I don't even know where to start. Over the past years, I've lost countless friends to girls. It's always the same story. They seem like reliable and cool guys, until they get attention from a girl. Once that happens, it's like they become another person. They become a shell of their former self, I don't even recognize them anymore.
I've had friends who give up on their dreams and goals, just so they can spend more time with their girl. Other friends don't even leave their house anymore. I'm not even kidding when I say that I have friends who just work their dead end job, play video games, and sit at home with their girlfriend. When you try to make plans with them, they always flake or come up with a ridiculous excuse.
It just bamboozles me how their mind works, are they genuinely happy? We know that girls come in and go out of our lives. I'd never give up my dreams, goals, or friends for a girl, because I value these things more than some random girl. It's actually funny, because these guys are staying with their girl 24/7, out of fear of losing them. They think that this is the best way to keep a girl around, but they don't realize that the opposite is true. If anything, being too available is the best recipe for your girl to lose all her attraction towards you.
I'm not even kidding when I say that I haven't seen my 'best friend' in years. I'd do everything with him. Play sports, work out, travel, pick up girls, ... But once he got a girlfriend, it's been impossible to set up plans with him. Another friend has been flaking on me lately, because he started hanging out with two girls from our class in university. I make plans with him, only for him to flake on me, spend time with those girls, pretending to be their friend, just so he has a chance of getting into their pants, it's absolutely pathetic.
Like I said, it's always been the same story. I cut off these unreliable friends, meet new guys, and it's the same thing. Maybe I expect too much from friends. I've been using this time to work on myself. Working out, reading, meeting new people, studying, improving my SMV, ... But honestly, this journey feels so lonely. I miss having my group of close male friends who you can rely on. How to deal with this?

They have scarcity mindset and think if they spend 2.5 seconds away from their girl they'll get dumped. That and they end up going through mental and emotional torment they're not willing to share. Their relationships start out honey moon and then they internally start rotting from within. You don't see it till their relationships overtly start falling apart.
You deal with it by accepting you became friends with blue-pillers. You appreciate the good times for what they were and then you focus on meeting men who don't piss their lives away the second they meet a chick.
It sucks but your solution is to accept how many men you are close to are plugged in and make more wise friending decisions after you yourself are unplugged from the matrix
Some of my best friends of all time have done this. It blows. But that's reality. How men act is also a red pill. TRP isn't just a woman's game. The red pill also discusses much about how men really work too.
There is nothing wrong with feeling the disappointment you do. All of us have lost plugged in friends to women. You're not alone

Thanks for your reply, feels good that I'm not the only one experiencing this. And yup, the only solution is to accept it, and focus on men who don't do this, but it's super rare nowadays.
But what pisses me off the most, is when things go bad between them and their girlfriends, they come back and act like nothing has happened. I can't imagine ditching someone for my girlfriend, and when things go bad, just casually hitting up my friends, expecting them to be there for me, after abandoning them.

Many years ago when I was in uni, I had a friend (or so I thought). The guy was the epitome of reliability (or so I thought).
The strange thing is that he always liked to assume the position of the wiser guy, helping out and being genuine. Funny thing though, we would always get into these religious debates (I'm muslim and he's born christian) and he prided himself on being an atheist, defending the scientific dogma and the cult of the white coats bla bla bla.
There was this chick I had a thing going on with, and did not want anymore. I also knew the past stories of that girl, or what she hides behind that innocent cutsy vulnerable face of hers.
I figured I'd introduce them and I regret that.
The guy transformed. Once a fervent atheist, he stated going to sunday sermons with her. All of his convictions and passionate opinions evaporated with one whiff of that girls' pussy.
He changed waaay too much and even the people who knew him from before could not recognize him.
Needless to say, we lost trust in him. His personality was a sham all along.
Not even a month into the relationship he payed for her vacation, introduced her to his parents and all that bullshit. If only he knew the skeletons she had in her closet.
And even if he did, it wouldn't change anything. He'd ignore it, too enamored with his slightly above average second hand girl.
Betas are pathetic.

Get used to it. You don't have to cut them off but expect just a phone call every few years or maybe a night out for dinner and drinks. I have a friend of 30 years and I give him plausible deniability to get out away from his wife. Going golfing, drinks with co-workers, etc.

I have the same problem. I basically expect it at this point. My friends are pretty fucking stupid and always become super pussy-whipped once they get a girlfriend. I think the best thing to do is be supportive and don't call them out for their bitchness because they WILL cut ties with you for the bitch every time. I noticed that when I was supportive, they started to come around and make time to talk to me because they know I won't bash them even if they deserve it. You also have to remember that these guys likely aren't red-pilled and they put women on a pedestal.
