For the American Football fans, what are your thoughts on the new and improved XFL?

I didn't know about it until I turned on the TV yesterday and it happened to be their opening weekend. I've watched some of the games this weekend and I like how they are taking out what sucks about the NFL like touchbacks, too many stops, etc. They also wrote no kneeling or political nonsense into every player's contract. 

I think Vince McMahon is trying to cash in on the NFL's declining ratings.

  How to be Yourself & Stop Caring What Girls Think
Posted by: finchfry157 - 02-08-2020, 11:49 PM - Forum: Game Forum - Replies (16)

The idea for this article came from a YouTube comment. It reminded me that a lot of guys struggle with this, just like I did for a long time..

I wasn’t always successful with women. For the majority of my life I was actually pretty clueless. I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 19. And even then it happened only with the help of massive amounts of alcohol and low standards. I still struggled for a few years after that. It wasn't until I was 22 that I got my real girlfriend.

Why did I struggle so much?

There’s lots of reasons of course. A simple lack of knowledge and understanding of female psychology was definitely a big part of it. But, another big component was that I was afraid too be myself put myself out there. I cared what people (men and women) thought of me, much more than what is healthy… and as a result, always felt stifled

Aside from not getting laid. I also wasn’t as fun to be around back then. I wasn’t as good of a friend. I wasn’t as genuine. I simply wasn’t my real self. I was just too afraid to put myself out there and be my full self. Alcohol definitely helped and my first dozen lays happened when I was drunk, because that was the only time I could “not give a shit”

So what finally changed?

There was no big “aha” moment. It was a series of small improvements over time. Mostly, slow and boring. There were some catalysts though, I met a friend in college who was completely unfiltered. He said and did whatever the fuck he wanted. He truly didn’t give a shit what anyone thought. And as you expect, he got WAY more pussy than me and had a lot more friends.

Going out with him I saw first hand time and time again the power of not giving a shit. We went out every weekend and so my subconscious kept getting bombarded with evidence. Over and over

I also slowly came to the realization that the vast majority of people are not nearly as cool as they seem. It’s easy to think that the popular kids in your high school are a different species when you’re growing up. But, then 10 years later when you see them fat and working at Walmart you realize that they might not be as cool as you made them out to be in your mind

I slowly shifted from thinking

“I’m such a loser and most people are way cooler than me”

To

“I’m pretty fucking awesome and most people are actually kinda lame”

And when that happened, it became a lot easier to not give a shit. After all why would you care what a bunch of losers think? This may sound a bit bad. But, you understand what I’m getting at

6 TIPS FOR LEARNING TO BE YOURSELF & NOT GIVE A SHIT

I’m not going to get into any woo-woo stuff. That is not to say, I dismiss it. Far from it. Some of it can be extremely helpful. But, it’s not my forte and I like to keep things practical

1. Bombard your subconscious with positive reference experiences - I fully believe that I’m a solid dude and that what other people think about me (aside from close friends and family) is 100% irrelevant. And you probably agree with me on a logical level. Unfortunately, that is not enough. You have to truly believe it on a subconscious level. That won’t happen overnight. You have to work on consciously seeking out “proof”. That is going to involve being self aware, putting yourself out there and taking “risks”. You’re going to have to fight your internal desire to “play it safe”.

Next time you see a hot girl, go up to her and say that you find her attractive and want to meet her. No pickup line. No shtick. Just put yourself out there. There was a challenge I did a long time ago that helped. It was called demonic confidence. For 21 days you had to approach women and progressively be more ballsy. Day 1 was just asking for the time. And by day 15 you were saying “hi, will you have sex with me”

Next time you are on a date and are nervous to go for the kiss or say what’s on your mind, you’re going to fight the urge and do it anyway. It may literally feel like death at first, but you are going to trust in the fact that it will get A LOT easier

Next time, you are in a situation where you want to say or do something, you’re going to do it. (Common sense applies). You’re going to stand up for yourself. And you’re going to stop bottling up your feelings and running away from confrontation

2. Progressively conquer your fears - This very much ties into the first one, but is so important that I wanted to mention it. Think about it, why are you not fully being yourself? You know how to do it. I bet when you were a little kid, you were 100% authentic. The reason is fear. For one reason or another you are afraid of putting yourself fully out there. And you are afraid of what people will think

However, the good thing about fears is that when you face them they lose their power. And after a while almost become funny. Let’s take fear of escalation. I used to be deathly afraid of “making a move”. I’m a nice person and didn’t want to freak girls out. I was afraid of what they would think and all the negative scenarios I conjured up in my mind.

I remember one day I saw an old RSD Julien video (before he became a fake hippy) where he talked about whipping your dick out when escalating if you’re pulling a lot of girls that you’re not closing. That was me at the time and the video really resonated. But, I was so fucking afraid to do it. I remember the first time I did it was with a big titty Japanese girl I pulled from H&M... whipping it out felt like I was jumping off a cliff... But then, she got turned on

Then, i did it again and the world didn’t end. And again. And again. And eventually, I realized that it’s not a big deal. Funny enough, after a few months of doing this I realized that I was a lot less afraid to go for the kiss and also closing a noticeably higher percentage of girls

The lesson here is you have to face your fears (whatever they are). Unfortunately, there is no other way. At the time, It may feel like the worst thing ever. But, trust in the fact that it will make you a more successful & fulfilled person. And one day you will notice that the things that used to scare you, no longer do. You will actually laugh about them because they no longer have any power over you

3. Become more jacked & rich - It’s a lot easier to not give a shit if you feel like the biggest guy in the room. And haven’t worried about money in a long time. This of course, is not going to happen overnight. It’ll likely take years. But everyday focus on improving your body and your finances just a little bit. After a while, you will start to notice a difference. People will also start to treat you differently. Dudes might ask you for advice on business or lifting. Girls will start checking you out and being more receptive when you talk to them. This positive feedback loop will further help reprogram your subconscious.

4. Read biographies about successful people - This will also begin to shift your subconscious. One of my favorite books of all time is Total Recall by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here is a story of a man who grew up in a poor family and rose to accomplish more than most of us even think Is possible. And he did it all through hard work and believing in himself. Other great ones are: losing my virginity by Richard Branson, Steve Jobs by Isaacson and Elon Musk by Ashley Vance

5. Hang out with other people who don’t give a shit and fully express themselves- Observe, how much better girls respond to them. And just how magnetic that kind of vibe is. If it wasn’t for that friend I mentioned earlier, I might have never gotten to the point where I am now.

There is a famous saying that “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. I think it’s definitely true on some level. And you can take advantage of it, by surrounding yourself with the kind of people you want to become.

6. Develop a purpose outside of just getting laid - Ironically, to maximize your ability to get girls, getting laid can’t be your main purpose. This is because if you’re too focused on picking up girls, then you will naturally have a harder time not caring what the chick thinks. And as a result be less attractive.

You need a purpose, that doesn’t involve getting laid. Something to center you. To drive you when things aren’t going well. To help you easily brush aside flakes or bad dates. This purpose should be something that drives you personally. For me, it’s PWF. Believe it or not, I have days where I get annoyed. Moments where I just want to say fuck it. And in those times, having that purpose can make a big difference

(Let the bitching begin)

  Do opposites attract if your goal is to get ONS with dimes?
Posted by: Here Are Words - 02-08-2020, 07:05 PM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (12)

I used to peek over at RVF back in its heyday and the common theme with traveling was that if you are a really white looking dude, go to Asia, South Americal, or a more tanned European country. If you are not white or even a white guy that is darker looking, don't go to the same places but instead go to Scandinavia or very pale European countries. 

Even looking around in a major city, I do notice it is not that common for me to see a hot blonde girl with a blond-haired guy and plenty of dime pieces who have that slightly exotic look to them (Irina Shayk comes to mind per se) go for blond and Nordic-looking men.

Even with white women that look good, I do see a lot of blondes and gingers in interracial relationships compared to more of an Olivia Culpo looking chick going for a minority. One of my friends is a Latino guy, closest celeb lookalike is Aaron Hernandez, who seems to get a good reception from blonde girls, black girls, and just about any race that isn't "ethnic". What he tells me is that blondes and redheads are a lot nicer to him from the get-go while dark-haired girls shit-test more and tend to not give it up as easily. My friend does not have any luck with good looking Latinas even though he has looks working in is favor.

But I am wondering if this is all confirmation bias on my end.

I think, yes, it does.

  In your 20s? Check out these 10 Key Lifestyle
Posted by: Whiteleg - 02-07-2020, 02:26 PM - Forum: Lifestyle Forum - Replies (1)

1 Always be learning
        Whether it’s learning how to cook, learning how to play a new sport, or a developing a new career skill, in your 20s you should always be learning new things. Get the best education you can afford, and don’t worry if you don’t have a clue about what you want to be. Just start by building a good foundation that you can take with you wherever you go. But don’t just focus on formal education. Carve out some time to develop your awareness about what’s going on in the world and what kind of mark you want to have on it.
  
2 Stick to a routine
        The most successful people in the world have a routine, and it’s no secret as to why. The sum total of what we do each day is what makes us successful or unsuccessful. No, you don’t have to scribble in brushing your teeth in the morning in your day planner but you should include set times for getting the most important things done each day. If you tend to procrastinate this tip is especially for you.
 
3  Hang around people who have it together
        Most often, we become the people we hang around. If we want to be successful, we have to have people in our lives who are the example. Whatever it is you want to become in life, have a mentor that can help teach you things or simply to motivate you along the way.
   
4  Cultivate relationships
        It’s easy to be so busy and caught up in the daily grind that you forget to take time for friends and family. No matter how busy you are, make it a point to go to family dinners and functions, keep in touch with old friends, and make time for getting to know new ones better. Life is lonely without relationships.
  
5  Respect yourself
        Respecting yourself can mean a lot of things. It can mean not caring too much about what others think, not spending time with people who are bad for us, always being true to yourself, or not getting involved in unnecessary fights. All of these things are a part of respecting yourself and holding yourself to a high standard.
 
6  Put yourself out there
        No one wants to get hurt in relationships but the truth is, when you play the game you take a blow from time to time. It’s easier said than done but try to cast aside your fear when it comes to taking a chance with the opposite sex. You never know when you’ll meet the perfect person for you.
 
7  Be adventurous
        Exploring the world around you builds character and memories. And, you don’t necessarily have to spend lots of money on a trip to have an adventure. Consider backpacking through the mountains, camping out at a National Park, or volunteering in a foreign country.  
 
8  Be smart financially
        Being smart financially is very important at any age but especially in your 20s. During this time most people are starting to build credit, which means credit cards can be a downfall. Use them for emergencies but resist the temptation to overspend. Also, make it a point to save money wherever possible, like cooking at home, making a budget, or paying your student loans on time to avoid interest.
 
9  Go easy on yourself
        In your 20s you’re bound to make mistakes or feel like you aren’t moving up in the world as fast as you would like. This doesn’t mean you’re a failure or that things won’t be easier in the future. Just don’t be so hard on yourself. Give yourself some room for imperfection and time to relax instead of pushing yourself too hard.
 
10   Put your best foot forward
        When you look your best you feel your best, so always put your best foot forward. How you present yourself through your clothing and appearance affects how people perceive and treat you. Not only will you be more respected at work or at school, the ladies will take you more seriously if you take a little time out of your day to be more polished.

  TV Show Thread
Posted by: Suits - 02-07-2020, 03:58 AM - Forum: Everything Else - Replies (48)

During 2019, I made a special point of reducing my intake of video-based media and replaced it with more reading (and other healthy activities) and for the first 21 days of 2020, I took it up another notch by not watching anything at all. I could see myself restricting video-media watching to just a couple days a week, like my family did growing up. However, being semi-quarantined right now due to the threat of the Wuhan Coronavirus, I've been watching a lot more movies, YouTube and TV shows than I normally allow myself. And given how I've minimized my consumption for over a year now, I have a number of good shows to catch up on.

Bojack Horseman

Right now I'm watching the second half of Season 6. I love how Diane is on anti-depressants, overweight and dealing with a career that has totally not been worth it. Very honest show. In past seasons, we've gotten to watch Princess Caroline try to rearrange her life to give herself a feeling of relative accomplishment as she comes to terms with decades dedicated 100% to her career. And lest you think the show is only tough on the female characters, we've also watched as Bojack slowly and painfully makes small steps towards meaning and healthy relationships.

This show has never been about happy endings. From the very beginning, Bojack's life has been contrasted with the fictional show Horsin' Around which like most 30 minute sitcoms, always offered a happy ending. But despite the very slow and incomplete progress Bojack has made in his own life over six seasons, it's enjoyable to watch due to the show's excellent grasp of complex humour and the fact that maybe, there's a little Bojack inside of all of us.

Chernobyl

A YouTube show I watched the other day that commented on the Coronavirus situation mentioned the parallels between the handling of this crisis and the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown. I'm just two episodes in, but this show has met rave reviews and so far I'm very impressed by it.

What good shows have you seen recently?

  Rolex vs. Apple Watch?
Posted by: PlanC - 02-06-2020, 06:12 PM - Forum: Lifestyle Forum - Replies (17)

I’m curious on the latest opinions on what type of watch you guys wear. I have a moderately expensive watch that I tend to wear out to weddings and special events. Besides those one-off events, I tend to wear a comfortable smart watch. I saw an article on CNBC today that Apple watch sales are greater than Swiss luxury brands.
 
Not that the watch will improve your game, but when walking into a place dressed nicely, what’s the view on dress watch vs. apple watch? I’m recently divorced, 43 and looking to pick up younger women (late 20s/early 30s).
 
I tried searching the forums here and didn’t find anything specific to my Q.
