and no one cares. A lot of people feel uncomfortable at the gym, it's normal when you start working out. Also this >>32270924
>>32270353 Get that shit right out of your head, anon. We are ALL going to make it. If you keep focusing on improving yourself, striving every day to be a better man (and you get to decide what that means for you), even if that just means something simple like one more day in a row flossing your teeth, I guarantee you'll make it. The only way to fail is to give up.

>pic related, the story of the night I lost my virginity
>>32269864 I am going to drop the manlet meme for a bit.
I am sorry, but you've capped. If you could have afforded it there were growth hormone you could have taken in your early teens, but it's too late now.
You might only grow another two inches at this point in your life.
This is serious now- Make those stacks of money. >Ariely found that a 5'4" man would need to make $229,000 more than a 6' man to have equal appeal; a 5'6" man would need $183,000 more; a 5'10" man would need $32,000 more.
Women are shit. You need more money to impress them now. If you're gay, then you're all set.
My best plan of action is to bulk right? I'm just a bit worried starting a bulk when I'm already high body fat but I feel like anymore lifting on a deficit will just make me spin my wheels and I should focus more on putting mass. Will I look leaner if I put some muscle on anyway?
>>32271077 Keep cutting for a bit longer. Then do a slow clean bulk. Add calories in slowly eg. Add 10-20g carbs per week to what you are currently eating till you are eating 500 Cals above maintainance to let your metabolism adjust.
>>32271418 I'm not going to pretend that I know what it's like to be depressed (assuming that you actually are depressed) but not interacting isn't going to help, and getting fit will only bring improvements.
>>32271461 It's going to depend on what your schedule is like, and which you care about the most, since cardio and lifting mix like water and oil. But generally lift first and then do cardio, and very light cardio can be done on off days
UK brah, 2nd year of university doing a Math degree.
I've got an exam on Friday which I don't think I can even meet the minimum pass mark in which is 40%, should I just not show up and focus on my remaining 6 exams after and do a retake in the summer which is capped at 40%? I'll have to do well in the remaining exams to average out a decent mark.
I think I might have gotten mired today. I'm not sure but I'll take it as such. > at the blood work office or whatever you call the place where you get your blood extracted (please inform I need to know). > I give the nurse my prescription I got from the doctor(it's a routine check to see if my thyroid hormones are fine, I've got hypothyroidism) > she checks it and calls doctor > asks the doctor that if he's sure it's all supposed to be thyroid > feels good when people don't assume I have "hypothyroidism" cause I'm fat > feels good to be somewhat lean
Anyway my question is, how do I improve my social skills aside from just talking? I do talk with people but the don't want to talk to me the second time they see me, and therefore ignore. I used to not be able to leave my house but I can now atleast start a conversation. I'll admit not with girls but I'll get there eventually. Is there something I can do to improve social skills other than just talk?
>>32271702 Find a gym closet to home that way you won't have an excuse. That's what I did.
Also I'm this anon >>32271683 , >>32271713. The problem that I have with planning out topics beforehand is that I end up wasting atleast an hour of my life just talking to myself, or I forget by the time I meet someone or I'm still to nervous to think clearly and talk at the same time. When I talk to people I try to relax myself and pay attention to what they are saying. When I start thinking about what to say next, then I get too nervous.
>>32271801 Yeah but that's where the issue comes up. Since I don't know what else to say and they aren't investing into the conversation we have this awkward silence. And that's the other problem I just don't feel awkward by the same this other people feel awkward. To me it seems normal but I can see they feel awkward. Don't get me wrong I'm going to try anything to get better really, so I'll be using the tips from here. Tbh I even use PUA stuff too. As I said I'm really serious about this problem, it's inhibiting me everywhere in life.
Anyway I'm going to go to sleep now, got a test tomorrow so I'll need to well-rested.
>>32272010 you cant really do anything about it, just give it time, the only shortcut is surgery (which would be really exaggerated imo). some people say eating more collagen will help but i dont think there's proof to it. same with stretchmarks, it just takes time
Going bald is like the male equivalent of a girls tit size. We make a way bigger deal about it, while girls don't really give a fuck. And the girls who DO care are the ones you should probably stay the hell away from.
Also grow a beard, chicks love the bald head full beard look.
>>32272342 Not currently but im enrolling into college soon, I need literally any source of income that is better than clicking 1k ad's a day or begging on the street.Ive applied everywhere and have gotten 1 interview after a year of trying.
>>32272149 A big part of building your career is done through networking. From your posts, you obviously have some issues with social anxiety or confidence.
I would love to help you out, but you will only ever get good at socializing by practicing it, observing others and learning from that. Dont take yourself to seriously, and most of all remember, no one gives a shit about you or the things you say. If you fuck up, it doesnt matter, everyone fucks up every single day.
Your nervousness i creating a bad spiral in which you are nervous about failing, and in your nervousness you fail more often, and harder. This again makes you more nervous.
Don be afraid to fail, dont take yourself seriously.
As for jobs, with your education and decent grades should land you a job. They dont exactly expect engineers to be social butterflies nowadays.
>>32272325 Get in the medical field somehow. Doesn't necessary mean being a nurse or wiping ass all day.
Take a class on how to fix x-ray machines, be a janitor at a hospital, become a rep for medical supplies and sell gloves and needles to offices, go to a nursing home and be a cafeteria kitchen worker, take a class and become an EMT, apply for a company that fixes or maintains medical programs offices use for charting and insurance info.
>>32272375 If you want an entry-level/service job then everything I said applies. Make a nice resume, lie on it and make shit up if you have to, HIT THE FUCKING STREETS FOR 5 HOURS and ask to speak with the manager and give them your resume. Get at least 50 out there your first day.
Go back within a week and ask again, if you cant land a job this way you are fucking retarded. No offense.
Anyone can be a kichenhand/server whatever, so if you have no experience make up some from a random place in a different country.

>>32272089 Only read this if you want to keep your hair and not to shave or be Bruce Willis or Jason Statham:
First of all you'll need to figure out the cause. ACT FAST- this is extremely important. Go to the doc to check your skin, scalp, diet, and a blood test.
There are tons of shit that can cause hair loss, so prepare for it, but maybe you'll be lucky. Since hair loss treatment is a superbusiness you'll need to pay attention. Its not 100% guaranteed that a 70 dollar shampoo is better than a 15 dollar one. For some it works for some it doesn't. Once the cause is figured out you'll be smarter and can make another move. trying out shampoos pills etc.
HOWEVER if the cause is due to genetics you are utter fucked. Hair transplant is kinda risky since if your hair loss still not stopped there is a chance even transplanted hair will fall off, so basically you can throw out more than 1000 dollars. These hair regrowth capsules are hit or less just like shampoos and can't do anything against your genes. The last option is finasteride, if you are not scared from side effects. Caffeine, Iron, B vitamin are your friends.
I'm on the same path and there is no fucking way I'll shave. I already tried TONS of shampoos, pills are were worthless. I'll go to the doc next monday and talk about it, but I think I'll probably end up on finasteride since, that's the only thing left for me.
If the girl I'm into is in a bad mood, should I try to find out why? The thing is we barely know each other and have hardly ever exchanged a word, so it would seem kinda weird to me, but maybe I'm just autismo she smiles at me almost everytime I see her tho Also can I do farmer walks without actually walking around? my homegym is tiny
>>32272956 Ask her if she's OK. Don't say "Are you OK, you look upset", because you mine as well just be calling her ugly, and if she says "yeah" or "sure" when asked, don't be one of those guys who pushes for her to tell you what's really wrong, but yeah, try to find out why. "You're usually all smiles, just wanted to make sure everything was OK."
>farmer walks >walks >without walking
In all seriousness, you totally can. The walking works your stabilizers a little more, but you can definitely just stand there with the weight until your grip fails.
>>32273132 Prescription is the cheapest, probably will have to lie to your doctor if you're cool with that or a drug dealer. Worth though, also only use it for rec use try not to slam it for days if you do , friend started gettin addicted because of that. Adderall is godly though
>>32273132 If you live on or by a college campus it is easy, ask around.
If not go to a doctor and get it prescribed, it is not difficult to get a prescription for it. If you have any kind of insurance they will pay for it so it is probably cheaper then buying it from a dealer. Doctors hand those pills out like water.
I started to go to gym 1.5 months ago and lost around 30 pounds but every time I go there is this huge roided faggot keep laughing at me while I'm doing my shit. This and the fact that there is no one to even praise me a bit on my weight loss and it's making me lose my motivation. I keep telling myself that I'm doing this for myself and fuck people but I can't take it anymore, worst is I fucking hate people in general and can't stand conversing with one more than two minutes. Should I just fucking kill myself?
>>32273376 >wear headphones while you work out. >grow a back bone. >harness the anger he installs in you and use it as fuel for your lifts or fight crime with it. >laugh it off and try to be friendly to him, he sounds just as insecure as you... Who knows you 2 could end up being friends like in the movies.
I want to grow my hair out because I just do. But I look better with short hair and I'd pull way more pussy with a short cut. How do I reconcile bending to the will of others for the benefit of my sex life?
Stop being a beta. He probably has a small dick or some shit anon. Why else would you laugh at someone just because you have bigger muscles than them? You just started while he's been lifting for at least a year. Don't stop for such a shitty reason anon.
>I can't into casual sex never had sex with a girl I wasn't dating. I'm 25 so getting my own place is pretty much a prereq here, but once I have that, what do I do? are there alternatives to going to bars every night?
>>32274246 Ah PUA. The autistics crutch for talking to women. Why don't you faggots just go talk to girls and be interested in what they are saying? Why is it something that needs to be studied? Why don't you just enjoy human interaction?
>>32274388 Okay then >be a promiscuous whore >get some nasty uncurable STDs eventually, like warts or herpes or some shit >realize being a manwhore is not worth it because no matter how many whores you bang you will never find true happyness, because it lays in the arms of qt3.14 pure women who by the time you realize this, have already settled with their bfs/husbands >inb4 fedora tipping
>>32274388 just hit on every woman you see. doesn't matter if you want to fuck them or not. you need the practice. every. single. woman.
eventually you stop seeing them as people and start looking at them as sex dispensers to which you have to enter in the correct combination of words to gain access to. the only way to figure out what words to use is to practice alot.
>>32274794 well anon it is universally known that only fags get back injuries from lifting under any circumstances. but the solution to your problem is elementary my dear fag.
do mental training. meditate while imagining yourself lfiting, your brain can't tell the difference between what's happening in your head and what is happening in the outside world, gains will be had if you train up your ability to visualize with great attention to detail. you may also want to go to /x/ and learn some basic energy manipulation in order to speed up the healing process.
>>32271618 hover-squat just above the toilet bowl, it will make your shit come out more easily and unretained. why do you think rippetoe advocates functional strength+squats? doesn't take much to connect the dots.
How to get pec gains for someone of average height with long arms?
>>32274794 Start from scratch and build your strength up slowly. Try not to give evidence the back unnecessary work, perhaps limit your only lower back movement to deadlifts. Wear a belt maybe..? Idk I'm not exactly a lower back expert but I hope that helped anon
>>32275647 >I always feel the need to be perfect. When I do something wrong I get extreme anxiety for a few hours/days until I make up for that flaw. accept and embrace that feeling. feeling weak and vulnerable at times is only human. and if you try to distract yourself from that feeling you will only be acknowledging to yourself that it IS a huge problem that needs to be avoided at all cost, thus not only perpetuating but increasing the anxiety long term. talk to someone about your insecurities
>Inb4 muh masculinity, can't express feels other than on the internet or people will think i'm a fag well to be fair i was a victim to above reasoning for many years but talking about your feelings is essential for being a fucking human being. i may have gone a bit off topic but your post wasn't very detailed so i just made a few assumptions and hoped for the best.
>I also masturbate too much and I don't have the discipline to stop. My longest nofap lasted like, a week. use it or lose it, faggot. seriously though, i went 90 days once and it wasn't a very pleasant experience, but as they say on "leddit", your mileage may vary.
>>32273331 >no one to even praise me a bit on my weight loss and it's making me lose my motivation Don't expect to be getting compliments at the gym, everyone's there to get stronger, not to wank each other off.
I keep getting tendonitis pains in my forearms when I'm lifting heavy, how do I work around this? Everywhere says to rest and let it recover, but I don't want to lose any gains over the few weeks it takes to sort itself out.
