I think I just went full Machiavelli.

May 18, 2014

Me: "Hey you ever have a fwb?"

Her: "lol What?"

M: "I asked for an answer, not a reaction."

H: I don't even know what fwb means."

M: I take it you're confused; basically we bang each other, have no feelings for one another, and then don't tell anyone about it.

H: Why are you bringing this up?

M: I'm curious; why do you think I am?

H: I asked first.

M: So answer first.

H: Well the answer is hell no to both propositions.

M: What propositions?

TRP has taught me how to be more manipulative, as well as how to maintain frame. In my BP days I would have fucked this situation up beyond repair, but now I've managed to...

  • Have the courage and mindset to ask for this kind of thing at all.
  • Play mindgames and control the conversation.
  • Most importantly, I controlled the exchange to the point where nothing negative can be traced back to me, and where she looks like the egotistical bitch she is for rejecting me before I proposed anything.

Only place to go is up; thanks guys.

I don't really see how this makes you Machiavellan. You blatantly stated your intentions without much concealment, you got rejected hard for being a bit too blunt.

She saw right through OP, which admittedly wasn't very difficult since his cards were on the table from the start.

OP, it's not manipulation if you don't get what you want. You wanted a fwb, you certainly didn't get that. Then you try and hamster all that rejection away.

You're so far gone you think you were in control of the whole conversation. In reality, when she said jump, you asked how high. Take notes OP, she pulled some serious Machiavelli shit on you.

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