  1. I think you're doing things backwards. You should be gaining weight (including excess fat) and then cutting. Reason being: you're going to be a lot weaker and unable to lift heavier weights the less you weigh, which will make building muscle more difficult. When you're losing weight, you're losing both fat and muscle mass. In other words, the more you weigh, the stronger you get, faster. You might look good shirtless if you try to slim down 130-140, but since you're going to be wearing clothes the majority of the time, you're going to look emaciated at that weight, and you're going to have an even harder time with dating. When I first bulked up from 125-150, I had a little bit of excess fat that I'd never had before. My abs were still visible (slightly), but I had some minor love handles. However, with a shirt on, everyone told me how much stronger I looked since my arms were bigger and clothes fit me better and accentuated my physique better. Two examples of 165 lbs, 5'8: That's my goal, anyway :P
  2. I think the more traditionally masculine you look, the more "nice guy" qualities actually work in your favor-- it makes you come off as a powerful person who's capable of showing restraint and warmth despite your ability to be an aggressive [wagon] without much consequence. Conversely, if you look weak and scrawny, and you behave like a "nice guy," it comes off as submissive behavior; as if you're nice because you can't defend yourself so you have to placate others in order to survive. Like, look at the 3rd-top-rated post of all time from r/ladyboners-- even when that guy's trying to be "cute" he still looks like someone that could rip your head off. If someone like Michael Cera behaved similarly, he'd probably receive a much different reaction :P At least, that's been my experience as a naturally warm, empathetic person who finished puberty at 5'8, 105 lbs and is currently about 155 lbs of lean muscle. Your sense of fashion seems fine to me and you've got an attractive face (no homo :P). To be completely honest, if I were in your shoes, I'd swap my time spent dating with time spent bulking up at the gym. People will treat you much better and dating will require much less effort. Only in the past 6 months did I bulk up from 125 to 155 and I'm still shocked at how much easier dating is and how much more positive attention I get from women now.

    weed doesn't tend to make people violent like alcohol does, but it can definitely sap your willpower and energy to the point where you have de facto depression without it, which is something that I think's often overlooked nowadays... there's a lot of people that claim weed is like some kind of miracle herb with no drawbacks, but it's still a drug that needs to be handled in moderation like everything else

  5. that's much better. good rough draft. if I were you, I'd track my numbers (openers, responses, dates scheduled, meetups) and continue to make various tweaks to things, taking note of what improves your stats and what doesn't. when you're able to schedule dates consistently to your satisfaction, then you don't need to worry about tracking your numbers as much anymore. I haven't really tracked my numbers since 2013, but back then my stats were: 198 openers, 49 responses, 10 dates scheduled, 5 meetups; or, roughly 40 openers per meetup. all from OKCupid and POF. speaking of non-binary, something I forgot to mention is that your raw details (age, height, religion, etc.) should cater to the lowest common denominator unless certain things are very important to you. I leave things like religion and zodiac sign blank because I don't care about my partner's religious/astrological beliefs... but there's a decent amount of women out there who would see your zodiac sign and then write you off because they really believe in that shit :P so you might check and see how including/excluding non-binary stuff affects your results
  6. keep in mind my profile is written solely for women. if you're looking for men, you prob don't even need a bio; you just need good pics. if you're trying to pique women's interest, your profile needs to convey that you're: 1. confident 2. smart (but not nerdy or an intellectual) 3. funny (but not goofy) 4. exciting/interesting 5. non-needy/indifferent 6. a bit of a jerk/edgy
  7. If political beliefs are important to you then feel free to mention how “you wont get along” if they dont believe in certain things. Tho to be fair ive never mentioned anything political in my profile so IDK what would happen. Are you tracking your numbers at all?
  8. it still sounds generic and boring :P that's what you need to use then because it's honest/true. it just needs to be written/articulated better. something like: "Have you ever felt like [describe how you were feeling], to the point where you were just like, '[bleep] this, enough is enough?' that was me back in _____. I was sick and tired of feeling like ____, that I decided to ____. Since then, I've ____, ____, and ____." This Youtuber is very skilled at articulating his emotions in a way which makes them relatable and understandable to the viewer. His Dragon Ball Z video hit the nail on the head with exactly how I felt watching that show as a kid, and more importantly, people who have never heard of DBZ before can watch that video and gain a sense of appreciation for how others feel about the show. 13:41 in the DBZ video is a good example of how he includes a lot of "emotional context" to illustrate his point.
  9. here's my OKCupid profile: I only filled out the self-summary and left everything else blank. The :) smileys are replaced by emojis if the site allows them. On OKCupid, the very top of my self-summary says "read my profile" w/ the devilish smile emoji since IMO my profile description is more attractive than my photos so I want them to read it all. after I right swipe every attractive profile on OKCupid, I go down to my "likes" to see who I liked, and then I copy and paste the same message to every woman who's currently online (by only messaging people who are "online now," your response rates will increase): "IDK if we're a match, but feel free to message me back if you want. Don't be scared away by my profile description-- it's there to filter women out, not attract them in. :)" then if they message me back, I'll skim through their profile and start a conversation based on something I see, then I pitch the date ASAP so I can figure out if they're wasting my time or not. --- most of my dates lately have been from Bumble, Match, and OKCupid. Bumble's gotten really popular in my area while Tinder's very inactive. I've always had good results with Match but the people who message you on Match are generally more serious about meeting up since you have to pay to use Match. I'm not paying to use OKC anymore... in the past they hid the most attractive users from free users, but I think that changed when they switched over to the swipe-based messaging. Tinder's a good barometer for how attractive your profile is though. Bumble tends to show you the most-right-swiped profiles first, and the least-swiped profiles last, so you're essentially going from most- to least- attractive the more you swipe. Tinder, on the other hand, basically has an algorithm which assigns every profile a score, and makes sure everyone's only seeing other profiles within their range of attractiveness. so if you're a 4/10 you won't be seeing many 8/10 profiles, if at all. so if all the profiles you see on tinder are gross, then you're doing something wrong :P --- anyways back to profile descriptions. yours just sounds very generic and boring... which makes it almost seem insincere. I think you need to talk less about what you do/like, and more about why. this is an example of something that could use a why. assuming it's true, it'd be more exciting/interesting if there was singular moment/instance which triggered that revelation which you could briefly talk about. without any context, it doesn't sound very captivating what is your degree in? and why did you choose that? be very specific with regards to your emotions. again, be more specific and elaborate on why those things are important to you. how do they make you feel? I'd either get rid of the part in parenthesis or include a real example you should talk more about what you're looking for in a partner too. and feel free to be very polarizing with your attitude like mine. like I said in the past, it's very difficult to schedule dates if your profile doesn't give off any masculine vibes. I'm not a very traditionally masculine person-- I'm not rugged-looking and I don't have huge muscles but my attitude is pretty masculine. more specifically, my straightforward honesty is. I don't think you're being honest enough on your profile. feel free to shed blood too and be "vulnerable" about shit you've been through in the past as long as you also include how it's molded you into a tougher, more resilient person.
  10. When you say you’re having no luck... does that just mean getting dates with women?
  11. no need for further explanation-- there's your problem. don't shit where you eat I've always thought this analogy should be the other way around..as in, don't eat where you shit idk makes sense to me. but then again, my toilet's in my kitchen

    to be fair, my friends and I knew that the bug existed for weeks and we tried figuring out how it worked. we visited this one bug abuse forum trying to find hints but to no avail. eventually the bug forum released a public guide on how to abuse the bug. which, in hindsight, was really stupid for us to follow at that point since Jagex obviously would've seen it too and been on the lookout for people abusing it. in other words, the game always worked fine for me except for obvious bugs like all the ones tied to construction when that came out. i never discovered any bugs on my own; I was just good at scouring different forums and finding guides before mods removed them. so the average person would probably never discover any major bugs like that on accident yeah pretty much... the bugs were so complicated and outside-the-box that I can't really blame Jagex too much for not catching them. after all, my friends and I weren't able to discover anything major on our own. but then again, I also know absolutely nothing about programming so maybe they just set themselves up for it with poor coding or some shit (shrug). did you discover that shit on your own or did you have other people teach you how to connect the dots?

    yeah the bug I got banned for abusing back in 2007 was called a "forced teleport" IIRC. you and two friends would go to the duel arena and get ready to duel. if you timed things correctly, you'd throw a gnomeball to one person as they're accepting/entering the duel. one person would catch the gnome ball and remain outside the arena while the other person would be sent into the "duel" alone. then, when the person inside the arena exited the duel, both people would be forced back to the duel arena, no matter where they were, because the game thought both players were in the duel arena match. so basically while one person sat in the duel alone, 5 of us got together in barbarian assault and kept pulling the lever for free blood/death runes back when they were 600/300ea respectively. I just wanted to hoard a bunch of runes for myself so I could "retire" and play CW all day with ice barrage since that shit was fun, yet expensive. sadly we only did the trick once one night, and only got about 2M worth of blood runes out of it. got perm banned later that week. was my first and only offense lol

    yeah it definitely has real world value... though in terms of literal monetary real world value, that'd only apply if you were planning to RWT which is against the rules. I think somewhere in the RS terms in conditions it basically says you're "renting" all your items from jagex and they ultimately possess them. so you'd prob be shit out of luck D:

    yeah, in hindsight, RS was basically designed to get you hooked on a false sense of productivity/accomplishment lol though, having my 15 minutes of fame with my low level fire cape did feel like a legit personal achievement. sometimes I'd log on and wear it around Edgeville on the main PK worlds and have crowds of people freak out and follow me around :lol: that was pretty awesome

    Well the very most expensive high rise 1 bedrooms start at $2400 at the newest, fanciest location, but all the others are starting between $1700-2000. Also it looks like 1 Canadian dollar = .77 USD so that would partially explain why things seem more expensive in Toronto

    $1700 for a 1 bedroom is about how much it costs for a high rise 1BR downtown where I live. Downtown's usually the most expensive region in a city so $1700 is the standard rate for a top-tier apartment here. I'm paying $1100/mo for a 1 bedroom + study in an old apt built in the early 70s with no dishwasher or garbage disposal... but it's downtown so it's a pretty solid deal IMO. If I were to upgrade to one of the apartments built within the last 10 years down the street, I'd be looking at a minimum of $1600. I don't really think it's worth it for me to pay an extra $500/mo just for a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and newer aesthetics

    Good call, Jamal. Last summer my computer started shutting off intermittently and I figured it needed a new PSU. On my way to the electronics store, I got in a car accident and woke up in the hospital. Everything turned out fine but when I got back home eventually and installed the new PSU, it still shut off intermittently. Turns out it was overheating because a giant dust bunny was lodged in the fan. I cleaned it out and everything worked fine again. Moral of the story: clean out your tower or you'll end up in the hospital
  20. that’s such a dennis thing to say
