I deleted my Instagram @ 2.1k followers back in April my page was pictures of traveling, being around hot girls in music videos, & my business. (Only social media I use now is snapchat)

Hanging around with my BP friends I noticed they are always the first to watch their onesie stories. Which unconsciously not knowing that makes a girl lose interest in you because it’s showing you care to see what she’s doing. Instead of her hamster spinning why isn’t he opening my selfie i posted for him. Wondering if you’re busy talking to other girls etc. Women post stories seeking validation and attention. As a man the only power you have with women is your attention. Simply withdraw it and watch her hamster spin

Book 48 laws of power -

Law #16 Too much circulation makes the price go down: The more you are seen and heard from, the more common you appear. If you are already established in a group, temporary withdrawal from it will make you more talked about, even more admired. You must learn when to leave. Create value through scarcity

“Create value through scarcity”

Try avoiding posting on any social media like Snapchat/IG everyday unless you are really living that lifestyle of traveling, Hanging with other hot girls, promoting your business. Seriously don’t post for a 1-2 weeks and watch how quick they will be to open your next story.

TL:DR stay off social media and stop watching girls stories and if you’re on IG stop liking and commenting their posts. You’re giving up your power by giving them free validation which gives you nothing in return. Don’t watch a plate/potential LTR stories and watch her hamster spin. The next story you post she will be the first to watch.

[-] McVaghunter 589 Points 11 months ago

Seriously don’t post for a 1-2 weeks and watch how quick they will be to open your next story.

Nobody fucking cares about your existence. In two weeks they'll forget you even exist.

Everyone on TRP seems to be butthurt about social media and I believe that has to do with two reasons; They're not hot enough and they don't know how to spam/use social media efficiently. TRP is supposed to be a place to help above average guys bypass the 3 digits per year n-count, now it's a place for incels looking for a way to get laid for the first time. I really want to make a post explaining how to correctly spam but I feel like it's gonna be just a waste of time typing a post viewed by a bunch of underachieving fucks.

[-] Simidjay 157 Points 11 months ago

Yeah TRP is getting invaded by incels lately. it's getting embarassing

[-] Thisismybot8 109 Points 11 months ago

This is what happens when you delete entire subreddits. The user base doesn't disappear, they just become active on different subreddits.

[-] WiseMonkeyGoodMonkey 24 Points 11 months ago

You say that like it wasn't the absolutely the desired effect. It's like new construction. All the gophers need to go somewhere and, as an inadvertent (to the gopher) result, destroy their yards instead.

[-] tr4xworthy 3 Points 11 months ago

I would go on more but reddit is easier to access (cause i use the app on my phone)

[-] Captain_Save_A_Hoe_ 10 Points 11 months ago

I dont understand how a generation without mentors looking for help makes the incels look bad. Its a cultural issue not theirs. Libtards individualize collective problems yet the system is older than the incels and let them fail. How does that work?

[-] NoobAbuse 19 Points 11 months ago

"Libtards collectivize individual's problems.." FTFY

But in all seriousness, the problem with incels typically isn't that they're seeking help but it's how they seek that help. The foundation of their approach to the redpill is usually rooted in the idea that "women are the problem"; an easy cop out that prevents them from critically examining their own shortcomings and lack of desirability.

In my encounters with incels, I often get a strong sense of entitlement from them.Though they will acknowledge some of their own characteristics as a cause for their loneliness (lack of good looks, social ineptitude, no money), they will also lay a significant portion of the blame at the feet of women. Instead of embracing hypergamy and taking full ownership for their ignorance and failure in adapting sooner, they antagonize hypergamy and make excuses. That sort of jaded outlook can be pretty toxic and makes for some low quality posts which often miss the mark on what the red pill is really about.

[-] good_guy_submitter 10 Points 11 months ago

Women are only the problem when it comes to politics. Then again it could be blamed on weak men who caved and gave them the vote for free, women didnt have to go fight and die in war to earn their right to vote. They still dont even have to be drafted. Our ancestors that gave women unearned equal authority over our nation were weak imbeciles. Although that said weaker men exist today, as a result...

[-] Captain_Save_A_Hoe_ 9 Points 11 months ago

"women are the problem"

The matriarchy does castrate betas and most men are that. Infact civilization is a gift from betas to betas and its the only way it can function, at their cost. Very few men are born to be Caesar or Alexsander, although it is possible to make change it takes someone out of the norm by multiple deviations to do so.

"often miss the mark on what the red pill is really about. (hypergamy)"

The purpose of countries is to restrict a total hypergamy war. Estonians cant compete for their existence and survive if you open the borders to hundreds of millions of russians. A globohomo agenda is mainstream and the red pill can never be mainstream.

Incels probably have a lower mark for what they call making it. Escaping wagecuckism, having a normal social life and enough room and materials to feel comfy is probably their main goal but because youre a degenerate materialist trying to pile more on top of more you cannot emphasize with them because the object of hedonists is to lay out a narrow road of discussion where you basically dab on people with less.

[-] Captain_Save_A_Hoe_ 0 Points 11 months ago

However I suggest everyone to read about Hegels concept of the self if they wanted to understand Incels in other ways than just boomer gossip.

[-] punkrockfishboy 1 Point 11 months ago

Don't worry. If the incels happen to get this sub banned, they won't be able to do the same shit on as they get instaban, IP ban, etc.

[-] _Tactleneck_ 10 Points 11 months ago

Yep. Lots of posts lately focused on being insecure about not being the center of some girls attention and fewer posts about how to focus on yourself.

[-] Jcorb 11 Points 11 months ago

Well, I say this as one of those guys who is insecure... that's kind of why this sub (and the Ask TRP sub) has been so helpful. I'm the first to get defensive about things, but when you see not just the practical knowledge, but also just the culture here, of guys genuinely wanting each other to succeed -- that's something that I've never experienced, and I think I'm slowly becoming a better man because of some of the folks here.

The biggest thing is, yeah, reaching that point you acknowledge "Okay, I'm not happy, and I'm the reason for that". It's a super difficult thing to acknowledge your own weaknesses and shortcomings, but it's the only path forward. I see that now, but this sub definitely had a huge role in that.

[-] _Tactleneck_ 3 Points 11 months ago

Good for you. I often reflect on “Which is better, to be born good or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?”

Sometimes your evil nature isn’t that you murder people, but that you naturally want to take the easy way out at every turn or that you procrastinate. Anything you naturally do that prevents you from getting the life you want.

Watch yourself, don’t judge yourself as good or bad because of it, then correct the things that hold you back. Good luck.

I wish you couldnt post here unless you are over 24 and have an n count over 10. I dont give a fuck about what a college kid witnessed at his first frat party, or what an incel experienced with his first approach.

[-] lilnutandbolt 90 Points 11 months ago

Go for it. I think many people would find value in it and maybe change their perception of social media

[-] alaskanarcher 51 Points 11 months ago

I have zero social media and haven't for nearly 3 years as I think it's cancer but I would definitely like to know how to use it effectively.

So here is one guy, who is not an incel, who would enjoy reading such a post.

[-] NomBok 27 Points 11 months ago

I know RSD isn't always super popular around here, but Owen made a video specifically talking about how Instagram basically created a paradigm shift in game, and if you're not using Instagram you're shooting yourself in the foot, even though everyone recognizes social media is cancerous. Because like it or not, girls are ALL on social media, and it's a huge part of their life, so you can either ignore it or take advantage. Definitely worth a watch at least:

[-] derex 12 Points 11 months ago

But chicks are on instagram to receive attention, not dick.

[-] NomBok 11 Points 11 months ago

You're right, but I encourage you to watch the video, it's not at all about "sliding into their DMs" or trying to 'game' them directly on instagram.

The super TL;DR is that most guys either don't use instagram at all, or suck REALLY bad at it. But if you just post normal cool stuff in your story and posts, girls will watch your story and see that you're not a creeper, but actually a normal cool guy. Which alone gives you a huge advantage. And if you do it well enough, they'll start to actually start hitting YOU up and initiating the conversation, at which point you're golden. He also goes into detail about practical steps to get their friends to follow you etc.

I think one important thing to remember (this is my theory) is guys follow girls on instagram because they want to fuck them (for the most part), where girls follow guys just for the hell of it basically. Girls aren't looking at stories for dick, they are literally just looking for entertainment. But if you show that you're having real fun they want to join in.

[-] alaskanarcher 6 Points 11 months ago

Thanks I'll check that out

[-] AvatarStinky 3 Points 11 months ago

That video was cringe-worthy, although I only watched about half of it. If you put at least half the amount of time that they suggest messing around on social media into actually doing the things you loved you'd be way better off.

[-] Luckyluke23 3 Points 11 months ago

I think that's the shift. he is just going where the girls are. they used to be in the club 5-8 years ago. now they are on Instagram.

[-] [deleted] 11 months ago
[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 10 months ago

and if you're not using Instagram you're shooting yourself in the foot

This is ridiculous. I simply do not believe that not having an Instagram affects how much pussy you get.

[-] HumanSockPuppet 30 Points 11 months ago

I really want to make a post explaining how to correctly spam but I feel like it's gonna be just a waste of time typing a post viewed by a bunch of underachieving fucks.

Speaking as a founder of this sub and a poster since the very beginning, let me tell you: your words will be lost on most of your readers. But for a select few, your advice could mean the world.

If that's okay with you, then do it.

[-] itiswr1tten 4 Points 11 months ago

This is the reason I challenge anyone who makes a half decent comment to transform it into a post. Nebder finally did it after pming me and it was pinned. Voila

[-] mattbrah 20 Points 11 months ago

[-] Tie5o11 14 Points 11 months ago

I don't understand why there is so much condensation when people have differences in opinion. I'm sure some guys use social media well and benefit from it, others don't use it and that's for the best. Personally, I don't use it, and I do fine with the ladies- although I'm a professional in my 30's, so I can appreciate it can be different for someone in my position vs a college kid or what not.

There's a growing number of 'all you other RPers are incels who cant get laid' posts, and they're often more annoying than the posts they respond to. Its okay to have a respectful difference of opinions, no need to be childish about it. We're all men here, lets act like it.

[-] InstigatingDrunk 10 Points 11 months ago

now it's a place for incels looking for a way to get laid for the first time.

Well that's a good first step. at least they're moving past the idea that they must remain celibate. sounds like you're gatekeeping. only above average guys amirite?

edit: however if you're an incel and you remain an incel and spread retarded shit then you don't belong here. I'm just getting caught up in the way you phrased it.

Oh noo, why isn't he an attention whore needing to post every detail of his life onto an online journal for all to see? What a creep

[-] Praeda18 0 Points 11 months ago

Heaven forbid somebody you’ve never met thinks you’re creepy because you don’t have social media. I’ve never understood the desire to take photos of yourself/food to send to people you know, or that need to be digitally & constantly “connected” to other people.

Really cheapens the social interaction when the value of interacting wth others lies in doing it face-to-face, regardless of the world you think we live in. It’s a shame that TRP has been diluted so much, but minimal cyber-interaction has always been the solid way of forming relationships, or building with rapport with women in your case. Don’t take what’s been written so literally & don’t place so much value on the opinions of people who don’t care about you.

[-] Truedemocracy4 6 Points 11 months ago

Lol TRP was never for average guys. Completely wrong there - it's always been for the unsuccessful

[-] menial_optimist 6 Points 11 months ago

You don't LTR/fuck women on social media, usually, so less time spent there and more time gaming in person is better.

[-] lespaul134 5 Points 11 months ago

Post it, oh high and mighty social media lord. Srs tho I needa grow insta

[-] ConservativelyRight 5 Points 11 months ago

Thing is, if you're above average in looks, you don't need SM to get laid. Hell, you don't need SM in any case. People don't seem to understand this. TRP is about freedom from validation, especially female validation. SM is female-controlled, people. Don't ever forget that. When you go on there, you are entering their realm, tail between your legs, playing by their rules. Just get the fuck off it. You don't need it. If you're an incel, like you said, you're fucked anyway. And if you're good-looking, like I said, you'll get fucked anyway. So forget about it. It's a massive time-drain and only serves as an addictive dopamine drip that keeps you coming back for female validation, even when you're in the privacy of your own fucking home. If that doesn't make your spine shiver, you're too far gone. But to those who understand what I'm saying, take the steps to save your fucking self.

[-] ArcangeloPT 4 Points 11 months ago

I’d say write this post. This is one of the few things that I’ve yet to make up my mind on and further clarification would be great.

[-] Kurush559 4 Points 11 months ago

Your post idea sounds good - go for it

[-] TheScarletScholar 3 Points 11 months ago

This is exactly what I've been thinking the past few months, if you're addicted to social media then sure yeah cut it from your life. If you're an otherwise regular functioning person it is a great tool for social value as well as giving a reminder to other girls who haven't seen you in awhile that you exist. Also any of your posts can certainly raise value and make for easy talking points if you see them out.

[-] Viralimpulse 2 Points 11 months ago

What do you consider underachieving?

[-] Auxfite 2 Points 11 months ago

Wrong. I already did this and it was insane how many girls opened my story within the first 10 minutes when they usually wouldn’t watch it till way later. Why I’m sharing this.

(btw @ OP, bought followers don't count and make you look like a tool)

[-] Atheist_Utopia 126 Points 11 months ago

You never explained why exactly you deleted your social media, as you can just ignore girls' posts and reap the rewards of social proof. Deleting 2100 people's worth of pre-selection just seems like a massive waste.

[-] _Tactleneck_ 31 Points 11 months ago

My thoughts too. I can see a peace of mind argument if SM is taking up tons of your time, but it seems backwards to believe that today you can basically disappear and expect people to come looking for you.

[-] anonswede 50 Points 11 months ago

Do what you want, I like to check stories once in a while - good way to start chatting up girls or keep in touch with a funny comment.

[-] meowgoesdog 6 Points 11 months ago

As long as its once in a while it is perfectly fine. Just don't ALWAYS be one of the first ones who checks the story.

[-] BryanJz 47 Points 11 months ago

This is only relevant when she is already interested in you.

In general what you're saying is true. I used to not watch stories for this purpose and watch them watch mine instantly every time

[-] CaptainBW 36 Points 11 months ago

Delete your social media. I killed all my accounts October of last year. Then got Tinder and made a new Snapchat this August, and though it’s gotten me pussy, in the past few days I’ve realized just how...deeply sad, attention seeking, Ego stroking, and time wasting garbage it is. But in a way, I sort of thank it for helping to dissolve the red pill in my stomach: it has helped a generation of women ruin their own familial futures. Enjoy the decline as they say...I’ve finally become very aware of it, and I personally don’t care enough about the pussy now to keep chasing it digitally.

[-] El_Shakiel 34 Points 11 months ago

Exuse my ignorance but, so if you post a "story" on Instagram, you actually get notified of Who viewed it ?

(i dont use social media so yes I am THAT ignorant =/>

[-] 300C 29 Points 11 months ago

Yes, it will show who viewed your story

[-] El_Shakiel 18 Points 11 months ago

Alright thanks. I find that actually quite intrusive but eh... Aint that the point of social media anyway

[-] dongpal 5 Points 11 months ago

there are stories on instagram? i thought it's only for pictures wtf

[-] 300C 8 Points 11 months ago

Nah, stories also show viewers. How else would these narcissists know just how many people were interested in what they were doing!?

[-] EL_Miore 10 Points 11 months ago

Same. I haven't been on social media since the beginning of the year and it was only FB. No IG and no Snapchat for 3 years so I have no idea what a story even is and honestly I don't give a fuck.

[-] GreetMufasa 11 Points 11 months ago

I really don't get this sub's hate of IG seriously, I hate insta hoes pictures popping when I click the search button so whenever I see them on my "Explore" page, I just select "SEE FEWER POSTS LIKE THIS". There is a button for that by the way. And also don't follow them, your IG is only for you, I use mine solely for photography (landscape and urban to be more specific).


This is something I really can't rap my head around as a TRP noob, why can't you'll just stop following them and use the button I mentioned above. I'm beginning to think maybe most people use IG with a subconscious objective of competing with six and eight pack dudes for female attention as a result of this when they don't get what they REALLY want they then bash it.

[-] VojvodaSrpski 8 Points 11 months ago

So what exactly is the point of IG for normal men in your opinion?

[-] askmrcia 4 Points 11 months ago

Look at memes or the news. Look at photography or artwork done by people.

Look out for events Going around your city.

There's lots that you can use it for. Just use it for your interest. My page is filled with sports, fitness art related content. No instagram attention whores on mine

[-] moltenw 1 Point 11 months ago

So essentially - it's to look at degenerate content (memes), mostly biased bluepilled information (news) and being a consumer of other people's work. Got it.

The other useful things you mention can be find in different places that aren't

Social media should only be used if It benefits you, and "interests" alone don't cut it. Your interests could be memes and games which obviously aren't helpful for you. As far as I can see, social media should basically be used for business only.

[-] Casanova-Quinn 1 Point 11 months ago

It can be used as a tool for inspiration, motivation, or education. Follow important people who bring value to your life.

[-] midgetpooooo 1 Point 11 months ago

It's a nice addition, but it's not the reason for the posting. I've seen two kinds of posters: one that posts things to their network. It's a post that is basically meaningless, a picture of a sunset, a selfie, etc. Nothing of note. Then the other is something interesting like traveling, an event, a life update, etc. The latter is not for anyone but the person posting it. They are sharing something that can be looked back on as a memory rather than a meaningless selfie.

[-] NohoTwoPointOh 9 Points 11 months ago

Value is earthly, existing only in imagination. Value is also cultural and subject to change and interpretation. Iphone X? Trash. Perhaps it is your treasure, as you may value earthly possessions more than than I.

I don't want Social Media, and yet here you are creating excuses to justify your bad habits.

[-] [deleted] 1 Point 11 months ago


[-] EL_Miore -1 Point 11 months ago

Your value is dependent upon you, and how others perceive you within our natural hierarchy of order. Even if you go and live in a hut in the woods others will just perceive you as an odd ball loner. While it may not matter to you, and your self value system, you are still being judged and factored into the larger picture by others.


There is no order without disorder, which is not chaos, as chaos is primordial and thus inconceivable. There are no hierarchies, only in the mammalian kingdom does such a thing exist. In the plant, and mineral kingdoms, there is no such hierarchy. Humans are only mammalian in their roots; in their hearts and minds they are beyond mammalian. It is this consciousness that drives the "odd ball loner" to enlightenment, and the average Joe to degeneration. One sees what they know, what they are aware of. The odd ball loner is more fit to tackle God's majesty as he has devoted his life to the hermetic disciplines.


I'm not justifying anything in particular. I am also not blaming social media, which is what others here are doing, blaming a tool. It is no different to blaming the gun, and the epitome of stupidity. The flaw is not in the tool, but the person using it.


Others may blame Social Media, but that is not what I'm doing. I have nothing to blame it on, as I desire not the so called virtues of which this anti-social platform has built upon its precipice. Social Medias are good marketing tools, I stated this previously, but as personal "enjoyments" it is merely an excuse and a justification to kill time, an obstruction of the brain's natural state and an indulgence of information influx. Getting rid of personal accounts is a step into the progressive nature of Human capability. Pushing further one's personal account for the sake of some pussy is the definition of putting the pussy on a pedestal. How much do you value pussy?


spend time sat in your car all day


Sitting down for extended periods is a cause of premature death.


Your notion that everyone on social media is an addict is not only immature, and naive, but also espouses the lack of self discipline you have which you are projecting onto others.




Everyone is playing the game whether they like it or not. The game is life. You only leave the table when you die, whether that's you choosing to leave on your own terms, or being taken out of it on the terms of others. Even then your reputation, and any legacy, lives on. People remember what type of player in the game of life you were.

A hierarchy and value system existed long before modern technology. All technology has done is allow people with the know how to market themselves through another medium, an online shop window, whether negatively or positively. Most people do it negatively.


Life as YOU know it is an electromagnetic spectrum, of which you can only perceive 1%; from Red to Violet. This is not life, but merely a fraction of it. A minute, inconsequential percentage. Only an empty bowl can be filled. One who seeks pleasures is a fool, as pleasures are perpetual and ever-haunting.


The Memory bank is the only proof of existence that we have. Legacy lives through memory, but legacy is insubstantial, only valuable by those selfish enough to harbor a lingering penchant, whether they be materialistic or idealistic.


Market themselves for what? If you do not own a business, or seek to promote art, you don't need to market anything. You just want pussy.

What if you fuck more girls than everyone but the majority of girls you fuck are very low SMV and lower than your SMV? Does that count? Or does every 9 or 10 Chad stares at want to hop on his cock? SMV with the genders isn’t that straight forward anyway, depends on a lot of factors. If your goal is to just get your n count up, who cares about SMV, she’s just one out of your many.

I agree overall. It would definitely be a more emotional buy than buying let’s say a car, but for a woman, the depreciation is about the same. Woman are by no means rational in their selection, and it can be that way for men sometimes also, and woman especially. I think it is more likely for a girl of Lower SMV to pull the man of higher SMV more regularly because there are so many thirsty and desperate dudes out there, and I wouldn’t say it’s impossible or doesn’t happen where a lower SMV guy can pull a higher SMV girl with money or higher status, or the high SMV girl is insecure enough in comparison to a low SMV guy trying to pull, this rarely happens but is possible. So it’s a completely emotional sell and mostly perception. That’s not even going into how girls try so hard with make up, clothes, hair and everything else to raise their own SMV, but guys are sold on the emotion of their dicks getting hard when they see a girl who’s really a 5 or 6 but with enough make up and the right hair and clothes can climb to an 8 or 9. So it’s not so straight forward.

I spend less than half an hour a day on Instagram

Half an hour too much.


It helps me check on what my friends are up to which can make for interesting conversation the next time you meet them.

You are too concerned with others. You are giving them your attention and intentions.


It helps in letting the sluts in letting them show interest with ease

I guess? Only you decide if pussy is worth the degradation of your humanity. Sooner, you will be no less than cattle.


You just have to know how to use it.

Or, you can give it up.


Lol okay I hope you use your phone by holding it up in the air above your head.

Yes, I do. It's such a great way of doing things, that it reminds me to constantly put the phone away.


It solidifies the contacts I make when I make friends

No man is your enemy, no man is your friend, every man is your teacher.

[-] xjx545 2 Points 11 months ago

That’s dumb. I use it to see pics of cars or cool travel destinations. Sometimes I’ve been inspired to go to those places myself. And as a bonus it’s a great way to message a girl you met in a bar and a good source of social proof that requires much less investment than a phone number.

[-] EL_Miore 1 Point 11 months ago

It doesn't matter why you use it. You can say "I masturbate because it's comfortable"; doesn't make it any less destructive.

[-] PerplexingPegasus_ 1 Point 11 months ago

Social media is definitely useful but some are more effective then others.

If you can’t curate a good enough following on Instagram don’t bother.

Twitter is practically is used for memes and propaganda by the mass, better to have it to look for like minded individuals that believe in building a better lifestyle.

Snapchat is great because it doesn’t show followers, you just have to know how to illustrate your life in an interesting way and builds a mysterious yet intriguing vibe. Most use snap that is actually playing against them by constantly posting things that show don’t have a interesting lifestyle.

[-] Mangasbzo7 14 Points 11 months ago

No, the moral of the story ere should be unless social media is directly helping you to get laid, do not use social media.

[-] mette13 14 Points 11 months ago

I think its safe to stay away from social media altogether, but my only exception is snapchat, and i silence those notifications then. If someone really needs me, they can call or come visit me.

[-] sealift 9 Points 11 months ago

If you have some interesting shit to post, go for it, then close the app. Hide it in a random folder on your phone. Turn off notifications. Don't validate yourself via "likes." (false dopamine)

Also unfollow useless company pages and meme pages. Seems like the only thing in the insta algorithm/feed these days is paid accounts. Junk.

[-] TokugawaSamurai 9 Points 11 months ago

I think it depends on the kind of guy you are. Being really active on social media doesn't necessarily suit me, as I'm also not the type of guy to be texting a lot or calling people and ask them how they're doing, etc... On the other hand, I'm also not really attracted to these hot beach girls who post on IG every two seconds (would fuck them without a doubt though)

Just be yourself, if you're the kind of guy who likes to share, feel free! Just remain not needy and confident.

[-] SteroidsFreak 2 Points 11 months ago

Well said. I use this account to troll, watch porn, yada yada yada. Could care less. One thing that I notice and is really pathetic are guys who put women on a pedestal. Its cringe. No doubt the lack of self confidence is pretty obvious. Going back to social media, yes when u post stuff every now and then, girls do view your shit. The more u put the less interested they are.

[-] SoA_MC 6 Points 11 months ago

This is only a problem if she’s on the fence about you. She’ll check to see if you viewed her story and like guys do she’ll post a few more to see if you consistently view them. If you do she’ll probably lose some interest because she was able to predict you.

But, if she’s into you already and you view it, she’s not just gonna think you’re a bitch just because you viewed it, the girl’s into you. As long as you don’t view it like 2 secs after it’s posted.

If she likes you and you never watch it she’ll think your interest is low anyway. This all assumes that you’ve presented yourself as a social media kinda person in the first place, because with that comes those expectations. If you’re casual about social media and she knows this, then there’s really not a big deal about watching a story.

[-] majorketone 5 Points 11 months ago

Y'all think people care way more about who views their story than they actually do. If I post any story 99% of the time I never go back to check who saw it because idgaf. I watch the stories on Insta whenever I'm on whether that be 1 minute after they posted or 15 hours. Im not gonna be an autist and start setting arbitrary timelines on when I can view someone's content

[-] Kevin19Fish 2 Points 11 months ago

[-] magx01 5 Points 11 months ago

I honestly don't even know what an Instagram "story" is. Is that what the pics with captions are called or is it something apart from the pics?

[-] hearse223 15 Points 11 months ago

Instagram stories are just IG stealing the idea of snapchat.

10-15 second clips of people admiring themselves on video, with silly filters.

Personally the only stories I used to watch are those of my favorite musicians because they tend to use stories to preview music.

Recently deleted IG, found myself getting into an argument in the comment section of a Snoop Dogg post and realized it wasn't worth my emotions or attention.

[-] chrisname 1 Point 11 months ago

If it’s like snapchat and Facebook stories, it’s a temporary picture of video that’s “your story” for a few hours. Idk what the point of it is.

This post made me delete my ig account, I was addicted to it. I had 3k followers and a great fake lifestyle. My reality is that I’m a married man and a 1 year old daughter with a very conventional job. Now I’m trying to fix my damn gaming addiction. Cheers

[-] virginlor 4 Points 11 months ago

To be honest, if you are even a little bit popular on social media there will be so many people viewing your story that it would take like 10 minutes to see them all, nobody with a life is checking all of that bro. It's really not that serious, it's actually kinda beta to care this much about something this small lmao

[-] ConservativelyRight 4 Points 11 months ago

I would edit this to just get the fuck off social media. It's literally a cancer on your mind and body, and needs to be cut out.

As for the whole scarcity thing, I like the concept, but

A. it's not practical if seeking an LTR

B. If you're posting on social media, you are not scarce.

C. Your whole reason for needing to be "scarce" is rooted in your need for attention and validation when you "return." This is a glaring weakness/insecurity that wafted off this post.

D. If you are on IG posting stories of yourself traveling with hot girls for validation from other females, you are BP. So I don't know how you could lecture anyone on how to stay out of it. You're still in it, and your hamster is still spinning. 2 weeks? Try 2 months. Too much? Try 2 years. Fuck it. Try forever. You might think you're escaping the women you so desperately want attention from, but you took the first hit, likely due to peer pressure. And now you're addicted. Get the fuck away from it. Then inhale, exhale, and enjoy real freedom from female validation.

I purposely don't watch their stories or like some of their photos. It really does something to them. Also have cut down on my Instagram time.

[-] bakamoney 3 Points 11 months ago

For WhatsApp it counts as a "seen" even if I just swipe through the stories cause I don't want that "new" notification sign ...

But I see what you mean. Will fix this shit.

[-] Kevin19Fish 3 Points 11 months ago

Eh, I think this is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

Nobody cares how often you post on social media or open a girls story. If you're attractive you can post BS every day and you'll get laid, if you're unattractive you can do all the OP has said and it won't make a difference. Not everything has to be this analyzed.

[-] midgetpooooo 3 Points 11 months ago

Girl's have hundreds to thousands of followers, they won't see that you viewed their story.

[-] MisterDeathclaw 2 Points 11 months ago

You know what's funny, just yesterday I stopped watching this girl's story on IG after reading this. Truth be told she was at a party and wondered what I was doing "why I didn't watch her story" and wanted me to come over.

Granted I'm banging her once every other week, but she's just playing the mind games trying to see if I respond jealously hah.

[-] Auxfite 2 Points 11 months ago

This is mostly Gen Z game. Regardless, it does kill them if you constantly did watch their stories or communicate with them daily but you stop instantly.

I agree using Law #16 is great. A key point to I'd like to make about it is to use that time achieving something spectacular. Everyone loves the returning explorer that conquered the world and has lots of interesting stories, no one gives a second to the guy who just sat around and wasted his time. I'd even argue if you waste it the next time they see you they'll be happy you're gone.
