The Rational Male should state this at the start "enjoy rom coms while you still can cuck"

Do you realise how many god damn times I've watched The Raid it's great but a man needs variety

Been watching Friends and holy shit Ross Geller is beta AF. Never realized how pathetic he was.

Dont forget Barney - that was the saddest thing for me. On the surface he's RP but in reality far from it.

[–]sumigaeshibjj55 points56 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well they don't want to depict that dude as happy. That would send the wrong message if being rich and sleeping around was actually a source of happiness.

[–]xddm26533 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

First five seasons he definitely is. After that the writers wanted character growth so they butchered his persona, it happens in real life too though

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Many men fall down the same path irl

[–]xddm26531 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

yes it's actually a great show for showing what path's people naturally follow without any other guidance

He had some severe oneitus for Robin (beta), his Play Book's ultimate end goal was for getting with Robin (the beta trap of using Game just for one girl) and despite sleeping around he would drop any chick he was with for her (oneitus despite following GFTOW)

When they got married he followed her around as she was going from country to country for her career like some beta house husband (Robin was always his mission and now he's taking a backseat to hers), and robin ultimately divorces him because he kept whining about her valuing her career more than their marriage (at this point, barney would no doubt be a deadbeadrooms regular).

While all of that's going on though? Robin is pining for Ted, she admits in PG terms that he Alphawidowed her, and they begin dating after she and barney divorce. He got CUCKED by TED. Let that sink in for a moment.

tl;dr: Barney was a seddit tier "alpha", and completely dropped trp as soon as he got the girl, who ultimately got bored of him and branch swung for Ted.

[–]xddm26537 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I love that show because it shows the true nature of dating. She only went for him once she was in her 40's and fucking attractive men was no longer her life goal

The writers dropped red pills without even knowing it

I still watch this show. Y’all remember that episode of the guy who was going to replace Rachel at her job. She expressed how much she hated him and proceeded to make out with him at her balcony. That guy is alpha.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children) | Copy

Reminds me of what Bill Burr said about Friends on his podcast, something like "All I wanted from that show was to see an episode where Ross got the shit kicked out of him."

[–]menial_optimist6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Same with Ray Romano's character in his sitcom. Most men in this Rom Coms are weaklings with the maturity of a little boy. Think of King of Queens or Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends etc. These shows are designed for women. I'm guessing women just love the fantasy of "the woman wears the pants in the relationship" and enjoy seeking dorky weakling dudes get dominated by the mature female counterpart. But in real life, nothing would disgust them more than to be in a relationship like that.

[–]kellykebab2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Most of those shows at least attempt to be funny but Everybody Loves Raymond is just an explicit tragedy about the most emasculated dad known to man. Utterly soul-deadening.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

He was the highest quality male in the group as well...except for his personality.

Seriously... and then there's Brad Paisley

[–]TomasoJew4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Definitely true. Top 40 in our country exists 90% with BP lyrics, makes me think why all these songs get so popular.

Omg my gymchain plays THE most bp music on loop. Imagine that!

Okay so after the Raid and Raid II. Watch Dredd, John Wick 1 & 2, Elite Squad (Brazilian move with subtitles), and Sicario. I also have Drive on my list but haven't gotten around to it yet.

How in the fuck are those movies redpill? Testosterone action packed. Yes. But not redpill.

No one said they were, they're just good, well made/choreographed action films

That is true.

Fast times at Rosemont high --> game 101 and overall good film

Nightcrawler. Dude creates his own business and operates with abundance to keep the woman news anchor in line so she’ll keep paying him/fucking him in return for him supplying the footage she needs to save her job.

No comeuppance for his actions either - just goes from strength to strength and his company gets even bigger as a result.

I'm still in the transitional period I haven't finished the book, only been lifting 2 months and haven't a game yet

[–]Framexemplary10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

Game is something you only get from practice. Get the sidebar as a foundation in your psyche. Then go and push your boundaries with women. Just keep doing stuff that make you feel like you are going to cross a line. Work on keeping frame. Repetitions in the gym and repetitions in any area you want to grow in.
Go git yours brother.

As a German, I used to watch some Indian movies with subtitles. After reading the book, it completely makes sense why all of the Indian men are BP.

(500) Days of Summer is an interesting watch with a trp lense. It's almost realistic too, being a movie about getting over oneitis

[–]ethical_pa3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ya I have to say I got the same feeling from it. It's playing into BP fantasy, but showing you how unhealthy and pointless it is. Not a movie you walk away from feeling "oh wow, that was great! I believe in true love!". I don't know if that was intentional but...

[–]frequentlywrong6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

Good ones are enjoyable no matter what mindset. Vicky cristina barcelona is fantastic for instance.

And haven’t you guys realized the songs whining about their significant other left them and how they can’t live without them are written and presented by those BP male? Most songs are so stupidly blue pilled.

How about Angela being engaged to Andy (beta provider) and cheating on him with Dwight (farmer hunter alpha), with no shame. Classic AF/BB.

This is a very interesting comment. Rom coms are advertised for women, but it's quite clear it is also sold as fantasy for betas. They feed those fantasies that the ONE is real and you can have her, that women can love unconditionally, that you just have to be yourself.

As a newly unplugged man, it's difficult for you to watch them because they feed you your own pre-existing blue pill delusions.

Rom coms are works of fiction. They are enjoyable this way. Just like sci fi movies. If you feel like RP ruined your watching of them, it's because you didn't watch them as works of fiction as you should have.

[–]Senior EndorsedVasiliyZaitzev2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

There's a reason that rom-coms and sit-coms are filled with pussified betafags, who are a danger to themselves and others, but happily can live under the supervision of their on-point wife and their precocious kids.

There's also a reason that the wife it HAWT and the guy is a schleppy guy.

Think about the guys who wind up writing these things. They're nerds and nebbishes 'wif no game who got to watch Chad Thundercock nail all the quality tail in their HS...and college. So they're basically writing their "Walter Mitty Fantasies" where THEY Get The Girl.

The rest of it is structured so they don't get picketed. NOW isn't going to picket because you show the wives as way smarter than dumb hubby, and nobody is going to protest on behalf of the guys. They will, occasionally bitch that chubsters Kevin James and Jim Belushi are cast opposite that hot woman who hates Scientology and the blonde girl from 90210, because the men are thunderchunks and the women are eye candy.

That's how that shit goes. Better to be out in the world, working on yourself than watching TV anyway.

[–]DirtyBastard132 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Knowledge brings sorrow. To the red pilled, blue pill swill is nigh unwatchable. about a good 75% of protagonists make me want to punch em in the face. Titanic still holds up, Rose got Alpha widowed so hard that even 70 years later no other man can compete with Jack.

[–]Morphs_2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

How no one suggested The Matrix is beyond me. Not TRP in the literal sense, but it is the movie this reddit based its name on

[–]11-Eleven-111 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I still watch rom coms shamelessly

I just pretend it could be real or I pick out all of the mistakes the guy makes or all of the awalt things the girl does.

[–]roi_batty1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Now when I watch movies I get a chuckle when some beta shit happens and than the dude dies or gets jammed up. Most movies will have some beta dude and his downfall is supposed to be a tragedy but you just end up going, "well he got what he deserved".

[–]seedster52 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well now hang on there. I have done my due diligence and have a LTR who understands family dynamics, never rode the cock carousel, and my SVM is stable as I have a good career and implement trp into my daily lives. The shit test and comfort tests are never-ending but I manage to pass 90% of them and salvage the 10%.

To me it's entertainment and some of them kind of adorable. But movies are entertainment nothing more nothing less. As a man who is trying to apply the laws of TRP it us your duty to correctly identify what it what and keep a clear head. Movies are a great conversation starter and a lot of women will watch these movies. I see these movies as a resource for future use. Some of them are kind of funny. I loved 50 first dates.

[–]WoodWizzy870 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I wouldn't say you no longer enjoy them. You just find yourself rooting for the "bad" guy and laughing at the beta cucks.

[–]Cmdrj-nice0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Honestly you can watch rom com but you just have to know it not based in reality just a fantasy

[–]xddm26530 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not at all. I enjoy BP media more than ever (HIMYM, 40 year old virgin) especially when the crutch of the jokes is on the blue pill behavior.

I fucking love watching The Big Bang Theory especially for this, and I think most of reddit hates that show because they relate too hard to some of the characters

[–]huntersam130 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I mean, I love sci-fi, but that shit is just fantasy... rom coms are no dif

[–]2319Skew0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You could always watch Brazzers for romance

[–]GL_QUAD0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Romantic films, rom coms = boring people living their boring lives. Meh to that.

Rick and Morty was kind of fun. Esp. if weird humor is your thing and you can identify with the deranged, yet harsh truth-spitting misanthrope archetype. Although they say the show got infected with SJW bullshit, in the second or third season (didn't get so far).

Silicon Valley. I watched a few episodes - that Canadian satanist and the fat, chill slacker landlord were interesting characters to watch. But the main protagonist - the scrawny, annoying, naive nerd - I couldn't watch that. I'd have puked my guts out. Then, I checked out the fourth season or so, to see whether it got better. Ironically, it got even worse (if that is even possible)...
