Science finds that losers tend to be lefties (duh!)

Recently a reader remarked on this blog that social science research falls into two categories. It either confirms what is blatantly obvious, or it is obviously bullshit. Here is a recent research result in the former category: Is sociopolitical egalitarianism related to bodily and facial formidability in men? by a bunch of academics from Brunel,… Continue reading Science finds that losers tend to be lefties (duh!)

No, you don’t need to bother with women if you don’t want to

An interesting aspect of having an internet presence is that sometimes people approach me almost as if they are asking for approval to do something. A few times guys asked me about my opinion on dating much younger girls. Of course, as long as they are not breaking any laws, that’s totally fine, regardless of… Continue reading No, you don’t need to bother with women if you don’t want to

How to figure out whether you’re buff enough for successfully picking up girls

I used to stress the importance of style. It is of course not unimportant, but a much bigger determinant of your success with women is your physique. Thus, if you walk around in a plain T-shirt and your female acquaintances remark that you surely work out, you’re fine. From that point onward, adding more muscle… Continue reading How to figure out whether you’re buff enough for successfully picking up girls

About Jordan Peterson’s backpedalling on calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”

I criticized Jordan Peterson for calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”, and outlined that MGTOW consists of two groups: genuine MGTOWs who realize that the odds are stacked against them. The world is full of shitty women and the court system will eat them alive. There is another group: “Virgin-TOW”. Those are men who seek shelter in… Continue reading About Jordan Peterson’s backpedalling on calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”

[Sticky] Want a head start? Buy my books!

By now you have learned that “just being yourself” doesn’t get you girls, unlike your mom told you. You may also have learned that approaching hundreds of girls indiscriminately doesn’t get you laid either, let alone with “10s”. So, what is left? That’s easy, check out my books. My free ebook Debunking the Seduction Community played a… Continue reading [Sticky] Want a head start? Buy my books!

The Crab Mentality in “Entourage”

Besides Vinnie constantly acting like a cuck, yet not suffering any consequences for it, “Entourage” depicts something else the average male can readily identify with: crab mentality. This concept is based on an interpretation of crab behavior. Apparently, if you dump a few hundred crabs into a barrel, they drag each other down instead of… Continue reading The Crab Mentality in “Entourage”

Why “Entourage” is “Sex and the City” for beta men

Quite some time ago we had a brief discussion on the HBO show “Entourage” in an Open Thread. I would like to revisit that and flesh out my previous remarks. “Entourage” has often been highlighted by PUA gurus morons as an example of a show full of characters guys wanting to get better with women… Continue reading Why “Entourage” is “Sex and the City” for beta men

You are a lot better than your competition than you think

Blog reader “Haselnuss” left an interesting comment on the recent Open Thread. It’s about women who, despite being OK-ish looking, can’t get a guy to date them. My first response was to ask about socioeconomic status. But there is of course another point to it. He wrote: I know several 20 y/o women. All of… Continue reading You are a lot better than your competition than you think

No, you won’t live longer just because you got a young spouse

In light of my recent post on the bullshit claim that married men live longer, I’d like to tear another oft-repeated and related claim to shreds. It is the claim that men live longer when they marry younger spouses. You’ll find plenty of sources on that. It goes back to an allegedly solid academic study.… Continue reading No, you won’t live longer just because you got a young spouse

Exercise for Readers: Do married men live longer?

On a recent post, blog reader Don commented: I once asked a question about the absurdity of women expecting their husbands to pay for a life time of her expenses just because they love them by forcing ideals of marriage. I got similar responses from Feminists. One even suggested that men live longer in marriages.… Continue reading Exercise for Readers: Do married men live longer?

An overlooked example of the masculinity (“alphaness”) of Dirty Harry

Some time ago a reader posted a link to a clip taken from one of the Dirty Harry movies. The video is further below. I don’t want to focus so much on what Clint Eastwood’s character says, or his body language, which shows his utter disapproval of the charade he is supposed to take part… Continue reading An overlooked example of the masculinity (“alphaness”) of Dirty Harry

Don’t bother getting body fat down to sub-10 % levels

There is a downright obsession with “six-pack abs” and low body fat in general in certain corners of the internet. When skimming certain forums, you could be forgiven for thinking that you accidentally arrived at a watering hole for gay men, such is the adoration (“miring”) many guys show for other guys with well-developed abs… Continue reading Don’t bother getting body fat down to sub-10 % levels

Everything you do is a reflection of your personality

Last weekend I’ve had a very interesting conversation with a long-time reader of my blog and books. (Thanks again, N.!) We were not talking about pick-up, but instead mostly about trading. To summarize his view on psychological aspects, my interlocutor made the statement that trading is essentially a mirror of one’s personality. Well, books have… Continue reading Everything you do is a reflection of your personality

Perception vs Reality: Everybody is making it

We certainly live in a society in which perceptions seem more important than substance. College degrees are getting acquired not for their knowledge, but because they are allegedly a status symbol. For instance, in most of Europe higher education is effectively for free for EU citizens, but there are private universities too, which charge a… Continue reading Perception vs Reality: Everybody is making it
