    Don’t make someone a priority when they make you an option.

    Once I figured this out it saved me TONS of headaches.

    Learn to cook! You don’t need to be a master chef, but the number of men I know who can’t make scrambled eggs is ridiculous. It’s simply not that complicated to learn a few easy recipes that you can keep in your back pocket.

    If a woman is interested, she will act interested

    Don’t waste your time on women who play games.

    Bonus Tip: Prioritize keeping a clean home. You may be a real catch, but if you live like a fucking slob, she’s likely to move on

    Thinking about texting an ex? Jerk off first and then decide.

    If you get a rando erection in public or anywhere else really, Flex a muscle elsewhere in your body whether it’s your calves or any of your arm muscles. As long as you’re getting the blood flowing to any other part of your body, you’ll be good in about 30-45 seconds. This has came in clutch so many times in High School let me tell you.

    Best I have ever learned and applied: Respect yourself. And I mean really respect yourself for who you are, what you’ve accomplished, and what you will accomplish in this actualized state of man-hood. You will find that most things don’t bother you, you don’t put up with peoples drama/bs/insignificant/insincere thoughts and actions. Knowing “I am and this is me, and I will become better at it” is a very powerful tool.

    Self esteem, happiness, sadness, loneliness, etc. are emotions that come and go – self respect will never do that to you.

    Girls are turned on by things that won’t make sense to you

    850 comments right now and nobody has said to wash your ejaculate off with cold water. Hot water makes it lump and stick more.

    Take the time to do your hair, shower, smell good. You don’t necessarily have to shave, but you should at least endeavor to make what is on your face look as nice as possible. This isn’t a “girly” thing. Looking good translates to feeling good and acting throughout the day in a confident manner.

    Buy clothes that fit, if you don’t like the way clothing fits on you, it might be time to get a gym membership.

    Good people can disagree with each other. Your life will be enriched if you look at differences as opportunities to humbly learn (and gently teach) new perspectives.

    Hygiene: not just for the gays.

    Also probably don’t call them the gays.

  15. PunchBeard February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Men are turned on by visual stimulation. Women generally aren’t. Unsolicited “dick pics” have the complete opposite affect on women than unsolicited “boob shots” have on you. THE EXACT OPPOSITE.

  16. Painting_Agency February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Talk honestly to someone you trust about your feelings. Your good buddy, your (edit) romantic partner, your parents, whatever. Men **can** do this, even if we’ve been told many times that we can’t. It’ll feel good, it’ll improve communication and trust with the other person, and if you’re having problems maybe they can help you or at least make you feel a little better with some sympathy.

    Life’s too short to be a silent unhappy rock.

  17. Robsta92 February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    No matter what clothes you buy, make sure they fit. I know how basic this sounds, but even a white t shirt and jeans that fit perfectly will look better and last longer, than a 100 dollar shirt and chinos that are too baggy/tight.

    Delete tinder at least two weeks before Valentine’s. You’ll save money.

    I’m not a fan of overly vague theories on the differences between men and women, but this piece of advice made communicating with my S.O. so much easier.

    When men talk about their problems, typically they’re looking for your help finding a solution. When women talk about their problems, they’re looking for validation that there is a problem and emotional support, *not necessarily a solution*.

    I remember one of my guy friends talking to me about this girl he had been dating and he was having a hard time with her because she called him up all the time to complain about how awful her parents were or something, but then got frustrated with him when he gave her advice or told her what to try differently. After explaining this concept to him, the relationship 180’d bigtime, and now they’re really happy together. He was stressed because he couldn’t figure out how to fix her problems, and she was frustrated because she was seeking support and validation but felt like she was getting a lecture.

    When you need to pee at a urinal, give yourself a bit of a semi so your dick looks bigger.

  21. cheesehuahuas February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Be the best version of you you can be. Maybe your self esteem is low because you’re not in the best shape or you’re not considered conventionally attractive; there are plenty of things you *can* control. Take care of your hygiene. Wear clothes that fit. Don’t be an asshole.

    As a nerd, I meet a lot of other nerds who feel bad about their looks but then walk around without showering in clothes that haven’t been washed in a month. You’re playing yourself.

  22. ntuck13 February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    If you’re a hairy guy, do some manscaping before a big date, but don’t completely shave your dick, leave a little hair down there so it doesn’t look weird

  23. Combustion14 February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    When you get a women’s number, repeat it back with one wrong number. If she corrects you, you’re golden. If not, time to move on.

    Edit: Thanks for the gold kind stranger.

    Use Anti dandruff conditioner to shave.

    I used to have horrendous razor burn on my neck when I would shave ( wear a beard but shave my neck daily.)

    About 2 days after the switch it started to go away.

    If a person says something that happened to you in a greater quantity (i.e. I got a way worse injury) DONT, and I really mean don’t, bring yours up and start a competition, just say wow or react accordingly cause usually a person shares a story to see what you think, not learn of your way worse/intense story. Commonly called 1uping, it’s really not needed. Also don’t dismiss their experience because you’ve had a similar one, people hate this as it implies they haven’t done anything.

  26. fleetber February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Learned this from another thread a while back:

    After peeing – push on your taint to squeeze the last few drops out.

    Baby powder your balls to keep them from sticking to your thigh.

    Jerking off in the shower gets your dick cleaner than just wiping a soapy rag on your little floppy dick. There’s folds that need to be stretched and cleaned vigorously.

    Keep out of dating for few years so you can do everything you want to do without having to discuss it with anyone. If you want to buy a clapped out miata as a project track car, it’s only your business.

  31. take5b February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Women are just female people, nothing special, not great or bad, just people with, like, boobs ‘n’ vaginas and stuff. They have widely different personalities, like we do. Some are really smart, or clever, or talented, some are fucking morons, and everything in between. Like us. They like to laugh and hate to feel like crap, like we do.

    Seems obvious but seems forgotten in all the “battle of the sexes” flame wars that young people get caught up in. Just avoiding the nonsensical generalizations and desperate need to categorize and stigmatize makes it easier to connect with people, even the lady people, and not make everything transactional, cynical, brutal.

  32. tombolger February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Don’t worry about “being a man.” Just be a good person, and doing the right thing, even when it’s hard, will lead you there.

  33. dssx February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Get back to your wildside from time to time- take a boxing class, build a campfire, climb a mountain, canoe a river, go stargazing…

    There’s still a part of man that doesnt belong in the safe and sanitary world of clickable convenience. Go feed your wild soul in the wilderness and see how you come back to the world a little more refreshed and motivated.

    Want to ask for her number, but can’t remember her name? Hand her the phone with the add contacts open and let her enter it.

  35. ectish February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    If you take a hit/jolt/whack/kick/etc. to the groin-

    Jump up and land square on your feet with your knees locked. Do it a couple times.

    Seriously, I’ve taken years of Judo and BJJ and this works. It’s not a *cure* but gawdammit it **really helps.**

    edit: don’t slam dunk here just jump a couple inches eh?
    Also, I’ve mostly done this on Judo mats, not granite/concrete/iron/moon- use *common* sense when you’re writhing in pain and trying not to vomit

  36. SirTyrael February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    The second bust lasts longer than the first. Make up and excuse and wank one out in the bathroom. Buddy told me this years ago when I was explaining to him that I hadn’t heard back from a girl I was talking with after we hooked up. Asked me how long I lasted. Told him not long at all. Told me next time wank one out in the bathroom. Changed everything. God bless you Riley.

    Fucking lotion up guys. Its not just for masturbating. keep that skin healthy. You will look younger, your skin is smoother, you wont be itchy or scratchy. Black people figured this shit out way early because they get ashy. But, they moisturize and thus “black don’t crack”. Also, helps out a bunch with calluses and work hands. I know you think having nasty calluses and chewed up hands seems cool and manly, but girls will not be fans of you rubbing your baseball mitts up and down her during sexy time.

  38. thirteenthfox2 February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Grow a beard. Shave once a week. Save like 5 mins a day.

  39. NHMasshole February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Be yourself. Use a condom. Shower daily. Listen more than “try and fix”. Eat clean. Lift. Be funny and confident, but dont be mean. Be kind, but don’t be weak. She’s a human being with faults and dreams like the rest of us. Don’t play games and uh….always have extra snacks.

  40. jayTEEarr February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    You can’t smell how bad your home smells because you’re used to it, get a oil diffuser and make that place smell like a rainforest of yumyum.

    No, your apartment is not an exception to this.

  41. TheAngryBrian February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    Smell nice.

    If you have shit for good looks, you’re awkward, you have poor fashion sense, the easiest thing you can do is smell nice. Wear cologne, use scented soap and shampoo, wash your clothes regularly. It’s not hard to do, and it helps make a good impression. Nobody gets disgusted by someone smelling nice.

  42. GOOOOOOONGS February 14, 2018 / 6:07 am

    There is no such thing as the right way to be a man. If you have a “feminine” side embrace it. If you are of small stature, own it. Just do whatever you do confidently and with pride, people will respect you for it even if they don’t get it
    (Also I know not all people but the ones that don’t are assholes)

    Buy a trash can for your bathroom that has a cover on top (for her discretion during that time of the month)

    In no particular order, this list has made me a significantly better person. Some are stolen from others, some are things I’ve come up with myself over time. I have never had someone criticize me for any of it, but I have consistently had people tell me I’m one of the most considerate and thoughtful people they know.

    Be the man you would want your daughter to marry. Be proud of yourself. Stand with your head up, confident, yet not cocky.

    – Make your bed
    – Buy a box of tampons. Leave them for female guests on a shelf in the bathroom, or under the sink.
    – Always have extra toilet paper.
    – Have a clean bathroom, and ideally kitchen
    – Buy lights you can dim for your living room. Mood lighting isn’t just for when a woman is over. It can set the mood with friends, or even when you’re alone. Dimmable is ideal. If not, a small light that’s a lot less bright than your usual ones.
    – Wash your dick. If in doubt, wash it again.
    – Have a stocked bar at home. Rye/Whisky, Gin, Vodka, bottle of red & white, a couple beers, and mix (cran, OJ, soda, etc). Even if you’re not a fan of some of this, toss it in the cupboard.
    – If applicable, have a little weed stashed away. You’d be shocked how easy it is to say “hey, we could go share a joint at my place” and how social that can be.
    – Have a spare set of PJs. A soft t-shirt & nice PJ pants that you can lend a friend of potential woman who’s staying over.
    – Extra pillows & a blanket for the couch should a friend need to crash
    – Have a clean set of towels.
    – A trash bin in your washroom that has a lid. Make sure you empty it routinely.
    – Empty ALL your trash bins routinely. None of them should ever be overflowing, ESPECIALLY the kitchen and bathroom ones.
    – Various charger cables. Mini USB, Micro USB, USB-C, Apple lightening.
    – Even if you don’t have contacts, buy some solution & a contacts case. If a woman is there and she’s worried she didn’t bring her supplies, she’ll be delighted to know you do.
    – Keep some quick munchies on hand. Bag of chips, popcorn, granola bars. They are for guests or emergencies only. Don’t be dipping into it yourself.
    – Have coffee & tea available. Bonus points if you have a small collection of whisky/scotch. You’d be amazed at how many women are into it.
    – Wet wipes. Keep them in your bedside table beside the condoms.
    – Speaking of condoms, you damn well better have regular and latex free.
    – Learn how to LISTEN to a woman. Not wait for your chance to talk.
    – Bookmark the following things so you’re not scrambling last minute :
    — Playlist of soft music. (Jazz, downtempo, etc)
    — Playlist of background music for socializing (indie, deep house, liquid dnb, boiler room sets)
    — A few good documentaries of various topics you can pull up quickly. A few good TED Talks never hurts either.
    – Learn how to go down on a woman. PROPERLY.
    – In your general area, have a small handful (3-4) “date” spots. A really good pub that’s cozy, quiet(er) and with a good menu of food & drink. Tip well. Staff will remember you and it’s obvious when you’re on a date. Staff on your side can be the best wingman.
    – Get yourself tested.
    – Be kind, yet confident. Always. Especially to staff anywhere you go. Double especially to people in the service industry.
    – Make female friends and DONT try and fuck them. They should be the type of females you’d go to the end of the earth for, and you look up to them. Treat them better than your bros.
    – Your bro friends, you should look up to them. You should admire them. Strive to be the kind of person they admire back. Cut the losers out of your life, they are dragging you down.
    – Buy a suit and have it tailored for YOU.
    – Own a few good pairs of shoes, NOT from the discount store. A pair of runners, black dress shoes, casual shoes, boots and summer shoes.
    – Have a set of tools and know how to use them.
    – Read a book. Good, now read another. A real book. Expand your mind.
    – Go to the gym.
    – Learn to admit when you’re wrong.
    – Tell the truth. It’s not always easy, but it’s always right.
    – Learn how to PROPERLY apologize. “I’m sorry”, Explain why it was wrong and how it made someone feel, then “How do I make this right?”
    – Call your mother.
