I certainly don't want to insult anyone; that is not my intention for making this post. I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness for many years. I teach and lead a meditation group and have taught mindfulness as well. The most salient observation I've had over the years is that both medita...

I kind of don’t. None of those are well-defined terms. I guess a better term for me would be sustainable. I can sustain changing the way my voice sounds since I hate my natural voice with a passion. I’m used to changing it, so it’s no big deal for me most of the time. I can also dress in a way wher...

If women like older guys, why is it I was told that my age is one of the reasons women don’t like me? After following this thread for some time, I'm going to suggest that it is likely because you make 'telling you the truth' so darn difficult. If they say, "Because you are acting too desperate...

What about example 3? How could cashier perceive I was questioning her in my head if I didn’t say anything out loud? EXAMPLE 3: Step a: I am desperate to have friends or a girlfriend, but I can't get them. As has been pointed out, desperation is not a good look. The best way to attract a girlfriend...

Mindfulness is part and parcel of my special interests. I believe that I am still alive as a result of my mindfulness practice. That said, listening to someone try to coach me into mindfulness is going to send me into a spiral. And, despite a daily mediation practice and over 10,000 hours on my medi...

With respect to masking. My experience has been that adapted skills born in adversity at an early age will result in a more refined compensationary self and masking. Agreed. Also, those who are more right brain dominant have superior masking skills, this is an area that has been grossly overlooked....

I have the opposite question. Why do people ghost? Ghosting is very unfair since it leaves the other person stranded not knowing what is going on. If I had to guess it is because they are unwilling to invest any more energy into the 'relationship' because they have determined it is DOA. I believe t...

The word "datable" refers to potential in the distant future. The word "right away" refers to here and now. So "datable right away" is like you are equating here and now with the potential in the distant future. And THAT is the exact concept I find insulting. [/quote] ...

Good stuff. But, there are people in the worst situations possible who can still find something to be grateful for. It doesnt fix everything, but it can give some reason to keep going. I start every morning plopping down in front of my computer and opening the Word document that is my ongoing gratit...

The logical conclusion of what you're saying is that people can and should be happy entirely unconditionally. Doesn't matter if you're poor, starving and living on the street. Doesn't matter if you're being beaten within an inch of your life on a daily basis. Doesn't matter if you suffer a debilita...

I rarely come to this sub-forum; in fact, I think it's only been once. I started a thread here on July 14th that still hasn't been responded to - so I looked for other, more well travelled sub-forums. That said, it seems sad that the only contributors to a thread, specifically about men's mental hea...
