Is It Unattractive To Be Happy?

A very interesting study crossed my path from a client this morning I had to share. Basically the gist is that women who displayed “happiness” were deemed most attractive… while men were deemed the least. Meanwhile, men who displayed “pride” were considered sexiest; women the least. I think we can agree off the bat that …

How To Socialize Once You’re “Serious”

As many of you know, I’m not one of the more “responsible” manosphere figures. I do not adhere to the stoic philosophy so much as the epicurean — I drink, celebrate, flaneur — life for me is about joie de vivre, spontaneity… not so much regimentation.

Is Game Always The Same?

Stumbled upon a really good exchange on Twitter that dovetails nicely with a lot of what we’ve been talking about with “context” recently: I love the point that Rivelino made. And it begs a very serious question: Is it game if she’s lower value than you? What is game, really? Now, I don’t want to get …

Are Hot Girls… Smart?

Heard an interesting comment the other day about models I wanted to riff off it: The tweet reminded me of an email I had written a few months back… where I posited that 7s and 8s were generally “the best” women that to commit to, as they had the most balanced personalities and were less …
