I see a lot of posts on here from people confused over what this sub is about. It's about sexual strategy, i.e., how to be more successful with women. That's true whether your goal is to spin plates or have an LTR.
We talk a lot on here about self improvement. Ultimately, self improvement is to benefit you. If you are scrawny or a fat ass or play video games all day and have no career prospects, you need to hit the gym, clean up your diet, and start taking steps to better yourself. Doing so will make you happier.
Many on here believe that if they follow a strict regimen of self improvement, they will one day attract women. Self improvement is their sexual strategy. The characteristics of people who do this vary. Some are uncomfortable interacting with women, others are tradcons who are morally repulsed at things like PUAs and spinning plates.
It's true that successful self improvement will help you attract women. But if you don't understand sexual strategy, you won't do well with them. I've seen it over and over. I know many guys who are fit and quite successful, but they don't have a clue about RP. They always follow the rules, make good money, adhere to a strict diet, exercise regularly, have read deep books, and are all around good, moral people.
Unfortunately, these things don't give women tingles. And since these guys don't understand RP, they commonly make it worse by doing things like expressing their feelings and intentions to women, calling and texting regularly, providing all the attention women seek from them, losing their cool, or attempting to set boundaries in a hectoring manner. Or some combination of the foregoing. Women view them as betas and often snatch them up for marriage. And these guys experience divorce, cheating, being treated like shit, or some combination of the three. Women simply aren't attracted to these qualities.
RP will teach you what women are really attracted to. And if you understand RP, you can use it to your advantage with women while still being successful in other areas. No one says you have to be a druggie or a degenerate. You should always to strive to improve yourself, but do it for you, not in the hopes that one day it will attract women. Learn RP for that.
