As per our announcement last week today we launch our first ever ban-amnesty AMA debate thread in which anybody from anywhere on Reddit can come challenge our opinions and ideas with no fear of retribution, censorship, or banning.

WE ARE STILL ENFORCING REDDIT'S TOS AND POSTING GUIDELINES

So while a good-natured ribbing is fine, please don't single out users and harrass them - this is against reddit's rules and we rather not have to step in.

The mods will be taking a very hands-off approach to this thread. Any ideas and comments not expressly against reddit's rules are fair game except one rule:

ALL TOP LEVEL COMMENTS MUST BE A QUESTION OR CHALLENGE FOR TRP.

Feel free to debate and discuss anything you'd like here.

Understand that this thread may be heated and I don't expect any debaters to pull punches if you're easily offended or worried you might be offended, I recommend that you simply do not participate in this thread. We are starting a second thread linked here which we will be moderating for civility and topic, this might be a better choice for you.

ARE YOU BANNED?

As per our announcement last week, we are offering ban-amnesty today. If you were previously banned, please PM me and I will unban you to participate in these two threads.

However, if you start wandering into other threads and start trolling, you will be swiftly banned. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED


IF YOU GET RATE-LIMITED

If you get rate limited because of downvotes, contact me and I will add you to our approved submitters list.

The RedPill, and this subreddit, offers a lot of wisdom, truth, and guides to becoming a better man.

But why the hell are so many posters so fucking antagonistic? Calling anyone who doesn't understand everything right away a faggot, for example. Can you imagine if other philosophies or life improvement groups did that? It's a big part of the reason some people just write you off as angry assholes - some of you seem far more interested in puffing your chests out and insulting people than you are in helping others improve.

[-] FereallyRed 36 Points 2 months ago

I answered this deeper in the thread, but here's the pasta...

Bad words are a filtering tool. If me calling you a fag makes you lose your shit, then I know I don't need to waste any more time with you, because you're concentrating on the tone, not the content.

Bruce Lee quote....

'Its like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.'

Plus, write to your audience. There are for the most part angry young men here. They are through with simpering platitudes and bullshit advice., the so called Disney dream. That's not working for them. They want the fucking truth.

Fight club quote...

“We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.”

Last, it's a locker room. Where I can say pretty much what I want. That's an exceedingly rare space for men anymore, as most of the world has been feminized to the point that even saying a bad word is "toxic". You know, toxic may be the worst word out there. It means, I'm offended. I don't give a shit. You can be offended all you want. Your feelings are your own, I have no onus to change my behavior to supplicate to anyone.

Blue velvet quote...

"Fuck you, you fucking fuck"

[-] WorkWorkZubZub 36 Points 2 months ago

Thanks for the thought out reply. Bitch.

[-] FereallyRed 18 Points 2 months ago

Anytime, fag.

[-] max_peenor 10 Points 2 months ago

Locker room talk is by necessity rough. It is meant to filter out weakness. I'm not saying homosexuals are weak, bloops. The weakness refers to opinions, intellectual confidence and engagement. If you can't take someone calling you a faggot, then I doubt you have anything of value to offer.

That said, the mods shut down AMOGing assholes pretty quick. So yeah, don't go around calling everyone a faggot.

This is the only place I talk like this. In my head, if I'm spending my time helping other dudes just to get their dick wet, then I can say what ever the fuck I want to them.

[-] redblueninja 25 Points 2 months ago

Why is trp open to people? If you have knowledge of something the general people either don't know about or don't believe it to the point of shunning trpers, then why does trp try to help other blue-pilled guys.

Wouldn't it be beneficial to individual redpillers to just keep this knowledge among themselves, have a competitive advantage in the SMP and truly enjoy the decline?

[-] redpillschool 47 Points 2 months ago

As others said (Iron sharpens Iron). None of us is as smart as all of us.

We can compare notes and improve on our strategies. Can't do that if we don't have at least some amount of openness.

[-] CainPrice 44 Points 2 months ago

I don't try to help "guys" in general. Most guys are idiots.

I try to help you. Or him. Or that other specific guy over there.

If just one man reads something I typed today and starts lifting weights and talking to girls in line at Starbucks, I did more good today with that 15 minutes during my lunch break than I did during the entire workday at my day job.

[-] redblueninja 9 Points 2 months ago

That's a respectable motivation.

[-] Bear-With-Bit 2 Points 2 months ago

[-] CainPrice 7 Points 2 months ago

You do know that when 99.9 percent of normal, average guys talk to 99.9 percent of normal, average girls in line at Starbucks, nobody makes a scene, right?

This idea that if you dare talk to a girl in public when you're not hot, she'll start shouting you down and shaming you, and the entire room will go silent, then join in crucifying you for daring to talk to a girl while not hot and accusing you of being a rapist - that doesn't actually happen. That's just internet manosphere fearmongering.

If you talk to a girl and she's not interested, she just won't look up from her cell phone and will tell you to buzz off. Nobody will even notice.

[-] bowhunter6 1 Point 2 months ago

Why are you so worried about what others think of you?

[-] FereallyRed 15 Points 2 months ago

You need to continually harvest food for the village or the village dies.

A fresh influx of new ideas and new blood is necessary as there is a leveling off of the knowledge base here, and attrition as those who have achieved what they needed here leave.

You have to thresh and winnow, though, to remove the chaff from the wheat. That means you beat and throw the grains into the air so the useless bits blow away. That's why TRP is not a "safe space". If you're offended by direct talk, then you're probably chaff and useless to the community. Blow away, we're only interested in the solid useful chunks.

Plus, there is a community aspect to this, as much as we say,"do things for yourself, do the things you want to do", well, that doesn't preclude helping others if that's what you want to do.

That said, the chaff here is almost Pareto principle level (80:20) rule, and that's where a lot of the statements that TRP is full of angry misogynist losers comes from. They haven't learned, never will.

We're such a small percentage of the population that redpill to redpill competition is unlikely, and if I did meet a redpill guy in the wild, he's be a kindred soul. No need to hoard knowledge.

[-] SynergisticSuccess 15 Points 2 months ago

For me, it’s about becoming a better man above anything else.

Ever since following TRP years ago, my life went from a depressing pile of shit, to a glorious example for other men that I surround myself with.

Sharing red pill wisdom/truths/etc won’t work on everyone; and that’s fine. But the few that picked up some of the info have also seen improvements in their every day life.

Also, abundance mindset; Stop being concerned that there won’t be enough pussy/money/etc out there for you.

[-] VasiliyZaitzev 11 Points 2 months ago

When I was younger, before there was a TRP, fuck before there was an internet (in the way that it exists today) older men helped me. I'm simply paying it forward.

Beyond that, with BILLIONS of women in the world, supply will never run out for high-value men.

Incidentally, my inbox overflows with "Thank you for your post on 'X'" and "Thank you for answering my question on askTRP, it really made a difference in my life."

To me, that's much more satisfying than trying to screw someone over.

[-] redpillcad 10 Points 2 months ago

Plenty to go around. TRP operates out of sense of abundance

[-] MentORPHEUS 10 Points 2 months ago

Some people climb the ladder of life and help those who follow. I consider myself somewhat of a Red Pill Bodhisattva, in that my own enlightenment feels incomplete and inadequate if I cannot bring others to it.

Others climb the ladder of life and pull it up behind themselves and gladly stomp on the heads of those who aspire to the same path. I can't relate to this type of hypercompetitiveness but it exists on a spectrum and correlates strongly to "masculine" identities for different underlying reasons.

[-] max_peenor 5 Points 2 months ago

knowledge of something the general people

When you see an obese person stuffing their face, do you believe they think it is a good idea? That they don't know they are harming their health?

[-] redblueninja 1 Point 2 months ago

I fail to see how that relates to my question.

[-] max_peenor 5 Points 2 months ago

Because knowledge isn't the problem. People know better. Most of what we say we can stealth even bloops into agreeing with as long as we stroke their egos and fragile sensibilities enough. The problem is when we don't reject the donut, even if we know the donut is fake.

[-] redblueninja 1 Point 2 months ago

That clears it up. Thanks

[-] krowitz 5 Points 2 months ago

Knowledge is shared here with the knowledge that many would not accept it as it is. It may be open to people, but not everyone would believe in it.

The competitive advantage is not needed, plenty of fish in the sea. If the fish do run out, I'm sure it is my fault.

Iron sharpens Iron, we can learn from each other with what works with women. Avoid pitfalls etc. If i can learn from 10 other guys within a month what would take me a year or 2 on my own. Why wouldn't i? In addition humans are social animals who like to share & cooperate if their is a shared benefit.

The aim is to help men get laid & improve themselves. Your odds of being in direct competition with someone also on TRP is quite low also.

​

[-] redblueninja 2 Points 2 months ago

You made some great points.

Iron sharpens Iron, we can learn from each other with what works with women. Avoid pitfalls etc. If i can learn from 10 other guys within a month what would take me a year or 2 on my own. Why wouldn't i?

If you've been here for more than 1-2 years, I doubt you can learn anything from the majority of posts here.

In addition humans are social animals who like to share & cooperate if there is a shared benefit.

What are the benefits of sharing and cooperating with newbies and bluepillers for you?

Let me give you an example: Americans have a shared benefit of sharing and cooperating in their country. But there is a barrier to entry in the country and rightfully so. The barrier to entry to trp is an internet connection and being an incel, heartbroken or both.

[-] Isbjornsolo 2 Points 2 months ago

Your right. Once you’ve got the basics. Most of the posts are newbies spouting the same stuff. However the ECs distribute some funny articles with nuggets of gold.

Personally I help because I know what it’s like to be on a long cold streak and if any advice I can give can break it. Then it’s no skin off my back.

The mutual benefit if more of a passing down the chain. The more established members help raise others up and so on.

[-] Proto_Sigma 1 Point 2 months ago

Established people also get the payment of stroking their ego. This is a topic they're interested in and they take pride in being good at it. They take more pride in being praised and respected by a community, a pleasure that is somewhat rare in a world of more fractured communities yet a deep human need. There is an altruistic impulse as well where it can be pleasurable to help others if it is of your own volition.

[-] EkMard 3 Points 2 months ago

It is better if more Caucasoid (Europoid race) people in places where Caucasoids are a large group, and especially places such as the West where Caucasoids are native, become red-pilled. They need it, and deserve it. Of course, the "deserve" part is idealistic, and separate from a red-pilled persective. But when the opposite is pushed on them, I want them to rise up, even if those who succeed with such information are a minority. Actually, it is better that way. Only good genes deserve to mate.

[-] Mojiitoo 2 Points 2 months ago

Well, its about where you come from too. If I never stumbled on the red pill, Id probably be very miserable atm. Im glad I found the missing puzzle piece in my life.

All it took was realising I am responsible for my actions. A purpose. Getting fit. A job. Finished my bachelors.

I love to help my friends with lowkey trp truths and I am open to help anyone who needs support so that they can get their life back on track.

[-] TheGreatGatzb 2 Points 2 months ago

As you traverse this microcosm of humankind’s total existence you tend to run into a bunch of dumbasses

The douche in the red Porsche with a Napoleon complex who neglected to replace his blinker fluid

The boss who sits on his ass & leads from the back

College losers who get fatter while smoking pot all day

And more

It’s very seldom you meet someone else who is driven, self-motivated, & wants to make smart changes for intrinsic reasons

It’s ever rarer when there’s a whole group on them sharing notes in one place

When you meet those people you help lift each other up.

As the old cliché goes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”

Not everyone is worth helping, & they have to be willing to help themselves

This is a community full of people who have been lead to the water, drank it, & are finding others who want to drink water too.

It’s really that simple.

[-] ChrimsonChin988 1 Point 2 months ago

I have a teacher who teaches one semester every year for about 50 hours in total. He is paid maybe 200$/hr. He probably makes 1000s$/hr working for his own investment firm. Why does he do it?

  1. ABUNDANCE he doesn't give a fuck about a few more or a few less dollars. Money doesn't mean that much when you have plenty. Same applies to women. When you have more poon on your hands than you can handle it doesn't hurt to give some good advice away for free, even if it might cost you some pussy in the future somehow.

  2. He enjoys teaching. He actually wants to start teaching more.

  3. Paying it forward. Very satisfying feeling. Perhaps the most satisfying feeling there is.

[-] Gnosiis_ 24 Points 2 months ago

As a red-pilled man I want to take this opportunity to voice my displeasure about the simple correlation of Liberal = Beta SJW, cuck, etc., and Conservative = Chad, strong etc.

While I can't stand the left's constant sense of victimhood, I really can't stand the right-wing supremacy that goes on in this subreddit. Men with alpha traits come all along the spectrum of right and left. In my experience righties tend to be no-nonsense and rigid, but usually not too bright. (No offense). But from a redpill standpoint it works. However as a liberal I feel my tolerant mindset and community-driven values contribute to society more effectively. Now you could make the argument that self > society but I stand by principle.

Anyways, enough of the right-wing supremacy. It really puts me off when I come back to read up occasionally. Thanks.

[-] KeffirLime 31 Points 2 months ago

The red pill does not align itself politically.

In the current climate however, it seems to be incompatible with a larger portion of the left.

It's incompatible with parts of the right too, however I'd argue there's less of a war on masculinity being championed from the right.

The influence of feminism and "toxic masculinity" are factors of the left that greatly influence the sexual market place, masculine identity and sexual strategy and therefore influence the discussion of the red pill far more.

[-] Gnosiis_ 2 Points 2 months ago

I agree with you feminism is definitely affecting the SMP. Their imperative is power and control without worry of consequences. Hypergamy is destructive. However, feminists still crave alpha traits no matter how much they squeal. Does the feminist movement really affect YOU personally? How many girls have you missed out on? The feminist movement will lose power when people - particularly strong men - call them out for their deception. As I said it's about power and control, and limiting the amount of beta contact they suffer from, not true equality of the sexes. As my feminist baby-mama says, penis envy is a real thing. I'd actually be fine with a little pussy-power, but as I've seen time and time again, women are not very responsible with power.

[-] redpill77 1 Point 2 months ago

I too am wary of the right wing supremacism. I try to temper against it, but because there're so few comments from a liberal perspective, I find myself thinking: 'well feminism provides a great argument against allowing women to have power' and 'social safety nets are very vulnerable to abuse by single mothers.' I still consider myself a liberal, but I'm becoming skeptical of the efficacy of social programs, because so many people will just leech and not do anything, which is unfair to anyone who pays taxes on income from a job they don't like.

The red pill is incompatible with liberal bourgeoisie values, it puts you off because you're still blue pill. Let's look at an intolerant and strong society do you think any of these men would have trouble getting laid or telling their wife what to do? If you don't like white people then let's look at the intolerant Muslims in the middle east, they certainly don't need any help getting sex. Women are attracted to strong men.

Today men living in Western liberal countries you're taught that masculinity is bad, which is essentially symbolically castrating and weakening men. Now men need to go on the internet to find a vagina guide to learn how to stick it in a woman, and even that is becoming too "toxic and hateful" (Red Pill is 1 step away from being deleted). Your liberal petty morality of tolerance and equality got us into this situation, if you can't understand this then it's best to unsubscribe now.

[-] Gnosiis_ 3 Points 2 months ago

I hate feminist ideology. Feminists values are left-leaning, but please don't try to lump us all in neat little boxes like you conservatives tend to do. Don't confuse feminist ideology with liberalism as an ideology. You fail to understand the basic premise of liberalism. What I hope to achieve is to allow everyone the same opportunity. What you do with that opportunity is up to you. Either use it or squander it. No one should be deprived of basic human rights or anything less than their neighbor. Everyone deserves the same starting point. Most of you (in bluepill fashion) will say to "enjoy the decline". Does a leader watch as the world burns around him? Does an alpha man not seek ambition and power in order to put the fire out?

The redpill does not put me off. Right-wing values put me off. I'm a very powerful man in a very powerful position. I can choose to share my power with people who have less than I do, or I can hoard it for myself. Does it make me soft for doing this? Do I lose any power for showing GRACE? Does the right's constant need for safety and security prevent them from doing the same? When I came across theredpill I instantly realized the wisdom of it. I was always good looking but red pill wisdom put me over the top. I'll leave you with this: I'm getting ready to make a very public appearance. You'll know me when you see me. My name is Gnosiis.

[-] Joshua_Pectorals 1 Point 2 months ago

When your main moral values are tolerance, equality, and progress, liberalism quickly turns into feminism and always will.

Women want to murder their babies? Their body their choice! Gays want to get married and have sex with your children? Love is love bigots! Letting a bunch of foreigners outbreed you and destroy your culture? It's good for the economy!

What's happening in Europe and US is absolutely degenerate and disgusting. My goal is to accelerate the decline by allowing more liberalism so it will collapse the country and something beautiful can be built after.

[-] Tarmyniatur 0 Points 2 months ago

Letting a bunch of foreigners outbreed you and destroy your culture? It's good for the economy!

Thinking you belong to a certain geographical area just because you were born here and trying to deny others access to your geographical area is such a stupid idea if you think really clearly about it.

Women want to murder their babies? Their body their choice!

This could work in your favor, say you don't want children and accidentally impregnate a chick, do you want to be financially responsible for it?

That's retarded. I'm middle eastern and most men are beta af. They have no issue getting married and the marriage is generally secure with kids and commitment. Dudes do not sleep around more though. You literally have to marry a girl to get pussy, in the west you just have to buy her dinner and be good conversationalist.

[-] Joshua_Pectorals 5 Points 2 months ago

I used National Socialist Germany and Middle Eastern Muslim countries as an example of anti-liberal masculine countries that don't need to log on to a fringe corner of the internet to read AlphaAnalGaper66's 10 point guide on how to put your dick in a whore. They know how because they're masculine.

Not sure how it's a bogeyman when the SPLC, Silicon Valley, University, Mainstream Media, Payment Processors, Banks, Politicians, all work in accordance to vehemently supress and eliminate right wing, conservative, red pill views, thus enforcing the blue pill on people. But I guess it's just in my head right?

The SPLC got TRP quarantined out of hate for masculinity and Europeans.

I'd rather live in a fascist country than one that wants you broke, dead, and brainwashed for the color of your skin and being naturally masculine, and I'm sure many others here would too.

Does anyone else feel kinda lonely in a RP world? I look around me and just see everything as some sort of pre-conditioned game that we're all playing out where we all just seek validation from each other and nobody really connects or does anything meaningful. Then I feel like I can't talk to anyone about it because the notions and ideas in TRP are fairly unknown and people won't really understand. I can't/don't want to talk to any girls i'm seeing about it because any time you try confide in a women it just shows weakness, and my guy mates won't really get it either. I just feel stuck and like I can't connect with anyone really.

I know game, I'm fairly popular, i've fucked over a hundred women, I've been happy most of my life, but as I'm hitting 30 soon it just feels a little empty and hollow and I don't know how to find fulfillment and joy in a post-red pill world. Anyone else found something similar or how to help fix it?

[-] HumanSockPuppet 37 Points 2 months ago

What is the problem with Games? As Eric Berne puts it, "Games are substitutes for real living and real intimacy". They have “ulterior quality” and have profit as their goal. “Every game … is basically dishonest”.

There is only one answer to the lack of intimacy, and always have been: friends.

[-] [deleted] 6 Points 2 months ago

Yes, I'm beginning to feel that reality. at 27, soon to be 28. Mostly I think about how I'll be gone someday and so will everyone I see throughout my normal day. Things like leaving a legacy are meaningless, as everyone who remembers you when you are gone will be dead as well...there's no point in trying to be remembered as eventually every atom will break down into nothingness at the end of the universe anyway, so, life is pretty meaningless other than the meaning we choose to give it. I choose self-betterment. It certainly beats indulging in things like drinking to intoxication every night and jerking off and playing video games. Some might disagree. For me, the game sort of fills in the gaps between life and death. It makes reality easier to swallow too. If someone steals my cell phone, I wouldn't care as much anymore. People do things to further their own interests, whether it's stealing your shit, fucking your bitch, taking your credit, or just plain fucking you over...it doesn't really matter, it's just a game.

&#x200B;

A far as making it better? I don't think it gets better...I see people laughing at jokes, but part of me believes its some sort of insecurity about death. Life isn't really that funny. It's cognitive dissonance within jokes that usually makes us laugh. The more I understand reality, the less funny things get. And maybe I'll become funnier to people for speaking the truth, which most are unwilling to accept and instead they spin it into comedy. I suppose it's a way of unplugging people gently, through comedy.

Tl;dr: Live, Game, Die

[-] odaklanan_insan 4 Points 2 months ago

If a set of ideology cannot give you all the answers, it cannot be the truth alone.

You have found the red pill, but your'e not fully unplugged. TRP is only book one. It introduces you to the ugly truths of reality. It aims to make you strong and compromise those hostilities.

Now you need to find book 2, which introduces you to the beautiful truths of reality and more answers (which is not less difficult to swallow than TRP) and who knows where that will lead you... Fullfillment, is knowing that you're doing the thing you were born to do. You need to go after it at least as much as anything TRP offers.

I dont think the answer is trying to find a unicorn, awalt etc. It's more about the whole ideology and mentality behind trp, which I agree with, but not quite sure how to proceed

[-] i_have_a_semicolon 1 Point 2 months ago

i mean, well. awalt is faulty. all women are not literally the same there is some variation obviously. TRP stipulates that getting close is opening yourself to getting fucked over because you cant control her actions, you can only control your actions. Being vulnerable is hard and means you can get hurt but theres also a pay off in the sense that this existential emptiness goes away.

[-] zyqkvx 1 Point 2 months ago

Being vulnerable alone is not the silver bullet. Thinking so will give you moments in which you believe you finally got what you wanted. This feeling will pass soon when she says or does something to shatter the illusion. The truth is all interactions between human beings is the same as dog training. You just have to be the wiser, smarter, just-er dog trainer, and not be trained by stupid dog trainers. After that there's more room for vulnerability that isn't dysfunctional. There's usually room for some vulnerability.

[-] i_have_a_semicolon 1 Point 2 months ago

I believe more people are capable of genuine non illusatory love, attraction, and commitment. The ability to be open with each other is very important to having a bond.

[-] Self-honest 21 Points 2 months ago

My main issue with most (probably all) feminist discourse I see is that it only takes aim at men, what men do that is bad, what men need to do to change, how men can make women's oppressed lives better, what is toxic about men, who is the latest target of outrage etc.

If anyone wants to be taken seriously, I need to see them talking about what THEY can do, what's wrong with THEM, what toxic behavior do THEY need to cut out, what horrors they impose on others, how they are contributing to the problem etc. in conjunction with external problems.

Outsiders probably think TRP only bashes women, and complains about their behavior and things we would, in our misogynistic minds, change about women.

I believe TRPs inclination to inspect and change the behavior of men to better the situation for men, as opposed to the feminist concept of inspecting and attempting to change the behavior of men to better the situation for women, is what validates it.

My question is this: what are the behaviors you recognize in men that you think ARE actually detrimental to women and men (if any exist)? Why they exist? And what should be done (if anything) to resolve any issues?

[-] CainPrice 23 Points 2 months ago

Mentally ill men who don't get help and end up snapping then murdering and raping people are detrimental to women.

Fathers who don't teach their sons conventional masculinity end up with angry sons who can't get laid and have a harder time succeeding professionally. Indirectly, this harms women because they have fewer good men to date and non-masculine loser men are more likely to shoot up schools and other public places and rape people.

[-] itiswr1tten 12 Points 2 months ago

A lot of men are commodity fetishists. They have no religion, they have no God, they have no greater belief than the objects they accumulate. This behavior can extend to women as well, and for the men who do truly end up lonely, alone, and terribly sad , it's usually a result of this particular behavior.

All the hardcore Reds will tell you that they love women. We might express it in different ways but ultimately we understand them better than anyone else. The saddest intermediate Reds are the ones who became attractive and then decided to take revenge on women

didn't figure. i've read a lot of GLO recent post railing on commodity fetishists. i'd say it get it and am guilty of it. what can i say, i like my toys.

having no existential purpose is the problem

"existential" is one of the $10 words that have different meanings to different people - so i looked it up. from Wiki - "An existential crisis is a moment at which an individual questions if their life has meaning, purpose, or value. ... This issue of the meaning and purpose of human existence is a major focus of the philosophical tradition of existentialism."

have never believed in god (even as an altar boy . . . lol). relative to purpose i would consider myself to primarily be a hedonist. my purpose is pursuit of pleasure and experience. said pleasure can take many forms - physical, intellectual, and ethereal (what i think most people ascribe to spiritual). i've never felt the need for a "higher purpose".

all that being said - i wouldn't consider myself a tranquil person - more driven.

btw - nice flair on MRP. maybe i'm getting you confused with someone else, but thought you had been previously/incorrectly banned.

[-] itiswr1tten 1 Point 2 months ago

Some guys don't need the higher purpose, their day to day life is plenty. This was more common before the modern world, think farmers tending to the crops. I use tranquil to mean "not in crisis" not calm demeanor. I'm existentiallly tranquil but personality wise a total psycho in the high energy way.

For many men it's a necessary part of the growth cycle. Just try not to stay there too long, because you're still putting them on a pedestal in a different way.

[-] redpill77 2 Points 2 months ago

When you realize that even though feminism is morally wrong that the most effective way to getting what you want in this world is through taking responsibility for the happiness and ethics of those around you, you will let things go so that you can make things better. Don't let things go in terms of accountability, but let them go emotionally.

If you're unable to avoid hating someone/something, that means you are under its power. Fix that.

[-] nicethingyoucanthave 10 Points 2 months ago

Great post. Well said. I've often made the same point right here in TRP. We talk about women because we're interested in them. If you try to imagine a group of women talking about their frustrations with dating, you will likely hear them complaining about men ghosting them and men not chewing with their mouth closed. That isn't meant to imply that women don't also do those things.

what are the behaviors you recognize in men

A great example is what we call "the hamster." What we mean by this is "post-hoc rationalization" or, making up an explanation for your behavior after the fact - an explanation that doesn't comport with the truth.

Picture some guy who thinks he's tough, brags that he would never back down from a fight. He gets confronted, and runs. Afterward, he makes up some excuse - "I would have fought him one-on-one but his buddies were there." That's just his hamster talking.

[-] Self-honest 2 Points 2 months ago

"the hamster."

[-] Whisper 6 Points 2 months ago

And what should be done (if anything) to resolve any issues?

You're trying to fit TRP into the same sort of mental space that feminism occupies.

TRP isn't a movement for social change. We do not judge "society" as bad or good, or have a plan for what we want to transform it into. Instead, we choose to regard it as the terrain... it's there, it is what it is, and we plan accordingly.

What we do here is teach men to navigate that terrain, for their own purposes.

[-] Self-honest 1 Point 2 months ago

I tell guys to get their asses off of the internet and talk to women. If you read too much crap on the internet about how to talk to women, it makes you stupid as you try to over-analyze and stress out over everything.

Just talk to 10,000 women. The first 9,999 times, it's going to be embarrassing and stupid and go very badly.

That's the hard work. There aren't any short cuts or cheat codes. There aren't any tricks. Once you learn the 15-minute basics of game, nothing you can read on the internet is going to teach you any special tricks that will get you out of doing this work. You have to talk to 9,999 women and embarrass yourself and endure the shame and learn from it.

We're all starting in different places. I got out of a really bad relationship, started online dating, and was getting laid on first dates.

You'd be surprised how many guys don't know how to talk to a woman in a way that makes her want to go on a date with them.

[-] willbrown72 15 Points 2 months ago

I don’t think it overly matters what the lifting numbers are currently as long as they are progressively increasing as many men here are either starting or haven’t been lifting long enough to have impressive numbers, but I’m sure there are some impressive yoked dudes in here. As far as good hobbies go, reading, hiking, socializing, and physical activities are all good. Anything that is either stimulating to the mind or where you are learning, meeting people and practicing game/being a social person, or being physically active is generally good.

[-] nefariousdestiny 1 Point 2 months ago

What do you say to games that are stimulating to the mind know the same way as a book, puzzle, or social activity? I read, bike, and write, but I also game a good amount. In my opinion it very much matters what types of games you play and how you approach gaming in general.

TRPers and ECs what are your ohp/bench/squat/deadlift #s?

No clue what my maxes are, but I exercise my core 3-4x week, and I also do extensive walking/hiking for general fitness, and I swim and play beach volleyball in the summer. For me it's more about general fitness and feeling good and not about getting big, although I am naturally able to gain muscle easily.

I spend zero hours a week on video games. The problem with video games is not that they exist, it's for guys who spend 4+ hours a day playing them, blowing up their free time.

As for hobbies, beach volleyball in season, and I write and perform original music. I also enjoy the shooting sports and SCUBA.

For young guys, esp teenage years, I would suggest playing at least one team sport to learn team work, and one individual sport to learn self-reliance. I'd also recommend the "social" sports - golf and tennis - although they are declining in importance I think, but still useful. Also, learning a martial art for fitness, discipline and confidence.

[-] max_peenor 6 Points 2 months ago

I have lifted since I was 13, as my brother was a very serious body builder and brought me into it. I was never remotely that ripped, as I valued functional strength and endurance over visual physique. (I did a lot of rough sports and then eventually military). I'm not as cut as I was at 30 but I'm far stronger than the vast majority of peers. I still lift frequently, but I've wrecked a number of my joints tot he point it limits me, so it's just to keep what strength I have. And at my age I realize it is a battle I will slowly lose.

I play maybe 3 hours of video games/week on average. I limit it to after important things like lifting are done.

I'm currently on a 5x5 program, with focus on slowing down the eccentric portion of each lift (Read: Lower #'s than normal lifting). All numbers are current working weight, not 1RM.
OHP: 95 lbs (fuck I hate OHP)
Squat: 145 lbs
Bench: 165 lbs
Deadlift: 255 lbs
Row: 165 lbs

I throw in 5 accessory lifts split between A/B workouts. And workout about 4-5/week. I'm still weak, but in the past 9 months, I put on 18 lbs with similar level of Body Fat %.

[-] nodepostgres 2 Points 2 months ago

I've been a climber for years and mostly focus on sport specific training now. Prior to climbing my best lifts were nothing special; approximately 155 / 245 / 315 / 375 for 5RM @ 165 lbs. They'd be much lower now since I primarily focus on things like finger strength and pulling strength. Squatting 3 plates just isn't beneficial in climbing.

I do watch TV and play video games - in limited amounts. My hobbies include climbing, mountaineering, reading, running, cooking, and backpacking. I'd recommend anything that allows you to learn or be physically active; there are too many options to list.

[-] [deleted] 1 Point 2 months ago

Took me 3-4 months lurking to get off my ass and start lifting. Stopped for a wrist injury for a few months, other than that I’m also 2yrs into lifting. Just got home from deads day. Wednesday is by far the best day of the week.

Lifting did change my life for all the reasons that we sell here. Confidence in myself and a sexy appearance. Camaraderie in the gym with the regulars. Hitting 2 plates on my deadlift was a moment I was incredibly proud of.

5RM

  • OHP - 105
  • Squat - 260 to depth
  • Bench - 155
  • Pull - 340

Hobbies are writing and side gigs in my off time from corpland. I smoke tall weed so that’s a hobby I guess. I use it as a reward: if I get these things done I can burn a bowl etc. I’d certainly offer the advice that weed is bad and to put it down without feeling like much of a hypocrite.

Let's discuss the ethics/morality of cheating

Have you any issue at all with sleeping with a women who is in a relationship if you are single? (Is it different is she is pursuing you or if you are pursuing her?)

Are you willing to cheat if you are in a relationship?

Are married women off limits at all?

[-] CainPrice 17 Points 2 months ago

Regarding women cheating, if a woman wants to cheat on her man with you, that's her business. She's the one who made promises to someone else, and she's the one breaking her promises to that someone else. You didn't make any promises to her significant other.

It's not your job to enforce her promises for her.

Regarding men cheating, if you promised somebody you were exclusive, then you cheat on her, that's not very moral. But you don't have to be a morally upstanding man to get laid. Lots of good people suck at getting laid, and lots of bad people get laid. In general, it's good to keep your word, whether you tell your boss you'll do something, tell your mother you'll do something, or tell your girlfriend you'll do something. Guys who say they'll do something then don't do it tend to suck. But it's not my job to keep other guys from cheating. It's not my job to enforce their promises for them.

[-] PosnerRocks 9 Points 2 months ago

There is a split in mentality that I have noticed here. Some people want to hold themselves to a higher standard of morality and respecting this institution. Being the change they want to see in the world.

Others believe that it isn't their business if a woman wants to cheat. If she was willing to sleep with you then she'll probably eventually find someone else to sleep with at some point. So enjoy the fling while it is there. She is an adult and has the agency to make her own decisions, even if poor ones.

Personally, it hasn't stopped me but I don't like to continue an affair. The drama and potential fallout just isn't worth my time. I don't need some angry husband showing up at my house because his wife was unfaithful.

As for cheating, I think the most important thing a man has is his word. If you are willing to enter a LTR and be exclusive, don't cheat. Pretty simple. If you aren't getting what you want from the relationship, man up and fix it or end it.

[-] itiswr1tten 8 Points 2 months ago

This is completely subjective.... It really depends on you. Thing is you stick to YOUR guns and not what everyone expects.

Me?

I have no issue with sleeping with a taken woman. My reasoning is if the bf/hubby had his shot together she wouldn't be pursuing me to begin with. In fact now that I think on it there hasn't been a single woman that was taken, and I slept with, that I ever pursued. It just doesn't happen that way especially when she sees you as valuable and/or she's a woman of "loose morals".

Would I ever cheat? I have before in LTRs... I won't now. But I also won't commit so there's that. In order for me to commit you'd have to really be something.

[-] FieldLine 3 Points 2 months ago

Are you willing to cheat if you are in a relationship?

This sounds exactly like how my ex would frame her side. But my ex is completely full of shit. She would say and do some truly fucked up things and then try to initiate a conversation and provoke me. Then she would beat the kids. And I bank rolled her private cash under the table businesses while she took the victim complex of both the entrepreneur and the SAHM when she insisted on both pursuing her dream career and being a SAHM. I caught her using blow, she blames me for not being there when it was offered to her on a GNO. She then convinced me to go to a neurologist because she was gaslighting me and I ended up spending an afternoon in a mental hospital after finding out that I was only her first husband. She exchanged vows with someone else (what did he care, it didn't mean shit to hi, it wasn't legal) after she had slept with 65 other people. That's what I get for marrying a sociopath.

Any progress on the quarantine? I think it's funny that on the side of the page it says "This community is quarantined: It is dedicated to shocking or highly offensive content."

Seriously?

It's shocking to tell a guy to lift, get his shit together (and how to do it), and how to be a man that women want to be around?

Highly offensive content?

Some woman can show her coochie or even a video or a woman having sex and all of the comments from thirsty beta's are NOT highly offensive?

I'm missing something here I just know it.

So, is anything going on or is there anything we can do to end it?

Oh, and what's PPD?

[-] WarViper1337 16 Points 2 months ago

I would imagine TRP will remain forever quarantined unless there is a drastic change in leadership over at reddit HQ. We haven't broken any rules and this sub reddit is very heavily policed by our mods for content. However we go against the feminist imperative and Reddit is not a very profitable company. They need outside investors and they only way to get them to sign on is appear as feminist friendly as possible.

[-] beachredwhine 4 Points 2 months ago

u / PurplePillDebate used to be a sub to debate between the blue pill and the red pill but now it's got a ton of whiny incels who migrated over after their sub got trashed for constant threats of rape and violence. There are a lot of rules that were put in place to shut them up, but much like that annoying little brother that won't leave you alone they won't go away.

Their theory is that only people born with the ability to get a girlfriend (normies) can ever get one and that no matter how much self improvement they do and how many girls they ask out they will never be able to get a girlfriend.

Both red and blue pills are united in despising these guys. So now the sub is a combination of false debate posts that are really just thinly veiled insults towards other members or so called "black pillers" (incel losers) claiming constantly that 80% of men are like them so it's all hopeless. Don't encourage them to commit suicide though that's against reddit sitewide rules.

What are your thoughts on Incels diluting your message? I'd say that at this point the average redditor assumes that the two groups are the same.

[-] redpillschool 26 Points 2 months ago

They're annoying. But then again, we're conflated with bunches of groups.

We've been called MRAs, ALT-Right, Incels, Misogynists, Racists, you name it!

But I don't think they've had much effect on the content itself here. NPCs just don't have enough memory slots to keep all the different groups their supposed to hate separated.

[-] -TheGreasyPole- 1 Point 2 months ago

There is also the fact that they have copied and used all of the RP terminology and concepts.

They use that to support their, wrong, view that it's hopeless for them.... but it's our concepts/terms they use to say that even if the conclusion they reach from them are diametrically opposed to RPs.

This poses a new challenge to RP than those other groups. It's literally becoming impossible to tell the two groups apart except by content of message.

Even very active long term users on PPD who know the two groups core beliefs very well, and are acutely aware of the distinction, blur the groups together in long term memory. As in, "Why are all the twerps so whiny, passive and depressed these days ?".

It's going to be a real problem for RP and TRP in the future if they keep growing, because most people are going to come across the terms via incels first.... and when they hear an RP person using them to describe OP, immediately discount listening to that line of thought because "Ah, it's just another incel whining".

[-] Whisper 1 Point 2 months ago

So, has PPD. So has TBP. The fact that our terminology is dominant is simply a reflection of the fact that we are dominant... we own the majority of the mindshare, and all these other groups are just a response to us, using our terms, thinking our thoughts, and spreading our ideas.

And?

They used to call us "misogynists" until it because clear that we gave zero fucks and that would stop us not at all.

Now it's "incel". We don't give a fuck about that, either.

Frankly, I'm glad the incels are hosting our memetic vectors. We might cure some of them. That's what we are for. If 100% of TRP is pussy slayers, then we would be a failure. Because we're not supposed to be a social group for dudes who are already pussy slayers. We're supposed to turn losers into pussy slayers. That means if there are no total losers here, right now, then we are failing our mission.

[-] -TheGreasyPole- 1 Point 2 months ago

So, has PPD

OK, no.

A lot of the ECs are making this mistake. PPD is NOT “TRP for being purple”. We are not using your language to promote a purple pill.

We are a place where RP can cone and debate other people who are not RP. We have no position of our own. We either present RP... OR... argue against it.

This does cause some of our member to say “Well some of RP is right, and some wrong, so I’ll take a purple flair to denote this position”.... but each of them doing so is “rolling their own” mix.

There is no purple stance common to our purple flairs. PPD does not present one. We present RP concepts using RP terms an argue about RP.

The fact that our terminology is dominant is simply a reflection of the fact that we are dominant... we own the majority of the mindshare, and all these other groups are just a response to us, using our terms, thinking our thoughts, and spreading our ideas.

To a certain extent that’s true if PPD, see above.

What I’m saying here is that’s not true of incels.

They’re taking our terms... scooping out the original content... placing their own fucked up idiocy in there... and using our”term” to refer to “their” concept.

That’s what is uniquely dangerous about incels to RP.

People no longer understand our concepts when we communicate them. Because we say the “term” (say “alpha”) thinking this creates our concept in their mind. It increasingly doesn’t. It increasingly creates the incel concept in their mind.

We’re saying the equivalent of “I’m Gay” thinking they understand that we’re happy people.... and they’re coming away with the impression that we’re homosexuals (to use a non RP example).

The incels by so doing are stealing your mindshare.

You think you’re spreading our mindshare... and increasingly we are unwittingly spreading their bollocks about the place.

Like lots of people talking about “how happy they are” using the term gay aren’t spreading mindshare concerning happiness, but convincing everyone that there are a lot more homosexuals than they thought there were.

They used to call us "misogynists" until it because clear that we gave zero fucks and that would stop us not at all.

Dude, they still say that. They didn’t stop. They didn’t give up.

You didn’t “win” by not caring. You just gave up the fight and let’s them convince everyone we were, which they did.

Frankly, I'm glad the incels are hosting our memetic vectors.

That’s not what they’re doing. No more than anyone describing themselves as “Gay” is unwittingly hosting the “happiness” vector.

If 100% of TRP is pussy slayers, then we would be a failure. Because we're not supposed to be a social group for dudes who are already pussy slayers. We're supposed to turn losers into pussy slayers. That means if there are no total losers here, right now, then we are failing our mission.

That’s leffectly fair enough. But the incels aren’t dojng why you think they are.

As they’re growing in “mindshare” what they are doing is getting us to spread their “vectors” for them.

Like gay people getting everyone to say how happy they are... laughing up their sleeve at what useful idiots we are for their vector.

No.

When TRP and TBP collaborated to create PPD, you put it there.

As I said, were a place TRP and TBP members created, a long time ago, to debate RP. They needed to do so to have a place that wasn’t their subs to do so. (As on their subs such debate is banned).

The current mod team are about the 3rd-4th generation on from this creation. We continue to exist solely to debate RP, not in any sense to create a “purple pill” alternative to TRP.

We aren’t “taking your lingo” the people who use RP terms there are RP. It’s no more “taking the lingo from RP” than askTRP is doing so. Or that TRP is doing so.

No, it's bad for the world and it's bad for RP.

When they take words and concepts that RP use to goad men into action and they turn those very same words and concepts into things to convince men to give up, turn off, lay down and die ... then it can no longer be used for it's original purpose.

Things we developed to be descriptive of reality, and the terms we gave those things.... are no longer descriptive of reality in the minds of people hearing them. They're now descriptive of a warped, nihlistic, and inaccurate reality.

To use a silly example... if "Gay" as a word was useful to the world in describing happy people. That usefulness was lost when it became repurposed to use to mean "Homosexual". It no longer created the concept in peoples minds it did before. If it was repurposed again to mean "Pillow" then homosexuals would lose the use of it to create a concept in peoples minds too.

Words like "Alpha" and "Beta" and "AF/BB" and "Hypergamy" were useful because the concepts they were associated with reflected reality.

Incels are changing those concepts and by doing so.... RP is losing the ability to describe reality using the terms it created to do so.

[-] [deleted] 1 Point 2 months ago

In their mind, he's just another incel. No need to read more. Why go to that TRP place ? Is that what they're calling their new refuge now r incels is shutdown ?

[-] RedForEducation 1 Point 2 months ago

Brass tacks. The only time people listen to incels is when they rent a van, and even then they don't really.

You be the example for others to follow, and if doll fuckers can usurp you, then maybe you weren't that good to begin with. Your little sub spends an inordinate amount of time around incels, is it any wonder you over blow their influence?

As for eyeballs, Reddit is a dead end. The quarantine, VC funding round and lack of monetization made that clear. It will be another plume or digg soon enough.

Besides, the femenists hate would make crap up if they didn't have people to misinterpret it for them, they already have.

[-] CainPrice 13 Points 2 months ago

Most men suck and are stupid. Incels included. I type stuff so that just one guy will start lifting weights and talking to women. If that one guy improves his life, just a little bit, I did good in the world.

If I wanted to wage war against stupid, I'd have to quit my day job and dump my girlfriend and never sleep again. And I'd still never make a dent.

[-] concacanca 5 Points 2 months ago

You are one of the more reasonable reds and you make a fair point about waging an unending war against stupid.

I guess the point is that by losing control of the narrative and your own message, I see the odds of you reaching that one guy to be diminished. I find it strange that early TRP advice is 'lift, STFU, sidebar' but no one seems to have told the blackpillers to stfu.

[-] CainPrice 6 Points 2 months ago

It's unreasonably optimistic to imagine that nobody is beyond hope or that everybody is receptive to improvement. But I can't individually judge every man and decide who's worth keeping around and who can't be reached.

So I just type stuff let them do what they want with it. That's how the internet works in most areas, so why not in the area of men learning about sex, relationships, and how shit works with women?

Along those lines, I try to be a good example to others. I try to carry myself, both on and off of the internet, with a certain positive-but-realistic attitude about masculinity, women, sex, and relationships.

There is plenty of Red Pill stuff that is true, unpleasant to hear, not accepted by the general public, impolite to say, and gets you branded as an evil woman hater. But just because that stuff is true doesn't mean women suck, life sucks, society sucks, relationships suck, or whatever. It's just something you have to work with and work around, like anything else in life. Your boss might suck, but you still go to work every day and find a way to make things work so you get your paycheck. Your house might have a lightswitch in a funny place, but you get used to it. Your dishwasher breaks, so you hand-wash dishes until you have it fixed. And the sex and relationships game might not work the way you'd always thought, but you learn to deal with it.

Hello, TRP ECs et al. Why do so many of you find it so difficult to abide by PPD rules that you get permabanned? Seriously, do you know how hard you have to work to get permabanned?

I suspect it's at least partly due to difficulty with cognitively switching from TRP, where you guys obviously spend most of your time, to PPD, which is a very different place, but I am open to hearing other possibilities.

[-] Whisper 7 Points 2 months ago

I suspect it's mostly about not caring. TRP teaches how not to give fucks, and how a flippant answer is often better for the speaker in the long run than the most well-reasoned argument.

PPD is really nothing but a flea in the tail of the TRP bear. Nothing serious is happening there, so there's very little reason not to screw around.

No, you’re an extremely sensible RP poster who comes and contributes within our rules in good faith.

In a reply elsewhere I was actually going to use you as my example of “an EC who consistently posts high quality content to our sub and keeps our rules”.

In your case I wish you’d drop by more often, because we desperately need people who can present/defend RP concepts well in a smart way that makes RP attractive to our lurkers.

It’s hard holding up the temple all on my own, or with only the assistance of a few dumbfucks who are more trouble than their worth.

OK, perhaps that’s unfair. Perhaps we have 3-4 RP posters who can present it well to some level. But we need... and TRP would benefit from.... more guys like you strutting RPs stuff in front of the 2k-3k non-aligned lurkers most of our threads attract. It’d help raise the quality of TRPs intake.

A lot of new people come to PPD just like, itching to fight. At least that is what it appears to be when they start going all overly aggro from the get-go and super defensive for little reason, if any.

But some of the terper ECs/older members seem like they are trying to keep up some manospherian caricature type persona. Like they rarely if ever break from it. It's weird.

I would not put what I am describing in the category of "harassing other subs" I do not at all think that occurs.

On PPD, there's a perception that TRP is a hugbox in many ways. And doing SJW-style preemptive bans def makes that belief seem more credible.

[-] redpillschool 7 Points 2 months ago

We don't have a policy of preemptive bans. I don't know why you were banned. Mod tools are terrible so there's no way to easily look back in time and find out.

[-] hyperrreal 6 Points 2 months ago

I had no idea I was banned until one day I noticed the submit sidebars were gone when I was reading a post here. I know a number of people on PPD have had that experience with this forum.

It's an interesting similarity TRP has with a lot of social justice/left leaning subs, where mods also ban people who participate on subs they don't like, or who says things in other forums they disagree with.

You invited people to come here and disagree as a way to boost traffic in response to your quarantine. That's a reasonable thing to do, but it's not out of some love of debate/discourse.

Agree and amplify schickt aside, TRP does have a lot in common with left-wing idpol. I think that's why both sides try so hard to perform wokeness/edginess (respectively). Helps mask how bound up both groups/ideologies are together.

Like I said, mod tools are not very good so I cannot confirm this is the case. We can take hyperreal's word for it that they didn't receive a notice, but I've had members who have participated and they also have missed or think they didn't get the message.

All I can say is, we don't have this policy, and I have unbanned them to rectify said issue. There isn't much more you can get out of it.

Where does RP put love in this equation?

I agree with RP up to awalt, once the woman is hooked on you. I've seen women who should branch swing because the guy is a total loser stick with said total loser because she "loves him".

[-] itiswr1tten 13 Points 2 months ago

Women can love but it's conditional. Even purples will admit this. There's a reason it's a meme of a woman disappearing as soon as you lose your job. There's a reason male cancer victims die alone in the hospital. We just don't love the same way. I'm not bitter and wouldn't consider one superior to the other, but as a man you must perform to be loved

[-] sublimemongrel 3 Points 2 months ago

The stats that I’ve seen show men leave sick wives more than vice versa although yes women leave unemployed husbands more but how does that factor into your statement?

[-] itiswr1tten 8 Points 2 months ago

Perhaps my observed anecdotes conflict with reality in one of those scenarios. I'll look it up for myself and I'm always happy to be wrong. The only thing I take issue with is people pretending that most human beings love isn't conditional, and that a woman always loves purely. I do genuinely believe men's love is on the whole significantly less conditional once achieved

[-] max_peenor 12 Points 2 months ago

Men - love -> Women - love -> Children - love -> Puppies -> love -> Men

No one is loved the way they want to be love and nobody loves the way they are loved. Well, except maybe the puppy.
When you come to terms with this, life can become a lot less distressing. The funny thing is that most mature mothers understand this when dealing with their own children. These are the same mothers that flip their shit in bloopland when we suggest it's the same between men and women.

Where does RP put love in this equation?

Pretty close to here I would imagine.

A man can love a woman sexually and regard her as a subordinate, but for a woman to regard a man as a subordinate would make him sexually repulsive to her. Male love to a woman is protective. Female love to a man is respectful.

I've seen women who should branch swing

I believe that the current best model is actually this, which was posted here recently but didn't get the attention it deserves. It's much more explanatory than hypergamy --> branch swinging, IMO.

[-] VisiblePlan 3 Points 2 months ago

That loser has better frame. I've seen guys with gas station jobs date successful girls and hold on to them.

[-] Your_Coke_Dealer 2 Points 2 months ago

Love is a temporary emotional state to women. When she says she loves some “total loser”, she is highly attracted to him at the given moment. Female attraction is emotional and subject to change; a general rule about women’s attraction to “higher status males” is valid both on its generality and the fact that higher status is so subjective.

Also, “should branch swing” is a massively off-the-mark statement on the idea behind the phrase “branch swinging”, as well as moralizing, which TRP tries hard not to do:

  • “Branch swinging” means when a person lines up their next relationship to jump to, before they exit their current one. There is no reason anyone “should” branch swing; it is merely a preference of those who don’t want to be without some sort of relationship for any gap of time. What you mean to say is that those women “should” leave, which is still subjective and gets us to...

  • The moralizing is in saying some guy is a “total loser”. Even where you can objectively say that a guy hasn’t much going for him, he evidently has something about him attractive to women. It could be looks, game, money, dark triad psychological traits (“bad boy” attitude), or other things that she consciously or unconsciously wants. Who are you or anyone else to say what matters to her that she calls “love”?

[-] RedPillLawyerGuy 6 Points 2 months ago

I always take this phrase to mean "redpill within the context of a committed relationship." Just because someone gets into a relationship doesn't mean their fundamental biology changes. Women like to know that they have a high-value man, and men like to know that their woman is loyal to them.

&#x200B;

My belief is that most RP'ers who don't support marriage are actually against the consequences (and likelihood) of a marriage failing, and the total working-over men get in our family court system. Some are afraid of their emotional turmoil in the event of a failed relationship (AWALT means that women are predisposed to always search for a higher-value man, implying that loyalty is difficult, if not impossible). We brush this off by saying "She's not yours, it's just your turn." Even if that turn lasts 30 or 40 years. It's an attitude of acceptance that to be in a LTR is a state of constant vigilance.

For some of us (myself included) we had some natural gifts that made us successful with women, but still fell for the (now obvious) traps that sunk the ship.

[-] CainPrice 7 Points 2 months ago

Many of them. Though they all tended to follow the same arc.

Low sex, lack of gratitude, and after things got comfortable and stale, she eventually had an opportunity with someone else, and the new opportunity seemed better to her than the stale relationship with me. I'd always get dumped or cheated on, never fucked the way I wanted, and never treated well. At first, things were always great. She worshiped me. But the very second the honeymoon phase ended and things were comfortable, every girl turned bitchy, became ungrateful, and the second another guy came along who liked her, the relationship ended.

The Red Pill has significantly improved the length and quality of my relationships.

[-] PimPedOutGeese 6 Points 2 months ago

This. always this. Pre RP anyways...

Ill never forget my first. We were pretty damn inseparable. We had wild sex just about anywhere and everywhere and almost in front of anyone (including both are moms... Long story that one). After about 7 months ago she ran with some dude up North. I was pretty much devastated... And I couldn't understand why.

Looking back I know EXACTLY what happened. She branch swung as I was inferior at the time. No challenge. AS SHE SHOULD! AWALT. I can't blame her for doing her anymore than most guys for looking at women. It's in their nature. Yours will too if you don't keep frame.

Since RP I concur! My relationships have improved.

[-] subnauticalife 3 Points 2 months ago

I was in a very happy relationship for 3 years, and began reading trp about halfway through it. I’ve never felt more on top of the world than I did in that time. Trp in my opinion is a very complex way of telling most guys to “get a thicker skin.” Lots If people are sold on the idea of a happy ever after, and trp shoots down a lot of that and basically says, here’s what you’re really going to deal with throughout your love career. Once you get past that anger phase, you can embrace the way culture is headed and understand it.

"Pre TRP" is a bit of a tricky preposition for me, because things I learned on my own before TRP existed became a lot of what TRP is. So in my case, it's hard for me to say what is "pre" TRP, and what is post.

That said, a lot of TRP study material is sourced off my relationship with "FunSize", which has been going for quite a number of years now.

[-] willbrown72 2 Points 2 months ago

I was in a 3 year long relationship where I broke up due to distance and was sad about by it for about 3-6 months. It was a happy relationship all the way until the end for both sides. I think TRP gives men that aren’t taught the pitfalls and wrong things in a relationship a fighting chance and an ability to lead their life. And a big part of TRP is for self improvement in and out of being in a relationship. So even if it was successful before, it could be even better.

TRP has helped me understand what caused those relationships to fail in the way they did. TRP has helped me identify my own shortcomings and poor behavior patterns in relationships. TRP has helped me understand what a healthy relationship is.

And TRP has also made it more difficult to find a satisfying relationship because I won't put up with toxic behavior anymore.

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with TRP's most uncontroversial advice: lift and get big.

That's not to say you shouldn't lift, but the emphasis definitely shouldn't be on size. I've seen many a girl fawn over the physique of a ripped and skinny guy, while completely ignoring the jacked guys with a little too much extra bodyfat. Having been in the latter category, I can say my results with women have improved a lot more after losing that chub than after packing on the muscle.

For those of you who would say lift for yourself, I agree, which is why I have been lifting for many years. But unless your goal is to compete in bodybuilding or powerlifting, I'd argue you're a lot better off aiming for athleticism and health than raw numbers. I'm due for a hernia operation not too long from now, which research shows is correlated with heavy lifting.

&#x200B;

[-] Crimson_Medicinal 25 Points 2 months ago

You're not disagreeing with anything, that's exactly what we say. Telling someone to "lift" doesn't mean you should get on PEDs and devote your life to lifting. It means look better. Become top 10%. That's it. We're not out here giving ourselves hernias.

It's a great intitial indicator of strong masculinity to both women and other men. This can either be squandered or converted.

Question: How do you close?

I notice that I seem to be doing everything 'right' except closing, I can chat people up, leave a positive impression, joke around, etc but have no clue how to 'go for the kill', how to say 'Hey, lets have sex, back at your place' without risking a 'sexual harassment/rape' charge. [The deeper question is how can I get over my fear of being accused of sexual harassment, this is paralyzing me, from finally losing my virginity]

[-] CainPrice 12 Points 2 months ago

Touch the girl. Touch during your date. Kissing should be a mid-date activity, not a climactic close. Your date should include an intimate place you can sit, touch, and talk.

If you met the girl off of Tinder or through some other way where a hook-up was the understanding, like at a bar, after an hour or two of drinks, just ask if she wants to get out of there. That's expected. It would be weird -not- to ask unless you're not feeling it for her or it's obvious she's not feeling it for you.

If it's a real date, invite her back to your place for drinks, a movie, whatever. She knows what's up. It's expected that you'll ask. If she wants to wait, she'll tell you it's late and she's tired. She won't get all offended and accuse you of being a perverted rapist. If she comes back with you, she's down.

[-] max_peenor 5 Points 2 months ago

This is by far the hardest question for anyone here to answer, because a close is ultimately a confluence of situation, attractiveness and positioning. These are huge variables. However, let's see if I can give you a few tools for your box.

Female arousal is multi-factor. A woman can just simply touch your dick and it's off to the races. You need to feed the hamster more than that. She wants to feel your attraction to her. She wants to feel her apprehensiveness turn into desire. She wants to feel how the setting carries the mood--music/noise, surroundings, etc. You need to set this stage and put something into each of these pots--your desire, her submission (not the same as submissiveness) and environmental mood. Work all of these things and once.

As you work this, you will get feedback but most men don't recognize it. One thing to look for is they gently sway their body, almost as if offering it towards you, but pulling back to see if you engage them more. If you are into dancing (I'm not), this can be either more obvious or sending the wrong message, so be careful. Motion is always a sign, so learn to ready it. It's either telling you interest or a desire to retreat. Lack of motion is indifference and that's not a good sign; pull the sheets.

Once you are in her head, you will need to start working on her body. I've long held that the female neck and shoulders are the key to initiating their physical arousal. Start there; not on her tits. Take control of it without sperging out and straight up throttling her (though some will want to get there eventually).

The right music always helps. It depends on their tastes to some degree, but gear towards something that creates mood, rather than making the music itself a feature. When I was younger, I can't tell you how many women I closed while playing Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Lately it seems The Eden House does the trick. (Mind you, I'm older and women will hold different expectations of me.).

There is already tons of bloop-triggering content around LMR; review it all again.

Again, I've left a ton out here, but it's a taste of what has worked for me,.

[-] HumanSockPuppet 3 Points 2 months ago

Never state directly that you want to have sex. That will scare girls off.

Instead, you need to phrase your sex proposal as an indirect speech act.

Signal the safest relationship to the target (come over to my place and let's watch the jungle documentary on Netflix) while counting on your target to read between the lines and entertain the possibility of sex occurring in a private setting like your apartment.

[-] buartha 3 Points 2 months ago

Best question.

[-] redpillschool 3 Points 2 months ago

I haven't heard about this, what's the scoop?

[-] sublimemongrel 3 Points 2 months ago

Ok sorry for repeatedly replying to you but I got another submission removed message. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I assume you cannot see the other two replies I made because they were removed.

Essentially, u/redpillcoach made a post on MRP (which I tried to link here just now) about suing reddit for "discrimination" based on his Reddit advertisement being rejected. In his merp post he linked a copy of his complaint. Based on the public docket of the case, I think he filed it and then voluntarily dismissed it, I don't even think he served Reddit, and I wanted to confirm that was the case or find out what happened if not.

I tried to link you the MRP post and the michigan state court's online docket portal but apparently linking those is why my "submission" keeps getting removed. Sorry, if you tell me how to link those here appropriately, I will, or PM me and I can send them to you if you want to see the original post which prompted my question.

Edit: Here is the post (I think, I don't know how to archive so hopefully that works)

[-] RedPillCoach 7 Points 2 months ago

Yes, I filed a case alleging that Reddit committed political and gender discrimination in refusing to do business with me or accepting my advertising money.

Reddit house counsel contacted me and a discussion ensued. Essentially they argued Reddit had the right to do business with whoever they wanted and to not do business with whoever they wanted. Remember, my case was not about "public use" but about using the forum for advertising. So I had not been Quarantined or Banned and I was arguing that they literally would not take my money and the only possible explanation was gender and/or political discrimination.

Reddit house counsel then offered to run my advertisement so long as I used another user name to run it. He argued that permitting "Red Pill Coach" to advertise under that name was a tacit endorsement and his client was not required to do that.

I essentially agreed with him that companies also have the right of free association and agreed to run the add under another name. They agreed to credit my account for the amount I spent filing the lawsuit (effectively giving me my costs on the case).

Once they agreed to run my ad even though under another name, my discrimination argument went away along with the case.

[-] sublimemongrel 2 Points 2 months ago

So in the 2.5 months this case was filed you actually did serve Reddit, had this negotiation with in house counsel and they credited you $175.00 in your reddit advertising account? What name did you end up using can you share that? I feel like the advertisements I see run under the name of the product all the time.

How do you deal with your female superiors in professional setting? Doesn't submitting before a woman compromises your redpill Alphadom?

[-] nicethingyoucanthave 16 Points 2 months ago

This question doesn't even need to be about women as bosses. Consider this: the majority of women are attracted to men whose behavior could be summarized as "leadership." I mean, all those masculine qualities like strength, confidence, assertiveness, that's what all that is.

So if I'm trying to put the moves on a girl, that's the way I act.

But if I'm on a team at work, some of that shit just isn't appropriate. Sometimes, the project leader makes a decision and I need to go with it even if I disagree.

Now, if you have this shallow understanding of TRP where you think it's like a religion and you imagine that I can't ever turn off my assertiveness and take the role of a follower or else ...what, exactly? Or else I'm sinning against TRP and I don't go to TRP heaven??

Come on. I behave in ways that are appropriate to the situation. This isn't that difficult.

[-] MentORPHEUS 10 Points 2 months ago

Doesn't submitting before a woman compromises your redpill Alphadom?

No more so than submitting before a traffic cop who has pulled you over does. Life is full of compromises and times when it's strategic to compartmentalize.

Perhaps you're seeing dominant and submissive as the only modes of interaction. Consider the dimension of assertiveness.

[-] PosnerRocks 3 Points 2 months ago

No issue with female superiors. There is just a different set of rules for how to deal with them than you would a male superior. Men and women communicate different and have different priorities. Understanding that and operating within those guidelines is key.

Otherwise, I have a job to do. Why would I waste time bitching about the gender of my boss?

[-] WarViper1337 3 Points 2 months ago

I work for a large corporation so I have female bosses. It doesn't change my behavior as far as my job goes. I will always perform it to the best of my ability. Obviously I am careful with my interactions so I don't put myself into a position where I would become a #metoo statistic.

[-] RedPillLawyerGuy 2 Points 2 months ago

Redpill is, at its heart, a sexual strategy -- an acceptance that in the world of romance and sex, women and men have biological tendencies that have to be acknowledged. In a professional setting, where everyone is acting professionally, this may not even apply. I've had women bosses, and women employees, and as long as everyone does their jobs and is civil to each other, everything is fine.

[-] nodepostgres 2 Points 2 months ago

I'm curious why you would think this doesn't align with TRP. The general rule is "don't shit where you eat", hence TRP as a sexual strategy is not relevant in the work place.

You kinda answer your own question there, yes if you can get a rich girl who has higher social status to marry you then go for it, but its abit of a fallacy. Why would a woman with higher social status who's rich want to marry you? Sleep with you sure, but why would she commit? TRP teaches about the hypergamy nature of woman, or to put it shortly, the reason why woman marry up and never down.

[-] empatheticapathetic 4 Points 2 months ago

[-] rus9384 6 Points 2 months ago

What original is there in TRP?

Maybe that's simpy local beliefs, but in my area around half of guys have similar views on how to deal with women, evem though they never heard about TRP. Damn, that attitude is even older than TRP itself, it comes at least as early as from the last decade.

Most advices, theory and so on is familiar to me. I heard it back from late 00's/early 10's. This also puts in doubt my view on TRP as something unpopular in society. But maybe things are different in the US or some other countries?

[-] EkMard 6 Points 2 months ago

The place you come from is an outlier. I see people in the Americas, much of Europe, South Asia and elsewhere, and the majority of males do not understand it. The vast majority are blue-pilled. Red Pill truth and advice is considered misogynistic in most of the aforementioned places.

You are right. If there's anything, TRP is an attempt to explain the attitudes and views you describe. Some people do not default to your local beliefs and they can benefit from this.

[-] rus9384 1 Point 2 months ago

Ahem, I thought reddit has only slightly more than 20m of people. Actually I saw this sub only accidentally around a half year ago, and it's not easy to find it, if you don't look for it specifically. When you google "how to deal with women" and similar stuff, TRP is not going to be shown there. But google returns a bunch of other stuff, that on many points is similar to TRP guides.

Why quarantined? I don't know. I'm not sure it is due to a theory. I'm guessing someone had a hard time reading stories with guys being assholes to girls. Most of stories are not bad, sure. But if there was a popular (I think at least 100k subscribers) sub where girls posted something like "Look how I cuckolded this LOSER!" it could also be quarantined. Maybe.

[-] EqualitysA2WayStreet 2 Points 2 months ago

Was drawing on this for the numbers. And there are adultery or cheating subreddits (can't be bothered to visit them at work) that allows for that kinda stuff. It's only recently that we've come to share notes on an open, popular forum like this. And it irks them. And we aren't being assholes any more than a girl allows us to be. Having sex and not wanting a relationship is perfectly ethical. Just like being in a relationship and not wanting to have sex is.

[-] rus9384 1 Point 2 months ago

Just like there are 15 times more readers of reddit than actually registered users, I expect TRP having more than 300k unique visitors.

Not arguing with your last point. I myself like sex with no relationships. Yet, that's not the whole point of TRP community.

The thing is that some people are more predisposed to like sex with random/more people and some are less. You can google 'sociosexual orientation' for that. And many members of TRP community treat women like they all are on the extreme point of the scale. The community got overwhelmed by ignorant people taking anything for granted and that's the case.

[-] CainPrice 8 Points 2 months ago

TRP started out as a place where average, frustrated guys who were unsuccessful with sex, relationships, and women ended up.

These were typically guys who followed the normal, accepted, "successful life" path. Be nice and respectful to women, go to college, get a degree in a field where there's opportunity, get a job, a house, save money, keep being nice and respectful to women, and if you follow that path, eventually you'll meet the woman for you and get married and have kids and have a happy wife and family.

TRP started out with guys who were already "successful" at life, but couldn't get women because they were doing the relationship, sex, dating game all wrong.

[-] FereallyRed 5 Points 2 months ago

Rule Zero: Stay On Topic

TRP's mission is to discuss men's identity, sexual strategy, and options in the context of our current global culture for the benefit of men. Anyone who does not share that goal will be banned the instant we detect them. We are not interested in debating or defending our experiences to those who disagree with the red pill, nor do we want to clog up our threads defending the morality of our choices.

It's not only about sexual strategy. But to most here a huge life strategy/goal at this point in their life is to obtain vaginas. So that's what most of the posts are.

Strangely enough, the tools that attract women also make you more attractive at life.

[-] MisplacedSanityP 5 Points 2 months ago

You know maslow's hierarchy of needs? It's a well accepted theory in psychology that I whole-heartedly believe in. At the bottom of the pyramid is physiological needs. The obvious ones are food, water, sleep, and breathing. A less obvious one is sex. Sex is a basic requirement to have any sort of fulfillment or happiness(for most people). So what do you do when you're at 0? When you can't even fuck a fat chick? Should that guy focus on overall life strategy when he can't even fill a basic physiological need? Now will you die without sex? No. Will you be miserable? Yes. Every man should be aiming for minimum the ability to get laid. The funny thing is, everything that makes you high value in the sexual marketplace(and therefore making you more likely to get laid) also leads to overall improvement in life. Is TRP overly focus on getting laid? Yes. Is that a bad thing? Not at all.

[-] mortsdans 1 Point 2 months ago

I pretty much agree with 99 percent of that. Almost everything you do to get laid is gonna help you in other aspects of life. But if you're making 60k a year you might not want to buy a brand new corvette, even if it does help you get laid.

[-] MisplacedSanityP 2 Points 2 months ago

No one is claiming you should do something like that though. Everyone is claiming you should work hard to actually be a high value man, not try to fake it(unless you're just starting off then fake it till you make it).

Do you ever buy gifts for your partner

My advice, if this were a question in askTRP, would be that thoughtful gifts outside of V-day are worth substantially more than any gift given on the day. I would say go ahead and get flowers for you girl, go ahead and cook a nice romantic meal, but stay away from anything more cliche than that, because it's going to seem like you're just doing your duty.

By contrast, even really small gifts outside of Valentine's Day will have a much more significant impact. And I'm not necessarily talking about things you buy with money. I'm talking about things that would have a story behind them. The story you tell the girl about why you picked the thing up is more important than the thing itself, and significantly more than the price.

It has an objective viewpoint. No antisemitic charge whatsoever. Give it a quick skim and decide for yourself if it's worth a read.

[-] CainPrice 6 Points 2 months ago

My position has always been that a small handful of really rich people (some of them are Jewish) control a lot of shit with their money. And when you have a lot of money and control a lot of shit and want to make more money, you can use that control to affect the value of the US Dollar and various stocks. For example, Soros made it huge betting against the Dollar. He's not fighting to destroy white culture and glorify the Jews. He just likes money.

It's all a game. Trump, who is allegedly the Lord and Savior of white culture, gives lip service to his people while signing a tax bill that limits mortgage interest deduction on your taxes. The single largest deduction middle class Americans make every year. And his crazy behavior makes the US look bad internationally while also further polarizing the country internally and getting the far left to mobilize. If you were a conspiracy guy, you might think that Trump getting elected was all part of the master plan and he's one of them, too.

Likewise, antisemitism flourishes and the powers that be don't do anything about it, because it's convenient for the people who are actually in control if ignorant rednecks are blaming the Jews and plotting to shoot up random synagogues. That just further mobilizes the left and makes the whole nation easier to manipulate.

There are as many tin foil hats as you can imagine. Everything you see could be somebody's master plan.

It's off topic for the main sub. Some people are interested in the topic, others dismiss it.

Would love to know why or why not.

Thanks!

[-] max_peenor 8 Points 2 months ago

I'm not going to give it a line by line critique, but it definitely highlights a very common misunderstanding about 80/20. Bloops and confederates pretend that we are saying only 20% of men get sex. Some might realize this is idiotic and dial it back to only 20% of men get casual sex. No no no. We realize most men can get sex at some point. The question is how much and at what cost.

The 20% will get more mating access at less cost. In comparison to the 80%, their counts will be higher and sometimes much, much higher. The 80% will typically have to trade value for mating access--resources, commitment, etc. Sex with the 20% is value in itself. This is not to say a 20%er won't ever commit or give resources. It just isn't a requirement.

[-] PosnerRocks 9 Points 2 months ago

If you value your self-worth by the women you fuck, it is not healthy. Strength and self-confidence should come from your intrinsic value and not be dependent upon the women you are sleeping with.

If you value your self-worth by the women you fuck, it is not healthy.

I agree. Thinking that way is having an external locus of control - it's dangerous, because we're all going to fail or fuck up occasionally, and you can't let that bring you down. This is the mistake that famous people make. They're flying high thinking everyone loves them, but when they crash, they crash hard, because their entire self worth was in other people's opinions.

When you aren't successful, women become a leading indicator of success in your mind. All kinds of validation tied up in the hunt, the sex, the neediness.

When you realize that with success comes women, they become a lagging indicator of success and therefore you don't derive as much validation...it becomes more of a "check yourself" metric.

But we're social animals, and sex feels good, man.

What's the lowest value man TRP can help? I'm pretty similar to an average beta but I'm also Indian in America so shits rough.

I'm going on a cruise in August and my main goal is to get laid while I'm on it, is this achievable? Can someone learn enough game in 6 months to do this? I have plenty of time and money, I just need direction.

Where do I start?

[-] PosnerRocks 9 Points 2 months ago

Read the sidebar. Start with the gym. Six months is plenty of time to get into shape assuming you aren't obese.

Indians in America have a reputation for being creepy, clingy, and not picking up on "back-off" signals. You're going to need to focus on making sure you cultivate a relaxed take it or leave it attitude when it comes to women. If you have an accent or poor vocab, work on it. I don't know many American women that are into it so it is an uphill battle. Probably the best start is with Indian women who will already be receptive.

Finally, in my experience, cruise ships are awful places to pick up women. If they are there, they are with someone, and, if they aren't, they are probably with their parents.

Good luck and don't get discouraged.

[-] DespisedByWomen 3 Points 2 months ago

Yeah I've already been lifting for a while and I don't have an accent since I was born here.

[-] PosnerRocks 3 Points 2 months ago

Perfect. 6 months is plenty of time to learn some game. Best start is just chatting up women without any attachment to their reaction to you and building confidence. It can be a numbers game and learning to read the signals that someone is into you before escalating. Examples: Laughing at your bad jokes or touching your arm is a good sign. When someone says something funny, if they look to see how you react first, they are into you.

Go on a couple dates, attempt to apply what you learn here, then come back and post an update. People here are usually pretty receptive to letting you know where you fucked up and how to improve.

[-] MentORPHEUS 3 Points 2 months ago

Finally, in my experience, cruise ships are awful places to pick up women.

No, there are singles oriented segments of the Cruise business. A regular cruise is a good way to get things like Norovirus; a deliberately promiscuous cruise ship adds STDs to that concern. Not my taste, and not a guarantee that a given guy (with no game or experience) will be able to get laid on board.

Red pill advice can work for literally any man. Even if you go from sex once a year to sex once a month, that’s should still be considered an improvement.

That said, I’m at 250+ different women, and I’ve been on 6 cruises, not gotten laid once, it’s a terrible environment for pickup.

[-] [deleted] 2 Points 2 months ago

[deleted]

[-] antariusz 2 Points 2 months ago

Well in a way you’re right, all my lays have been in just the past decade. I never even went on a date until I was 25.

The internet really did make things a lot easier.

To be completely transparent, only on 2 of those cruises did I go solo, not that it would stop me completely being on a cruise with a GF, but obviously I was only “actively” gaming on 2 separate occasions. I do routinely get a lot more female attention when I’m with another woman though. Preselection is a real thing.

Things I learned. Play to your strengths, I’m not tall, or a good dancer, or even that athletic or good looking, clubs are not the best for me. You gotta find what works for you. For me, it’s the fact that I make 170k a year and live in Ohio. I talk to trailer park girls, waitresses, and gas station clerks that imagine themselves living a better life. I don’t put them on a pedestal because I know that they aren’t special and there are dozens of girls that I could sleep with this year alone that also want a piece of me. They all see themselves driving a Porsche to soccer practice (eventually), but none of them will ever actually see that. People on this subreddit love to shit all over letting your money work for you, but Christian Grey wasn’t a coal miner. So I fill in the role of the daddy they never had growing up.

But you gotta use what works for you.

[-] nicethingyoucanthave 5 Points 2 months ago

Everyone can be helped, in the sense that everyone can increase their odds of success. However, nobody can ever get their odd up to 100% - not even the most top-tier alpha rock star has a 100% success rate.

A guy who starts out with a very low chance of success can be helped too. Maybe he starts out in a situation where he'd have to approach 500 women before he'd find one who liked him. Chances are, that guy is going to quit long before 500 though, because if you have no fucking clue what's going on - why you're failing, it'd be very hard to continue, right?

If that guy is really disciplined and works really hard, then maybe he gets his odds up from 1:500 to 1:400. That'd be help for that guy.

my main goal is to get laid while I'm on it

I hope you get it done. Do you have a wing man that you can work with during these six months? A lot of times, we can't see the shit we're doing wrong, but it's very clear to someone watching us.

The thing about Zen Koans is that they sound cryptic, trite, or inane, without the proper wisdom. But once you have the understanding, the encapsulating statement makes all the sense.

He's right – be one with rejection and you'll do well. It's obvious that you have an issue with rejection. Just look at your handle. If you didn't feel you were despised by women, if you didn't project that onto every woman you see as you walk down the street – what could you accomplish? How could you ever cold open if your brain presumes rejection?

If you had an eight-inch cock, you could approach every woman with the little smile of "I know something you don't know." But since you likely don't have that, how do you achieve that frame of mind?

Until then, you must be one with rejection.

There are tips and tricks we can give you, and they're all in the sidebar. But your issue seems to be a mirror-issue. You can't see yourself for your benefits, and you don't know how to project them onto women. You're projecting your perceived faults, and premeditating your own rejection.

There is a lot you can do in 6 months. First, read the sidebar. Second, the best thing you can do is to get in some sort of shape. If you've never lifted before, 6 months will give you decent beginner gains if you work hard.

I will also give this advice: don't worry about trying to lay model-tier girls. Of course, you should aim high once in awhile, but there is no shame in going after a 6-7 that you find attractive rather than a 9, especially if you are new to this. If you're feeling good, go after those 9s, otherwise practice on the 7s on the cruise.

[-] DespisedByWomen 3 Points 2 months ago

I've already been lifting for a few months, just gotta read the sidebar.

I dont need 9's, I just want girls that are not obese.

[-] Heinous_White_Man 3 Points 2 months ago

Then keep going on the lifting, obviously. Like I said, read the sidebar, and I would also begin practicing talking to women before the cruise. Don't go in with the intention of sex, making out, or even a number. Set a simple goal and just do it; "I will keep this conversation going for five minutes" for example.

Doesn't matter how big your muscles are if you have shit game. Talk to one woman a day, doesn't matter where, simply to practice before the cruise.

[-] Mojiitoo 1 Point 2 months ago

Just start. Basic sidebar. You will not get laid on that cruiseship with this current mentality. Read the sidebar and top all time posts well and you'll realise that your mentality should be more like I dont care what happends on that cruise, Ima have fun. Abundance mentality. Plenty of fish in the sea (literally lol) You definitely dont need a cruise to get laid.

If youre a virgin, consider going to a prostitute? Being a virgin can be a huge blockade but after that the mental barrier is way lower to have sex. Just taking the edge off.

And it has nothing to do with sex. As a parent, I'm responsible for what my children do until they reach the age of majority. If you think they should be having sex at a younger age, then we need to start treating them like adults at a younger age--like we used to do. Instead, it seems we keep ramping up age limits for everything else, some of which has no lasting effects, while pushing to lower the age of consent. If we keep pushing more and more responsibility on parents for the acts of children, the children will never grow up.

Self defense and defense of others. The same defenses that apply in a legal setting.

If a woman is coming at you with a knife? Kick her ass until she's not a threat any more.

If a woman is beating the shit out of your child? Kick her ass until she's a puddle and plead temporary insanity.

Talk to women. All the time. Even if you're not hot and not social and not interesting today, right now, talk to women anyway. No "monk mode" bullshit. Just talk to women.

Nobody talks to anybody any more. Everybody fucks around with their cell phones and made all the friends they think they're ever going to need in high school.

If you walk up and talk to a woman, even if she doesn't like you, thinks you suck, and blows you off, you walking up and talking to her might be the most interesting thing that happened to her today. You probably did her a favor. Everyone else was fucking with his cell phone. Everyone else is too chicken-shit to just talk to people.

Talking to people is good practice for you. And if you get rejected, it's good practice withstanding rejection. If you can't take rejection without it affecting your emotional state, that's something to work on.

I could probably ramble on about this to no good end, so I'll just nip off one that could be actionable. If you get that uncomfortable feeling when resisting someone that is taking advantage of your beta ways, that is a good sign and it is telling you to hold the line. A lot of beta behaviors are an aversion to what happen when we stick up for ourselves. Embrace that discomfort as a sign that you need to examine the situation with a critical eye and that if you believe you are right, suck it up and do what you believe is right. Sometimes you will decide otherwise and that's ok. The point is that the "bad feeling" should be a signal for introspection, not a flag to immediately retreat.

My top advice (and you can find my own posts about it in my history) is

you don't do things FOR women, you do things TO women and you will find that women, especially really hot women, do not want you to do things for them because they already have enough chauffeurs/ATMs and they want a real man to treat them like a real woman (IE throw them around like a ragdoll and then ignore them, I'm not joking).

and

don't be afraid to have a women be mad at you because she subconsciously knows that her whims and preferences are petty and stupid compared to the interests of a real man. She would much rather you do things your way because you know the better way to do things (don't you?) so that she can join along and pretend that she agreed right from the beginning.

But if you're just some dude from Tinder or a bar, and a girl isn't going to face any social fallout from fucking you because you're not in her life and don't know her co-workers or friend circle, you're fine. She'll enjoy the sex and see you again if it was good, or not see you again if it sucked.

Normal guys who have consensual hook-ups with women have very little to worry about regarding rape accusations. If you're some random dude who isn't a celebrity, politician, co-worker, or part of a girl's social circle, and she had a discrete hook-up with you and nobody in her work or social circles knows that she's a casual sex girl, you're fine. If anything, accusing you of rape would put her casual sex habit into a more public light.

Seconding this it's false rape Hysteria

[-] grewapair 7 Points 2 months ago

Metoo is easy. If the cops show up, say NOTHING. NOTHING.

Here's what cops have to prove: 1) that you had sex and 2) the girl at some point (like later, after she changed her mind) believed there was no consent. #2 is easy as pie to prove because every jury will just believe the woman, but without #1, they aren't taking it to trial and they have no proof because no one does a rape kit when there was consent.

So here's what most dumbass guys say when questioned by the cops. I had sex with her but there was consent. Dumbass, you just gave them #1 when they had no proof. Had you not opened your mouth, there'd be no trial, no nothing. But you had to give them #1. And #2 is in the bag.

So shut the fuck up. Don't say one word. Just say I don't want to talk with you, I want to talk to my lawyer to protect my constitutional rights. Then shut the fuck up. Your chance of there even being a trial is zero. DO NOT admit to even knowing the girl. Once they realize they have to prove everything, they'll move on to an easier case, because without proof of sex, their case is sunk from the start and they will not bother.

[-] mineralranch 1 Point 2 months ago

I support this advice. I'd just like to add that most of the damage done from a false accusation isn't legal, but social. Being labeled a rapist totally destroys your reputation. This happened to me a few months ago and I lost 90% of my social circle, many of whom were childhood friends. Also, people are fucking stupid and vindictive. They want to earn points with the in-crowd by destroying another person's life without a shred of evidence. Because people are stupid and vindictive, I don't how this will affect me moving forward. I'm more concerned about building a life I could be proud of just to have it fall apart again than I am going to jail. There is a .0001% chance of that happening (jail).

&#x200B;

And because I agree with your advice, I handled the situation by saying nothing even though I wanted to do the complete opposite. I contacted a lawyer who told me to shut the fuck up and move on with my life.

[-] redhawkes 6 Points 2 months ago

Fear is the mindset killer. That's the goal of this metoo and similar bullshit, to keep you in check.

Those things are specifically targeted selected persons, you or your friend aren't that important. This shit is magnified thru the social media and mass media, that gets repeated over and over again, doesn't really happen in real life. Avoid crazy BPD bitches tho.

The result, generation of wimps scared to talk to women. Weeding out the weak.

should men generally avoid girls who are taller than them?

Always let a woman figure out why she wont fuck you, never do it for her.

[-] redbossman123 1 Point 2 months ago

I've read most of the sidebar before, it's just that I kinda refuse to look at the sub besides this thread since the sexual advice is useless until I start lifting. Other than the obvious shit (too many tattoos in too many blatantly visible places, etc) how does one identify BPD chicks?

[-] redhawkes 2 Points 2 months ago

Mood swings, love bombing then withholding and acting cold, gaslighting, self harming etc.

You need to spend some time with them cos those symptoms won't reveal right away.

You should search the sub, there were couple of posts from guys who were trapped into BPD trap.

[-] FieldLine 5 Points 2 months ago

What do you say to someone who's main fear of actually trying to get laid is becoming a victim of #metoo?

This is a valid question that comes up quite often.

The answer is to realize that despite the amount of casual sex they are having, most girls aren't falsely accusing guys of sexual assault. It's not nearly as common as the internet would have you think. Women aren't interested in reporting you to the police, they're interested in "good vibes". Girls just want to have fun.

And, for what it's worth, the uncommon girl who is capable of falsely accusing you of rape is more likely to do so if you make her feel uncomfortable by being disingenuous with your actions rather then escalating as she is pretty much expecting, even if she ultimately rejects you when you make your move.

Stop reading all that MGTOW shit about rape accusations, they blow everything out of proportion. In fact, stop reading MGTOW at all. You have better things to do with your time.

Another question is generally, should men generally avoid girls who are taller than them?

No. Just make sure you are strong enough to pick them up/move them around.

[-] redbossman123 2 Points 2 months ago

I used to read MGTOW before I realized a lot of it was defeatism rather than actually trying to be a political movement to repeal the gynocentric laws on the books. I think that what you're saying is rather good for my state of mind, it's just that right now, I'm mainly stuck saving fucking Reddit comments because before anything, I need to start lifting, and I have absolutely shit amount of self-motivation to start other than to not get diabetes and to get laid. That plus I've always been better following a written diet plan along with lifting before I got to where I am now.

I think why people blow rape allegations out of the window is the fact that if the literal personification of Chad that is Christiano Ronaldo can get falsely accused of rape, what stops Joe Schmoe from getting accused?

[-] FieldLine 2 Points 2 months ago

I have absolutely shit amount of self-motivation to start other than to not get diabetes and to get laid.

That's as good a motivation as any. No one likes lifting when they start, and everyone has some stupid reason they stick with it. Usually it's women.

But after just a couple of weeks you'll see a change in the mirror and that itself will motivate you to keep going. For me it was seeing my traps grow after I learned to deadlift. It took just two weeks.

if the literal personification of Chad that is Christiano Ronaldo can get falsely accused of rape, what stops Joe Schmoe from getting accused?

Nothing. It's a big problem that it is allowed to happen at all.

But you asked how you can practically get over that fear when escalating. You just have to ignore it. Ultimately there is nothing you can do to defend yourself against a mattress carrier, but it's kind of like there's nothing you can do if a plane's wings come off mid-flight yet you still have no problem flying Delta to the Bahamas every year.

But I disagree that this is the reason people blow rape allegations out of the window. More likely it's because reading rage bait is as addictive as watching porn. Looking at memes day after day about how shitty women are is the same as reading /r/TalesFromRetail and /r/ChoosingBeggars. That any of it is true doesn't make it productive to harp on.

[-] redbossman123 1 Point 2 months ago

I get the #metoo stuff now, but one thing I wanna ask is how did you go about a diet plan? I'm the type of person who is going to eat unhealthily unless they have a written list of what they should eat to achieve X goal, did you like write out your meals or something like that? I feel like eating the junk I do at university is a part of why I might not have much motivation, since apparently food can effect emotions and that kinda stuff.

[-] FieldLine 2 Points 2 months ago

I love to cook, so I'm probably not the best person to ask.

The important thing when you start is to make sure you are eating enough... plan your meals around some kind of protein, supplement carbs when you need energy, and work in some veggies here and there.

Eventually you will learn what your body needs.

I feel like eating the junk I do at university is a part of why I might not have much motivation

Could be. Try working out while eating more university food. Not the healthiest option for the long term, but you might be surprised by how your outlook changes. Short of eating lots of sugar, and provided I am eating enough, I find hydration is more important for my mental state than the particular protein I eat.

Stop analyzing and just start, dude. You'll figure it out as you go.

[-] redbossman123 1 Point 2 months ago

Thanks.

[-] Proto_Sigma 1 Point 2 months ago

Also consider finding healthier food at the university. Most places have a salad bar- hard boiled eggs are a great source of protein and dietary fat (and currently compose a good 20% of my diet).

Most of what is served in dining halls is shitty, but be conscious of the best possible choices and make a habit of selecting them. Fruits, veggies, chicken, eggs, etc.

Personal advice, stick with the diet no matter what temptations you see. When I first tried to go on a diet I would get broken by a perceived scarcity dilemma.' I can't quit dessert tonight, they have the good ice cream tonight, they hardly ever have that.' Habits form over time, if you turn something down once it makes it easier the next time, if you take it it gets harder. At this point I see the same ice cream that used to break me about once a week and laugh about it to myself.

[-] [deleted] 2 Points 2 months ago

That which is monitored gets managed.

Download MyFitnessPal and start off by simply tracking the food you eat for a few weeks. The barcode scanner is 90% effective so it’s braindead easy to do. Then say I’m gonna make one healthy meal a week and keep ramping up from there.

I prep my lunches and adjust my dinners to meet my calorie goals. I minimize processed foods as much as possible. It definitely helps mood yet I couldn’t pin that down to exercise or diet alone, it’s a synergy.

I loosely follow IF now. I was very religious about it when I was cutting hard. It helped me stay on the wagon with a feed window.

No one likes lifting when they start, and everyone has some stupid reason they stick with it. Usually it's women.

Speak for yourself. I loved lifting since day 1. A good way to get motivation is to go to a nursing home and observe quietly all the old people who struggle to stand up from a f'ing chair.

Had they lifted all their lives and ate well they wouldn't be in that position. Since I love autonomy and would rather get fed to piranha than be an elderly invalid I lift like there's no tomorrow.

Hey guys, i am 20 and literally rock bottom beta i can't go to clubs because age limit, i am skinny, so my question is With all this can i still game? I want to be confident with girls so i was thinking to start talking to them during daytime i can even do night time, i will be alone so i am my only moral supporter, and i have currently got a drop in my academic year.

[-] HumanSockPuppet 12 Points 2 months ago

Yes and no.

Any guy can run game. Any guy can be effective with game, regardless of his appearance. Physical attractiveness merely enhances the effect of good game applied correctly.

Your initial problem will be that you LACK PRACTICE. You haven't developed all of the non-verbal cues indicating confidence. Even if you nail down the correct things to say, your body language and behaviour will still be incongruent with your words, and girls will pick up on that.

You need to go out and practice. Fail a bunch of times, learn from your mistakes, and adjust. Get incrementally better each time. Game is an acquirable skill like anything else.

So can i even talk to them while on street like is it compulsory to hit the clubs?

[-] PosnerRocks 5 Points 2 months ago

IMO clubs are a terrible place to pick up women. It's loud and it is going to come down to physical attraction first. Just practice talking to women in a context not involving trying to sleep with them. You're in school. Just doing study groups or grabbing a coffee to go over notes, legitimately, will help your confidence.

Hit the gym. Get bigger. You'll have this nagging thing in your head about being skinny that will hold you back. It will dissapate when you bulk up. (EAT EAT EAT. hardest thing for me was forcing myself to eat enough).

Finally, wearing clothes that fit is big. You're skinny so baggy clothes are out. Get something that fits more snug. Hit up male fashion advice and go from there.

The same bro 20-year-old here skinny as a stick and cripled as well. I go to college by myself. If i can game by myself you can too the thing is don't expect to start out being good at talking to girls unless you're naturally redpilled. The trick is finding what girls are attracted to you through eye contact, waiting for a time they are isolated and then just spending time talking to them or near them. Do that long enough eventually the feels will devolp.

Master PUAs can pick up without speaking.

Should you try to seduce girls without speaking? Well, if you want, but you don't need to... You're free to use any tool in your toolbox. Words are one tool. Looks is another.

Most people are shitty writers. Some internet essay written by a real world person who's not trying to be professional about it or publish a book is likely to be very badly written.

Your average TRP guy is in his 20s, probably majoring in a STEM field instead of English literature, over-analyzes things, and doesn't communicate well.

That's an exceedingly rare space for men anymore, as most of the world has been feminized to the point that even saying a bad word is "toxic". You know, toxic may be the worst word out there.
