  1. Solid links. I think tall, good-looking guys actually benefit from ONLY showing up and not screwing up — if you are tall, good-looking, and have a type A personality, most women actually find it very intimidating. You need to either act mild-mannered or assert status by validating the people you interact with. Friendly strength game. Mystery invented this with his gay dad persona.

  2. Y’all are welcome for the links. Glad you like them.

    Arred: Interesting. I’ve been told I should tone down my harshness and that I’m occasionally intimidating. In fact, I have a post related to that going up in a couple days.

    RT: Thanks for the list, looks interesting.

  3. Definitely. One of the things I’ve found is that as a man, you tend to look at all opinions equally and assess their credibility by scrutinizing the content. If something is fucking wrong, you call it out regardless of who says it. A woman determines credibility mostly by sizing up the source. Sucks for betas, great for us. If you are tall, handsome, intelligent, high status, well-known, etc, she will take your opinions very seriously. Which means if you’re dealing with a woman who perceives herself as in any way lower status than you, you MUST validate her with your attention and affection, or she will shut you out in a heartbeat. Obviously this does not apply to a woman of higher status.

    Love the lightning rounds, by the way. I’m going to add you to my blogroll — take a look and link me out sometime if you like anything.
