30 is a great age.... you can date an incredibly sexy 40 year old woman AND her 20 year old daughter, if you choose. And...women hitting their 30s are far more interested in sex than those in their 20s (their hormones begin to shift and their testosterone level begins to rise to one hundredth of man's, but it is enough to make her far more randy in her 30s than her 20s -- so say the researchers.)
It is the last decade before little physical problems begin to creep in, but not horribly so. The knees are still good, but you notice them. Wholesale slowing down is still decades off but staying up two days in a row become a little harder. And in a few years you're eligible to be president.
If I had to choose an age to go back to, and to stay permanently, 35 would be it. No longer a youth, but not aging either. It is a time when one starts to become internally settled, one begins to know who you are, and 20 year olds start to become kids. Thirty really is a good age. Indeed, the 30s are much better than the 20s. Your adventure is just beginning.
Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!
Mirror Of The Soul would like to wish its readers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This blog was started to provide balance for men, especially single men, a breath of fresh air you could say, from the all the other men's sites which tell you "what the problems are" in Western Society and with women - not to say this is not important - but they never give you a freaking solution. Here at Mirror Of The Soul, conveying to you that you can live a productive, peaceful, and happy life by going your own way and doing your own thing with or without a woman, peer approval, societal approval, or what not, is our utmost importance. Yes, in general, life sucks, and you can choose get to bitter or better. Mirror Of The Soul wants you to get better, not bitter. Hey, we got it on biblical authority too...as Jesus Christ says "...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Having a better life is what it is all about. Continuous improvement daily is the way to go, otherwise, well, you will just point out problems that everybody already knows, complain, bitch, grip, wallow in your misery like women do, probably become a Muslim and retard the world even more and never be part of the solution to better the world, your fellow man, or at the very least - yourself.
Therefore, go at it people, live grand as much as you can and want too, and enjoy life being content knowing yourself - whether you are rich or not, healthy or out of shape, have a woman in your life or not, have a lot friends or no friends, etc. It ultimately is up to you to choose to get bitter or better.
Dateless in Toronto
I usually go to Toronto once a month on business. I am always surprised at the number of single women that are there - yeah, single career chicks. Now, I am sure Toronto being the second largest city for gay and lesbians does not help out these career chicks desperately looking for dates, boyfriends, husbands, or what not, but it is definitely above average for single desperate career chicks than in other cities I have been. I even have regular dates set up with women in Toronto when I visit because it is so bad for them, and frankly, I am bored after business meeting and stuff and like to get out. I do have to say, the single desperate career chicks in Toronto are better looking and more tolerable than in the US. Although, these women tell me I am "rough" and say "Wow, you are like a real man." So this leads me to believe there are a lot of emasculated and feminized men in Toronto, and I must stick out like barbarian or something. Not that I care what these women think of me, because I define my masculinity on my own terms, but what they say generally reflects the absence of a certain type of preference for men among women. Then again, women usually gravitate to rough and tumble types, since their DNA is programmed to gravitate toward such for the protection of them and their offspring in the primal aspect of things.
New Trend In Shopping
We are always on the cutting edge of trends here. The Greek girl that does my shopping told me about men on cells phones talking to their wives or girlfriends as they shop for each item they are looking for at the store. Yep, American women - Now With More Laziness - just send your sap husband or boyfriend out to shop, give him a cell phone, and order him what to buy while you sit on your ass watching soap operas, talk shows, and eating massive amounts of processed hydrocarbon crap. Greek girl wanted to know why they don't just make a list for their husbands or boyfriends or do the shopping themselves, I said, "American women are too lazy to write and probably can't even spell, and the reason they send their husbands or boyfriends to shop is because American women are too fat to fit through the doors."
The Permanent Tourist Lifestyle
I consider myself a permanent tourist. I work in one country, I hold residency and citizenship in another (dual citizenship is the way to go, by the way), and have fun in yet another country(s). It is not as hard as you think. First, you need to establish a solid economic base for yourself - a good job or decent business usually suffices. I am not talking about being a neurosurgeon or a Fortune 500 executive, but a job or business that provides adequate income for this lifestyle, which is dependent on how grand you want to live it. Second, you are going to have to shift some of your income around. Having multiple bank accounts across the planet is the best, this way you don't have to carry around cash all the time, you just access your bank account in the countries where you decide to set up your lifestyle among. Some European countries will open bank accounts for you even through you aren't even a citizen, whereas the US usually requires you to be a citizen or have a greencard in order to have a bank account. Third, you need to learn some foreign languages or have friends that speak foreign languages to translate for you if you don't. English is spoken worldwide for the most part, but knowing the local foreign language of the country you are in is always best to establish a connection and repertoire with the foreign country and their people in which you work, live, or have fun in. Community colleges in the US have classes on the major foreign languages - French, German, Spanish, and the universities in the US usually have a broader range of foreign languages like Italian, Greek, Russian, and Chinese to learn as well. Look, American woman are getting fatter and uglier all the time, I was just out this week to dinner with some executives and could not believe how many fat and ugly American women I saw at this pretty upscale restaurant. This is one reason I want all my business meetings shifted to Canada, the women are a lot thinner and better looking there in my opinion. I really think this was the reason the Big Three Automakers went north of the border, they just used labor costs as an excuse. Anyway, you owe it to yourself to be a transnationalist, not some mudane average joe having to deal with only fat and ugly American women, considering that there is a much wider and bigger range of women in the global pool of them. Become a permanent tourist, and enjoy the flexibility and style it offers.
The Ever Changing American Male
The American male is so screwed up with his identity as a person that he deems his own worth to be proportional to what a woman says it is or thinks of him. This is anathema to God, Jesus, Buddha, the alien overlords or whoever you believe in. I bet 9 out of 10 men in America are like this, with there whole identity revolving around what their wives or girlfriends think of them. Take for instance, that metrosexual crap or sensitive man crap women wanted, and sure enough millions of males here in America changed their whole lifestyle and stuff to accommodate women so these women would approve of them, and these men could feel "acceptable" and "worthy" to their womenfolk. Now, we got the ubersexual crap, and millions of males here in America will grow beards, learn to hunt, pillage and burn villages to the ground, chew tobacco, or whatever their women tell them that being a ubersexual is all about, so that again, these men can feel "acceptable" and "worthy" to their womenfolk. Take note kids, it is vitally important that a man knows himself, his identity on who he is, and remains true to himself on who he is, so he does not fall for all this garbage women want from men at various times and at various places. Women, first and foremost, have no clue what they want anyway, so you look like a real idiot changing your lifestyle for them, and I will make sure to laugh at the clown you are, as I do so many other American men.
Cigars and Women
"Cognac and cigars... it's like finding the perfect woman. When you've got her, why go chasing after another?"-- Michael Nouri, Actor
"A woman is just a script, but a cigar is a motion picture."-- Samuel Fuller, Movie Director parodying Kipling
"Women are jealous of cigars... they regard them as a strong rival."-- William Makepeace Thackeray, English Author
"If a woman knows a man's preferences, including his preference in cigars, and if a man knows what a woman likes, they will be suitably armed to face one another."-- Colette, French Author
"If your wife doesn't like the aroma of your cigar - change your wife."-- Zino Davidoff
"There's peace in Larranaga, there's calm in Henry Clay, and a woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke."-- Rudyard Kipling
"Given the choice between a woman and a cigar, I will always choose the cigar."-- Groucho Marx
I don't go shopping that much. I give a list of things I need to this Greek girl I know, and she goes out to do that - she is pretty good too - getting stuff fresh from the local farmer's market - or I have stuff delivered with local services in the area. Every since back in 2000, when I went to one of those big box retail and grocery stores and saw some of the most hideous sites imaginable of fat people, I mean - beyond obese - literally blocking aisles, stuffing their carts with cheap processed hydrocarbon crap, aimlessly wandering around like zombies, and their children running wild like monkeys on crack cocaine. How come people take their kids shopping anyway? I never went shopping when I was a kid nor did I care too, I had better stuff to do like blow up stuff with fireworks, ride my bike without a helmet (you could do that back then), and tell the girl next door she has cooties and throw mud pies at her (you could also do that back then and not get sued for sexual harassment or assault with a mud pie). Anyway, I then went to a more upscale shopping place, you could say, and ran into a bunch of suburbanite women who just go to this upscale shopping place to be seen, gossip, and block aisles like chickens in a hen house, and pay outrageous prices for stuff. Hence, I don't go shopping that much, if I do, I stick to a small out of the way mom and pop place or just outsource the stuff I need to somebody else to get for me. Besides, you never know when one of those fat persons is going tip over and start rolling in your direction...

I oppose the death penalty for several reasons. First tax dollars, it literally cost twice as much to execute a defendant as it does to house them for life. Secondly, and perhaps it should be first, courts make mistakes. To date 126 men have been left off death row because they did not commit the crimes they were convicted of -- how many innocent men were murdered? Third, the state should set an example, and not stoop to the level of the killer. Capital punishment does not deter crime and as a group murderers are the least likely defendants to commit another crime.
The only chink in that formidable armor is self-defense. As a concept, self-defense is always defendable. One could argue that society has a right to defend itself from such people. That is, if we do not take the lives of people, normal citizens will get frustrated to the point they will do what the state is failing to do and we would then have an even bigger problem on hand.
A valid argument can be made that execution is a fitting punishment for treason, which truly is society protecting itself, but beyond that I think not.
Now, you me and thee can take a shot gun and go down death row and kill everyone and think we did a good days work, saving billions and wiping out a lot of true low lifes. But just as we expect the parent to behave better than the child we should expect government to behave better than its citizens.
Mind you, I thought of all of this before I had a friend sent to death row.
The Ultimate Weapon
Women, especially those career chick American women, hate men that live well without them. American career chick women that I know, seem to constantly devise schemes and such to draw me into their miserable lives, but I just ignore them and continue about doing the things I want to in life and living well. I am sure I am not the exception to this, with American career chick women trying to sucker some other man into their miserable world of cats, television, and awful attitudes that don't attract men - and they wonder why they are single? By living well, you will also find that certain men will hate you too (this is called jealousy), but who cares, they have crap jobs as some type of salary man at big corporation X or what not, to support some nagging, abusive, demeaning wife under threat of divorce and losing it all or some ex-wife via alimony and child support, or have to put up with some biatch American girlfriend, but you go home to peace and quite, enjoying a fine cigar and cognac, contemplating what country to visit next in your pursuit of being a world traveler and connaisseur extraordinaire. You might entertain thoughts of having a family or kids, but then you look around at those that do here in the US, and realize, you won't be getting off at that stop. Wait for it, plenty of women in world, plenty of countries, pick a place you find that has good laws supporting men's rights and family and such, and pitch your tent there if you so desire a family. In the meantime, live well, for every second you do such, you are giving the middle finger to countless people around you caught up in the system as well as the system itself, and you remain free. Indeed, as they say, living well is the best revenge.

Dave Thomas, who founded Wendy's said, feminists have so demonized men that saying you are a man is like saying you are a good Nazi, there is no rehabilitation.
Get this...a team of four people went to a foreign capital to do a business presentation (three men and one woman.) When the work day was done, two of the men decided to go to a bar they could walk to for a drink. The woman asked if she could go along, and did. In the bar one of the men was approached by a prostitute. She offered her butt to him, as a sample of what he could get. He weighed a cheek with his hand, but said no thanks. The trio finished their drink, went back to the hotel, stayed the night, and flew back to the US the next day. End of story.
No... the man was fired for sexual harassment of the female employee because in her presence he touch another woman's butt - the prostitute's.
That is how bad the demonizing, the political correctness, and the sexual harassment abuse nonsense has become.
The Empire Strikes Back
I have noticed that every woman, whether foreign or domestic, finds pleasure in breaking a man. They try to create drama, circumstances, chaos, or whatever to confused and drive a man to the point of emotional breakdown, they especially like it when men cry from it. This I have seen with my friends among their girlfriends and wives. Their women love to break them as men, then these women act strong as if they are these mens' solutions to their problems, which they brought upon these men in the first place. I have seen women try and pull this crap on me as well, but I refuse to tolerate their nonsensical games that they play and strike back twice as hard against their lunacy. Women fear power and dread confidence. Go Dark Side on them. Tell them to shut the fuck up immediately and give them the Last Judgment Day look while laying down the law accordingly, noting that the only problem is them. Speaking with authority and radiating power in presence shuts down women for good from pulling all that shit mentioned above - then get rid of them from your life. Yes, this will be a day long remembered.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I have not dated in this century. I've asked a few out...well...three...and had a few infatuations -- okay one -- but I have been woman-free for quite a while, and that has its benefits. Every time I start to feel a little lonely I just remember what horrid miseries woman can wrought and I get over it. I am not without my socialization, however. I go out and about nearly every week. You see, I like the classic hardware, but not the contemporary software.
What I was thinking about was...when you're young there isn't much to fit together but as one ages one's complexities make relationships more difficult. Let me give you an example. I'm an excellent cook. I'm really good at it and have thrown dinners for up to two dozen people. A woman would have to be a better cook than I for me not to do the cooking. I could not live with a picky eater. Food, and the enjoyment of its great range of flavors et cetera is an art I enjoy immensely. To marry someone who was a picky eater is like a professional musician marrying someone deaf. And then there is politics and religion -- or in my case -- the absence of religion...and well...and to be nice and to be good in the boudoir...such a she 'tis possible but not probable. So, I long ago accepted my singleness. It seems to me as people live they become more complex. [This is why kids can go from love affair to love affair in days...it is simplicity meeting simplicity.] As each of us become more complex, a "fit" becomes more difficult. And partial fits are fraught with problems. Say she is more complex than he, and then she become more complex while he remains the simple bad boy. The partial fit becomes less and less workable.
So I don't think it is a case of anyone being "set" in their ways. I think it is a case of complexities.
