Re: Showing LOVE/EMOTION...without being AFC.
I think us pickup artists need to understand about expressing emotions the right way and not just shy away from it. Such as understanding the difference between showing anger and reacting to her. They are not the same thing. An angry man who has a stern voice and looks you right in the eye without raising his voice is a very powerful figure. Not beta at all. They actually done studies that found that people were more obedient and respectful towards angry people than happy people. Again, that doesn't mean people who explode and yell getting all emotional. Just people who are not afraid to show their anger.
I usually have a few things in mind when I tell my gf I love her or any other sweet thing. Am I coming from a place of power or not? Am I saying it for her approval, or because she did/said something for/to me that makes me want to let her know. I usually avoid it during any arguments we might have. I don't want her thinking that she has to "misbehave" for me to tell her I love her. Whatever you put your attention on, you give it power. Thanks for starting this thread. Think it's about time this is discussed.
