Out on a short-term project at a clients’ facility at the moment, which gives me, some face time with my direct manager. I’ve been working with this guy for a long time, almost 12 years in fact for this company and I’ve known him for about 4 years before that. It was him who had actually got me the job for this company when I was down and out (and the company was quite a bit different then) 12 years ago so I owe him quite a bit. He was only working part time back then but they sorely needed staff and I sorely needed a job which was a match made in heaven. As an aside, he knows I have serious ADHD, and he works with me in order to assist me get the best out of myself. Most people don’t, and wouldn’t even try to understand my situation.
I owe this guy the world, there is no other way I can say it.
However, before I get too far ahead of myself, I need to give you guys a little info on my Manager. You see he is in his mid 20’s, so he is 10 years younger than me. That’s right, you do the math and I’ve known him since he was in highschool. Let me tell you something else, he is one of the most driven individuals I have ever met in my life. I have watched him work up the ladder of success from being a fulltime highschool student, to a fulltime university student, to graduating University and working with the company fulltime (he was part time all those years previously), to actually succeeding me (wasn’t too hard for him really, I wasn’t diagnosed then and was a schlepper, but that takes nothing away from his drive) to becoming a manager of our company.
This young man is scarcely old enough to rent a car in America, and he has finished yet another correspondence course in terms of business, bought his own home (he’s single) is looking to further his formal business education, invests regularly and is the Manager of Operations of a 7-figure division in a gigantic company.
Not bad huh, not bad at all.
To top it all off, this guy isn’t ugly at all, I’ve actually seen this guy in public and be completely ignorant to the female attention he regularly grabs. I don’t think he considers himself Brad Pitt, but in all honesty when you consider everything about him he is a mustang surrounded by Kia’s.
This is the kind of guy, which makes quite a few of us ‘normal’ people look like lazy bums in comparison. When he tells me about the ideas he has for our division and where he sees us, I simply can’t believe the amount of vision he has for someone so young. We where actually talking about one of the many new plans he has for us now when he happened to talk about his personal life for a smidge. You see, he is in no hurry to get married, there is far too much for him to do at this juncture, but his girlfriend is. He had said that she believes they are all set, now, house, good job, and savings so marriage and children are looking pretty good right about now.
I chuckled when he said that.
In essence, he and his gf are indeed ready to ‘settle down’ but everything I have just written which proves that they are ready have come from HIM, nothing from her. Now I’ve met his gf, she is far more reasonable than most North American Women, but I still had to explain to my young but very successful manager the real deal. Despite all the claims otherwise by women and the lamestream media, things really haven’t changed much from the man-provider, woman-provided for role we saw in history. Of course she sees that they are ready for a more serious relationship, they have HIS house, and HIS steady income, what else is there?
Now this is where he truly showed how smart he really is.
He had stated that even though men are still on the hook for their responsibilities as far as families go, they don’t get the same ‘privileges’ any longer so to speak. Let me just say this for the record, he has never been to an MRA blog, and I rarely tell him anything about what I have seen in the manosphere. He came to this ever present, but oft ignored conclusion all by himself.
Ain’t it great ladies?
He then told me that whenever his gf says they should move in together, he pulls out the logic card and he does have enough game to make it work. He tells her that he will sell his house, and they will buy a bigger one, and then they can settle down. She, natch, can’t afford it, to which he replies “Then why do you want to move in together?”
Ah gotta love it.
He knows the deal, and the thing, which really makes me shake my head, is that this guy is a catch by any woman’s standards. He has a decent amount of game but I don’t think he actually understands the levels to which he could regularly score if he actually knew what the whole deal was. Make no mistake, if this guy spent even an hour on a PUA website, he would be dangerous.
C’mon, confident, good looking, young educated, and ferociously ambitious guy with a sh!tload of game? If he was a PUA, one couldn’t even say he would’ve been the type your mom warned you about, as everything else about him would have a girls parents whooping for joy at her good fortune. Well, before being pumped and dumped that is. I told him just that too, as far as his gf was concerned, she hit it out of the park by choosing him, most women will never even get a whif of a dude stacked like my manager and she knows it. I also bet that is why she is pushing to move in with him in the first place. As time goes on, my young manager is going nowhere but up, this does indeed put a little pressure on his gf’s SMP at the same time.
It’s funny, and sad all at the same time really. It was after my manager stated his belief’s I realized how effed we all really where in society. This young stud is a woman’s wet dream, he is so driven that he doesn’t even realize what his SMP actually is and how he could use it for ‘evil’ (read; PUA) if he so chose. Yet even though he would rather settle down in the end he is balking at marriage because of the losing proposition that it creates for husbands and fathers.
Let’s say it together friends…GOOOOO FEMINISM
