Red Pill Theory“I’ve been hurt in the past.” (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by TRP VanguardArchwinger

I used to meet a lot of women who allegedly loved me more than any man they’d ever had previously, but went to great lengths to never, ever have sex with me. They weren’t virgins; many had quite the history with men. But I still never got anywhere. Their reasoning was grounded in woman-logic: "I've been hurt by a lot of assholes in the past, and I really care about you, so I want to do this right" or some variation of that.

If you’re a loser, upon hearing that, you’ll think to yourself, “Oh, joy! I’m totally not an asshole, and she notices that and is rewarding me with a real [non-sexual] relationship instead of a shallow one that’s going to fail! I’m so lucky! I’ll wait forever for such a wonderful person! I should find something nice to do for her right now to let her know how grateful I am!”

Here's how that woman-logic sounds to a real guy: "Other men worse than you have gotten farther with me, in less time, with less of an emotional and financial investment. But because I care more about you, I am making you jump through hoops and making you spend a greater amount of time and resources to get less far with me. Because I care more about you. What? Why are you looking at me like that? This makes perfect sense. Yes, giving less to people I care about more makes sense."

Here's what the girl really means: "I've pegged you for a chump. I don't think you have options with other women, and I don't think you're willing to walk away, so I'm going to frame this relationship on my terms. We fuck when I want to, and that's going to be after I've made you jump through a bunch of hoops to prove you're my little compliant bitch who's going to give me all the time, resources, and validation I want, at will. If you were a real man, you’d have fucked me already, but I’ve cast you for the role of bitch. I don’t care about you. I care about me. I don’t even like you. Sex is reserved for real men. You’re not a real man. You’re my bitch.”

Here’s the kicker: Most women don’t know that they really mean this. They just know that the validation feels good, and that a guy who keeps validating them without sex makes them feel powerful, happy, and better about themselves. When any woman hears the line of girl logic, “I’ve been hurt in the past,” it makes perfect sense to them – she’s screwed up by giving it up too easily before and wants to stop screwing up. By stop screwing up, they mean that she needs to do a better job of withholding sex to bait men into doing shit for her to earn it. They don’t know they mean that, but that’s what they mean.

Only in the eyes of a woman does it make sense to give less to a man that you love more. But that’s the rationalization kicking in. If a woman is giving you less, and making you do more for it, that’s the exact opposite of loving you more. Being stingy with affection is the opposite of love. Requiring an exchange of favors rather than just giving of yourself is the opposite of love.

It’s a difficult truth to admit and to accept, not just for us, but for women, too. I think on some level, they want to love that nice guy who’s going out of his way for them, but they just don’t. They can’t. But they tell themselves that they do, and that they’re just taking it slow to avoid getting hurt like they have in the past. Because they love him more. And if things don’t work out, he’s still a great guy – the chemistry just wasn’t there. And if they slip up and screw some hot guy from work, it was a mistake. They don’t love that guy. They love the nice guy, don’t they? They were just drunk.

“I’ve been hurt in the past and want this to be different,” is nothing more than an insidious shit test. By complementing you, telling you that you’re different from every other guy, that you’re not an asshole or a douche, and that she loves you more than every previous man, you’re off-guard when in combination with all of that praise, she denies you sex. Because she loves you more.

"I think on some level, they want to love that nice guy who’s going out of his way for them, but they just don’t."

Replace "nice guy" with husband and the amount of guys blindsided by this would be truly shocking.

A relationship/"I love you" is not something static; at best it is a weak verbal contract being assessed and reassessed daily, whether you are aware of that or not.

The hardest part of TRP for me to swallow. I swear as soon as I heard that "I love you" I let my guard down. "She loves me! I can be my real self!" The hard work was only beginning. Needless to say, I crashed and burned each time I got into an LTR, despite holding most of the cards at the outset.

[–]zernoise 14 points15 points  (5 children)

The "I love you" part is def the hardest part. I go from a professional heavy weight boxer to an average Joe getting beaten on by a professional heavy weight boxer.

[–]bleh321 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Heh it's okay to display some betatude once the "I love you" messages start flying.

To me everytime a girl gives me the "I love you" she is looking for some reassurance. I would rarely ever initiate a "I love you" - give your woman the opportunity and pleasure of giving her emotional world to you

[–]heyarnold 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"She loves me! I can be my real self!" The hard work was only beginning.

You should get to the point where maintaining yourself isn't "hard work", so when some woman says she loves you, there is no "letting your guard down". Staying healthy/working out/etc are not things you do to get women, you do those things for yourself.

[–]torrentialtomato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To me, it seems more of a mindset. When I was in between marriages, I was RP without realizing it. If by the second or third date, no sex? Then goodbye. Starting being demanding or nagging? Then goodbye. I always had several plates spinning, and an abundance mentality.

But when I settled down and married (either time), it was all about satisfying and making my wife happy. In both marriages, I married high-maintenance, hard-to-satisfy women. Why the hell did I do this? My only excuse is that I didn't know any better. Geez, what I sucker I am. The divorce from my first marriage has just about bankrupted me. My second marriage is on shaky ground and I will lose my house if we split apart. But I don't see it lasting long term.

Two strikes and I'm done. I'm never going to remarry if this second marriage ends. Something happens to my head when I'm decide to marry someone.

Reminds me of the old joke:

Me: Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I hit my head with a hammer!!

Doctor: Don't hit your head with a hammer anymore.

[–]HeadingRed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did that a couple of times. Finally learned. Never say it first. Get your guard up when she says it. Have your response ready. After a couple of weeks you need to think about this- she will say it one day and you can't be tongue tied here.

Or just say no and walk on. Either way, you need a responseaction plan.

[–]angryadult 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Married men need RP more than single men. It's too fucking easy to fall into the trap of the comfortable loser. I mean, if you go and work out, dress well, keep up your confidence, what's the worst that can happen? You go back on the market as a hot commodity. The best case is that she realizes she needs to up her game (working out, dressing up, makeup, sex) to keep you around, because there will be plenty of women willing to vulture you.

[–]Endorsed Contributordown_with_whomever 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Even worse is a post-wall woman clinging to a beta-husband whom she resents yet cannot escape. This is the source of every "marriage is hell" stereotype while simultaneously providing the appearance of NAWALT.

[–]1kick6 26 points27 points  (8 children)

That's just it. It's not a statement, it's an assessment. A women's love is based on her need of a man. When she says "I love you" she's really saying "I still need you...do you need me?" But women don't want a man that needs them.

It's true, but see this article -- women prefer a man who has more important things going on than her. The emotional pressure of being the center of a man's world is totally crushing to a woman.

[–]Tyger-Tyger 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm a fan of Roissy/Heartiste's 3/2 rule. For every 3 texts, "I love you", etc she gives you, you give her 2 back. It tracks right to the #1 rule of relationships: the person who needs the other person the least controls the relationship. It's all about frame control and "having hand".

They say that shit to us and for a second they don't realize they are rubbing our faces in shit. I get to wait and prove my feelings before you put out while we both know you've been passed around like a joint between stoners? You are not like that anymore? Oh lucky fucking me.

[–][deleted] 81 points82 points  (13 children)

It was having this simple realization in highschool that led me to the redpill.

She goes to parties gets wasted and fucks morons, but because I met her under different circumstances I have to do the boyfriend thing and give her 6 months of the princess treatment just hoping I'll get to fuck her? Fuck. That. That is not how value works. You can't have a nice car, treat it like shit for a few years, then go to a dealership and say "yeah...I used to treat this car like it was worth 5K...but I've changed my mind and I want 100K for it now."

[–]FindMitch 100 points101 points  (2 children)

Yeep ignore what she is saying to you. She doesn't actually love you more and she is not as attracted to you as the other guys she's laid. You're nice, polite, sensitive, letting her dominate the relationship and calling the shots, and you're not going for what you really want (ass). You give off an aura of neediness and emotional attachment. This problem never should happen in the first place if you took the correct steps in escalating and being a man. Some helpful tips for anyone who doesn't ever want this to happen.

a. You're a man and you want pussy Your actions should make this very clear. You shouldn't show fear or hesitancy. You touch her on the first date however you can, then you kiss and make-out. You make out then you touch her where ever the eff you want. If she shows LMR, you back off a little and then keep trying. If she's totally not having it and says "You're not getting sex tonight," you respond, "Oh, just give me a week's time." Then you take your coat and you bid her good night and wait for her sure-as-hell text message to meet up again later.

b. You got options and you know it. Make her know it Stop texting so much, stop calling so much, and please stop worrying about what she thinks of you. That fear is not real is will only hold you back. Know that you can pick up other women (many of which hotter, smarter, and easier to lay) than her. She is option 1 but you have a fucking menu of options. Show her through your actions that you don't need her and you're really there just to entertain yourself.

c. Be in the power position You call the shots of where you guys eat dinner. You set the time for when you meet up. If she says something out of line, call her out on it. Debate. Argue. Let her know you won't take her shit. Make her earn your affection. She should be the one eventually asking you to be her boyfriend; you will never be more emotionally invested than her and if you are, then kiss your chick goodbye.

She's sleeping around, he tells her every time she gets dumped that she should stop dating jerks. She says he's a nice guy and he'll find a girl to make him happy. She goes and blows someone else. He cries but think she'll give him a shot someday if he's nice enough.

[–]2comment 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Don't worry, when she hits 32, she'll come around. She might even stay faithful a full month after marriage.

[–]FortunateBum 2 points3 points  (3 children)

This guy needs help.

[–][deleted] 47 points48 points  (2 children)

I don't have to know them to spell out what's happening here. This will go on for about 6-9 months and he'll one day lay it all out on the line for her (via text message) and she won't respond. After 7 minutes of no response he'll get nervous and either apologize or say that someone took his phone and sent his pussified attempt to woo her (most likely both). She'll shrug it off and roll over and keep sucking someone else's dick while her phone keeps buzzing from him calling her and leaving voicemails throughout the night.

[–]TRP VanguardArchwinger[S] 72 points73 points  (1 child)

Always ignore a woman's words. Focus on her actions. She says you're awesome and she loves you to death. But no sex. She says previous guys were assholes she didn't love. But sex. She's not telling you what she wants in a man. She's showing you.

Also, you have to address her subconscious motivations. A woman is actually giving less to a guy, not because she loves him more, but because she thinks he lacks options and won't walk. She's giving the absolute minimum necessary to extract what she wants. If you walk, she'll probably just replace you with the next loser. What you need to do is raise that minimum bar. Have other female prospects, look awesome, be successful, and the subconscious drive to win you over will kick in. Suddenly, you're sexy and the minimum effort necessary to win you over goes up.

      You raise an interesting issue I've been pondering for some time.

      When women are craving emotion/drama, when they are trying to push your buttons, and you just walk away whilst maintaining your power and composure letting them know you're happy to leave, and then later they come back to you with adoration - what was it they were hoping you would do originally? If you lose your shit and blow up what do they gain?

      [–]Tringi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I would LOVE to know. I'm pondering on it right now since it is happening again to me at this very moment. Girl is obviously attracted to me, but keeps trying to piss me off with stupid bullshit, as if she is some kind of unique gem. Logic and arguments obviously don't work at all on her.

      I had girls try this shit before and even though we were good friends (with benefits) when I walked away telling her to call me once she pulls herself together, only few ever did. It was probably for the better in the hindsight, but I never understood how a girl can drop everything, months of relationship, just like that.

      [–]RedPillScare 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Say nothing. Just soft next her.

      Saying anything feeds her need for drama and portrays you as a bitch.

      [–]Schipannschwahh 21 points22 points  (1 child)

      I had a scenario not quite like this one, but earlier on in the relationship she tried pulling the "well looks like I'm not giving you sex." I hadn't done anything wrong to deserve it, she just wanted to establish her vagina's authority over me. We were in a bar somewhere with friends. I responed loud enough for them to hear. "I at least still have two hands, a heart beat, and a high speed internet conection." Needless to say she was pissed. I made her authority irrelevant and established my own afterwards. That was the vital point, regardless of how words played out. We dated for over a year after than and she began to crave sex as often as I did. The point I'm making is if she steers the relationship in a way you don't like, you have to make it clear that you see it differently. If she can't meet your criteria then it won't work, plain and simple. Otherwise you'll waste time and effort for a type of relationship you didn't want. If you order a clubhouse sandwich at a restaurant and they say you can only have the tofu buger are you going to do it? Hell no! No transaction! You can't let them forget that you can walk away and for any reason you feel is suitable.

      [–]through_a_ways 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      I think of it as men being the sellers, and women being the buyers. Women are undoubtedly in a buyer's market, but sellers can deny service to whomever they want.

      [–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

      Here’s the kicker: Most women don’t know that they really mean this.

      This is critical to understanding the red pill. I see a lot of people here on TRP shitting all over women for being 'conniving' and 'cunning' and all that. That may be true in certain cases (e.g. women stabbing each other in the back) but in most cases they're not going out of their way to be like that; their biochemistry guides them into patterns which these people over-rationalize as 'Women are evil' because, just like bluepill betas, they ascribe rational and measured planning and thought to every single action a woman takes.

      You can't approach this from a dude's mindset. Things that men do are influenced by their neurochemistry and controlled by their will. Things that women do are influenced by their will and controlled by their neurochemistry.

      [–]Sabarot 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      I want to see more comments like this on TRP. The teachings here have saved my sanity and I'm much much happier in my life, as a man, and with women as a result.

      BUT, once you get this stuff you have to realise that women aren't like a marketing or advertising company. These companies have made a science out of systematically exploiting consumers psychologically to get the advantage over them. They know what they are doing every step of the way. The consumer is getting mindfucked, not the company.

      Women, as you say, do not have a mission statement and gender policy to exploit men for maximum gains. They are being controlled by their neurochemistry. Their will gives them the illusion of volition. Their will is like the intern a company allows to choose "which shade of purple shall we use for the brand name logo?". The intern thinks they made a difference. They still got used for free, and the product is still the same. The woman is also getting mindfucked, not just the man.

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Their will gives them the illusion of volition.

      I couldn't have put it better than this. Our ancestors, who didn't have to toe the Marxist-Leninist-Feminist line, realized the lack of real agency in female decision making, which established them as the protected class -- they needed a patriarchal system to rein in that lack of clear responsibility in their decision making. In the rare event there is an independent and self-directed woman in history she is unabashedly masculine in viewpoint and manner as though to imply that she is wired very differently from your usual female. She is frequently an apparent asexual or a rumored homosexual, further hammering home the point.

      Women realize this on the subconscious level and prefer to abdicate decision making to other parties, either male individuals or genderless consensus. But today's women are totally convinced on the conscious level that they are completely in control of their behavior. Nothing could be further from the truth.

        Doing the right thing shouldn't even be a test of friendship. Sounds like Barry was happy with his blue life but that shouldn't have OP second guessing (at any age) that doing the right thing was the right thing to do.

        [–][deleted] 87 points88 points  (17 children)

        I don't think you're right here.

        1. Your friend remains your friend. If he didn't want her bf to know, then he shouldn't have told her bf's friend. Apparently he didn't even care, so you're good on his front.

        2. You have a guy the truth. It gives him a chance to learn, even if it takes a while for it to sink in.

        3. You dished out some justice.

        Honesty didn't hurt you practically, and it was the right thing to do.

          This is a good point. It's a tough thing to do, but that's tough love for your boy. Regardless of gender, when you get in a relationship, you're making a commitment. Too many people don't want to get involved in the drama and that's partly why cheating goes unfounded. They deserve to know.

          On the other hand, I've handed out justice in the past and my buddy blamed me for ruining his relationship. It sucked to lose him, but I realized that he chose pussy over his boy and in effect, he wasn't the good friend there. Some guys are that blue.

          Unfortunately, when your friends let you in on a secret you didn't ask to be let in on, and that involves other people in your life, you're already involved.

          Barry is going to be mad at you for keeping it a secret from him if he finds out you knew and didn't tell him.

          Edit: I shouldn't say you were "incorrect", per say. There are plenty of reasons to keep your mouth shut. I'm just saying it's up in the air.

          [–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          How I handle this kind of dilemma is I look at who got theirs. In the above example I'd have told Barry as well since the other friend already got his, so IMO Barry should at least be told what's what so he isn't being lied to (by the woman). What he does with the info is up to him.

          [–]2comment 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          I'm in IT so I actually had one friend ask me to install a key logger on his wife's computer. No fucking way.

          While I wouldn't do that either, I would point the guy the right way. Or tell him to fucking google it.

          If you refuse to give some of yourself for your brothers why have them at all? All relationships are a trade of time or resources or whatever you fancy, yes? Then what are your friends getting out of you, and what are you getting out of them: a few laughs; a person to talk to; someone who's willing to lay down their life? Whatever you choose to give them, you'll get something of equal value back, or thereabouts.

          Imagine if you'd gotten closer to Barry, told him a little red pill knowledge, maybe shared your swallowing story with him, he could have taken even a little on board and worked on improving himself or looked at how he socialised with people. I guarantee you could have at least made him realise how much he gives to other people and how reluctant he is to take from them.

            Rich is one Dark Triad motherfucker. He told you, knowing you're going to tell Barry. Barry confronts Bonnie and they eventually break up, making hooking up with Bonnie less complicated for Rich.

            Agree and amplify type of response seems like it might be amusing. Like, "That makes sense. I've been hurt in the past too, and I really care about you, so let's take this slow: I won't reserve my time for you, buy you anything, or lie to make you feel better about yourself. We'll work up to that gradually so that things can work out naturally."

            Or something like that. I got the idea but not the expression of it...

            [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            Absolutely, if a woman has been "hurt" in the past by giving up sex too quickly, a man can be "hurt" by giving up time and resources too quickly. It makes perfect sense ... although I'm sure this logic could be hamstered away.

            [–]TRP VanguardArchwinger[S] 110 points111 points  (11 children)

            That's a great question. I think the answer is to avoid selling out.

            Initially, it doesn’t seem to make any sense at all. Why would a woman give less to somebody that she loves more? But when you think about the nature of most women, this really clicks.

            Women treat lives like Facebook. In Facebook, you want to accumulate friends, likes, and approval from as many sources as possible, but you only have so much time to spend online.

            If you apply this approach to real life, you have a situation where a woman gives as little as possible to the people she loves most, while going all out and giving everything she has for relative strangers. This makes no sense to a man. A man will do anything for his family and friends, but the rest of the world can go fuck itself as far as he’s concerned. Not so for women.

            Once a woman has your approval and love, she doesn’t have to make as much of an effort any more. She’s not trying to win your approval any longer, just maintain it. She can take all of the time and attention you were consuming and apply that to attracting new approval from other sources, since she already has yours. She loves you more than a complete stranger, which is precisely why she’s giving you less. She’s busy trying to win that stranger’s approval. And if the stranger is less of a chump than you are and withholds his validation, she’ll fuck him to get it. You sold yourself short for a kiss.

            Damn, that is gold. I guess the only question I have is how much validation do you give a woman before sex? I guess it is different with every girl, but you can't be to much of a ass or to much of a validater. Guess it is different with every woman. A fine line that one has to learn from experience I conclude.

            By changing your behaviors so you never put yourself in that situation. Once she's said the whole "nice guy" routine it's almost too late. You'll be fighting an uphill battle at least.

            If you do find yourself in that situation, just walk away. Do not keep being her beta time ho. You might not get the girl but you'll have learned a lesson and can walk away with your self respect.

            [–]2emptyform 6 points7 points  (1 child)

            Walk away and maybe change her mind by changing the stakes, or walk away and stop wasting your time. Either way, walk away.

            [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            In my experience walking away made her realize that I wasn't going to have it and within the month she sen't me a huge text in new years telling me how bad she felt that she wasn't giving me enough attention and treating me like crap and how she hoped we could make it work because she didn't want to lose me,etc.

            Again this is only one specific case but damn I'd be lying if I said playing her little games worked. You need to stop and let her know (by walking away) that those games are insulting and demeaning and that things need to change.

            [–]mojo_magnifico 0 points1 point  (1 child)

            Yeah then she tells all her friends you were just using her to get sex and you fuck up with an entire social circle of girls (I'm playing devil's advocate here for the sake of healthy discussion and anticirclejerk-ism).

            [–]md619 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Haha good. You think her friends are going to want to fuck you knowing you're her littke beta bitch? If anything her shit talk will help your chances. And even if it doesn't, oh well. Every girl is replaceable. That's what having an alpha abundance mentality means.

            [–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

            Damn true,

            The last girl I fell into this trap with was mid last year, normally I don't mind waiting until the 2nd date however she had dragged it out until the 5th date with "I want this to work" and "Ive been hurt in the past" comments.

            Like a gump I waited partially because we got along together pretty well, also because she was a successful doctor with a mega wealthy family and super-celebrity brother, ontop of us really clicking I was fine letting things not proceed past 2nd base for the 1st 3-4 dates.

            Got fed up after date #5 and stopped contacting, went on with my life and dated others.

            After 2 months I got back in touch met up and fucked her that night (no dinner, date or any of the previous BS) it was incredibly easy.

            [–]1rp-oldgame 95 points96 points  (1 child)

            From the age of like 17 to 20 (man, 20 years ago already!) I fell into that trap several times, and man did it suck.

            This post is really well written, and lays the sticky situation out and the two sides very nicely. There's another undercurrent that I'd like to add.

            A woman's insecurity... It may be that she's shooting you down not only because she can, but because you haven't tried hard enough, or took LMR too seriously.

            It just might be that the other guys she let fuck and chuck her powered right through that LMR and it made her feel wanted, desired, and turned on.

            If you're such a nice guy that she just says "No thanks, let's take it slow" and you're response is, "Okay baby, sure thing, I understand. This is special" you just fucked up royally.

            Now, you have her thinking that you have no animal passion, or that she doesn't turn you on enough for you to give it a better shot than that.

            Secondly, you just said it was "special". Fuck, now she's thinking she's got you by the balls, AND that she better not fuck it up.

            A better scenario is this one:

            Her: "No, we can't. I've been hurt in the past, I don't want to make the same mistakes"

            You: "You're right, we shouldn't be doing this, this is moving so fast it's just so crazy but I just can't help myself. You drive me fucking WILD!" (keep doing what you're doing)

            At that point if you get a hard NO, stop and freezeout.

            When she breaks, go in for the kill.

            If she doesn't, she was never going to anyway. Stop being her time ho.

            Wins all around!

            At that point if you get a hard NO, stop and freezeout.

            yep. thats exactly how you should use the hamster to your advantage. do not allow her to put you in the provider category, or she will continue to deny you sex.

            [–]FortunateBum 18 points19 points  (2 children)

            My primary advice when it comes to women: You're either fucking or you're not.

            If you're not fucking, then you're not fucking.

            The only question becomes, how long should I wait to fuck?

            My answer is, and I know you guys probably aren't going to like this, the same day you meet. If you didn't fuck the night you met consider her a "friend", an acquaintance, whatever. It's possible you might fuck someday in the future, but this whole dating nonsense is complete bullshit.

            So how many dates should you go on before you next her? I'd say one. Seems harsh, but truth be told, I have never had sex with a woman who I went out with more than once. Ever. And I'm almost 40. Usually I'm fucking her before any date. Maybe she was an acquaintance and we got to talking at a party or bar or whatever.

            Dating just doesn't work. By taking her on a "date", you're already putting yourself into a horrible (beta) position which you will probably never be able to get out of.

            Also, think about it. If she spends an entire night with you and you didn't fuck, how much do you think she wants to fuck you? She probably doesn't.

            [–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            Yup. Animal attraction isn't a matter for debate or negotiation. Once you're into each other I agree that you should be tearing each others clothes off as soon as the opportunity presents itself. If that's not occurring, then you're wasting your time, probably because she's damaged goods in some way, or she uses sex as a weapon or bargaining chip.

            [–]BetamaxFaggle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            29 here and probably less successful, but it holds true that most of the women I had sex with were DTF on day one. I think it might be over 2/3 of them on day one, about.

            Excellent post.

            Imagine a worker who has worked at some real crap companies and was abused and treated badly. Then he goes to work for a great company that treats him well. His coworkers aren't satisfied though, and convince him to go on strike. So he goes on strike, holding out for more, because he's been hurt in the past.

            The company then brings in the strikebreakers.

            I'm not necessarily criticizing organized labor, just using it to make an analogy. There are plenty of strikebreakers out there. In fact, there are whole countries full of strikebreakers. With their help, you can break that one-itis monopoly.

            “I’ve been hurt in the past,...

            This is also a common line for cult leaders and con artists. It immedidiately reframes it to a situation where YOU (not them) are being evaluated for trustworthiness. Suddenly, you have to prove yourself to them, instead of the cult leader proving his belief system to you.

            [–]Laughing_Jelly_Bean 14 points15 points  (9 children)

            I've pegged you for a chump. I don't think you have options with other women, and I don't think you're willing to walk away, so I'm going to frame this relationship on my terms.

            In my experience, the women are definitely worried that you'll walk away, but that doesn't change anything. Walking away still won't get you sex. They'll call your bluff.

            It's a relationship that can't work, but neither the guy or girl can see that. It's sad really, both can waste years and years of their lives on this type of thing.

            [–]FindMitch 38 points39 points  (4 children)

            That's the problem right there. You think leaving a woman is a bluff. You think this is a game of poker and you're trying to get women to fold and if they don't fold, you lose your pot. No it's not a bluff. You're literally prepared to leave and break contact with them at any point in the relationship. And that's the way it should be, you owe it yourself to seek out the best opportunities and positions that make you happy. Being with a woman who is telling you bullshit and not giving you sex is not a position you want to be in. You have the option to leave.

            And what happens to the girl at this point? The hamster loses its mind and she goes through this fear of loss complex and the whole dynamics of the relationship shifts and suddenly she is begging you not to leave. But honestly, you didn't do it for her. Ultimately everything discussed here in TRP works because you're doing this for YOU.

            You think leaving a woman is a bluff. You think this is a game of poker and you're trying to get women to fold and if they don't fold, you lose your pot. No it's not a bluff.

            I like the poker analogy. It really does work well. You're right that the equivalent mistake would be 'fake bluffing' with a lost hand, what you might call the 'one-itis' of hands. And it's quite as common at the poker table as it is in relationships. Very exploitable for the other person.

            Being with a woman who is telling you bullshit and not giving you sex is not a position you want to be in. You have the option to leave.

            Basically "always be willing to fold". It's EV 0. If you can't beat EV 0 with your other options, then fold the damn hand; there's always the next hand (most formal poker analysis assumes infinite length table games for simplicity; interestingly enough, there are some very long lived poker games which would approximately match these characteristics.

            Generally, playing just one hand, it's all a matter of luck. Playing enough hands, the central limit theorem and game theory would suggest that skill and bias built into the game begins to outweigh the effects of chance.

            tl;dr: If there's no value, fold.

            So true, man. One girl I was in an LTR with begged on her knees for me not to leave her on our last night together...then dumped me by text 2 hours later, which she must have been planning for weeks. Even if they are about to leave you, they will do almost anything to 'keep you' on their terms.

            In other words even if they don't really rate a guy women aren't going to turn away free affection, attention and validation. Perceived flattery will keep that attention coming. "I've been hurt before" is such an elegant yet deceitful way of damning a man with faint praise yet giving him that sense he's something special.

            [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            You can avoid this entire conversation simply by being aggressive and escalating quickly. That's what the assholes did, and it's not rocket science. It just takes a healthy amount of hedonism and not giving a fuck.

            It's really that easy, folks. Being sexually aggressive shows you have options or that you don't care about rejection. It's always worked wonders for me, even without any other routine or technique.

            How long exactly are we talking about here? A few weeks, or a few months? I'd imagine if they are saying "I love you", a noticeable period of time has passed. That is just weird.

            A lot of times in the beginning of a prospective LTR, a girl will be slow to have sex. This is an old fashioned tactic, often suggested by parents to their daughters, although its probably less and less common. Its is definitely viewed as a test, and the theory behind it is that if a guy is interested in just sex then he will leave if he has to wait. This type of tactic becomes less common the older the girl gets.

            Personally, I don't have too much of a problem with the aforementioned tactic. I think that it does actually work to some degree and its not really deceptive.

            However, if you are going on more than a few weeks (and you are at least in your 20's) and things haven't progressed... then clearly there is something seriously wrong there. You've passed the limit of social norms. Either she likes you, or she doesn't.

            There can be a lot of reasons for this, but none of them are good. She could be using you. She could have mixed feelings or weak attraction.

            She could be telling the truth and legitimately have mental hang ups and deep seeded problems, but this is really not very good either. Some of the worst relationships I've seen involved people who've been in emotionally scarring relationships in the past. It is nearly impossible to have a normal relationship if this is true.

            TLDR - there can be a different approach depending on whether she wants a LTR or just sex, but its typically for younger women and shouldn't be for excessive periods of time.

            This line works only if the girl hasn't put out for anybody in the past, but then that means she has some self respect, a thing of rarity these days.

            At any point during the breakup (which I think should be inevitable), would it be ok to try and justify leaving over this? I know that you shouldn't really give a shit what she thinks, but solely for the reason of not wanting her to turn other girls away from you, could you try and dampen the impact? What I mean is, when you say that it's over, and she says something along the lines of "Oh, so you're leaving me so I won't have sex with you? What a jerk." would it ever be suitable to say "It's not that we haven't had sex. It's that you don't WANT to have sex. You're holding sex over my head like some sort of reward for jumping through your hoops, when you clearly give it away to other guys for free. You clearly aren't attracted to me, and don't respect me, so I don't see this going any further." My instinct tells me that she won't give a shit though, and this kind of explanation will just bounce off her head.

            The 100% least successful route with any woman is to try to rationalize and logic your way into sex. If you have to explain yourself with 50 words like that, all that a woman is going to hear is:

            "I'm a whiny loser. I'm so insecure about my position that I have to prattle on and on trying to convince you of my viewpoint. You're more valuable than I am and it's critically important to me that you understand my point of view because I care so much what you think."

            It doesn't matter if the words you say are correct or incorrect. The only thing the woman will perceive is that you had to explain yourself, which means your position was weak and you're a supplicant who cares what she thinks and desires her approval.

            "You're leaving me because I won't have sex with you?"

            "I'm leaving you, period."

            "Being stingy with affection is the opposite of love."

            Yes this is the best I have heard this put. I've tried explaining to women the sentiment your post portrays but have come up short. I now have new verbal ammo for when I come across someone with this mind set.

            Also I really do plan to use your quote.... A lot. Hope you don't mind.

            It’s a difficult truth to admit and to accept, not just for us, but for women, too. I think on some level, they want to love that nice guy who’s going out of his way for them, but they just don’t. They can’t. But they tell themselves that they do, and that they’re just taking it slow to avoid getting hurt like they have in the past. Because they love him more. And if things don’t work out, he’s still a great guy – the chemistry just wasn’t there. And if they slip up and screw some hot guy from work, it was a mistake. They don’t love that guy. They love the nice guy, don’t they? They were just drunk.

            This piece is absolute gold. Redpill lesson #01.

            She wants emotional connection (love) with alpha.

            She notices that after sex, alphas lose interest in her and she doesn't know why.

            She's not saying to herself - "I'm gonna hook this beta loser I'm not attracted to up, I'm gonna make him fall in love with me and I'm gonna deny the shit out of him just to hurt him as much as possible.", no.She says "I'm gonna make an experiment - I will do everything as usual, except I wont have sex. Wonder how it goes.". Then she tries to make it happen. But what happens is it makes an alpha filter, where only beta unattractive guys make it through.

            She doesn't even understand that there are alpha or beta guys, just on intuitive level feels it. She wants to hook alpha up for her "experiment", but she just lacks the knowledge required to figure this out and why it doesn't work.

            So after her experiment proves to her, if she's smart enough to realize it at all, that it failed, she either cuts the guy who made it through her filter out or only then decides to keep him as a friend. The beta then will call her names, "bitch", etc., and creates posts like the OP blaming her for being evil. While all she wanted was to make emotional connection with alpha, but it just didn't work.

            It's either neither girl, nor guy fault, or both fault, since it happens because they both don't know better.

            That's why TRP teaches to avoid such traps - if the girl puts too much effort to deny sex, get out.

            [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            So much terrible memories. When a girl Said this exact thing to me I was like "well I'm not that type of guy. I'm nice and il treat you like the beta chump I am". Wow. Thanks trp. Literally dont know how I would have gotten out of my bubble.

              I've said this before: sucking up to women, by betas, is ultimately caused by women.

              Betas suck up because they have few options.

              They have few options because alphas are willing to sleep with tons of women.

              Alphas get to sleep with so many women because women are selective, and prefer men whom other women have "approved".

              For high value males to exist, low value ones must as well.

              Of course, that's not to say that low value males couldn't collectively shun women; which I suspect is starting to happen/has happened.

              Why do you care if she allegedly loved you more than any man they’d ever had previously if she doesn't do what you want? 1) it's either a test or she's fucked in the head 2) proceed accordingly: agree and amplify or next.

              Not to brag, but all the "rules" and "3 dates" stuff aside, not putting out is never even an issue - how the fuck would it happen in a real adult world? Why would you keep dating her?

              I think women genuinely are nervous about sleeping with a high quality guy. A random bartender has nothing to offer her long term, a yale educated climate researcher looks good as a husband so she'll try to withhold sex to gain his investment.

              Sometimes when a girl pulls this she's just trying to scratch off her lottery number to see if she's won. Guys will fuck more girls than commit to so fucking tells them nothing.

              I have found based on my own experiences and that of my friends, that the loner she keeps from giving the dog the bone the more emotionally attached the male becomes.

              Bingo. It's an intellectual assessment, and not an emotional one. Even if her intellectual assessment leads her to an actual relationship (which includes sex), she'll move on quickly because she is an emotional creature by nature. Well done articulating that dynamic.

              If a woman mentions that's she's been with assholes in the past it means that you have to step up your asshole act if you wanna to get her in the sack.

              [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Decoding woman language: "hurt" or "heartbroken" means "fucked but not loved". Up to 14 years old or so "heartbroken" can mean just a date and a kiss with a very handsome guy who then leaves them. But it is ridiculous to believe that at 20 years old it is so.

              Again this is one thing where movies spread false views. Movies say a 20 years old adult woman can fall in love in a few nonsexual dates and then feel totally hurt when the guy says let's just be friends. In reality it basically never happens - any guy worth falling in love with usually escalates hard, plants a flag and maybe hands out the friendzone card afterwards. At that point comes the hurt, the heartbreak "I did put out, gave it up, so why I am not rewarded with love and commitment?"

              This is what it really means.

              Generally fuck everything about learning relationships stuff from movies.

              One time I was trying to fuck this plate for like a week straight and one time we were just chilling, watching a movie and she rolls over and says. "I like you more than most men." I smirked and said nothing, maintaining my frame. She then got a big grin and said "LEts go to the MALL tomorrow!" I just laughed and walked out the door. Never talked to her again. Got a few phone calls from her, quickly changed my number. If she's not gonna let me in her pussy I'm not letting her in my wallet. Pretty hilarious, I punched a high school kid in the knee.

              Was not the first time she tried to get me to open my wallet. One time we were hanging out at a grocery store and there were a bunch of kittens for sale outside. She kept commenting on how cheap and cute they were. Haha fuck that. I ain't no ho-ho. Just to shut her up I walked up to the booth where they were selling kittens and looked the lady selling them in the eye and said "I'm not going to buy a kitten I'm just trying to shut up this chick I'm with." I then walked back and told her they all looked sick.

              Is this a very common issue because this has been every relationship I've had so far. Getting a bit old being called the good/nice guy just to be abandoned for the "just in it for sex" guys.

              Have said these exact words before. So you are going to judge my relationship with you on something that happened in the past. Which I have absolutely nothing to do with. But I get punished. Every single time they realize what kind of a situation they have put me in. Destroys that barrier right away.

              My god I wish I'd read this when I was young.


              Copypasta for posterity:

              I used to meet a lot of women who allegedly loved me more than any man they’d ever had previously, but went to great lengths to never, ever have sex with me. They weren’t virgins; many had quite the history with men. But I still never got anywhere. Their reasoning was grounded in woman-logic: "I've been hurt by a lot of assholes in the past, and I really care about you, so I want to do this right" or some variation of that.

              If you’re a loser, upon hearing that, you’ll think to yourself, “Oh, joy! I’m totally not an asshole, and she notices that and is rewarding me with a real [non-sexual] relationship instead of a shallow one that’s going to fail! I’m so lucky! I’ll wait forever for such a wonderful person! I should find something nice to do for her right now to let her know how grateful I am!”

              Here's how that woman-logic sounds to a real guy: "Other men worse than you have gotten farther with me, in less time, with less of an emotional and financial investment. But because I care more about you, I am making you jump through hoops and making you spend a greater amount of time and resources to get less far with me. Because I care more about you. What? Why are you looking at me like that? This makes perfect sense. Yes, giving less to people I care about more makes sense."

              Here's what the girl really means: "I've pegged you for a chump. I don't think you have options with other women, and I don't think you're willing to walk away, so I'm going to frame this relationship on my terms. We fuck when I want to, and that's going to be after I've made you jump through a bunch of hoops to prove you're my little compliant bitch who's going to give me all the time, resources, and validation I want, at will. If you were a real man, you’d have fucked me already, but I’ve cast you for the role of bitch. I don’t care about you. I care about me. I don’t even like you. Sex is reserved for real men. You’re not a real man. You’re my bitch.”

              Here’s the kicker: Most women don’t know that they really mean this. They just know that the validation feels good, and that a guy who keeps validating them without sex makes them feel powerful, happy, and better about themselves. When any woman hears the line of girl logic, “I’ve been hurt in the past,” it makes perfect sense to them – she’s screwed up by giving it up too easily before and wants to stop screwing up. By stop screwing up, they mean that she needs to do a better job of withholding sex to bait men into doing shit for her to earn it. They don’t know they mean that, but that’s what they mean.

              Only in the eyes of a woman does it make sense to give less to a man that you love more. But that’s the rationalization kicking in. If a woman is giving you less, and making you do more for it, that’s the exact opposite of loving you more. Being stingy with affection is the opposite of love. Requiring an exchange of favors rather than just giving of yourself is the opposite of love.

              It’s a difficult truth to admit and to accept, not just for us, but for women, too. I think on some level, they want to love that nice guy who’s going out of his way for them, but they just don’t. They can’t. But they tell themselves that they do, and that they’re just taking it slow to avoid getting hurt like they have in the past. Because they love him more. And if things don’t work out, he’s still a great guy – the chemistry just wasn’t there. And if they slip up and screw some hot guy from work, it was a mistake. They don’t love that guy. They love the nice guy, don’t they? They were just drunk.

              “I’ve been hurt in the past and want this to be different,” is nothing more than an insidious shit test. By complementing you, telling you that you’re different from every other guy, that you’re not an asshole or a douche, and that she loves you more than every previous man, you’re off-guard when in combination with all of that praise, she denies you sex. Because she loves you more.

              What if you're seeing a girl, she's giving you great sex, she even offers to pay for herself when you get food and even buy little things for you here and there. She's submissive to you, and you want to pursue a LTR with her, but she is hesitant to jump on board? She's also claims she was, "hurt in the past" and wants to take things slow, but she is still open to giving you sex and casually dating. What are your thoughts on that situation?

              [–]TRP VanguardArchwinger[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

              If a woman wants to downgrade herself to plate status for you, that's a good thing.

              It's also a shit test to see if you'll get all clingy and pushy about monogamy and commitment. By pursuing a LTR, you're admitting to limited options and making yourself awfully unattractive to her, revealing that you're actually a needy loser.

              "Wanna LTR with me?"

              "No. Let's go slow. I've been hurt in the past."

              "Oh shit! I was just kidding around. Didn't mean to lead you on. Lulu will go batshit on me if I have to stop fucking her silly. She's been trying to lock me down for months."
