I wrote a comment to the Heartiste post “Smarter Women More Likely To Be Romantic Failures” dated 28 April 2015. I present it here for my edification and amusement. I am one of my favorite authors. I will present the first comment I posted in response to a comment since it is somewhat prerequisite for the one that did not post immediately and in which I quote dating advice from the linked post itself.
Warmth, sweetness, loyalty, and femininity are not female personality traits, only capacities. Women are vapid role players. It takes a conquest to remove alternative strategies, eliminate prior depreciation events, and get good wifey behavior. I don’t f-close, only regularly open and attract. There’s a lot of ignorant pretense ’round here. Don’t need much PUA success to spot this BS.
“In short, it pays men to date up in looks and date down in everything else.
“The inverse is also true. It pays women to date down in looks and date up in everything else.”
If ‘date’ is meaningful, it means spinning plates or marriage. For marriage great advice, but marriage is horrible advice. For 99% of the commenters here, i.e. those not men with a stable or having done it, this is bad advice. The post is otherwise insightful, IMO.
The horde of pretenders will take the traits filter to heart and count birds in the distant bush. Men must develop themselves first and foremost. Just sarge based on what’s good for you (time, place, set opportunity), which is not being so picky until the luxury of mastery. Each chick is an individual in pickup, so the next is automatically considered on an individual, factual basis. The given heuristic is for ordering from a foreign bride catalogue, but that is crap shoot unlike great Game.
Don’t need to look for IQ per se. Need to look for evidence of her solid belief in your higher status to satisfy hypergamy (good) and bitch tells (bad, improve your game; or bad, broken crazy bitch: but next either way and focus on self). If prioritize women under 25 and go over only for easy casual layup, I don’t think there is much risk of broken batshit crazy not visible for a country mile.
I also think men are generally captain oblivious about the downside of high IQ women and not cause of [female IQ] skew. The more frequent romantic terminal punishments by high female IQ is independently sufficient. High female IQ is only bad when men (the high EQ and reality principle sex) don’t have political ascendancy and balls. Chick can call 911 as good as you, and get privileged results.
