A warning to the faux alphas trying to fake it until they make it from NN Taleb's forthcoming book.
It doesn't do any harm to try to be something you are not in the interest of self-improvement when you're dealing with women. Just be sure not to believe your own bullshit or try to BS other men. They will see through you, nine times out of ten.
Don’t marry a feminist, son, because she has an ax to grind, and someday you’ll become her target. Don’t marry a feminist because she’s unable to give for the sake of giving. Feminists always tally up a score. Don’t marry a feminist because family will not come first. Her career will. Don’t marry a feminist because equality, not marriage, is her ultimate goal. And for marriage to work, the focus and commitment has to be marriage. Don’t marry a feminist because if you get divorced, which you likely will since competitive ... Alpha Game

Given the incredible number of women now on anti-depressants and other mind-altering drugs, it might be informative to learn what percentage of women in the work force are on them compared to women who are not in the work force.
Based in simple observation, it seems pretty clear that women who are wives and mothers occupied with home-making are considerably less mentally ill than single working women from similar backgrounds.
CEOs need to stop talking to recruiters about their employment philosophies:
This really happened: While reviewing some calibration profiles for an Executive search with the founder and CEO of a company, he tells me that he doesn't think it's a good idea to go after women I've selected because they might want to have children. I was pretty much shell-shocked. Having three daughters, I had to check him on these biases. But it made me wonder how often this might actually happen when selecting talent. And how many opportunities have been lost for women as a result of this ... Alpha Game

A private friendzoning is a punch to the nuts, but a public friendzoning….well that’s just a drawing and quartering of a man’s soul. Unnecessary cruelty. A day-spa visit to the Chateau imbibing the lessons herein could’ve saved this man such a public humiliation. Not to mention spared him the time and energy he’s obviously wasted chasing a phantom pussy.

If one in five college women are raped, they must all be either attending or visiting the 11 percent of campuses where rapes actually occur.
Most U.S. colleges — 89% — reported zero incidents of rape in 2015, according to American Association of University Women (AAUW) analysis of data provided by schools to the U.S. Department of Education.
Acknowledging that she once considered conceiving a child to be the greatest threat to her future, local woman Rebecca Davis confirmed Wednesday that she has transitioned from being terrified of getting pregnant to being terrified she can’t get pregnant. “I’m just really scared that it may never happen at this point,” said the 34-year-old woman who has closed the chapter of her adult life when the sight of a negative pregnancy test brought on a wave of pure relief and is now consumed by anxiety that she may never see a blue plus sign. “All ...

Some 42% of adults say knowing someone’s credit score would affect their willingness to date that person, according to a survey released on Wednesday of 1,000 adults by personal finance website Bankrate.com. That’s up from nearly 40% last year. Women were nearly three times as likely to consider credit score a major influence on a potential partner compared to men (20% versus 7%).

When your wedding picture looks like this, you should probably just keep a family attorney ready on speed dial.
Uncomfortable bride, check
Goony-faced groom, check
He's grabbing onto her, check
She's trying to pry his hands off her, check
I wonder if wedding photographers should be given the power to prevent a wedding. There is no way the man who took this picture didn't think to himself at some point, yeah, these two are totally going to go the distance.
Up to 23,000 current prisoners are expected to be released from the Massachusetts State Prison system because the female lab chemist handling evidence in their cases lied, forged colleague’s signatures, and purposefully contaminated evidence.

A Champlin Park High School student, who was accepted into multiple Ivy League universities, tweeted a prom photo with her date — her Harvard University admissions letter — which came with the arm candy of a full scholarship. The post went viral. In the photo, Priscilla Samey, has her eyes closed and lips pursed as if to kiss that crimson page she holds in her hands that reads #Harvard2021. Her tweet on April 29 read, “Couldn’t find a man to accept me for prom so I took a college that did.” You'll be shocked to learn that she was ... Alpha Game

For all their preaching about the need for diversity, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg can't be bothered to actually, you know, hire women.
Like other major tech companies, including Google parent Alphabet Inc. and Apple Inc., Facebook has struggled to increase the share of women and underrepresented minorities in its ranks. The absence of women is particularly felt in engineering, which from college classrooms to the workplace has been seen as a man’s field. Women account for 17% of technical roles at Facebook, according to its latest diversity report.

Now, there is certainly nothing wrong with a woman who keeps herself in shape making a career as a fitness model and lifestyle guru. But it's a bit of a fall from grace from someone who was supposedly going to beat all the boys on the racetrack.

Another post-Wall woman learns the hard way that the nature of the game changes with age:
To Claire, it sounded like a different world; a sweet shop filled with thrills and excitement, all available at her fingertips. Just the pick-me-up she needed.
Sadly, six months later, Claire would do anything to be back in the marital home, listening for the sound of her husband’s key in the door. For she, like countless other middle-aged divorcees, has found the world of internet dating — of which Tinder leads the field — to be a tawdry, loveless, moral abyss.
Harvey Mudd went out of its way to bring in considerably more female and diversity students. Guess what happened?
Harvey Mudd eight years ago revised its core curriculum, cutting it back from four semesters of courses to three and allowing for more elective classes. It was a measure that faculty and administrators believed would reduce student workload and stresses, and they were frustrated to learn it was not successful after many months of planning, Klawe said.
Some faculty members, meanwhile, told the interviewers that students were not prepared for their classes, and that they’d observed deterioration in the ... Alpha Game
