incel 4 - apathy

4chan greentext. be me. walk into gym wearing tiny 80’s shorts and fake mustache. see literal 9.5/10 girl running on treadmill with earphones in. walk up to her, motion for her to take her earphones out. tell her she’s alright looking but not really my type. walk away and leave the gym. hang out in my car in the parking lot, flying my rc helicopter all over the place. girl walks out. do 30mph fly-bys inches above her head and chase her running and screaming to her car. drink the rest of my nesquik and head home.

Both the incel’s older brother and a co-worker have told him something along the lines of, “You can’t trick girls into coming to you. They can sniff a desperate, manipulative person a mile off. You just have to not care.” One day, in a vain attempt to close the topic, he replied, “Maybe one day I’ll embrace his singleness,” which was in turn met with, “No, that’s not what I’m saying at all. Just doesn’t care either way.” His older brother also sent him a quote from a philosophical book stating, “Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it.”

The incel is at a complete loss as to how to even begin to not care. He’s just barely shaking off the nice guy mentality that women are not video games that will give you the treasure if you push the right buttons, so this concept of apathy is some next level wizardry.

Even the incel’s friend and role model (talented, experienced in the ways of life, but most importantly, laughs at his stupid jokes) tells him that the first step to finding a good partner is being comfortable single. But if he were comfortable being single, he wouldn’t be having this problem in the first place, now would he?

Now, how is the incel expected to reconcile this apathy with that other platitude people love spouting at him, “You just need to get out more.” Isn’t doing something he wouldn’t normally do considered “caring”? Maybe he’ll figure out this riddle when he’s not sleep deprived and mentally exhausted.
