Speaker:

And you know, much like our bonus episodes on Patreon.

Speaker:

I didn't come on until like the second or third one.

Speaker:

That's true.

Speaker:

and really my episodes didn't start getting good until the second or third one.

Speaker:

So, uh, I like just keep the tradition going.

Speaker:

That's fair.

Speaker:

what do you think?

Speaker:

What do you think of the MI the assholes so far as someone who's listened

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

Oh, they've been funny, Yeah.

Speaker:

Only one has been out at the time of recording, but, yeah, Alex did a great job.

Speaker:

She was, it was nice to get a woman's perspective on things.

Speaker:

glad to know that for the most part, y'all aligned with her And, I'm have to hear the Dustin one.

Speaker:

We talked about it briefly on another episode.

Speaker:

and that was a crazy story.

Speaker:

So I can't wait to hop in and, uh, hear more asshole stories.

Speaker:

Dustin was a, a change from both you and Alex.

Speaker:

You both, you and Alex are very.

Speaker:

Outspoken about your opinions and it is great.

Speaker:

Uh, , Dustin was a lot more calm and, and cool.

Speaker:

And, you know,

Speaker:

Very even ke.

Speaker:

I was gonna say it was a type of content that I was like, you know, the whole disappointed daddy thing.

Speaker:

I don't wanna disappoint him because I don't wanna get that

Speaker:

lecture from

Speaker:

Dustin.

Speaker:

exactly.

Speaker:

so in this episode we have a wife and her husband's unhealthy eating and a D and D group splits up

Speaker:

on

Speaker:

Yeah, well, not the splitting up, but D D baby.

Speaker:

I am excited about the unhealthy eating.

Speaker:

I feel like that little close to home for me.

Speaker:

and Sean got D D we're just a bunch of goddamn

Speaker:

nerds in the

Speaker:

show.

Speaker:

everything we could ever want.

Speaker:

on top of that, I am diversifying these episodes a little bit to some other subreddits.

Speaker:

so after the break with this episode, we are heading over to our slash nice guys to learn about Richard's flirting

Speaker:

tactics

Speaker:

What a Dick?

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

Got

Speaker:

and we explore the of one man who believes all women have conspired against

Speaker:

him.

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

I'm so upset that there is a nice guy, subreddit,

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

the, kind

Speaker:

of content.

Speaker:

We'll never go at a

Speaker:

business.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

But the connotation that that needs to exist makes me so sad.

Speaker:

question.

Speaker:

Is that so red, like sarcasm?

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Like it's like, it's like guys who claim to be nice guys.

Speaker:

Uh, and they're well, sorry.

Speaker:

It's not them.

Speaker:

It's people who have to deal with them.

Speaker:

Usually through dating apps or, or real life.

Speaker:

And they tell stories about it or provide screenshots of people being quote unquote, nice guys.

Speaker:

Ew.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

There's nothing wrong with being an actual nice guy, by the way.

Speaker:

sure.

Speaker:

Yes,

Speaker:

Yes, but

Speaker:

the guys on that sub Reddit are definitely the fake nice guys.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

They're the opposite of a nice guy.

All of the links I just talked about are of course, in the show notes as always.

Speaker:

With all of that outta the way, it is time to dive into the first story of the day.

Speaker:

Do, do, do keeping the rhyming going.

Speaker:

We'll see how long

Speaker:

it lasts.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You'll see how long, a lot.

Speaker:

It's it's ending very quickly.

Speaker:

There's only so many things you can rhyme to introduce this, but starting off, am I the asshole for confronting my husband about his unhealthy choices?

Speaker:

I, a 28 year old female and my husband, a 30 year old male will call him K have been married for two years.

Speaker:

And together for five, it was made very clear at the beginning of our relationship that I care a lot about physical fitness.

Speaker:

Kay.

Speaker:

And I have always been, you fit people who regularly attend the gym and eat well.

Speaker:

So this has never been a problem.

Speaker:

Five months ago, my husband decided to go off his anxiety meds.

Speaker:

I know people typically gain weight while on certain medications, but he thankfully never had that

Speaker:

problem, which already, you know, she says he thankfully never had that problem, but if he did.

Speaker:

it would be a

Speaker:

know, it sounds like it would be a

Speaker:

problem

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

from the second sentence in, I was like, I don't know about this one.

Speaker:

I, uh,

Speaker:

The asshole is getting a little

Speaker:

bigger

Speaker:

for me.

Speaker:

just, it's it's on the edge.

Speaker:

It's on the edge of

Speaker:

yeah, it's Prairie dogging right now

Speaker:

at this point.

Speaker:

exactly.

Speaker:

she continues on, however, since going off his meds, I've noticed that he's been going to the gym less and has been eating some junk food.

Speaker:

Because of this, he has gained a amount of weight.

Speaker:

I've tried to urge him to go to the gym more and cut out junk food, but he didn't take it well and would just kind of go silent and nod.

Speaker:

When I suggested it recently, one of brother-in-laws a 33 year old male will call him D came over.

Speaker:

He noticed my husband had gained a lot of, since his last visit a few months ago.

Speaker:

A couple nights ago after dinner, Kay, was getting an unhealthy snack after dinner de noticed Kay, eating a lot of snacks and told Kay that he needed to chill and cut down on the carbs.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

I wish someone told me that, to be honest.

Speaker:

God damn

Speaker:

Sometimes I feel it.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

my husband got offended and said that it was none of his brother's business, what he ate and that gaining 10 to 15 pounds, isn't a big deal.

Speaker:

I tried to stay out of it, but then Kay asked why I wasn't defending him.

Speaker:

I finally broke and gently said that, honestly, I agreed with D that my husband's weight gain was a problem.

Speaker:

Gaining 10 pounds in five months was pretty extreme.

Speaker:

And if I had known this would happen, I would've never encouraged Kay to go off his meds.

Speaker:

Kay got really upset and went off to our room.

Speaker:

Ended up, ended up staying there for the rest of the, which I felt was kind of dramatic.

Speaker:

But anyway, later when I went to bed, Ks, why I said all those rude things.

Speaker:

I didn't think I was rude.

Speaker:

So I got kind of offended that he was suddenly accusing me.

Speaker:

I ended up losing my cool and saying that I couldn't believe he didn't see the problem.

Speaker:

His weight gain was causing me stress and making me not attracted to him

Speaker:

anymore.

Speaker:

Oh, no.

Speaker:

he used to look amazing.

Speaker:

but now I can barely even see his abs, which I know isn't a big deal to some people.

Speaker:

But to me, it is Kay.

Speaker:

Started crying and told me to get out.

Speaker:

And I ended up sleeping in the guest room.

Speaker:

He still won't talk to me.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole for finally telling my husband the truth about his health.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

So I will say this You should never stop trying to look attractive for your spouse.

Speaker:

I will say that,

Speaker:

Sure.

Speaker:

things happen.

Speaker:

Life comes at you quick, but you know, just because you're married doesn't mean you should stop trying that being said, there's obviously something tied to his weight gain.

Speaker:

And, uh, instead of gaslighting him and being like, Out of nowhere, like you're you fat fuck.

Speaker:

maybe just be like, Hey, like we've noticed since you've got off your meds, you know, you don't like doing this or that.

Speaker:

it is affecting me because I do want you to still, I, I still wanna feel like you're trying your best to, I would never.

Speaker:

I mean, I guess that's just, cuz it's not previously established, like it was for them like, oh my God, like you need to go to the gym, you need to stop eating snacks or blah, blah, blah.

Speaker:

Like that is, is appalling to me to even think, to say that to, my partner.

Speaker:

So I, I do think kind of an asshole, but also I sympathize because I feel like, you know, Yeah, it's not good to get lazy.

Speaker:

But also, you know, you, I, I do think you are the asshole though.

Speaker:

obviously you could tell your, your husband was defensive, you gotta side with your husband, but then later on, maybe just have a one-on-one and be like, if you did really get that defensive, why did you get so defensive about it?

Speaker:

maybe we can look deeper into what the actual problem is and then solve that, but definitely siding with your brother-in-law and gang up on your husband in his own house.

Speaker:

I mean, it's y'alls house, but also in his safe space.

Speaker:

not a good look, definitely asshole vibe, uh, final verdict for me, asshole.

Speaker:

I'm gonna jump in cuz I think the end part Sean talked about is a great point.

Speaker:

There is a point to bring it up to your husband to say, Hey, I'm concerned.

Speaker:

I know you became off your anxiety medications, maybe that's, triggering some other things, do you want to get more help?

Speaker:

Do you wanna go back on the meds?

Speaker:

Trying to work through it with him instead of just holding it in for five months and then, waiting until his brother is gang up on him to then side with his brother to gang up on him.

Speaker:

it seems like an unprompted, intervention that was probably not needed before there were, is any other conversation about it.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

so definitely the asshole for that part.

Speaker:

you sound like a very shallow human being for, looking at skin deep and not even considering his mental health since he very clearly is dealing with something.

Speaker:

And I think you're absolutely the asshole and, I feel bad for your husband.

Speaker:

Not saying you can't men this, but yeah, you you're, you're in the wrong here for sure.

Speaker:

Yeah, I was gonna say initially intentions, not so much of an asshole.

Speaker:

Like it sounded Like, at first she was very concerned about his wellbeing, his health, and how possibly like the weight gain can affect him.

Speaker:

Physically and you know, like healthwise and then she kind of pivoted, she'd be like, I ain't attracted to you no more homeboy.

Speaker:

Cuz I can't see your six pack anymore.

Speaker:

You're looking like you got a keg now.

Speaker:

You know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

Like when she said that I was like, you kind of

Speaker:

an asshole

Speaker:

Like, what do you think when he hits 40?

Speaker:

He's still gonna

Speaker:

have a

Speaker:

exactly, exactly.

Speaker:

I mean you could, you could.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

I think, The approach was even more of an asshole move because like what you two said it was,

Speaker:

he was ganged up.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Like he was pretty much left there to drive homeboy special K here.

Speaker:

Like he had no choice, but to fucking retreat, you know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

But I think if she had approached it to be like, Hey, I made you some snacks that are a little healthier.

Speaker:

I'm eating it.

Speaker:

You, you want to eat with me too.

Speaker:

Like you kind of encourage that collaborative thing cuz going to the gym.

Speaker:

Sometimes you need that spotter person to like kind of hype you up.

Speaker:

You know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

Like maybe she's like, Hey, maybe we can go out for a workout.

Speaker:

Maybe we can go out for a run type of situation, make it a, a

Speaker:

bonding situation instead of just saying like you ugly boy, cuz you fat now like type of shit.

Speaker:

And I.

Speaker:

I'm gonna go three for three with Jill.

Speaker:

She's definitely

Speaker:

the asshole.

Speaker:

Am I giving too much sympathy for her?

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

think you did honestly, but it's

Speaker:

whatever you,

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

it is just, you know, I do see where she's coming from.

Speaker:

It is an asshole thing for sure.

Speaker:

To be like, I'm not attracted, like, obviously the issue is the anxiety meds and, you know, find the root cause talk like a fucking, all of these.

Speaker:

Am I, the assholes, just talk like a fucking normal person be, be regular.

Speaker:

but she's worried for her husband's health and she wants him to look and try like he did

Speaker:

before, which is fair.

Speaker:

But also

Speaker:

again, definitely the asshole ganged up on her husband in his safe space.

Speaker:

didn't talk prior to, you know, kind of like ease him in there.

Speaker:

And I, I don't know.

Speaker:

It's just, the communication is key.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

so we'll, we'll end it on, this.

Speaker:

I believe if she had the right intentions, I wouldn't call her an asshole, but it doesn't seem like she's as concerned about his mental health as she is about his physical health.

Speaker:

And For that, I believe she's an asshole.

Speaker:

She's concerned more about the, the physical attractiveness of her husband rather than his mental wellbeing.

Speaker:

And that's where I find him or find her to be the asshole.

Speaker:

Facts

Speaker:

Yes, sir.

Speaker:

And just to close it out home girl, you need to work out on your communication skills,

Speaker:

cuz

Speaker:

it's

Speaker:

And, And, there it is.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

So moving on to our final am the asshole of today.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole?

Speaker:

Because I don't wanna host our D and D games anymore because of a player's girlfriend.

Speaker:

Mm.

Speaker:

the last three

Speaker:

Can go 50

Speaker:

51 person can totally ruin a party,

Speaker:

we shall

Speaker:

see.

Speaker:

for the last three months, I, a 34 year old male have been hosting our D and D games in my flat, everyone was fine until one of the players wanted to bring his girlfriend, along, in itself was not a big problem.

Speaker:

So we all read that she could watch, she did not wanna play herself as she was in her own words to inexperienced.

Speaker:

Which is no such thing in D and D anyone

Speaker:

can

Speaker:

play.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Anyone could play, but I, I get, uh, I have friends that like to go for the vibes, but don't participate in board games.

Speaker:

That's fine.

Speaker:

So far so good.

Speaker:

As someone who was a part of a D and D podcast, I, I understand people who wanna listen to it and just watch, during the session, she came across as very bored and constantly made loud SI noises to, I guess, express her boredom, which was disruptive.

Speaker:

And to be honest, childish, in my opinion, she also had a very rude attitude in general, and complained about the choices of snacks and drinks.

Speaker:

what really annoyed me came after this session.

Speaker:

However, two days ago, I logged into discord and went to our group's video game channel just to discover that the girl was talking shit behind my back.

Speaker:

Calling my place, a dirt hole and calling me a psycho as well as my husband creep.

Speaker:

she probably didn't realize that I was on the channel because I used a different name on the discord.

Speaker:

I guess I have to explain here.

Speaker:

I make paper flowers for weddings and funerals as my up.

Speaker:

So my flat sometimes is a bit untidy, but never unclean or dirty.

Speaker:

She found it creepy that a grown man had dozens of paper flowers lying around mind you.

Speaker:

I put them all on my work desk to make the place more comfortable for visitors.

Speaker:

my husband came home from the evening and startled her when he entered the living room.

Speaker:

Well, I can't say for sure why she called him a creep it's either because of their, is an age gap between me and him of seven years, or because he has a disfigured face due to an accident.

Speaker:

Which would be terrible if that was the

Speaker:

Oh my

Speaker:

yeah, no, the age thing is kind of terrible too, but anyway,

Speaker:

Yeah, cuz seven, when you're 37 years is.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

That's no big deal.

Speaker:

honestly, I'm like 29.

Speaker:

I can't tell the difference between me and a 40 year old

Speaker:

that's cuz you're a 40 year old at heart.

Speaker:

Sean.

Speaker:

probably, but like, I, I hang out with a decent amount of people.

Speaker:

I hang out with some like 38, 39 year olds.

Speaker:

It's the, it's the same thing.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

Everyone's the same.

Speaker:

uh, upon hearing this, I was angry and when the players asked when the next session would be, I told them the date and also that the girlfriend was not invited to come since she felt so uncomfortable in my dirt hole

Speaker:

of a place,

Speaker:

said that in the group chat

Speaker:

I guess

Speaker:

oh, no,

Speaker:

you can't have

Speaker:

to the players, to the players.

Speaker:

I mean, still

Speaker:

by now, everyone else had also seen what she had wrote.

Speaker:

That pissed her off and her boyfriend as well, who even said that I should send my husband away too.

Speaker:

If we didn't allow spouses to come along anymore, to which I called him an entitled prick and plainly stated that I would no longer host the session anymore.

Speaker:

As long as he wanted to bring her along, the group is now torn into two camps.

Speaker:

Those who agree with me, who wanna skip the drama and just continue playing with or without her.

Speaker:

So am I the asshole for pretty much making it impossible for a group to continue the game?

Speaker:

Because I don't want the girlfriend in my flat

Speaker:

anymore.

Speaker:

Okay, here we go.

Speaker:

you're not the asshole.

Speaker:

You definitely could have gone about that better, but I, I, I get the anger.

Speaker:

I get the pettiness.

Speaker:

Of where you're coming from.

Speaker:

I'm petty.

Speaker:

but you definitely could have just been like told the boyfriend, like, Hey look, I came in the group chat.

Speaker:

Uh, unfortunately she was saying some kind of rude stuff about me and I'm not really comfortable having her in my house, blah, blah, blah.

Speaker:

You went a different route and you know, you were angry.

Speaker:

I get that.

Speaker:

That's fine.

Speaker:

But yeah, she's definitely a hundred percent guaranteed grade a asshole.

Speaker:

Uh there's no.

Speaker:

There's no way around that.

Speaker:

And it sounded like the group wasn't that divided, uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but you said half of the group agrees with him and the other half wants to skip the drama, AKA, fuck that guy's character figure out a way to get him out of there.

Speaker:

Continue playing without him.

Speaker:

I agree.

Speaker:

A hundred percent with

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

cuz it sounds like you got for the most part, a good party and an asshole and his asshole girlfriend just.

Speaker:

There's D D and D is, uh, an open world.

Speaker:

there's so many things you could do to rectify.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Just write him the fuck out of there, man.

Speaker:

Sean, is so much of a better person than I am because he sympathized for the boyfriend.

Speaker:

But I think the girls or the, the person that who was, uninvited them, I think they're not in the wrong at all.

Speaker:

Like I would have that same reaction if I'm.

Speaker:

Providing the space.

Speaker:

If I'm providing the venue and all, you gotta do show up and kind of be respectful of my space, you don't have the authority to talk shit

Speaker:

like that.

Speaker:

You know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

Like, especially if you're gonna come there with an attitude, like all pissy and shit already, cuz you're not, you know, it is not your vibe.

Speaker:

Just say just, just stay quiet,

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

know,

Speaker:

or,

Speaker:

or,

Speaker:

just get an

Speaker:

Uber.

Speaker:

You're a fucking adult

Speaker:

Express that explicitly just to your boyfriend, that you're not digging the vibes and Hey, maybe this is the last time I'll go there.

Speaker:

Type of shit.

Speaker:

He ain't got no right to fucking talk shit and call, call the husband a creep.

Speaker:

Like that's, that's messed up.

Speaker:

That's totally

Speaker:

outta line.

Speaker:

Like,

Speaker:

Especially like, I know how much work goes into DMing, a campaign,

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

it is

Speaker:

work.

Speaker:

hours.

Speaker:

It is hours and hours, and then to host as well, like to provide snacks, drinks, you know, like, things like that.

Speaker:

Welcome people into your home.

Speaker:

I'm not gonna lie if it was me, I would probably have the same reaction and I'm not, and that is the, adult reaction, cuz it probably isn't like Sean said.

Speaker:

Probably could have handled it, maybe talking to the boyfriend or talking to her directly and being like, Hey, really?

Speaker:

Didn't appreciate what you said.

Speaker:

if you wanna respect me and my place and my husband, you're welcome to come, but if you can't do that, then you know what fuck you

Speaker:

. Yeah,

Speaker:

and then if, talking through her doesn't work, then maybe being addressing to the boyfriend cuz You know, calling her out in front of everyone is a bit shitty, but I, I,

Speaker:

I understand where it's coming from.

Speaker:

I understand

Speaker:

yeah, I

Speaker:

Dicey situation.

Speaker:

That's what

Speaker:

it is.

Speaker:

damnit

Speaker:

so

Speaker:

John.

Speaker:

so,

Speaker:

just roll

Speaker:

with it,

Speaker:

Sean.

Speaker:

Damn

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

there we go.

Speaker:

So I think we really all agree.

Speaker:

He is not necessarily the asshole.

Speaker:

You could have maybe handled it better, but she is a hundred percent the asshole.

Speaker:

And I think the boyfriend is a secondary asshole in turn

Speaker:

Naturally.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

sure.

Speaker:

Awesome.

Speaker:

Well, with that outta the way, we will go to a break and then we will come back with some nice guys content.

Speaker:

Mm,

Speaker:

Uh,

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

And we are back like I said, we're trying to diversify a little bit.

Speaker:

so I've decided to go to some other subreddits and in the next coming weeks, uh, months, we'll start doing some other subreddits as well.

Speaker:

But today we are gonna be starting with our slash nice guys where self-proclaimed nice.

Speaker:

Guys are always man Childs and douches who mistake being spineless empathetic for being quote unquote, nice

Speaker:

most post feature men, but posts, of anyone who fit.

Speaker:

The nice guy archetyped are allowed.

Speaker:

This lighthearted subreddit is for fun.

Speaker:

cringy images, not a subreddit for showcase general acts of misogyny or for debating gender roles.

Speaker:

I don't know why that's added in, but that must have been a problem

Speaker:

at some point.

Speaker:

so with the first story, there is a text conversation between a man named Richard on what I, what appears to be Bumble.

Speaker:

it looks like the Bumble color, so we're gonna assume it's Bumble or something

Speaker:

like that.

Speaker:

I apologize, uh, audience, I was, Dating my wife right before the internet dating phase.

Speaker:

So I have no idea what any of the interfaces look like.

Speaker:

I never got to swipe and I'm not saying I wish I could, but me and my wife talk about like, man, we missed out on like a huge part of pop, like of like culture, because you know, we were already cuffed up at that point, but.

Speaker:

you did not miss out on much as someone who experienced the online dating

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

what my friends say.

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

It's a hell hole.

Speaker:

And, uh, luckily I met my girlfriend in person,

Speaker:

yeah, I I was gonna say I've been married since I was 23 and I've skipped that shit completely.

Speaker:

And I'm in my thirties already.

Speaker:

I have met.

Speaker:

like multiple friends get serious relationships through it.

Speaker:

So it works sometimes when the guys are not crazy.

Speaker:

oh, for sure.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I'm not saying, I'm not saying it's a,

Speaker:

it's a,

Speaker:

a bad way to meet.

Speaker:

It's just

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

terrible me.

Speaker:

It's a slog, it's a slog through, hundreds of hundreds of terrible people, both ways.

Speaker:

Uh so, we have a, some sort of message conversation between Richard and, the user going by the name of, Chiai Suzuki.

Speaker:

Speaker:

Wait, wait.

Speaker:

That message was spent was sent, uh, August

Speaker:

Speaker:

This next message was October 12th, 2021.

Speaker:

And the next message is from December 1st, 2021.

Speaker:

Hey, do you wanna do some video chat stuff with me for fun?

Speaker:

I don't wanna push you to meet anymore, LOL, but we can still do some casual things together if you're into it.

Speaker:

Hey, can we just video call sometimes and you

Speaker:

watch

Speaker:

me come.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

I'm actually kind of

Speaker:

reading it

Speaker:

that's kind of what she says.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Jesus cries.

Speaker:

Richard, your father, would've called you a waste of his gist.

Speaker:

If you saw what you're doing here.

Speaker:

Holy

Speaker:

moly

Speaker:

Oh, my God, I don't understand what going through these people had.

Speaker:

Like, if, if she hasn't

Speaker:

responded to you

Speaker:

in months

Speaker:

before, in months,

Speaker:

it's been probably almost a year at this point like, I don't, it says today after, after of the next one.

Speaker:

So I don't know when that was, but I'm gonna assume it was probably like.

Speaker:

It was this month when I, when I looked at the subreddit.

Speaker:

So, it's been, you know, six months probably.

Speaker:

And, he is just still trying to make her, watch him come out of,

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

you know what this reminds me of this is showing my age back in high school.

Speaker:

Right?

Speaker:

Every time like a guy would just go up to a girl and be like, Hey, where's my hug.

Speaker:

And then the girl, and this is a running joke between me and my wife all the time.

Speaker:

Cuz I say it to her all the time, too.

Speaker:

And as a joke, and then, you know, most of the time the girl's like, oh no, I don't wanna hug you.

Speaker:

And then the guys always quit to first to respond.

Speaker:

Be like, I don't wanna hug you anyway.

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

ugly.

Speaker:

Anyway,

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

type of shit.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

It gives me this type of

Speaker:

vibe.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

It's just so disturbing that they're so obsessed with these people.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Like take a hint dude.

Speaker:

You're not a nice guy.

Speaker:

She clearly didn't want to just fuck.

Speaker:

So move on and find someone that does.

Speaker:

I don't know,

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

First off he tries to flex be like, I'm too old for you, but I'm down to fuck.

Speaker:

And then the second

Speaker:

flex is I got

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

house to myself.

Speaker:

So you are old and you don't have a house

Speaker:

to yourself all

Speaker:

wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, What if he is married,

Speaker:

oh,

Speaker:

Even more red

Speaker:

flags,

Speaker:

I didn't even make that, but you, yeah, you're right.

Speaker:

He's older.

Speaker:

So like what if he, yeah, what if he has a family and then like that's the only time.

Speaker:

No for sure.

Speaker:

For sure.

Speaker:

He's living with his parents or he has

Speaker:

roommates.

Speaker:

He's a fucking 40 year old and there's no fence, you know, sometimes life comes at you like that, but given this man's attitude, you can only imagine, he's there for a reason.

Speaker:

That's fair.

Speaker:

I'd call him a bigger Dick, but he'd probably take that as a compliment.

Speaker:

So gonna do that.

Speaker:

he's small Dick Richard.

Speaker:

Uh, so to finish off the episode, we have, an absolutely delusional man, on Reddi.

Speaker:

So the, user posts I have come, I have.

Speaker:

Well, he says I have came, but I think he means I have come

Speaker:

Hmm.

Speaker:

I have come to accept the fact that all women in the world came together and agreed to never date me

Speaker:

specifically.

Speaker:

So that is the, that is the title,

Speaker:

already delusional that, many women are thinking about him.

Speaker:

yeah, I was gonna say, you're not even on that many.

Speaker:

You're not on any women's radar.

Speaker:

My guy.

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

You're not even registering at all.

Speaker:

Oh, he might be registered

Speaker:

as something

Speaker:

else.

Speaker:

as something else.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

10 yards away from school.

Speaker:

You cannot

Speaker:

God, I hope it's farther than 10 yards.

Speaker:

Um, goes on to say, this sounds crazy, but you're not me.

Speaker:

You don't understand what I've been through.

Speaker:

Looking back at my relat relationship history, and I have only been in two relationships.

Speaker:

They were both pretty short and shitty.

Speaker:

Why did you

Speaker:

laugh like that?

Speaker:

Oh man.

Speaker:

The whole world is against me cuz two failed relationships.

Speaker:

Wayne

Speaker:

fucking

Speaker:

they were . They were both pretty short and shitty, like two months at the most.

Speaker:

And I have been rejected so many times I just stopped trying.

Speaker:

I don't bother anymore.

Speaker:

I am stuck making.

Speaker:

I also came to accept that my queen, whom I haven't met yet is dead because seeing how many women are getting killed by serial killers

Speaker:

and their abusive boyfriends slash husbands, my soulmate is probably among the dead.

Speaker:

Geez,

Speaker:

fucked.

Speaker:

that took a turn.

Speaker:

I can't force a woman.

Speaker:

See me as her future hubby, maybe after I die and get reincarnated.

Speaker:

get lucky.

Speaker:

It's easy to see why the two relationships were short

Speaker:

and shitty.

Speaker:

John, go ahead.

Speaker:

I'm not trying to be judgemental or anything, but the fact that you trying to refer to serial killers, Kind of makes me think that there's a making of one at the moment.

Speaker:

This is for sure his, super villain origin

Speaker:

story.

Speaker:

I was

Speaker:

I was gonna

Speaker:

say the same, like this is giving me creeper vibes and I do

Speaker:

not like it.

Speaker:

it is so telling of guys like this, that they outwardly blame people, instead of looking inwardly to realize maybe there's something I can change about myself

Speaker:

to make my relationships work, or even, you know, like improve myself to make these relationships work.

Speaker:

They just get so self-defeating

Speaker:

and are.

Speaker:

Convince the world is out to get them, but I'm here to tell you the world sucks for everyone.

Speaker:

And, uh, you just gotta, you gotta try and improve what you can do with yourself and with your own life.

Speaker:

And once you do that, I can almost promise you that relationship will come.

Speaker:

But until you do that, I think you're gonna be a sad, sad, lonely man.

Speaker:

My

Speaker:

guy,

Speaker:

at first, when it first started, I was like, okay, this might just be like a fake story, like for a joke or whatever.

Speaker:

And then it took the turn and I was like, oh no, I think this is of a real sad, person

Speaker:

It gets significantly

Speaker:

real at

Speaker:

the end.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

wait a second.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

It no longer felt like a joke.

Speaker:

And I was like, oh no.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

uh, I, I do want to, quote the top comment in that screenshot.

Speaker:

Uh, it is, from what I can only assume is, a woman, she says, yeah, I know I was at the all female woman meeting where we decided collectively just to avoid

Speaker:

who took down the minutes for that meeting.

Speaker:

I wanna see the

Speaker:

participants.

Speaker:

please send those in.

Speaker:

That was, uh,

Speaker:
