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

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.

Good rule of thumb; anyone who calls themselves an alpha male is the worst person you will ever meet.


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

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.
