I've actually lost 8 lbs since this whole thing started. Being stressed as fuck and rationing food (minimizing trips to the store as much as possible) is a hell of a diet.

It also helps that I still have to go to work and I sure as fuck aint going to be driving through McDonalds any time soon. PBJs all the way

I think young western women are gonna struggle more with these lockdowns. Think about it:
No hair or beauty salons open
No gyms open
Many don't really know how to cook (some don't even see cooking as something that a modern woman should learn)
Since they are more emotionally driven and image conscious, they'll be more likely to comfort eat to make themselves feel better

Maybe I'm wrong. I dunno.
I think you're onto something here.

Today I was watching the news and there's a beautiful journalist (who is one of my evergreen TV crushes) and I noticed (because she is quarantined in her house) that her eyebrows were bigger than they used to be (slightly, but still).

More preoccupied about my lungs tbh, more free time, more joints.

People can train at home, i have a metal structure with a punchbag for moments like these, (never really used otherwise), good for health and to calm the nerves.

Does anybody here have any self control?
Some people don't eat all day only because they have to work all day, they never had self control to begin with, just favourable circumstances.

Why is this just a “Western” women problem?
Other women around the world don‘t go to beauty salons or workout? What a ridiculous statement.

The West is far more narcissistic than other parts of the world.

I call BS on that.
We're more individualistic in the West. Look at rise of mass tattooing, or how many in the west now have entire digital albums full of hundreds and hundreds of photos of themselves various poses, or the way people now feel compelled to talk about themselves endlessly (here in England people often talk about their “self-esteem” and how they “need to learn to love themselves”). You think that kind of chatter happens as often as it does in the West in places such as Korea, Nigeria, India or any of the Islamic nations? We are a self-absorbed culture.

Yes I actually do, it’s a worldwide thing now thanks to the internet and always online culture, is it is a bit more prevalent in the west? Maybe ,but not exclusive to it.

I never said it was exclusive. But I do think a woman brought up in, for example, an African country or a Far Eastern country would be far less likely to freak out over not being able to get a haircut or her nails done regularly.

It's gonna be over one way or another.
Either we'll learn to live with corona, or there will be a vaccine in the near future or there will be mass riots/anarchy.
Those are the only 3 realistic possibilities.
I'm pretty sure he meant it differently than you thought :messenger_beaming::messenger_beaming:

The internet is from the west as well lol. Hollywood culture is from the west. Maybe it’s popular around the globe but that’s bc the US is so influential.

I agree tho American women are something else. All kinds of fucked up.

it’s funny this one chick I know called me a shut in a week or so ago. pretty sure she is breaking from the quarantine lol.

South Korea is so famous for its vanity that there was a top ten song in China about this awhile back... some of the song may be sad or inappropriate, I think there is naked dancing but it's censored.


Edit: you need to turn captions on to understand this.

Maybe you need to get to know more women since you have a pretty narrow view of them.

Are you overweight? Weight loss is a thing you can do.
No I need to gain weight. I'm a little over 100 pounds, but no matter how much junk I eat I never gain any weight. Hopefully that will change soon with age.

You have no fucking idea about black hair culture and how deep this shit goes for the vast majority of black women.

I think I‘ll get out of this lockdown fitter than I was when I got into it. Doing the most intense crossfit training with my ex girlfriend almost every day. Gonna be ripped when I hit the gym again if this goes on for a couple more weeks.

But don't you see, cooking is something a modern woman should learn.

My guy thinks he's got women all worked out. I'm so proud of him.
Lazy white bitches got time to learn now they won't be spending all thier free time getting thier hair and nails done and indulging in daily debauchery!

No, I'm not. You're talking about your own frustrations again.
Would you like me to post some pictures of Asian girlfriends I've had? I'll trade them for pics of you crying about being forever alone.

Well, why shouldn't they? It's a survival skill.
They don't have to. Certainly not for you.

What are your cooking skills like? Do you know how to take care of yourself? If you did this wouldn't be an important quality you look for in a woman.

If you meet someone you like enough and you have skills (like cooking) that they don't have then that's actually a positive since you have the opportunity to pass that quality on and help better someone else you care about.

What a ridiculous hang up to have. Are you an incel?

Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Why did you feel compelled to mention that they were Asian? Why couldn't you just say “girlfriends”? Does having an Asian girlfriend make you superior to a man who has a non-Asian girlfriend?

Why did YOU feel compelled to group women as western?

In answer to your question, it's becuse you are a bitter little Asian and I'm roasting your mysoginistic entiled ass. Remember that time the Asian woman at work refused to talk to you, then unable to deal with it you said you need to change job? so you made a cry topic on GAF about it got roasted and flounced off the forum for two weeks in shame? Good times!

Try eating more. Honestly, if I didn't gain weight from eating I could easily wolf down 3-4k calories a day just cause I enjoy eating. I normally eat around or less than 2k a day, and that is without factoring in exercise. I'm just under 150 lbs.


Are you getting all types of c as lorries? Protein, carbs, and fat?

If woman says she can't cook or doesn't cook then yes I would think less of her. An adult whether male or female should know how to cook for themselves. If a woman, having reached adult age, still doesn't know how to cook then that would suggest she doesn't care about learning, so your “help better someone” bs doesn't fly.
No, I'm not an incel. Are you?

Someone getting to adult life and not knowing how to cook is not indicative of them not caring or not being willing to learn. Have you ever met someone who went to boarding school throughout their childhood? Or someone who had a stay at home parent or a nanny who did everything for them while growing up so they could focus on studying? If you actually had a conversation with these women instead of judging them then the things you discover might surprise you.

I'm married (sometimes happily :messenger_grinning_sweat:). Sorry to disappoint but no, I don't go around behaving like a misogynistic arsehole who thinks women are not worthy based on an arbitrary self-created checklist.

One day you might start to have some success with women when you change your outlook.

Because my comment was about Western women.
I'm not Asian. You're the one who sounds bitter. Why don't you show everyone your collection of “Asian girlfriends”? Your attitude towards me in that thread makes sense now. You're not only a dickhead, you're a dickhead with yellow fever. That's why you were so worked up.
