Like most, I wanted to find peers with the same interest and focus on that interest, nothing more.
I dreamed up a name and went through the registration process using my laptop on a forum. Unlike this forum, I didn't get access straight away. I was sent a message to my email saying I had to write a description of myself to prove I was a real person.
A while later I get an email back saying I need to attend a meeting before I'm granted access to the forum, because of all the 'crazy' people out there they need to screen me to make sure I'm OK.
Now, I was having doubts. As has been mentioned by others, joining the other forum is like jumping through hoops, to me, it felt very controlling. I've joined others forums and never had to go through such lengths to do so. I went to the meeting anyway. I wish I had of listened to my instincts and stayed away.
I made it through the meeting. I kept relatively quiet while there, my thinking is, as mentioned above, I just want to focus on sarging. I can avoid difficult personalities, it shouldn't be a problem. Soon afterwards I got access to the forum. During the next week I briefly went onto the forum, I didn't really have time to do much reading. The forum looked pretty standard.
A meeting was arranged for sarging on Tuesday. I decided to go and get there early to avoid paying in. I didn't know who else was going to be there.
Aside from my wing I was having a great time in this place, I was really happy with how things were going. Then, my wing arrived. If I had to describe the demeanor of my wing I would say he's like an Italian mafia hit-man. Humorlessness, emotionless, shady. However, I ignored my instincts once again hoping I could learn from him, to his credit, he does seem like he gets full success with women and I do want to learn.
I walked around with my wing, he was in the lead. He was warming up making little witty comments as he went, all fine. Then we were back up on the balcony were My wing approached a mixed set. I felt a little nervous but approached a Brazilian girl on the edge of the group. I was happy with the interaction. After we finished with them we walked away and it turns out the girl I spoke with the target. The hit-man was not happy. He offered me some advice, I was happy to take it and we moved on. I had no idea that girl was his target and honestly I felt bad because the last thing I want to do is mess sarges up for people.
My post makes no sense.
