I’ve said similar things before and others have said it well before me.
Don’t listen to advice on women by women.
It’s an easy mistake to make, because it seems harmless. I mean listening, paying attention to her needs, being romantic, being respectful; none of this seems obviously wrong. But as we have seen, it will get you friendzoned fast and hard.
So are woman hateful creatures giving bad advice to ruin men? By no means.
Thought experiment. Addend every piece of advice a woman gives you with the words, “…from a man I am very attracted to.” The Social Pathologist has it right, women are attracted to the strength and dominance of a bad boy. Unless a girl has gone wrong psychologically she is not usually attracted to the negative aspects (the lying, the cheating, the using). She’s just willing to forgive it because she is very attracted. She is telling you how she wishes a bad boy would treat her.
Never forget, for beautiful women, unattractive men don’t exist as males. Note that this is not a judgement, taking a leaf from Athol Kay, her female body agenda is to produce offspring that will survive and thrive; anything that looks like it can’t provide that is not nearly the same priority. Taking another leaf from Athol Kay, this is all advice for how women wish Alphas (Power) would provide more Beta (Comfort).
This is another reason why I just love women who demand masculinity from you. There are women out there who are very clear that they want a MAN, not a boy. This can be taken to extremes (there are some women for whom no shit test will ever validate, no matter how many times you pass, and they are genuinely to be pitied). Barring extremes, these women are extremely pleasant to be around, they make it far easier to be manly, because they aren’t constantly fighting benevolent demonstrations of strength. I think all of us like being men are on a heart level, so getting dividends from a woman for fulfilling your own deep, heart level, desire is tremendous fun.
