Loving the RSD philosophy mainly from Tyler and sometimes Julian. I love how RSD wants you to become successful in every aspect of your life besides being good at girls. Loving the book recommendations by these guys. With that being said, I feel like as I'm self developing, becoming the best possible me I want to surround myself with people like that around me and I feel like my current friends don't want that and I feel like eventually we will stop hanging out. Do you have any experiences like this? Have you lost friends because of RSD?

I've lost none. I even got back in contact with old friends and got a shit load of new friends, both male and female.

But, then again, I was always very independant and only befriended people I like.

0, I've only gained friends.  I've lost friends from hanging out with girls rather than them.  But they weren't real friends anyways.

I think a lot of guys worry about having a bust up with their old friends or missing them when you don't see them but I don't think it happens like that. All my tight friends respect my doing game, although one or two of the naturals are perplexed that I would need to. Some of the peripheral friends think its weird, especially as they are settled down now, but I can still socialise with them. Not drinking has been a bigger social issue with my friends than doing game to be honest.As for upgrading your social circle, it's not really that machavellian, I just enjoy hanging out with some guys more than others and make more effort to see them, for example I have some guys that are super into the gym and lifting so I tend to meet them in the gym, talk about working out, lift with them and socialise, which means I'm busy when other guys want to hang out.I have also met some quality wings that have evolved into friends outside of game and some others who haven't, but I still like and respect for trying.

Only the ones I choose not to associate with (negative people) some of my old chode friends see it as "manipulative" but they still respect my lifestyle and I respect theirs. I typically only go out with my friends who are in the game any more becasue they have the same vision.

If you look at this from a different perspective, I think this becomes more clear that you should continue to love your friends but its in your best interest to find friends with he same interest. I went to school for business,  I became so passionate about finance and investments to the point that I started to suround myself around people from college that had the same interest and liked to bounce investments ideals with eachother.  I became really deep into investments and started to make money.  As I started to make money, I tried to get my friends at home into investments to help them with their financial situation and help them elevate their standard of living.  When I started to explain what I got passionate about with my friends, instead, they fought me; all they wanted to do is play video games and have sex with the ugly women that had an ass.  I started to feel the succee with making money and being introduced to new people and things that I couldn't do before.   At this point, I had to make the decision, to continue to enjoy the new things that I am doing or go back to playing video games and working some part time job for my friends to feel comfortable with me.  I asked myself a few questions about what I should do with my life. Do I enjoy what I am doing right now? Would what I am doing now be so appealing if my life was so interesting before?  After reaching to this point in my life, do I want to go backwarded? There are studies that state that your income and personality are like the 5 closes people around you.  Are the 5 closes people around you are where you want to be in your life, if not, then that should tell you the progress you want to make.  This doesn't mean to tell people around you to fuck off but if the people around you don't have the will to progress beyound the point that they are, find people that do.  I believe that the people at RSD are always standing on each other shoulder to improve their game and that should be an example of what type of people you should have around you.   Below is a video of Tyler going into this that I seen awhile back:

I never really had friends. I did have some at school and, you know, it were just casual friends, but as i was introverted and boring it never really clicked. But now.. if I see these guys again and I speak to them they notice the change of the past year and actually respect me a lot more. Even though I care about friends, they aren't important for me to be sad about when I don't speak to them or lose them. I make friends everywhere in life. The only thing you need is 1 friend which you can talk with 1 time per week or every day, which you can tell everything, and he will always be there. Probably your wing.

I had a friend start to think I was weird after I gave him some advice on how to get his gf back. he had already been dumped by the same girl for the same reason he was getting clingy and buying her lots of gifts. she cheated on him each time yet he keeps running back to her, she's not even hot.

I told him to be more independent and stop buying her gifts, to be more alpha.

later my best friend told me he was talking shit behind my back. saying shit like how could I give him advice when I haven't had a gf. why would I want a gf? most of the guys I know who have gfs are under the thumb and have broken spirits and no money. I mean that's what girls use beta males for...money.
