As TRP continues to grow and expand and attract new men, so comes along blue pilled ideologies, principles and lifestyles that appear to be red pilled on the surface but upon deeper examination are actually blue pilled behaviors that keep men trapped in the pit of beta misery.
I have no idea why so many claim No Fap is a red pilled lifestyle. It seems like I can't go an hour here at TRP without seeing someone post about the great virtues of NoFap and to be circle jerked and upvoted in mass by other NoFap drones. NoFap is simply bro science combined with male shaming to make incels seem like they are accomplishing something while gaining all of these mythical benefits. You know who doesn't need NoFap? Non incels. Men with options and abundance mentality. They have sex. Regularly. And if they need to rub one out, they do it, because they don't pedestalize the act of masturbation and make it taboo.
The issue with NoFap isn't masturbation. NoFap drones tell you that masturbation is bad, its evil and it should be avoided. No, the issue is porn addiction. Porn addiction and masturbation are two separate issues. Defeating your porn addiction and stop viewing porn is noble and should be a cornerstone of any red pilled man. Porn is for losers. But there is nothing wrong with the act of masturbation. If you are regularly having sex, you should have no need to masturbate, but if you feel the need to rub one out, go ahead and do it without the porn. There is nothing wrong with this. It's normal. NoFap simply pedestalizes the act of masturbation, and causes it to be on your mind all the time regardless of whether or not you are doing so. Sound familiar?
MGTOW is another lifestyle that wrongly gets lumped in with TRP. In my opinion there is nothing more beta than MGTOW. MGTOW men are simply men who celebrate the fact they are incel rather than be shamed about it.
If you lead a successful red pilled life, you should have no problem attracting women and having options, and in turn a good sex life. Sex is normal - we men are hardwired to want to spread our seed as much as possible. Having sex with women is what we are wired to do. Denying yourself of that is going against your nature. Sex is great - especially sex with women who are into you. Why would you voluntarily want to walk away from that?
I always hear a lot of MGTOW men claim that they were very successful with women and had sex with 15 different HB10 super models every day, yet just went MGTOW because they were tired of women. I call bullshit. That's about as believable as a man walking away from a billion dollars because he "doesn't care about money". If you are successful sexually you will not want to walk away from it all. It takes time and effort to build up a successful sex life, why would a man want to walk away from it?
MGTOW is male hamstering for quitters who need a way to justify themselves and feel good about themselves for giving up. It has a nice ring to it and on the surface sounds like great justification for exiting the sexual marketplace. "Yeah! Fuck Women! MGTOW! I don't need women!" Are you trying to convince others, or yourself?
For some reason so many ignorant types think PUA and TRP are the same thing. They aren't.
I understand the ignorance from betas outside the community who routinely put down TRP by intermingling it with PUA. But there is no excuse for those of you within the community to think PUA is a red pilled behavior/lifestyle. And yet, this sub is flooded with PUA garbage all the time as if the two ideologies are the same.
The problem with PUA is that the mission is not yourself, the mission is women. Self improvement, lifting, etc. has no place in PUA. PUA still puts the women on the pedestal. The difference between PUA and TRP? Try this analogy: PUA is about doing what it takes to climb up the pedestal to get to her. TRP is about walking away from the pedestal and getting her to come down from the pedestal and follow you.
PUA is toxic because it allows men to tell themselves "There is nothing wrong with me, I am fine as I am, I don't have to lift, I don't have to eat right, I just need to do some voodoo psychology and that will allow me to bed women". The problem is that it doesn't make you desirable to women. You become desirable to women by self improvement and making yourself a better, masculine, confident man. If your mission is simply women(and that is the ultimate end game of PUA) than your success or failure is defined by women. Ultimately that is putting pussy on the pedestal. Your success or failure should be defined by yourself, not a woman.
Returning to Exes
Not a day goes by on AskTRP, or even here on the main sub, where some poster, obviously fishing for confirmation bias, posts about how he ran into his ex, or his ex hit him up, and then asks what to do. And right on cue every time the OP gets replies saying shit like "Plate her" or "Go have sex with her". Anyone who is truly red pilled knows the answer is actually "Go no contact and avoid at all costs" but that's not why these OP's post such questions. They post the questions looking for responses telling them to go after her, that way they can do it and justify it to themselves "Well TRP said to go after her, so by golly I will take their advice and do just that!!!" They post the questions LOOKING for that response and will ignore any response telling them to avoid her, because they still have oneitis and want to hamster up a reason to contact her again, hoping to gain the full faith and support of TRP in doing so.
Returning to exes is never wise, even if its just plating or a one night stand. You are better off 100% of the time cultivating new relationships and meeting new women. In a planet of 3.5 billion women, it is not red pilled to root through the garbage. It's oneitis.
I always hear guys on here tell others that they need to be on social media for "social proof". And that there is nothing wrong with hitting girls up on social media.
Social media takes the 80/20 rule and turns it into the 99/1 rule. Almost every guy on social media will be AMOGed. In order to have a social media profile work in your favor, you basically have to be in the Top 1% of Top 1% of men. Otherwise you are just another fish in the vast blue sea that won't stand out to women. Social media accounts won't generate attraction. You are better off simply deleting your accounts and not playing the game. Be the mysterious guy without it. Not having social media drives women nuts(in a good way). Besides, the more a woman learns about you, the less attracted she will be. Remain mysterious.
I also laugh at all the guys here on TRP who claim they message random women they have never met on social media all the time and have a lot of sex with these randoms. In order for that to be believable, I am guessing these women they end up bagging are ugly or land whales. Because any woman on social media who is an HB6 or better will have 100+ messages per day from thirsty men flooding her inbox. What makes you possibly believe you will stand out by also doing the same thing a hundred other men are doing and messaging her? Not only does she have 100 thirsty men messaging her per day on social media, she probably also has dozens of thirsty male options in real life that are willing to meet up with her and bang her on a moment's notice. So you are telling me you message these women out of nowhere, and out of all the male options she has, she picks the random social media stranger she has never met to hang out with and fuck? Yeah, no. These are the types of lies propagated around here that cause men to make the wrong decisions.
You are better off meeting women in person.
There is nothing wrong with bodyweight fitness, but it should only be a complete and total last resort for any man. I always see so many of you guys making hamstering excuses as to why you can't sack up and join a real gym and therefore have to do bodyweight fitness. 99% of the excuses are bullshit and are just hamstering excuses to not man up and lift heavy at a real gym. Yet, so many of you recommend it to people here. I always see AskTRP posts saying "Can I do calisthenics instead of weight lifting?" with a conga line of answers saying "Why of course you can!". My natural response to that is "Why calisthenics over weight lifting?" because most men have the option to do both.
Any man 16 years old or older has access to a gym. If you are in high school, play a sport at your school so you get access to it. If you are out of high school, get a job so you can pay a paltry gym membership. Seriously, I pay $20 a month for a damn good gym. Your bullshit excuses just don't hold water.
If you fall into that 1% of men who actually has a valid reason as to why you can't join a real gym with real weights, bodyweight fitness is fine for a temporary stop gap measure until you can join a real gym. Your #1 goal and priority then should be to put yourself in a situation to where you can join a real gym.
A lot of this will be controversial, but the 6 behaviors I listed are all pitfalls for men in their TRP journey and can send you down the wrong path.
