Red Pill TheoryA Word For Those Back At College (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by nabosch

For many here school is back in session. For those who have been improving themselves all summer, it's a great time to look around and appreciate how far you've come as a man. There is no better place to turn and see the majority and minority of men in American culture.

Use it as an opportunity to see the vast majority of boys walking around dressing like women, no muscle mass, soy filled, testosterone lacking, body abusing nice guys that will do whatever a woman will ask in order for a shot at a mouth on their cock. At the same time use it as an opportunity to see the vast minority of winners out there. Young men putting themselves first in the gym, with school work, with career ambitions, with women. They aren't as easily spotted around campus but they're there. Hopefully, you're one of them.

Take the first few weeks to establish yourself from the pack of boys and display your manhood. Hit the gym, hit the books, hit on the cutie in the library, hit that hot ass from the bar on Friday night. Walk with confidence, straight back and chest high. Dress like a man, good shoes, slim pants, v-neck undershirts under button downs or polos. Be active in class, realize your investment of education and the fact your ROI is completely up to you. Look women in the eye when walking past, chew gum with a smirk, show off a little. But above all carry yourself with unapologetic manhood in all situations. Have fun, enjoy your time in school.

I always thought the red pill was a bunch of cunts calling themselves alpha and circlejerking on reddit. This is legit the best advise ive seen for young folk.

Focus on your body, your mind and your soul and you'll get what you want out of life.

Great sentiment, bravo.

[–]Hoops_Junkie2 76 points77 points  (2 children)

Nah that's just blue pill propaganda that hates the red pill. The goal of this subreddit is to improve as men and conquer women in the process

[–]Dystaxia 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I mean it is unabashedly about picking up women but it just so happens that the best way to do so is to be the best man you can be. Transferable lessons are the best lessons.

[–]hawkeaglejesus 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Saw this in a comment on here a few days ago.

Don't chase butterfies, fix your garden and they'll come to you.

[–]Johndoesmith67 37 points38 points  (2 children)

DO NOT link up all willly nilly with the first hot blonde trying to have a boyfriend. Just please don't. It is sad watching your friend kill it with you at the bar and get laid each weekend every fucking waking hour then disappear and become a whipped bitch before thanksgiving break even gets here....

I could go ON, but that's the main thing.

[–]Eloni 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Great advice. I've stepped straight into that trap 4 times, lol. The last one was and is worth it, but the other 3 were mostly wasted time and potential.

[–]Johndoesmith67 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a time to "fuck up". Do stupid shit, work multiple jobs to see what you like. That unexcused mistake making time from 18 to 23 never comes back. Be focused, and stay fit, but also have fun and fuk alot. Be young dumb and full of cum.

[–]Eksfrom505 69 points70 points  (88 children)

If you don't mind me asking what are some simple tips for a 15 year old sophomore. I just started to improve myself.

[–][deleted] 165 points166 points  (17 children)

  1. Lift
  2. Pick up a sport, any sport.
  3. Talk to everyone. Learn the art of chit chat. Talk to every girl, and every guy. Students, teachers, everyone.

[–]WISE_TURD 162 points163 points  (1 child)

  1. Keep your grades up and go to a good college.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Add: manage your money correctly, make enough sacrifices, and choose a worthwhile degree and you won't come out of college an entitled welfare recipient demanding free health care, higher taxes on rich people, etc.

[–]MadDoe 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Would like to add to this, being this young you will be job hunting most likely at 16. Nothing is more important than choosing a job that interacts constantly with people like a cashier. This has helped me introduce myself to many people and have no issue starting conversations.

[–]Eksfrom505 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I'm already working at a restaurant as a busser.

[–]MadDoe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wow nice. Good start. Wish I had me a job that young.

[–]ek1995 19 points20 points  (4 children)

I would strongly recommend boxing or muay thai. I miss the feeling of sparring, something about it was just so "engaging," if you will.

[–]lopsidedlucky 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Not any sport. Avoid badminton if you're trying to score top tier pussy.

[–]modaman25 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Banged HB8 off beach badminton one time with the opening line "How good can you tap shuttlecock?" followed by a wink. Invited her female friend over to a boys vs girls match and we both ended up getting laid later that night.

[–]VenusHypergamy 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You dog. I think I'll be using that line in the future, no context

[–]JungleBeast423 6 points7 points  (0 children)

In rearguards to picking up a sport, do wrestling. Wrestling is something I look back on and wish I did. It'll build so much toughness and mental strength. If you're in America, high school wrestling programs are at a pretty high level compared to other youth martial arts programs and aren't available to adults like they are to high school kids. Definitely a good idea.

[–]JeeReG 47 points48 points  (14 children)

Girls love success. Get good grades and lift. If you speak well and look good, life will come easy.

[–]TheJedi_Lied 22 points23 points  (7 children)

On top of other advice: Didn't see learn to play music or martial arts on the list. I found those things as an adult, if you devote yourself to an instrument now I guarantee it will get you laid at least three times in your life, and I only say three in case you're hideous. Same with martial arts. Also, if you aren't interested in STEM consider a trade. Gets a bad stigma but definitely a great option. You can go really far if you're smart.

[–]nabosch[S] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I agree, learn an instrument. Preferably one that you can play in a bar band. Social proof beyond comparison when you're killing it on stage at a packed bar on a Saturday night.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What if you just learned to play one song really well.

[–]Eksfrom505 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I'm going to start boxing classes and I'll say I'm a 7/10 on looks. But I'll maybe do MMA or Karate. What do you recommend?

[–]Throwawaters 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't do karate, go for boxing, kickboxing, mma, muay thai or bjj. You need full contact sparring as a man

[–]TheJedi_Lied 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I like bjj. Boxing is great. Find what you like. I've done mma, it's fun but I prefer bjj.

[–]indivisibleremainder 76 points77 points  (16 children)

lift

dont fall in love

focus on your studies

have a good social life but dont get into drinking/smoking/drugs

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Would have to agree 110% on the drugs/drinking. Focus on growth.

[–]acetylcysteine 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Some of the best memories of university come from a combination of those things. Plenty of people can partake in those activities and still be successful. Just don't make it a habit. A lot of university is networking and selling yourself, so get out there and socialize

[–]indivisibleremainder 7 points8 points  (0 children)

hes a high school sophomore

[–]youkickmyd0g 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I left university with an amazing brand. I socialized a lot, but not with the winners, necessarily... I couldn't tell the difference. I was a winner, continue to be, or so I like to think. Some of the losers hijaked my brand and social circle. I'd say get social enough to be comfortable with the difference, ie. check yoself before your wreck yoself fool. They hijacked it by taking the winning parts of me, and then spreading fake dirt and pushing my buttons at inopportune times (still my fault for reacting obviously, but if people respect you they don't trip you).

[–]newguyvan 1 point2 points  (10 children)

i mean i think its cool to explore some drugs like molly or lsd but just don't make a habit out of it.

[–]saucemytots -5 points-4 points  (9 children)

Weed and alcohol but only in moderation

[–][deleted]  (8 children)

[deleted]

    [–]JungleBeast423 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Those can be potentially damaging to a 15 year old who's brain is still developing though. Might want to save those for later...

    [–]CaspatheGhosty 3 points4 points  (5 children)

    It's useless trying to convert people over to psychedelics imo. Most have little to no idea what it does and almost everyone I've talked to about it think its dangerous and can kill.

    [–]according_to_all_kno 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    as someone that used to use psychedelics heavily, it's definitely not for everyone. they definitely had me in a fucked up mental state for a long time

    [–]CaspatheGhosty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Oh definitely especially higher doses. I wouldn't doubt someone going insane on 600+ ugs if they're not ready for it.

    [–][deleted]  (1 child)

    [deleted]

      [–]according_to_all_kno 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      yeah. definitely learned that one the hard way. I'll still do it maybe once a year but I've definitely learned to respect it

      [–]nabosch[S] 17 points18 points  (4 children)

      Culture yourself. Follow some red pill twitter accounts do you're looking at something useful instead of retarded memes like all the other 15 year olds. Follow good informational subreddits of things you enjoy. Pick up a hobby.

      [–]0ctaviusRex 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      I'm jelous of you. Wish I found this sub back when I was 15. You are going to live life to the fullest when you are mature

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      at what age did you discover it? and what would you do differently if you found it at 15

      [–]1theoctopuss 20 points21 points  (9 children)

      The biggest thing in highschool is sports. If you're into nerdy shit like chess or something, don't join any clubs like that. Go to parties, but don't ever overindulge. Become friends with whomever is the most popular kid. Make damn sure you get good enough grades to get into a good college, you may think there's time for that later but there really isn't. Always dress well, not button down shirts or anything but make sure that your clothes match and fit. Lift as much as possible, but since you're still growing you want to stay natty. On the final note, never make a fool of yourself. Be stoic, calm, and never lose frame.

      [–]goldfarmer 50 points51 points  (0 children)

      I strongly disagree with don't do nerdy shit like join chess club or computer science club. Absolutely do that shit but also do the other manlier "macho" shit.

      You should pursure your own interests as well. Life isn't only about banging plates. If you like geeky shit absolutely pursue it just don't make it an obssession.

      [–]Eksfrom505 2 points3 points  (7 children)

      What do you mean by never losing frame?

      [–][deleted]  (6 children)

      [deleted]

        [–]Eksfrom505 4 points5 points  (3 children)

        so frame is how much you can handle yourself?

        [–]JeeReG 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        You won't find a good answer in this thread. Sort this sub by all time and you'll find some good info.

        [–]lopsidedlucky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Frame is the level of respect and boundaries you have for yourself, how you generally handle yourself and the type of person you present yourself to be (or better yet actually are).

        A strong frame is scene as stoic like a rock in the face of adversity among other things. It's fine to ask questions but the fact that you asked this one means you need to read the sidebar, all of it, now.

        [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        thats the worst thing ive ever heard.

        [–]jooseygoosey 2 points3 points  (9 children)

        All the other advice + buy at least 1k of Bitcoin and 1k worth of Ethereum. Revisit the value of it in 5 years.

        [–]Bingbongfly 5 points6 points  (8 children)

        This is poor advice. As a young student you shouldn't put your money in highly risky assets, better to invest in yourself.

        [–]jooseygoosey 2 points3 points  (7 children)

        Bitcoin and Ethereum are not risky assets. Don't buy into the FUD.

        What is risky is taking on enormous debt, for some shitty degree, to earn fiat (ex: USD) that is rapidly devaluing due to Federal Reserve printing money.

        USD lost half its purchasing power in just 10 years.

        It's very possible that you can turn 1k today into 10k-20k within 3-5 years. Your downside risk is capped at 1k.

        I'm a developer of Solidity on Ethereum and been using BTC/ETH for years. Buying into the 'stock' at a combined market cap of 100B today will look like the best investment opportunity in hindsight when it's starts pushing 400B - 600B market cap.

        Facebook, Apple, etc are valued all at 1T. Global crypto market by 2027 is forecasted by Deloitte and other's to be 10% of World GDP (around 10T).

        If he is getting a medical degree or something equally high paying, then great. If it's some arts or humanities degree, then good luck with that.

        You can reference this post in a years time and you will see I am more than right about the outcome.

        Don't have 1k? Then what about $100? $20? Don't be ignorant and not act.

        [–]Bingbongfly 0 points1 point  (6 children)

        If you look through my account you can see I've been active in the space for a while. I bought most of my ETH around 1-10$ range, and most of my BTC around 200-400$, now I'm a seller. These assets have made me richer beyond my imagination, but I invested when I was literally a kid without any bills to pay. My risk tolerance was huge. A college students risk is not.

        I'll be getting a degree, but it's free in my country, I agree that it's stupid to pay for.

        Nonetheless, it was a risky investment at 10$ and still is today, I would never advise anyone to invest more then 1-3% of their total investments in these currencies, and I doubt a young student is that rich.

        You saying these assets are "not risky" shows how little you know about investing. These assets have huge volatility and haven't been around for more then a few years. They are risky. Sure they might still be a good investment, but saying they don't have high risk is just plain stupid.

        Good luck

        [–]jooseygoosey 0 points1 point  (4 children)

        You caught me with "no risk".

        I'm so conservative that I prefer real estate and bonds. And 1-2% in Crypto.

        [–]Bingbongfly 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        Great, im still young enough that I don't really have any bills and thus my risk tolerance is a bit higher, I've been exposed with up to 20% in crypto but going under 10% soon. Just wish I had the age to start diversifying into real estate and such.

        [–]jooseygoosey 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        Can never be young enough. Do lowest % down and get a nice triplex/fourplex. You will be laughing

        [–]Bingbongfly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        It's not legal for me to own property in my country until 18 so yes I can be young enough.. I don't really trust any other person to buy it for me either so I have to wait unfortunately.

        [–]jooseygoosey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Ok, fair enough. But the moment you turn 18 is the moment you cannot use that excuse.

        So be prepared that when you hit 18, you have the downpayment and credit to be able to make offer on the next triplex/fourplex that hits the market that meets your criteria and cashflow target

        [–]practicepricipleprep 87 points88 points  (44 children)

        This was a solid post. Two points/question:

        1- Paragraphs are your friend.

        2- What are your thoughts on joining a fraternity ?

        [–]1grogbottle 139 points140 points  (21 children)

        • Good way to meet people
        • Good way to meet shit people
        • Good way to meet shit people who are rich as fuck
        • Great way to meet rich, driven, intelligent, future successful people

        Keep yourself RP-ed up to the gills and don't let the beer get in the way of your grades. Make friends with everyone.

        [–]wheel_ 34 points35 points  (17 children)

        This. It could be the rise to the top or your own demise. It's all up to you.

        [–]lopsidedlucky 19 points20 points  (16 children)

        Chill on the cliche dramatic prose bro. The aspies here will upvote you but it's a feminine habit you need to break.

        [–]RedPistola 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        He's got a point in the sense that joining a fraternity can be a great opportunity and launching pad for your social network, but also poses the very real threat of dragging down an undisciplined man with long beer-fueled nights and skipped workouts.

        [–]noPTSDformePlease 21 points22 points  (13 children)

        [–]HardworkITrust 55 points56 points  (10 children)

        As one of those guys that put the gym first and dresses like a man, holy fuck the stares I get from betas. They look at me with such envy and blank looks for 3-5 seconds at a time . Guys please don't be one of these guys.

        [–]MKSsystem 17 points18 points  (0 children)

        The funny thing is that they can do it too, but they don't

        [–]IntenseCuddling 5 points6 points  (8 children)

        What exactly do you mean by "dresses like a man"? My fashion sense is rather lacking.

        [–]potato-stache 5 points6 points  (1 child)

        Google 'dress like a boy vs man', you will get plenty of good articles about it.

        [–]IntenseCuddling 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        The internet isn't particularly helpful. All guides to fashion seem to be geared away from my body type. If nothing fits me before I visit a tailor how am I supposed to pick up a decent style befitting a man without being richer than I am at the moment?

        [–]HardworkITrust 6 points7 points  (2 children)

        I wear a nice fitting polo which is tight around the arms and tuck it into my causal straight fit jeans(no cuts or overly tight), exposing my all black belt and lack of waistline. You don't see many males tucking in their shirt anymore which is bs it can make you look much more mature and dominant. Furthermore I have on black causal shoes with matching black socks. Other then that I have a small gold and black watch and wear a chain under my polo (not visible) I'm not going to school to flex something as petty as jewelry. That's about it. Your physique makes the outfit look good along side walking with good posture and head up. If I was 30 pounds overweight or have skinny twig arms it wouldn't look good but still a step above skinny jean hipster wear.

        [–]SovereignSoul76 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Never underestimate the power of a snug black or grey T-shirt, and a pair of jeans or khakis.

        [–]IntenseCuddling 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        No jeans fit me. Either they fit my thighs or they fit my waist but never both, and neither remotely fit my calves. I can find a decent button down but if my lower half looks as though I'm dressed like a clown I'm not sure that it works.

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        Cargo shorts and sneakers with graphic t shirt and lanyard = boy

        Nice jeans, loafers, button down that fits or a nice shirt = man

        [–]IntenseCuddling 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        [–]Ass-a-holic 8 points9 points  (1 child)

        This hasn't been mentioned but find a way to record every intimate moment with a girl, too many false accusations not too. they could ruin your life with one feeling of regret, maybe not even until months later.

        Also wrap it up, she is most likely riding the CC hard so ur not the only dick she is using.

        [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        One advice to younger me would be:

        JUST FUCK THEM.

        literally. I was a pussy back then, had many girls interested but I always found a way to evade them. Its easier being older and earning mooneys now, but back then I was surrounded by pussy. Would practically trip over it. I only needed to put my dick out.

        But I was virgin and scared of first time, thought it was late and weird. When I finally did it I owned it. All those years in tears and worry were for nothing.

        I did a lot of approaching tho, just when I had chances with girl I sabotaged it out of aforementioned fear. People make it a big deal and there is big online stigma for it, honestly it couldnt be simpler and like ppl say, its not space shattering event. But fairly close. hahahahaa. If any of former mes are reading, you guys just keep your hygiene in check and follow your instincts. light weight.

        [–]bitcoin1188 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        This should be top comment. Just fuck them, its actually what they want. Hit the weights, stop watching porn and make a move then fuck her. It is easier than u are making it. Dont love her, don't try to be too cute and funny. Just have fun and fuck. I could have fucked this smoking hot mexican chick that moved to Cali, she was into me, we texted, talked. I brought her to my place and fucking played piano for her like a giant pussy when all i had to do waa start making out with her,start feeling her great tits, start feeling her ass, first outside her jeans then inside, touch her pussy from the back then its over. She's moist af and ready. I could have fucked her many times and came all over her tits ass and face but i was a pussy that didnt lift, watched porn, ate too many carbs and didnt get enough sun.

        [–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (3 children)

        I'm on campus as a 45 y/o professional.

        Work pays for the math class. I pay student loans without interest, and learn about stochastic processes, which feeds into my work. win/win/win.

        I pay for the phys ed class myself. 3 guys in the class, none in as good of shape as I am. Many, many females. Life is good.

        I get IOI's constantly. ~11% body fat, maybe less, barely visible love handles, totally visible abs-more of a 4 pack than a 6 pack, but doing better than most guys half my age.

        And in these days of man buns, high & tight #1 fade.

        I'm telling you guys, life is fucking good.

        And the OP is exactly on point......of course, I don't go for the button downs or polos. Tight v-neck t's work for me. Surprisingly well.

        [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        Button downs and polos look good but if you are built anything that shows that is good.

        [–]CallMeHaseo 35 points36 points  (5 children)

        Step 1 be attractive Step 2 don't be unattractive Step 3 nice guys finish last Step 4 it's truly frightening looking around at most guys on campus and seeing how lame most are my gosh... like who raised you...? 🤔

        [–]nabosch[S] 20 points21 points  (4 children)

        It's really not that hard to get to top 20%

        [–]Free_From_Reddit 19 points20 points  (0 children)

        Wear well-fitting clothes, be in decent shape, and be able to hold a conversation and you're instantly top 20% at least. There's almost no competition if you know what you're doing.

        Thanks, any motivation is welcome. I hadn't thought about the difference in myself between last semester and this semester. Good to see I've made some progress and that there's a lot more to come. Cheers.

        Soy is delicious though. Some good fried tofu is the shit.

            A standard v looks better with a button down. Are you referring to deep vs that DJs and douchebags wear or all v necks? Crew necks are for logo Ts.

              Yeah we aren't on the same page. You wouldn't catch me dead with a button down and a crew under it. I think it looks tacky, like a clueless 40 year old dad. Also you're leaving out the world of tailored suits, sweaters, blazers, etc.

              I'll rock logo Ts, but only ones that are city associated or musically related. I have a couple musical related tanks I wear at shows under a casual button down.

                Don't know what to tell you, works for me. My go to is the white Weeknd XO tank with a light blue jean button down, with slim black jeans, and casual white nikes (skate style). Outfit always gets compliments from all over the place. I'm into the grown up electronic scene (house, techno, the real shit) and this style outfit kills. Keep in mind the button down is not buttoned creating that extra casual look

                Fukin' Chad wrote this...or was it Kevin? I'm all for positive attitude and lifestyle. Just tone down the testosterone for goodness sake.
