The moral of this story is to never fake red pill ideas, make them a reality.
I saw an old friend recently. While I was born red pilled, I hadn't come across this sub in the time that I knew this girl. The amount of theories she confirmed was startling.
Sarah started off by telling me that she and Mark had broken up for the last time about a week ago. Sarah had been dating Mark for 7 months, the last few being on-again off-again. Sarah said that Mark was almost always a standup guy- emotionally, he was always there for her, he answered all her texts immediately, etc.
However, she subtly revealed that she saw Mark as a complete beta. She complained that Mark didn't make her feel "safe." When he walked her home, she didn't feel like Mark could deter other men. She complained that Mark always asked for her attention, and that she couldn't stand how he never seemed to be doing things on his own.
She told me when they argued, Mark would say he had other girls lining up for him. She also told me that when they had a "break," she fucked another dude, and she even told him about it. This is when I knew Mark was lying, and didn't have jack shit waiting for him. Dude straight up took her back within a week after she let another man fuck her with almost zero effort. If you do something like this, how can you expect your girlfriend to ever respect you? How can you expect your girlfriend to be attracted to you when she doesn't respect you?
And then, of course, she told me she has slept with two other men within the last week after breaking up with Mark. And she even overspoke about the guy that had fucked her the night before. She told me his "moves" like turning the lights down when she came in, playing music, pouring her wine without asking, etc. Sarah then said the most ironic sentence I've ever heard-
"I really didn't like that he seemed like he had done those moves before and that I was probably 'just another girl' to him,' but ugh if he asked to just be friends with benefits with me I'd do it in a second."
And this, friends, is why you cannot rely solely on your looks. You cannot rely on being nice. Women do not find a "gentleman" attractive because it signifies that you're happy being her bitch, and ultimately don't deserve her respect. Naturally, we covet what is seen as unobtainable, not what makes itself available. Don't make Mark's mistake- don't fake "dread game." If you wish to have a successful LTR, you need to command respect without ever having to bargain for it. Once you lose that, she will never find you as attractive as someone who is "above" the two of you.
Never stop cultivating your worth, and never stop having "options" so that you make act on them if necessary. This does not mean you need to cheat, obviously, but if you don't make other women jealous, your woman will be insatiable, and will cheat on you.
Unrelated, but here's the darkest thing she told me: Sarah feels like she's been a slut, and wants to change. She's tired of all the frat boys and players whom have fucked her and not stayed around. She wants a man who respects her and doesn't expect her to fuck on the first date.
That line disgusted me, but rang a bell that I didn't believe from TRP- AF BB. The next time you put in 2 months of "effort" on a girl, remember she might just be Sarah, who would BEG to suck Chad's dick. This is why you need to improve yourself, brothers.
