Whenever a halfway attractive woman does something, anything on the Internet, there’s always a coterie of sackless chumps ready to praise her just for being alive, in the vain hope that she’ll sleep with them. Even if the “woman” is 16 and lives in another country.This is arguably the easiest means of identifying BETA status. How often do you offer unmerited praise for women that you would never provide a man? Unwarranted praise is supplication. If a woman is attention-whoring on Facebook or elsewhere, feeding the endless abyss is absolutely counterproductive if you are attracted to her.
It's hard for men to realize, since it is exactly opposite to the way that men think, but women tend to react much more strongly to negativity than to positivity. This is because they are other-driven rather than self-driven. I've seen this time and time again, in the office, in sports, and in the sexual marketplace. A woman will ignore 20 men praising her and focus like a laser on the one who shrugs her shoulders at her, whereas a man won't bother with the 20 women ignoring his existence, but will focus his attention on the woman who views him in a positive light.
Men and women make unnecessary inter-sexual mistakes because they wrongly assume that the sexes think alike. As a general rule, they don't. If you're a single guy, experiment with this principle. Try placing five "ooh, you so pretty" comments on the Facebook photos of five women you know, then five "Yikes! I didn't know you were part Bulgarian!" on five others. My estimate is that you won't even get a response from the first five women, but will get at least four responses from the second five.
Conversely, women should similarly experiment with building a man up rather than "putting him in his place". Do report back with results, if you give it a whirl. We're all about the science here.
