Rant/VentingThe fact that this sub has 250,000 subscribers is telling something about Western society (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

I've been lurking on this sub for a couple of years now, seen it grow. TRP is now at a quarter million subscribers. That's pretty insane. It speaks very deeply about the current state of relationships in our Westernized countries. It's not a surprise that every time I see a friend that I haven't seen in a while on campus, I hear that he went through a shitty breakup and he's now trying to cope. This happens all the time now. It's become such a common theme for men to get fucked over by women emotionally and the only thing they get to say, over layers and layers of deep emotional trauma, is "it didn't work out"; only to find out she's with some other guy. It's become extremely hard to open up as guys nowadays.

Women tell men to open up, to embrace their feminine side, to cry more. I've come to realize that this is the equivalent of men telling women that it's okay to get fat. We want it to be this way, but biology, our instincts, simply don't allow it. It's just being polite.

This sub has helped me a lot in my life though it's absurd that it has to exist. It's a way for me to communicate with other men who've been through similar hell with women. It reflects the very toxic state of relationships nowadays. The fact that no one talks about this, only in very intimate situations, is beyond me. The more I talk with other men, the more I realize how it causes them to be depressive and repressive, in denial about it. Please speak up. It's tough, man.

Food for thought.

edit 1: bold text

edit 2: added some text

edit 3: This post sure went viral around here. From reading the comments, I think we're all for the most part on the same page. We're pretty sick of this shit. After years of repressing your emotions, it gets crippling and you start compensating for it in ways you don't even realize. You can't repress your humanity. Even high quality men have to go through this game with western women, it's like untangling barbed wire, it's not worth it anymore. More and more men are just turning their backs on any kind of intimate contact with women. And to win at it you need to do the exact opposite of what society tells you, and this is why the 48 laws of power is so popular among CEOs and celebrities.

edit 4: Thank you for the gold random stranger

I've noticed the same. Men who cry and in general act like little bitches will just end up being an another GIRLfriend to these women. Not boyfriend or husband, girlfriend.

My wife (yep, married for 15 years soon) sometimes just idolizes other guys who act like sensitive and caring husbands (=crying bitches) to other women. But at the same time she would NOT want ME to be like that. If I get too emotional she gets lost. So I keep it to myself, and even make an effort to be a little bit of a douche sometimes. And it works. Men are men, women are women.

I've learned this lesson too. You can't expose yourself to them, if you do, game over.

    Women don't love you, they love their idea of you.

    Exactly. You get what I was saying.

    [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (22 children)

    Two honest questions here, because I'm genuinely curious: by your definition, what would "exposing yourself" to a woman look like (yeah, reading that again and the wording has alternative connotations)? And what do you mean by "game over"?

    [–][deleted]  (18 children)

      [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (3 children)

      Hmm. I see what you're saying. Part of me is screaming against accepting ALL of it though. That perspective feels very "all or nothing" to me. Too black and white. From what I've seen, most people are 99% gray. Your wording was entertaining though, for sure.

      My first thought after reading this was that even if I was able to keep up a facade of Herculean proportions for any extended period of time, there's no way I could fall for someone stupid and delusional enough to believe that I was perfect and impervious to damage or pain. Nobody is perfect. Any person that believes otherwise is just proving to me that they aren't perfect either. I'm not in 10th grade anymore, intimate relationship aren't a fucking game. There's too much at stake.

      I posted a little further down here in this thread earlier but I'm not trying to repeat myself or anything. Not married long, but I've cried in front of my wife a couple times. One of those was after going through some old boxes, finding a birthday card from a few years back from my now-dead grandma with a ten dollar bill still in it. Does that make me a little bitch? Is that how she viewed me forever after that? Am I the only one working right now between us? Yes. Is that not taking care of her? If someone tried to do anything stupid to her, would I hesitate to kill someone if it came down to it? No, wouldn't. As hypothetical as that is, I believe it to be true. But in her eyes, wouldn't that be my "ability to defend her"?

      I don't think she was under any delusions about me from the jump, so there were none for me to shatter when I fuck up. I'm both of these things.... I'm a whining bitch in rare occasions, but I've done and am still doing whatever I have to in order to get us through whatever shit situation is in front of us. Financial, sexual, mental health, physical health, etc. If the solution is within my means, I'll do what I have to. The thing is, I can't do EVERYTHING or anything ALL the time. So, is imperfection a sign of weakness? Or would it be more accurate to ask if not being able to manipulate and maintain the VENEER of perfection a weakness? To me, a fake bitch is way more unattractive and unrespectable than a girl with "too much" emotion or too SOMETHING in some other way. If you believe perfection is real, you might as well be 10 years old to me. That's how much I'm NOT going to interact with on any level outside of "passer-by".

        No man, that does make things more clear. I was just seeing a lot of absolutes in your first comment. I get what you're saying though. I think you're spot-on about knowing and feeling are two different things; not mutually exclusive. I've actually said that before. Many times. Thanks

        [–]beginner_ 4 points5 points  (6 children)

        No matter how strong you act, now she knows it's an act. You're not unbreakable and you never will be again.

        if you just act, it will sooner or later be revealed.

        The solution is not to act but to get there. If you actual have confidence, a good education and social skills, even better a network, getting a new job won't be hard assuming you did not fuck up terribly like eating were shit. That is what TRP is about.

          ...then they will STILL leave you for being "too arrogant" or "not sensitive enough".

          Marriages/relationships largely do not last long anymore. Red-pilled alphas get left too when the divorce contagion starts spreading around her circle of influence...

          [–]elloEd 22 points23 points  (9 children)

          We live in a world, especially in today’s time, where everyone looks for approval, we as individual human beings will always try to maintain appearances in public, women are no exception, that’s for anything controversial or political, we don’t want to come off as politically incorrect and offend the majority who says otherwise so we don’t say it. now put that in terms about talking about attraction, let’s say if a teacher asked girls in a classroom what they look for in a man, they would all give the politically correct answer “I want a man who treat me well” “I want someone nice and sweet” “I don’t really care about looks too much” although that isn’t entirely untrue, what they WONT say is the real desires they feel, the attractiveness, the masculinity, the Chad, because if they do, they would get ostracized by others as “shallow” or “slutty” when really that’s just their human instincts which in reality is not wrong to have, us guys have and are more aware of those subconscious feelings for women as well, but they too would be ostracized if they said it out in the open, if we all said we personally wanted someone with a nice body, nice face as well, we too would be ostracized by the other sex and be classified as a “douchebag” and just as “shallow” and be considered “not normal” . If a guy were to be honest and say “no it’s not okay to be fat it’s unattractive” or “they should at least try to make themselves look good” they would get flamed as an asshole, but at the same time, they want us to look good, dress well, have a nice body, etc etc. The thing is, is that our society has not kept that equality open for both sides, way more you hear about women complaining about men being inconsiderate, “all men are the same” “all they want is sex” “boys will be boys” that people who have not realized that women are too the same, don’t even consider it, they really believe that Disney land fantasy that women really want JUST those nice sweet things, and that’s where a lot of guys get stuck in that mentality and when reality comes crashing down on them it hurts, “nice guys finish last” “they always go for the douchebags” blah blah blah. When in reality those “douchebags” are just ordinary men like the rest of us who see right through their bullshit.

          Very well said. There is a new documentary on Netflix about spring break and hook up culture and it is a perfect example of what you're trying to say. By the end it just came down to how terrible men are and how they've been taught to just objectify women. They never once mention how we have adopted a culture where we encourage women to do whatever the fuck they want with zero repercussions. Women accountability for actions is just simply nonexistent today. It's very odd to me how angry people get when you point that out. It's a two way street and I believe both sides are equally responsible for where things are today.

          [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (4 children)

          I went on a rant in the comment section from a post on Facebook a few weeks ago. The post was a screenshot from Twitter (I think) that went viral. Essentially, this teenage girl was telling some middle-aged woman that the hickies on her neck and body aren't trashy, that she's just young, open-minded, and experiencing all that everything has to offer. Basically it said "I'll do what I want, at all times, and if anybody gives me any shit for what comes from it, fuck you." But it was posted from the standpoint of empowerment and liberation. I didn't exactly agree with that. I voiced it in the rant, which contained almost word-for-word what you said "whatever the fuck they want with zero repercussions". Some people agreed with me, some half-flamed me, and a couple people were like "who the fuck hurt you growing up?!". I guess I'm the crazy one for believing that insanity and tasteless behavior is insane. I am noticing a trend though.

          [–]Frenetic_Zetetic 7 points8 points  (2 children)

          The absolute best retort from people is "Nah bro sounds like you've just had bad experiences with women. Who hurt you, boi?"

          Society and it's broken "rules", that's who hurt me/us.

          [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

          Haha! Right. It was a couple days later when I was in the shower and had the idea of responding with something like that or "the whole world! And it still is."

          I mean, I get it. Some random guy is going off in the comment section of some light-hearted, comical meme. I get what that guy (me) looks like. I'm aware, trust me. But I feel like people are just letting so much shit slide and pushing so many things to the back burner that sometimes I just can't swallow any more bullshit. I can't fake another smile. I can't NOT call out bullshit when I see it. I'm not a ruined, burnt out cynic, I promise. But I'm also not getting in line with you fucks that no longer have a voice to say when something doesn't sit right with you.

          [–]BewareTheOldMan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          The issue with this young woman's behavior is that she will someday want marriage to a loyal, stable, reliable, and faithful man who will be an outstanding husband and exceptional father, but will bemoan the fact she is unable to find a "suitable partner."

          This - despite years of debauchery and promiscuous behavior, she will eventually blame men for her "inability" to obtain the aforementioned goal. In short - instead of using her best years to find the very best husband/father archetype, she wasted her time being "young, open-minded, experimenting with anyone and everyone...all while being "empowered and liberated."

          [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

          I don't disagree. Women generally don't know what they want, I see it on every scale and I've experienced it in many of my relationships (romantic, platonic, sexual etc) with women. But you said it, it was not my point. My point was this: do whatever women tell you to do and you're completely fucked; in the same way, if women listened to asslicking BPs telling them that it's okay to be fat, I think men would have the upper hand in relationships and Briffault's law would be flipped on its head. The strange thing is that women know better than to become fat and for some reason a huge majority of us men listen to women like they shit gold and fart rainbows when they tell us that it's okay to cry, and then it bites us in the ass and we realize we just got dumped for it. Women play a better game. Still , women are fucked up

          [–]NineInchNut 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          There are a lot of Chads and lesser Chads who’ll fuck anything anytime. In fact, some prefer chubbies. Betas brag about it before admitting they are intimidated by high value cunts

          [–]AussiecuntTRP 125 points126 points  (22 children)

          Ever since the sexual revolution, women are under no duress to stay with their man. In the past, women would be socially ostracized for cheating on their man or in the middle east in biblical times, outright stoned to death. Women can make it on their own now. They have jobs. They have money. They really don't need a man for anything except to get fucked by them and have kids. This puts the ball totally in their court. They can do whatever their heart desires in terms of sex and relationships.

          Monogamy is dead. Don't get married.

          [–]Gozsayin 22 points23 points  (2 children)

          This is true but I will also point out that even the threat of being stone alive with not stop a female from leaving/cheating on a beta male. Hell if u read history even kings and princes would often have to deal with Treasonous wives fucking the enemy. For a simple example look at Helen of Troy/Ceoplatra/ even King Arthur wife

          [–]1GroundhogLiberator 8 points9 points  (1 child)

          King Arthur wife

          Guinevere. She slept with Lancelot the dragon slaying alpha.

          [–]BewareTheOldMan 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          Women can make it on their own...They really don't need a man...

          This is true - sans the fact many women bemoan the reality of having to work just as hard as men, work until death, and if a single mother have to fill both parental roles.

          It's interesting that despite all this "liberation" and freedom the modern woman is much less happier.

          [–]2Dmva100 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          They don't need 'A Man' but they need 'Men' in the form of the state, lawyers, employers, divorced hubby, etc.

          [–]TheAC997 15 points16 points  (1 child)

          They really don't need a man for anything except to get fucked by them and have kids.

          If this were the case, they wouldn't all be on antidepressants.

          [–]103342 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          And when they were married and staying at home a lot of them would drink during the day.

          Its not about needing or not needing men. Its about the fact that most women live their lives only thinking about not being bored.

            Natural, pragmatic solution in the immediate term is MGTOW. Not saying this is right or what we want, but it is certainly a form of solution.

            [–]colzod 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            Seems like MGTOW is the next step in a major culture change with an end result that is improbable to predict correctly.

            [–]spencerc25 63 points64 points  (8 children)

            Man this is pretty eye opening isn't it. I think we can all agree that those who find this sub and actually stick past one visit have all experienced the "wow the world isn't the way I thought it was" moment. Unfortunately, this typically occurs after years of loneliness, isolation, or backbreaking breakup.

            [–]LeftHookTKD 30 points31 points  (0 children)

            It's funny because a lot of people find this sub through peopling bashing it and call us misogynists. They come here, read some posts and realize that everything here is true, so they stay.

            [–]NoMoreMrNiceGuy95 8 points9 points  (0 children)

            You are absolutely right. On a side note, the relationship feminized blue pill dynamics that are talked about in the west are present in Europe just as much (i'm from Bulgaria, located in southeastern Europe). It's the same Matrix over here. This sub is filled with people from all over the world.

            [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            Fairly new to Reddit (somehow I missed the bus a while ago, apparently). I recently subscribed to this sub after a Google search for.... actually can't remember the EXACT search term, but it dealt in relationship woes/advice/similar experiences. I don't understand the complete dynamic of this sub though. I'm interested enough to post here, so that says something. I already knew that there's no way I could be the only one who has experience a, b, or c and I'm the only person who has had x, y, and z thought or mental process. Still, it's nice to have proof that there are people out there who actually think and wonder instead of just react.

            I was lucky, even as a beta bastard I never had a girlfriend leave me. Part of the reason is that I never really loved them. They cheated, that's for sure.

            But it's true. Girlfriend and wifes leave my friends all the time. I have 2 sisters and the pattern is always the same. Guy checks the girlfriend's cellphone, see girl chatting with a guy, discussion, then split.

            My sisters do the same. They talk with guys even when in a couple. Then the poor bastard boyfriend gets angry, lose frame, and is dumped.

              It's really strange, lately I hear a lot of people I surround myself with whether it's at school, work, or just random people I chat with at a bar talking about having some kind of new spiritual awareness..

              And I don't mean that in some loosy goosy "bro I took shrooms!" kind of way. I notice a lot of my friends (men and women) seeing how fucked up and backward feminism has become. How drug addiction is wiping out our communities. How the world is almost appearing to be satanic and tipping toward some kind of anarchistic lawlessness.

              I personally feel a looming spiritual dread of some kind in the air. Like society is degenerating and we're all becoming stupider-probably related to the bombardment of information from screens every day.

              [–]kuck_kriller 4 points5 points  (0 children)

              Fascinating. We all feel it here too. Humanity can’t survive long like this. We’re living on borrowed time. The cliff dropping birth rates to near 0 among us is proof of it. No kids = no future.

              Don't root for war man, war is the ultimate blue pill: men fighting other men at the whim of old politicians who are stuck in the past and can't understand modern societal issues. If there were a war you'd like have to fight for the feminized country you live in, while all the woman lay back getting fucked by chad and saying how men cause all the wars.

                    [–]antariusz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                    I always recommend air traffic control to the men that can do it. I’m 10 years in. I make 150k a year. Maybe not a millionaire (yet, but I will be long before I retire). But you only need high school and your own ability to think quickly and manage stress/adrenaline.

                    150k in the Midwest goes a long way.

                    That being said. I’m 100% in the camp that you do not need a single beta provider trait to get laid, and doing so just makes it that much harder. I almost listed my three bedroom house, my cars, etc that I have... but those things do not help you get laid. I work because it rewards me in the way that I value the most. But if you’re listing something like “I’m a millionaire and women don’t like me” well the problem is that you’re still stuck in the blue pill mindset that women care about beta provider traits at all.

                    [–]HerefortheTuna 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                    Yup. I have too many options these days. Even my ex gf of three years is chasing me now that She sees im having fun with new girls. She “accidentally” saw my public Snapchat even though I don’t follow her back. But I’ve got with 6 new girls so far this year.

                    I always intuitively understood spinning plates before but having the experience of a 3 year relationship I know how to hang out with a girl and be at ease so it makes it almost too easy.

                    I don’t doubt if I hadn’t found this sub and the manosphere right before my relationshit ended that I would still be crying over my oneitis.

                    It's really strange, lately I hear a lot of people I surround myself with whether it's at school, work, or just random people I chat with at a bar talking about having some kind of new spiritual awareness..

                    And I don't mean that in some loosy goosy "bro I took shrooms!" kind of way. I notice a lot of my friends (men and women) seeing how fucked up and backward feminism has become. How drug addiction is wiping out our communities. How the world is almost appearing to be satanic and tipping toward some kind of anarchistic lawlessness.

                    I personally feel a looming spiritual dread of some kind in the air. Like society is degenerating and we're all becoming stupider-probably related to the bombardment of information from screens every day.

                    The girl always leaves. They have a sea of options of high quality men to pick from.

                    This only means your boys are low quality men and the girls are not attracted to them. In the end it's even good for the men as it gives them the chance to put the work in and get a girl that is attracted.

                    We are so fucked boys.

                    No, we are not. Not if you're lifting, gaming, upping your SMV, status etc.

                    I think the beautiful way to flip the situation upside down is to ignore women. This works like a fucking charm. You'll get unwanted attention and realize why women are the way they are once you ignore them. Strange law of human nature

                    We ain’t turning it around man, unfortunately. These are large scale historical forces unfolding in front of us. It would be like trying to reverse the drift of tectonic plates.

                    I wouldn’t say the alternative tho is to enjoy the decline. As I see it, there are two options.

                    If you’re religious, grow closer to God and use that as a wellspring to develop yourself.

                    Otherwise, plunge yourself into a radical drive for superiority and success. We parrot the “become the strongest version of yourself”, and that’s absolutely true. But it has to become a ruthless obsession. Bloodthirsty for self actualization.

                    Because when shit hits the fan, people will crave leaders and powerful men who can help re forge order, or god forbid, fend off invasion. The 21st century will be dangerous. Anyone saying “enjoy the decline” has not absorbed that fact.

                    Essentially the slow meltdown of the West’s entire institutional edifice has spurred a sense of urgency in me, and should in you, regardless of religious stance. “Enjoying the decline” is a blind strategy it seems to me.

                      "Grow closer to God" is always "grow closer to what the priest's desires are", or, if you are the priest, "the voice in my head is god, therefore all must listen to me". That's some seriously weak shit - obey a man who thinks he's better than you, because someone says with no evidence, that they're god or an agent of god.

                      What decline?

                      You think things were good a hundred years ago, when women were boring, prudish, and you had to stick with one forever?

                      Women are a lot sexier today, and easier to get in bed with. Thank goodness for that. Wake up to the bullshit of marriage and alimony, but don't hate women for playing the game of "find the best suitor, while getting some on the side". Simply recognize it, and dodge accordingly.

                      Or embrace it with her, hopefully honestly, and get some on the side yourself, because having the same sexual partner for fifty years is akin to drinking Diet Pepsi every fucking day.

                      (And we do the same shit, when we have the opportunity to. Look at Bill Cosby. Has a wife of fifty years, but god knows how many side' women.)

                      If you want to raise a traditional family then you're pretty much fucked in the current climate.

                      Then there's moral degeneration, political decadence, consumerism, addiction to instant gratification, cultural decay (just look at your average music video).

                      You can't say there's no decline just because getting casual sex is easy now. That's but a miniscule positive in a sea of negatives. There's definitely a decline.

                      [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                      There was always moral degradation, political decadence, consumerism, addiction to instant gratification, and cultural decay. Socrates said, 2500 years ago: "The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise." Alcoholism and opium addicts were real things back then. The Odyssey talks about sailors getting addicted to drugs, and ruining unit cohesion. The town drunk is about as old as a trope as civilization itself.

                      Whether or not your family is disciplined and hardy to life ruining shit is a matter of partially how they're raised, and partially whether or not they're mentally ill.

                      Besides, morally, I think we're doing okay. In the western world, most of us don't kill people for minor slights. Many people are taught to treat each other with dignity - the idea of all humans being equal, not "my tribe is superior to yours and you deserve less". We don't crucify, we don't (well, we almost don't) torture, and people are supposed to (ideally, certainly not always) get fair trials.

                      We live a life so far from violence, that even routine animal slaughter now makes people a bit squeamish. That's amazing. Maybe we should be a bit more hardy to that, but these are good times. Every one of you, or almost every one of you, is well fed. There are life saving medications, antibiotics, people don't die from nonstop shitting themselves Montezuma's Revenge style.

                      For every awful trashy music video, there's many beautiful videos and songs out there.

                      I'd say we're doing okay.

                      The decline is that of western society. Our feminist-infested culture now does not produce enough children to perpetuate itself, and it's unlikely we can ever turn it around before other, more patriarchal and more reproducing cultures, take over.

                      It's definitely not a good idea to open up and embrace your feminine side to a woman.

                      Women want to be the woman in the relationship. If you're the one that's crying and in need of comforting and emotional support, where does that leave her? Feeling lost and floundering. In addition it's like a kill switch instantly destroying all sexual attraction. You're not acting like a man any more, so she's not attracted to you like one any more.

                      It's a difficult lesson to learn, but there it is: Women say they like something, because intellectually they would like to like it. They would love to think of themselves as being attracted to kindness, intelligence and gentleness - because that suggests they are kind, gentle people themselves. And what woman wouldn't want to think that of herself? But in truth they are attracted to strength and dominance - the alpha male traits. However they don't like to admit that aspect of themselves because they find it a little bit animalistic and degrading.

                      Any weakness you reveal will be used against you later. Not particularly on purpose (Although some are merciless and calculating enough to do that) but in that it will forever after factor into her estimation of you, to your detriment. Instead of admiring you for opening up, she will secretly think less of you or even despise you for your weakness.

                      Don't show her your feminine side, instead show your masculine side. Let her be the woman in the relationship. You'll both be happier. And the sex will be better.

                        I'm pretty much the opposite. I don't cry much, not for decades at a time.

                        The last time I cried was for one of my employees. He was a young guy in his 20's who was separated from his wife. He'd been a live-in manager of a pub with his wife but she met another man and left...so he lost his wife and his job and his home at the same time (Because the owners wanted a married couple to manage the pub.)

                        So now he was working for me in my liquor shop. Not long after he started he came to work upset because his wife (They were still married) was teaching his son to call the new guy "dad" and him "Uncle xxxx".

                        Then he started complaining of headaches. A few days later he collapsed at work and was rushed to hospital. I went to visit him, he was lying unconscious on the bed. I talked to him for a while anyway. The doctors said he was scheduled for an operation on Monday. When I walked out of the hospital I started crying. People stared at me - they weren't being rude; just horrified.

                        He died before the operation without regaining consciousness. I went to his funeral and saw his wife who was chattering gaily to everyone else and was dressed to the nines. She appeared happy.

                        That was the last time I cried. More than 20 years ago now.

                        You think this is all-encompassing? This applies to EVERY relationship? Dude cries in front of her once and the damage to how she views him is irreversible? I got married for the first (and last) time last summer. I've cried in front of her a couple times about some sensitive things we were dealing with at the time. It wasn't lose-my-shit, balls-out slobber crying but there were tears. I would like to think I'm above average when it comes to intuition, overall awareness, and reading people and situations...but I don't know if I necessarily subscribe to this "alpha/beta" belief system. Not entirely anyway. I can realize the shit people haven't realized about themselves before they do. I've watched. I've listened. I've gathered my own experience. I'm still looking for answers to a lot of questions though. I'm not the alpha. My wife has dated them before me. I'm not the beta either. My wife has dated women also. I've asked her, from a completely secure place, where she would say I fall on that spectrum. She said smack-dab in the middle. "You allow yourself to feel things. But you also do man things and act like a man." Like I told her, I know there are attributes, qualities, physical traits.. fuck, even a whole other GENDER that she does/would/could/has found attractive in an SO, fuck buddy, or some meaningless casual thing. And of all those things, there are probably quite a few that I either can't be or don't want to be.

                        I guess what I'm saying is how would apply your line of thinking in this whole subject of men, women, and relationships to a specific situation? In this case, mine. You and I are strangers but the fact still stands that you believe this is how seemingly everyone operates and my wife and I are part of the "everyone" in your rationale, so it should apply to us too.

                        I'm not bragging about anything here. Not me, not my wife, not marriage, not my dog's shiny undercoat. I'm trying to learn where all of this comes from and what role I'm playing in it. Take what you will from all that, answer what you feel like answering, and thanks for the perspective

                        I do think it's all encompassing, and I do think it applies to every relationship. Sometimes the effects may take a while to become visible.

                        However this is just my opinion, it's always possible I am mistaken. As one married guy to another, I wish you the best.

                        And thanks for your input, it's always nice to get more perspective. The more we know, the more we can learn.

                        Well shit, if that is the nature of my soon-to-be reality, I'll be forced to "man up" on a level not previously known to me. I hope it doesn't come to that for that reason, but if it does, I'll walk that path. I came into this shit alone and I'm leaving it the same way.

                        For me decades ago I cried after I was cheated on by my fiance (And asked to help bring up the baby!) I never fully trusted a woman again. I never cried about one again either because I never let anyone affect me that deeply. I do believe in AWALT (All Women Are Like That)

                        It should have signed the end when you found out she was cheating not when she found out that you cryed because of it. You know, you should have been the one having boundarys where she cheats and not her to have boundarys where you cry.

                        [–]TheDevilsAdvokaat[🍰] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

                        I've been through this too. When I found out someone was cheating on me I was heart broken. She also told me I had "never done anything to prove I really loved her" and that I could do this by helping her to bring up this baby, that was not mine.

                        Within a couple of days she got influenza, coughed incessantly and had a miscarriage. I then told her we were breaking up. She refused to leave the apartment (That was in my name and I was paying for) so I left her there and moved out.

                        Decades later she is an unmarried mother of two to several other guys and not doing very well.

                        Once someone cheats on you I don't think there's any going back. After that experience I never fully trusted a woman again.

                        To be fair she'd already signed it and put her own head in the noose. Any cheating should result in an immediate end to the relationship. Anything else is just being a cuck.

                        Lmao I remember when I told my wife it wasn’t okay to be fat. The look on her face was just epic. She’s not overweight or disgusting and she wasn’t when I said it but I said no, that’s exactly what I meant. If a man or woman thinks they can get married and then stop taking care of themselves physically, emotionally and intellectually then they deserve every bit of what they get. If you lift weights, read books and practice emotional intelligence you don’t deserve a fat uneducated cow holding you down with her average life style choices.

                        Yeah, my wife has been hitting the gym hard as hell. She goes about 3-4 times a week and tells me when we have kids she wants to be my milf. Those obviously weren’t the first words out of her mouth. There was resistance like “my girl friends’ husbands would never say that” and I said that’s why their wives are fat.

                        After a few months of her working out I told her there’s three reasons why I wanted her to work out. I said first, you were always stressed out and now you’re way more relaxed and sex is very frequent. Two, your less likely to get heart related diseases and cancer. Three, you feel better about your body now than you did before I said anything. The irony is how much better my wife’s life is because I told her she was putting on weight and needs to hit the gym.

                        Man, I tell my live in girlfriend this but it has negative consequences. Like "you don't love me for who I am". When she's eating something unhealthy and I say maybe you shouldn't eat that because you're trying to loose weight, she flips it on me and says you don't think I know it's unhealthy (and she still eats it). I do love her but her attitude is putting a big wedge between.

                        Well honestly take a good look at yourself and your actions. If you’re not worth losing then you’re girlfriend will shape up. If she thinks she’s going to lose you then she’ll change her tune. I was lucky to have been mostly alpha during our relationship so she learned early on not to screw with me because she knew from the past that I wouldn’t put up with it. You’ll have to work a system out to where she respects you. I know me personally, if I had a fat girlfriend, I’d drop her ass without even a thought. It’s your business what you like but I think a man should have a fit woman.

                        indeed, I invented half of the sidebar years before I heard about reddit. I must admit though, that all the knowledge and skills disappear as soon as due to various circumstances, including logistics, the last plate disappears. Pay some people (like in truman show) to ignore you, and you will break every alpha into whiny bitch. Ofc it's just my opinion. On the separate side, if some whiny beta by pure luck got 4 plates, he would not need the reading at all, as long as they (plates) wouldn't vanish due to random events

                        Women Think -- which is a societal terrorist movement has definitely penetrated through male think (masculinity) in the last 40 years. Men had it good for awhile, and so they stopped teaching their boys how to grow up into men. This is definitely a lost generation of grown boys who are clueless about women and life itself.

                        The more I talk with other men, the more I realize how it causes them to be depressive and repressive, in denial about it

                        It's not an easy thing to accept that you (and other men) are at fault for the current state of affairs of male life. Men just know something is wrong. They don't know what.

                        My dad tried to tell me when I was young. "Girls want a strong man, that fuck them hard! not a crybaby! man up" I dismissed him as old-man ramblings.

                        Just to have girls tell me, years after, "Sorry I like big, tall men"

                        I know, it sounds cliche, but listen to your fathers.

                        That just means you were ready, but guarantee there are others that aren't. They'll lash out in ways that you're not accustomed to. Especially hearing something like women aren't as special as society has made them to be.

                        If you feel the need to tell fine go do so, but be prepared for any consequences that follows.

                        Your friend just caught you at the right time. I wish someone would have told me about TRP but on the same token if someone did im not sure if i would have took it so well a few years ago. Most dudes are not ready to be unplugged. Some people cant and will refuse the idea because their beta programming is so ingrained in their head. Im sure out of the 250K subscribers maybe 20 - 30 K really understand and change their life style and adapt to the alpha mentality.

                        One thing I have noticed is ever since more people have subscribed there has been a ton of shitty posts in the last year. I think when I joined there was only 90 K people maybe 100k and every post was on point.

                        Women want everything, the moon, the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth. They want the tallest, strongest, most aggressive guy that will magically be super safe, understanding, caring, and monogamous no matter what they do. This has been now and forever and it is not inherently bad.

                        What is bad is the entitlement that has come from literal decades of telling women they can do no wrong and are in fact never wrong. This is why people past a certain age are basically a lost cause. They are too tapped into the matrix Neo, you can't save those men and you can't change those women. Casualties of a war they never knew they were in.

                        This entitlement has turned a want into an expectation. All women feel entitled to their ideal man, because they have been told since birth they are always right. If you shatter this reality you are an evil man, doing bad man things. A lecture all men grew tired of hearing while growing up.

                        But most women aren't stupid, they know prince charming died the minute they slapped on those work boots. This same intelligence makes them hold their hand, just because it's a stupid expectation doesn't mean she is going to give up on it, especially when each day it seem as that society is about to deliver on a silver platter. So of course when you sheeply ask of them what they want, this is how they respond. A want based in a reality known only to them as plausible.

                        Masculinity is fading from men and femininity from women, for a combination of reason, one of which is we have lost our torchbearers. I see it everyday, the women walk more proud then their weak willed boyfriends. You hear the cackles of "hen parties" at bars now more then the bellows of men laughing. Men cower while women walk around in charge of nothing.

                        Feminism has the core concept right, but their execution is flawed. They seek to delivery the masculinity that women seek, by making them become masculine. They do this because they themselves are not feminine. But as much as feminine women want a strong masculine presence they do not want the responsibility of entering that role, they are not built for that men are.

                        So it is not because you opened up to a women that she despises you, it is because you entered the feminine sphere before proving your masculinity. You must prove your masculinity because so many men before you have utterly failed to even attempt to. That is you burden, you do not cry about it, you do not bitch about it. You shoulder that shit with a fucking sly grin and a look that says "The minute we are alone with something to bend you over, my dick, your holes, as you scream deeper, harder faster"

                        Exactly 3 women, other then my mother, have every seen me cry, but never broken. Those 3 women are the same 3 women that constantly ring me up anytime billy beta #14 pisses them off, or wont just toss them up against a wall in passion, or whatever the dominance fantasy of the week is for them.

                        It is extremely powerful and seductive for a women to be "one of the few" to see that side of masculine man. They know they are on a completely different level then 99% of the women out there with him. But they respect and cherish that because it came but once in a lifetime and was but a flash in the pan among hundreds of thousands of masculine memories they have of that man.

                        Buck up boys. You are men and the smarter more civil gender. Women have sexuality and Men have strength. Men, for some reason cast away there strength and ALLOW women to dominate them with there sexuality. Stop being so dam susceptible to women's sexuality. And no I'm not saying go beat up a woman because you're stronger. It's kind of like owning a classic muscle car, you don't wanna rev that engine every chance you get, Just let your engine rumble to remind them it's there.

                        Pretty sure you're all gonna hate me for this but I'm gonna say it anyways. Get over it and move on. Breakups suck but you don't need therapy. You need some freedom and then try again. We are supposed to learn how to deal with rejection early on. Alot of times our parents fail us in this regard so we don't deal with it until we are young adults.

                        It gets better, period.

                        Always act like you have a better offer.

                        Of course it helps if you’re 6ft2 and have a beard and are muscular. Girls always say they want a boy with a pretty face. But height, beard and physique is catnip to them. White, blonde, blue eyed with totally trampy hair works well too. It’s not what they say they want, but it’s what their actions dictate they want.

                        Oh and be a prick. They don’t know why they love them, but they do.

                        Don’t pander to pussy. Pussy dries up if you pander to it.

                        I was a simp until I swallowed TRP and I realised I actually had Chad characteristics, just way to beta-simp actions. I quit acting like I wanted pussy, I got hench, grew out my hair and beard, started being dismissive, did what I wanted.

                        Chicks love that shit.

                        You think Clark Gable and Gregory Peck ever told women how wonderful and equal they are, how powerful and independent they are? Fuck no. They were men. They did man things and chicks opened their pussy for a sweet sweet taste of Man.

                        And what did Rhett do at the end of Gone with the Wind? He fucking walked out, because no woman is worth it.

                        Robert Palmer was TRP as well. A man. He sang man songs. In the 80s millions of women wet themselves for him. He got 6 hot women to pretend to the band in a video about how a man overpowers a woman in sex. Telling the woman this is what she wants, because it’s true. Red Pill.

                        That number includes all the accounts that are shadow banned, perm banned, lost interest, lost password, troll accounts, throwaways just to make a comment, etc. It is NOT ACTIVE USERS.

                        The real number to look at is "swallowing the red pill now", which is 0.62% of total "unplugged", and suggests the active population is closer to 30k-50k.

                        I know this is going to sound boring, but start investing. #1 LEARN A TECHNICAL TRADE(education of some kind) AND BECOME A MASTER AT IT. Then invest your paychecks: I mean stocks (5% of each paycheck), 401k (at least 3% of each paycheck), Crypto currencies (2-3% of each paycheck) and shovel at least 10% away into a savings/cash every month. That leaves you 80% left of your paycheck to live on. STAY SINGLE AND DONT GIVE AWAY RENT MONEY TO RANDOM IDIOTS. BE GREEDY NOW.

                        If you do this and keep your head down I promise you'll have more money than you know what to do with by the time you are 30-35. Ironically that will also be the peak value of your life as a man like a 20 year old girl is in value. Women will FLOCK to you at that point. (I'm in that area now in my early 30's) I've got decent cash and a good paycheck and i've worked out for 4 years straight and I've been with >20 women in the last 6 months. (not bragging at all, just saying this is what you have to do and I'm living proof that it works)

                        I can only tell you my strategy: 3% tech stocks, 3% energy stocks, 2% bonds, 2% crypto, 6% 401k retirement plus work matchings to 401k and about 5-10% into another savings account that I never touch only in an emergency or for long term planning like a home down payment.

                        Also buy a house. Never rent, it pisses money away. Never rent anything always own if possible. Rent seeking is the biggest scam on earth.

                        Also give to a charity where you know it helps very unfortunate people. It will ground you in humility and give you a huge boost internally that probably has medical value honestly. Plus it feels good to help people

                        I was jobless and hopeless before I gave this sub a chance. Now I'm doing fine. Thank you guys.

                        Being open about weaknesses is not necessarily bad. What can be bad is the delivery (crying) or constantly talking about it. Just factually stating you are afraid of (spiders, the dark, your presentation before the bosses,...) won't really hurt much. But if you go on a bout it and have some kind of break-down, well that is a completely different scenario.

                        I enjoy that more people are finding "light" or knowledge or whatever they're looking for.

                        It also means this sub is nothing like it was 3 years ago. Increasing the mods seems to be helping, but I can't help but feel the larger audience is forcing this sub down the shitter. I guess that's the price that comes from a larger audience.

                        Don't think for a minute that all 250,000 people here have taken or are in the process of taking, TRP. The BP/SJW crowd is well represented here, even if they are mostly silent.

                        Similarly, there are plenty of believers in the atheism subreddit; plenty of liberals in conservative subreddits, etc., etc.

                        That’s really not much. The Green Bay packers sub has almost as many and the Twoxchromosomes has over a million

                        This is a result of now two generation of men growing up kept away from their fathers, and the anger and resentment of attention lost is palpable.

                        Yes, I think the internet is necessary for men. Most men in public are too afraid to call out sexism and love being white knights. So men naturally needed the internet to have enough courage to discuss their ideas that they are too afraid to discuss in person.

                        It's too bad is not 250 million

                        We want to be this way, but her instincts, her biology, simply don't allow it. It's simply being beta

                        There, fixed it for you.
