I, um...don't really get that. At all. Harry Potter doesn't exactly have a lot of trouble finding girls if he wants them, so he has no need for the whiny-baby "I'm-nice-guy" or "I'm-not-a-nice-guy" whatever routine. People like Radcliffe don't have time for that crap.

Honestly, a lot of guys do fake the whole nice-guy thing and cry about how they can't get a girl to play with their dingaling. You know they aren't really nice guys because they can't keep the act up long enough to work. Bona fide jerks don't have that problem because they don't hide what they are, and girls who are into that enjoy their predictability and consistency. Genuine nice guys get similar results for the same reason--it's not an act. You're allowed to be a db and possibly get sex. Just first make sure girls understand where they stand with you. Then check your sense of entitlement at the door. That tends to be a turnoff whether you're a NG, Jerk, or standard issue, run-of-the-mill, no artificial flavors added DB.

It's only easy for him, because nobody calls him a "Nice Guy TM".

The last I heard about Radcliffe's wealth, it was coasting in at about $110 million or more. He can afford to be exactly who he is.

But, before we criticize his success, it should also be considered that he was diagnosed with dyspraxia ( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebri ... raxia.html ) also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder. Like autism, it is a lifelong condition, and is often a comorbid of autism ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developme ... nsequences ). As such, Radcliffe's charities include the University of Cambridge Autism Research Centre where he is a patron ( https://www.autismresearchcentre.com/patrons ).

So, he could kick gnomes if he chooses (he doesn't), and I would still respect his social conscience on matters that help many of us in his community.

"Friend zoning" is a stupid concept. It implies that these people would have had a chance if they acted earlier. While it could be the case it is more likely they were never in the running. So either way it is a non-concept. It applies just as much to guys.

I'm not a fan of the feminist community, but that is a separate issue.

What is definitely true is bitterness and resentment is very unattractive. It is a massive drag to be around someone like that.

There is a element of true to what Daniel is saying.

Even if you are not a feminist you can't deny that most of us are sexual beings, and if you had such a status it is becuase they don't want to sleep with you.

However sex might not be the only objective.

Ok so the whole world's still conflating fiction with reality. Boring.

I don't even see anything wrong with some psychology of a friendzone heuristic. The problem comes in the application of the term. The individual woman has not rejected the complainant. A massive conspiracy had determined that he will never get to play in her underwear area, backed by progressives, celebrities, educators, and too many other SJWs to name. It couldn't possibly be her preference or even his pathetic mindset.

This comment railing against a celebrity's innocuous comments is very angry and bitter-sounding. If you are struggling getting along with women, might I suggest it may have something to do with that anger and bitterness showing through and scaring women away? If a guy I was on a date with or who I was friends with said something like this to me like you've said here, I would feel uncomfortable and unsafe and would look for an excuse to leave and not talk to him anymore. Have you ever talked to a therapist about this anger? Maybe that would help.

I'm disappointed to see so much bitterphobia on here.

I fail to see how that is so. Can you explain how I am bitter but the OP is not?

Can you explain why you say this? Because it's not apparent to me.

I'm curious how you can be bitter and bitter phobic simultaneously. :lol:
