"You've really hardened as a person"

April 19, 2017

Wife said this to me last night through tears because I wouldn't apologise for cracking a joke the other day at dinner in front of her in-laws that 'upset' her.

I felt like punching the air in delight when she said that.

3 months ago before I discovered this sub, beta me would have apologised profusely for something I shouldn't have apologised for.

What was the joke?

[–]canadaleaf140 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

asking the important questions!

Be aware when tears are flowing, feelz are erupting in the wrong direction as "trust of you" is shattering like glass You add comfort with physical hug and apaologize

Fist pump, may not be in this case

If they cry, they care. Long as he didnt kill the dog...

Hugs if she deserves them, let is pass through her if manipulative.

Fuck brothers, youd think being red pilled was fine, so long as she doesnt cry.

Also, everyone giving so much focus on what she says... Since when?

Best question, what was she like afterwards? How she acts matters here, not a few tears and some mean words

I see the title as the elephant in the room, then comes the tears

Until the OP tells what he said we are pissing in a fan. The difference altogether is that he needs to identify a shit test, a comfort test, or an SO that sincerely is feeling ganged up on

I could actually give ten fucks what he does, thinks or says It's on him

spot on except don't apologize. Say that "upon reflection, that joke may have been ill-timed" if it truly was bad form. If she's just being feelzy, then a hug and light A&A, something like "I'm so sorry ... That you and your parents are such lightweights that you can't handle a joke. How many whaaaaambulances should I call?".

A few "assholes" are fine but there's gotta be some beta comfort thrown in there

AKA ... Comfort test

I sense a possible Redpill Rambo.


[–]BluepillProfessorMod / Red Beret3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

So..your wife validated you as the big strong heartless man and that is worth celebrating? I can certainly see how it could be worth celebrating but I'm not sure you do so you need a reality check.

Asshole game works for about 6 months as athol kay documented some time ago.

The proof is in the pudding.

If he's hard with her, but not with the world, then he's just a bully. If he's hard with the world too, then he's a rock she can cling to no matter the storm.

I don't know if the goal of MRP is to make your SO cry. Now sometimes the hamster can run rampant because of the smallest slight - and that you can fucking ignore.

On the other hand making jokes at the expense of your SO in front of others is juvenile. I can say this because I have been there and done that. Actually MRP has help me to understand how I am plugging into the wrong Feelz in that instace. IDGAF and being an asshole are not the same thing.

Any pussy can make a woman cry with words, you'll be a man when you can make a woman stop crying with only your silence and presence - because you are the fucking rock.

What was the joke?

Why was she mad?

What conversations did you have about it?

Need more context here.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Though I agree with the others generally - there are times for some softened comfort, but tread lightly - however, the success or failure in her comment depends a lot on how soft (or not) you were before you hardened. And how quickly you hardened. And did you harden into a lifeless, angry, asshole , or a carefree, spirited, jerkboy? Need dat context yo

I know which direction wifey will take it if he lets her. This is 100% frame. Does op have it?

"I must have caught a glimpse of your ass when you bent over to empty the dryer. That always gets me hard" <boink>

[–]InChargeManRed Beret0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

OP PMed me the joke he told the in-laws (I assume for plausible deniability):

Why are women like diapers?

Because they are usually full of shit but luckily disposable.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

is she about to get on the rag? this shit happens a lot before a period.

I also would have taken it as a compliment

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