    All of the "I want motivated men" talk is basically just hamster for "I want someone who can earn money for me". Women will sometimes settle short term on someone who isn't currently wealthy as long as they have prospect of becoming wealthy long term. Even if he is currently a bum you can bet if they knew he'd be in a 5 figure job in 5 years time women would be lining up.

    [–]CSMastermind 25 points26 points  (10 children)

    5 figure job

    That's not exactly an accomplishment .....

    [–]sidewalkchalked 56 points57 points  (0 children)

    I'm a ten-thousandaire and I disagree.

    [–]trped 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Depends where you live. In Europe €60k+ is pretty good.

    [–]asdfghjkltyu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I think I confused the '5, 6" figures stuff.

    [–]Lionstrong 8 points9 points  (4 children)

    Sorry, not everybody can get a 6 figure job.

    [–]CSMastermind 8 points9 points  (2 children)

    I understand that, I'm just saying 5 figures is a pretty low threshold. Making $10,000 / year is something everyone should be able to do. And not something I think people would be lining up for.

    [–]1independentmale 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    You'd be surprised. I see a lot of hot acquaintances on Facebook dating complete bums who are barely holding down part time jobs.

    [–]CSMastermind 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Looks, Money, Status right? I'd assume they aren't dating those guys for their money.

    [–]ont_anon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Agreed, but no one should expect to be taken seriously if they live in a first-world country and brag about/announce that they're making a 5 figure job. I mean, yes, making $99,999/year is impressive, but most 5 figure earners aren't in that part of the stratosphere.

    [–]dardanmm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Yeah I was agreeing with her about how he has no motivation and that would be turn off for me as well if a woman was that lazy - but now it's all about the money. This guy has the exact same motivation/ambition yet now she wants back in. Not a gold digger my ass.

    [–]A_Thousand 333 points334 points  (44 children)

    I dated him for 10 months when I thought he was penniless, proof I'm not a fucking gold-digger.

    LOL! Please tell me this is a troll. How delusional can this bitch be? She proved the exact opposite of that!

    He could've said something, ANYTHING during our break up when I was explaining my doubts about our relationship. Instead he said nothing, and now he refuses to talk to me. It makes absolutely no sense.

    Why would he? You just outed yourself as a gold digger. What is he going to say? "Please stay with me, you're wrong, I'm filthy rich!"

    This is just too good to be true. It must be a troll.

    [–]Transmigratory 76 points77 points  (30 children)

    Hamsters be hamsterin'.

    No matter how exposed we are to them, they have the natural propensity to shock us.

    [–]Position5hero 34 points35 points  (29 children)

    Throw me any single situation and I'll hamster it for you, as well as a woman could, or better.

    Just go ahead. Anything.

    Once you spend a lot of time with women, you understand how they see the world.

    This is the final step in TRP man- is learning to see through their eyes.

    Once you do that- you made it. They have nothing on you at all.

    [–]KaribouLouDied 16 points17 points  (26 children)

    I got one:

    man texted female cousin, your woman doesn't know about this cousin and thinks you are cheating.

    aaaannnddd GO!

    [–]1independentmale 74 points75 points  (23 children)

    This actually happened to me. Wife accused me of cheating on her with my cousin. I shot back, "You have got to be fucking kidding me. Did you forget she's my COUSIN?!" She backed off but then hamstered that I must want to leave her for someone that's like my cousin because "you two get along so well."

    Bitch accused me of cheating for years. I never did, true to my word I was faithful to her even though I had every reason to not be. When I finally sent her packing the truth came out, she confessed to an affair.

    [–]AlphaAccountant 103 points104 points  (3 children)

    Projection. She did it so you must have. I think it's a way of living with the guilt.

    [–]teeelo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Ah, if I may:

    She accused him of cheating in the hidden hopes that he actually was, so he would get the blame for ending the relationship as 'The Cheater' Then she not only had an easy way out, but a back up man as well.

    Very underhanded shit there.

    [–]gensyms 81 points82 points  (12 children)

    Bitch accused me of cheating for years. I never did

    I didn't even have to read the rest of the paragraph to know she was cheating.

    [–]MardGeer 44 points45 points  (10 children)

    so when a woman accuses you of cheating, she is likely to be cheating on you? damn dude, thats a heavy lesson, i'm gonna log that into things to look out for.

    [–]alclarkey 36 points37 points  (5 children)

    It's called projection. Psych 101, you are more likely to believe a person is committing a crime/injustice if you yourself are guilty of said crime.

    [–]I3luee 5 points6 points  (4 children)

    This seems EXTREMELY useful. Where could I read more about similar things? Thanks in advance.

    [–]6footdeeponice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Another good one to look up is confirmation bias.

    It will explain a lot about yourself and those around you.

    [–]Workchoices 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    Like gensyms, I didnt even finish reading the paragraph, I already knew how it ended. I actually had to go back and reread it to make sure my assumption was correct.

    If a woman accuses you of cheating constantly and is always paranoid and jealous, she is either mentally ill, or cheating herself.

    The hamster works like this " It's so easy for me to do it and get away with it, and things haven't been great lately [which is why I am cheating after all, I am not the bad guy here!] things must be shit because he is cheating on me!"

    [–]Wraithwain 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I wish I knew these things I know now over a year ago. Experience is the best and worst teacher, and I wish I had learned these beforehand.

    Might have helped save myself plenty of frustration from one particular person. Ah, regrets.

    [–]systemshock869 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    My dad accuses my mom of hiding money.. guess who's been actually hiding money for years?

    It's a human thing.

    [–]1thrownaway_MGTOW 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    Bitch accused me of cheating for years.

    And why did she do that?

    Because of this:

    When I finally sent her packing the truth came out, she confessed to an affair.

    Dude, she had more than one on the side.

    EDIT: Also... though she never admitted it, she got fucked by HER cousin(s), so... just sayin.

    [–]GhostOfAladdin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    She was subconsciously telling you what SHE had done.

    It would be beautiful if a man could take half of a cheating wife's stuff.

    [–]Position5hero 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    What you even have to hapmster here

    Nothing

    'That my cousin girl I ain't trying to have kids with flippers for feet'

    [–]1pcadrian 17 points18 points  (4 children)

    Fuck that goddigger part hamstering was absolutely hysterical. I wouldn't be surprised if this was true though. I've been on dates with a few chicks from my school lately, and they are so out of touch with reality it hurts.

    [–]1thrownaway_MGTOW 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    I dated him for 10 months when I thought he was penniless, proof I'm not a fucking gold-digger.

    LOL! Please tell me this is a troll. How delusional can this bitch be? She proved the exact opposite of that!

    How delusional... well she boxes around her various motives and then simply doesn't SEE what she herself wrote about what they were, to wit HERE is the reason (in her own words) why SHE broke up with HIM:

    I have Facebook and am on it every day, usually when work is slow. Lately my newsfeed has been filled with my peers getting married, buying houses, having babies, and other various accolades. I can't help but feel jealous by this; it seems like everyone but me is making significant gains in their lives and relationships. Three weeks ago, after seeing a girl I knew from high school buy her 3rd property with her husband, it felt like my relationship with Will was juvenile and had no future.

    The next time I was over at Will's (after he served me potato soup for dinner and was torrenting a documentary for us to watch later) I ended the relationship. I was perfectly honest about everything - he was a great guy, I loved him and his personality, but I felt he lacked career/life ambition and we wanted different things for the future. He sat and listened to everything, seemingly unmoved by it. When I finished talking, he said "fine by me" and asked me to leave. I went to hug him on my way out, instead he just guided me out the door and slammed it shut behind him.

    Shes doesn't realize it... but she definitely "outed" herself -- with an ultimatim/shit-test no less -- and showed her true colors as being a very impatient, insecure, materialistic, gold-digging, status-seeking and controlling bitch.

    ROTFLMAO

    EDIT: BTW, I rather doubt that he "slammed" the door... he probably just closed it, and was shaking his head and *sighing* while doing so, humming "another one bites the dust... oh well"... then he started whistling and thinking about whether he wanted to grill a steak or BBQ ribs for dinner? ('Cause that's what I'd be doing.)


    This is just too good to be true. It must be a troll.

    Truth is stranger than fiction some times. This isn't all that much different than things I've experienced personally. She's pretty darned typical, almost a cliche, about the only thing that is somewhat exceptional is that she lasted a whole 10 months before throwing her little tantrum, it usually happens a lot sooner than that.

    [–]OsoFeo 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    This is just too good to be true. It must be a troll.

    There must be some hamster version of Poe's Law.

    [–]SomebodyCool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Please tell me this is a troll.

    It's a troll. The first paragraph is a concise barrage of facts about him, sprinkled with the occasional fashion comment - it's what a dude with little knowledge of women would write to pretend to be a woman. It's all facts facts facts, deductions from facts, factual descriptions. This is not how the vast, vast majority of girls write in general, and especially not about a relationship that has just ended in an upsetting way. It's a troll, and a very obvious one.

    [–]RedPill115 70 points71 points  (6 children)

    Surprisingly, the commentators rip her to shreds.

    She violated the golden rule of gold digger club - you never talk about gold digger club.

    I think that's why she's being attacked. Had she phrased it as vague "feelings" without being obvious that it was actually money, she would have gotten support despite it actually being the same story about money.

    That being said, women in general also care a lot less about money than they used to. It's easier for women to critisize other women because they don't care as much. All of the players I know - ALL of them - are either poor or have money but live like they're poor. Guys with jobs who aren't as entertaining aren't getting to be players. (Not saying it's that way everywhere).

    Exactly, fake or not, had she (he?) been able to frame this more about trust and lying then she would have gotten sympathizers in droves.

    [–]humankin 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    Seems to be about scarcity of positive attributes. BB is so common that it doesn't do shit to attract pre-wall women. How effective is AF in poor countries? I hear stories of American and European men marrying foreign women way above their native SMV. Those women could be with much more alpha men.

    This has no effect on how men need to act but it could be that the specific sexual strategies used in TRP are really only applicable in the Western world even if the core insights are universally applicable e.g. hypergamy.

    [–]RedPill115 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    "alpha" is a term that is subjective to your environment. I don't think foreign women are looking for nearly as much sociopathic behavior as american girls are in order to rank highly on their alpha scale.

    [–]tallwheel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    So much this. I wasn't surprised by the comments either.

    [–]Position5hero 189 points190 points  (22 children)

    significant gains in their lives and relationships.

    Red flag : Measures her value in terms of how wealthy a man she can marry.

    Anyways good for will.

    Odds are he flashes the money when he wants a one night stand, and keeps it under wraps for LTR.

    What a trooper

    [–]erqos 161 points162 points  (12 children)

    Odds are he flashes the money when he wants a one night stand, and keeps it under wraps for LTR.

    TL;DR: Dude has abundance mentality because he's rich; weeds out golddiggers by serving watery potato soup for dinner and watching artsy documentaries for entertainment.

    [–]KaribouLouDied 139 points140 points  (11 children)

    Dude's a fucking TRP genius.

    [–]AlphaAccountant 16 points17 points  (10 children)

    The caveat, which few have spoken about, is that, at least from her side of the story, he seems like a loser. If TRP is about bettering yourself, he clearly omits this trait, since he's already "made it".

    [–]1Modified_Hackware 90 points91 points  (0 children)

    He drives what he likes, plays guitar and shit tests women, of which there have been more than a few.

    He seems just fine to me.

    [–]BDRyan 42 points43 points  (0 children)

    I disagree. He's obviously social enough and in good enough shape to attract a woman who would be in a relationship with him. Then he has at least two close friends who spend enough time with him to know what his finances are.

    Then he spends his time living his life the way he wants and is happy doing so. Is unapologetic when his girlfriend tries to chastise him for it.

    Even though he may or may not have had to earn his wealth, who really knows what went on that he was left it, the fact stands that even if he didn't have the money he's comfortable with his life.

    I think he's already "Made it" and just measures it a different way than most of us might.

    [–]OsoFeo 17 points18 points  (4 children)

    Who cares what she thinks? Being a man is doing what makes you happy, not your Facebook "friends".

    I have a 6-year-old car that is nothing stylish but gets decent gas mileage and is great for my dogs, and most importantly, it's paid for. I own my non-mansion-sized house outright (in a decent neighborhood in a tight coastal US housing market). I don't necessarily love my job, which some might perceive as somewhat unsexy, but it pays well while having flexible hours and it beats 95% of other jobs available to most men.

    In short, fuck what other people think.

    [–]Redditor042 5 points6 points  (3 children)

    Can I ask what your job is?

    (20, and trying to find something worth striving toward)

    [–]OsoFeo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Fear of doxxing prevents me from going into specifics. In any case, I would not counsel a younger man to follow my career path (I'm 47), since by the time you acquired the necessary training and experience the market would probably be very different.

    However: if you want career advice, I would recommend learning a trade that will always be needed and can't be offshored. Plumbing is a good example. This is what I really wish I had done.

    Edit: outsourced -> offshored. My brain doesn't always function in the morning.

    [–]no_game_player 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Counterpoint: although my field can be outsourced (offshored is more the term you're looking for here), this also gives me the freedom to look ahead to a future where I can work from anywhere. I'm not there yet, but more because of other issues with my life (currently helping out family which requires a physical presence) than because of career issues.

    But I do compete in a global marketplace more so than do other fields. There's still opportunity on both sides of that though: there's plenty of cube jobs that still require butt-in-chair, and that aspect can't be offshored. I hate that shit though, so it's not the side I go for. But if a person wants a comfortable, easy job, and is willing to give up a substantial amount of their time and freedom to do so, then it's a simple route.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    [–]TRP-Gunsmith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    CNC Operator/Engineer. Make bank, make stuff, can work hours that fit the rest of your life because most shops worth a shit are 24/7/365 if they want to pay the bills and buy more machines. Welder is another one. If you're into the outdoors you can make a shitload doing on the spot heavy equipment repair, you just gotta be willing to go off-road and have the vehicle to do it.

    [–]humankin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Done right, it's counter-signalling his relationship value.

    [–]17 Endorsed ContributorHumanSockPuppet 40 points41 points  (0 children)

    Will is basically using the strategy I plan on using when I come into my own wealth. It's fun to see the strategy it being put to use (and to see it working perfectly).

    I'm convinced that this is the only real way to live as a wealthy man whose goal it is to filter quality, self-actualizing women from the gold-digging hamster marathon runners who think of themselves as open-minded and compassionate, but who prove to be less-so when the time comes to turn words into action.

      [–]1aguy01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Yea that's the most fucked up thing. I've had multiple girls just start talking about how many likes their selfies get verse how many likes their group photos get verse their posts verse random pictures and they aren't even honest, they embellish the numbers. These women are garbage.

        What gold digging sluts will never understand is that, usually, men are rich because they live frugal lives.

        See, this is solipsism gone wild here. She looked at this man through the prism of how SHE would live her life if SHE had a bunch of money. She would be spending like a drunken sailor on designer beach condos, flashy cars, Louis Vuitton handbags, make-up, designer clothes, and a closet full of shoes. She would make it very obvious to everyone around her that she had money.

        Men usually feel no such compulsions. We may splurge on a home theater or maybe a nicer car, but when a rich MAN spends money, he's spending it on things/occasions that provide utility to him. And he sure isn't spending whimsically on the desires of some slut simply because she granted access to the holes between her legs.

        [–]Ojisan1 56 points57 points  (3 children)

        Great quote from an old Simpsons episode, maybe early 2000s. Bill Gates was one of the characters and he said, "Hey - I didn't get rich by writing a lot of checks."

        [AFTER she found out he was loaded] She looked [back again] at this man through the prism of how SHE would live her life if SHE had a bunch of money.

        Ding ding ding.

        She was perfectly fine with ditching him (her choice remember), even bitching about him and his "lack of ambition/avarice" afterwards behind his frigging back to his friends... until.

        Yeah... she's a "status-display" bitch. He's entirely the opposite.

        [–]widec 79 points80 points  (36 children)

        And all that money the men save go towards investments, which make their fortune grow even more. I dream of one day (hopefully sooner than later) living off the interest of my investments while keeping that original capital intact.

        They're taking about investments like businesses and start ups where they get real equity. Idk about stocks.

        [–]should_ 7 points8 points  (19 children)

        Yeah that's what I meant. Not really into stocks as much as real estate and business; more reliable capital.

        [–]Dathisofegypt 7 points8 points  (12 children)

        I would check out r/investing. And get an account with vanguard while also contributing your max to a IRA. If your interested in investing in a startup I would look around for entrepreneurs in your area and only invest in those you truly believe in and can do background information on.

        [–]should_ 4 points5 points  (5 children)

        Many thanks.

        I actually have an IRA account with T Rowe Price, just because their retirement stock is the lowest management fee for my target year, and Vanguard is $20/yr from what I understand. But when one's IRA reaches $10k then Vanguard waves the $20, so my game plan is to sell it and buy into Vanguard when I reach that amount, since they have consistently good funds from what I can tell.

        Can't max out since I'm barely paying groceries, but I'm putting a lot a month anyway.

        [–]I_FUCK_UP_RECIPES 4 points5 points  (3 children)

        Investor here: my stock portfolio has killed it the last 5 years, tripling in value. My real estate portfolio has done OK--up ~30%. With some extra cash I had, I bought equity in a friend's startup; they were "in the process of selling it" for two years and eventually just gave up. Total loss of investment.

        Stocks kick ass if you're not a dumbass about them.

        [–]2alisonstone 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        Historically stocks, on average, have higher returns than real estate with lower risk. That doesn't mean that real estate is a bad way to make money. I know people who made far more money on real estate than they can if they invested in stocks. But that it is mostly because of their labor. I have a cousin that buys crappy homes, renovates them, and then sells them. He might make 20% returns each time he does it, but the actual passive component of the returns are pretty small. I can't replicate it because I don't have his skill set and I don't have the time. I can buy a crappy home and hire people to renovate it, but then the returns will likely be far lower than the stock market with far higher risk. It's a great gig for my cousin because he is a handyman and he can create work for himself and he can do it in a tax efficient manner. But you have to recognize the difference between the actual investment portion of the returns and the labor portion.

        With stocks, you don't have to do any work after you select your investment. If you are a passive investor who uses index funds, you don't have to do any work in selecting investments either. Stocks are the most common way ordinary people become wealthy and is how rich people stay wealthy.

        [–]CrayolaS7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        It really depends on where you are and stuff. In my country the short-cut to wealth is through real-estate investment because there are huge benefits in terms of taxation, that said it is still a long-term payofff. Personally I have made good money from investments in bank shares (dividends were as high as 11% of the value in 2011-2012 when the prices were still low. Now the price of the shares has increased I would make a bunch if I sold them but instead I get about 6% per year which is much better than a savings account. Now, banks in your country may be a risky investment but the point is that you should look for shares where you can make a return regardless of the markets direction. Even when there have been crashes, the market eventually recovers. As long as you aren't forced to sell when it's low you won't actually lose out just because the price decreases. (Unless the company goes bankrupt, I guess, but I'm talking blue-chips here).

        As for simple things that anyone can do, make sure you savings/checking account is as cheap as possible, look for banks that reward you with bonus interest for online savings accounts, you can often get all the fees waived if you deposit something like $1000/2000 per month (your wages). Mine even gives me free withdrawals from any ATM rather than just my own bank.

        Secondly, it's rarely too early to start thinking about tax minimisation. Obviously it will depend on your country/laws but it is sometimes possible to for example, have your mortgage/car-payment deducted straight from your salary by your employer. The cost of the repayment remains the same but because you never personally received it your taxable income will be reduced.

        [–]Precocious_Kid 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        Read "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" by Burton Malkiel. It's the intro to investing that a good deal of banks and wealth management firms require their interns/first-years to read. It'll give you a good understanding of the vehicles for wealth management you have at your disposal and it'll also help you to avoid the get rich quick kind of books.

        You're doing the right thing. Read every investment book you can get your hands on- this is one area not to be frugal about it. A terrible book that manages to save you one bad trade will pay for itself in the saved commissions alone!

        Personally I like the Timothy Vick books about warren buffet, and Mary buffets' "buffetology".

        One thing to be aware of is there is a lot of nonsense out there. Diversification is kinda nonsense- assumes your an idiot throwing darts. Real estate can be good if you avoid bubble situations, look at direction of neighborhood, buy cheap not when things are hot.

        When people tell you it's a bad idea, that's the time to buy. I passed on apple at less than $1 a share! If I'd put $10k in- which I had at the time- it would be $1M. Sigh.

        I've always wanted to own car parks, easy to maintain, no need to hire too many staffs, and you get paid a shit load by people parking there. At least that's what I fantasized about in my head. It's probably not easy to purchase a car park.

        "Making money was an early interest for Buffett, who sold soft drinks and had a paper route. When he was 14 years old, he invested the earnings from these endeavors in 40 acres of land, which he then rented for a profit."

        My god, why was this never told to me at a younger age?

        [–]needless_pickup_line 39 points40 points  (15 children)

        Good luck buying 40 acres of land with money from a paper route, but I get what you're saying.

        It's not too late to start now. A buddy of mine with a bio degree is having trouble finding work. Instead of being content with his current retail job he's scoping out biomedical stocks so he can invest.

        [–]colovick 8 points9 points  (6 children)

        40 acres in the Midwest isn't as bad as you'd think, but you definitely need to do more then paper routes... Pressure washing is a pretty good gig you can do around that age... A few hundred startup cost for equipment (you can rent it for your first gig) and people usually pay about 2 grand for 2 days worth of labor... Get a friend and you can do 1 house per day pretty easily.

        Honestly, the best investment I've made so far has been buying a house. I know, hear me out first. I'm 22, fresh out of college. Illinois gives $7,500 to first time home owners right now on top of low interest loans and only 1% down. I took a small sum of my inheritance and bought a 2 story house in Wicker Park, Chicago (a trendy upscale neighborhood). Got a fair price on the home since the market is shit. Now i live on the first floor with a roommate and collect rent from 3 other tenants. I basically live for free (rent covers mortgage, util., etc.) with another $1,000 profit on top each month. It was the best decision I've ever made. So good im looking into buying another small place to rent out. Being a slumlord is actually kind of fun anyway. Just kidding.. but seriously, it was a great investment and I encourage anybody with a bit of disposable income to do the same.

        [–]1johnnight 11 points12 points  (1 child)

        My savings are fuck you money. It's there for safety.

        If I got fired today, I could go on for exactly 30 months (or 60 months if I went completely frugal). I actually had a lengthy period, when I survived off of the savings.

        I saved this up, because I am a cheap asshole, who does rent a cheap apartment and was driving a shitty car and now uses public transport. It's a matter of personality. Buying luxury is painful for me.

        Also, no college debt. Taxpayers payed for this.

          Investing a car payment in mutual funds averages 5m over 40 years (working lifetime). Throw in house payment and student loans and you're looking at 20m. Having the foresight to pay ahead of time and using that savings well, does in fact make you rich.

          What gets me about gold digger types is that they expect everyone else to act responsibly for them while they go running around spending up everyone else's hard earned cash. It's like some perverse Kim Jong Il situation, where you should be the dirt eating people of DPRK and she gets to hang out with Dennis Rodman - I mean her girlfriends - while you hear about it on state tv and pay for it with your days at work.

            ACCOLADE?!!!! Surely she is referring to some special honor or achievement?

She is acting like all women, if you want to say all women are gold diggers then fine by me, but I'd rather leave that term for the girls who ONLY look to date guys who have money and wouldn't even give him the time of day without it.

              Agreed. Too often, many of you guys get into this "yeah, women suck" spiral and it's not productive at all. She's not devious or evil, she's just being what it is in her nature to be.

              Yes, but this is a bullshit cop out. Compare it to a serial killer with frontal lobe damage. He's just being what he was naturally meant to be, it's not evil! This is called a naturalistic fallacy. The behavior by the bitch in the op is fairly termed immoral, shifty, evil etc. I agree with accepting it and not being bitter, but lets call a spade a spade.

              [–]nourathrowway 16 points17 points  (11 children)

              She left him because he was happy with his life but she wanted to own 3 properties. She states plainly that he should have been buying her love with his money. If that aint gold digging then wtf is?

              [–]DoctorWelch 26 points27 points  (7 children)

              She is being a woman. All women want your money, your power, your success. They all want to take part in everything you are and will dumb you if you aren't maximizing what you can be. She is no different than any other woman. This is a core part of the TRP.

              If you want to say that all women are gold digging then fine, but I would rather leave that term to define a girl who only dates a man when and because he has money.

              [–]tallwheel 2 points3 points  (2 children)

              I would rather leave that term to define a girl who only dates a man when and because he has money.

              By your own definition, she is pretty much a gold digger. She left him because he doesn't have money, and when she found out he does she pretty much wanted him back.

              [–]DoctorWelch 18 points19 points  (0 children)

              No, by my definition she wouldn't even have given him the time of day if he wasn't rich.

              This is TRP, and her dumping him is completely logical considering what we know about women's desires in men.

                I wouldn't call it good. The less TRP overflows to, and I will use my cultural privilege to appropriate a "safe" word, toxic subreddits, the more butthurt will it generate, and in turn the more SJW (who sadly, have a significant presence on plebbit) into shutting TRP down - censorship under the guise of "hate speech".

                TRP won't work on rabid SJWs, much like it wouldn't work on a religious zealot. It will work for a common average man, who is not really sure of his position in the world, and who only superficially satisfied with the answers of the current religion of "progress". 2XC is the last place one would advertise to.

                That's why it should only "overflow" in a subtle undetectable way. Through stories, anecdotes, and comments that support the basic principles of human sex differentiation (and sex differentiation in general)

                I don't blame her at all, she is a few years away from hitting the wall and needs to know she is with someone who can provide. C'mon people this is Red Pill 101.

                It's one thing to be frugal and it's another to be cheap. I mean, if he is happy doing what he is doing and that's all he wants then fine with me, nothing against him. And it seems like from his reaction to her he understands his position in life and is happy with it.

                With the nature of women we can't just expect her to be happy when it seems like this dude is a poor bum with no motivation. Seems like you guys don't understand the basics and want her to be something she isn't. As long as he realizes that then everything is fine here. Nothing good or bad, just obvious. I wouldn't really say there is any hamstering going on here, just her understanding her biological need and him not showing he can fulfill it in any way.

                [–]denmaur 15 points16 points  (0 children)

                I agree. I think she saw a life time of potato soup for dinner and him not trying to better himself. She's probably better off anyway. People that cheap don't change.

                I knew an old lawyer once who would walk three blocks from his office to make copies because he could save 5 cents per copy. And it wasn't a whole lot of copying so he probably saved 50 cents per trip on average.

                [–]tallwheel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                I see this as more of an RP example than a "women behaving badly" or "hypergamy gone wild" story. Yes, you are right that it is natural for women who are nearing the wall to seek someone she knows can provide.

                Thing is, feminism and the general 'you go girl' attitude created guys like Will. Dude lives how he wants, and when she told him she wanted to break it off, dude handled it like a boss. Hell, the way I see it, bitch was practically a plate and just didn't know it. I'll bet Will will be screwing another bitch in no time - if he isn't already - and he will break it off with the new bitch too as soon as she becomes no longer worth the trouble.

                Yes, this is the world we now live in, so it's hard to be too surprised about the way she acted. Still, I think most of us here would have a hard time not feeling a bit of schadenfreude seeing examples like this where the old deal between the sexes is clearly crashing and burning. One may feel sorry for women in the crash, but this is the pond feminism led them to, and they all chose to drink from it. They can either try to repair the system (good luck with that) or live with the consequences of it.

                Maybe a closer equivalent would be a decent looking woman, but who has frizzy hair and wears dumpy clothes. After you break up with her, you find out she was doing some modeling on the side, and when she tries, she actually looks smokin' hot. She just chooses to take it easy and not worry about fashion and looks too much in her private life.

                [–]1thrownaway_MGTOW 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                Nah... that would be false. Being "frugal" is the reality of this guy, as another commenter ITT noted: that is how you get (and/or STAY) "loaded" (relatively speaking anyway) -- if you piss it away on crap then you generally don't/won't stay loaded for long.

                What even this guy's friends may not be aware of is that even oil & gas rights money doesn't continue to flow forever. Will almost certainly learned to live his frugal (and easy-going) manner from his father and grandpa -- and no doubt they also advised and taught him to save up/invest for the day when that oil/gas money WILL run dry.

                TRP ideology is just an unfiltered masculine view of modern society. Every once in a while, a woman will anger a man just enough to unveil the filter from his eyes, and his true masculinity will shine through. Sometimes it never goes back on, sometimes it does.

                Here's a thought, why instead of breaking up with him, did you not have a sit down and talk to him about what was bothering you?

                Nah shit testing is the path she chose and it totally backfired on her.

                RP terminology in a default, FEMINIST, sub. Man I'm happy.

                She got what she deserved. Out of respect for the woman, I hope she learns her lesson and doesn't screw up in the future. Props to Will for not being a complete idiot with his money. He kept it safe from the gold-diggers out in the world.

                Satisfying read. I'm surprised people on TwoXChromosomes ripped into her. I thought that subreddit is all about support.

                She's not gold digger on the level of V Stiviano, but she is using a typical woman trick -- using break up to get what she wants... assuming she didn't lie to lessen the gold digging-ness of her post.

                This is actually an "accepted" power struggle practice according to many women, as my female friends, who were undoubtedly on my side, have suggested that pulling something like this on my girlfriend (at the time) was "okay". I didn't get it back then, but I get it now.

                One thing I learned through out my dating and relationship mishaps, is that whatever you learn from women, becomes a tool that you can also use as well. Yes, this "pretend" break up trick works disgustingly well against women, because you are then speaking their language. I would say it works better against women than it works against men, because women know this is just a way to tell them how important an issue is, where men will just think WTF this chick is breaking up with me. Plus women tend to enjoy drama, and what's more dramatic then break up-make up?

                IMHO of course, my personal experience is just a small subset of what's out there, so maybe I just have the luck of picking the ones that like drama.

                One caveat, as with any gamble, is that you should be prepared to lose whatever it is that you are betting.

                This chick didn't realize that part.

                I especially like how she calls it a 'bad break-up', when actually, from Will's perspective it sounds like a pretty damn clean break to me. Dude showed her the door and went no contact. Sounds like a great break-up to me.

                  Will's the rare type of guy who can inherit a great deal of wealth and not turn into a retard. That is discipline and true non-neediness; nearly everyone you meet will on some level care about "showing off" what they make to their GF / wife so they can feel successful. This is the level you should aspire to - in fact, if you truly want to enter relationships where you aren't the beta bucks, you have to be at this level. If you are at the point where you'd rather the relationship die than you have to play the BB role for 1 second... that is when you're ready to move on from plates to LTR.

                  TRP is so gripping... So about 2 years ago, I'm very close with this couple (family friends). Husband owns a small business making millions per year. Enough to send the kids to an expensive private school, buy them new cars, etc. The kids will have to work when they're older, but they always treated their kids (and family/friends) very well.

                  Wife? She works a fairly easy job full time, doing something she's passionate about. Her ol' boss used to let her work different hours so she'd be out of there by 3 most days.

                  Did I mention she did the books?

                  Keep in mind he's getting old and was ready to retire.

                  At some point ol' husband gets a tad bit suspicious when there's no money to pay the bills. How could this be? The wife had "cooked" the books up the whole time they were together.

                  Now, I don't know their exact financial situation at that point other than they were either in debt or had nearly nothing except the value of his business. One thing that he did mention was that she had literally hundreds of shoes in her closet that had never been worn ONCE.

                  Anyway, you know what's coming next. She pushed for divorce as soon as there was no more money. They got divorced, and Mr. I'm Going to Retire Soon is still working 2 years later with no end in site.

                  Take away? If nothing else, don't let your wife do the books.

                  I can't help but feel jealous by this; it seems like everyone but me is making significant gains in their lives and relationships. Three weeks ago, after seeing a girl I knew from high school buy her 3rd property with her husband,

                  If a man with disposable income meets a woman he likes, doesn't he want to treat her?

                  I could understand treating as in buying small gifts, tokens of affection. But the way she understands male-female relations is that the man works, buys her property and these are 'significant relationship gains'. The woman does not have material success on her own. She does not work to get what she wants on life. She gets it by getting it from the man. If she can't make her man get it for her, she is jealous of the other women, who got it.

                  Women castigate men for feeling entitled to sex. Well, the amount of entitlement she showed here is off the charts.

                  [–]oleksey 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                  "lacked career/life ambition" - That's a good reason for woman. I wound't try to explain everything with logic. Women are emotionally driven. She felt unsure about their future, she felt unsecure with him. That's the reason. At least I think so and this is my opinion. And yeah, I am not going to argue or discuss it.

                  [–]SomebodyCool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  It's a troll. The first paragraph is a concise barrage of facts about him, sprinkled with the occasional fashion comment - it's what a dude with little knowledge of women would write to pretend to be a woman. It's all facts facts facts, deductions from facts, factual descriptions. This is not how the vast, vast majority of girls write in general, and especially not about a relationship that has just ended in an upsetting way. It's a troll, and a very obvious one.

                  I've always held that people with large fortunes don't necessarily spend a lot. There's a reason they have the money in the first place.

                  This is more true for self-made people. Lottery winners and Old Money tend to be into the extravagant stuff.

                  [–]mirinrustles 6 points7 points  (6 children)

                  In my opinion it's the new wealth and lottery winners. The old money in my area have million dollar homes and still drive Camrys. The new money are the ones with Lambos and Ferraris. Then you have the ones in homes in the 750-1000k. Those have Maseratis, Bentleys, and whatever six figure car is flashy. Signs that "you've made it" y'know?

                  I'd much rather have a nice big house than a nice car.

                  Big houses are overrated.

                  They're either a bitch to maintain & clean, or you have to hire staff to do it for you; same with the outside.

                  And for the most part they end up just being a building with a lot of empty, unused rooms. What use do you or will you really have for 7 bedrooms? If you don't have lots of kids, then where's the value? Plan on having a lot of parasitic house guests? Using them as servants quarters for a live in valet or maid or chauffeur?

                  No? Well then they'll basically end up just being rooms to store shit in.

                  The same thing kind of happens with a lot of the other rooms in big houses, the formal dining room; again unless you have a large family or plan on giving "upscale dinner parties" (and seriously who actually does that anymore? I know quite a few people who have large homes with formal dining rooms, and they don't do that -- the rooms simply don't get used... the rare occasions when they do have a "party", they either do it at some rented hall with catering... or they grill out on the patio/deck and maybe the "sun-room" or "Florida-room" as it is sometimes called).

                  Face it, if you're like most people, the REAL reason you have fantasies about "a nice BIG house" is that you think it would impress OTHER people (i.e. look at me, and how successful I am with my big dick erm, I mean my big mansion-like house). You've never really envisioned what it would be like living in one of the things on a daily basis.

                  I have an immense respect and admiration for that man. He did everything perfectly.

                  He hid his wealth to be able to see his girlfriend's real nature. He held frame and immediately dumped her as soon as she showed how miserable and interested she really was. Slamming the door.

                  He never answered to her obsessive/compulsive calls. This is the cherry on the cake.

                  And here guys is a terrific example of a true ALPHA:

                  The next time I was over at Will's ... I ended the relationship ... He sat and listened to everything, seemingly unmoved by it. When I finished talking, he said "fine by me" and asked me to leave. I went to hug him on my way out, instead he just guided me out the door and slammed it shut behind him ... I haven't heard a fucking word from Will, even after texting him multiple times and calling him once.

                  [–]other_worlds 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  To a man, being jealous of a friend's accomplishments on Facebook will drive him to be more accomplished himself.

                  To a woman, being jealous of a friend's accomplishments on Facebook will drive her to break up with her man, if he can't accomplish it.

                  The thought that she should strive to accomplish these things never even enters the consciousness of anyone in that main thread.

                  [–]giraffe34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  My step-grandpa would definitely befriend "Will". He gets mistaken for a homeless man on a daily basis, but little would you know that he is actually a multimillionaire from tobacco stock. People's (and especially women's) perception of rich people isn't what it usually turns out to be. They may seem as if they were godlike people with corrupt amounts of political power and fancy watches, but most of them (and the wisest) live just like us.

                  If a man with disposable income meets a woman he likes, doesn't he want to treat her?

                  He could have easily kept our relationship alive by being forthcoming (he be loaded)

                  Such entitlement. And gold digging. And she can't see it?

Good for this guy. I wish I won the lottery if only so I could pull a stunt like this. I love how she's upset that he's not upset about the break-up:

                  He could've said something, ANYTHING during our break up when I was explaining my doubts about our relationship. Instead he said nothing,

                  What the fuck should he have said? "Please, don't dump me! Stay with me! I'M RICH!"

                  Okay, this one pissed me off. TRP doctrine fundamentally believes that AF BB. In fact, the entire theory revolves around the idea. But, when a woman, surprise surprise, confirms the theory, it's quoted like it's a finger pointing contest.

                  Jesus fucking Christ guys. I fully accept the theory of hypergamy. We all do. In this instance we know that she's lying to herself and looking for a way to justify that she isn't a gold digger when she is.

                  Either TRP needs to accept that there are double standards and shut the fuck up about it, or not. In the latter instance I'll be leaving the community because in that context this sub is about masturbation of the ego and not self improvement. Any in-between is contributing to a feminist like circle jerk that makes it us vs them.

                  I say feminist like because that's what feminists do. They say "They have it soo much better. We have it soo much worse!" It's a self defeating thing to say. You are making TRP into this bullshit victim mentality that points to vaginas to say "see! See! They're all like that! Aren't they terrible! Men are not like this!"

                  We.

                  Are.

                  Men.

                  We are better than that. Men do not blame a scorpion for stinging a frog because it's in its nature. We accept the fact and move on because that's the only way we can better ourselves.

                  If you dwell on the advantage women have, you lose. Simple as. Do not waste time nodding in confirmation about how this bitch is whining out of the loss of a fucking fortune. You gain nothing.

                  Also, and downvote me for this if you like, it's reasonable for a woman to care about the financial status of a potential future husband. He doesn't need to be a oil heir, but he needs to have a plan for how they are going to afford health insurance for their kids and live in a good neighborhood.

                  Will is mgtow. Wouldn't be surprised if he frequents TRP himself. His gym friends are pretty alpha too. If you have guy friends like that, keep them. Unlike BP men who will shame the rich guy for not spending, they know it is ultimately his choice to live his life and the bitch deserved it.

                  Anyways, don't be too harsh on the bitch. She was just deploying her hypergamy and her need to find a rich partner. With her ticking time clock and Wills great ability to hide his wealth, his friends not letting out how rich he is, combined with his frugal lifestyle, the bitch didn't stand a chance in recognizing the jackpot she scored.

                  [–]zodar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  She absolutely did the right thing. If you want to get married and have kids and your significant other doesn't, you should shake hands and part ways like adults. Sure, she's a gold digger, but she does have one thing right : if she wants the "I use Facebook as a PR platform to try to make my friends jealous of me" lifestyle, she needs to find a new partner who wants the same thing.

                  [–]skoobled 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  He's probably intentionally frugal so as to weed out gold digging friends/women. I'm sure if you're loaded and deeper than a puddle then this must be a constant problem. In this case guy did well, props to him. Clearly loaded and smart, what more could a guy need?

                  With prior boyfriends, we'd still talk or text a bit after we'd be broken up. Sometimes we'd even still hook up.

                  This is important. Most women don't view a breakup as the end of a relationship because they are so used to being able to throw themselves at their ex boyfriends and use sex to get back together. This leads them to view a breakup as an ultimatum they can use to force a guy's hand.

                  How can she be annoyed when she broke off the relationship? If she was going to stay if he explained the money he had, then she as just with him for his cash. If she actually liked him then she wouldn't care about his finance. Some day he will likely get married to some nice woman who doesn't know about the oil and likes him for him, and she will be very pleasantly surprised.

                  I work in a field that serves some really rich folks as clients (billionaires and hundred-millionaires) and you can tell that the ones who met their wives before they got rich are extremely loyal husbands and don't hire identical twin prostitutes or anything, since their wives are the only person in the world who isn't looking for a handout from them. And the ones who weren't married before they got rich, are always suspicious of women like this guy in the OP's story rightly was.

                  Why do you think Mark Zuckerberg wifed up Priscilla? Why does Eminem keep getting back together with Kim even though that relationship clearly doesn't work? Because they're the only women who they can ever be sure loved them for who they are, not their money or status.
