Recently Deti commented on the game post,
“How effective is Game?” It’s effective, but only short term. I think that’s what the PUAs like Krauser, Roissy, Roosh, Neil Strauss, Mystery, etc. found out. It’s also unsatisfying in the long term. Just ask Strauss, Roosh and Mystery.
Game isn’t the problem; the problem is the PUA’s relationship to Game. Game isn’t part of his life; it isn’t who he is. He acts the part of the masculine man; it’s a set of clothes he puts on. But it isn’t part of him. It isn’t what he internalizes. That’s why the focus has been shifting away from Game per se and toward masculinity. Game can’t be something you do; it has to be something you ARE. Because if a man isn’t masculine; if he isn’t truly outcome independent, if he doesn’t truly believe he’s a prize; if he doesn’t truly believe that he’ll be OK if his wife leaves, then it’s just something he does
And this brings us to what has been termed inner game. What is it? Well, it mainly just improvement with some packaging.
Women who look for marriage want (ideally at least) characteristics that lead to long term financial (and other) stability. This means aspects like education, career, skills (hopefully in many areas), good judgement, etc. For a regular somewhat ambitious man, these are thing that he undoubtedly would work on anyway. The idea is that all through life, a man developing these skills can package them up in a commensurate package of confidence (akin to for lack of a better term, “outer game”) and win the fair maiden.
Of course, if there are no fair maidens to be found, he still has the developed attributes, which can be mighty useful for MGTOW purposes.
So what is not to like? Develop yourself young man. Personal growth is the future, not plastics( a joke for the somewhat older set). Furthermore, personal growth cannot be taken from you.
