I've been lurking for awhile now, read all the sidebar and intro stuff and I still don't really get how exactly you can "win" as a dude in relationships.
I get that women want to fuck alphas when they're younger and when they get older and are getting close to the wall they want beta bux to settle down with and give them security. But then they'll always be considering monkeybranching/cheating with alphas if they get the opportunity because they're just settling for the beta.
So how the actual fuck do you as a male who wants LTRs and doesn't want to have casual sex "succeed" and not end up a beta bux? dark triad traits are not long term healthy relationship traits, they're just traits for fucking sluts. Well I don't want that, I want a relationship down the line with a non-slut, but at the end of the day every girl's been with at least a couple of assholes, even "good girls" and she's going to want to get with a "nice guy" that "treats her better than the assholes" aka she wants a beta.
Most of TRP makes sense to me but at the end of the day it seems to only help out narcissist dudes who just want to nut, not anybody that actually wants a relationship because I can't see a way to NOT be cucked if no matter how great of a man I am, the simple fact that I'm attainable and not mysterious anymore to a girl i'm LTR'ing means I will always be less attractive than the AFs that pass on by.
Are men who want more than just sex basically doomed to be cucked or is there some fundamental misunderstanding I'm having here.
