When I first started lifting in 2012. Then after 2 years or so, I realised lifting wasn't going to magically make my life better. So I started gaming again. I still lift, but I don't see lifting as a way to "make it".

After 5 years of lifting I realised women only actually give a shit about what you can do for them, in terms of providing them with resources etc (home, car, good job). Just having a good body isn't enough to transform into a normalfag.

I'll never be a normalfag, not unless I some how come into a lot of money, then it will be easy to play the part of a normalfag, because normalfags love money and see past all your flaws if they think they have even a 0.1% chance of getting access to some of your resources.

Pretty much this @Nojokur

I used to play in order to escape reality (because I'm a pussy, not because life is hard), so it just doesn't do anything for me anymore, now that I embrace reality and have a pretty decent life.

hey thanks for this post, im also in the same boat i started getting serious into lifting back in 2012 and in 2013 i started going to a gym and have been lifting every day since then.

While i was getting a lot of attention from women in every day life i also came to the conclusion that without a lot of money you cannot pretend to be a rockstar and get instant gratification or any sort of meaningful response from females.

Having regular sex with several girls. Before that my life was 33.3% friends, 33.3% vidya and 33.3% studies. Now its 33.3% friends, 33.3% getting laid or trying to get laid and 33.3% work.

@JunkTop
Growing up, I guess. Getting kicked out of the progress group in WoW was the catalyst: I started concentrating on my studies, job... and lifting took the place of gaming.

I broke up with my long time GF.
Realized I was a superskeleton 6'3" 130lbs
Legs so emaciated that I would hit them just to restore sensation.

One day I just pulled my HD, Bought a clean one and two days later sold my computer/monitor/desk/chair/headset etc. on craigslist for $300 But honestly i would have given it away.

My life isn't perfect now, but god am I so much happier.

It's precisely as dreadfull as it sounds. After I broke up with GF, I literally just worked, came home, ate one meal and snacks and played Vidya for 10-12 hours, slept for 2-3 Then repeated.

It's simple, really.

When you have played masterpieces like S.T.A.L.K.E.R and your tastes actually got refined enough, there's no games that gets to such level of perfection to enjoy. Or occasionaly.

tfw either budget crap or AAA games that are bland and alike to please the majority of retards

Besides, fictions have better stories.

Still crave modded skyrim every now and then, but I really don't want to lose the time for my hobbies and goals.

This. I hate fiction in general especially fantasy fiction, but some scifi novels are worth reading just because of how good the writer is.

I still play games but much less than I used to, and usually only socially with my bros

The catalyst was when I got suckered into getting Overwatch, and then hearing every other rando whine and cry nonstop like little bitches in mic chat over the most minor shit. Quit that game ASAP and figured if I was going to hear people bitch, I'd rather hear them IRL where I can at least slap the little cunts.

The Overwatch community is more cancerous than League of Legends desu

/pol/-tards will force SJW into anything that's not facism. Probably that a girl has short hair or that you get a chance to kiss your friend as a dare in the game.

I turned 26. I still play them every now and then at a friends house, but I used to spend like 4 hours a day minimum playing them and I just stopped cause I had a lot of adult shit to do.
