Value shit test?

Reddit View
October 20, 2019

I was on a business trip this week and was catching up on some reading. Mainly I was reading WISNIFG and The Way of the Superior Man. But also some of MRP (like the recent post on Initiate Often, Confident Always). And it occurs to me I'm really failing big time on the initiating and gaming front. So I decide on my return I shall start to work on fixing it.

Get home from the trip, and immediately picked up my game, kino, affection etc. Then went to play with the kids for a while, wrestling / boystrous games (I find these great to reset boundaries after my return from a trip... things usually slip on that front when I'm away). I put the kids to bed and then enjoy a glass of wine with the wife.

She starts telling me how hard her week has been and how tired she is etc etc, so I turn on the comfort. I listen, sympathise, give affection, etc etc. Throw in a few anti-kid jokes "little monsers", "don't worry, daddy's home" kind of stuff. Past beta me more beta me would have dealt with this SO badly... embarrasingly so. I'd have presumed she was playing the "I'm tired" card to take sex off the table... so would have reacted with a comparison of how tough my trip was versus her week at home. I know, cringeworthy. Anyway, new me turns on comfort. After that the conversation moves on to more light hearted humor etc.

A little later, she randomly brings up a camera I own. It happens to be in view of where we are sitting. She says "You know what, that camera alone cost you more than my engagement ring". She has brought up this many times, and previously I'd probably have sighed, got annoyed, tried to justify it "I had more money when I bought the camera compared to when we got engaged", or some complete bullshit like that. This night, I STFU to think. I'm not triggered this time, I just don't really have a response straight off the top of my head. While in STFU mode, she repeats it in a slightly different way, something like "imagine that, more money on a camera than my engagment ring, I was robbed!", just to make sure I heard I guess! But in my STFU mode I had thought to myself "hey, I actually don't give a fuck. Regardless of the facts, it's my money, and if I want to spend it on a 3 grand stripper I fucking well will". So I just glanced back, smiled cheekily, and nodded in agreement. Discussion over, I move the conversation on to something else.

It seemed to work, she was horny as hell later and let's just say we had a good night (cause and effect?). Either way, feedback on if there's a better way to handle these "value shit tests", or even what type of shit test is this?

I know this is meant to be the "kinder" zone of MRP, but please don't hold back.

This shit test comes up regularly for me, generally in and around shark week. Next time I am so using this line!

that camera alone cost more than my

She's comparing herself to the camera. Help her out.

"I value simplicity ...

Ever notice how easy it is to turn that camera on?"

Yeah shit test. The usual works: agree and amplify, ignore, or nuke if needed etc . This one was nothing. I’d say shit like “I know isn’t that awesome? I always knew I wanted to be savvy with what I spend money on” Or “I know, that camera is AMAZING! I should use it to take more pics/videos of your hot body.”

Remember shit tests must be viewed as signs of interest and an opportunity to charm her through wittiness and cockiness. Make her wet with your IDGAF attitude.

I like the playing up of the camera type response, "Gotta have high def to get awesome pics of your hot ass!"

The temptation to DEER is always difficult when them ho's get yo pride involved. In those moments, just remember what uncle Marcellus said...

I'm over here thinking: is this guy just a retard or clueless?

"Yeah babe, it's a really nice expensive camera. Let's see what it can do."

You missed an opportunity to agree, amplify, and fuck.

I can't believe how many guys step on their own dicks when it comes to seeing great opportunities to turn up DEVI.

[–]dolanthesemicolon[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Probably a bit of both! Yeah, ok, I see how I can turn this up a bit.

[–]RoccoPinkman4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

If I paid 3k for a stripper I’d need her to have at least 3 tits and maybe a shiatsu massage feature on her pussy, I’d also like her to be able to stack the dish washer correctly.

Apply within.

“Hell yes that thing was expensive. How else am I going to record me nailing you from behind in high def?”

Get a gun that costs more than the ring next time. Cameras are gay as fuck.

[–]dolanthesemicolon[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I like that, play up the camera. Nice one.

[–]Hobbitrabbit1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Every one of my rifles cost more than my wife's ring lol. Guns fucking rock

A few nights ago I was watching a football match live on TV when my wife came downstairs.

She was wearing a silk robe. She stood in front of me and dropped the robe onto the floor, leaving her in nothing but black lace underwear.

"Come to bed" she said.

"I'm watching match" I replied.

"But I want to have sex... You can record that and watch it later", she said.

"That's a great idea", I said, "you go upstairs and set up the camera.. I'll be up as soon as the game is over."

Woulda been an excellent opportunity to start taking some edgy photos! Snap one, "look at that face." "Smile for this next one" "show daddy some those titties" "take off your shirt".....

[–]simbarlionRed Beret1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

she repeats it

Shes fishing for comfort my autistic friend.

Its not about the camera or the ring, its a covert message you don't value her.

You might have "turned on the comfort" but it was the wrong tap. Kiss on the head, pat on the ass was all she needed. Maybe a reminder the captain has "got this" - now he's back from being AWOL.

This captain has been drunk for many many years! Cheers for the feedback.

Now you’ve got me trying to think up camera based innuendo....

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
