Warning, extreme hamstering ahead.

New link because redditlog is kill

It's amazing how, if you read her post, she completely flips the script and blames him for not telling her anything. Even though she left him because he "lacked career/life ambition", it's his fault for not revealing his wealth.

Some gems:

I have Facebook and am on it every day, usually when work is slow.

Work is slow every day? I wonder what this woman does for a living? Probably HR or some other liberal arts degree related job.

Lately my newsfeed has been filled with my peers getting married, buying houses, having babies, and other various accolades. I can't help but feel jealous by this; it seems like everyone but me is making significant gains in their lives and relationships.

Accolades. Gains. It's almost as if she's viewing this as a videogame and wants the high score.

Three weeks ago, after seeing a girl I knew from high school buy her 3rd property with her husband, it felt like my relationship with Will was juvenile and had no future.

Oh, the joys of social media. Apparently because all her friends are doing it, she decided she had to do it too! Apparently her boyfriend should be judged against her friends' boyfriends / husbands! Could you imagine how that would go over if it was the other way around. I can imagine some Jizzabel cat lady now:

"But honey, Jack's girlfriend blows him every morning." HOW DARE THIS SHITLORD COMPARE HER TO ANOTHER WOMAN? WOMAN ARE NOT JUST INTERCHANGABLE SEX OBJECTS...

after he served me potato soup for dinner and was torrenting a documentary for us to watch later

She says that to make him sound cheap, but if the dude can cook, has money, and knows how to save it instead of throwing it away and living in a perpetual cycle of credit card debt like so many Americans.

When I finished talking, he said "fine by me" and asked me to leave. I went to hug him on my way out, instead he just guided me out the door and slammed it shut behind him.

I haven't heard a fucking word from Will, even after texting him multiple times and calling him once.

Dude realizes she's not the one for him, makes a clean break. Respect to him.

To this, one friend chuckled to himself and walked away. I asked the other friend WTF

Sounds like Will's dealt a few gold diggers in his time.

If a man with disposable income meets a woman he likes, doesn't he want to treat her?

And that is an example of how widespread BP mentality has become in our world. We are to be seen as nothing more than walking wallets.

Surprisingly, the commentators rip her to shreds.

All of the "I want motivated men" talk is basically just hamster for "I want someone who can earn money for me". Women will sometimes settle short term on someone who isn't currently wealthy as long as they have prospect of becoming wealthy long term. Even if he is currently a bum you can bet if they knew he'd be in a 5 figure job in 5 years time women would be lining up.

Agreed, but no one should expect to be taken seriously if they live in a first-world country and brag about/announce that they're making a 5 figure job. I mean, yes, making $99,999/year is impressive, but most 5 figure earners aren't in that part of the stratosphere.

LOL! Please tell me this is a troll. How delusional can this bitch be? She proved the exact opposite of that!

He could've said something, ANYTHING during our break up when I was explaining my doubts about our relationship. Instead he said nothing, and now he refuses to talk to me. It makes absolutely no sense.

Why would he? You just outed yourself as a gold digger. What is he going to say? "Please stay with me, you're wrong, I'm filthy rich!"

She backed off but then hamstered that I must want to leave her for someone that's like my cousin because "you two get along so well."

Bitch accused me of cheating for years. I never did, true to my word I was faithful to her even though I had every reason to not be. When I finally sent her packing the truth came out, she confessed to an affair.

I don't get the gold-digger thing... I hate to say it but she seems right to me, if she was just after money why would she date a poor guy for 10 months?

She wanted someone with some ambition, which he didn't seem to have.

9 upvotesbodmon5 years ago

Ambition = future earning potential

5 upvotesSkiffbug5 years ago

Why do y ou think she was after someone with ambition? For the bucks, right?

Otherwise, if he kept his easy-going life and they never felt any financial hiccup, what is the downside?

Career ambition only serves 2 purposes:

a) to prove to yourself that you can make it in the corporate world, and

b) to make money to live a comfortable and relatively care-free life.

If you already have b), what's the point of killing youself in the office, if you don't have the drive to? The man does what he likes, and I didn't hear her complain that she doesn't like the type of life he lived. I read her complaining about the future (of the money she wanted to get her hands on).

3 upvoteskragshot5 years ago

She was happy until the "hamster wheel" started turning.

When she was kicking it with him and wasn't worrying about the money and other people's expectations, they were having the time of their lives. But she started buying into that "bigger, better deal" bullshit that so many women get into. They see other women getting bigger, better things and then get jealous of those other women.

It never fails and it is the same thing with a lot of women but it manifests in different ways. The most common way that the "BBD" shows up is when a guy starts a LTR. You could have been in the worst dry spell of your life where women don't even want to serve you at McDonalds. But the moment you start seeing a woman on the regular, suddenly you have all kinds of women who didn't give you the time of day when you were single, suddenly checking you out and throwing the "P" at you.

It's because they see that this one woman has latched on to you, so they want to find out what's so special about you that they have missed out on. They realize that one woman has found out that you might suddenly be the "bigger, better deal" and want to find out why that is.

It's literally the Aesop Fable about the dog, the bone, and the pond. She had a good man, but looked at another woman who she thought had a bigger, better deal, so she started barking about how she wanted what the other woman had and dropped her proverbial bone in the pond, losing it.

Yes.

She wants a plow horse. She doesn't give a fuck about him.

76 upvotesRedPill1155 years ago

Surprisingly, the commentators rip her to shreds.

She violated the golden rule of gold digger club - you never talk about gold digger club.

I think that's why she's being attacked. Had she phrased it as vague "feelings" without being obvious that it was actually money, she would have gotten support despite it actually being the same story about money.

That being said, women in general also care a lot less about money than they used to. It's easier for women to critisize other women because they don't care as much. All of the players I know - ALL of them - are either poor or have money but live like they're poor. Guys with jobs who aren't as entertaining aren't getting to be players. (Not saying it's that way everywhere).

3 upvoteshumankin5 years ago

Seems to be about scarcity of positive attributes. BB is so common that it doesn't do shit to attract pre-wall women. How effective is AF in poor countries? I hear stories of American and European men marrying foreign women way above their native SMV. Those women could be with much more alpha men.

This has no effect on how men need to act but it could be that the specific sexual strategies used in TRP are really only applicable in the Western world even if the core insights are universally applicable e.g. hypergamy.

6 upvotesRedPill1155 years ago

"alpha" is a term that is subjective to your environment. I don't think foreign women are looking for nearly as much sociopathic behavior as american girls are in order to rank highly on their alpha scale.

1 upvotesHS-Thompson5 years ago

Being American is like playing for the winning team. In many contexts the simple fact of being from the USA can move you up the status ladder. This shouldn't be surprising to anyone I wouldn't think.

1 upvotesAlgermas5 years ago

The thing is many women from poor countries tend to be far more pragmatic, they understand acutely that they're trading their youth and beauty for his wealth and security. An American or Western European woman has no need for such an arrangement because not only can she earn her own money she has the ultimate BB to catch her if she falls, big daddy government.

Not so for a Ukrainian or Filipino woman, she either gets it right or she goes back to the family farm/streetcorner.

To be sure you still need to be a man rather than a spineless fuckwad but you don't have to give off "danger zone" vibes like you do with attractive western women.

I own my non-mansion-sized house outright (in a decent neighborhood in a tight coastal US housing market).

No he's fine with who he is and what he stands for. He didn't let money change him, or as a tool to keep people around. And he clearly know's he wants someone who has a similar opinion about it.

Will is basically using the strategy I plan on using when I come into my own wealth. It's fun to see the strategy it being put to use (and to see it working perfectly).

I'm convinced that this is the only real way to live as a wealthy man whose goal it is to filter quality, self-actualizing women from the gold-digging hamster marathon runners who think of themselves as open-minded and compassionate, but who prove to be less-so when the time comes to turn words into action.

What gold digging sluts will never understand is that, usually, men are rich because they live frugal lives.

See, this is solipsism gone wild here. She looked at this man through the prism of how SHE would live her life if SHE had a bunch of money. She would be spending like a drunken sailor on designer beach condos, flashy cars, Louis Vuitton handbags, make-up, designer clothes, and a closet full of shoes. She would make it very obvious to everyone around her that she had money.

Men usually feel no such compulsions. We may splurge on a home theater or maybe a nicer car, but when a rich MAN spends money, he's spending it on things/occasions that provide utility to him. And he sure isn't spending whimsically on the desires of some slut simply because she granted access to the holes between her legs.

if you are really serious, suffer through intro level micro and macro economics and finance courses. there are free resources available on youtube however if you are willing to shell out a few hundred or even a few thousand to sit in a classroom, it will be worth every penny. having a general idea of how an economy operates is very important.

2 upvotesCrayolaS75 years ago

It really depends on where you are and stuff. In my country the short-cut to wealth is through real-estate investment because there are huge benefits in terms of taxation, that said it is still a long-term payofff. Personally I have made good money from investments in bank shares (dividends were as high as 11% of the value in 2011-2012 when the prices were still low. Now the price of the shares has increased I would make a bunch if I sold them but instead I get about 6% per year which is much better than a savings account. Now, banks in your country may be a risky investment but the point is that you should look for shares where you can make a return regardless of the markets direction. Even when there have been crashes, the market eventually recovers. As long as you aren't forced to sell when it's low you won't actually lose out just because the price decreases. (Unless the company goes bankrupt, I guess, but I'm talking blue-chips here).

As for simple things that anyone can do, make sure you savings/checking account is as cheap as possible, look for banks that reward you with bonus interest for online savings accounts, you can often get all the fees waived if you deposit something like $1000/2000 per month (your wages). Mine even gives me free withdrawals from any ATM rather than just my own bank.

Secondly, it's rarely too early to start thinking about tax minimisation. Obviously it will depend on your country/laws but it is sometimes possible to for example, have your mortgage/car-payment deducted straight from your salary by your employer. The cost of the repayment remains the same but because you never personally received it your taxable income will be reduced.

2 upvotesPrecocious_Kid5 years ago

Read "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" by Burton Malkiel. It's the intro to investing that a good deal of banks and wealth management firms require their interns/first-years to read. It'll give you a good understanding of the vehicles for wealth management you have at your disposal and it'll also help you to avoid the get rich quick kind of books.

1 upvotesshould_5 years ago

Nice, thank you! This sounds like a particularly useful book for a lot of reasons then. It's really cheap on Amazon too.

2 upvotesomnipedia5 years ago

You're doing the right thing. Read every investment book you can get your hands on- this is one area not to be frugal about it. A terrible book that manages to save you one bad trade will pay for itself in the saved commissions alone!

Personally I like the Timothy Vick books about warren buffet, and Mary buffets' "buffetology".

One thing to be aware of is there is a lot of nonsense out there. Diversification is kinda nonsense- assumes your an idiot throwing darts. Real estate can be good if you avoid bubble situations, look at direction of neighborhood, buy cheap not when things are hot.

When people tell you it's a bad idea, that's the time to buy. I passed on apple at less than $1 a share! If I'd put $10k in- which I had at the time- it would be $1M. Sigh.

Art CAN be a business (and hobby, much like investing) but it's very hard to make a nice living off of art. Because a) you want to create art you love b) if you want others to buy it, THEY must love it as well. This does not always overlap.

1 upvotesPornography_saves_li5 years ago

Nope. No more than a hair salon, or retail clothing outlet, or any otherproduct.

You want to increase your income? Learn how to sell effectively (become comfortable with the idea that the 'correct' price is the highest your clients are willing to pay.

And if they aren't willing to pay, either improve or find another line of work.

Just like any other business.

Art is both a creative process and compulsion. But like any compulsion, it either works for you, or against you.

40 acres in the Midwest isn't as bad as you'd think, but you definitely need to do more then paper routes... Pressure washing is a pretty good gig you can do around that age...

Honestly, the best investment I've made so far has been buying a house. I know, hear me out first. I'm 22, fresh out of college. Illinois gives $7,500 to first time home owners right now on top of low interest loans and only 1% down. I took a small sum of my inheritance and bought a 2 story house in Wicker Park, Chicago (a trendy upscale neighborhood). Got a fair price on the home since the market is shit. Now i live on the first floor with a roommate and collect rent from 3 other tenants. I basically live for free (rent covers mortgage, util., etc.) with another $1,000 profit on top each month. It was the best decision I've ever made. So good im looking into buying another small place to rent out. Being a slumlord is actually kind of fun anyway. Just kidding.. but seriously, it was a great investment and I encourage anybody with a bit of disposable income to do the same.

Because for like 30+ years he has also had an array of various vacation properties & condos & stuff, and rides around in limos and other stuff too... the man's not STUPID with his "frugality". (Of course he also isn't a Richard Branson style "showoff".)

My savings are fuck you money. It's there for safety.

If I got fired today, I could go on for exactly 30 months (or 60 months if I went completely frugal). I actually had a lengthy period, when I survived off of the savings.

I saved this up, because I am a cheap asshole, who does rent a cheap apartment and was driving a shitty car and now uses public transport. It's a matter of personality. Buying luxury is painful for me.

Also, no college debt. Taxpayers payed for this.

How long did 30 months take you to build?

2 upvotesjohnnight4 years ago

Less than five years. It was a combination of a cheap rent (usually the biggest cost of living) and a few high payout contracts.

I guess that's because I didn't have a steady income or else I would feel comfortable spending more per month. My base income was low and I adjusted spending to it. The bonuses were high and rare, so it didn't feel safe to increase consumption, when I got them, because the next payouts were not certain.

No wife and no kids either, very cheap car.

Investing a car payment in mutual funds averages 5m over 40 years (working lifetime). Throw in house payment and student loans and you're looking at 20m. Having the foresight to pay ahead of time and using that savings well, does in fact make you rich.

3 upvotesLeatherJacketQ5 years ago

imma need to see the math behind that one. On an average mutual fund with a historic range of 40 years.

1 upvotescolovick5 years ago

go to any investing calculator, set the rate to 12 or 13% and contribute roughly 500 per month. See how your numbers come out.

http://www.bloomberg.com/personal-finance/calculators/retirement/

This is a pretty simple one... setting the annual contribution to $6k and rate of return to 12% gets you 4.6M, whereas 13% gets you 6M. Both at a 40 year time span. Assuming for the other figure, you have a combined mortgage and student loans of 1500 per month (really not unreasonable), that raises the annual contribution to $24000 which nets between 18 and 24M based on those same rates, which are the average rates of the market over the last 80 something years, and it's safe to say that you want to use funds that are out performing the market within their specific type of fund.

The math is solid. You don't need to follow such a plan precisely since you still need to come up with the cash for the car and house, and you have a few other things to plan for, but you can fund somewhere between those 2 figures pretty easily on a 60k per year income.

Also consider the fact that while you'll want to cut back on your risk once you hit retirement age, cutting back to 8% growth and drawing 4% (leaving enough growth to keep up with inflation), you're sill looking at drawing between 200k and 960k per year while leaving enough to setup several generations for long term wealth.

You can say RP men, don't delude yourself into thinking all men are frugal, financially responsible geniuses. I know many who'd show off if they were rich and I'm probably one of them. Your average nerdy guy probably won't spend his money on expensive stuff unless he's into collectibles, but someone who likes dressing nicely and buying stuff impulsively (which includes both men and women) isn't going to live a frugal life.

1 upvotesJP_Whoregan5 years ago

Hence why I stressed the word "usually". Financial irresponsibility knows no gender boundaries, just as it is possible for a man to have a rationalization hamster. I'm just saying it's more common in women on both fronts.

It's also important to note that, just as in OP's example, "income" rarely equals "wealth". There are thousands of families in this country making north of six figure incomes annually; however, they choose to live in 4,000 sq ft McMansions, drop $10K for a pool in the backyard, and have a couple of Escalades in the driveway because they're trying to "out-luxury" the neighbors in their gated community. Despite all of the money they make, they're so financially extended they are still literally one missed paycheck or one job layoff away from foreclosure and/or bankruptcy.

That being said though, why the hell is Will not using his wealth to up his status?

I mean if you're loaded and drive around a fucking 1997 Toyota and "pre-drink" before going out to hit the bars, sorry brother but you are cheap as fuck.

It seems like that, along with the description of him being shy, makes him out to have severe insecurity issues. He probably fears people using him for his money; he is failing to take accountability of the new responsibilities his fortune has bestowed upon him.

Perhaps he wants a simple life, but he is a fool if he is truly loaded with riches for life to not max out and live the Bilzerian lifestyle.

That is the fucking RP dream. And he's sitting at home, watching shitty movies on Netflix and having... Potato soup for dinner?!

This is what we all want to work for here, to be successful, as rich as possible, good-looking, fit, and as masculine and dominant as we ever can: this will either guarantee you your own top-notch personal harem of beautiful women to have your way with, or the top 1% of women to reproduce with and "gene-proof" your legacy with high-quality genetic material.

As for gold-digging whores, you have only one-itis to worry about, and your RP frame will filter them out easily. Leaving only room to fuck them a couple of times on the regular and dump them as quickly as their eyes start glittering with gold.

And honestly, I do not blame the woman for dumping him. We all talk about women wanting a mixture of alpha and beta traits in men, and this undoubtedly includes the role of provider. She fucked this guy for 10 months, but she's an older gal and she knows she wants to ensure the highest mate she can before she hits the wall, and this means a dominant, exciting, resolute, BUT also financially successful male. I cannot in good conscience condemn her decision to want to have a mate who at least instills on her some financial security, because this is a major psychological provider role that must be fulfilled in her life.

We know this is true, and this is also the reason we advise young men here to focus in their career: because this will allow them to be independent, sure, but it will also allow women to feel safer about their commitment with his man and in turn make him a wonderful choice for the type of women he wants to have in his life.

This is basic, amoral, sexual strategy. She might try to rationalize it but she didn't cheat, she didn't manipulate him into submitting to her. She was simply unsure of her future with this man, and this is understandable as it is understandable to us not wanting to commit to a slut as a serious relationship partner because of the uncertainty our future may hold in spite of it.

I'd lease a brand new car and stay current with a new model every two or three years, and I'd travel wherever I could, whenever I wanted.

The thing is, if he is already high status with looks and game, he won't be perceived as "beta bucks" because of his wealth, he will instead be the ultimate prize for women, and this gives him immense SMP power.

Which, again, takes us to the same conclusion as has been previously stated: either he has massive insecurity issues about his wealth and what that means to him socially, or he probably has some nice money stashed around but nowhere near wealthy enough for a truly playboy-esque lifestyle.

If it's the latter then he's probably maxing out his capital and living frugally while figuring out what to do with it. If it's the former then he is a true fool or perhaps the next Dalai Lama.

You do realize that most "status" things -- rather than being a sign of actual wealth -- are generally the sign of the opposite: a growing pile of debts, right?

Than again... you probably DON'T realize that.


As to why he doesn't spend it... well, even oil & gas money won't continue to flow forever; he's still pretty damned young, and has a lot of life left to live... he's probably investing to make certain it lasts for the long haul.

That's really smart... no it's beyond "smart", it's WISE.

Now don't go getting in debt you can't handle to increase your status but by God if a huge oil inheritance lands on your shoulders by all means live it up.

Thank you. I think it's totally legitimate to dismiss a woman who think she's entitled to some super-awesome lifestyle and resents her man who isn't able to provide it even though he works his ass off (in fact, I know several woman from several generations who are like that); and - assuming the post is legit, which quite possibly it's not - it reflects badly on her that she thinks she deserves a life similar to the highlight reel of her friends just because. But it's another thing if she doesn't want to spent her life with some lazy semi-hobo who apparently doesn't have his shit together and no plan B for the time when his websites don't generate money any longer. Of course, love might have conquered that if she had been willing to work herself for both in case his source of income runs dry, but let's be honest here - that's not how most women are wired.

His tactic is of course awesome for weeding out golddiggers, but the way he did it, he'd probably also miss out on quite a bunch of women who are decent yet foresighted enough to not marry the first guy they're into if he doesn't show any longterm potential. I mean, honestly, would you rationally want to marry a woman you were in love with, yet who you knew to have extremely poor spending habits and who would probably burn through your bank account in no time?

The female equivalent would be wearing a fat suit at all times and not taking it off until marriage

Maybe a closer equivalent would be a decent looking woman, but who has frizzy hair and wears dumpy clothes. After you break up with her, you find out she was doing some modeling on the side, and when she tries, she actually looks smokin' hot. She just chooses to take it easy and not worry about fashion and looks too much in her private life.

Nah... that would be false. Being "frugal" is the reality of this guy, as another commenter ITT noted: that is how you get (and/or STAY) "loaded" (relatively speaking anyway) -- if you piss it away on crap then you generally don't/won't stay loaded for long.

What even this guy's friends may not be aware of is that even oil & gas rights money doesn't continue to flow forever. Will almost certainly learned to live his frugal (and easy-going) manner from his father and grandpa -- and no doubt they also advised and taught him to save up/invest for the day when that oil/gas money WILL run dry.

Satisfying read. I'm surprised people on TwoXChromosomes ripped into her. I thought that subreddit is all about support.

She's not gold digger on the level of V Stiviano, but she is using a typical woman trick -- using break up to get what she wants... assuming she didn't lie to lessen the gold digging-ness of her post.

This is actually an "accepted" power struggle practice according to many women, as my female friends, who were undoubtedly on my side, have suggested that pulling something like this on my girlfriend (at the time) was "okay". I didn't get it back then, but I get it now.

One thing I learned through out my dating and relationship mishaps, is that whatever you learn from women, becomes a tool that you can also use as well. Yes, this "pretend" break up trick works disgustingly well against women, because you are then speaking their language. I would say it works better against women than it works against men, because women know this is just a way to tell them how important an issue is, where men will just think WTF this chick is breaking up with me. Plus women tend to enjoy drama, and what's more dramatic then break up-make up?

IMHO of course, my personal experience is just a small subset of what's out there, so maybe I just have the luck of picking the ones that like drama.

One caveat, as with any gamble, is that you should be prepared to lose whatever it is that you are betting.

This chick didn't realize that part.

I don't blame her at all, she is a few years away from hitting the wall and needs to know she is with someone who can provide. C'mon people this is Red Pill 101.

It's one thing to be frugal and it's another to be cheap. I mean, if he is happy doing what he is doing and that's all he wants then fine with me, nothing against him. And it seems like from his reaction to her he understands his position in life and is happy with it.

With the nature of women we can't just expect her to be happy when it seems like this dude is a poor bum with no motivation. Seems like you guys don't understand the basics and want her to be something she isn't. As long as he realizes that then everything is fine here. Nothing good or bad, just obvious. I wouldn't really say there is any hamstering going on here, just her understanding her biological need and him not showing he can fulfill it in any way.

I agree. I think she saw a life time of potato soup for dinner and him not trying to better himself. She's probably better off anyway. People that cheap don't change.

I knew an old lawyer once who would walk three blocks from his office to make copies because he could save 5 cents per copy. And it wasn't a whole lot of copying so he probably saved 50 cents per trip on average.

6 upvotestallwheel5 years ago

I see this as more of an RP example than a "women behaving badly" or "hypergamy gone wild" story. Yes, you are right that it is natural for women who are nearing the wall to seek someone she knows can provide.

Thing is, feminism and the general 'you go girl' attitude created guys like Will. Dude lives how he wants, and when she told him she wanted to break it off, dude handled it like a boss. Hell, the way I see it, bitch was practically a plate and just didn't know it. I'll bet Will will be screwing another bitch in no time - if he isn't already - and he will break it off with the new bitch too as soon as she becomes no longer worth the trouble.

Yes, this is the world we now live in, so it's hard to be too surprised about the way she acted. Still, I think most of us here would have a hard time not feeling a bit of schadenfreude seeing examples like this where the old deal between the sexes is clearly crashing and burning. One may feel sorry for women in the crash, but this is the pond feminism led them to, and they all chose to drink from it. They can either try to repair the system (good luck with that) or live with the consequences of it.

TRP is so gripping... So about 2 years ago, I'm very close with this couple (family friends). Husband owns a small business making millions per year. Enough to send the kids to an expensive private school, buy them new cars, etc. The kids will have to work when they're older, but they always treated their kids (and family/friends) very well.

Wife? She works a fairly easy job full time, doing something she's passionate about. Her ol' boss used to let her work different hours so she'd be out of there by 3 most days.

Did I mention she did the books?

Keep in mind he's getting old and was ready to retire.

At some point ol' husband gets a tad bit suspicious when there's no money to pay the bills. How could this be? The wife had "cooked" the books up the whole time they were together.

Now, I don't know their exact financial situation at that point other than they were either in debt or had nearly nothing except the value of his business. One thing that he did mention was that she had literally hundreds of shoes in her closet that had never been worn ONCE.

Anyway, you know what's coming next. She pushed for divorce as soon as there was no more money. They got divorced, and Mr. I'm Going to Retire Soon is still working 2 years later with no end in site.

Take away? If nothing else, don't let your wife do the books.

Will's the rare type of guy who can inherit a great deal of wealth and not turn into a retard. That is discipline and true non-neediness; nearly everyone you meet will on some level care about "showing off" what they make to their GF / wife so they can feel successful. This is the level you should aspire to - in fact, if you truly want to enter relationships where you aren't the beta bucks, you have to be at this level. If you are at the point where you'd rather the relationship die than you have to play the BB role for 1 second... that is when you're ready to move on from plates to LTR.

If a man with disposable income meets a woman he likes, doesn't he want to treat her?

I could understand treating as in buying small gifts, tokens of affection. But the way she understands male-female relations is that the man works, buys her property and these are 'significant relationship gains'. The woman does not have material success on her own. She does not work to get what she wants on life. She gets it by getting it from the man. If she can't make her man get it for her, she is jealous of the other women, who got it.

Anyways, don't be too harsh on the bitch. She was just deploying her hypergamy and her need to find a rich partner.

I'd much rather have a nice big house than a nice car.

Big houses are overrated.

They're either a bitch to maintain & clean, or you have to hire staff to do it for you; same with the outside.

And for the most part they end up just being a building with a lot of empty, unused rooms. What use do you or will you really have for 7 bedrooms? If you don't have lots of kids, then where's the value? Plan on having a lot of parasitic house guests? Using them as servants quarters for a live in valet or maid or chauffeur?

No? Well then they'll basically end up just being rooms to store shit in.

The same thing kind of happens with a lot of the other rooms in big houses, the formal dining room; again unless you have a large family or plan on giving "upscale dinner parties" (and seriously who actually does that anymore? I know quite a few people who have large homes with formal dining rooms, and they don't do that -- the rooms simply don't get used... the rare occasions when they do have a "party", they either do it at some rented hall with catering... or they grill out on the patio/deck and maybe the "sun-room" or "Florida-room" as it is sometimes called).

Face it, if you're like most people, the REAL reason you have fantasies about "a nice BIG house" is that you think it would impress OTHER people (i.e. look at me, and how successful I am with my big dick erm, I mean my big mansion-like house). You've never really envisioned what it would be like living in one of the things on a daily basis.

lolwut. Sounds like someone's projecting.

Nope, not at all. I actually own and am extremely happy with (having lived in it now for nearly a decade and a half) a relatively modest house (purposely sought out in exactly that form) -- and even that arguably has wasted room that encourages/enables "junk storage" that I would probably be better off without.

I am simply observing what people (especially women, but alas many men as well) "fantasize" about, and what (when they can get the ridiculous credit-derived funds) they all too often actually buy/build -- which ends up mostly as an expensive and fancy "facade" (literally), what the real estate industry refers to as "curb appeal" -- and then a lot of empty (and oversized) rooms to store unused junk & collect dust.

I just like having a lot of space, it doesn't need to be a mansion.

Except that "a lot of space" for a single individual (or even a couple) -- especially with modern appliances and conveniences -- really doesn't require that the house be very "big" at all; in fact anything beyond 500 to 1,000 sq ft of "house-living" space per person is simply wasted... it's only "value" is ostentation & vanity, it has zero utility.

And BIG houses happen when rooms get multiplied and then ridiculously oversized (i.e. the fairly recent trend to have a massive "master bedrooms" {planing multiple dangerous liason style orgies are we?} and commercial-sized or mansion-like kitchens with oversized separate dining rooms as well as parlors & gaming rooms, etc: useful for all of those really large catered parties that you won't actually be hosting, and of course entirely necessary for the bevy of live-in house-servants to work in to craft the daily feed for the on-site estate-workers to maintain the massive grounds, gardens, and carriage house & horses, as well as the various associated rental farms and fields that you won't have; not to mention providing daily meals for the large, extended, multi-generation family of grandparents, multiple siblings, plus the collection of a dozen or more children that will not be living with you).

In 2008 I was still a poor university student while working full time. By 2010 my income had doubled. At this time it's doubled since then.

I've still never owned a car. I still never eat out. I'm a biologist now, but I still split expenses living with my brother and my living expenses are so low they're almost negligible.

I live frugally and I'm pretty utilitarian. I don't purchase anything I don't use.

I spend money on karaoke bars but most of my other hobbies are cheap/free (performing music, gardening, hiking, camping, rock-climbing, etc).

At this time I have zero plans to buy a car until I start having children.

Oh, and I don't pay for dates. When I take a girl out, I take her out while I do something that I would already be doing anyway (those hobbies above). I cook the food and bring the food I cook instead of eating out. I bring the drinks.

If the date pans out, I had a great time. If the date sucks, I still had a great fucking time and just don't take the girl out again.

At this point I just ask myself: what can I even spend money on that I would want? After buying a desktop PC and a Ninja 250 there's nothing else I can think of to buy.

On the contrary, I think you're the one missing the point. You're having some lapses in logic with the points you're making. For example, you claim that she had no apparent reason to think he was in dire straits because, in your words, "cause he wasn't". Do you think that makes sense?

As far as being happy as-is, fine. But his as-is seemed very blue pill. So why should she accept a pussy blue pill? She described him as shy. That's beta as fuck.

Furthermore, your opinions are indicative of someone who's not only missed the point in this particular story, but you don't seem to even understand TRP as a whole. This forum shouldn't be a place where men come to complain about women and be passive aggressive. That's so disgustingly blue pill, it turns my fucking stomach.

It's immasculating behavior and I find it pathetic.

I've got wealthy friends who are "shy". They're not really, and are alphas. They pretend to be "shy" and are frugal because they don't want their money to attract women, they want to attract women who like them for them. The way he just let her go was alpha as well. He just walked her to the door and peaced out. Look how insane you're getting here, I bet if a chick turns you down or doesn't text you immediately after you text her you lose your shit. You're acting beta as fuck kiddo.

Moral of the story is, guy wasn't worried about money, was doing wtf he wanted to do and how he wanted to do it. Chick wasn't happy because her friends were doing all types of shit new money people do and were flashy with it, and she wanted that, figured she would never get it, broke up with him, found out he had no worries as far as finances go, and is pissy about it.

By dire straits I mean he wasn't having hus car repo'd, he wasn't getting harassed by bill collectors, wasn't begging her for money, etc.

He was living comfortably and securely, but that wasn't good enough for her. She wanted a more extravagant lifestyle "like her friends". She wouldn't have stayed with him even knowing he was rich, because he wasn't spending it on her.

I'm not sure what him being beta has to do with anything here. The point is how she misdescribes her situation and feels entitled enough to his money to whine on Reddit about it.

I work in a field that serves some really rich folks as clients (billionaires and hundred-millionaires) and you can tell that the ones who met their wives before they got rich are extremely loyal husbands and don't hire identical twin prostitutes or anything, since their wives are the only person in the world who isn't looking for a handout from them. And the ones who weren't married before they got rich, are always suspicious of women like this guy in the OP's story rightly was.

Why do you think Mark Zuckerberg wifed up Priscilla? Why does Eminem keep getting back together with Kim even though that relationship clearly doesn't work? Because they're the only women who they can ever be sure loved them for who they are, not their money or status.

Okay, this one pissed me off. TRP doctrine fundamentally believes that AF BB. In fact, the entire theory revolves around the idea. But, when a woman, surprise surprise, confirms the theory, it's quoted like it's a finger pointing contest.

Jesus fucking Christ guys. I fully accept the theory of hypergamy. We all do. In this instance we know that she's lying to herself and looking for a way to justify that she isn't a gold digger when she is.

Either TRP needs to accept that there are double standards and shut the fuck up about it, or not. In the latter instance I'll be leaving the community because in that context this sub is about masturbation of the ego and not self improvement. Any in-between is contributing to a feminist like circle jerk that makes it us vs them.

I say feminist like because that's what feminists do. They say "They have it soo much better. We have it soo much worse!" It's a self defeating thing to say. You are making TRP into this bullshit victim mentality that points to vaginas to say "see! See! They're all like that! Aren't they terrible! Men are not like this!"

We.

Are.

Men.

We are better than that. Men do not blame a scorpion for stinging a frog because it's in its nature. We accept the fact and move on because that's the only way we can better ourselves.

If you dwell on the advantage women have, you lose. Simple as. Do not waste time nodding in confirmation about how this bitch is whining out of the loss of a fucking fortune. You gain nothing.

With prior boyfriends, we'd still talk or text a bit after we'd be broken up. Sometimes we'd even still hook up.

This is important. Most women don't view a breakup as the end of a relationship because they are so used to being able to throw themselves at their ex boyfriends and use sex to get back together. This leads them to view a breakup as an ultimatum they can use to force a guy's hand.

3 upvotesSchrodingersdawg [OP]5 years ago

Then even worse because of how badly she's hamstering over his perceived wealth

1 upvotesthrownaway_MGTOW5 years ago

On the actual scale of things, he probably isn't very rich -- he's almost certainly not "Warren Buffett" or "Bill Gates" rich -- he has some decent (maybe even high 6 figure) passive income that he's inherited.

And he is apparently living accordingly (investing, and living a care-free, comfortable, but slightly frugal manner) -- in other words he's engaging in a rather pragmatic manner with a nice passive income flow (which probably won't last forever).

In a certain sense, she is/was correct -- he ISN'T "ambitious" in the sense that she is, and they DO want different things in life -- she wants to "climb" a social/economic ladder and to post status updates and get "accolades" about it by comparing her own progress versus her friends. She'll probably never be satisfied, because she will always be comparing herself to others (and there will always be someone else who has more in some manner).

By contrast, he's found (an in many ways been "gifted" with) a nice satisfying life -- he doesn't HAVE to work, and he doesn't seem all that concerned with trying to impress others or compare himself with them. So in that sense, his "ambition" is more to continue to enjoy life in a relaxed peaceful manner; it doesn't mean he won't EVER become passionate about something, but OTOH he isn't driven by some neurotic need to seek validation of himself through it.

Which is actually far more sensible to my mind. He's probably pretty happy with where he is at... why people (the kind who are going to therapists, reading self-improvement books, and popping all kinds of pills in order to try to be "happy") think there is something wrong with that... well who gives a shit what they think?

1 upvotesalisonstone5 years ago

It's actually quite possible that he only has an above average amount of income. His friend says "more than my salary in a quarter". So it depends on what his friend makes. Maybe his friend makes $40k/year, so this dude makes $160k. Chances are Will's friends are not exactly high income earners because it would be unlikely that they would have met Will (ex: engineers tend to meet other engineers through school and work, Will is a musician that doesn't eat at nice places, his friends are probably similar except that they don't have the big inheritance). $160k is pretty good, but not enough to buy 3 houses and nice cars.

Also, that oil field doesn't last forever. At some point, it'll run dry. Oil prices have been very high in the past few years, but recently it has plunged to a multi-year low. Depending on how the rights/royalties work, the checks might not come if the oil company decides it is not profitable to drill at current prices. If he inherited such a volatile source of wealth, you can bet that his parents and grandparents taught him how to manage it. Rich kids are typically not the spoiled brat stereotype you see on TV.

He's probably at a level where he realizes it doesn't make sense for him to bust his ass to make money, but he knows he can't just piss it away because he needs it to last his lifetime and he probably wants to leave some to his kids.

1 upvotesUdudude5 years ago

I partially agree with the woman.

Yes, she's 80-90% a gold digger, but the fact that after abour 1 year she decided to end the relationship because it didn't go anywhere; well I find this logical.

I ended my previous relationship because it felt like a hassle, it wasn't going anywhere and I knew I could get someone better that would want to improve both herself and motivate me also.

She was facing a complacent guy that seemed like a schmuck that had no goal, ambition, dreams, etc (which is what TRP is promoting you to have).

The way I see it, she genuinely liked him, but she saw that his SMV was stagnating/ degrading due to the same routine/ behavior/ etc.

I kinda believe it was his fault for being a boring lazy ass guy (that's how she makes him sound). OR he's so intelligent (and stupid) that he shittested her for almost 1 year and that eventually drove her away.

Hell if my whole relationship would be/ feel like a shitttest, I'd give it up in 1 month tops.

Or had she talked to him along the lines of "I want to have a future with you, but I'm concerned about finances... how would we manage, pay for kids, etc. while still letting you live the life you enjoy."

And done it WITHOUT the ultimatim/shit-test of "Oh, and I've already decided to break up with you because you're such a luzer!"

Then he might have considered letting her see behind the proverbial curtain, and letting her know (at least partially) that he had some "passive income" and investments that she need not worry about the future.

"Really into HIM" - look at the romantic here. Thought hypergamy and AWALT was the established facts of this subreddit.

Edit - Typo

1 upvotesthrownaway_MGTOW5 years ago

Thought hypergamy and AWALT was the established facts of this subreddit.

It's the overly-simplistic dogmatic view yes.

It is true in the sense that AWALT & hypergame are applicable to the vast majority of women that are indoctrinated and/or buy into feminist mantra stuff -- which is 99.99999% of those who remain available into their 20's and 30's (much less beyond), and of course also applies to a significant percentage of the ones who got "hitched" prior.

But the purported NAWALT "unicorns" actually do exist -- it's just that they get hunted and captured and taken off the market VERY early -- typically long before they reach college, and they become increasingly rare after that.

Then of course there is the "confirmation bias" of the fact that those few who do exist will generally either be corrupted by "online" dating, or else be appalled by and entirely avoid those things -- giving the very real impression that they do not exist at all (because there is no obvious evidence of them).

Agreed through that she needed to be direct, "I'm thinking kids, kids need more than potato soup, how will we manage?"

IF that was her actual concern, then yes she would have framed it that way.

But in this case (as in the overwhelming majority of others), that really wasn't her concern -- it's simply a faux-justification that she attempts (vainly) to tack on top of her actual "status" seeking rationale.

That's why money always comes before bitches. Women will reject you if you have no money. Women will take all your money or expect you to live a lifestyle you can't afford to impress them. Then when your money is all gone they'll drop you like a hot potato and go suck and fuck the next fake high-roller who is going broke to try to impress them. You end up broke and broken hearted with no money and no women.

That's why it is better to put money first before women. If one woman leaves you cause you don't want to waste money on her it doesn't matter. Because you can get money without women. And once you have money you can get a whole bunch of new women to replace the old one(s).

He sat and listened to everything, seemingly unmoved by it. When I finished talking, he said "fine by me" and asked me to leave. I went to hug him on my way out, instead he just guided me out the door and slammed it shut behind him.

Dude handled that like a boss. The only part I might change is the door slam, cause that comes off a little needy and angry. On the other hand, maybe he just did it for emphasis so that she knew he was serious.

I'll handle my next break up pretty much the same way. As I learned from Rollo, having a willingness to break up at any time is advantageous in a relationship. When my GF starts talking about being unsatisfied, or wanting to break up, and she becomes more trouble than she's worth, I will calmly show her the door and next her.

I never had this opportunity and work for every penny I need to put into education, businesses, investments etc.

I will buy drinks at bars (these are businesses too that have bills and staff- don't mooch), drive a nice car, and have a nice house with nice furniture while saving for retirement. Don't be stupid about it- invest wisely (security fund, roth/traditional ira, passive income sources, etc). Go make money- don't be afraid to spend some. Don't sit around and mooch off your grandfather's life work so much so that your girlfriend dumps you. If I were this guy, I'd be building businesses, investing wisely, and being even a bigger pimp than I already am.

This is inevitably going to get downvoted for the sole purpose that reddit culture is very frugal/cheap minded. The idea of wealth and money and status is looked down upon although peridoxically it's a red pill tenant. People are ok knowing that chad thundercock can score by being ripped, but the notion that money plays such a powerful role is too much. That's one part that gets barfed up when taking the pill.

The reason is that creating wealth is super fucking hard. Going to the gym for a year to get some muscle is easy and available. That concept is acceptable.

You can't have red pill without understanding the sheer power of money and wealth. TRP is not all feel good - 'be alpha- you can do it with just a gym membership!!'.

Why does everyone assume your version but not mine? Mine is actually more likely. You don't spend nearly a year with someone and don't figure out if he is driven or not.

No one would set him as an example of behavior.

However, this is mental porn for this whole sub. The idea of being super wealthy but living very bluepill life (alpha is disguise) gives us the tingles. We want to be that super wealthy guy stumming a guitar all day and chilling. This is an illusion though and a bit dangerous. Real life you have to fight to earn anything. Noone is going to give you oil inheretance money so you can live your hipster life in your old house jamming with your bros.

Reversing the roles, the equivalent would be dating a girl who has a great personality but otherwise wears a burqa and you have no idea what she looks like (i.e. how hot she is). When you tell her you're looking for good genetic material in a mate and can't continute without knowing what she looks like, she says "fine by me" and drops you.

You guys are just as bad as the fucking feminists. Disingenuous liars. This guy is a fucking bluepill with money. Fuck him.

I'm going to go against the grain. I think this guy is a prick. Women only have a small window in which to procreate without any problems. She put in the 10 months of some modest life and he should have been at least telling her about some solid plans for a decent life.

Any reason she can't be the one to bring in the income? God forbid she use her "facebook" time at work to advance her career.

Well these overpaid soft skill jobs getting paid as much as real work pisses me off too. Then these feminazi cunts have the gall to tell the world that women live in poverty. But I'm not going to advocate women being the soul bread winners. If they want to fine.

You're an idiot. This guy's finances would be destroyed by her & she didn't even like him.

A modest life is a good life. Spending money like it's free is stupid. Her solid plans were to spend money she couldn't earn and that's a stupid, bad plan.

As other commentators have already stated, maybe she could've asked him where they were going instead of just flat out dumping him?

I thought she'd already done that and he just didn't seem terribly motivated.

Whatever.

With prior boyfriends, we'd still talk or text a bit after we'd be broken up. Sometimes we'd even still hook up. I dunno, I've just never had a 'bad break-up' and always try to remain on good terms. I haven't heard a fucking word from Will, even after texting him multiple times and calling him once.

She never had a bad breakup because the rest of her bfs were alpha. She wuldn;t still be fucking them after breakup if they weren't.

Yeah, she's hamstering. But you know what? Women like men with money, power, and ambition. It's like men's infatuation with beauty. Sure it's shallow, but that's just the way it is.

From reading these comments it seems like a lot of people are willing to label any woman who cares about wealth a gold digging whore. Newsflash: almost EVERY woman cares about wealth. Remember AWALT? It's part of what a man brings to the table.

Our role as men is to identify and avoid the women who care EXCESSIVELY about wealth. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this woman wasn't one of those women. She broke up with a guy who gave every indication of being a loser.

Women are batshit crazy. This bitch is an entitled money grubbing whore.

i'm reading all these comments and i understand why some ppl think red pillers are misogynists. i'm sorry but the chick ain't do nothing wrong here. everybody is getting at her for saying she is not a gold digger because she went out with him for 10 months thinking he was broke, and they are pointing out that her ultimate decision makes her a gold digger. no. she's absolutely right she's not a gold digger because gold diggers don't go out with dudes thinking they are broke. period. not for 10 months, 6 months, 3 months, 2 weeks, 1 day, out to lunch. there is also red pill theory for women, and that is why i say the chick is a red piller and the dude is a blue piller or beta. is he going to continue living like he is broke and also has no job, thinking that he can find a chick that will like him for him and that that will be enough to keep her? that notion itself goes against the male red pill theory. from a woman's standpoint it makes no sense to stay with a guy simply because you love him. fuck it, from a biological/evolutionary stand point. you really are going to get at her for this?

I'm getting at her for completely changing her tune after finding out he has money.

1 upvotesSoUrLovin5 years ago

yeah but she's not changing her tune. look at the title of her post, she's asking people to explain dude's actions. and quite frankly i'm a little bit confused as well. UNLESS dude is a hardcore rp guy and she was just a plate but like his main squeeze and he was just acting weird but in his head he was like "bitch is getting too nosy about the dough" and so he just cut her off. this is especially dope if it's what happened cuz dude played it so well that it ended up being her action on the part of him not being ambitious or whatever that ended the relationship. so he got to maintain the control. like how he got to just tell her to be out and just slam the door behind him and not say a word to her ever again and she's all wondering like wtf??

0 upvotesSoUrLovin5 years ago

even at the end of her post she says that he could've kept the relationship alive by being forthcoming. and again referencing that he said he wanted her in his future. honestly she seems like a loyal down ass bitch (you never with these hos though what will happen once u drop some shit on em like u are a oil field heir) and i think that dude could've easily just broken it down to her and told her what was up but then followed it up with explaining that he's about his money and keeping it so that's why he lives frugal and that he wants her in his future but that the future entails a life of vast wealth but also great modesty. he doesn't spend any damn money on himself and he sure as hell aint spending money on a girl. that right there would've told you the substance of this girl even tho she did go out with this dude for 10 months thinking he was broke

From a woman's standpoint it should make sense to be with a guy because the guy, not his money, is good, and from a man's standpoint a woman who doesn't think this way is always a parasite and should be thrown out, removed, sooner the better.

Damn right I'll get on her for this & every other woman.

We live in a world where men have lost earning power, status & privilege for HER benefit. Because of that, because of her power to earn her own living, I expect it of her. I will not have my income potential sliced in half to suit her only for her to REFUSE TO EVEN USE IT, because now I'll never get back what's been denied me, and then the lazy bitch wants to siphon off what's left because she's still lazy?

Oh HELL no.

Women wanted feminist equality to earn the same as me, go fucking do it. I'm not your ATM.
