Vitamin A overload in carrots will make your hair fall out. Not even kidding.
rationis said:Wow, I must say this is seriously one of the weirdest online forums I've ever stumbled across. I couldn't tell if you guys were for real or not at first. And I thought those bodybuilding forums and those low IQ "brahs" on there were bad. Though I wonder how many people are on here in a sort of ironic way.
I mean is this guy seriously advocating like 30 different surgeries for various minor perceived "flaws" in a guy's physiognomy? Yet you act like that's a masculine thing to do...?
You guys seem to have this term, "red pill" (I'm assuming a reference from the Matrix meaning the pill you take to see "reality" as it really is) that seems like a catch-all to both justify and represent all your misguided ideas. Whatever someone tells you, you complacently fall back on that idea that people who challenge you on this don't know what reality is really like, and you do, because you took the pill, so to speak. You got it all figured out. If you failed with women, you automatically blame solely your physical looks for it? Sigh... you people need to realize that looks are actually really not that important overall. I've learned that the hard way from my own experience.
Not that I use the scale much, but I'd probably be somewhere around a 7, maybe 7.5 on a good day. Being able to read body language well, I've always noticed women (80%+) respond favorably to my appearance and are attracted initially, but until my early to mid 20s, I was absolutely horrible with them, despite that. Personality and game are way more important than purely looks. I used to be nerdy and very socially awkward back in high school, partly due to moving every year or so and styling myself poorly at the time, and had zero game. Even though in college and later, attractive women would come up to me in bars and various other situations to talk, I would drop the ball and they'd leave with a disappointed look on their face a few minutes later; I got some drunk one night stands and hookups but when it came to actual serious relationships, I didn't make the cut despite their high initial interest. It took me a while to get my shit straight. A car can have a nice exterior but be basically non-functional on the inside. Now I'm actually doing pretty good, but it took a while. And all that time when I was younger I had friends who were average at best, and in some cases outright physically unattractive who used to consistently score more women than me, and sometimes pretty hot ones. And it wasn't money either in most of those cases; that's also something people focus on too much as an excuse. I'm talking about when just trying to pull a girl at a club or party, being rich doesn't matter all that much... maybe for a relationship with certain kinds of women, yeah. Many of my friends would always wonder why I wasn't more successful, because they focused only on superficial aspects.
Also, I bet less than 5% of the people on this thread who responded so enthusiastically are ever going to actually consider or go through with one of these surgical procedures. I guess they really just come here to this odd corner of the Internet for some twisted sense of community with people who can commiserate with them and share their wrongheaded ideas, further reinforcing them. And I love the way he just says this stuff so casually as if anyone can just on a whim decide to get their entire face altered, as if they had the money, time, and wanted to take the risk. Nose slightly too long? no problem, get it cut down. Ears stick out like an elf? just a quick session under the knife will make you right. Not enough dimples? we can fix that too!
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with wanting to improve oneself, and if you've got the money and really think you need it and can accept the risks.. then by all means go ahead. But this is getting it into peoples heads that they all have something they need and should get fixed lol. I'm just saying to consider other options. If you're a genuinely cool dude and can convey that to women, just give it a shot.. you might be surprised.
Also, think about this: if people alter their natural appearance to look much better than they really are, isn't that a little deceiving for a prospective mate? You'd still be passing down and perpetuating your naturally unattractive genes to your kids, and your spouse may get quite a shock when she sees what they look like. Same goes for women who do this. I shudder at seeing how stark a difference there is in the before and after with some Asian women that got radical surgery, and feel a little bad for their unwitting husbands haha. But then again, soon enough people are going to be able to start custom-designing their babies with genetic modification, so who knows what the future has in store.
I will say, however... one thing he was sort of right about was the importance of hair. It really can make a pretty big difference. Having hair that is on point is essential; I've seen bad hair days ruin a guy's chance if the rest of their game wasn't up to par. It really can drop a person 2 or 3 whole points, if I may indulge in the use of this superficial scale.
And I'm sure everyone will respond with something like you must be jealous or look like a bitch or something, or some other simplistic retort. It doesn't matter, since I'm done here. Yes, I know this sounds like trolling but I actually wanted to help people and throw in my two cents. Peace.
