      ​@Pathetic but harmless agree happiness doesn't wait, you have to go get it, figured it out , sometimes fail a few times before you find it. I have learned I can't judge someone else happiness. What I want may not be what you want. And sometimes you think something will make you happy then it doesn't. You have to be willing to see it as a learning experience so it doesn't bring you down. I dont think he is trying to be a jerk by saying he was in the right place at the right time that happens for some people.

    I graduated from UCLA with a 3.89 GPA at a time when the acceptance rate was about 10%. I was very motivated, but not in business. I was motivated by academia. Thanks to the corporatization of academia, I barely made enough money to survive. I moved to another country so that I could have a life instead of work for three different universities, and never have enough money or time to live a life. The US is a brutal country.

      @FIRST LAST nah man or woman, you have a fair point. I admired your grit in fact.
      You described men of my generation quite accurately. Not only have we not resisted, we feed into the system as you suggest. Hard to respect us for that. Our need for sex is evident. . We fuk each other over to get the slightest bit of validation from a female. All while rome burns. It's disgusting.
      I say us instead of them but i can honestly say i dont participate. I hopped out of the matrix a couple months ago. Not on the streets yet lol

      @Boxelder Sorry, I shouldn't have been so blunt in my previous response to you. It's difficult for me to not get worked up while existing in a generation where everything is seemingly rotting on a yearly basis. The only thing we can hold on to for now is the standard of living that's better than most countries but it's just an echo of the culture from a few decades back that is slowly burning out. I mostly blame the older men for not keeping things on the road. They seemingly chose not to endure the suffering that comes from resisting the immediate pleasure that comes from money, sex, avoiding conflict, limitless freedom to 'do what makes me feel good' over responsibility to provide safety and security for a family and community. It's like the men just let it go once the women chose to go to work. They just collectively let go of their place in society with a shoulder shrug. I can't stand thinking about it. Divorces are through the roof with men allowing their kids and money to be stolen. Being convinced that it's okay to murder your boy or girl in the womb because she feels like it. That said, yconceive

    I’m so glad I’m still in a youth program like Boy Scouts. Without it my life wouldn’t be as fun and social as it is now. Bringing young kids together is so important, even if a lot of people (especially people my age) stigmatize it as “nerdy”, “weird”, or “pointless” when it is really so important.

    Scott speaks absolute truth having grown up exactly where he was lucky to go to school then he continued to learn and mature because he knows what women want that we have not found. Partner "is" the number one if you find that person my dad always said "love is no excuse to get married". What do you have in common. I know humans are monkeys need community. I have never "hated upon myself because I never judged myself "!

    Approaching a girl? It's because you're another desperate loser who can't get girls to approach him.

    My sons are age 20 and 22 and very economically viable and talented multilingual young men, physically in good shape and decent people. They are happy and have a very good prospect of great careers and have female admirers.
    However, they tell me that women are extremely choosy about the men they will date and that is entirely down to social media. They have male friends who have never had a relationship with a woman while at university. Young women are not happy. Young men are not happy.
    Young women have a check list of requirements and are very up front in demanding that men live up to. They don't need men who can earn an average wage - young women can do that for themselves. The young women can get sex when they want but don't need a relationship or marriage to do that. Net result is some men get a lot of sex in uncommitted relationships and women end up failing to have children when they can't find a man who will commit and that also meets their checklist.

    When I was 23, both my parents were dead. I have no family. I'd moved around a lot while growing up and ended up settling in a city where I knew no one and found it hard to meet friends.
    I still live and work in that city and earn ok. Having relationships and being part of a social community is just something I've never really considered normal or a god given right. It's actually a fragile thing and not to be taken for granted and difficult to cultivate from scratch if you haven't had it all done for you.

      @Birds Eye I’m in a similar position. I work with a great team of people right now but I have been given the opportunity to work from home, this will give me an increase in income. Im trying to make real friendships with these people before I leave so I’m connected to them outside of work. I’m lucky in the fact I’ve made friends everywhere I have been but I’m also a lazy friend and quite often unreliable, this means I’ve lost friends along the way and that is a big regret for me. I’ve been very lonely at times and at one point I started to pull away more, but I think it was just because I was hurting with feelings of rejection and abandonment. I’m making 2023 all about meeting people and connecting! My advice would be start building your work relationships outside of work. I wish you every success!

      @Birds Eye FYI, with no family network, I threw myself into my work and gave it-and my colleagues-my all. Then I was “bumped” out (a Union rule whereby someone laid off who has more seniority than you gets your job & you’re the one laid off). All those work relationships dried up completely except for the occasional email or phone call for help. Do not imagine that your work colleagues are a real community for you other than perhaps the rare meeting for coffee or a funeral.

    Something which has become very apparent to me in the last couple of years is how much our society has encouraged and conditioned us to strive to live “independently” from our families.
    Not only is this ideal presented as aspirational, those who don’t manage to achieve this goal are looked down upon.
    Examples being young people fixated on moving out of the family home, with those who “still” live at home being seen as having failed, and the majority of elder people now living in care or retirement homes instead of with family because they “don’t want to be a burden”.
    I am absolutely convinced that this trend has caused a large part of the pandemic of loneliness, depression, suicide, cognitive illnesses (such as Alzheimer’s and dementia) as well as many physical conditions that we are now facing.
    These issues do not seem to be as prevalent in societies where people live in larger more traditional family groups and communities.
    One thing that a lot of people said to me when I had my son two years ago was “it takes a village to raise a child”. Well, I think this saying can be extended to many of the things that we have to deal with in life but for a lot of us that village does not exist to the degree we need and online communication is not an adequate solution.
    I feel that the future of our society in many ways will be driven by us reverting back to living, working, shopping and socialising in more local community groups.

      I agree and this is all part of western cultures attempt to destroy the nuclear family and the family unit in general. Insistence on expedience and nihilism really epitomises far left ideology. And with that sort of godless ethos comes the worship of oneself and the glorification of ones needs and proclivities, whatever they may be. You cannot separate this belief system from egalitarian doctrine and 'rights' movements such as BLM, LGBT, and 'trans rights', whatever that is. These are all just nonsensical useless manifestations of ideological dogma.

      Moving away from family is a “white” American ideal. Minorities (especially Hispanic, Asians and Native Americans) don’t consider living with parents or grandparents as being the path of a loser. A lot of the time you are expected to take care of your older relatives, and sometimes that includes them living with (or close by) you as you work.

    Here's what grates me about this interview, on both sides, and even though it's brought up as a contributing factor to this whole 'men are f*kcd' thing, it doesn't ever seem properly aired: class, and poverty, and the cultures that surround those things, and the reason most men and women alike do not go on to live somewhat comfortable financially-stable lives. They live in often systematic generational cycles of engrained poverty and its ruthless culture.
    As someone from that background, who then went to a rich-kid school for awhile, does anyone want to guess out of the few very close friends I still have from my formative education, who are the ones who are financially successful? The upper class, and upper middle class ones. No one else. Not one poor kid I knew and know have a 'rags to riches' story. They all live work-a-day lives, or are criminals, and none seem especially happy. But no one ever seems to want to talk about this bit. The fact that class almost entirely dictates a person's later life. I had this sinking feeling, around the age of say 13/14, that I knew I wasn't going to be able to be as financially stable as I might like because I was not raised to operate in that world. I was never whispered secrets about how to manage money from a rich father, I was never disciplined by a rich mother about how to treat people properly, etc etc. I just had a heroin addict father and a poor struggling single mother who used to give in to manipulations from my addict father.
    I tried, I really did
    I love this channel; but I'm also British, and have mingled enough throughout the various social strata that it isn't hard to literally *hear* the upper/ upper-middle class accent of the interviewer, which points strongly to the fact that he grew up in and apart of that culture and its values. And the same with the guy being interviewed, who didn't just straight up say he came from an 'upper-middle class' situation, but openly admitted that him and his mum (sorry 'mom'), could go on holidays (vacation), every year on the single salary of a *secretary*. Add to that the ease of finding positions in universities (as again mentioned) due to things like them being more affordable in those days - and that post-graduate work in a decent position was often a given - and it all just points to one thing.
    Your family, and their social standing, dictate the quality of your own existence, forever, until the day you die.

      You are playing the role of a victim. It's your identity that you've been carrying around for your whole life. You clearly explained who you are (the disadvantaged one) and who others are (the so called lucky ones). If you want a different life you must reimagine your identity, including how you look at life and how you FEEL about life.
      The lucky ones were taught a different way of thinking, and you can teach yourself the same. You said you tried, but the truth is that you gave up because it was too hard or because it took longer than you liked. The key thing that "upper class" people have that you don't is a mindset of success, and that can be learned. A success mindset really just means that you believe that "I can do it," whatever it is that you decide to do.
      I grew up in a poor family with parents that worked basic jobs and never made much money. I was never encouraged to go to college or do anything significant with my life or to save/invest money or to change or grow into the man I have become, but I knew I wasn't willing to settle for less than an awesome life. I struggled for years to break out and yeah it was tough and painful but I never stopped growing and working on myself because I knew I couldn't accept less than what I wanted. I have owned my own business now for 10 years and I'm also working on a tech startup that I'm passionate about.

    This is exactly true. In America young men do not express interest, even if they are very much interested. Abroad, men express interest all the time and the interaction is free and easy. Nobody cares about rejection, but about the chance. We take chances all the time even when we are married - because it keeps you alive it charges you. In US however people have some sort of pride and they are stuck in some internal metaverse of customs that is strictly American. A-social behavior is celebrated in US. Sarcasm is seen as sophisticated sense of humor, rather than sign of being a depressed loser.

    Quiet quitting is because companies are mismanaging us and are actually breaking down our internal motivation. I didn't quiet quit, I was just driven to my limit and I struggled to squeeze out the minimum from myself by the end (we had layoffs this spring because they moved most of our jobs to the Philippines). They insisted on stats, even if the stats lied because people were cheating but the figures couldn't reflect that, and on motivating us with bonuses when I am just not motivated by more money, I wouldn't even log my overtime even in times when they would pay it (my team was salaried). I was motivated by making a difference and being thorough but I kept being told, effectively, to just be faster instead. Now I have a lot of trouble task switching, so becoming faster at the work we were doing wasn't an option for me. Anyhoo, I learned a lot, I'm grateful for that, worked on an amazing team with fantastic people, but I'm also glad it's over because the life has been squeezed out of me to the point I'm still recovering

      @Lidia Rona It may not necessarily be "about them" but it's just not there. When I think of the men who have shown interest in me -as much as I wanted to be interested in them romantically-but the feelings weren't there/didn't develop, I know it's not an intentional rejection. It's not something one controls. The only thing you can control is giving it a fair chance. After that, it is what it is. That's what I think about when I've been rejected romantically. It seems to take the edge off.

      @Jennie Russell Fragile? Peoples' jobs, schooling, and LIVES have been derailed and their reputations have been irreparably damaged because of having asked out the wrong person. They run to H.R. or to the school official and it's game over for the individual who "asked someone out for coffee" or the equivalent. Obviously this is an extreme scenario and hyperbolic, but it's actually happening. It's not unheard of now. Go look into it.

    We need to factor into the equation if someone is a natural introvert, extrovert or ambivert. I consider myself to be an ambivert (combo of both introvert and extrovert). I find solace and peace staying away from the majority of people. I tend to feel drained by the emotions and mental illnesses that are out there, including in the work setting. I have felt more loneliness trying to fit into a superficial party atmosphere, than being at home watching a though-provoking documentary, fascinating book or working on a creative pursuit or hobby. It's not that I don't appreciate people, but it depends on who those people are and the energy that they bring. Are they stubborn, defensive or angry? Are they extremely boring personalities? I tend to enjoy the company of those who think outside-the-box, have common sense, a great sense of humor and are humble enough to learn new information without allowing cognitive dissonance to interfere. Being a great listener has almost become a rare quality, so I encourage people to learn that skill. Don't just hear the words, actually listen and try to understand where another person is coming from. I think getting outside of our heads and considering others is important too. There is a fine line in relationships because one person might deem you as aloof, while another might consider that person to be introspective and yet another might think that person is rude. That can be draining and not always enjoyable to be around. We can't please everyone, but I think just being comfortable within yourself and being your own best friend is a way to show love and respect to yourself. With that, you can love and respect others more easily, which will help cultivate relationships and hopefully they can flourish with both staying in the same boat together and knowing that despite the boat having different locations upon it, you are still floating along together. I am particular with the company I keep and try to have strong boundaries with those who are toxic. When you start to weed out those who are not true friends, you will put more energy and value in those who really are.

    'Grit' is somewhat less important than the conditions. As Scott acknowledges right at the start he 'hit the lottery', because he appeared in a time when normal social spending towards the public purpose delivered schooling and a level of security many people don't even know now. People do need to be productive, but it isn't some solution to a economies run on bad policy (Monetarism for us for the last 40-odd years). It's a matter of most people just not being able to achieve any level of success or security, no matter how you measure that. Can't rely on the individual for this, we know that. It's been the ideology since the late 70s, it doesn't work.

    What really irks me about these conversations about 'lonely' men is that forgiveness and acceptance of them are treated as foregone conclusions. A lot of damage has been done. A lot. People have been unalived (rolls eyes at not being able to say things plainly) by these men. People have been threatened by these men. Yet based on lectures by Peterson, Galloway, whoever (same message just packaged differently), we're all supposed to move on and just accept these men's rage as a rite of passage. Such BS. Women with sense should steer clear and 'feminist' Galloway should understand why.

      My church, started by a Mississippi sharecropper's son - yes, such things exist - is in the last town in the South to eliminate segregation, yet slightly more than half the congregation is black, as the new pastor. We, unlike the Left, can learn, and have. You'd think that the 125 million corpses left in their wake would be enough to teach them. Slow learners, I guess....

    The best way to think about rejection that helped me is… if you and a girl don’t get along, it’s just a misalignment of beliefs and values, not necessarily rejection. Just put yourself out there and if you’re worth something and feel good about yourself, someone will not reject you. At a certain point it’s a numbers game.

    A very insightful conversation. Thanks, Prof G!
    Speaking as someone in his late 50s in the midst of a career that has helped sustain me for the past 31 years, a lot of what Prof G says resonated very strongly with me. I think that one from the time that he/she is a preteen (between 10 and 12), should have some solid ideas as to what one wants to do with one's life. For instance, when I was 12, I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer because of my deep love and interest in aviation. But I had a reckoning with reality a couple of years later during a 'Career Day' in junior high school. A gentleman had brought with him what looked like a small, adding machine, asking each of us students what professions each of us was interested in taking up as a career. I told him of my desire to be an aeronautical engineer. He fed in my info to the machine and reams of paper shot out. WHOOSH!!! When I saw the amount of science and math courses on those sheets that I would need to be an aeronautical engineer, I felt overwhelmed. While I was good in science, math was a subject with which I had always struggled. I developed second thoughts and abandoned the desire to pursue aeronautical engineering. It would be another couple of years before I --- after some soul searching -- decided to pursue a career in Economics. By that time, with some tutorial help, I had gained a better feel for mathematics and went on to earn straight As in the subject during my last 3 years of high school. I later earned an Economics degree, studied in grad school (on a fellowship) for a year and then applied for the Peace Corps. I had always had a desire to travel overseas and help those who may not have had the opportunities (and luck) that I had. Thankfully, I got accepted into the Peace Corps and worked overseas as a teacher for 2 years. And I never looked back.
    As I said, it helps to develop some sort of blueprint as to what you want to do with your life - both professional and personal. Learn also to take pleasure in everyday life. For instance, the sky and clouds, the rustling of autumn leaves as you walk in your neighborhood, the feel of the wind on your face as you go about your day-to-day stuff. Savor those friendships that sustain you. Don't take any of them for granted - EVER. Pursue your hobbies. If you're interested in studying a foreign language, writing a novel, taking a cooking course, and/or doing yoga, DO IT. Plus, be able to laugh at yourself. I cannot emphasize that enough! I say these things from experience. Sure, there are moments when I get depressed. When that happens, I ride it out and when it has passed, I get myself together and resolve to keep moving forward. Having an optimistic outlook is the key.
    Remember: YOU HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE. YOU ARE UNIQUE. Each of us are here as a result of random chance. Always remember that. Strive to be positive, constructive, and the best you you are capable of becoming, among family, friends, and people in general. While doing so, you'll draw to yourself people --- men and women -- who will enrich your life in ways you can scarcely imagine.

    It is so weird seeming to be one of the few males under 30, married for 5 years, with a kid and not dying financially. I moved to where I needed to, to make enough money for my family. It may be a frozen hell, but I can provide for my family. I think if I hadn’t met my wife in Highschool and married in my early 20s I could have been one of those disaffected young men, I almost did anyway.

I also work right now and have an advanced degree, but would happily move to part time work or stay at home to manage the home if we have kids, as long as our situation allows it. He had low confidence in himself before, but I showed him a site that calculates how common men are by age, height (not that I care but a lot of women do), and income, (and a box you can check for "not obese") and he's in the top 4% of men nationally. He had no idea he was this valuable already, and his career is really just starting. I think a lot of women have unrealistic expectations of men these days.

      I always find it interesting how often people with money talk about Christianity. I’m pretty convinced it’s a cult and you sell your soul to gain money. God=money to Christians in America, I think.

      @Beryl Comar not quite. You watch to see if their actions match their words. Not sure how you've managed to navigate life without considering this.
      The words are always only words without an accompanying action.

      @Paul Bogle so, when someone says “I love you” reply “Thankyou, that’s lovely. What is it that you love about me?”
      If they can’t answer that, specifically, then it’s just words.

      @Beryl Comar words as in claims. Like someone saying 'I love you'
      Clearly words themselves mean things or comment sections would not be worth anyone's time. Nor would much for that matter

    He didn't laugh out loud for 14 years. That's wild. Really makes me appreciate my own life. It's hard for me to think of a day in the past 10 years I haven't laughed out loud.

      What makes me laugh out loud: spending time with my kids, having riotous good fun. One of them is 21. So glad he still lives at home with us.

    I'm 34 and it's in this year I've taken so many small moments in, reading a book with my kids, looking out my window in to the street at whatever is there, cooking dinner for my family and watching them enjoy it.
    It's not alway easy to stop and find gratitude in 'just being' but if you manage to do it where you can it really does wonders for your wellbeing.

      Your comment resonates so much. I'm a similar age without a wife or kids; I took the ever fashionable themes of society very seriously growing up, as if they were inarguable templates for aspiration. It was a loss of focus, a twenty years-long fever dream. I'm grateful to have refound a connection to being through actively listening to others and participating as a constituent part of society as opposed to the sine qua non (not sure if that's the correct application of the term; I mean to say: believing that I am the only person affected by the world, the only person that matters in this life). I hope the distraction-mongers in society come round to a similar realisation, that our main purpose for being here is to help others. Thanks again for the comment.

      @Kili Marshal Kili - you got to first know your requirements. A lot of guys (not saying you) in West bought the hype and are just floating around trying to not make commitments. There are good quality gals everywhere, no they're not chasing top 5% because they themselves are not too 5%. But they are good quality women who can help you build a stable home from which to focus energies on work. Its just how do you communicate that you value that.

      I am 32 i still have no long term partner. Young men are not being sexist they just frustrated that women have advantage. I should have long term female by now they have too much choice easier for them find partner. Lets add feminist wanting to empower not equality with these new feminist say horrible things about males . we can't even play guns at age 5

    Thanks for the subject sections!!! And by the way I’ve been saying this for years as I am raised with old norms and values bit really struggle with the new generation in the current society. With friends it’s not a big problem, but with finding a partner (a bit younger) Norman’s and values are way different. Speaking to every day people is way harder, younger people are way more into instant or short term satisfaction (dopamine addiction like sex, money, status, gaming, tiktok, insta, attention) and not working on long term satisfaction (working hard with expecting instant more money, being happy with nothing, a good and long conversation and actually listening). All these youtubers, tiktokkers, instagirls are mostly (not all e.g. informative, educational accounts) a no go for me. The fact that they do it that intensity says something about them (attention, acceptance, confirmation etc). They all talk about multiple streams of income but most of they youngsters do this my mean of crypto, social media or pyramid like constructions, which are either hypes or semi scams (they are dangerous when not knowing the risks). The feedback that I get from many managers in different organizations about youngsters is that they expect loads of money and have so little experience and actually business knowledge they often get rejected or aren’t of the same value and therefore get paid less. The fact that the trend of elder vs younger people is growing too doenst predict something good for the future
