This thread is for aspiring pua's. I think you should all know what real PU is all about: it's ups and it's downs. I'm goona talk about the most common and explain how to overcome them. Keep in mind that the downs will happen during the first few months of it, probably before your first f-close and even your first n-close, almost all of them are about your innergame and the effects of it changing. The ups are the result of month of work and overcoming the downs.
AFC's have a slim to none understanding of social psychology. It is normal to feel overwhelmed by just dipping you're toe in it sometimes even get depressed which i will talk about. You'll start to notice IOI's, IOD's,amogs..., you'll know everything that is happening around you through subcommunication and why it's happening and that my friends will scare the shit out of you at first don't worry this will go away on it's own with time. Another way to get overwhelmed is with all the different techniques, terms and knowledge. You can weed out some of the techniques easily just take your alpha male example/role model think to yourself would he do that? If he were to do something along the same line as that what would it be? Beeing overwhelmed with the terms and knowledge will also go away by itself with time.
I remember when I first started, I was 17 and I was blindsided by the "power" of it. What negs, IOD's, challenging, roll offs and above all punishing and rewarding
(aka push/pull) could do to smoking hot 20 something year olds i could only dream about talking to much less kino and believed me my hand would get sore in the shower
after a long day of kinoing . I didn't go for N-closes at first cuz I was afraid I would get caught abou my age. Anyway, I started to skip school and the days i went
to school I could only think about PU hoaning my skills, learning new techniques, coming up with my own, beeing the AMOG wherever i went (Thank God I didn't join any
forum until later)...I didn't do any homework,didn't pay attention in class so my grades started to plummit fast. My parents got a call to come down to the school and
i didn't care. The only thing that stopped me was the realisation that if I continue like that i was not going to graduate. I don't want anyone getting to a point where
they have to take a break from it. Guys, manage your time, know u're limits, don't over exhurt yourself and above all priorities here is a list of my priorities in order:
Understanding what an amog is and the importance of beeing one combined with the self esteem you'll get (especially after starting to get over your aa) will cause your friends to start seeing you in a different way and some of them will not like it so, they will try to demean your DHV's they will argue with you and sometimes if they are really stubborn it will come to blows and u'll find you're group of friends split in three some with you, some against you but most will not wan't any part of it and will want to calm things down. It is normal, you are taking away there dominance in the tribe and they will fight for it. I'm goona say a quote here, you may not like it but it's true, humans are violent in nature no matter how much you dress it up and try to disguise it, it is still there, life is all about dominance. If they are not ready to accept your new dominance they are not truly your friends. Drop them, you will make new and better friends, ones that will not stop your growth.
You'll get harrasement from guys and girls. The guys will want to know what's your secret (never tell them unless they are total AFC's and you trust them with your life) and will want advice and when it works they will want more and more and won't stop. Draw them a line, don't let them harass you put your foot down and say "NO".
Some girls will start seeing you as a player and they will do there best to cock block you from there friends. If you have a girl that is your friend and that has dominance over you (knows you have feelings for her but you don't talk about it) she will start busting your balls about it just like any other amogs, you can't fight her, just turn your back to her and she'll come running back.
Especially if you are sensitive by nature. You will start to see what humans truly are and how primitive and animalistic we really are, I started doubting my faith, you will start feeling that you are changing and you might not want that. The way to overcome theese things is by first accepting the human nature, we are flawed and still primitive. Second you are not changing, you still like what you've always liked and believe in the same things you've always beleived in. You are becoming more confident, powerful and dominant.The only thing that is changing is your "social mask", that means the only thing you are changing is how you are percieved and not who you truly are. The moment the game changes who I truly am I will leave it for good and never look back.
This won't happen over night it will take time, determination and drive: "DON'T GIVE UP!". Only the ones with the strongest wills will get to the point of mastery. Never loose focus.
Bigger social circle:
You will notice people wanting to talk to you more and more just because you are who you are. They will want to go out with you and will want to be your friend. You
might even get to a point where you won't be able to keep up to everyone. You will start getting free invites to classy places you can't afford.
Almost everyone you meet will like you and everyone will respect you. You will become the MAN you always wanted to be.
You will get to a point in which you will be the selector and you won't be able to keep up with the girls and you will give some of them rainchecks which is a wonderful burden to have and the reason you started this journey.
