Five Minutes Of Alpha

There’s a reason why Silvio Berlusconi won the first ever Chateau Alpha Male Cage Match by a whopping length + girth. This paesan is a ladykiller. Further cementing Silvio’s alpha status, Ray Sawhill (formerly of 2BLowhards) sent along this article about a former Miss Montenegro beauty queen who admitted having a two year affair with Silvio. She met him two years ago when she was 18 and he was… 73. And how does Katarina feel about the age gap?

She said: ‘In love age is not important – an extraordinary person like him could be 100 years old, it would have no effect on me, he would have still struck me.’

Any regular of this blog will not be surprised by her admission. Chicks dig power above all other male attractiveness traits. Male power truly is distilled aphrodisia. A woman will present for a powerful, charming man as quickly as a man will spring a boner for a hot, young, slender, naked babe. Of course, her statement needs a qualifier to retain accuracy: In love age is not important… if you are an alpha male with compensating attractiveness traits. Plenty of boring betas grind out their wheezy decades inspiring no love in any younger women.

And for the cynics, I have no doubt Katarina loves (note: I did not say “loved”) Silvio, to the depth of her soul. Hers is real love, not fake golddigger love one so often sees when a hot chick marries a rich beta. Women’s love circuits are wired differently than men’s; a woman’s love will erupt and ensconce an apex male like Silvio, and it will be a genuine love, in much the same way a man’s love will rush out from him unbidden for a beautiful young woman.

One of the comments from a female commenter is particularly enlightening.

The allure of a powerful man like Berlusconi is something people are quick to discount unless they’ve been in the presence of one. I had an affair with a very powerful, high-profile (unmarried) politician when he was 65 and I was 18. Age didn’t matter because he was electric. He knew everything and was energectic in a way I’d never seen in boys my age, and his appetite for life was insatiable. Decades later as a long-married wife and mother I still remember him often, and quite fondly.

Five minutes of alpha floods the female brain with pleasant memories quicker than decades of beta.* I wonder how her husband would feel knowing that, despite decades of shared marital moments and children’s first words, she still warmly recalls an affair she had with a 65 year old alpha male at the ripe peak of her attractiveness? Hallmark doesn’t make cards for remembrances like that.

You don’t have to be a prime minister to capture the hearts of younger women (although it helps). I advise aging men to keep that spark of adventure they had when they were teen striplings. Do whatever it takes to avoid the long, slow surrender — the Barcalounger betrayal of your masculine birthright — and strive to maintain a sense of wonder. A dash of immaturity goes a long way toward cultivating a youthful frame of mind, which is a necessary prerequisite to winning the hearts of young women.

So raise a glass to Silvio, a refreshing anachronism in an increasingly sterile West. If you were banging babes like this…

…at the age of 73, you’d have this…

…shit-eating grin plastered on your face, too.

*A similar, albeit attenuated, feeling occurs in men, when our fondest memories veer all the way back to our first tender kiss or first intimate penetration. This memory exerts its power in men for a different reason than women’s memories do with their alpha flings; men’s first loves are often girls in their mid to late teens (or perhaps early to mid-20s for the late bloomers) when their feminine beauty and mannerism radiates at its absolute brightest. Searing beauty leaves a scorching imprint on the male brain. However, the recollection of such memories are usually less stable and permanent for men than they are for women recalling times spent with alpha males, because men who have even a modicum of experience with women have enjoyed many, many years of prime pussy, thus diluting the impact of their earliest memories.

Women, on the other hand, will often go decades in the beta wilderness trying to recapture the feeling they had with their alpha loves, hopping from one cad cock to another. Men are simply less interchangeable as lovers for women than women are interchangeable as lovers for men. It is for this reason that a fling with an alpha male will ruin a woman for all future men. A man, in contrast, is rarely ruined for all future women when he has a fling with a hot chick, unless he suffers a status and confidence drop so precipitous that the kinds of women he attracts are two or more points lower on the beauty ranking scale than his best past lover.

    • “Alpha” doesn’t mean “good person” or “bad person”. It’s a label related to socially displayed behaviors that give the impression that one is a powerful male.

      In this case, it’s about packaging, not about being a bum. You’ll see bums who display a lot of these characteristics because it gives them the social power that allows them to be bums. But the social behaviors they show only work because they are indicators of the opposite.

      The right attitude to take should be: “This lowlife gets laid because he learned how to display himself. Well, I’m a good man, and I’m going to learn the same stuff so I can be more effective in life

      And just for the record, the Italians have an enormous amount of power.

    • Certainly a generalization, but I do see where he was going with that and I agree. If after your encounter with a dominant, electrifying, alpha male you were only ill-fated to encounter lowly, beta males who paled in comparison, because you will ALWAYS compare them to him, how will one ever be able to achieve genuine happiness and contentment in a relationship. I reckon it would be rather difficult. Self delusion may do the trick though.

      The year of my boyfriend and I’s falling out was absolutely depressing. I didn’t even want to talk to men who weren’t him. I was beyond devastated and above all, entirely emotionally unavailable and numb to the touch of another man. Mind you, I’ve never experienced anything like that before since I was always reasonably quick to move on after a relationship/fling. But that is because I’ve simply never experienced a man of his caliber before.

      That one year apart from him inspired so much soul searching, self optimizing, and improvement that I became a MUCH better woman as a result of it. Inside and out. How many men are capable of evoking such desire to change in a woman? I’m just saying.

      • Yeah, I’m highly critical of the idea of making sweeping generalizations about the mating strategies of all women. Assuming that all women like the same thing is a great approximation if you just want to get laid, I’ll give you that. Act alpha, get pussy.

        However from here the approximation begins to fall apart. Some women are pair bonders, especially those from genetic backgrounds that have experienced long-term selection pressures to be successful in an economically specialized society. Economic specialization allows beta males to provide material goods to women in excess of what one would expect from a small share in an alpha male, and such “good girls” exist who instinctively won’t cheat on a beta. They’re usually nerdier, have unathletic nerdy children, often sons (see Trivers-Willard) due to high parental investment. This is not simply an environmental or a cultural thing, or a product of learning or upbringing. It is a genotype.

        Meanwhile, other women, especially those from non-economically specialized societies where banging an alpha was a good strategy, will ride the carousel till they get ugly. Their genetic strategy doesn’t really worry about long-term consequences. Life fast, die young, leave beautiful children (often low investment slutty daughters).

        Evo psych can’t provide proof of this thesis (yet), but anecdotally this shit runs in families. Slutty moms begat slutty daughters, and vice versa.

        In short, don’t presume that all women feel the same way about alpha males.

    • Berlusconi is alpha because he’s powerful. Generally speaking, extremely powerful people get there because they worked extremely hard, something that requires a certain amount of betatude in ones early years. Thus, I would not be at all surprised to hear about him carrying forward a few old habits.

      All the same, the guy practically owned Italy. You’re an idiot if you don’t think that kind of power is an aphrodisiac.

      • That’s not entirely true. Beta take far more risks than alphas, which is what you’d expect. As an alpha, ie head of the tribe, you’re focused on maintaining your status. The rewards for doing crazy shit are smaller. Whereas for a beta, the marginal utility of an extra increment is much higher if it’s likely to get them a status rise.

        Insecurity drives people in the early part of many careers, especially high risk ones like fighter pilots, special forces soldiers and extreme sports athletes. And math and physics.

        The military example is especially interesting. They start out quite beta, and within a few years become very alpha. Not many bald fighter pilots. This in turn necessitated a quick turnover of personnel as they lose motivation, and older fighter pilots are quickly shuttled into training and leadership. Not every profession is dominated by dick swinging alphas.

    Alphas may trump Betas, but children trump both (except for psychotic chicks who leave their families for escaped felons).

    As for Silvio (didn’t he use hookers escorts), it’s an easy to follow checklist: 1) Be Italian; 2) Be a billionaire telecommunications tycoon; 3) Become Prime Minister.

    So if “Being Italian” approximates the game component, Silvio can also compensate for being short, fat and ugly by being rich, powerful and evil.

    Wealth and high status jobs are such obvious attraction triggers they’re known by most dumbass men too busy playing video games.

Indeed, it’s entirely possible that there already are gold-digging females that truly love their rich beta prey (consciously).

  21. I think this post captures the differences between men and women more accurately than almost any other site I’ve read, and I think it also explains why you see so many young men deciding to “drop out” of the dating market.

    When a woman is easily attracted to a 75-year-old man, you know that a man has to have more than luck on his side to be attractive to women. I think what the editor misses, though, is that it is HARD to be attractive to women. You don’t just wake up, walk out the door, have a nice conversation with a girl, and suddenly “click” to start a lifelong relationship. No, to be with someone who weighs a reasonable amount, you have to constantly be on guard – making sure that you aren’t being too “nice,” making sure other men don’t demonstrate that they are more confident than you are, making most or all of the plans, and taking the lead in physical affections. If you don’t, then the girl leaves for someone like Silvio.

    Perhaps some people feel differently, but while the outcome is good, it’s just not FUN doing all this stuff required to get the outcome. It seems to me that the men who CNN anchors criticize for deciding to spend a lot of time playing video games are making a rational decision that the potential gain, while great, simply isn’t worth the constant vigilance required to remain attractive to women.

    Heck, I work ten hours a day, then work out for another hour, then spend an hour on the road, and then spend another two doing chores and cooking meals. After 14 hours, I’m just too exhausted to worry about whether I am being “cocky and funny” enough to stop her from jumping ship to older men who have a lot of money or power. It’s no wonder that other men realize this, whether consciously or subconsciously, and get fed up with it.

While I find the feminine mind on its own to be one of the most pleasing things in existence, the female whose mind I am attracting then herself becomes extremely lame, unattractive and a turn-off based on the fact that she responds to the actual games and methods that will end up working on her.

      It’s as though the process itself disqualifies her, you’re witnessing the same female who moments ago was so cool now becoming a mentally defective cow before your very eyes as she’s duped by the gross and unflattering rulebook. It is HARD to be attractive to women, but even when it works I suppose deep-down I might not like the kind of person that it attracts.

      So memories of experiences from a better bygone is really all women have; for the entirety of their adult life. Unless they have enough children to keep them occupied. Kids are the true lasting female happiness drug, as they’ll love mommy regardless of whether she’s sagging a bit or not, getting her past the 25 year hump when hubby is hot and she is not. Then, by the time the kids are out of the house, both her and hubby are asexual geezers, content to live vicariously through their children.

Since women are a lot less malleable and compromising when it comes to their preferences, whereas men adjust theirs to what they can reasonably and consistently attract (for the most part), once a woman has an encounter with a man of high caliber, she doesn’t even want to see or talk to anyone who is below his level. Even if it means succumbing to celibacy for some time.

      Men are a lot more pragmatic and realistic, although they may miss a beautiful women whom they have encountered, they won’t fall into celibacy because of it. Their need for sexual satisfaction is a lot more urgent, more necessary. and sooner or later will go back to attracting beautiful women as per usual.

      Of course women are a lot more in the dark when it comes to who they can reasonably attain for a commitment as opposed to who’s willing to use them as a nice, warm hole resulting from the fact that men are lot more likely to fuck below their own HPV. It’s all too often that a woman will go through her best years rejecting men against one guy who really gave her the tingles, but would have never given her a ring.

  28. “Anonymous” who describes Italy as a country of moochers is full of it.

    The failure of the European economies is the failure of socialism. In all these countries they have run out of other people’s money and no one will lend them anymore. Berlusconi is the only non-socialist premier in Europe and the only one to have an intelligent and courageous strategy for dealing with the debt crisis. Right now, the Germans, French, Spanish, Greeks, all want to distract their populace by casting aspersions on Italy and Berlusconi, the man the socialists hate above all others.

    As an ex-banker and someone who trades in the markets I can tell you that Italy is not the problem. In fact if you look at the liabilities that France will be exposed to after Greece restructures, then Italy is looking damn good. If you really want to see what is making the Europeans’ blood run cold, look at the state of the Spanish economy, where the hard-left government of that imbecile Zapertero is ruining the country. When Spain crashes the EU will break up with the sound of a nuclear explosion.

    If you want to understand how Alpha Berlusconi is and do not trust the utterances of the women he has mastered, look at how he treats the socialist old media. His confidence and his contempt for them marks him out as an authentic man, assured of his own value and purpose. Its simple, men who criticise Berlusconi are betas who are angered by his power. In my view that includes the other European premiers.

        “Or is it a complex ecosystem supported by some unknown, concentrated source of leisure energy?”

        testosterone + joi de vivre and a beautiful climate that produces amazing food. The Italian ideal of ‘abbondanza,’ roughly meaning richness, beauty, abundance, excellence–this is lifestyle game at its finest.

        Take it a step further—getting someone else to pay for your lifestyle game–that’s the essence of alpha. Bailing out another country’s lifestyle game–that’s beta, to the bone.

  33. “It is for this reason that a fling with an alpha male will ruin a woman for all future men.”

    I beg to differ. A woman is not ruined after her experience with an alpha male. She is opened up (no pun intended) to a more contemporary notion of a “man” and sure – tingles and all – it’s wonderful.
    What you don’t seem to understand is that female pride doesn’t allow the man to remain “alpha” in the female psyche for very long. Our “hamsters” as you like to call them, or whatever it is you like to call them, will rationalize any situation so as to preserve our dignity. After the heated love affair/fling is over, that man is de-bunked into a history of assholes who may still turn a woman on sexually… but will never receive the amount of love he was once given at the beginning of the affair.
    Many women, whom you fail to represent here, learn from their ignorance in choosing arrogant men and start valuing gentlemen. Here is the main point in why you are wrong. While you are right in arguing that women are more prone to going for arrogant men (not arguing there), many women learn the poor outcomes of those relationships (waste of time for their biological clocks, heartbreak so on and so forth) and only then grow to appreciate the nice guys. Is it sad? Yes. Do men have reason to be upset? Yes. However, you can’t generalize that all women will be ruined after this. I’m in my 20’s and have learned this lesson well enough. You don’t have to be an old and no longer attractive woman to go for nice men. Hopefully that leaves some of you guys out there with at least a bit of bittersweet hope.

Just speaking for the unaccounted examples here. Do men really go for the good girls? No. They go for them when they’re in their 30’s and they’re ready to settle down.

      • Try this sometime:

        Find a woman who is being pumped by an alpha, and say something bad about him.

        Then, ditto for a guy who is screwing a slut.

        What you’ll find, is the woman defending the cad, while the guy laughs at the slut. Almost every single time.

        That should tell you all you need to know about differences in levels of emotional investment, hence the difference in degree to which repeated such experiences are emotionally desensitizing.

        Absent morality, men are built to thrive on repeated pump and dumps; while every time a woman is dumped, she loses. And repeated loss takes it’s toll. A woman trading in one guy for a higher status one is different, as it’s in her nature to seek out just that. But only if the higher status guy sticks around. Going from a relationship with a 6, to being pumped by an 8, to being dumped by him and alone, is a net 6 loss. For a guy, the numbers are better though of as additive: 6+8=14. Particularly since the 6 will be even hotter for him for bagging an 8, once the 8 finds herself some higher SMV cad.

        That’s not cruel or double standards. It’s just how the sexes are wired. If convincing yourself things are different makes you feel better, please go ahead. It’s not my goal to make you or anyone else feel miserable. By the sound of it, you hardly need my help for that. But neither should it be your goal, to spout off nonsense to younger girls, leading them to make choices that ultimately only serve to hurt them. Which, in the long run, is all being pumped and dumped by some alpha will ever do.

        Alphas will go for the youngest, hottest, and most virginal mates and get them when they are older. If they want. When they are young they can also do this. If they want. You are right at the same time you are so very wrong.

        Young girls will compete for the same small pool of men, they will slut it up for those desirable fellows. They will however not debase themselves so far as to let a beta drop a fuck in them for any reason related to love. Those young virgins didn’t have to give it up to an alpha cad, there are always nice guy betas trying to weasel their way in with compliments and a constant presence.

        You can try and turn the argument back around and put it on young alphas, but you can’t apply it to young betas. Nice guys didn’t force nice girls to fuck bad boys. Nice girls didn’t force bad boys to fuck slutty girls. Bad boys didn’t force slutty girls to put out and cause nice girls to compete with them using sex. Slutty girls did force nice guys to turn into bad boys to get laid.

        But the worst part of it is, it’s not just the sex that women shower alphas with. “Five minutes of alpha” like this article and the posts mostly confirm, is that the nice girls will forever love the bad boy over the nice guy. L-O-V-E. A woman may devalue the man over time, but she’ll never forget his name, how they met, or why he was “special” enough to fuck. The hamster rationalized itself into fucking him and it may make him less, but it will never make him nothing.

    • Essentially what you’re saying is that some women have a pair-bonding life strategy. If there’s one thing evolutionary psychology has taught us, it’s that assuming free will exists gets you nowhere, so you might as well assume that your decision to date “nice men” (ie betas, if high class ones) was entirely am instinctual calculation. Read the book “Incognito” for a better elaboration on free will.

      Generally, my theory is that certain people have a package of genetic traits which suit an alpha lifestyle (in men, muscles, social skills, good at sports that represent hunting and warfare). These people have an easier time becoming alpha. Meanwhile, others have a package of genetic traits that’s better suited for being beta (ie nerds) and that these people will only grudgingly become alpha.

      This state of affairs has only come about thanks to economic specialization in primitive tribes. For example, the extreme end of beta traits is autism spectrum disorder, a disease that is not present in hunter gatherer tribes.

      In essence then, these different packages of traits designed to exploit different social niches has created a speciation pressure in humans. Thus, some women genuinely are happy to date betas. These women are probably more intelligent, have less social skills and more technical skills, and are more likely to have autistic children when they mate with other nerds. And they are far happier in a pair bonded relationship.

      Having said that, nerd (beta genetic strategy) males are still perfectly capable of becoming alpha, with a lot of work. I’m in this group, and I’ve found that while I’m strongly attracted to the idea of a relationship, I’m also not happy unless I can sleep around due to my learned alpha traits. Bill Clinton is probably a perfect example of this set of traits.

      Something to think about…

    • See, where a lot of people go wrong on this forum is through an incomplete understanding of evolutionary psychology.

      There are two factors you have to consider here. One, that free will effectively does not exist. Sure, on the small scale, it does. But you don’t choose to be attracted to nice men. At some point, you brain has calculated that it’s time to get a beta, something that many women’s brains never do. See a book called “Incognito”, by Eagleman (I think) for a more detailed explanation of this.

      And two: people are not in fact evolved for the small group hunter gatherer society that everybody references. Not completely. See “The 10,000 Year Explosion”, a great book by a pair of geneticists from Utah for a more detailed explanation of this. They’re the guys that came up with the evolutionary explanation of Ashkenazi intelligence.

      The end result of this is that many men and women have become adapted for a life in the beta niche of large scale economically specialized societies. These are the “nice women” who don’t mind pair bonding with a beta of which you speak.

      Sure, in a hunter gatherer society, the best life strategy is to be big and strong and have great social skills and be alpha. You won’t find many nerdy Africans. Autism (an extreme nerd genetic trait, especially prevalent in Silcon Valley) is unknown amongst populations as diverse as the Canadian Inuit, Australian Aborigines and Brazilian Indigenous people, all non- economically specialized societies.

      People with such technologically oriented brains tend to be smaller, weaker pair bonders who aren’t good at sports like football which approximate hunting or warfare. That’s not culture. That’s genetics. They only grudgingly become alpha, their instincts suspicious of any large rise in status.

      In my experience as a highly intelligent nerd, even as I’ve become alpha I’m still relationship oriented, but now I want girls on the side. The Bill Clinton strategy, pair bond but sleep around. Keep in mind that economic specialization has created a speciation pressure, whereby nerd-type women will preferentially mate with me. This is problematic, because they crave the pair bonding that I don’t wholly want to give them. I very briefly dated a model who was this type of person (her dad was a software engineer) and I knew immediately that it wouldn’t work out because I got sucked into my pair bonding instincts but wanted to keep pushing the boundaries of alpha. Picking up alpha-type 9s and 10s is a much bigger challenge for a beta genotype male.

      Anyways, this is a topic which demands a lot more attention than is given on CH. All men can be alpha, but not all people have the same set of instincts. In a way, we already realize this, but in practice the parameters of human differences are vastly underappreciated.

      • Women’s behavior and insistence that they want one thing, yet constantly are attracted to another is easy to understand when you grasp that the brain doesn’t control what you find attractive. So women can honestly believe they want a man who is: “fill in the laundry list”, when they hook up with the guy they find attractive which is none of those things.
        Personally, this is a good thing as I am none of those “beta-male” traits they talk up, but when it comes down to it, it is who can get their juices flowing that matters, and as the article point out, they will remember it for years after being in the beta-male environment, where they long for the excitement that they had.
        The ability of a woman to overlook everything except what excites them is something that I am oh-so-thankful-for since it seems that every year, the eighteen year old women get more attractive… 🙂

      • In all non degenerate cases, absent social pressure, it behooves a women to attempt a bit of randomization as pertains to the genes she chooses to mix with hers. Intra male differences in fitness is rarely so obviously great that such a hedging strategy doesn’t beat a non thusly hedged one. She is, after all, working off of very limited available information.

        So, even those women better adapted to pair bonding, face pressures to step out on occasion. Which is another reason why alpha strategies work for some men.

        If you look at multigenerational models, you can tweak it so that the fittest genes are those that program any individual woman not to seek out variety, as the variety can be obtained by having enough women pair bond 1-1 with enough men. Depending on how harsh the environment, and how much you discount lack of male effort as a function of parental uncertainty, such a society may well beat a micro optimizing one in the long run. But, again absent social pressure, you can never get entirely rid of the advantage any given female can obtain by occasionally stepping out.

        Now, if it is indeed such that over enough generations, exclusively pair bonded societies are fitter than any other, the people who will inherit the earth are exactly those that most efficiently rein in the innate single generation bias towards randomization. By mate guarding, and if that fails, culling/honor killing those who display an unusual proclivity for not playing by the rules. An interesting tidbit is that, even in such societies, alphas have a role to play, as they are the ones who facilitate ferreting out who the “weak” females, who society will benefit from honor killing, are.

      • You’ll get a lot further if you stop talking about societies and start think about individuals. Sure, group-based evolution probably exists as a weak pattern in species. Maybe. But gene-level selection is a much stronger pattern, and it’s easier to make useful predictions using it.

        Societies rarely pair bond preferentially, and more than ecosystems contain one animal. Society contains both pair bonders, and early-peaking slut / polygamous alpha types. This is especially true in economically specialize societies that contain many niches.

        Meanwhile, culture being set largely by the highest status members of a society, one can make predictions about which strategy is the dominant one based upon cultural features like honor killings and polygamy versus monogamous marriage. Arabs and Africans? Probably a lot of alphas. European Jews? Probably a lot of niche-seeking betas.

        There’s another layer when we begin to look at gene expression stimulated by diet, exercise, and environmental conditions. This is a complex area of research. These traits, which we can call epigenetics, are heavily influenced by lifestyle, and they are passed on for generations, just like genetics.

        But clearly the number one factor in expressing alphaness is the intent–the volition and mental-emotional power to do so and maintain that frame. This has a lot to do with intelligence and curiosity.

        As for epigenetics, don’t forget the big picture: it’s still genetics. We can only adjust our phenotype in response to external stimuli if we’ve evolved the ability to do that. Still subject to the same evolutionary pressures, still working on the same rules. But I bet, for instance, that after a few generations of being alpha, an epigenetics shift towards expressing alpha traits would occur. Good luck teasing that out from the general shift to higher mate quality though.

This culture-wide trait, as you said, may be an evolved, genetically influenced thing. This may be seen as a genetic response to environment–the prevalence of food & water in a given area, the building materials available, climate.

        So what works in one culture may be a total turn-off in another. And you cannot manipulate people into working together if you cannot maintain frame. It all starts in the mind of the would-be alpha.

        [More than a feeling.]

        And when she’s not young and pretty anymore you don’t feel it anymore?

        And then you start to feel it again when you meet another, younger girl?

        In this context, isn’t it possible to love a woman even when she’s old and saggy (she was young and pretty when you met her – so you have memories of her – and she’s a mother of your children)?

      • “I could never be with a guy who thought I’m interchangeable – I rather stay alone forever.”

        You should probably just rephrase that to, “I could never be with a guy who tells me I’m interchangeable…” (Or at least says as much without joking and making it light. Or you will likely be alone forever. Because interchangeability is a human tendency, minus those who are overly sentimental. And this human tendency is simply a function of geographic circumstance, etc. You (and every human) is interchangeable to an extent based on geographic proximity. What good is a “soul mate” (if such a concept even exists), if you never meet the person due to geographic limitations or even chronological limitations (who says the perfect person for you who thinks you’re not interchangeable would even be born in your lifetime). So just experiencing the human condition makes prospective mates interchangeable. You can’t pair with somebody who doesn’t exist, and if that perfect person exists, and you’ve never met them, you’d simply be with someone else. Or alone, as you seem to prefer.

        If you don’t want to be alone, I’d suggest you realign your views with biological realities. (And doing so doesn’t require abandoning the pursuit of love)

    • If I’m right, then you need to find a guy who’s got a pair-bonding genotype and isn’t so alpha that he’s shifted into a mode of sleeping with every 8+ that comes his way.

      Except that if I’m right, guys like that will subconsciously only mate with a similar genotype, so if thats not you, too bad. Some women are probably born to chase alphas their whole life, then spend the rest of their life raising their alpha-spawn either alone, or with the help of an extremely beta dude who seriously has no better options.

      CH seems to think that educating such women will change this, but I think that it’s far more likely to be a largely unchangeable genetic strategy rather than a learned behaviour. What does that mean for you? Figure out what you’ve been born to do, then do it as effectively as you can.

  35. There is an old canard about Berlusconi, that he controls the Italian media. Well, he owns the largest private TV station, yet it is quite a stretch to say he “controls” the couple of public broadcasters whose staffs he can barely touch.

    But since he is the prime minister we are supposed to believe he has total control over state media, which is hardly the case.

    The fact is, public media has been waging a Jihad against him for 20 years, together with the Judiciary. Italians vote him in, despite the horror of the bien-pensant in both sides of the Atlantic, because the Italian left is a criminal organization who would flood the country with immigrants and the rest of the Italian RIght are either bozos or simply lack his charisma.

      I am conscious that The Chateau is an American website and do not want to descend into the minutiae of European politics but will essay a short reply.

      Amongst the major European powers, Socialism has made huge gains. As many political commentators have pointed out time and time again, in France it does not matter what the political parties are called, they are all socialists. Private business is on its knees in France, while Sarkozy indulges in crony corporate capitalism (as most French politicians do) and expanding the power of the state.

      Germany is a horrifyingly statist socialist nightmare. I have worked there frequently and every german expects something from the state, absolutely expects the private sector to be taxed to death to pay for it. Merkel is the ultimate compromise bureaucrat, is famous for it, and has the backbone of a jellyfish. She is very happy with the current german situation, she is socialist to the bone (jelly).

      I am an Englishman and see firsthand what David Cameron is. England lives under the curse of the socialist Tony Blair, a charismatic actor of a man, who was the biggest political success England has seen for centuries. The English public loved him and his delivery of political messages.

      Cameron has modelled himself on Blair and has got into government but continues to back down when challenged by the socialist establishment. Under Cameron’s policies “real” (declared) government spending rose to 52% of Gross Domestic Product last month. Under those same policies it will rise to 55% next year, which will be disastrous for England. Under those policies it is very likely that we will lose our triple A credit rating. Cameron wants to stay in office, has not got the guts for the work, is a de-facto socialist.

      Until the Eastern European democracies gain power in Europe they don’t count, sorry and all.

      Socialism is hugely beneficial to the European political class, it gives them a power of patronage unrivalled by that of any king. They have no intention of changing the situation. I refer you to Greece’s decision to refer the Euro rescue package to a referendum. This is a socialist masterstroke which will keep the current socialist dictatorship in place for another fifty years.

      Your’s is a stamp collector’s argument, because they do not call themselves socialists but something else, it’s alright. Not for me, I judge them by what they do.

      Berlusconi is Alpha and as such displays a natural antipathy to socialist thought.

        Britain, Italy and every other group of people larger than 150 is far more complicated than any one person could ever understand. Sure, there’s an economic mess. Sure, there are people who are ostensibly in charge of it. Do you think they have unlimited power to act any way they see fit? Do you think that even if they did, it would transform Europe into a stable utopia?

        Of course not. Europe needs decisive leadership (probably) but never trust a decisive pundit.

      • Thanks for bringing this all out. Most Americans who even go there, visit Europe a few weeks in their lives and think they know it inside out. I think it is the height of folly for the US to follow in Europe’s footsteps. Now it is especially evident. What I least respect about Europe is its sense of entitlement coupled with its suicidal refusal to acknowledge its fundamental problems with immigration and disdain for its accomplishments and refusal to reproduce. I lived in Germany for 23 years. I enjoyed my life there immensely, but this time back, I don’t miss it anymore. I’m especially saddened for Britain. Labor has done irreparable and maybe permanent damage to British culture and society.

      • Also, it is an important point that you make- socialism has created a permanent European political class and they seem to be very adept at making ever more positions. They amount to nothing more than modern day nobility. The European political class has an organized farm system for future politicians. Every party has a youth auxiliary and operates as a tax free business. This is why Breivik chose the target he chose. They were the future leaders of his perceived enemy.

  40. The last time I was in Italy, a couple of years ago, I saw this BBC documentary in the hotel on Silvio. They interviewed this prostitute who had been with Silvio. She spoke of him as being a complete gentleman and very easy to talk to, that he really loved women, they spent the whole night together, talking and making love. After listening to her for about a minute, it was obvious she loved him, that he was even the love of her life, even if only for a night. I said to my wife, this is why Silvio is an alpha, even hookers fall in love with him. That impressed me. Silvio is my hero.

      If you have an above average apparent lifestyle and gentleman tendencies, they really fall in love quick. They are used to bottom shelf omegas otoh and arrogant uber jerks otoh who don’t even look at them. They need something in the middle.

  41. This is a good reason to never give women the pleasure of actually settling down. It’s quite obvious that even though beta’s are responsible for society and civilization, that means nothing to women. To a woman, a beta is merely a tool to provide and labor for her while she hunts for alpha cock on the sly. In conclusion, women appreciate 5 minutes of alpha over decades of being a loyal husband.

    With game, no man has to settle down and deal with the pain of knowing his wife loves the alpha she banged at the bar 10 years ago more than him.

  46. The assumption made here & elsewhere often seems to be Beta=STEM. Actually there are a lot of non-STEM, blue-collar guys considered beta by women. In the old days lots of hard working farmers and factory workers were abandoned by their women for slick-talking traveling salesman and carnival barkers. Basically, creating resources by work is Beta, taking resources by force or deception from others is Alpha.

    • If you’re reading my comments, thats not what I’m saying at all.

      STEM=nerd = evolutionary strategy to exploit niches held predominantly by betas. Spending 12 hours a day learning to fill a technical niche and ignoring social dynamics does not mesh with the role of tribal leader very well. However, such people still retain the instinctual ability to be an alpha leader (except in extreme cases of autism spectrum disorder).

      Meanwhile, other people do have a genotype that’s geared towards being alpha. But that doesn’t mean that they will be, their instincts will only allow them to exhibit alpha behaviour if their environment indicated to them that it is appropriate to do so. The threshold for this will be lower than for a nerd, but there will still be a threshold.

      As a further prediction, people from the second group will have a much harder time dealing with being low status. Black and indigenous peoole, for instance, are virtually all natural alphas, and without self respect they tend to fall apart the quickest.

      European Jews tended to be quite happy working on the fringes of society, and they kept working hard even under intense discrimination. They also win a lot of Nobel Prizes. Black Americans? They needed an end to racism as much for their mental health as anything else, and to this day they still underperform on tests when there is any hint of racism at work. But if I’m looking for an alpha male I’ll take a Black American over a European Jew any day.

        there is actually a lot of truth to this. i remember a presentation at school about how black american women routinely give birth to underweight babies. even recent african immigrants give birth to healthier babies. of course, the subjects studied were from upper-class neighborhoods to control for diet, poverty, drugs etc. The conclusions strongly indicate that only racism could have had such a strong and consistent effect.

      • Just to add to this, the reason that people from hunter/gatherer genetic backgrounds decrease their work rate when faced with status pressures is due to the link between low status and resource insecurity in such societies. When the alpha males take all the food and women, it’s in the best interests of low social status males to conserve resources, take big risks and follow a short-term strategy. Roughly.

        Meanwhile, rice farming societies are probably the extreme example of an economic system where status has nothing to do with economic opportunity for the average person. To a rice farmer, if you can work 14-18 hour days you’ll never go hungry.

        Low status Chinese people open convenience stores and work non-stop. Low status Black people drop out of school and join gangs to compete for status. That’s not just culture, that’s genes too.

I find so many younger women flaky that it is not worth hunting for the balanced ones. i find most older women insane and too few of them have kept their figures to be worth the effort. My age seems immaterial. It is actually easier to engage with the better looking ones. Of course, number one is a single mother 9divorced). Single women of 35 without children still seem to believe that they can have a handsome, never married, 40 year old millionaire who will love them and them only. I have advantages over teh average 60 year old. I have my own business. I lost 20 kg on divorce and now have blood pressure, lifting ability and running speed better than most 40 year olds. My reactions are slower and my eyes are going. Berlusconi is my hero. i also have no plans to retire. I have had my fun. I want another child.
