[FR] The Beard Trim

June 18, 2018

One of the things I like to do is to go out weekly or bi-weekly to get a beard trim. It's cheap, gets me out of the house, I look good afterward, all good things. There are a large number of stylists at the place where I go, and over the past year I've gotten to meet each of them as it's random who I get. They all have interesting personalities and stories.

So recently I went there and had a beard trim, and the stylist was a smokeshow (HB8), as stylists usually are. Blonde, maybe around 24 or so. I've friend-zoned her early on but we still chat, as much as you can chat in 20 minutes while you have someone with a razor near your neck.

Last I talked to her oh about six months ago she was getting out of a relationship from her toxic loser boyfriend with a new guy, who "helped her" out of her last relationship by sleeping with her. But this most recent time it was just a flurry of red pill truth coming out of this girl.

She's chatting away, and I'm going "Mmmm hmmm" "Yeah" "And then what" because what else can I say without getting beard hair in my mouth.

First she told me about this concert that she wanted her male non-exclusive friend to go with, but he didn't go, presumably because he is a loser. So she went with her friends. Had a blast, apparently.

Then she was sad (tm) that her male friend, who has not given her the title of girlfriend and being "in a relationship", was not there, so she was bawling her eyes out.

Then she was mad, so she screwed one of his friends the following night when she blacked out after being drunk. "But he and I had a chat to see what we remembered, and it totally wasn't all on him. Especially the stuff that we did - that was all me."

"Mmm hmmm."

"And one of his other friends was there so I know for sure that he knows that I slept with this guy. After all, we're not exclusive." - said with a flip of her hair and a bit of anger.

"Mmmm hmmm. So then what?"

So then what apparently happened is that this guy who she had been seeing freaks out, buys her roses, and then tells her he loves her the next day. But she looked disgusted and angry by it. She didn't say it back.

And of course, the not-boyfriend still "doesn't know what he wants" and did not give her exclusivity. Stupidly smart, this guy. I would say that he's spinning plates (and really, never LTR a hairdresser), but he fell into the Beta Abyss at the end. He apparently is doing all sorts of DLV things right now.

"So where are you at now?"

"I've told him I'm happy being single. If he can't get his act together, I'm fine with that." She was all pissed off when she said this too.

Then she asks me if I have kids. Yep, I do have munchkins.

Afterward I looked in the mirror. Damn, the beard looks good. Another good trip.

TL'DR: Beard trims make your beard look good. CC. AWALT. Don't be surprised by anything anymore. Don't be a beta.

Hairdressers, strippers, redheads, and of course anyone named Tiffany should never get the LTR badge.

The best indirect red lessons of mine all came from casual friendships with girls (usually those proximate to my plates or LTR). If you'll lend a disinterested or perceived non judgmental ear, you'll get the real truth.

Can get surreal hearing a story that could have been about you, especially if you were totally oblivious at the time.

The thing about those rules is they never work, and lull guys into a false sense of security.

[–]itiswr1tten2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Meant as a joke but I would argue it's still good advice statistically

[–]Rian_Stone5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Meh, I've heard. More slut stories from the Mormons than I have from the tattoo up west coast chicks

[–]Reach1803 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

"Dog Bites Man" stories don't get told.

Can verify that Southern Mormon girls are strangely DTF, but with a prude wrapper. Some kind of needy thing. Nothing madder/sadder than not providing them D when they want it. Seriously.

Like wrestling, no real rules, and a great show if you watch closely. Free for all is the norm.

To entertain is the only rule

Shit. Ah well.

There is great power in disinterestedness.

If you don't care very much, nexting a woman with even the mildest red flag is a piece of cake. If a plate cramps your style in ANY way, it's not worth the effort.

Always be the prize.

In any relationship, the person with the most power is the one who needs the other the least. - https://therationalmale.com/2011/08/19/the-cardinal-rule-of-relationships/

This is a primo example of Marry, Fuck, Kill. Ex Boyfriend is Fuck, Fun Artist guy is Marry, and White Collar Guy is Kill.

Honestly, it's like a view into the Matrix when women start telling these stories. When you hear them, you're like, "Whoa."

And yeah, I don't even see the code anymore.

Looks like I wasted my time number closing the stripper. Shit. Ah well.

The amount I learned about my 25 year old blonde travel buddy during my week in Italy is staggering. Modern American girls obsessed with the Bachelorette are incredibly broken and deluded. Its sad in many ways.

The short version of it is the last guy she dated and still isn't over (2+ years), went to Australia to play basketball, fucked a waitress the first night - her point being that she was expecting it, but wanted to break up first. She says she doesn't really hook up, but it's a coin-flip on whether you'd believe it or not. I wouldn't.

The point for you lot at askMRP being this - if you're going to fuck other women but want to maintain your existing relationships, don't act like a bitch and blab about it. STFU means having the fortitude to bear your own burdens. Your indiscretions should be discrete. Feel bad for the girl - pretty sure she'd still happily be within him if she didn't know.

Women don't want to know, especially if they expect it - so bear those burdens.

Thanks for this post, because I didn't have anywhere else where that thought belong.

Only women admit their cheats.

She asks you because she knows, not because she wants to know.

Boys tell stories, real men own it to the grave. No other option.

[–]Rian_Stone3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Why not in mrp proper?

[–]SteelSharpensSteel[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I can crosspost it. Sometimes I have too high standards for the main sub.

[–]Rian_Stone5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

We keep it simple,

no question mark? Good

Does it have a lesson? Good

razor near your neck.

Great opener to break into that "lower energy" vibe. Last time I told the wife I was going to slap her around (playfully) she goes "maybe I'd like that".

If she's your go-to beard girl maybe not a good candidate for catch and release...otherwise that's a story you can # close with.

"Sounds like you have a lot of drama going on...gimme a call if you ever want some straight up fun."

[–]SuperCrazy072 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That's where I thought the OP was going with this.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

I guess it's nice that some bitch confirmed TRP (as if we didn't know it was true already) but I don't understand why you pay to be the emotional tampon of a random stylist.

There is a reason why I go to a male only barbershop: I don't hear some female yapping in my ear for half an hour.

[–]Senor_Martillo4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Hmm. I have a hair stylist who is a solid 8. With bright pink hair and a pit bull that hangs around the shop. Without a doubt in the danger zone of the hot/crazy matrix.

I pay her rather than some dude because it’s simply much more enjoyable to have her tits and her coconut perfume in my face for 30 minutes vs. a man.

Now, if she made a habit of vomiting feelz on me, I might have to reconsider.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That I gotta agree with. I used to go to a unisex hairsalon before upgraded my style and one of the most enjoyable thing was getting my hair washed while having tits in my face.

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

I didn't mention the free (normally $10) shoulder and neck massage that the ladies give.

It pays to be attractive.

[–]officerkondo0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I’ve friend-zoned her early on
