Red Pill ExampleAskreddit: "What would you tell your high school self if you could go back in time" comments are a list of TRP tenets (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

Top comments:

I involve myself in every group and extra-curricular I can. I work out and try to become as fit as possible

  • Lift

Flirt with all the late bloomer girls. Even the super late bloomers that didn't peak until their mid twenties. Its never too early to start playing that long game.

  • Approach

Literally hit and quit my ex when she says she wants to get back together with me after a year. It wasn't worth it

  • Abundance mentality

-avoid the would be exes- waste of time and money -prioritize friendships that would last into my twenties

  • Take the pussy off the pedestal

I wouldn't talk to Megan. While it was 100% the happiest Ive ever been, she's completely ruined me

  • Avoid oneitis

Stay away from the terrible group of friends I associated myself with in high school

  • Remove betas from your life

I'd hit the gym and lift

Go out and get physical exercise from day 1

Study my ass off, work out

Workout harder and become fit

It's almost as if there was a pattern emerging.

The Red Pill is everywhere and the people reading this sub realize it.

What? This isn't TRP advice. No one said they would tell their younger self to hate women and to abuse and manipulate them. /s

[–]-SoItGoes 54 points55 points  (5 children)

You forgot hit them. Apparently I beat women all the time

[–]WardlyHasted 23 points23 points [recovered]

Hitting them gets lumped in with abuse. Just like raising your voice and having personal boundaries.

[–]RealRational 11 points12 points  (0 children)

having personal boundaries

lol, "how dare you grab her wrist!!!!" - to stop her from stabbing you in the eye with a fork! But they always leave that part out don't they.

The only abusing you should be doing to the girls in your life is abusing that pussy. I know it's corny but fuck it, it's true and deep down what they really want.

I totally down voted and prepared to launch into a tirade til I saw /u/drunknewb's comment about almost down voting til he saw the /s and then I looked and I saw the /s too and I up voted.

[–]H42 64 points64 points [recovered]

When I first started hitting on girls in 1971-75 High School, it was too easy. It just seemed like I was taking advantage of them, because it was so easy to make them smile, laugh, and respond by lightheartedly teasing them. It was like shooting fish in a barrel. This made me feel bad.

So I stopped doing and saying "manipulative" things and tried other methods, being nice, smart, caring, supportive, paying for everything. None of that worked to get a GF, even though everything I read said that was what girls wanted a boy to be. I kept on with that plan, because, how could the experts be wrong about something so important? I kept at it so long, I forgot how to do and be my original self, which worked so well.

I would go back and tell my HS self, don't feel bad, you got it right the first time, keep shooting the fish in the barrel.

[–]goefyou 19 points20 points  (11 children)

There's definitely something to the idea that many young boys figure out what works before society pushes them blue pill. The whole "He's just teasing you because he likes you" actually works until the boys are gradually shaped blue pill with punishments, lessons, and influences from mostly female grade school and high school teachers.

You've been shadow-banned by Reddits admins. FYI in case nobody replies to you. Recommend a new account.

[–]Kanyin 7 points7 points [recovered]

I see his comment there but not his past ones when clicking on his account. Do our comments show up through shadow-bans here?

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

No, they don't. We aren't special in the shadow ban department. You can only see this comment because I approved it.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Another subreddit's mods bitched to the reddit admins. That's usually how it happens. I tend to notice it happens more to people when they post disagreeable content in more popular/default subreddits. Most of our shadow-banned dudes crossed the all-powerful moderators at /r/twoxchromosomes by trying to logic with them, and end up with a shadow-ban.

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

Must ask: what's a shadow ban?

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (1 child)

It usually happens when a moderator of a prominent/default sub complains about you to the Reddit administrators. Rather than just outright ban your right to reddit, they basically lock you in a padded room and throw away the key.

You have no idea that they've done it to you; you have all the same posting access to every sub on reddit, but two significant things are happening:

first, nobody can see anything you post. On your computer screen, it looks like you made a post. However, nobody else can see it. It gets dumped into the mod list, and I have to manually approve your post. If I don't, nobody will read your post and nobody will know it exists.

People begin to notice this when none of their posts get upvoted/downvoted and remain at "1", and when nobody ever, ever, ever replies to them. If you want to see if you are shadow-banned, go over to 2XC and post a comment that says "women belong in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant". If it doesn't get down voted, you're shadow-banned.

second, if somebody clicks your username, instead of seeing your post history, all they see is "user not found".

So basically, you'r like Bruce Willis in the movie The Sixth Sense You've been dead for weeks but you don't even realize it.

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

Jesus, the conspiracy is real

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

That's me.

I was inherently a bad child (got into trouble, think dark triad in the making). Got suspended and realized nobody liked me because I was such a bully. I thought the problem was ME, so I avoided all human contact to stop hurting them -- but this drove me to depression.

But now I'm back.

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

Damn, you just described me. I look back at my HS self and think of what a waste it was that I was so "respectful" (read: beta) towards women. Thinking about it now I can see where I had a ton of opportunities then...letterman in football & baseball, ran for class president, started one of the more popular bands; girls were throwing themselves at me and I was fucking oblivious.

If I could go back, I'd kick my HS self's ass because he fucking deserved it.

[–]nomad-oz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I went to an all boys high school and had NFI about girls. I'm only 5'7" so never considered myself AMOG and let others lead. I had no idea of my SMV. Looks run in my family. Way back in the early 70's every weekend 3-4 girls would come knocking asking for my big bro. A few years back my nephew put his profile on RSVP a online dating site. He went to No.1 in the country. 200+ Women overnight. I look like this bloke except with jet black hair and green eyes.

At Uni I played intervarsity basketball, I had a 37in vertical jump and had groupies. I was in the student union as the publicity officer and organized the entertainment acts. Handed out flyers and chatted to everyone. Had a spot on local radio. In introduced acts like AC/DC Midnight Oil on stage. I had a high profile and was popular. Girls threw themselves at me averywhere.

Problem was they all wanted a LTR exclusive relationship. I dated girls who were attractive on the outside only. Princesses or Needy and jelous type. This was before the Hook-Up culture started. I knocked back so many offers for wild sex and stayed faithful. I stayed in LTR too long.

If I could go back, I'd tell my self to stay single and play the field. Yes you can get the 5'10" hotties. Bad girls are more fun and less hassle. The older women will fuck you silly teach you tricks. If you tell a girl she is only a plate at the start she will accep it. Never cut a mates lunch. Bros before hoes AWALT

[–]Drewtothesky 194 points194 points [recovered]

I'm in high school right now. Just swallowed the pill. Good to know I'm already doing some of these things.

[–]stevredpill 158 points159 points  (19 children)

You have no fucking idea how lucky you are to know this shit at that age.

I expect many FR's.

God Speed.

[–]TheDon835 18 points19 points  (17 children)

18 year old here, sometimes it's hard accepting TRP at 18. I feel like I can't really be fully alpha until I move out, and am 21.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I know what you mean exactly, but it's still a good thing to internalize and analyze as early as possible. Plus it helps with the relationships you already have.

[–]soThisIsHowItEnds 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Have you ever considered lying? Women do it all the fucking time. The people who control things in this world literally lie to our faces. I would not find you a bad person if you lied to get laid. Shits been happening since before history.

[–]TheDon835 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I get laid plenty, just hard to run plates when you live with your parents.

[–]Temptationn 6 points7 points  (2 children)

She stopped asking me after that, for some reason.

Seriously, In a IDGAF attitude tell her, with a massive shit eating grin.

I did exactly that from more or less 18, it started out with a whole lot of Chastising, now she just laughs.

[–]soThisIsHowItEnds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I suppose in 5-7 years when you're my age it'll become "sweet" and "caring" when your parent/s can't afford to support themselves and you live in their cozy ass house.

[–]O3EAN 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Another 18 yr old here, moved out a few weeks ago once I got a job. Already put on 2-3 kgs of muscle since starting my job and have saved up a few hundred bucks for a course to start an online ecommerce store. Trust me it gets better, just start looking for jobs whilst you're still in high school.

[–]TheDon835 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I've already graduated highschool, and have a great job.

[–]O3EAN 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Why can't you move out then? Is it too expensive where you live?

[–]TheDon835 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can't find roommates, can't afford solo.

[–]O3EAN 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah that sucks, oh well you'll save more money at home anyway, I just moved out cause I couldn't stand living with my mum anymore.

The deleted comment said

i began down the road at age 18. the theories weren't so fleshed out as they are now. it started with kind of a joke called "ladder theory," whereby it says that a woman will jump ladder to get to a higher social class whenever she could. this was in 2004, very few people knew about it and almost nobody talked about it. then i saw david deangelo's seminar(pirated it) where he said things that i didn't believe at first. it was all pure theory, he didn't teach application at all. then i read robin baker's sperm wars. it completely illuminated so many mysterious about women that i've encountered. it's shit they will never admit because it makes them seem so devious and selfish. they themselves probably don't even know why they act that way. tldr: 18 is actually kinda late but not too late. high school pussy is the easiest to get and that's why i say it's kinda late.

[–]MelodyMyst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is where "fake it til you make it" comes into play.

[–]Senior Contributorcocaine_face 0 points1 point  (0 children)

100% this.

Almost a decade of fucking ugly girls (rarely), racking up student debt and not being a baller in my career (I made progress, but not nearly as much as I've made in the past two years and got taken advantage of repeatedly).

You have absolutely no idea how lucky you are random high schooler. What I wouldn't give to be in your shoes.

[–]Drewtothesky 33 points33 points [recovered]

Honestly. I'm a freshmen. I've been lifting since 7th grade. But I've been a total beta with girls. It's insane how girls from around my age group and up act and do the same things. I.e shit tests etc.

[–]Turkerthelurker 63 points64 points  (18 children)

Funny thing is, at your age women are SO BAD at shit tests. Don't get me wrong, the majority of men are so unplugged that at any age the shit tests are pretty transparent.

But in high school? Bitch please. The shit tests are the bs pop quizzes where you just write your name down and turn it in for a free 100.

[–]Drewtothesky 7 points7 points [recovered]

This is true. Although I just got unplugged. I don't really know how to handle that well, except to not let my emotions control me. From all the FR I've read through these past couple days, i can spot them straight off the bat. But I have no clue what to say back or how to get past them.

[–]Turkerthelurker 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Agree and amplify is the easiest response if you feel the need to reply, although a lot of examples I see here come across as try-hard in real life. Often, directly answering the question at all is unnecessary.

(See the sidebar if any of the above was confusing)

To give an example:

A common shit test is for a girl to ask how many girls you've been with. I swear to god, EVERY girl has asked me this unless it was clear from the start it was a one night fling.

A basic bitch agree and amplify response would be: "All the women", "a thousand", "does buttsex count?" (Admittedly, I just chuckled to myself on that last one)

But a straightforward answer is not necessary at all! Remember women focus on how they feel, and words come second (this is human nature, but moreso for women). How you handle the question is 1000x more important than your words. Treat it like you've heard it plenty of times:

Simply furl your eyebrows, and seriously ask why it is important. Turn it back on her. And regardless of her response, say "in my experience, it doesn't matter either way. If its a lot you might be insecure, if it's a few, you might overthink the competition. It gets in your head regardless."

Even that ^ is more explanation than necessary, but if she keeps prodding (as my last plate did) this answer suffices without any further explanation.

Plus, it is 100% true. Regardless of the answer, she will be more comfortable not knowing the answer. And if you've presented yourself as being high value, she will assume the number is much higher than it probably is. Win win.

[–]Drewtothesky 4 points4 points [recovered]

Thank you so much! This helps tremendously

[–]2wiseclockcounter 13 points14 points  (1 child)

a funny sort of loop worth being aware of at your age is this though:

Everyone knows who's fucked who in high school. Unless you carry yourself in a way to convince people of the proverbial summer-camp fling, then most people will know pretty accurately your count.

The loop comes in here though- everyone knows people's counts because everyone talks and brags and gossips. Disappear with a girl at a party? People will draw conclusions and berate you for details. DON'T SAY SHIT. And if you must, say as much as the girl's reputation can bare and she will come back for more. Goody two shoes? "We just kissed and stuff of course, mostly talked though, she's actually really cool." Girl who is a bit more openly sexualized? "Haha, you'd like to know, wouldn't you." (vaguely implying you had plenty a good time = plausible deniability and imagination > facts) Girl that is a known slut? "dude... get your own stories." (or something equally dismissive that ends it.)

You don't need to talk about your victories, the girls will talk for you. And more accurately, the more lasting victories are the ones you intentionally keep from others. This is really a long winded way to say that in an enclosed social system like high school, a girl's reputation is everything to her (it's important to realize that college and the late-20's+ game TRP usually talks about are different in this way cuz it's such a larger scale). If you are clued into this fact and resist your ego's urge to jerk your dick off to your friends about what a player you are, then girls will be much more likely to get with you because you "just get it", you know how to play the game. The second you secure the label "obnoxious loud fuck who tells everyone who he's boned" is the second you relegate yourself to only the sluttiest of cunts who give no fucks.

You've got the lifting down. Next is start working a job. Even two days a week for a consistent time and you'll have a decent stock of cash. Arrange some deal with your parents to secure a car or just save for your own. Sure it's obvious advice, but as someone who did not pull that off, I assure you that advantage is astronomical.

TL;DR Be clued into reputation/SMV and stfu accordingly. Get your own transportation and money.

[–]flexiblehold 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just wanted to add to your quality post: if a woman doesn't shit-test-101 ask-you-your-count, that's a good sign you aren't giving her tingles.

[–]trpMilo 6 points7 points  (11 children)

Treat it like lifting. You won't be benching 225 right away, but keep up with lifting and trying to truly understand what women want and desire, and by the time you're in college you'll be benching 315 and fucking ridiculously attractive girls

[–]BlackHeart89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Considering you've been lifting since 7th grade, I'm not surprised. Keep it up and you'll be crushing the about 90% of other people who regularly work out by time you're 20. During the teens is the best time to build muscle. The hormones due to the fact that you're still growing won't just give you acme. It'll help in the gym as well.

[–]trpMilo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And you're a high school freshman?

I want to believe you, but there's a 10% chance that you're an extremely gifted athlete, and a 90% chance that you're not touching the bar to your chest.

[–]liftedhabits 27 points27 points [recovered]

im incredibly jealous, yet extremely happy for you. Just dont quit, and when the times get tough (they will) keep your head up and just keep lifting. if life is beating you down, it helps to be buff

[–]Drewtothesky 10 points10 points [recovered]

Just discovered the red pill this week and swallowed it Monday. Dumped my LTR Tuesday after she shit tested me and I realized she didn't show any respect for me. Probably going to go into monk mode for a month or so and get my shit in order.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

it sounds easier than it is, but through discipline, failure, and perseverance you'll discover things about yourself you never knew. That is the beauty of redpill. It gives you the equipment to chisel yourself into the man you were meant to become without the hindering effects of society's gender binarisms.

[–]coffee_and_lumber 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm 38. If I were doing it all over again, I'd swallow the pill as well, and get financially sound from the get go. Start that Roth IRA the moment you start making money and contribute regularly, however modest the amounts. Having my man shit together and my money game down would have transformed my entire life's path into something wholly more successful.

[–]OrpheusV 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Compound interest: The most powerful force in the universe, ladies and gentlemen.

Really though, once I get some last loans paid off from college, I need to open one and start dumping what I can into it.

[–]JaxSwagger 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Just don't over do it. I know younger guys who swallow and they're all hopped up on hormones and overcompensate so fucking badly. It's about the self, dominating the self, not dominating others. It's about building yourself up, not tearing others down to make yourself look big.

Be alpha, don't be "alpha". Be a no nonsense having badass, but be cool to people. If there was a single thing I could say to a man right before I ripped the plug from his mind it would be: "You're going to become hard, try not to become cold."

I envy you mate, you've avoided so many pitfalls by finding this place early.

[–]Drewtothesky 6 points6 points [recovered]

I know what you mean. I know to many people who are just straight assholes to seem big. But they're nothing but straight insecurities and fear. Type of guys who no show to fights. I'm cool with everyone(or at least I try and be) unless they give me a reason to not be

[–]JaxSwagger 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That's a healthy approach, as long as you maintain frame and aren't ashamed to disagree with people or develop your own opinions. But people are really solipsistic, so there's no need to try to force your opinions on others.

Also, I notice in another comment a few minutes ago you said you dumped your girlfriend for shit testing you. Homie, they all shit test. Always. It's like asking a man to "stop looking at other girls", it's never gonna happen. Some shit test more than others, I just hard nexted a feminist plate who has had about 50 alpha swords run through her and she shit tests non-fucking-stop. Girls can get addicted to a man passing shit tests, they love feeling your strength. But enough is enough and sometimes you just have to cut them loose. But don't expect to find a girl who doesn't shit test at all, they all do. Learning to pass shit tests is paramount to game.

Oh and not to get all "dad-game" up in here, but study hard, get a scholarship into a good school and major in something STEM related. You will thank yourself eternally 10 years down the line when you're on triple figures with a house paid out and a nest egg growing, going to work surrounded by intelligent and competent men.

[–]Drewtothesky 12 points12 points [recovered]

I entered that relationship as a beta and she already had all the control. As far as I could tell by the way she was acting and the guys she was hangin with she'd already found a new dick to ride. So I took the power from her. I'll give it a few months and I can turn her into a plate.

[–]JTPish 13 points14 points  (1 child)

[–]cmiovino 11 points12 points  (5 children)

You'll look back in 5 years and go, "Holy shit, I'm awesome."

Take it from me - at age 27, I had rotten time in high school, a decently fun time in college, and three 3-4 relationships through it all, major oneitis each time.

My only regret is not finding TRP earlier. No manning up. Not going for what I want. If I had, I would have been surrounded my awesome friends, girls, doing the hobbies and things I wanted, and most of all growing as a person leaps and bounds.

Making up for lost time now at age 27, but not nearly as bad as some individuals who are married, kids, all that. ALMOST was though. Scary. Very scary.

[–]JaxSwagger 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I thank the universe every fucking day that I didn't get married or pop a kid out in my beta days. And to think I gladly would have! Dodged a massive bullet, considering my last ex was BPD and I thought I could save her...


[–]Senior Contributorcocaine_face 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Preach it.

The girl who broke me, and set me on the path I am now had slated me as her eventual BB and was like that.

Truly a useless person. Never had a job, couldn't even drive till I taught her.

She moved away, and I'm glad I never followed her. She'd have probably "conveniently" gotten pregnant and I'd be on a quick path to suicide.

[–]JaxSwagger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aside from all her shit, what got to me the most was how she pegged me as beta right off the bat and played me like a fiddle.

Now, I knew some game and I ran it pretty smooth, alas I was a beta beneath a mask and she saw right through my thin veneer.

It was in the withholding sex early on, the cancelling dates and the rearranging things at her convenience, the prioritizing spending time with her "bestie" over me. It was in the way she lovingly emasculated me, held me in a beta box in her mind, her default perception of me was not that of a strong man and she actively resisted my efforts to change that perception.

That bestie was a total non-nonsense having badass, a natural alpha who radiated warmth, power and humour towards anyone he met. He was a man, and I was not in her mind. He was the kind of guy we all get into game because we envy, a natural 10 who spun plates as a default since he discovered pussy. They'd been friends for half her life. He was railing her the entire time we were together and one night we were all drinking she figured I was so pathetic she could just be open with it in front of me. He was more empathetic to my plight than she was, she was too drunk and high to even give a shit about the abyss I was falling into. Turns out they'd been fucking since they were teens, he was her first boyfriends best friend and bandmate and they started screwing behind his back in their teens.

I broke up with her the next morning and wandered the landscape searching for an answer. Why?

She didn't even care. This was a woman who 2 days earlier was talking about buying a place together and how lucky she was to have found me. Broke up, and gone. Nothing. No emotion.

No one could say, they offered how's, what's, who's and comfort. But no one offered why.

No one but the men at the red pill. AWALT, but an alpha widowed BPD? What the fuck did I expect?

Funny thing, I saw him a few months back and realized I've grown so much that I no longer view him as a 10. I'd have higher SMV now.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Hey, Good to see someone else from high school on this sub. I'm a senior in high school right now and graduating this June. Some of the biggest tips for high school from my experience is search for good male teachers that are chill and can mentor you. I'm doing stem next year but found a great mentor who is a Spanish teacher so keep your mind open. You should also try to join sports teams. they will give you connections and an activity to keep you off your ass bumming around. Try weed /alcohol and all that if you truly want to but don't get peer pressured into it. It does open up some routes for practicing game though. I was the same as you situation except when i got my oneitis in freshman year i didn't find this sub and sulked around depressed for two years (pretty pathetic). This place goes far for you. Last but most important tip; Don't talk about this shit with your friends, its tempting as hell because you want to help them when their down, but all it will do is label you as a manipulative dick and as you might already know, don't listen to that modern lit feminist bullshit. it fucks with your brain and is the prime class for programming others into the blue pill lifestyle.

[–]Drewtothesky 4 points4 points [recovered]

Already play football, and I'm a powerlifter. I've got pretty good base of friends and I'm good friends with some upperclassmen and I've already been to a good bit of parties. I've tried my hand with alcohol and weed. It all comes with moderation. I can get drunk every now and then but, I've got better things to do then be party animal. I honestly think I'm pretty wise for my age. I'm young. But I'm not naive. With the knowledge of the red pill in my mind. I've already started to set boundaries and I've started valuing my time more then anything. It's great.

[–]foldpak111 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lucky guy. I was the guy with no friends. Weighed 103# soaking wet, bad acne, women laughed at me. It's like night and day compared to who I am now and I love it. The party part hit a nerve for me. Seeing everyone hook up, talk about parties and festivals while I was friendless, eating cheetos and living in video games... but it gave me a level of intensity that drives me pretty hard so I guess I have that going for me.

[–]marty2k 2 points3 points  (2 children)

If you're going to college, the best thing you can ever do is focus your high school years into getting ready for that. Get in the best shape you can, learn everything you can about seduction/social mastery, approach women all the time and fuck a lot, practice being assertive and dominant, practice deepening your voice, learn to talk to everyone and make good friends, make a ton of mistakes, then say "adios motherfuckers" and use that shit in college. If you go to college with the right game plan you will be swimming in pussy before your firs class starts. I got into this kind of stuff right around your time, and although I could have done more (focused mostly on game and getting rid of social anxiety, didn't really lift till later) I made out very very well.

High school is a joke compared to what you can get out of college, the only people who see high school as the hay day of their sexual success are the dumbass jocks who gained weight and never developed after school. Even if you don't go to college and decide to go to work right out of high school, this shit will still pay off in spades.

[–]thelotusknyte 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn if I knew what you're learning now when I was in high school my life would have been so different.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 34 points35 points  (8 children)

No doubt. Most of us here have similar regrets, even if we happen to be at different ages and different stages in our lives.

The important thing to remember is this:

Everything that happened to you up until this point HAD TO HAPPEN in order for you to arrive at your current perspective.

A lot of guys new to The Red Pill lament their wasted years. "I wish I had done X sooner", or "I wish I had stopped doing Y", then I wouldn't have had to go through all that suffering and horseshit.

The suffering and horseshit were a NECESSARY part of your awakening.

You had to experience conflict, and failure, and shame, and deep-rooted unhappiness, and a creeping suspicion that things were not as they seemed before you could begin questioning the Matrix.

Your failures were not wasted time. They were the necessary threshhold to overcoming your indoctrination.

Don't lament your lost time. There are countless men in the ground - men who died with their eyes still closed - and you are not among them. Celebrate the fact that you are awake NOW, and take every opportunity to take control of your life and prosperity from this point forward.

Pretty sure if some a red pill man had come to me back in highschool to teach me the ways, I would have called him crazy, and an asshole.

No amount of knowledge will change anything if you're not ready for it. Regrettable, but true.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Pretty sure if some a red pill man had come to me back in highschool to teach me the ways, I would have called him crazy, and an asshole.

Exactly. ♂

If someone had brought us the information before we were ready to hear it, we might have rejected it outright. And those of us who are particularly stubborn (like myself) might have become willfully deaf to the truth forever after.

It takes pain to shut our mouths and open our eyes and ears.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Man, I remember when I first found TRP. I thought it was just a crazy bunch of virgins. But I came across the subreddit a few months later and gave it a chance. So happy I did.

And even then most don't want to listen. The amount of Beta's in their late thirties is staggering.

[–]Factushima 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One guy in particular (who gave up everything for a girl that branch swung on him) said to me: "yeah, good luck with all that. "

Everyone else dismissed it as jaded.

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

All the more reason to start teaching TRP truths at an even younger age.

[–]Danedina 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Because when you get right down to it there's nothing that radical taking place here. There are some unpleasant truths, like the fact that women will cheat, and lie about being raped, and flirt with their boyfriend's best friend, and choose the guy with the bigger biceps more often than not, etc.

Society is an artificial construction that needs people to play by the rules to maintain order. Some of these rules contradict our natural instincts. Society's keepers of the peace feed people -- particularly young men -- a set of fictions backed up by threats. We play along in daily life even when there is a bad taste in our mouth.

At the Red Pill we remove our facades and speak frankly. People who aren't ready for these truths, or who are part of the machinery, try to paint as some kind of hate group and dismiss the larger truths we advance, choosing instead to nip at the corners of our arguments or focusing on guys who overreact to the obvious conclusions while in the anger stage.

[–]foldpak111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even when I was BP girls would talk shit about their bf's and mess around with me behind their backs. It's awesome when you're not on the receiving end lol

[–]Glenwalk 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Stay away from the terrible group of friends I associated myself with in high school
  • Remove betas from your life

For many people I think this is in reference to shitty groups of friends who didn't end up amounting to anything, but not neccessarily betas. My high school friends were pretty alpha in high school (frame, girls, DGAF), but they're still mostly doing the same shit they were doing before.

So if I could go back I'd probably hang out with the more beta crowd and focus on doing well in school. In law school now so it's fine, but I limited myself by taking all arts courses in high school so I could slack off and get drunk.

[–][deleted] 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Why isn't anyone saying "I should have been more sensitive" or "I wish I had waited 2 months before making a move..." ? I thought Blue Pill was the "right" way of dealing with reality?

[–]Geleemann 16 points17 points  (0 children)

To not give a flying fuck what others think about you.

[–]indlife 17 points17 points [recovered]

I went to a smaller suburban high school, very conservative area in a conservative part of the country. While I talked to most of my classmates, I mostly was beta with a bunch of beta friends. We actually all could hold conversations, but when it came to romance, we all were pathetic for the most part. I was too scared of rejection, was never told about relationships/sex/girls at that age, etc..

What I would tell myself and most other young men today:

1: Be active in sports, lift.

2: Rejection is a part of life. So long as a guy is cute enough, there is likely a girl who will want to at least go out on a date or two.

3: Sex is natural, it is something that should be discussed with your guy friends. It is not a mortal sin, that 99% of people who have ever been married likely had sex before they got married. It is also OK to discuss sex with girls, it can definitely lead to something sexual down the road.

4: Losing your virginity to a virgin might sound all good and dreamy, and it is what society tries to push young men and women into doing, but clutching onto that dream could have a negative impact. If a young man has the chance to lose it at a party, or two a frisky neighbor, do it, just make sure it is safe.

5: Take reasonable, moderated risk. Fool around in a car, in a park, in the woods, at school, etc.. Hard core drugs I would advise against, focusing on alcohol and making sure you don't drink and drive.

6: Relationships are good, but given how the world has changed, don't feel the need to be trapped into a relationship. If another girl seems interested, the best course of action might be to break-up and date the new girl.

7: Make sure you go away to college, or if going to a trade school, live in an apartment near a college or where other young people live (those who are moving back from college will be 21, and you could get an alcohol supply this way). Either way, a young man needs to not live at home for years after high school unless his parents are totally OK with him living an adult lifestyle. There are some things that should be respected, but for the most part, anything the guy could do in college he should be allowed to do while living at home. Once in college, unless you know with 100% certainty a current gf is 'the one,' don't be tied down. Be prepared to have some fun, get some experience with the ladies.

8: Consider traveling over the summer, even if it means working. This is especially important if one has to live at home during college. I personally would recommend jobs in awesome national parks.

9: If you aren't going to go to school and instead just work, seriously consider working at a place where there are numerous employees your age, as well as a nice bar area where people are known to drink. One of my biggest mistakes was working at a print shop. The bulk of the employees were a generation ahead of me, and the customer base were mostly professional adults.

[–]John___Rambo 7 points7 points [recovered]

I really wish I found trp a few years back

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)


When I was in high school, I really didn't give a fuck about my future. I was pretty cool and had a lot of friends, but I was content with mediocrity when it came to my studies and pursuing things I'm passionate about (music and art).


I was lazy as fuck in high school, total slob who never cleaned his room and slightly unhygienic. I would call in sick to my part time job sometimes just cause I didn't "feel like" going to work. It took me way longer than the average person on my level of smarts (not saying I'm a genius, but I was smarter than the "average" kids.. Just never pushed myself) to get my act together.

There is no "One" - I had that disney idea of women in my head when I was in high school.. Or rather, I knew a lot of girls at my school were total sluts.. But I always stayed away from them because I wanted to have sex with "someone I care about" what a load of garbage lol.. I shoulda just banged that older girl who used to give me rides after school and steal booze from her parents to party with on the weekend.


I was kind of chubby in high school, mainly cause I was a lazy fuck and only drank sugary drinks as my source of liquid. My diet consisted of frozen dinners, fast food, and pizza.


When I was in high school, I got accepted my senior year to go to a college in Vermont, as well as one in Boston MA. I didn't go to either because I didn't want to leave my friends and I was scared. Instead I went to some mediocre community college so I could hang around my buds. I gave my parents some piss poor excuse like "I don't know what I want to do with my life and don't want to go into debt if I'm not sure". Truth is, I did know what I wanted to do but didn't want to leave my friends and everyone I knew behind.. A couple of years later and what do you know? Most of them have stabbed me in the back at least once and I wound up weeding a lot of them out.

Most importantly…


Now I'm not saying you should be disobedient and go against everyone. Often times teachers will give you constructive criticism, or your parents will tell you to keep your bills and stuff in line..

I'm saying that people who say you shouldn't chase your dream or you shouldn't take risks generally don't actually care about you. Living life safely all the time is boring as fuck, and a lot of people miss out on some great life experiences by "playing it safe".

For example

"Don't buy a motorcycle, they're dangerous!"

"Don't join the military, what if you die?"

"Don't pursue a career in the arts, you'll be poor"

"Don't go to the gym that's for meatheads"

"Don't go backpacking in Europe, you could get kidnapped!"

Generally, most of these people who say stuff like this to you don't actually care about you.. They just want you to be like them so they feel normal. They want you to think the same things they think because it makes them feel comfortable. I'm not saying you need to kick people like this out of your life, just take what they say with a grain of salt and realize you're two different people with two different mindsets. Don't take their distaste for what you may want to TRULY do with your life as advice.

[–]aa223 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Well first I would kick my high school self's ass for being so fucking weak willed. Then I would say lift, go crazy, stop looking at women as your superior, and just be yourself. Improve yourself and keep getting angry at things and use it to further yourself.

[–]foldpak111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would bully the shit out of my high school self. Eat a god damn sandwich

[–]trpMilo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes, this is Red Pill advice, but it also illustrates a fundamental principle: these people all wished they did things that were hard at the time so that their lives could be easier now. In the past, the things they did were the things that were easy, that felt good.

Your brain will always pick the hard but rewarding option for your future self or your past self. It's your present self that's the problem.

[–]sanglupus 20 points21 points  (5 children)

You don't need approval from anyone.

There is no such thing as sexual leagues.

Every girl is a slut.

[–]FattestRabbit 7 points8 points  (3 children)

There is no such thing as sexual leagues.

Would you mind expanding on this? Or do you simply mean no girl is "out of my league" (no leagues exist)? This may be a dumb question; I just haven't run into this on TRP yet.

[–]JTPish 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I've bedded so many women who I considered "out of my league", I don't believe anyone is unobtainable anymore. Plus, there's an abundance of attractive, intelligent beauties out there. If HB10 #1 isn't interested, HB10 #N+1 probably is.

[–]sanglupus 11 points12 points  (0 children)

As children we are conditioned to believe that the idea of a league is based entirely on the aesthetic value of each other. This is largely because as children the only real defining characteristic that affects our SMV is how we look. It winds up shaping our position in the social pecking order, and eventually inflated or deflated self confidence. In HS I was convinced that certain people were out of my league, just looked too hot or were too popular.

Later I came to the realization that my SMV had been much higher than I even realized, and that this affected my follow through incessantly. It wasn't until I abolished the idea of leagues, and paired it with my understanding of AWALT and the hypergamy of LMS that I catapulted forward not just in dating high SMV women but also socially, and financially.

tl;dr If I had broken my ideas of leagues when I was younger I would have instinctively understood hypergamy and how to exploit it as I got older.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Stop being so nice to girls. Be brave, put yourself first. Believe in yourself more and don't be afraid of the pussy, cause there is lots of it and lots of fish in the sea.

[–]canadianhousecoat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just fuck up that asshole bully in grade 8 instead of grade 10 and life will get better.

[–]xaphody 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lose that fucking weight! Your life becomes so much easier once you drop below 100kg. People will treat you nicer and they will give you that job because your not a fat fucking mess. Go to university now instead of waiting until your 24 to start. Believe in yourself, no one else will.

[–]Nodeal_reddit 2 points3 points  (1 child)

  • I'd eat a lot more. I used to lift, but I was so worried about getting fat that I never came anywhere near reaching my potential. I'd have had a much more interesting college experience if I'd come in with an extra 20 pounds of muscle.
  • I'd punch the older guy who bullied me when I was a freshman.
  • I'd not punch the younger guy who "stole" my girlfriend my jr year.
  • I'd change the time I told my friend I'd shave my Head if he went first - and then backed out when I saw how dumb he looked.
  • I'd have asked a LOT more girls for BJs
  • I'd be less afraid to talk to random girls.

Now, things I'd tell myself I was doing right:

  • stay away from pot & booze. There's plenty of time for that after HS
  • keep lifting ( with the caveat to eat more)

[–]foldpak111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Break up with your L8TR and fuck that girl that said she would do "anything". Fuck that was dumb

[–]Reddington12 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'd say oneitis is the worst thought process most people had when they were younger. Not just with women but in general. "I'll never be happy if I'm not with her," "I'll never be happy if I don't achieve X." Then you get older and realize you've lived without people/things for years that you thought you'd never get through a day without.

[–]Temptationn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd tell myself to start lifting and have a proper diet. I'd also tell myself to find a new group to hang with. I had 2 groups of people I hung with, the "xbox nerds" and the "stoners" both lead me to start to fail.

tldr; Start lifting, study more and sell my xbox.

I'm not sure if my younger self would listen to anything I have to say :/

I would tell him how important it is to lift, I think he would get that and it would help him out. I think instead of trying to convince him of TRP, I would recommend which friends to hang out with, and I think he'll figure it out on his own faster.

Also, obligatory buy apple stock and bitcoin-

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

"Go talk to that bitch instead of pining over her from afar. You might get lucky but most likely you'll get blown out. Feels shitty, right? You'll be over it in a day or two but she'll still be a bitch. Now you can take her off the pedestal and get on with your life. Let some other chump pine over her."

EDIT: found her on Facebook decades later and, while she's still got that pretty smile that I liked, she was godawful boring.

[–]BlackHeart89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was shy little fucker. I didn't have much confidence.

I would tell myself:

  • Join the football team. If for nothing else, do it for the weights and the discipline.

  • Sleep more. Goddamnit, sleep more. Like no less than 7 hours a night.

  • Fats are good for you. Excess calories is what makes you a fat fuck.

  • Women like loud, out-spoken, obnoxious assholes way more than the quiet, respectful, nice guy who is actually interested in what they have to say and their interests.

  • Chase success. Women come with it. The smarter you become, the more money you make, etc, the easier it will be to get women. Women are just a distraction and will make your life miserable if it revolves around them. Same with friends. Not just women.

  • Honestly is NOT ALWAYS the best policy.

  • When at work, learn to cut corners without being caught. I've worked jobs where if you don't cut corners, the work won't get done as fast as they want it done. BUT, if you're caught, you'll be written up. And just because you do a great job, doesn't mean the slacker won't get that raise before you. He's a better bullshitter than you are a worker.

  • Do some volunteer work

  • Get braces

  • Women lie too

  • Learn more about cars and take whatever martial arts class you can get. Yes. You will probably get your ass kicked by everyone there. BUT, you'll still be better prepared than you were before. The boost in confidence will be ridiculous. You more than likely won't even need to use the shit.

  • Use a condom during with LTR 2. Nothing bad happened, but that set me up for performance anxiety when using condoms with future chicks.

Some much shit I would go back and tell myself. Its crazy.

In 10 years I'll look back at now and have a ton of things I wish I would have done differently.

All of these things are about missed opportunities so I'm going to assume that the things I wish I would have done differently in the future will also be about missed opportunities.

It seriously just all clicked.

I need to stop living in the now or tomorrow and live in the future. Minor consequences don't really matter as long as I leave no stone unturned.
