Would love to hear everyone's opinion on this currently since it has now been out a while and not new anymore. Are you a MGTOW? Were you and you decided it wasn't for you? Maybe you are thinking about this lifestyle choice...
Ladies let us know what you think about this lifestyle? Don't forget to smash that like button.. it's just my ego on the line HA

It seems to me that there are as many different definitions out there of what MGTOW means as there are definitions of what feminism means.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I was MGTOW before there was a name for it.
It was a reaction to female behaviour and the changing legal environment, in which it is too dangerous to form a relationship with a woman, or, in some places, even approach a woman. In Nottinghamshire, England, a man can be arrested on an Orwellian thought crime charge and serve prison time for simply saying hello to a woman. See:
I have been hurt and fucked over by women in almost every imaginable way. I realise that I am far from alone in that experience. I decided that continued attempts to interact with women on that level were a form of self harm.
Subsequent events showed that life and the gods had a perverse and dark sense of humour.
When I was a teenager and then a 20-something I could almost not get a date, because I was not an 'exciting' bad boy.
After 30, women began to come on to me. By the time that they and I turned 35 women were hitting on me. Even at what the younger people in this place may consider to be my somewhat advanced age, I am the target of more than a little female interest. The women who are doing the mating dance in front of me, at this time, range in age from 36 to 51.
I have not touched a woman for 15 years and four months, as a matter of choice.
When I was young, women, as a collective, were not interested. After they hit the wall, women, as a collective, became very interested in me.
How should I feel about that?
What I see are former nightclub party princesses, for whom I would not have been 'fun' or 'exciting' enough when they and I were younger, who are looking for either a retirement plan or a man who they can asset strip in the Family Court after a couple of years of cohabitation and/or marriage.
When a woman approaches me I feel used as a convenience (in a public toilet sort of way). I would not have been 'fun' or 'exciting' enough then, but I am good enough now that her range of options is dwindling due to the effect of the wall.
Should I risk being hurt again?
Should I take a 50 per cent risk (the current divorce rate) that any female with whom I form a relationship will steal everything that I have, which would leave me on a park bench in the rain?
In December, last year, I weakened and allowed myself to be attracted to a woman. I was rejected, which is 100 per cent her right.
