Then they can become a type of manboob. Manosphere-boobs who prefer to blame the bitches for being unlovable and pump and dump them rather than go through the pain of maturing their LTR and interpersonal skills.

I don't much approve of xplat's shaming technique here since it takes a very holier-than-thou attitude, as though there is a magic answer to happiness and most of us are just too stubborn and ego invested in our (ironically) new ego-breaking world view to "mature" and.. what.. man up so we can finally pursue those high quality relationships we've just been too blind to see?

I posted this because I think there is some real thinking each of us have to do individually to really consider exactly what it is that we want out of this. At some point, a personal decision needs to be made. It's true that there's a possibility of getting stuck in a rut here- pumping and dumping, nexting and nexting... But the question is, is there a higher quailty life? Is his version of this closer to our former lives? Is he just too high to realize that not everybody will enjoy his success? Is this success real? Can these things be realistically achieved? Or are we being fed the same lies that got us here in the first place?

I don't purport to have the answers here, but I think I detect a hint of shame tactics coming not only from some of the manosphere bloggers but a lot of people here who don't quite grasp it.

Just because our path is dark and hard to see- doesn't mean there's a light at the end of the tunnel. We decide what the light is. Sometimes you have to realize that life is limited and make do with what is good enough. But sometimes you re-prioritize your goals altogether. Why strive for this version of "mature" relationships?

Well it's a personal choice. Anyway, take it for what you will.

I have to agree with the author. What he's referring to are "keyboard jockeys" who do nothing all day but theorycraft; they talk big, but can't back their words up with real life accomplishments.

Maslow's pyramid gives us a concrete guideline of where we need to focus in order to proceed. Although I don't endorse his patronizing tone, he does make a valid point that each of us should be vigilant and not be casual consumers but active achievers.

Unfortunately, it is a poorly written article, but I think some of us got the gist of it.

What he's saying just sound way to much like jealousy and hateraid.

I agree, TRP is a path not a single once-and-done event. Someone doesn't have from BP to RP in a day or even a month, sometimes not for months or years depending on where they started. We have a lot of new people on here, 23K now WTF, and many of them are at the beginning phases of becoming successful with women and leaning to meet their sexual needs. Some are in the bitter stage (all women are evil bitchs), others in the bargaining stage (if I act super alpha I can protect myself from the evil bitches), even the depression stage (is this all there is to life? can't I make long term emotional connections with women?).

Once someone gets to the other side and realizes that no, acting super alpha isn't the solution and won't protect you. That yes all women can be evil bitch's, they can also be sweet and nice. That yes you can form long term emotional connections with women, if you accept them for who they are. And that finally women are just women and can always be trusted to act like women. We are who we want to be, each of us individually make our own rules, our own goals and our own success in life. We make our own happiness by choosing to be happy by accepting life for what it is and not what we want it to be.

Some people will read what I just wrote and get pissed calling it "fell good BP Beta BS blahblah" with all the shaming and negativity their ego's demand they use. The more experienced folks will understand what I'm getting at.

Where the fuck is the text of this blog post? It's like he just posted a couple charts someone else made, and wrote a couple of lines relating them to the manosphere. Nothing particularly insightful is offered either. I thought this was going to be good. I want my click back.
