Off TopicMy buddy's newfound success caused his (now ex) girlfriend to lose her mind. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Rudy_J_Peebs

Last year, my buddy's business took off and he's making a ridiculous amount of money. He makes more in 6 weeks than most people make in a year. It's sick, I admit even I'm jealous of him.

He'd been dating the same girl for 4 years. She has a 'strong personality', he's beta-ish and easygoing, so she often just bowled him over and got her own way. Even so, it seemed like they were happy, they had discussed buying a house together, all signs were pointing to marriage in the near future -- which is why it was such a surprise when he broke up with her 2 weeks ago.

I finally got to see him last weekend and his side of the story is crazy. When she found out exactly how much he was making last summer, she immediately wanted to quit her job and "come work for him" (even though there's nothing she'd be qualified to do). He said no, but from that point onward she regularly pressured him about it -- increasing her demands to wanting to travel the world together on his dime, have him pay off her student loans, etc.

She started getting unjustifiably suspicious. She wanted to know where he was at all hours of the day, who he was talking to, who he was texting. I remember we'd go out and he'd stare at his phone half the night answering her calls and texts. He basically wasn't allowed to speak to or hang out with girls alone anymore, no matter the scenario.

She basically ruined their Christmas by being standoffish all day because he "only" got her a $500 watch. He said by this time they weren't even having sex anymore (!) -- she was just resentful and hostile toward him pretty much 24/7. But that didn't stop her from talking about marriage and trying to guilt him into proposing soon. Every day she'd be showing him expensive cars, houses, wedding venues and travel destinations. All she talked about was money and ways to spend it.

Finally, two weeks ago he woke up at 3AM to find her awake and going through his phone. That was the nail in the coffin; after a huge argument he ended the relationship. She came to her senses and tried desperately to get back together a few days later, "apologizing and taking full responsibility for everything", but he (smartly) refused. Now she's been running her yap to all their mutual friends about how "money has changed him" and "he thinks he's too good for me now". So now a lot of people think he's an asshole.

I found the whole scenario amusing. If she hadn't altered her behavior, they'd most definitely still be together right now. Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar, yet she basically did the opposite. I don't understand her thought process, it's like the thought of being rich short-circuited her brain.

I don't understand her thought process, it's like the thought of being rich short-circuited her brain.

He became her unclaimed lottery ticket. First rule with an unclaimed winning lottery ticket, you don't let it out of your sight because someone else can snatch it up and cash it in. That's the sudden possessiveness/jealousy part.

Other part is typical entitlement towards a (now rich) beta. He's been with her so long she couldn't grasp the very thought that he'd break up with her. Just wasn't in the rule book. It's like if your dog stood up on his hind legs and spoke "Fuck this shit, I'm outta here." Just doesn't happen.

[–]2menshouldhaverights 650 points651 points  (4 children)

You are right I did not expect my dog to do that. She was a fucking bitch.

[–]Red_Faust 219 points220 points  (10 children)

Yes, this is it.

Translating it to a more process-oriented analysis, her behaviour was an overreaction to a supernormal stimulus.

Like, in, you drink 10 coffees at once and get ultra excited and hyperactive (or do like Fry, drink 100 and stop time).

A woman usually reacts to a supernormal stimulus from a lover by having sex with him immediately. Like meeting a Chad in a disco and in 5 minutes fucking him raw in the restrooms.

And she reacts to a supernormal stimulus from a provider by trying to tie him down as tight as possible and extracting from him as many resources as possible.

This woman just got carried away and miscalibrated her supernormal reaction.

[–]Patriarchysaurus 88 points89 points  (2 children)

Well put. Him going from Zero to Hero in terms of financial assets only gained him status as a BB, not AF. Thus she went for the hard sell on marriage to seal her steal and unconsciously gave him a big 'ol whiff of hypergamous intent.

[–]kuck_kriller 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And that’s why she’s saying ‘he changed’ and gossiping instead of actually trying to be nice to the guy and get him back.

She despises him on all levels except the money

[–]1DubbleFUPAwitCheez 62 points63 points  (4 children)

Seems you zeroed in on it. It explains the ending of sex completely. He became 100% beta provider in her mind.

[–]theDukesofSwagger 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Upvote for Futurama reference.

[–]EndTimesRadio 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Close, but there’s a bit more.

She thought she was owed for dating him while he was a beta. The payoff was marriage and a ring. She’d given up on the Instagram lifestyle these ho’s flash to each other; effectively, she saw it as ‘sacrifice,’ and him providing her dream lifestyle would be her getting paid back.

That he didn’t spend so lavishly and wasn’t tripping over himself to ‘pay her back,’ had her suspicious. If it wasn’t going to her, where was it all going?

It freaked her out.

[–]Westernhagen 10 points11 points  (1 child)

She thought she was owed for dating him while he was a beta. The payoff was marriage and a ring.

The male version of this is the beta provider who thinks she owes him sex after he gives marriage and a ring -- an idea that provokes screams of outrage from women, of course ("you don't own her body, you animal!").

she saw it as ‘sacrifice,’ and him providing her dream lifestyle would be her getting paid back.

Good luck getting any woman even to acknowledge that you've made sacrifices for her, let alone that you deserve repayment.

[–]diMT-13 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Could also be that if she has the stronger personality she’s used to being the alpha, which will change with the newfound financial boom and previously an insecure person with an unchallenged insecurity now is forced to deal with the face that there’s someone with the bigger metaphorical cojones.

[–]JackGetsIt 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Seems like after women are married they've 'claimed' the ticket and just like normal lottery winners all the bad traits they had before winning are now amplified because they have money. It's also no surprise lottery winners are poor a few years later and no surprise many of these low quality women are divorced so fast.

[–]Romerike 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Unclaimed lottery ticket...great way to put it. Exactly what it was.

[–]Traksimuss 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Just "lottery ticket" level is different for all women. I have seen woman going cray cray after guy got 120,000/year job. Every time visiting them, there would be a scandal heard. Oh yea, finally he dumped her.

[–]rossiFan 666 points667 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of this joke:

A man comes rushing home and tells his wife "Honey! Honey! Pack your bags, I won the lottery!"

She says "That's nice babe, where are we going!!??"

He says " I don't care where you go... just get the fuck out!"

[–]cashmoney_x 670 points671 points  (59 children)

This is the forty billionth time this has happened in human history.

No she didnt. She just lost access to money and tried to get back to it.

I don't think anyone including OP were under any pretenses that this isn't exactly what happened.

[–]1OneRedYear 296 points297 points  (30 children)

when they love you, you are a benevolent golden god and your 13 inch cock spurts chocolate. When they don't get what they want you are a manlet with a vinegar filled 2 inch pecker who's a controlling/abusive/asshole. You can't believe either story. I never believe women when they tell me about their horrible exs. I used to ask "yeah, but what did you do" and sometimes they would actually tell me how they fucked it all up. Now I just smirk and stop listening.

[–]askmrcia 144 points145 points  (22 children)

I never believe women when they tell me about their horrible exs.

So much this. Women always bash their Ex's. Not saying guys don't, but women take it to another level. Guys will usually say "yea she was cheating crazy bitch" and leave it at that.

Women will actually try and ruin their ex's reputation. Try and get everyone to turn on their ex as if she was the perfect angel.

Anyone that has a single mother that talks about that the dad would understand this.

[–]NinjaDingo 80 points81 points  (13 children)

Can confirm. Am going through a marriage separation (13 months into it) and my ex wife continues to character assassinate me to this day, despite the fact that i left due to her abusive & controlling behaviour. It's amazing how much success she's had with convincing my now ex best friend and even my brother with her lies and BS.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 65 points66 points  (6 children)

Been divorced from the first one since 2001, she still bitches about me, including bitching about cars I bought and built way back in the 90s. I'm always wrong, abusive, cheated all the time, never cared about my kids, ran off... you know, basically accusing me of everything she is and did.

[–]nihilismMattersTmro 52 points53 points  (4 children)

my mother still tells me how awful my father is... 27 years after the divorce.

My dad is a stand up guy... I could likely be a homeless drug addict if it wasn't for him.

I should have learned about women from years of hearing my mother talk about dad... but I didn't.

Instead it took years of dealing with my own relationships... and finally reading here for the past few years.

[–]Westernhagen 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Unfortunately, what most boys learn from alpha widow single mothers is "don't be like your father" (i.e., an alpha). Any display of alpha behavior is ruthlessly suppressed, especially because when it comes from the son of the alpha who widowed them, they are bitterly reminded of the alpha they are no longer getting.

Alpha widow single moms turn up the beta-ization of their sons to 11.

[–]BlackCraneStoic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is exactly what's happening to my nephews right now. Met them for the first time last year ages 7 and 16 when my predominantly deadbeat father passed of cancer. I have no relationship with any of my sisters. They're straight bitter bitches really but I couldn't help been feel bad for how soft they're turning out. No responsibility of mine though.

[–]TheFalseKnave 36 points37 points  (2 children)

It's amazing how much success she's had with convincing my now ex best friend and even my brother with her lies and BS.

That's pretty worrying as well. I don't have a brother but I do have a best friend of 20 years, and he would have to do something truly despicable (worse than murder) for the friendship to suffer. Who are these sorts of people who are so easily swayed by the words of a relative stranger that they forget their longer and stronger relationships? smh

[–]SirNickClegg 22 points23 points  (1 child)

She's probably fucking the "ex best friend" or even his brother. No woman could get my relationship with my brother to falter on words alone.

[–]NinjaDingo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nah she's just an expert manipulator and game player. My relationships with those two people were already strained thanks to her, so she didn't need too much help to get them to buy into her rubbish.

I'll note that both of those guys are utter betas with no backbone, and during the course of their relationships have been walked all over.

[–]ianpac 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She has success with your friends and brother because of propaganda. Goebells made it famous. Simply repeat a lie enough times and people will believe.The only way to combat this is to do the same to nullify her propaganda. But this means you would have to devote every spare second of your life to spread your version which as a male you have zero interest in doing. Therefore the woman always wins the propaganda war.

[–]BewareTheOldMan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

...my ex-wife continues to character assassinate me to this day...

I wouldn't be overly concerned about the ex-wife's character assassination as her effort will be essentially rendered ineffective. Assuming you have kids, the ONLY opinion that matters in the long run is that you are an outstanding father and your kids confirm this as fact.

If you put in work as a good father, the kids and everyone else eventually sees the source of the problem. My ex-wife tried to undermine my influence and authority over my children with insults and other foolishness, and I would hard-check her behavior on a regular basis. Family and TRUE friends eventually see the truth as well.

As a result, my kids have zero confusion why their mother and I are no longer married.

The only other peculiar situation is if she is somehow affecting your employment, but most ex-wives are not foolish enough to affect income stream.

[–]Endorsed ContributorThotwrecker 22 points23 points  (0 children)

For women, group consensus becomes reality. it isn't real until the group believes it.

If you dumped her and she internally knows you were just an asshole, that isn't enough. It only becomes real and her story of being the victim only gets validated after it enters the group lexicon as truth.

[–]2muchtequila 15 points16 points  (3 children)

That's one thing I judge people on, how/if they talk about ex's. Unless I'm interacting with your ex, your opinion of them has no effect on me. Trash talking them only makes you both look bad. Stay classy about it or don't bring them up.

[–]CanuckinFL 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I'm 100% with you on this one. I vet totally based on that, no matter how hot. If you're some bimbo who was with a guy anything longer than a year, and have only to say that he was an 'abusive' asshole, I'm not listening. I'm already out the door. It's not a moral judgment, I just know I can't bang someone that stupid.

[–]7a7p 14 points15 points  (0 children)

“So you expect me to believe your ex was a horrible piece of shit and you left him because you’d finally had enough? All this tells me is how fucking stupid you think I am. He was probably a stand up guy and you probably fucked him in some way. I’ve known you too long to play that game.”

Actual conversation I had with an ex-girlfriend. She immediately changed her tone when she realized I wasn’t having it. It was almost like she dropped the act entirely and let me get a peek at the “her” she was trying to hide with that shitty lie.

Remember fellas - being called an asshole is ALWAYS a compliment because it means you come from a position of power. An asshole is basically a strong man who doesnt give women what they want.

[–]NevrEndr 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Nice. I get called in asshole all the time and just got promoted bc I drive results. Funny how that works

[–]Lambdal7 1 points1 points [recovered]

Um no it's not ALWAYS a compliment. In fact it is rarely a compliment, sometimes it really is, but it's not often. Here just a few examples when it's not a compliment

  • Cheat on your gf
  • Don't visit your sick mother
  • Talking about coworkers behind their back
  • Taking credit for someone elses work at work
  • Mocking people in front of others
  • Trying to be a smartass all the time
  • Insulting a girl, because she doesn't want to fuck you

It only is a compliment when you are actually. not an asshole

  • Teasing a girl back that just teased you
  • Having a spine and not being a pushover
  • Dating multiple women and being called an asshole for that

[–]Collegia_Titanica 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Technically right about 40 Billion since that's a bit less than half of all humans who ever lived. Implying that women had always done this since the beginning of human time.

[–]Bucky_Goldstein 45 points46 points  (6 children)

It's pretty funny when chick's start to think the value of their pussy is so sky high that he'll deal with all of her crazy bullshit and demands and just take everything she dishes out.

Nope the fuck out of that situation

[–]soulcatcher357 18 points19 points  (1 child)

In my experience it usually is a red flag of infidelity. it is women's version of abundance mentality mixed with entitlement.

All they ate doing is outing themselves as shitty friends. Easier to identify and cut them out.

[–]ianpac 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Any person who judges you without first hearing your side of the story is no friend. A true friend listens, understands and advises. The actual assholes are the ones who pre-judge. Never associate with such losers.

[–]1Metalageddon 297 points298 points  (25 children)

Been there. Exactly.

When my business took off my income more than quadrupled over 3 months. That was several years ago, now I make more per quarter than most do per year or even two.

That's dread level infinite.

She's desperate to keep you on or beneath her level. It's just the way things work. She doesn't want to be left behind as she knows you've got options everywhere.

At the same time she's excited as fuck because this is the dream. Unlimited support and options, status, and absolutely no responsibility.

It causes a stall-out in the brain. The good ones do absolutely everything in their power to out-do your options. Sex goes up, care goes up, effort goes up, everything becomes the best she can provide. The bad ones focus on the "me" instead of the "others waiting and available". They begin to grab. And their little grabby demanding hands end up cuffed to a cat or three pretty quickly.

Be there for your bro, buy him a copy of the manipulated man, and maybe one of bachelor pad econ. He'll be fine.

[–]GodLikeVelociraptor 121 points122 points  (11 children)

I've been making high six figures to low seven figures for at least a decade.

People get weird around large amounts of money. There's little you can do to predict who someone will respond, and not just women and not just family.

And it's not like you can go online and watch a youtube video on how to act rich and get away with it. If you advertise your wealth all sorts of "friends" come out of the woodwork. Fail to advertise it enough and no one takes you seriously until after the fact (yes, we really can afford to the chartered jet to Monaco.)

I've had girlfriends (who didn't last long) use me as an ATM without so much as a passing thought. Their HB9.999 beauty to my very average 6ish allowed me to tolerate it some but it's not so much the money as it is the objectification. I get it now when women complain of being objectified for sex. People are just as likely to objectify for money given the chance.

My current girlfriend simply doesn't comprehend wealth and what it can do. It's funny in many respects but is also the reason I keep her around. She insists on paying for things which is cute, and still gets happy and excited when I give her a $10 candle as a gift.

[–]Redpiller77 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Or maybe she is too intelligent and only makes you think that she doesn't understand so you keep her around. I doubt it, but it would be funny.

[–]GodLikeVelociraptor 15 points16 points  (1 child)

She is quite intelligent so I wouldn't put it past her. The charade seems mutually beneficial which is really all that matters.

[–]destraht 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I've had a few girlfriends in Ukraine who wouldn't let me spend $5 on them and probably ten one hour one-time dates where I wasn't allowed to spend $2 on them. It actually became rather irritating because they didn't have any money at all and so we couldn't do much. Then there was the well known completely soaking type and its amazing what they can get into if you don't pay attention when they are speaking to the waiter. Racking up $8 on hot cocoa in fifteen minutes in Ukraine is quite an achievement.

[–]2CHAD_J_THUNDERCOCK 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This guy might come close, if it interests you:


And wallstreetplayboys have some stuff on Stealth Wealth too that you might find relevant. And it includes dealing with women.

And if you don't mind me asking, as I can never resist finding routes/paths: what path did you take to make your money in the tech industry, and how can people 20 years behind you now position themselves to maximise their chances of replicating your success?

Women have an acute sense of what their man is worth and if other women are interested in them. If it gets too high THEY WILL SABOTAGE to bring you back within their range.

[–]BertranThePharmacist 129 points130 points  (11 children)

True story.

When I started exercising, my wife started buying and making some high-carbohydrates food like pizza, cakes etc. She was surprised how I can refuse to eat any crumb from such food.

[–]FlamingAmmosexual 102 points103 points  (3 children)

That happened to my father's co-worker. He was massively overweight. He lost something like 150-200 pounds, had the surgery to remove the extra skin, and all that.

His wife wasn't as big as him but still a big girl. He's an older gentlemen so he didn't leave her or anything but everybody was impressed with what he did and congratulating him.

He got all that weight back. I never got the full story but apparently his wife started making home cooked meals daily of very unhealthy foods and would throw a bitch fit that he wasn't eating them. He'd eat what she made to appease her and destroyed all that hard work he did.

[–]Hsnbrg501 21 points22 points  (0 children)

My LTR literally tried to force a piece of chocolate into my mouth one day, presumably because I'm eating better and working out, and she frequently says she's going to do the same. So, because she had recently quit cigarretes, I took my lit cigarette and pushed the filter up to her lips. That shit stopped real quick.

[–]SlothOnRoids 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Lol, same thing happened to me, except I've already been excersizing for quite some time, bodyfat was still too high for me so I told her I wanted her to buy clean foods like chicken breast and brown rice instead of all this processed shit she usually gets, yet she still continued to buy the unhealthy shit, I guess in hopes I wouldn't look better. You would think women would want their men to to keep improving but they rather keep you where you're at so there's not more competition.

[–]1cappadocianhawk 54 points55 points  (1 child)

They want you to keep improving but only for them. And never more than what they can handle. When you start to pull ahead they panic. Some of them start improving themselves to keep up with their new competition but most are lazy and try to put you down.

[–]pisspoordecisions 32 points33 points  (0 children)

It’s true. My LTR straight up tells me she works out all the time to stay hot and keep fit because of how often I work out. No complaints here

[–]casemodsalt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And then they will still flirt and cheat with other guys.

They have to manipulate a nest. A secure guy. Because they are just horrible people and nobody sane would want them

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Same here except I was powerlifting instead of "exercising". I ate all that shit and turned into a jacked and strong as shit 270lb monster (compared to 98% of the population, at least). Now I get looks everywhere I go from everyone.

Fucking love dirty bulking.

[–]ThatOneDrunkUncle 28 points29 points  (10 children)

Is this why my LTR insists on getting a gym membership at my new gym, despite the fact that she never set foot in one before our relationship?

[–]OracleofFl 81 points82 points  (7 children)

I think this is a healthy response from her. Her response to you increasing your SMV is that she wants to increase her's too.

[–]1cappadocianhawk 29 points30 points  (6 children)

Well also she can keep an eye on him so he doesn't get friendly with any of the hotter gym chicks.

[–]pisspoordecisions 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Eh. I mean honestly who actually wastes their time with that? I don’t talk to anyone at the gym, I’d rather put my head down and grind through a workout.

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

Her hamster couldn't possibly understand that.

[–]donkey_democrat 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yeah but that increases dread and he can use plausible deniability to counter.

[–]truedemocracy3 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Actually makes more sense. Wants to work out together instead of sending you there alone. Key word on my post though was 'too high'. Just dont get too shredded ;)

Happened to me too with a plate. I take her and make her lift actual weights with me instead of just running treadmill the whole time. I like women who improve themselves for me.

[–]PurpleDrank88 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's how you know you're dating a crazy chick. Get rid of that girl immediately. The not insane girl will be generally happy about you increasing your smv (although yes she will be insecure, but that's just a bit of dread a hamstering and isn't bad as long as it doesn't cause her to be crazy)

[–]riot2100 49 points50 points  (2 children)

In a sense, she was hardwired... to self destruct!

[–]1atticusfinch1973 177 points178 points  (28 children)

Good for him for not falling into the trap. And as for his "friends" in five years he will be living a life they would only dream of as they head home to their wives who aren't giving them sex, two kids and their lovely suburban home while they work to pay off their car loans.

Focusing on the things that are important now will allow you to live an amazing life you actually want five years from now. Just have to put in the work.

[–]TheRealJesusChristus 40 points41 points  (27 children)

Dont forget that many people that suddenly have much much money dont know how to use it wisely and end up lonely without an amazing life and all that. Even if you say „no im dofferent“. You dont know. It could be even you. Hell, even me (I am very sure of me being different).

[–]purduered 25 points26 points  (6 children)

This is definitely true. One of the big mistakes a lot of people make is to do exactly the opposite of what OP's friend did here. They spoil their significant other and start living lavishly. Allocating a lot of their capital to status items and living in a way that assumes their successful cash flow will continue. I mean it was quite a brief story, but it seems OP's friend is disciplined and is still very much focused on wealth accumulation.

[–]askmrcia 20 points21 points  (5 children)

There was a post I remember on personal finance years ago that went until details how alot of doctors are in financial trouble. It went into the fact that they were basically going through their 20s not making much to making close to $200k in their 30s.

And those people just didn't know how to handle making that much money as they were buying high-end houses and cars while paying off their loans.

It was an interesting article and it kind of caught me off surprise because I was thinking how can these people be so smart yet still manage to screw up their finances.

[–]marplaneit 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Hey I'm finishing medical school in a year I'll tell you how it really is!.

We graduate at 26 yo old with 250k in debt. Then we spend another 4 years on residency making 50-60k a year, that between paying student loans and renting, you get to save nothing. Then suddenly from being a poor bastard through all your 20's. You start making 250k++ (If you don't mind moving, you can start with a salary of 300-350k++ with some type of specialties, hell even 400k for osteo). So you have a 30 yo old who is know making 300k pre taxes. He thinks he is a millionaire and start buying shit, 80k car, new clothes, travelling to europe in long weekend, most of the time they decide they want a family so a house + wife and kids. And now you have a 350k salary, probably 220k after taxes. You pay student loans, your 1 million dollars house mortage, your wife insane spending habits because her wife is a doctor and think she is a millonaire. You may be lucky if you can save after everything, 1-2k usd, or maybe nothing. Now you live paycheck to paycheck because you are paying more than 10k in debt each month.

Now doctors who marry other doctors, or just stay single, if you are not money stupid and a little entreprenourish you start your own practice, and by the time you are in your mid 30s you are putting out 1mill. I know a guy with a practice he reinvested almost all his money in cranking out 2mill a year by the time he was in his late 30's.

[–]askmrcia 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes you pretty much hit the nail on the head and summed up that article.

The wife and kids also add to it. It's just crazy to think people can be making so much money but still be living paycheck to paycheck.

Thanks for the insight

[–]HisHolyShitness 27 points28 points  (8 children)

Money doesn't make you happy. But it also doesn't make you unhappy. It has it's undeniable perks to live without financial worries.

[–]PigFeetSammich 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Money is the the grease that makes the gears of life turn more easily. Grease however will not fix a broken engine or turn your tercel into a Ferrari.

[–]halfback910 30 points31 points  (6 children)

I like the people who say money doesn't mean you don't have problems.

"More money, more problems!"

No. More money, better problems. Same amount of problems (because of the hedonistic treadmill, we'll always find problems to fix), but better problems.

Here we are on Reddit talking about how to improve society, promote gender equality, get laid, etc. Eight hundred years ago we would work fourteen hours shoveling pig shit and harvesting grain, HOPEFULLY have time to have sex and pop out some kids, collapse next to a wife we probably didn't pick in a house we probably didn't own and pray that we die soon.

Do we still have problems? Of course. But they're undeniably better problems.

[–]PatsFever 13 points14 points  (10 children)

I'd love to see a post on this, it is a good topic that a very well paying job doesn't mean everything just falls into place.

EDIT: Like a guide to, so you got the six figure job with huge growth opportunity and career overall sorted out in mid 20's, now what. That'd be awesome, maybe there's value in personal trainer, nice car, etc that I'd love to hear people's perspectives on how to use their success and resources to further the journey and make the journey more efficient.

[–]marplaneit 4 points5 points  (6 children)

If I were in my mid 20's earning 6 figures... I would go through 2 options and see whats fits best:

1) Save money for 3-5 years and start a business in your early 30's- late 20's. 2) Save money 1-2 years, quit your job and go travelling around the world for at least one year.

Depend on how hard is to get a job on your career (Ie I'm going finishing med school in a year and a half, getting a career once fully graduated and certificated is quite easy) I would pick one. Is it easy? Go for travelling the world. Is it hard? Go for the business and travel later.

[–]read_if_gay_ 5 points6 points  (4 children)

There's also 3) work and save money until you can retire, which should take somewhere between 5 and 10 years if you're happy with a modest yearly budget.

[–]WISE_TURD 36 points37 points  (3 children)

For him turning into a beta: it was like putting a frog in room temp water then heating up slowly.

For her turning into a psycho: it was like throwing the frog into boiling water.

Case in point: she should have stuck with what worked. She let her short greed and lack of patience sabotage her game.

I'm wondering if/when there's sub that teaches gold digging cunts how to play the game. Really, trp in the wrong hands could show women how to betacuck rich pussies. Thankfully the majority of women don't give a shit about learning new things or bettering themselves, which paradoxically is why they want a rich beta in the first place.

[–]Swanksterino 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Women know instinctively how to betacuck rich pussies. It is how natural wealth distribution happens.

[–]WISE_TURD 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I agree that there are more women who are "naturals" (in truth it's probably more about how you were raised) when compared to men. It other words, they understand how to exploit societal norms to achieve their biological imperative.

However, when you're think about the best pickup artists, they are the "naturals" who also learn about game and put in the work. Same for any other profession or trade really. Not to say that women don't subconsciously practice their trade, but men typically become more obsessive and scientific about their interests in general.

Actually, I've been trying to get around to reading "why men love bitches" (the number one ranked dating book for women on amazon) to see what they preach. Really hope someone posts a review on trp to save everyone us all the time.

[–]WhorehouseVet 131 points132 points  (5 children)

It's called an "unjustified sense of entitlement".

She legitimately believes that she's responsible for your friend's financial success, thus in her mind, she felt she deserves his money, thus her idea of traveling the word in his dime. When that didn't pan out, she was infuriated because all his success depended on her.

"How dare he doesn't spend money on me that I helped him make?"

[–]Augustuscrassus 70 points71 points  (1 child)

This reminds me of my current roommates girlfriend. Her boyfriend (my roommate) is a genius. I'd say >150IQ. Because she is dating him, she too must be smart.

She isn't.

unjustified sense of entitlement

They have a vagina that produces life so in some sense justified; traditionally women knew that wasn't enough to get and keep a man. You had to offer a lot more as a women in the past. Not anymore.

[–]Banned-in-Boston 1 points1 points [recovered]

To help your friend from backsliding, give him an intro to TRP. Perhaps one of the books, Manipulated Man, comes to mind.

[–][deleted] 43 points44 points  (4 children)

Yea. Wouldn’t be surprised if het met another girl like her and thought she was the one because she treats him so well. But she’d never have been with him if it wasnt for him becoming rich/successful. And then comes the divorce

[–]truedemocracy3 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Definitely dip the toes in, but dont link the sub as it might be too much for someone who didnt find it on his own accord.

Nevertheless he needs this type of information NOW as a single and successful man more than ever before. Women will be coming at him nonstop

[–]FlyingSexistPig 62 points63 points  (3 children)

He was rich, which meant they were rich, which meant she was rich. Too rich to be hanging out with a loser like him who didn't ever treat her in the manner to which she'd like to be accustomed to.

He'll trade up to a much nicer newer model, and then she'll really lose her shit. Wait for the false rape allegations next!

[–]Yuri_TxM 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I also believe that's where she got messed up. At the same time she was rich, she knew she was not.

[–]brinkleybuzz 117 points118 points  (5 children)

Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar.

No, she did what the average woman would do if she found out the guy she was banging was rich and she wasn't getting her "fair share". They'll never admit it, but sex is transactional for women. They defintely expect a return on their investment.

Good thing your buddy wasn't married to her.

[–]bloodshot_eyes 25 points26 points  (2 children)

The cost of sex isn't a flat rate, its a percentage.

[–]randarrow 47 points48 points  (0 children)

He should start recording everything. She's cooked the golden goose, she's not going to calm down for years. There doesn't seem to be much of a difference between attitude and rape accusations. He also needs to start being more proactive about fixing his friendships and deciding who his real friends are and are not.

Had a couple of friendships turn sour a year ago, no big blowup I just started avoiding someone, and others followed. One woman is now terrified of me, the whole, she interprets her insecurity as disgust, fear, or rage thing. Willing to bet the story is fictional karma farming, but if real he needs to be concerned she is going to do more than turn his friends against him.

[–]IShavedMyNutsForThis 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar

No, most women would probably do exactly what this one did, or some variation of it. Really, most people probably would. Money changes the people around a person more than the person itself. Everyone is looking to get something for free, and they often think it's easiest to get it from someone you know and can manipulate.

[–]2chazthundergut 17 points18 points  (1 child)

She definitely didn't think it through. She thought his frame was weaker than it actually was (based on how much of a beta he was), and she didn't realize her mistake until it was too late. I gfuarantee you if she could go back in time she would replace all that shitty behavior with blowjobs until after the wedding/ pregnancy. Then it would all come back out.

Good for him.

[–]truedemocracy3 34 points35 points  (15 children)

In a LTR you will often, not always, see major SMV swings between you and your partner. Maybe you lose a job, maybe she gains weight, maybe one of you inherent a lot of money, etc. I'd say entrepreneurial success is rarer- but definitely falls into that line.

Why did she act the way she did? Simple - she is insecure in her value as his SMV grew several numbers above hers. I had something similar happen to me in a previous relationship where my then gf was struggling and unemployed and she would always ask what I was doing, get mad if I was at a work lunch with women, look at Uber addresses on my phone and think I was cheating etc.

If you are with a high intelligence women usually they will treat you more like a king. These are the women who have strong interests on their own - could be a doctor or work in research, maybe have their own business themselves. Care less about money and more about being brainy. However, I would guess this is USUALLY the exception. And more often then not they will treat YOUR new money as THEIRS.

If any of the above shit tests happen to you then simply say 'you're paranoid', dont change behavior, and most of all hold frame as she cries and pouts until she eventually recognizes she is being a psycho (and if you hold frame she will) and come around to you

[–]ratthing 17 points18 points  (13 children)

If you are with a high intelligence women usually they will treat you more like a king.

Very true. My wife (a redpilled wife with a PhD) has been with me as my income has increased by an exponent since we've been together. She never pulled anything like this, and has done everything in her power to keep me happy.

[–]truedemocracy3 12 points13 points  (12 children)

And I'm guessing she isnt very materialistic. Dont get me wrong - if you are doing well financially it's ok to have nicer than average things. But the girls I know with who fit that bill would never be upset over a several hundred dollar watch, and would actually prefer things like a fun adventurous trip instead

[–]ratthing 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Exactly. She is very non-materialistic. For example, we could be living in a very expensive and large home, but she preferred us to buy a small house in a middle class neighborhood, so we could pay it off in 10 years. In 2016 I bought her a new minivan and she was absolutely floored that I had "wasted" money on a NEW vehicle, when we usually buy used.

[–]truedemocracy3 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Nothing is more attractive than a financially responsible woman lol know so many relationships where it's the man doing everything to pay for a womans lifestyle and it's so sad to see

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

"Why did she act the way she did? Simple - she is insecure in her value as his SMV grew several numbers above hers..."

His RMV increased, not SMV. But otherwise the analysis is very astute.

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (2 children)

There is actually a reason behind her actions:

You said they'd been dating for about 4 years. To her that likley made her feel she was in a secure relationship. She was giving her part and he was giving his. Then, she gained additional information; i.e., he had a lot more resources he could commit to her but was not. That scared her and made her rethink the stability of their relationship and his commitment.

A male correlary goes: we're together and sex is a huge part of our relationship, so we should be having frequent sex, good sex and kinky sex. Then, after several years of this you one day find out--wholly shit she's done all sorts of things with other men that she refuses to do with me! You aren't going to care why she hasn't done those things with you or how she truly feels about you, or at least says she feels about you, you and your relationship are going to feel inferior to her past escapades and ruin your whole relationship despite how you thought about it immediately before you learned that info.

It's the same for her. They were in a relationship, she felt entitled to his resources, saw he could give much more than he was, he refused all suggestions to up his commitment/provisioning, she could reach no other conclussion than that he wasn't commited. His not giving resources as part of the relationship is like her not giving sex. She acted out drastictly.

[–]10211799107 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Nobody seems to be asking the question why the hell did your buddy tell her how much he was making to begin with?

Dated a girl for almost 4yrs, she never knew my income. Keep your mouth shut about your finances fellas

[–]alxjones 19 points20 points  (1 child)

classy rule #1 : don't speak of finances

[–]10211799107 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apart from the behaviours etc that allowed her to go off the rails like this, nr one mistake was divulging this info.

[–]1raceAround126 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I had this exact situation. I was in a crap career trap, didn't make much money and was fat as all hell.

She was abusive and frankly nearly bipolar. I spent two years rebuilding myself into something new.

About 4 years later after we've both moved on, split etc, I've changed completely. I have a very decent salary for my age, two sources of income and in a position whereby I have actual fans of my music and all the rest of it. Women are no problem for me to get should I want to.

No end of "stories" are coming out about me since she heard I'm doing well. As far as I know she's pregnant after a one night stand from a former mutual friend who instantly took her side when we broke up painting me up to be the biggest asshole ever. He occasionally does temp work in factories.

[–]GenericBadGuyNumber3 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Sounds like a smart guy on multiple levels.

[–]Docbear64 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar, yet she basically did the opposite.

No they wouldn't and that's why the average woman doesn't deserve to be taken seriously right now as anything beyond a plate. She got insecure so instead of making sure that she was such a good fuck and such a sweet kind angel that he wouldn't htink to replace her ( because it sounds like he wasn't going to before she lost her mind ) she tripled down and went Psycho bitch in an attempt to eliminate his options and ensure that no other woman had even a mild chance to latch onto her meal ticket.

Women have basically lost any powers of seduction and attraction that women of the past possessed besides knowing how to dress in skimpy clothes, apply make up, and, fuck everything else is left up to the guy to figure out .... this bitch couldn't even fuck him properly to get what she wanted. Stupid as fuck.

[–]BigMawsmidget 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I'm not too sure, but it sounds like she became self-conscious about his SMV possibly increasing. Reading your friend side of the story he was busy or texting and to girls that's a threat even though for him it was just business.

Regardless AWALT

[–]Augustuscrassus 16 points17 points  (1 child)

"So now a lot of people think he's an asshole"

She did him a favor. Instead of the niceguy/provider he will be seen as the asshole who wouldn't commit. Girls and betas don't even try to boost your SMV but they end up doing it unconsciously.

Reminds me of this guy who I played soccer with who told a few girls at a party how they should "be careful" and "he's not very nice." He ended up getting me laid.

[–]ratthing 10 points11 points  (1 child)

One HUGE area right now is anything having to do with business applications for data analytics and AI. You need to work hard to crack into a particular niche area but once you do that and build trust with a few key clients, the money is very, very good. I guess that's the same for getting into any business.

[–]mubee94 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Agreed. I am taking machine learning courses these days. I am already doing CS major. AI expert is the job of the future. Machine learning, deep learning, data analysts and neural networking are some fields of it

[–]p_and_q 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's not important as you might think. If you're smart and willing to put the work in, making good can be easy. Opportunity is all over the place. There's always money to be made in asset trading. The problem is that it takes a ton of time, work, and dedication. That means every single spare minute has to go into this work. If you don't love what you are doing to make this money, then it becomes a truly grueling process that many would rather trade for a reliable 9-5 job with benefits and vacation time. <br/> Plus a bit of luck is essential. Never underestimate the power of chance.

[–]BostonM2 13 points14 points  (1 child)

It comes and goes too so there is that other side to the story as well. I had a buddy with a towing company that because of change in legislation grew 500% in one year and kept going for 3 more years at that rate because he now got first dibs on all the state contracts.

But then in a few years, after he bought two houses, the cars..etc..etc. he got a back injury and one of his partners screwed him over.

Now he's a drunk captain and close to being bankrupt.

[–]Pilliam66 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That's his own fault for splashing out without thinking about the future. You can't just assume your income will remain the same

[–]TravelGameAddict 5 points6 points  (4 children)

[–]Htowngetdown 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm sure you're doing plenty of things wrong. But so is everyone else. What matters is that you're trying. I'm too scared to leave the security of the 9-5 yet. Good luck out there.

[–]istp4ever 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm posting on a throwaway account but it's really about two things 1) getting into something you love doing and 2) something that solves a market need

I made 300k in several months promoting products related to relationships/psychology (i wont go too specific, but it was affiliate marketing related and i used FB ads)

I couldn't replicate the process because I was exploiting loopholes within FB's system that soon were closed.

With that money I tried to go into SEO because it was where "everyone was making money."

I fucking hated it. I got it up and running but the business was making jack shit and I had no motivation to work.

Right now I'm getting back into the area that originally made me a ton of money. I'm not making money yet but I'm 100% confident it'll be successful, based on previous experiences, data, and how competitors are doing (though how successful my business will be the big question. it could just make $500 a year or $500k a year, we will see)

So yeah, biggest lesson I can give anyone is do what you love.

Having that passion is what allows you to work 12+ hour days and actually enjoy it and makes you want to be the best in your field, that passion also gives you a huge creative advantage in that you have more fun thinking about different angles and strategies to implement.

And it makes sense. You can't just have people going into any industry that makes money. For example, data analytics is big according to the other poster, and software engineering is also a huge field, but it's not like you can have anyone just look at those fields and think to themselves "oh those make a lot of money? i'm gonna go into it, work hard, and make a lot of money too!" It's not that simple, you need to have an actual talent and passion in these areas.

Otherwise, everyone would be a computer scientist or data analytics guy and no one would be a restaurant owner, salon owner, construction company owner, owning a dentistry, etc.

It's funny, it's like people are destined to go into certain occupations. It's the only way the human race can thrive, you need variety. It's a good thing that most people are find programming/data analytics very difficult (including myself) otherwise everyone would go into those fields, thereby leaving no other occupations left or drastically driving down the wages of people scrambling to enter those fields.

tldr: You need to find what drives you (which also makes money) and become the best at it.

Also, having a business project to work on is the best thing you can do for yourself. When your whole life is going to shit, maybe your girl cheated on you, you're not having the best luck with your career, or your friends ditched you, your business will always be there, it's 100% loyal to you, it doesn't care if you take a break from it or flirt with other business ideas and then come back to it, and it will give you a passion/drive that no friend/girl/hobby can give you.

Owning a business aka making money doing what you love is the secret to life. That's something a 60+ year old business owner told me, and you can't get any closer to the truth than that.

[–]dbev9044 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Some people legit can’t have money. It’s something about the lack of confidence that someone else still needs your or not.

Sadly, this is first hand experience. From her side. I’ve been trying to fix it ever since. That being said, fuck her for fucking up a good guys name. That’s WICKED shitty.

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

What kind of business is it?

[–]FrgElder 1 points1 points [recovered]

If she hadn't altered her behavior, they'd most definitely still be together right now. Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar, yet she basically did the opposite. I don't understand her thought process, it's like the thought of being rich short-circuited her brain.

It's entirely because of her mindset and history with him. A normal woman who is meeting this guy for the first time feels the need to impress him and qualify themselves for his attention/affection/money.

But she's different, she feels entitled to a piece of his newfound success because she was with him before he was rich. Her investment has matured and she's looking to cash in for all her "hard work".

You see this all the time with rich/famous men. Arnold's ex-wife, Tiger Woods ex-wife, there's tons of examples. Hell, look at Elon Musk's first wife; the woman thinks she should get millions of dollars because Musk used her as a "starter wife". A man that is so talented he has made billions by revolutionizing the transportation and energy industries and is looking to tackle space exploration and on the forefront of AI technology. What has she done to deserve half his money? Well she put his dick inside her and then looked after a few kids for a while.

These women don't think they're getting away with scamming their comparatively much more talented and valuable ex husbands through abuse of a broken court system. They legitimately feel they earned that money and are entitled to it. Personally I really don't see how a glorified babysitter could ever think they deserve access to millions of dollars just because they were married to someone super successful, but the hamster is going to spin and spin. It's a good reminder that a woman's worldview has absolutely nothing to do with reality, and everything to do with feels.

[–]bonekeeper 6 points7 points  (0 children)

glorified babysitter

that pretty much sums it up. I mean, if a guy is working and paying for a household all by himself so the wife can stay at home and watch the kids, then after the divorce he still has to "compensate" her for her not having a job while taking care of the kids, it's like he's paying twice for her to watch her own kids (often every woman's dream job anyway). He paid for it once when he had to support the household all by himself, then again when he had to pay alimony because hey, she wasn't working.

My ex-wife did something similar. It wasn't so much when I started to make money, it was after I got accepted to a good program in grad school. She didn't like my prospects improving. She did the same thing when I was working out a lot. She said something to me once along the lines of who you trying to be, Hercules? Yeah basically. I was getting more female attention and not even noticing it until she started to point it out. I was just doing it for my own Improvement not to get strange. Thanks for the tip bitch.

''that didn't stop her from talking about marriage and trying to guilt him into proposing soon'' Imagine saying yes to that. Fuck.

She thought she had him in leash turns out he's the smarter kind of easygoing.

Ha-she fucked herself. What an idiot.

Men and women alike have a tendency to allow vice to harm and destroy everything they once loved

  • Stop having sex and being a mean spirited controlling person.

  • Demand to lock him down with marriage.

Hmm. I wonder why he didn't choose to shackle himself to her and enter a deal where she can walk away with half his shit? This guy must be crazy to pass up on such a great deal! /s

That bitch not happy with a 500$ watch. Man ill be soooo happy with a 2 dollar watch hahaha

[–]Hamilton950B 6 points7 points  (0 children)

$500. But yeah, if you added up every watch I've ever owned it wouldn't be that much.

Thank God she snapped now and not in 5 years when they're settled down and maybe married . Could have gotten nasty for his business and wallet

You see that is total feminism. It makes them believe that they are entitled to receive because they are women. It is a meta program thst runs unconsciously, and it tells them to screw the man (men if possible). There are in fact multiples meta programs already present in women, one being a dedicated wife, and another being a desperate whore/bitch. Feminism is about triggering the second one. The only solution to this won't fit all men, but we have to leave our own instincts and individualistic behaviours to unite and act as one. We, all of us, have to say no. We have yo get involved in politics, in companies, wherever we can, and say no. Send back women to where they fit: family, and support functions in the society. Old Russian women used to go to Siberia with their husband, modern ones behave 90% of the time like your story. Makes you think.

She seems to be extremely entitled and is usually used to getting everything she wants. What probably what pissed her off was when your friend wasn't going to buy her the ridiculous shit she was begging for. So she threw bitchfits like she normally did so she would get what she wanted and he would comply since you said he's usually easy-going. I think it was when his income expedited that he was seeing right through her.

Lucky guy.

All her hot friends are going to hang him one after another.

I love power and the free marketing that drives getting more of it.

[–]boniggy 6 points7 points  (2 children)

She sounds like a narcissist

[–]sleepyweaselisawake 17 points18 points  (1 child)

What woman isn't a narcissist?

[–]HappyBoostMan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you are a rich man do not marry.

[–]bobbydreddits 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's cool she's going around and telling people that he's to good for her now because it sounds like he is.

[–]drkinferno72 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She feels entitled to his, I mean ‘our’ money XD

[–]IWillSayCrassStuff 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Most girls would start cooking him 5-star meals and fucking him like a pornstar, yet she basically did the opposite.

That would be fucked up too. You wouldn't want that person in your life either. Someone's worth shouldn't come from their income no matter their sex.

[–]Bing_Bang_Bam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He got lucky and dodged a fuckin bullet. If he was married she would have taken it all and made him pay alimony for the rest of his life.

Fuck relationships, fuck the cucked institution of marriage.

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

She was probably insecure because rich guys can upgrade partners easily, like women.

Some people in general turn really ugly when they find out you're doing well, man. A lot of your best friends and family start resenting you for what they experience as you outgrowing them.

[–]Cryptomineand69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He’s lucky he’s just being called an asshole and not a “he hit me” or “he raped me”

[–]washington_breadstix 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The more stories like this I read, the more I think my goal in life should be for people to think I'm an asshole.

[–]Gman777 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So she basically realised he was likely a whole lot more attractive of a catch to other girls, and did everything she could to beat him down to her level, ensuring other females would be put off/ he had less chance to find other girls.

Lucky he got out when he did.

[–]michasv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

this strong personaliy that you mentioned is a clear sign to extremely low self-esteem worth - so basically she's controlling and not strong. she is controlling because if she loses control then she feels threatened. she's weak as fuck for all material things that can make her feel worthwhile. those types of girls always get into relationships with beta males because otherwise they feel inferior because they have to have security. betas provide this security because they worship her. when he became rich she became needy for his money not for him. because now he holds her "worth" so he has the control and she's a control freak so she became weak as fuck and he became strong because he could feel her neediness and it's annoying.

hypergamy can be analyzed in terms of simple psychology of self esteem. the more a person has low self esteem the more shallow he becomes and the more he craves material things and achievements to feel good about himself because he sees no value in just being a human being so this is what hypergamy is all about. guys can be hypergamous too. if a low self esteem beta would get billions of dollars suddenly and posses all the pussy that he can get then he will be highly hypergamous too. there's this sentence about power that if you give power to a weak person then he loses his head and becomes narcissistic. it works exactly like this. so basically she just wasen't thinking with her head, she became anxious of loosing the loot and that is the reason she acted like a stupid whore instead of using her logic and make him feel good and make him want to marrie her and then take his money.

the exact same thing happens to a beta guy who gets attention from a super hot girl. he starts to get obssessive. why? because he sees her beauty as his "worth". he doesn't even care about her as a human being, he cares about the compliment to his ego that. that if a hot girl like her is with him then he feels good about himself so now she has his worth in her hands so of course he becomes her bitch. the same thing happens with weak girls. why would a strong person be so controlling?

Money doesnt change you. it changes the people around you.

[–]IdoNtEvEnWaTz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right on the tails of the recent post on why women betafy their men.

She was trying to lock him down but it just won't work in this case as she was suddenly btfo of her league.
