Podcast: Dating Tips And Advice For Men
By right, we don’t mean pay attention to the FDA nutrition guidelines. We basically mean eat Paleo and I can go into that if you want, and exercise and know how to do exercise that’s really efficient and effective. You don’t need to do cardio for an hour 3 times a week. Then, for the other 4 traits, we go through analogous interventions that you can do in life that are maximally efficient and effective and don’t take that much time but they really bring results. Geoffrey Miller focuses on Darwin’s sexual selection theory, how sexual preferences have driven the species to produce costly ornamentation of no survival relevance, which would be fitness indicators to attract a mate and procreate.
The author already wrote related articles within one month, which suggests more may be coming. Optimized dating advice isn’t important in itself, but the discourse algorithm that’s too cowardly to even think about dating advice is thereby too constrained to do serious thinking about the things that are important. The person I was referring to is a data scientist and effective altruist with a degree from Oxford who now runs their own business. I’m not claiming that they would be an AI safety researcher if not for associations of LW with sexism – but it’s not even that much of a stretch. I agree you should start by exploring your goals and your ethics. I did replace mating with dating throughout the post for availability heuristic reasons.

What Women Want
I was also intrigued by their examination of the types of guys who get women and what it is that does and doesn’t work for them. For example, they explain why the jock was so popular in high school etc. Best of all, however, is their chapter on what it’s like to date men as a woman and how daunting and intimidating the experience can be.
Only Tucker can approach a subject such as sex with a woman and be honestly uncomfortable, but so true! Overall, it’s invaluable advice that many guys need to hear, notwithstanding the above shortcomings. The idea of hard to fake indicators of biological fitness. Attracting someone is not about doing anything big, but instead doing little things – taking care of your body & mind. Sleep well, eat well, exercise well, read well, basic grooming, dressing well.
If someone is willing to move cities for a job they should certainly be willing to do so for a better mating market, like moving to Manhattan if you’re a young man. The simplest explanation for when relationships occur is randomness. I approach more in good times but have less success, which is unlikely if each approach is equal. Next I listened to people’s explanations but after many long conversations I noticed an explanation from one instance did not predict behavior in another instance.
Mate: Become the Man Women Want, Includes PDF of Supplemental Material Audio CD – CD, 22 September 2015
Know that this will be a deal breaker for some women. If that is what you want, your job is to find the women that want that too. You need to talk about this before anyone’s clothes are off but you shouldn’t open the date with it either. I’m writing this because I am sad that so many are alone and don’t know why. I was lonely for much of my life and lacked tools to understand or change my situation.
– I have just finished Geoffrey Miller’s excellent book Mate, a reductionist, signalling-heavy guide to how to attracting women for men. I post for constructive comments and to give an example of applying LessWrong style rationality. The plan is for me, a heterosexual man, but I appreciate input from all gender/sexual identities.
It would be really hard to get a tenure track job. There are maybe 5 positions a year globally in ev psych versus hundreds in social psych or developmental psych. I do think Tinder is a shame, that people think so little about what they actually want. Although throughout history, if someone lived in proximity to you and was the same age as you, you would often end up together.
This isn’t a how to manual, there are no five simple tricks to achieving success with women and the authors state outright that you are going to have to put work in to realize some of the benefits of their advice. I never had a girlfriend, but I often had flings. I always shuttered when women asked me about my dating life because I didn’t know how to explain. PinkCupid How could I explain to them when I barely experienced a night stand and no girlfriend? They probably thought that I’m gay or something abnormal about me. Tucker concluded clearly that there are three different sections what men are looking for–one night stand, short term, or long term relationship–I finally learned that I’m into short term relationships.
Slights and any signs of emotional withdrawal are taken much more seriously. And then when we see each other I’m really happy to see him but there are also a couple of days of ‘shit testing’. Shit testing is the red-pill idea that women are being difficult in order to test the status, fortitude, and commitment of their partner.
