Yeah, I know this is not the most noble pursuit..

But relationships haven't really worked out for me the past few years..
And it's been a year since I've had sex, and before that it was a long time, too..

So I was thinking maybe I can at least get that to happen..

Is there something I can do to get laid sometime soon? 26.1.2.4>56

Line 26.4 sounds promising for sex (enclosing an animal, good fortune).

However, because of the rest of the lines and resulting 56, this sounds more like a one-off with a guy who has just split from his partner. So I guess the only thing you can do is aim for such a guy. Alternatively, it could be pointing to someone you split up with in the past - but again, it sounds like a one-off and not a reconciliation.

Sorry to hear about this situation... perhaps you can also ask if there's something you can do to meet someone with who to form a relationship?

Or how about a woman maybe, since I'm a heterosexual male?

Oh dear... my sincere apologies for my mistake. Just replace the word guy with woman, in what I wrote :rolleyes:

:rofl: I'm sure the advice still applies.

Another way to see this:

26 is about "Great Restraint" and "Accumulation" of energies.

Sure, you can "get laid". Plenty of opportunities to do that if you put yourself in the right milieu, (unless you have some specific issues on that score...). But the Yi might be saying you can catch yourself better nourishment in the future if you train/channel your desires and accumulate "virtue", not in the moralistic sense, but through the refinement of energies which will attract a more sustaining end result.

Not really what you want to hear I suppose, yet, that may be what the Yi is suggesting.

Is there something I can do to get laid sometime soon?


26.1.2.4>56

Line 1: Lots of energy but you need to wait a while longer otherwise you might create difficulties

Line 2: Conserving your energy for greater things. Why? because there's something in the situation that requires it. It's not your fault, it's just the way it is.

Line 4: The sexual imagery of a young bull's horns is obvious here. It's about controlling and regulating that energy so that it isn't harmful to you or another in a myriad of unforseen ways. That way you'll head off any future problems based on purely sexual need.

The background to this is 56 which might indicate you are in a transition period and/or a change in your perception on this issue.

26.1
Some past experience - or lack of it - is holding you back. Perhaps you're starting to think of yourself as destined to end up a celibate old sage.

26.2
Need to revise that story! Reinvent yourself - who you are, where you've been and particularly what you are looking for. Be really clear about what you are looking for.

26.4
Get yourself in shape. Become the gorgeous bull you were meant to be.

56. The Traveler - Now go out there and find her!

Other thoughts on The Traveler.
Perhaps you give the impression you are just moving through - not looking for a relationship. If this is true be careful about hitting on women who are engaged or in some way karmically destined to be with others. Don't go around breaking young girls hearts.

If this is not true, if you are looking for more than a one night stand, then I feel the I Ching is giving you guidance on an "as need to know" basis and right now all you need to know is what you are looking for and and to become the sort of person that sort of person would be attracted to and then to 56, get out and see what you can see.

Then after you spot her ask the I Ching what to do next.

That's exactly what I'm starting to feel, women lately the last couple years treat me like I'm really fun to be around, but just not attractive to them . Meanwhile a lot of them date a**holes and men who have nothing to offer(like no job and no car for example). It's exasperatingly painful and the result is I've started to feel like an untouchable freak.

So I've asked, what to do to break the learned helplessness 2.1.2.6 > 41

I've been thinking back and there was a time when this all seemed to have started, about a year and a half ago, I remember I tried to kiss someone and experienced rejection, and most times in the last year and a half I've tried to make that move I've been rejected, except for one girl, which is new for me and never happened before (Now, I'm not just going up and trying to kiss them, I hold their hand or touch their hair first to read their reaction which tells me if they are receptive to the kiss, like I always have)

So, I asked, Did something happen during this time period to make me unattractive? 12.6 > 45

2.1 - you can already see the first bad signs
2.2 - going about your business in a simple straighforward manner
2.6 - the battle between male and female about an old issue
41 - you lose
From this I infer that if you just go about your business as you have so far, you won't get any results.
2.6 points to an old issue, and 2.1 shows that you do know what it is (if you look carefully).

Did something happen during this time period to make me unattractive? 12.6 > 45
Line 12.6 says that something negative ended, and you started going out socially.
So perhaps the negative issue which 'ended' at that time, didn't in fact truly end, and has repercussions till now.

I Ching apart - you seem to be focused on sex only, and looking for sex only. Nothing wrong with that - however, imo, it's worth keeping in mind that the ladies who are after the same thing will usually prefer a hunk (regardless of his lack of character or car). So perhaps rethink your aims and approach (and targets).
