I've had a lot of experience with criminals. I was raised with them. I mentioned I once saw two guys shoot it out in a bar; one died. The other, who lived, broke one of my friend's jaw with one punch because he was with the guy's "girlfriend." That guy also ended up working for my father as a carpenter, although he didn't know what I was, since I was under the pool table. I never bothered to inform him who I was, and if he knew, he never mentioned it.
There is very few little about love in the Manosphere, and nothing about how criminal some of the advice really is.

His very way of thinking is antithetical to loving
"This blog is not the place to define love. However, if one agrees that a love relationship has the following qualities, it is accurate to say that the criminal has no concept of what love is.
A give and take relationship (reciprocity), often giving more than receiving;
Putting oneself in the place of the other person;
Being trustworthy and able to trust others;
"One should not be fooled by a criminal's use of the word love.' More often than not, that word enters his vocabulary to refer either to sex or to sentiment toward another person. Many an offender has told me how much he loves his mother—the person who has always been there for him no matter what he has done. Yet when this beloved individual opposes him, attempts to restrict him, or stands up to him, she becomes a target of his rage. She is to behave in line with his objectives. Otherwise, he will turn on her and she can become his victim. This is not love!
"The criminal is self-centered. He does not put himself in the place of others. Therefore, he does not think about what his partner, parent, child, or friend is experiencing. Because of his secrecy, his one-sided view of situations, and his personal narcissicism, he is inherently untrustworthy. He is a taker, not a giver. He 'loves' someone as long as that person is his personal pawn, subject to his control."
