Recently I had to attend a tech conference. As you can easily guess, the demographics at such events are quite predictable. You have over 90% of guys in the attendance, all of them in some tech field and therefore able to not only feed themselves and even an entire family on one income, if they so desire. You have a few diversity hires roaming the hallway, but that is about it.
When you go outside and take a good look at men and women, you notice that there are not a lot of good-looking ones around. It is rare enough that people even stay in shape, even though there are some pockets where this observation does not hold. For instance, at the local business faculty, it seems that the students spend more time on their looks than in the library. This is often mocked as an example of the shallowness of those people, but perhaps a better explanation is that they have a more realistic view on the world and know that they will be treated better than a fat and poorly dressed version of themselves.
Engineering is not known for the fashion sense of its students and you will also have a hard time spotting any hot chicks. Thus, what I observed at that conference was not in the least surprising. Yet, as I made my way through the masses, I could not help but think that any beta-buxxer could very easily stand out from the rest by just dressing a bit better and spending an hour or two at the gym every week.
Of course, the fate of the beta-buxxer is not enviable. He only gets used as a walking wallet and without his earning power, he would get nowhere at all. Yet, this does not mean that those men should largely ignore their looks. There were some who seemingly did not even bother to take a shower. It sounds like a horrible cliche, but it is, sadly, true. Well, put yourself in the shoes of some Stacy who has had more trains run through her than some remote train station: she needs a walking wallet, and surely it will be a lot easier for her to fake an orgasm if the dude does not look like a complete slob.
I do not advocate the beta-buxxer strategy, but if this the game you need to play, then I would argue that a relatively minimal investment of time and money can put you way above your competition. After all, you are no longer competing against Chads because the women who go after beta-buxxers are no longer on Chad’s radar.
