I’m not a fan of cross-posting but here is something on Roissy I was just talking about-
(Note- Roissy deleted a bunch of posts after the Lady Raine fiasco, apparently including this one. I don’t see the problem so hopefully he will undo this at some point.)
This guy definitely had his shit together. The omegas who encounter him probably dream of his sweet life. I know I would. And yet, the same thing has happened to him that you would think would only happen to a weak man- an apparently good woman turns into a raving shrew.
On The Spearhead we have a Kipling poem on the female nature-
I have a little trouble understanding this. My mother seemed to strongly believe in the husband as the decision maker and leader of the family, even though my father did not actually fill this role. She never gave him shit about anything, ever, and they never fought. It was not until I was an adult I realized they, especially she, were pretty unhappy.
I think men would like to be with a woman with whom they can let down their guard sometimes, a woman they can show kindness, generosity and vulnerability to without thought being a weakling or a sucker. Men can relax around their true friends- isn’t your wife, for God’s sake, a true friend?
I think what this guy feels is betrayal, of the deepest and most personal sort. His sweet bride, so different from the others, turned out to be just another whore who needs a hard heart and a strong pimp hand. His “pretty lie” was exposed.
If men fear game, it’s at least as much because they are afraid it will work as that it won’t. If it doesn’t work- another snake oil promise shown false. That’s not too hard to take- the world is full of lying hucksters. You won’t get to your majority without being taken a time or two. If it works- then all women are just bitches, stupid bitches at that who can be fooled by a nerd pretending to be a pimp. Most men really want to be loved as themselves, and the hope that it will happen someday carries them through many dark places.
I suppose a man who had a good relationship with his mother is better equipped to look at woman as something other than a source of unconditional love. Trying to replace the maternal relationship is deadly of course. Expecting your wife to be your friend isn’t as unrealistic, I would hope, but maybe that’s a pretty lie too.
