MGTOWs, or a good portion of them, anyway, have convinced themselves that they’re really teaching women a lesson by largely staying out of the dating market.
If enough men go MGTOW, the thinking goes, women will end up so desperate for a man, any man, that they’ll mend their ways, crawling back to the men they once ignored and begging for another chance.
This is, of course, ridiculous; none of these men really are the great prizes they sometimes imagine themselves to be, and most women who’ve even heard of MGTOWs are more likely to say “good riddance” or “who are you again” to these men rather than “please take me back.”
In a recent posting in the MGTOW2 subreddit — the supposedly more thoughful sibling of the original MGTOW subreddit, one MGTOW called GefaehrlichesWunder breaks this news gently to his woman-avoiding brothers. “If you are part of MGTOW to teach women a lesson, read this,” he writes.
Sometimes I get the impression that some men who GTOW take themselves out of dating women to teach them a lesson as in “you won’t get me until you improve”.
The thing is that women who are beautiful just wait for another guy. And this other guy will come, sooner than you say “but”.
And chances are good that this other guy will be a lot more appealing than any MGTOW anyway. Because how could they not be?
The “teaching her a lesson” would only work, if all men sided with each other and singled out certain women until they changed.
But you cannot rely on other men.
They will just see you avoiding women as an opportunity, as you were an obstacle anyways.
Other men not in the MGTOW mindset will just be happy that you are not in their way.
Those dirty scabs!
But GefaehrlichesWunder has some advice for MGTOWs who aren’t willing to give up the dream of teaching women a lesson: Instead of “going their own way” literally, these guys should become the manipulative boyfriends of any of these women who will take them.
In other words, the only way to teach a woman is to start dating her to then educate her and use punishment and reward. You might be able to mold a better woman.
That’ll work out great. Women just love being treated like a Pavlovian dog.
A commenter called reaper555 isn’t convinced that this plan will work out quite as smoothly as GefaehrlichesWunder imagines it will.
MGTOW should not be about teaching women a lesson. Because there is an ample supply of blue simps and chads at their behest. If you are a not good-looking guy you are not teaching them a lesson – they could not give a fuck about you. These guys just enable her twisted behaviour.
Someone called Ricksalab89 is a little more optimistic:
The way I look at it is if all men went MGTOW, then women would just have to follow men. I think it would just be natural. They would never actually learn, but they would follow. So your happiness should be the main goal of MGTOW, women following is just an effect imo
But cleats4u doesn’t want any advice; he’s already living his best life — without women.
Let Rico, Tyrone and Chad have a go at her (all 3 together). Who cares. What happens to her in life is a spectators sport. Nothing I would want to get involved in even if I had the opportunity. I am nothing special for her (no one is). I know she would wipe her ass on me. I won’t stand in a line to be someones toilet paper. Been there done that. I’m good. Lol. Now I just count my money and all the free time I have. Don’t call me…I’ll call you sweetie.
Somehow I don’t think the women of the world are losing much sleep because guys like these have taken themselves off the market.
