Fascinating long comments thread - I'm nearly through. Bear in mind this was written eight years ago, so before Tinder and stuff. Remarkable amount of red pill wisdom there, even if some of the contributors admit it's out of jaded cynicism
And even in the midst of the pearls, the following is truly a diamond:
I’ve seen a similar pattern in people I’ve known who spent years in a sexual free-for-all party mode, then decided that they were ready to settle down. As you suggest, they’d go around making a big deal about their change of heart/change of lifestyle – trying to convince themselves while trying to convince everyone else.
In every single case I know of, they failed to change their lifestyle, and ended up cheating on their spouse in fairly short order. This is why I keep telling David that I do not believe that adults change their “set in” behavioral patterns – once a partier, always a partier; once a taste for bay boys, always a taste for bad boys.
(NB: he seems to be referring to men as well as women. Take note all ye who enter here....)
And since this thread is sort of religion-themed, here's a Bible summary of the above quote:
Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
