I'm no O.G. or mod here but I have been answering as many questions in this sub as I've had time for, and I've noticed a point of confusion at least a dozen or more times that seems worth explicitly clarifying.
A "plate" in TRP slang is a woman who:
- You are fucking
- You're not exclusive with
Thus, it follows that:
If you're talking about a female that you are not fucking regularly you're not talking about a plate.
If you're talking about a woman that you have never had sex with you're not talking about a plate.
If you're talking about a girl that used to be your girlfriend and you broke up and you're not fucking her regularly she's not a plate.
If you are fucking a girl regularly but you call her a girlfriend and don't fuck other girls she's not a plate.
If you go on dates with a woman and haven't fucked her yet she's not a plate.
And so on. So, if you're thinking of posting a question here that sounds like "so there's this plate in my math class and she totally digs me and I was at the party and she fucked some other guy and I don't know what to do" or whatever, please revisit the above points. She might be a "potential plate" which is also known as any girl you would like to fuck, but a plate she is not.
If your dick hasn't been inside her, she's not a plate. There aren't really exceptions to this rule.
