Guys in here without a family or girlfriend, wtf are you doing with your life outside of work?

More geared towards the guys who are out of college and actually working full time, especially those in their 20s. For the guys in here who don't have a girlfriend/wife, what are you doing with your lives outside of work?

Working on side biz or hitting on girls on Tinder/bar/wherever else and traveling whenever I feel like it.

90% of the time i'm staring at binance on my screen.

Not a guy, but hobbies, studying and the occasional meetup with friends.

Elbows, for shits and giggles.

I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my achilles are tender, I'll put an ice pack on them while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

Awesome analysis. Unfortunately, I can’t make sense of the math. I get a total of -66...

I know your MO, therefore, I appreciate your test of WSO users and I am disappointed at their massive failure. Supposedly, these are the best and brightest....hmmmmm.

Holy what the fuck did I just read/see?

I can’t unsee that bro.

I could make the obligatory sleeping-with-your-cousin joke but I'm not going to.

As for Isaiah over here he looks like he's a Monster energy drink rep that goes to monster truck rallies and gives out free Monster drinks with his ex stripper girlfriend.

These are great. I love a great burn, as well as the daily sting of bamboo on my shins and quads.

Isaiah.... you just became my least favorite person on this forum. Nice mirror selfie bro.

This was my goal. I have succeeded.

Oh no. Maybe I should have had my right shoulder showing.

You would have liked that.

Because, my handle is tattooed on that side! Yay!

Or maybe you wouldn't like that. I just don't know.

Outside of work, I'm building a business. Failed several times already, but learning from each failure.

My hours are pretty laid back, and I don't have a SO, so here's what I do outside of work in no particular order of importance:

  • Read (goal is to read 52 books in 2018)

  • Workout (five times a week in the mornings for about 45 minutes)

  • Volunteer (joined the board of a small non-profit, about to join another, volunteer at a bike co-op)

  • Go out (enough said, go to local bars on the weekends with friends)

  • Attend sporting events (I live downtown within walking distance of three major pro teams, so I'll go to games often)

Aside from that, most of my time is taken up by cooking and/or sleeping.

I assume a lot of Side-by-side comparison of top modeling training courses + exclusive discount through WSO here.

For fun: hang out and/or go out to bars with friends, play recreational sports (great way to meet new people btw), watch tv, occasionally play video games, cook

For growth: workout daily, study for the gmat, read, meditate, browse/network for new opportunities (I'm looking for a new job)

Really just doing stuff that makes me happy and that I feel is beneficial to my life.

So I'm not your target person, but I have been there and have the benefit of hindsight a lot of other folks don't.

I spent most of it either working, recuperating inside, wandering my town, or on weekend outdoors trips hiking or skiing.

My advice would be:

Make sure you use it productively. This is a key time to build up core skills that will benefit you: work out to make sure you look attractive, get involved in some form of activity to work on your communication skills (toastmasters or improve classes are my recommendations), and maintain an active night/social life to keep your social skills up.

That should be all you need. Try not to waste time on TV, video games, porn, etc because those things all are detrimental to you in ways you don't realize and I don't have time to explain today. There's a LOT of ways you can relax that will be beneficial to you in ways these things won't be.

Work on myself. Go to the gym, eat well, go out with my mates and have a good time, go on dates with different girls. Just have fun really, make each weekend as fulfilling as possible.

Ignore my Title and Industry - I can't seem to change it under 'Edit Profile' lol
