I would have figured that it works for you because they won't care if you're a jerk since they think you're hot.

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
This thread is crazy. There is no real 'disadvantage' in looking good. It will probably make you lazier if anything since you don't need much game to land a reptile.

Is there a disadvantage for a lizard who looks like a 9? Yea, she gets hit on regularly by alpha cats, gets things bought for her by beta cats such as all expense paid shopping trips and travel. Is that a bad thing?

Disadvantage in looking good, not much challenge in getting the notch.

Boohoo, cry me a river lol.

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
I'm with Moma on this one. I have a cousin like this. All he has to do is show up and girls game him. They ask to take pics for their facebook in a group next to him etc..etc. His game is to sit down and wait for some girl to walk over and ask if he wants to meet her friend or come sit near them. Buy his drinks, Drive him around, offer up threesomes blah blah. He doesn't even care. He wears simpsons fleece pajama pants with dress shoes and never does laundry and still pulls or the girls pull him.

Some older Scottish cat told me once that when dudes don't have to work for pussy they start to get homo a little and experiment with dudes.
Any truth to that?

Yeah, remember from your Psych 101 class that 90% of professors think they're above average at teaching, just like 90% of drivers think they're above average at driving.

There's everyday, classic "good looking", and then there's male-equivalent Victoria's Secret-esque international model type good looking.

Some examples:

[Image: 48879857.jpg]

[Image: david-gandy.jpg]

They're also around the ideal height: 6'2. I've only known a few guys with looks comparable to the guys shown above, and needless to say, it's a very different world for them. Radically different. Of course, since looks, especially facial aesthetics, are largely out of control, you'll hear tons of guys rationalize by saying that they don't matter.

They do. Let's be realists here. Oh, and good looking people, guys and girls alike, are also smarter than average according to scientific studies. They think it's because the most beautiful women were only seduced by the most alpha men at the top of the status hierarchy, and getting to the top requires at least some degree of smarts.

This goes against the usual stereotypes, but jealousy explains those pretty simply. The fat girl needs to put down Adriana Lima and Angelina Jolie as being vapid, dumb sluts, because having some claim to intellectual superiority is her only way of coping.

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
how do you comment on this thread without appearing like an ass? you can't. this thread is stupid. no disadvantages, tons of annoyances.

p.s. - haven't fucked a guy, but that doesn't stop the fags from aggressively flirting even when there's clear disinterest on my end.

p.p.s. - good-looking guys prefer to go for hot chicks (8+), and when that happens, all the stuff that's written here goes out the mother fucking door. The guy above can pull 9's/10's, but to suggest that they're gonna line up to suck his dick is fairly ridiculous. So no, boredom never sets in if you're going for people in your league, so to speak.

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
Man, this thread has been great reading. So much of it resonates with me, and I realize that much of my dry spell here in Oki can be attributed to MASSIVE overgaming. An alpha co-worker of mine keeps saying "Just sit at Starbucks Sir, and order a latte. You don't need to speak Japanese. The girls will come to you." but I'm just too buried inside my own head to realize that would work.

-I keep thinking I need to be running game to get girls. If I don't combine Cocky & Funny with Negs, they aren't going to put out, right? Wrong.
-I've internalized the Marine Corps' insistence on action over inaction. You must always be actively, relentlessly, pursuing your objective. Not doing *SOMETHING* is considered poor leadership.
-I'm naturally a bit of a motor-mouth (it's genetic, my half-brother, father, and father's mother are all motor-mouths). I spend a lot of time alone reading, so when I get around people I tend to "brain dump" all that new knowledge.
-I don't drink anymore and I consider few in my social circle to be interesting people so nightlife actually REALLY bores me unless I'm approaching/gaming girls.
-My Inner Game is pretty bad, largely because I DESPISE what I do and how my days pan out schedule-wise, so I try to compensate with even more Outer Game.

This all combines for a perfect storm of overgaming and essentially cock-blocking myself. I always wondered how I managed to get laid in my beta days. Most of my lays were just me being highly visible and drinking/dancing/having a nice time. Then some cute, horny, sexually aggressive chick comes along and wants to buy what I'm not even really selling. I didn't know how to talk to girls so I didn't have much to say....which actually played in my favor. I need to figure out how to get back to being that quiet smiling guy....without having a beer in my hand.

Sounds like a Zoolander thread

Well I think it's harder for good looking people to make male friends, than their less handsome counterparts.

Also if for example you and a less handsome friend are with two girls, it's usual he will get jealous if you are getting too much attention and try and undermine you efforts. This is usually by disagreeing with everything you say, or agreeing with the girls comments when you disagree. Trying to make fun of you etc

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
I have observed this the past month, and always had inclinations.

I use to be a complete beta male and entertained thoughts that were so dangerous, years ago. I made the conscious decision to improve myself, and have learned to project confidence and generate that indifferent, asshole vibe. However, I have only realized now that girls have been throwing themselves at me, and my habits, for whatever reason, incline me to not pursue them and just 'chill'.

The meta-cognition that has been going on the past 2-3 years has evolved, but the result is still the same: I experience apathy, or don't overcome it. I think I definitely have internal blocks that I place too high a premium on and generally think too much. When I'm high, which rarely is the case, I get soooooooooo paranoid and self-conscious. This is the same for when I'm about to go out at night.

I don't know what to do, I could probably just try being friendly at this point, because I forget how much I've changed externally (and internally), that it's taking some time for me to catch up and realize so.

What do?

My cousin is a model here in Argentina and he gets tons and tons of girls. The other day he got asked to do a bachelorette party where he and his friend had to entertain the 10 girlfriends. He ended up fucking the hot bride to be. And got paid a grand to do it. Amazing.

Its not a disadvantage, so much as its a different approach. The issue arises when the model guy ACTS like an average guy, throws people off because women are going to make assumptions about his character before he ever speaks.

Imagine you're dealing with two guys, one is wearing a suit, one is wearing a trashbag like a poncho, if they both walked up and said "hi, how are you" and stuck out there hand for a handshake, would you treat them both the same?

I agree its nothing to be complained about, but it is a valid point that dealing with women is a different ball game depending on a lot of factors, looks only being one of them.

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
Sometimes I feel like this question is like "What are the disadvantages from having too much game?" haha, this is coming from a slightly above average looking guy though, and I see all the good looking guys get girls so its hard for me to identify with your problem

I'm of this opinion. If you're a man and VERY good looking like lets above an 9.0, women will seldom approach you because you're too good looking and they are intimidated. If you are however cute which is like above a 8 women will offer their pussies on a platter for you.

Just like how few guys would approach a set of 3 hot girls

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
Damn this is one hell of a thread.

I have been told by a few girls that I am gorgeous. I've been told by a few girls that I look like an Abercrombie model and I should be in Hollywood. A few girls have said that I'm "so fucking hot". Other girls have said "God you're so fucking cute". And then other girls have not thought or said any of these things and probably didn't think I was attractive. I would rate myself as a 7.5 or 8, and I just don't see how some of these girls think I'm as attractive as they do, but I guess it boils down to different preferences. It could be my look as well, as I have a baby face, and I feel like girls either think I'm super hot or average.

I just discovered this blog about a month ago so almost every time I've gotten laid, it's been because a girl approached me, I found out she liked me through a friend, ect. I was little bitch with girls in high school; I was a fairly popular athlete and I kind of knew that girls liked me but I was too much of a pussy to do anything about it, so I didn't get laid until I was 19 and in college.

I had never heard of this FAG game until this thread, but it makes a lot of sense. I think my new plan now is to approach girls and if they seem instantly attracted to me, I'll roll with FAG game. If not, I'll proceed with with cocky/funny. Do you guys have any tips/experiences that make it easier to tell if she instantly digs your look?

This thread is awesome and I've never thought about my looks this way, but I think this is going to be a huge help.

The first time I got laid, I was living in the dorms and one drunken Friday night I ended up in a neighbor's room with like 6 other people. My neighbor (7.5 or so) told me she never approached me because she assumed I had a girlfriend. Well she was all over me after I told her I didn't and I banged her in my roommate's bed an hour later.

u talking weed? shit makes some people paranoid and alienated. If you're using terms like "meta-cognition" in relation to your emotional/sex life, I think this is a sign of excessive intellectualization, you probably have avoidant features and have to deal with shyness. Not a macho thing to admit in the land of Cowboys, but telling people to fuck off about their opinions on our limitations is the first step towards overcoming them.

I personally don't think so , he doesn't have the outstanding bone structure of Latin Lover Dude above.

If he has over, say, 10-20 million dollars that ALMOST makes up for it, but in Murka bitches have such easy asscess to money they almost take it for granted.

As in:
" OF COURSE you're going to give me all your money Beta Bitch Boy, you ALSO have to look like a STUD. You feeling me, wimpy ass mofo? That's right, give me a foot massage. You make me feel so good I'd almost fuck you, but Romando is in the next room. Have my SUV detailed when I'm done with him."

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
The thing, is, it can depend how photogenic you are and what angles you use. I seen girls on dating sites where in one pick I think WOW she is like an 8.5 then you see the other 5 pics and it goes to below 5.

the silicon valley bachelor guy is not particularly good looking, not even for an asian. Not ugly, but slightly above average nerdy asian looking. I'm not highly photogenic and have been told so, but I know in real life women find me attractive and while I'm not drowning in vagina, if I take any given class where women outnumber men, I could find myself with several gfs fb options and I rarely get turned down by women when I do make the approach.

Actually one of the most beautiful girls I dated was about a 5'4 brunette with brown hair and green eyes, and nice skin and cute face and good booty.

Yes a downside of being good looking is women assume that you are so deep in vagina many good ones are shy of you or never approach you.

I would rather not be Asian at all. I actually agree though, no other girl from different races likes Asian guys really that much from what I've seen no matter how tall he is. Why would they when 80% of hot girls usually have the best guys of their own race or other races that are far superior looking then them?

RE: Disadvantages for good looking guys
There is no disadvantage ....while you're in your prime.

But,if you haven't achieved anything with your life or landed your special chick by the time your looks start to fade then you might be at a disadvantage ,if you haven't had to develop a personality up till then.

It's a bit like the woman who always turns heads whenever she walks in a room.
And one day she walks in a room and all the heads turn, which makes her feel good ,until she realises they were all checking out the hot 21 year old piece of ass walking in behind her.
That's devastating to women ,if they haven't got anything else to offer...cause that's the main reason they've been so popular and all the doors opened for them since they were 12 years old,and now it's gone never to return.

I suspect it's the same for guys.

Especially if you age badly you'll probably have to reboot your way of thinking about women as you will most likely have lost a lot of confidence.

On the other hand if you age particularly well and you're still trawling then you might still be digging hot 22 year olds.

But as far as looks count it's definitely :

Better to have been a has been rather than a never was!"

At least you got a seat at the Top table for a while.
