I love freedom, reading, music, and good conversation. I have lived alone for a long time and was really hoping to find a good relationship here. But I've decided to go my own way and enjoy the higher things in life.
Why give up on dating? Well, let's see...
-I neither need nor want an emotionally unstable and/or manipulative companion
-I neither need nor want a woman to lie to me and tell me she loves me (had a few do that to me, including one who later told me that she had no concept of love... yeah, that was fun)
-I neither need nor want to get married just to have her divorce me because she doesn't want to actually put in any effort
-I neither need nor want a woman to take half or more of my money and stuff
-I neither need nor want to have children just to see her take them away from me
-I neither need nor want to have a woman falsely accuse me of stuff
-I neither need nor want a woman who expects everything from me but refuses to do anything (which describes almost every woman I've ever dated)
-I neither need nor want a woman with no concept of personal responsibility
-I neither need nor want a woman telling me to "man up" whilst having no standards for herself
Who am I? I'm an intellectual, autodidact, audiophile and bibliophile. I'm an Epicurean of sorts and would rather enjoy life on my own than allow a woman to ruin it.
Oh, and for all you feminazi and SJW types screaming misogyny: I like women, I just can't stand what they've become nor do I want to get into a relationship with any woman given the current legal system and how it privileges women and hates men. Plus, so many women these days hate men yet claim to want a relationship with one of us.
I've tried quite hard to find a good woman. I have yet to find a Christian woman who actually takes to heart what the Bible tells her. Plenty of women out there demand that guys "man up" but refuse to even consider living up to any standard themselves. Why would I waste my time with those people?
So, what am I doing with my life? I'm going my own way. Facing the choice of being alone with good books or lonely with a terrible woman, I shall take the path of wisdom and knowledge. Goethe said that one must be either hammer or anvil. I know which I am and why. Which are you, and why?

I'm hoping to assemble a miniature set of at least one significant battle: the list has been narrowed down to [First] Battle of Breitenfeld, Lützen (1642), Poltava/Pultowa, Siege of Yorktown (1781) and the Battle of Talavera (1809). Bonus points if you know of at least one of them; if you actually knew more than one of them before reading this I might just have to cook something special for you. But, if you're like virtually every other woman I've met, I'm guessing you don't consider history important and never thought to educate yourself outside of school.
No, I'm not going to try to be witty here or force an "I'm so awesome" comment; people usually notice the facial hair first, or the way that I carry myself.

#6 - you'll just have to find out in person
Current quote I'm pondering: "Is it a sin to learn to be able to live without love?"
Oh, and why almost every single mother on here tries to virtue-signal about being a Christian... yeah, you were such a good Christian that you decided not to wait for marriage and have a baby despite not having or wanting a father to help raise that child. And you probably never considered the elevated rates of incarceration, suicide, and a wide range of mental disorders among children of unwed mothers compared to the general population. Who cares about the child so long as you are satisfied in having one, eh? Right, but I'm the horrible person for pointing it out (although I do have a PhD in Horribleness). Besides, it was totally the man's fault, because, um, reasons.
Finally, I've been pondering if Gresham's Law or something very similar applies to online dating. Given the evidence on my end and from other men, it certainly has all the signs of Gresham's Law applied to women. I guess valuations really have become completely distorted and the good ones taken off the market through various means. At least men are starting to do the same. Don't know what I mean? Simple: MGTOW
-You live in America. I've lived in other countries but I have no intention of leaving this one. You may be the perfect woman but I have heard too many horror stories from men who married foreigners. And by foreigner I should add that I've heard terrible stories of American men and Canadian women, so it's not a problem specific to any one region. Then again, I've heard plenty of horror stories from women of all types, usually starting with a variation on the phrase, "I never thought she'd do that..."
-You have any interest in me or my own interests. Do ask any questions as I'll almost* certainly respond and answer them.
-You actually know how to have a conversation.
-You enjoy someone who can just as easily debate politics and philosophy as talking about the sillier things in life.
-You like music because it's good rather than following the herd and listening to it because it's popular
-You don't have "Netflix" listed as a hobby.
-You would rather have a good relationship than a one-night stand.
-You are NOT a socialist, "progressive," or anyone else who thinks forcing your ideology on others at gunpoint is a good idea.
*Spammers and idiots will be ignored. Remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question, just a lot of inquisitive idiots ;)
