  1. Sounds paradoxical? But the healthier I become, the less sleep my body needs. This study is only one demonstration: Creatine supplementation reduces sleep need and homeostatic sleep pressure in rats "Mechanism: The researchers were able to show that supplementation increased the amount of creatine in the brains of the lab rats. As a result, the brain cells apparently have more molecular energy available to repair themselves, and they need less sleep to recover." [1] I suspect this is only the tip of the iceberg. Suppose we include chronic inflammation, free radicals, gut health, mental health, nutritional deficiency, methylation, etc. Then I find it obvious that the more you consume substances that optimize/lower all of these, the less damage is done to your body, and the less sleep it will need. It is not only these: macro/micronutrients are not the whole story. If you conduct a chemical analysis on any food, say, a leaf of spinach. You will literally find thousands of chemicals in the plant, probably the majority do not influence health, but some do. And by some, I mean probably hundreds. These affect our cells in remarkable ways. This study is only one example.
  2. Notice what you did there? You use pair-bonding, trust, intimacy synonymously with jealousy. That's the problem. They are not mutually exclusive. In fact, the more you love someone and become so intimate with them that you see them as yourself, will have your desire becomes there's. You will not desire to limit them in any way. You will not need to feel jealous. Can you feel jealous of yourself? No. In the book Conversations with God (I recommend you read it, Leo has said it is his top 3 books of all time, I would say it is my 1), He speaks of the distinction between envy and jealousy. Envy makes a child feel envious that his little brother can walk, so he tries to walk like him. God is not jealous, humans are. We should strive to become more godly, not more human. People love to rationalize away jealousy, they have worn this human-ape skin for so long they think it is who they are. Jealousy is pure human, in other words, pure ego. This is not to say you cannot be monogamous, sure be monogamous, do whatever you want. But just choose it consciously, with love and no jealousy.
  3. Both types are not fun to date. From your perspective, one is better because it means you are less likely to get hurt. From the guy's perspective, all of them are weak in different ways. Jealousy is a weakness. You can actually feel it in your body; it is an emotion close to fear because it comes when you feel threatened or are not strong enough to accept what is. You can tell a guy you want this type of relationship, or you don't want that type of relationship without being jealous. Jealousy is a mammalian emotion, and it reeks of humanness and apeness. You can smell it. The more conscious one becomes, the less they see their partner as "theirs" and others as "those" to whom you feel jealous. The more conscious one gets, the more one transcends jealousy. It is never easy, and cannot be done completely, but it is still worth doing. Out of all the emotions one has in relationships, jealousy is the most unremarkable and petty one I experienced. It goes against our higher nature. It closes your heart, it fills your mind with absurd thoughts, and it makes people act in ugly ways. No one wants to hear this, everyone likes to justify and rationalize jealousy. It is normal for us humans to feel it, but that doesn't mean it is actually normal. No judgment to the jealous type, we are all human but also more. We can be more. Also:Of course, it goes without saying that guys are just as jealous as girls. However, their jealousy is even more dangerous because it is aggressive and wounds their masculinity, just like chimps.
  4. This is what I'm telling you. I am not monogamous and I tell all the girls I meet that first thing. Faithful is not reserved for the monogamous. You want exclusivity not just faithfulness. I am in an open relationship and I am faithful to her, just not in the same way you define "faithful." So did he tell you that he is monogamous?
  5. I should elaborate when I say I was non-reactive. I simply mean I did not reply to anything nor argued back. Throughout the next 2 hours, I tried to keep bringing different subjects. I was joking, laughing, but she kept on starting drama, and it drained me. Then I left. What was ruined was my birthday. That is what I mean because I would have rather spent it alone than with someone arguing with me and being emotional and negative
  6. He sounds a lot like me. I also had my ex tell me to leave someone because she was jealous, and I literally replied the same reply your bf did. Take it from someone who's like-minded: People like us are not meant to have monogamous relationships. And the more someone tries to contain us, the more we resent it. He should be in an open relationship. He should be clear about what he wants and what he doesn't want. Was he not clear with you from the beginning? Because if he doesn't get jealous, then why is he monogamous? 99% of people are monogamous because they are jealous or find it to be too emotionally taxing, whether they want to admit it or not. If he doesn't have jealousy, then why be monogamous? I can't understand why.. Maybe he thought you would never say yes to an open relationship, so he did not tell you. Huge mistake, I've done it before, and I found it unbearable.
  7. I hate fighting when girls are on their period. I can't understand it. All the fights look so petty to me. On my bday, she fought with me even though I was non-reactive. It really ruined the day for me. I forgive her every time, of course, but I told her if she thinks she is going to PMS really bad, then avoid talking or seeing me because it ends with bickers that I do not want to be a part of. It is one thing to have fights that end with constructive critiques of one's actions and ultimately improve relationships. These fights are more like meaningless bickering that adds zero value and negativity, which is why I want to avoid them. I've had relationships before this one, and even though I experienced girls getting moody on their periods, this is something "stronger" than all the girls I've known. They acted in similar but less intense ways some of the time. But she acts like this almost every time and more intensely. I'm not the angry type at all. So I don't lash out at her, but I get really tired and agitated, but not angry. When she gets her period, her awareness drops. She exhibits all the nouns in psychology that describe someone with low awareness (projection, repression, denial). She uses false analogies to make her point. I see it as completely a waste of time to even talk or reason with her when she is PMSing. When she stops, she is fine and might even be more aware and more conscious and loving than me. It's weird. Hormones are a hella of a drug. Thoughts? Did I make the right choice in telling her to avoid me? Ladies, would you be upset if your man told you that (I think I already know the answer to that one, haha) note: I posted this by mistake on health fitness nutrition, so I reposted here.
  8. Alcohol works by increasing the activity of GABA in your brain. It also has dopaminergic effects. If you feel good when you drink, then you probably enjoy the feeling of elevated dopamine and GABA, as many people probably do. While there is nothing safe that will give you the same degree of neurotransmitter release as alcohol. Some compounds are dopamine/GABA modulatory. Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and Bromantane, for example. There are other nootropics that can modulate GABA. Lemon Balm-Apigenen-L Theanine- Magnolia Bark. Food is necessary for a healthy brain. So make sure you are on point with your diet. Kava is a plant that has been used for thousands of years. It increases GABA activity not by releasing it but by increasing the receptor density, or you could say sensitivity. It really gives you a buzz similar to alcohol. It doesn't produce tolerance nor withdrawal, nor will it cause liver failure.
  9. Worth watching: I enjoyed it. Examine how the materialist mind constructs and deconstructs reality and how different that is from someone who uses consciousness itself to deconstruct and construct reality. If you don't have time to watch all of this I recommend you skip to the part where Alan (the Buddhist) speaks: you will learn from it and he is an excellent orator.
  10. Not taking it personally, but you're mistaken. I'm sure many people think this way, but those who are wise know that love does not mean possession. Luckily I found someone who thinks like me. My own personal life directly invalidates what you claim to be the truth. You make it sound like being protective and being non-monogamous are mutually exclusive when they are not. Sneaky
  11. In this case, I mean they would let me try to win them over. I.e they would date me and get to know me and then decide. But some are turned off instantly when I mention I am in a relationship. So they are not trying to know me. That is what I mean
  12. You're right because most of them ended up being needy, except for a few who stopped seeing me because they found someone else. However, don't think that all girls are like that. I currently know a girl who only sees me because she enjoys my company and for sex. That is it. She talks to me about guys and has fucked my friend in the past. Women connect emotions to sex, which for them is inseparable. However, emotions do not equate to a relationship. For some women, promiscuity and adventure is more enthralling emotionally than a stable guy. It's true.
  13. I wasn't thinking highly of myself. I was replying to @Knowledge Hoarder when he said, "they want you for themselves," so the assumption being here is that they want me: so my answer was wouldn't they try to have me instead of losing interest? I don't know about thinking highly of oneself, but I do damn know that I value myself. Not a bad thing.
