Shadows on the Goalpost
This is EXACTLY like Plato's Allegory of the Cave right now. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's Plato's belief that what we view in society is obscured, and that those who see the truth will be punished and exiled.
I have two friends who I hang out with that don't believe that my stuff works. They see me becoming more and more successful with women, yet they think my stuff, especially negs, are really bad.
I'm not really complaining about it. If everyone in the world were successful with women, there would be no need for this art. I often view my attempt to get at women as a game. Before coming across the idea of transforming myself into a pickup artist, I always thought of the game as having unfair rules and just being rigged to cause me to fail. Now, I'm just simply changing the rules so I can run the game I want it to.
