There are a lot of successful men on here, particularly in the area of romance. The thread on friendship got me thinking. The biggest problem in my life right now is being abandoned by my old friends. I'm talking people I've known since sixth grade. The hatred they've developed for me is just surreal. My best friend doesn't have a degree. He doesn't even have a high school diploma. He doesn't work. He married a woman in her early 40s and lives off of her, even though she was almost twelve years older when they married. With massive fertility treatments they had a child, though the child had developmental problems. This friend knows I've done p4p, and he has gone out of his way to let me know he dissaproves. He's a hardcore male feminist and a few months ago he sent me an email calling me a rapist and a monster, just because I was going on dates with two girls around the same time. We were in the early stages do there was no commitment. When I told him women do that all the time he freaked. And then when I befriended Nozomi Sasaki he went apeshit, even though ill never be in her league. Sucks that I can't be supported by people I've supported for years. I bailed this guy out of jail so many times, and this is the result. That seems to be the hardest thing about success- the crabs in a barrel mentality and social isolation. Anyone experienced this? Any thoughts on this topic?
