Each time a woman knows her man has other options (be it other women, friends or some hobby), it’s unintentional dread game. Each time she knows he will not tolerate bullshit if she chooses to throw some his way, it’s unintentional dread game. Although I think a blue pill feminist will disagree and say it’s just an equal relationship. I think it’s both. IMO, the argument is almost entirely semantic.
A man doesn’t have to engage in conscious manipulation to create a feeling of dread in his woman. But if he does, it’s not all wrong. To let the woman know that you don’t stick around to tolerate bullshit is just standing up for yourself. And making sure she knows you have other options is just a reminder of your value, and that you’re not needy. It’s a way to stop giving a little, when the person isn’t acting very appreciative of it.
I heard bluepillers say breaking up is better than manipulation. I think it’s highly debatable. Is it a horrible immoral evil to make someone feel uncomfortable for a while? Also, for some people, breaking up would be breaking apart a family or/and becoming impoverished. And some people just want to make it work. Might as well try one last time to fix it. You can always go back to how things were, if you don’t like it, and THEN break up.
