How to Steal a Steak off the Devil’s Plate (12 Universal Traits of Men Who Date Out of Their League)
Do you know what it means to steal a steak off the Devil’s plate?
It means to pull a fast one or beat the system.
Check out this video I recently made (It relates to last week’s article).
I recorded it a little while back but it’s gold.
It takes me only 4 minutes to tell you everything you need to know about value and dating hot chicks.
As I mentioned in last week’s article, the golden standard from a value standpoint is:
TALL STRONG HANDSOME
Those are the most universally desired physical traits that women look for. If you have just that going for you (along with good social skills), the world will be yours.
Naturally, most players (guys who get a lot of action) fit this bill.
There’s no big secret as to why big, handsome alpha males get all the girls.
This is what women universally VALUE.
However, this article is not about them.
This article is about the ANOMALY.
The blip on the radar.
The wrench in the machine.
Looks, money, and status matter because they increase your value in the eyes of women.
The better looking you are, the more money you have, and the more popular you are equates to more value you have upon initial interaction.
However, there are instances when men are able to bypass this and essentially beat the system.
I have seen countless examples of men who have consistently dated out of their league.
I am a product of that.
A broke, short, Filipino man is not supposed to win the heart of a model quality, green-eyed, blonde, Russian girl.
He’s was not supposed to beat out tall, rich white guys. My parents should not still be married today.
Yet, my father overcame all odds and did it. I’m here because of it.
Obviously, my father is the first man I’ve seen “beat the system” but he’s hardly the last.
I’ve seen guys with every type of perceived “flaw” kill it and truly live out their ideal dating life.
Short guys. Bald guys. Overweight guys. Stereotypical Asian guys. Stereotypical nerds. Broke guys.
You name it. I have many friends that date out of their league. I (we) also see countless examples of this in public.
For some reason these guys are able to beat the system and score chicks out of their league.
HINT: The reason RARELY has to do with money.
This article is about the how and the why.
The truth is that while these men may exhibit low value in certain aspects of their brand, they make up for it with certain intangibles that women are drawn in towards.
Above all else, women RESPECT men who exhibit these traits because they are strong.
This list is for those of you who want to date out of your league and in the process, steal a steak off the devil’s plate.
1. They possess STRONG, COMPETENT hands.
After your brain, your hands are your most important tools.
You can tell how strong a man is just by his hands.
Strong men have strong hands with strong grips and give firm handshakes.
Weak men have weak hands with weak grips and give girly handshakes.
Lifting weights does not mean you have strong hands.
Strength is both body and mind.
It’s a weathering process.
Strong, competent hands are the result of experience actually using your hands to do useful every day shit.
Every guy I know that gets chicks out of their league possesses strong, competent hands.
This is why blue collar jobs are valuable experience for young men.
Strong, competent hands can seemingly do it all.
They know how to use tools. They can fix shit. They have been in fights and know how to defend themselves. They can cook. They can clean.
And above all, they have powerful grip strength.
Ever hear the saying: “Get a grip.”
It’s true. Regardless of whatever “disadvantage” they might have, these men have a grip on life.
They are cool, calm, and collected.
Strong, competent hands are the foundation of this.
2. They unleash the animal when necessary.
Violence gives you power. It’s make you stronger. Not surprisingly, it gives you confidence.
You want to know what confidence is on a primitive level?
Confidence is knowing that you have the ability to destroy any guy you come across.
Actual experience giving beatings (and taking a few) reinforces this.
A big reason why guys lack confidence today is because we live in a pacifistic culture.
Many men go through their entire lives without getting in to a fight.
Today, when someone disrespects or “tries” you, it’s better to “be the bigger person” and “walk away.”
The consequences for any resort to violence are harsh.
The system comes down hard against those who resort to violence.
It starts within the education system and continues with THE LAW.
When I was in high school, anybody involved in a fight faced automatic expulsion… even if the person was just a victim.
That’s right. My junior year of high school a kid got kick out of school for getting jumped by three kids.
That’s how pussified we’ve become.
Men who date up are not pussified because they can’t afford to be. They must be strong.
They have been in fights.
They don’t let people disrespect them. They don’t let people push them around.
They are FEARLESS in the face of conflict.
They speak up and use their voice.
They resort to violence when they must defend themselves.
When push comes to shove, they crack skulls open and deal with the consequences later.
3. They set the tone from the get go.
Ever hear this story?
A dude starts dating a chick.
He is so happy that he got a girlfriend that he doesn’t know what to do with himself.
His girlfriend has guy friends that she occasionally hangs out with.
Maybe she has lunch with them.
Maybe she occasionally meets up with them for drinks.
Maybe she joins them for their guy’s night out.
Maybe she’s still talks with her ex and they still hang out.
Eventually, she has “one little slip up” and ends up cheating.
The boyfriend finds out and usually does 1 of 2 things:
- He is saddened by it but eventually accepts it. “Everyone deserves a second chance.”
- He tries to move on but keeps bringing it up. He doesn’t pull the trigger and break up with her because he doesn’t have any other options. Eventually, the girl breaks up with him because he’s not “giving her space.”
Ever hear that one? Of course you have.
This never happens to men who consistently date up.
They’re too sharp. They know the game.
And they know they have a target on their back because they are susceptible to other dudes pulling the robbery.
They are prepared because they set standards at the beginning of the relationship.
Every dude has their own standards but every badass motherfucker abides by these universal standards that they set for their chick:
- “There’s no communication with other guys.”
- “There’s no hanging out and grabbing drinks/lunch with other guys.”
- “There are no guy friends. I’m the only guy in your life.”
Strong men have high standards. There’s no discussion. There’s no excuses.
Your chick listens to you and respects you or she doesn’t. In that case, she’s out the door.
Because these men are inherently strong, they will end the relationship if there is a breach of trust.
4. They have strong eye contact.
Strong eye contact illustrates strength and confidence.
When it comes to beautiful women, strong eye contact illustrates FEARLESSNESS.
Many men are intimidated by beautiful women because they don’t believe they are good enough.
Men who consistently date up are not intimidated by a woman’s beauty.
Really, they’re not intimidated by anyone. (They will stare down dudes who try them. Look at #2.)
They know they are good enough based upon the simple fact that they are strong, competent men.
They have the ability to hold eye contact with a hot chick and not look away.
5. They are sweet talkers and have the gift of gab.
There is no such thing as a regular guy (average value) with poor social skills who bangs hot chicks.
It does not happen.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or does not know any better.
They matter even more for guys who want to date up.
Tall, strong, handsome men can stare a chick down and make her pussy wet.
Guys who are trying to date up usually do not have the physical presence to do this.
However, they make up for it with their ability to sweet talk a chick.
They have a way with words.
They know exactly what to say and when to say it.
They are quick on their feet and react in the moment.
In reality, this is true for all guys who bang a lot of hot chicks.
6. They have a lot of friends (acquaintances).
Men who date up rarely (if ever) meet their chicks through cold approach.
They meet them through other friends or “convenient small talk” (more on that later).
In other words, they run social circle game.
They know that the odds are not in their favor if they were to run around all day and night cold approaching chicks.
Instead, they play the game on their terms because they understand this fundamental truth:
MORE FRIENDS = MORE OPPORTUNITIES
7. They are LEADERS.
“I’ll handle it.”
“I’ll take care of it.”
“Don’t worry, I got this.”
This is the type of language strong men use with women.
Women feel secure when they hear a dude say these phrases because this reassures them that the man is in control.
This is the way it’s supposed to be.
The man should always be in control.
They make the decisions.
They are the leaders.
I always used to think it looked a little funny watching my 5’3” father take my 5’9” mother’s hand and lead her around.
Now, I know the real jokes are the low testosterone beta males who are being led around by their nagging wives.
8. They set high standards for themselves.
Men who date up have high self-esteems.
They don’t settle for scraps.
They believe in themselves and they know what they are worth.
So they go out and get it.
They don’t step up to the plate, looking to settle for singles.
Their mentality falls in line with “swing for the fence and knock it out of the park.”
9. They understand that beauty does not translate to perfection.
Banging a hot chick is every guy’s goal growing up.
We all fantasize about crushing young, fresh puss when we grow up.
We think these girls are going to be perfect in every way.
Beauty does not translate to perfection.
Hot girls can have flaws.
Guys who date girls out of their league know this and as a result, they never put the pussy on the pedestal.
They don’t worship women and treat them like goddesses.
They treat them however they deserve to be treated.
10. They have a knack for being in the right place at the right time.
I don’t have any explanation for this other than they have strong internal compasses.
They know where to go and when to go there.
They are natural strategists and cross paths with women at the right time.
For this, they are rewarded.
11. They love people and they love striking up conversations with strangers.
They are extroverts.
They are not loud, flashy, boisterous people.
By extroverts, I mean that they are quick to make small talk with strangers.
They don’t initiate small talk with a hidden agenda.
They start talking to strangers just for the simple fact that they love interacting with new people.
They are socially acute in that when they sense an opportunity, they will take it.
With regards to women, they will ask her out if they sense that she is single and available.
They understand that opportunities are gifts and they capitalize.
12. They are optimistic. They only focus on the positive.
Do they know they have weaknesses in their personal brand?
Do they know they that this takes away from their value?
Of course they know.
But they just don’t give a shit.
They remain grateful for what they have and instead choose to focus on WHAT THEY DO BRING TO THE TABLE.
My father had so little growing up and came from the gutter.
It was a miracle that he made it to 20.
It was another miracle that he made it to the United States and managed to survive.
When he met my mom, he didn’t let negative thoughts creep in.
He didn’t focus on being broke, short, or Asian.
He KNEW that HE WAS THE PRIZE.
He knew how to survive. To him, there was no competition because no one had his life experience.
He also knew that he could destroy any dude that wanted to test him.
Life didn’t just harden him… it turned him in to a piece of iron.
This list is about filling the holes in your brand with certain intangibles.
No one is perfect and you don’t have to be perfect to score hot chicks that are out of your league.
However, you must make up for your weaknesses in other areas.
You can’t just be a complete nothing because then you will get nothing.
If you want to believe that, “it’s what on the inside that counts”, then your inside must be strong.
It must shine bright and be extra special.
That’s how you beat the odds.
That’s how you steal a steak off the Devil’s plate.
If you want to get stronger (both physically and mentally), only the best will get you there.
