The Spin Cycle is a shit test unique to plates because you have no chance to squash it immediately in person. Instead of dropping perfectly good plates, identify what is happening and let their hamster spin itself out.
I am not a great texter. In fact, I hate it altogether. I hate it because you cannot create tingles through texting, you can only destroy them.
That said, I have become pretty proficient at it as texting is vital to bitch management. I like to keep three plates spinning at any given time. Mostly because between work, lifting and plate drama I just don’t want or need to stretch my attention that thin. Therefore, when it comes to plates, I have come to understand the concept of the spin cycle.
If you have been reading here for a while, you will understand that in any LTR (spinning a plate for an extended period of time counts as a Long Term Relationship to me) the woman will often shit test you to ensure that you are still the capable leader worthy of her submission. In person, these shit tests are both adorable attempts at dominance and easy to squash. However, I don’t see my plates all that much, so I get my shit tests over text message.
The Spin Cycle
The female hamster is as crazy as it is unpredictable and can start spinning at any time for any reason. Maybe a bunch of her friends are starting to get engaged or married, maybe she just hung out with a SJW, perhaps she just wants to trap your commitment. It can last a couple of hours, or it can last a few days. At any rate, when you have plates that you want to keep at arm’s length the only way for them to test you is over text messaging. What is vital to know is that while this is happening there is nothing you can do to stop it, the best course of action is to feed it just enough attention to keep its interest and wait until it runs itself out of gas.
At the end of the day the reason for the test is irrelevant, the vital takeaway is that you need to reestablish your value, scarcity and dominance; but you need to do it subtly. The faster you reply and the more you attempt to communicate with her (a BP/White Knight favorite) the less attraction she feels. For a plate to want to remain a plate she needs to remember that the only way she will receive your attention is when she gives you what you want from her.
Here is an example with one of my plates, SouthernGirl. A little background on SG, I have been seeing her for just under a year and over that time I have come to understand that she can get very wound up very easily. So do I deal with some shit? Of course, but it’s nothing I can’t handle, and very clearly explains this concept:
SG -11:12- Thank you for your help with my curtains ^ _^ & willingly volunteering without me having to cuss you out or anything I had helped her hang some curtains in her new apartment because I like her and I enjoy home improvement.
TT -11:17- Yup. All that’s left is my payment Hinting at sex… duh
SG -11:19- ?? Uhh, ok…
SG -11:22- I think I need a more regular sex partner. Or at least easier to schedule with. You drive me crazy bc you won’t say when or what day. Oh, I get what this is, I helped you with your curtains and now you think you can turn this into a power play. Let the spin cycle begin.
SG -11:44- I also don’t know what ur getting at with me. I’ve made it fairly clear that I like you & I think you just kinda fuck with me. It’s not good for me. I’m high strung enough without xtra stressors. I do kind of fuck with her, but she loves it when she’s in the mood.
SG -11:49- And I rlly did get rlly sick and all u said was “gross” so whatever. If u don’t give 2 shits ab me, just don’t lead me on and ill get the hell over it and find someone just as sexy who will actually be nice to me. I don’t want to deal with this; I’ll talk to you tomorrow
TT -6:41- So you’re not free tonight? This is a dismissal of everything she said last night. She has no power over me and I won’t be broken up if she wants to leave.
SG -9:14- No
SG -9:17- Think I was pretty straightforward
SG -9:18- Seems like you are a little young for me I’m older than you…
SG -9:51- Aka CHILD Love this “insult”
TT -9:51- K The letter K is the perfect dismissal of any kind of insult over text message. Like I said, you can only lose tingles over text message so this is the safest reply without being baited into any other kind of assault.
SG -9:52- How do u not get a kick out of that insult
SG -9:53- heh heh
SG -10:00- I am being serious ab the other stuff tho. I like you but I think I am getting too old for this crap. & you don’t acknowledge what I’m saying which kind of perpetuates the sentiment. Which if I had my way you’d just quit being a dick and I could get laid.
TT -10:01- we talk when im over Ok, I actually like her, not enough to promote, but I do. So I tried to extend an olive branch.
SG -10:03- are you saying that you want to talk to me about this in person? Girl doesn’t really give me a chance to respond.
SG -10:20- what I thought
SG -10:23- I think ur using me for sex. Im not a free prostitute. I’m not even slutty, rlly. It won’t work. Gnite.
SG -10:33- Also I don’t mean that as an accusation that is rlly what I think & whi I don’t think I should see u anymore. I can’t keep putting myself in that situation it takes too much out of me. & if you have nothing to say to that ill assume it’s true. Gnite for real this time. Fuck this, I’ll wait another day
SG -8:03- I can’t decide if I’m being paranoid & ur not helping The hamster is starting to slow down, SouthernGirls rational brain is starting to realize what happened. Time to respond.
TT -8:34- I think you’re being a little paranoid
TT -8:34- Aren’t you on or near your period?
SG -8:45- Nope it came and went. Quit dodging the question.
SG -9:37- I get a lil cray toward the end of winter but as a female I reserve that right @ all times. Either way I refuse to sleep with you as long as u refuse to answer This is a last ditch effort to win the “argument”. However, I can sense the end of it because of her admission of craziness so she can get a response.
TT -11:07- Nobody ever gets the right to be crazy
TT -11:07- And what was the question PRO TIP – Always say less than necessary, this second message was too much. It didn’t end up hurting me that much but it very easily could have
SG -11:57- I refuse to cooperate with someone so uncooperative
SG -12:01- honestly you were being an uncooperative pain in the ass so I started being one too. The question was whether you were using me for sex, which I don’t really give a shit at this point. I’m just tired of you not answering simple fucking questions. You know you do it too Fuck, I think I blew it. Time to start looking for a new plate…
SG -4:08- You still think I’m being crazy don’t you Never mind
SG -4:09- You can come over tonight if you want I’m over it Giggity
SG -4:09- If ppl would just bend to my will…
SG -4:45- I think the longer I go without having sex the crazier I get and then its rlly counterproductive The spin cycle has finished, she’s mine again
TT -5:24- Tomorrow night then
When I first started spinning plates, I would blow this kind of shit off and dump perfectly good plates because I thought that explosion was the end of it. What I should’ve realized is that she wasn’t looking to dump me or intentionally piss me off. She has no control over her hamster and it’s not her fault for wanting more. What she wanted was for me to confirm my place in her world.
So do I take the occasional shit test? You know it. I also understand that it’s easier for me to deal with the occasional shit test that it would be for me to replace a long term plate, especially a hot one that I’ve been with for nearly a year. If you remain strong she won’t need anything more.
