Is "TheRedPill" and PUA just bullshit, or does it actually work?
>>
I think there's some truth to redpill and they just couch it in edgy terms to feel all badass and darkly enlightened

What I do know is that my oneitis only ever started being attracted to me after I completely stopped giving a fuck and moved on with my life. Obviously that's just one data point but I think it jives with red pill ideals.

I don't fucking know though I'm retarded
>>
>>25919806
It doesn't work because no matter what you don't get what you should actually want. Even if you get pussy after the 5th or 6th time you have sex you realize it's not much better than masturbation and it definitely won't fill the roaring emptiness inside you. What makes relationships worthwhile is companionship which you can't have if you're thinking of the whole thing as a chess game.

Wanna amazing relationship based on caring, understanding, and compatibility between each other? Good fucking luck. Nobody had a Goddamn clue how that shit works.

Redpill is good to know the truth about the vapid whore that are woman, but you should give up your identity just to get pussy.

It's not worthwhile to get women, if you must act like a Chad and constantly playing mind games or domination with them.

Redpill works on all women. Even that shy nerdy girl you might see at a library of game club. Even if they won't admit it, all women want muscular, dominant alpha males who give no fucks and aren't afraid to keep them in check. It's why assholes get more pussy than nice guys (and not the meme Nice Guys (TM), but actual nice guys who do stuff without expecting return).
AWALT
>>
>>25919806
Some of it is worth it. All the bits pertaining to self improvement (whether that be personality wise in how you stop caring so hard or in the actual world) are worth taking in.

The attitude to women though is incredibly bitter, banging women left and right and playing mental games to make them as on edge as possible is just childish frankly, and strikes as being the attitude of a 13 year old who just had his first breakup. Disney relationships don't exist of course, but workable ones do. Not searching for that because of some shit a group of autismal nerds who've liftied for a bit tells you is silly.
>>
>>25919806
yes if you get advice from the right people. also women hate it because they don't want to give sex to the betas and pua helps betas get sex. if women are getting angry about it then it is doing something.
>>
>>25920308
>banging women left and right
You do realize that this is what women find attractive, right? Women love guys that a lot of other women also love as it indicates he has high status.
>>
>>25920375
Yes but >>25919926

I'm not going to pretend I'm some kind of Don Juan or whatever but following TRP at least made it considerably easier to bang women and 2bh It gets old quite quickly. Once it becomes something which isn't hard to get it loses all of the aura it used to have. It is indeed what they like but you stop caring about that almost entirely, or at least I did. All of the hate and tears and disappointment on their side stopped feeling good once I stopped being bitter about how no girls had cared about me in school and to this day I'd rather know a woman first and be impressed by her before banging her, it's far more mentally enjoyable that way.

this video pretty much sums it up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn1fLK_7mko

tldr: if you trick a girl into liking you by being someone you're not, she'll eventually realize that you aren't really like that and stop liking you. so it works for hooking up with SOME girls. a lot of girls are wise to this shit. but in terms of actual loneliness it doesn't help you at all
>>
>>25921027
So you have no personal experience (or very little) and are basing it off of some shit you read on the Internet. I admit most modern women are garbage, but it is cringey at the length Red Pillers go for their philosophy. Essentially male feminists

Bruh... STFU. This is delusion on a hole new level. Most "Chads" pull only club sluts, your shy bookworm type of girl right out ignores them, like you would ignore some Stacy disturbing you during your raid or w/e. Yeah, most girls like self-confident, good looking men. So what? Apparently, you arent one of them.

A clear case of wishful thinking a la "If I cant be a Chad by face, the maybe trying to copy his worldview makes me as succesful with sluts". Not girls or women, mind you, but sluts.

Nice coping mechanism. Do you think that shy bookworm guys would perfer an average girl over stacy? Then why would a nerdy girl perfer you over chad?

Halo effect. She will just pretend that the guy is smart just like all women who date badboys pretend like the guy is a gentle giant.
>>
>>25922645

Red Pill is about stop acting nice or hiding behind acting nice because you have no substance to your personality and achievements.

Have a couple of fights , standing up for yourself , install some positive narcsissm into yourself and judge who you really are and if you are worthy of attention from people at all , adjust things that make you un-cofomfortable and you made it

some of the red pill is common sense and applies to being more liked by people in general.
the rest of it is ironically based around having no self-confidence despite the fact RP is supposed to make you confident.

>>25922828
I have the opposite impression. The superficial stuff, like pick up lines, are awful and usually won't work unless delivered by Chad Thundercock himself. The evolutionary psychology stuff makes a lot of sense, and helped me navigate social circles, and helped me get a girlfriend a lot more than any other source of advice ever has.

My take on PUA: Read everything, and take everything with a grain of salt.
>>
>>25919806
>"TheRedPill"

The red pill is basically just feminism for men. It's just a bunch of whiny 40+ year old divorced faggots whining about injustice because they were stupid enough to waste their lives on the wrong women.

Ignore them and everything they say.

>PUA

The essense of PUA is fine. Basically the idea behind PUA is that if you're socially awesome, you'll get a girl, which is obviously true.

Even if you're not the best looking or the richest dude in town. So long as you're a fun loving party animal that everyone loves to be around and you're not literally deformed than you shouldn't have too much trouble getting girls.

PUA is simply learning to be more socially awesome.

getting swole and acting confident undoubtedly makes you more attractive

I don't think reading any of it will ever get you laid directly. I think out of everything that I've read, Mark Manson's 'Models' is the best work. It's quite well-written, given the subject matter, and really digs into a lot of areas that people on here could usea lot of help with.

I haven't really looked into TheRedPill stuff too much, but at least I can say that many of the field reports that I read on reddit were actually really thorough and constructive (especially the ones by TofuTofu). This was like five years ago, though, so things may well have changed.

It's partly true. Their ideas of self improvement, focusing on yourself and not being a doormat, every one of you can benefit from.

It gets so much hate because people think you have to become a manipulative twat. While partly true, you don't have to take that idea all the way. Just understand that women's minds work differently from ours. It's not necessarily a bad thing but it clashes with the notions we were taught from a young age.
>>
>>25919806
They are right on one thing for sure - that the unachievable is always the most attractive and most wanted.
>>
>>25919806
Do I really have to take the red pill and subscribe to their stuff if I don't wanna die unloved? I'd much rather be nice and caring and sensitive and loving (and a little cocky, I'll admit) rather than be a macho, dominant and powerful alpha male, but I'm starting to think that women literally only like that type of guy, and I'll have no choice to become what I don't want to become in order to be loved and have affection and companionship.
the red pill stuff is literally making be depressed because it is shattering my hopes and now i feel forced to go down a path i don't want to go down
>>
>>25924643
I'm not sure since I only have anecdotal evidence. But I tried being nice year after year and it never worked. Then I decided to give trp a try and quickly got some results. Just turning up your cockiness a bit might be an option though.

Yeah I think of it like religion really. You have some really good and helpful ideals bundled together. The problem is everyone who talks about whether good or bad is a fucking idiot. The point is
>get in good shape
>even though you are socially retarded you still need to be socially active to practice

>It's just a bunch of whiny 40+ year old divorced faggots whining about injustice because they were stupid enough to waste their lives on the wrong women.
The problem theredpill points out is that most men are completely oblivious as to what constitutes an acceptable partner in a woman. That, having been raised to think that women have certain privileges compared to men (no physical retaliation, special treatment) as well as naively thinking that unrealistic ideals like open communication could improve or repair their relationships. Not to mention, that even if a man in that position were aware of all these things, he's still limited by a major factor: desperation. The average man has far less sexual opportunities than the average woman, so he's obligated to stay with a potentially abusive or unstable partner because he's been lead to believe that being single and sexually frustrated is the worst thing that could happen to him.

The key difference between theredpill and feminism is that whereas feminism is redefining femininity from the traditional role, theredpill is simply trying to regain that masculinity back. You could point out all the ways a woman claims men and women have equal social roles, but that's simply not true. A man is supposed to take the initiative when courting a woman, be the breadwinner of his family, and take the responsibility of any failed marriages he may have had (while continuing to host new ones on his diminished income). Interestingly, feminism has empowered women to be able to express themselves more freely, yet men have stayed in their traditional role.

>Basically the idea behind PUA is that if you're socially awesome, you'll get a girl, which is obviously true.
PUA doesn't ever question why a man has to be some social butterfly to be attractive to the opposite sex. Surely, here of all places, you'd realize that not all men are capable of fulfilling or even attempting that role.
>>
PUA and inspirational talkers were a meme in my friend group for like a year or two.
Had to witness a phase where they awkwardly tried to "game" on the streets.
It was really infuriating how one of my friends thought he was a master of the female psyche by listening to PUA, how he tried to over analyze dumb meaningless details.
Hilariously the end result was that he became more awkward when approaching women, because when he tried to apply all the "techniques" he learned in the wild, it became one big spergy mess.

What bothered me even more was when they shifted the topic of conversation to one of the latest inspirational talks they heard. Had to listen to an hour of "believe in urself act like ur succesful meet rich pepl nevr give up chase ur dreams".
I had to talk one of my mates out of becoming a writer, this guy never read a book in his life and never did anything close to writing, not even fora at the age of 22. He was about to spend 5K on classes, made him dodge a bullet there.

TL;DR
Those PUA and inspirational talkers use the desperation of lonely and unsuccesful men to make money. They don't even help, they create a toxic mindset.
>>
>>25919926
theredpill doesn't claim to be a life manual, it's purely sexual strategy for men. Self improvement in areas like physical fitness or careers and education all advance this goal passively because they all help to make you a more attractive person as well as the fact the more effort you directly show in interacting with a woman, the more desperate and repellent you are.

theredpill was never made to give purpose to your life, it's for the sexually frustrated man to overcome the barriers imposed on him both socially and intimately.

>it definitely won't fill the roaring emptiness inside you.
Interestingly enough the people who most need it are the people who are empty inside. Because, those kinds of people who think that the validation they get from sex will add meaning to their life, are inherently unattractive to women. Because they have difficulty defining themselves, they're almost unable to give women the kind of emotional stimulus they want even if they are attractive. Ultimately, this is a problem with the person, not theredpill as any person whose sexually satisfied can agree with what you wrote. It's a personal journey where you realize that finding your identity was the most important thing you did, not having sex.

>What makes relationships worthwhile is companionship which you can't have if you're thinking of the whole thing as a chess game.
Again, no one is going to disagree that companionship isn't the ideal aspect of having a relationship. The problem is in knowing that the kind of person who is worth having that kind of emotional intimacy, and you wont be able to know unless you've been in enough relationships to tell. It'd be really great if you could share yourself with your partner and they'd reciprocate and the relationship would have few problems, but it's never that simple. People are flawed, you overvalue their feelings, they take yours for granted; someone cheats, or they just get bored of you. It's better if you don't take chances.

The Red Pill are pretty pathetic desu
I mean, don't get me wrong, I hate women
But I don't try to justify using shitty pseudoscience and underhanded manipulative techniques in order to get people to sleep with me

These people hate women, while dedicating so much of their time into the persual of women, while simultaneously, pretending they don't care about women

They are pathetic, they pretend they are being alpha but they are somehow worse than betas
>>
>>25921133
>tldr: if you trick a girl into liking you by being someone you're not, she'll eventually realize that you aren't really like that and stop liking you
Pretty sure TRP addresses this by explaining that women hate fake alphas even more than betas.

In my experience, most people who go into PUA are people who are trying to appear that they're trying/have scored women but can't muster any more effort than the token involvement of watching videos, reading articles, and listening to speeches. They're either afraid of actually approaching a woman (which ironically will cause them to redouble their research) or they don't actually care for the women, they just want to meet other people like them they can identify with as well as an inspirational role model. In that lens, it's no wonder why many of those people fit the image of stereotypical losers: because they're not actually trying.
>>
their goal is fast sex; their advice and worldview will be disproportionately influenced by BPD and low self-esteem girls and indeed select for those types

>>25919926
Oh jeez where do I start?

>It doesn't work because no matter what you don't get what you should actually want.

"No matter what." What if, presuming this is what you mean by 'what people should want' you are able to increase your chances of entering into a committed relationship? Crazy, I know, next I'll be telling you swimming in a pool increases your chances of not drowning at the beach.

Also, what's with this 'should' bullshit? What makes you a judge of what people 'should' want? Why should everyone want the same thing?

>Even if you get pussy after the 5th or 6th time you have sex you realize it's not much better than masturbation and it definitely won't fill the roaring emptiness inside you.

Oh so you're claiming omnipotence now? You know everyone feels empty and for what reasons? I've gotta tell you, having sex exactly seven times completely filled the emptiness inside me. Prove me wrong.

>What makes relationships worthwhile is companionship which you can't have if you're thinking of the whole thing as a chess game.

>what makes relationships worthwhile for me.

What's the morally relevant difference between someone being aware of what their words and emotions cause others to do and someone who still uses such language and emotions and inspires the same reaction but is unaware and lacks intention? Who's really disadvantaged?

The evopsych shit is complete nonsense, but they are correct in one aspect:
