Well, here it is…finally. The long awaited second of three posts regarding the results of my MGTOW survey. Apologies for the wait!
Once again, I want to thank the original 22 gentlemen who took time out of their days to respond to my survey. Whether you commented on the post, emailed me privately, or gave answers on forums, I really appreciated it. Guys, this literally couldn’t have been done without you!
