5 Dating Stages ALL Men Go Through

  • Free Training: How to effortlessly attract any woman you see www.thepinnacleofmen.com/
    All Men go through 5 predictable dating stages throughout their self-development journey. We start off as beta males conditioned through society to be nice guys that go into the friendzone. Then move onto either men that give up or decide to do something about it. This cycle then usually leads to an alpha male. With a new found understanding of attraction and dating we overcompensate until we find love and eventually learn the truth about attraction and social psychology. This leads to few men that become the Omega male.
    Below Are The 5 Stages
    1. Nice Guy / Beta Male 0:35
    2. Apprenticeship 2:55
    3. Overcompensator / Alpha Male 6:00
    4. First Real Love 8:16
    5. Omega Male 10:28

            Great video bro i thought your were just gonna be another retard PUA but its pretty acurate description, i became a omega male after a similar jurney you described and im now thinking about making a video to help other guys deal with this cause i know how hard it can be to aprouch girls but understanding that the goal is to become the omega male and not to be the overcompensator wich most PUA become and never reach true self respect, keep the good work

              I don't know. Seems logical but I think reality is more complex and doesn't fit into models or even patterns all the time. Patterns of course are common in nature but I think there is a wide variance of them in this field I don't though

                    Do guys lie a lot in the overcompensatory stage?

                                      I hope my “friend’s boyfriend “ becomes an omega male. He cheated, and then she cheated back. I hope he realize things. Got really curious tho. So my friend’s mentality is like “ok, cheat. It’s ok. I’ve done it also. I’ll forgive you” and the guy’s mentality is like “why the fuck did you do that? You don’t have the right. I won’t forgive you!” Why react that way when he started? 😂🤦🏻‍♀️

                                                  There is another option. Accept the pain, and learn to live with it, and preoccupy yourself with distraction.

                                                      This looks actually true and it's helpful because im in the phase where i stop being the nice guy, but haven't reached the other stages yet. it really helps me being prepared for future stages and with this i know what could happen, just thanks for the info man! Peace :D

The simple act of not focusing on attaining a date and relaxing helps. Most of my relationships came out of just simply talking to girls without any preconceived goals or tactics

I am focusing on my career college and losing weight women are nice but I want to be whole and I know I am enough. I also know what I do and dont want. I just don't like the terms omega and alpha male those terms are b.s. I want to be the man I want to be not a alpha male I thinks it's a marketing ploy.

                                                                                • Pinnacle Of Man TM

It may take weeks or years but eventually when that codependent relationship crashes and burns, we learn our lesson and evolve to the next stage. All necessary (and worth it) to get to Omega. You did a really wonderful job explaining this!

But I consider myself pretty emotionally intelligent, confident, and transparent. Throughout a large portion of my life I just really enjoyed my own company; while maintaining casual relationships. I was never an "asshole", but I did hurt a lot of women. And I did the crash and burn bit as well. I went back to a similar lifestyle after the relationship, although I became much more mindful/aware of womens personal feelings, which altered my approach to those casual relationships, and it made me a more transparent person. I've recently become open to finding someone to grow with. So now my intentions are different, but it hasn't been working out so far. I'm looking for a specific state of mind, and the same shared unorthodox life trajectory I have; a humble open mind, and the aspiration to build a lifestyle that affords freedom of choice. I meet these brilliant dynamic women, but a deal breaker always pops up. And all that ends up happening is I'm hurting women again, which I feel awful about. Sometimes I think I should just go back to the mindful single/casual lifestyle. If you read this I'm curious what your thoughts are.

                                                                                                    • Pinnacle Of Man TM

We want the best women for us (as we should), but in the end we constantly ask ourselves (is she good enough?) It's something that I want to find an answer for. I think at the end if the day, when you date enough women and know what you truly want then she will eventually show up in your life. I don't think that needs to happen for a guy until he's in his 30s though.

I get that a lot from many men saying how it's very different for older guys. A good channel that you may enjoy is entrepreneur in cars. He is dogmatic in his views but may align with what you agree with. Overall, I would take a step back and right down exactly what you want out of a women down to her hair color. Having a clear picture in your mind will help save time with other women. If also focus more on building comfort than attraction with the woman you are dating. I find older women tend to focus on that. (Values in common)

                                                                                                                                • Chris Clayton

Women are more complex than what they use to be. I was discussing with friends Saturday that back in the day (I'm 42) that women wanted a hard working man that was faithful plus a Lil more but now it's so much different. Being divorced and jumping back in the scene is confusing. Attraction is the tough part bc they don't know how much more they need to be anymore or at least it seems to the older fellas. Keep up the good work and I purchased your book.

Of course you want to work on your outer looks. Just basic hygiene and some working out is good enough. It's so hard to sum up everything in a comment, but if it had to nail it down to one sentence it's confidence. That means knowing you are of value to her. Having the core belief that you are wanted and have value to offer. That there is no reason why she wouldn't want you. As far as hobbies go, yes, have a passion. I'm sure you already do so just share it. Girls don't care what a guy is passionate about. They love feeling the passion he has for his purpose in life.

That's exactly how it was for me. I was catering to them, not realizing what I wanted. It only took my first love to break my heart n studied for 4 months. I was already attractive, but now I put intelligence and suave behind it. 22 years old I feel I can get anybody and if they don't want me. Lmao there's 6 more billion of y'all out there, no worries. I'm JUST chilling

I mean it sounds stupid that every guy does go through that. Anyway my question here: can i go through the circle again? because it seems i am a born "omega male" in this case, but i kind of feel like i missed out on the whole friend-zone and chick-magnet state. Is it even worth it, to try out these stages of Dating?

Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you thought about - Lammywalness His Happiness Guide (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one of a kind product for understanding what men really want minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my BF at very last got great results with it.
