How Pre-Selection Affects Your Online Dating Profile

How Pre-Selection Affects Your Online Dating Profile

Jul 31, 2013

Pre-selection. Pretty much every tenet of game revolves around this concept. The idea is simple: Women want a man of value. The best indicator of a man with value is finding a man that other women are attracted to. It’s a meta signal, because men start exhibiting traits that demonstrate preselection instead of traits that show actual value in a mate. Strength, money, access to resources are actually beneficial to a potential mate. Instead, men find they can exhibit these meta-traits to attract women, because possessing these meta traits demonstrate access to women, who theoretically found him to display other traits of value (such as strength or access to resources). Of course, that means if you can learn to exploit preselection, you can more likely attract mates without necessarily possessing the actual traits that give a man value, only the ones that signal that others think you do! Being seen in public with a woman or multiple women is the standard of pre-selection social proof. Almost all the signals that game attempts to exploit are all attempts at hacking pre-selection, by giving the appearance of pre-selection when there is none actually happening: Abundance Mentality – playing it fast and loose with women because you don’t need any single one of them since you’ve always got more Displaying confidence – showing that this isn’t your first rodeo signals that you’ve been with other women Both of these fake pre-selection by displaying traits that would otherwise be present in people who have been pre-selected by other women. These hacks have been useful in creating what’s known as the gaming community or pickup community. But there’s a major game changer on the scene: Online dating. The Problem of Online Dating and Pre-Selection The problem with online dating is that it signals something very anti-pre-selection: You do not have a mate or options, so you are going online to find one. Even if it’s not true, there is an undertone that being online means you are unable to attract mates elsewhere. Naturally, the tendency of game-savvy men is to still attempt to game on their profiles. But it’s difficult if you don’t recognize the disadvantages of pre-selection in this context....

Feminism & Personal Freedom

Feminism & Personal Freedom

Jul 26, 2013

If you’re ever in need of a good laugh, I sincerely recommend you throw over to WhoNeedsFeminism.com. If you’re not already aware, Who Needs Feminism is a site where women and (I am ashamed to say) some men write a reason for why they need feminism on a piece of paper of some sort, eg. “I need feminism because sexual girl power traditional social construct empowerment rape culture blah blah vaginal superiority.” Granted, for that level of sarcasm you’d need to go to WhoNeedsFeminism.org. This site is essentially one giant troll to their “dotcom” cousin; and a giant, sarcastic middle finger to feminism (They’re a non for profit organization, they just really want to get the information out there). The reason I’m going into all this is simply because earlier I was surprised at just how many of the posts left me thinking, “And so to fix this… you would do… what exactly?” Let me give you a few examples: Notice the similarity between all of these? If you were to go to each of these girls and ask them what they want done about it, the answers would almost certainly be “They shouldn’t be allowed to say that stuff anymore!” So then the question to ask simply is, what ACTUALLY would you do about it? Ban it? Pass legislation to prohibit people saying anything to offend you or any other delicate flower in the entire country? Label “rape jokes” as “hate speech”? Make it a crime for anyone to openly disagree with the feminist doctrine? Freedom of speech anyone? Oh and in 2012 a radical group of feminists in Europe wanted to ban wolf-whistling and men calling women “darling”. YES. They want to take away men’s whistling rights. Oh but there’s more: Not only do they wish to take away our freedom of speech, but this young girl is after our looking rights! Because somehow, male appreciation of a female’s “feminine attributes” is offensive to her? Forgiving me for jumping to conclusions but I can’t help but feel as though this is eerily… Socialist? Or communist or fascist or whatever trendy word is being tossed around these days. But I know what you’re...

The Other Other Men

The Other Other Men

My discovery of the Manosphere brought me to a shocking realization; I never had a father figure who taught me the importance of being a real man. Instead my father succumbed to the feminist agenda and eventually became its official mouthpiece in my house. The Discovery My accidental discovery of the Manosphere about 2 months ago has its humble beginnings in January 2012. It was the last semester of college and I was mostly preoccupied with finding a job that would please everybody. A friend offhandedly showed me some pickup videos from Simple Pickup and I was instantly hooked. Up until that point I had a pretty frustrating time in college with relationships and dating. I had been with several women and even had a girlfriend, but all the women I dated lacked self-esteem and were carrying a lot of heavy baggage. Come to think of it now, I never really connected with my ex on a deep level and we just stayed around each other for the convenience and validation. The women who had any semblance of self-respect would promptly friendzone me and leave me wondering why the world was so cruel. After seeing those videos, nay, devouring those videos like a fat kid eating cake, I gathered the courage to go out and hit on women in public. I won’t go into the details of my pickup adventures and just say that I’m much better with women than I ever was before. To supplement my newfound obsession with pickup I started reading a lot of literature on self-improvement and self-development. Some of it was good and some of it was bad, but the habit of reading practical literature stuck with me and helped me make a lot of important discoveries about myself. I finally started confronting my personal issues which I had long suppressed for a variety of reasons. Family Issues Fast forward to today and I finally realize that my pickup journey had a much deeper motivation than my sub-par dating life. Growing up, I always held my father in the highest esteem because he is a charismatic and handsome man. He has a wonderful story-telling ability that would keep me...

Threatpoint created the Puerarchy

Threatpoint created the Puerarchy

Jul 22, 2013

I believe it was Dalrock who coined the term “threatpoint” regarding marriage and divorce reform in the West over the past 40 years. He was referring to the restructuring of marriage, giving more power to person who wants out, and reducing the power previously held by the partner interested in preserving the marriage: They aren’t under any illusions;  divorce reform is all about redistributing power from the spouse who wants to honor the marriage vows to the spouse who doesn’t.  This is one of the best kept open secrets I’ve ever encountered.   Also, don’t be confused by the gender neutral terms;  women are overwhelmingly the ones who don’t want to honor the marriage vows.  This is confirmed by the academic study“These Boots Are Made for Walking”:  Why Most Divorce Filers Are Women and the data on the age of wife at the time of divorce. Putting this together, divorce reform is all about redistributing power from the husband who wants to honor the marriage vows to the wife who doesn’t. This threatpoint gives leverage to women in a marriage, giving her unilateral control over the future of the commitment. Does she want out? She gets a payday. He will avoid this (that is, he will try to maintain the marriage) at all costs, hopefully for reasons such as love, commitment, and loyalty… but the risk of financial ruin certainly cannot be overlooked. And this, ladies and gentlemen, meant that marriage was now at the emotional whim of women. There are books upon books about the history of marriage. Armchair theorists (such as myself) can only speculate about the economics of religion and the institution of marriage. It’s hard to know what was going through our ancestors’ minds, if anything at all. One thing is certain, however: marriage was an effective control on hypergamy. For those of you just joining us, hypergamy is the tendency for women to mate with the highest status male available. One of the problems this raises is that built into the psychology of women inherent in hypergamy is their need to constantly test (shit-test) their mates to ensure they are up to snuff, and prepare for jumping to another branch if a mate of...

Fitness is the Base of My Game

Fitness is the Base of My Game

Every Halloween in Tokyo for the past three years, I’ve dressed up as a lifeguard complete with super short shorts, aviator sunglasses, no shirt, and my nose painted white. You may call me unimaginative, but I’m a cheap bastard from a warm climate and I’ll take every chance I can get to bask in attention while I stroll around in public with as little clothing as socially acceptable. Since most dudes don’t have the nuts to stroll around a party semi-nude, the costume has been a hit wherever I went, year after year. The first two years I donned my trusty lifeguard costume, back when I had the body of an asexual Asian teenager, I received about the same amount of attention from gay dudes as I did from women. The only thing was it was obvious that only the gay dudes wanted to bang my little Asian bottom. I quickly realized that most of the chicks just wanted to take a picture of the funny looking dude in the red shorts so they could post it on Facebook when they ran away before I could ask, “S-s-so what’s your name?” Back in those days of no-game hell, when I thanked my lucky stars when a girl let me park my beef bus in her tuna garage, I figured putting up with the odd sexual advance from a man was better than being completely invisible to women. Also, it gets really hot and uncomfortable when you’re dancing to electro club jams in a polyester Pikachu suit. Last Halloween was different. I had been practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu heavily for about two years, and an interest in improving my performance caused me to optimize my diet. I had also recently begun barbell training to improve my explosive strength. I arrived at that year’s costume party with broad grappler’s shoulders and a narrow waist. Even though I weighed a mere 132 lbs at the time, the difference in reaction was stark. I felt hands running across my shoulders after I posed with slutty nurses for a picture. Apropos of nothing, a tart in cat ears and a mini-skirt pressed her body against mine and said, “Meow!” One...
