They will look at you weird. (On IOIs)

This post may be obvious to some, but it'll be useful for some newbies on their journey. I sure wish someone had mentioned something like this to me a while back.

I got hot, but didn't realize it for a long time.

It takes a while to get hot. It won't happen overnight. It will come in stages. If you're lifting (like you should be), you won't really notice the change in your body, as you're constantly scrutinizing yourself in the mirror. You'll always be forever small.

However, friends and family will. One day someone you haven't seen in a while will come up to you and say something like "wow you've really changed!" or "you lost a lot of weight dude well done" or "damn your arms got huge have you been working out?". You'll be genuinely surprised; you won't have noticed the drastic changes because you'll be so focused on the increments.

And girls will treat you better. I guarantee you. Women might "accidentally" touch you more, they will look at you different, they may hug you when greeting when they've never done that before.

While working out presents incremental changes; fixing your style or haircut will be a drastic change that people are sure to notice straight away. Some may even make fun of you for it at first. Don't stress too much about it; a lot of people are weirded out and uncomfortable with drastic change. They have this mental image in their heads that they've assigned to you, a caricature per se, and when you break through that image and present yourself as something different, their reality is flipped on it's head and they may be a bit befuddled at first. That's normal, they quickly acclimatize again and get used to the new you. It happens quicker than you think. Don't stress too much about it.

But the real clincher is the looks you get from women. They check you out. All the time. All the hot guys on this sub know what I mean. If you don't know what I mean, it's because you haven't reached that stage of attractive yet. I'm going to explain what happened to me:

Even though I've been lifting for at least a year now, I'm still pretty slim. The combination of doing a strength program over hypertrophy, being tall, not eating enough consistently and having an albatross wingspan means my skinny arms and weak chest really give away how beta I used to be. I can still be bigger, and that's the plan.

However, I fixed my posture. I started dressing for my age (Don't just dress well. Dress for your age). I got a decent haircut and I take care of my hair properly. I got some shades that suit the shape of my face. I started shaving every day. I wear cologne.

One day I was commuting to school and I noticed a woman was giving me a weird look. When I saw her looking at me she snapped away. I was confused. Was there something on my face. Did I have a booger? Did I just look weird?

Being beta and self conscious I went to the bathrooms before my lecture to make sure there wasn't anything in my teeth or whatever.

On the way back, some teenage girls kept glancing at me. One turned around to look and I caught her. Her friends laughed.

I went home that day dejected, were those girls making fun of me because I looked stupid?

The next day I was sitting on the train and some HB7 looks at me. Then looks away. Then looks again. She was staring me down angrily. I remember thinking "what's this bitches problem".

Another did the same thing, fixed her hair when I met eyes with her. I looked away quickly. "Damn, can't have her thinking that I'm stare-raping her".

This kept happening, for a long time. I seriously went at least a few months wondering why all these women were looking at me weird on my commute to and from school. Why did they keep staring at me? Maybe I just had a fucked up face. Maybe I dressed weird? Smelt weird? Gave off a weird vibe? I was so used to being that weird nerd kid that I assumed every time someone looked at me they were making fun of me.

And then one day I had a pretty obvious eye opener. A very effeminate camp man stared me down on the tube. He wasn't even shy about it. When I looked at him again, he smiled.

"Why did he smile?". I realized he was the first man I'd found who was looking at me with those weird "scared" eyes that all the girls were giving me. I thought I was scaring those girls cos I looked, acted or smelt weird.

But no other men were staring me down on the train. I couldn't remember a single time a man looked at me weird on the tube like the way the women were. If I looked, acted or smelt weird, surely I'd be getting death stares from all genders?

And bam, that's when I realised. Maybe they're checking me out.

The "imposter syndrome" post recently got me to write this up, because really, that's what I was feeling. I couldn't for the life of me notice that I was being checked out, because I never considered myself hot. I never even realized that I'd GOT hot; but of course it had to happen eventually. I was actively working on improving my appearance after all. I just never really internalized that at one stage I actually would reach "attractive". Eventually I was going to get to a stage where random strangers on the street were going to check me out. I just hadn't realized I'd hit that stage.

And from there all the previous encounters with women on the train made sense to me. They were all checking me out.

"No way", I thought. "There's no way they can be that blatant".

And then I started looking out for it. They do it ALL the time. On the train, at the library, at the coffeeshop. Women check me out CONSTANTLY now. I couldn't believe it. I've never had this much attention from random women before in my life. I've never been validated so much by strangers. Is this what it's like to be a pretty girl?

Once I started noticing it, I learnt to look out for it, and now I notice it more. On every commute I take there will be at least 3 or 4 women who give me the eye. They look at me, look away, and then look at me again. This is an IOI.

If they touch or fix their clothes or hair straight after seeing you, it means they want your dick. Almost certainly. A woman who notices an attractive guy will almost straight away groom herself to ensure she's looking at her prettiest. If you see a girl across the bar/cafe or whatever fix her hair after looking at you, you have been given a free pass to approach. I have never been had a rejected approach after hitting on a girl who fixed her hair after staring me down.

I know it's a sure thing because I realized I did it to. If I saw a hot girl I'd fix my hair quick while she wasn't looking. Women are the same.

I read in a comment on here a while back that if you catch eyes with a girl, don't be the first to look away. It's true. If you look away first it signals how beta you are. In almost all cases the girl will look away first. Some snap straight away. If she stares you down and you end up playing chicken it means you've got a feisty one.

If she looks away and then looks back at you and your eyes are still firmly locked on her, she will melt. It's a sure technique to framing yourself as alpha before you even open your mouth. You know what you want and you're looking at it, you won't look away because you're scared of her. She'll notice you checking her out and her panties will wet.

So, for those guys out there that are getting stared down; you're getting IOIs. If a girl you're checking out sees you and fixes her hair or clothes. You're getting IOIs. If she looks at you, looks away and then looks back at you, you're getting IOIs.

And no matter how you hamster it away to your beta self, it's becuase she thinks you're hot. You might not think so, you might still see an ugly nerd in the mirror, but the women who are checking you out don't. Don't let imposter syndrome stop you from apporaching girls that are very obviously sending you cues; you're wasting oppurtunities. Use these obvious cues to break through approach anxiety; these girls are bascially begging you to talk to them.

Or you could just have something on your face.

Lessons Learned

  • You will become attractive before you yourself realize you've done so

  • If women are staring at you in public places, you're being checked out. Even if you don't think so.

  • If you're being checked out, it's becuase you're hot. Even if you don't think so.

  • Women who groom themselves after seeing you are sending IOIs

  • Never be the first to look away when you look eyes with a girl

  • If she's constantly looking at you don't waste the opportunity and go fucking talk to her

Real talk, real IOIs are often WAY more subtle than you'd expect.

  • Instead of staring at you, a girl will desperately try NOT to make eye contact. She's so nervous and filled with attraction she simultaneously wants and yet dreads your attention

  • Girls negging guys. This is usually a sign of an older woman that's been banged out by alphas and has lost or just lacks a lot of her socialization skills.

  • Women and gay men will touch you WAY more. Like they get more physically aggressive and invade your personal space.

  • The weirdest thing that happens when you become attractive is that many women won't be your friend anymore. They're no longer interested in you for moral support; they have other beta males to do that. Weirdly, women will respect your time and energy more. This is because they're trying to lay you. However women get discouraged SUPER quickly, so you have to either move super quick or super slow.

Great point, and one caveat to keep in mind is the old saying: "hell hath no fury like a scorned woman".

Women do not typically handle rejection well, especially the higher they appraise themselves. If she thinks highly of herself (i.e. Borderline to full-blown narcissist), outright offers you her pussy, and you friendzone her - hah! Prepare yourself for the reckoning..

18 upvotesHeathcliff-- [OP]3 years ago

There was this one girl who was into me and I had no idea. No idea at all. She was hanging out with me, sending me IOIs, making it super obvious. I didn't see it. I thought she was being super friendly.

One day on the bus to a club while we were all drunk she cussed me out hard in front of all our friends. Screaming at me "I hate you I hate you I hate you".

I had no idea why she was doing this. Still even after that, it took me months to realise "damn, she liked me. Fuck".

Girls get super angry when they're rejected. Guys are too stupid to notice hints.

Meh. I'd say you dodged a bullet if she acted so psychotic.

17 upvotesRamboDonkey3 years ago

I agree with this. Women will usually play their cards fairly close to their chest when they do not know you well. If unknown women are making extended eye contact from afar, without really trying to hide it, then you are encroaching upon chad territory. What will often happen instead, is that women in your social circle will begin to just be around you a lot, and drop vague hints, along with perhaps the occasional overt signal. They may start doing favours for you, or suddenly shit test you here and there. IOIs are useful, but just be mindful that women can be very cat-and-mouse about this sort of thing. The women that make solid eye contact from the outset, interspersed with preening behaviours, probably like you so much that you don't even particularly need game.

I don't agree on the friendship part though. I find that women who are not interested will often not proactively make efforts to be friends with you. Women who have a medium level of interest may proactively creep into your friend zone in some ways, perhaps sizing you up. Women with high interest will send the more obvious signals early on, such as sly touching or eye gazing.

Women won't be your friend...

This struck me, I've noticed this and wondered why women will be very respectful and complimentary and then not even respond to simple friendly gestures.

Also, the fickleness of female attraction is incredible. So many times I have not been in a position to return female advances due to circumstances or other variables. That attraction turns to disdain, apathy, and even loathing with blinding speed.

Well, consider how hurt you've felt when a girl rejected you. Girls are just way more likely to feel rejected just out of regular female insecurity. It's fairly immature. The best remediation is just to start gaming them slowly.

1 upvotesMAWL_SC3 years ago

Sure, but as a man, I don't just toss aside that attraction. Sometimes she's a bitch, sometimes I want to strangle her, but I still want to pound her. Despite my disdain. With women it's different.

Haha. At social gatherings my ex would literally RUN to the orbiters she was not attracted to. Giving them hugs, kisses, even tease them with rubbing her boobs against them (by accident) and stuff like that. Then when a guy that she was attracted to came close, she completely froze up. Total black out. She couldn't get one word out of her mouth.
So funny, I see a variation of this all the time now. Girl I know is attracted to me hugs everyone around when she comes to a social gathering, but me.

What I really need to know is how do I differentiate between "girls trying not to give eye contact" cause they are shy and like you or "girls that are avoiding eye contact cause they think you're a creep and want you to stop looking at them!!??

5 upvotesjcromero3 years ago

Women biologically have a huge peripheral range of eyesight. Typically if they like you they'll keep you in their peripheral line of sight.

If they don't like you they'll usually turn away from you completely, and have very closed off body language.

Also, here's a crib sheet of eye contact rules.

1 upvotespisspoordecisions3 years ago

Your last point is so true. All through high school and my freshman year of college I had tons of girls I considered close friends, probably more than my guy friends. Then I joined a fraternity, upped my status, banged a bunch of those girls, and barely talk to any of them anymore...I don't even have close friends that are girls now.

1 upvotesmaxbrooksmacbook3 years ago

I've noticed girls at my corporate job always see me in the hallway and then look down and never look back up at me as they walk by.

I'm from the Midwest so I expect a certain level of friendliness even from strangers walking by. On the east coast I get none of that.

It's fairly disconcerting

Building relationships out on the east coast just takes time and a certain level of assertiveness. People are just super isolated from one another.

eat calorie deficit while lifting. If you are a noob/haven't trained consistently for a long time. You will get bigger while getting leaner.

Find maintenance calories reduce calories by 300-500 lift 3-5x a week. PROFIT !!!

3 upvotesLuckyluke233 years ago

i lift like 3 times a week now, I also do cardio some times too ( just for fun really)

say i eat 2.5k calories now, if i drop that down to say 1.8 - 2k would that help? i've been going like 6 months now and I've had no weight change ( though i know i need to work on my diet)

7 upvotesACE-JHN3 years ago

It might help but tracking is the only way to find out. weigh yourself everyday for a week while eating those calories then take the average of 7 days. To keep losing weight either increase activity or decrease calories. I suggest reading some stuff by eric helms and the 3dmj team. I know a lot of info can be found for free online, but the muscle and nutrition pyramid books have been a godsend, literally answered all my questions. Now its all about applying (much easier knowing that i am going in the right direction). Check out the New rules of lifting - 6 moves, my friend plays football and he gained a lot of size and strength following that, my other friend is into oldschool routines and he did the body for life routine from the book and got insane results in a year lost 50 lbs and then lean bulked for 15 lbs. I am on the back to fit program because i am coming from numerous injuries to my knee and shoulder. This was a rant, but i just love this fitness shit now.

4 upvotesThevoleman3 years ago

Calories in, calories out. You're just not tracking your diet, if you do and you're actually at a 500 cal deficit, you will lose weight.

1 upvotesbyers189013 years ago

I'd say love ok at the 4 Hour Body man. Nothing to do with number of calories just the kinda of calories.

Depends where you are at though I suppose. Just starting out though you def want to go 6 days on and 1 day overfeeding to trick your homeostatsis so it doesn't get used to x cal intake. Bc then it will ramp down fat burning an you plateau.

1 upvotesdblink3 years ago

It absolutely will help. 500 daily calorie defecit comes to 90k average over 6 months. With 3500 calories per pound of fat, that's 25 pounds lost. Just remember to adjust your intake as you lose, or your slowly decreasing maintenance calories amount will meet your current intake.

4 upvotesDon_Keydick3 years ago

Lifting can be used to burn fat and build muscle, but you should focus more on your nutrition. Look up HIIT cardio and cardio acceleration.

High Intensity Interval Training is a godsend. If not in the mood for that much dedication look into the kettlebell swing.

8 upvotesGunsGermsAndSteel3 years ago

This is a total derail, but I'll answer: Lift.

You can lose fat while gaining muscle. It will happen slowly, but it's possible.

Focus on high-protein meals, with not a lot of sugar or starch.

Basically just eat better in general, be active, lift weight, and you will lose fat.

I have gained about 30 pounds in the last year while significantly lowering body fat percentage. I put on a ton of muscle. I look very different from a year ago.

0 upvotesvagbutters3 years ago

You can lose fat while gaining muscle. It will happen slowly, but it's possible.

Is this accurate? I've read from numerous sources that building muscle is only possible at a caloric surplus. I know, for sure, that building strength while lifting at a caloric deficit is possible, however.

1 upvoteslegedu3 years ago

It's possible. Super high protein diet coupled with a slight calorie deficit can do it. Meal timing becomes way more important and there isn't a lot of room for error in your diet.

In other words it’s pointless and a waste of time, cutting if you’re fat down to a low bf% and then going on a lean bulk will give much faster results and it’s a lot easier.

2 upvotesRedPistola3 years ago

It'll decrease body fat. Just don't eat an excess of calories when you start. Cut, then bulk.

3 upvotesgrewapair3 years ago

The answer to your question is generally no. Lifting usually increases appetite, far in excess of the calories burned, and makes it difficult to lose weight.

Plan on burning no more than about 200 calories per hour lifting. You'll usually increase eating by more than that when you lift.

What many people do is to lift, gain a little weight ( the "Bulk" phase) while gaining strength and therefore muscle, then keep lifting while you struggle to lose that weight and more, while limiting or even reversing your strength gains by continuing to lift, but probably not increasing, and possibly even decreasing what you can lift (the "Cut" phase).

So you do them one after the other until you hit the physique you want. You typically do not do a bulk or cut for very long, until you have the body you want, at which point you really try to do neither.

So you might go 4 weeks of bulking and 3 weeks of cutting, then repeat.

I'm on a ketogenic diet with IF. I'll get ~1500 calories/day (trying to cut!) and I'll have my last meal by 5 pm. I work out (rock climbing then lifting) for a few hours and then bed. I don't eat again until 8 a.m. The fat is flying off! Once I lean out a little more, I'll change things up (up my calories, etc.).

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

I did carb cycling.. Two days no carb, three days carbs.. Course I was already fairly lean 14%.. Cycling works best at the low body fat range over noticed.. Just keep going, it'll drop fast

1 upvotesvagbutters3 years ago

Yes, it can, but remember that with weight loss, diet is king. People here are suggesting pretty large caloric consumption, which is perfectly fine for people who are consistent. If you have the sack for it, you can cut down to 1200-1500 calories depending on your weight/height and get in enough protein to lose weight at a fast pace.

When I lost 100+ pounds years ago (or when I cut now), I would always mix in cardio into my week. I'd usually lift 3-4 times a week and do cardio on the "off" days (in addition to doing so on lift days). The fat came off ridiculously quickly with this method.

1 upvotesCrailberry3 years ago

You will burn fat and put on muscle at the same time from lifting. That's what happened to me. I weighed 179 when I started lifting. For the most part I didn't really change weight, but I lost tons of fat, and put on lots of muscle.

For sure-- you get used to it after a while and can differentiate between the two. Sometimes a bitch is just being polite. When a woman shows an IOI it's subtle yet you can pick it out (eye contact is the biggest indicator from what I've personally seen, and in rarer cases, blushing).

Other things I've noticed-

  • If you are passing by an average group of girls, after you pass all the girls will giggle when you've gone about 5 paces past them. I still haven't figured this out yet but it's like you've gained their approval even though you are walking away from them.

  • On the dancefloor women will back into you as you are dancing. It's fucking rude. They'll flick their hair at you. It's fucking disgusting.

  • At bars they bump into you and still stand there expecting something but they don't initiate conversation.

  • Plates and old female acquaintances will "turn up" at social events where they aren't expected to be. For example I was at a concert getting a beer at the beer tent and an ex-plate "happened" to be right behind me in line (out of about 20 lines)

I'm 5/10 facially but have moved from a 4/10 to 9/10 body in the past three years so I've noticed these changes as well.

I went to an animal shelter last time I took acid. I walked into the room with the puppies and saw a girl from my work who didn't notice me at first. A few minutes later while I was looking at a puppy I notice her standing right beside me looking at them too. I say hi and she turns to me surprised like "Oh hey it's you" [what a coincidence]. In my mind I'm like oh shit I don't want to talk to someone from work right now but we actually had a nice conversation. The point is that a woman will very rarely initiate conversation but she will give you indications and opportunities for you to do so.

Same with adding you on facebook. Sometimes thats the big step they will take and then it's up to you to message them/open them. Of course not all facebook adds mean this but they sometimes do.

No girl will ever add a guy on Facebook that they are not interested in. Full stop. Girls do not need to add betas, they have no interest and have a request list full of ignored adds.

I think if you have had a previous good conversation with a girl before that gave her positive EMOTIONS then she will respond positively to you again and will even want to come and talk to you. The key here is the emotional aspect. People value you based on what you GIVE them. In this case positive feelings or tingles as they say

At bars they bump into you and still stand there expecting something but they don't initiate conversation.

I get a lot of girls that happen to bump into me one way or another (multiple girls, every time I go out). Most of them look up and say "I'm sorry", the rest are silent.

Not "excuse me" or "oops" or "watch where the fuck you're going asshole". Sorry, or just a meek look, is all they give.

Didn't happen before I got hot. If I got bumped, it was because "I was in their way". No pausing. Never an apology. Now, it seems like almost all of them feel the need to apologize.

They expect you to say "it's ok" or "don't worry about it" and maybe open conversation (they don't carry on, obviously wasn't just a bump while moving past). I used to make a joke, and start a conversation (At least you didn't spill your drink down my shirt! What are you drinking anyway?), but that's what every other guy does.

I've taken to saying "don't be sorry, just be right". Silent girls I just stare down and ask "did you just pickpocket me?"

If nothing else, it starts a conversation with you in the right position, while setting you apart from all the other guys who let them get away with it.

It works because it's douchey and unexpected (especially to a hot girl that thinks any man should be lucky just to have the opportunity to be bumped by her). It catches them off guard, puts them on defense, and they know they can't apologize their way out of it. You'd be shocked how many offer to "make it up to you" with their number or a drink.

I say it "matter of fact", no anger or disgust, as if it's a life tip. Like "Don't stick your dick in a light socket" or "swim perpendicular to a rip tide".

Obligatory "be attractive, don't be unattractive". This isn't something that works if you're not good looking.

16 upvotesTaylorWolf3 years ago

Dude spot on this is my life... I have been training MMA for the past 4 years and after the 1st year I started noticing these IOIs (especially from walking around the mall, the mall is actually an extremely sexual environment everyone is horny)

The backing up on the dance floor is hilarious!

My theory about the girls getting loud after you have passed is that it's a last ditch effort to get you to turn around and acknowledge them. It's always loud and desperate or forced sounding laugh or statement directed right towards your earlobes. Crazy thing is for me this happens just as often if not more when a girl is with a boyfriend or date than girlfriends. It's almost like they are desperately inviting me to Alpha the chump and crush him into the dirt and steal the girl.

Of course when a girl looks at you and then fiddles with her hair or adjusts her top or shorts this is a massive IOI... I get maybe 100 of these a day when I am out in public. Women today are massively horny sluts especially the younger ones. It's so fucking funny and ironic that they wear shorts so short their asses are poking out then try to tug on them as if they could make them magically grow longer and cover more skin. The tugging down on the short shorts is by far my favorite IOI.

It gets more and more intense the more I train and the more "man strength" I develop. (Was skinny AF until my 20s) now I have this phenomena where girls just hover around me wherever I go. They position themselves next to me and expect me to make a bold move (because they are so deserving "what guy wouldn't want to approach me especially this decent looking dude") it's not like I am a 10 either. (Maybe a 9 now hehe check my Twitter for a pic) it really is crazy how they all position themselves near me.

I'm still somewhat in shock and awe by these hens flocking to me and not confident enough in my social skills or game to pick this low hanging fruit unfortunately. By hesitating everything changes with girls who I have encountered more than once. Girls I see regularly at work or the gym quickly change their behavior after a few encounters and steer clear... With maybe a few thirsty glances from across the room to check if the status quo has changed. It seems like they either rationalize that something is wrong with them or something is wrong with me and sort of give up on staying near me. I have a feeling they are used to guys like me as being aggressive approachers and stereotype my manly appearance. Proof that you need to act in the moment and not overthink shit or hesitate.

32 upvotesKrunjar3 years ago

Yeah I've had the weird look before. I don't get it that much though, usually I think those women are kind of insecure and trying to say, "I'm too good for you", but its like a premptive "disgust" as a rejection defence mechanism.

As long as you got their attention, usually they like something about you, ugly guys are invisible to women, apart from maybe truly deformed people who they can't take their eyes off because they're a rare sight.

Heres some others which are funny:

  • The startle / rabbit in headlights: When shes looking down or comes round a corner, and sees you, and obviously is surprised to see you (she hasn't had the chance to prepare or covertly observe). Can be 20 feet away but they look directly in your eyes with a slightly shocked look, and then look down, embarrassed (they don't have time to process whats happening).

  • The eyefuck: They just make it completely obvious, and eye you up when they know you're looking, usually with a big grin on their face. I love this one but they're usually really slutty ;D

  • The constant covert stare: Basically staring at you for ages, when they think you can't see them doing it. Its fun to turn around and meet their eyes, as if to say, "I saw you the whole time".

I get the gay men lookign as well... and had them in bars (not gay bars :P) offer to buy me drinks, and trying to kiss me. Had one guy slobber all over my neck once, I didn't know wtf to do (wasn't expecting it) but thankfully he walked off straight after.

But still I don't think I'm good looking, I know all my "flaws" :/ I just don't think about it any more though, I just focus on doing things right (like lifting, style and game) and seeing what happens, nothing will convince me I'm hot, even a million IOIS or lays, idk why, but I don't let it bother me.

Only what you tell yourself matters. Start telling yourself that you're hot and you will, in time, accept this as true and give out vibes to others that you know that you're hot and that you know that others think you're hot.

4 upvotesKrunjar3 years ago

Yeah, its one of my challenges. I find it hard to assume attraction, I always expect girls to find something about me they don't like, I find it hard to believe they would actually be attracted to me completely. I usually am burying those feelings when I'm with girls.

Mostly what I do is hold frame and game, and all the time I just think about "all I have to do is just play it right and I can fuck her", and just ignore what they think of me. I just have fun, think sexy thoughts, and remember to kino/escalate. All that matters is how she responds in the moment. To be honest that probably gives out the same vibe as thinking I'm hot, even though I don't.

I suppose its a bit weird, because when I'm with a girl that obviously likes me, I do feel hot, "to her". But its just, in general, I don't. Its like every girl is different, they can reject you for the same thing that another girl loves you for Oo

So like, walking down the street, see a girl, I have NO IDEA if she'll like me until I've gone through all the shit with her and fucked her, its like fucking is the only true IOI xD And it doesn't even matter how hot she is, she could be ugly and find some sentence I said that she doesn't like, or maybe I had a hair out of place and it wasn't good enough.

I just think that if I was truly hot, things wouldn't be so hard, that it wouldn't be such a numbers game. It seems like hot people get away with a lot, and I don't get away with pretty much anything, I have to be completely on point or its fucked! :D

Fucking right it is. If she keeps looking back, puts her chin down and looks up at you while slightly turned, or over her shoulder, go talk to her. You're the same height as I am, and being intimidating is my go to for getting laid. Don't scare them outright, you don't want her thinking of being in a pit putting lotion on its skin, you want to give off the bad boy vibe. Play up the military look, high and tight or a flattop, not too flashy style, with an aura of comfortable confidence. I'm ex military, so it's how I am naturally.

The more you tease her and make her try to prove herself to you, the easier it will be to get her naked and putting your cock in her fuck holes. Yes, plural. I never have a girl turn down anal or head, they usually ask for it or offer my choice of orifice.

16 upvotesstawek3 years ago

If they touch or fix their clothes or hair straight after seeing you, it means they want your dick. Almost certainly. A woman who notices an attractive guy will almost straight away groom herself to ensure she's looking at her prettiest.

There is an exception.

If they somehow rearrange their clothing to cover themselves, you are creeping them out and they want to avoid attention. It could be something like checking their top if it has big cleavage opening, or making sure their skirts are properly covering everything, or even holding bag to their chest to cover themselves. If you walk into a room and a girl sitting there in miniskirt suddenly makes sure her skirt isn't revealing anything - forget about her. If she perceived you as an alpha she would gladly let her clothes "accidentally" reveal more skin.

Any revealing and opening movements are IOIs, anything opposite, like closing body posture, covering with clothes, using objects to cover, turning away, shows lack of attraction. It could also mean she perceives you as beta whom she wants to catch, so she instantly starts playing a good girl. If you are loaded, it could be IOI.

Girls are usually indirect about this kinda stuff. I've made the transition from depressed out of shape gamer nerd, to healthy and more confident, in shape mid 20 year old. I was completely caught off guard when this first started happening to me. Girls at random social events would find an excuse to start talking to me. Some real examples I've encountered: asking for a drag of my ciggarette, talking to me at a porta potty line, offering me water/gum randomly, a bartender complimenting my shoes. It only took me about 10000 failures of obliviousness to realize that I've become decent looking and should seize these opportunities.

I have yet tried to initiate a convo with a stranger at a non conventional spot(coffee shop, gym,etc) although I get body language cues to do so. I'd say the best tool to have in your toolkit is the ability to read these cues (girls fixing their hair, facing towards you, eye fucking). Man up... its your choice to act on these opportunities. No matter how good looking you may be, no girl is gonna throw herself into your arms. And also no matter how attractive you are, you to need to carry yourself as a valuable, confident, non creepy/awkward person to reach the finish line.

Was in the shade in a Hammock relaxing in a public area. Girl & her friend immediately catch wind & move to an adjacent hammock directly facing mine, her friend starts doing(the cuter ones) hair & she starts turning over in different positions.

  • She lays on her stomach with her back facing my direction.

  • She lays down & puts her legs up & spreads them.

I kind've stare shocked at the behavior & her friend giggles every time I gaze towards their direction.

Even after massive physical self improvement (body that could be on boxer brief modeling ad, fitted clothes, etc), I still do not get these looks from women. It took me a LONG time to get to 10% bodyfat while keeping a high level of muscular strength.

I am not facially super attractive...maybe that has to be it?

I have a hard time believing that if you actually have a body fat percentage of 10% that people don't stare even if you're shirtless. I was walking back from my campus pool one afternoon and I hadn't brought my change of clothes. I have about 12% bf, and some guys stared but nearly every girl I passed at least took a glance at me.

Walk with your chest out and in proper posture. Update your style/ hair cut. You need to be able to project an aura that shows confidence and dominance. A little while ago a guy posted about how he was at a concert and said even though he is the friendliest guy in the world when he was walking around every mother fucker around him would step out of the way when he walked and all the chicks would stare him down. After reading that post I started working on it and it has helped tremendously It is hard to explain. Also make sure you always walk staring straight forward never down or up so that way you catch eye contact with everyone that passes. never break eye contact until they do

Asymmetrical, but my mum says I'm pretty.

True say though my face got "better" when I started framing it with a better haircut and put on some cheek and jaw pudge. At my skinniest I looked way too gaunt, my long hair just hid my face too and made it look too thin.

I also started shaving more often. I still have yet to develop a decent stubble/beard: so when I don't shave I look like a teenage boy who's just had his first chin pubes sprout. It gives my face an odd shadow and accentuates the wrong parts. When I shave I look older and more masculine.

A similar thing happened to me when puberty hit when I was like 13. Before that hardly any women hit on me, or gave me much attention. A few did, but literally over night something changed and girls just started staring at me in class all the time, at shopping malls, girls would even ask to take photos of me randomly in shopping malls.

I'm not "there" 100 percent yet but I have had some shocker moments like earlier today paying LESS money for some towels I bought since the chick didn't scan one of them or having panda express for free. Coming from being acne scarred with nasty ass holes during high school and college its been a shocker. I look forward to improving more and more in the face (body as well).

1 upvotesGuillaume923 years ago

People who don't realise how important good looks are are living in a fantasy/haven't woken up to reality.

The male version of hamstering is believing that you can succeed in any area if you put work into it, that our success reflects our choices and freedom. In reality successful people are born successful, mostly. People can't fathom that so much is out of our control, that there's a limit, an upper ceiling, to how much you can improve by lifting and game.

That said, you can improve quite a lot from self-help, appearance improvement, game etc.

It's just overstated.

And of course being good looking doesn't automatically get you girls. Men still have to make the first move. Even when a girl is literally throwing herself on you, she still is waiting for your initiative, your moves, and you can still very easily fuck up.

Edit: face matters much much much more than body for women, IMHO.

Ive lost about 15 kg in the last year, and that was the main thing it took to make the difference that you speak of. The irony is it was my LTR cheating on me that caused it and not even in a healthy, going to the gym way. Ive been living on what are basically ready meals and my stress has been pretty high, which apparently has been enough to shift quite a lot of weight quite quickly. Ive also been drinking 4/5 nights a week which kills my appetite the next day.

This can't sound good, but my attraction level has apparently risen quite a bit. Now, Im getting the looks and whatnot. I wasnt catching onto it either but they end up telling you when theyve had a few drinks that they think youre hot.

When I was lifting it never happened. I guess I mustve just looked fat, not known how to show it off properly or that I dont really suit muscles.

Even further irony is that this Ive had a big problem with my skin for a while, and it decided to move to my face before the summer and stick around despite multiple trips to the derm. So Im a skinny(ish) dude with a red face but Im somehow getting more attention than I can remember.

Perhaps the real story though is that it was always there, but I was too cowed by my ex to realise it properly. When you're living with someone you've got that pressure on you to fucking text them loads, think bout what's for dinner, what to do at the weekend, what to watch that night, blah blah. I think that in an LTR, you chance losing all sense of your SMV and you lose touch with the very basic rules of attraction.

Fuck knows I might have the early stages already. Ill mention it to the derm when i go next. Thanks again, being aware of something is the most importnat thing!

2 upvotesLarParWar3 years ago

Red skin syndrome at its essence is basically the withdrawal symptoms of your skin's addiction to corticosteroids. Your skin knows that it isn't supposed to have that much of the corticosteroid hormone floating around so it stops producing its own. So when you stop using the corticosteroid, your skin isn't producing its own corticosteroid hormone and the symptoms you experience are from a lack of natural corticosteroid in your skin.

So when you, as a person addicted to this substance, use a corticosteroid, you're replacing the corticosteroid that you should have in your skin, but don't. But in doing so, your skin downregulates its response to the hormone even further. It's a downward spiral into insanity, and the only way to heal is to just go complete cold turkey no matter how bad the symptoms are and how long they last.

Depending on how badly your skin is addicted, it may be very, very bad and last for a very, very long time. The temptation is to simply use the steroid, but if you do you will be using it for the rest of your life, and it will be damaging your skin the entire time. The dermatologist will keep ratcheting up your prescription with stronger and stronger creams, and you will have to apply them to a larger and larger area. Eventually it may stop working entirely no matter how much you use. If it gets really bad you may go into adrenal shock. It certainly messes with your adrenals big time.

None of the dermatologists know about any of this. They're convinced these corticosteroids are a magic substance that heals all. I talked to eight different dermatologists personally, three of them at a very high-end clinic, and none of them knew about this. When you do talk to your dermatologist, ask them how many patients they have with what you have—they'll probably call it "atopic dermatitis"—how many of them use the steroid creams, and how many of them ever get better.

You'll likely hear something like, "oh, it's a lifelong condition, we don't know what causes it, and you'll have to use more steroids for the rest of your life to 'control' it".

They're wrong.

The next 8 weeks I got lean, like competition lean. Next thing I know even girls extremely way to young started flirting.. Started getting free coffee at the coffee shop. Cashiers would remember me week to week.

7 upvotes40_SixandTwo3 years ago

I've had this problem a ton in the past year. I'd been boxing and lifting constantly, I went from Trevor Reznik looking to Edward Elric.

I go to a very small college and there was a chick in a few of my classes who I was very attracted to. The only two problems were I was to nervous to talk to her and I was oblivious to the signals.

I was walking out of the parking garage at school one night while she was going in, I made eye contact and said hello, as I walked by, she gave me a nervous smile and didn't say anything. This happened many more times over the year. Even if I was in her vicinity, talking to someone else, she would look over to me with that nervous look, and still act like she was pre-occupied with something else.

Because of how oblivious I was, I'd convinced myself that she wasn't interested because she wasn't pouncing on me right then and there, or coming up and talking to me. I wouldn't talk to her out of fear of rejection. As I think and laugh about it, I'm convinced she was cautious about talking to me because she had the exact same thought process as me, but that roles were reversed and she was out of my league.

It happened more and more as the semester went on with other women I'd been around as well. In my opinion the biggest mindset I have to kill is that women who are interested will aggressively pounce on you, which sometimes may be true. What I'm seeing is as I up my attractiveness is they seem more shy, reserved and awkward as I interact with them.

I don't lift because I'm not really full TRP yet, but I'm 6'5 and classically handsome. I am one of the lucky ones who is a good looking guy without much effort. I was the biggest beta of all time. I used to think people stared at me because I looked strange, but when I got to the end of my twenties I realised people, usually women, were checking me out. It was such a rarity that anybody ever told me I was attractive that I spent ten years thinking I was a freak.

As I walked past them in the street they would stare at me with an anxious frown, then when I caught them they'd look away or look at the floor while playing with their hair.

Women will be discreet about it. You have to be looking for it to notice it. If you really need the validation and reassurance that you're attractive (we all do at some point) then just watch women as you walk past them. See if they glance at you and look to the side or at the floor as if they're worried you'll catch them.

It's actually pretty adorable.

You are being too nice. Women are not just discreet, they are shit-scared to put themselves out there and risk rejection. I have this girl in my office that fancied another co-worker but she never said a word to him, even tried to get another co-worker to gauge the guy's interest in her (which he never did). As far as the guy is concerned, the girl doesn't even know he exists, but there she is, head over heels over him and he's completely oblivious to it because he keeps mostly to himself at the office and she's just deathly scared of going up to him and asking him to see a movie or even saying "you look handsome today".

As for OP's talking about lifting and looking progressively better, I agree and that's kinda happening to me too. After a 3 months cut my GF let slip that some girl at the church commented with her that I'm looking handsome - she still won't tell me who (mate guarding) though. Made me think back about all the times girls had an interest in me but never said anything (and being socially retarted, I couldn't process their subatomically-faint hints) and I just discover it later through mutual friends or the girls themselves, after months/years.

EDIT: remembered other situations too - a gay friend of mine told me that "only you think you're not attractive" and that more than once friends of his (male and female) asked him about me when I commented on his FB posts (his sister included) - and he only told me that because it came up in the middle of another conversation, otherwise I would've been completely oblivious to it.

Not really sure how you could go through your entire twenties and not realise...?

Saying that, it is rare for men, even good looking men to be told they are good looking. Men often don't know which other men are good looking, and if they do, they won't mention it. And women are rarely that forward, the women who are that forward are usually loud and forward in other things as well, so their opinion not really is the best.

It makes me remember a piece a woman wrote about dating good looking guys:

"Really good looking guys don’t know they’re really good looking.

OK, so some do, and are total dicks about it, but the majority don’t. I once went out with a guy who was the closest thing to a living, breathing Adonis statue you can imagine. Women would literally turn their heads and gasp as he walked down the street. The first night I met him I asked what it was like to be told how beautiful you are everyday of your life and he looked confused.

At first I thought he was trying to play it cool and be all humble about it, but he’d honestly never been told how handsome he is. People either (wrongly) assumed that he was a douche and didn’t need to be reminded in case his head exploded, or thought that he got told so regularly that it would be like asking him if he had the time.

Handsome men aren’t approached by women half as often as average-looking ones, because everyone assumes that they aren’t pretty enough for them and that they’ll be rejected. They often thereby have no idea how good looking they are. They’re usually completely oblivious to the doors their looks open, and presume that everybody gets free coffee from Starbucks. I’ve never gotten free coffee in my life and believe me, I’ve tried."

You have no clue how close this post hits home. I thought I have a problem . I wouldn't call myself a 10 but more like 7-8+ . I was an alpha-looking beta . I was getting looks everyday and every hour. I was asking my friends what's wrong and if I have something dirty on me or anything or if they are getting checked out as well and they told me no. I thought I had a psychosis . Until one day I look back. How many girls looked at me and smirked when I looked back how many succeses I had with women I approached and gamed how many ons I had with zero lmr and I give myself a good look in the mirror. Hell for god sake I look better than at least 80% of the dudes out there. I was pretty lucky to get good genetics , nice facial hair and a good face and I was a swimmer from the age of 5 till now. Slapped with a good 2 years of gym I am near my peak . Women will try to even avoid you to not show interest while their pussy is wet as fk. Stop wasting time.

By the way how to cold approach tho ? Just go and say hey whats up? Its not so common in my country to cold approach . But tbh everytime i do it or sm1 else comes up to me I feel really good and it makes my day. So I suppose it's the same for them as well

This may have already been commented.

Read "What every body is saying" by joe navarro

The main point of body language is you can't read what it means, only that the person is more or less stressed or uncomfortable.

Touching hair or face is a self-calming behaviour. Think about a toddler sucking on a pacifier - it gives the brain a lot of neural input so it can distract itself from stressful situation.

You can't know just by that if she's stressed cause she likes you (kind of like most men feel talking to a 9) or stressed cause she's scared of your attention.

A huge tell is her voice. Hard to spot on somebody you just met (cause you don't know her default pitch), but pay attention to chicks you know when they talk on the phone to her boyfriends. Within 5 seconds you know if their BF is alpha or beta. Talking to beta is same as talking to anyone else but when they start chatting to a Chad their whole speech mellows, slows down and gets a little quieter. That loud chick that frequently shrieks will turn into soft spoken "nursery teacher" voice instantly.
Men do the same. Which is a huge tell for females, of course, and one of the fastest ways to lose attraction.

I... What? Why are you upset about this?

Look. It's perfectly reasonable to lose fat while getting fit and gaining muscle.

Have you never seen a fat kid come back from boot camp?

Really. I promise.

It's amazing how slow we are as men, to realize these things. It's true though. I can judge how well a haircut came out, how well a clothing combo works, by how many double takes I get.

Not getting any? Reassess your habits.

It means nothing. She is aware of your presence, that's it.

To be more exact: it means something, but you cannot know what it is. It is a deliberate action on her part, which means it isn't an honest tell. Body language can only help you when it's instinctive, immediate and unconscious.

It could be her trying to look good for you, her covering her ass cause you're creepy, or just her habit of always checking her skirt after standing up.

I got a new rad haircut today, and moved slow, minding my posture. This was happening to me all night. I had this article in mind so I was being a little self-conscious but I think I tune that out.

I wanna see a pic of this hot guy

1 upvotesTemperfuelmma3 years ago

I was at this event and I had to leave my chair to go to the restroom. When I came back there was this really good looking chick who I'd never have had a chance in my beta years sitting on my seat.

She stood up the moment she saw me as if out of respect, said sorry and started to move out, I told her it was fine and sat next to her in a nearby seat. I could almost see her giggling like a little kid for getting to sit next to me.

It's like I was some kind of God, although I acted cool throughout the interaction I was actually quite surprised.

Women treat you like a God once you get to that level I shit you not.

Belive me or not i am in the same situation. Years ago i was just pretty face with holocaust survivor body. On average,5 of 10 would check me out. Now when im buffed,very low fat,lean tone and close to ideal adonix index ratio 9/10 would check me out.

Crazy how filling out a bit gives a pretty face good look boost. I bet you're low BF and have the facial indentations.

end up playing chicken it means you've got a feisty one.

what does this mean? ''playing chicken'' and ''fesity one''

1 upvotesbrettfromtibet3 years ago

"Playing chicken" is a game where two people (or two cars) will go straight at each other and the most cowardly one ("the chicken") will be the one who moves out of the way first.

A "fiesty" person has a lot of fire, energy, and attitude... they are very lively and intense.

Now try take some MDMA or cocaine, groom yourself and go to a rave have a good time dancing. Is like IOI porn.

1 upvotesjustgotalpha3 years ago

i can def relate back in 2014 i went from your average guy to mr. steal your girl(at least thats how they perceived me lol) in 6 months of lifting,grooming,eating right , drinking lots of water,dressing in style and having a HAIRCUT that matches your face shape i got to a point where the attention got ANNOYING ,suddenly all eyes where on me i even did a experiment on my self on how many people would stare at me during the day and NEARLY 95 percent of the people whom i came accross with would stare at me multiple times and in 1 occasion i had a hb8 invite me to a barbe-Q within minutes of talking to me.am 5ft 6 and believe me it dint matter that i was short.the attention felt good the first 2 months or so but believe me it gets annoying after certain time,since everyone now wants to agree with you for no reason,want to be seen with you,ask you random questions as an excuse to talk to you.i even had a guy offered me a good position in the company that he supposedly "owned",not to say all the hate that comes with it ,guys not wanting their girls around you ,going to the bars was always uncomfortable since the guys who were with their girls will grill at you and feel threaten.

women will stare at you like crazy and will perceive you as high smv guy but you have to be suave type of guy since the interest is there dont go to hard on yourself just play it smooth and you could be smashing FAST.the DOWNSIDE with girls is that they will always have you in doubt meaning they will think you are a player and that you have lots of women at your disposal so you better get ready to get rejected yes REJECTED girls will do this as a way to protect their feelings(ego)

yes i cant lie it felt GOOD but you got to realize that its all fake admiration from people since when i dint looked this way nobody even bothered to ask me anything,stare or show interest in me,i wanted to be admired for being me.also you wont be able to focus on other things since now all you could think is about being a sex SYMBOL.I now moved to another state so the preassure of getting stable got me to stop grooming like i used to,stopped lifting(for now)cant afford haircuts and maintenance kind of hairstyle,dressed down a bit and ocassionaly wear hats and well the magic is GONE!!!..now i feel like i have to work harder to achieve things since now they are talking to my personality and not my looks!! now when i approach a girl i have to get my game tight since my looks are not there to save me when i screw on something.so ive seen both sides of the coin,maybe il get like that again but want to make money first and focus on my career.

sorry for my formatting!!!1

What I notice is that when you catch eyes with a women she tends to look longer. That or she does a double take.

The other thing is some women get more tense / awkward around you. This is not a pleasant feeling but I've noticed it, Im 6'4" maybe has something to do with it.

-8 upvotesreecewagner3 years ago

Do a lot of dudes really have this hard of a time knowing when a woman is checking you out? They won't look at you weird, they'll look at you sexually. It's nowhere near as hard to discern as your multiple paragraphs of women ogling you would suggest.

You should post some before and after pics - if not as inspiration for whoever you're talking to, then as some proof to back up what is almost entirely a post about how hot you think you are.

17 upvotesedwardhwhite3 years ago

If you were raised beta and told you were shit by a parent and also were fat, and then suddenly these girls are into you. . . it is hard. You don't believe it. You think of other reasons why its true.

Then you get catcalled and you can't kid yourself any more. That wolf whistle. . . or strangers telling you you are handsome.

This. Cannot be stressed ENOUGH. Especially if you had bad acne like I did and shitty friends.

7 upvotesRICCIedm3 years ago

Not all women are good at flirting, though. Some are so sexy that give you a boner, others make you wonder if they are retarded. The general rule is that if they are paying attention to you, they are interested. But be careful : if you have shown BB value, they might try to seduce you for other ends. Make sure to subtly ask them for sexual cues.

4 upvotesHeathcliff-- [OP]3 years ago

Yeah it's hard not to humblebrag.

I might actually try if I can find some pics that mean I won't get doxed. But that includes removing my face which I'm willing to admit is a significant factor.

Edit: and yes a lot of dudes really do. It was hard for me to believe that women could even see me as sexual let alone be checking me out so blatantly in public.

This is actually strange because, I don't consider myself a 'Natural Alpha' maybe something along the lines of Sigma. However, the fact that this needs explaining is baffling to me.

When at coffeeshops girls usually sit or chooses seats around my general vicinity; even if there's empty seats everywhere else. After I glance at them they reapply their lipgloss or stare & smile. These seem pretty obvious examples of IOI's I suppose.

See, here's the thing. A lot of us weren't players in high school. I was the kid with acne and shitty emo hair that no one talked to except the other outcast nerds. I stared at the ground when I walked. It physically hurt me to make eye contact with people. I started lifting senior year and shaved my hair off. The newfound attention was foreign to me, and I'm sure it will be to a lot of people. Hell, I've been "attractive" for a solid year or two now and am still improving but I still feel like an ugly nerd inside. It sucks but I'm getting better about it day by day. I envy guys like you that can talk to girls and their peers naturally, I've had to train myself socially to even get to the "kinda-awkward" point I'm at today.

Luckily I lift and am funny so it makes up for it most of the time.

I think you're confusing women casually glancing at you like a normal person would with girls "checking you out", sounds kind of delusional IMO.

Women have little need to casually glance, and if they look a second time it's not a casual glance.

I got hot, but didn't realize it for a long time.

Ooooo! Lets see it, baby! If you're man enough to boast about what an exquisite physical specimen you are, you should have no qualms about showing off your perfectly symmetrical face.

And girls will treat you better. I guarantee you.

Quite frankly. I don't. Think you've. Progressed past high school.

f I saw a hot girl I'd fix my hair quick while she wasn't looking. Women are the same.

Nope, that's just women, and insecure emotionally-stunted beta males.
