In my last article, I made the statement, “If money was taken care of, probably a fair number of men would be fine with just pursuing their hobbies.” There are some implications to this, which I am exploring further in this post. By and large, I think that men are happiest if they have some… Continue reading Work, then What?
Adaptability is one of the biggest strengths of men, and it is also arguably one of their biggest weaknesses. To put it simply, you can get used to more or less anything and before you know it, this environment will be your new normal. Anybody who has ever travelled to a poorer country probably knows… Continue reading Getting out of the Shit Tier
I recently spoke to a client who wanted to discuss the direction his life has been going. One issue we breached was having children. For context, this guy has not even reached his mid-20s but has enjoyed spectacular early success in his career. This year, he expects to pocket $200 to $220k, which probably comfortably… Continue reading If you Want Kids Later, You Can Have Them
I received the following article request: Is a Chad always a Chad? So do most women still consider guys who were Chads in their 20s as Chad in their 30s and 40s assuming the guys stay in decent shape (not sloppy or obese) and take care of their hair (ie if they are balding opt… Continue reading Once a Chad, Always a Chad?
One of the key phrases Looks Maximus uses is, “life-affirming experiences”. You may dismiss this as posturing, considering that he promotes a “whore-maxxing” lifestyle as the complete opposite of the life the traditional wage-slave lives. I am referring to the study hard, work hard, and at the very end, after a life of relative discomfort,… Continue reading The Wisdom of “Looks Maximus” (II): Life-Affirming Experiences
A while ago, Pickernanny left two meaty comments on open world videogames and how they relate to the male existence. In particular, he draws attention how unsatisfying modern life is for men. I reproduce his comments below, followed by some remarks by myself. Even if you are not much of a gamer, you may find… Continue reading The Allure of Open-World Games vs. the Drabness of Modern Life
When you watch Wrath of Man the first time, you may be surprised that the main protagonist downplays his abilities. There is some foreshadowing as well. For instance, he ends up passing some skill test at exactly 70%, which is the minimum required. Later on, though, we learn that he is a highly trained killer… Continue reading Notes on Wrath of Man (II): Hiding your Power Level
Don Giovanni left a very thought-provoking comment in the current Open Thread. I would like to give it greater visibility, so I am reproducing it below. My response is in the comments section. One theme that has been discussed often in this blog is that a woman who is, say, 30 years old, single, with… Continue reading Open Post: The Aging Single Chad is Also Unhappy
Recently, we have been talking about experiences with difficult women on this blog. As it turned out, some of you have encountered or even had relationships with women suffering from cluster B personality disorders. It’s probably a bit of a stretch to say that those women “suffer” because they seem to quite enjoy living out… Continue reading Speaking Openly about Difficulties with Women
I think we all agree here that height is a hugely important factor for getting girls. It may even be the most important component of your looks that determines your overall level of success, or your potential maximum. Of course, this argument is based on the assumption that we keep all other factors equal. This… Continue reading Fallacy Time: “Height Doesn’t Matter Because I’m Doing Better than My Taller Friends”
Many men, even attractive ones, drastically underestimate where they rank in terms of attractiveness. There are many reasons for this. With younger men, an issue is that women their age may simply have access to a larger dating pool. An 18-year old girl could date guys of any age and may realistically go for someone… Continue reading Hyper-Attractiveness in Mass Media and the Problem of Skewed Male Self-Image
In the olden days, it was easy to find meaning in life. True, life was ultimately as meaningless as it is nowadays, but before you arrived at that point, if at all, you were close to the natural end of your lifespan already anyway. Before you could find ever-lasting peace six feet under, after pondering… Continue reading Why Successful Bachelors Struggle with Finding Meaning in Life
A recent discussion in The Open Thread #54 centered around the question of how to deal with rejection. Basically every guy who has ever approached a woman knows that getting turned down can really sting. In the worst case, a high number of rejections may even demotivate guys from approaching women altogether in the future.… Continue reading Dealing With Rejection Effectively
Imagine you ask your boss if you could get a certain qualification, of course sponsored by the company. At first he is a bit skeptical yet mildly supportive, telling you that you should hit some milestones first or maybe just put in a few more years. You diligently do that. Later, you revisit this topic.… Continue reading Admitting That It Is Not Going to Happen
In my book Minimal Game, I mention the anecdote of some Russian teenage girl sitting on top of me who suddenly got shy and told me to “not look at it”, referring to her supposedly asymmetrical nostrils. This struck me as utterly ludicrous. As I further pointed out in this context, the problem with unrealistic… Continue reading Dealing With Unjustified Feelings of Hopelessness
I had a client recently who asked me for some career guidance. He was toying with the idea of reducing his hours so that he could have more time for chasing after women. For context, the guy is quite young, early to mid-20s, and has already made some impressive strides in his fields. In short,… Continue reading Should you do X or Chase Women?
A (supposedly) female reader got very upset after reading my article “The Plummeting Price of Pussy“. She writes: You guys are a bunch of sexless incels. By the ignorance of your sexist conversation none of you get regular consistent sex. It’s like the blind leading the blind with these comments. Sound like a bunch of… Continue reading How Women Turn Chads into Misogynists
Back in the days I faced a lot of hostility online by PUAs and their sad gaggle of shills when I pointed out that looks do indeed matter and that height is very important for success with women. In contrast, the commercial seduction industry promoted the claim that looks do not matter. As height falls… Continue reading The Ultimate Post on Male Height
In a recent article, I showed why the supposed superior social skills of women are nothing but a fantasy. Once their looks are gone, their manipulative powers disappear. Subsequently, I thought about male charisma. I remembered that when I was much younger, I sometimes met guys, peers and superiors alike, whom I perceived to be… Continue reading The Truth about Male Charisma
Modern politicians are a collection of sad sacks. It’s basically a collection of spineless cucks who sell out your country for chump change. There has been some backlash building up, with the rise of nationalist parties in Europe, but our God Emperor Donald Trump has been quite a disappointment. He has not built a wall,… Continue reading Ted Cruz and Looks-Maxing
I used to not pursue women until I was in my late 20s, which was by choice. I simply viewed them as an unpleasant distraction as well as a time and money sink. Instead, I was much happier going my own way and pursuing other interests. In the long run, this all worked out splendidly… Continue reading You are not Missing Out if you’re a Late Bloomer
A reader of my blog recently left a comment on my post, Proud Sluts Are Worse Than Guys Who Burn Their Money He writes that he is fed up with women with high partner counts: The women I’ve dated who had high partner counts had issues and I’ve learned my lesson the hard way. Inquiries… Continue reading Men Who No Longer Really Care About Women
If you watch Turd Flinging Monkey (TFM) on YouTube, you may have heard him use the phrase that “testosterone is the hormone of the Gods.” Sometimes, he even plays a silly clip with a booming and distorted voice with that message. Yet, I have severe reservations about such strong claims. TFM uses that phrase when… Continue reading Testosterone is not the Hormone of the Gods
A relatively frequent occurrence among those of my clients who book multiple sessions, with an eye towards long-term improvements, is that they sometimes hit a plateau. Surely, those of you who worked hard to improve your odds fucking random women have made similar experiences. Skillful early physical escalation is a good example. It takes experience… Continue reading Progress is Often Invisible
There is the widely-held belief that more money makes you more successful with women. I consider this a highly dubious claim. First, for hook-ups, the question of how thick your wallet is likely does not even enter the picture. Sure, if you’re operating at the level of a genuine hobo, the most chiseled abs most… Continue reading Success with Women and the Diminishing Returns of Money: Billionaire Edition
One of the games I was recently curious about but not quite sure whether I want to buy it was Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. The novelty of open-world games has long worn off for me, and Rockstar’s earlier title, Grand Theft Auto V, the most recent game of that genre I played, was a… Continue reading Red Dead Redemption 2 has a Valuable Lesson for Men
After the seduction community collapsed, which I am very happy to have played a major role in (cf. Debunking the Seduction Community), several follow-up communities sprang up. An existing one got an influx of people, too. The existing community that absorbed part of the old seduction community is MGTOW, i.e. Men Going Their Own Way.… Continue reading The Biggest Problem of the Black Pill Community: Defeatism
I recall that when I heard of “micro-pigmentation” the first time, I was a bit skeptical. Instead of a costly and time-consuming hair transplant, you get black spots tattooed all over your scalp, with the effect that it looks as if you’re wearing your hair very short. It seemed a bit odd and more of… Continue reading Micro-Pigmentation: An Alternative to a Hair Transplant?
We have been having an interesting exchange on the post, “The futility of wanting to impress with money.” I’d like to start with a humorous question Shawn asked, with regards to the observation that throughout history, most men did not procreate. He wrote: “Why didn’t Aaron just take one for the team and impregnate a… Continue reading When Beta Providers Get Laid, It Is Not Real Sex
Quite recently there was a comment by a new reader of this blog. He wrote the following as a response to my article Would you bother with women if prostitution was legal and (very) cheap?. I’m actually living this lifestyle. I live in Austria, prostitution is legal here, and I have sex with escorts/prostitutes on… Continue reading Married Men and Hookers
Some time ago there was a comment on my blog in which a supposed quality guy voiced his confusion that he wasn’t getting laid despite all his quality attributes. He somehow confused “quality guys” with “weak beta simp’. The first question he asked was: 1. What is it about these guys that women love about… Continue reading Supposed Quality Guys
After posting my article on how I would raise my son in order to keep him from turning into a spineless little simp who puts women on a pedestal, my girlfriend made the following objection: But, but, but what if he would turn jaded or cynical. Wouldn’t that be worse? This objection is easy to… Continue reading When it comes to Women, it’s better for a Man to be Jaded or Cynical than a Simp
A while ago one of my readers, Neutralrandomthroughts, asked me the following, which I paraphrase from memory: If you had a son, would you encourage him to fuck around? This is a question I have thought about quite a bit. My girlfriend also asked me about. In the following, I’ll outline my current position on… Continue reading Your son should have plenty of sexual experience
There is the phenomenon of the 30k-millionaire, i.e. the guy who barely gets by but who pretends to be a big spender. If you have ever been to an expensive club and seen four or five guys sharing a table with exactly one bottle, that is the kind of guy I am talking about. They… Continue reading The futility of wanting to impress women with money
I recently came across the seedy Korean manga SStudy by Husky-Nom and Edge-Edge, which has been translated as Sunggi’s Study Group. I quite enjoyed it. During its three seasons, which total 77 installments, we follow a group of young Korean men and women whose life is in limbo. They have finished high school, and their… Continue reading The Korean manga “SStudy” shows how women lead men astray and wreck their life
Feminists, Tradcucks, and anybody else who has a vested interest in financially exploiting men harps on the supposed fact that married men make more money. That is of course a confusion of cause and consequence. It is not that marriage magically puts money in the pocket of men. Instead, you have to make money in… Continue reading Married Men and Sterilized Dogs
This article is a follow-up piece to Walter White in Breaking Bad starts out as the ultimate beta male. Quite recently I finished watching the entirety of Breaking Bad, all five seasons. I don’t think this TV show comes anywhere near the greatest of all time, The Sopranos, but it is nonetheless quite good. The… Continue reading Reflections on Breaking Bad: Big Bucks, Betas, and Nasty Bitches
I recently began watching Breaking Bad as I’ve come across too much praise for this show over the years to keep ignoring it. I decided to give it a chance, and after two episodes, I have to say that it is really good. The last show I watched and enjoyed was Spartacus a few years… Continue reading Walter White in Breaking Bad starts out as the ultimate beta male
The other day I bumped into a guy at a conference. He looked a bit desperate, but certainly seemed intelligent. As I spoke to him, it quickly became obvious that I’m talking to someone very intelligent. As a brief summary, he has earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in mathematics at one of the best… Continue reading Another man who lets a woman wreck his life
The other day I listened to a few MGTOW-inspired videos on autoplay in the background. I don’t recall the source, but one guy raised the question if porn consumption has led to men being more accepting of men getting cheated on or making the even agreeable to their girls fucking other guys, possibly even in… Continue reading Has porn been breeding a generation of (literal) cucks?
Some weeks ago I came across a blog post by a high-ranking Google engineer, an early employee who is most certainly worth many millions of dollars. His post was about his wife, who died all of a sudden. He didn’t mention the cause of death. I don’t want to draw undue attention to him, and… Continue reading Does a (perceived) lack of choice make men settle for fat women?
I occasionally come across references to the documentary “The Red Pill”. It’s not so much that people in the various manosphere/men’s rights/mgtow/red pill communities speak very highly of it. Instead, it is praised as an attempt to bring awareness of contemporary men’s issues into the mainstream. I recently watched that documentary. In a nutshell, if… Continue reading Review: The Red Pill (Documentary, 2016)
You’re horny and you want to get laid. Because you know what matters for short-term sexual attraction, you work out and dress well. Thus, you spend a lot of time, energy, and money to look good so that one of the girls at the local club decides to spread her legs for you. You think… Continue reading With Women, Your Reward for Success is Working Harder and Paying More
The other day I posted an article as Aaron S. Elias in which I share my impressions of James Damore’s class action lawsuit against Google. The published PDF is quite entertaining as it sheds light on what an utterly degenerate organization Google has become. My personal highlight was a cucked employee who sleeps in the… Continue reading Cucked men and their misguided belief that they are “progressive”
Yesterday I published a guest post by my (Asian) girlfriend, in which she describes two of her cucked male friends. In this post, I’m going to elaborate on my perception of Asian or, more precisely, Chinese culture and why I think this leads to the outcome we so often see: meek men and submissive women.… Continue reading How Asian culture breeds desirable women and cucked men
A topic I’ve been discussing quite a bit with my girlfriend recently is how Asian culture affects men much more negatively than women. After all, a submissive woman is desirable, while a submissive man is not. In this post, my submissive Asian cutie describes two of her cucked friends. I will follow this up with… Continue reading Guest post by my girlfriend: Two exemplary cucked Asian men
The reason fat shaming works and why fat women are so embarrassed about being fat is due to hundreds of millions of years of evolution. Women are of course perfectly aware of the importance of being slender if they want to attract a good provider. No slender woman who is working hard on staying in… Continue reading ‘Woman’ is to ‘fat’ like ‘man’ is to ___ ?
It is not uncommon that men put off plans. They may dream of writing their novel, traveling to some far-off destination or trying some crazy hobby. Not now, but someday. Yet, the time is never right. I have even met people in their late 20s or early 30s who told me about what they intended… Continue reading The Importance of Getting It out of Your System
In my last article, Your sex drive vs. your desire of picking up women, I mentioned that one motivation behind my wild seducer days was that I was pretty obsessed with sex for a while. It’s doubtful whether I could seriously have called myself a sex-addict, but seeing how wishy-washy a discipline psychology is, I… Continue reading Determination and pickup
Some days ago a reader pointed me to Blackdragon’s blog. That is a guy I first encountered on the old mASF forum about a decade ago. I don’t have the impression that he’s stupid, but I always had the impression that his priorities are a bit odd. For one, back then he insisted on solely… Continue reading Your sex drive vs. your desire of picking up women
