Post 1: An invitation

I've taken The Red Pill. I've seen how my life was about to go down the tubes due to an excess of Beta-tude, and I've started to transform myself. Come along on the journey and see what happens.

Background: I'm in my 50's with a nice professional career. My wife is a decade and a half younger than me, with a professional career of her own. I recently got a wake-up call and realized that I was going to lose her unless something changed, and I knew that the only thing I have the power to change is me.

I found Athol Kay's blog and bought his book.  That was about a month ago. My life and my marriage have already improved considerably.

I found out that I was already doing a few things right, purely by accident or instinct. And I found out exactly what I was doing wrong. It's going to take a few posts to catch you all up on my back story. There's a lot of my history that I'm not proud of, but try not to hate me. I'm a better man now than I've ever been in my life.

So come, join me on my journey. I don't know how this is all going to turn out, but I can promise that we'll have some fun along the way. Some drama and pain, too, but mostly fun.
