I implemented TRP doctrine for two years. Here is the results. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by gettabyte

First off, thank you guys. This is not only a great community for the men's benefit, but even more so for the women's benefit.

Around two years ago, i finished reading all the side bar and handbook 2nd ed. It was a great eye opener and everything made sense immediately. I must say that i wasn't a beta, but i didn't have much experience with women.

I started implementing everything i learned from the handbook in real life. I immediately had results, i had multiple dates, i was much more comfortable around women. I think people are afraid of the things they don't understand. But i knew women now and i knew the things they want, the things even they don't know they want.

After some dates, kisses and a few one night stands, i found a promising girl for a relationship. I must say after you read the handbook you get the feeling that women are evil. But it's a misconception. Women are evolved that way and you must understand them that way, then you get over that feeling.

In the beginning, there were some problems, especially because she was a kind of alpha in her circle. But i was very strict about the rules of TRP. Soon she accepted my authority. I made it clear that i was the dominant one and i would find another girl very easily if i wanted.

I now realize the most important thing i did right, was being emotionally unresponsive. Women are already very emotional and you have to be -at least look like- emotionally stable. Whenever she cried about something stupid, or had some problem about her family, i was rock solid, i didn't cry with her, i told her that those were not that important problems, she shouldn't worry too much at max.

Whenever she had some stupid problem with me that i am not aware of, and she didn't talk with me, i just ignored her. Soon she realized -now she confesses- that we were to start talking again anyway and it was stupid for her to do this for two days. She started to talk with me directly anytime she had a problem with me.

Also very important, you should never, ever step back while she starts crying. It doesn't change anything. It's not only trp, it's my character, when she pulls a face and didn't talk with me, i asked myself these questions.

  • did i get caught fucking other women? no.
  • do we have a place for living? yes.
  • do we have enough food and water for living? yes.
  • do we have jobs and enough money? yes.

then she has some stupid problem and she will get over it. and sure she did. i never asked her, please my love tell me what's your problem. please ...

Now she says she cannot live one day without me, she tells all the time how much she loves me, how much she's lucky to have me etc. I can give her any order and she will happily do it. She prepares dinner, i have sex whenever i want, she serves well when i have a guest, she never bitches about anything.

Btw, i don't tell the same things, like you are my life bla bla. Mostly i just smile or kiss her when she says it. She knows i am not emotional and she doesn't expect the same words from me.

Again thank you TRP for everything..

UPDATE: When i started this thread, i thought it would be deleted (there is a warning) but i wrote it anyway because i sincerely wanted to thank TRP. I didn't expect such good comments, thanks for that.

There are people who are more fanatic than the founders of TRP and take everything literally. I believe you should embrace TRP not decide everything in your life according to a book like bigots.

Refreshing to hear some actual progress. Something I take from this post, and something I've been learning over the past few years, is you have to be manipulative to have a successful relationship with a woman.

This means withdrawing attention when she behaves in an unwanted way:

Whenever she had some stupid problem with me that i am not aware of, and she didn't talk with me, i just ignored her.

Withdraw your attention. Perfect, and something most guys don't have the balls to do because of lack of abundance of options.

Rewarding good behavior with attention, and punishing bad behavior with withdrawl. Some people would say this is bad because of how manipulative it is.

1: Women do this shit ALL THE TIME. It's hard wired into their psyche to manipulate men for their benefit (just look at the common Beta-male)

2: Women LOVE when you do this. Every women I've encountered since developing these strategies has reacted positively, with similar reactions OP has been getting with his girl. This is because Women have a lack of direction in life because of bastardization of societies view on masculinity. They LOVE to be directed by a strong and competent man. I believe that one of the reasons feminism exists in it's current demonic form is because there is this deep desire for Male dominance in our feminized society; where, the main driver of these possessed ideologues is to bring about a dominant tyranny under the guise of "equity". I digress, If you aren't leading your women in your life, she will constantly be looking for someone who will.

[–]samenrofringslikeLBJ 6 points6 points [recovered]

Manipulative is the wrong word. It implies deception and deceit. There is nothing wrong about leading any peeson to better behaviour, be it your girl or a friend or a family member. Your parents didnt manipulate you into becoming an adult, they raised you.

[–]greatamericancities 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Well said.

An animal trainer practices "withdrawing attention" in order to extinguish an existing behavior. This is sometimes necessary before a new behavior can be trained, especially if the cues for the existing behavior are the same as those for the new behavior (that you want to establish).

Note that a trainer does not judge the morality of a behavior. He doesn't worry about a behavior being good or bad, only wether it is desired or not. Desired by the trainer, that is, not by the trainee.

Punishment is not a good way to extinguish a behavior. Punishment is attention and attention is generally a reward. It can be done but withdrawing attention works much better. Once you see the behavior you want, or even the first parts of that behavior, a reward will reinforce it.

Finally, trainers expect bad behaviors to recur, later on. If your training approach is on point they will happen less and less often, on the way to being fully extinguished. They will occur in the middle of good behaviors, without warning. Be ready, be deliberate, and don't react automatically. Ignore the behavior you don't want and wait for the one you do want, then reinforce it with the reward.

[–]yi4 1 point2 points  (2 children)

can you apply this to parenting and out of control children?

[–]greatamericancities 5 points6 points  (1 child)


Modern approach is the "time out"; old-school approach is "corner time". Either way you are withdrawing attention, if done correctly.

[–]WalterEArmstrong 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's called "operant conditioning" and it's been a proven technique for 50 years.

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorRian_Stone 87 points88 points  (6 children)

A well trained dog is a happy dog. They want you to be happy with them, they don't know how. Showing them how allows the both of you to be happy.

Granted, dogs are unconditionally loyal, but a woman is almost as good

[–]throwawayclarkken 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Sorry for the downvote . I dont approve as good as a dog comment .

A dog is the loyalest thing ever . Also you can't compare apples to oranges . I don't have to put in work to keep my dog loyal. It comes like breathing to him. Women are a different breed altogether you have to put in work to keep em loyal. To which I don't give a fuck

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

A lot of dogs will respond to whoever feeds them.

[–]throwawayclarkken 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Responding is something else divorce rape me just cause she doesn’t have the same feels that won’t happen with the dog

[–]Mescuzzi 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I cannot agree enough. I've had a very successful relationship so far doing the same thing OP and what this comment suggests.

Once you figure out that's how the game works, you play by it.

"Whether or not you want to play the game, the game will be played" -someone, probably

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Very similar to training a dog.

[–]greatamericancities 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes, exactly.

We don't like to think of people as "animals" unless we're being scientific about it. Likewise, we don't like to think of our interactions as "animal training", even though that's exactly what they are.

[–]markdumte 4 points5 points  (2 children)

something I've been learning over the past few years, is you have to be manipulative to have a successful relationship with a woman

Is that being manipulative? Seems to me a normal response.

You are being direct and not lying. Being manipulative would be, for example, to insinuate something that is not true to misled her and make her do something based on that false information. That is manipulative. But just removing yourself because she is being unreasonable does not seem manipulative.

[–]Gutrek 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Depends on your definition of manipulation.

[–]greatamericancities 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sure. But when we use "manipulation" with a bad connotation we generally mean inducing someone to do something that is against their own interests. I don't think that's the case here.

The goal is for you and her to be happy with each other and the relationship. That's in her interest!

[–]_mid_night_ 3 points3 points [recovered]

What if she begins to feel like you don't care about her because of this somewhat detached persona? How should one proceed if the goal is to keep her?

[–]Gutrek 8 points9 points  (9 children)

This isn't about not caring about women. Its about not putting up with petty behavior. Its about having strong boundaries and not rewarding shitty behavior. Big difference. As far as the detached persona goes, I imagine this means you aren't really used to putting your foot down with women, so you feel like you wouldn't be "being yourself" if you tried to stand up to a women when she overstepped her boundaries.

How do you know that this part of you that feels a need to protect your women's feelings over you own personal boundaries isn't some detached persona?

[–]_mid_night_ 1 points1 points [recovered]

This was my first relationship, so my ultimate goal was to learn and gain experience about myself and women, and I have. And what I've learned is that I really don't have any personal boundaries because in addition to not being unemotional, im indifferent af because I don't care bout most shit, brush off n proceed quickly. I think I felt a need to protect her feelings because we have mutual friends and I had to be careful with what I did because of the potential bullshit I might have to deal with if something happened. I'm 17 btw n this relationship was over a month ago.

[–]Gutrek 1 points1 points [recovered]

Okay so it sounds to me like you suffer from an Agreeable nature. Don't worry so much about what others are going to think of you. It's hard to do when you're someone who likes to avoid conflict; but, you have to be someone who stands up for what you think if you are going to be a respectable person. If you have no personal boundaries that you aren't firm about, you are going to seriously be taken advantage of by others, especially women you are trying to form an intimate relationship with.

It's part of being a man. Remember, men are not just men. Men are also ANIMALS. Do respectable animals (let's say a lion) let less respectable animals (women) walk all over them? Would a female lion want to fuck with a male lion that was taken advantage of by human women? Then why would a human woman want to fuck with a human man who is taken advantage of by a human woman?

[–]Patriarchysaurus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Would a female lion want to fuck with a male lion that was taken advantage of by human women?

Lol wut? The lions in the zoo have female human keepers. Newsflash: they still fuck (the lions do).

Most of being an animal is obeying instinct, absent superego.

[–]_mid_night_ 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don't think she considered me a pushover btw because one of the reasons she broke up was because she felt I was too dominant. I wasn't actively trying to be dominant at all, so I didn't expect that.

[–]Gutrek 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I dont know the dynamics of your past relationship, but id caution you when listening to a woman's words. Watch her actions. She says dominant but could be meaning something completely different.

[–]xFLASHYx 0 points1 point  (1 child)

After withdrawing attention, when do you start giving attention back? After good behaviour? And do you seek resolution of the problem? What is YOUR process to go from bad behaviour> withdraw>fix problem(or not)>back to normal?

[–]Gutrek 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Withdraw attention until she contacts you. If she isn't interested in being reasonable at that point, withdraw attention again. If at any point she ceases contact (which actually is unlikely unless you act like a bitch), next the hoe.

[–]ioncehadsexinapool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What about career driven women? Are you implying any woman is just looking for mr chad to come swoop her away and leave her current life behind?

Can you please elaborate what you mean by “leading women into your life”

[–]general-heartless 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is manipulative and people do it all the time, whether they realize it or not. Embrace the darkness, play with it, use it to your advantage.

[–]brinkleybuzz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This means withdrawing attention when she behaves in an unwanted way

This isn't being manipulative. It's having the balls to act like you feel. The natural response to a woman who's acting like a bitch or spoiled brat is to get as far away from her as possible.

[–]CrimsonMoonz 83 points84 points  (12 children)

My mother is an angel. Did not divorce my dad even though he is jobless and our family is in a financial crisis. She loves me too much to hurt me with a divorce (Men love women, women love children). She was an opera singer and ditched her career to spend all her time to raise me with high self-esteem.

During the disobedience phase of my teen years, she would often confront me about my rebellious behaviors. It would follow this general trend:

She confronts. I retaliate with an educated response to assert my unwavering position. She gets frustrated and leaves the room. 5 minutes later, she comes back to confront me again to repeat this cycle at least 3 or 4 times before she came back to me and apologize for the upsetting emotional atmosphere. I knew she just wanted me to apologize to her, and I did, because the last thing I wanted was for my mother to feel like I did not love her.

This would frustrate the shit out of me, and I even called her out on this cyclical behavior. So one time, I recorded one of our arguments and that's when I realized something about all women, good and bad. They generally do not hold onto their arguments, but consistently re-direct focus on the present circumstances of their emotional state, rather than disclosing (and taking responsibility for) the root cause of it in the first place. I decided to record this because it allowed me to demonstrate instances in which I could draw upon root causes and explain to her why she had invalid arguments and inconsistent reasoning. A lot of the times when I called her out on this in the past, she would deny the literal words she said because she intended for a different emotional response and say "That's not what I said." When she really meant "That's not what I meant for you to feel when I said that." In her mind, it was unimportant who was right. It was more important how everyone felt.

So what happened when I recorded and exposed her, even going as far as suggesting that we include an unbiased third party for cross-examination? She started crying. She had a breakdown, fell down to sit against a wall while holding her hands on her face, and said, "How could you do this to your own mother?" I felt nothing but contempt for my own mother because she chose to use this behavior as a misdirection technique that simply did not work on me. She also cried every morning while doing early morning prayers, and so I think I became desensitized to her crying in general. It was literally all the time. Perhaps this was a good experience for me, because I do not feel anything for crying women, period.

[–]1CoupDeGrace22 25 points26 points  (5 children)

You took a huge redpill right there, kudos.

Women's last ditch effort when they are out of options and mostly when they feel the power has shifted against them is always crying, being stone cold and un-reactive to that is basically denying her any and all power she has left as a woman.

[–]Squats4urmom 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Crying women give me a boner.

[–]markdumte 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Its funny because its very common. Lots of men get a Bonner when their girlfriend/wife cries to them.

There has to be some evolutionary reason for it. Maybe because it makes us feel needed and "the man" in control?

[–]MusicSports 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Based on my 30 seconds of thinking about this, I think it might be because she is at one of her highest possible emotional states, and since any emotion for women is good, we instinctively know that if we fucked them right there it'd blow both of our minds?

[–]Patriarchysaurus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You're on to something, friend. It's true, "makeup" sex mends many maladies.

[–]greatamericancities 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is brilliant. I haven't felt that reaction in the past. Usually just feel a bit embarrassed that someone is losing control of their composure, especially when it happens in the workplace. Need to work on my own reaction and see if I can train myself to respond this way.

[–]greatamericancities 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Experience is similar. She tries out various arguments, not caring too much when they're demolished. When her list is exhausted she goes for the emotional, "how could you", angle. If that fails to move you, she bursts into tears. "I'm a bad mother...", etc.

So repetitive it feels instinctual. Like the digger wasp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNvi_j2z96w

[–]Patriarchysaurus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Red_Faust 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This comment is awesome. I'm saving it for posterity.

This is how women "think" emotionally, and you have deployed an uncannily accurate analysis of this.

[–]2wiseclockcounter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you should definitely expand on this in a dedicated post, it's a pretty crucial idea.

[–]brinkleybuzz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You learned that men think and women feel, which makes arguing with a woman pointless.

[–]TRPDigesting 12 points13 points  (2 children)

That's great to hear your progress man. Well outlined post, too.

Knowing myself and my past patterns, if a girl told me she could not live one day without me, that's usually the point where I start reaching for the door...

[–]gainsincoming 4 points5 points  (1 child)

My current girlfriend is saying shit of similar nature and I just don't know how to respond. I, too, find it pretty fucking weird as we've only been 'together' for 5 months.

How do you see the situation? Why would you start reaching for the door? I feel the same way but I don't believe I really understand why I feel so tempted to do so.

[–]TRPDigesting 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That’s a great question. I’m not sure I have a satisfying answer, but let me give it a go.

When a girl says something like this, it gives me a pretty heavy-handed bonk over the head that she is now depending on me. Or rather, she sees me as essential to her life.

Unless I’m 100% positive I want to see this girl for the rest of my life, or for an undefined length period of time, she’s now made me concerned that breaking up with her would be troublesome. If somebody “can’t live without you” (even though that’s hyperbole), they’re certainly not going to go quietly if you tell them “it’s not working out.”

Basically, it feels like it’s a preemptive threat to my freedom. Now that I know somebody would be devastated if I were to exit their life, I feel a strange sense of paranoia and fear that I have to stay IN their life.

This is a mindset that makes me more concerned with “escaping their clutches” rather than continuing the relationship like I’m not feeling this way. Plus, I feel like the longer I stay with them, the more I’m allowing them to fall deeper in love with me or expect that I’m going to be there forever. Making the inevitable bandaid peel all the more painful.

That’s my take on it anyway. It’s sort of like Pook said, women don’t want a bird who will be willingly caged — they want a wild bird that they can capture IN the cage, involuntarily. Or something to that effect.

And earlier in 2017 I had an experience that was a Red Pill crash course. Basically, it involved a girl who lived in Miami (and I in Seattle) who declared me to be her soulmate. She became infatuated with me. She thought everything about me was perfect, that we were destined to be together, that we had even been together in past lives, etc etc.

To be perfectly honest, it was kind of compelling and flattering at first. But because she was so far away, she made a point of saying she “didn’t own me.” That I was “free to date and be with whoever.” Oh, fucking Lol. I was a hair younger, and a wig foolish. Women don’t say what they mean...or at least, it goes out the window when the cards hit the table.

Despite enjoying my time with her when she’d visit, I had still been casually dating around. She caught wind of this while visiting me and had an inconceivable meltdown, cried for hours on “how I could betray her like this” and it was just one of the most unpleasant experiences I’ve had.

I shuttled her ass back to the airport, and she texted me two days later saying how she had meditated deeply and shed her anger and that she would always love me forever.....and I was like, “Yeah, no.” I blocked her on all social and text. Have had no further contact.

Her irrational love and dependency frightens me. I can’t believe that anybody could express that kind of attachment after really only knowing me a couple of months, especially from such a distance.

So that’s my analysis. It sure turned into quite a novel — hope you gleaned something useful from it. Best of luck man.

[–]NotAnotherSJWAgain 32 points33 points  (1 child)

This is all very fine and good. You’re playing life on easy mode. Want to make it interesting? Marry her and have children together. Get back to us 5-10 years later and let me know how it goes.

[–]sparks_mandrill 30 points31 points  (4 children)

Good post man. Too bad the zealots on here are coming out, reaming you for cohabitating with the girl.

[–]lerossignol77 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I’m still not sure what withdrawing your attention is all about. For example, how does that apply to some girl you just met and wanna fuck? Or a girl you’ve seen on the regular who picks a fight with you in public? You’re not just gonna look at her blankly. How does that translate to situations outside private places?

[–]meaningintragedy 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Don't cohabitate with women for the simple reason you can't next/ghost someone you cohabitate with.
If you want her around, let her bring some of her stuff and let her hang out in your place, that's the closest thing to cohabitation you could do.

[–]gettabyte[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There are certain disadvantages. For me the most apparent one was that i didn't have my private time as much. It got better over time.

[–]Lady_Of_Nil_Repute 2 points2 points [recovered]

RPW absolutely agree with you too :)

As much as TRP benefits men, it had also benefited women greatly with understanding themselves, myself included - especially shit tests, comfort tests, understanding my own irrational, emotion driven decisions and the importance of following his lead. I'm in a M/s LTR and I've mostly lurked here for several years. Ironically, I initially started reading TRP as a lark - a watch the "misogynist pigs at the zoo" mindset. Instead I ended up swallowing the pill. Oops.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You broke the gender declaration rule. /u/PaperStreetVilla, she needs a 2-week timeout in the naughty corner.

[–]Lady_Of_Nil_Repute 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Sorry :(. I am very aware of the gender declaration rule, and that the various RP areas are male spaces. I really do lurk mostly, and read so I can learn how to be a better first mate.

I thought the rule was no giving using your gender as a platform for authority though? I.e. no "As a women, I think you should..." I'm sorry if I got that wrong.

My intent was only to reinforce OP, not to try and give any advice or speak from any authority. I just really liked his post.

Not trying to defy mods or wiggle out of anything, just trying to explain my thought process because I'm worried I really messed up.

This is very true. When you do this, women get crazy. It is actually very easy..I mena it is not hard to be unavailable emotionally and to not reveal much. Just shut the fuck up and things should be fine.

[–]BeeSwattter 3 points4 points  (3 children)

"And she fetches the paper, and has learned to shit outside. She's a good girl."

[–]greatamericancities 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Guessing this comment was facetious. Even so, it's accurate.

You might be surprised what a woman can be trained to do, and how much she will appreciate being trained and exercised accordingly. Society being what it is, she'll probably want it to be kept just between the two of you.

[–]Patriarchysaurus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And I think you'll agree that men are no different in that regard. Ugly truths don't get much airplay, even on TRP.

[–]greatamericancities 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agree. Almost all animals can be trained and social animals are especially amenable.

Men are easier to train than women. I think it's because they want to appear rational, and because they are more accountable to each other, but perhaps that's just my own prejudice and limitations talking.

Realizing how trainable I am was a breakthrough. I can train myself to a new behavior (self improvement) or recognize when others are attempting to shape my behavior (persuasion, incentives).

Not sure why this is an "ugly truth" that we avoid, but it definitely is. Have a few ideas but would take a while to unpack that.

[–]womans_algorithm 3 points4 points  (1 child)

My experience is similar since I found TRP. Got some lays, but I'm more of a relationship type of guy. I have a girlfriend now, we're at the start, but it's really awesome to be a man, and she a woman in a relationship.

I got past the:

Soon she accepted my authority. I made it clear that i was the dominant one and i would find another girl very easily if i wanted.

And now I need to get the

She started to talk with me directly anytime she had a problem with me.

stage. My question is, u/gettabyte, you got to this stage simply by giving and refusing giving her attention when she did something good/bad? EDIT: Also, how much time did it take you to get to this stage?

[–]gettabyte[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I never asked her what was the problem when she pulls a face. They are craving for it.

Tbh i told her verbally a few times that she shouldn't try to find meanings from my acts. She shouldn't write scenarios in her head. Finally, she couldn't empathize men so she shouldn't try in the first place.

It didn't happen overnight, it took the second six months of the relationship.

You're gonna have some god damn trouble when the day comes to next her. Or did you not get that far in the handbook?... You need to have your exit strategy ready to go at any single day, mate.

Understand that empathy is ok for LTR. I feel that there is a difference between emotionally unresponsive and being in control of your emotions during stressful times. Her problems are important to her and should be acknowledged but your respond will be more logical than emotional

In the early days of TRP, there was no sidebar. The sidebar was built from the best content posted to the main as men went into the field and experimented.

That tradition now falls to you, and to other newcomers. Go into the field, apply the wisdom that has been collected for you, and be the next wave of good content.
