Haha, totally convinced about the greatness of the ‘alpha male’ as all a woman ever wants. Well, the ‘alpha male’ is not much more then a woman’s disposable tampon. Easy to use, easy to dump. The ‘beta male’ is more difficult, as he is more interested in depth in relationships and something long term and love and love is a scary thing. So yes the beta gets less pussy but pussy is not his main interest anyway his main interest is the depth of the connection he can have with being with a woman.

I’m quite happy that a guy like this didn’t found your blog in his younger years and decided to spend his time in the gym and start some business and earn lots of money just so he could fuck woman. He shines much brighter as he is now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8V94WQjMAw

I think the vision most people on this blog on what a man should be is very limited and narrow minded.

Yes, I have opinions. No opinions allowed in a reply? I have more opinions: Like that all this differation between man and woman doesn’t make so much sense. People are complex mixtures of conventions, backgrounds, hormones, genes, brain chemistry, education, skills, affected by social environments etc. etc. and that makes up a Person. Why talk so much about ‘man’ and ‘woman’ Man should be like this, woman are like that, bla bla. Well guess what, what might work on one person might not work at all on an other. Why talk about games, competition, winning, losing, scoring? Why not talk… Read more »

Hey Everyone, Long time AFC, first time Alpha. I just want to say, I’ve grown to love the community. You guys are amazing. I also have something I hope you guys can help. To keep it short, a while back (5 months), I became reacquainted with an old friend, who used to be the girlfriend of my old friend, up until he cheated on her; or so she told me. Fast forward, we meet up for drinks on the basis of catching up and we ended up making out, which ultimately led to us getting out in my car. Things… Read more »

To get a better answer you should probably go to red pill reddit. There is not enough info on her, so “probably” will become a star here. As far as I see it: She reconnected with you 5 month ago. Probably she has been checking her “surroundings” for some time. You are (most probably) one of her “cash in” pool. Of course you don’t know that. Probably she is in her epiphany right about now and on the lookout for the best BB she can find. This should be apparent to you because “when she wants to fuck you –… Read more »

Hi Rollo, I’m a dedicated follower of the Rational Male blog for cca 1 year now and I’ve got your paperbacks as well. Your insights have completely changed my life… for the better, and I’ve directed several friends to your site for advice too. But, unfortunately, not all of them speaks english well enough to be able to read your articles. So I’m thinking about translating your books to my native language.

I’m in the same boat as many other men that have commented on your blog. I’m in the military, and had a somewhat “invincible” mindset for years. That is until a very disgusting end to an LTR completely shattered me. I was searching for answers and saw a link to your blog. I spent 10 hours straight reading anything that caught my eye. I just finished reading The Rational Male, and I’m looking forward to Preventive Medicine. Thank you for sharing your insights with us.

Hello everyone and Rollo. I am just finishing your book preventive medicine. I am female I should add although I hope that fact doesn’t change the answer to your question. I’m really interested in MRAs and the related dialog he, and am aware of Esther Villar ‘s opinion of women like me. In the book you mention that women love opportunistically (I apologize if that’s not a real word) and that women first love what the man is as a prerequisite to who a man is. You also mention that men “love for love’s sake” and this is what differs… Read more »

Rollo. Your blogs, videos,and, most of all, your book has helped me to finally unplug and see things for what they are. I feel smarter and more self aware now. I’ve begun to take some more time out of my life to focus on my passions, not for women, but for myself and I’ve never felt more determined. Be that for what it is (nothing short of revolutionary), I still can’t get a date to follow through. The hot ones always cancel last second and I don’t know exactly why. I know it’s something I’m either doing or not doing… Read more »

I keep coming back to this important idea: “desire cannot be negotiated” You do a good job discussing men in LTR’s attempting to rekindle attraction through misguided attempts to properly align himself with his woman, which of course only leads to failure and further frustration. But this also has important ramifications for physically unattractive men such as myself. When I analyse my previous actions and mistakes, I realize how much of what I did was motivated by a desire to preserve my ego and skip over this fundamental principle. So many bluepill rationalizations and strategies for winning over the women… Read more »

Rollo, I think a lot of your writing is insightful and useful, while often motivated by pain.. For a man to have to manipulate women into thinking they are something, implies they are already unworthy of love. I feel inflicting violence onto others for personal gain is worrying when put in the hands of (perhaps) unloved (real, deep love). I’m very interested in pyschology, and it seems, of all the red pillers you are one of the maturest, i would love to have a discussion about how love and compassion can still be achieved while maintaining ‘enlightened self interest’. I… Read more »

Hello Robert. I’m not going to answer for Rollo, but perhaps this will help you to understand red pill men a little more. I admit that I haven’t read those books, however it seems only logical that in order for any of these techniques to work both parties have to come to an agreement that from now on they both are going to utilize these strategies of mutual respect and compassion for their mutual benefit. Because if one of them will not it will end up with one party listening and trying hard to find a compromise while the other… Read more »

I just finished reading the best of year one and i just want to say thank you Mr. Rollo. The information on this site is mind blowing and really helped me so far deal with red pill rage after i listened to an audio book version of the manipulated man by Ester Vilar. I plan buying your book and the 48 laws of power. I wont go too much into my story but i am a 36 year old male who was a hardcore beta in a LTR and im now learning to be an alpha and regain my freedom.

I have all three books, I am on the first one. Let me tell you…. the little bit of stuff I been reading have been REALLY leading me to enlightened self-interest and having those “ah-ha!” moments. I am completely shocked that I did not learn of these things sooner. But the good part is what I read by far, I am able to build on what I already have naturally. And it is really FREEING rather than having fear of losing one girl or whatever. Way too long I have made this horrible mistake but I been working on this… Read more »

I easily attract 30 somethings and go on dates but the problem is I keep getting put in the friend zone. After reading this book I finally figured out what I was doing wrong.
After making a few adjustments I can see an immediate impact.

So i have this question that I have been thinking about as i go through the book. Since this book was written 6 years ago a lot of things have changed in the social world. The main thing being the rise of activity on two social media platforms: Snapchat and Instagram. Does anyone have any advice that relates to intergender dynamics when it comes to social media? (youtube links, articles, videos, etc…) I find myself following attractive girls on instagram, DMing them, getting their snapchat, etc. Is this the way to use this platform? Should i ignore the convenience of… Read more »
