A young Redditor called mookg is perplexed: He’s noticed that, contrary to what he’s learned from the Red Pill subreddit, some women seem to prefer dating men who don’t look like big, beefy gym rats. So he turns to the Ask The Red Pill subreddit for answers.
“Why do some women date weak men?,” he wonders.
I have noticed in my social circle, A lot of girls like dating skinny weak men (typical bluepill). My sister also just got engaged to a guy who has 0 fashion sense and just works 9-5 and has never stepped foot into a gym. She is 30.
I want to understand the psychology behind these women as to why they prefer weak men.
Huh. Why might women prefer men who don’t know the first thing about the Red Pill? Might this commonly observed fact suggest that perhaps the Red Pill is not the infallible guide to female psychology that its practitioners claim? Maybe some women don’t want their partners to be alpha male assholes who live in the gym and spend their time strategizing online about the best ways to dominate and manipulate them? Maybe life is not a Charles Atlas cartoon?
Nope. According to the Red Pillers on hand to answer the question, a woman’s lack of interest in alphas just means that there’s something deeply wrong with her, not with the alphas she’s rejecting.
“[W]omen only date up,” responds someone called reduxDev.
The women you are discussing in this post are losers. …
A good amount of women actually avoid superficially attractive men because its obvious they have options. A guy being hot/cute, fashionable, or jacked can deter women seeking monogamy from even trying.
“Some women are just masculine inside and they want a weak man to dominate,” declares Stoic-Alpha-01.
“A lot of women don’t like the high maintenance of HVMs [High Value Males] and don’t want to compete with other women,” adds Noodlesoupe2.
These women usually are control freaks and like being above their man so they have absolute adoration and control. It’s an ego boost.
Or maybe there’s something wrong with the men, and the women in question just want “[p]ussies who give away their money and material things,” as one commenter puts it.
“Some of these men start off strong and then are slowly broken down to becoming weak,” explains kclanton80.
[O]thers are chosen specifically cuz they’re weak because the woman can control them and exploit them for their resources.
Or, I dunno, maybe some women think “alpha” dudes are self-centered, misogynistic assholes and would rather date someone as far from “alpha” as possible? Or maybe they just prefer skinny nerdy dudes to jocks?
Nah, couldn’t be that. These women have got to all be a bunch of losers and ball-busters.
