The Red Pill and ‘Opposite George’

Posted on | May 30, 2019 | Comments Off on The Red Pill and ‘Opposite George’

You may recall one of the funniest episodes of Seinfeld:

George remarks to Jerry in Monk’s Café that every decision that he has ever made has been wrong, and that his life is the exact opposite of what it should be. Jerry convinces him that “if every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.” George experiments with doing the complete opposite of what he would do normally.

This is one of the things to keep in mind when discussing “Red Pill” philosophy. According to Rollo Tomassi and other students of intersexual dynamics, many of the “Blue Pill” beliefs men are taught about female behavior are so wrong that men might as well do like George Costanza and do the opposite of what we are taught.

Think about the assumptions guys are prone to make about women, based on superficial characteristics. Men are easily impressed by beauty, but I like to quote an old Johnny Rivers lyric:

Beware of pretty faces that you find.
A pretty face can hide an evil mind.

If a pretty girl wishes to deceive a guy, he’s unlikely to wise up to her deception until it’s too late. Therefore, it would behoove the young bachelor to be suspicious of any unusually attractive woman he meets. Here’s the thing: One would expect, in the normal course of human events, that the most attractive women would be off the market, so to speak, at a relatively young age, yet here she is flirting with you.

If she’s good-looking and still single, why is she single?

There must be a backstory to explain why such an attractive woman hasn’t gotten herself a man already. Something must have gone wrong.

Here’s where the “Opposite George” mentality could prove advantageous. The unusually attractive woman expects guys to make a move on her, but if you can focus your mind on a realistic assessment — she must have done something wrong, or else she wouldn’t still be single — you will adopt an attitude of cautious skepticism toward her. And another “Opposite George” insight: Be honest about the reasons for your caution.

Think about it. She’s already heard every clever pickup line in the book, so instead you just speak to her honestly. You’ve got nothing to hide — obviously, she knows you find her attractive — and you’ve probably got nothing to lose, because the chances are she’s got emotional problems that explain why all her previous relationships failed. Hooking up with her would only entangle you in her psychodrama, so if being honest means you don’t score with her, you haven’t really lost anything. In fact, ignoring her would probably be the smartest move you could make, but if you’re going to take a chance, make sure you get her backstory first.

Avoid being predictable. Think about how to be different — how to set yourself apart from other guys. Don’t be an average chump, easily deceived by any pretty girl he meets. Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it’s probably not true, nor is it actually good.

Try the Red Pill. You could be more like “Opposite George.”
