If you are alone today on Thanksgiving
God bless you and you are not alone. Been there done that many times. Thinking of you!

Stuff gets better, then shit again then better.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Re: If you are alone today on Thanksgiving
I’m alone (with my dog), by choice this year because I couldn’t stand to spend it with my husband and his godawful parents. I just need a break from everyone and their passive aggressive bullshit. As soon as he left the house I felt this enormous wave of relief — that’s probably not normal.

I spent so many holidays alone in my 20s, feeling sorry for myself and now I relish it.

So far I have eaten a weird mix of non Thanksgiving foods and it’s great.

Re: If you are alone today on Thanksgiving
We don't celebrate Holidays on the dictated dates. We make them work to our schedules, in which ironically works to EVERYONEs' schedule.

This year we had two dozen friends and family invited. The family keeps expanding, everyone paired up this year. Vaxxed, not vaxxed, everyone welcome to come together. Peace, harmony, games, music, drinks, and plenty of food.

While the dictators are busy playing their games, we aren't giving zero fucks. Not since day one.

OMG...I wish I would have spent it alone. I'm one of those "sandwich generation" guys, like some my age, ended up completely single for life with no children. Not by choice. Younger men in their 20s have a much easier time dating girls because the population size is much larger in that age group. Back when I was that age, it was damn near impossible to find a girlfriend. I have several guy-friends my age, all decent looking employed men that never married and have no kids because they just couldn't find anyone either. I suffered the same fate. So I have to suffer the embarrassment of being a fatherless single man in life.

I have a family with lower IQs. Went to my old parent's house for Thanksgiving. My father can only talk about sports or about how some 16 year old kid in the metro area is an all-state basketball player and is 6'9'' and blah blah. I'm like "who fucking cares about some god damn kid you don't even personally know. Like who fucking cares!!!!!". My father was only a high school teacher like my sister, therefore they know zilch about the adult corporate world. All they can talk about is other 15 year old kids at my sister's high school she teaches at. It's so fucking bizarre. He views my sister like his "son" because she looks like him and I look like my mother. It's nothing but low IQ stupidity the whole time.

My divorced sister with a nasty fake superficial attitude (her husband just could not stand her anymore and divorced her) comes over with her ungroomed dog and with unclipped nails and turns it loose. It runs over to my 92 year old great aunt and lacerates her leg with its nails. BLOOD ALL OVER THE FLOOR. How fucking irresponsible and stupid can someone be to turn a dog loose on a 92 year old lady. They're running around looking for gauze pads and tape and cleaning blood off my great aunt. My stupid low IQ sister. I just was looking at the chaotic situation thinking how irresponsible she is....and she is 50 years old. She doesn't realize that the situation could turn into a chronic wound or infection because my great aunt is 92 years old and people that age don't heal as easily. She just went back to sit down, played with her phone, and started talking about how other boys in her high school she teaches at were losers and how her kid is cool. I'm just rolling my eyes in complete disbelief.

Then my sister asked me if I was still eating keto because some guy she knows that teaches at her high school does and he's a weirdo and a loser because he never married and has no kids. I just looked at her in disbelief. "Ummm...I have no kids, so you're saying I'm a weirdo and a loser??" Gee thanks.

Aside from that, they all just ignored me and talked amongst themselves about stupid shit and about high school sports. Then my father asks me to buy my sister's kid a weight set $$$$ for Christmas. Excuse me?? He's not my fucking kid and I'm not spending that much money on a kid that has been completely thankless every damn Christmas I spent tons of money on him. My uncles only gave me $5 on Christmas when I was a kid and it stopped by the time I was 12. I guess I'm only good enough to talk to when my father wants me to spend money on his daughter and her son that has to be forced to say 'thank you' every time he's given something. Unbelievable. I was in such disbelief today.

I just jumped in my car and took off. I couldn't take it anymore. I definitely wish I could have spent Thanksgiving alone. Sure, I really wish I had a wife and kids and could have that family gathering, but I didn't get to have that in life. It's been tough every year living that reality. If I had a son, no matter who he turned out to be or how different he was from me, I'd always treat him as the flagship representative of the family. I totally did not expect Thanksgiving to be like this. I was just flat out ignored and regarded as "weird loser fatherless man" while I sat and ate turkey. That was my Thanksgiving.

I'm only 29 and I completely agree with you on this.

Do you think you might have aspergers?

That aside, you are fine man!

This may be our species culling.

It's a huge back and forth but either way you are one man and whether you had a family or not is not your worth.

It'd certainly help to spread the seed of the intelligent, but it's easier said than done.

 Quoting: eyeDR3


Yea, I'm very quiet by nature. Some might say I have "aspergers" or a touch of it. Years ago, I looked up "aspergers" and one of the characteristics of someone with true aspergers was the inability to interpret social cues, humor, or sarcasm. Lack of physical coordination; clumsliness. With me, I can be very humorous myself and I can catch on immediately when someone is being sarcastic or cracking a joke, because I absolutely love humor and laughing. I can immediately tell when someone is angry or annoyed, I can feel it instantly...so I can sense social cues. I can be a very empathetic person as well. I played high school and college sports, I was fairly athletic and very agile. I'm very unique. There are some aspects to me that relate to aspergers-like behavior, but other aspects that are far from it.

If I had a son, no matter who he turned out to be or how different he was from me, I'd always treat him as the flagship representative of the family. I totally did not expect Thanksgiving to be like this. I was just flat out ignored and regarded as "weird loser fatherless man" while I sat and ate turkey. That was my Thanksgiving.

I'm only 29 and I completely agree with you on this.

Do you think you might have aspergers?

That aside, you are fine man!

This may be our species culling.

It's a huge back and forth but either way you are one man and whether you had a family or not is not your worth.

It'd certainly help to spread the seed of the intelligent, but it's easier said than done.

Yea, I'm very quiet by nature. Some might say I have "aspergers" or a touch of it. Years ago, I looked up "aspergers" and one of the characteristics of someone with true aspergers was the inability to interpret social cues, humor, or sarcasm. Lack of physical coordination; clumsliness. With me, I can be very humorous myself and I can catch on immediately when someone is being sarcastic or cracking a joke, because I absolutely love humor and laughing. I can immediately tell when someone is angry or annoyed, I can feel it instantly...so I can sense social cues. I can be a very empathetic person as well. I played high school and college sports, I was fairly athletic and very agile. I'm very unique. There are some aspects to me that relate to aspergers-like behavior, but other aspects that are far from it.

You describe me to a “T”!!

The only difference is that I love my family and wish we could be together all the time but I have come to terms that they have family of their own now. They invite me because it is the polite thing to do but I feel really out of place being forever single. So I always decline and they know that I always will.

It’s a weird place to be because deep down I feel that I made the correct decision for me. When you truly analyze everyone else, how many people are actually miserable because of this compelling need to conform to social norms? I can’t imagine bringing children into this world either.

Anyway, there are no categories for people like us. The internet is trying to define us as the new “Sigma” male but I’m trying to resist labeling myself as such.

Re: If you are alone today on Thanksgiving
Yes, the world is full of blue-pilled people who talk about things that don't matter to you.. But I implore you to take a dose of humility for the holidays and see your family, especially your parents and children.

I go into the lion's den every holiday and survive the bitchy, self-absorbed, disconnected and drunken assault just fine. You just have to find common ground for conversation and don't let the politics gain momentum where people uncork their bottled attitudes. Be comically rude if you have to and change the subject.

If you're smart, you can navigate the ugly and not have a bad day.. And there's always others making the best of it, like you, and you appreciate each other for having the fortitude to be there.

Re: If you are alone today on Thanksgiving
...


OMG...I wish I would have spent it alone. I'm one of those "sandwich generation" guys, like some my age, ended up completely single for life with no children. Not by choice. Younger men in their 20s have a much easier time dating girls because the population size is much larger in that age group. Back when I was that age, it was damn near impossible to find a girlfriend. I have several guy-friends my age, all decent looking employed men that never married and have no kids because they just couldn't find anyone either. I suffered the same fate. So I have to suffer the embarrassment of being a fatherless single man in life.

I have a family with lower IQs. Went to my old parent's house for Thanksgiving. My father can only talk about sports or about how some 16 year old kid in the metro area is an all-state basketball player and is 6'9'' and blah blah. I'm like "who fucking cares about some god damn kid you don't even personally know. Like who fucking cares!!!!!". My father was only a high school teacher like my sister, therefore they know zilch about the adult corporate world. All they can talk about is other 15 year old kids at my sister's high school she teaches at. It's so fucking bizarre. He views my sister like his "son" because she looks like him and I look like my mother. It's nothing but low IQ stupidity the whole time.

My divorced sister with a nasty fake superficial attitude (her husband just could not stand her anymore and divorced her) comes over with her ungroomed dog and with unclipped nails and turns it loose. It runs over to my 92 year old great aunt and lacerates her leg with its nails. BLOOD ALL OVER THE FLOOR. How fucking irresponsible and stupid can someone be to turn a dog loose on a 92 year old lady. They're running around looking for gauze pads and tape and cleaning blood off my great aunt. My stupid low IQ sister. I just was looking at the chaotic situation thinking how irresponsible she is....and she is 50 years old. She doesn't realize that the situation could turn into a chronic wound or infection because my great aunt is 92 years old and people that age don't heal as easily. She just went back to sit down, played with her phone, and started talking about how other boys in her high school she teaches at were losers and how her kid is cool. I'm just rolling my eyes in complete disbelief.

Then my sister asked me if I was still eating keto because some guy she knows that teaches at her high school does and he's a weirdo and a loser because he never married and has no kids. I just looked at her in disbelief. "Ummm...I have no kids, so you're saying I'm a weirdo and a loser??" Gee thanks.

Aside from that, they all just ignored me and talked amongst themselves about stupid shit and about high school sports. Then my father asks me to buy my sister's kid a weight set $$$$ for Christmas. Excuse me?? He's not my fucking kid and I'm not spending that much money on a kid that has been completely thankless every damn Christmas I spent tons of money on him. My uncles only gave me $5 on Christmas when I was a kid and it stopped by the time I was 12. I guess I'm only good enough to talk to when my father wants me to spend money on his daughter and her son that has to be forced to say 'thank you' every time he's given something. Unbelievable. I was in such disbelief today.

I just jumped in my car and took off. I couldn't take it anymore. I definitely wish I could have spent Thanksgiving alone. Sure, I really wish I had a wife and kids and could have that family gathering, but I didn't get to have that in life. It's been tough every year living that reality.

That same thing hits me too. On one hand, it'll bother me that I don't have kids, but then the thought of "do I really want to bring kids into this world the way it is now?" hits me. If it were the 1980s again, it would be great to be a kid. Not today.

That might have been part of the reason why Russia has such a small population than what they really should have had if they had not fallen under Communism in the early 20th century. I would imagine a lot of people living in the Soviet Union during that time decided they didn't want to bring kids into a society under Communism. That's the precise path we're on.
