TheRedArchive needs help
With 700,000+ posts and 16,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 20-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.

Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained a lot of knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you, and I wish you all a successful 2021 and a good luck with achieving your goals and dreams!

Being assertive. Don’t get involved in drama. No gossiping. Being confident and owning your shit whatever it may be. If it’s a beat up car, bad hairline, or just being overweight. Take full control of your life

It's always the ego, it's taking time but I'm learning like we all should

1) Don't hide the fact you are a sexual creature. Sexual desire should not be a hidden secret. This is most men's first mistake.

2) Call people out if they say or do something disrespectful. For example, if someone is 20 minutes late without letting you know, calmly tell them that you expect them to give you a heads up next time. Don't need to be aggressive, a dick, or bitter about it, but a calm statement followed by not dwelling on it and having a good time is usually enough if it's the first time they've done something. No one respects a person who lets things slide, bends over and takes it. If your best friend was super late, wouldn't you call him out on it? Then why do most men let this slide with women?

1 is key. I find it hilarious with men. "She friend-zoned me!" "Well did you ever flirt?" "No" "Did you ever try to touch her?" "No" If you act like a friend, you will be treated like a friend. This is such a basic truism that men need to understand.

Being assertive, taking the lead, owning up to your mistakes and learning from them, having a good workout routine based around weight training, being fiscally responsible, being impeccable in your word, being a good role model, etc.

Remain calm in situations where other lose their mind

Being assertive, confident, and not sugarcoating or putting a facade.

[–]Chadster11314 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy

Having a genuine direction/purpose in life

Buy a super sport motorcycle and have fun with it.

But buy a naked sport bike :)

Watch joe Rogan for about 3 months with a touch of jocko

I had this question six months ago when I discovered redpill. I improved few things that makes me feel more manly. * Lifting, you already know this. Read the the sidebar to do it in right way. Set goals here. Mine are 2x(body weight) on squats. 2.5x on deads, 1x overhead press, 1.5x bench. * beared is very masculine if you can grow one. * clothing, I started to put big heavy boots and dark raw denim. Its make me feel strong. * doing hard things in all compartments of life. * always be aware of frame and control it.

Honestly 1x bw OHP seems much more extreme than the rest.

[–]prrraveen4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Honestly I think so too. I am 80 kg body weight and right now 1 rm max is 65. But this is the lift that had most impact on my body. Big torso and big shoulders.

[–]ShantiMo4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Stoicism. Teaching yourself to be emotionally detached, not to never engage with emotion but to do so when YOU decide, when it serves.

[–]storinoranges 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Being ballborn, eight-town, going out to eat at restaurants, knowing how to fix things like cars or air conditioners, learn to chop wood, try hunting or boating, and like you said lifting, don’t gossip, try to follow the 7 virtues

[–]Brutal137 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

What’s eight-town?

[–]uptimex6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

IDGAF, in my opinion can give you that. I couldn't express anything untill I learnt the "NEXT.." attitude. In social situations you are not an action hero, if you are not getting satisfying results, change the scene/girl/plate/wing/method. What will it give you? Social intuition as it comes only when you have enaugh comparison and comparison comes to you when you change situations quickly. I am not saying about escaping but when your stress level rises you brain won't get enaugh oxygen to give you goos ideas.

EDIT: honesty and authenticity, for example, if you are shy, approach a girl and say "You know I am extremely shy, but couldn't just pass you..". It was just an example, but the attitude should be "I am what I am, if you accept it it is good, if you don't...next".

[–]Thotamus_Prime5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Being the biggest cunt in the room is a good start.

Just respecting yourself as well. Something that is very powerful is leaving a situation when it no longer suites you.

Show up to a party, if it's shit, leave within the first 30 minutes, or any social event really. Once you're over it just leave rather than trying to appease the people there.

[–]Dane501 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is good advice. Never go to any social situation where you aren’t willing and able to bail in 30-60 minutes if it sucks.

[–]bigdaddypapadad15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy

Flash your nuts

Showing your dick in public



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
