A vote was held in the congress that passed through a majority to create a new board for /777/. This board will be focused around positive self development of individuals and fellow anons/leftists. Topics such as working out, sobriety, healthy eating, etc etc etc. Enjoy!

Itt: post questions on meeting women, dating, relationships, and sex.

I'll try to give mainly practical advice based on my experience and understanding as someone who started out as fairly shit with women and now does alright. Obnoxious blackpillers will be left on read.

Don't get a prostitute. Probably the worst thing you could do, unless you want to be a trick.

Every little action is a vote for the sort of person you want to become. By getting a prostitute, you're telling your inner self, 'Im the type of guy who can only get laid if I pay for it.' Absolutely disasterous for your self image.

For your birthday, grab a (preferably non alcoholic) drink with a friend or acquaintance, if you have nothing else planned. As for getting laid easily, shooting for less than hot girls makes it easier. So does booze. But you want to use both as a stepping stone to better things without getting stuck using either as a long term crutch.

Why aren't you fit, anon?
>Literally takes 10-15 minutes per day to add muscles with basic bodyweight exercises. To lose fat, do fast cardio (think 15 second sprints and 2 minutes walking). Cut out unnecessary calories like sugar and milk in coffee. Never eat until you are completely full. It generally takes 15 minutes or so for your brain to catch up with your stomach. Stop eating when you're 70% full. Be careful with alcohol and drugs that wreck inhibitions, since they'll cause you to make poorer food choices.

If I was starving to get laid, it would be ridiculously easy, but then she would be bothering me constantly and I'd have to brush her off/ghost her. Not really something I want to do. Also approached exactly 1 girl and was able to social media close. She's kinda soft 6 in my book (devil is also in the details), but she could also be a potential lay with less drama in the future if I'm horny or want the ego boost.

<Addition by subtraction

>Most of the shit you spend time on or put into your body isn't helping you.

Sure, it might provide a temporary feeling of pleasure. But chasing short-term, immediate happiness is one of the primary reasons that people fail in life and become so existentially ghey.
>'But capitalism promotes the pursuit of short term pleasure,' you might say.
So fucking what. Are you an automaton? (Rhetorical question. Probably 50% of people here are, in fact, faggot NPCs and would unironically answer yes if they are being honest).
The point remains: your life would start to improve if only you could identify and ruthlessly excise those things which are holding you back.
Here's the litmus test. If it's helping you 'deal with' or 'cope with' your life, then it's holding you in place. Drugs, junk food, video games, porn, spergy media, certain people. Most likely, they provide temporary relief and help you feel ok about being a loser.
I'm not saying that if you give all these up, you're going to become a billionaire. But you're going to start making the marginal improvements which, taken together and compounded over time, lead to a much more satisfying life with far more opportunities and cool experiences. You'll be able to become someone who other people are capable of feeling respect for, who can make a positive impact directly in the lives of people around them (instead of larping as a revolutionary online like a fag).
>Inb4: 'waaaah, no we have to end capitalism and then I'll be able to get my shit together and have a better life waaaah.'
Retard faggot uyghur. How the fuck are you going to get rid of porkie and the capitalist system, something you really have no control over, but can't even get rid of just some of your own shit habits, addictions, and cope behaviors? This is exactly what I mean by the term 'existential faggot.'

>capitalism promotes the pursuit of short term pleasure
Yes, as long as the system does this, people will be degraded by the system.
You are huffing pure ideology if you think your appeals to personal responsibility can override systemic shit.

You are trying to find individual solutions to collective problems.
If you want people to have better pursuits, you need to change the system so that it promotes those.

>to get rid of porkie and the capitalist system, something you really have no control over

It's possible to change economic systems, if you look at history, that happens alot.
Individually people have no control, but collectively they do have the power to change the economic structures.
You are making the mistake of ignoring the societal level.

In class societies, the lower classes tend to get degraded, because ruling classes usually are very unexceptional and mediocre people, and the only way for them to be better than the rest is to make everybody else worse. In capitalism there is a lot of money to be made from that degrading stuff, so even if your individual motivation could work and all the people started to self improve, the system would start to loose profits and react to it and increase the intensity of degrading people.

<How to best use the habit tracking threads

I don't really track outcomes that much. Instead, I track actions and habits. The reason for this is simple.
>Someone can have a goal to get in shape. But if they never make a regular habit of working out, they will never get in shape. Alternatively, someone else can have no particular goal around fitness. But, if they exercise regularly and consistently for a long period of time, they will get in shape. It's the action/habit that makes the difference, not the outcome in mind.
For myself, I don't log my achievements in a split second. In the back of my mind throughout the week, I know I'm going to be writing down what I did. This also pushes me to do a bit more. Usually on Friday, I create a draft list of action achievements. Then, I think about it a bit more, and add to it before I post it. That's why it's so long and has somewhat mundane sounding things.
>A lot of what I do isn't that hard or time consuming.
It's important to remember that the time is going to pass anyways, regardless of what is done. The quality of that time is variable. Someone with a habit of going to the gym and someone with a habit of scrolling through social media put about the same amount of effort/thought into either. A habit, afterall, is something that is done almost automatically. It's establishing or breaking habits that takes effort.
There's a certain science to tracking habits like this.
>When you recognize your own achievements, it releases serotonin in your brain, making you feel good. Thus, it's like a self induced reward and you're more likely to continue those good habits.
It honestly blows my mind that so few people join in on this thread. Some of you might be happy and have decent lives. But I know what people in the far left are like. It's a lot of a pathetic losers. This is literally an easy way to improve your life.
Thinking, 'Ill never change' is both disempowering and untrue. You will inevitably change. Think about how different you were 7 or 10 years ago. It's hard to perceive looking forward, but you'll likely change in equal measure by 7 or 10 years from now. Rather than hoping for the best, it's far more effective/helpful to take the reigns of your own life.

-Continued not smoking weed
-Quit drinking soda and sugary drinks. Was basically consuming 500-700 calories per day that way (or 3500-4200 calories per week).
-Found a wallet and was able to track down the owner on social media, getting it back to him on the same evening.
-Bought a new house plant and repotted a bunch others (up to 26 potted plants in my apartment)
-Started out the week with a pretty bad back ache which moved up to my shoulder. Forced myself to go to the gym anyways on Wednesday and kept that up for the rest of the week.
-On my day off, I did the gym, went for a jog, and cycled a bit. Chest is popping.
-Found a cheap but decent looking pair of fake vans for like $12. Now I just need a couple pair of pants and some new shirts.
-Studied a foreign language a few days for about 10 minutes each time. I'm conversant but just want to brush up and add more vocab.
-Read the business book I'm reading. Have 2 other books I want to finish by the end of the year.
-Swept and mopped/cleaned entire apartment. Much needed.
