Friends Like These

RT, I just finished reading Playing Friends and I was wondering, what would be a good way to tell a woman that you don’t accept her “olive branch”?

Should I ever encounter this situation, I would like this tool in my arsenal. The best reply I can think of would be “That’s not a good idea” and walk away.

Any better phrases out there? What is the ideal “level” of confrontation to use?

As I said in that essay, when you do decline a LJBF a certain amount of tact has to be involved. Any overt ‘in your face’ response will prompt an equally overt confrontational response. The trick is to convey your non-acceptance of her offer in as covert a fashion as possible, but still courteous or at least “business-like.”

The first obstacle men have to get over is that LJBFs are rejections. They are not genuine offers of some kind of enduring friendship. This goes back to what I’ve written about intergender “friendships”, and a lot of AFCs get it into their heads that they’re going to buck a trend and actually be ‘besties’ with their LJBF girl. I’ve already covered most of this in that essay so I wont go back over that, but the natural inclination for most men when faced with a rejection – that most often comes after a very long period of “sniper mentality” – is to opt for the path of least resistance and certainly the one which will make him and her the least uncomfortable. Women know this. This is precisely why a LJBF has been proven so effective for generations. It gives both parties an acceptable out, or on his part, an out that at least blunts the rejection.

The Process

The problem with all this is that the LJBFed guy is caught in the process without ever having understood that he’s playing a predictable part in a feminine social convention. So he sees the LJBF as an event rather than what it really is, a feminine-approved socially permissible mechanism for rejection. As a guy gets consistent LJBFs he begins to see the process, but all this comes after having had exclusively invested himself in the LJBF girl up until the point of the rejection. This is where the “frustrated” part of AFC comes from; his investment.

That’s the first part; a man has to recognize the LJBF for what it is. This is part of the learning process because a guy has to also do some very important self-analysis at this point. Most chumps will self-evaluate and try to find flaws in their sniping. “She might have accepted me if I had done X, Y & Z to prove I’m worthy of her.” Rather, a guy ought to self-realize why he was in a potential LJBF situation in the first place. I’ll tell you now, if you got a LJBF rejection, odds are you went about the process wrong. You sniped, you pined, you most certainly placed yourself into a position of qualifying yourself to her and thus handed her the frame from the outset. As I’ve mentioned in some previous essays, you most probably believed the lie about “women needing to feel comfortable with a guy” and jumped past the uncomfortable sexual tension of attraction directly into the comfort of rapport and familiarity.

Now, I’m outlining all of this again to emphasize that any response you can give a woman issuing the LJBF rejection should be done so from a position of complete awareness. It’s not the actual words you say so much as you understand how you got to the point of a LJBF rejection. In other words you are most likely, at least partially, responsible for allowing it to get to the point of you having to counter-reject her LJBF.

“No, thanks.”

So then how do you go about it? Some have offered the blunt “I have enough friends” line, but you’ll deal with the social fallout of such an overt counter-rejection and most likely get the “you’re an asshole response”. Depending on how comfortable you are with that I’d say it’s fair game, but don’t expect her not to behave like this. Women’s easiest recourse at that point would be to think all you were interested in was fucking her. I realize how shitty that seems, particularly when most guy’s getting the LJBF are there after having tried for months to get to the point of pressing the issue of intimacy and applying all the effort and personal investments (not limited to just missing other better opportunities). How could she possibly come to the conclusion that all you wanted was to get in her pants? It’s her only social acceptable, ego-preserving recourse, despite all you did to “prove” yourself up to then.

There’s couple of better ways however. One is allowing her to deliver the LJBF and let it roll off. You don’t have to be a prick and say “thanks, but no thanks.” You could simply let the rejection go and strategically withdraw – so long as you think you can do so. Cut off all contact and move on to spinning plates as you should have been anyway. This is simple pragmatism, if not a bit introverted, but the end result is the same – she gets the message that you’re no longer wasting yourself on her as a cause.

The other way is a the assertive counter rejection. This is not an overt “I have enough friends” response, but rather a drawing of attention to the social contrivance she’s using and explaining it to her in direct terms.

After her LJBF, you can say, “I really wish I could be your friend, but I’d really thought we meant more to each other than that after so long, and honestly, I’m looking for more. Sorry, but I guess I was wrong about you.”

I wouldn’t use this verbatim as some kind of script to follow, but this approach effectively puts the onus of the rejection back on her and makes her aware of the LJBF as a rejection. It’s very similar to a neg hit in that it puts her into a position of not qualifying for your own intimacy. The idea is to defuse any “he just wanted to fuck me” ideas and draw attention to it as a rejection. The problem with a LJBFs as a social convention for women is that it’s gotten to a point where it’s a default, autonomous response, and not a real rejection of intimacy. It’s become such a useful tool that women no longer understand the latent function of it. When they’re made aware of it, in a responsible way, recognizing the rejection aspect is unavoidable. In a rational world it’s a Man’s responsibility to approach, initiate, be decisive, etc. with a woman, it should be incumbent on a woman to give him a straight rejection or acceptance of his approach. Unfortunately not all of us are mature enough at any given stage to do so, so we develop social contingencies to cope with uncomfortable circumstance.

Go Dark

All this said, even after delivering an assertive counter, you MUST stick to your choice. You can only walk away with your self-respect and her own respect for as far as you’re willing to follow through with it. Cut off attention, focus on other things, take some time for yourself, analyze how you came to be in the LJBF position, etc.

She will try to get you back as a friend (see: beta orbiter), for her own ego preservation if nothing else. Do not allow this. It’s not her punishment, it’s not spite, it simple utility. The longer you entertain her the longer you will be paralyzed. You will be in limbo because you refuse to see her behaviors are her message, not her words. When extinguishing a behavior, in behavioral psychology, subjects universally attempt novel behaviors in order to reestablish a previous reward / reinforcer that prompted the prior behavior. This is called an Extinction Burst. People will do this too. The AFC will step up his efforts in new ways in order to prove his merit for intimacy, and women will be flirtatious and accommodating in ways they never thought necessary in order to reestablish prior attention levels they enjoyed before a takeaway. Be prepared for this.

Yes, you do like the attention. You can get rid of an orbiter by giving him a nuclear rejection, but you wont do that because

1. you don’t want to look like or be a bitch,
2. your orbiters are your useful idiots for attention, validation, and dirty work.

Seriously guys, if you get LJBF’ed , why strategize a reaction? The chick obviously thinks you’re not good enough for her vagina. Not much you can do about it. Just leave her alone, and move on with your life. And don’t be “friends” with her, that’s just dumb; men and women aren’t supposed to be friends, they’re only supposed to fuck.

A good answer to LJBF is, “What do you have to offer as a friend?” Most likely she’s going to answer with something solipsic like, “My personality,” or “My company.” To which you just say, “Not interested.” and leave. Sets the tone, and reminds her that she’s not really friends with the guys in her life.

Sometimes she’ll respond with something useful, like she’ll introduce you to her hottie social circle, she has club connections, or discounts where she works, but this is rare.

LJBF is not necessarily an ending and there’s no reason to get nasty about it. When I was interested in my now wife, she and I dated a couple times, she didn’t bite and tried to LJBF me. I told her “I don’t want to be your friend. You know I want more than that. Let me know when you are interested.” and I walked away.

Great post, as always, Rollo. The takeaway message in “Going Dark” is spot-on, in my experience. It’s always amazing to see the pendulum swing to the other side when she amps up her accommodation & flirtation. This is how ‘hand’ is gained. I’ve had women pursue me after months and even years of being ‘dark,’ and inevitably for relationship rather than something casual. It’s quite the player ninjitsu to then turn that into an emotionally connected, yet unfenced relationship while continuing to spin other plates. This is how harems are born.

I’ve only had one LJBF since the separation/divorce (not an uber-successful player, just have a lot going on). She was a woman I met online and went out to watch March Madness at a bar. I was probably three months into Red Pill. She seemed nice enough, so I talked about getting together again. She LJBFd. More out of instinct, I responded as if she asked to borrow my truck for the weekend.

The other interesting idea on this subject was put forth by AB Dada in the comments here or on Roissy’s blog. His strategy is to pre-emptively LJBF the hottest girls he comes across, truly becomes ‘friends’ with them, infiltrates their social circles (a DHV itself), then actively games her hot friends, generating preselection. This is not a strategy for beginners, it’s a very advanced strategem that seems to have come from the chess board, but I can see the massive value here in creating new social circles.

As many have stated, the idea of being actual “friends” with a woman is laughable, and I have never needed nor wanted a female friend.

If you’re projecting sexual intent (talking to her “man to woman” instead of “friend to friend” or “woman to woman” lol), you won’t get Friend Zoned. She’ll either fuck you or bail entirely, because she knows that being around you means she’s going to end up fucking you. So if she has a BF and would feel guilty cheating etc, she won’t offer the LJBF olive branch because she knows you guys will fuck if you “hang out”.

most likely ljbf is just a convenient and socially acceptable form of rejection, but i do think that since there is no reason a man’s value can subsequently increase after the rejection, it is worth her keeping him in earshot to check up on his value occasionally. actually being friends is more than likely the result of a fail, but if there’s one thing that i’ve learnt from game its that there are no right or wrong actions, its entirely how you frame it internally, so if hypothetically, ljbf happened to someone with an alpha internal frame, he may be… Read more »

L.J.B.F might be a case of the punishment fitting the crime. The crime: having no idea what so ever.

excellent point, acting alpha in a situation where she has made a decision that you have persistently acted beta for her to come to that decision is not likely to suddenly flip the situation, you will need to re-establish yourself, which takes time, although a good response is a good start. or better, move on.

Give us a tiny window into the female mind or sensory system in regards to orbiters.
What feeling do they produce inside the female body?
Let me guess you feel a sense of elevation but with a strong underling comfort, a sprinkling of smugness, satisfaction, mild superiority and a dash of disdain – or some thing different. And where does this feeling emanate? – deep down inside you or does it spread out from the center of you. Is there more of a glow to the feeling from vicarious orbiters? I am curious to the female experience.

The odd thing is in my beta chump (ok omega) past, I had two girls who would follow me around on campus, knowing that they had boyfriends I simply presumed they wanted to be one of the guys and treated them accordingly.

Well after several months of this out of the blue they went nuclear on me, tore me a new arsehole and labelled me as a useless virgin (which was true).

I guess women hate being LJBF as much as men, you get more respect when they know you want to fuck them.

If they come home from the gym and shovel in ice cream and wine, they’ll stay overweight.

Why do you bother changing your name?

You do realize that your gravitar picture stays constant even you change names right?

Last time I got the LJBF line was through IM. It was something alone the lines of: “Could we break up and start everything again as friends because you are my best friend?” My answer: Just tell me when I can go to pick up my stuff She kept trying: Can’t you answer? Me: Last Saturday I was your [sweet nickname] two days later I am your perfect friend, Just tell me when I can pick my stuff. Already told you that with me there are no more possibilities. I give everything or nothing. She then started telling me how… Read more »

And I forgot to add a question regarding a situation I was involved. Don’t know if that is the place to ask but has a lot to do with LJBF. To be LJBF can work as some weird preselection too within a group of friends? When I moved to a foreign country a girl and I started seeing each other until I was LJBF. Insterestingly though, as the time went by in a 1 year span I dated 2 of that girl’s best friends (and could have dated 2 more but I wasn’t interested). I remember that after the incident… Read more »

Spin plates at all times. I spin 3-8 plates at all times using the online dating thing plus a few chicks on the go at all times. If one were to even attempt to LJBF me, I’d laugh and stock the pond with another by the weekend. Banged a chick Monday and a different one Tuesday….and I’m a single dad.

And I though I was the only one who noticed the imbalance between in-shape men and women.

It is quite a testament to the sad state of today’s SMP that so many women can afford to neglect the only thing that gives them any real value.

Is LJBF like LGBT? Grrrrrrrl Says What looks like the latter. Lesbians and Gays who preach to us straight peeps about heterosexual relationship dynamics, such as The Female Masculinist and Camille Paglia, are a hoot!!!!

Let them get married to the opposite sex first, then we’ll talk, yo.

“The comments to that video are proof of what Roosh keeps saying about how social media are ruining today’s women. You’d think it was a video of Kathy Ireland in her prime crawling around a beach instead of just a fairly decent chick doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING INTERESTING.”

She could stand to do a few crunches in the mid-abs, and perhaps a better hairstyle. Kinda meh.

“She’s sexy so I gave it another go and managed to get her naked that night stopping just short of sleeping together.”

How the hell does one get a woman naked and stop just short of screwing her? Did she blow you at least?

I recently had a “relapse” with an ex BPD – self-admitted/diagnosed – and it’s fucked me up. She assaulted me after non stop hooking up for 4-6 days/nights. Her anger/violence was unjustifiable and is impossible to explain. I know what she’s capable of, and I fear for those who may interact with her in the future. Mainly I feel that her actions need result in what consequences are due. Were I to behave as she did, I’d be in prison. Were she unable to be subdued by me she’d have surely killed me or herself. I know she is only… Read more »

Shouldn’t one who wrongs another be justly dealt the hand they’ve violently prompted given?

My opinion is that you are emotionally wrapped up in the BPD woman and you want to save her. I think that’s why you went back to her. I don’t think it was the sex since you are able to get that without her. The problem is that you can’t save her and in fact she is like a person grasping for help in a quicksand pit, all she will do is drag you to your doom as well as it has mind fucked you. You somehow have to let her go completely. BPD requires medication and she has to… Read more »

I don’t know what this means but don’t do anything to her.

Run away and never contact her again. She is your poision. Run away as fast as possible. She is not worth it, you are worth 10000 times more.

Here’s a woman who’s been LJBF’d by her male friend whom she’s crushing on; Radlove says: September 18, 2012 at 12:46 pm Erika, How would this translate into this scenario: I am deeply attracted to a man in a 3.5 year friendship, where, altho I sense mutual attraction, he insists it is only a friendship. As a result, I feel like I am being treated as less than a princess, because “just friendship” means no handholding, no kissing, no gifts, and little time together. My intuition tells me “just friendship” is only a defense mechanism, not his reality. And, along… Read more »

Yeah I gotta comment. Not all children and certainly not all cultures are created equal.

United States children and its “culture” proves that.

Confused says “I shot up with heroin again lately, even though I know it’s dangerous and that I only did it out of weakness. But I couldn’t help myself – despite the dangers, the rewards are sooo high! What should I do?”

Furious’ advice above was perfect. Don’t seek retribution. Cut off all contact. And stop pretending that you don’t understand the nature of heroin.

@ Cheshirecat Because the entire time she was enjoying it but also telling me to stop and kept putting up road blocks and I figured getting her naked was a good progression for one night and sex was imminent. Little did I know her hamster would begin running the next day and blame me for being too aggressive, which I was. She’s the high maintenance type where you need to invest x amount of $ to get v and I was already 3 dinners deep by the second time around so I was tired of investing. My fault for even… Read more »

God that orbiter video of Ashley was painful to watch, especially all the nervous chuckles. Ugh, poor guy…thing is he’s probably a nice dude who would reject any Game teachings as stuff only assholes would do. To the guys who are approaching girls but it’s not translating to lays and you can just FEEL that there’s no sexual tension in your interactions, THIS is what it looks like to outside observers. Step up the sexuality in your game, it’s the difference between ending up like this guy and fucking the girl. On the subject of girls getting fat and hitting… Read more »

@Confused Left you a reply at Heartiste. @Team-Red “Little did I know her hamster would begin running the next day and blame me for being too aggressive, which I was.” Did the same thing in a similar situ. Girl I knew when I was an AFC used to tease me and keep me as an orbiter. Then I moved away and learned PUA stuff. Came back to visit and she invited me over at 3am to “hang out”. I kissed her and we made out for a while, till SHE suggested us moving to her bed. Grinded and fooled around… Read more »

As a current beta orbiter, border line AFC suffering from Oneitis. This is difficult medicine to swallow. Admitting the problem is the first step to recovery. I am currently working through the “Extinction Burst”…… its tough to see and internalize everything on the post and the comments. Yet I haven’t read a post on this blog which is untrue to my experience…..

Many thanks!

BPaul: Most of us know what it’s like: the way she runs through your head over and over, how you analyze every conversation you had and have thousands of “if only I had”‘s, the knot in your gut if you involuntarily imagine her with someone else, thinking “I know a lot of women are like that, BUT NOT HER!”

You’ve found dudes here who will help you get over it. Its hurts, but it works.

Keep working on it. I know how you feel and it gets easier. It can be painful to look in the mirror but that is the first step.
