Blue Pill ExampleNeedy Texting Instantly Destroys Attraction (Image Example) (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by TRPDigesting

I highly doubt that anybody who has arrived at TRP sends messages like the example I'm going to share, but I wanted to post it here to make a point.

Brief Backstory I have an older sister who is in her upper 20's, and she's been passively looking around for someone new to date.

She's reportedly been pretty disappointed with the lot of whiney, emasculated men out there and never takes things anywhere with them due to boredom and being un-attracted.

Her most recent endeavor was re-joining Bumble. She's been sharing some of her conversations and matches with me for chuckles.

This is one that I thought was particularly interesting.

The dude in question here is a guy who "stacked up pretty well on paper." Attractive enough, seemed like he had a decent life put together, has a dog (which is something stereotypical she goes after).

But he pretty much immediately killed any attraction he had going with this message that he sent.

She texted me the screenshot and said, "Is this beta? I'm not into that."

Here's some areas where things went awry for him.

  • Exorbitant use of Exclamation Points !

  • Reply is about 4 times longer than the message she sent to him first

  • Message is littered with excited, happy emojis...5, in total versus her original message which contained 0

  • Bombards her with questions right away instead of going with the flow of conversation

  • Puts all the decision on her by saying when he is free, and suggesting "Lunch, dinner, or something" if she's "up for it"

I highly doubt any of you are out there tripping on your faces this hard.

I felt a micro-ounce of sympathy for this guy, because he seems to be embodying the cultural values of being nice and interested in the girl...non-aggressive...all of that. He probably can't figure out why he was ghosted after this.

This is partly why it's a RP golden rule around here...keep your texting just for logistics only (especially in the initial stages of knowing the girl).

If texting is part of your game I'm inclined to believe that you're probably doing it better than this chap.

Some would argue that 63% of the global net-daily cringe quota is spent by the NSAโ€”which is frighteningly similar to the percent black budget allocation they receive.

Man. Yeah this basically reads like a dogโ€™s thoughts if you were dangling beef jerky over his head.

Sad thing is, Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ve sent texts like this in the past long before finding TRP.

OTOH, this is almost a text book example of how to get rid of a girl if she is being too clingy and you just want her to kind of lose attraction for you.

[โ€“]TRPDigesting[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Totally has that vibe about it, but I think this was his second message after "Hey!! What are you up to this weekend?!"

I've got three crazy exes that will not leave me alone. I've tried ignoring and blocking them. For some reason I feel like it's approaching stalking at this point and doing this shit is going to make it worse...

Though I managed to make one fuck off for like 12 months until she tried to rope me back with her victim complex.

I tried it for lulz some time ago. The girl got mad enough to start a ltr with one of my friends. And tried to nuke the social circle.

You can only go so much beta before it backfires.

A girl's Beta game might make a guy want to fuck her, never the opposite.

She can up her alpha game if she wants to get rid of a guy she boned though.

[โ€“][deleted] 3 points4 points  (3 children)

maybe your sister boned this guy

I don't think the verb bone is interchangeable with the verb fuck. When you bone someone doesn't this mean that you're 'giving them the bone' so to speak? Your sentence implies that OP's sister has a dick.

Boggled my mind that a guy's brain would greenlight this shit before pressing send.

It's not weird that men act like women when they're basically told they should be more like women.

[โ€“]Psychocist 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Truth. Lot of people here have been there. Hilarious that now we're pointing the finger.

Text game is reeeaalll fucking simple: text for logistics, keep it short and sweet, don't give her attention.

The amount of time I've saved from just texting for logistics and filtering out flakey clowns is ridiculous. Bitches have beta orbiters for texting buddies. If she isn't fucking you, she should have about 0% of your attention.

[โ€“]Eastuss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, don't give anything to people who don't want to give you anything. And the lesson works both ways, for women, don't ask anything if you won't give anything back.

last time on r sex was a woman who said a dude forced her to suck him. She said she just wanted cuddle and kiss on his bed, basically "give me what I want but you won't get what you want", be stoic don't take stupid risks, don't make people frustrated... not apologizing this dude though.

problem in this world is that women believe we owe them the attention and should settle for their rules...

[โ€“]Heinzdoofens 38 points39 points  (0 children)

This is the kind of text a girl should send a guy.

Girl Game is being nice, charming and accomodating so that the other party likes her.

Boy Game is being stubborn and ruthless with his decisions and to enforce it in order to kick out every girl who isn't into him and just wasting his time.

However neither of those things cause the emoticons, that can only be cured with beatings.

[โ€“]antariusz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huh, weird maybe thatโ€™s why I do better with women when Iโ€™m tired. I thought it was just because I was more in a โ€œIDGAFโ€ mood. But the rambling direct output from my brain might be part of it too.

[โ€“]PunkYetii 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tbh, I salvaged the situation.

But things aren't the same. My mistake was thinking, in exaggerated terms, women can be a shoulder to cry on. Nope. You just come across as a bitch, regardless of the amount of stress you're under.

I was able to remember my training right after, but it's hard to rebuild your reputation once a woman sees your foundation has cracks.

Either way, I patched those cracks and restored my frame, but whatever. You live you learn.

[โ€“]Lemilleon 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Same here. This time is worse cause you know that it won't work but can't help but do it. The self-awarness makes it that much worse.

[โ€“]Psychocist 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You'll get there. Just fill your life with more interesting things than pussy, then you simply won't have the time to text for anything but logistics.

[โ€“]Koryphae_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No, the more self-aware you are making this mistake the less chance you do it again later, or at least catch yourself mid doing it. If you realise while texting you are doing something wrong but still do it then your mindset is not fully changed, not fully unplugged since you are hoping to get a different response with the technique which has not worked previously. Perfect example of social conditioning i.e. be nice.

[โ€“]yazen_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Second this. You gotta trust the process. It's hard the beginning especially if you have few failures, this happened to me. The first dates I had were awful, girls weren't responsive as I expected, and they weren't even my SMV, I just didn't take it personally, as they had shitty personalities. Man, when I upgraded the quality of women I go for bow, they are more responsive and I feel more confident. I think, women can sniff it, if you are just dating them, because you don't have any better, as they notice the SMV gap. With more beautiful women, they admire the fact you have balls to pursue them.

OP probably doesn't want to fuck his sister, so there isn't any problem in telling her about RP knowledge.

[โ€“]Docbear64 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Depends on the sister , last thing you want is her talking about those "dating and manipulation blogs you used to read" should you ever meet a girl you decide to bring around . talk about a crack in your frame.

[โ€“]rpman69 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Damn right. My sister confessed that, she is a feminist (basically I confronted her about why men shouldn't be doormats/white knights). Now I am determined not to let my gf meet my sister. I don't think she will break my relationship; but she will try to break my frame.

[โ€“]iwasbornred 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[โ€“]Torabor64 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Talking about RP knowledge isn't talking about this specific reddit.

[โ€“]Docbear64 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

You're right and we have no clue how OP presented this information to his sister but when she's outright asking stuff like "Is this Beta?" I'm a little doubtful to the tact used to talk about his RP knowledge period You think using terms like Beta and Alpha males in conversation won't lead to some kind of manosphere blog or sexual strategy site is she pops them into Google?

[โ€“]Torabor64 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Alpha and beta arem't some obscure concept to anyone. In fact almost everything we talk here isn't unknown even if people don't believe it.

[โ€“]Docbear64 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The point in telling men not to share TRP concepts isn't to make you feel bad it's so you can protect yourself and your relationships. There's no need to get defensive, if you share the information in a way that isn't a detriment to yourself then fantastic but not everyone will .

Pretty much, yeh. Why not? I've sometimes intentionally let go of women just to develop my abundance mentality. Who cares about any given woman, the underlying attitudes are what will change your life.

Of course, people have different methods and different ideas about how to go about this. This is just my experience.

[โ€“]CoronaTRP -1 points0 points  (2 children)

She can tell girls he wants to fuck.

[โ€“]Torabor64 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why would his sister do that?

[โ€“]CoronaTRP -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I can imagine several scenarios, besides actual malice, that his sister may do that. Most depend on her not knowing how important is that it is kept a secret that he frequents such sites.

  1. She discusses these concepts with her girlfriends, who might overlap with your social circle.
  2. She may use red pill lingo like alpha or beta nonchalantly, and when prompted what is is, she may say "It's something I got from my brother :)"
  3. She gets hammered and tells it her best friend (and then it spreads from there)
  4. She points a guy she's dating here, saying it's what her brother does who is supposedly very good in satisfying women. If he somehow gets out of control, he could spread the knowledge too.

Unless his sister is his red pilled "bro" (which is probably the frame from which you are coming from, in that case, yeah "Why would she do that"), it would not be wise at all to let her know you are red pilled.

[โ€“]StraightGlueWater 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like most things red pill, we give black and white, true or false answers because it helps the learning process.

You can talk RP with people who have demonstrated trustworthiness.

[โ€“]TRPDigesting[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Beta isn't a term that's exclusive to TRP. Even some of the most bluepill folks out there know that there is an Alpha - Beta separation.

Beta is a joke all its own across the Internet (fedoras, neckbeards, m'lady) of course she knows about Beta's. There's no point in sharing RP wisdom with her, she's oblivious to it.

[โ€“]1DubbleFUPAwitCheez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alpha and beta are terms you can throw around these days and most people will get it. If he's with his sister and points to some beta shit and says "that's some beta shit" she'll pick up on it.

I'd make it even more close ended and assertive than this. I'd just say, "bla bla bla finals on monday, I'll have more time after that. Let's meet up then." Can even go on to pick a day rather than leaving it up to her own availability.

Texting is for short communication only. I get frustrated when my girl sends me storybook texts or emails. Save it for a face to face convo.

[โ€“]akatsukirp -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Don't get frustrated, just don't read them. Problem solved.

[โ€“][deleted] 28 points29 points  (7 children)

Sometimes texting/snapping can be used to build rapport with someone. Often times I've tried the logistics thing straight up, and got ghosted or flaked on (after the plans were established). It personally hasn't worked for me very well. Keeping a conversation throughout the day with limited, spaced texts seems ideal in my opinion.

Edit: parenthesis

[โ€“]childish_albino_ 27 points28 points  (5 children)

If a chick ghosts you because you started talking logistics ("let's grab drinks this week. How does friday sound?"), then she had no interest in meeting up in the first place. This is especially true when it comes to dating apps like tinder or bumble. If you start scheduling a date and she stops responding, she likely was never interested in meeting you in the first place, and was just on there for validation (just wanted guys to flirt with her and tell her she's hot, with no chance of an actual relationship).

tl;dr: It wasn't your approach that was wrong, it was the girls. Move on to the next one.

[โ€“][deleted] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

It's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about when it comes time to doing it they ghost at that point when the plans were already made. I just think there's a fine line sometimes. It depends on the person, obviously, but straight logistics and then radio silence seems like a higher chance of flaking in my experience.

[โ€“]childish_albino_ 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Then the plans weren't made. Not in her mind anyways. You're still not understanding me. She was stringing you along for the attention. Nothing more. Yes, that includes "Yeah I'd love to grab drinks on friday!", then flaking at the last minute. Because she knows if she denied your request, you'd start ignoring her and move on to the next girl. So she lets you think that she's serious, and willing to meet up with you, up until it's time to make good on that promise.

Also

straight logistics and then radio silence

Is overkill. Just talk logistics and then end it there. But if she texts you, you can absolutely respond. No need to straight ignore her.

[โ€“][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh I agree and don't doubt that's the case. I just think doing some texting up until the date is beneficial if you do it right. I've never really had it work for me as described by some to do just logistics and it really work. I think it may work better if you've met the person before to do this, but with randoms it creates more flakes/ghosting in my opinion. This is just my experience with it.

[โ€“]askmrcia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think both you and Childish are right.

It really depends on the girl. For most girls, especially on dating apps, you don't want to waste too much time texting. Def logistics only for the most part.

However, there are some girls on there who may be a different case. They maybe new to the dating apps, may want to talk more through texts before meeting up or whatever. So yes, its not always black and white where you ALWAYS want to text for logistics only.

And now let me go back to the post OP did. My only gripe with that text/bumble message was the emojis and way too many "lols". Way too many. Other then that it wasn't that bad because some girls actually may want a long text message. Keep in mind OP's sister is thirsty for a boyfriend, she has a ton of options, so she simply doesn't want to waste too much time chit chatting.

[โ€“]NYCSPARKLE 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's not.

The logistics don't have to be so cold and hard that it feels like you're scheduling a doctors appointment, but you should not be sending multiple texts in a day to a girl unless you've been on a few dates.

Seeing examples like this has made me adopt the rule of never making a (non-logistical) text longer than like 100 characters. Shorter if at all possible. Verbosity comes across as needy no matter who you're talking to.

[โ€“]bestCallEver 1 points1 points [recovered]

Man I'm pretty good about brevity with babes, but I run a small business and do many of my sales online via email / Facebook messenger, and I'm often disgusted looking at the walls of text I have to send to potential clients. I try to trim them down but it's all necessary information ... just makes me feel like I'm trying too hard to make a sale / look desperate. It has to do with the fact that I'm making expensive custom pieces for people and there are a lot of fucking options. Still makes me cringe though.

[โ€“]washington_breadstix -1 points0 points  (1 child)

That's a completely different context though. It's not regular social interaction.

[โ€“]2Dmva100 8 points9 points  (3 children)

No matter what a girl texts you, never respond or answer the question. The only exception is when setting up logistics. This should be the only time you ever acknowledge or send her texts. It will train her to avoid stupid text-game bullshit with you.

'Why haven't You talked to me today?' Ignore.

'Did I leave xXxX at your place?' Ignore.

'Why aren't you texting me back?' Ignore.

The response to any of these comes when you text back at YOUR convenience:

'Lets talk about it at 8:00pm at xxxx'

Anything beyond an enthusiastic and immediate 'Okay' warrants further ignoring and contacting another option

[โ€“][deleted] 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Lame. This is too try hard for my taste. Here's what i prefer.

'Why haven't You talked to me today?' Busy.

'Did I leave xXxX at your place?' Yes/No.

'Why aren't you texting me back?' Busy.

Sure if she then insists on dragging out the convo rather keeping it crisp and to the point then feel free to ignore. But ignoring almost every single communication just to seem like some mysterious douche is too try hard for me.

[โ€“]g23john 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You can do this with LTRs too, btw. A wise man on this sub about 2 years ago said โ€œthe one with less to lose has all the power (in the relationship)โ€ . Texting anyone too much demonstrates that you NEED their approval and communication. In the context of a woman, it demonstrates that they have more power.

It took more time to write your reply than to take the 1.2 seconds of scanning to see the name mismatch. Perhaps you are autistic after all.

Would be more work than scanning - I'd have to return to the post, find my comment then cross reference the original comment with the new comment - or I could just reply from the inbox view with an assumption that it's the same person if the comment looks like it might be which is probably correct over 90% of the time.

I'm so sorry that I'm not super familiar with Reddit's 1990's HTML piece of shit UI.

Don't make sweeping generalizations about emojis and acting excited. While I agree that that message was the epitome of numale, emojis and feigning excitement have it's places. I.e. you know a girl is interested and you are high SMV, acting like she is a special snowflake can be a useful tool. Push/pull. Maybe if he didn't respond for three days and sent an excited text (albeit shorter) it may have worked.

If you have good texting game you should not limit yourself to logistics, but indeed, this is shaky ground and requires as much skill as real life game.

Just don't put too much effort into it like you have nothing better to do than texting all day, responding to her every message, and constructing emoji filled essays. More, better have something better to do because faking it might not take you far in this case.

I have great fun texting with some of my plates, I even believe it's my stronger part of game.

Just be witty without trying too hard and you can get her wet and ready through short texting only.

Don't give this guy too much shit if he's young. He can learn how to properly text a girl without scaring her away, we all make dumb-ass mistakes from time to time.

[โ€“]TRPDigesting[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Idk man, you might just be accustomed to using them. It's not like you can never use them...it's just that it's not a great foot to lead with when a girl is first getting to know you.

There are both girls and guys in my life that I'll drop an emoji or two into the conversation with. Sometimes it's fun.

It's just that, for whatever reason, the emoji is a symbol of hyper-enthusiasm when you first meet a new girl (or match with her on Tinder, w/e). This can hamper your image of being aloof and not too involved in the conversation.

I can't recommend this from experience, but Troy Francis wrote a guide on texting.... He's regularly featured on Roosh's "Return of Kings" blog, so I trust that he has some authority on the matter.

[โ€“]DaBrokenMeta 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Curious, I have been sort of working this girl with a twin sister.

Context: Things are friendly between us. She is definitely interested but has a BF long distance with a magnitude lower SMV, so I am working thru that right now.

We hang out when we have time (currently in semester 1 of med school), but I haven't made a true play to escalate the relationship just yet (because of timing).

My question: As I am still new to TRP and breaking my beta overindulgences. Would texting her good luck (night)before exam feeding beta tendencies? (As i write this, I feel like maybe so)

I feel like I should keep things in good standing between us, until I can escalate. Or do I keep my distance until I can execute?

I know it's a small thing to worry about, but it's the little things that lead to big things (at least that's how my brain functions).

Thanks!

[โ€“]TRPDigesting[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Alright, I've got a couple free minutes here.

I'm not going to be as cutthroat as some others may be here in TRP, but here's my honest take on things โ€” given what you've said.

Lots of things that are muddy about the situation.

  • You say she's definitely interested, but you haven't escalated.
  • She has a long-distance BF (does not mean that she will be faithful, long distance relationships are about as stable as a sand foundation)
  • By the fact you're analyzing your actions and what you should/should not do, it's evident that you're putting too much stock in this chick
  • To answer your original question, I would not send any such text

There's more to this than the micro-actions like, "What text is appropriate?" "Should I have said that?"

You'll come to realize that asking those questions themselves is the problem. Do the opposite of what you think you should for awhile...even if you feel like it's mean or cold.

I know it's kinda fucked up, but those little nice-ities like sending good luck wishes before an exam will rob you of any real attraction to this girl.

Read up on "oneitis" because she sounds like your oneitis.

I have a coworker who recently told me he was "working on" a girl too. Whenever I hear that, all I can think of is that he's just playing the "Friend Card" while he waits for the "right moment" and those stories always end the same way.

Spoiler alert, it doesn't end it you getting what you want.

There are so many other prospects out there that could be worth your time. Operate with THAT as your core belief and watch things fall into place more easily.

Let girls qualify themselves to you, not the other way around.

Anyway, hope that helps. Good luck.

[โ€“]DaBrokenMeta 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Fucking A wish i had this yesterday becuz you are goddamn right

Its not over. I know my SMV is beyond that of most out there; ;i am super blessed and lucky in that i have a lot of things going for me man. Genetics, I'm a 10, mixed, naturally intelligent, no girl turns me down.....until i start to like them. Which literally just dawned on me.

It makes so much sense after reading TRP, I have chronic oneitis for certain self-unicornidealized women. Those are the only ones I have trouble with, and it's simply becuz I comprise my true self, to feed my inner dreamer, fantasizing about a future together, and what I can gain from her, like some fucking extortionist.

It's a fact. I can literally attract 90% of women i have yet to come across, but the second i think to myself, i like this girl. Shit implodes

It's in my nature to be good to people and i feel this earnest need to give back to the world, maybe that's why i am in med school, to placate that cliche "giving back to others" mindset.

But it is now evident to me that my approach to life has not been working,and i have been just getting by thanks to the grace of God.

I like to joke that i was maybe born in the wrong era. I am just too nice of a person sometimes man. It's genetic or something, because my mom has it and her mom has it worse.. We are what some people call "kind souls". But i feel like the world sometimes is just so cruel to one another, maybe I am idealist, but i wish this world was kinder to one another. Subverting primal biology, but I guess that isn't the design of the system.

And i feel like everyone is either super guarded or just putting up a show for the world pretending to be this fake version of themselves.

I'm not from Amercia. My family is from Africa and Russia. So my perspective on life is not your average.

But i do agree with the redpill in a lot of the theory. It just makes fucking sense.

My new plan.

Stay in my lane, build my kingdom, and if and/or when these girls try and come back, i'm going for the juglar and taking both the twins for myself with that real shit.

Men build, invent and manage everything on the planet because they are men. Read that text again. It seems like a text from a man, a masculine male who builds, invents and manages and has power and control?

We cannot "set the standard" of female attraction. They are attracted to what they are (which is masculinity, even if they say otherwise) and we can only acknowledge and use it or stay in the dark and send pathetic needy girly texts like this dude that OP's sister ghosted.
