I'm a 22 y/o white guy in Southeast Asia. I spend little/no money on meeting women. 5/10 for looks. I'm pretty good in bed. Best plates for me are wealthy student girls but they're rare and they travel/move; plates vary by age and background.
My RP wake-up call was finding out that a girlfriend was still hanging out with her ex (a 26 y/o dude who'd dated her for 3 months and was now just buying her weed). I nexted her quickly and thought "good riddance". At the same time, I thought "why would this dude even bother with his ex like this?"; I was just happy I'd spent no money and not-too-much time on her.
Now I'm spinning plates. I'd say most are 6-7 in the looks (or butterface, or cute but poor English fluency and no good to hang out with). I'm usually good for 3-5 hookups before they do something which is worth a "soft next" and once my abundance is clear to them they just get other dudes. I see from social media that they're getting older handsome dudes taking them to fancy restaurants and stuff.
Again, I can't really be jealous of these dudes. I think "hey, when I'm 28 and making more money I'm gonna fuck better women than these ones I have now". At the same time, it's a bit mentally exhausting to be constantly replacing plates.
Anything you think I can do to improve retention? My next strategy is to start approaching sexier women; so I feel like I have to have a better understanding of things before I can move forward with that.
Appreciate your thoughts.
