I submitted a post to asktrp a month ago, wondering if I had backdoor LTR'd my favorite plate. In the process of doing so, a remarkable thing happened: all but one of the women in question turned up their vigor in pursuit of me. The one plate I kept, seeing an opportunity for commitment, has increased all of her attention and continually "checks in" to see if we're making progress toward her commitment goal.
TL;DR / Summary: Withdrawing attention before commitment increases your perceived SMV. Creating the impression of availability while withholding commitment makes you more attractive. Women are attracted to the potential outcomes of your encounters and the potential benefits of commitment. Trading this potential for real commitment yields power to the woman. Control over your ability to commit or walk away is one of your most valuable assets.
I gave the background in my OP but briefly, I'll go through the outcomes with each plate and the lesson learned.
Single mom HB 8 from Tinder. Ghosted her. I get occasional nude snaps. "Ive been working out" (She has! Amazing body with no baby damage!) Received text message recently saying "so am I ever going to see you again?" Also got a nude this evening thru text. "here's one you can save. LMK when you're free"
Ex stripper HB7 into group sex. Very hot friends. Freindzoned her. Ended up having a MMFFF with her and her friends two weeks after I explained to her I needed more time to myself and couldn't commit to what she wanted (an LTR). Between the time I told her of my decision and went no contact and the next time we saw each other she had 1) gained about 10lbs and 2) started smoking again. When I asked her why she told me she had "been eating [her] feelings". Since our last encounter I've gotten daily texts from her. She keeps talking about how all the time I've spent in the gym is paying off. She has actually plated herself.
Single mom, HB6 but awesome personality. Ghosted. Traded a few snaps but I think she figured out I wasn't into her when I refused her sex after she made a racist comment.
HB9 attorney in adjacent city. Ghosted. A week after this she questioned me saying "[she] thought things were going really well..." Told her my decision was final and she said she was ok with it. A week later she asked me if I wanted to go to an NBA game with her. Two days ago she said she was coming to [my location] on business if I "wanted to meet up"
Kind of nerdy Engineer, HB8, would make a great redpillwomen user. Friendzoned her. She was sending me pics the other day of new underwear she had bought. "Which ones are sexiest?" and conversation closing "I shoulda been buying these for you" text messages.
HB8 15 years younger than me. Noticed I wasn't going out as much. Told her I was cutting back on dating and spending more time in the gym. Got two random presents from her, an invitation to spend a weekend together and she has been dropping passive hints that she'd like to "have something with a title." The sex has never been better. I wish I had words to describe what its like when a woman is in full pursuit mode.
In closing, I didn't expect that withdrawing attention while maintaining perceived availability could be so powerful. I dropped the plates not to game girls but because I wanted more time for myself. The results of that decision have serendipitously taught me a valuable lesson.
