What Is Dread Game?

Dread Game (DG) is a phrase used within Red Pill communities to refer to a strategy involving uncertainty as a way to increase one’s perceived value in the eyes of a romantic partner.

Why It’s Important

A healthy understanding of Dread Game is important because it is a useful strategy for enhancing personal desirability. As a result, it can lead to more passionate and fulfilling relationships.

Dread Game is relevant and can be applied by both men and women. However, it is especially important for men because of a woman’s Hypergamous nature.

Don’t Be Fooled By The Name

Dread Game is often widely misunderstood due to its name. Thus, it’s essential to gain a true understanding of what it is and what it isn’t.

The term “dread” simply refers to the feeling someone experiences when thinking about the perceived loss of someone they are attracted to.

While the term itself may illicit discomfort, it’s important to remember that dread can be healthy. In fact, consciously or subconsciously, everyone experiences dread when in a relationship with someone they have Genuine Desire for.

How Does It Work

The goal of DG is to leverage the perceived sense of uncertainty as a way to evoke a healthy amount of jealousy in a partner which ultimately enhances one’s attraction and therefore creates sexual tension and chemistry.

While the right amount of uncertainty increases attraction, too much uncertainty decreases attraction. While the right amount of certainty increases attraction, too much certainty decreases attraction.

Active Versus Passive Dread Game

It’s essential to understand the distinction between the two types of dread game: active and passive. Active Dread is unhealthy. Passive Dread is healthy.

Active Dread is derived from doubt. Passive Dread is derived from confidence.

Active Dread decreases one’s desirability. Passive Dread increases one’s desirability.

Active Dread is overt manipulation. Passive Dread is covert influence.

Active dread is trying to change your partner. Passive dread is trying to change yourself.

Active Dread is an artificial instigation of uncertainty. Passive Dread is a natural by-product of pursuing self-mastery.
