It’s said that 25 years of age is the point at which millennials face what’s known as the “quarter life crisis.”
While all sorts of propaganda is disseminated on social media suggesting what should and shouldn’t be done at this point in life...it’s all bullshit. Now I don’t have any answers or turnkey solutions on the matter. Nobody does…and that’s exactly why the propaganda is bullshit.
I can, however, explain the situation as I see it as a 25 year old while my peers struggle, cope with, and try to understand this truly invented and imaginary crisis.
Personal Belief #1:
When it comes to looks, women peak at age 25.
This is why propaganda on the matter resonates most with females belonging to said age cohort. This is not to say that some of them aren’t attractive. I know plenty of attractive 23-25 year olds. In fact, I do my best to tell them so but I only do so in real life. I will never tell a woman she’s attractive over social media regardless of age due to personal belief #2.
Personal Belief #2:
Social media is nothing but an ego caressing machine and false confidence generator for young women.
Likes and all other forms of digital interaction give them the sense that “they still got it” when it comes to looks and delivers a digital "you go girl" for whatever their sharing over social media (no matter how trite it may be). But...a perusal through their old photos all too frequently serves as evidence that they’ll never look as good as they did when they were 18 or even 21.
The art of telling a woman she looks good is dead and social media has killed it.
The art of making a woman feel sexy, however, is still very much alive but that’s a topic for another day. The point is that digital ego caressing only obscures the sad reality of fading looks.
Attraction, however, will remain a “constant” in the equation of life and this constant tends to favor men in the long term versus women.
NOTE: I've got nothing against women. I do, however, have a problem with women blind to what our generation is up against. There are young women who favor the ideals of feminism while simultaneously believing the lies (what I'd call "things are going to be okay" lies) and other falsehoods fed to them by boomer propaganda outlets.
...All while failing to realize the reality of gender blind class warfare that will plague our generation and subsequent generations for years to come.
Personal Belief #3:
If you’re a single 25 year old male you are at the lowest point in your life.
However, things can only go up for you...if you have what it takes to make that happen.
If you don’t, you’ll stay right where you’re at till you’re dead.
That being said, if you’re a 25 year old male...“don’t stop thinking about tomorrow” because when it comes to your female peers of the same age... “yesterday’s gone.”
Here’s what I mean by that. As previously stated, your female peers will never retain their youthful beauty so their looks of yesteryear are gone. Accept that they are already at their peak it or past it.
For women looking to settle down and find a husband at this age, “yesterday’s gone” for them in the sense that they are likely to have left behind whatever’s in their past...that past of their prime. This may mean a history of promiscuity, a former love that turned awry, a series of events that didn't turn out as expected, or anything else important concerning marriage and what should be the development of a healthy relationship that precedes it.
If they are not looking to settle down, "yesterday's gone" in the sense that they're marching towards something other than a man...which is okay. Remember, that is their right.
Here's where it's going to get difficult for my generation and each following generation regardless of gender...
I have spent a large part of my youth privately studying how the elite think and what may be the direction of Western Civilization. That being said, I can tell you that the gender wage gap will sooner or later be brought to parity.
However, the vanguards of feminism will not accomplish this and neither will democratic politicians that give lip service to the issue and make attempts at passing "equal pay" legislation in the name of the democratic principle of equality.
THIS OBJECTIVE IS A CORPORATE OBJECTIVE.
I repeat, the objective is to pay women the same as men is a corporate objective BUT THIS WILL NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED BY PAYING WOMEN MORE OR INSTITUTING POLICIES THAT ENSURE FAIR PAYMENT AND/OR FAIR TREATMENT OF WOMEN.
The gender wage gap will be eliminated by "gender blind" economic policies designed to bring the American standard of living down a couple notches regardless of gender.
Think about it...
Why would a CEO care about paying women more so they can make the same as men because it's "fair" or just? Furthermore, why would a female CEO care about paying women more because it's "fair" when doing so will only imperil her position as CEO since such actions do not serve the interests of shareholders and the bottom line?
The struggle for equality between the sexes is nothing compared to the struggle between the "haves and have nots" in America.
If anything, pitting poor young men against poor young women in the name of "feminism" or correcting the gender gap only serves the benefit of corporate interests that posses the power to do so AND CORPORATE INTERESTS WILL DO SO BUT ON THEIR TERMS WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE BOTTOM LINE.
Men and women will be paid the same by paying both genders...especially young people...less over time.
A corporation ruled by shareholder capitalism will never sacrifice a quarterly dividend to elevate a woman's pay on the principle of fairness.
Democratic Politicians:"We need to make sure that women get paid the same as men. It's only fair."
Corporate America:"Don't worry...we've got it covered because..."
-If you are a male worker you are expendable and you will be paid as little as possible while being squeezed for every ounce of productivity possible.
-If you are a female worker you are expendable and you will be paid as little as possible while being squeezed for every ounce of productivity possible.
It's the arguably the most genius corporate ploy of all time.
However...as someone who will probably be employed by a corporation for a good part of my life, I accept this. I will never contest corporate authority or "bite the hand that feeds me" because the only thing I care about is doing my job to the best of my abilities with as little conflict and problems possible. I don't care about climbing the soul crushing corporate ladder to "prove something."
I have nothing to prove because my entire life I have been a natural leader with a penchant for innovation who more or less does what he's told. If I'm asked to take on more responsibilities and lead I will do so. If I'm asked to stay where I'm at and slave away humbly I will do so too.
The only thing a job does for me is give me the opportunity to have a wife and kids...something very important to me.
In fact, when asked Corporate America's favorite Miss America question:
"Where do you see yourself in 20 years?"
I started getting offers when I changed my answer to "successfully providing for my wife and kids" from "working as the VP of a company" or "doing XYZ in this industry."
...a decision I made that arguably went against everything I was told as a child.
Unfortunately, it's becoming increasingly difficult to raise a family and the warning signs of class warfare emerging in the present day serve as evidence of this.
That being said...if you're a single 25 year old male and you are looking to marry a high caliber woman with:
-Wife material attributes
-Natural maternal instincts
It may take you 5 years. It may even take as long as 10 years...maybe 15. Regardless of how long it takes, I can assure you that you'll be able to swoop a 25 year old "wife material" babe in her prime when you are at age 35 if you have what it takes to endure.
And trust me...that's a fact of life women ages 23-26 do not want to admit. There's nothing a woman hates more than a younger, more attractive woman. Don't even get me started on what they think about foreign women...
The fact of the matter is that if a man commits himself to personal evolution and simply "takes care of himself" he can remain attractive and pull women 25 years of age and younger when he's 35.
