I have average looks and grew up middle class. I don't think anything else is really amazing or unique about me as a whole.
I lift 5 days per week, dress well, speak selectively, work full time & have been reading / applying TRP for 5 years. That's it.
The older I get the more I notice that people (men and women) do not shit test me, and if they do it is rare and playful at most. I can attract women and keep their attention, and also make male friends / acquaintances without it being forced.
I just look after myself and speak well, that is all it feels like. But when I read of some guys and the things they say / do or what they firmly believe in when it comes to female nature or other men it honestly confuses me because it is so easy to step out of the bucket (crabs reference thing) but I see and know of so many guys who are going through their 20's with horrible posture, a big gut, smoke every day, dress like edgy teenagers, always side with women, demonize men, act fairly feminine but play it off as some quirk, overly apologetic, clearly no physical activity, eating junk, just appearing somewhat out of the loop.
Again I ain't a Chad Thundercock, just a guy who is average with some basic self improvement thrown in with some regular maintenance thrown in to keep myself on my toes socially (such as reading TRP) and yet I still find myself amazed at times as to just how some guys act in the world.
For example I study and all of the guys in my class (8 of them) are genuinely nice and we get along fine. But they are all terribly out of shape, half of them smoke on breaks, they all buy doughnuts and chocolate milks for lunch, dress poorly, and act noticeably more blue-pilled when any of the female classmates are nearby (agreeing with them, laughing at everything they say, smiling non stop, apologizing for petty things) and It is as though even they know they aren't doing what they know they should be doing.
I have observed these same guys playfully rip into each other about how they should exercise, how they should bring packed food, how they should buy new shoes, how they should quit smoking, the list goes on. And they all sort of have this brief moment of "realness" on their faces when it is as though deep down their mind is screaming at them saying "BUT WHY DONT YOU?" and they quickly forget it and go back to normal life.
This is all just observations and thoughts I have been having lately and wanted to share. I won't end with a question because I am pretty sure there are various things in this whole post that some of you could reply to and share insight on.
