Jim Chapman’s guy’s advice for girls.

26 Jul

Jim Chapman is a young, very adorable men’s grooming vlogger from England.  I started watching his sisters’ makeup tutorials and then subscribed to his channel when he started it.  Most of the time Jim reviews grooming products or does lifestyle bits, but today he posted a video discussing mistakes that girls have made with him in the past.  It reinforced the conventional wisdom of the manosphere (minus the bitterness, anger at women, Chicken Little admonitions against marriage, and so forth – but then he’s had a cute girlfriend for several years), so I thought it would be worth embedding here.  Plus, a cute British accent always makes advice taste a little sweeter. :)

(If you don’t have time to watch or can’t listen because you’re sneaking blog time on the job, his advice is (1) Don’t be too forward. (2) Don’t be too aloof. (3) Don’t be needy. (4) Don’t be a vomiting drunk.)

    I immediately know his advice is full of shit, because he says that having a cute girlfriend he is off the table.

    If you have a wife or girlfriend in tow, and don’t allow her to boss you around in public, it doubles your prospects. Girls do not see men with wives or girlfriends as off the table.

    Please explain how Jim’s advice is compromised by his having a cute girlfriend. If he said he was a swingin’ single, would all of his advice suddenly be stuff that women should follow?

    “minus the bitterness”

    Cause there’s no bitterness at Haley’s Halo.

    That he has a cute girlfriend is evidence his advice is sound. That he thinks that it takes him off the table is evidence that his advice is unsound.

    Mr. Donald is being obtuse.

    “Chicken Little admonitions about marriage.”

    Well, you only have to see the marriage statistics: first you can see the continuous decline of marriage rates, then see the results by race. See how marriage rates for whites are equal to the marriage rates that black people had twenty years before. Then, see the marriage rates for blacks now…

    You can’t discuss everything but you can’t fight reality with words. You can dismiss reality with a bright expression like the one that heads this post, but the reality won’t go no matter how you dismiss it.

    Not only that, the fact that he says that he has a cute girlfriend in the video and this takes him off the table is remarkably beta. You can think these things without SAYING them publicly. He seems one of these guys that appear in Youtube saying: “MARY, I LOOOOOOOVE YOU and wearing a T-shirt with a heart on it”. So beta.

    These things must be said in private, if you don’t want to lose status in the eyes of your girlfriend (she thinks she has you wrapped on her finger).

    By contrast, not mentioning your girlfriend in the video makes her feel insecure, makes her believe you don’t need her, that you are open to find another girl, so she will take pains to make sure your relationship is sound. This is the challenge. This is the alpha move.
