When I was younger, before taking the Red Pill, I did fairly well with girls.
But I didn’t understand women or game well back then.
So I was overly romantic. And very Blue Pill.
I also had a major weakness – I fell in love way too easily.
Now that was mostly harmless. I avoided getting married, never had kids. And so I escaped those years mostly unscathed.
Anyhow, the point of telling you all this is not to brag.
It’s so that you understand:
I’ve loved various women, who loved me back. Both before and after I took the Red Pill.
And that experience gives me unique perspective.
Because now I can answer this question:
Is Blue Pill Love different from Red Pill love?
Yes, it is…
Blue Pill love and Red Pill love are totally different.
Although there are similarities, they’re not the same.
Let’s explore the differences:
Blue Pill Love
Some say love is blind. Well, that old cliché accurately describes Blue Pill love. Because that’s exactly what it is. A man who’s never digested the Red Pill is an eyeless sitting duck. He’s in danger of making all the classic romantic mistakes…
Equating sex with love.
Falling in love too fast.
Thinking hotness means good character.
Believing men and women love in the same way.
Not understanding female attraction.
Using movies and TV as role models for love.
Making big life-changing decisions while in love.
And the list goes on.
Now is Blue Pill love real?
But it’s a boyish sort of love.
And a man who indulges in it is setting himself up for serious pain…
Once a man takes the Red Pill?
Post-Red Pill Love
Yes, a Red Pill aware man can fall in love. He can pair bond, still fall for someone hard.
But it’s not the same.
Now he’s older.
Able to make better invest his emotional capital.
He’s experienced heartbreak. So now he understands the truth about female nature.
He no longer puts girls on pedestals.
He’s stopped loving with blinders on.
He sees woman for what they are – imperfect humans.
He accepts their weaknesses, but loves the good parts.
He understands female “loyalty.”
And comprehends the vast difference between male and female love.
He’s now awake.
He can love freely.
Like a man.
Consciously choosing who to love, and only picking women who add value to his life.
I try keeping this blog practical these days. Mostly offering actionable advice.
But sometimes, it’s good to explore existential, philosophical questions – to delve deeper into love and life.
And really, if you think about it, love isn’t existential at all.
It’s just another emotion.
And a big part of game involves mastering that emotion.
So a deep understanding of romantic love, both kinds, is a must for any aspiring Red Pill player.
