To fight the parable that “looks are all that matter” for getting laid, we look at a number of disadvantages of excellent seems to be you’ve possible by no means thought-about.
Hey, guys! Welcome again.
If final week’s submit the place we mentioned the significance of appears in pickup didn’t persuade you that appears truly are removed from being one of the essential features in assembly ladies, then this publish is for you.
So let’s shortly recap. Final week we mentioned how attractiveness can:
Provide help to give a great first impression and get the ball rolling for you. That is key as a result of you’ll want to begin someplace, however a begin is only a begin. Rather more than some primary early recreation flirting is required to get the woman.
Good appears permit a lady to simply accept and rationalize her attraction to you – nevertheless, there are different key elements that may assist you to obtain this.
Good appears are removed from being a recreation winner, however actually dangerous seems is a recreation killer.
Regarding the level above, higher seems to be could be achieved. Most guys can attain the minimal threshold. Right now we’ll talk about another features of appears that you could be not have thought-about.
To me, attractiveness is simply one other parameter one should modify to. Similar goes for common seems and dangerous seems. Personally, I’ve had occasions the place I didn’t care about my seems to be, and even received fats. Nevertheless, I presently spend lot extra time getting in form, dressing properly, and taking excellent care of my hair and trimming my facial hair.
It doesn’t matter what part I used to be going via, I had an equal quantity of lays. Nevertheless, take into account that once I was much less good wanting, I needed to “work” more durable to persuade women to offer me a shot, and the hooking part was more durable. However as soon as in, getting the woman was not that rather more troublesome.
However wait! That’s to not say that attractiveness don’t make it simpler for you. In truth, I undoubtedly acquired extra hooks once I wasn’t fats… so look and appears are essential.
Are There Disadvantages to Having Good Looks?
Positive. First, sustaining killer appears is HARD – taking good care of your pores and skin, understanding, sustaining a nutritious diet, and so forth. However on the subject of certainly one of my most lovely attribute – my hair – know that I spend tons of time and money taking good care of it.
What about you? For instance, do you pay for the most effective haircut or coiffure? Do you employ the correct shampoo? Most good hairstyles include a minimal of two-to-three merchandise that work collectively… and relating to type, so far as clothes and attire goes, there are hours of labor that may be put into creating a cool fashion.
However what about all of you who occur to be socially clever or perhaps simply actually cognitive basically? Sure, that is a bonus, particularly in relation to studying pickup and seduction.
What in case you are a persistent man who by no means provides up? Or somebody who learns quick? Or somebody with nice wealth? Or an enormous community?
All these traits might help you equally as a lot if no more than appears.
There are some points good wanting guys deal with that you simply’re in all probability not conscious of when you’ve by no means been one in every of them. I’ve seen this once I’ve hit the city with model-looking guys, and I observed the identical issues occurring to me as my seems improved through the years.
Moreover, “hotness” is relative – you’ve heard the saying, magnificence is within the eye of the beholder. It’s true. Guys you contemplate to be scorching is probably not scorching in a woman’s eye.
Let’s go over some drawbacks that come with being scorching.
Individuals Equate Good Looks to Dangerous Conduct
Identical to with very lovely women, one thing occurs in lots of males’s heads each time they work together with individuals. Typically scorching guys can come off as filled with themselves and too cocky, simply due to their attractiveness. I actually don’t perceive this phenomenon, nevertheless it typically creates a unfavorable impression in others.
“Look at me! I’m richer than you AND better looking,” stated the enormous douche.
Or perhaps it’s our popular culture that frames handsome individuals as overly narcissistic and cocky. There are plenty of handsome people on tv, in addition to within the music business, who have a tendency to return throughout as quite cocky and narcissistic. The overall inhabitants considerably assumes they’re all like that – that each one handsome individuals are cocky and filled with themselves.
Oh, and let’s not overlook the social media wizards and Instagram posers who additionally are typically overly cocky of their physique language and show somewhat narcissistic attitudes. That definitely doesn’t assist.
Once more, these people don’t symbolize all handsome individuals. Actually, they’re solely consultant of a small minority. However sadly, this minority is so expressive and so “loud” that they have a tendency to trigger a adverse bias in the direction of good wanting individuals on this means.
Reality is, scorching women could be bitches. However not all the time. The truth is, most of the ones we see dominating social media are respectable individuals. However a number of guys solely get to see these scorching women on social media and in golf equipment, which have a tendency to draw solely probably the most cocky and narcissistic amongst them – thus a pattern bias is created to perpetuate the stereotype.
However it isn’t true that each one scorching women in golf equipment are bitches. The truth is, I might even say that almost all are regular, cool, down-to-earth women – even in high-end golf equipment which have a tendency to draw these “blogger girls”. The factor is, you in all probability pay extra consideration to these cocky bitchy women than these scorching cool women, as a result of these cocky and narcissistic women are typically consideration whores, and subsequently all the time take the highlight.
So don’t mistake these cocky and narcissistic women with women who simply have excessive vanity and pure confidence. You’ll discover the previous often endure from low vanity.
Both method, the biases males have in the direction of lovely ladies additionally work within the different path.
And each time I’ve been out with handsome guys, I’ve skilled that they both:
Get women who’re loopy about their seems from the get go – fortunate day for them; nevertheless, it doesn’t occur that always
Meet women who give them plenty of crap – I swear. They may name them cocky, even when they don’t seem to be (even for myself, after I labored on my appears, I acquired extra crap from women). In fact, that “crap” is definitely a check and will subsequently be handled like one. It additionally helps to humble down and present extra vulnerability on this case.
Women Act Bizarre Round Scorching Guys
When a man who is just not used to being round scorching ladies interacts with a stunner, he’ll are likely to act bizarre or consider he should play some magical playing cards to get them.
Now, that is usually a horrible technique as a result of it means you’ve gotten already, in your thoughts, put her on a pedestal. Moreover, most women’ conduct isn’t outlined by their seems. Subsequently, these males’s parameters for calibration are off, as a result of they attempt to calibrate (and find yourself mis-calibrating) based mostly on her seems fairly than her conduct. Her conduct (in the direction of you and typically in the direction of others) is all you need to think about when calibrating your recreation.
What tends to occur is that guys act all bizarre round these scorching women as a result of they don’t seem to be calibrated and have put the woman on a pedestal only for being scorching.
An identical factor occurs when a lady meets considered one of these scorching guys. Ladies don’t get so overwhelmed by magnificence like males do. Nevertheless, on account of our society being fixated on seems to be, hooking up with a handsome man is an indication of standing. Therefore, for these causes, ladies are likely to see these males as excessive worth.
And since these ladies decide and calibrate to a man based mostly on his seems to be, they begin appearing bizarre, or unnecessarily onerous to get – throwing in checks left and proper which might be unimaginable to cross – or they go nuts with jealousy plots and all of it turns into a dwelling hell.
Chances are you’ll keep in mind my publish from final month the place I mentioned the distinction between “baseline attraction” and compliance. Particularly, on this case, being good wanting can spark instant attraction and get women into you from the get-go. However as I discussed, they will typically begin to act all bizarre on you.
Now, does this “attraction” generate compliance per se? No. And as I discussed in that earlier submit, attraction CAN get you compliance, however not all the time. Compliance is what’s finally required to get the woman, not attraction.
So yeah, being scorching is a double-edged sword.
Nonetheless satisfied that appears are an important factor on the subject of assembly ladies? In that case, I need to say you’re barely cussed in your perception. Subsequently, I’ll current one final argument which will even shock you.
Scorching Guys Get Rejected for Being Scorching
Ladies are hierarchical creatures. Their standing on the social ladder is massively essential to them. I can’t get into why that’s (in case you are curious learn up on evolutionary biology – the fast reply is that a excessive place in a social group grants her items and safety).
For this reason ladies compete so arduous for likes and hearts on social media. They love having males commenting and liking their footage. They need to talk to the world – and extra importantly, their feminine associates – that they’re fascinating. This grants them factors on the social ladder.
Ladies compete for social standing identical to males in some ways, however the battle takes totally different varieties and the technique of expressing social standing are totally different between the sexes.
Keep in mind what I stated about attractiveness imparting excessive standing? By hooking up with a scorching man, she will get some standing factors. Now, that is exactly why I discussed in my earlier publish that each man ought to AT LEAST attain a minimal threshold on the subject of seems so the lady you need to be concerned with doesn’t lose standing factors by hooking up with you (if she feels she MAY lose factors, she won’t hook up with you, resulting from her risk-averse nature).
Remember that attractiveness are usually not the one determinant of excessive worth and standing – nevertheless, dangerous seems, garments, and grooming are game-killers.
Hooking up with a scorching man might in some instances grant her some standing factors, however not as a lot as you’d factor, since ladies by default, even on this extra sexually liberated period, will lose factors for hooking up with (too many) guys. So usually, ladies will not often hook up with a man solely based mostly on appears. If she does, it’s both as a result of he’s completely her sort or she is extra sexually liberated… or simply ovulating. This proves that different elements than seems to be are extra key to figuring out success – resembling dealing with her resistance and her fears of social retribution relating to intercourse.
However allow us to take this entire argument one step additional. Contemplate once more that hooking up with a scorching man doesn’t grant her standing factors (often at greatest, hooking up with good wanting guys solely makes her lose LESS standing factors). And one factor is certain – NOT hooking up with scorching guys will certainly grant her factors.
Sure, if she has scorching guys hitting on her, and she or he is rejecting them, she is going to by default grant herself probably the most standing factors. If she isn’t sexy or the man just isn’t clean and good at eliciting highly effective feelings and setting key frames, her essential precedence won’t be hooking up (consideration whoring and social standing whoring are intently associated).
Additionally, if rejecting a scorching man who’s hitting on her will grant her probably the most factors, she’ll reject him. OUCH!!! (Betcha didn’t see that one coming.)
Rackin’ up the factors…
There are a number of elements at play right here:
Scorching guys will hit on her, which can show to her pals that scorching guys do pursue her
By not having intercourse with them, she commits actually no reputational dangers
By the mere undeniable fact that she is rejecting a scorching man, she routinely conveys she is extra engaging and better standing than him
Principally, this technique is pure social standing maximization for her. And scorching guys are only a means to an finish.
We have now one other issue to think about, too – specifically that low vanity women (who could be scorching) will reject scorching guys to really feel higher about themselves.
Looks matter, however seems usually are not all the time key to getting compliance.
Compliance is what it’s all about.
Good appears are a double-edged sword. Positive, many would declare that the positives make up for the negatives. I’m not positive about that, however I perceive why so many males consider so, as guys usually decide a person’s expertise and success with ladies based mostly on the primary minutes of interactions – principally they decide that a man is profitable if he will get to speak to women and has women flirting with him.
The tendency is that scorching guys have a neater time with the primary steps of a seduction – first impressions, flirting, and so forth. But, you don’t get to see the difficulties they face (people who I’ve talked about right here). And these adverse features come into play later of their interactions.
There’s additionally a pattern bias right here, specifically that it’s straightforward to identify the recent guys who speak to and flirt with women greater than those that don’t. As talked about, scorching guys have it simpler opening and getting mutual flirtations from women. However as we noticed on this submit, additionally they get extra crap (and typically the harshest rejections).
Moreover, as one good points expertise with ladies, one shortly figures out that flirting and making a woman flirt again means jack if different extra essential features are usually not dealt with properly, similar to logistics, escalation, body management, and so forth.
General, for my part, hotness is just not a scary trait to me on the subject of male competitors.
Finally, my level is that I typically see scorching guys flirt with women simply to go house alone and jack off, whereas some less-hot man will get to hump her as a result of he’s acquired the extra essential elements of recreation dealt with.
As all the time, questions and feedback are welcome!
