Have your ever thought that maybe as alpha young'uns we learned that certain non-alpha-type actions got us what we wanted. Sometimes we were able to actually get pussy by being 'confidants' for women first. Or we were able to mack women by playing the shy/weird artist type dood. Those techniques, while highly effective in the early to mid-nineties, just don't work as well any more. The first explanation for this has to do with age/maturity. Those beta techniques don't work with experienced women who've been through insufficiently alpha males. Secondly, geographical location plays a part in this too. I live in a city where an abnormally large part of the male population is beta (or even below beta). Bottom line, straight, pursuing women just desire more dominant alpha males more. Anways, I believe since some of us learned wrong early on it's affected how we act now. We must unlearn.
