    Does being persistent with women pay off or just make them think you are a beta phag

    I ask this because I generally just play it cool and let them come to me and do most of the work. I have bad game so this method usually works just fine for me. Once they figure out that I am in good shape/have abs its usually game over without much effort. Well lately this approach has not been working on one particular girl and it is leaving me perplexed.

    Rest in cliff style:

    - Trying to get together with ex from when I was 16.
    - Been texting her pretty persistently for a while trying to get her to hang out, go to a party ect.
    - To me I think its pretty obvious that I am interested. bitcheslovesmileys.jpg why else would I be hitting her up.
    - She always seems excited when she texts back but never follows through. Got to hang with her for like half an hour one time but that doesnt count in my opinion.

    HERE IS WHAT PERPLEXES ME:
    - Since we broke up(like 6 years ago) she has gotten chubby while I have gotten in pretty dam good shape. If I go out without a shirt on I get at least one compliment(no douche).
    - She is kind of a "goodie goodie". Thats actually why I broke up with her(strong dumb ass).
    - Dont know if she gets much attention from guys. No evidence that she has even had a bf since me 6 years ago lol. Must have had at least one though.
    - So shouldn't she be jumping for joy that a decent looking guy is making an effort to hang out with her? Makes no sense since by all social standards I am now out of her league.
    - Dont care if she is chubby/ not up to misc standards. I have been attracted to this girl since I met her at church when I was like 13, dont think I will ever not be attracted to her.
    - CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS ****?!?

    - One way or another something needs to be done. I feel like a phag thinking "I wonder if she likes me" as opposed to my generally emotionless demeanor(the way I like it)
    - I am willing to try the beta method if yall think it will work but I think it would just make me look like a creeper though since I dont really know her at all anymore.

    Girl on the right. Not up to misc standards/10 blah blah blah I dont care.

    Sometimes being persistent pays off. I mean all the people who say "1 attempt then next" are just playing the numbers where its easier and quicker to not put too much effort into it. But if you want this girl specifically you can be a little persistent and give it a few tries over to make something happen.

    be persistent

    you are only a betta phaggot if you do it out of neediness, like u do it and then u get anxious about if she responds or not

    make believe u are fishing... when u fish u throw out a bunch of lines and do not put too much hope into any single one and are not afraid to re cast in the same area. Only beta phaggots cast 1 rod into the same area over and over and get super anxious/excited with each cast only to be monumentally dissapointed when the fish are not biting because they can sense the desperation in the fisherman's ways.

    I havent been 100% interested in a girl for a while so I guess I am on that there beta time cuz. I hate this ****. I am usually an emotionless bastard because I refuse to let brain chemicals run my life like a woman.

    Seems like pretty solid advice to me. Feel free to chime in if you have a better idea.

    The way I see it I have three options.

    1. Straight up tell her "you are hot, I am hot, lets make babies" (not serious lol but you get the idea)
    2. Keep playing it cool and send the occasional text/hang out invitation.
    3. Hit on drunk wedding chicks at my work to forget/regain alphaness.

    looks like she's wearing the "please fk me" outfit. plus she's blond. guess you can't always judge a book by its cover.


    anyways, YES, op. being persistent works sometimes. thats how my dad first dated my mom, and how my teacher married his hot gymnast wife. they were eventually given a chance, and everything worked out

    Probably a bout a month. We keep going back and forth. She would text me to hang out and I would be busy then when I would text her to hang out she would be busy. Got to hang for like half an hour one night but it was pretty lame, she was playing babysitter for her hammered friend and it was hard to hold a convo because it was too loud in the bar to hear.

    Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret counsel of evildoers, From the tumult of those who do iniquity, Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword. They aimed bitter speech as their arrow, To shoot from.

    Persistence when you're trying to nail a chick = desperate and beta.

    Persistence with a legit female that is worth your time and wifey material = good move.

    As someone else mentioned, there is a difference between smooth and confident persistence and neediness/desperation.
