don't date girls on pills
25% of modern women are on pills of some sort. If you have any choice at all with women, though, you should not be dating these girls on pills.

In the 2019 psychological horror movie Midsommar, a girl with psychological problems accompanies her boyfriend and his pals to a weird cult festival in Sweden. The movie itself is bizarre. And it's pure fiction (and rather extremely so. The director dreamed up a death cult more depraved than the ancient Aztecs or Assyrians... and placed it in modern hippie Sweden).

However, there is one moral present in the movie I think is worth a highlight: don't date women on pills. Or women with severe psychological issues, for that matter.

In the same year that movie premiered, 2019, 23.70% of Americans were on a psychiatric drug. That includes things like:

  • Antidepressants (13.40% of the population)
  • Antipsychotics (3.53% of the population)
  • Mood stabilizers (7.40% of the population)

... and a host of other assorted brain-altering cocktails.

These pills have all kinds of effects on the brains of those who use them.

The numbers are slightly higher for older adults. But not much. 18-44 year olds make up 36.5% of the American population, and 33.8% of the American pill-using population.

The sex differences are stark. Women are 67% more likely to use psychiatric drugs than men are. If you go out enough, and meet enough women, you are going to meet a lot of women on pills.

What should you do with these women?

Should you treat them as normal?

Or should you treat them the same way their psychologist does -- as people who have something wrong with them -- and stay away?

I agree with this article.
I describe myself as a successful (career and girls) good looking, self improvement type of guy.
I am currently in a relationship with a girl on pills (anxiety)
The trade off being she is Very attractive, good career, And otherwise things are good, but the anxiety and pills drive me nuts. She can’t cope with anything without pills. The slightest inconvenience happens and she’s turning to anti anxiety medications. She is also irrational in thinking, always has reasons she can’t make things better in her life to reduce anxiety causing stimuli, and gets upset with me when I try to push the issue when it goes against what she thinks. When I disagree with her on a topic she takes it personally like it’s an attack on her and she gives me the silent treatment. Everything with this girl seems like she thinks everyone is out to get her.

Honestly, I’m in love with her, we live together, and I’m willing to put in some time to try and achieve some change. But she talks a lot about change with no actionable steps or follow through.

In my field of work, I come into contact with a lot of troubled women. They almost all claim to have anxiety and depression. It’s a red flag.

While I respect your opinion on pills I disagree with your belief that prescription of meds is purely for prescribed for profit and that mental disorders can be treated thru other means. Being someone who used to have severe depression I would never have beaten it and improved my mental health without zoloft and I probably wouldn't have been able to get through college because of how miserable I constantly was. It was the worst time of my life. I almost jumped off my building because I hated life so much and didn't want to live. I knew no whatever self affirmations I told myself or positive memories I recalled was a bullshit tactic and I knew my problem was neurological before I even was formally diagnosed. Mental disorders are a chemical imbalance in the brain and for some people the right amount can help. For depression serotonin and dopamine levels are low which is why a person's mood is so poor and they're feeling unhappy and hopeless. Meds don't always work and sometimes it can make a person's condition worse which is sad,but I don't think that happens most of the time. I used to work with this dude in a kitchen and he was the most quiet guy there was and he always looked anxious and barely socialized with others so I talked to him and really got to know him deeply and I realized this guy was really anxious and insecure deep down. I got to know him,heard his life story and encouraged him to not let anxiety control his life and to improve on himself and he ended up seeing a therapist for the first time and got on anti anxiety meds and the next time I saw him I noticed a big difference. While he didn't immediately become a social butterfly he definetly opened up more to other people and was more confident. He even asked a girl out lol. So while I know the main premise of this article was better to not date women who are on pills I just wanted to share a story that meds can make a drastic positive differences in people's lives sometimes.

Nice article, Chase. I have anxiety/OCD issues myself but I never liked the idea of drugging myself to fix it. It always felt dangerous, altering my brain with chemicals. I've finally seriously reduced my anxiety by doing daily Trauma Releasing Exercises. No drugs involved. It wasn't fun, but man did it work.

This reliance on drugs reminds me of how doctors used to think lobotomies were great for patients. Now we cringe looking back. Truly horrible stories of lobotomies. Will we do the same decades later with all these brain-altering drugs?

There's been advancements in knowledge and technology. But I think we're still stabbing in the dark to some extent.

And I wonder about the effects of these drugs on offspring as well.

I think as civilization advanced, we got too dangerous for our own good. So for all these primal issues and struggles, we've developed tech to mitigate (drugs, porn, super tasty and high-calorie food, tv). The problem is we don't have circuit breakers to stop us. Because we never needed one before all this tech.

Curious how this will all pan out. Maybe we'll create self-sufficient AI and pass the baton to them, lol.

1) What if you discover she's on pills or attending therapy late into a relationship? Say, six or twelve months into the relationship. I know most people suffer from *that bias where you have invested so much in something, and now that you're unsure about it, you don't feel like losing it anyway because of the investments you made*. Would you break up with her? If so, how would you go on about that? (Assuming you never noticed anything, and she's been keeping it a secret because it's her deal and not yours - although I'm aware that most people like this are not sane).

2) You only mention birth control pills, but I suspect you mean any measure of birth control that involves female sex hormones since they all have those "adverse" effects on what she values and gets attracted too. In any case, how do you go on about protection the first time you sleep with her vs sleeping with her after few months of being in a relationship? (If you don't want to tell what you specifically do, then any recommendation would be fine too).

Any advice on dating in a post-pandemic world? Where can you meet girls now with this virus shutting down a lot of social elements?

An interesting article. I wanted to get your opinion on something since you seem very knowledgable.

Certain types of sickness seem to make me "not normal". Examples:

After operation in hospital years ago, vomt little bit of blood, I then "bargained" with God to not throw up again in return for me doing xyz.
Another time, I took some antibiotics, they were liquid and a bit gluggy, I may have taken too much on accident, along with not having enough food with them. that night, I felt very sick, and I was very cold despite it being summer, I then "bargained" with myself? or anyway things like "no more fast food, only fresh fruit from now on". I then went to bed under many blankets.
There's 2x examples of me not being 'normal'. But in those instances, I bargained and I also was "okay" I guess.

Now, fast forward to me getting glandular fever/mono from esptein barr virus. That involved vomiting, and I also was not calm, had to call someone.
I vomited from strepthroat in 2016, and again was not calm, and was bargaining.
Last year, food poisoning. Vomited, and this same mood, bargaining.

However, ever since the mono, this mood has been, way more intense. I know for example when you get epstein barr virus, it rewrites your gene code. this makes me wonder if since then, I've not been the same and hence why my "reaction" to this type of sickness is alot more worse.

But what does it feel like? well, it just..... its hard to describe, but it feels like way too hypersensitive. Too much energy in the head.

it does NOT feel like approach anxiety.

approach anxiety:
adrenaline in blood
super fast heartrate

this "energy"
no butterflies
no adrenaline in blood
no super fast heartrate

But any 'thought', any touch, any stimulus, its all "blown out of proportion" compared to normal. For example, food on my teeth, normally im fine. but when this sickness happens, its too much energy in my head somehow.

I sometimes think about trying an antidepressant or something , antianxiety when this happens? But I've seen the side effects and stuff

I've tried doing things like breathing, but it works a bit, and then once I stop, this energy comes back. BUT once I stop feeling sick, I go back to normal. So like, its not within my control, the breathing is a distraction, it doesn't fix the cause if that makes sense?

To add to my last comment, I had not finished editing. I thought the save button meant save, not post, lol.

But a bit more information:
approach anxiety, I can "walk away" if I choose to.
approach anxiety, my mood goes back to normal if I do walk away, or if I approach.
approach anxiety, does not make me nauseous or sick etc.
approach anxiety, does not have 'too much energy in the head' or feel stuff on teeth or hypersensitive or feel nauseous, etc

contrast the above with this anticalm
I'm not in control, I can't "stop feeling sick" like this. Once the sickness goes away, eg finish vomiting, then I'm back to normal. So unlike AA, I can't walk away from this.
This energy when feeling nauseous, it doesn't feel like normal butterflies, it doesn't feel like "fight or flight", it feels different.

Here is the link to possibility of EBV editing genecodes,, its unsecure. There may be a better more recent link thats been more validate,d I'd need to find it. I don't think I have chronic fatigue, just using that as an example that I haven't been the same since getting EBV.

I wondered if you've heard of anything like this before, and if you know anyone who has taken prozac or something like that?

Because the examples of this too much energy, are all from biological causes.
eg its normal to throw up after operation,
its normal to throw up during glandular fever
its normal to throw up during strepthroat
its normal to throw up during food poisoning
its normal to feel very sick if take too much antibiotics without food
I'm not convinced this "stress", when it has biologica causes, its just very difficult to describe this energy.
