    Default Need Help With DHV Story

    Hi guys,, beginner here.

    I'm trying to come up with a dhv story about an accomplishment I'm proud of. The concept I've put together so far is:

    -man came to me for help
    -unjustly accused
    -case seemed hopeless because all evidence seemed to be against him
    -if found guilty he would lose his house and all his money
    -I led the defense team (leader of men)
    -we went into battle
    -Emerged victorious
    -I proved he was innocent (protector of the innocent-is that DHV ?)
    -he didn't pay one penny
    -felt awesome to help someone in a way that really counted in their life

    The emotion I felt when I experienced this (and still do) was exhileration at winning a battle when all the odds are against you, and honor at being able to help someone in a profound way, and grateful for the opportunity to have been able to help him. Is this the kind of emotion I would want a woman to experience if I tell such a story or is it off-target?

    This story smacks to me of bragging/impression, which is dlv. Am I wrong? Should I abandon it? I can't think of hardly any DHV stories for myself so I am reluctant to let it go. Can it be fixed? What do you think? How would you improve it? Thanks guys

    Unless you are actually a lawyer and this actually happened, i would personally advise against this. There are so many places that a story like this could go wrong. There are more people than you might realize that know about what lawyers do, like girls who have family/friends that are lawyers, girls that are in or interested in law school, etc., etc. If you ran into someone who knew more about this stuff than you do, you'd be dead in the water.

    It's a true story. I am a lawyer.

    I guess the basic question is, is it even advisable to tell a story of an accomplishment at all. How would you tell the story of an accomplishment without having it sound like bragging? Could anyone give an example of an accomplishment story that works?

    Maybe the way to do it would be to have a story where you make the accomplishment a minor blip in the story, where the point of the story is actually about something else. Something where the conflict and build up and climax of the story is not all wrapped up in the accomplishment. If that is true, then this story can't be fixed because in my story the accomplishment is what the story is all about.

    I get the sense from your reply, and my own thoughts, that I am better off dropping this story as it just isn't going to work.

    Thanks for giving me your input.

    Well, if it's true, i say go for it. You certainly shouldn't have to downplay your accomplishments.

    If this is your favorite story and you really wanna use it, work on a strategy to steer convo in this direction so that it will come up naturally. It's easier when it just flows and you're not caught up in minor details, imo.

    I'm not an expert on the dhv story, though. Maybe someone will chime in and help you tweak it a bit. Good luck out there!

    Your dhv story could work but you will need to re-work it a little bit.

    When a girl asks you, "What made you decide to go into law?"

    Now you have the full license to tell a DHV story. It doesn't have to be true. It's ok to embellish it a little just like most people do on their resume.

    As an example:

    You could talk about an injustice that happened to one of your friends or his family member but they didn't have the money for a good lawyer. It was then at age 16 you vowed to become a lawyer so you could help the underdog come out ahead. Talk about how you have helped some of your clients come out ahead by not charging them money or very little money.

    You will look like a protector and an alpha. Keep the story to 2 minutes or less. The attention span of some girls is very limited.

    I use a DHV story from high school that happened to my friend, instead of him I put myself in the DHV story and it works well with the girls.
