Red Pill TheoryScience says: Women most attracted to arrogance, confrontative behavior, and musculature for short term relationships (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

This is a repost of a post made by /u/lono12 a few years ago. Unfortunately the hyperlink in his OP is dead. So after painstakingly searching the Internet, I finally found a PDF of the study he referenced. I've reposted his original text with the hyperlink updated to an archive of the PDF.

Changes in Women’s Mate Preferences Across the Ovulatory Cycle

Everybody's been talking about the ovulatory cycle, even mass media articles. So here it is redpill style.

The science is pretty clear. Women go for good genes when they're ovulating and beta resources the rest of the month. Same with short term versus long term relationships. What's interesting is the specific traits and behaviors they're attracted to, and how these traits interact.

This quote for example:

Relative to women low in conception risk, those high in conception risk particularly preferred as short-term mates men who appeared more confrontative, arrogant, muscular, socially respected, and physically attractive. When high in conception risk, women were also more attracted to men who were viewed as lower on faithfulness as short-term mates.

You heard that right. Women are more attracted to men who they think are unfaithful.

We also tested these effects while statistically controlling for two behavioral display > indicators examined by Gangestad et al. (2004), Social Presence and Direct Intrasexual Competitiveness. In most instances, interactions remained significant or neared significance, indicating that the effects reported here are not redundant with the effects reported previously. For confrontativeness, arrogance, faithfulness, and muscularity, ts = 3.13 (df = 7986), 2.64 (df = 8081), -2.27 (df = 8057), and 1.85 (df = 7957), respectively, all ps < .041. For social respect, t(7927) = 1.51 (p = .081). For physical attractiveness, the effect dropped to nonsiginifance.t(7925) = 1.09, ns. Women rely on behavioral information when evaluating the attractiveness of men. The results suggest that fertile women are particularly attracted to these components of physical attractiveness.

What this quote is saying is that even while controlling for two big traits that were found attractive in a previous study (Social Presence and Direct Intrasexual Competitiveness), the traits in this study were still significance and the one that was most significant was social respect (p = 0.81).

confrontativeness: 3.13 arrogance: 2.64 muscularity: 1.85 faithfulness: -2.27

Basically, women love shit starting cunts.

The most interesting part was this chart: http://archive.is/lNvTs

Womens standards of attractiveness do not change across the cycle in general for all mate traits. Standards associated with particular traits perceived systemically change. This pattern is consistent with the good genes hypothesis. This hypothesis however makes an > even more specific prediction. about which male traits should be most attractive to fertile > women. Fertile women should be especially drawn to men who possess traits typically values > in short term mates.

Figure 1 shows the results of these tests. As can be seen, the extent to which male traits > were preferred in short-term mating contexts strongly predicted the extent to which this > was particularly true of fertile versus infertile women. indeed the correlation is close to > perfect .93.

And thus the arrogant confrontational douchebag wins the girl while the warm faithful beta stays home and faps into his sock

“Practical Female Psychology: For the Practical Man” by Joseph South, David Clare and Franco is a book I am currently reading after seeing it mentioned in the comments of a recent post on The Rational Male.

Put simply, it’s the best book on red pill theory I have ever read. Right up there with Rollo’s books. It was published in 2008, so was written by contemporaries of our esteemed elders Pook, Roissy, Roosh, Rollo and others.

It is so good, and yet, in one year of red pill awareness, I had never seen it mentioned or suggested anywhere. So I thought it’d deserve its own post, rather than me casually mentioning it in a comment next time someone asks for book suggestions.

I so strongly encourage you to get it and read it that I’ll allow myself to reprint here a particularly good chapter to motivate you. Hopefully it's ok to do so and will bring some traffic to the authors' amazon page. Before I’d do so, I’d provide a quick lesson learned:

  • Frequent other red pill websites than this sub, and particularly the comments sections of blogs. There are some gems out there.

PS: Feel free to debate and oppose the ideas but remember the following are not my writings – just reprinting.

Chapter 11 Stages of Manipulation

When it comes to marriage, one man is as good as the next. And even the least accomodating is less trouble than a mother. - Marquise de Merteuil in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses," by Choderlos De Laclos.

We believe that manipulation is an instinctual behavior deeply rooted within female biology. Manipulation is also a learned behavior, due to one's need for survival. From a biological point of view there is not too much of a difference between biologically-rooted and learned behavior. In fact, from the point of view of both modern neurobiology and evolutionary psychology, behaviors repeated and learned over time become deeply rooted in the neurological patterns within the brain, to the point where the behavior becomes largely unconscious. As individuals are prone to choose behaviors which support survival, manipulation has certainly been selected as a desirable survival skill.

Manipulation can be defined as the attempt to influence another person's mind to achieve a certain outcome. Manipulation is very often seen as a negative thing. We, however, are not judgmental about manipulation, and actually consider it a positive feature, which has been designed to keep life continuing on this planet.

In order to best manage relationships with women, the Modern Man should understand that there are various stages of manipulation that a woman will go through during the course of a relationship with a man.

On the biological level, the female of our species is programmed to:

  1. Elicit a strong sexual attraction in one or more strong males.

  2. Feel a strong sexual attraction for such males.

  3. Become impregnated by her choice of male.

  4. Have a male to provide materially for both her and her infant child.

  5. Afterwards, she will subconsciously tend to operate in such a way so as to have her sexual attraction for that male decrease.

  6. Wash, rinse, repeat: she will tend to have more sexual intercourse and more children with other strong males.

We call this process betaization, where the strong, alpha male is rendered beta — which means "secondary" or "subservient" — within the relationship, over a period of time. Quite often, this process occurs gradually and almost imperceptibly to both parties.

Manipulation is widely used by women to achieve:

  • Safety and comfort for her and her children, with their survival being the primary purpose.

  • To thereby influence the man's mind in such a way that he will feel compelled to protect her and her children, especially before pregnancy, during the pregnancy and throughout the children's early developmental years.

Female manipulation can be either creative or destructive, depending on the desired outcome. From the point of view of the man, female manipulation can be considered "good" when it supports life and the man's interests and "bad" when it destroys life and/or damages the man's interests.

Succinctly, the more manipulation is used by a woman, the more it becomes natural and unconscious to her. It is like learning to play a musical instrument: at first it is difficult and one needs to pay conscious attention to each note being played, Then, as mastery is gradually achieved, manipulation becomes more and more unconscious.

Behaviors are slow to develop and also slow to be unlearned. In the modem woman of the industrialized countries, the way instincts are expressed has changed slightly with time, due to less-demanding survival conditions. However, the influence of the female's primal instincts on her behavior remains evident.

It is important for you to learn to recognize manipulation. In fact — as we discussed in Chapter 4 "Female Basic Conflict" — for a woman's sexuality to be satisfied, it is important that her manipulation attempts against her man not be too effective. You must learn to observe female behavior and give the right responses, with the goal of making her happy on the emotional level, as opposed to responding to manipulation attempts on a logical level.

Learning to respond appropriately requires knowing the various stages of female manipulation.

Stages of Female Manipulation

A woman's attempt to own you mentally will follow certain incremental stages, which predictably occur with mathematical precision. We will now discuss each of the following stages in detail:

  • Testing the Male

  • Seeking Communication

  • Putting him to Work

  • Evolutionary Selfishness

  • Self-Determination

Depending on the woman's self-esteem, there are big differences in the way these stages will play themselves out. If a woman has high self-esteem (HSE), she will test you and manipulate you in a totally different way than a woman who has low self-esteem (LSE).

Testing the Male

"Let me be a little bitch to him.” A woman knows on the instinctual level — and also on the rational level — that a man can impregnate a large number of women without too many consequences. In our modem age of mandatory child support, this is not always true in practical terms, but biologically it remains the case that the female has a much higher risk and burden when it comes to pregnancy than the man does.

A woman also knows that a weak male will not be able to protect her or her children in any way. Imagine as a man how your thoughts about survival would be different if every time you made love to a woman you faced the possibility of carrying a baby in your belly for the next nine months, followed by the primary responsibility of taking care of the baby for many years to come. Imagine how you would feel if you knew that your partner could leave you at any time and impregnate other women and/or leave for war or for hunting. Get the picture? You would become much more selective in your choices of who to mate with. From this biological reality stems the deep need that a woman has to test the male for his physical and leadership qualities. In our modern society, the need to test for physical qualities and financial stability has become less important than the need for qualities such as leadership, intellectual capacity, and strength of personality; but that would be quickly reversed in the case of war.

One thing is for sure: a woman in this stage will test the male for his skill of being a hunter. This will happen whether you are skilled in hunting animals in the grassy field or company shares in the business field; you can be sure that at the first stage of manipulation a woman will test you.

A woman will always test a male who she is sexually attracted to. For a psychologically healthy woman, survival and sexual desire must always harmonize with each other. A woman who tests men only for survival benefits — such as a man's ability to provide — is denying her sexuality. A woman who tests men only for their sexual appeal, is either planning to live her life without men, or is being self-destructive.

Seeking Communication

"Open up to me, please."

Once a woman has tested the male, and is relatively sure that he is strong enough to serve her purposes, her concern begins to revolve around making the man serve her exclusively. Many men who are relatively strong and pass the tests of the first stage, fail to understand the meaning of this second stage. This stage is extremely difficult for the average man to detect. It is instinctually and often unconsciously masked by the woman as a purely innocent attempt to "communicate" with the male.

It is a feature of the feminine psyche to appreciate communication above all else, but from an evolutionary point of view what the female of our species is really doing at this stage is using language to befuddle her partner, which will hopefully cause him to serve her and her purposes.

This stage is extremely important to the success or failure of couple relationships. Couple therapy fails so frequently because it tends to disregard the real, evolutionary meaning of this stage. A very common pitfall for couples is when the woman starts to feel that the man is displaying an inability or unwillingness to "communicate properly" with the woman. Modern couples therapy almost invariably places the blame for this supposed lack of communication squarely on the man's shoulders.

In the first stage, the woman has screened out the weaker males; the man was specifically chosen by the woman for a relationship. In this second stage, the woman acts as if she is seeking deeper communication with the man. A strong man will start to sense that an attempt is being made to weaken him, and he will then usually react with certain predictable behavior patterns. He may get angry or he may withdraw.

[–]steakhause 48 points49 points  (17 children)

Putting Him to Work

"Honey, please take out the trash and wash the cat, and please hurry!" When and if a man opens himself emotionally up to a woman — in the sense of what we discussed in the preceding subsection — from that point onwards the woman effectively owns the frame of the relationship. Now, the active destruction of attraction can begin in earnest, as she starts her attempts to take over aspects of the man's life which directly affect his material interests. For example, purchase decisions can now be made "jointly" which, in the cool light of rational analysis, really are the result of the woman's manipulation attempts and the man's desire to maintain some semblance of peace in the household.

Female Evolutionary Selfishness

"I am never satisfied no matter what you do or how hard you try." This stage begins once the woman has succeeded in having her formerly-strong male open up to her emotionally. In this stage, any communication with her male partner is only for the purpose of deriving something useful for her and her children. At this stage she will exhibit a total disregard for the man's psychological and material interests. The man will be put under the power of a strong and constant psychological double bind, along the lines of:

"If you don't open up to me I am not satisfied. You don't communicate with me."

simultaneous with

"As soon as you open up to me I will use the information you provide in a totally selfish way for my own needs."

Either way, the end result for the male is usually guilt, shame, or confusion, finally giving way to resentment and anger. Assuming he takes her seriously — and most men do — he will get caught into an ongoing psychological mechanism, which will make him weaker and weaker, with terribly-negative results for her sexual attraction towards him. At this stage, he is no longer the strong male she admired at the beginning.

Female Self-Determination

"I am full grown, independent woman now." Of course, the female in the relationship never was a "little girl." In the self-determination stage, however, another double bind — even more powerful than the preceding — will be thrown at the male. Once he starts to seek out the emotional communication that she had been asking for all along, she will begin to express sentiments such as she is feeling oppressed, or that the man is boring, or that he is too nice, or that he doesn't understand her, and so on. Again, the usual effect of such feminine expressions on the man is bewilderment, shame and guilt.

If at this point the man decides that he does not care at all about what she says or does, she will assert that "he is not a loving husband /boyfriend" or "I cannot live with him because he does not understand me," or "I do not feel anything for him anymore," or "sex without communication is a turn off"; once again inducing some very negative feelings within the man.

In the Self-Determination Stage, the female expresses her resentment and dissatisfaction with the relationship. This happens virtually without exception in the case of male partners who have become progressively psychologically weaker with time.

Men who are able to pass through these stages without a corresponding decrease in their women's sexual attraction towards them are exceptionally-strong men. These men avoid becoming psychologically weaker through the process. We believe that such men are more the exception than the norm. It is much better for nature to first create attraction between a male and a female and soon after have it decrease. That helps to ensure both a safe upbringing of the offspring as well as more sexual interactions with other sexual partners, which in turn results in more offspring and a wider spreading of genetic materials.

This is not much different from what happens with many animal species, including species where the female kills the male after copulation. In the case of humans, this "killing" happens on the psychological level. The killing of human males by their female partners is largely symbolic, but we must also take into account those men who take this process so seriously that they start to destroy their health through the abuse of alcohol or drugs, or start to abuse their partners, or even murder their partners or commit suicide.

In other words, permanently-monogamous sexual relationships are not necessarily natural. They are partly a modern, social construct. Or, put another way, they are a social construct, the evolutionary purpose of which lasts for as long as Nature considers it useful.

Manipulation End-Game

In traditional, male-dominated societies, if the female cannot leave the relationship when her attraction evaporates through the process discussed above, the end result is often clinical depression and/or cheating. Clinical depression occurs when her sexual attraction for her mate decreases or dies out completely, and she is prevented from having sex with other males by social restraint. The woman in this case has to face a practically impossible conflict between her emotions, which demand sexual satisfaction, and her societally-restrained behavior, which prohibits sexual satisfaction.

In modem, politically-correct societies, a common end result of the manipulation process is the woman ending the relationship, or acting in such a way that the man has no other choice but to end the relationship. Infidelity is very likely to happen in either case.

Psychological counseling and family therapy usually fail to help couples in this situation because they start from the shaky assumption that exclusive committed relationships are always "healthy" and that having sex with different partners is "sick." They also fail miserably in detecting the slow and dangerous psychological process whereby the mind of the male is confronted with schizophrenic double messages from the female, which would be considered to fit the clinical definition of Borderline Personality Disorder by most experienced clinicians on the planet.

Usually what happens in therapy and psychological counseling in the western world is that the male is made to be the scapegoat of a process which has been actively maintained by the female. There are some professionals who understand this process better than most, but they often do not have the courage to speak out about it. On a meta-level, what is happening with this social process is simply another evolutionary mechanism, one which allows for more pregnancies and for the upbringing of children in the most viable way possible.

There is certainly a strong cultural influence at work here and it behooves men to understand these forces and to work hard to make themselves strong men who do not succumb easily to female manipulation. Above all, a man with children should start from the premise that he is an equally important and vital link to a child's psychological well being. There are countless studies which show that statistically, children do better in every social and psychological respect when they enjoy the equal influences of a healthy male and a healthy female parent.

Practical Advice

Although the onset, intensity and order of occurrence of each of these stages in the betaization process may vary from woman to woman, in our experience this process has occurred in every long-term relationship we are familiar with: ours, our friends, and our families, and in countless case studies that we have researched. In fact, this process is exactly the means by which women turn short-term relationships into long-term relationships. However, female manipulation is not difficult to counter once a man understands the process. Let's revisit each stage in turn.

Testing never ends. Women test unconsciously. Testing is the woman's primary method for determining congruency and for discerning a man's authenticity; his ability to be genuine. Testing ceases to be an issue of any significant consequence when the man is fully congruent — both internally and externally. The woman will still always test, but once a man has it together, he will pass the woman's tests without much effort or even realizing he is being tested.

Since testing is so closely related to the mechanisms controlling sexual attraction, it is important to remember that testing never ends. Maintaining an appropriate level of attraction within any romantic relationship is very important. One way we, the authors, maintain attraction with our mates is through regular, social interaction with other attractive females. For more information on why maintaining friendships with the opposite sex is important to your relationship, please see Chapter 19, "Male Qualities Attractive to Women."

[–]steakhause 53 points54 points  (15 children)

Seeking Communication is really her signal that she is suffering from emotional ambiguity. Most men view a woman's pronouncement of "I don't feel we are communicating" as a logical statement addressing the exchanging of facts — or a lack of such activity — between two people. It is not. It is an emotional statement involving her confusion and emotional disconnection from the relationship.

When the woman puts the blame on the man, this is normal, for two reasons. For one, women habitually blame their own emotional distress on external factors, thus absolving themselves from responsibility. When a man happens to be the most convenient "blame receptacle", then he gets the blame. The second reason she does this is that she is actually making a request for masculine leadership. She wants her man to step up and deal with her out-of-control emotional state with masculine strength, and without fear.

The only important word in any such statement coming from a woman is "feel." It's so important that in many cases it doesn't matter what she feels, as long as it's any emotion stronger than indifference. Anything with passion will do, as long as it's followed up, in all cases, with the appropriate level of physical commitment. And always make sure that intense displays of passion are followed by intense displays of affection. Let's be blunt: keep her well-sexed.

Being Put to Work can be stopped simply by saying "no." Do it sometimes. Just say no! If your woman has become habituated to your instant obedience, then refusing a request is going to stop her in her tracks. She will literally not know what to do. Lots of drama could ensue, so be prepared.

Another way to handle her constant requests is in a spirit of teasing and fun. You can gently make fun of her being "bossy," and so forth.

Yet another effective way to handle a woman's attempts to put you to work is to negotiate with her. For example, if she demands that you take the kids shopping for clothes, you can kindly request that she prepare a special meal while you are gone. While tit for tat may seem thoroughly unromantic, by the time a man is in this situation, we believe the romance is far gone anyway. There is nothing to lose, and your self-respect to regain.

Best yet, be proactive and act like a leader: women want to feel useful and contribute to something meaningful. Spend some time to give your female counterpart meaningful work, ensuring that you are the one who determines the direction of the family. You will find that agreeing on specific tasks becomes much easier. When you appreciate a good woman for her specific contribution, she will be delighted in her relationship, and feel she made an excellent selection in a man.

Evolutionary Selfishness is understandable when we consider that the female's primary concern is always for her own well-being and that of her children, It is difficult — if not impossible — for most women to feel altruistic or merciful towards a grown man. Your role as the man is to be her protector, or to get out of her way. However, as a strong protector you have great value in the eyes of a healthy woman. So the key here is to assert your value and put a price tag on your leadership of her and the family. This means simply that you lead the relationship and continually give her tasks within the context of the relationship.

Putting a price to your leadership also means having your own moral standards, whereby it's subcommunicated from the beginning and throughout the relationship that you, as a man, expect certain behaviors and certain types of treatment from the female, if she is to retain your interest in being her leader and protector. As we discussed in the chapters on Screening and Female Self-Esteem, certain women, obviously, will never be able to submit to male leadership, no matter how strong you are.

Self-Determination This stage is a very strong signal from the woman that — in her mind — the relationship has ended, or is about to end. She is effectively telling you that she no longer views the two of you as a unit. As difficult as it may seem, at this stage you may need to be prepared to let her go. Your best chance to salvage the relationship may be to start right back at the beginning; let her know that you are equally prepared to leave the relationship if you are not getting the respect and admiration that you want and deserve.

You never want to be in a position where you are chasing or begging a woman. Not only is that a pathetic position for a man to find himself in, but any shred of sexual attraction that had remained in the woman will be completely destroyed by such actions.

In reality, a man can survive just about anything, including the ending of a cherished relationship. Therefore, consider this stage as the ultimate test of how much of a man you really are. If you fail this test, the game is over with this particular woman.

** I'm 46 and still occasionally fall into this trap, just happened Friday night after a really shitty week. Told her how I was getting aggravated by something people were saying, not her. Wound up with her telling me I was being too sensitive (Pussy). Funny thing is I was just talking normal, she started raising her voice and getting annoyed. She wasn't even there for the conversations, but she knew without being there exactly how it went down. I just STFU after that, and was so pissed at myself for falling into it.

They tell you they want to know, but in reality they really don't.

The most ironic part of all of this is I had an issue with a family member this weekend (hinting at suicide) first part of the shitty week. He actually came to me to talk as the first adult to confide in.

Women: "I don't understand why boys and men cannot open up and keep everything inside them." Because out of everyone they are the most brutal to you after you open up to them.

And we wonder why 4 out of 5 suicides are men?

That's basically the definition of a woman's solipsism; she feels something internally, but needs to hamster it with reality. A man is always nearby if she's in a relationship, thus everything that's wrong in a woman's life is always a man's fault.

It's also probably the reason Uncle stays at his job late and asks me to go to the movies or why he's at the movies so often is he gets home and she just complains to him...god what a life most men are living just to fit in and keep the family unit together.

The problem I have with books like these is that while it's good to understand why women act a certain way, it doesn't actually tell you how to get women.

If anything if reading books like these makes you believe that all women are lying cheating cunts, then it's going to make you hate women which will of course make it harder for you to get laid.

White and Asian do these things and they are K-selective. Black women however are r-selective and don't really care about resources or money because they routinely get impregnated by bums. They're only concern is getting pregnant and they don't care by who

It's biological after hundreds of thousands of years, possibly even millions of years of environmental influence. The majority of sub-sahara Africa was a paradise of near infinite food, so there was little to no pressure of starvation, which meant they weren't required to plan food rations for their offspring, and were free to have as many children as possible.

[–]czatara 0 points1 point  (3 children)

This makes sense, it may manifest biologically as the higher testosterone level found in black human females.

[–]Jake213_0 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why would that equate to higher testosterone levels? Black women actually have lower testosterone levels and higher estrogen levels throughout their menstrual cycle than other races.


Its strange to me that people believe blacks have more testosterone when they don't exhibit traits that are significant of increased testosterone. Lack of body hair, full lips, more shapely bodies, etc..

In fact based on traits that exhibit testosterone I would say whites have physical traits that exhibit high levels of testosterone. More body hair, height, small lips, larger brow ridge, and even culturally European culture is naturally patriarchal and thrives and conquering and overpowing other groups effectively and skillfully.

[–]Jake213_0 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Facts back it up. If black women were K-selective they would make themselves more attractive to find a high quality mate. What they lacked in the looks department they would at least try to make up for in attitude and personality.

However black women are known for shitty attitudes and below average looks. That and studies have shown black women a majority (75%) don't want marriage or a long term relationship. While 43% of black men do. This in itself shows black women are more than happy to be single mothers and don't place value on attaining a high quality mate.

Black women are r-selective.


[–]BewareTheOldMan 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Older black man here...you are in fact correct. Out of wedlock birth rate for black women hovers around 73% - statistically the worst for women of ALL races. This is nothing to be proud of and extremely embarrassing when you consider at the turn of the 20th Century black men were the MOST married men in America (even with extreme racism, inequality, and segregation). More importantly - the [male/female] children suffer tremendously with many females continuing the cycle of single motherhood and 1 of 3 young men [age range 18-early 30's] ending up in prison. The prison statistic hasn't changed in years, while OOW births have gone from 25% in the 1960's [credit source the Moynihan Report] to today's unfathomable numbers. Incidentally OOW births for ALL races of women of marriageable-age [18-35] collectively hovers around 40%.

Noteworthy...there are many more single mothers than unmarried [never-married] fathers. You are all most likely familiar with the 80/20 rule - hence, women are breeding with the same number of low IQ and degenerate men. Every now and then a professional/blue collar male gets caught up as a "baby daddy," but these OOW mothers are NOT reproducing with scientists, doctors, attorneys, mathematicians, or strategic thinkers. You have "Chad." We have "Tyrone/Clarence/Daquan." As a general confirmation of Jake213_0's statement...I direct you to the nearest black community and the resulting fallout.

I regularly quote these numbers to my kids and ENSURE their understanding so my daughters do not become part of the problem. I tell my son that his "sperm" is a precious asset worth thousands of dollars, and if the wrong woman/women get unauthorized access it results in at least 21 disastrous years and frustration on his part.

When a black woman goes after a white guy, she starts to make herself more attractive. I see a lot of articles in newspapers and magazines in Kenya coaching black women on how to get a mzungu husband. Wouldn't this be an example of K-selection? And if so, wouldn't this mean that their decision whether to go K or r depends on local factors?

[–]Jake213_0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those are K-selective black women. A mere 25% of the black female population. However a vast majority have no interest in finding a long term mate.

I'm willing to bet most of the black girls who are K-selective don't really care about white men for their personality or looks, but merely for the fact that they believe all white men have money and hence want access to it.

[–]THEnimble_mongoose 44 points45 points  (23 children)

[–]electricspresident 9 points10 points  (21 children)

Sure that is true

But what about instinctively ... the calm centered guy is looked at as more confident tho? Like so many times on TRP it's been advised to 'hold frame' stand your ground and be chill ... yes some women do go for the arrogant shit starting douches but I find most go for good looking relaxed guys ...these guys do have a sense of don't fuck with me look but :$ ...I still think status counts a lot in this equation...

Imagine a low value guy getting all confrontational and shitt ..I bet people are gonna be like wat a creep and all, know wat I mean

[–]blackedoutfast 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Like so many times on TRP it's been advised to 'hold frame' stand your ground and be chill

a lot of guys on TRP don't really understand what "frame" really means and focus on one particular frame- the calm, confident, stoic guy. but there is an infinite number of different frames and the best one to use will vary depending on the particular situation and the other people involved.

you can just as easily hold a frame where you are a confrontational shit-stirrer. and frequently that will be the ideal frame to use.

the important thing is that you are the one creating the frame, and the frames you make are beneficial to you. what you want to avoid is falling into frames constructed by others or holding bad frames that hurt you.

[–]AwakenedSovereign 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is called state control. Always maneuver in such a way as to leave the most options available.

But also, you cannot control other people's actions. Being absolutely nonreactive and only engaging with the world on your terms is a pipedream. You can, however, have the confidence and skills necessary to react to any random shit correctly and still have a solid frame.

In fact I would argue the most difficult and most important times to hold frame are precisely when spontaneous forces leap out of nowhere at you. You often have zero time to think or analyze, and yet how our handle these situations undoubtedly has tremendous impact on your life.

[–]Helmet_Icicle 0 points1 point  (2 children)

But optimal frame is predicated upon summoning true and real self-confidence. If you have achieved that level of surety about yourself, why would you waste energy humoring someone's fallacies? When you can only sustain damage by accepting it in the first place, how is it worth addressing? Not even considering the low value of physical altercation, in what context would this be applied?

[–]blackedoutfast 1 point2 points  (1 child)

again, confidence helps you to establish a frame and get others to fall into it, but "super confident guy" is just one possible frame.

the frame is how other people intrepret a particular situation and the characters in it. by distorting their interpretation of a situation you are effectively distorting reality. there are always frames, normally they happen unconsciously and accidentally. but if you are aware of this process and you can actively create frames that distort reality to a much greater degree than normal.

framing a situation so people see you as a calm, confident, stoic alpha male works for a lot of situations, especially one-on-one with girls and in LTRs. and it's relatively easy to create that frame by having confidence and seeing yourself as a calm, confident, stoic, alpha male. and that frame is appealing to a lot of trad-con leaning guys on TRP because the quiet, stoic guy is a common alpha male archetype in a lot of western culture.

but there are other situations where different frames may be more effective. if you are in a loud bar/club with a lot of buzzed, high-energy people, sometimes trying to be the quiet stoic guy is a bad idea. i know a lot of dudes imagine themselves as a quiet, lone wolf, James Bond type dude sitting in the corner getting all the girls because they seem "mysterious" - but in the real world in a lot of those situations no one even notices those guys. there's so much noise and chaos and stimulation that a quiet stoic disappears into the background. it's the guy who is loud and talkative and confrontational who stands out and gets attention and owns the room.

[–]Helmet_Icicle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That doesn't really address the question. In that sort of context, some buzzed, high energy individual looking for confrontation is going to be lesser value for taking something someone else says seriously.

[–]grandaddychimp 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Being confrontational doesn't necessarily mean you're breaking frame and not being stoic or chill though. There's a difference between, say, starting an argument with someone and trying to get someone to fight you.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You can start shit and not get in a fight or altercation, human interactions are considerably more complex than beating the fuck out of each other. Start shit with her, be cocky, confrontational when it's warranted or useful, and confrontational doesn't only mean getting I some guys face and thriving down.

What are you guys, fucking 12? Ever lived in the adult world? Yeah people fight and kill in the adult world, but nothing like when you're kids.

[–]THEnimble_mongoose 8 points9 points  (1 child)

there's a fine line sometimes between holding a stoic frame and being a passive bitch allowing himself to get walked on.

Imagine a low value guy getting all confrontational and shitt ..I bet people are gonna be like wat a creep and all, know wat I mean

Women instinctively have a better understanding of this line and when it is crossed than we ourselves do.

We are still apes and our society is not so different from theirs.

You can learn a lot about the human sexual marketplace by studying chimp and gorilla society.

[–]RedOnArrival 3 points4 points  (0 children)

the "fine line" is whether you are taking action or being reactionary. frame is making your narrative everyone else's reality, and if you're reacting then you're naturally giving into another person's frame. starting shit can be good because it shows your status over another's, but only if it's done on your terms.

[–]fdylan23 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I watched a short video of how men act similarly to apes in terms of alpha and beta, the alpha men did not back down from confrontation, they hit it head on and won arguments, but I think shit starter is the wrong word. If there was a problem they fixed it, I'd someone disagreed they convinced them to agree, they sure as hell weren't looking to fight everyone though.

[–]EddieJonesRFU 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Someone needs to do a post on confrontation lol

[–]Satou4 14 points15 points  (8 children)

I'm really skeptical of confrontativeness. I've seen PUA videos where the confrontative guy ends up looking like a total douche, party pooper, while the aloof fun assertive guy style wins. This is because the confrontative guy is seen as having fewer options than the aloof guy, so the aloof guy indirectly wins points for social proof. He is seen as having more options.

Edit: maybe confrontation is good unless it is overshadowed by "don't take my girl" assertiveness.

[–]MaxwellGaine 4 points5 points  (4 children)

In that case the confrontativeness is diminishing social respect, canceling out attraction.

Now suppose the guy is confrontative to a threat to the perceived "tribe" or group, which causes him to gain social respective - massive multiplicative attraction spike.

Makes sense from an evolutionary perspective.

[–]Satou4 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Hm, could we take this further, then, and say that confrontativeness, while probably more attractive (according to this study), is actually a secondary trait to social respect?

The study says it controlled for each variable to study that variable's attractiveness. But if confrontativeness is contextually either good or bad, then it can't be primary. It needs to be split into separate types of confrontativeness.

In the case of defending the tribe, confronting the monster threatening them, I would call it bravery. In the case of asserting dominance when another man comes to take his girl, I would call that, at its essence, fear. Sure, there are ways to keep the girl around and maybe its a good thing to assert yourself to keep her in some cases. But in the bigger picture, isn't it better to shrug it off, knowing that you can attract another girl with little effort?

This probably relates to defending an investment and the sunk cost fallacy. The guy thinks he's entitled to the girl he attracted, because he spent time and effort attracting her. That may be true to an extent, but getting confrontational when another dude comes up to try to take her from him is anything but alpha. A confident man would probably just find it amusing.

There might be more theory to develop here, is why I'm commenting. Of course, over theorizing never helped anyone.

[–]MaxwellGaine 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Confrontation doesn't have to be overt, in a butthurt or physical way, which is where it usually would be unattractive (in most parts of today's society).

Dominance through top-notch social game over a guy coming to get your girl is extremely confrontational, but very attractive.

[–]Satou4 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I see. So in this case, the good side of confrontation is knowing the game and playing the game in such a way as to keep the girl. That's a subtle art. It's the difference between appearing to be a silent pushover and someone who gets what he wants effortlessly.

It's more like winning a debate than standing there waving your dick and puffing out your chest, though.

[–]MaxwellGaine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess so.

According to the study its still more attractive to be a dick waver than a pushover, so I guess the take away is: - get your cocks out - and practice intelligently AMOGing as well when you can.

Exactly what lifting makes you want to do, ding ding ding.

[–]mypasswordismud 2 points3 points  (2 children)

When a man breaks another man's frame, a confrontation has occurred and the man who won that confrontation looks sexy af. Biologically at least, from the woman's point of view, it doesn't really matter who wins.

[–]fuxdpus 139 points140 points  (66 children)

This is that whole "girls like assholes", "nice guys finish last" thing. Some people (read: women and "blue pill" types) get angry when you say it. They say you're whining. Nope. I'm just stating my observations.

This is why there are so many single mothers, and so many women in abusive relationships.

It is also probably why a lot of people are against alternative sexual outlets like porn, fapping, and prostitutes. Women want both alpha sperm (especially when they're young and fertile) and beta resources (especially when they're infertile, old, or single-mothery). But when the girls deny pussy to the betas, the betas naturally just find alternatives, get porn, jerk off, bang hookers, travel to Thailand, etc.

But remember, women have the dual mating strategy. Arrogant Alpha Douchebrag is unfaithful and will abandon them with baggage. Then they want to go back and find Beta Bob for a stable relationship. The problem is, Beta Bob doesn't even need her now-loose used up diseased pussy anymore. He's spent all those years jerking his dick to porn, fucking hookers, and maybe banging foreign 3rd world chicks. He's already solved his sexual needs problem.

So you have these women trying to trick, shame, and bully Beta Bobs into putting down the porn so they'll be horny enough to be lured into long boring sexless relationships with her and Chad or Tyrone's bastard children. Enter the anti-porn and no fap movement. Enter anti-prostitution campaigns. Enter attacks on sex tourism.

[–]grandaddychimp 47 points48 points  (2 children)

[–]fuxdpus 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I don't see anything wrong with porn. Attractive women aren't always available. I guess porn makes me less willing to settle for some ugly middle aged woman I'm not attracted to. But that's not a bad thing. All women come with high price tags and I'd rather save my resources for the best women I can get, instead of blowing my load on something subpar.

If a man gets caught up in a sexless dead bedroom relationship with one of Chad or Tyrone's aging throwaways, he's going to end up jacking off to porn anyway. Because his wife will have a "headache" every night.

Now if I have young beautiful women available sexually available to me, then I don't watch porn or jerk off at all (except on their stomachs/tits/asses/faces/mouths/etc.).

A lot of people don't understand that anything you do in moderation is usually fine. Don't be the person who jerks off 8 times a day, and doesn't bother to build a social life. That said, there is nothing wrong with occasionally handling your own business, when you are in a bit of a dry spell. Frankly, I've had some of my best success out on the town, when I've spanked it before I left the house. It's the "Loaded Gun" theory.

[–]VaginalFury 0 points1 point  (4 children)

[–]Canedude08 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The idea that when you haven't had an orgasm, and go out into public, that's the top thing on your mind. Women pick up on that, and that limits your effectiveness. It's similar to when you are in a relationship, women pick up on that, and are much more likely to hit on you, compared to when you are single.

[–]_MysticFox 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Virgins aren't unicorns. The virgins I know have kissed and blowed dozens of guys, less than the non-virgins even, as an outlet.

There have also been plenty of virgins who become dissatisfied and say that they would have liked to "explore," so they fuck things up in the marriage.

Any virgin girl past the age of high school is probably not mentally well. You have to expect to get with a chick who's been through LTRs her whole life, even if multiple. That would mean at least 3-4 dudes. That isn't too bad for LTR status honestly, especially if she's only done those things in a relationship.

Marriage isn't dead either. But it is ALL about partner count.

Marriage is dead and partner count means shit. It changes nothing to the fact that marriage is -EV. The contract that marriage constitutes is no longer fair but leans heavily towards one side.

A woman can cheat on her husband, initiate divorce and can still end up with half of his shit or more and even if she doesn't, the social security net will catch her and make her land softly.

There is absolutely zero risk involved for her, while as a man you are taking all the risk.

You're as deluded as the no fap guys. Marriage isn't dead and you only need find a girl with a low count? Holy fuck that's some Disney princess bullshit. Let me introduce you to my ex, who was a virgin until 21, raised in a good family, submissive, intelligent, educated, and only sucked and fucked my cock for 8 years. Why is she an ex wife? Because Awalt, no fucking exceptions. She went stupid and cheated with a poser, a wannabe, a loser who does stolen valor type bullshit like wearing fake dog tags and claiming to have been in the military when he wasn't. You meet this guy and the very last thing you'd ever think it's alpha male. Experienced girls saw through his bullshit easily, but she fell for it and fucked up her life. The most desperate fuck I've met. It's hilarious how badly she fucked up.

And you're thinking a virgin is the key. Fuck kid, you don't know shit about fuck.

Porn is bad for you? Since when? Oh since you tacked shame on it like some religious nut. Know Why kids like you have a problem with porn?

Women go for good genes when they're ovulating and beta resources the rest of the month. Same with short term versus long term relationships

Question about this statement. Are you saying that the interpretation of that experiment is that arrogant confrontational douchebags have a smaller window of attraction during the month? and that betas are preferred the rest of the month? If attractiveness is controlled.

If I'm understanding this correctly, short term mating is preferred for arrogant males but only for a short period of time, while timid traits are unkown to be preferred when or if at all yet.

Ovulation is monthly, so to interpret this as "fertile vs nonfertile" or young women versus older women looking for beta providers would be wrong, according to this experiment.

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 14 points15 points  (13 children)

They are preferred but only for use as utilities and cash dispensing machines, not for sex.

[–]russe1lwestbrook 9 points10 points  (11 children)

That makes sense, I'm just stuck on the point where people are making their own conclusion from this experiment saying "well that means girls prefer assholes hahaha we are right" which may very well be true, but coming from a researcher standpoint, and if people here even bothered to read the article instead of reading OP's conclusion (I do journal reviews daily at my job), the only conclusion you can get from this experiment is that women PREFER more dominant traits just prior to ovulation. Nothing else can be extrapolated from this experiment. The paper even says they don't mean beta traits are preferred outside of that window either, because this experiment did not test that. Just being highly critical here for discussion sake.

But if going by that logic we can form a a question and a hypothesis: How much less do women prefer alpha traits OUTSIDE that fertility window? Do betas have an equal chance, a slightly less chance, or even a better chance? Hypothesis would be: Women prefer beta male provider traits outside of fertility window.

Many people are jumping to too many conclusions early.

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 11 points12 points  (10 children)

Again you are using the word "prefer" to mean something other than what men think it means. Women "prefer" Alpha males to fuck. They do NOT prefer Beta males TO FUCK. They "prefer" Beta males to use for comfort, to sleep with naked, and to act horribly insulted and surprised that the Beta (who they "prefer") doesn't just want to "cuddle." The mean Beta just wanted me for sex.

They are using the word "prefer" in TWO DIFFERENT WAYS- one to say women "prefer" sex with Alpha men, especially at the time of Ovulation and another to say women "prefer" to be with Beta men (because they are largely safe from being pestered for sex) and for validation, goodies, and stuff.

[–]russe1lwestbrook 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Good point, I didn't think of the differing meanings.

Would it be a good idea to play the beta male who gets with an alpha widow(not marriage, but temporary)? You know what I mean, the scenarios where you see a pretty hot female gets dumped and she ends up dating a beta male for rebound/comfort, and posting on FB and IG about how he's so nice and understanding, but it doesn't last that long?

The more I read the more I observe a similarity in men's and women's ideal version of partner.

Men would want a 9-10, intelligent, loyal , honest, ambitious and fun woman.

Women would want a 185cm, 9 inch viking entrepreneur who is a faithful, arrogant, devoted and fun to be around husband.

Within both ideal scenarios, the traits are mutually exclusive, they can't coexist in the same person.

Both men and women are literally chasing a ghost whose traits are amplified by each new positive attribute they observe on every new partner

I mean the unicorns will exist, law of probability... But they'll be with the other unicorns, if even they can find one single other unicorn.

[–]Sotokun3000 6 points7 points  (1 child)

But that probability would be even closer to 0 since you have to multiply the individual probabilities. No different than ghost hunting

And thus the arrogant confrontational douchebag wins the girl while the warm faithful beta stays home and faps into his sock

No one "wins" the girl. The beta male ALSO gets sex, he gets it in different conditions from the alpha, but beta males still fuck inside of a relationship.

Alphas will fuck easily but only very damaged girls will even attempt to lock down or be in a relationship with an unstable alpha. You can clearly see this if you know alpha dudes, they get the biggest psychos on their back, obssessed with them.

Beta males aren't losers in the sense that TRP likes to think of them. What a lot of people here think of as beta is actually somehthing closer to an "omega" or semthing like that. Because beta males can also be alpha in another context, think Elon Musk for example, beta in the sexual world but overall an alpha, it is even hard to call a guy like that a beta male, but given context it fits him fine.

There is nothing wrong with exchanging money/resources/emotional availability for sex/companionship. This is how societies are built, this is arguably what every single on of us does in a relationship, this is actually the very definition of a male-female relationship.

You won't see that type of alpha inside of a relationship that isn't fucked-up in every sense of the word. Because guys like that are built for short-term, as you say it yourself. If you live in a jungle, in the sense of not having defined rules for relationship, as we live right now. You won't see anyone "winning" the girl, not the alpha or the beta, both of them will get half of a complete slut, I still think the alpha is "winning" as most of us probably think, but he doesn't win the girl, he might win easy sex, but never the girl.

I agree. But I find it strange that it seems to be okay to spend all your money on some post-wall middle aged western woman. But spending less money on a cute 18+ 3rd world girl is worse than the Holocaust. If you do that you are LITERALLY the DEVIL.

[–]103342 21 points22 points  (2 children)

The answer is easy. You just have to think: Who is complaining?

The ones complaining are the ones who have something to lose, western women. They are trying to sell something less valuable for a higher price. They simply can't compete at this point (although I honestly think that going for a 3rd world girl is a terrible idea) so they complain, or try to make it socially unacceptable.

[–]manslutalt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe twice a year. Two one night stands in a year isn't bad if you're not putting effort into getting laid and come across it, but having sex twice a year while you're in a committed relationship is fucking terrible. With the amount of shit you need to put up with, you're better of single and jerking.

[–]zayelion 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Remember that alpha beta are behaviors, not dogs in a pack. If you have no skill in managing that womans emotional ups and down with a good dose of confidence arrogance and moral dread then you shouldnt be in a relationship.

My understanding is they look for a man that's masculine traits flow with her own.

Yes. I question the premise of this whole post. What women are attracted to doesn't really change much over time.

You want to fuck a woman you've never fucked before? Make yourself the hot dude she wants to fuck.

You want to fuck a women you've fucked 1,000 times before? Make yourself the hot dude she wants to fuck.

[–]zayelion 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Christ. Yes if you want to fuck her then 1.) be attractive. Missing the follow up of 2.) Dont be not attractive. Which means the other 2 weeks out the month having actual social skills.

Im not saying dont lift, dont hone your game, dont build your self esteem. I am saying DO ALL THOSE THINGS IN ADDITION TO, have your finances in order, have your home in order, manage your kids so they show you respect, manage your social life, manage everything about yourself to the point shes an accessory.

You want to fuck her 3-4 weeks out the month and she only fuck you, not once a month after you find her in a bar or tinder, or what ever.

What I got out of the OP is more reason to track her cycle and when its up go full in to my hearts content, then toss in some dread and go back to managing my shit.

[–]grandaddychimp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think when he said "wins the girl" he just meant the douchebag is the one who fucks the girl. I don't think he literally meant the girl becomes "his". Because that would imply women are capable of being loyal, which they aren't because they would all either cheat or branch swing with the right guy under the right circumstances.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 38 points39 points  (6 children)


  • Women are psychopaths and desire most the male psychopaths.

  • Beta males love to be rigid, literal and honest and seek unicorns who they hope will also think that way.


It is the default condition to seek in the opposite sex our sameness.

Gender polarity tells us that the optimal mate is your opposite.


  • Masculinity + Femininity = Attraction


Androgyny and equality is a lie because sameness is not attractive.

All attraction is based on opposites.


[–]LibertyIsNotFree 4 points5 points  (5 children)

You even see this in homosexual relationships. One is the man, one is the woman. Doesn't matter whether they have an innie or an outie between their legs.

[–]manslutalt 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When I was young and clueless I hoped I would find a woman I could admire and look up to. Brave, sexy and competent like a movie heroine. It took me a while to realize how unrealistic that dream was. Maybe one day we'll get sex robots like that but until then I'll settle for easily replaced sexy submissive sluts.

[–]1OneRedYear 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Anyone you look up to has the ability to shit down on you. Look up to yourself and maybe God if you believe in him. The rest are just men and women made of the same shit. Some are better at somethings than others but none are worth more to me than me. I am worth the most. You should think that way about yourself.

confrontativeness: 3.13 arrogance: 2.64 muscularity: 1.85 faithfulness: -2.27

So women would rather fuck a rude, arrogant, unfaithful fat guy than a polite, humble, monogamous guy with abs.

Good to know.

Multiple people have been saying this while people try to bullshit they only need to lift.

[–]wisty 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lifting is a good idea, but for other reasons.

IMO, this sub has turned into a self-help sub, because a lot of the regulars are in long term relationships (or getting into short term relationships with sufficient frequency that they no longer need to up their game) and are now focused on other stuff.

[–]6h0zt 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I'm probably a bit late to the discussion here, but here goes nothing.

A bit of backstory: I've been 5'9", 145, soaking wet, since high school. The first girl I ever asked out was about 2 years ago. That being said, I'd been in committed relationships for about 10 years prior. (2 with one girl, 7+/- with the other.) They always just asked me out first. I turned 30 about a week ago. I've been single a little over 18 months, give or take.

I always had a nagging thought in my mind that I was either too fat or too shy or too fucking whatever to make a move on people I thought were attractive.

I went to a friend's bar right after my most recent (long distance) relationship ended. I saw a girl I had flirted with before, always innocently (or so I thought) and just asked her straight up "Why haven't we fucked yet?"

Given, I was 3 sheets to the wind, noncommittal, honestly didn't care of the response. She closed her tab and we went home together.

Within a month, I moved my number from 4 women to 15. It was liberating, but not necessarily fulfilling.

If you just want to hook up, this method works great. Don't expect to find your princess by being an asshole, though.

[–]1OneRedYear 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Without reading another line but the headline, ask yourself, who seems like they could fuck a bitch better? A guy with some muscle and aggressive behavior or a guy who is the opposite of that? That's about all the thinking that goes into that equation and look at all the fucking writing, over analyzing and hamstring in this thread. I haven't even read the thread, I just scrolled down and I know 90% of you overthought this shit which tells me you still got pills to swallow.

Society tends to kill these type of people off. So anyone who has this attitude and manages to survive has then proven them self as being strong in the eyes of the woman.

[–]fuxdpus 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Where I live they tend to talk shit, but they're not violent. So they don't usually get arrested or killed. In some other more violent cultures, young men assert masculine dominance in more "hands on" ways. They stab and shoot each other. It works in terms of reproductive success, cause they get young fertile females to breed with them. But they tend to end up dead or in prison.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I can tell when a girl is ovulating, they flirt, look at me with that fuck me look, and generally are easier to fuck. Most ofmy encounters have been ons or very short term, I'm not much of a keeper to most girls, but I'm a fun animal fuck.

[–]Kisstafer1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The only thing that never ceases to amaze me, is that women read this scientific evidence and actually DENY it, and continue with the charade that they want a nice guy.

This will be common knowledge to those who are already interacting with women in the DGAF attitude. But from personal experience its no way to secure a LTR, all my relationships based on arrogant/cocky/confident attitude have been thoroughly satisfying however end quite abruptly.

fwir, the pill cons her body into thinking that she is one month pregnant. A pregnant woman tends to prefer beta traits in a man. According to a doc on fatherhood, expectant fathers produce much more estrogen than normal.

If they decide to start a family, once the pill is out of her system, it's quite possible that she is no longer attracted to her beta traits partner.

ime, women care more about Outcome Independence in a man than most of the other stuff put together.

With OI, a man will find his true nature. To Thine Own Self Be True, it gets women wet.

If a man is obviously Outcome Dependent, then he might as well weigh 400lbs, she'll never see him as worth a fuck.
