Whenever I do something and my subconscious kicks in I always remember my uncle's famous sayings.
So I thought that we should have a thread for such:
If you really care for a target, you have to be able to lose her, as if you lose her and get her back she was yours to begin with.
I think thats true, a lot of men who come to this forum do not approach relationships/women/strangers this way. First part of PUA or being social is to be yourself. PUA helps to give you that polish look but your core/inner workings remain the same.
One of the HBs that I am dating sh1t tested me a few times and went all the way to friend-zoning me. I didnt make a big deal about it. Thought about it with Aut', gain some insight and adjusted my approach, I told her 'wow is about damn time ... finally now I can farking relax but we still arent friends though sorry'. She told me she was hurt with my choice of words and I freezed her out for a couple days. We ending up farking and laughing about it after and she asked me again 'Why didnt you want to be my friend?', I told her 'friendship is earned not assigned'.
So in conclusion, you have to be able to risk it all. Its good to brush sh1t off your chest, and move on it will make you into a better you.
