I used to work with a guy who said this all the time. He always said it with a half sigh of wistful exhaustion. This is the mantra of the defeated and whipped male. Make yourself happy first, and if your wife doesn't like it next her.

If she's your wife already, nexting can be complicated. Vet properly and maintain frame at all times, happy life.

[–]itsarusko6 points7 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Why is it complicated? You next her by withdrawing attention, and doing something fun.

Lets say you're always super happy with your wife, you make her food sometimes, she makes you food, you guys go out and have fun, you're always trying to kiss her and touch her, but for some reason she pulls away everytime. So you next her, the next day you guys wake up, act like nothing is wrong, but withdrawl your extra attention. Make some food for both of you, but when you go eat, tell her "I needa eat in the office, need to get some work done". When she asks to go out, tell her you're busy, and you're going out with your buddies. Eventually the golden question will be asked "why aren't your kissing me, why aren't you all over me like always" WELL BITCH, I TRIED AND YOU PULLED AWAY.

Don't word it that way of course, but make it known it's unacceptable to you that she pulls away, and if she pulls away you pull away your attention.

Worked wonders for me, I don't have a wife though, just a girlfriend. But I did that shit once, and I never had to again. She fully understands now, a guy controls the attention he gives a girl, and a girl wants attention. And the girls controls the sex she gives a guy, and a guy wants sex. If one part of the equation is off, then it doesn't work.

I guess we're using 'nexting' to mean different things, I use it to mean moving on and finding someone more suited to my wants and needs rather than just the push/pull of good game. Moving on from a wife can be a drawn out and costly affair.

What itsarusko said. There also are ways to divorce rather cleanly provided there are no children involved and you maintain frame.

If she's your wife and she's happy it's only because she views you as a leader / alpha male / someone of vastly superior SMV to her own. So from a less literal interpretation it does make sense.

The common blue pill interpretation of this maxim is that you have to make your wife happy to begin with by doing nice shit for her: doing the laundry, making dinner, taking the kids to school, telling her how beautiful she is, etc., etc.

But we all know none of this shit actually makes women happy, women are only happy when they are the ones serving someone, who in their eyes, is a geneticly perfect male specimen who has reached his utmost potential and then some. It's the male's selfish quest for growth and for conquering everything that fuels a women's loins as she has no desire to grow on her own and can only do so vicariously through her god, the temple that is man.

And lol at these turd in tuxedo interpretations:

However, they also found that wives became less happy if their spouses became sick, but the husbands' levels of happiness did not change or show the same outcome if their wives became ill.

This is likely due to wives taking on the majority of the caregiving when a partner is sick, says Prof. Carr, who notes that is can be a stressful experience. "But often when a woman gets sick, it is not her husband she relies on but her daughter," she adds.

Yeah.. sure... Briffault's Law had absolutely nothing to do with this.

It's true when they say don't get sick. My wife has never been more of a cunt to me than following my major surgeries when I was helpless to even get off the couch myself. I now see that seeing me weak and helpless like that was the problem.

[–]trphardmode1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Be alpha physically, socially, and intellectually and you will be able to keep one of them through most hardships. And as usual being economically alpha trumps everything else.

I've seen this maxim playout countless times in life as well, both in my own relationships and in others. And while some women are more resiliant and steadfast in the face of hardship, most of them just fold and search for greener pastures.

and how do you keep a woman happy? by being the red pill man

[–]Exactly_what_I_think2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

It is true but doing what she asks will not make her happy.

[–]KublerRossWasWrong0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It is true but doing what she asks will not make her happy.

The only thing I would change in your response is to write "...doing everything that..." instead of "...doing what...". Women--and quite a few men, but that is a different thread--will come up with a million things that they think they want and that will make them happy. The trick to ensuring her happiness is to identify the few that truly will make her happy. This requires a conscious, intimate knowledge and understanding of your wife's needs and desires.

As a hint: it doesn't generally including shopping and a closet full of shoes.

We've been ingrained nearly since birth that women are more important. We are to die for women because biologically it makes sense. Women being happy no matter how it is achieved is actually felt as male dominance. This is not particularly surprising, it's something we're programmed to feel. Unfortunately our need to fend off wild animals and rival tribes died out long ago and this ingrained behavior has become perverted in the last few hundred years by women as they have to move from being protected by a biologically stronger and tougher sex to being provided for.

[–]1Zanford0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Causality goes the other way.

SMV -> Happy life -> confidence, upbeat attitude, more SMV, etc. -> Women happy to be with you

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