Online Dating Heralds the Apocalypse for Western Men

aaaaargh

I’ll preface this by saying I have no affiliation with the site “Sluthate” which appears to be another misguided offshoot of “PUAHate” – which was shut down after one of their members, a guy we know named Elliot Rodger, went on a killing spree in southern California.

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.Continue Reading

How to Be a Gentleman By Not Being a Gentleman

how to be a gentleman

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.Continue Reading

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.Continue Reading

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 = generalization.Continue Reading

Brave Guys Needed for YouTube Reality TV Show

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 guys move toward regions like central or east Europe to level the dating game to their favor. Countless stories are abound that feature guys who have found beautiful romantic partners in distant countries.

There are a lot of theories for why this is (many of which I outline in a booklet I recently wrote, Global Dating), but it seems to be that the dating arena in the United States is, no matter how you slice it or how much “game” you try to learn, always going to be somewhat flawed.

The YouTube show will satirically explore what it takes for American expats to become Czech Republic bachelors; looking for love in a city renown for beautiful women.

Arturo is looking for American guys aged 18-30 to participate; you must be down to go to Prague, to not be camera shy, and down to participate in a fun project (and maybe meet some lovely ladies in the process). Digital nomads and lifestyle designers who like to roam are always a welcome addition; as you could make this a stop along your travels. Shooting is scheduled for this fall through winter.

To apply, leave a comment on this thread, e-mail me or just contact Arturo directly by liking the American Love in Prague Facebook page and leaving a comment or sending a message.

The Terrible Temptation of 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”.Continue Reading

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.
