Let's run down the ones that she told us about. he just wanted sex. he told her when he got to the restaurant that he always splits the bill on the first date.
she went in anyway and went dutch 3. he told her he was married on the second date. another guy who just wanted to sleep with her. he stood her up. later called to say it was raining and he didn't feel up to going out. Amy is not alone. In fact, Amy is one of the lucky ones in the world of cyber dating, we have heard stories that are much, much worse! We have literally worked with thousands of men and women who have had similar experiences when it comes to dating online, but there are success stories, a lot of them.
After hearing about the good, the bad and the really bad, we think this is a way to turn online dating into a profitable alternative especially coming off the heels of the Washington Post article: Market for Romance Goes From Bullish to Sheepish Here it goes, feel free to pass along your Rules of the Keyboard as well. Avoid the time suckers.
This means if you are chatting with someone, don't wait until you are all out of keystrokes to meet in person. Get offline and in real time as quickly as possible. This is not to say you need to run out and meet the guy that night, but make sure it's no more than 10 days. Get off the computer and get dressed. Do not under any circumstances meet up the first night. Like "Amy" found out, a lot of men are online for sex. So, they will not be there to cyber chat the next day if you are a sure cyber romp.
Ask for a photo with a date on it. Superficial, we hope so. This avoids the nightmare of showing up to find someone who looks like your father's golf buddy ready to take you out. Do your diligence. Call him at work and at home once you have a date secured. Make sure things add up, so that you don't figure that out during appetizers. Move on. If there is no chemistry, move on. In "Amy's" case if a guy tells you that he is going to go dutch at the door and if this doesn't work for you don't try to save his feelings.
Be honest and move on. There is nothing worse than a two hour torture meal. Finally, give everyone a little break. The economy is not so good, but people are still looking for love and your date night doesn't need to break the bank. Spring is just around the corner, so dating online isn't a waste of time, but it's sure better if you go into it with a plan.

Special Projects Highline. HuffPost Personal Video Horoscopes. She must prove to you that she is a worthy companion worth more than just intercourse. Not the other way round. If you value yourself this should be obvious. Ultimately work on your career, your body, your confidence. All else is secondary.
Always hold your composure, never let anything shake you be vulnerable at times but never weak. Focus on holding conversations with women, if you new to this, and speaking to as many as possible if you get nervous around attractive women.
The fitness community and the pick-up artist dating community are the same. They are there to empty your wallet and make you more pathetic with women even after spending all your cash to so called learn the secrets. Hope this helps. In conclusion, always be real to yourself, you can pretend to be someone else, but sooner or later, the real you will come out.
If people are running away from you after just three weeks of knowing you after the facade falls away , then its your inner game that needs work. I know from a lifetime of experience and observation often learning the hard way, by errors that he is correct. Five or six pics maximum. I hope you give me a chance! Never be desperate for women nor sex. Thank you for the advice. But I no longer use that app or any other app for that matter.
thanks brett for the long post and it made a lot of sense to me.. the moment i sing a song that becomes famous, the opposite sex just comes forth… its like picking up low hanging ripe fruits from a tree….. I think we guys need to stop fawning over girls and let our status, our looks making the best of what we have , our talents and careers do the talking….
While I always felt the PUA community is mostly a bunch of bullocks, years ago I so much as confirmed the same from one credible source via David DeAngelo and his sexual communication series. Much of what I read was already something I did instinctively, but he did a rather fine job of explaining it well. One last important motif in this discussion, that needs repeating, is the importance of body language — aka biological signaling.
Namely, if you are confident, secure and strong it shows through your body language, not your words, and that very important to women. If any unnecessary motion is exhibited, or you tap your fingers or feet anxiously, you send off a negative vibe that women pick up instantly.
Once you spook them you can never earn their trust. It shows assertiveness and character, and prevents you from putting yourself in a position where you are validating yourself to her. Yea, I met my wife during the time after 3years immersed in a social environments such as College, Work full time, going to Bars 4 times a week and going to a Church that had house meetings once a week. Before all that I was on a huge learning curve of self confidence and realizing talking to women was not a difficult as a made it out to be.
Believe me it took some time and pushing myself out of my comfort zone consistently. After getting married, well that is a different story as you have to bring it up to a different level of emotional intelligence and Relational navigation. You may be right.
And quite science based. It was interviews with sex therapists, psychologists, and various other walks of life folks that was both interesting, educational and fun to listen to admittedly I did download the series for free so it never cost me anything. But I digress. This is pure certified organic horseshit. Looking back some were even outright douche bags. How might I ask did they do it? Once you are around such guys, you clearly realize from their success that much of what is considered gospel by the doubting crowd in this comments section is nothing more than erroneous sour grapes.
RedPill online community. But there is room for everyone in cyberspace, so live and let live, I guess. Another great read. Any thoughts on writing a book focused on life philosophy? It could be similar to articles you have been posting recently.
It would be nice to see your thoughts on various topics as people like you are very hard to come by. What phone would you advise for someone who doesnt want a smartphone? I want to buy, but in the process of looking for one.
Take fucking care of yourself. Talk to women. Most men are afraid of feel insecure talking to women. Those men are the ones who watch me while I talk to women at night, wishing they would have the balls to do that. I get rejected a fair ammount, but I get too a fair ammount of women who are ready to get fucked that night. Getting pussy is not hard, you just need 2 main things: look good and talk to women. So when you talk to them stop thinking in PUA mode believing you need to win them over or to make weird routines to appear cool or alpha.
This is my experience at bars and clubs. In any given night I know there are some women who go out to just have a good time with their friends those will reject me , while others go out expecting maybe in top of that to get fucked by a goodlooking and cool guy those will let me take the lead to my bedroom or theirs. The latter are the girls you need to find and talk to. And while you talk to women stop fucking around trying to make them laugh or trying to appear alpha all the night, you need to discover if they are the ones who want action that night.
Start by some chit chat and try to make a physical move try to kiss her or grab her hands , making sure she knows your intentions. This is the MOST genuine advice I would give any man who tells me how I do it. So yeah, to get muscles, just have really great genetics and make sure you get to the gym 3x a week.
They still get sore, tired, injured but nobody knows they lift. Oh the futility of it all. Basic math confounds all of this negative thinking and self-hatred.
There are over 7 billion people on earth now…if just. I find it almost unfathomable that there are that many frustrated men out there who are single and not getting any; am I to believe that several hundred roid monkeys and rich glamour boys with cash have utterly cornered the vaginal market, resigning And seriously Peter, who trains seriously for 5 years and has nothing to show for it?
In 5 years I went from a chub master to a chiseled Adonis with — dare I say — a great body that received many compliments. Anyone can built at least a decent physique with enough dedication and effort, and I did everything wrong training wise anyway in my first 5 years. Work on your looks. Take care of your looks, you will gains TONS of points.
Your body, your grooming, your clothing style, when you start taking caring of yourself you will start to get comments, then your confidence will skyrocket. That pessimistic attitude is fucking killing your chances. I have just got my heart broken a couplw of hours back despite following so suave secrets to attracting women I read ton of their stuff for years did everything by the book and guess what the last 6 women I met lied to me,dumped me which tore me apart.
as much as people hate this guy the Truth Seeker, everything he post is on point, money matters,looks matters, social status matters it sad to admit this but if you did everything by the book and still fail then you bound to ask if the world is safe place to live in. Your advice means nothing to average and below men. Most average guys who change that will be above average. First of all, most females in the US are fat. Supply and demand. That means that there is massive competition for the few young, attractive ones.
Most men have already thought about working out or trying to look better. Any substantial muscle gain will take years and probably not be too impressive.
Read the site or try to troll some other people. Third Another percentage of these women are black and very few men of any race find black women attractive citing dating site surveys and FBI crime stats on rape.
The black men are going after the white women and so is everyone else. So if you are a white man…tough luck. You make valid points. However I will say this. I am a white male turning Believe me the white girls here know it. The game here is tight. My friends and I always look out for foreigners because we know how easy they are compared to local girls. Its not uncommon for there to be more guys to girls ratio in some of the local bars where my friends and I go. However I have still gotten some action and a few numbers even while competing for one of the only few hot white girls in the bar at times.
Because I just kept trying and approaching. Persistence and perseverance. If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it. No matter the odds. I am trying to illustrate that even against all odds you can still succeed.
The right mindset is key however. Your experience alone in SA has proven and exposed that much of the BS on this site, spewed by the naysayers, is pure sour grapes. You know what separates them from you? You tried because you believe in yourself, and you had success. And I get so pissed off whenever someone brings the race card into the game, as if being white now is some sort of inherent disadvantage.
He came to the US with nothing and barely spoke English, now he has a family in an upscale neighborhood, and owns a marvelous 4, sq foot home, along with a successful mini-mart business with numerous stores. What next, do we drop our drawers and compare wankers? And despite your deep forensic examination and analysis of the mating game, I noticed you still evaded my simple question: How did I pull it off and hit the jackpot?
How did so many guys I know — most of whom were white, not so great looking and had hardly any serious money to their name — able to pull to pull it off? Were they all the statistical 85 year old smoker and still alive anomaly? The funny thing is one of them was actually an ASIAN guy I went to college with, who literally had a harem of beautiful young women of every race and background. Yet here I set at the opposite end of the bar in great shape, very financially successful, and married to the perfect for me anyway woman.
Funny how that works. Attitude is everything my friend. Coupled with the a clean cut image and the right attitude and he will go far if he wants it bad enough. Message being that I came from nothing, was even fat as a young man, and needed to work on my presentation growing up into adulthood.
I did, and succeeded on all venues. And if I can do it, so can just about everyone. Average dudes are unattractive to average females. And who would be attracted to anyone out of shape with no aspirations, personally and professionally?
I though we were talking about men who have their act together. Most young year old fertile women are not fat. In fact, by comparison with males in a similar age group, they are usually in much better shape here in the US.
I think your figures are skewed based on older single and married women. As for Asian women, you have a partial point. Some are just attracted to that particular race, simple as that. And Asian girls view a white man as social stature catch; they see them as ideal for mates because they consider them at the top of the social food chain of success.
What race are most white women married to? As a man your desirability goes way past the age of 20, in fact in only goes higher the longer you take care of yourself. The cougar club is largely irrelevant in scale by comparison. And everyday a new crop of girls hits 18, 21, 25…your supply only goes up. I am in very good shape compared to the average guy. This is the truth, anything else is silly games.
Every average guy has tried dressing nice, working out and talking to girls. Hey truth seeker!! Since i know the truth about life i cant sleep, i have insomnio. Any advice for better sleep? sory for my bad english, its not my native language, like you. How can i improve my english? Distract yourself. Stop reading online. Do something physical — like extra working out, manual labor, ride a bicycle, run — just fatigue your system.
For example I needed 10 days of swiping and there were no more girls around girls using tinder in million city. And I had like matches which is very good for a man.
Now tinder is super popular, a lot of guys are paying for it. I think this is a bit of the mark but i am from the UK, most women have on there profile not message them if ou have a picture where your body is on the, as you know steroids are legal in the UK and they have an association that men what use them are posers or love them self too much. they are so used to being fawned over that when they meet someone who gives them a take it or leave it attitude you will see the cogs turning round in there head if you look at there eyes.
im quite aggresive with other males and will get into disputes and physical altercations often , especially when i was younger this almost certainly has helped to attract women.
I am quite quick mentally , even though my spelling may not show it and being the centre of attention in a group has helped many times , other males naturally seem to fall in line around me , now friends tell me they felt very uneasy around me for a long time, i was a professional kick boxer for a time and i think that worried other males, even though i was perfect polite and softly spoken.
start not caring , and women will want to know more about you, chase them and fill them full of compliments they will soon get sick and move on to the next mug. Just like most muscle men are fake so are the most beautiful women, they both have defective souls. These women have shallow souls which spur them to make themselves pretty, so she resorts to boob jobs, nose jobs, bum implants, hair extensions etc…the list is endless.
Plastic surgery woman is the norm these days, the number of fake boobs I have groped is a testament to that! This is a common occurrence in the west due to consumerism. The answer is because without that facade they have no confidence…they are not REAL.
One more thing my natty comrades! When you see a fake natty surrounded by beautiful ladies, despair not…like I used to…in another age. Wow, this post just ended up in how to get laid and manipulating women to get to that point.
Sex is great, but having the companionship I get from my Wife beats all the days being the lone ranger trying to get some.
Focus on compound movements a couple of days and do some cardio? Eat good for abs and have less calories? Push pull? Full body? How many days a week? It depends Rick. Do you just want to look like that? Or do you want to have the strength to German suplex a resisiting 80kg male? Mon: Front squats 5×5 Skipping 15 min Power clean 3×3 Optional: Romanian Deadlift 3× Tue: Pull-ups 5x max Dumbbell row 3×8 Push-ups 3x failure Skipping 15 min.
Thurs: Trap-bar deadlift 5×8 Skipping 15 min Hang clean 3×5 Optional: Bulgarian split squats 3×8. Fri: Parallel dips 5x max Overhead press 3×8 Neutral-grip Pull-up 3x max Skipping 15 min.
You want to do some cardio everyday in order to get fit like these guys and increase your metabolic rate to burn more calories. They are extremely fit. The power and hang clean are to build and incorporate some explosive strength. While the front squat and trap deadlift will give you strong legs for lifting another man up and slamming him to the mat and build explosive strength. Putting both the power clean and the hang clean after 15 minutes of skipping will work your cardio and emulate lifting another fighter when you already tired.
But most women do end up married or in long term relationships with someone around their own looks level. Leave mystery in your photo. instead MAX out style and face, use style choices to hide your flaws the way girls do. When you match with a girl, respond right away hot girls will get s of matches and push for a meetup or date as soon as possible after a few lines are exchanged.
That body is impossible for most guys even if they use steroids. I simply have to share the success story of a personal friend, as it relates to the present conversation:. This Greek man I know, who immigrated from Crete over 30 years ago, was born into a poor family, and never had much either him or his family in the way of monetary success back home. As a young man, he immigrated to the US, where he still pursed the passion and love he had growing up as a boy back home: fishing.
Transplanted in the northeastern seaboard of the United States, he still fished recreationally every chance he got from the shore, where he made many new friends, primarily other novice as well as seasoned fishermen. Through them he got to know the best anglers in the area, and then he joined fishing clubs, he tagged along on fishing trips, until he got his very own boat.
He caught many fish, and bigger fish, and even started winning tournaments. Word got out. Business became better and better, and then became great. He made money and reinvested in his enterprise, updating gear and electronics, upgrading outboards and fishing equipment, make chartering and commercial fishing not only his passion but his one and only full-time job.
His clientele rose so high that he is booked solid every season, almost every single day from May through November, year in and year out, for various fishing excursions from folks from across the country — and from across the globe. People actually fly in, sometimes stay at his home, and fish with him for weeks on end. Many post these trips on social media, further promoting him and his business.
This man does trade shows year round, is sponsored by various tackle manufacturers, and is even paid to advertise their products as decals on his vessel. Many fish with him to test and refine new rods, reels, and terminal tackle for specific fisheries. He is now one of the best fisherman along the entire east coast, and is known by everyone in the inner circle of sport fishing on a first name basis.
OMG, truthseeker is now a guru dealing his views to resentfull younglings… we all going to do it bruh. It is naive to attach sentimental value to anything. Life is just a big race and the largest beauty contest ever. We, young men of have been born in an age where how we were brought up is vastly different to reality and that is why it is so difficult for many of us, myself included at times.
Men without extreme beauty, money, or status should just give up on finding love and happiness. There is no point in pursuing that which will never be fulfilled. In many ways I am a prisoner to myself, I was raised valuing life, love, and companionship.
As I do this I understand many aspects of life on a much deeper level. I have no regrets and no hopes, I just move forward and observe. But deep within me I am starting to become power hungry and emotionless. I asked for the truth and I got it, but I never would have thought this would be the outcome.
Continue writing TruthMan. Regarding life in general we live in a day and age where height is utterly critical for males, if you are short to very short you are going to have to work 5 times harder to achieve probably half the results and you are going to be in for a long haul life with A LOT of bumps.
Derek Jeter, the NY Yankees shortstop ,or whatever position was an infamous womanizer. He banged lots of dime pieces.
Yes, hos looks, money. Of course, lifting never hurt anyone either. I have never heard any girl day they prefer their boyfriend with a dad bod…. This article so litterally reeks of frustration it could have been written by an incel the emphasis on aesthetics, jaw lines, social status and how women are just greedy snakes gave you up.
Sure the app promises instant sex spoiler: nobody truly believes that and what you get is… slow paced, classical romance. I actively used the app two weeks. Sometime you just have to cut on the sanctimonious, condescending bullshit.
Well maybe you can have 5 matches a week an average looking woman could have probably 30 to 50 matches. I think that this apps, are just social experiment, they have created legions of idiots. For most men. Most women that are descent looking: have become extreme narcissistic.
Just too many low life loser disgusting women everywhere nowadays with tattoos all over their bodies which makes them real total freaks to begin with.
Woman here. Women are very influenced by looks. This is true. Saying they just care about money or social status is not accurate. So when it comes to online sites, your picture is very important. Posting a bad pic or only a far-away pic will not get you noticed. So a face-pic that shows a chubby face even a little bit , will get you overlooked. Note: Being fit is good. Big muscles are not necessary. Do write something interesting. Anything like that will just be seen as being a dick and women will avoid.
Women like interesting men — they do not like jerks. On the contrary, if you write things that make you seem decent, caring, high-integrity, loyal, thoughtful, etc, it is a plus.
We will call her Amy. She has been on one of the popular online dating sites for about six months and has had plenty of dates. Let's run down the ones that she told us about. he just wanted sex. he told her when he got to the restaurant that he always splits the bill on the first date. she went in anyway and went dutch 3. he told her he was married on the second date. another guy who just wanted to sleep with her. he stood her up. later called to say it was raining and he didn't feel up to going out.
