Is sadness an attraction killer?

December 4, 2021

I was at a party/gathering recently that I organized, and this one girl was giving me some IOIs. Kept looking at and chatting with me, hugged me before she left and texted afterwards. One thing she said was interesting though. She said that everytime I think nobody's looking I look sad. I'm wondering, does looking sad, or even openly talking about how I deal with my depression, kill my game? This is just an example. I'm obviously not going to explain why I look sad to this girl, if anything AA, but it got me thinking.

I wonder if there are two ways to portray sadness. The first is to complain about it, tall about how things are falling apart and how hard life is. This makes me look weak. But the other way would be to be honest about the struggles I've faced, how I deal with them and how I see beauty in them. This makes me look embattled.

Any thoughts? Obviously I could just shut up and act like I'm okay all the time, but I feel like there are some conversations and contexts where it's better to be honest.

I battled sometimes extreme depression/anxiety from 16-33. Talk to your bros. Talk on here. Talk to me. Don’t talk to women.

Agreed, but there's a difference between talking about depression and seeking advice or sympathy.

Dont do it. Dont ever show them weakness, not only does it dry up the panties but they're keen on weaponizing it down the road should it suit their purposes.

We hold frame here at TRP for a reason.

f*ck bro, I been doing this on purpose to shoot myself in the foot and make myself suffer

I completely agree with you but then again, I am a man.

Women know if you are sad before you open your mouth. I’ve had women detect Im sad before I even knew I was sad. Bitching is an attraction killer but sadness and not bitching about it is an attraction enhancer lol just stay on top of ya shit

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