Before you post a question, check the FAQ to see if it's already been answered.
Keep questions short for more answers.
If you're not going to like honest answers, don't ask your question.
And please no derailing arguments.

>Do girls/guys like <insert specific look>?
>What do girls/guys think about <an insecurity including, but not limited to: looks, physical traits, personality traits, virginity or otherwise lack of dating experience>
There is no one answer. Preferences differ, but complexes are always a turn-off.

>I'm shy and afraid of people/rejection. What do I do?
Get over it by practising and exposing yourself to it, little by little, step by step. There is no single magical moment that will instantly change you forever.

>I like someone. What do I do?

You guys were friends at first? I'm guessing she doesn't know where your relationship stands and is too afraid to talk to you about it.

My best friend made out with me recently and I've been feeling awkward because I don't know how to bring it up to him and it sort of changed the atmosphere between us so it's not the same like before. Maybe that's how she feels too.
>gf gets an appearance change i'm not a fan of
She usually does these by impulse decisions and then gets rid of them like a week later max, I don't really like it this time and I don't want to encourage her to keep them or anything, but I really don't want to piss her off or anything, what do?

If she's in some hardcore lefty bullshit field, she immediately goes in the no pile. Lawyers are also a no go.

Why do you post on 4chan? I always see the femanons on /adv/ complaining about how hostile it is to women here so why not just go somewhere else?

No hostility meant, honest question

I have been thinking about my future and realize that my parents won't be here in 20-30 years. They probably will be old and sick too. I want to get married and have kids but I think I would be a shadow of my former self once one of my parents dies.

Should I pay for private schooling my children, or is public schooling good enough?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
private school or charter school is best unfortunately, they're going to come out socially retarded (not friendless or incapable of socializing, just neurotic and dysfunctional, like all private school graduates).
don't send them to any school, teachers are shills. don't declare your kids to the government, hide them in a basement and pretend from the day of their birth that you and your kid are the only people on Earth and you shouldnt go outside because it's very cold. Make things up as he grows up. Never let him out. (also, kill wife, women are shills)

Make him a genius. only math books allowed. No internet, no tv
thats what I plan to do very soon when I finish my studies

It really depends on the particular schools. It's not so hard to imagine a situation where the local public school has better teachers than a private school. As long as you keep an active interest in your children's education, you will see where they excel and where they need help, and you'll see if they're stagnating or not. I grew up in the Deep South and went to public schools from k-12, and I regret it every day. It's set me behind so much. I think a lot of people underestimate just how poor the quality of education is in Georgia public schools. The standards were so low you'd have to be actually retarded to fail. The early years are dominated by disciplinary issues and the later ones are dominated by crime. The teachers mostly gave up long ago, and the good ones get eaten alive. It was a lot more like prison than a school. I consistently had the highest test scores, so my parents assumed things were A okay. The problem is, it's not hard to be in the 99th percentile when the material is so dumbed down it is insulting. The teachers are pressured to pass as many students as possible, and a lot of them just don't get it, or they don't try at all. So if you have students who can't perform operations on fractions, the teacher just has to sort of remove that from the curriculum. In my senior year, the final exam for English was "List the parts of speech and describe them". This was considered to be a tough exam. Students complained that it was unfair and threatened to complain in mass because clearly she was trying to fail them.
I went to a private school while my brother went to a public school. We both did well at school and we're both pretty successful in our 20s. If your kids are going to learn and do well in school, it doesn't matter where they learn because they'll be inclined to learn anyway.

I would imagine if someone had special learning needs, they might be better off in a private school though, where teachers can give them more attention. Otherwise, it doesn't matter.

So, I had a serious relationship with this fantastic girl for just a little over 2 years. We met in class during the autumn of 2015 and clicked so goddamn well and fell so goddamn hard for each other. We both just knew. We didn't fight alot, but it happened sometimes, mostly over intellectual things, and a few times over emotional things. She had a very strict family who didn't let me spend the night in their house ever, and they didn't let her spend the night in my home (which she did though, by lying to them and such). A considerable problem, since we rarely woke up next to each other (very hard for me), but it was manageable.

We spent most of our time with each other during the whole school year (Autumn 2015 -
Spring 2016) and we went on a holiday in Prague in the summer. She moved to another city to study one year at another place (Autumn 2016 - Spring 2017). This was the first and sadly a very big blow to our relationship. I had the ability to go to her town at a total of 4 times during that year, and she came back home a few times. During the autumn, along with all of the tight schedules and the fact that we were separated by 160+ miles, she really felt that she didn't get what she needed of me, so she broke up. I managed to mend it together and we went on through last summer (2017).

Im scared anons. Im going to fail my math final tomorrow (i have a coding one ill probably do ok on). This will be the second time ive failed this math class. I dont think im cut out for comp sci. I dont even enjoy it, i just wanted to do it so one day i could make make video games or something cool.

Ive had an internship, know people in the industry, and i honestly dont think i can do it. I liked Comp Sci because i could maybe make games and i would get a nice salary and secure job but i dont think i care anymore. I've been depressed for awhile, smoking a bunch of pot, crying. I just dont think i can do it.

I want to film stuff, draw, animate, all the things i use to love but i always thought it was dumb to peruse because "muh money".

Is it going to be ok anons? thats all i want to know. I want to do it, i really do. Im tired of being a sad piece of shit i wanna work real hard every day and do something cool anons but im scared that if i take two steps back to radically change my life ill end up a failure.

What's your biggest flaw?

How do you try to overcome that?
Mentally? OCD. I've gone off and on a lot of medicines, in the past. Some years I'm terrific. Some I feel like shit. I work hard to get better, though.

Physically? Facial eczema. I occasionally use a steroid for it, though in lose dosage. Sometimes I get lazy and forget to put any ointments on for a week and end up looking like a ghoul.
social anxiety/avoidance and everything that results from it: social inexperience -> lack of social skills -> unable to support others emotionally -> unable to form real relationships with people -> essentially a worthless human existence because all i do is use up resources without giving anything back

besides that it also makes me sad and lonely but since that only affects me, it's only a side effect of the flaw.
how i try to overcome it: try to put myself out there in uncomfortable situations and be there for people in the ways i can. recently i haven't really been successful though, in the last few months i ran away from two social engagements where people expected me to participate and had to lie to explain why. i told the truth to one person and that way probably ruined our relationship.

Saying 'fuck it' does really work to push yourself over that edge. The danger with saying 'fuck it' is that you can push yourself too far and hurt or kill yourself. On that edge though is where things happen, it's way for profitable than just playing things safe.
OP here
Yeah, I could have put it better but this isn't bait.
Chugging 50g protein drinks daily and lifting for the last month is already having an effect.

Absolutely, I got to the stage of "fuck it" because I no longer minded rejection or failure because of how bored, depressed and lonely I was. It was better than nothing, and it paid off.
You were just a repressed normie.
Nah, she's actually great looking. I've seen too many of my friends fall for land whales repeatedly because they were the only girls that gave them attention, it always destroyed them.
This was only the 2nd girl I've ever actually wanted to be in a relationship with. I'm not the desperate type.

- Family structure intact
- Practically no cheating or divorce (certainly no divorce rape)
- Cheating is harshly punished by law
- Can easily get a young virgin wife with no STDs (practically impossible in the west)
- No feminism
- No SJW
- Women aren't allowed to literally destroy society by being rampant out-of-control whores and sluts
- Always warm
- Get to wear nice clothes made of comfortable fabrics, beautiful keffiyehs, etc.
- Very low crime rates, no one dares to steal
- In many muslim regions, especially rural, the people are extremely nice, and generous

After years of hating muslims, I now love them, and envy them. I fully understand why they want to kill degenerate western women and numales living in urban centers, and I don't blame them.

Unfortunately I can't "just convert", it's something I would have to be born into, in an Islamic country.

If you think women have no power in Muslim society you're severely misinformed.

Muslims don't hate women. There is not a single place in the world where women are hated by men. These laws and practices that you envy are a mark of extreme gynocentrism that we in the West have a different view on, but nowhere in the world are we free of it.

Women will always be the limited factor in reproduction and therefore will always hold power over men in some way. They will always be privileged in some way or another. That which we call oppression in the middle East, is just an extreme take on protection of uteri and future children. This is biological, man. There is no escape.

So you can either accept it and roll with it, go MGTOW and renounce your nature as a reproducing life form, or go gay and do the same.

If you go gay, you should probably stay away from Muslim countries as well.
I'm from north africa and generally it's less like enforcing of islam unlike countries like saudi arabia. and what I can tell you OP, after I came to the U.S , I've been ruined, I went from a cheerful person from a collective society to a depressed fuck, who doesn't trust anyone in an individualistic society, people are so cold and unfriendly(most of em atleast).
pretty lucky to not be born and grow up in the west, but what I got here is good, access to libraries easily, good internet so I can learn many thing etc..
Ye Islamic society can be comfy but in the middle east it's a bit extremist but still everyone feels like family, same for north africa except it's less extremist but still sticks to core values
Women can be bitchy too sometimes.
and no women don't get beaten where I'm from.
I wouldn't hate women if I lived in a muslim country.

But allowing women to do whatever they want is like letting children do whatever they want, with no guidance or boundaries.

It's disastrous, and in this case it can literally destroy civilization (we're already more than half-way there), that's why I hate women in the western world.

In a muslim country I'd have no reason to hate women.

You dont wish you were born a muslim, you wish for women with no feminism infection. I agree with you, feminism is a cancer that is killing western civilization.
Muslims do have other problems tho, but its indeed a good way to purge the evil that feminism is.
Women from muslim countries can still be bitches OP, you have no idea, but yea in general they are more loyal / kind, but they can be annoying sometimes.

I'm a 23 year old high school drop out, is it too late for me to learn math/science and get a degree?
17 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>Professors like slightly older students as they tend not to skip class/assignments/exams because they want to party or other childish shit and are there to learn.
I have never met a math student who skipped something in order to party
I started when I was 21.
In a way, I preferred it, because when I was 18 I was living with my parents, played video games, and was generally lazy.
Then I spent 3 years working and living on my own, learned how to take care of myself.
I think if I started university at 18, I would have just failed/dropped out.

So yeah, try it. Unless your still living with your parents...
I'm doing a math degree in the UK at 26 and I have failed GCSEs and a levels.

You think you'll just have to struggle to learn math, the reality of it is you have to learn, accept and try to change the fact that all your shortcomings in life are ultimately your own, and while you may have not had role models pushing you to do well when you were younger, your happiness was always your responsibility.
Yes, honestly. You don't see any success stories on people who started "late". Hell, you're even unsure of yourself if you can actually make it, so don't go because it's going to be a waste of time and money.
Nah, go for it. You’ll get out at 27 and start out with a nice career. Life isn’t so linear, so better late than never (and it’s never too late)

Quick question about this situation with my gf that has me feeling like her and her roommate are annoying and rude.

A few weeks ago we were all hanging out and they wanted to do something so I suggested watching movie A with my gf and her roommate, they both said yeah sounds awesome. While the roomie gets ready my gf became hungry so instead we went to eat. A few weeks fast forward while my gf is busy studying and yesterday she says come over me you roommate will watch movie A. The roommate gets back from work late so we don't do it.

Today, my gf texts me saying she is going to watch movie A with the roommate, but I can come over until then. I was like uh wtf no. My gf is now frustrated because she "doesn't get to spend time with the roommate" even though they just had a girls night the other day and literally lives with her.

I find it difficult to explain but I would be totally fine if it was like them watching movie B or C or D, but movie A is my suggestion and something I clearly wanted to watch. I worked on a movie that came out a few months ago and my gf said the roommate is feeling lonely so I invited her to see the movie with us (like the 3rd time ive done so), i pay for everything I buy the friend food too.

But I can't get just one instance of this back where they invite ME to something. Wtf?

I know I posted this yesterday but I haven't decided on what to say (its only been 1 day). May say inb4 if you're so violent then beat my dick for the keks or the safe response, which is "I can handle outlaws like you" or some shit like that. I'm curious how this will play out lads.
Also got distracted by seeing Last Jedi, so I probably wouldn't have responded yesterday anyway.

'When we have sex there will be some violence'
maybe don't message back someone who jokes about violence op? just some common sense for you.
Tell her that you beat your last gf so bad that she wound up in a wheelchair
