    It's pretty common sense if you look at the big picture. Assuming you're not a trust fund kid, the dollar you're spending today would be two dollars tomorrow if you had invested it. Obviously it's an oversimplification but the point is mainly you're hampering your future wealth by spending capital that could have been invested instead. Let that snowball for ~10 years and you could probably travel on the dividends.

    All of this is of course assuming you found an investment with decent returns, there is no recession/depression, or nuclear apocalypse. Alternatively, #yolo

      Yes, compound investing is the key to becoming a rich old man. Then maybe my brats will be able to enjoy a higher standard of living, if I ever end up having some. Frick that shit. The son will probably come out gay, the daughter a mudshark. By the time I'm old enough for it to matter we'll have UBI or the whole rotten system will have collapsed.

        I'm more or less in the same boat. I'm in my early 30s making pretty decent money. I just keep upskilling to grow those paychecks. I'm probably still going to retire later if I hadn't gone on all those trips throughout my life, but I don't regret spending a single cent.

      >Just keep squandering your youth and life so you can live better in a decade bro
      Frick right off with that.

      +35 here. I coomed over SEA and Brazil while being basically destitute and sleeping on the streets sometimes. I now have a nice job and good money and could travel anywhere now with comfort

      DO IT IN YOUR TWENTIES

      It all hinges on energy. You can have all the money in the world but it won't give you youth. I have a mate with my similar age/money but he never travelled. Every time I regale him with my cooming stories he begs me to get on a plane to Thailand and recreate those stories.

      He's too thick to understand I'm not the same person anymore. I don't have the bloody patience to pretend to be interested in a hollow bawd to frick her later, I don't have the energy to chat and engage every traveller in a backpacker to make friends and start an awesome buddy group and I surely don't have the back to sleep in a backpackers anymore.

      Moreover, I knew I had the time to waste, the body to drink/fight/frick and start a real-life in my thirties, you dont want to wait until you travel on a mid life crisis or try to reinvent yourself on your forties, do you?

      This is what terrifies me. I'm a full time travellee now, and I keep SighSee, but I can see that basically all of what I enjoy doing requires a high level of fitness and energy and a body without any creeks or pains. Is this whole 'less energy' thing avoidable? If I keep REALLY fit, will I be ok into much later age?

        Yeah, staying fit will extend the time before age debilitates you. I didn’t exercise in my 20’s and felt the effects in my late 20’s starting with back pain, hip trouble after walking a few miles, and less energy. I counteracted it by making up for lost time, and two days ago I walked 15 miles and then did another 12 the next day with no trouble.

        I'm also still young and SighSee but I think if you keep taking care of your body, you can go really old and still be capable. I've done alot of hiking trails, and there are always these old 50+ year old guys who seem to have it even easier than me. That's just because they have been doing it for so long. Age certainly slows you but people talk like there's a cutoff at a certain point where you just can't do certain things anymore, that's just them being lazy and making excuses for themselves.

        In regards to losing energy as you get older:
        1) 80% of people are overweight or obese, so they can’t answer your question accurately.
        2) Shit will happen and blind side you out of no where. I don’t wish that for you or anyone, but it’s the way things often go, and the result is worse physical health. For me it was an adverse reaction to antibiotics that stripped my feeling of youth from me, if only i had known, but we never know what that thing time or place is for each of us

        Keep one very important thing in mind about your body: your energy levels are mental, and you drain your mental energy the less you sleep.
        In your 20s you think you're hot shit for staying up until 5am doing dumb shit but believe me, no matter how fit you are and how healthy you eat, you will feel the effects into your late 20s.
        Don't be a fricking moron and stop the gay ass meme that sleep is for the weak. Our body sadly needs it, and if you ignore that need the sleep debt will accumulate (whoever says sleep debt doesn't exist is fricking coping) and you WILL slowly lose your precious mental energy over it.

          It's simple to stay fit and maintain energy for longer, although it is not easy. Mediterranean diet, three days a week of exercise and mobility every day (at least 10-12k steps, some cardio mixed in there), sleep hygiene, drink plenty of water, avoid sugar, avoid alcohol, avoid greasy food (fat is fine depending on the source, obviously salmon is different than deep fried twinkies). If it's too hard to give up one of those things then give yourself a cheat day to keep it in moderation. Go to the doctor once a year for a tune-up (unfortunately sometimes you might be limited by genetics, like high cholesterol or whatever, in which case they can give more specific advice or medications to help).

          The one everyone sleeps on though is cognitive health. Do mental aerobics. Talk to others, read books, do crosswords and sudoku puzzles, have healthy hobbies that aren't just buying shit (think chess, learning instruments, even dancing is great for strengthening neural connections). Reduce screen-time and time spent doing mindless bullshit. Try to have a job that is challenging but not insanely stressful / will follow you home and boost cortisol (unfortunately this one we might not have as much control over, but if you are killing yourself at work and it's taking up too much headspace you might seriously consider taking a paycut for not only quality of life, but longevity of life).

          [...]
          Also listen to this. Just because you make it to late 30s and are more youthful than your age-ridden friends because you did all the aforementioned shit, does not mean you will fit in with people in their 20s doing stupid bullshit because they still have time on their side. Be self-aware and live with dignity.

          >Be self-aware and live with dignity.
          I know of multiple men who choose to live the bachelor lifestyle into their 50's. They happen to still be sleeping with women in their 20's, just like ever since they were their age. But they still somehow inspire pity.

          And men who live self-indulgent lifestyles DO NOT age well. Constant drinking makes them look like shit, they're always out of money because girls will only touch their aged wieners in exchange for it one way or another.

          You either live out that phase of your life in your 20's, or you missed out. It is NOT the same trying to pull it off when you're older. Usually it points to some gravely unmet emotional need. Like a mid-life crisis.

          this is an important one I've noticed. if you're isolated, I.e. you work remotely or play vidya and never leave the house, it's easy for social skills to deteriorate, we can become more awkward, neurotic, and prone to mental illnesses. My proof is anecdotal, seeing many adults becoming shadows of their former self's with increased isolation, and also the scientific fact that people who know a second language have lower rates of alzheimers.

        Sort of off topic but the phrase "carbon footprint" itself was invented and popularized by oil companies shifting the blame for pollution onto normal people. I wouldn't be surprised if leisure flying returned in 2-3 decades to being an upper class luxury like it was originally.

        to add on this I think traveling for the right reasons and for the right people will make the difference.

        200 people can watch the same movie, play same game, or hear same speech and hear 200 different versions of what they saw/heard. Everyone gets different experiences

        If you go to just cum everywhere or just take instagram photos to get clout its pointless, you can do that anywhere.

        If you go to try to actually get culture shock and expand your mind of what you thought the world is, it is worth the ROI.

        Some places are so unique and different (japan) it's the only place in the world like it. 20's or 30's it doesn't matter when you do it, as long as you can do it without having to worry about career stalling

            Remember that at its core, South America is a western region. Sure, way poorer and dangerous but still with a western mentality.

Some people don't like that but other travelers crave for it. Bottom line, you're going to a cheaper and more dangerous Spain/Florida, not Mars.

            This works the same regarding safety. Similarly to any big city, there are no-go areas and good ones. It's just that the stakes are multiplied by 10. Prepare to find areas in Buenos Aires/Sao Paulo that are basically Zurich or Oslo, but go to the wrong ones and you are in Mogadishu. It's your job to be aware of those hidden lines searching online, talking to locals, etc. I'm most cities it will be easier such as "north good, south bad" but there are places such as Rio/Bogota that are infamous for having favelas right next to safe areas.

I had to haggle for every single purchase, it was exhausting. South America is the polar opposite: everyday people will be nice to you, but cross one of those imaginary lines and you are suddenly in a raffle for a free mugging/kidnapping or worse.

      Or just don't be an out of shape useless frick and you'll have plenty of energy to travel a lot in your 30's, 40's, and maybe even 50's. Spend some time on less popular hiking trails and you'll be surprised how many older people you'll see mogging the young people.
      "The injury" is a cope to just give up most of the time. I'm 37 and have had two broken bones, several fractured, hamstring injury, neck and back issues from being rear-ended by some old frick doing 60 in a 35 when I was stopped. Yea it all acts up and hurts like a b***h sometimes but modern medicine is amazing and I push through it to keep doing what I want. A lot of those older people have probably had "the injury" as well. Willpower goes a long fricking way.

        No matter how you put it you will frick more easily in your twenties unless you have insane aging genetics and look like you are actually twenty five at thirty five, something like Brad Pitt. Most of the guys who claim they are younger actually look their age or worse. I've seen these types at hostels, etc. They think they still got it and that they are above creepy forty year olds with no social awareness, but they're one step away from that. Live your life now. You can still frick a lot in your thirties, but you will not have the same experience, the same way you will never relive your teenage years and if you pissed them away you got to cut your losses and move on.

    20s is more fun since you have high energy and can associate with other youth, 30s is more fulfilling since you understand the world more and can appreciate the freedom you have and experiences you are able to enjoy.

    The most valuable thing you can ever make are memories, not money. However you need the money to make the memories, which means you need to balance your goals.

    Turning 31 in a few months and planning a vacation. I've travelled a lot at a young age. Right now I have about 5 weeks of vacation just piled up to use. Because I've been able to travel the World at such a young age there's no desire to really want to go anywhere so I've been racking my brain these past few weeks trying to think of what to do or where to go. I would say though that you're missing out massively if you start travelling in your 30's. I would say 20's is the sweet spot because those were the most fun times I had and I can't see myself doing any of those trips again as I get older. I think travelling with children is stupid and should be avoided. They won't enjoy a bit of it unless it's something they want to do.

        I think you missed the point of my post anon. I'm saying that someone who chooses to only travel in their 30's has missed out on a number of great experiences in their 20's that they will never get to experience again. Instead of having saved up people should enjoy those trips and experiences. The only downside is the one I'm facing wherein I'm struggling to find the motivation to travel since I've visited everywhere I've wanted to already.

    Normally, I think the whole “do X in your 20s and Y in your 30s” meme is moronic, but in this particular case I do think it’s probably true IF you’re unmarried, childless, and have the money. Leisure travel is kind of pointless until you’re in your late 20s/early 30s at least or until you have some money. Travel for the military or travel to traffick guns into 3rd world countries are different stories.

    I don't understand this advice at all. What is the dichotomy? You can travel and work. When you're in your 20s backpacking, camping, etc are all more appealing so it's easier to afford anyway. I work a professional job but I've been to Japan, HK, Thailand, Turkey, Italy, Germany, Holland, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan. Doesn't feel like I'm having to 'miss out'.

    To be fair, I am delaying relocating to Taiwan on the gold card scheme for a couple of years (when I'll be in my early 30s) but that's driven by other timelines.

      You can travel and work if you're from a developed country, have a job that requires some qualification and have cash to spare.
      A Western European has 5 weeks of holidays and if employed by the state or state-like enterprise they can take unpaid sabbaticals once or twice a decade.
      An American would need to be paid much more to do the same (and they are actually paid more), as they have fewer holidays and days off, trips of multiple months will require him to have more cash saved upfront because things like healthcare can be tied to your employment.
      A Japanese can consider himself lucky if he can take two additional days off after Golden Week or Obon because being away from your company for long means that you're not important to the company and therefore unsocial and expendable.

    My advice is to travel whenever possible and as much as possible. Money you invest for the future can not buy memories or experiences from the past. As each year goes on, every destination becomes progressively more and more soulless due to gentrification, overtourism, shops closing, buildings being demolished, or political efforts to "clean up the area" in general. In the future, places you want to visit can become relatively inaccessible for tourists due to political tensions, wars, or natural disasters. When you are in your late 20s/early 30s, you are going to be bogged down with work commitments, social/romantic/childcare commitments, plans to buy/renovate a house, bills for rent/mortgage/insurance/taxes, plans to save for retirement, etc. Whereas in your late teens/early 20s, you generally have more freedom with your time and money and should take advantage of it while you still can.

    In your 20s you don’t mind slumming it in rotten little hostels and moving around in cramped rickety buses. You don’t have much to spend and it’s fine. You meet lots of other penniless wasters and have a blast.

    In your 30s you have more cash. You also have less tolerance for grotty accommodation. Also stuff that appealed to you when you were younger would now just be tragic. Which is why you went to those clubs etc in your 20s, anon, right? Picking up local cuties? Staying up until 5am drinking lager with buddies? Yes?

    40s and 50s seems to be peak these days. If you keep your fitness and health in check you can go anywhere and do anything and you have stacks of cash.

    60 plus is when you start slowing down and find cruising attractive.

    Don’t end up like my relative. Died in his 90s worth a million quid and had been within 20miles of his hometown for 99% of his life. Thought a day at the beach was good enough annual holiday. What a waste.

          Just a fact that most girls travel with family or their boyfriends and attractive girls typically don’t backpack in hostels solo. Not to mention the massive amount of single men of any age in any hostel making difficult for one on one time with a girl. Also there’s a growing proportion of women that aren’t attracted to men.
          Not saying it’s impossible at all but I’ve only ever heard of tall extroverted white dudes getting hostel pussy and they exaggerate anyways.
          Also this is coming from a dude who’s done the give them alcohol shit, if they don’t like you sober than they probably don’t like you tipsy.

    I'll tell you what i did.

    I started working right at 20 when I finished undergrad. I was always making reasonably good money, like 70-90k depending on the job. I started lifting and investing alot. 100k Net Worth by 24. I took some reasonable vacations, went out with friends, but didn't do the whole "travel the world thing". I also learned how to pull local chicks in town, basically had a great sex life my whole 20s without needed to get shitfaced or travel to Europe/Asia.

    Importantly, I realized that kids are not something that fit into my wants or goals in life either.

    Mid-late 30s now. I'm now married to a fantastic woman. We are a DINK (double income no kids), childfree couple. We are super rich, just from compounding interest. We both make 150k and own a nice place in a nice area. We are so financially free we can't even spend all our money. We travel a shit ton on first class, nice resorts, great food, etc. Sex life is awesome. We have a dog but hire a dog walker lol.

    I really feel like I'm living the dream, every stage of my life has been awesome. But i worked hard in my 20s and discovered myself - not from running away from my problems but by overcoming them.

    To summarize:

    - work early in your 20s. Start earning compound interest from a young age, you will be super wealthy later on.
    - everything in moderation. Spend some money and enjoy yourself but make sure that you save and invest.
    - learn about yourself, running away from your problems doesn't fix anything.
    - find a partner with similar goals and outlook
    -don't have kids (people have a hard time with this one. I dont judge people who have kids but for me personally im quite happy with our decision. And financially it is a huge burden)
    - basically have unlimited money in your 30s onwards to really enjoy travelling and life in general.

If you're thinking I have low test, I can tell you I've fricked loads of women, and I'd want kids, but I'm too selfish to settle somewhere for eighteen years to raise a kid. I think it becomes worthwhile if you have a son and they hit their teens as you can actually do cool stuff with them or guide them into prestigious careers, but all that responsibility, hard work, blah blah shit bores me to bits, and even if you do everything right your kid might just end up becoming such rotten fruit you might as well disown them. This is why back in the day they'd have frickload of kids, and that's only counting the lot that got past the childhood. Maybe one or two of them would be really good sort, rest of them would be rejects or flawed versions. People who bank on kids forget that most off spring are very LIKELY to be frick ups. Either none or something like ten is what I'd go for.

            Maybe because smart people don't want to create more suffering.

            Maybe. DINK couples are quite common at the higher IQ end of the spectrum (me and wife are both 120+). Being way smarter and more aware than average can suck. We also don't care about the future or anything else, ultimately all that matters is being happy in our own bubble of life. There's definitely a selfish gene in smarter people (and i dont say selfish as a bad thing). But we just don't care about the guilt tripping arguments (smart people need to reproduce for others benefit etc.)

          Children make people happy. They give life a purpose beyond mindless accumulation. What's going to happen to all your cash if you die in a car accident? What would it all have been for?

          Watching your kids grow up will be the joy of your life. If you deprive yourselves of this, you'll always have that "what if" in the back of your mind. There will always be that cognitive dissonance, and as you age you'll continually need reassurance that you did the right thing. Your wife certainly will. It is a derangement of nature to deprive a woman of the opportunity to be a mother, and immoral for you to lead such an impressionable creature down a path so detrimental to them.

          I'm sorry if I come off preachy, but it is the very definition of "unnatural" for healthy, fit, intelligent parents not to have children. The reason the world is so disordered today is that capable people are not having children, while human garbage multiplies like vermin.

          I can't shake the feeling you're a troll.

            You can always set up a will and give the money to someone. I don't see why this is a problem though, if you die you're dead and are unable to worry about this. Might as well be asking why live to then die.
            >Watching your kids grow up will be the joy of your life.
            Many things bring joy to your life. Humans have developed entire areas full of different forms of physical and mental activity that can be a lifelong journey. Having children is one of the most basic ones, but certainly not the only one.
            >It is a derangement of nature to deprive a woman of the opportunity to be a mother
            It is a derangement to be a naturalist. Humans in their "natural" state kill and rape to get what they want, but that doesn't make it right.
            Men have an intense beast-like desire to have sex no matter what, and women have an intense beast-like desire to breed, true, but they're both beast-like desires yet society only considers one to be harmful while the other one is celebrated.
            > it is the very definition of "unnatural" for healthy, fit, intelligent parents not to have children
            It is. There's no moral weight to unnatural things though, you're using a man-made machine to post this and it's not morally wrong to use it just because it's not part of nature.
            >The reason the world is so disordered today is that capable people are not having children
            Capable people can have "better" children, but we need to stop fetishizing financial success and "intelligence". Plenty of "smart" people are actually lacking empathy, resistance to adversity and living in the present, all necessary in a functional human society. Qualities "incapable" people tend to have and "capable" people tend to lose over time. Also, "capable" people are less likely to scrub toilets or break their back in a farm.

            This is a whole different discussion but we need to stop glorifying and moralizing nature.

              Playing the devil’s advocate is the surest way to ensure that nobody ever wants to talk to you again. Not only does it lead to bickering and unsettled questions, but it gives the other participant(s) no idea what you actually think, and so they learn nothing about you.

              When you die, you won't be able to take your precious money with you. I'd rather spend it while I can.

              Obviously, compound interest means that a dollar saved now will be worth several times that by the time I'm old. This analysis ignores the fact that a dollar spent now is worth infinitely more to me than in my 60's. I can't even think of what I'd spend it on at that age, given that any children of mine would probably be grown. Palliative care, maybe. More expensive negresses to abuse me in a nursing home.

              At $120k, I'm easily in the top 1% of incomes worldwide. That's more than enough for any man. Will I be able to live in the most expensive US suburbs? No, but that's ok. I'd rather live in a place where everyone isn't mentally ill. I could hunker down for a year and buy a Latin American penthouse. That's good enough for me.

              But there is weight to what is "natural." It's not some arbitrary bullshit people decided to make up one day. The concept of what is "natural" came about through a close observation of human nature over thousands of years.

              At the end of the day, you're an ape and you can't just turn off the instinctive need to have children, no more than you can will yourself into not feeling hungry.

              That's the problem with today's society. All these new ways of living, people thinking they know better than what's worked for thousands of years. And they wonder why everyone's so confused and unhappy.

              My mom worked at a nursing home for years. She hasn't met one "child-free" old lady who hasn't bitterly regretted it. It's sad what these women come to, in order to satisfy that need to give maternal affection. They get way too attached to other people's kids, their nephews or even randos they happen to see on a regular basis. They get upset when they're parted. When they're not around, they sit around yelling at the TV, or doing crossword puzzles. These women have nothing to live for. Is that what you want for your wife?

              You may make a distinction between you and r/childfree people, but you are ultimately falling for the same israeli propaganda, and even spreading it. Shame on you.

              What a sad life it must be for middle-aged people without children and without God. It's quite the worldview you have! The world is too terrible to bring children into it. We must console ourselves with endless working and spending, sucking, fricking, accumulating, cooming and consooming. What a sad way of looking at things. I want no part of it.

                NTA but feeling hungry is an elementary feeling that comes from your body requiring food.
                The natural, elementary feeling is not to have a kid, but to not be alone. Saying "wanting a kid to be raise and have him take care of me in my latter days" is akin to saying craving caviar is a natural feeling.Just look at how pets who are castrated and have never had kids live a perfectly happy life due to their masters taking care of their every physical and mental needs. Appeals to nature are fricking moronic when you don't know where nature stops and society starts.
                We did a lot of shit over the course of thousands of years that were backed off by literally nothing, were absolute shit takes and many people paid the price dearly for that. Case in point : fricking mercury and how it was used as a medicine from practically everything. They used to give fricking calomel to babies who would then tear their own skin due to the rashes they had, as the mercury literally melted their brains. So no, I don't think people "knew better".

                >My mom worked at a nursing home for years. She hasn't met one "child-free" old lady who hasn't bitterly regretted it.
                Most of these old women don't want babies they can lactate on. They just want company. The most reliable way to not be alone used to be having a family that could take care of you. They may attribute that, just like you do, to "maternal affection" because it's what obvious to them, but the core feeling is : they're alone.

                >israeli propaganda
                The israelites are precisely the kind of people that want you to believe that nature explains everything and that you should follow your compulsions like an animal without thinking twice about whether they are meaningful or not. Which was you're advocating, and there is nothing more nihilistic.

                Our instinct also makes us act violent around other people who we see as threats, and we also feel like raping women we find attractive, but we still manage to suppress those, because they are deemed inappropriate by the society we built.
                >no more than you can will yourself into not feeling hungry.
                Hunger is a basic need, breeding isn't. I get your point though, it's a human need.
                I am not saying it's wrong, but in the same way people manage their need to rape by jerking off, or the need to kill by hunting, there are other ways of managing the need to breed. It's not a moral imperative to blindly follow your ape instincts, it's just the default state and by no means represents a higher moral ground.
                >And they wonder why everyone's so confused and unhappy.
                People have always been unhappy and have always wondered why it is so. It certainly got way worse post Industrial revolution, but every generation has found a way to cope according to the era. Let's not forget people have been b***hing about the newer generations since the Greeks.

                >These women have nothing to live for.
                People are born with nothing to live for. Having children is one way to have something to live for, but it is not the only one. Refer to my previous post, I already mentioned this. People fill that void with work addictions, children, starting a business or a charity, joining a church, becoming pro-level at a sport, researching and discovering new things, documenting knowledge, creating music or stories, being the town's farmer, whatever.
                Hedonism certainly isn't a proper way of filling that void, but it's just as dumb as filling it with children because your ape mind didn't pull out.
                >The world is too terrible to bring children into it
                Even though I don't see the moral obligation in having children, self proclaimed "child-free" people are insufferable. Not having children does not make you morally superior, and it has never been a "good time" to raise children because the world always will be hostile. That doesn't mean people should stop having children, the whole reason all life still exists is because offspring can pull through and live sort of okay. The whole risk-averse attitude against children is a pretty bad argument against not having then.
                But that being said, it doesn't make having children the right moral choice either. Children aren't carbon copies of their parents, xoomers gave birth to zoomers and look at how bad zoomers are. I am repeating myself here but surely you can see why "capable" people don't necessarily make "capable" children, and how your definition of "capable" is incomplete and fails to define what a "desirable" person is. I mean, can you imagine a world ruled by pedantic, insufferable SighSee autists who get high scores in IQ and got a 7 figure net-worth from crypto?

      >find a partner with similar goals and outlook
      There is a woman I've tried to break up with multiple times because of a language barrier that's been present for the year we've known each other. For example, she doesn't know words like trousers, concept, potent, flammable, and she can't always pronounce them correctly either. She refused to just let the relationship slide. We are in our mid 20s, and lately I've felt trapped. The conversation aren't interesting, but she's the kindest women you'll ever meet, enough so that it's possible to get upset with her over it (you know how some people are clingy and want cuddles, but you want a break to be alone for a while?). We never fight, she does anything I ask her, but she has no interesting interests. All of which makes my mind's system 1 think, because of this lack of personal depth, less respect is deserved. It could be considered a bit incel-ish, I understand.

      I've told her I feel like I'm too young to make this kind of compensation, and that when I see others speaking without troubles, internally I am jealous and frustrated.

      Do you have any thoughts about all this? I am wondering if it's best to stop this relationship despite it being her biggest fear in life. Like is this a rare thing that men truly desire? An obedient, cute gf? It feels shameful to not value conversation and communication.

        If you're gonna make a judgement call on this, I hope you won't think that following what your heart tells you is the mean, selfish thing to do. I think it might be the kindest thing you do for both of you.

        Intimacy can only exist between equals. If you can't respect someone, you can't fulfill the desire for intimacy with them. And that means they can't with you. On a basic level, you'll never be happy with her.

        Two possibilities

        Maybe it would be kinder for you to let her go so that you can know for sure what you're looking for in a relationship.

Idk because I can't fully understand her language. But this makes her and I equal in a few ways. We both live in this small world that involves remote work, the gym, and hanging with each other, and our small number of friends.

        Damn this is literally the way i feel about my gf. She's very sweet, very nice, cares about me, fairly attractive, always wants sex etc. We are mid 20s.

        However she is just immature, has a minor lisp, and sounds like a 12 year old when she talks. She often doesnt get things the first time and i have to repeat myself. She often mumbles and i have to ask her to repeat herself.

        I love her but i have a hard time connecting with her. I want to break up but its gonna suck because i really have no reason to except i dont enjoy having a gf who is more like a daughter than a girlfriend.

        She also doesnt want kids. Im 50/50 but dont want to close the door for sure on that now. We had an abortion last year which i supported but i could see myself want kids in my 30s.

        If i was like 35 i could make things work out in our marriage but im not. I dont want to be settling in my mid 20s already. Is it selfish? On the other hand its nice having a girl to frick and do activities with.

        Any idea if i should break up and how to do it? She loves me alot and would be devastated. And online dating sucks ass although i can pull with some effort. But ideally id be with a more mentally mature woman.

          I'm the anon who started this sub thread. This same thought has crossed my mind many times. It makes it that much harder to break up cus you don't want to her this girl who's just like a daughter you're dating. Driving her around, cooking for her, making sure she's dressed well and will be warm enough before going out, teaching her how to open cans of food and window blinds... It makes you wonder if she'll be ok on her own because of the quality of life you provide

            Yes exactly. Shes such a sweetheart and even the thought of breaking her heart and seeing her sobbing and broken makes me really sad.

            I just cant really say the relationship is bad enough to break up. And she has a tight pussy and great boobs. But id be much happier with a girl whos more mature. These girls are like the trad girl meme but it kinda sucks to have that shy immature sweet girl tbh.

            Are you/your gf attractive? Are you planning on kids? Could you get another gf if you break up? Honestly the regular, no condom sex with her is enough to make me not break up alone.

            Did she fall into your lap at a time where you experienced nothing but rejection, or slight interest from fugly prostitutes, leaving you feeling desperate and lonely?

            Have you cheated on her because of these mixed emotions you feel?

            No not really. Ive always been able to get casual sex, but am not always active because i dont necessarily enjoy it. But at worst every 4-6 months when im single ill frick a tinder girl just to not get rusty.

            >Have you cheated on her because of these mixed emotions you feel?

              >But id be much happier with a girl whos more mature.
              wiener vs cognition. Hmm. This is a false dichotomy, but something for use to consider... if we ever snapped out of our decision paralysis. I'm waiting for an old 40+ year old boomer to explain his situation with this.
              >Are you/your gf attractive?
              Yes, we joke about being the king and queen of our gym with each other lol
              >Are you planning on kids?
              We are both mid 20s as well, so it's way too early for that, but we both want kids.
              >Could you get another gf if you break up?
              Yes, but I'd hold off on it unless I met the girl of my dreams - a really driven, career enjoyer, mommy gf with great English and communication skills. It's too hard to get rid of mediocre and below tier women. I also want to solo travel for 2 months this year, so being in a stable relationship isn't really what I'm focused on now.

              >Honestly the regular, no condom sex with her is enough to make me not break up alone
              I bet that's great, I've been missing that a bit. My gf isn't on pills or an IUD because she's a like the trad gf too, and it doesnt seem right to change her natural hormones for cooming.

                Thats what i want too. I thought my current gf was like this, she is doing her masters and has alot of money in her investment account. But ended up being a total child despite also being career and finance focused.

                >My gf isn't on pills or an IUD because she's a like the trad gf too, and it doesnt seem right to change her natural hormones for cooming.

                Yeah fair enough. I dont want her on birth control pills either. We did it raw and I pulled out, but thats why she ended up getting the abortion lol. Pretty dumb of us but whatever. She is still fine with just pullout.

                Do you consider your gf mediocre despite being attractive? What do you think the odds are of you actually breaking up with her? How long have you been together? Are you american?

                Its funny we like the exact same girl and are in the same situation. No experience in this world is unique i guess.

                Yes would like some old people to weigh in on this too.

                I guess I've been lucky then? We don't use any protection 2 days before she expects her period, and I pull out. She refuses to take plan b so I've stopped chancing it at any other period phase. I would've died being a 25 yo daddy. That time must've been stressful for both of you... Does she ever get sad about it? Was it easy to get done?

                >Do you consider your gf mediocre despite being attractive?
                Yeah, mostly cus she has really lame interests. Recently she was talking on and on about a friend she had several years ago, and her eating habits. Without much grace, I told her I didn't care about her friend eating meat 5 years ago. I apologized after cus I'm weak for her.

                >What do you think the odds are of you actually breaking up with her?
                I've tried 5 times in the past 8 months... if I leave the country for 2 months alone, above 50%, but that's a coward way to do it... if she just accepted it the 1st or second time, it would've been over, but we always end up at my place together.

                >How long have you been together?
                We are the same human in the same relationship. 1.2 years.

                I was being dumb. I would get drunk and not clean my dick properly in between sex. Also i think being uncircumcized catches more cum. Im more careful now. I dont think pullout is that risky if done properly.

                >Does she ever get sad about it? Was it easy to get done?

                Not really sad now. She was definitely sad when it happened but doesnt really talk about it much anynore. She doesnt want kids so she didnt feel that bad, it was necessary for her. She always said she would get an abortion if she got pregnant and its exactly what she did. She might regret it when shes childless and 40 and changes her mind. Hopefully not.

                It wasnt that hard to get done. She took the abortion pill (different than Plan B). It was super painful, basically just pisses out the fetus into the toilet. She cried alot during it too.

                Being a child shes a big baby for pain. So cried like a baby and unncessarily whined alot like all pain during the whole abortion. That said its a tough situation so i was sympathetic.

                >I've tried 5 times in the past 8 months... if I leave the country for 2 months alone, above 50%, but that's a coward way to do it...

                I hope you can finally do it. Im hoping my gf does a co-op abroad so that i can do the cowards way of breaking up too because shes gone to another country.

                >We you her first relationship

                Nope. Had 2 other relationships, one for a year one for a few months. And plenty of other casual sex. Is it your first?

                You're probably canadian like me since we are the same person. You probably live in my building in Toronto.

                Sorry, I meant to ask if she was ever in a relationship before? I wasn't my gfs first bf but her first lay. I've had many gfs, but I'm beginning to slow down. I don't have the energy to sex flirt with women anymore. It's also really juvenile imo.

                Yep, I live near you.

                >I guess a doctor prescribed the pill after a consultation? How far along was she?

                Yes. She did a test at home, then went to the doctor. The doctor did an ultrasound to confirm she was pregnant then prescribed the pills. Unlike a surgical abortion where she has to go to a clinic to remove the fetus. With the medical abortion its just a pill taken at home and she passes out the fetus into the toilet.

                She was 8 weeks pregnant. Medical can only be done before 10 weeks. After that it needs to be surgical removed.

                Personally im kind of amoral and dont really give a shit but i guess its up to each person. We just agreed on abortion beforehand. She is the trad meme but hates kids. Which i may want in the future.

                >Sorry, I meant to ask if she was ever in a relationship before? I wasn't my gfs first bf but her first lay. I've had many gfs, but I'm beginning to slow down. I don't have the energy to sex flirt with women anymore. It's also really juvenile imo.

                Yes she had one previous relationship. They were together for like 2 years. So one body before me. Again the trad meme but it actually isnt as great as /misc/ virgins say. Im at 15? Something like that.

                Yeah, we are getting old 🙁
                Personally i"d be fine just staying single and fricking 20 year olds non stop till im 70. We will see though.

                When would you try another relationship if you ended it now at 25 y/o and went to travel?

                Are you Chinese by chance? You kind of type like a Chinese guy i know. Is your gf white or chinese?

                Whilst traveling, or when I return. But I will be sure I choose the right one next time and not let her go either. Every month I have profound regrets late in the night about a select few women who would've been good to keep around. Lately it's been about this one girl that spoke clearly, was very poise, and had a great fashion sense (she was South Korean). I let her go after a month though because she was on anxiety meds, had plastic surgery, she couldn't cook at all, and had really red gums indicating they were infected... okay I just miss her personality lol

                Do you ever feel profound romantic regret every so often? Similar or dissimilar to panic attacks?

                >Are you Chinese by chance? You kind of type like a Chinese guy i know. Is your gf white or chinese?
                No, I am white, my gf is Chinese.

    do people not understand that you can travel and save money in your twenties?

    throughout my twenties and even into my thirties I would work about six months a year and travel the other six. it was not hard. have roommates and don't get sucked into the money traps like streaming subscriptions, fast fashion, expensive car payments, fast casual dining etc.

    the downside is your career is going to suffer. most firms won't let you take a huge half-year long stint of unpaid leave so you'll probably fall into the swirl of seasonal employment. that means bad pay, bad treatment, very little career progression and probably a lot of geographic instability. and then when you meet a girl and want that more grounded lifestyle you're going to be starting from that entry level. making shit money, working with twenty-three year olds and really struggling. but ultimately you should rise pretty fast, that or go get a skill or certification that lets you skip the line a little bit.

      We avoided that with this path

      I'll tell you what i did.

      I started working right at 20 when I finished undergrad. I was always making reasonably good money, like 70-90k depending on the job. I started lifting and investing alot. 100k Net Worth by 24. I took some reasonable vacations, went out with friends, but didn't do the whole "travel the world thing". I also learned how to pull local chicks in town, basically had a great sex life my whole 20s without needed to get shitfaced or travel to Europe/Asia.

      Importantly, I realized that kids are not something that fit into my wants or goals in life either.

      Mid-late 30s now. I'm now married to a fantastic woman. We are a DINK (double income no kids), childfree couple. We are super rich, just from compounding interest. We both make 150k and own a nice place in a nice area. We are so financially free we can't even spend all our money. We travel a shit ton on first class, nice resorts, great food, etc. Sex life is awesome. We have a dog but hire a dog walker lol.

      I really feel like I'm living the dream, every stage of my life has been awesome. But i worked hard in my 20s and discovered myself - not from running away from my problems but by overcoming them.

      To summarize:

      - work early in your 20s. Start earning compound interest from a young age, you will be super wealthy later on.
      - everything in moderation. Spend some money and enjoy yourself but make sure that you save and invest.
      - learn about yourself, running away from your problems doesn't fix anything.
      - find a partner with similar goals and outlook
      -don't have kids (people have a hard time with this one. I dont judge people who have kids but for me personally im quite happy with our decision. And financially it is a huge burden)
      - basically have unlimited money in your 30s onwards to really enjoy travelling and life in general.

      Yes lots of depressing and fricked up individuals on the resorts in the caribbean

          Lol wut? Plenty of people start their professional careers on their 30s and make it all the way to the top.

          Replace "travelling" with "army" and you will see plenty of people having a 5-10 year gap between high school and uni/first real job.

          Of course this means you can't keep changing careers every other time because yes, 40s are already too much to do over again, but check many examples from the old aristocracy going on "grand tours" the Israelis serving 3 years in the army and then travelling for another 1-2 before starting Uni or the whole community of working holidays.

      I'm not the childfree guy or a nihlist but jesus christ why do you have a gf then? However moronic having kids might seem to you, tieing yourself down to a girl while you have no intention of having kids is 100x dummer. Please explain to me in clear language your reasoning behind this. It makes about as much sense as sawing both your legs off 'to make the world a better place.

    Honestly not sure if it really matters. I don't think life changes the instant you turn 30, I about to be 27 next month and all of my life choices/mistakes have led me here. I'd still be the same dumbass or intelligent person I am at 30. Life doesn't just change. You can decide not to get married to a woman, get stuck in a dead end job, or constrain yourself to anything. I am speaking as a man. Dating and career wise you should atleast have some experience and a degree ideally.

    I am traveling a bit late, but plan to take vacations as much as I can, energy wise I am not sure how getting older will frick you up, Unless you eat junk food and are unhealthy. Just stay fit by exercising and make sure you are keeping up with tech.

    you picked having a good time now because you had no self control due to a poor upringing

    the argument of having less energy as you get older (20 to 30) is an admission of your shitty lifestyle

      When you die, you won't be able to take your precious money with you. I'd rather spend it while I can.

      Obviously, compound interest means that a dollar saved now will be worth several times that by the time I'm old. This analysis ignores the fact that a dollar spent now is worth infinitely more to me than in my 60's. I can't even think of what I'd spend it on at that age, given that any children of mine would probably be grown. Palliative care, maybe. More expensive negresses to abuse me in a nursing home.

      At $120k, I'm easily in the top 1% of incomes worldwide. That's more than enough for any man. Will I be able to live in the most expensive US suburbs? No, but that's ok. I'd rather live in a place where everyone isn't mentally ill. I could hunker down for a year and buy a Latin American penthouse. That's good enough for me.

          I've seen this so many times. Loads of kids, but they're stuck in some shitty little retirement home. Having kids won't guarantee shit, but it will definitely tick off a very primal urge to propagate. People will invent high and mighty reasons for wanting to creampie a woman, but it is man's most natural instinct. The rest doesn't even matter, most high T men would be content knowing they've left twelve bastards, regardless if they had anything to do with raising them.

    Look I don't really have a dog in this whole DINK vs. breeder thing, though personally I tend to bias towards the breeders myself.

    However, you have to acknowledge the inherent hypocrisy of constantly assuring people how great life without kids while simultaneously lamenting what a cruel decision it must be to bring life into this increasingly shitty world and future. I shouldn't have to explain why this thinking is more than a little incongruent.

    I've also found in life that people who have to in great detail explain to you how they are having such a great time are often not having a good time. Cope's the word. This dynamic is especially true amongst those who go into these detailed explanations without ever being asked.

    People with kids tend to say things like
    >It changed my life and I regret it, but its the best decision I ever made
    and I like that. It seems to really capture the sort of emotional contradictions we all experience in a human sort of way. This is infinitely more relatable and charming than the logical contradictions of DINKs, who to be honest always sort of sound like they are selling something when they describe their lifestyle.

    My plan is ridiculous but I'll share it anyways.
    I make good money, save half my paycheck, and I'm in my early 20s. I'd like to do a lot of things: travel, have a family, go back to school and get a PhD, own a cabin in the woods, not have to do a boring monkey job, etc. And I could do any of these things now.
    I could travel a lot, I could have a family, I could get a PhD, I could buy a cabin, I could quit monkey job. But I can only do one. Whereas, assuming I keep saving and my paycheck increases, I can do all of those at the same time in my 30s.
    My retirement account is going to be massive, so no need for monkey job. I'll have enough money to buy a shitty project cabin. I'll have the time to get a PhD, some semblance of school breaks like in undergrad that can be used for travel, and the money to raise a family.

    Of course I won't have the energy for all of this, but it's better to have the option to do more than one at once instead of locking my entire life into one path I chose on a whim in my 20s.

          Not him, but I think I'm more at liberty to be myself when I'm alone. That's why I wouldn't necessarily travel with my family. I can't just decide to smoke weed all day at the club in Barcelona, then go on a Tinder date and come back home reeking of weed, with company in tow (or not). It's disrespectful, and they'll think it's cringy and immature (I'm 26).

          They have perfectly good reasons for thinking that, but at the end of the day it's my life and as long as I'm not hurting anyone, I mean to do what I like. That's why now that I've got a real job, I'm definitely putting some distance between myself and my parents.

          Maybe you'll think this is a really shallow way to think if you come from a country where it's normal for people to live with their parents until they're 30 (Italy), or a country where you're expected to let them live with you until they die, supporting them (China). Or a cultural background where family groups and other forms of affinity are so greatly valued (Latin America).

          But that's one of the great things about travel. You understand the differences between other cultures and yours, giving you ironic distance. You are then free to choose what you really value from it and what you do not. Other people just follow their culture blindly. That's why traveling really can help you "find yourself."

            Most people are in the middle on this. You and me are probably not as special as we think. And yeah, some people are stubborn, but many, many people want to learn about other cultures, too. Your thing about "thinking it's shallow if you come from a family-based culture" doesn't really make sense to me, probably since I'm not from one

    I traveled to Venice last summer as soon as I got a remote job. Had no savings, was living paycheck to paycheck essentially, moving between Airbnbs in the big city, just having the time of my life as a 20-something year old. I dated an Italian artist chick and a Kazakh exchange student randomly in Venice.

    Though I was there for a week, I got dates with both women while I was there. Both I met on Tinder. The Kazakh girl was a bust, we got spritzes but she obviously wasn't attracted to me.

    But the Italian girl. We got Afghan food and laughed for three hours. After finishing our meals, we walked around the city with no aim in sight. Towards the end, I got her in an alley away from all the tourists on some pretext and we kissed for like 3 minutes straight. It was a hot kiss, she was letting me feel her ass and everything.

    In the end, we never ended up meeting again. But I'm glad to have that memory. And I know something like that will probably never happen in my 30's. My hairline's receding and I am NOT the type to look handsome bald.

        The good implants are for guys like Elon Musk anyway, who can afford the best doctors money can buy. I don't particularly relish having to drop a small fortune on something many guys enjoy for free.

    It's pretty true. Time in the market is the most important factor for growing a sizeable amount of money. Now that I'm in my mid twenties and have a sizeable amount of money saved up and invested traveling is way less stressful and more enjoyable than when I was dead broke using all of my money just to travel and stress out about every little unexpected expense, much less saving for retirement. Now that I have enough that I could feasibly stop contributing to my retirement accounts and still have enough to retire on it's a complete world's difference in mindset and personal enjoyment in everything I do already. Now I am working towards securing passive income through investments, working a more relaxed schedule (likely traveling for the winter) and by the time I'm 30 I want to live abroad full time partially sustained by passive income partially by doing remote work.
    I traveled and worked away purely in preparation for travel about 5 years of my life. Working (albeit not as much as I could have or should have been) online while traveling for several months at a time as well. I don't regret say, the first two. I think they were good formative experiences for me. The latter three were a waste of time and money and I wish I started working seriously and saving up money then. I would be where I want to be at 30 right now. I don't think it has to be all or nothing though. I think you could go on a really good, formative, thought-provoking 3-6 month trip in your early 20s and still save up and work for the rest of your early 20s, maybe even taking a shorter trip here and there.

    My biggest problem is that in my early 20s, I had friends to travel with. Whether university or hometown friends, people were always up for some travelling, even though we had barely any money.

    Now in my 30s I have tons of money to spend but nobody to travel with. Everyone is busy working their dead-end 9-to-5 jobs that make them unavailable for most of the week and prevent us from making any sensible travel plans.

    How do I meet people to travel with? I've met a few flight attendants and they have flexible schedules so they're good travel partners, but they're often stuck-up b***hes.

    No. The reality is that you'll either be 22 with a bachelors, 24 with a masters or 25-27 with a law or medical degree. Once you're out of college and earning money, you've got 3-8 years before you hit 30. Once you have that paying job, you save up an emergency fund to ensure you can live for 3+ months without a job. Once you have that emergency fund, save your money and go traveling as often as you can, use credit card trifectas (triple AMEX, triple Chase cards) to rack up points to help fund future travel.

    The real trick is to make sure you have a SOLID emergency fund for when shit hits the fan (my current fund is at $20k, enough for a 1BR apt for a full year with 8k for food/healthcare), and saving money to spend on the things you want. When you're young you won't earn as much so you really have to pick between fun and future money. Once you have several years of experience and your salary goes up it's easier to fund travel and at home QOL. You earn more investing earlier and depriving yourself of travel, but its easier to travel and more fun to do when younger and with less responsibility in life overall.

    The balance really lies in how much you can get away with, because if you're making 30k a year then yeah survival outweighs travel, but if you're earning 80k a year it's a lot easier to save and spend on what you need/want.

    Travel in 20’s and 30’s is just different.

    20’s, cheap as possible, chasing girls and bumming around.

    30’s, flying first/business class, staying in upscale hotels, getting my workouts in and then soaking up history and cultural activities, or just hiring an adventure travel service to put together the itinerary.

    It would be different if I had a gf/wife/kids. But I like the independence of being able to go where I please.

      Are you ever planning to have kids? Do you have any baby mamas/girls who aborted?

      Do you frick mainly younger women? How do you keep earning money?

      This is what I'm planning, basically saving up in my 20s, staying single, then travelling in luxury and creampieing zoomer bawds all my 30s and 40s. Just not sure how feasible it is. Any advice is appreciated.

        I’m not the right guy to ask about that, as I don’t chase women when I travel any more. (Or, honestly, at all). It feels like a waste of time.

        I’ll still hook up with a woman if it falls in my lap, but I’m not going to change my plans a tremendous amount, or give up on sleep / doing what I want to do, just to get laid. That was travel in my 20s and it was fun, but I feel like I got it out of my system.

        Easiest thing IMO is to do couples-style vacations with friends with benefits (works best with a girl from a different city than yours). Arrange to meet up on some island and live together / frick like rabbits for a week, then go your separate ways again at the end.

        >flying first
        flying first is such a waste of money that I can honestly only imagine doing it if you're making literal 7 figures. it doesn't make any financial sense if you don't earn that much

        Once you get used it to, it’s basically impossible to go back. I don’t make 7 figures, but I make mid-six, and it’s fully worth it at that level.

        I also fly a ton for work, so many of my flights are paid for by clients or with points.

          Where do you meet these women, and how do you convince them to go? Do you do multiple trips or just one trip?

            higher end wellness/adventure travel trips, like an 8-day retreat to an exotic country

            Women that do those kinds of things tend to be single, fit, have money, be down with travel, and not looking for anything serious.

            One one hand I’m sad because the lack of general interest in any kind of commitment whatsoever will be the downfall of society (as nobody is having kids anymore). But I also don’t have a problem enjoying meeting and spending time with interesting women.

                There’s literally tons, just google around for “adventure travel,” “wellness travel” etc. Yoga retreats are popular and fun.

                I don’t recommend doing these trips JUST to pick up girls, it’s definitely a weird vibe to bring in. However, when you’re in some remote jungle location with a bunch of fit, single women, things obviously happen. Outside of cities people revert to a more primal group psychology, it’s kind of trippy.

      Chin up, anon. You're only 31. If you think about it, you still have another 30, 40 years of life left. You can go and learn a trade and be trained within 6-12 months. You're broke at 31 because of life circumstances OR you don't place a high value on money.

      So don't worry about it. You can change your life anytime you want. Just put in small efforts every day and have a long-term goal in mind.

        I've thought about trade but wages are so shit in the UK I wonder if I'll be any better off than just staying on disability. Also getting on disability is a nightmare, if it all goes wrong and I need to go back on I have to go through that hell all over again and they will use the fact that I tried to escape against me. The welfare system is truly designed to keep you trapped.

            No that's because of being forced to marry within one's class but the welfare system has started to contribute. For example getting a council flat is now so hard that the only way is to have lots of kids and kick out the dad so estates are now full of single mums with 10 kids and these kids will do the same thing when they grow up.

      I just want to second this with every part of my soul. "One day" has a way of becoming "never" while you're not looking, and it will never be today again. Also, it's very presumptive to just assume you have time. Nothing is promised. Figure out what matters, and do it now.

      Lol. The amount of young woman traveling solo is already low as frick, then the amount of actually attractive ones even lower. Then of those the ones who actually want to hookup is absolutely abysmal. Not even mentioning the logistical issues that would push away the more prudish ones.
      People are always telling stories about this shit, I don’t know if I believe them.

      Like all things it comes to location, and timing. Unsurprisingly low season is not the best time to meet tourist girls in hostels. I've had trips where I fricked more girls than the days I spent in country, and I've had trips where I got no b***hes.

      Not sure?
      Just a fact that most girls travel with family or their boyfriends and attractive girls typically don’t backpack in hostels solo. Not to mention the massive amount of single men of any age in any hostel making difficult for one on one time with a girl. Also there’s a growing proportion of women that aren’t attracted to men.
      Not saying it’s impossible at all but I’ve only ever heard of tall extroverted white dudes getting hostel pussy and they exaggerate anyways.
      Also this is coming from a dude who’s done the give them alcohol shit, if they don’t like you sober than they probably don’t like you tipsy.

      >most girls travel with family or their boyfriends
      Or in packs.
      >the massive amount of single men of any age in any hostel making difficult for one on one time with a girl
      1. You don't need one on one time until it's time to close the deal. 2. Learning how to close out other men is a skill, like game in general. You get better with practice.

      This is what terrifies me. I'm a full time travellee now, and I keep SighSee, but I can see that basically all of what I enjoy doing requires a high level of fitness and energy and a body without any creeks or pains. Is this whole 'less energy' thing avoidable? If I keep REALLY fit, will I be ok into much later age?

      All I'm saying is Bernard Hopkins won the IBF Light Heavyweight title, off a man 17 years younger than him, at the age of 48. If you're looking for reasons why you can't, the world is full of them. It's up to you to shut out the legions of voices giving you excuses, trying to cut you down, and find reasons why you can.

      Yeah this isn't how it actually works, unless you're a fricking loser with no job experience, education, or training, jobs need to offer competitive benefits to attract and keep people who are worth a damn.

      My employer gives me 4 weeks PTO on top of 1 week state-mandated sick/personal time. Granted, one time when I decided I was going to take all four weeks back to back to enjoy some SighSee, they tried to play the "that's not every convenient for the company..." card, but since they have to pay out any unused PTO in the event I resign/get terminated, I just told them "I can take my vacation, come back, and continue to make this company money, or I can quit and you can pay for my vacation anyway."

      You don't need big brother to fight your battles, IF you're not a complete pussy who knows how to negotiate and be assertive. The only people who cry about how unfair life is in the states are dregs who would've starved or gotten picked off by a fricking smilodon in the caveman days.

      >travel is really not that big of a deal
      Agreed. I'm not sure why so many Americans have so much anxiety over it; you can literally get from NYC or Miami to Rio or London, in the span of one wagie shift.

      I also don't think a lot of people understand just how affordable travel can be; you can backpack/hostel comfortably for a year on $12-15K USD; one of the cheapest trips I've ever had was three months in the EU, did the Kungsleden and the Camino in the same trip, and spent the rest of my time fricking around in Spain and Portugal, seeing sights, smoking weed, drinking wine, and fricking girls.
