Sending Facebook friend requests to females I haven't said more than "hi" to.

No real interaction. Just shy glances and smiles.

its needy and noobish, especially if you start shyly liking and commenting on her facebook shit now from the safety of your computer. She will be scared and think lesser of you.

True. I'm using a "like every other profile picture" policy right now. Or sometimes I'll switch it up and wait 3, 4 or 5 pics to not give off the pattern.



plowking, who is SacJB and what kind of vibe is that?

Definitely a creeper move that I'd advise against. The girl will usually accept just to be nice/avoid any awkwardness if she sees you again, but I don't know how many times I've been talking to a female friend who said "this guy I met ONCE just added me on Facebook what a creeper"

If you've never spoken to the girl and gotten confirmation FROM her that she has a Facebook, finding and sending her a request on FB is creepy.

Is that the correct use of a semicolon? I got kicked out of school before I learned about them.

Kind of; use it more like this.

lol, maybe...

I've done a lot of research on the subject because I find it hilarious. There is supposedly a divide at the top between Alpha and Sigma males. The difference would be one is an extrovert and the other and introvert. So, someone could be an "alpha" male and not be into that bullshit.

If you believe what you read online, you'd think that alpha males come in, sit down by people, spread their legs and start eating everyone's food. That ain't it, either.

Basically, I've come to define alpha as strength of will. No more, no less. My theory (yes, I have a theory) is that the most "alpha" males are strong with their two "sources of energy" which would be their eyes and their crotch.

If someone makes strong eye contact and stands/sits with their crotch displayed, they are an alpha male. A lot of people will do this but then shrivel up when competition comes along. Alpha/Sigma would be the people who are doing this regardless.

That being said, it all depends on how much the girl likes you. I've done tons of wild shit with Facebook. Some I regretted, some I didn't. I wouldn't say if a girl's really into you, she'll be down. But I will say this: If a girl is really into you, she'll not be turned off by it. She'll see it as you admitting you are into her, but then you'll still have to approach her.

Truth is, if a girl likes you, at least in my experience, there's nothing you can do to change her mind. But you still have to be a man and do something if you want her. It'll just never advance past a certain stage. She WILL get tired of throwing herself at you, though.

Nope, you need two independent clauses. The first one is a fragment.

no thats worse than beta.

thats omega.

people give beta wayyy too bad of a rep.

beta means servant, second place, white knight, treats their girl good.
betas are likely smarter than alphas too.


it's not the worst thing in the world. most betas will have many gfs throughout their life, are civil, polite, nice, abide by morals, are pretty comfortable around all kind of people and the issue with them is that they are scared of leading/straying from the pack. when u have a million people striving to be alpha.. guess what happens? Afghanistan or russia



thats a hell of a lot better than the third rate "men" (i use that term loosely) in the misc and ish who are fake it till they make it alphas.


we should just have a system where we kinow what some dudes are good at and use that to compliment a civilization.

alpha males are a joke in this day and age. the sociopathic white collar hedge fund manager metrosexuals are at the top of the food chain and they relaly r not something to aspire to (more on this later)


jordan is a fvcking piece of shit of a human being.

sir thomas more and howard roark are more loner types and people who devote themselves to their codes of honor.. they are infinitely more commendable than a run of the mill affliction wearing f*cktard bozo.

even tess of the durbevilles is cooler than them.

well da battle continues..
