@Yorknew Yes, what lots of men NEVER get the chance to experience is the mindset you obtain when you have personal abundance. It's like women just know you have options, by the way you carry yourself over every little interaction. That's unfakeable confidence they smell a mile away. Bliss indeed
@Yorknew If you got them locked down, they'll provide different praise (enjoy things about you that men don't), feminine energy/charm (move you sexually), and provide a more emotional line of communication than what you get with other men (lots of my friends commit because their women is their only outlet for their feelings...)
@Yorknew Female value outside of sex: Feminine charm, Raising small children, Home support, Family extension, Anti-objectivist world view, Submissive companionship. There are a lot more out there. Take a look at the many works of art dedicated to this.
@Yorknew Being unskilled at anything requires a lot more patience/strategy. When a guy jumps to the worst possible situation whenever women are brought up it identifies a feature of his (probably malfunctioning) strategy. That being said, there is much overlap between dealing with women for sex and dealing with them for LTRs (see 25/25).
@Yorknew Its no coincidence that men with an established history in the SMP choose LTRs. Women have value outside of sex but they don't come with the ability/comfort to express it by default anymore. Getting them to the point where they are pleasant to be around is a mans job.
@Yorknew GLO means in the short term, as in, don't act more masculine when a woman enters the room then dial it back down when she leaves.
Faking it till you make it refers to long term improvement; you climb in steps, becoming more masculine over time, but not stepping backward.
