i wouldn't even dignify giving a click to this idiot. i didn't watch it but based on his title/premise, it would be time in my life i could never get back.

people who deserve respect get respect. people who don't don't.

Albeit, I noticed the more calm I am, the more the people around me respect me. I also learned how to pass male **** tests because of him, and it actually works. People really don't mess with me after meeting me.

I guess the problem is that we're in a pandemic and none of the women come to poker. I can definitely tell one of them wants to ****, but she's like a 4. I think I'm getting a lot better at showing masculinity and confidence because people like and respect me a lot more.

I feel like equilibrium is a balance between AMS and the thread.
dude, just be yourself. stop trying to find some magic way for things. in 10-15-20 years you're going to look back at this and realize people don't give a phuc. if your a goofy guy, who the hell cares?! you'll find someone who likes you for being you.

Am I the only person here who watched the full video? LOL.

You didn't miss much though. It is as cringe-worthy as you think it is. What's sadder is that he appears to have a ton of followers who believe what he says.

67, what's YOUR definition of being a real man? Not what you think a clown like AMS or mf'ing roosh says, but for you? What's important? I have a loud ****ing laugh and that's just the way it is, I also don't find it shameful to have it known that I think something is funny. I'm jolly and probably therefore fat af. Neither of those things has ever kept me from getting laid. Being the man I am, whether that is accepted or not by some BS insecure alpha type, attracts women of many different types. Don't let your autism make you feel like you have to ascribe to some mediocre view of what a man is. Be you. It'll be enough.

Re: ***"The Pen:" Official LLSNL Chat Thread***

Rtp - arrogance and hubris can be two qualities of over achievers. It prevents you from dissuaded from your goals despite what others think. Being self aware how others perceive you can be a positive whether you disagree with their opinion or not.

Do you think many narrcisstic over achievers would have acheived so much if they didn't believe in themselves and brush away the naysayers?

Keep on trucking...

Re: ***"The Pen:" Official LLSNL Chat Thread***

A few things:

I am absolutely myself, I just don't do everything I want to do. At no point in my day am I playing a character to get people to like me. For example, this is something directly related to autism, when I get really excited or really happy I have a reflex where I squeeze my knees as hard as I can and get the biggest smile on my face that my face allows. This is something I don't do, because it's really ****ing weird, and I could miss out on a friend or a girl because of this. I absolutely do it in private because it's who I am. Also, when I find something really funny I have a tendency to laugh really loud and for exaggerated periods of time - this is another thing I don't do, because it's really ****ing weird and I could miss out on a friend or a girl. Something I also learned not to do - I love asking people hypothetical questions that I know will trip them up and make them confused, for whatever reason it makes me laugh really hard; this is something I stopped doing because it's really ****ing weird and I could miss out on a friend or a girl.

Though I do still do some really weird things. For example, the home game allows you to bring food in, so every night I bring in a huge bag of peanuts, two bananas, and two apples with an apple cutter. No one else brings in food. Literally every night someone tells me how weird I am, questions me, or gets annoyed by it. I always say something along the lines of "I don't give a **** what you think, this is what I eat, so I'm gonna keep bringing it regardless of your opinion."

The point is that I take out the really weird things I enjoy doing because I don't want to not be able to go out with a girl because of these things. Yet I still do other weird things that I don't think are disqualifying.

I'm not naturally a really calm person, but I've learned from being calm men and women alike respect you more and want to get acquainted with you more. Back when I used to be as wired as I naturally am, I had a lot less friends and respect, and women didn't take me seriously.

I want to date and **** extremely sexy women. I don't want to have to settle for a 5 or a 6. This is why I'm really trying to polish myself and also make a lot of money. I want to really put my best foot forward, and I will consciously make the changes that are needed. I promise you if I acted with no filter and was an autistic freak, my only chance would be if I became filthy rich.

If the answer is A then I'd offer Dan Bilzerian and say yeah that's what you see but it's all fake / paid for and the whole world knows it and at the end of the day none of it is real and when the cameras are off it's a sad place to be.

If it's B then you can get lots of good advice from lots of different people, in here (a lot of the dudes in here are smart with lots of life experience to speak from) and out in the real world.

If it's C, my advice would be that if you think you equate showing masculinity and confidence with people liking and respecting you, you're gonna get kicked in the dick a few times before you figure out that's not the case.

Just be yourself dude, don't waste the energy putting on a mask for people. It's exhausting. Women see through that macho alpha bullshit, and fast. The ones that love that crap are not worth your time anyway. Being comfortable in your own skin is what matters most.
this so much

67, i know i harped earlier about clothing and presentation but seriously dude, that's 99.9% of it

if you are wearing a form fitting polo or colored shirt and something on your feet not sold at foot locker with a clean haircut and clean shaven face you are going to be 10x more attractive to the opposite sex and 10x more respected by your fellow males

in college i often had the "let my hair grow until i couldn't see anymore then get a crew cut and repeat" mentality and over time i began to notice that first week or two after getting the cut there was a stark difference in how other men who didn't know me interacted with me

professors took me more seriously, people would apologize and back off if they bumped into me in the keg line, etc etc, at that point i started paying more attention to my hair, it took a few more years for the clothing to kick in but these days you will rarely find me wearing anything below business casual and i own and regularly wear several blazers and pairs of boat shoes etc

whether or not people are cognizant of it, they judge you the minute they first set eyes upon you and what AMS should really be telling you is to buy a nice collared shirt but he's an idiot and instead blames all his rejection not on his failures to be presentable and desirable but frames it as the women being at fault for not being proper women and a proper women in his mind is one without any personal desire or free will and while those women exist, they are broken souls who are both uncommon and not ideal choices by any means

Lol, I never give up at 20 questions; You must have missed my last question ("proggy arty?"). My memory is horrible but I do think I now remember a chatter mentioning them so that probably helped.

67,

I had a buddy in college who had basically the same thing as his goal in life - bang all the hot chicks and make all the money. The rest of us just did our thing, got regular jobs (if you call structural engineering a regular job), and got wives and families.

10 years ago next month he put a bullet through his brain because those pursuits made him so ****ing miserable he couldn't see any other way. He ended his life with no friends because at 35 he was still a frat boy chasing the next piece of ass he could conquer and everyone around him grew up.

I went to his funeral. I was one of maybe 6 people who weren't related to him. One of the saddest things I'd ever seen. Not because he was gone, but because the eulogist only had generic platitudes to say about the guy.

I tell you this because I'd rather not see anyone else (even someone I've never met) end up on a path that ends the way it did for him.

Agree with the whole post but this really deserves emphasis. A broken person who can only attract broken people shouldn't be spreading that image as a positive. Learning how to attract people with healthy self images and seeing them as worthy equals instead of items to be possessed is a worthwhile pursuit. And btw women can be both personally strong and sexually submissive, they're aren't mutually exclusive traits.

Yeah, it'll be neat watching the little guy grow up (while not having the parental responsibilities) so looking forward to it.
