The 6 Types of Oneitis

oneitis

Maybe you have heard the term “Oneitis” before. This is the natural tendency to get caught up on one girl. It obviously affects both sexes, as well. I was with a girl recently who described her mind as being completely invaded by a bad experience with a guy she was starting to date. “He started […]

How to Develop From a Pickup Artist to a Real Seducer

pickup artist

(The following is a guest post by Sebastian at Global Seducers). What do you think when you hear the expressions Pickup Artist and Seducer? You probably think that both of these expressions describe men who approach women on a regular basis, who have many dates and who end up in bed with a lot of […]

Why Chemistry is Not Sexual Attraction

sexual attraction

Many people, especially women, mistake chemistry for sexual attraction. Have you ever had a woman say to you, “We just don’t have chemistry together, sorry”? The truth is that sexual attraction and chemistry are two different animals. Attraction is, explicitly speaking, if you make her wet. Chemistry is how well you get along with somebody […]

The Truth About What Women Want (It’s Wladimir Klitschko)

Wladimir Klitschko

Wladimir Klitschko is a Ukrainian boxer who looks like a villain in a 90s Steven Segal action flick. There’s a lot of buzz about him lately because he recently spawned a baby with beautiful actress Hayden Panettiere. I found myself reading this headline and wondering how often we see highest status females, like Hayden, going […]

The Merits of the MGTOW Movement (Why Women Should Be De Prioritized)

mgtow

MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) is a loosely-knit movement that certainly draws a fair amount of criticism. It concerns men withdrawing from the sexual marketplace to pursue their own lives, independent of pressure to pickup girls, get laid, or get married. With articles like the brilliant “The Sexodus” on Breitbart, MGTOW is beginning to […]

Can you put serendipity in a bottle? Developers of the new Happn app believe it’s possible. Banking on the Tinderr dating app craze, Happn has created a very different approach (literally speaking). Instead of anonymously swiping left or right, Happn connects users in the physical proximity of one another. It’s designed so that if a guy […]

How to Be a Gentleman By Not Being a Gentleman

how to be a gentleman

Traditionally, men are taught by their elders how to be a gentleman. This brings to mind various nostalgic early 20th century ideas of opening doors, practicing some form of chivalry, and being a polite, well-rounded man. There are many ways that “being a gentleman” is an adage that bothers me. It implies automatically that men […]

Are You An Alpha Male or Just An Insecure Dude?

fake alpha male

Alpha male is a popular buzzword these days (I even wrote a book dissecting the topic). However, let’s be clear that alpha behavior has little in common with overly-macho, aggressive or insecure attitudes. The very concept of “alpha” is also shaky. In social situations, we can observe men with high-levels of social prowess and charisma. Comparably, […]

French Feminism vs American Feminism

Editor’s Note: On Developed Man, I’ve tried to focus on self-development and avoid the fiery debate across the Manosphere and men’s rights sites that point the finger at “feminism” as being responsible for men’s problems. However, undeniably gender issues do affect men’s lives, and how women view their other-half greatly influences our romantic prospects. A […]

How Generalizing is Stupid Behavior (Response to Return of Kings)

return of kings

What does it take to be a good man? A lot of things, but most importantly it’s about avoiding certain behaviors that harm you. There’s a natural human tendency to create a false equation. It’s like an error in our operating systems; a mental glitch that was never fixed by nature. It goes: observation = […]

Huge Mistakes From Yesteryear’s PUA Movement

pua movement

I don’t think anybody likes the term “PUA” (pickup artist) anymore because it’s ridiculous. But, I still see guys using PUA principles in an effort to become better men or cure long romantic dry spells. Some of these behaviors still crop up even if the “PUA” culture is mostly on the way out. In this […]

Hello, Developed Man readers, My friend (and contributor to our sister site, Developed Life), Arturo has undertaken a project that involves exploring cultural differences in dating standards. This will be done through a funny YouTube series that will debut late this year: American Love in Prague. For years, a well-known secret has been that lonely […]

The Terrible Temptation of Bragging

bragging

First of all, I have no idea who this is a picture of. He was on the Wikimedia creative commons page for the keyword “arrogant” and he definitely looks the part. However, I have to offer my utmost apologies to whoever this guy is who I just made into the personification of a “bragger”. One […]

A Complete Guide to Approach Anxiety

approach anxiety

I promised I would write about approach anxiety one of these days. So, we’ve finally arrived at that point. This term is rooted squarely in the rise of the seduction and “advice for meeting girls” community; but may have existed before then in the world of cold-sales. In a similar, but less severe fashion, people […]

Let’s face it, the world is kind of a shitty place sometimes. And, the reason is largely because of the people who inhabit it. Fortunately, there’s good news: a few personality changes and philosophical reconsiderations can create a new chapter for any man; immediately creating a brighter future for everybody. These behaviors could mean, for […]
