Although for most of you this is an unwritten rule. But for Some, you still do it, or question if you should. I'll share an experience that I feel is worth mentioning, that happened with me recently that can maybe give you some incite on why it's never a good idea.
So I had this hot girl who I plated for a couple months. She was drama free (for me). Knew I was sleeping with other people. Never asked about them or gave me any issues what so ever. We would hangout once a week usually. Watch some tv, Fuck and then she would leave.
Things we're great but she eventually dropped because at the time I relapsed back into drugs and she wanted no part of it. Which I understood and we both agreed the best was to part ways, mostly by her choice but I wasn't begging for her to stay. So I said I understand.
So things leave off as good as they could. Now I have this good buddy who we will call Z. Now I introduced Z to TRP and he loved it. He was new and still learning but it was doing him good. But by no means was he alpha enough or digested the pill enough to handle what was about To happen to him.
Now over bro tales and RP stories in the gym, we were discussing the theory of plates. After some talk of them. I told him about her and How she was drama free for me and one of the best plates I ever had. etc.
Well wouldn't you know it, a week or so Later she is liking his pictures and she hits him up on IG. Asking to hangout Or whatever. Z confronts me about it. Asks about her. If she's a whore and if I would be upset if they hung out. I had zero issue with it being she was just a plate. I had no emotional feelings towards her (I had more plates in line) and she was ultimately a cool chick to me. So I told him I don't care to go for it if that is what he wants. But to beware because I'm not sure what her intentions are, or if she's just trying to piss me off. Or what, to just be careful. (Just found the whole thing weird. She came out of no where and hit him up. And me and him were in pictures together on his IG.)
Anyway. So he hangs out with her and time goes on. He is asking me advice if he should date her that he's starting to really like her. And asked, would I be mad. I tell him that's up to him and I honestly couldn't care less to do whatever makes him happy. That I have totally moved on from that. They start to date and a couple weeks go by, Z hits me up. Saying she wants him to stop hanging out with his one friend and this and that. That she feels he's bad news for him. I tell him beware of that type of shit but ultimately it's up to him to create boundaries and it's his responsibility to put his foot down when necessary. Or leave.
I then get a text a week after that asking if me and her still had a thing for each other. Mind you I haven't spoke, saw, said one word to her since we parted ways. I didn't know what type of shit she was feeding him but it didn't sound good.
Weeks go by and Z stops responding to me and all our close friends calls/texts. It's been a month now and no one has heard from Z. I had something of his I needed to return. Since I didn't hear from him for so long. I hit her up asking if he was okay that I couldn't get ahold of him and I had something I needed to get to him. She replied, "If he wanted to talk to you I'm sure he would get ahold of you." Well okay then bitch.
I shrug it off. I call it what it is. Because I could see what was happening. And go about my business.
Some time goes by and Z reaches back out, says he needs to talk to me. Tells me they broke up. That he's so sorry for being a shitty friend. that she was crazy and tried to get him to stop hanging out with all his friends. And Would manipulate the fuck out of him. Yadda yadda.
He said she told him that he had to stop talking to me, because I was bad news for him. (I guess telling him, she was drama free and to go for it was bad news for him. Hmm irony) Along with all his other friends. That if he would say he's going to hangout with us she would say she's going to the bar with her "guy friends" or go out and not respond to him all night, Etc. shit that fucked with his head.
After the break up, She tried to then reach out to me asking if "what I said was true" this smelt like bait so I just sent a question mark. She said that he told her I said she was some huge slut and this and that. I felt like she was just trying to get me and him arguing so I ignored it.
Some would say he wasn't a good friend that I should cut him. But I forgave Z because I knew this was a learning experience for him and a lesson that most of us guys go through at some point. He even admitted he needed to go through that, that it taught him a lot about himself.
Moral of the story: Don't date or get involved with woman your friends have got involved with. Some of these women love the drama and will take the weak minded men who you think are your close friends, and try to turn them against you. Cause all sorts of drama between the brotherhood and it's not worth it. Find yourself another girl who doesn't have ties within your circle. pussy is never worth the loss of a good brotherhood.
It's also funny to note how a woman can be a drama free plate for an alpha male. And a huge pain in the ass, control freak for the beta.
Edit: there is a happy ending to the story. Z is back to his normal self, we're still close friends and he's spinning multiple plates, banging women left and right, and really has made some huge progress since this incident.
