Red Pill ExampleArctic Monkeys lead singer's ex highschool girlfriend 'regrets' splitting up with him and going for an older guy. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

TL;DR: Chick splits up with guy for a better bloke, regrets it when she sees his success.

Article in question: https://archive.is/p9cOf

Here is the song that he wrote about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BATj0SFx_8

Body: This is gold, a chick that Alex Turner used to date in high school left him for an older guy, without looking back at the time. Years later when Alex and his band have received a few brit awards and is regarded as being a pretty all round sexy guy, she regrets it, and says she would like to rekindle what they used to have. She was an asshole to him back then but after seeing his fame and success she realizes the mistake she made.

We dated when we were in the fourth year at Stocksbridge High School in Sheffield. He was a lovely lad and I still have feelings for him now. But this older boy charmed me away. I was impressed by stupid things, his age and the car. Now I wish I’d stayed with Alex.

Here we see a girl branch swinging to a better guy, without any initial regret. This goes to show that women will not give a damn about your feelings if what they do provides personal benefit.

But after four months of inncocent fun Lauren fell for the big boy with the Peugeot 405, who took her out for drives when she should have been in class.

After the time she spent with her boyfriend something more fun and more exciting than him, and moved on to another guy.

Lauren told us: “It’s quite embarrassing now but that was me. It’s really sad and shallow but I was impressed and thought the guy was cool. My mates were all envious.

Bitch did it for that SMV rise, made her girlfriends envious.

“It’s mad seeing your school boyfriend become a worldwide star. I just wish I’d treated him better.”

And here we see her regret, she wants that famous rockstar guy that she used to have but didn't respect. Now his SMV is sky high though, she regrets it. Any money says that if he weren't a rock star she wouldn't even have ever given him a second thought.

Lessons Learned:

  1. Living a successful life is the best revenge.
  2. Women will not give a damn about you should they find something better than you.
  3. They will only regret fucking you over if it didn't benefit them and they lost out on something, however if their move was beneficial, then fuck you no cares given.

EDIT: Flaired as Red Pill Example, but I'm not entirely sure if that's what this is.

He was a skater boy. She said, "See ya later, boy." He wasn't good enough for her. Now he's a superstar Slammin' on his guitar Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

Wow, Avril Lavigne got it?

[–]herpes_delivery_man 94 points94 points [recovered]

that song was surprisingly red pill

[–]systemshock869 31 points31 points [recovered]

Or just universal truth. Everyone knows most of this shit. It's all over media, literature, art... People just wont admit it if it causes cognitive dissonance either pertaining to themselves or someone they have on a pedestal. Sneak some truth in incognito-like and most conscious humans will have no objection.

[–]JSFR_Radio 13 points14 points  (12 children)

People just wont admit it

People most certainly admit that men and women both would regret breaking up with any guy/girl that ends up becoming rich and famous. It legit has nothing to do with the red pill.

[–]Zachar1a 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Meh, I don't think a guy would care if a girl went on to be rich and famous after he broke up with her. If she was annoying enough, or enough of a cold fish, that he broke up with her, he wouldn't want her back just because she became famous.

[–]Dravous 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I would agree with this. most guys would take in a homeless girl if she was hot enough(in fact such a scenario plays on men's desire to be the protector/provider). a girl then being rich and famous doesn't really do much for men, and if she wasn't good enough before that happened it isn't going to be an improvement.

[–]LyricBaritone 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Amend that to "most guys would take in a homeless girl if she was hot enough AND sucked his dick like it would cure cancer"

[–]through_a_ways 4 points5 points  (5 children)

It legit has nothing to do with the red pill.

It has everything to do with the red pill, because women value fame a lot more than men do.

[–]JSFR_Radio -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

If my high school sweetheart became much better looking and famous, I would be just as salty as she is. Pretty sure most guys would feel the same way.

[–]yuube 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Umm, no? I could give 2 fucks about my ex being famous. I don't understand how you could think like that, That is, unless you aren't man enough to be able to go out with other famous good looking women.

If you could go out with other famous good looking women why would you care what your ex did? That sounds like a lot of poor confidence and jealousy straight up. Thats not part of being a man. That shit shouldn't matter 2 fucks to you.

It was mostly written by a team of middle aged song writers who, ironically enough, called themselves The Matrix.

[–]through_a_ways 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Eh, I'd say it was, but unintentionally.

I don't think Avril is any different from any other girl. I see the song having two potential motives:

1) Trying to one-up a girl whose status seeking failed her in the past. The girl viewed the classical "fancy preppy" sphere as the world in which to seek status, while Avril and the skater boy were entrenched in punk subculture. Avril dates skater boy, whose "raw" status is now so high that it trumps that of the "preppy" sphere. Avril wants to one-up this girl whom she's heard stories about.

2) Avril gets rejected by a preppy guy, whom she saw as high status, in her younger years. She becomes a pop punk superstar, and writes this song as "revenge" against him, to display that she has much more status than him now. In reality he doesn't care all that much because status doesn't mean much to men. Avril is projecting her own modes of attraction onto men.

[–]reigorius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Status does has an influence. Same girl, trailer trash origine, or middle to upper class girl?

[–]foldpak111 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Well this was pre-third wave feminism

[–]Jaz_the_Nagai 29 points30 points  (5 children)

everything changed when the third wave attacked.

[–]foldpak111 14 points15 points  (4 children)

The only thing that changed is removal of the first amendment. People think the same shit but aren't as likely to call people out because now their paychecks depend on it.

This reminds me of Star Wars. We've been in 'Revenge of the Sith' for a while now and for a while more. The Empire (Feminism) rules everything (even the new Star Wars). TRP is 'A New Hope.' Now remember what Ghandi said, "First they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." The masses laugh at us now, but due to how many people are waking up to the truth (proof is in the growth of this sub), they now fight. So all the backlash is "The Empire Strikes Back" and in Milo's AMA, he said that men will have a voice again and it's going to happen. That will be "The Return of the Jedi."

[–]coolguy1793B 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Can't remember the band(pretty shitty I'm sure) but their lyric from a song had some relevance: "Girls don't like boys, they like cars and money..."

[–]NaughtyFred 4 points5 points  (6 children)

It's this song

Pretty insightful lyrics when viewed through an rp lens

[–]Rooi_Aap 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The music video also contains some symbolism. Old people acting like teenagers/young adults tells you that what they are saying is universal. A 40+ woman will still like "cars and money"

[–]martypete 0 points0 points [recovered]

fuck, early 2000's punk was just an era we will never get back =[

[–]1DRMMR76 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I just want the era of actual bands to return. Yes they are still out there, but actual bands with a singer, guitarist, drummer, and bassist just aren't at the top anymore and haven't been for some time. This era of pretty boy faux rappers with autotune and female pop stars needs to end, and soon.

[–]redpillstoner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea I agree and i personally love rap I just love guitar rocking even more

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 340 points341 points  (31 children)

“It’s mad seeing your school boyfriend become a worldwide star. I just wish I’d treated him better.”

Women don't love you, they love your value. This chick hasn't spoken a word to him in a decade, yet here she is harbouring feelings for him. If the band were to break up and Alex were to go broke again you can bet that she'd disappear in heartbeat.

Be wary of a woman's honeyed words. They never, ever mean anything more than what she's feeling in that moment.

[–]killm3throwaway 93 points94 points  (18 children)

I honestly doubt that he'll speak to her again, there's an interview from a while ago where he says that she's in the past, just a memory and nothing more.

He's been with victoria's secret models, he's living the good life of cigarettes, cocaine and rock 'n' roll. He probably never thinks about her.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 110 points111 points  (4 children)

Naturally he doesn't. Nothing kills oneitis faster than true abundance.

The noteworthy aspect is that she developed the female equivalent of oneitis: inescapable attraction to a man's value. Had he become Alex Turner the successful accountant her thoughts today would have been "Alex who?"

[–]momomotorboat 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Can this be an example of an Alpha Widow? Perhaps a delayed one? Or is the idea predicated on her being dropped by an Alpha while he holds that status?

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Not quite an alpha widow, that refers to a woman whose pair-bonding mechanism is ruined by having her status artificially inflated in her head by past successes. She was never with Alex Turner the frontman, she was with Alex Turner the regular schmo.

She just regrets her past decision making.

[–]2awalt_cupcake 25 points26 points  (1 child)

She invested in Compaq stocks when she realizes she should have been investing in Apple stocks. She's just realizing she could have hit the lotto. She'll probably be bitter but...

It’s mad seeing your school boyfriend become a worldwide star.

She doesn't say ex-boyfriend. She'll reap some social benefits of having had his dick in her for a little bit. Her female friends will call her up with "That's crazy!"s and "Could you imagine?!s. She'll invite her girls over for some wine and get drunk and tell them about how it was. She'll love the bitter-sweet attention.

[–]momomotorboat 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Nice catch. As if she still has some claim to him. No doubt her cat clan had a field day with this.

Fluorescent Adolescent is actually about a woman who has hit the wall.

The song about the girl in OP is Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts

[–]killm3throwaway 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's about how she misses the nights spent with players, and that marital life is boring for an attractive woman. It's her reminiscing on her glorious cock carousel days.

[–]killm3throwaway 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Such a fucking bright guy, early 20s - basically still a kid and cranking out masterpieces.

[–]ECoast_Man 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've been a fan of these guys for years, so I'm biased - loved this song.

However, to make a serious point which I've made before - the fact of the matter is, many TRP truths, if not all of them, we are all innately aware of them. Women are aware of the wall, just as much as men are aware that the best men get all the women.

Songs like this, and others, demonstrate that you don't need to be a deep philosopher to be aware of the sexual dynamics at play. Understanding and articulating them, is a different story.

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

AHH! this song's the shit I love this one

[–]Beam_Me_Up2016 3 points3 points [recovered]

I honestly doubt that he'll speak to her again

Didn't Dave Grohl talk about such a chick from his past in a recent interview?

[–]1theoctopuss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I would wager that just about every guy has a girl like this, minus the 40 year old incel virgins.

[–]Dsdcimyc 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Too bad he's too busy being one of the best songwriters of his generation and banging models

[–]GC0W30 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Do we ever actually love altruistically either?

I am not sure I ever have.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Male love is more irrational than altruistic. Men will often tolerate the worst from women before cutting her out of his life. Women can afford to lose a significant amount of SMV and not be abandoned. Part of the reason why divorces are initiated by women 70% of the time.

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

I followed that line of thinking down the rabbit hole and came to the realization that we do nothing altruistically because everything we do is motivated by chemical highs.

[–]2awalt_cupcake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, males can. Men can be the true romantics.

= I have feelings for his social success that I did not at the time

But this older boy charmed me away

= he was older! I was young and naive! It's not my fault! It was this other guy's fault for being charming! How could a young girl such as myself resist a car ?

I just wish I’d treated him better.

= I wish I'd ended up with a pop star. No girl ever apologises unless she wants something.

Hilarious post, thanks for writing it up. Yes, it's a TRP example.

[–]LordXerces 18 points19 points  (1 child)

But this older boy charmed me away

Yep. Pay close attention to the phrasing. It was never something she did, it was something done to her. She was the victim of being charmed. Such a cruel world.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedPillDad 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Her story was brag-regret and virtue signalling. Same shit as GLO'S corpse eater, she was working the spotlight for social profit.

[–]through_a_ways 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty much.

"I regret not dating this guy because he's successful now. However, I did have the opportunity to date him. Let me broadcast that to the world to up my status"

[–]through_a_ways 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Women are attracted to status, men are attracted to looks.

Male status changes within seconds, female looks stay constant for about a decade (and then start uniformly declining across the board, though some decline faster than others).

Men can never regret not going out with an ugly chick, because ugly girls can't become prettier. Ordinary men, however, can become successful.

[–]first_time_using_net 61 points61 points [recovered]

But this older boy charmed me away. I was impressed by stupid things, his age and the car. Now I wish I’d stayed with Alex.

It's amazing how women never potray themselves as the doers of an action. It wasn't her decision, he charmed her. I keep seeing women talk that way, seemingly ridding themselves of any responsibility for their choices and actions.

It does shine soem light on why it's mostly women who tend to believe in fate, astrology, and other divine forces.

[–]2rp_valiant 12 points13 points  (0 children)

agency comes with accountability - the more agency you can eschew, the less people will hold you accountable. "Oh I left to go fuck that other guy because a psychic told me my boyfriend would cheat on me", just convenient excuses for poor behaviour.

[–]LordXerces 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It's nothing more than a product of biological hard-wiring. It's not malice, it's not stupidity - it's nature. Take note of the individuals who seem get swallowed into every new "spiritual" trend, whether it be The Secret, astrology, tarot cards or palmistry. Would you characterize those people as lead by the brain or lead by the heart? Does rationality usually dictate their actions or do emotions?

Men are thinking creatures with the ability to feel. Women are feeling creatures with the ability to think. As difficult as it might be, try to imagine your perception of reality being overwhelmingly dictated by impulse and emotion. Magic and mysticism, fate and destiny all become so much more tangible and attractive. It's easier to tell a lie if you believe in it yourself.

[–]akrebsie 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That is the trouble for me I can't even empathise with it, perhaps because I am so far in the opposite direction.

[–]LordXerces 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's easier to feel frustrated or angry towards the things we don't understand rather than the things we do. We all have different interpretations of what The Red Pill actually is, as it's an evolving philosophy, but in my eyes, part of reaching the stage of harmony and acceptance is understanding, and part of understanding a person is the ability to empathize with them.

The inability to empathize with and understand women is funnily enough what creates nice guys and sexual failures, much like it can create new Redpillers who remain stuck in a phase of constant anger and resentment.

[–]GFandango 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't have the link right now but I remember reading somewhere about a female CEO firing an employee and later expecting him to do some work as a "volunteer" and being surprised when he didn't do it ... something along those lines ... and in that article she says something like "I had to let go of an employee" and a few lines later she says "It wasn't even my decision".

[–]through_a_ways 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this is just a universally child-like behavior which persists in women because they are fundamentally more child-like.

I remember many times in my childhood when I blamed others for problems that could have been avoided if I'd made my own independent decisions.

For example, me and another two kids once got detention in 2nd grade. Teacher told us to miss recess and stay at Mrs. X's class instead. One kid says that we were supposed to stay at Mrs. Y's class, and the other kid agrees with him. I know it's wrong, but I went with them anyway. When our teacher found out we stayed at the wrong classroom, we got into more trouble.

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorVasiliyZaitzev 5 points6 points  (0 children)

First A/M song I thought of when I read the above. It's funny that this chick is now broadcasting her "regret" in what is a transparent hope that the guy reads it and rings her up, as well as a bit of attention-whoring..."hey! Everyone! The singer from this band used to want to bang me!" Lucky for him she's history.

[–]Mithra9009 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I still have feelings for him now

I love this part. I love the implication that she's always had feelings for him when in reality, her feelings for him are merely a result of his success and if called out on it, well technically, she is telling the truth. If women can lie like this on instinct, I imagine they make wonderful lawyers.

Overall, I think it's possible that this is just an attention grab. I remember some years back, Wiz Khalifa's ex-wife or whatever was on some kind of radio talk show. She was talked about here on TRP as an example of what happens when women hit the wall (this woman had hit it). There was one comment that stuck out to me. It highlighted how the only reason why anyone gives a damn about her existence is because she's the ex-lover of this famous guy. Even after the break-up, she's still parasitically leeching off of his accomplishments however this won't last long and it was predicted that she'd eventually sink into obscurity. I think she was some kind of model?

Nonetheless, she used him back then and she's using him now. If anything, with her attempt to leech off of him, she really reinforces the idea that it's men that are the prize to be pursued and obtained, not women.

[–]MrChillBroBaggins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Except lawyers have to actually follow procedure. But yeah I see your point. She's completely oblivious.

[–]bunnylajoya8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Women are only fabulous liars when they need to "protect" themselves, I doubt most of them possess the cold intellect it takes to build a case in court.

You make a great point and I know you were just using hyperbole in that instance so I'm not correcting you.

Also I think the woman you're referring to is Amber Rose, and her entire career is based on her ex flings/boyfriends, another of which was Kanye West. I think Gold Digger is based on her. She also spearheaded an event called "Slutwalk" which I think is just another feel-good feminist circlejerk. "Partner count doesn't matter! Stop slut-shaming!" Lol...

Yes, you were a shit to him so you earned the consequences to your actions and now you need to live with them. Men don't forget. Real men move on and ignore you.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRunawayGrain 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This strikes a nerve with me, because it's the pattern my crazy ex followed. I call it retroactively alpha widowing a girl. The thing is when it happens and she comes back around begging, it's just kind of disgusting.

Also, she mentioned dumping the older guy after two years. If they were fourteen at the time she dumped him, that puts it around 2000. Two years later when she dumped the older guy would be 2002, when he started getting noticed in smaller bands.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I haven't seen anyone else comment about this, but if he had stayed with her, he may never have become famous. Heartbreak and being shit on is one hell of a motivator for success... not to mention that when you're young and pursuing big things being tied down to a gf is dead weight.

He could have knocked her up and ended up stuck raising a small family as a struggling musician. shudders

Think of all the amazing shit Eminem came up with while pissed off at his ex, Kim.

If he had become a garbage man she would have felt justified in treating him like shit and dumping him. Men are lottery tickets for women. The ones that are worthless get crumpled up and tossed on the ground. She crumpled up and tossed out a winning lottery ticket--of course she regrets it.

[–]J_AsapGem 6 points7 points  (1 child)

We dated when we were in the fourth year at Stocksbridge High School in Sheffield. He was a lovely lad and I still have feelings for him now. But this older boy charmed me away. I was impressed by stupid things, his age and the car. Now I wish I’d stayed with Alex.

LMFAO! THIS SHIT MADE MY DAY HAHA, DID YOU GUYS CATCH THIS FUCKING LOGIC LMAO " i still have feelings for him now " "But this older boy charmed me away.

Robbie Williams wore a t-shirt at his concert once that summed it all up for many young guys at the time. It said, 'Fancy me now?'

regrets it when she sees his success.

Yep. She's not in it for the guy (which is what the guy hopes), but what the guy can bring for her.

And she is totally fine with her attitude of "I'm getting what I want for me, so I don't care."

These aren't "relationships" from the woman's point of view and how she operates. They are business arrangements without conscience because the woman wants a profit.

Fucking love every album they have ever produced, people say they've changed too much... I disagree, they've changed every album since their first, and will continue to do so. It's their unpredictability that makes them so good.

[–]Dsdcimyc 1 point2 points  (2 children)

same here, they're awesome. Still think AM is their weakest album though, goes to show how great they are. can't wait for The Last Shadow Puppets 2 next year

[–]killm3throwaway 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe that AM is a stepping stone for them, showing their fans that they aren't just kids any more, that they've matured as a band and are going to be producing a different kind of music.

Yeah it wasn't the greatest on the whole but there were some great songs in there.

[–]FredWeedMax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weird i feel like AM is kinda too mainstream for my liking but Suck it and See felt even worse compared to their older release at the time, lifeless commercial stuff when their first 3 were masterpieces

[–]Pantomeme 9 points9 points [recovered]

This isn't about regret or still having feelings for him, it's fem-bragging, letting other women know of her success in terms of man-patching (like a nicotine patch, connecting themselves to high status men). Any chick can be a groupie but to date (and dump) one? Status points. She's trying to move herself up the pyramid that women use amongst themselves.

This should be top comment. Everyone heres thinking with their dicks "hah she wants him back" nah obviously she knows she isn't getting him back, she's just bragging.

She doesn't say ex-boyfriend as if she's trying to reap the current benefits of a previous title.

[–]1Sir_Distic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

“It’s mad seeing your school boyfriend become a worldwide star. I just wish I’d treated him better.”

I actually laughed out loud at that hamstering.

"I..I now regret tossing him aside. Now that he's handsome, rich, famous, envied by many way hotter women than me. "

[–]T0000009 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I now regret tossing him aside

Only because I was too busy blowing jerboi's in the parking lot to notice how much my branch swing would actually cost later.

[–]PlanB_pedofile 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The rare revenge... remember guys, when women branch swing, they win. In normal circumstances this dude would have gone on with his life and the woman will be happily settled with her older man.

She didn't feel jaded until he became a rock star! See! That's the milestone it takes!

So those of you with fantasies over making your ex feel jaded, better become a millionaire or a rock star or both.

Till then keep lifting, have hobbies, and and enjoy yourselves.

[–]TheRentIsTooDamnHi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This bitch is too funny thinking her shit doesn't stink after all these years and models he's fucking now. I'm actually a huge fan of their music and they have a song 'Bigger Boys And Stolen Sweethearts" about this exact chick. I can't say their music is as good as it used to be but Alex has definitely gone from a beta kid to an alpha male. Keep fucking models Alex.

“I can’t believe the mess I made of it, not because he’s famous, but because he’s a nice, genuine lad.” 

Hahahahahaha, right. As they say across the pond: pull the other one, it's got bells on.

Even though there's pain in my chest, I still wish you the best.

[–]FieldsofBlue 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Isn't this an embarrassing thing for her to admit? I mean, this woman is basically admitting that she's attracted to his fame and money. Of course she feels regret, but you don't outright admit it and broadcast to the whole world how shallow you are. I guess this one is truly shameless.

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

What a shitty car to be impressed by lol.

[–]jadedintheusa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love seeing women disappointed like this and haunted by their past.

[–]HelloImRIGHT 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Jesus christ this shit is fucking ridiculous. It's so crazy how many dumbfucks will read this and not understand the reality of it.

It's mindblowing to me that a girl can even say things like this and not realize how ridiculous it sounds. just goes to show awalt

[–]boomerbux 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It's unbelievable, and typical. The lies she tells are mind boggling: They slept together one night 'but just kissing and cuddling' and she wants him now, 'not because he's famous but because he's a nice guy'.

It really is painful to think women are this bad and dishonest, but no one is calling her on it (except a few TRP guys haha)

[–]LetsGoAllTheWhey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Not because he's famous." Of course not. She doesn't dream about the life she could have had with him. She's just sorry because he's such a nice guy. The sad part of that is she probably believes what she's saying.

[–]JSFR_Radio 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Of course she does, pretty much any girl would regret it if their boyfriend becomes extremely famous and rich. I would certainly regret breaking up with my high school girlfriend if she became a rich actress. Tha fuck kind of shit are people upvoting now?

[–]santander26 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am going to become this. I am going to be so succesful, all those bitches will be in regret.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (24 children)

This could be said about any 'ex' of someone who became famous.

Guy or girl it makes no difference; I bet the dude who broke up Taylor Swift regrets it too.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 24 points25 points  (16 children)


Fame does not make a woman more attractive to a man, except to the extent that her make-up team, photographer, and digital editing crew help her with the job. Guys don't give a shit about fame, because we're not sexually attracted to status.

Alternatively, if your girlfriend suddenly achieved stardom, you'd still think of her as the same girl you've always known, until the fame started getting to her head. That's when you would realize that her fame had shifted her cock opportunities upwards, and that she was in the process of replacing you.

[–]NaughtyFred 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So true.

Toward the end of my bp days I had said to a few girls that the difference between men and women is that a man would date a homeless girl if he found her sexy...a woman would never date a homeless guy.

[–]foldpak111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Taylor Swift would break up with him due to the net worth differences. Hypergamy would have taken over.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (13 children)

I was thinking money & access to wherever in the world.

EDIT - Since /u/RojoEscarlata got a fat chub about my point, I wasn't saying their reasoning was the same. I was stating that regret would be felt by both sexes.

[–]RojoEscarlata -1 points0 points  (12 children)

That's interest not attraction.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Who was talking about attraction? Or interest for that matter?

I was making the point that anyone who was fucking someone that became famous (usually coincides with rich) and decided to break it off for someone else would regret not sticking around.

It doesn't have to be some deep fucking regret, just a regret. If I was fucking Jessica Biel and broke it off for whomever because whomever had huge tits at the time, I'd now regret not sticking with JB.

[–]RojoEscarlata -3 points-2 points  (10 children)

Yet you said:

I was thinking money & access to wherever in the world.

How is that not interest?

My point and HsP point is that attraction works VERY different for men and women, men want "beauty" women want "value" as simple as that.

Because you becoming a famous Rock Star will make you more attractive to women, no matter how "unattractive" you may be, however money and fame wont EVER make an ugly woman more attractive to males, the only thing men would be attracted is for self INTEREST.

which yourself just demonstrated with your example

PS: don't act like a little bitch when you are corrected.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (9 children)

PS: don't act like a little bitch when you are corrected.

Was I corrected? I didn't notice because your response still didn't touch on the point I made which is the person would feel regret.

[–]RojoEscarlata -3 points-2 points  (8 children)

This could be said about any 'ex' of someone who became famous.

Guy or girl it makes no difference; I bet the dude who broke up Taylor Swift regrets it too.

You are stating that the cause of regret is the same when a man it a woman miss out on that famous crush.

You've been explained why that's is not the case, yet you still don't see.

How can you be so obtuse?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

You are stating that the cause of regret is the same when a man it a woman miss out on that famous crush.

I never said why they felt regret, you made that assumption on your own. I just said they would regret it.

I don't understand what you're caught up on. Who gives a fuck what the difference between male and female regret is, it's still regret.

You've now called me a bitch and obtuse, how you doing today dude? Rough day dealing with your fellow high school buddies?

[–]RojoEscarlata -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

We here give a fuck what the difference between men and women are on any level.

Stop being an obtuse little whiny bitch, if you don't want to be called one.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I bet the dude who broke up Taylor Swift regrets it too.

Eh, the guy who did that, Gyllenhaal, is an alpha, he really could care less.

It only really works one way around because the only thing men are really looking for in a relationship is sex, so when they break up it's because they've had enough of the women.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Eh, the guy who did that, Gyllenhaal, is an alpha, he really could care less.

I meant the guy from high school, not her peer 'celebrities'.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (4 children)

She was a virgin til she met him so, it probably would have been the boyfriend getting dumped before that, or waiting for marriage the poor sap.

But generally, I don't really think men will typically regret dumping an ex after she goes famous, because it's like, what does a man want with a woman's fame, women love the attention from being a partner, the money etc. But with a man it's more what he can get with his two hands.

Edit: like they might regret dumping a woman otherwise, but not because of her fame.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Women covet men with status, whereas most men aren't interested in a woman's fame.

[–]Diarrhea_Van_Frank 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I'm not gonna lie, if I dumped T Swifty in high school, I'd regret it now and for the same reasons. But I'm not about to go on the news and beg her to take me back. Hell, I'd probably just tell her to write a song about me. It's working out well for Drew.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If I knew she's write a song about me, tarnishing my reputation (to those who knew me), I wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole.

[–]Diarrhea_Van_Frank 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think at this point that it's tarnishing anyone's reputation. I would be proud as hell about it. Do you know how much ass Drew Hardwick got from "Teardrops On My Guitar"?

[–]PissedPajamas 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Alex Turner is a sex God and I had the pleasure of seeing him work the room live. He was cool, calm and collected at all times, he couldve batted his eyelashes and gotten every girl in the first row pregnant. I actually heard a girl behind me say "he's so full of himself, but God he's attractive"

It's all about how you carry yourself, fuck everything else. Dude could've said "I think Hitler was pretty cool" and every girl would've walked out of the venue with a swastika tattoo.

[–]killm3throwaway 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's the best, saw him at glastonbury and he's so fucking arrogant, but plays it so well. It's what makes him seem so fucking cool, that blatant cockiness combined with the confidence to follow it through. Man knows how to play a song and control a crowd.

Yes I am a major fan boy.

[–]bvolkl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is literally the embodiment of the Avril Lavine song "sk8r boy"

[–]NolanKnowstheTruth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fame hunter. If she had stayed she would still be in the news telling everyone that she was a loyal girlfriend from high school that was left behind as soon as he got famous.

[–]TRPhd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I see another angle. I think she knows she's not hot enough to have kept a rock star, so now she gets to wax wistful about what might have been. Women are very practical about what men they can keep (not which men they can get, but which they can keep) and I think the fantasy means more to her than the reality might have.

She wouldn't have minded getting a nice divorce pay-day when her rockstar husband cheated on her, though.

[–]HereditarianVuIsTrue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She should do a cover of this song and reverse the genders:


[–]Luckyluke23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

great post man.

made me realize what raising your can do for you and why it's worth it to put the time in to raise it.

I also see WHY it matter. I've always tired to get girls " as me" ( or for a better term " as is" ) and I wasn't trying to raise my SMV. ( was just trying to get girls) I see now it's better to raise your SMV and let the girls come to you, Rather than chasing them. ( you will still need to put work in, just going about it differently)

[–]passthetreesplease 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She was also a senior in high school at the time and fully realized she had made an immature mistake.

[–]TheRNSPaperboy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

He wrote a song about it. Its a B-side called "Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts"

Yes sir, and it's fucking genius too.

[–]TheRNSPaperboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It deserved to be on a record I was shocked it didn't make it

[–]getRedPill 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Her actual mate should leave her. Divorce and if there are kids they be passed to him with alimony included paid by her. She is a potential risk for him and kids if they are. She is not mature or mentally capable of raising a family.

[–]killm3throwaway 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro we all know that's not what the law will think.

[–]XtremePeace 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This could also have been a fuel for this guy's success. Anyways, thank you and fuck you bitch lol

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Was in the paper a while back, she wasn't that hot, just a childhood friend. Oh damn that was awhile back, I went to find the image, damn 06, I feel so old, that paper was closed down aswell.

On a side note my favourite song from them is fluorescent adolescent.

[–]killm3throwaway 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In fact that entire album is impressive, every song being lyrical genius.

[–]Kaquin 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I'm more disgusted by the fact that she left him for a guy that drives this piece of shit. I get it, but come on, at least pick a guy with a better fucking car.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

It's not that bad a car, especially not for a young fella. What's wrong with it?

[–]Kaquin 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I misread the article. Thought the fourth year of High School in the UK was the same as that of the US. For a 14 year old this is much more understandable.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The woman said she went with an older lad, and the minimum driving age here is 17.

[–]Kaquin 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah, I was under the impression that she would be around 18 or 19, so an older lad would be something like 25.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, I see what you mean. It's still not that bad a car, though.

[–]mikehod -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's so funny, I listened to the words of that new(ish) Adele song Hello, and it is exactly like this scenario IMO.

Bitch calls up 10 or so years later to ask to sit down and 'go over' the past, where she tries apologizing for 'breaking his heart'.

Bitch, how about NO leave me the fuck alone, I'm way better off, quit calling you called a thousand times 'No means NO!'

You LOSE! Good DAY SIR! (said in best Willy Wanka voice).
