    Awesome question, I didn't really have a true AH HA, moment. I had read about pick up accidently years ago before anybody had really ever heard of Mystery. I was married and just kind of filed it away. Anyway about 5 years later my ex wife went through a mid life crisis and made me leave her, by the time she realized what she had done and wanted me back it was too late, to much damage had been done. I was not going back.

    I'm 34 & single. I want hot young P****y and I was gonna be damned if I didn't get it. So I began my journey in pick up and it has been awesome.

    I do have to laugh at myself before the game. I wasn't terrible, I just squandered so many opportunities..sigh.

    I know what you mean, my problem was that I never really got to have any interaction at all with girls until I hit 16. By that point the whole experience just seemed strange and confusing to me.

    It took me till 20 to realise that my social skills with women were about 4 years behind the norm. There was one girl I was really in love with that messed me about during my teens.

    I'm soo happy I met my ex, even though it didn't work I owe her a lot in terms of actually picking me up and catapulting me about 5 years forward in social skills. She's also a bloody amazing wing.

    I was pretty average with women. Had some really AFC moments and also successful. I'm really into self improvement and learning how to gain control over my life. So naturally...lol.

    A friend of mine hands me a book that looks like a Bible. It read "The Game" by Neil Strauss. I put it on my shelf without thinking too much about it. I was then reaching the end of a very unhealthy relationship and decided to pick it up and read.

    My mind was....blown. Put simply.

    After reading I remember my friend telling me that when I was finished, to contact him to let him know. That he had more stuff for me.

    Shortly after I lost my job and broke up with my gf of 3 1/2 years. And I was HAPPY!! Hated both of them lol. I then spent an entire month in solitude. Not going out. Not talking to anyone. Just reading all the ebooks my friend gave me and playing video games. After that month I went full throttle on trying out my new found knowledge.

    It's been 4 years since that time and I don't regret it. It has really changed my life in every way.

    Wasn't so much a straw. I always considered myself something of a late bloomer when it came to female. I didnt really have any desire to get with a girl to about my sophomore year of high school. Of course the next three years nothing happened. I sort of resigned myself to the notion that while female companionship would be nice but I had zero idea what to do.

    Fast forward to last August and someone recommended reading The Game. I had never even thought of picking up a self help book before, but I gave the Game a shot. The rest is history...

    A few straws lead to the final one so bear with me here lol.

    I had never been particularly good or bad with girls, survived on mere chance alone. About 2 years ago I had been in a dry spell (nearly 18 months, no lay.) During this time I weighed nearly 17 stone. Massive man t**ts, huge gut & no sense of style.

    I decided to change this... Hit the gym hard and got some style. I thought that this alone would serve me well but still no girls to speak of.

    Last August, I and a few friends were out. My friend was speaking to a girl who he knocked back to me as he was taken. I was really AFC. Talking about cliché sh*t like work family life and that. I crashed and burned.

    A few hours later a friend of mine mentioned the game. I read it and that's where I started. However I think it's thanks to this forum that I have really progressed.

    Since getting more game I haven't f-closed yet, but I'm putting myself in more opportunities to do so. Not sure who actually said this but it really resonates with me; 'Game just increases your options'

    For me one of the biggest shocks to the system was that social skills can be learned just like anything else. I thought it was a case of you either have it or ya don't.

    THAT was my lightbulb moment.

    It has always been a process for me. One of my ex's friend's hit me up on FB and wanted me to come drink with her. I drank her monies and got some arse. I was lightly reading at this point but decided I was done with women. I ended up dancing with like 5 girls that night, pulling a girls phone number when another guy was about to take it (she texted me that morning) and getting laid.

    I realized at this point there was something to me. Even being a fatty I AM a cute guy and girls do like me. If anything they are intimidated because they can't just read me and figure me out. Its been up and down since then but I do date higher quality women now, not that the girls I dated before were all low quality by any means other than physical attractiveness.

    Now I'm at that part of my journey where I am truly learning to be on my own (not alone...just not to depend on anyone anymore). I fucking hate calibration. I wish I had a pro around here to help me with that its been fucking up my game for a minute now.

    We should do our most important lessons too I think mine would be to always have walking power. I won't just drop a girl over any little thing she does though. I say give her ass a warning if she does it again its walking time.

    The very first time I asked a girl to a Jr. High School dance, I was rejected with this comment, "Not with you GEEK!"

    At 19 I became a professional musician and finally got some. I didn't try, she initiated the intimacy. Afterwards, I felt more at ease w/women, but didn't have a clue on how to successfully pick one up. But, just by being a musician & performing on stage, women always initiated intimacy

    For a while I kept count of my scores and stopped counting at 200. I was 27. A non-musician friend of mine kept an approximate count after my count till I reached 30. He said I did about 150 more women. My family asked me if I changed GF every week cus they never saw me w/the same woman twice.

    Then at 35 I settled down, had kids and a LTR that lasted 20 yrs. I divorced and felt that age, a beer belly and being out of touch w/singles society would prevent me from being successful w/woman. I went out to local bars and for two yrs I scored a few women (16 to be exact), but I wanted to move it up a couple of notches. I wanted to hit on women between 27 & 35. I was dating women 44 to 55. All HB1 to HB3.

    Then, in my junk mail I got some ad about the 3 words that would get any babe into my bed. It was BS!!! I saw some video where a guy hits on a woman that had fk me written all over her. The following vids had similar ditzy immature chachas that could be lured into anyone's bed w/a condom.

    I surfed the net and found this site and it helped me get back into things. Brought me up to date w/singles society. I came here in March 2012 and have been w/quite a few HB5s+ ages 19 to 27. I have refined my taste and prefer women 37 to 55.

    Coming to this site helped me regain my confidence and shake off the cobwebs.
    Carpe diem!

    Its interesting, I was never very good with girls, always looking and wanting but not understanding how it worked. It was the most alien thing to me and I just thought you had it or not.

    My sisters boyfriend had a book on his shelf called the mystery method: A more condensed version of the game without all the BS. Oh my god it all made sense. I thought I had all the answers. Started applying alpha traits to my life and saw instant improvement. Me and a friend went to the pool one day and there was an all girls b-day party for a girl at our high school. They were all in the hot tub and we joined them. Using my "New Skills" I gamed the group hardcore and had an amazing time. Even being complimented on my game.

    I started going hard from there but eventually realized I need that inner game. That inner core confidence to reach the next level. Today I dont use routines but I never forget what Mystery has done for me.
