I received the following article request:
When a Chad is surrounded by other Chads, do those Chads ever pose a sexual threat? I posted this comment in one of your Open Threads. How should a Chad handle these situations? How does an aging Chad cope that his looks are fading and will no longer be able to compete in the sexual market since there’s a new crop of younger Chads? Lastly, how does a Chad deal with a situation where his girl wants to monkey branch to other Chad equal or younger to his age?
Instead of an essay-style response, I will go through the questions one-by-one.
When a Chad is surrounded by other Chads, do those Chads ever pose a sexual threat? I posted this comment in one of your Open Threads. How should a Chad handle these situations?
In the sexual marketplace there is fierce competition. There is also not an absolute hierarchy, so two attractive guys could be ranked differently by different women. That being said, those guys still need to make a move. I would argue that competition among Chads is less of a problem because those guys are simply more experienced. In other words, they know that they need to preempt threats posed by other guys. They act fast because if they do not then some other guy will.
Any experienced guy who gets a good opportunity to pull some chick will capitalize on it. This is quite likely a response to perceived sexual competition by other guys. They know that they need to strike the iron when it is hot. There are more guys interested in taking home the hottie you have been working on, so if you fumble, or hem and haw too much, she will lose interest, which will create an opening for other guys. This does not just apply to club hookups but to all kinds of situations. If you run “long game”, some other guy can easily “slide into her DMs”, meet up with her, bang her, and then she will forget you even exist.

Incidentally, I know a few guys in their late 30s and early 40s who still (or again) bang girls in their 20s. This includes a good friend of mine who is currently finalizing his divorce. The key point is that the world is not full of Chads, and a tall, attractive guy in his late 30s is probably a lot more attractive than some run-of-the-mill guy in his early 20s.
Of course, we will all eventually succumb to physiological changes due to age. Yet, nature has it arranged so that you can quite easily get to grips with it as your sex drive declines with age. In addition, your threshold for the kind of behavior you accept of women tends to be higher so that you may happily forego a lay with a woman who seems mentally unstable, no matter how good she looks.
There is also the issue of the current economic situation. In some ways, this might be a replay of the recession in 2000 or 2008. In short, right now a lot of younger guys have a really hard time getting on their feet. In contrast, aged Chads in their 30s, 40s, or 50s should have their life together. This puts them in an entirely different category for those women because as much as they love getting railed by Ultra-Chad, they love it even more if there is a plausible way forward to a stable relationship, in particular when times are tough. A 25 year-old woman who has recently gotten laid off from her HR job at, say, Twitter or some other former venture-capital darling will pay a lot more attention to the financial stability of a Chad than she would have done a mere two or three months ago when she was making six figures for asking applicants for senior software engineering positions to give them examples of when they acted as an “ally” for women and underrepresented minorities.

If we are talking about short-term relationships, this is not really a problem as there is no difference to what a younger Chad experiences. The fuck buddies you had in your 20s who stopped texting you after a few weeks jumped ship to another guy back then as well, after all. The underlying issue is that you will not be able to keep a woman around indefinitely long if you are not ready to commit. At some point, she will get tired of not getting anything out of you putting your dick in her. For a while, she will hope that you make her your girlfriend but if this just does not happen and you keep dodging her we-need-to-talk-about-us bullshit, she will try her luck with some other guy instead. Of course, that guy may as well just want to bang her for a while, and could not think of anything more ridiculous than dating her and introducing her to his parents.
In the case of long-term relationships, I would argue that age works in your favor, simply because she is also getting older. Assume that she is 28 and you are 40. You live together, and she enjoys living rent-free and enjoys some other comforts, such as getting to take your dick regularly. How is she going to improve her lot in life? You were the hottest, most successful guy she could get a few years ago, and now she is older and a little less hot. She will generally not be able to get a better guy than you. Of course, some women delude themselves and think that they can, but reality will teach them otherwise.
