The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.
It's a famous movie reference. Michael Douglas played a married guy who had an affair with a crazy chick played by Glenn Close. When he tried to break it off she went crazy and stated stalking him and doing all sorts of weird stuff. At one point she snuck into his house and boiled his kid's pet rabbit on the stove.
Since then the term, "Bunny boiler" has been used for crazy chicks who get too obsessed and do crazy stuff.
Quick field reissuesWent one two dates with a girl, and we had a lot in common. Both liked the same books, ect. The only catch was this girl had SEVERE anxiety and depression. You could tell by her body language alone, but she also made reference to it a couple times in conversation which confirmed my suspicions.
This immediately made me nervous, because while I wanted to get laid I also didn't want to ruin this chicks life or something. I got more nervous and less physical in my interactions. As I did this, she further withdrew in her body language. The conversation was great/intellectual but not sexual at all because the signals I was getting clearly said that wasn't safe territory.
The day after date 2, she texted me that she wasn't interested which honestly was a relief. However, it also made a very important point in my mind - even with a girl who's life is a wreck of anxiety, depression, weird hang ups and cultural repression of sexual instincts wants to feel the mythical "tingles". I let her set the frame of the interaction by tiptoing around her issues, instead of being bold and intentional.
I'm relieved that I don't have to potentially deal with the drama and shit that would've come from trying to form a connection with a woman like that. I've also learned a valuable lesson.Read More
@Lionsmane8 This is absolutely true. I have one that is constantly trying to upgrade her position despite me being clear that I'm not interested in anything but her butt.
It isn't that she thinks she can upgrade, but she's constantly testing to see if I cave.
just to add, I was an athlete also, but wasn't gonna go pro, so I focused on academics for college. My plan was to get an engineering degree, which I did. college was not expensive way back when I went, it was before the govt started guaranteeing student loans which then caused the costs to explode.
