Open Post: Will Evolution Eliminate Extreme Female Hypergamy?

The following was recently posted by Richard: I had a thought today regarding something that has been on my mind for quite a while.

What Avid Video Gamers and Crazy Cat Ladies Have in Common

It is a self-evident truth that men and women are different. Nonetheless, the leftist mainstream wants women to compete with men in male domains, with various levels of success. Yet, letting men compete with women in female domains is much less important as that would, presumably, lead to increased oppression of women. One of the… Continue reading What Avid Video Gamers and Crazy Cat Ladies Have in Common

Open Post: Intelligence and Truth Seeking

A new commenter, Z, left a great comment regarding intelligence and an interest in questioning appearances and learning about the causes of things. You could aptly call the approach of the average person regarding modeling reality black-box thinking, and if you think I’m exaggerating, ask the average woman how she thinks some part of her… Continue reading Open Post: Intelligence and Truth Seeking

Pickup and the Problem of Incongruent Behavior

We got some good news recently: one of our former regulars, Lisbon, reappeared and told us that he got a girlfriend. Congratulations, bro! This is significant because he had been telling us for many months that he’s an “incel” and can’t get laid to save his life. He somehow had drunk sluts in clubs making… Continue reading Pickup and the Problem of Incongruent Behavior

Fallacy Time: “Height Doesn’t Matter Because I’m Doing Better than My Taller Friends”

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”

Hyper-Attractiveness in Mass Media and the Problem of Skewed Male Self-Image

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

Quickly Decide if You Want to Have Sex With Her

Sometimes, guys pursue a woman not because they are sexually interested in her, but for various other reasons. A big one is validation.

Why Successful Bachelors Struggle with Finding Meaning in Life

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

You Need to Accept the Harsh Truth (About Everything)

In a recent Open Thread we discussed whether women are really attracted to their husbands. I stated that most women are not, and based this on the observation that women flock towards a small fraction of men in online and real-life dating. Those men get all the action. It’s just another example of the Pareto… Continue reading You Need to Accept the Harsh Truth (About Everything)

Getting Prematurely Attached to That One Girl

A few concepts old-school PUAs introduced are valid, such as “one-itis”, i.e. obsessing about a particular girl. In this particular scene, though, this meant PUAs obsessing about more or less any girl who gave them any kind of attention at all. You had guys report about “catching one-itis” basically every time they went out. In… Continue reading Getting Prematurely Attached to That One Girl

If One Girl Has Had Sex With You, Many More Will

We have talked about the 80/20 split in male attractiveness on online dating platforms according to which women deem only 20% of men to be attractive, and 80% as unattractive. In contrast, when men rate women, the result is a bell curve with most women rated as around average, with outliers on both ends of… Continue reading If One Girl Has Had Sex With You, Many More Will

Dealing With Rejection Effectively

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.

How Women Benefit From Claiming that Personality, not Looks, Matter in Men

In a recent exchange in the comments section, blog reader “GoodLookingAndSleazy” pointed out the existence of the concept of men having some (supposedly) unknown quality that makes them irresistible. It is often referred by the French expression “je ne sais quoi”, which translates to “I don’t know what”. Interestingly, it is only the most handsome… Continue reading How Women Benefit From Claiming that Personality, not Looks, Matter in Men

If MGTOW Wasn’t a Threat, the Mainstream Would Ignore it

There are countless fringe communities, many wholesome, some harmful. Most of them happily exist in their own little bubble. Very few of them outwardly promote themselves. For instance, in the gay community, the garishness of the “queers” is viewed with some disdain. Yet, any sexual perversion is getting plenty of airtime in mainstream media, and… Continue reading If MGTOW Wasn’t a Threat, the Mainstream Would Ignore it

Evaluating a Woman’s Character Based on Weak Signals

One of the complaints of married men is that their sweetheart quickly transformed after marriage. Their slim, high-libido, rational, and frugal girlfriend turned into a fat, frigid, manic, and wasteful wife. Of course, I am exaggerating a little bit. Still, they claim that they did not see it coming. However, it is quite possible to… Continue reading Evaluating a Woman’s Character Based on Weak Signals

Chadstruck: The Paramount Importance of Physical Attraction in Dating

When browsing the black pill wiki incels.wiki, I came across an entry for the term “chadstruck“, which is their version of the term “lovestruck”. Of course, this is not a perfect equivalence as intense physical attraction has little to do with love and much more with lust.

Anti-Game and The Problem of Lack of Confidence

One of the most persistent half-truths in the seduction and red pill communities is that confidence gets you laid. “Just be confident, bro!,” you were told.

Pity Fucks and Mercy Fucks Do Not Exist Outside of Fantasy

I recently spoke to a very attractive guy whose self-image has not quite caught up to reality yet as he still believes that he’s only average. Compared to the average guy, though, he’s doing very well. Should he manage to lose his “anti-game“, he’ll do phenomenally well in the future. It sounds as if he… Continue reading Pity Fucks and Mercy Fucks Do Not Exist Outside of Fantasy
