A dose of realism
Game hasn’t changed my dating strategy, what I know, and what I don’t know, and I suspect it’s been the same for most other women as well. Men are just as equally in denial about what they want as women can be, and probably to similar extents, so, no, I don’t trust most male advice. In fact, any sort of new effective measure given to me has been by other women, just like how the larger male-directed Game sphere is reliably trusted upon by other men. So, a lot of you men are going to spout off about how women are irrational, fickle, emotional creatures who lie to themselves, but it’s the very fact that we emotional, interpersonal creatures that makes us intuitively great at manipulation and pop-psychology.
I’ve posted pictures of myself freely on the internet, so most of you know I’m not beauty queen material. So how do I weasel my way into committed relationships with men who are attractive, good earners with good jobs, intelligent (!) and generally desired? I don’t. It just happens. I suspect it’s because authenticity, a sense of humour, bearable conversation, and intelligence count for a lot. I’m sure a lot of other women who lack these qualities are equally if not more naturally feminine and giving than me.
The point is, any self-aware human being knows what is effective based on the results they are getting as a person. I don’t really take some Random Internet Dude’s assertion that being smart or pursuing higher education is going to reduce my dating market value – oh, no!!! I don’t want to appeal to some plebeian guy with plebeian tastes. Real life tells me that the men I’m attracted to respond best to particular facets of my personality or appearance, and that’s what I run with.
