I think sometimes we are over-complicating the way the girl thinks when in
reality her thinking isn't necessarily complex, just different. And this can
vary from girl to girl. You always want to simplify it. Like general truths
and principles rather than case by case by case analysis. Although this can be
helpful sometimes.

I thought it was really good the first time I read it. Then I started ASF and
I began to question a lot of "The System" and now I've come full circle on a
few things and I realize his "interest level" theory, among other things, is
very sound. It basically puts things on a relative scale. Like a fuck up with
a girl with 55% interest level is much more costly than a fuck up with a girl
with 80% interest level. It's largely relative, rather than absolute which is
what is often preached here.

You do need a tighter game for HB's, especially in presence of their bitch

Right, if a girl likes a guy enough she will be much more forgiving of a fuck
up than with a guy she doesn't care too much about.

Right, you can pass shit tests in your mind but were they shit tests in her
mind. If you're always struggling to keep control and *never* ever do
something which can be considered weak you can come across as an insecure man.

Because you're so close to that 50%, usually.
