Total Market Value (TMV)

Last night, after the kids went to bed, my wife and I got into this conversation about the SMV (Sexual Market Value) curve. She is turning 39 soon and is worried that her value as a wife is diminishing as she is aging. She was not s*** testing me, this was a real concern.

It got me thinking. The SMV curve is not totally accurate for our situation. It is based mostly on the things we have little control over, age and looks for women, money and looks for men. While this is primarily the driving force on the open dating market, it is not wholly adequate to describe our situation. As a married couple, there are other things that play a huge part, Continue reading “Total Market Value (TMV)”

Dating Mormons

Recently, I was introduced to the concept of AWALT (All Women Are Like That). I would have to say yes and no. Certainly, there are biological characteristics that all women have. (They tend to be more emotional than men for instance) But I reject the notion that all of them are these self-centered, narcissistic spoiled brats that are portrayed so often on various websites. My wife happens to be very kind hearted and has sacrificed a lot to hold her standards of morality and to care for me and my kids.

Sure, there are more than enough crappy women out there, but there are some decent ones too. Knowing where and how to look is key. Continue reading “Dating Mormons”

Annals of Dread Game

Someone mentioned in the comments the other day about how there are so many quality articles that were published well before many of you were regularly following us.  With the suggestion of pulling some of our older posts from the archives, I present you dear readers with a few of my favorite posts from the 12 Levels of Dread series along with a quick description of each  to give you an idea of the topics covered in each article.

Writing about the 12 Levels of Dread in detail was an enjoyable experience as I felt there was much left unsaid in the original Reddit post on the subject.

For those of you who are new and are still navigating through the hundreds of posts on A King’s Castle, I hope you glean something of value from these articles.   Continue reading “Annals of Dread Game”

How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong

Some of you have probably noticed that I haven’t been as active in the comments section this week as I normally am.  The reason for this is because my father in law has been in the hospital the past few days due to a possible spider bite that has developed into a full-on skin/blood infection.

The hospital he is staying at is waiting on a culture to develop so they can begin treating what inflicting him specifically Continue reading “How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong”

ZFG Revisited

J.Nyx often writes about the ZFG mentality and why each man should begin incorporating this mindset into their life.  ZFG, or “Zero Fucks Given,”  is one of the Red Pill concepts that simply states a man shouldn’t care about what others think about them.

Some guy at the bar lobs an insult at you? Ignore it.

Wife tries to pick a fight? Laugh it off.

ZFG has its merits, I would never argue against that, but it is possible to take the ZFG mentality too far to where it has negative repercussions on your own life and the lives of those close to you. Continue reading “ZFG Revisited”

Always a Leader

I took a day off Monday to hit up an amusement park with another couple that my wife and I are friends with. They have 4 kids, we have 3 and on this day we just decided to get away from being parents for a day, or so I thought.  It turned out that what seemed to be a normal, functioning couple turned out to be quite the contrary which lead to some action on my part.  Today I’ll discuss our adventure and how I had to lead even when I didn’t expect it.

Hypergamy and Assholes

For most men just learning about the Red Pill, they often come across two key principles that a lot of other principles are built upon:

  • Women are hypergamous, meaning they will search for a mate that’s a higher perceived status than they are, or “marrying up.”
  • Women dig men who are assholes.

Many blue pill men out there take umbrage to these rules, especially the second, but today I am going to shed some light on how these two rules are interrelated and why women digging assholes can be somewhat hyperbolic. Continue reading “Hypergamy and Assholes”
