Trust Issues

I was driving with a friend of mine and his wife to a promo last month. The parking at this particular gig was packed so it made sense to take one car and as I sat in the back seat I observed the behaviors and connected them to the conversation his wife and he were having while we drove. He was driving as well as any other guy I know; observant, careful, efficient, casual, basically a good driver, I didn’t even give his driving much mind. However, judging from the nervousness and fidgety behavioral tics of his wife you’d think he was drunk and reckless.

She clung tightly to the “oh shit” handle you see above the passenger-side window in most SUVs today. Her body language was one of fear trying to maintain polite composure, but every time we’d slow for traffic or a stop she would gesture with her hands as if she were bracing herself for impact. She simply did not trust her husband in the driver’s seat. She’d insist he switch lanes miles ahead of a turn so as to be ready to make the turn, or she’d coyly ask him to slow down when we were on the highway.

I see this a lot in couples where the power dynamic is one where the woman is the tacit authority of the relationship. These two were a textbook example. The buzz word term for it is ‘passive aggressive’ behavior, but that behavior is prompted by a root-level influence of women’s security need. My friend, being the Beta he is, made every attempt to calm his wife’s fears by accommodating her passive (and some not so passive) posturing and requests. It still wasn’t enough. She simply doesn’t trust the man she’s been married to for 10 years with her safety – regardless of his actions.

Now, from a Red Pill perspective, it’s important to bear in mind that women are always looking for an emotional rush whether positive or negative. I detail this in Indignation but in the absence of indignation, women will actively create it for themselves. Any PUA worth his salt knows that leaving an emotional impression on a woman is a key to seduction. Some men can do this effortlessly and often unaware depending on the social context and circumstances he surrounds himself with. These are guys we think are ‘naturals’ even though the learning process and the trial, error, reward mechanisms of it for him are just an internalized part of his personality. However, making this emotional impression can be learned, expressed ‘naturally’ and it can be internalized.

When we look at the dual nature of Hypergamy we tend to focus primarily on the Alpha Fucks side of women’s sexual strategy. For obvious reasons, it’s the part guys tend to have the most interest in, and since seduction is the key to STRs and LTRs, it’s also the part guys need to develop most. It’s tough for most Blue Pill men to behave counter to what their conditioning has taught them. Just like my friend’s driving here, most guys believe that comfort, trust, rapport, friendship, appeasement, and generally self-sacrificing are what’s at the heart of a good relationship. All of course based on the mystical “open communication” trope.

Selfish vs Self-Interest

Vox Day had an interesting back and forth with Kitten Holiday about this dynamic this weekend:

https://twitter.com/voxday/status/762307577560563712

For men who’ve been conditioned to believe that the key to success with women is to play nice and solve women’s problems for them with patient understanding, suggesting selfishness is attractive to women is counterintuitive. However, agreeableness and humility in men have been associated with a negative predictor of sex partners. So is it selfishness that makes a guy attractive or arousing?

I’ve suggested in the past that it is actually men who dare to place themselves at the center of their lives who make the most significant emotional impact upon women. This emotional impression is a byproduct of men who make themselves their first priority and when this prioritization becomes an internalized second nature to a man we say that he’s made himself his Mental Point of Origin.

I’m clarifying this here because it’s easy to conflate ‘enlightened self-interest’ with “selfishness”. A common criticism among the MGTOW set is that a man investing himself into anything with the express purpose of attracting women is vanity or wasted effort. However, it’s defining the point where this personal investment in oneself crosses over into having the effect of being an attractive trait to women that needs some more clarification. I covered this in Crisis of Motive, and unfortunately, it’s a line that’s subjective to the man who’s invested himself in virtually anything that uniquely benefits him and is attractive/arousing for women.

So we have two countermanding imperatives here. Men are conditioned, personally and publicly, to believe that niceness, comfort, and trust are the keys to success with women (whom we are told will have an affinity and appreciation for it). All of these Blue Pill qualities are pro-social attributes, yet in practice, in the real world, we observe men with anti-social, ‘selfish’ interest are rewarded with women’s attention. Self-interested men make a more significant emotional impression.

When we contrast this with the two aspects of women’s sexual strategy we see that the Blue Pill (pro-social) traits align with the Beta Bucks side of Hypergamy, while the ‘selfish’ (anti-social) aspects align with the arousing Alpha Fucks desires of women. For the Blue Pill invested man, it’s baffling to see how ‘selfish’ men are rewarded with intimacy, genuine desire, and sex. What they lack is a complete understanding of women’s dual sexual natures.

“So I gotta be an asshole to get women to notice me? Chicks really dig jerks?”

I’ve been reading this response from newly unplugged nice guys for as long as I’ve been writing. It’s the binary response I’ve come to expect from guys still on the fence with regard to Red Pill awareness, but it goes back to the negative associations they have with making themselves their own mental point of origin. It’s ‘selfishness’ not self-interest and this is exactly the opposite of what they’ve been taught will resolve problems for them.

This then comes back to my first point about women’s need for security. I’ve been married for over 20 years now, and for as good a marriage as I have, I still have my doubts that Mrs. T trusts me implicitly with her life.

It’s ironic because I actually saved her life when we were first married. There was a very swift moving river we used to walk our dogs along when we lived in Tahoe. It was spring and the river was high from snowmelt runoff, and it was cold – as in take your breath away before you’re paralyzed cold. One of our dogs had spied a few ducks on the opposite side of the river and bolted into it to go after them. About half way across he realizes it was a stupid idea and turns back. He couldn’t make it and the river swept him downstream. We both ran down the river after him to a point where he’d pass and Mrs. T jumped in to catch him. She goes numb in seconds, but she caught the dog by the collar. I know I’m going to have to go in to get them now so I prep in my head what to do. I get in now and grab the dog and bodily throw him up on the steep bank. Then I do the same with Mrs. T right before the water is so cold I can barely move. I managed to grab a large tree root in the bank I’d seen earlier to haul myself out.

In spite of that very memorable event, I’m not sure I have my wife’s implicit trust in this respect. I know that sounds bad, but even after all of that, there was no acknowledged appreciation for it. I was just doing what a man is expected to do. In many other aspects, I have my wife’s trust, but I wonder if the want for an emotional impression isn’t buffered by a need for security.

In my friend’s case, this lack of trust is manifested in his wife’s demeanor and interactions with him. The more Beta the man a woman’s paired herself with the more evident her need for security becomes a part of their relationship. Remember that security comes in many different forms. It’s entirely possible for a dutiful Beta to be a great provider, but still not be trusted with his decision making or his capacity to protect his woman from harm.

Women today are already raised to never put their trust in men as it is. Men are at best lovable buffoons, at worst untrustworthy incorrigible players. Popular culture directs women to only rely on themselves, to only trust in their own, implicitly correct decisions and directions – and then absolve them of any negative consequence of those decisions. Thus, we have several generations of women who claim the authority role in their LTRs and relegate their men to only marginally trusted companions.

All of that said, I would suggest that men opt to not concern themselves with so-called “trust issues” with women. Women’s feral nature is founded in Hypergamy and part of that nature will always be to doubt the quality of the man she’s paired herself with. It may seem ‘selfish’, but placing yourself as your first priority will be far more appreciated and accepted than a man attempting to endlessly earn the trust from a woman that can only be temporal at best. Your lack of concern over her status of trusting you will have much more impact than trying to appease her for it.

Beta men are endlessly told that a woman’s trust and rapport, her comfort level with a guy, is essential to her being intimate or sexual, or having a good relationship. Those are the guys who feel the sting the most when they see a woman at her feral best fuck the hot guy she met the same night who made a significant emotional impression on her. The guy who invested his interests in himself and she happened to be along for his ride.

Trust is just a convenient term used by women to vet for Beta men. ‘Trust’ only amounts to a list of prerequisites and rules for a Beta who believes it’s his duty to fulfill them, which are never an afterthought for women with more Alpha men.

The core difference between an Alpha and a Beta is that the Alpha invests the results of his performance burden in himself, a Beta in a succession of women who fleece him for all he has.

When they say opposites attract, they are correct in that men who are non-dominant and avoid conflict, attract women who are domineering and conflict seeking.

I have no doubt that in your friend’s head he was working very hard to not tell her “shut the hell up” or some variant thereupon, yet he didn’t want the fight.

In MRP it is often written “Trust, but verify” with respect to women.

We should not mind if women take the same type of approach, which is basically what they are (consciously or not) doing when shit testing someone they are in a LTR with.

Passive-Aggressiveness is something I encounter all the time. It’s exhausting to deal with because you have to be saying “no” and basically being an asshole all the time. The “Trust issues” seem strongest in girls who display Cluster B traits and who project their mommy issues onto me. I see this in situations where I’m taking a Latin dance class and the girl doesn’t “Trust” me to know the sequence being taught. I see these “trust issues” when ordering a pizza. They become endless shit-tests requiring Agree and Amplify, Amused Mastery and constant “soft-nexts”. How to conquer? Choose better girls.… Read more »

Good to see this topic up cos it’s well timed for me; I’m having trouble with this stage of my development.
It could just be the ‘don’t be selfish’ which I would be given if I simply wasn’t being deferential enough as a youngster, but it’s also the feeling of this change would be abandoning the male drive to be part of something that is larger than yourself.
Women naturally put themselves first every time, and it seems like centering on yourself makes you more like them.

If a guy’s mental point of origin is himself, is it surprising that a woman would subconsciously not trust him to save her over him? If she knows, deep… Read more »

This is a very interesting topic. My husband sometimes scares me in bumper-to-bumper traffic because he waits, in my opinion, too long to put on the breaks. But when I complain my husband just gives me a shit-eating grin and says “makes you feel alive, don’t it?”

I do trust my husband implicitly. Even if he stoppes late for me I trust him to drive when I’m sleeping. He also has a concealed carry license- and l totally trust him to take care of us with it if needed.

Regarding marriage, I think women do value commitment. The trick is it has to be voluntary. In today’s world if you get married your commitment is no longer voluntary. It now becomes mandatory and therefore meaningless. If you can’t walk the minute you need to, you are no longer a free man. Young men, simply so no to marriage.

She texted the boy while on her honeymoon.

In nearly every case where a teacher copulates with a student, the element of feral desire is always there. She often times pays for the room and dinner accompanying the tryst. They essentially become the “beta males” in these instances.

Now, could a 16 year old boy have that much game? While they definitely carry a devil-may-care attitude, that isn’t the complete picture here.

These cases show us that a woman’s feral desire primarily lies in a male’s virility.

From the linked article:

“This is what marriage is; not necessarily boring per se (although it certainly can be more often than not), but ordinary. It’s normal, common, or becomes so. Think about how many people who’ve lived, married and died on planet earth who did exactly the same things as you.”

Because it’s a DHV. The husbands of the other women don’t treat them so “horribly” and she’s rubbing it in their faces.

Men are conditioned, personally and publicly, to believe that niceness, comfort, and trust are the keys to success with women (whom we are told will have an affinity and appreciation for it). This is the standard line in all the “relationship” books, vids, articles, etc. When a man finds his woman is acting up, acting strange, deadbedrooming him, being passive aggressive, etc. and he goes looking for advice, this is what he will find 99% of the time. This is one way that men get betaized – they look at a relationship having problems, say to themselves “This needs fixin'”,… Read more »

Is it really “men placing themselves at the center” or just “men not placing women at the center”? The difference seems really important.

@Nitpicunt:

I’ll use Patrese to indirectly answer that question. The late Carroll Smith, an auto racing engineer and mentor to young drivers, said there was one thing that all successful, professional race drivers had in common.

They would sell their own mother for a ride.

@Rollo It’s been a while since you’ve appended my name. Hopefully because I didn’t express myself well. Not because I said something contradictory to your thoughts in the OP or was saying something “wrong” or offensive (correct me if I did, or tell me if I’m annoying). I did abruptly change lanes there with the mention of pathologic female attention whoring which is a somewhat different subject, but related and much more common.

@ kfg,

“To take it a step further, when she next goes to her bridge circle she will blabber on and on, indignantly, about it and how “awful” her husband was.”

“Why?”

“Because it’s a DHV. The husbands of the other women don’t treat them so “horribly” and she’s rubbing it in their faces.”

“And she appreciates having been given that.”

That was spot on perfect, kfg. It sinks in a little deeper for me every day due to posts like that.

@ Tim,

I thought White Knights WERE beta males. Can you elaborate?

This is not a “trust” issue. It is a dominance issue. The bitch is using “safety” as a hostage in a power play. Solution? Pull over, yank, her out of the car by her hair and pimp,slap her into next week. Give her a reason to be concerned about her “safety”.

@ Colbert White Knights advocate for pedestalizing females without regard to their content of their character and at the peril of advancing any one man’s sexual strategy. What Tim was getting at was a broader issue. And that is of why Betas become boring. Boring is a problem in 2016. Boring is the lack of desire of women to fuck Betas. There was the first set of books. Man does this (work, provide, come home to domestication) Woman does that (be feminine, clean the house, take care of the kids). That ship has sailed (kinda, some old guys like Sentient… Read more »

If a guy’s mental point of origin is himself, is it surprising that a woman would subconsciously not trust him to save her over him?

@ SJF, Thanks for the elaboration (I think of alpha and beta as being two separate pyramids with one pyramid representing a totally DIFFERENT mindset placed directly on top and above a separate beta pyramid with it’s own DIFFERENT mindset. I’m confused on how there could even be anything as an alpha WK, if alpha is a MINDSET.

@Colbert Imagine if you will a greater Beta, lesser Alpha. He has reserves. Reserves are an redpill mindset (he knows female nature, he has infinite ability to masculine self improve in a masculine mindset). The Beta can provide (with reserves), the Alpha can generate respect, admiration and desire. If you win the million dollar lottery, you can then proceed to compromise, be comfortable with not being in control of your woman, and relax. You won. She is willing to come along with your amused mastery. Think of that. The original post spoke of that come along for the ride. Or… Read more »

It ebbs and flows like you drive a car, it is not all straight line connect the dots like a train on rails, sometimes you need to hit the gas, sometimes brake, sometimes switch gears. Pay attention to all three, heads up in real time. watch the revs… Attraction = Gas. Visceral excitement, press it hard and faster you will go, flush she will get. Stay on it, you may hit the wall….

The Patrise and Wife video is an excellent example of appropriate male and female interaction. He took her through a range of emotions and calmed her down with a pat on the knee. She was giddy and overcome with joy like a little girl at the end. Beautiful.

POTUS has submitted to the FI imperative so though he still maintains a vey strong frame, it is still blue pill frame/beta frame, bawling away on national tv n all. A betaized alpha is a beta for almost all practical purposes.

Oft understated in the manosphere. As if it doesn’t matter. Often understood, but should be understood as “out of control”.

“POTUS has submitted to the FI imperative so though he still maintains a very strong frame, it is still blue pill frame/beta frame”

Depends on whether his sexual strategy is actually working. The only true determinant of whether a man’s frame is working is whether his strategy is working.

He is Alpha (the leader of the country). If he is incongruent with he doesn’t have agency with the first lady. Sexual strategy is sexual strategy.

In other words: Who gives a shit how you are defined if your strategy is working. Welcome to a new SJF Maxim……

Hard for women to trust a man without some status que to go with it. Like a job title. No matter how many times he displays his competency. And women are so often worse case scenario, that Rollo’s wife may not entirely trust him with her life. There’s always a thought of what if something bigger, meaner, whatever takes him out? What is she going to do then? And if she really didn’t have much appreciation for her life actually being saved, I say it’s due to women tend to hate admitting when a rash decision or action they make… Read more »

“Beta men are endlessly told that a woman’s trust and rapport, her comfort level with a guy, is essential to her being intimate or sexual, or having a good relationship.” Women will shit test men by trying to convince them that all these things are necessary for a good relationship. Even when their relationship is already good. They want him to communicate more, talk more, open up more, etc., under the guise that there is anything fundamentally wrong with the relationship (there probably isn’t). All this is simply a manifestation of their natural Hypergamous insecurity. But if you go along… Read more »

“A common criticism among the MGTOW set is that a man investing himself into anything with the express purpose of attracting women is vanity or wasted effort.” As a man who’s been thoroughly tempted to go MGTOW, my criticism of the MGTOW idea of jumping through hoops is that it’s based (IMO) on the (probably repressed/subconscious) belief that relationships with women exclusively on a man’s terms is not possible. Women are fun. I only ignore this when I feel like women are inaccessible to me on my terms. Like “they’re out of my grasp and I’ll never be able to… Read more »

@ Softek, This is one problem I’m having with the whole MGTOW thing too and why I am beginning to take on a different RP perspective and move into a different camp. A refusal to learn to master women in your life in terms of intimate relations (drawing boundaries and saying the word “no” and making yourself your own mental point of origin), is a refusal to attempt to master your own masculinity and develop a positive and strong masculine frame, IMO, at least in relation to the opposite gender. Mastery over women involves mastery over yourself as a male.… Read more »
