Female Dating Strategy is a subreddit which was created in February 2019 as part of the larger arising of pp’d subreddits (such as r/vindicta, r/pinkpilledfeminism, r/trufemcels, etc.)

Female Dating Strategy is a female-only subreddit that was created in the interest of helping women to achieve their goals in dating, whether that be LTR, marriage or just FWB. It is centred entirely around maximising female benefit and minimising costs/risk. More saliently, due to its policy of being aggressively pro-female, FDS promotes a very unforgiving and cutthroat approach to interactions with males. In many respects, it is a response to the presence of the ‘manosphere’ and in particular TRP.

>It has been proven time and time again that asking men for their number, asking them out on dates, initiating texts with them, traveling to meet them instead of them coming to you, and splitting the bill – they don't work if you want a relationship with a man who's crazy about you, provides, and is proud to have you as their girlfriend.

Amen to this. Don't chase men, ladies. If there's one thing in current dating that really peeves me, it's this. Some women think they're being empowering by overperforming when all they're doing is attracting low-effort males who will only see these actions not as a signal of ambition, but of useful idiocy. They get the boost of ego without having to risk rejection because the woman is doing all the legwork. Don't give them this power over yourselves, you're making it too easy for them to use you.

No. 132017

I agree, it's more of a /g/ topic.

No. 132018

If the topic is pinkpilled/GC, putting it on /g/ means some whiny handmaidens will show up to cry about how they love penis or whatever, won't it?

No. 132019

I wonder how well this strategy would work in Scandinavian countries. Where I live it's not as many who think men should pay for dates - especially not more than the first one. It's considered old-fashioned and gold digger-ish. Is it more of a norm in the US?

No. 132020

its literally called Female ""Dating"" Strategy

No. 132021

same with my country, while some of the strategies might apply its clear somethings can't really translate to the culture we have here

No. 132022

This, the strategy is specifically for pinkpilled straight women, since most dating advice given to women is male-centred. Pick-mes would simply derail it.

Its ideology is radfem-adjacent and many of the mods/posters come from r/GC

No. 132023

How can I tell if a man is into me but trying to hide it because it would be inappropriate, due to the fact that we live or work together?

I found out about /fds/ in the reddit cringe thread and after browsing the sub for the last couple of days I don't understand why it got called cringy by several anons.
My relationship of 11 months just ended through mutual ghosting and I don't feel like dating at the moment but I plan to follow some fds advice if I start pursuing relationships again.

No. 132025

"While we believe in having your own career and making your own money, a man still has to add financial value to your life and make you feel like he can take care of you. This means not splitting the bill and not dating financially challenged men."

I’ve been browsing /FDS/ semi-regularly since around November. There are definitely some cringy aspects of the subreddit, namely certain posters and the ‘yas Queen’ twitter bullshit. Most of the ire generated by FDS I think proceeds from the fact that males have a vested interest in keeping women’s standards and self esteem low, so that they can remain competitive. The male sexual imperative involves copulating with as many fertile high value women, for the absolute lowest investment as possible. Since FDS advocates in gatekeeping access to sex until a certain degree of male investment is procured (a measure of self preservation since it’s meant to ensure you don’t get p ‘n’ d), the FDS philosophy is antagonistic towards the fulfilment of that sexual imperative. The very same people (particularly males) who whine about FDS will handwave the existence of TRP, despite it essentially being the male equivalent and just as Machiavellian.

No. 132028

It is nowadays

No. 132029

Agreed. Men are so desperate to convince women that the lowest of standards are unreasonable.
One time I told a group of male acquaintances that I wanted a partner that took care of himself, had common interests with me, showed me respect and didn't expect me to act like his mother and they acted like I had shot all of their pets in front of them.
FDS is just taking men at their word when they say who they are.

No. 132030

>Most of the ire generated by FDS I think proceeds from the fact that males have a vested interest in keeping women’s standards and self esteem low, so that they can remain competitive.
Yeah, FDS is nowhere as vitriolic as its male counterparts like the redpill or mgtow yet it's being branded as being "just as bad" by a lot of people.

No. 132031

What really bothers me about FDS and trufemcels and even the pinkpill sub is that a lot of the users are literally teenage girls who genuinely believe that they're doomed to a life of misery because their crush ignores them. I'm not trying to invalidate them because school was hell for me too but how can you seriously call yourself a femcel at 19 years old? These subs are just so juvenile to me. They're not as violently unhinged as the male counterparts but its just very cringe.

No. 132032

>males have a vested interest in keeping women’s standards and self esteem low

Truth. And patriarchy is an unnatural affair that enables subpar men to spread their genes. The world would look very different if women were not oppressed and discriminated against, had good self-confidence, as we would only pick the most suitable and good men. We can still remember our value and only choose the men that lives up to our standards.

Still wondering how much luck FDS anons have with making men pay for everything though. That seems to be one of the most important rules of that sub.

No. 132033

It's nowhere as prominently exhibited as with the bullshit discourse of "women's romance novels create unrealistic expectations just as porn does for men so it's equally harmful!". Expecting your partner to be attentive, caring and well-behaved is apparently the same as expecting them to be consenting to anal sex, ass to mouth and having gravity-defying large tits with a shaved, bleached innie vagina. Requiring the bare fucking minimum is considered too much for women.

No. 132034

Thats so funny to me because usually the male protagonists in romance novels are straight up rapists or apathetic assholes. The 50 shades boom produces many novels with abusive males leads and almost all classics from like the 70s are also problematic as fuck. Scrotes are sperging about shit they have no clue about as always.

No. 132035

>The world would look very different if women were not oppressed and discriminated against, had good self-confidence, as we would only pick the most suitable and good men
Definitely. The other part of their strategy is to ensure women are DESPERATE to be married and have children before a certain age. Men use scare and shame tactics incessantly against women who dare not to do either or wait until they are older, because a woman who refuses to play the game is a direct threat to male interests. The combination of low standards/self esteem + a time limit for when we are 'good enough' to find a partner ensures scrots get to marry women who are much younger and better looking than them. Then they treat their wives like garbage with no consequences, because men also revile single mothers to give them incentive to stay with shitty men no matter what.

Women have to become comfortable with the idea of being alone if we're ever going to change male behaviour for the better and keep ourselves safe.

No. 132036

This is why I left r/vindicta and the related discord. Several of the members there are very young and have a laundry list of surgeries to get. While they may be average, it really can't be healthy to keep making morphs of yourself with only the tiniest of changes.

No. 132037

I completely disagree with this. I did all of this at the beginning of my relationship with my husband. We've been together for 6 years, and he financially provides for me while I'm in school (including the cost of school).

No. 132038

In what respect did you ‘chase’ him? Because not chasing a man doesn’t mean not initiating conversations, but rather ensuring that you don’t ask him out on dates or actively court a man who clearly lacks interest.

No. 132039

If it's inappropriate and he's trying to hide it, don't chase him, anon. Have dignity and don't shit where you eat.
You all gotta stop talking to online weirdos (I mean we are too, but women aren't degenerates like moids) and talk to some normies with core values who understand that women also want to be attracted to their partner. If you have to date men, find one who plays sports and at least has a nice body and understands teamwork.

No. 132040

>1.Be a high value woman.

Everywhere we go, we are treated like fucking objects. Ffs, stop it. Women don't have a value, we aren't related to the Stock Market in any way. We are human, thanks.

>She has her own career, hobbies, and a great social life that fulfills her emotional needs.

"you have to be the perfect, flawless bussiness woman to start dating correctly"

Yikes. I understand some of the points they are trying to come across but the phrasing is wonky. I know it's trying to tell women to develop themselves without focusing on males, but at the same time it can be read as "be perfect or no quality man will look at you twice".

I'm going to tell you a secret, anons. Don't date. At all. Why suffer through all of this when you can just forget about dating and, as the first rule says, focus on your life?? Men are all the same, if you don't like their general behaviour (male socialization) you won't like any of them. There's no special-snowflake-prince-charming waiting for you out there, and sure as hell there's no (rad)feminist man who will understand you. The sooner you understand this, the better.

No. 132041

Never been on FDS but I've never had trouble with it.
Works best if you act willing to pay/split and then they'll insist on paying for you.

No. 132044

He’s extremely hot, and I think he may want to at least fuck me. He acts awkward around me, sometimes finds lame excuses to talk to me, but always keeps it 100% flirt free. I won’t be living/working here forever and I really just want to fuck him, but I’m so shy and awkward around moids when they’re actually fuckable, as I’m used to settling for ugly betas due to ripping insecurity.

I have a problem with FDS because they all seem to chase the same type of man. For me, a high value man is emotionally stable, caring, patient, not hypersexual (ideally a virgin), good looking, youthful somewhat feminie, loyal, etc. I wouldn't want a guy who pays for anything and is a provider or an "alpha" male. I'm curious if any anons feel the same?

I read it some time ago, but I remember being kind of uncomfortable with how the relationship between the 30 year old woman and the (14-15?) boy was developed. Like, the woman couldn't restrain herself from being attracted to him, so she ghosted the kid for years. Eh… Reminds me of some lolicon mangas where the teacher is OBVIOUSLY ATTRACTED to the 6 year old kid but he tries not to give in to his fantasies (yuck)…

Sorry for derailing.

No. 132051

There's actually been a couple timeskips and the kid is in high school now. She's never really admitted she loved him, but he confessed to her in a way. Still a chance he'll end up with a classmate.

This is what happens when you try to discuss dating on an imageboard, someone derails with underage manga shit instead.

No. 132054

This, a high value man to me is empathetic and virginal as well.

But I also think the philosophy behind FDS is that no naturally kind males exist so seeking these sorts out is pointless, and that only money and looks can be the benefits of engaging with men.

I hope it's ok to ask for dating advice here, since it's FDS-centric.

I've been in a relationship with this guy for a few years. He's a gentle nerd type. However, I make $10k a year (student) and he makes $200k with $100k in savings. He insists on splitting the bill every time. He even keeps track of minor expenses from over a year ago, and the value of gifts - only brought it up once, but it made me feel awful.

How should I handle this? He grew up very poor, and hates spending money on himself, so I feel bad trying to force him.

No. 132058

Holy shit, dump him. I don't think bill splitting is the worst thing in the world later in a relationship and I think frugality is usually a good trait, but the disparity in income is too much to justify it. What a fucking scrooge.

No. 132059

Keeping track of the value of gifts sounds like a controlling fucking nightmare. Gifts are gifts. There's no obligation put on someone for accepting them and there isn't a scale you have to balance.

This seems like a pretty big red flag.

No. 132060

He isn't a poor boy anymore. He makes so much more money than you. Talk to him about it.

No. 132061

What I don't like about /FDS/ is the gold digger mentality. I don't have a problem with gold digging, that's the traditional normal role for a woman.

However some women forget that an "alpha" man who provides also means control. These birds chasing old rich dick often end up used for a Chanel bag. That's pathetic. They're so delusional thinking they will finesse old experienced men lol.
Not to mention that these strategies don't work for ugly women. The "man must provide" mentally often implies that a woman's value is first and foremost her body.

The reality is: best couples are those where the two partners are equal (looks, status, age).

No. 132062

it's just sugar baby rhetoric with a little more misandry sprinkled in.

No. 132063

I've literally never seen FDS say that women should be going after rich old farts or that women should be completely financially dependent on men. The point of having the man pay for dates and financially provide is because it weeds out the men who aren't willing to invest anything into a stable relationship. It makes sense in that context. Do you honestly believe the man who buys you a McChicken and expects to fuck on the first date is more willing to invest in a relationship than the man who actually puts in effort to impress you?

No. 132064

Actually I don't see too much of that on there. Its mainly taking care of yourself and building yourself up. Not looking for a man who will provide for you all the way.
Looking for man to pay for your date is not the same thing.

No. 132065

The problem with gold digging is not having your own money and therefore relying on a man for it. Another problem is lowering your standards in other areas in order to prioritize money. It's not the same as expecting a man to invest financially in you to prove he's actually interested and not just trying to get the easiest fuck possible out of your interactions, and I've never seen FDS encourage women to date or 'finesse' old men, the opposite is more common.

I can understand finding it uncomfortable. I've always liked to pay for myself for a few reasons… so he doesn't think I owe him anything, so he knows I'm not poor, and yes, in a pickme-esque fashion I didn't want to be seen as a gold digger. I just genuinely don't need a guy's money so it felt like selling myself short if I acted like I did, as if we aren't equal even in finances. But men have pretty much forced our hand, if we could assume they weren't trying to get low effort sex out of every date, if we could be equal without them taking advantage at every opportunity, we wouldn't need to vet them like this.

No. 132066


On reddit they're all obsess with providing and I've seen typical Sugar bb tweets like "dating young men is like an unpaid internship"….It's also very common in women's forums.

A rich guy taking you to fancy restaurants and buying you a bag, isn't doing more effort than the poor guy buying you McDonalds. Providing isn't a sign of respect or commitment. Young women are easily impress with money and they should not.

It's just about common sense. Of course, someone really interested in you will do efforts. Of course you should care about yourself first, especially when you're young.
Idk too much "YAASSS QUEEN" shit in FDS and when you see the posters history, you see women that have dated drug dealers or else. I mean…

No. 132067

This woman's videos were recommended in the FDS sub. Sure, she might have some good tips (I have only watched some of it) but I can't get over this adult woman says "sprinkle sprinkle" and talking about being "too pretty to work". Well, what happens when you get older? What if your rich husband decides he wants a younger woman to show off?

FDS has a good message about avoiding fuckboys and being confident but this shit is promoting oldfashioned gold digging.

No. 132068

I hope this doesn't come across of as racebait but there seems to be a disportionately large amount of black women that are into FDS

No. 132069

Shera is a whole ass mess as well. She is the worst person to take advice from, most of the good takes she has are common sense or regurgitated. Not to mention she didn't exactly follow her own advice. Waiting 7 years for some older man to divorce his wife while your in your 20s doesn't seem like a good goal at all, but that's what she did before promptly pushing out his babies. She's no boss or anything to aspire to, yet people flock to her. She just genuinely seems lazy, so that's why I guess she thinks being a housewife for some sloppy seconds is cute.

>A rich guy taking you to fancy restaurants and buying you a bag, isn't doing more effort than the poor guy buying you McDonalds. Providing isn't a sign of respect or commitment.
Lol you're incredibly naive if you think a broke man with no ambition is just as capable of a committed relationship than someone who has his shit together at least. My mom works two jobs and her ex bf literally called her a gold digger because she told him to get a fucking job while he was living with her and not paying any rent. The fuck…

No. 132071

I didn’t say that. What I said is that for a rich man, buying you a bag isn’t much and doesn’t mean shit. Some of these men have bitches in every city and a whole hidden family.

I don’t say that dating a fucking bum is better. The two partners should have the same vision of life and equivalent status.

No. 132072

I agree with your point. How can you be 18yo and expect men your age to provide for you?
They're telling those women to seek mid to late 20s men at best if they wanna be provided for.

Well, yes, but no need to be bitter about it. I skimmed through this thread and that board, and none of this talk has anything to do with my life as a middle aged woman. But us older people have no need for such things, we know what we want and how to get it (spoiler alert: It's different for everybody). It's natural that the younger someone is, the more they'll be drawn towards stuff like this as part of their learning experience and experimentation.

That's not "cringy", just common sense.

This isn't about men's feelings or whatever, this is about how these 666 rule are almost set up to fail, the perecentage of men who are well off, are over 6 feet and are endowed must be rarer then 5% of the US and the chances are is those guys will already be married to some other well off woman

No. 132079

So what if one women has higher standards than average? You're just assuming that she doesn't have anything to offer herself. Hot girls can afford to have high standards.

Why are men allowed to go for women way above their league but said woman is shallow if she won't settle for his broke, ugly fatass?

Women who are highly attractive and accomplished really should have high standards. It’s not unusual for a man to have standards that surpass their own assets, the incels are very guilty of this.
I personally use FTS as a way to get a partner who is equal to myself. Insecurity has lead me to date guys who are far lesser than myself, thinking they’d appreciate and be nice to me, but I ended up being abused, and I left the relationship as a diminished person. I want a man who is good in bed, not ugly, not badly groomed and a good conversationalist, ambitious and creative. All of those are assets I know I have to offer myself. I deserve to expect a man that matches me in quality and status, and I’d rather be alone than settle for less. If men and handmaidens want to cry about it then tough shit.

I was thinking about creating thread on /snow/ based on incels forum (much like the fun r/incels threads we had few years ago), so I've been "researching" and the standards they all have simply floored me. Out of around 200 active users, there are maybe a couple willing to "settle" for their "looksmatch" (of course, only if she is a young white virgin). There are literally only two users who'd be willing to date a non-virgin woman around their age who is just as (un)attractive as them. Two out of two hundred have somewhat realistic/reasonable standards. And yet, I don't see anyone making fun of that. Those men are the lowest value males you can think of - NEETs, horrible hygienie, extremely unattractive, they often have BPD/NPD, they are almost all pedos (as in, literal pedos - they want to date 11yos), violent, lazy, etc. And all of them have sky high standards.
Just think about those men every time you get angry at attractive women who want o date attractive men.

No. 132083

I have high standards but they don't come in the form of a set height, salary and dick size. To me she sounds like scrotes saying they will only be in a relationship with a woman who has D cups minimum. It's not having a preference for taller men, bigger dicks and large wallets that's weird, it's autistically fixing a minimum size and making it such a priority.

A man, no matter how attractive, smart and rich he is would immediately looks pathetic to me if he had a minimal bra size as a primary criteria when looking for a relationship.

No. 132084

I mean I agree to a certain extent, it just doesn’t bother me. I don’t have a set menu for what’s attractive, like being 6 ft with a 6 inch would make a man seem more attractive im not gonna lie, but I’d be far more attracted to a guy 5’8 with a smaller dick if I got along well with him, found him interesting and funny and he pleased me in bed, similar interests and values etc.
I don’t want a prize, the way some of these people do, I want a companion. I say 5’8 cos I’m fairly tall for a woman, I’m just barely shorter than that.

Well let me tell you ladies something: Ever since applying the FDS lens to dating, it's been very eye-opening. I'm in so much shock about how much disrespect I used to tolerate and was gaslit into believing was normal.
These men literally have nothing else to offer but the audacity!
Right now I'm relying on online dating (OLD) to meet new men. Can't say I had better luck meeting men through friends as they turned out to be monsters too. But I digress.

Anyway when I finally match with someone who seems compatible, they wind up being such low effort fucks. Because clearly they're spinning so many other women behind our backs. They want to get the most sex for the least effort and maximum convenience. So no offers to have a first date over dinner or something pricey to impress (date cheap, if not for free), attempt to manipulate the woman to take on the emotional load (make her chase, ask questions, and plan the dates), and to set the meetup location at their convenience (the woman is forced to be more invested by spending time and money to meet).

Matched with this dude who wasn't my type looks-wise but appeared to be put together due to his clean and stylish living conditions and hobbies. He reached out but I put him on the backburner for a few days. When I returned the message he wanted to meet up. I asked him what he was proposing. "Drinks," I was thinking sure–cheap. I hate having first dates in loud and crowded places.
I went along with it just to see where it went. Found myself asking the majority of the questions to drag his own date out of him. Pathetic right? If men ask women out they should already have an offer wtf.
When? And where? Saturday, okay. Time? "6pm." I laughed, I told him that's when people have dinner not drinks (he'd rather go cheap than spend for dinner). Instead of offering dinner, he wanted to push back the time. "8pm." Lol, sure dude. Okay, where for drinks? "[The nearest bar to where I live]." He didn't even bother to check where I was driving from to meet him at a venue that's literally 10 minutes from his place. And he didn't care, because his next statement? "Yeah we can get drinks and see where it goes from there. You can come back to my place and watch Netflix."
So basically this dude is expecting sex for less than the cost of a dinner date, with the added perk that I'd get gussied up and drive myself to him just for his dick.
I replied "Very convenient," then he responded "…okay?" Then he must have went back to my profile before I blocked him, because then he followed up with a "Oh you live in X?" Lmao, I guess he thought I'd throw myself at him.

These men are fucking creeps. What I hate most of all is that not even a month ago I would have agreed to this shitfest. Me expending all the effort just for an awkward and subpar fuck at the end of my night who I'd never speak to again.

Honestly unless your dating pool is mostly Hispanic guys for whatever reason, it's really not unreasonable to expect a guy to be above 5'10"
I hate that manlets make it out to be this huge deal.
Tbh the most abusive men Ive known have been manlets. They're insecure as fuck.

I don't think the rest of the 666 rule matters much though, depending on your age. If you're in your early/mid twenties it's more important to know a mans work ethic and his career plans than what his current salary is.

I prefer short men. I’m a sexually dominant woman and I’m just more attracted to men who are shorter than me. 5’5”-5’7” is ideal. Literally every single time this has come up around a man, he’s immediately started trying to convince me that I’m mistaken, and that I ACTUALLY prefer tall men. It doesn’t matter whether the guy in question is tall or short. They immediately get really defensive and weird. Is it just the idea that women might have varied and unpredictable preferences? It’s really obnoxious.

Anyone else noticing an uptick in men expecting women to drive out to them?
Twice now through dating apps, I've had to turn down men who expect me to drive out where they live in order to have a dinner date or drink that they invited me on! They know where I live too so it's not like they mistook me for local. Also it's not like I wouldn't be weirded out if they offered to pick me up but they don't even bother with that anymore.

Good grief they just want convenience and sex on demand. I'm sure some women actually take them up on this too.

For anyone into FDS, I highly recommend The Rules Revisited blog. It's not very well-known but it's one of the greatest female dating blogs I've ever read. Better than the actual "Rules" book.
I recommend reading the Important Posts in the sidebar first; the other posts are just building on those ones.

Desperate women allowed this to happen

When I was still dating (a year ago) most of it involved
>Only being able to see them if you drove
>Dates involved you paying for shit or just having sex and leaving, after a few dates all you would be to him is to come over at 12 pm, give him a blowjob and have shitty sex and leave
>No affection, no compliments, no cuddling, no kissing and if there was it was gross/an excuse for him to judge your body

That's it. That's literally it. I was so used to being abused by men my boyfriend was getting a culture shock, I would cry anytime he cuddled me because I simply never got that before and he seemed so sad because I just assumed he wanted to have sex with me and had me leave. I wouldn't allow him to take off my clothes because most of the time when a man took my clothes off all I got was insulted, I was so use to being cold it hurt my current bf when we first started dating because I have a really fucked up idea of what relationships are.

But how do we get rid of pickmes who allow this to happen? Men will get what they can get while putting in the lowest amount of effort possible, as long as if there is okay looking women willing to give themselves to low effort and bottom tier men, then men won't ever improve and the only people to reproduce is desperate pickmes who are going to be horrible influences on their daughters and mentally ill and selfish men who are going to be horrible influences on their sons

I'm honestly scared to see where the world will go, men will continue to deteriorate into greasy blobs who do nothing but cheat, fart, play video games and watch porn all day, women will be the ones who have to work hard on their careers to make money to support men, work out to keep their figure in check, all while doing the cleaning, cooking, child bearing, and so on.

Here's a great way to out filter men, that me and my friends have tried and has been proven accurate

I ask them what thier favorite book is. If it’s Atlas Shrugged, run. If it’s Catcher in the Rye or The Great Gatsby, then its likely he hasn’t read a book since high school. Maybe okay but he’s probably boring. If it’s anything by Margaret Atwood or Toni Morrison he’s lying to get into your pants. Any classic sci-fi or fantasy is acceptable but be very wary of men who are too enthusiastic about sci-fi and fantasy. Biographies are also acceptable but obviously it depends on who it’s about!

Anything by Franzen, Palahniuk, Pynchon or Chabon, run. Vonnegut? I mean, use caution. But generally okay. Dickens? Make sure he’s not lying but Dickens is a win.

Be a little wary if it’s something by a female author. cayse he’s probably lying and trying to just fuck you. Unless it’s Frankenstein, then he’s an adorable weirdo if you're into that, if its Harry Potter then it mean's he’s too young/immature for you.

Stoicism in itself is not bad. The modern day followers of it tend to have a superiority complex and use stoicism as an excuse for lacking empathy and acting like a general narc. "I'm not emotional like you/women. I'm stoic/logical." Aka "I have the authority listen to me."

As for porn addiction, I have 0 empathy towards men. You rarely see women addicted to it, and it's from the perspective of being the sub (abused). Porn made by men for men is violent, exploits children as well due to demand. For scrotes having a love of quoting statistics and pulling up numbers for divorce cases, they sure like to ignore information on this. Front page of porn website is facials, abusing relatives, anal, etc. This is on the tame side. Stop boo hooing for men. They gaslight us our whole lives as unintellectual, but we're supposed to forgive that they just completely ignore obvious patterns of sexism in the content they watch. The problem is I see men as human and would check that behavior if porn addiction affected me. Most men who go nofap, don't do it because porn is bad for those involved, but just because he wants to "retain semen" or "boost testosterone." He thinks it makes him even more masculine and desirable, which seems fine and dandy, until he uses this newfound ego to be an ass, all while claiming to be an intellectual stoic, this was his notice to begin with. Everything is about making males feel better. The whole point of this thread is to stop coddling them.

You'll find there's a large and growing movement of men against porn for scientific, cultural, political and religious reasons. These are men who got exposed to it at a young age before they can reflect critically on it. It really is addictive, it's a supernormal stimulus that keeps people hooked the way gambling, cocaine and video games do.

I've spent a good deal of time in those forums, and the reasons they want to quit aren't reducible just to ego-boosting. Many of them report one day how far down the hole they'd gone when they realise how niche and grotesque the stuff they need to watch to get off, compared to the vanilla stuff that used to satiate within seconds.

The superpowers are signs of returning to normality. For guys who've been going at it since a young age (and it gets younger each year), it's a very transformative experience. Especially given that so many are adolescent and trying to get their lives going. The porn has the dehumanising effect. So many reports I've read affirm how happy they are to be free from it's grip and in the company of real women. They all report marked improvements in their relationship with women. That YBOP site has plenty of studies aligned with that too.

The irony of r/femaledatingstrategy is it's a complete mirror image of the redpill/ manosphere / MRA / incel cluster, but women aren't being called out for it. I'm all for an even playing field, and the coddling/condemnation is clearly unevenly distributed by issue for either of the sexes.

You can't be serious. Care to elaborate? Yeah, some aspects of fds can be pretty cringy and juvenile, however, it's not anywhere close to levels of malice and violence present in male circles. Top posts on fds are screenshots of lackluster guys saying embarrassing things, or girls' personal experiences with abusive men, while those male communities are filled with posts like "can't wait for female sex slaves!", "women above 20 are old hags", "here's a guide on how to emotionally manipulate, destroy and cheat on women far above your league". FDS is more about adjusting your standards (men should initiate and court) rather than manipulating and lying to potential male partners through "game". It's about having firm standards.

That's the opposite of what I said lol. Women should have sex ONLY with good men. That way, women shape men as a group into being good – since being good is the only way to get sex. TRP as a movement exists only because women are being lax in their vetting. The less mysoginistic values of TRP – self-improvement and independence – are enforced by FDS vetting.

100% agreed. Video game addiction is also considered a red flag by FSD and it's not without merit. They're literally designed to be addictive these days. I feel sorry for the children exposed to the predatory mobile games I've seen. Many of them are no different than gambling.

No. 133412

>it's not anywhere close to levels of malice and violence present in male circles

Isn't it? It seems just as hateful as TRP. The top/sidebar posts by staff are pretty good and have a surprising clarity in them but the comments are becoming increasingly substance-less, radical and hateful. Early TRP used to be like this too until everything was drowned out by man children who never got past the anger phase. It remains to be seen whether FSD will suffer from a similar phemomenon as the userbase grows but generally the more users you have the worse the community.

Both communities are filled with people deeply disillusioned with the other sex and the hate is likely to only ever increase as members of the community reinforce each other. Both encourage members to adopt radical and uncompromising strategies towards the other sex. Both look down on people who betray the interests of their own sex (chumps marrying their oneitis vs. pickmes indulging LVMs).

FSD is totally fine with LVMs literally dying off or having their dicks rot from lack of use. They're also opposed to them getting any release via prostitution or even porn. Given that LVMs are the vast majority of men according to FSD, I question the stability of a society where FSD is a dominant ideology. Not that TRP is any better since it discourages marriage. A society where everyone is able to form families and raise children properly is most sensible.

No. 133413

Why should LVM be able to get married and form families? For the record, LVM doesn't mean low income, introverted, shy, unambitious, or whatever LVM think it means. These things alone do not make a man LV. By the very definition a LVM is a man who will mistreat their wife and be a poor life partner and father. This doesn't necessarily mean abuse either. It could be neglect, laziness, apathy, or whatever. Not everyone should be entitled to marriage and children. Sad fact is, most men are just not suited to be in a relationship, while most women tend to go above on beyond. That's why there's a need for them to be "picky"

The truth is when it comes to dating, the majority of men need to be weeded out. It's a woman's job to do so. It has nothing to do with hate or malice. It's a simple matter of self-preservation and preservation of her children (if the woman in question decides to have them). While with TRP, everything they do is out of anger and hate that they didn't get their dick wet.

No. 133414

>A society where everyone is able to form families and raise children properly is most sensible.

This is the world you live in right now. Do you see healthy and happy societies?
Why are you so opposed to the idea that some people are better than others, and that these people should be the ones breeding?
The truth of the matter is, the vast majority of the people born today are either from rape or an ambivalent pregnancy. Why should any of these people be born, and why should their parents have been born either?

No. 133422

>Why should LVM be able to get married and form families?

If most men are LVM, then HVM are rare and it stands to reason not every woman will be able to have one. Currently FDS has about 50k subscribers, meaning it represents an elite group of women. If applied on a wider scale, problems are likely to arise.

I'd like to believe there is some way to integrate these people into such a society. FDS doesn't give them any options: no relationships, no casual sex, no prostitution, not even porn. They aren't entitled to any of this but it doesn't change the fact the result will be a huge number of very unhappy men. One could say LVMs could become HVMs and therefore gain fair access to relationships and sex but I doubt anyone on FDS believes they are capable of improvement.

>It has nothing to do with hate or malice.

Doesn't feel that way. A lot of women on FDS talk about LVM like they're subhumans.

>While with TRP, everything they do is out of anger and hate that they didn't get their dick wet.

I don't dispute that. TRP nowadays is filled with people who get off on the anger and don't actually do anything to improve their own worth. The core of TRP has a salvageable message involving self-improvement and becoming someone women are actually attracted to but that takes hard work which many guys simply don't put in.

Not sure if it's wise to accept this. Many atrocities have been justified through this line of reasoning. It implies certain people are subhuman.

Is that not what's happening now? Most women can't find HVM so they settle for LVM. FDS is just telling you not to settle, to know your worth and to not give up. If you find a HVM, great. If not, being single is way better than even taking the chance of birthing a child to a man who would mistreat you and your children.

>They aren't entitled to any of this but it doesn't change the fact the result will be a huge number of very unhappy men.

They would be unhappy in a relationship too, though. A lot of them end up resenting their wives no matter how much she does for them. The ones without a relationship think their lives would change once they find the right woman, but that just doesn't happen. They're alone for a reason, and it's usually because of their bitter personalities.

>One could say LVMs could become HVMs

That's what should happen. What will probably happen very soon is, they'll get addicted to VR sex or sexbots and leave everyone else alone.

>Doesn't feel that way. A lot of women on FDS talk about LVM like they're subhumans.

Usually towards men who are violent and hurt women. And those men are indeed subhuman.

No. 133426

>FDS is just telling you not to settle

This is sensible advice when it comes to LVMs. Do perfect HVMs exist, though? They will no doubt have some problems. How much variance, if any, from their targets should women be prepared to accept? I've seen one thread where a woman rejected a fine HVM solely because of his dick size, a factor that in no way contributes to mistreatment of women or children.

Is it acceptable for women to be single forever if they don't find an HVM? Is it acceptable to go without sex in order to avoid indulging lesser men? From what I've read, FDS doesn't approve of casual sex or friends with benefits.

>They would be unhappy in a relationship too, though.

I'm inclined to agree. What LVMs want most is unconditional access to sex in order to validate their own self-worth. They want lovers who have sex with them despite their failings. Giving them sex keeps them happy but it obviously does nothing to cure them of their problems.

>What will probably happen very soon is, they'll get addicted to VR sex or sexbots and leave everyone else alone.

I was under the impression FDS opposed this kind of thing on principle, just like prostitution.

If someone turns down a guy who is otherwise perfect simply because of his dick, then they are retarded.

>Is it acceptable to go without sex in order to avoid indulging lesser men? From what I've read, FDS doesn't approve of casual sex or friends with benefits.

I'll get shit for this, or get called misogynistic, but I think if you aren't prepared for the risk, no matter how small, to have a child with that man then you shouldn't have sex with him. Casual sex is risky in many ways and not to mention unsatisfying. Let's be real, LVMs don't try. Most women can get themselves off way better than any man can. The only reason to have sex with them is for validation and approval, so what's the point? He gets his orgasm and ego boost, while the woman benefits minimally, if at all.

>I was under the impression FDS opposed this kind of thing on principle, just like prostitution.

Not at all. If they are busy with VR and sexbots they aren't going to try to harass women for sex. It's a win-win.

Like what, men actually stepping up to the plate and treating women well enough to be high value? LVM dying alone as they deserve?

I'm sure there would be violent pushback and maybe strikes or some shit from men and that's scary to think about, but it's sad that aside from an 'elite group', women would have to universally subject themselves to men who treat them like shit just to avoid the threat of further violence.

>If someone turns down a guy who is otherwise perfect simply because of his dick, then they are retarded.
Nope. If that's going to make her sincerely unattracted to him, neither of them deserve to be subjected to that relationship. He deserves a woman who'd love his dick, she deserves a man she actually wants to fuck. Physical attraction is NOT an unfair standard regardless of what body part it is about. I've dumped a guy down for it and no regrets, ever. I liked him enough to know he deserves a gf who is super into him.

No. 133430

No, you look at the whole man and just not the dick. Functionality-wise, PIV is overrated as hell anyway. Sorry, but if one body part is enough to make you lose all attraction to someone you are smooth-brained. Smooth-brained like men who can only have partners with huge tits, or innie vaginas.

No. 133431

You don't know what FDS is if you think subjecting yourself to bad sex with a man you aren't sexually attracted to is, in any way, a good thing.

That'd be ideal but it's probably not gonna happen.

Probably. Lots of women too since HVM are rare and it's better for them to be alone.

>I'm sure there would be violent pushback and maybe strikes or some shit from men and that's scary to think about, but it's sad that aside from an 'elite group', women would have to universally subject themselves to men who treat them like shit just to avoid the threat of further violence.

Yeah, it's an ugly situation. Like it or not, a huge number of undesirable men exist and many of them are important parts of the workforce. They can't simply be ignored. We already have disgruntled incels shooting up schools.

>He deserves a woman who'd love his dick, she deserves a man she actually wants to fuck.

I understand that. For the vast majority of women, a thick penis will be better due to the sensitivity of the vagina to expansion. Smaller pemises simply aren't going to expand the vagina as much. There's no denying this.

Still, it's demoralizing when factors that can't be changed ultimately destroy one's chances for a relationship even if everything else aligns. A lot of men don't even bother trying because they're short or have small or even average dicks. This nihilism is at the root of black pill and related ideas. FDS is right when it says penis size warps the psychology of men.

No. 133433

I didn't even say that. I'm saying you're a brainlet who overvalues PIV just like men do.

Seems to be pretty common though. Women on FDS describing their experiences with big penises will no doubt make some men kill themselves.

Okay. I dare you to show ONE comment or thread advocating for stealing from and raping men, turning them into sex slaves, raping little boys and brutally murdering them. ONE.
Those LVM discussed by most FDS posters are abusvie, neglectful menchildren. It has nothing to do with looks, height, shy personality, etc. It's about respecting your partner and being willing to commit. I'm perfectly fine with those men not having any outlets. It's the only way they can actually improve.

No. 133446

Under 5 inches and/or noticeably thin at any length. Most sex I've had was probably between 5-6 inches and that's fine by me.

9 is such a tiny minority of men that it's not even worth considering, it's too unlikely you will ever encounter a dick that big. 7+ is big to me. I think a lot of women overestimate sizes they see irl tbh.

No. 133469

7+ and especially 9+ sounds fucking awful. Many women can't take dicks that size without pain and I don't know why they would want to. Big dicks, actually, dicks in general, are fucking overrated especially when you can get dildos that are the exact size, shape, and angle you want.

That makes no sense - no man can 'step up' and become taller, or get a bigger dick, or not be balding, etc. All things that FDS consider to make a LVM.

All FDS does is make both men and women miserable. If you have most women chasing only 10% of men, then 90% of men will be miserable. The remaining 10% will have lots of choices, and so have no need to settle down, making 100% of the women unhappy.

No. 133605

Talking about red pill, not incel boards. I realize there's significant overlap these days but it wasn't always so. Red pill hate is disappointment that women can't live up to our expectations and fantasies, a "can't blame a dog for acting like a dog" sentiment towards women. There's plenty of that in FDS. The day I posted I saw one woman saying she'd never take men seriously ever again and that they're servants to her from now on. There's that undercurrent everywhere. The feeling that we're all beneath you.

What you describe is incel aggressiveness that slowly builds up in a man that doesn't get sex. It's a terrible frustration that consumes the man. Your "no" is offensive to them. It implies their genetic material, their very being is garbage. A woman judging the worth of a man is offensive – how can they be productive, respected members of society and still get rejected by a woman? Other men can value an incel but not a woman. So they replace your value system with theirs. So that men can have access to women according to their own value relative to each other instead of their value to the women. This ranges from "the father must choose an appropriate suitor for his daughter to marry" to "we should chain all women to walls spread eagle so that they're always available for us to fuck". This is the source of the violence and aggressiveness in porn.

>It has nothing to do with looks, height, shy personality, etc.

All it takes to find examples of women who take this stuff into account is searching FDS for "height" or "dick". One neat example is a woman's 666 criteria: 6 feet, 6 inches, 6 figures. Shy personality? FDS women will write you off as weak willed with no attitude if you don't approach them confidently. They call it "big dick energy".

>All FDS does is make both men and women miserable.

Red pill too to be honest. Everyone's angry and disappointed with each other and the hate is growing even stronger as time passes. I genuinely think traditional societies are a compromise between FDS and red pill. Men were socially conditioned by other men to be the best they could be and provide everything they could for their wives, but they also had the right to have sex with their wives.(male)

No. 133613

>All FDS does is make both men and women miserable.

It's almost as if exclusively pursuing individual desires and constantly thinking about pointless sex and relationships is wasting the talent and skills of actual people.
I can only imagine how skilled and talented proponents of FDS and their male equivalents would be if they devoted even half the time to strict devotion to a community based ideology (ie their local community, their family, their nation, their spirituality).

Why should everyone get to have sex? Why should everyone get to be in a relationship, based on purely individualistic desires?
Just because they were born? Is that really the only standard we're going to have for an act that literally produces the next generation?

No. 133635

shera's a mess, but she's one of the few people under the fds umbrella pushing things to the ideological limit and i appreciate it. trp has no qualms about lying to women, cheating on them, benefiting off them or generally acting in bad faith. i like to see a similar perspective from the fds side.

Men will make time for women they want to be with.

If a guy really wants you hes going to be quick as fuck responding to your texts, he will be the one who makes the plans and If he knows hes going to be MIA for a while he will inform you before hand because he doesnt want to lose you lol

Because it's part of being human. We have a natural desire to have sex, without it we'd have died as a species. People who want sex but can't have it are marginalized, subhuman. They're literally lacking part of their humanity.

Wow now that sounded nihilistic and bleak asf, are you an incel yourself?, stop projecting, if people want sex and can't have it that makes them virgins, not literal human scum, don't you have any other skills or goals?, you sound like a cumbrain robot straigth from the basement, acting like sex is the only shit that matters, and no, don't say you meant it as ~only a part of being human~ when you clearly go around telling people to die for not acting like babymachines.

No. 133663

>All FDS does is make both men and women miserable.
Except if you've ever been on FDS, you'd notice endless posts about how much happier the women are, and how much better their self esteem is. If you actually internalize the principles, you're going to be perfectly happy even if you're single, because you don't live for male approval or settling just to tick off the marriage and kid boxes on the life script.

And you'd also notice that looks are not the defining factor in what makes a man high value or low value. Short, balding pindicks most likely don't meet most of the girls standards, but value is defined by how he treats a woman. If you're attracted to a manlet who commits and treats you well, he's high value.

>without it we'd have died as a species
But we could easily keep reproducing with a majority of men not getting sex, the idea that everyone needs to be paired up is an artificial social construct that has nothing to do with the species surviving. There's nothing natural about the nuclear family or women being dependent on one man for her/her kids survival. Sucks to be the failed men who never pass on their genes but maybe they should be less repulsive and evil.

I'm honestly thinking you're a scrot at this point. Boo hoo, poor men not getting sex, roasties are gonna get btfo when they end up alone for having standards, people have a 'duty' to be sexually accessible solely because they're married… lmao fuck off with that shit.

No. 133666

Never said it was the only thing that matters. It's wrong to simply dismiss relationships and sex as "pointless individual pursuits" though. Lots of people want this and feel as if they are lesser for not having it. Not subhuman in the literal ape gorilla sense but in the incomplete lacking the full human experience sense.

>the idea that everyone needs to be paired up is an artificial social construct that has nothing to do with the species surviving
>There's nothing natural about the nuclear family or women being dependent on one man for her/her kids survival.

Well, so is marriage, momogamous relationships. Societies that lack these elements have existed in the past but FDS isn't keen on returning to them. FDS women don't seem to think much of men who refuse to commit, marry or are polyamorous. It's not strictly necessary for everyone to be paired up, yet FDS clearly exists to help women get paired up with the best man possible.

>roasties are gonna get btfo when they end up alone for having standards

HVMs are a minority and therefore not every woman will get one. Never said they're gonna get "btfo" or anything. FDS says that being alone is good compared to being with an LVM, not that being alone is good in general.

>people have a 'duty' to be sexually accessible solely because they're married…

Like having lots of casual sex, becoming consumed with advancing your career, heavy drinking, joining the military, ect.

In real life if you pretend to be busy with an actual high value person they'll think you're not interested or clock you're trying to manipulate them and leave you alone.

The autism in TRP is in the forums. The reference material is pretty sane. It's about becoming an HVM actually. The self-improvement message from TRP aims to teach men how to become something women actually want. Basic stuff like getting off your ass and working out, working on your career/finances, improving your confidence, getting life experiences like travels to stop being boring, learning how to talk to people, being better in bed, etc.

The 'autism' comes from a combination of two factors: the amorality of TRP which enables aggressive men and the fact most men don't actually do anything to improve themselves because it's too hard.

No. 133683

That's generic self-improvement stuff you could get anywhere but it's mostly the sad counter productive relationship stuff that's being copied.

I've also noticed guys on my area in Tinder all say the same dumb shit on their profiles. It's either "looking for chill people" which is so code for "sex only" and something about "beer".

Update on this: she posted this to his TIMELINE, as in all our friends will see. I asked him to please remove his tag and he told me I was baselessly jealous/suspicious and asked me not to talk to him for 24 hours.

Some context: she posts and comments on his statuses constantly. If he posts it, she's there, even when she has nothing to say.

She's supposedly friendly to me and me and her comment on each others' posts from time to time. I'm aware that this is kindof pathetic on her part, but it has a really bad look as me and him are dating, and the post she shared from 2016 is specifically referring to him as her boyfriend, which hasn't been the case for years.

From what I can tell, she is very clearly still in love with him and I get the feeling that she's trying to encourage us to break up.

I think I might have to break up with him, but giving her what she wants feels to me like rewarding bad behaviour which I'm stubborn about. I love him a lot, so it's hard but I don't know how much more I can take.

Sis, you're the one who wins by ditching this trash heap! Shake her hand for taking this cheating-time-bomb-waiting-to-explode off your hands. A man who eyeballs other women while he's in a relationship is NOT a catch, and no less for an ex. He must be a special brand of sorry cuck to want the ex back.

If he tells you you're being ridiculous (you're not) and tries to dismiss you, I'd leave. I'm sure you do love him, and I'm sure you treat him well and this seems furiously unfair. Unfortunately, it's common for guys to get bored in comfortable relationships and it's especially common for them to reminisce about past relationships. You deserve a man who doesn't look back, and only looks forward to a future with you. You DESERVE that. And you are NOT responsible for his actions - you have not caused this, he knows what he is doing. Don't push your feelings of hurt aside to please a guy who (might) not even acknowledge them. That is a relationship that will never bring you contentment and fulfilment.

FDS has a tendency to only make women more insecure. They sell this idea of a high value this or high value that. So they get mistreated, they start to wonder whether they are low value themselves.

All reasons why they think they haven't found the mythical high value man yet. It could not possibly be that he doesn't exist. It could not possibly be that he isn't a good man if he wouldn't have dated her before she turned herself into a sex doll. Nevermind the more extreme version of FDS. It is pro sexwork and encourages women who just got out of abusive relationships to get into it. Yeah let's show men who is boss by objectifying ourselves and make servicing men our career.

Sure looks matter in a sense, but a lot of these women think they need to bleach their skin, get major plastic surgery, etc. to find love. They think that it is the only thing stopping them from finding a ''high value'' man. I have seen some pictures of them, they really don't look as horrendous as they describe themselves.
Their main problems usually are low self esteem, lack of social skills, being a NEET, etc. There is nothing wrong with 'leveling up' in a reasonable way, by getting a new haircut, skin routine, or something else that isn't too invasive or requires you to dislike a fundamental part of yourself. There is a problem when girls can say they need to change their ethnic nose and bleach their skin or they cannot find a high value man, and nobody bats an eye. Why would a high value man be so racist that he'd require them to bleach their skin?!

They think they are so careful and know everything, but not much later they are going ''not my Nigel''! They won't dump men who blatantly disrespect them and their boundaries. Despite advising everyone else to dump their partners for far less. If you even dare to call anyone out for being a clown, you can expect a ban.
Yeah there's no real point to following the FDS handbook.tm . It even has a specific timeline to follow, there is barely any room for flexibility. Which is somewhat understandable considering the naivety of the average poster.

How are you supposed to fuck according to FDS? Been on a dry spell for four months and that's making me desperate for some dick. It seems like FDS is only for women with a very low sex drive.

No. 133999

Someone in the gold-digger thread commented “men and people in general are not shitty rpg characters” and I’d keep that advice closer than any dating rule or handbook.
I’m sure there are more good men that would get bored with the waiting than there are good men who still hold onto the Madonna-whore complex. Especially in cities. Denying it once or twice to seem classy might work but I can totally see the 3 month rule backfiring.

>our number of past sexual partners is irrelevant and doesn't make us unworthy of love or lower our value
They like to pretend that waiting three months or whatever arbitrary standard makes sex with the man better somehow. I've had terrible sex with men I was committed to and awesome sex with guys I never got into a relationship with.
Having sex either lowers your value or it doesn't. There is no special magic circumstance that takes away the fact that a penis went into your vagina. No one cares that a woman waited three months, or one night.
I feel like it's their underhanded way to neg women who don't have the same hangups about commitment and sex as they do.

If any of the romantic, sensual, intimate things you're imagining were actually likely to occur during casual sex, we wouldn't need to have this conversation. Obviously good sex is better than a dildo, but random men who don't give a single fuck about you and actively look down on you for deigning to fuck them are more likely to make it traumatic and degrading than even remotely good.

Which you won't get from a hook-up. When people talk about this shit it's always "bloo hoo I want dick" instead of saying they want an intimate experience. Always makes me think they're a weirdo who worships dick and wants to be dommed by randos, which is why dildos don't do it for them.

It's not healthy to get validation from getting fucked by random men.

No. 134034

Sleeping around casually may work for some people, however it could make relationships later more tricky if there's ever trust issues etc. It sounds dumb but jealousy between partners can become very real even if it is irrational. Its probably also a good idea not to correlate having sex as an achievement. People overlook the sketchy situations they put themselves in for sex all the time when it isn't worth it. Idk

Because I wasn't taking anon 100% literally, I assumed she was thinking of interactions far more ~romantic~ than just kissing and touching alone. That is the bare minimum and hardly makes sex good or worthwhile in itself, and it doesn't mean a guy isn't treating you like a fleshlight. That part is what makes casual sex bad.

Same, not a huge fan of kissing even when the sex is otherwise quite passionate.

If he really cares about you, he’ll wait until you’re comfortable with having sex. Personally, I recommend waiting a few weeks and going on a few dates in the meantime so that YOU KNOW EACH OTHER REASONABLY WELL AS PEOPLE. Lol sorry for caps but it’s gross how pervasive and normalized hookup culture is even in serious dating.

You can say something like this: “I’m attracted to you, but I’d like to get to know you a little better. Is it okay if we wait?” Be flirty and teasing about it so that he’s encouraged to pursue you. And if he gives you shit about it, then you know to drop him.

Well FDS prioritizes having high self esteem and confidence, I'm sure most high school mean girls projected those traits. And it consistently recommends self improvement and having high standards for yourself (looks, social skills, career etc), so that you can feel entitled a man of equal value.

I never expected anything but normies, lots of FDS strategies and language seem ripped straight off Lipstick Alley then given a feminist angle. I like it, I'm more comforted by the idea of basic girls wising up to male bullshit than another femcel community feeling sorry for themselves.

No. 135573

I’ve used FDS tactics in the past. At the end of the day, some of it is helpful and some of it is not important.

I do think getting emotionally attached to a guy too soon is a problem many women have. They’re like a project, you sink all this time and effort into getting close to this guy and you become attached to him. You feel like you have to make it work! And he becomes lazy and bored with you because he can tell you’ve already selected your wedding dress, so he makes no real effort. Or he gets scared off. You have to wait until he’s actually invested in you to allow yourself to become invested in him.
I think it’s nice when men pay for dates and I do prefer when they pay for the first few. Depending on whether he has money or not, tho. If he’s kinda broke (or has a job that I know doesn’t earn much), I’ll split after the first date. But if a guy who has money doesn’t want to pay for the first few dates, I wouldn’t continue with him. Within the context of our current society, paying for the first few dates means something. I have a great career, I can afford anything I want on my own, so if you’re going out of your way to make me feel special by treating me to dinner I would consider that generous.

so I don't think the advice itself is bad or crazy "most" of the time, that "yasss queen slayy" type of empowerment to is really really not that appealing.

In my opinion FDS has good posts about uplifting women, avoiding terrible scrotes and remembering how awful men can be, but the handbook is a bit "too much" at times. It holds good principles as a whole but some small rules should definitely be overlooked if you're not living in 1950.

I think you can just ignore the parts that don't apply to you? Even if you hate marriage and just want a respectful relationship, the parts about self-confidence and not letting men waste your time would still be good advice. You don't have to buy into the entire philosophy to find it useful.

That is literally the complete opposite of what anyone says or does on FDS and goes against everything they promote. Settling to just to get married is the worst possible outcome, being single always is better than being with a low value man just to have anyone at all.

The 'get married in 1 year' thing is something I never see anyone mention either, maybe it's somewhere in the wiki and has been forgotten by the userbase. But the justification behind that idea is that
>men know if they want to marry a woman very, very quickly
>if he doesn't want to marry you, he'll still waste your time and you're at risk of being a forever girlfriend
>men will enjoy wifey benefits without making you a wife if you let them

1 year is a ridiculously short time period for getting married, but a time limit is not so illogical in itself.

Yup, I’ve ventured into those subreddits and circles and got the exact same vibe. It’s silly women who want to LARP as seductive vixens who get their pick of the litter, when in reality it’s mostly insecure women who have probably never had a meaningful relationship with a man. They peach that a man only cares about looks, but in my experience, personality does play a role. Yes, to attract a good, attractive man you have to be cute- but you also have to be a good person. Also these chicks source all their self esteem from how men treat them and their relationships, it seems a vapid way to live life.

r/femaledatingstrategy offers terrible advice. While it's rooted in come evolutionary psychology that makes sense (keyword: some), the problem with these subs (r/theredpill included) is that everyone on them really and truly believes they're at the top of the hierarchy and deserves the sort of partner that realistically only genuinely beautiful/handsome and highly intelligent people can obtain.

Just like redpillers think Mary Elizabeth Winstead is their looksmatch, FDSers believe they deserve an IBer making $400,000 a year who also looks like Christian Bale in his prime. In other words, it's a recipe for holding out for men sociopathic enough to use you over a long term period, or holding out for nothing at all. The only good advice they offer is to hold back on giving sex until he has proven himself a viable long-term partner, and really you could just ask your grandma to tell you that, you don't need damaged redditors on SSRIs to tell you.

I've noticed there's also this weird-as-fuck overlap between pinkpill communities and kpop fangroups. You'll often be reading a thread and some random no-value comment about how Asian/Korean "scrotes" are actually really great and everyone should be dating them instead because they're so much better than White/Black/Hispanic/etc ones. That or they're just Asian incels sockpuppeting. If it's the former I think the blind spot over how many women in the Korean entertainment have been killing themselves due to industrial-scale rape and abuse is kind of bizarre.

Finally, I'm tired of people who made bad decisions with prior partners (I swear half of the "ex boyfriend stories" here and on FDS are from people who dated random men they met on online games, interpals, 4chan or worse) projecting this onto others. Not everyone was dumb enough to date some disgusting /soc/ BDSM fetishist they met on a "kink thread".

tl;dr, don't take advice from damaged people online.

The good advice on FDS about marriage is mostly concerning stuff like making sure he's serious, not being stuck with him for ten years without a ring etc. That all makes sense. It's also something you could ask your grandmother for, you don't need to engage with people of very questionable mental health on reddit about it.

The problem is that it goes beyond that. There are plenty of heavily upvoted posts about how its important to get a very expensive ring (it isn't, my partner makes decent money and I told him to spend a fifth of what he planned to and to put the rest in a savings account). There's this whole gold-digging undercurrent on FDS that I find impossible to reconcile with actual, good dating advice because the simple fact is there aren't enough good looking, wealthy men to go around, certainly not if you're talking about for women on places like 4chan and FDS.

They've also got this weird obsession of assuming if you like any sort of male aesthetic beyond kpop boys you're a "pick me". For example, I find dad bods cute. Not huge, obese men, but a tiny bit of pudge is something I've always liked. FDS would call me a pickme, say I like "LVM" etc if I ever posted something along those lines on there, just because I don't think jungkook is peak male aesthetics.

No. 139868

It's because it attracts a lot of people from chan culture/imageboards. Damaged people in other words. Remember how the cosplay scene at anime cons essentially just became a place for gossip, hookups, he-said/she-said, drama etc? It was the same thing: people who never experienced that at school found another space to recreate it.

FDS has a few different groups on there. The good content generally comes from the "involved with men" r/gendercritical types who still want to date and marry, but want to avoid the sociopathic hellscape that men (predominantly) have made of modern dating. You've also got a lot of girls who obviously were raised on imageboards on there, made bad choices in their youth and now feel angry and vengeful about it. These are the types who make posts about aborting male children and saying that any man who doesn't have a seven inch penis is inferior. It's almost like the latter group took what incels said about women and decided to internalize it and become it.

Yeah you're 100% correct but the right response is simply to disengage from this modern culture in its entirety. Not create something equally bad out of spite.

This is nonsense and you know it. When called out FDS backtracks and tries to claim they aren't gold-diggers, but there's literally thousands of comments that suggest otherwise.

Another anon put it best. FDS's generic advice is actually quite good. It's about being a little skeptical of men, in an age where too many women have become too eager to believe their weasel words and take them on trust, because we assume they have the same levels of empathy we do (they don't). The sidebar and so on also provide good, working advice. But that generic boilerplate advice (that any older female relative worth her salt would give you) isn't the userbase of the site. And the userbase of the site are largely damaged people from imageboards who use the platform as a way to cope with past mistakes and plan out what will be forever unexecuted and fundamentally delusional stratagems of obtaining a wealthy, attractive k-pop lookalike. You can clearly see this if you've ever joined the discord, by the way. The userbase is insane and has constant doublethink.

Case in point: a few days ago they were cooing over some older male youtuber who created a channel for people who never had father's to tell them how to do stuff like unblock drains. Saying what an amazing man he was and how they wish they had a dad like him and how HV he was, when physically I could really easily see his picture being used to illustrate "LVM looks", e.g. receding hairline and so on.

More broadly, the more I interact with people from here, the chans and elsewhere in the weebverse the more convinced I am that none of you have ever interacted with normal people in your entire lives. No exaggeration. The men you all talk about either sound like they were pulled straight from /r9k/ or an incel board, or like on of the more sociopathic, sexually successful 4channers like Sam Hyde. And the men are exactly the same. Men from 4chan and other similar websites really do believe in their heart of hearts that every girl is some e-thot with an onlyfans who has a partner count in the double digits precisely because those are the only women they interact with in the first place.

God damn it people, go out into the real world. Meet people at dinner parties, through family friends, even at bars. People on imageboards, at anime cons, in online gaming communities, on the "twitter anisphere" etc. These aren't normal people. They're not exceptional people either. They embody the worst qualities of both men and women imaginable. They're going to continue to make you miserable. And if you're meeting people on the basis of "shared kinks", then God help you.

How do I get over the guilt of having "a type"? I just feel shallow and I'm not even pretty and im dark skin. I just find it hard to be attracted to anyone who isnt a tall, skinny, pretty boy with nice hair and clothes who is also emotionally mature. I know I wont get this BUT I have a hard time getting over the guilt of being so shallow becuz I low key think I'm trash. Idk why I feel bad.

I've never joined the FDS discord but still seeing these attitudes on the subreddit is bizarre. I don't understand the man-haters who post on FDS because what does the subreddit have to offer them, isn't there the femalelevelupstrategy? Like I understand man-haters but wish they would look into separatist ideology instead of devoting so much energy and thought into manhating. Putting that energy into the main sub when it's about women who still want to navigate dating is strange.

>How do I get over the guilt of having "a type"?
Don't. You're entitled to have preferences.
>I just find it hard to be attracted to anyone who isnt a tall, skinny, pretty boy with nice hair and clothes who is also emotionally mature.
You don't have control over who your body physically reacts to, with the exception you have an unhealthy mindset towards those who are the opposite of your preferences (ie feeling disdain for short men that have no control over this). That would suggest you like what you do over hatred of the opposite and what ideas/stereotypes you associate with it. Pretty is subjective, as is nice hair. Emotionally mature should be everyone's standard. Nothing here is unreasonable. You weren't even specific.

You are entitled to love and respect regardless of where you are in life, including how you perceive yourself. You are a woman, there is a man out there who finds you pretty (not that your worth should be based off of that). You are or you aren't pretty is how you perceive, and as consequence, carry yourself. Whoever finds you attractive is going to, regardless of how you feel. You might as well see yourself positively. Skin tone is irrelevant. Those that make you feel bad about it aren't worth your time. Easier said than done; our culture has a long way to go. There's underlying psychological causes here; therapy might help.

I completely agree. The narcisstic and "unbothered high quality elegant woman" way of behaving in order to attract a man is in itself self-defeating. in my experience it has only been insecure simps who fall for this facade, and quality men can see right through it. On top of that, they advocate being a high value woman and yet a woman of that status would feel no need to roleplay as a seductress or stoop to playing mind games in order to keep a man. It's unhealthy but easy to get addicted to if you derive self-esteem from men chasing after you.

This, tbh. If you spend enough time around them you'll realize they're mostly as successful as community college graduates working at a Starbucks part-time. Most of the pictures I've seen are mediocre, if not blatantly unattractive. It's amusing in the same way as TRP how ridiculously inflated their self-worth is.

Not racebaiting here, but I've noticed that a lot of them are black women, has anyone else noticed this too?

No. 144982

they have a lot of good points (wait at least a few months until having sex if you want commitment, avoid casual sex, weed out cheap/exploitative men, call out pornsick and abusive behaviour, theres also some good advice on looking out for red flags, etc.), but sometimes they just come off as insane to me. there are so many obviously fake posts. it doesnt help how american-centric a lot of the discussions and advice are. recently ive been seeing a lot more "pick-me" posts and comments too, maybe over the last month or so, which has gotten me questioning it.

im a part of the sub, but only because they do occasionally give good advice, as opposed to most of the other relationship advice places which are very biased in favour of men, and it's also one of the last places on reddit to freely bitch about men as well kek. dont take it too seriously.

tbh i think women who go into dating solely with the goal of marriage are pathetic. it's hard to explain because it's like why else do people date? but it's a very specific type i'm talking about. like, marriage is the only thing on the brain and they just want a husband and it doesn't really matter who is standing in for that role, they just need to get married.

So I've been having some dating woes, and my mom gave me this old book she bought when she was young called Mars and Venus on a Date. It's by a dude called John Gray, who is a famous author in the relationship category. The book itself is obviously a bit dated since it was published in 1997, but it's actually incredible how so much of the book preaches what FDS seems to. I mean, here are some snippets that stood out to me (these are specific to dating with the goal of a relationship of course, not causal sex):

>When a man comes on strong in stage one (attraction) and then pulls back in stage two (uncertainty), a woman sometimes feels pressure to give back sexually. She has received so much that she feels obligated to return the favor. She hopes that by responding in a sexual manner and fulfilling his desires, she will regain his interest. By giving more of herself than she is ready to give, however, she can actually sabotage a relationship. More is not always better.

>A woman needs to understand that by receiving and responding in a warm and friendly way to a man's romantic gestures she is already giving back to him. This basic understanding is crucial, and women today are missing it. Quite often a woman feels that she is not giving enough in return, and then she feels obligated to give more.

>If a woman's reaction to uncertainty is to pursue a man, it can actually prevent him from moving through his uncertainty to discover whether he wants to invest in a relationship or not. This is why, traditionally, woman don't call men. The wise woman waits for him to pursue her.

>Young women, particularly, feel a pressure not to let a man pay on a date so that they don't feel obligated to have sex. This is the woman's way of saying that he should not get his hopes up. The problem with this approach is that he will get the idea that she is not receptive at all and lose interest. Just because a woman enjoys a man's gifts does not in any way obligate her to give more than a smile or a thank you.

Now I haven't tried FDS (or any kind of dating strategy really), but I've heard of it and the premise, and it just really stood out to me that this book written over 20 years ago by an 'expert' in the dating field - and a man - also emphasises so much that woman should allow themselves to be pursued. That the role of impressing falls on the man. Something I do think a lot of young girls who are starved of attention forget, like I did.

I think the fundamental ideology of FDS is (or started out) pretty damn good. Is there really anything better? Most of the [female] critics of FDS are libfem handmaidens that get played over and over again. FDS personally helped me to respect myself a lot as I used to be a woman who would date down severely. A lot of women like myself partook in FemaleLifeStrategy as opposed to dating, which I found to be more helpful. I think FDS is also inspiring in that it encourages women to create their own lives so that they are less dependent on men for sources of happiness. What you do with FDS's advice is your choice. While I was active in FDS I was immersing myself in hobbies, working out, getting my education, working with the goal of bettering myself for myself. I swore off of online dating and men because FDS had shown me how much better off I was improving myself instead of sitting around and swiping on dating apps, hoping to find a diamond in a mound of shit. On the other hand, there are women who are constantly on dating apps, talking about their revolving door of men, which isn't productive in my opinion but still isn't nearly as bad as TRP. TRP, MGTOW, MRAs, and incels are responsible for terror attacks, rapes, and murders so I have to lol when r/purplepilldebate tries to compare the two.
I can confirm as a former mod that some women on FDS are insane, a few are even cow tier. That much should be obvious–people who are among the more active accounts on Reddit, regardless of ideology, are insane. The woman here >>138795 who said that the women are ugly or below average is wrong. Yes there are a few that are not good looking and need a lot of help in the fashion/aesthetics department. But I've seen many women and I'd say that it falls all over the scale of attractiveness. We certainly had more than a few women who were really pretty. The distribution of attractiveness was far higher skewed than all of the men I've seen while lurking the manosphere.
I think FDS ideology is best off if it goes mainstream and reaches normie women and men to change the dating game for women. Men have said that they will only step it up if women require them to. Occasionally we had men (who lurked) that messaged the mods thanking the sub and saying that they want to become HVMs–that bit gave me some hope. One of my biggest issues as a former mod was that the sub went in a completely different direction from advice to memes. And the memes can be kind of cringe at times but on the bright side I have appreciated the gradual pinkpilling of the subreddit.
Ultimately the women who complain about FDS are more pathetic than the women of FDS. I'd rather see a woman who has too much self-confidence than some lowly pickme that wants head pats from MRAs for her "I'm a woman and I hate FDS!" I'm not affiliated with FDS at all whatsoever anymore and I have personal issues with some of the current mods so I have nothing to gain from talking positively of them.
Alright this became very long, I've attached proof of my removal at least but can provide more in case someone accuses me of LARPing as a former mod.
Vindicta's server was full of women with BDD who were obsessed with 'grading' their faces and scoring other women. I find that to be very unhealthy and contrary to the philosophy of FDS which was imo moreso about building your confidence. But technically Vindicta and FDS are not affiliated. One of the mods of that server was a RPW that was trying to spread tradthot ideology and recruit younger girls to RPW.

I’m not trying to argue and correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a lot of FDS advice irrelevant if the person really likes you for who you are?

Maybe this is impossible to know if you exclusively use dating apps or other means of dating in which you’re connecting with strangers. I’ve always dated people who I’m friends with first and have never worried about what people on FDS fear.

Like idk, do you really think someone who genuinely likes you and likes to spend time with you is going to care if you call or plan a date first? I think relationships where people are just allowed to express how they feel without worrying about “tactics” are much healthier.

And I feel like FDS’ cynical nature is causing people to not just let go and enjoy dating, just seeing where it takes you. Is it even fun if you’re constantly thinking about whether or not you’re being played or girlfriend material or whatever?

A few years ago my long term relationship ended. I'm not the type to rebound. I spent the following 8 weeks stuck in a lease so living with my ex still. For those few weekends I went out for coffee with my friends and stayed out all day to try and pass the awkward time left living there. So fucking glad I never went on tinder because at that exact time in my exact town a man managed to meet and rape/torture 3 women over the span of 3/4 days. It was so close to home that I never want to touch one of those apps. He held one of the women hostage in her own home and the ordeal lasted hours.

No. 153123

This post isn't meant to bash you, I want to try providing a genuine answer. Different women have different mindsets and priorities is what it comes down to.

> isn’t a lot of FDS advice irrelevant if the person really likes you for who you are

In most cases I don't think these women have many male friends or acquintances, and are dating men they don't know well. Women on FDS are dating for a specific man who is compatible with them, who often plays a provider role (assuming this is because most want children). A man may care for you but if he doesn't want to settle down and play this role he's wasting their time, these women usually want to get married. You seem somewhat of a romantic, not a bad thing, in history and plenty of cultures marriage is less about that. People change and life stress (like child dying, etc.) can kill love and end relationships. These women value the meaning of men paying for dates, etc. because unless you spend more time with someone there's not much to go off of for a man's character for a while.

> causing people to not just let go and enjoy dating, just seeing where it takes you

Women can't date and engage in this "free love" kind of thought because of patriarchy. In most cases it's men who benefit from relationships more than women, so women don't want to waste their time, energy, and money when they can find a man who is what they want. When women face abuse, it often comes from their male partner. Radical acceptance of dating men (I feel like the subreddit is somewhat pinkpilled) means being aware of male violence and that most men have been raised to take advantage of women's labor.

> Is it even fun if you’re constantly thinking about whether or not you’re being played or girlfriend material or whatever?

No, but it's not fun to not keep it in mind and let yourself get played. A lot of these women come in with dating horror stories or trauma, and cringe at their past selves for a reason.

FDS is a nice subreddit and i really really think women (esp straight) can benefit from it but they should just leave lesbians alone and stop being homophobic pos. users constantly talk about how much they want to be lesbian, how easy it would be if they were a lesbian (lol), how easily they would find a female partner (LOL), there are even women who straight up say that they are researching ways on how to become homosexual (conversion therapy much?) or sharing polilez manifestos between each other so they can weasel they way into lesbian spaces. just fucking stay celibate, no lesbian wants someone who only dates other women because "men are traaaash". their shit is so tonedeaf for fucks sake. and before you come for me - i am aware that threads like these are not daily occurrence there.

I've checked out this subreddit back when r/gendercritical was shilling it (RIP), but I honestly just can't be bothered. If online and blind dating (which they seem to be mainly focusing on) takes this fucking much effort to do, then why even bother? Like someone posting about making a fishing account just to sort out if your date is also into casual flings, all that mental effort could be going into literally anything else.

Internet dating just sucks in general. There's a saying in my country that "a man coming from far lands can say whatever", for the best translation I can suddenly do, it basically just means that there's no one to call out the lies of a new guy traveling through your village or whatever. Word of mouth and tribalism helped a lot to know what kind of man you were marrying, that's why even today it's just so much safer to date friends of your friends, since there's at least a person who can vouch for them not being a serial killer or socially retarded. Online dating just seems to be a way for guys to get easy one-night stands and then even put the blame of women ('if you were more "____", he'd date you').

Don't take this the wrong way, I'm not some tradwife type longing for village life, I just kept thinking about how unsafe and shitty 'tinder' as a cultural phenomenon is. I either meet someone IRL or I'm just staying alone.

Interesting. In my country we have a saying which conveys the same idea, loosely translated it's "if you want good produce pick it from your own garden".

This entire tribal system that fostered trust has disappeared. And we're left with Tinder.

Nayrt but I guess the problem with sayings like those is that they don't fit every situation.

Why are so many FDSers former camgirls/prostitutes?

Also, I can't relate to a lot of their complaints about men. I've never dated a man who tried to mooch off of me financially for example. Is this common in America? I simply don't date unemployed men or men who never pay for anything. This is the most basic red flag, you shouldn't need to be "taught" to observe it. It's obvious. Why on earth were you dating a man who had no job in the first place?

Finally the whole "don't disclose your partner count" thing just seems deceitful to me. If you're promiscuous (which is blatantly what it is covering up for) then find a man who is ok with your promiscuity. Don't find one for whom it is a red line and lie by omission. I'm not and have never been promiscuous myself, and I don't want to date a man who has been like that, so this particular one irks me. If I dated a man who I later found out had over 10 sexual partners but had lied to me about it, I'd be pissed off.

No. 165174

The problem is LVM doesn't actually mean anything. When FDSers have worked themselves into a rage about attractive cads playing multiple women at once, they'll say value != attractiveness, but when it's some screencapped comment from an incel, or an unattractive man who treated a woman badly, then attractiveness becomes a signifier of value again. Likewise for money, if it's a deadbeat, then high income = value. If it's a high-income man who cheated, then they claim income doesn't have anything to do with value.

It's schizophrenic as fuck.

I don't want to sound like a scrote, but when I hear stories like "yeah, my three exs were all abusive" and they list out these traits like "all of them were unemployed, all of them did drugs etc", part of me feels like it was less "manipulation" on the man's part and more just the FDSer walking straight into a series of giant red floodlights because she's fundamentally attracted to that sort of man.

Not excusing shitty men, but there's gotta come an age where you can't claim some dumb bozo who was an unemployed drug addict when you first met him somehow tricked you, when the red flags were there before you'd even started dating….

To me, real abuse and manipulation is where the guy is really normal and well put together on the outside, but turns into a psychopath months into the relationship. Those are the women I really feel sorry for and wish I could help. Not raccoons who continuously go rooting around in trash.

No. 165202

I know this is lolcow and shitting on other women is kind of the point, but in the interest of those reading things like this and further blaming themselves rather than abusive scrotes…

We're literally taught from a young age that Prince Charming starts out as an ugly frog or deranged beast. In popular media we're told that it's the women who stood by their men when they were down on their luck, poor, even criminals, and saw his "potential" and the good person within who are the ones truly deserving of love. To date someone successful who has their shit together is easy and nothing to be admired (and of course doesn't preclude you from experiencing abuse, in fact makes it harder for you ever to be believed because the rest of the world sees them as upstanding members of society and your abuse takes place in private). We're told to be empathetic towards men because "boys will be boys," they mature more slowly than us (because society caters to them and they don't need to) and to give them the benefit of the doubt and be understanding, while men barely even have to think of us as human.

So yeah, not dating guys who are poor and unemployed is a good first step, yet even that advice is radical to a lot of women who have been bludgeoned with the thought that they should "give a guy a chance" and that it's her duty to help mold garbage into some semblance of a functional human. To say women shouldn't date men who are abusers is even more ridiculous and condescending because the vast majority of abusers don't start out as abusive; they lure you in by acting charming and kind and seem to be "better than other guys" because duh, that's how the fucking con works. Then when he turns into Mr. Hyde the woman spends the rest of the relationship blaming herself because he was so fantastic and amazing to start, surely the only defining factor that changed was her presence, so she has to keep working to make him happy and awesome like he used to be because it's all her fault. Abuse is almost always a lot more insidious and sneaky than a guy out and out physically beating a woman during their first meeting, and the fact you don't realize that speaks volumes, so save the holier than thou oversimplification and stop victim blaming.

I never believed that. I thought "prince charming" came from a man who was outwardly charming and kind and had a good heart. Not someone who dealt drugs and had issues with substance abuse.

No. 165211

In my experience, these outwardly bad traits (drug addiction, dealing, violence, lack of any job etc) aren't actually negatives from the outset anyway. A lot of really damaged women will see these traits as attractive/arousing. Just so long as the violence and rage is being directed against others, then it's all good. Remember that tons of these girls are driven by pornified desires for sexual masochism too, so they purposefully seek out really awful, abusive, dysfunctional men.

I saw this time and again at art school. Girls who would fall for the moody troubled art boy. Thing is, that guy was never "charming", he was always a rude, unpleasant dick who openly talked about using women then tossing them aside, he openly talked about his substance abuse issues, it was an open fact that he'd scream at and even physically abuse his exs.

After a certain point you've got to ask yourself: are these traits that signify blatant low value not what are attracting these low value women in the first place?

But this is where we diverge I think, your point is that the majority of these cases involve a man concealing these things from her expertly from the outset. In my experience at art school the girls get involved knowing this full well.

>there's something wrong with them
Okay. So I take it you also blame people with cancer for not trying harder to push past chemo and live their lives to the fullest and get out more? If not, why is it okay to blame women who are clearly struggling with cognitive delusions, likely because they were repeatedly pushed to accept poor boundaries and/or went through former abuse? Why is one of these scenarios accepted as "out of their control" but people/society at large telling a woman to accept less than minimal effort from scrotes until they believe it's okay her fault? That's cool you didn't have the sort of negative beliefs I described pushed on you, but a lot of women have.

Again, they believe they can and should change men like that because society (and men themselves) tell us that's what a good woman does. Is it a crazy, lost cause? Sure. But that's not what they've been conditioned to believe and a handful of people telling her she's wrong for doing something she's been trained to do all her life isn't going to make a difference overnight.

>A lot of really damaged women will see these traits as attractive/arousing.
Great, so we agree a woman accepting these attributes is "really damaged." But fuck her and let's describe her as an inhuman creature scrounging among trash because she's been hurt and brainwashed to this extent, I guess? A woman so hurt that she tried to fix/help/support a shitty man like she's been told and gotten punished for it isn't "real" abuse but a woman who was deceived by a guy who seemed upstanding from the outside deserves support. That's an odd dichotomy you've got going on where you have the least amount of sympathy for the women you freely admit have been damaged the most.

"Society" doesn't tell women this. I don't know what kinda family you grew up in but my dad was always really clear to avoid men who have anything to do with drugs. Full stop. Most normal people think drug addicts are losers and would probably be happy with drug dealers being summarily shot. I'm not sure where you're getting this idea all of society is telling women to date abusive narcissistic drug addicted unemployed bums. I was told the complete opposite by just about everyone close to me.

this, even my negligent parents would tell me not to date guys who don't work, have no savings, do drugs, want casual sex, etc
what kind of headspace do you need to be in to date men that are literally bottom of the barrel??? though lots of young people do drugs casually now, even my friends dabble, so i can see a scrote being able to lie about the extent of their use. but not having a job and education is a huge red flag

No. 165232

I don’t really feel like society tells them they “should” fix a man, tbh. Also this post is so melodramatic, all the anons were stating is that a lot of these girls have more agency in these scenarios than they will accept. When a guy is an outright asshole, misogynist and abuser- it does seem like a lot of women, even ones from normal backgrounds, will still like them! Not because they’re damaged, but because they genuinely think they are better than other women and are the speshul one who’s going to change him. Dating someone who is openly an asshole to the people around them is on some level, you’re own doing.

No. 165235

I understand and have sympathy when the guy is genuinely playing a Jekyll and Hyde situation and is smart enough to do it, there are some very intelligent men who pull this off very well: good jobs, smart looking, polite, but turn into raging fucking psychopaths after 6 months into a relationship behind closed doors. The women who get involved with those men are the ones I'll reserve my sympathy for. However, and as an example, a grown woman dating a guy like Sam Hyde and then turning around and claiming she "didn't know how abusive he could be" or that he "was charming at first", yeah… No thanks. I don't buy that bullshit for a second.

For record, the same shit applies to men. I have a couple of male channer friends who got involved with the same art hoe girl they met on /soc/ who ended up breaking their hearts. Entirely their own fault. They knew what they were getting into and they knew what kind of girl she was from the outset.

Few men are like this and even fewer women consistently date men like this, so wtf is the point of this argument?

Abusers are often very charismatic, manipulative and have good reputations, they aren't walking red flags like a jobless drug addict is. Men will lie and fake and put their best face forward right up until he's got a woman reliant on him, and then they're fucked.

No. 165241

Not to sperg about media, but that is not what the Beauty and the Beast trope is. I've only see the two Disney films, and the whole point is that the Beast ISN'T a bad person, he pushes people away but he's capable of kindness and it's only when he shows Belle that kindness that she gives him a chance. She doesn't change him. There is very few media examples I can think of where a woman changes a man into her prince charming.

There is also a world of difference between "childhood story about a rich handsome prince" and "unemployed abusive drug addicted porn watching loser".

We don't need to blame disney movies or the prince charming trope. The general society we live in that values women on their ability to find and keep a man is to blame, as well as the sunk cost fallacy. A woman might be lonely and hook up with a loser just out of desperation, not intending that it will last a long time, but 5 years pass and she is still with him because she never had energy to date around and look for other prospects, and she doesn't want to go through the trouble of going out there and starting the dating process all over again. We stop valuing women based on how men are attracted to them (farmers are still guilty of this, look at how many comments will be made about cows along the lines of "how can a man be attracted to her gross fridge body?" "she's so ugly, how does she have a man?") and we stop seeing so many women settle for assholes.

No. 165267

lmao either you've never read FDS or you have no idea what PUA involves, because PUA is about tricking and manipulating reluctant women into sex. The idea that women would ever need pickup artistry is delusional. It's assumed everyone on FDS has plenty of options and no need to seek men out, just filter through the shitty ones who approach us. The only advice for getting a high quality guy is to improve yourself to ensure you're their equal and carefully choose one, not persuade them to fuck you through calculated PUA moves.

It also fully promotes being single if that's what you prefer, so I don't see the problem?

This is where FDS falls apart for me. It's objectively not true that I have plenty of options. I keep hoping the queen cheerleading will kick in and I will love myself even though men don't.

No. 165393

Having an exit plan in any relationship is a good idea. I know a lot of women who have become way too dependent on their boyfriend/husband and got screwed when the relationship went south.

No. 165457

the problem with FDS is that they’re scarcely interested in examining /why/ they’ve allowed themselves to be taken advantage by men over and over again. therapy would be a huge asset to many of these women.

and sure, society may be to blame in some ways…but there are millions of women in happy, healthy relationships who have never needed (and will never need) FDS. following the source of their low self esteem (childhood abuse, emotional neglect, bullying, etc) would be infinitely more beneficial in the long run than made up rules like “wait three months to have sex,” or “require him to buy you gifts.” generally speaking, emotionally healthy people attract emotionally healthy people (both friendship-wise and relationship-wise.) and emotionally unhealthy people tend to repel emotionally healthy people. examining their past via therapy and improving their self esteem would vastly reduce their chances of ending up with a “low value” man.

if you’ve ever watched 90 Day Fiancé, a lot of FDSers remind me of Darcey. she has a very strong “girl boss, take no shit” attitude but continually chases men who can’t or won’t give her what she wants. and when she does get a emotionally healthy, laidback guy, her low self esteem and generally insecurity swoops in to sabotage the relationship. extended therapy would do her so much good.

Can someone link to some posts where OP managed to find a better man that's up to FDS standards? Do they even exist? So far I've only seem stories about people dumping their current bfs after FDS "made them realise" how much of a loser their bfs were.

No. 165481

They talk about that shit literally all the time… discussions about self esteem, boundaries and mental health are near constant, being emotionally healthy is always part of the expectation to 'level up' and having high self worth is acknowledged as the number 1 way to ensure you don't end up with a shitty man. Expecting a dude to pay for dates and waiting for commitment before sex is rarely discussed in depth because they're the most basic rules everyone knows and are just external expressions of healthy self esteem.

I seriously feel like I'm being gaslighted when I read anon's opinions about FDS because it's so dramatically, absurdly different to the posts I read on a daily basis. I don't even date, I read FDS because I find it encouraging and uplifting to see a large community of women who are all about growth, self respect and not letting men treat you like shit or bring you down. The opinions on there rarely differ from what I usually see on /g/ and /ot/, most of the advice re relationships is exactly the same. Do people here just read the wiki and jump to conclusions without paying attention to the posts?

No. 165490

FDS isn't a hive mind either, and the post quality can differ from week to week, so it depends on when anons visited it. When I first looked at it, it was all shit instragram screencaps about "queen shit" and discussions about loser exes. Also the wiki IS supposed to give the essence of a sub, and if it's out of touch, it should be on the moderators to update it.

There's simply a huge spectrum of being picky ranging from the deepest "pickmeisha" mentality to the FDS alpha female who dumps her boyfriend the moment he has a rough month in his life, which are unhealthy extremes, but some women still fall into them. Except it's still better to be the latter than the first, because at least you're not being taken advantage of.

No. 165500

i think what i'm talking about is kinda different. i definitely see posts that are like "having high self esteem is key," etc but IMO that's putting the cart before the horse (so to speak). before you get high self esteem you have to go back and analyze why you had low self esteem in the first place.

like i said, often childhood bullying/emotional neglect/etc is the cause and you can't truly become emotionally healthy until you address that. emotional health is more than thinking you're best, in fact the high self esteem you're talking about ("i'm a queen" self esteem) is derived from the marina and the diamonds "oh no" complex… ("i think that i'm the worst/so i always act like i'm the best")

like i said, emotionally healthy people will naturally be repelled by emotionally unhealthy people. they won't post screenshots online of them "taking down" some LVM or blocking a guy or the other stuff you see FDSers do sometimes.

i'm sure a lot of FDSers are great girls with unfortunate pasts and i just wish there'd be more focus on actual therapy.

to be honest FDS is putting the cart before the horse at its core, like why try to level up so you can date, when you should level up regardless so you can live a good life? kind of like how red pill dudes think they need to emulate chad to get a gf. not saying that FDS is even comparable to braindead scrote communities that condone abuse and constantly play victim, btw. girls on FDS at least take matters into their own hands in a healthy way, but i think pining for the holy grail HVM can really undermine the positives of being in such a community. that said i'm glad FDS exists, would rather have women be extremely picky than be pickmes

No. 165557

I think it’s just natural for most people at any point in life (after puberty) to want companionship, even when they’re not ready for it. There really aren’t general “life advice” subreddits besides things like Life Protips. Most people want to date and look for advice online.

You obviously don’t need to “level up” just for some guy, but having a good career and a good life before getting into a relationship is so important. I think putting it in the context of relationships is fine because it reminds young women they don’t have to rush into anything.

No. 165586

i would consider r/askwomen a life advice subreddit and when i checked it last (admittedly a couple months ago) their advice was supportive and the community seemed nice without all the extra “why are you going out with this LVM who asked you out for a coffee” spiels

tbh i’m in the minority but personally i always, always, prefer a coffee date if i’m meeting a guy via tinder or some other dating app (which seems to be how a lot of FDSers meet guys).

it’s way easier to bail if we’re just getting coffee and the guy is weird. getting dinner with a guy that’s (inevitably) uglier IRL than i thought he’d be and usually not how they’ve portrayed themselves is so disappointing but bailing mid-dinner is way harder.

if we already know each other (like we met through work or something) and know we’re both into each other, yeah i agree that a coffee date is shitty :/ context is important.

No. 165587

FDS does say you should level up for your own happiness, not for men. Part of its optics problem is that it is the only remaining facet of radical feminist thought on Reddit. The rest was purged. It's not an accident that the only type of female empowerment Reddit tolerates is the kind that results in men having relationships.

No. 165589

I prefer coffee dates because I really like coffee and restaurants give me anxiety tbh. If the "cheapness" of coffee dates is an issue for you ladies, just make him buy you the fanciest coffee and pastry they have. Don't let him take you to Starbucks. A date at a fancy coffeeshop is just as good as a date at a restaurant imo.

No. 165591

Is it really a sin to split the bill on the first few dates? I hate letting guys pay. Especially someone I just met. Even if he offers to pay I insist on splitting because I don't. want. his. money. The idea of accepting the money of a man I barely know disgusts me.

I guess this means I have no self-worth and I let men take advantage of me? But seriously, it's sus to me if a guy doesn't offer to pay but even if he does I usually insist on splitting… and if he doesn't let me do that I take that as a red flag that he doesn't respect my choices. Am I wrong? Anyone else?

No. 165593

Do what feels right to you! My bf can pay for me if he wants to, but I'd feel very uncomfortable if a random date insisted to do so, I've used to always insist on splitting too.

No. 165598

for me it’s like this

guy i don’t know —> coffee date in a very public area away from my home, if he’s attractive IRL i let him pay. if he’s not attractive, i pay for my own drink, stay polite but end the date after i finish my coffee.

guy i already know —> restaurant date and then coffee afterwards, i expect him to pay but i’ll still offer to split just to be polite. if we go on a second date i’ll pay for that meal. i’ll expect him to pay for the meal after that, then i’ll pay for the next one…and so on.

No. 165603

I completely agree with you, FDS made me realize that society is pushing that women are not "complete" without a man and that there is nothing wrong with willingly being single. Society also shames the fuck out of women who have standards, we are thrown so many labels and insults just for having high standards. FDS made me realize there is absolutely nothing wrong with women having high standards and that it is OUR choice.

i think this is partially influenced by background. parents that admire/value high education will usually push their daughters to get a guy that has at least a masters degree if not a phd and is financially comfortable. my experience isn’t everyone’s of course, but my parents would definitely judge me hard if i ended up with a guy socially or physically below me.

if i had an overweight bf/bf without at least a bachelors/bf without a good job/a socially awkward bf/etc i would never hear the end of it. i think a lot of parents are like that and friends too (tbf). not saying your experience isn’t real, but socially at least i’ve never been encouraged to settle for less. i think that must be part of the reason i find FDS kinda odd. might just be me though.

So everything about vindicta is just nuts. There's an unhealthy obsession with prioritizing looks above everything else. Everyone there is largely working in retail or non skilled work and planning to save only to blow it all on plastic surgery.

Also! Another thing that creeps me out are all the koreaboos there. Occasionally there are a few on FDS too but vindicta is koreaboos all the way down. Why the fuck are there so many koreaboos?! Literal 20 somethings with names like "jaehyungsgf", what the heck is wrong with these people? You're in your 20s with no skilled job, no real education, no money, and your plan is to get tons of plastic surgery and go to Korea to do… What exactly? Marry a "HV" man? I wanna believe these are just dumb kids but on the discord most of them seem to average out at 24 or so. Do they know nothing about how misogynist South Korea is? Nth room? Molka hidden cams everywhere? Abuse of Southeast Asian mail order brides? Rapist idols who continue to go unpunished? Not to mention that white women are seen as sluts over there. How are they this delusional? I still like some k dramas but Korean men on average aren't any better than others.

Btw I don't understand the obsession with getting a wealthy man unless you're also financially successful yourself. If you're not you're basically symbiotically tying yourself to them and giving your husband enormous leverage over you. Think about not even having your own money to buy presents for your own family at Christmas lol. How can you live like this?

Finally, what's wrong with dating people on your level? If you're an average looking clerical worker don't expect a millionaire. Most of FDS and vindicta are low income anyway from what I've seen. Exact equivalent of incels claiming a really attractive actress is "average". For all the advocacy of self improvement my time lurking in these spaces has taught me that they're dumpster fires of mental health issues and that nobody ever really improves as a result of being there long term.

For the same reason certain type of men become obsessed with Japanese girls. It’s a cope.

Women that become obsessed with having Korean boyfriends are almost always women who are rejected by men in their own country. Mentally, they can maintain self-esteem by fantasying that somewhere in the world (in this case, Korea) they’d be desirable and sought-after…it’s 100% a coping mechanism

Bella Hadid has had one of the most successful before and afters I’ve ever seen and she’s been ridiculed nonstop, called a horse face, etc since she got her surgeries done. And she was a normal looking girl before, so it still wasn’t a “I went from a 3 to a 7.5” transformation

She wasn’t even ugly before. Most of these women are or were totally normal looking. She even admitted in her post that she lost a ton of weight, which probably substantially changed both what she looked like and how people treated her.

Most people don’t look like models, and even after surgery don’t look like models. Bella Hadid gets a crazy amount of hate and is ridiculed as a “horse face” (gag) even though she objectively leveled up.

And as that girl mentioned in her post, she can’t even tell people she had surgery because it basically invalidates her “pretty privilege.” People will judge her or consider her less beautiful, which only further destroys their self esteem.

Vindicta is extreme and OTT but it's very 'dead dove, do not eat', they know they are going way further than normal, secure people would. It's a calculated attempt to capitalize on beauty standards that may be ridiculous and unfair, but still result in tangible advantages throughout life. I'm pretty sure it was started by self declared femcels who preferred autistic, objective standards for beauty because it's easier for them to evaluate/improve their appearance that way.

i'm pretty average but considered cute so i'd say i'm like 5.5-6.

sis, that is the bare minimum, not 'high value behaviour'. just because many men are horrible, doesn't mean your standards should be low as hell. you would not even befriend someone who treats you like shit, why are yall worshipping men that do 1/10th of what a woman is expected to put into any relationship.

No. 166156

Obviously that is simplified, a short post isn't going into excessive detail about what good treatment in a relationship specifically involves. The point is that people assume HV = high status, rich and handsome, and that's not true. It's specifically referring to his decency as a partner and a person.

But yes, FDS would be the first to admit the bar is in hell for men. A big part of it is ensuring women have the bare minimum for standards. And yet you have anons like >>166096 who think she doesn't deserve even the bare minimum because of her looks.

To add another screenshot, he was supposedly a "HVM"; she held onto him for almost a year, I heard that they only broke up fairly recently.

She also has an obsession with the 48 laws of power and routinely lies to her other mods, to users and compromises their privacy. She also steals content, almost none of what she posts which seems to have any substance is her own work, but is something she copy pasted onto reddit from one of the many servers she runs. Which would be fine, if she wasn't planning on literally creating a physical book and selling it, thus profiting off of other users while claiming it as her own work. It's not like the posts are even that good, but it's still just a scumbag move.
She has also let an AGP in one of her servers run wild and harass women for bikini pictures. They just excused the fact that he hadn't verified at all, except with porny pics and claiming that he can't download discord on his phone and all his possible microphones are broken.
She also airs all her dirty laundry and literally lets everyone on discord listen to her arguments. Well at least when she was still with her ex. I wasn't present there personally, because I've never been in the server myself, but I've heard it from people who have been in the server and from callout posts on reddit (pic related). I don't care if she hurt a scrotes feelings, but it's a bit cow-like to let everyone listen to your arguments via vc.

FDS is about rejecting codependency, in part by building one's own financial security before looking for a boyfriend.

No. 166508

WRONG. Every day there's a thread that implicitly or explicitly ties what a man spends on you to his intrinsic worth. Most recently it was some random kpoop star spending $100k on an engagement ring for his Eastern European mail order bride being described as high value ("if he cares about you he'll spend a lot of money on you"). This is why a lot of FDSers are koreaboos too, because the dating culture over there is about lavishing gifts on a woman. That's the entire reason Ava, one of the FDS mods, was dating a wealthy Indian she self admittedly wasn't attracted to.

FDS is a shitshow that changed their definition of a HVM the moment it's revealed he invariably cheats with prostitutes or used his money as a weapon against her during arguments.

No. 166531

I think there is an inability by some anons to separate FDS practioners from the actual strategy. Nobody's defending the batshit women who LARP as a boss bitch to cover up their emotional insecurity and aspire to be the glorified "feminist" sugar baby of a Korean idol. They're crazy. They do that craziness in the name of FDS, despite FDS calling for the exact opposite behaviour, and suredly muck up the community with their nonsense. Even so, none of that negates FDS' genuinely good principles. For example: improving one's self esteem, learning how to be single, and only investing in men who are worth the time and resources. I hate to pull such a lame comparison, but just because the crusades sucked doesn't mean we should throw out The Ten Commandments.

No. 166532

Ava is more than a FDS practitioner, she started the whole damn thing. And the other co-founder, OG, is a self declared/admitted femcel who thinks "pretty privilege" is a bigger problem than misogyny. Ava doesn't practice what she preaches and she changes the guidelines based on what she's currently doing in her life. It also doesn't help that the average person who posts on FDS is a massive stan of hers and will suck up to her, even though she cannot reply or post anywhere without first consulting The 48 Laws of Power. So nobody in there even questions the random changes and if you do or you talk about it anywhere on reddit, you risk getting banned anyway apparently. OG spends most of her day refreshing, looking for mentions of FDS.
FDS is Ava's brand and she's looking to make money off of it in the future (by selling merch, books etc.), it's not the second coming of feminism for straight women.

No. 166608

FDS is literally the book “He’s Just Not That Into You,” except they’ve replaced the “He’s just not that into you” motto with “He’s low value.”

Which is silly, again, because the reason most of these guys mistreat these women is because they’re just not that into them. It sucks and feels shitty and it’s a very hard pill to swallow, but women regularly do the same thing to men they’re only semi into.

For example, I’ve never met a girl who’s crazy about a guy but regularly ignores his text messages, forgets his birthday, cancels plans with him, etc. But I definitely have friends that are hooking up with a guy and are kinda into them…but will actively ignore their texts, don’t want to commit, spend non-sexual time with them, etc.

It sucks and it hurts and it’s hard to accept but that really is what’s usually happening.

No. 166612

It's the same thing, though. Anyone who treats people like this is an asshole, no matter the reason. Your friends are assholes.

No. 166614

The fundamental problem here I see is when people feel they can do better. Nobody is willing to settle. And let's be honest, settling means accepting you're probably not good looking enough to deserve a tiny slim blonde with big tits if you're a man, or a 6'4 muscular Viking if you're a woman.

Average looking people's physical standards are just unreal. I get the feeling a lot of the milky ex bf stories you read on FDS about how he was unemployed for two years, smoked weed every day etc are because they tried to settle down with the best looking man they possibly could and ignored all his other bad traits. So yes, the bar is low, very low, but FDSers themselves are partly to blame for that by being shallow.

No. 166615

They’re ex-friends, to be clear. And I agree it’s shitty behavior.

IMO It’s not the same thing though. A lot of LV guys (and girls) will suddenly become HV when they’re with someone they’re crazy about. And a lot of HV men (or women) will become LV once they’re no longer interested in their partner/spouse or realize that they’re not actually compatible long term.

Ask the people around you that are married. Both men and women will usually say the same thing: “The first five/ten years were great, but now they’re like a totally different person.” Most people in long term relationships become LV to some extent. There are definitely couples that remain HV but they’re generally the exception, and they’re usually the ones still madly in love.

No. 166616

They’re not willing to settle because they’re not that into them. I’ve been in love and the idea of whether I was settling or not never once crossed my mind. When I lost interest in them though, I definitely started feeling like I could do better. That’s just how it goes.

No. 166621

How can I have a conversation with my boyfriend about him looking at other girls on Instagram/ watching porn?
A couple of weeks ago, I told him that I only found him attractive and did not think of other men in a sexual way. He assured me that it was okay if I did. I asked why he kept reiterating that it would be okay if I looked at other guys sexually and if it was bc he looked at other girls. He said yes, but that’s just how Instagram is. I literally started bawling. I felt humiliated, but above all I felt disgusting and unattractive. I know that I do not have the looks to compete with other woman. I laid with my face buried in his chest crying and telling him that I felt ugly. He asked to talk about it. I shut it down bc I don’t like having emotionally charged conversations. The next time we hung out he brought it up again and asked if it was okay if he jerks off to porn. I said it was fine I just didn’t want to know about it, but it’s not fine with me. I just don’t want to come off as overbearing and controlling.I thought I could be okay with it, but today I went through his phone and saw his Instagram explore page. It made me feel so disgusted. I don’t want him to look at other girls anymore. Why am I not enough for him? I just wish that I was pretty then he wouldn’t feel the need to look at other girls,

No. 166635

The only way you'll feel better is if you give him an ultimatum or even straight up attempt to break up with him. He knows you have low self esteem but he doesn't know you have high enough self worth to not be put down by a coomer.

I know The Red Pill isn't the best comparison since it's basically a rape-manual, but it was also often defended by saying "but it has some good parts!". Yeah, it tells men to get buff, not to sit in their rooms and wash their ass, but it gets crazy and cultish pretty fast. And even FDS gets to a point where "oh, losing friends because they find your sudden shift of personality and being demeaning to them, acting enlightened constantly because you found a subreddit is A-OK".
Honestly, for every "new method" or "change of mentality" self-help movement the golden rule is just to read, never get 0 to 100 into it, and never ever engage with the community formed around it.

Looking in particular is a compulsion that is embedded on the mammalian level. People in general and men in particular (might be testosterone/estrogen up/down regulated) have a prebaked mechanism of immediately looking at the face and genitals to identify who they're dealing with, which is extra important for social animals. There were studies done, like clockwork most people did the same eye motions across photos. Foundation for behaviors like these are not individually developed, a man might be fully committed upstairs but he's still prodded by inbuilt mechanisms to consider other mates, since propagation of genes is the only real benchmark for trait selection and that impulse obv will get you ahead in the game. Welcome to monke, I guess.

In general men have a different sexuality (like triggers and thresholds for arousal being different) than you and as a result it interfaces with emotion differently.Though seeking exposure to coomer/consoomer content out on instagram is another thing. These apps are made to fry peoples' brains with sexual and status displays by using these simple mechanisms and keep them hooked. There's nothing "normal" in instagram hacking your mid and hindbrain.

There are two negative core emotions, pain and fear. What I’m hearing is that you’re afraid you’ll lose your boyfriend to a “better” woman. I would explore the root of that fear to better understand how to move forward. A lot of people will say “just break up,” but if your insecurity is based on some past event (bullying, for example), you’ll find it bubbling up again and again regardless of who you date.

A skilled therapist can help you find the root of your insecurity. If you don’t have access to a therapist, some very deep and painful self reflection might lend you some answers. Were your parents emotionally unavailable/neglectful? Were you constantly compared to your more successful friends/family members? Were you bullied? Etc

Come back around to this BF question once you understand yourself a little better. Then you’ll be able to answer these questions: Does it bother you because you feel like it’s violating your relationship boundaries? Does it bother you simply because it makes you feel insecure about your looks? Does it bother you because it makes you feel unloved? Does it bother you because you feel like it’s disrespectful? Etc

Goddamn the best advice you’ve gotten so far is from >>166635 but I say just skip to the part where you break up because trying to convince a coomer to give up porn isn’t worth the effort, especially when he’s more likely to agree then just watch it in secret anyway. Your time would be better spent finding a man who wasn’t addicted in the first place. Believe it or not there actually are men who feel the same way you do and prefer appreciating/interacting with their partner over looking at porn, but it’s tough to fully grasp that when you’re living in a bubble where the primary guy in your life is a dipshit. You sound young so please take it from someone who likely has more life experience: If someone makes you feel bad about yourself, they’re not worth your time and certainly not worth being your partner.

>I just wish that I was pretty then he wouldn’t feel the need to look at other girls

This is so sad and I can promise you that it has nothing to do with your looks. There are men with partners who are literal supermodels who still cheat on them and watch porn. On the other hand there are men with partners who would be considered average by the majority of the population but because they love their girlfriend’s personality they would never even dream of another person. It has everything to do with the (lack of) quality of the man and nothing to do with the woman not being “pretty enough.” That is a misogynistic trap, a red herring that tells us if we just put in more effort then somehow a piece of shit will transmute into gold. But no, alchemy is pseudoscience and even a woman being near flawless physically is still no remedy for a coomer’s brain rot.

No. 166655

I agree with the other anons encouraging a breakup, but >>166642 is right, too. You owe it to yourself and your future partners to sort out your insecurities. Ditch the coomer and figure out why you're desperate to hold onto such a worthless male in the first place so that it never happens again.

>they are obsessed with men. Every single post is about them.
I mean, it is called female "dating" strategy. Why is it wrong for them to focus on a niche many women are interested in? It's a common, basic human desire to crave intimacy and partnership in life. Beyond that, saying they only post about men is patently untrue. There are a lot of posts that actively advocate for women to stay single and just live their best lives without a scrote dragging them down. One of the main concepts frequently pushed is, "If you come across a man who adds immense value to your life then cool, but if that doesn't happen you can still be super happy and fulfilled without a relationship." I don't see how that's promoting a male fan club. Also picrel was literally posted 2 days ago but go off saying they don't care about women damaged by the porn industry.

Are they becoming more radical or is it just filled with r/gc refugees who think they are peaking other r/gc refugees? I don't think anyone has a problem with the concept of a female dating sub. If you look past the surface though, you will know that FDS isn't benign, considering it is literally based on r/trufemcels and r/vindicta beliefs and the mods are up to no good. Saying they are against BDSM, porn and prostitution one moment and giving tips on how to start sugaring/stripping the next. All while larping as a wannabe narcissist and desperate to make money off of the 'brand'. Part of becoming a 'HVW' to land yourself a 'HVM' is a quick trip to r/vindicta for tips on 'hardmaxxing'.
I think a lot of women feel personally attacked when anyone criticizes the FDS brand, (yes a brand, no it's not your fun cozy community) because that is how they found out about radical feminism and the like, but if you've actually looked past the surface, you would know how much of a shit show it is.
Like >>166720 says, the mods and the core members aren't feminist in the slightest. They worry mainly about pretty privilege and competing with other women. Why? Because it was never fucking meant as a feminist sub and people who moved to r/gc eventually are desperately coping to retcon it to be that way and the mods are fucking loving it. Because they can sell liberal "feminism" 2.0 with coping radfems making it seem more radical than it is, all the while the mods encourage adolescents to do sugaring and stripping behind the more 'sensitive' members' backs.

If you just enjoy the memes, go right ahead, but please stop ass kissing this femcel/sugarbaby wannabe 'brand'. Just see what happens if you would even try to make your own kind of version of a female dating sub. Some have tried, to have something without all the femcel and latent pro-sexwork bs. The mods will mass report you for stepping on their turf and ban anyone who even posts on subs like that. They spend all day refreshing for any mentions of FDS.

Can you link me to a single post within the last several months that idealizes sugaring and stripping in the sub? Because I only see posts against those things.

>I think a lot of women feel personally attacked when anyone criticizes the FDS brand… because that is how they found out about radical feminism and the like, but if you've actually looked past the surface, you would know how much of a shit show it is.

So your issue is that FDS is helping to peak normies despite the fact that the creators were prostitutes or whatever? Isn’t that a great thing then, that it’s helping women recognize their worth despite the fact it had shady origins? I really don’t see the problem with that if 99% of the people that browse the sub aren’t going to know or care about the founders. Plus it’s not like they’re getting fat stacks from a free online community.

> If you just enjoy the memes, go right ahead, but please stop ass kissing this femcel/sugarbaby wannabe 'brand'.

I don’t know why you’re so upset I posted a picture and comments recognizing women’s oppression and making fun of abusive scrotes, in a thread dedicated to this particular sub. If the founders are pickmes then all the more reason for me to ignore them and instead focus on the positive community they inadvertently fostered. My posts had nothing to do with “ass kissing” a brand and everything to do with appreciating comments from women over men’s fuckery.

NTA but I sometimes scroll past the top posts of the sub and there are certainly some "sugaring" type posts about the men needing to spend on the jewellery and the looks of his woman amongst posts of "self-care is important, get yourself a ring for your own money". And the whole "women are a prize" narrative where men need to give financial support instead of focusing on positive traits to look for in a man. The whole subreddit suffers from dissociative identity disorder.
But it's not like lolcow is better, one anon posted making fun of a chick just because she's fat and bought a car and doesn't look like those dolled up sugarbabes that give dating tips on tiktok.

She's spending her time and money in a way that's meaningful and valuable to her.

>there are certainly some "sugaring" type posts about the men needing to spend on the jewellery and the looks of his woman
I suppose. I'm not against criticism of the sub, and I do think that expecting a ton of expensive gifts early on is silly. That's love bombing, which is just as bad as a financial leech, and members do warn against that as well. I think most of the women are just advocating that you see some indication the man isn't a stingy hobo. Being able to afford a decent dinner if you're interested in a woman and giving gifts that are actually good quality (once you're in the relationship) I don't see as gold digging so much as proof the guy is a considerate partner. I've always done things like that for men I was in relationships with and got little effort back, so personally I simply see it as wanting someone who offers the same thoughtfulness I do. Though I agree a man shouldn't be able to "buy" you and that spending a lot of money isn't indicative of being a good person.

Yeah I thought this was pretty mean-spirited, but hey it's LC. I think posts like that are sweet and it makes me happy to see women valuing and doing things for themselves. Most men certainly won't and you shouldn't wait around for a guy to take care of you if you want a happy and fulfilling life.

No. 168230

I don’t think this is sugaring, I’ve definitely found most decent guys want to buy presents for the woman they’re dating (if they’re serious about her). There’s a difference between dating someone who buys you nice, thoughtful gifts and someone who’s just trying to buy your attention. It’s pretty easy to tell the difference.

Bahahah anon I'm late but I think the reason there's kboos is because kpop instills a lot of lookism in impressionable girls/women. Kpop fans get hyperfixated on their looks bc all of these idols are changing their faces and starving themselves to fit a perfect mold which they start to deem important themselves since it's so prevalent in kpop.
Personally I was into Vindicta because I just wanted to look better for myself with more thorough advice of what to do to improve mys looks than the typical "girl you're beautiful you don't need to change anything". I find that a lot of women there also have better aesthetics than some other subreddits but that's just me.

I genuinely think the mod only posted it to keep Reddit from giving them the banhammer.

You're talking about the 'no racism, homophobia, transphobia' post right? Because I absolutely agree. Other subs with stickies like that get in their feelings about defending trannies and ~TWAW~, FDS has the bare minimum, totally neutral 'we must abide by reddit rules' stock response about it kek.

I do believe they're against racism and homophobia, they call men and even women out on it all the time… but they never do for transphobia. FDS being radfem/terf aligned is bit of an unwritten rule/open secret and I think everyone understands how subtle you have to be about it to avoid getting banned on reddit. It's pro women and not pro scrot so no doubt mods are looking for any excuse at all to delete it.

No. 171444

Eh I vaguely recall this post and if I’m remembering right her point was just that she felt better hiding her body from men’s examination. There was a bit of everything in the comments from “wearing hijab definitely doesn’t make you immune to male scrutiny” to “I feel like this is repressive and wouldn’t see it the same way you do” but in the end she was only talking about her own experience and not recommending women wholesale adopt it. I’m definitely on the disagree side but in a sense I don’t see how using a hijab to prevent closer examination from scrotes is much different than wearing really baggy clothes or even going the genderspecial enby uwu route as in the end they’re all potentially ways women attempt to escape objectification. She felt this worked for her and since it wasn’t “omg you all must wear hijab now too” I didn’t find it too obnoxious.

No. 171445

>I don’t see how using a hijab to prevent closer examination from scrotes is much different than wearing really baggy clothes
I agree with this. Islam is misogynistic af and being forced to wear a hijab is obviously oppressive, but standards for modesty when it comes to clothes are so arbitrary. What makes a woman feel too exposed or sexualized in front of men will depend totally on the period, country, culture, current trends, her personality, etc and is generally just a response to the way men around her behave. In some women's case that's gonna mean feeling more comfortable in a hijab, in some it's gonna be hiding your ankles, in others it's just avoiding super skimpy tight stuff. I can't begrudge any woman wanting to hide their body from men for their own peace of mind.

If some guy goes on about how first dates must be 50-50 I just hear that he's a slut now. Like how many dates are you going on for an extra meal to become a financial burden? They are agreeing to date everyone and anyone with no preselection, hoping that they get to fuck, trying to minmax it financially. Also an indicator of how shit they are in bed, since 95% of casual straight sex is dogshit and men don't try to impress women to keep coming back when they play the minmax-Tinder-game.

There's literally no reason to do it.

Most men are obsessed with the thought of anal because it's a taboo fetish and power play which is just fucking selfish because it typically does nothing at all for the woman (if you're one of those magical handmaidens who enjoys it then great, but you are definitely a minority) and if anything it ends up hurting. If anyone is receiving anal it should be the man anyway, considering he has a prostate which can actually be stimulating for him

Its taken as an accepted fact, but everytime someone posts sources, it comes from one of these """non-religious/non-partisan""" nonprofits that are stacked with ultra religious board members.

Not sure who you were looking at specifically, but here's some research from last year by a bunch of researchers presenting at the European Association of Urology: https://www.everydayhealth.com/erectile-dysfunction/pornography-habit-is-linked-to-erectile-dysfunction-research-suggests/

>they found that of those below age 35 who watched 300 minutes per week, 30 percent had ED compared with 10 percent in those who watched less than 30 minutes. In the 35 to 45 age group that watched 300 minutes per week, 40 percent had ED.

>in the group below 35 we saw more ED then we expected, about 23 percent
>Porn-induced ED is not caused by a low libido or an organic problem in the blood vessels or nerves of the penis. Twenty percent under age 35 say they need to watch more and more, or more extreme porn to get the same level of arousal to get an erection. And in those who feel they need to watch more to get the same level of arousal to get an erection [they] also watch more and have a higher addiction score

No. 171933

Interesting. Funny how it explicitly states it's a "non-regliious" organization but is funded entirely by Mormons. While I'm personally against porn I do think that outlook should be supported by sound research in addition to moral reasons. However, my point stands that despite the org's personal leanings, the research they link in their citations seems solid. For example, one of their citations is this review by a number of medical professionals in the military, so I doubt they would have much bias. Their exploration of many references from medical journals also seems to implicate similar findings: https://www.mdpi.com/2076-328X/6/3/17/htm

No. 171989

I agree, as long as the research is actually legit, I don't think sponsor's religious beliefs should be questioned or picked apart that much tbh. Researches have to be funded, and if mormons won't do that who will? Apart from religious people, those with money don't bother to question porn industry because of how lucrative it is. You think liberals will go against billion $$$ porn? Conservatives? Says a lot that the only ones questioning widespread porn consumption and its morality and are giving money to fight it are the ones that believe jerking off will land you in hell.

No. 171990

Good points anon. Being against porn is a pretty spicy take these days because scrotes are addicted and don't give a shit about victims, and most women have been shamed and socialized into thinking they should be all about it too. It's been so normalized now that religious groups are some of the only institutions left that are critical of it. Of course, they're every bit as misogynistic as atheists, just in a more traditional sense so liberals get to consider them "backwards" and feel superior since they degrade women in more modern, socially acceptable ways. If Mormons want to compile legit anti-porn research even as they abuse their wives, then I hope they continue right on with that (the compiling, not abuse).

This might not be a popular view on lolcow, but I like that sarcasm is being called out more often. Particularly coming from men. After knowing several scrotes that pride themselves on it, I will never interact with one who believes being sarcastic is an acceptable major personality trait. It's hilarious seeing quite a few men on dating apps specifically note how sarcastic they are in their profiles, as if this makes them paragons of wit and intellect rather than everyday assholes. 99% of the time they only want a convenient excuse to put other people down so they can feel superior. It's literally the bullying "It's just a joke bro!" approach and yet they start crying and saying you're "taking it too far" if you turn it back around on them. Weak and fragile little egoists. The only time sarcasm is actually funny is when it's used to mock shitty situations, like if someone works 2 jobs and still barely scrapes by then jokes that they're living in the lap of luxury as they heat up a $3 frozen meal. If a guy uses it to mock people, especially those he doesn't already have a close relationship with, he's just a dick.

This is the most logical conclusion. Who else really cares about pornography being harmful? Radfems? They don’t exactly have the money/influence to conduct scientific studies on porn. Religious groups are the only ones with the money and the inclination.

I definitely agree with being skeptical of who is funding these sorts of studies (you should always be skeptical of groups who are incentivized to want you to believe something), but there is pretty much no one else who cares to be critical of porn. More people are incentivized to be accepting of porn because it’s such a lucrative industry for producers/some sex workers and everyday regular men can’t live without it. Anyone who makes money from or uses porn regularly (that’s a lot of people) don’t have any reason to study the negative effects.

Female attention is worth WAY more than male attention. Women can live happily single, while men become severely mentally unstable if they don't get female attention. Besides with all the competition, any man worth his salt knows he needs to invest while the trash ones will try to skirt by on minimum effort.

you don't see women making memes and entire online communities/movements based on tfw no gf. also pusy is not easy to come by for the average male, they get much fewer matches from online dating and often will feign emotional attachment just to get pussy. dick is what's cheap, and women aren't as horny so they can go longer without a hookup. and the fact that so many average women can go from relationship to relationship means that they can easily find people to date and make connections with, whereas so many men are single. of course i'm speaking for normie women and not maladjusted terminally online ones

With how much it is said that FDS principles work I don't actually see any proof. You want to say that women that post their minute life details on the subreddit (finished a workout, bought flowers, did nails etc.) stop doing that once they meet and marry the mythical HVM? I don't buy it. It doesn't seem that FDS has such great track record.

And also who is writing the dating advice? Women here and on fds love to make fun of men that listen to 'male motivational speakers' like Peterson or Rogan but at least they have a real face and a background that can be checked. Meanwhile all advice given on FDS comes from anonymous people you know nothing about. I don't think it is healthy to blindly follow and change your life based on some reddit posts. They are not your friends. it is not a real community. Who wrote the handbook? What are the 'RUTHLESS STRATEGISTS' credentials? is the poster even a woman? has she been in a single healthy relationship? All this shitting on reddit advice subs, yet when a poster prefaces their post with 'all men are trash' and claims to be a woman suddenly what they say can't be questioned???

A friend of mine went from one great relationship (that she fucked up in because she broke up with him to 'trade up' with some other guy that didn't turn out well), into completely casual stuff, then into a horrible relationship and became addicted to fds after the last one made her insanely jaded.
When I pointed out how some of the stuff she was preaching from them very double-standard-y, or straight up toxic (she unironically followed the '6 figures, 6 feet, 6 inches' rule, while telling me her suitors should date her for how ~unique~ and NLOG-y she is), she got insanely defensive. So far she's seen 40+ men and found none of them 'good enough' for her. She says this all while she doesn't want to waste time dating a guy that won't propose to her on the first year of dating either, so I have no idea how she'll achieve that.

I like FDS a lot and defend it all the time but the 'I bought myself a ring!!' trend is cringe af. Buying yourself rings is normal and it just seems like a weird cope for not being married.

Also people already think every woman on FDS is a fat, ugly femcel, I don't believe that's true but it doesn't help when you see fat hands like that being posted…

Buying yourself jewelry is normal, buying yourself a promise ring is for chubby turbovirgins

I found FDS to be better when it only had around 10~20k members. There was more actual content I think (and plain man hate kek) while now it's mostly just tiktoks, memes and "Yaaaas queen, slayy" type of content and comments voted to the top. I guess it's inevitable the original content gets muddled with ten times as many members, and especially trying to appease the reddit admins, but I'm still a bit sad about it.

No. 178463

Here's what I don't get: it's not a promise/engagement ring. It's just a ring. Rings with stones in it aren't exclusively engagement rings if that's what they're thinking? Like, is that the train of thought here? "A ring with a big stone in it is supposed to be an engagement ring, but I just bought one for myself, slam dunk!!"

No. 178469

95% of FDS is fucking embarrassing. i'm not a 10/10 catch by any means but even i can find decent guys without having to "multi date" and "vet". most of the women on there just need to get a grip on reality, they're not very desirable and trash attracts other trash

No. 178473

I guess the multi dating and scrotation shit depends on where you’re at. When I lived in Denver and had a good social life I met decent dudes constantly, and the people in general were overall more normal and upfront about themselves. I wouldn’t say down to earth but they didn’t care as much if you wore makeup or had a tit job as much as if you could do their stupid ass over the top athletic activities with them
Moved to SoCal and it’s ridiculous, literally everyone is putting on a front. Luxury shit, gold digging on both sides, guys trying to fuck as many and as young of women as they can, I can see why people have to rotate just to see if one sticks.

What I don’t get is how they keep a rotation if most men are garbage and finding a hvm is so hard.

No. 178477

>Most people on a dating strategy subreddit are gonna be losers

Breaking news. Next you'll tell me that all redpillers are incel virgins (duh).

Most sane hot women don't need to be taught "FDS principles" as they have them instinctively. Beckies and young women need to have them spelled out. Nothing wrong with that, as all women benefit from reducing male reproductive choices. Multi-dating is mostly for keeping yourself from developing cock myopia and oneitis.

No. 178486

This is a shitty take. Nice, smart, pretty girls end up with horrible men all the time. Are you saying girls who are 'not very desirable' bring abuse on themselves and deserve to be treated badly? That if they appeal to men even more they're guaranteed to be treated well?

Not everyone is fortunate enough to naturally have high self esteem, strong boundaries and be surrounded by great guys. Decent men are not actually common (not wanting a guy who watches porn cuts out 99%) and society does everything it can to brainwash women into lowering their standards, vetting is common sense.

Has anyone listened to the FDS podcast? What do you think of it? I binged the episodes yesterday and I found them fun. If you've followed sub for a while nothing new but hearing them talk about Bridgerton and more shows in future sounds fun. Here's a link to the most recent ep about the vice hit piece.

No. 178518

Yeah, this is so wrong and it's such a misogynistic, arrogant attitude. Abuse could happen to that anon just as easily as any one of us. As easily as it could happen to any man! It's just that those manipulative behaviors are supported by society at large for men (and by their physical strength) in a way they aren't for women. No woman ever imagines she's going to fall for an abuser. Smart, strong, independent, beautiful women are taken advantage of by men all the time. You don't fall for a guy and then he immediately starts calling you names and beating you within a day. It's a drip feed of him saying something that seems a bit sexist/racist/homophobic once, and you think, "Huh that's weird, but maybe he just phrased it wrong." So you talk about it and he explains it away. Then it happens again, or he makes a negative comment about you, and it keeps adding up and adding up until he's controlling what you wear and saying you should shut up and by that time you're too fucking embarassed to realize how much you've let him diminish you to bring it up, precisely because you thought you were "better" than that and maybe if you find the right words you can reach this person who started out so wonderfully.

Many of us have grown up with the idea you "stand by your man" and that it's normal to try and help your partner be a better person, so you try to speak to them like fellow humans who want to improve, but they care about their egos and sense of power more than they do you. No one teaches women about how shitty most men are. It's why so many of us approach men in that empathetic, patient, respectful way, because we think they're the same as us. They aren't. Their subjugation of us is how they maintain power, so it would be stupid of them to deviate from that. FDS is one of the only places on the internet that says, "Hey, maybe don't ignore those early red flags that you brushed off or assumed were misunderstandings." That says women are right to trust themselves, that they shouldn't drop their standards thinking a man loves her enough to not be a shithead (vast majority don't). This is not common knowledge and instead women are blamed for men's behaviors, when we're taught to just "give him a chance" and "no one's perfect" and put up with it like a good little toy.

No. 178520

uhh you kinda need at least some oneitis and whatever else the other thing you said was if you wanna be in a long term relationship. literally killing off all pair bonding in you is not healthy

No. 178521

FDS needs to be a little more pinkpilled. It's very simple:

There is a vast biological empathy gap between males and females. Women empathize with men, men don't empathize with women. Therefore, women need to condition themselves to be more pragmatic in order to negate the advantages men have.

No. 178522

I totally agree with your point, but I disagree in thinking FDS doesn't state this frequently and emphatically. A ton of the posts talk about how men lack empathy, manipulate their partners, play games, cheat, ghost, watch porn and perform otherwise sociopathic behavior (there's a post there now about a man who put literal SLUGS into his girlfriend's shakes) to the point many women have disavowed themselves of dating entirely with the attitude of "if someone great shows up then I'd love to have a relationship, otherwise I'm going to focus on myself" which is what women need to hear and do for themselves.

you know a lot of girls have had unfortunate upbringings where they aren't taught how to have self worth or boundaries, or worse are actually discouraged from those traits. add a few dashes of systemic and cultural sexism and you have a perfect cocktail for young, pretty, smart and kind girls being treated like doormats by mediocre or even downright toxic males. i shudder to think of the things non-conventionally attractive women put up with. FDS is cringe but much better than some of the old mindsets women had towards dating

No. 178534

As long as you control the oneitis, sure. Though in my opinion limiting your strategy to "hurr durr cuff my one and only prince happily ever after" Disney shit is wack. Mammalian pair bonding is not permanent, and you don't need to believe that something is eternal in order to enjoy it.

I'm in a happy marriage, but my rational self understands that there's much more to life than this, and it's for 5 to 10 years max, so I planned accordingly.

No. 178536

The "HVM" idea is pretty utopian once you consider the fact that men have poor impulse control and are inherently prone to coomditioning, and accidentally nutting at the wrong thing can change everything about your Nigel over the course of one week. He's a "HVM" until he isn't.

Obviously FDS is great and so much better than the default simpette mindset girls are raised with, but still too unrealistic for my liking.

I know myself well enough to know that I grow bored quickly, anon. I'm happy for your parents, but not everyone is looking for the same thing. If they still truly love each other and aren't just sticking around due to habit and material entanglements, that's pretty based (and rare).
I have considered that and tried to meme myself into being different, but it just didn't fly. Overall I don't understand why my approach viscerally offends as many women as it does men.

I don't care if marriage is your endgame or really scrote feelings if he's aware, I find idea of planning such a serious financial entanglement for a relatively short period of time (5 years) really odd especially going back to risks of male violence.

Are you saying he's attempted to abuse you or that you will accuse him of abuse in court? I'm so confused. I don't even think accusing someone of abuse is something they recommend in FDS.

No. 178577

I think a lot of women within the FDS community recognize this though? I've seen videos posted where women express that men are way more likely to leave if you ever get sick, so plan accordingly. Know that you have to "vet" forever and if he ever displays abusive behavior even years down the line you should be ready to leave. Cultivate your own wealth and resources so you're never dependent on a man even if you live together. Also whenever you see someone say they think they've found a HVM you get tons of women saying that's nice but don't ever give him a free pass or assume he's going to be perfect forever. Basically: Enjoy men while they're meeting you're expectations, but always be ready to walk.

What I mainly don't get about the fds sub is them being all about modern women and women going their own way if the men aren't suitable, but still idealizing gestures that came from like advertisements in the '70s like diamond rings, drinking champagne in high rise restaurants and all kinds of hollywood clichés. They're also still usually about performing high femininity, just "for the right man". It's a weird chimera of the girl power movement and tradwives.

These are the more baffling to me, combined with an overlap with unironic sugaring. Like I assume it's all just LARPing and lies anyway, but mods/regular posters going on about receiving cars/houses and "rich troubled millionaire falls for common woman" women's erotica character trope fantasies seem ill-fitting with the message of not being blinded by materialistic offerings over character traits.

He wouldn't be around if he did. In case of divorce (even in a no-fault state) abuse can still be used in your favor in a settlement. If you're a dependent spouse, he will still owe you alimony, for instance - you just need a halfway decent lawyer. In a hypothetical situation where he cuts everything off financially, the case may be taken on a contingency basis and the fees are paid out of the settlement. Your situation may vary.

The only way you might be fucked is if you 50/50, have your own property or kids. In any other case, everything your husband makes after marriage is legally marital property aka 50% yours.

It's not just that. Women (especially egirl types) tend to think that men's interest is defined by how much they want to fuck you. In reality, it's determined by how much they're willing to do for you/how many resources they invest. In that sense, the only way you can be a "femcel" is when men don't simp for you, not when they don't fuck you.

Everyone here is familiar with the reddit type of girl who posts on r/relationships asking whether she should "le communicate" over her boyfriend taking a dump in her mouth while she sleeps. FDS is those women in recovery. Naturally, they're going to be a little cringe.

No. 178661

So are you dating a guy who makes much more than you/are you financially reliant on him? That can be risky. And if you're only planning on being with someone for a 5-10 years I question how well the man will handle it.

I married a guy who was my FWB and we generally get along, we likely won't ever cheat on each other mostly cause we don't wanna deal with other people, have no plans for children and I guess were more like roomates who are in good terms more then a married couple but I like him and he likes me and Im glad were together

No. "Likely won't cheat on each other"

- what the fuck? not to mention your relationship seems like a mere extension of being fwb. Now, your life's your life, and you don't need to live by FDS standards.

No. 179591

NTA but if you've got more of a friendship/partnership rather than a typical romantic marriage, your relationship can't really be judged by FDS standards. Generally a HVM is a guy who adores you and that doesn't seem like a priority for you. But as long as he adds value to your life and treats you well, that's fine.

No. 179596

I mean, if you’re happy anon. Some people would rather have a happy smooth sailing type of relationship and I respect that.
Now I think like other anons mentioned before, make sure that you always have a backup plan in case your husband empties your bank account and runs off or something, or be able to support yourself.

IMO FDS can be a bit cringy and some are a bit too jaded by guys (yeah I know most are terrible, but if you hang around decent men, you will see that a lot of them are still pretty normal) but at least they’re not writing off the entire genre and you can find some gushing about their husband in the comments and that’s kinda cute. Incels and redpill guys hate all women without exception so I always found the comparison ridiculous.

I don’t agree with waiting forever before having sex with someone for example because I don’t want to waste time dating someone who’s terrible in bed or afflicted with a micro dick. I don’t even personally require dudes to whoo me with dinner. But I’m good at establishing boundaries and plan on remaining financially independent even if I ever get married. So some of their tips are pretty good, plus I like the “women first” mindset.

No. 179597

I mean he does add value to my life, I'm not gonna find a perfect guy who is rich, satisfy me sexually, loves me endlessly and has all my interests, I'd probably require me to go through a lot of garbage men and hassle, I have a guy who can satisfy my sexually, takes care of his own shit but helps me with mind and well likes and we have similar interests and Im really fine with that

You sound so lukewarm about it, kek. Then again, I never got the point of spending time with someone you're just "fine" with, whether it be boyfriends or friends.

Again, as a former mod of FDS I have to say that nothing good comes out of laughing at the "value" of FDS women–you're literally giving MRAs and MGTOWs and whatever else manosphere trash the material that they want to 'prove' that women who expect better of men must be ugly and undesirable anyways. And no, it's not "full of black women" (which is something I've only seen manosphere men say btw, keep outing yourselves scrotes). The majority of women I interacted with (probably the most active users for reference) were white. I'm not going to lie and say all of them were 10/10 catches but a surprising number of less active women were much better looking and more accomplished than angry moids like to think that the average FDS user would be. Overall I think the philosophy that FDS (or better yet, FemaleLIFEStrategy) promotes is necessary for young women to hear and that discrediting the women by how ugly or undesirable (kek, what a joke) they are is not just petty but goes against female empowerment in general. And this is coming from someone who actually had bad interactions with FDS and is not affiliated with them anymore but sees the benefit for ALL women to expect better of men. I'd actually support a private group if [female] farmers really want to make fun of FDS (I wouldn't join personally, just seems like a waste of time), just not out in the open like LC where manosphere moids can benefit from it. Look at all of the obvious men who have posted in here, they're clearly reading and getting off on whatever we post that's roasting the women of FDS.
Anyway I wish more focus was on FemaleLifeStrategy or some other movement based on women's personal development and not FDS. Women are taught to feel like they need a man to be complete. Even if you're an attractive woman, you will be judged for not having a man despite it being clearly obvious that you could get one easily if you tried. And men are shit, you can't change them or the shitty ones who come into your life. So imo women should be focusing on improving their own lives so when men come and go then you have a healthy and happy life to fall back on. Compare this to women who make men their entire existence and go through existential crises and have no money when their man leaves them. Actually even the majority of women who I met through FDS ended up in long term relationships with men that they met IRL, not the ones they spent hours on dating apps finding. Moral of the story: live your life, better yourself as a human being, and don't fuck around on dating apps or seeking out to date men because the majority you'll encounter who are seeking out women are always desperate for a female partner for a fundamentally bad reason (bangmaid, mommy 2.0, needs a free therapist).

dude people in general need a partner to feel complete, not just women. it's not about being "taught". that's why incels are so vocal about not being able to get girlfriends, or why ugly women cannot cope. the reason FDS exists is because those women are literally failed women, and the reason MRA/MGTOW exists is because those men are failed men. i cannot see how the average woman that naturally fosters healthy relationships could benefit from FDA; a lot of the stuff posted there is bitter and frankly reeks of undesirable women (whether physically or mentally) that consider themselves a dime. i would not trust a man who learns from PUA's just as much as i would not trust a woman who learns from FDA.

No. 180504

>i would not trust a man who learns from PUA's just as much as i would not trust a woman who learns from FDA.
Hard agree, FDS is the female equivalent of PUA strategy. Both are retarded and will never result in a fulfilling relationship. But
>people in general need a partner to feel complete
Sis if you feel incomplete without a partner you need to do some work on yourself. You're setting yourself up to be devastated if your relationships don't work out. You're a complete person and worthy of happiness without needing another person as a crutch. Ffs buy a pet if you're that lonely. They make much better companions than the majority of men.

No. 180510

I don't really see the similarities between FDS and PUA to be honest. A PUAs goal is to sleep with as many women as possible while doing as little loss as possible, while FDS' goal just seems to be to find a permanent partner who puts in effort.

No. 180513

not an FDSer myself because I've been dating the same person for years, but I don't see how it is at all similar to PUA. it's just a process to avoid getting entangled with useless men. I've used FDS principles to improve my relationship (self improvement, raising my standards, remaining independent) and not get taken advantage of by "nice guys" who pretend to be my friends. genuinely improved my life and I'm not an "undesirable" woman, I get hit on regularly, am in my mid 20s, no children, have lots of career prospects. Unless by being "undesirable" people mean not being a doormat pickme, which in that case I'd rather be undesirable lmao

No. 180514

Yeah, please point to where FDS is teaching women how to sleep with as many men as possible or future fake in general. It starts on the premise that you are looking for a serious relationship and tells women that they deserve more or equal to what they can offer to a man. I mean it make sense–why play mommy or unpaid therapist when you can be happier alone? Unless a guy is actually adding to your life and not making it worse,
This person (man?) >>180494 has no idea what the fuck they're talking about. I'm gonna guess it's a man because they did the whole "actually EVERYONE is made to do xyz" when I made a point specific to women and they seem to really think manosphere moids (who are correlated with literal school shooters, ok) are somehow equivalent to FDS women.
Also, men aren't taught to feel incomplete like women are–they are taught that they are entitled to women. Whereas women want to be seen as normal, desirable, men will literally shoot up public spaces with some manifesto about how they were never "given" a woman. I'm so sick of moids and their lack of perspective on literally everything kek.

Morally, of course PUA is much more repugnant, but when it comes to delusion and sheer stupidity, they are very much equivalents.

Think about it this way, what kind of men will you attract (or filter) when behaving in accordance with FDS? If you keep giving man cold shoulder in belief that "the right one" will persist, then you will inevitably end up with someone who has no respect for your boundaries. Man who showers you with material gifts is probably going to view relationship in terms of trade, and you as a glorified prostitute. If you show no sexual interest in a guy for X amount of time, then the ones who stay with you are probably not very sexual themselves.

The best thing you can do when dating is try to turn off you superego. Ignore societal norms and your insecurities and dont try to please the guy. Unironically just be yourself and follow your own desires, so that you actually attract men who like you for you.

No. 180541

>If you keep giving man cold shoulder in belief that "the right one" will persist, then you will inevitably end up with someone who has no respect for your boundaries.
NTA but I don’t see FDS saying to give men the cold shoulder or act like a cold bitch for no reason, and they don’t define HVM as someone who just buys you stuff. Plenty of guys who aren’t just looking for a quick fuck are very willing to wait on sex as well, that’s really not an unreasonable standard.

I’m not even a member of the subreddit and I’m not gonna accuse anyone of being a scrote on lolcow, but it boggles my mind how so many posters say FDS is just like PUA forums or some red pill for women. It’s hardly a ridiculous standard to want a scrote to be invested in your relationship when so many clearly aren’t.

No. 180543

>It’s hardly a ridiculous standard to want a scrote to be invested in your relationship when so many clearly aren’t.
My point isnt that it is unreasonable, but that FDS simply does not work. To treat dating as "investment" will result in you ending up with people who also see it in these transactional terms. Which is exact opposite of a healthy relationship. You should be enjoying each others company. If you dont, then what is the point?

No. 180551

Enjoying your time with that person doesn't mean they give you what you need emotionally, make you feel loved, or even care about you. Imo a lot of women tend to give relationships their all, where men tend to be along for the ride and put in minimal effort. And that's why many women are unhappy later. She enjoyed his company and they had fun together! But now months (or even years) later when things have gotten serious he won't listen to her worries, he reacts to stressful situations by yelling or blowing up at her, he leaves her do all the chores by herself, and he barely even shows her physical affection outside of sex they maybe have once a month.

If only she looked beyond how entertaining he was or how much fun they had together when things were going smoothly. That's what FDS advises women to do, to look at things objectively because if you don't chances if you choose wrong the relationship is going to look like the above in a couple years.

No. 180552

Not seeing your point, tbh. As >>180541 says, FDS doesn't give the advice to give the cold shoulder, they just say don't chase after men. As for gifts, simply picking stuff up you saw, thinking of anniversaries and birthdays and so on is normal in relationships, no? And with sex FDS says to keep it at 3 months minimum, but I thought about half a year plus/minus a few months was standard for every non-fuckboy anyway lmao. Idk, maybe I'm just drawn to FDS because what they say already IS what I do/did naturally by being myself in which I concede your last point lmao.

No. 180555

You know, I head this one quote, dont remember where anymore, that is always comes on my mind when thinking about relationships. It goes something like: "If you are not married by the time you hit 30, statistically speaking you have avoided your first divorce". I would love to have my happily ever after, but it is a fantasy. People evolve, feelings change, nothing is going to last forever. I mean look at how those old couples that have been together for decades live - no passion, no excitement, staying together out of conveniece and habit. Finding someone with whom you share genuine connection, spending couple years together and when the flame burns out, moving on to find someone else. That sounds like a lot better life. I mean when my time runs out I am not going to be able to feel anything for all eternity, so until then I want to get my share of passion.

No. 180556

I see what you're saying, but if it burns out to begin with it wasn't a genuine connection. Maybe you just happened to entertain each other when you were just bored/lonely, or maybe you satisfied each other sexually. Basically a temporary relationship which was born out of convenience (ie. you're both attracted to each other and get on "well enough" so that means you should date, right?) and therefore doesn't really mean anything. It's just a time waster, but in that case it's just better to spend some quality time with yourself doing things that you love.

I don't know about everyone on FDS but chances are they want a deeper connection, not something both parties go along with just because they're horny or lonely or want to split rent. I feel like most relationships fall under this which is why they fail. Maybe it is unrealistic or a pipe dream but it's still worth it to me to find someone worthy to share my life with in a meaningful way.

For the record, I feel the same way with my friends as well. I just don't see the value in keeping mediocre people in my life who I'll eventually want to get rid of.

No. 180569

I agree wholeheartedly anon. I didn’t lurk FDS until after I got in a committed relationship, but I can say I was already doing a lot of what they recommend just from past experiences. I personally don’t doubt their recommendations work. If anything, most women need much much higher standards. Women should be more critical and calculating about relationships, we just have more to lose if the guy is trash, or even violent/abusive.

No. 180604

I can't believe someone came in here ranting about "failed, undesirable women" and didn't get banned for penis-having. If you're fat, ugly, or mentally ill, then you should give up on yourself and disappear, or just let men abuse you? Nonsense. Everyone benefits if these so-called "failed" women continue to improve themselves and put their energy into the world. You could argue that, even without exchanging a single word, strangers benefit because sharing a space with a confident, self assured person is preferable to a depressed, self deating one. I hate men so much for shackling women's self worth to their appearance and obedience. I hate men for their entitlement, lack of empathy, and looking like swamp creatures. They're hideous and disgusting. Every single woman on the planet is better than even the highest value male, including the fat ugly psycho bitches, just by virtue of being female. I'm proud of every woman who looks to FDS and learns to prioritise herself, especially those who were raised to have low standards and even lower self esteem. It takes a lot of courage to admit to yourself "this isn't working, I don't want to be hurt anymore" and then actually work towards a better future. For any anons in here going through it, please know I have your back. I'm cheering for you always.

>>181187 When I was in high school, there was this straight up model-ish girl. She was the most beautiful person I've ever met.

This is so spot on. When I was an awkward pimple faced teenager wearing baggy clothes, I couldn’t walk into Walmart without some (often much older) man hitting on me and calling me beautiful. Later on when I got more confidence, dressed more stylish, actually styled my hair, etc, I noticed a dramatic drop in the random “hey beautiful” comments.

All those precious compliments women are apparently missing out on "because of feminism" is just straight up predatory shit, picking out the women/girls they think won't push back too hard.

>One on hand they usually preach about how men who like other women's pictures, look at lewd images of women etc are red flags
Women will never be able to objectify and dehumanize male bodies like scrotes do to women. It's not hypocritical, because women don't react to erotica and porn like males do. Looking at a photoshoot of an underwear model is different than simping for an anal gape thot or obsessively collecting nudes of all kinds of women, no matter if they consent to it.

No. 184436

You're comparing two different scenarios. Don't act like FDS users haven't compared a man having a playboy mag or even liking a picture of a girl in a bikini on Instagram was literally cheating and a red flag (not that I disagree with that statement) but FDS has become an almost joke with hypocrisy. It's literally all over cringe subreddits and have been doing the exact opposite of what FDS was meant to do and has been driving women away.

Yes I get it men suck and the porn industry is corrupt but becoming what you were just claiming was wrong makes you automatically invalid. Why not just be a healthy minded group for young women?

No. 184439

That anon is right, because women and men do react to these things differently. Most men are taught it's okay to objectify women. Even if they are just looking at tasteful pinups or nudes doesn't really make a difference, chances are in their head they still see the woman as a fleshlight. Women will find models or whatever hot, but rarely will ever dehumanize them and see them as a set of abs like men look at women as a walking pair of tits. It's just how it is. Sure, there are men who look at this stuff who don't objectify women as a whole and women who objectify/dehumanize men, but they are the minority imo.

Not really a fair comparison, FDS aren't posting hot guys because they want a convenient collection of fap material once a week. They're doing it to prove a point and make scrotes seethe (even if they say otherwise, it's too satisfying for that not to be the case). They know there are a tonne of insecure male lurkers who can't stand women openly expressing their attraction to conventionally handsome, fit men. Inferior men are gonna get hurt feelings and throw tantrums, because they've convinced themselves women actually prefer dadbods and geriatrics. It's petty but women have spent too long pretending to not like hot guys out of fear of being called shallow or attacked for their standards while men expect us to be 10/10 teenage supermodels.

Personally I don't think FDS has the right vibe for collective thirsting and they're just gonna post boring, generic stock image models but I like the sentiment.

A muscular guy is definitely not MY preference neither is a chubby gamer. But if women do not like it when men lustly look at us then why do we have to do it back? Yes men do jack off to us more to our pictures(yuck) but really? is this really the right way to get the point across?
Yeah I'm definitely leaving the community and I believe I stayed too long, kept having toxic thoughts about men. I do believe in the HVM,LVM,NVM,pickmes and upping standards. I believe in a lot of stuff there but the subreddit has turned slightly hypocritical as if the moderators (WHO?) are very pushy with THEIR ideas. If I don't want to be treated that way, then I will not treat others that way.

>FDS does not have bad viewpoints.
I would say that while FDS has pretty much only good points, it's exactly the VIEWpoins that are the problem.
While every single point made in the guide is objectively right, the whole community is covered in a miasma of bitterness and hate. I look at the biggest FDS aficionados and I see nothing but disillusion and thirst for revenge, it just fills me with confusion because if you reach the point where your premise for dating is that every single man is garbage and only 10/10s MAY temporarily not hurt you or waste your time, then why are you still dating men in the first place?

Someone earlier in the thread likened FDS to PUA, and as far as the motivations of its members, the aspect of revenge does seem similar.
The same way a lot of PUA incel recruiting comes from the promise that they'll get to "strike back" by cajoling the dreaded Stacy into sleeping with them with trickery, so many FDS threads seem to focus on how they're gonna enact revenge on the LVM boogieman, as if leaving a date without paying is going to strike back against moids as a whole and mend the wounds of past relationships.

FDS really needs to get repackaged as FLS, like another anon said.
All of the advice within is really valid, and it needs to be accessible in a way that doesn't attract broken, bitter people whose main interest seems to be making everyone else as disillusioned and jaded towards dating (or hell, life itself) as they are.

Or he could stop being a lazy fat piece of shit and rub your clit with his fingers. Men have very little justification to be fat considering that men have no pregnancy weight gain, have easier time losing weight and gaining muscle, and also have anatomical advantages for physical activities by default. Just in regards to sex, fat men run out of stamina more easily, can't do certain positions because they're not fit enough, and have a dick that is relatively smaller than the size it would be relative to their frame if they were thinner. Fat men are just a disgrace to the human race as a whole, maybe we don't need to be thirsting over Chads but we need to be shaming the actual LVM traits instead.

I only browse it casually and you can still tell they're self-obsessed "i'm so crazy, guuuurl" type of women, also shilling their podcast so they can become the "faces" of FDS, and the things some of them submit are extra painful. One of them submitted her "W" of mocking another woman for taking "walkies" with her boyfriend in babyspeak and emoji spam, and didn't notice that she was way cringier than the other party, it even got removed before I remembered to take a screenshot because people were pointing it out yesterday. I'll also claw my eyes out if I see that nail painting emoji. Twitterspeak in general can go rot it hell.

I feel like the the core problem of FDS is the same as with any dating advice subreddit - people in healthy fulfilling relationships have no reason to use them, and those are exactly the ones you want advice from. The userbase consits of people whose romantic lifes are either non-existent, or complete fuckups.

No, anon, you musn't!
I don't think posting ripped men is changing much, it's not like men didn't date chubby women in the anorexic clubgirl era just because that was in the media. FDS doesn't even know what it wants to say a lot of the time, because much of their text is somewhat contradicted by what gets posted. Like in-text "high value" is not supposed to be peak physique or being rich, but it often gets conflated. Also how "high value" women are supposed to independent and critical of "libfem lies and values" but all the iconic tiktoks and image macros they post have women dressed and painted like high-end prostitutes speaking with an annoying vocal fry.

No. 184600

Yeah but FDS doesn't believe that anyone liking what they like must be pickmes. Also the whole thing about how "HVM love to compete with other men" is dumb and very manipulative

The blind teaching the blind pretty much. I remember a while back women in fufilling relationships (or at least claiming to have them) use to frequent but constant unstable posting pushed them away. It's become more of a pink pill subreddit in disguise which on reddit while likely get banned if it keeps acting this way and do the complete opposite of helping women. I honestly think women needs to be eased into seeing the side especially in this male centric world but when the opposite side keeps displaying instability and nobody does anything and keeps defending the bad apples it will shut down everything

I dont mean physical abuse, but psychologically it stems from feeling of low self esteem and worthlessness. People who are into fat guys believe (mostly subconsciously) that they deserve to be degraded like that. It is unhealthy attitude that should be called out.

Not all cases even then you shouldn't really judge. Maybe they were abused by a fit/skinny man and all they can bring themselves to be attracted to is chubby men? Maybe they find it attractive because they themself is chubby as well and they want to improve it together? Who are you to concern with what women are attracted to physically? At least they're not like men and wanting literal deathfats and trying to kill women and give them eating disorders for the sake of their fetish.

I don’t think fit automatically equals high value, but if a guy is healthy it shows that he’s disciplined and has a positive relationship with himself. I wouldn’t want to date a guy with no discipline and a negative relationship with himself. He’d be more likely to be apathetic at best and straight up negative and delusional at worst. Same with broke guys, like clearly they can’t control their desires or plan ahead. Back when I had low self esteem and was less accomplished I said the same dumb cope things. If only I woke up sooner and spent my energy on myself instead of dating losers. I have two degrees, a sizeable bank account, investments, fluency in two languages and a nice body but imagine what more I could have done without scrotum in my life. Money and time spent going 50/50 with losers could have gone to working out more, taking classes in interesting things, developing more skills, learning more languages, more time for friendships.

True, but if he comes from a decent financial background and has no disabilities and can’t make something of himself then that’s a red flag for me. The guy doesn’t need to be making 6 figures but living paycheque to paycheque is a no. Even when I made under 50k a year I still saved money.

KEK no stop trying to reason with women who already have embarrassing standards for men. I have to believe that some of you are either nonnys with chubby poor leeching bfs or you’re just straight men who are trying to police us in what we can/can’t expect from men. The anon said she has investments, a career, and an education and you still want her to be open to some moid who is ultimately leeching off of her in all regards esp financially?
Imo if you don’t have the basics covered in your own life you should not be dating. The majority of people who do anyways are looking for handouts. Their partner always has to “make up” for what the other person doesn’t have. And nowadays this is pushed among career-oriented women because it’s some sort of bs narrative for us to say fuck you to the patriarchy and traditional gender roles while we slave for 70% of the wages our male partner would earn in the same job to support the both of us. If any of you have seen World of the Married then you’ll know that marrying some moid to do all the SAHD shit because you’re a career woman just fucks you over because you get all the negatives of male behavior and none of the positives. Ik it’s ficitional but the portrayal of the working wife and lazy husband was too on-point for myself and other women. Like the cheating husband of that show, a number of lazy aspiring SAHD moids who want female breadwinners are drains on women who have so much going for them. For any woman in this situation carrying a moid who she knows she’s too good for, get out now. Whatever qualities that you’ve compromised on (attractiveness, finances, personality, ambition) are not paying off because he’s so sweet and supportive—these men will be just as unhinged if not more as the hotter one who seems more intimidating. I mentioned that I’ve been in the same situation but ime my ex was harmless soyboy type to other people but eventually always came to blame me and showed a ton of odd aggression about his problems on me. When I told people later on about it they couldn’t believe it because the kind man will always get their sympathy before the dominant, assertive woman. To me he was capable of physical aggression and typical male abusive behavior but to everyone else he was the most harmless beta ever. Not like a frat Chad who people go “oh I could see how he’d be a dick”. I only found out how “male” he was when we fought bc he had none of the positive male characteristics that you find attractive in a dude like assertiveness to correct a wrong order at dinner (ik, love yourselves girlies).
Like The World of the Married, these men are the type who are deep down a bum ass bitch with flaky career ideas and nothing to offer on paper other than the qualities you think he has. He plays up his sweetness and harmlessness to make women believe that the trade-off is worth it. He goes for the go-getter woman who has way more stuff going for her but also has fear around relatively more assertive/responsible men. For me and other women, the fear is oftentimes being controlled by someone else. But eventually it’s just a woman caring for a man child which is not empowering in the slightest. The same ex was always back to dating after breaking up as well because he cannot be alone with issues that he needs women to try and fix. He is persistent in leeching whether that be emotional labor or material gains like financial support. People who don’t have stable lives atm are just going to introduce stress into yours, especially when the relationship gets serious and more often than not they start depending on YOU as the relatively more secure one. Finances are a big component of your life, there is nothing wrong with preferring a man who isn’t broke or one who earns more than you do since men earn 30% more than women by default (in America).
So tl;dr: compromising on standards isn’t worth it. Don’t shame women into accepting lesser, esp because men get worse looking and fatter with age. People deserve a legitimate equal, not someone who is basically a dependent. Just stay single and live your life if that’s going to be the case kek. Sorry for any typos, adhd brain makes me over look stuff when I go back and forth with edits. Also sorry for blog post but I hope someone here relates to my own experience.

No. 185069

I totally agree, I don't get what the point of that anon's comment was. If the subset of the population she's referring to is that desperate then what the hell are they, hobos? That's insane, no woman needs to consider dating that. If she meant people temporarily down on their luck, then it should indeed be temporary, and they have no business dating anyone until they're better situated. If you're unemployed or in a shithole job, hold off looking for a partner until you have something to offer. I held myself to this standard as well; I focused on improving myself and my opportunities when I was in a crap job until I was able to land a better one, improved my education and got more life experience. Then I persistently dated these "down on their luck" men because that's supposedly what women are supposed to do ("Give a guy a chance!"), and even when I slaved away helping them get their lives together, they were never sweet and attentive and supportive in response. They may have gotten better jobs but they stayed useless and leeched off me in other ways. Everything was about them and why not, because that's the standard that was set at the start of the relationship. It's never going to fucking happen again, the least a man can do is have his finances together, and I'm not going to shame myself for having standards. Believe it or not there are men like this out there as well, who realize they need to bring something to the table and concentrate on themselves before attempting to find partners.

No. 185143

EXACTLY, thank you. The viewpoint "People shouldn't date until they have their shit together" seems reasonable right? Well unless you mention it to a moid because they always freak out. I think it's because we all know men don't take care of themselves in comparison to women, rarely have their shit fully together with some reason for it each time, and when they do have their shit together there's always some catch (prob a womanizer or married kek). I'd say 99% of men on the dating market are looking for a woman to give them a chance and provide the bangmaid services. They haven't got much going for them or have some sort of issue blocking their potential. Eventually the woman starts caring more about this and starts to make an active effort into improving their Nigel's life. We're trying to get them into jobs, good habits, self-improvement, while they can hardly give a shit themselves. Men just like the company of a woman, more specifically sex, emotional labor, manual labor, and the financial contributions. Moreover, men grow up with the idea that they will settle down and 'have' a woman and that she will do X, Y, Z–doesn't matter if this is a marriage, sister wives, whatever, they fully expect to have a woman who is essentially a slave. When men reach their grown adult age they realize how useless they are. Not only do they loose credit around other men for not having a woman but they also have no control over their own lives without a woman to clean up their messes. Think about it–they grow up with no emotional intelligence, little drive for self-improvement other than to pick up women or impress other men, and no insistence on neatness because that would typically be delegated to women of the house.

As far as a healthy relationship goes, I see it like this: an actually healthy relationship is two people meeting each other while walking on their own life paths towards their individual ultimate goal. Since they like each other and their paths are aligned, they decide to walk alongside each other as they continue forward. Best case scenario, you have fun together and if goals change (you have to reroute) then you're not in some complicated mess of circumstances or feelings where you feel like you have to stay with that person or you'll die. Of course it's emotional but you are still your own person, your hopes and dreams and your values don't fall apart because of this person. The worst case scenario is you lose sight of your original goal and continue walking wherever they go because you just want to walk next to that person. Somehow you end up sharing their path/lane and completely lose sight of your own. If it ends then you're 10x devastated because you perceive yourself to have nothing without them since you lost sight of yourself as an individual. This is basically a metaphor for self-sufficiency and codependence.

Men, unfortunately, are parasitic as a class to women; they need us to survive. If that wasn't true then men's life satisfaction and life expectancy wouldn't be significantly larger when married, but it is. Men are blissfully useless at and ignorant of so many things (parenting for example) because society just lets them do whatever they want, leaving the actual relationship/family duties to women.

Nothing was ever expected of them to begin with and when they do try men's capabilities are overstated. Now think of how many skills seem totally normal to us but are a foreign language to men because the extent of their development is however much they develop in a filthy flat shared with 3 other roommates where they cook at best they cook pasta with ragu sauce (or just like college meals in general but in their 20s-30s). Their skillsets rarely get past this gross college boy phase. It's like that one based anon in the MtF thread said, men are looking for someone to replace mom because once they're on their own they're absolutely fucked. Without mom to nag him, he'll bloat up from eating ramen every night, have bug infestations due to the fact that he never does his dishes and waits like a month to do his laundry laundry, etc. Easy solution is to get a girlfriend who will help you "be a better man" (kek suuure) because she'll be so disgusted by your apartment that she cleans it herself.

Vidrel is hilarious as fuck by the way, every woman needs to watch this.

It's because they're smegmoids themselves but can't call them out bc hi scrote is a bannable offense. I've even appeased the jannies by reporting them instead of saying hi scrote but they still remain shitting up these threads with NO RED TEXT (literally jannies wtf). I'd rather use a vpn and get banned for saying hi scrote at this point instead of letting the ejaculators coom up this thread with stuff that women definitely would not say and derail a fun conversation among women.

>Not only do they loose credit around other men for not having a woman but they also have no control over their own lives without a woman to clean up their messes.
That video is funny but also so true it's painful. Looking back I'm embarassed and disappointed that I got meme'd into dropping all semblance of standards. The line I quoted in particular made me think of how I once examined the different points my recent ex and I were at when we started to date. I had just been promoted at my job, was exercising regularly and lost weight, saving money, working on a personal business and in general improving my life. I figured since I had all my ducks in a row, it would be a good time to meet new people. My ex lived in a spider and rat-infested shithole where he had clothes scattered everywhere, worked two different jobs ("How industrious!" I thought, although both were minimum wage) and was thousands of dollars in debt NOT because of poor luck but because of stupid choices. When he decided to start dating, he told me he had been getting drunk with a friend and looked so miserable, the friend said, "Man, you need to get yourself a woman. You look like shit." When he was at rock bottom, that's when he decided he needed a mommy-bandmaid to make it all better. We are literally seen as bandaids and servants to them. I'm not going to get into all of it, but let's just say he stayed a hateful, selfish and demeaning individual throughout even when his circumstances greatly improved. Do not try to "build" a man or bet on potential. It doesn't work that way. He's either kind and competent or he's not.

has anyone here followed the 3 months before having sex with someone rule from fds?

I always thought I'd not wait too long before dating a guy to sleep with him. just long enough that I felt comfortable with him and was able to feel we were getting along well. I couldn't see myself being able to wait that long, especially if he really turned me on. I'm an older virgin too (past 30, jesus) I've romantacised the idea of sex for the longest time but the reality is most sexual encounters with men result in them not really giving a shit if you enjoy it or get off and the last thing I want is to be pumped and dumped. I've waited this long to find a guy who'll respect me, not that 3 months is some magic amount of time to weed out guys who want to pump and dump but I do think it'll definitely help. reading about the 3 month rule on fds has opened my eyes and I definitely think I'll apply it to my dating (I'm just starting to date using OLD and my last date was many years ago)

No. 185529

I think it's generally a good idea. I've had two ltrs and the first I waited over 6 months, the second I hopped into bed on the 2nd date lol. The first one was absolutely useless and terrible in bed, the 2nd was terrible at first but I was able to "train" him to be okay-ish. He still ended up being a useless sack of shit, so eh. Three months really isn't that long a period of time but it's too long for most men wanting an easy hookup, so at least it weeds some out. I also believe sexual compatibility is of prime importance so you don't want to wait forever. Basically, and I believe FDS agrees, the main goal is to explicitly confirm with the man that you are in an exclusive relationship at that point and he has acted flawlessly in all other interactions. Of course everyone has their weaknesses, I'm saying he has to be perfect, but like… occassionally leaving dishes out, okay. Revealing misogynistic attitudes, acting aggressive and manipulative, flaking on you, not okay. It's still not going to guarantee the dude isn't garbage, but it will definitely give you a better shot at things.

No. 185798

This is probably a moid but anyway I’ll answer. First thing, you didn’t mention it but one huge misconception is that “FDS is just black women”. I have seen this claim so many times when seeing scrotes mention FDS. Moids always talk with authority when they don’t know shit and that includes assuming that they know FDS women are black because a lot of women there use AAVE twitter lingo.
Second in my time there as a former mod I feel like lot of bitterness exists because of the connotation around FDS outside of the community on the internet. FDS is commonly compared to PUA manosphere ideology when the worst of the actual ideology of FDS is just pettiness at most. The “bitterness” there stems from the outrage when women create standards because as women we’re are not allowed to have any standards, it’s always “GIVE A GUY A CHANCE!!!!” as another anon said. Men on the internet brand FDS as a bunch of gold diggers and “dinner stealing thots”. They spread blatant lies about FDS like it’s encouraging gold digging or is comparable to The Red Pill, this much is just infuriating because the actual message itself is just for women to get some standards. The number of men who hate lurk or even post there is way bigger than you’d think but you don’t even see a lot of moidposts on there because the automod FDS has in place is really good in that regard. Men are obsessed with hating it and trying to ruin it by getting the subreddit banned. The reason that they’re constantly saying “to all the scrotes lurking” is because scrotes ARE lurking and are commenting as well. You just don’t see how many moids there are who comment and post unless you’re a mod.

Jfl pickmes are so self destructive and desperate for any male validation especially from fucking 4channers. How hard is it to understand that women are entitled to their standards and should know their worth, and that there is no issue at all if they never find a man and to be happy while single as well?

No. 187475

Both, you can see people both shitting and defending FDS, and I think most people fall somewhere in the middle. There's like one ex-mod who comments here, and people sometimes crosspost their cringiest content.
To add something to the topic, it seems like they made a "no-meme monday" now to cut back on tiktok and twitter cap posting. It seems like a better idea than posting half naked dudes.

I'm not sure which sub the poster found this on but the fact that men like this not only exist but openly post about their incestuous fantasies is disturbing in the extreme. I feel so sorry for their children and hope they never have to find out about their depraved fetishes or actually have to suffer assault at the hands of their own fathers.

No. 189577

This whole thing is fucked up obviously, but I can’t get over how the guy in the OP says he called his fwb by his daughter’s name and “hope she heard,” what the fuck lmao. He calls her a friend so presumably she was aware of the daughter’s name. What a bizarre situation for that poor lady. Imagine being fwb with some seemingly ~hardworking single dad~ friend only to have him reveal some incest fetish for his own child, like wtf do you even do?

No. 189579

Why post this in a dating strategy sub? This is more like pinkpill and female celibacy fuel than some sort of LVM material for straight women on what to avoid. But hey at least it'll help some women with realizing men are actually a waste of time and that being on FDS or trying to date men as a woman is fucking pointless kek.
If you're trying to date men then this kind of pinkpilling is going against your cause. You can't exactly identify scrotes who are going to rape their daughters, it's often the worst and also the most perfect seeming men who do this shit. And also all of the men in between. Again, you really can't identify them, you're just guessing. So just don't date men at all and stop wasting time on dating apps where all of the men, literally all of them, are shit. Even the cute bf you want will have some sort of shitty sexist behavior, like habitual porn usage or habitual sexist behaviors like questioning women or being an annoying fuck who is obsessed w hearing himself talk.
If only Reddit didn't ban r/pinkpillfeminism then this would have blended in very nicely over there.

No. 189586

I agree with you. Posting the most degen shit from reddit is not going to help women date men, it will only make them more and more jaded which I doubt is an attractive trait in “HVM” eyes. Imo if you want relationships with men, you have turn a blind eye to a lot of shit they say and do as a collective to stay sane and happy

No. 189587

Right? I had to laugh at the absurdity of it, this retard whispered because he knew it was gross and yet he also wanted to get caught like some sort of naughty kid stealing a cookie. It was a sort of psychotic game for him. The contrast between very intentionally doing something sick and yet being coy about it is the epitome of unhinged scrote.

I hear you, FDS has become the pinkpill refuge in a lot of ways but also I do think it tangentially helps women who want to date. We’re so trained to give men the “benefit of the doubt” but in reality they need to be cut off at the first sign of poor behavior. I can very easily imagine a woman posting in some relationship sub “I thought I heard my FwB say his daughter’s name while we were fucking, is this weird?” and all the replies would be “you probably imagined it” or “he’s such a committed dad I’m sure his mind just drifted to his beloved child while he was raw dogging you.” Lol. Fucking insanity. I mean they shared the snail woman story where after all that she was still saying “he was just stressed and really loves me!!” The level of self delusion is unreal and I think it’s beneficial to hear things like this right from the horse’s mouth so when you get an inkling something is off, you should know you’re 100% justified in getting the fuck out because it’s probably even worse than you realize. They don’t advocate for OLD either, advice is basically to do your thing and potentially meet someone in your normal life, otherwise don’t waste time on men. No point in literally commodifying yourself on the meat market for a bunch of desperate, low effort scrubs.

No. 189593

I mean isn't this what their "always vet" rule is about. Like a HVM is a HVM, until he is not. If a man stops caring about his wife/family 5 years in, it doesn't really matter that he was in the past, if he's not willing to work on it anymore or turns out to be a sexual degenerate.

No. 189594

Isn't it obvious FDS has become a thinly veiled pinkpill/gc sub in addition to dating advice? They do just enough damage control to keep it from being banned but it needs the plausible deniability of being about dating to keep it above board. It's an open secret that most users are terven radfem types and many people on there admit they don't date or have any intention to.

I'm not mad about it at all.

No. 189769

this is a problem that comes with the sub insisting you have to be a career woman to be a woman of value. I don't agree with women who shame pregnancy and mothers. There's literally nothing wrong with wanting to have kids or build a family, I can't go in a female-only space without these kidshate schizos. It's not this orwellian nightmare they describe, your body doesn't get so fucked up post-pregnancy as you think, it's just some skin, have a proper diet and it'll be fine

No. 189792

I understand not wanting kids or being scared of pregnancy, and I think it's better to know the risks before. But reddit exaggerates it so much you'd tink 90% of mothers are crippled or had a near-death experience because of the selection bias.

It seems that when FDS is describing a "LWM" it's just men that don't fit certain masculine standards: a narrow beauty ideal + the passion/ambition measured by money paradigm. But when they defend the concept of LVM, they purely describe it as antisocial behavior. I don't even understand the concept, why would a man who does not attract you be a low value male? Wouldn't they just be not-partner-material or whatever? Why are they unworthy as a male if they don't attract you? It reminds me of how TRP types evaluate womens humanity on how suitable they find them sexually. But I shouldn't be surprised by this since "the manosphere does it too" seems to be the goto FDS defense in 2021.

I don’t get this thinking, there are tons of threads that say HVM doesn’t equal “rich hot guy.” You can search for HVM on the subreddit and there are lots of examples of what the users call HVM, ie being supportive of your interests, planning dates, making time for their gf, considerate/caring stuff like that. Someone low value is the opposite, doesn’t support your interests, doesn’t make plans, always late, etc. I met tons of guys like that in my early 20s, it was draining as hell. How is calling out that kind of shitty behavior just like TRP?

No. 190980

I obviously don't know this poster's history, but she also says even receiving "just because" flowers would be nice, which isn't asking for much. I think she brings up the jewelry and trips because apparently her friends/sister/other women she knows have been talking about their partners doing that sort of thing. Sure, every guy can't afford that level of gift, but you can still buy nice jewelry for a moderate price or take your partner to a cute Airbnb over the weekend. It's showing thought and making an effort over the most bare minimum thing possible with a card and cheap meal. I used to spoil the shit out of my ex and I've never been super well off, but I was still able to buy him things extremely catered to his interests, take him to nice restaurants, and bring him on trips through credit card point bonuses and saving. It's embarassing looking back. Not that I made the effort, but the fact that he reciprocated to that extent maybe 3 times over the course of years. My friends and family did far more thoughtful things for me during that period. I would expect a similar level of investment (doesn't have to be perfectly equal financially, but putting in that mental/emotional work) if I were ever to be in a relationship again.

No. 191035

Nothing she said indicates she expects a rich man or considers it a necessity for being a HVM. A man with average earnings can save up for a thoughtful gift, an impoverished man should not be dating until he's financially stable.

It's extremely obvious she's upset about not being spoiled because she believes that men only spend money on women they love, therefore the men she's dated didn't love her enough to do so. And she's right lbr, though it's more about the thought and effort put into the gesture than the actual money involved.

No. 191046

Seriously, what’s too much about wanting some nice “just because” gifts from your partner? My ex wasn’t rich but he still bought me some cute jewelry and other gifts without needing an occasion. One piece was from Etsy and only like $20, but it was from my favorite game and a very thoughtful present. It doesn’t take money to be thoughtful. If someone is really invested in you, they tend to show it with small actions like that, like remembering your favorite things or getting you considerate presents, not just the bare minimum “teddy bear I saw at Walmart a day before Valentine’s Day” presents.

No. 191076

Nta but this. My ex bought me a quality necklace (~$100) not long after the one I wore for years before broke. That was the only present I remember because everything else he gifted had such insignificant thought put into it.
When it comes to gift giving, cost doesn’t matter. Women like to be thought of. Men who insist otherwise (“women only want my money!”) are just so selfish on top of being fucking lazy that they’ll generalize and lie about women as a monolith rather than admit that they can’t be bothered to care about their spouse. It’s depressing to think of how much effort I put into gifts vs how much effort my ex put into my gifts. Tbh if I could have had a gift made by the other person then I’d choose that as it shows that it took a lot of effort/time/thought means way more to someone compared to a necklace or a handbag and so on. I used to rack my brain trying to think of something that would be super useful and meaningful. My ex used to have no ideas and would draw blanks on what I liked; it was downright offensive when in comparison I could name so many things that he liked and point out so many of his quirks. My ex was my bf for years yet was regurgitating the same lines, buying promotional sale presents that are seemingly impersonal and have no reasoning behind them, and just overall being a hollow empty shell of “I love you”s. And my ex’s actual profession was being a creative so the fact that he couldn’t formulate meaningful words or put together a thoughtful present for one day of the year says a lot. Essentially that it’s not an inability to do these things imo, it’s the lack of expectations for men to do them for their female partners.
Anyway sorry for sperg, I agree that it’s the thought and the effort that counts overall.

So did you ignore those post parts on purpose when were giving your $20 and $100 examples? My post was a reply to the claim that hvm is not expected to be wealthy, yet there are posters that expect actual expensive gifts. I was not making a point about how women shouldn't expect anything, but if you want expensive gifts, then understand that only certain men can afford them. Let's be real, we are not talking about a couple hundred dollars here.
And since she mentioned designer goods specifically, then cost does matter for her.

No. 191136

The point in the screencap is that guys who are really invested in their gfs/wives will spoil them within their financial reason. They will look for thoughtful, nice presents, and yes that includes designer goods if they can afford it. If your bf needed a new wallet and you had the means, would you get him a nice designer wallet that will last a long time or some crap from the discount aisle? Most women I know have bought their boyfriends nice watches, wallets, electronics, etc. It’s not crazy to want that same effort and consideration in return.

No. 191154

Jesus christ moid make yourself less obvious please. Her bfs didn’t even buy flowers for her. FLOWERS! My ex who bought the $100 necklace was a broke college student too, so if he could do that then I’m sure a guy who has a salary of $60k+ could spend <$1k on a vacation getaway for him and his gf.
Jfc why are phalloids so obsessed with us to be posting in here? Or even on that fake FDS subreddit spinoff, it’s so embarrassing how the supposedly superior sex is so obsessed with us that they can’t leave us alone. You yourself are so obsessed with proving your own point (fds are golddiggers) that you fail to pretend to see the obvious (OP hasn’t even gotten damn flowers) and thus you fail at any attempt to empathize with farmers as women. Work on your LARPing skills before posting here again.

Sidenote but if I was a man I surely wouldn’t be stalking the few female-centered communities and policing what they can and can’t say. It’s a whole new level of pathetic that women can’t even come close to. Honestly I think you should just off yourself. Now if any of you do take my advice then don’t kill the women of your family or your children when you do it.
