EDIT: Automod got me for brigading, back again

Link to op: https://archive.is/uULD2

Summary: OP (girlfriend) gets asked by an "ancient ex" to meet up in Amsterdam for a week while he is there for work (he lives in Italy and she in the UK). She books the ticket before mentioning anything to her BF because:

they were on sale for a ridiculously low price on the dates that he would be there, so I jumped at the opportunity.

Boyfriend breaks up with her without loosing frame and even 'that' subreddit calls her out for being wrong.

Body: So they've dated for 6 months and she thinks that going alone to Amsterdam to meet up with an "ex from ancient history who is more like a best-friend" is a good idea. She starts with the excuses even in the title.

Her boyfriend shows exactly how a situation like this are to be handled, no harsh words, no complaining about not going simply holding frame:

Pete seemed cool with it at first but after a few days asked me if there was any history between us. I was honest and told him there was. He didn't seem too bothered and eventually asked if I thought visiting an ex in another country was appropriate whilst in a relationship. I explained to him how Dave and my relationship wasn't like that and that we were strictly platonic. He didn't seem to really react, he just gave me a look that was...sarcastic, I suppose, would be the best way to describe it.

Edit: "he just gave me a look that was...sarcastic" -> "dont need to talk, just grin" (c) Endorsed TRP-philosophy.

First he calmly suspects that this is more than platonic and asks her and her hamster believes that going a week to Amsterdam with an ex to do drugs and partying is a sign of a "platonic friendship" and feels safe confessing that he is actually an ex. He then proceeds to ask if she think its appropriate (not telling her its not, just vetting to see if she is really LTR material).

She then pulls out the "strong independent black woman" card as a response:

I then told him that I wouldn't be controlled and hated men that thought they owned me and could tell me what to do. I told him I was free to see who I wanted and that I found his lack of trust in me upsetting, disrespectful and, perhaps, a sign of future abusiveness. I now realise that this may have been a bad thing to say. Again, he didn't really react so I thought that was the end of it.

Here most men would have caved, given her reasons not go, told her not to go or even worse, supported the idea of the trip because nobody wants to be an "abusive boyfriend". Her boyfriend on the other hand shows exactly how to hold frame he even explains it to her:

Then, last night, he came around to my flat and broke up with me! I asked him why and tried to get him to explain himself and he told me that my going away was to see "another man" a deal-breaker, that he'd been in this type of situation before and wasn't going to go through it again. I asked him if this was an ultimatum - I hate ultimatums, they are tools of abusers - and he said "No, its not an ultimatum. I've decided to break up with you. I have not presented you with any options. I just came to say goodbye." Before I could say or do anything more, he kissed me on the forehead, said goodbye and walked away. He didn't seem angry, just...sad.

No harsh words, no ultimatums, no anger, just HELD FRAME. He realise a women that cant show her relationship the respect it deserves dont deserve him and he simply lets her go.

Here comes some bonus:

To make matters worse, I told Dave about what happened and he replied "Oh well, guess that means we can have even more fun then! ;o)" He didn't care about my relationship and my pain - he just wanted a hookup buddy and someone to get stoned with whilst he was in Amsterdam.

Suprise, her ex-boyfriend didnt invite her to Amsterdam to party to have a platonic friendship re-kindle. Obviously both men in this story knew exactly what was up but she comes to the Internet asking for advice of what went wrong.

I tried calling Pete today, about an hour ago, and he actually answered! He told me that I should look to be with someone who wasn't so abusive. He said, "Please stop calling me - this is over. Have a nice trip to Amsterdam" Then he BLOCKED me! How could he do that to someone he loves? Is he over reacting or was I? What should I do now? Was I wrong?

"How could he do that to someone he loves?" she asks herself without any self-reflection (until even the Internet told her that yes, you were wrong).

Lessons learnt:

  • Women believe in their hamsters, they are not lying when they say they "didnt cheat" or "it just happened", just because she believes her own lies dont mean you have to.

  • Hold frame, even if your girlfriend is planning on going on a fuck-trip to Amsterdam with an EX.

  • AWALT?

Fiance breaks up with boyfriend because he lives "frugal and have no ambitions", a few months after breaking up her friends tell her he is loaded and she cant understand why he never showed her the money or spent any money on her.

Sure if you sort the right subreddit by top or search it youll find it, I cant remember where it was posted though.

74 upvotesVasiliyZaitzev3 years ago

That was cross-posted here. If I am not mistaken, that was the lumberjack guy who played guitar and wasn't "ambitious" enough, drove a beater car or something, so she dumped him and he went "meh" and wished her well, etc. She told one of his friends and the guy chuckled and said she dumped a guy who owned thousands of acres of land and was worth a shit-ton of cash.

EDIT: It was this guy

20 upvotesSACRlion3 years ago

I can't find the link, but there was a follow-up post a year later from the bitch where she termed the reason for the breakup to be "life issues, wanting different things, etc." She completely re-wrote the reason for the breakup in her mind.

She went back to the same NYE party she met him at the year before, got all wet and tingly when he hugged her, and then slumped into a deep depression when she realized he was with another girl, and had completely moved on from her. It was greatness.

Just sorry I can't find the follow-up link or archived post.

6 upvotesempatheticapathetic3 years ago

There was a follow up at some point if i remember. How she had hamstered the story over time to remember that she dumped him.

I just noticed that on top of inheriting money, he ran a few websites. You don't run a few websites without knowing what you're doing somewhat. I bet he had a solid living wage from those sites. So he did tell her he made some money.

1 upvotesEastInternetCompany3 years ago

She was right to dump him. Based on available information that guy is an ambitionless loser. You can't blame her for doing exactly what we're trying to do here. Trying to find a better people for our lives. If you ask me she too was red pill. Just not a good researcher.

14 upvotesCornyHoosier3 years ago

Girl came on Reddit to complain about her very wealthy boyfriend who recently broke up with her. She was mad because she found out he was wealthy after she broke up with him for not wanting to go out on a bunch of dates and buy her shit. Her finding out he was wealthy turned her smugness of the breakup into anger.

The reasoning for the breakup was that he often wanted to spend his personal time watching Netflix with her and made her meals (specifically made her soups; because when people make you food, you should complain about it).

Best part was that she found out later was that he had, without her knowledge, paid a bunch of medical bills for some family pet that were ill (something along those lines) and told her mom to keep it a secret. I guess even her mom told her it was stupid to have broke up with him.

Pete did beat one of the toughest challenges: willingly giving up pussy, even when you don't have backups available (assuming he wasn't talking to other girls while dating)

I hate to say it, but if it was me I'd string that relationship on until I found another girl to replace her. Pete is definitely more mature than I...

32 upvotesthe_number_23 years ago

Perhaps Chad is TRP in single, plate-spinner mode and Pete is TRP in (semi-)exclusive, LTR mode?

11 upvotesMachismo013 years ago

It's all good. At some point you decide that you have a path forward. Career and such going smoothly and you just want someone to share in it. Not a plate but someone quality and worthy of respect. You go on dozens of first dates until you find one even worth a second. You court her (seriously) since you want to find a worthy mate. Maybe she passes. Maybe she fails. You drop her if she does. You don't want to wast yours or her time. That is Pete. Eventually you get some comfortable stability and you have the quiet confidence that befits a middle-aged man.

Not sure the elapsed time in between some of their conversations, but I suspect Pete starting lining his ducks in a row before he pulled the trigger.

20 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

Yeah, it's pretty fucking selfish and a clear sign that the girl doesn't understand how healthy female-male relationships work. Also, it may be a sign that she just dated losers most of the time who tolerated this kind of behavior from an LTR.

"Oh yeah Beta Ted is soooo chill he like doesn't get jealous of my jacked guy-friend Alpha Tony when we have our sleepovers together. He's such a great guy!"

18 upvotesIbex3D3 years ago

One of my closest friends is a female but she has a boyfriend. We get drunk together, smoke together, she even slept in my bed last weekend. Now, I have literally zero interest in her. I have never made a move and will never make a move on her. Realistically, there is nothing wrong with this situation for her boyfriend but he has only met me 3 times. There is no way he could know that I'm not trying to make a move on her. I just can not get over how he is just cool with his girl coming over to my place and getting all sorts of intoxicated and then sleeping here. If I were him this would never fucking fly. It's amazing what some guys will put up with

7 upvotestb876703 years ago

Even if it's true that she's not doing anything with the other guy, and I will be honest it's probably true half the time we hear this, I still wouldn't let it fly. It's not appropriate and everyone knows it, the woman just wants her cake and eat it too. They want the male friends they can play around with inappropriately as well as their boyfriend not being jealous. It's sad so many guys deal with it. I said no to one of these situations before and honestly forgot the gal's name.

3 upvotesIbex3D3 years ago

Even if it's true that she's not doing anything with the other guy, and I will be honest it's probably true half the time we hear this

You know, this makes me wonder how often this shit happens but the guy is too beta to act on it. I mean, I'm not exactly attractive but I do act super "alpha" around this girl because I'm legit not interested. I bet a lot of guys break up over this stuff(justifiably) but nothing actually happened because the guy was too beta to initiate it lol

But yeah, I wouldnt put up with this if I was in a ltr. Thats bullshit.

I was exclusively dating a girl for a while. We were out with friends and she started talking with one of my friends. I chimed in on the conversation and she pretty much ignored me.

Later, she turned her attention back to me and tried to kiss me. I pulled away like I was Neo dodging a bullet in the matrix.

Later, in the cab on the way home, she expressed her anger at how I reacted to her trying to kiss me. She said that the way I reacted was "violent." I ended things then and there. You can never trust a woman who is digging for reasons to call you violent/abusive.

Unfortunately, they have all seemed to learn to key in on the liberal buzzwords since they are inscrutable as the ideas they represent infallible.

I had a girl I was working on a project with in school come up to me with a promotional poster for an event once. (I was the project manager). She asked me if this looked good and it was ok to print?

I read it and said "I really like the design, but you spelled every single speakers name wrong, and several capitalization mistakes in the texts. Rework it and bring it back."

I later heard she wanted to get other members of the group to go to the professor and report me "bullying" her but no one woudl do it.

Sounds like they were smart enough to realize that if she would do that you, they were next the moment they didn't pander to her either.

38 upvotesinsickness3 years ago

Victimization ideology has infected all areas of culture. People who aren't allowed to identify as victims (whites, males, heteros, etc.) are scared to death of being labeled with shame words (racist, sexist, homophobe, abuser, etc.)

In my youth I would buckle at the first moment a woman cried victim. I'm sure most men do. Women know this and many are keen on taking advantage it. Unfortunately men these days need to be very politically aware--or redpill aware--to counter these accusations.

I'm dominant but hyper aware of boundaries so whenever a woman pulls anything like this, I am automatically done with her. It is a sign of inner rot. If you don't end it, later in the relationship she will start to make demands under the guise of equalism. "Why are you always in charge?" "Things should be 50/50" "You should compromise just as much as me" etc. And when you do compromise, she loses respect for you. Even though she says she wants you to compromise, her attraction dries up faster than a desert mirage when you do.

I literally had to move after that to get away from her lol, cause no one ever laid it out like that to her. She house wifed it up in the kitched, and porned it up in the sack, and then I was out when she started catching feelings and wanting to move in

I had a girlfriend like that. My most recent ex actually. Every time we were having a conversation that was moving towards somewhat heated topics (politics, feminism, stuff like that), she would most of the time parrot feminist memes such as wage gap and the likes, and accuse me of "stepping all over her" when I disagreed with her. Terribly fucking annoying and it also makes it impossible to take the person seriously.

This part bothered me the most. This bitch was grasping at anything to pin on this guy. He didn't slip up on anything. Just asked a few questions, tried to get her to realize what's up, tells her it's over swiftly, answers her call telling her have a great time, and done. She got dumped, the other guy wants to just bang her, and at the end of it she has no one to blame but herself.

Edit: The whole time she calls him "abusive". Dude was cooler than a polar bear. Didn't yell, didn't get mad, didn't hit or get physical, kissed her on the forehead, told her have a great time in Amsterdam, and got out of her way. She wants to party hard with and old ex, screw him, all while expecting this guy to wait for her to come back after getting a drugged up and banging her ex for a week and expected him to accept the she was feeding him. She doesn't care about the relationship, has no issues with cheating, or how he feels about it. Who is abusing who? And if it wasn't a big deal why you lying about it?

Do you ever think there's too ready to walk away? I next girls relentlessly, even plates. I've slept with and gone out with more women since finding TRP two years ago than the previous 30 years combined. In that time, I've met maybe 2 women that I thought would make decent LTRs.

My time is too valuable, I just don't care to waste it when 99% of these women have nothing more to offer than a warm hole between their legs and (sometimes) they cook me food.

I definitely fall into the second category you mention. I've had a few LTRs when I was bluepill that ended horribly. I do believe that's 100x advantageous than the first category. I just wonder if I've seen too much and just avoid wasting my time on worthless women?


5 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

I don't think there is a such thing as too ready to walk away, as long as you are patient enough to game a girl you meet at the bar on a night out. Like you said, your time is too valuable to deal with the BS that many women bring. All that matters is you are happy.

I should elaborate more: It is extremely likely, as I see with her sense of entitlement, that once she was there she'd at some point decide to have "fun."

18 upvotesCasanova-Quinn3 years ago

Yep. In this type of situation, the relationship is already over. There's no saving it, because there's only 3 outcomes.

  1. BF trusts GF and lets her go. She fucks her ex.

  2. BF complains to GF but lets her go. She fucks her ex.

  3. BF breaks up with GF before her trip. She fucks her ex.

Option 3 is the only scenario where the BF leaves the situation with dignity and makes his GF think twice about her decision.

I wasn't at all, kept neutral, encouraged her to move on and said I held no ill will. The last time she talked to me I got told "you want me back don't you, but I have no interest in you", I told her I didn't and her response was to angrily roast me out.

Figured there was no talking to this girl and been ignoring her since. To this day I think the crazy bitch still thinks I'm angry. Women will do anything to hamster away their insecurities.

Heard from a neighbor that had to deal with my second ex a few times a month. She still says I need to get over her. I'm having way too much fun fucking younger and hotter girls than she is to want her lying ass back. She is the one who moved closer to me, deliberately on my way to dump my trash so I have to go by her house a few times a month. When she sees me, she makes sure I see her, to the point of backing up and diving by my place.

Saw her sister yesterday, the one who wanted to fuck me. Maybe I'll accidentally bump into her at the 4th of July parade... And give her the opportunity to get fucked good and hard. Her sister is still cute despite being 31.

It's amazing right, even though I know why they want to think like that (trying to break your frame) it still boggles my mind. Of course they don't really believe themselves. Their doubts are laid clear for the world to see the moment they voice their fears.

Their fragile egos require her past boyfriends to be hung up about them. It's why they try to make a splash just before the break up. They want to be unforgettable, to break you so utterly that they will always know they made the right choice to leave you.

2 upvotesvengefully_yours3 years ago

This one has got to be kicking herself by now. She knows I always do better than my ex's, and they all want me back after they fuck it up. She will hear what I have going on and she will know she fucked up.

I am her only ex, she never knew anything before me. That means she will always remember me and compare everyone to me. I was her first for everything. It's unsurprising that she wants to be close to me and thinks I want her post wall ass back. I got her 20s, why would I want more of wrinkles, saggy tits and ass, and more bullshit? I'll be adding a couple plates this summer, younger and better looking than her, so she has less than zero chance of getting me back.

To this day I think the crazy bitch still thinks I'm angry.

Sounds like she's exhibiting textbook psychological projection!

Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.[1] For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.


3 upvotesPantsonFire12343 years ago

The girl was a master of projecting and would be perfect in a case study about psychopathy and messed up borderlines. Then again she also accused me of emotionally cheating when she was branch swinging to some other guy. So allot of her behavior is just female psychology at work.

3 upvotesp00pey3 years ago

projection is par for the course for all women. Some do it knowingly, aka being overtly manipulative, while most don't even realize they're doing it. But I've experienced it with every woman I've been with, to different digrees. Including highly educated doctors. AWALT

Goddammit I'm dealing with a girl calling me abusive because I think it's fucked up she gets drunk or does coke with guy friends at 2am (I don't do drugs...anymore). No we aren't dating, but we are exclusive (afaik) and I don't ever physically hurt or threaten her.

This post made me realize why the girl claims I'm abusive...it's because she wants the freedom to do whatever she wants without the consequences (me leaving her). By calling me abusive the blame is shifted onto me and I'm forced to either back down (which I did) or leave her. I think I will not be talking to her after this post.

The real redpill is he didn't give her an ultimatum. He let her be free in what she wants to do, and from that freedom he can judge her real character. He correctly realized this bitch could be wined and dined to cheat on him, so he left her.

If he gave her an ultimatum and she stayed, it doesn't change the fact that she wanted to go and wanted to cheat on him.

12 upvotesmax_peenor3 years ago

Her use of the word "ultimatum" is so very hamstery. It is like saying someone should keep a faithful to a contract is an ultimatum. If he presented her with options, that's an ultimatum and highly retarded. Telling her that her actions would break the existing deal is not an ultimatum. What a dumb twat.

14 upvotesTrumpBull3 years ago

Exactly. Honestly what this guy did was fucking amazing on so many levels. He gave her the illusion that she could do what ever the fuck she wants. Then if she throws up enough red flags or does something that is dishonest, he just dumps her right away. This is next level shit to weed out disloyal hoes. It goes with the hole mindset of always be closing, even if your trying to find a long term girlfriend. Because she wont tell you she is a ho, you have to test her.

This illustrates the importance of stoicism and detachment when presented with tests such as these. Had the boyfriend reacted emotionally when she told him about the trip, she would've felt justified in her actions and her trigger-happy slinging of the "abuser" label. What's more, she would've likely lied about the nature of her relationship with the ex and only trickle-truthed him months after she had slept with her ex.

Instead, Pete maintained his calm and dodged a massive bullet. Kudos to him.

Problem was Dave showed his hand so she figured out she was just going to be a fucktoy and not a potential girlfriend.

10 upvotesenfier3 years ago

She's got cognitive dissonance. Two conflicting ideas in her head and if ever the two should meet you are going to see sparks fly. She can't hold both the idea that she's a "good girlfriend" and flying to another country to cheat on her ex so her brain stitches together a useful lie that reconciles the two ideas - she's just going there to hang out. After she gets drunk and fucks him, she'll then move onto the next lie of "it was a drunken mistake" to free herself of blame. No one is ever the villain in their own personal narrative. She literally believes both of those lies.

Dave fucked up by pulling back the curtain and forcing her to confront the truth.

19 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

If it's real, she knew that it was unacceptable, but it was a big shit test.

There comes a point for alpha/type A men who are intelligent when you just have to cut the cord, and this was that point. Simply put, this is a RPed man to some extent and he understands (again to some extent that's hard to know) that women will always attempt to make him submit and that it's either her way or the highway. You can't game your woman for life, you're either her beta or you're of no use to her. A genuine alpha who is healthy will never allow himself to be truly submissive to a woman, it's highly unnatural. This guy is intelligent, so he knows that once a woman starts pushing his boundaries that no amount of game or what TRP considers 'alpha' will change this.

A lot of people in this subreddit are confused at the idea of an alpha being cheated on, even though it happens. It's kind of brushed under the carpet because they think that if you're just good enough she'll be nice and submissive and not cheat and whatever. The truth is that women require a beta, they need a victim to leech onto, not an alpha. Women like fucking alphas but what they truly truly want is a high status beta. There's nothing more attractive to a woman than a high status beta, nothing! So this guy knows that even if he does 'put her in her place' so to speak, that she won't be satisfied. She doesn't care about this guy who's going to meet her in Amsterdam, it's a shit-test to see if he's going to be her beta. It's a lose-lose situation for an alpha guy because if he submits, then he's gone against his nature, and if he doesn't submit then he's demonstrated that he's an unfit mate.

All you can hope for if you genuinely want a LTR with a woman is to be the best beta possible, the most attractive beta. If you're a beta you still can't allow her to go, but you must submit by not dumping that slut for even considering it, let alone doing it without your permission. If you don't dump her immediately like this guy did, you're her beta. So no, it's not about her 'knowing her boundaries'. Women have no boundaries, it's about testing his boundaries.

Finally someone who lays it out there. It signals a loss of attraction. Women know fully well that vacation equals away from boyfriend/in the presence of horny men/booze and partying. In a way they've already decided to cheat.

Think about it, what's the first thing you think about when you know your going on vacation? Fucking Fucking Fucking.

Women are no different, vacation means strange cock and 'whatever happened in ___ stays in ___'

I'll share a story.

I went to my class reunion last year. I'm single (I only plate and pump and dump.).

The first night at my reunion, a Thursday, I hooked up right away with a married woman that was super hot in school and had maintained it. She didn't bring her husband. Thursday night we went back to her room and she jacked my cock and gave me head while she talked to her husband on the phone and told her kids goodnight.

The next morning I canceled my room and moved all my stuff in to her room that her husband was paying for.

We played it cool at the reunion but every afternoon and night we were back in her room getting sloppy. We weren't the only ones doing this. Every attractive woman who wasn't with their significant other was doing the same thing.

The Sunday morning brunch came around and the reunion ended. Except for those of us that were doing the reunion hump. All of the relationship people that were cheating contacted their significant others and told them we were all going on a boating trip that afternoon and it was true. There were 36 of us on a nice house boat and we were taking pictures of the ladies and the men and never anyone together. Women were posting this shit on Facebook. What they didn't post was the romance room, where we'd slip off to one after the other for some goodbye banging.

We had a blast.

Monday evening she texts me and tells me how she made up this story about falling on the boat and bruising her ass for her husband. She didn't fall on the boat, it was from me spanking her ass so hard the whole damned thing was one huge black and purple bruise.

Point is, if anyone is going away for a weekend without their partner, you can bet your ass they are doing it specifically to get away from their partner. That is a fact.

When someone "loves" you they want you with them, always, for every memorable moment in their life.

She then pulls out the "strong independent black woman" card as a response: "I then told him that I wouldn't be controlled and hated men that thought they owned me and could tell me what to do."

Ah, yes, the "GRRRRL POWER!" pressure flip. The "grown up" version of "YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!!!"

I told him I was free to see who I wanted and that I found his lack of trust in me upsetting, disrespectful and, perhaps, a sign of future abusiveness.

Oy. See this is the thing: While she is free to visit the ex, she is not entitled to a relationship with her bf on exclusively her own terms--and vice versa, of course.

I now realise that this may have been a bad thing to say.

Yes, accusing and shaming in response to your partner's apprehensiveness...not plus move. But they do it because of solipsism. She never considered how he might feel about it, if the situation was flipped.

He didn't care about my relationship and my pain - he just wanted a hookup buddy and someone to get stoned with whilst he was in Amsterdam.

Du-uh. Thus proving Pete was right the whole time, that it wasn't a good idea.

I tried calling Pete today, about an hour ago, and he actually answered! He told me that I should look to be with someone who wasn't so abusive. He said, "Please stop calling me - this is over. Have a nice trip to Amsterdam" Then he BLOCKED me!

And BOOM! goes the dynamite!

How could he do that to someone he loves?

Used to love. Before she decided to go spend a week in Hamsterdam with an ex-bf who clearly wants to fuck her.

Is he over reacting or was I?

Man this post is great. It's funny because you see so many guys on AskTRP all the time post about how their LTR is going on a long trip to Europe or another country without him and if they should be worried.

I always laugh at them and tell them if your LTR is going on a long trip to a foreign country without you, she doesn't respect you and its one giant comfort test. It's absolutely demote to plate/next behavior with no exceptions. If you let her do it and let her get away with it, you will be walked over for the rest of your life.

both men in this story knew exactly what was up but she comes to the Internet asking for advice of what went wrong.

In this day and age... Isn't the ignorance of women amazing?

Honestly, it's one of the reasons I don't hang out with them. They bore the shit out of me.

It's either ignorance // or // a projected denial of her actual plans to fuck her ex-bf shrouded in a veil of virtue signaling ("I won't be owned" ""I am capable of platonically traveling with ex-bf//another man"")

Yeah right bitch.

Either you're

A. really stupid


B. even more cunty than you appear

And to be honest, I almost always place women into one of these two categories (and let's be honest, some of them run machiavelli game at a level that deserves some fucked up sort of respect). Not because I want to, but based on experience I've found it to be appropriate. It helps me remember not to trust women's knowledge or motives.

Yes, these are the twin characteristics of a partner's behavior that really matter...

1) They have to be smart enough to know that every advance, phone number request, friend-request, ex-boyfriend contact, etc probably has alterior motives. Or not even smart, just appropriately skeptical of people...

2) Then they have to put you first.... they have to choose to respect you and never even give the impression of cheating, to you or to anyone who's interested.

"But I really thought he just wanted to be friends!!"... Nope sorry, NEXT. It doesn't really matter if she is being devious or being stupid, the result is the same...

3 upvotesmojo_juju3 years ago


By claiming/projecting number 1-- that she doesn't think there's potentially sexual advances involved (when reality she's pretending to be oblivious so that...),

it allows her to number 2-- go on the trip and bang her ex bf,

mixed in with a little of number 3 which, the flipside of which shows her true intention-- virtue signalling: where she brings in some truly despicable appeals to guilt/social shame "hey, I do what I want, you don't own me, I'm a free woman!" -- as in "Hey, I can fuck around with anyone b/c I don't actually give a shit about you"

but the dude is smart enough to know this. he's skeptical of her story because he has enough experience with women to know how devious and machiavellian they are.

I grew up with sisters, lots of aunts & female cousins... and now I get to watch a niece grow up. It's awesome to watch a 2 year old play games with peoples minds.

one must simple observe them, experience their ruthlessly self-centered nature, be scammed by them, etc. -- and how they hide it all under various pretenses -- to understand how little responsibility and respect they deserve

i mean.. they deserve respect where respect is reserved for psychopaths and machiavellian types. beyond that though, they don't offer much.

he just gave me a look that was...sarcastic, I suppose, would be the best way to describe it.

This my fellow shitlords is the reaction of a guy who's been through bullshit before. No pleading or questioning, because he already knew what was going to happen.

He didn't care about my relationship and my pain - he just wanted a hookup buddy and someone to get stoned with whilst he was in Amsterdam.

Here's the funny part. She knew exactly what was up and had fucked the guy if things would have gone down differently. But because her boyfriend was a real man she keeps up this laughable charade of pleasurable deniability. Like she had no play in the matter.

I really feel for that guy because he did the right thing but couldn't help but feel disappointment at female kind letting him down once again. She could have saved her relationship but instead tried to have it all and now she has nothing.

On a meta level this is exactly what women will get. Right now they are trying to have it all. Men are waking up and soon or later they will get nothing. All you'll have is allot of pump and dump sex slaves running on an endless supply of government sponsored birth control.

8 upvotestaracus [OP]3 years ago

Even if it is, it's a great example of how holding frame will not only get you out of bad situations before they happen, but also how the "public opinion" (the SJW subreddits opinion in this case) about your actions are completely dependable of how you handle the situation. Someone further down said:

had the boyfriend reacted emotionally when she told him about the trip, she would've felt justified in her actions and her trigger-happy slinging of the "abuser" label. What's more, she would've likely lied about the nature of her relationship with the ex and only trickle-truthed him months after she had slept with him. Instead, Pete maintained his calm and dodged a massive bullet. Kudos to him.

Had he started screaming at her or telling her not to go, every single one of the commentators would have told her to leave her abusive boyfriend.

10 upvotesInvalidity3 years ago

Normally I'd praise suspected troll posts for generating real responses from betas, but in this particular case, the author fabricated a story in such a manner to depict a woman so foul and objectionable that no matter what a man could do, not a single reader would align themselves with the woman.

It's a great example of holding frame, but it's not particularly realistic when dealing with women. Very few women will be as abrasive and direct as the woman depicted in the post. Most will gaslight and manipulate men so deceptively that it won't appear as such.

My post in that thread:

Pete did exactly the right thing, in exactly the right way.

-- You deceived him.

-- You were so dim that you didn't understand that Dave was looking for party sex. Or (and I think this is more likely) you were so little invested in your fidelity to Pete that you were happy to toddle off to Amsterdam and if a bit of something happened with Dave . . . well, it would all be down to the drugs and the holiday, right? Not REALLY your fault.

-- When caught, you tried to manipulate and emotionally blackmail Pete with imprecations that his perfectly reasonable opposition to your outrageous behavior was "abusive." (And on that subject, Pete administering a jolly good spanking on the way out the door would have been understandable even if, sadly, frowned upon these days.)

-- Now you are here seeking affirmation here, among strangers, for your folly and bad behavior.

It's this simple, young lady: You're not suited for an adult, committed relationship. You may someday be. Indeed, if you make an effort to learn from this event through some serious self-examination, it may turn out to be one of life's pivot points.

But here's the scorecard for this round: Pete acted liked a perfect gentleman. Dave acted like the sort of bounder too many men are. And you acted like a spoiled, addle-headed little brat. Learn your lesson. <<<

How did you find out that she cheated?

0 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

A week after she got back we were pretty drunk watching a movie on netflix, had a small argument regarding hanging out with ex's, and she blew up and said she slept with him while they were on zoomies.

We were living together at the time too so that was interesting. I was lucky, I had some savings and access to a truck/trailer through work and I wasn't on the lease of the house. So the next day I took a half day off work and moved into a bachelor suite mid month.

I told her that morning I would be moving out by the end of the day because I didn't want to leave her high and dry for rent if she couldn't afford to pay for my half, but that was the end of it.

And guess what? Her ex moved in with her not a month after! Hahaha I thought that was pretty entertaining. So many problems I didn't see ahead of time.

1 upvotessparkleypants3 years ago

While we may have started watching a movie, and had what started as a small argument, I was not the one who blew up initially. I also wouldn't have cheated on you had you not launched a personal verbal attack on my mother, stepfather, dead father, and myself. You also left out the part where you punched two holes in the walls, and the part where I said you if you wanted you could have sex with [a particular woman from work you were interested in]. The first hole the night you verbally attacked me and my family, the cause for me to cheat, the second after I told you I cheated. Do you remember how I told you after the first hole that hitting the wall is just an effigy for me?

It wasn't the next day that you moved out, it was nearly two months later. After we had "worked through it", after you had sex with the woman you were interested in, more importantly: after you had beat me; another key point you left out. Had you not told me that you expected me to hit you when you got in my face with your verbal attacks, I wouldn't have ever thrown the first punch. While I started the fight, you being almost a foot taller and at least 80lbs heavier, shouldn't have fought back to the degree you did. Putting me in a chokehold while wrapping your legs around me was an excellent way to end the fight. If anyone is interested, I can link the pictures to back this up.

It was the morning after that you moved out. You didn't say anything to me in the morning, you just left for work. I wouldn't have known had I not gone home on my lunch break, that's when you told me. It was when I got home from work at the end of the day that I showed you my bruises and you seemed mildly remorseful. A week later, I think it was, we were talking again. That started the on-again-off-again portion of our relationship which ended just earlier this week, because you seemingly finally understood that I don't want to be 100% monogamous.

It wasn't a month after you left that he moved into the basement room, it was nearly 6 months later. Which, timeline wise, puts the recent ending to our relationship 4 months after that fact. It's not that you didn't see them, it's that you chose to ignore them from the beginning. I told you from the start I am bad at monogamy because I am more of a nonmonogamous/polyamorous minded person, yet two years later here we are.

We need to invite this guy to our sub to hear more of his story.

The beauty of this kind of frame holding is that there is no story. Pete's gf told him she was going to Amsterdam, he asked a few questions, figured out what was going on, decided it was bullshit and unacceptable, and broke up with her.

End of story.

Women ask why men have nothing to talk about (real men). This is why - there's no drama, there's no motivations, just boundaries, violations of said boundaries, and consequences. Asking for more story is like asking for the story of why a tree fell over when it was cut down. The cut got made, the tree fell down, end of story.

I agree with you. I guess I meant that this guy probably has a wealth of beneficial knowledge in holding frame.

Has boyfriend. Decides to travel by plane for an ex because of a phone call. Shocked when boyfriend is unhappy. Shocked when ex just wanted to hook up. Outraged when boyfriend blocks her because, despite being called abusive repeatedly, loves her right?

This whole post just screams of solipsism. Even after all this, she has to question if she was wrong.

Back when I was in an LTR, my girlfriend asked me what I thought of open relationships.

I said they weren't for me.

She then asked me what I would do if my hypothetical wanting-an-open-relationship girlfriend decided that she wanted to see other guys, did I think I could control her?

I said no, but I can decide what I will put up with and what I won't.

She shut up pretty fast after that.

I had an ex mention that once.. At first I said it wasn't for me.. Things got quiet.

Then I thought about it, "she wouldn't run this risk if she didn't have someone in mind".

So the next thing I said was," I think this relationship is over ". She said I had no proof something was going on, and I just said I didn't need proof.

2 upvotesThomaskingo3 years ago

"How could he do that to someone he loves?" she asks herself without any self-reflection (until even the Internet told her that yes, you were wrong).

I think, that such trains of thought sometimes aren't the results of hamstering (psychological mechanism to protect the fragile ego in spite instincts) and instead are the results of blue pill conditioning (assumptions about nature of the premises of relationships between the sexes best describe as disneyesque). In this case the women might actually be oblivious to why going on vacation with an ex is a really bad thing from the perspective of her current bf's interest in her not getting fucked by other men. And why is this a case of blue pill conditioning and not hamstering? Well society have indoctrinated her into believing she is in full control of her desires, that men and women can be friends in a truly platonic way, that men think like women and lastly that blind trust is a prerequisite for a functioning relationship. She actually believes this shit, because that's what she's been told her entire lifetime, and she might actually be motivated by non-romatic interests in going on that vacation - I'm not saying she isn't liable to fuck the ex, but the hamstering of that would occur at a later point in time, unless she actually felt sexually attracted to him as soon as he wrote her, which by no means must necessarilybe the case. Obviously she's a fucking idiot, and her BF was a champ, but I'd guess she actually didn't understand why her bf didn't accept the blue pill tropes as unquestionably as she herself did.

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

I've always found that people asking for "blind trust" up front are usually con men/women.

No intelligent and trustworthy person asks another to trust them blindly, they realize that trust is earned.

My bet is it is hamstering on blue pill steroids, so a bit of both.

Oh my. How is this possible? She thought she had him by the balls??

Cupcake didn't come to the internet for advice, she came to hear "you go gurl", which is what she always heard about her shitty behavior before. And it's not a wake up call, it's a disappointing lack of support for this strong independent black woman from internet misogynists.

2 upvotesRedWinter883 years ago

Something I wish more guys would think about, it's not what the girls intentions are but the guys.

Ask yourself, when was the last time you wanted to spend alone time with a female who you had absolutely zero sexual interest in? I think most "Platonic" girlfriends, are girls that dudes were interested in but got delegated to the friend zone.

2 upvotesgoldnhorde3 years ago

I think we all know this chick was going to go to Amsterdam and have Dave pay for her whole trip. Dave was then going to use any and all methods in a drug filled town to get those pants off. Then she was going to go back to Pete having her cake after eating it too, with "her little Amsterdam Secret" ..... smiling to the camera like life is some freaking "sex and the city" episode.

My hat is off to Pete. Don't get me wrong, Dave is an ass. Any guy who actively goes after someone else's girl is an ass. He's not an as for her going or for her saying she would go, those are all her fault.

But we can't have it both ways either. If she is incapable of self reflection, incapable of seeing "reality" of this situation, and has such a low IQ as many posters have implied .... or een if the girl is just playing the game of being dumb to have plausible deniability and flexibility to lie during and after the facts ... Then Dave is still an ass for either A) exploiting these weaknesses or B) playing the game to support her behavior.

and I guess that is what is best about Pete. He simply did not support the behavior and moved on.

Not sure if I said what I meant, but I have seen a lot of "game" on Red Pill. And I support a lot of the concept. But always look at yourself and see if you are "playing the game" and being a dumbass who perpetuates the behaviors that are so unacceptable to us that we write about them on a daily basis .... or are you "above the game" and refuse to accept these behaviors.

Too many times, I see people who are just playing the game.

Its not a fun story if no one in the comments goes "you go gurl!". Not one person sided with her. Even called her out on her entitlement and use of the word abuser.

they are not lying when they say they "didnt cheat" or "it just happened", just because she believes her own lies dont mean you have to.

And god bless 'em. I used to be a sweet little gentleman beta pussy and "respect a woman's relationship." Now if I want something I reach out and take it. If I don't get a good hold on it, fine. But I take my shots and sometimes even get my just rewards.

She knew what was going to happen in Amsterdam as well, whether she admitted it to herself or not. By not expecting anything or acknowledging anything, she could tell herself "it just happened" and "it wasn't really even cheating".

1 upvotesWAFC3 years ago

I think this is a troll post designed to see just how far a woman can push and still get a favorable response on that shithole of a sub.

This, apparently, is too far. But not by much. I'd say if you remove the 'abuser' accusations, have her tell the bf up front about "Dave," and make the trip somewhere that isn't known (rightly or wrongly) for being a debauchery factory and the responses would be that Pete was a controlling douchebag.

1 upvotestaracus [OP]3 years ago

You are missing the point, the relevancy got very little to do with her action, the fact that he "held frame" and decided that this is not who I want as a girlfriend is what is important.

Who cares if its a troll post, be happy that you or someone learned a lesson from it.

1 upvotesecosci3 years ago

Thats why she has to know up front that you have options and will not take a slut back a woman who is aware of this would just sneak away to amesterdam she will not even mention something like this to a alpha or badboy its self explanatory get your game up and keep more bitches on stand by,. next.

i think she really had no bad intentions to sleep with her ex, she's just a gullible girl (like most of them) and thought that her bf would be cool with it... now here's my backstory, one of my exes (my very first actually) is still a good friend of mine to this day. been for 10 years. i don't look at her in a sexual way and i don't think she does at me. i make it a point every time i've been in a new relationship to point this out to my current gf and saying that if there's a problem with that then it probably won't work out.

however, i can totally understand the mistrust issues that someone could have if their partner is going to see their ex for a week. both partners would really have to have a solid trusting relationship in that case to be able to be ok with that.
