    Default The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back: What was Yours?

    As the thread is titled, I want to know from all of you out there: what was that exact moment that spurred you into the world of PUA? What was the straw that broke the camel's back for you?

    To begin this thread, I will give my story:

    Back in November, I was about to ask this girl out. We had been chatting for a week, and I was pretty much convinced that she was going to be the one. And then, with no explanation whatsoever, she stopped talking to me. After a few weeks of trying to lay back, not text her as much because of her exams, and so on, her best friend sends me a message telling me to back off and that I was needy.

    For a month after that, I was a wreck. I had no idea why she did that to me, and I couldn't see what I did wrong. Nowhere in my texts did I look needy, and nothing I had said made me look needy. I wasn't even sure what I did in the first place to even cause the downward spiral. I was convinced that I would never try to go after another woman, and that I would just be alone for the rest of my life. Every single day for that month I felt like there was a black hole in my chest sucking away at me and bringing me endless pain.

    No matter how hard I fought, it just would not go away, and eventually I fell for a girl on facebook that I had never met before. Being a pure AFC at the time, I consulted some friends and asked them what to do or if they could get us acquainted. Needless to say, it did not work.

    And then, sometime in mid-January, around midnight and as I was sitting next to an almost dead fire in my living room, I was contemplating the situation by my lonesome. My friends could not help me, and I did not know anything. I was angry because I was forcing myself to not act, and there was no way for me to act.

    Then, I had my light bulb moment.

    I then thought about the internet and how someone, somewhere, probably had the same problem I did. But it didn't stop there. I then contemplated "you know, I wonder if there are books or something on being successful with women?" After a quick Google check, that's when I ran into Neil Strauss and the world of PUA.

    From there, you can safely assume that the rest is history.

    Long story short my girlfriend and I broke up and I remembered all those times girls were interested in me but I didn't act on it because I had been in a relationship. I saw a girl at work and decided I would try and get her, but the situation was less then ideal so I went online for advice on how to go about getting her, and here I am.

    Girl texted me out of the blue, clearly she was interested. Hung out with her a couple times, didn't talk much, didn't escalate. She lost interest and I became severely depressed because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. Did a quick google search, came across David D's beginner ebook, and my life has changed since. Even though now I'm sad about not being able to close, I know I'll get past this block eventually

    Went to college to do my A levels and one of the older guys I was mates with was into it, he showed me and my mate the ropes and the students rapidly bypassed the master, then at 18 I fell in love and went totally AFC lol, when we split up I decided to really up my game to an entirely new level and joined the forums and got really involved in the community in a way I never was before. Pick up has literally made me the man I am today, I actually can't imagine life without it lol

    I'm the cliché, I picked up the Game. It changed my life... genuinely haha.

    My problem was always an overwhelming lack of self-belief and self-confidence which. I believed I was ugly, had no chance with women, wasn't cool enough etc etc. I then read the game and a month later after years of trying, I got my first girlfriend.

    We eventually broke up after a year as it just wasn't right, I was still learning how to have a relationship so it was doomed from the offset haha.

    But she completely changed my life and I will love her forever for it (not in that way, but with gratitude if you catch my drift). She gave me all the self confidence I lacked, completely shattered my self doubt and limiting beliefs. We are still good friends and still talk now and again. She keeps telling me how much I've changed and how much she loves the new confident version of me.

    So really for The Game got me to a meaningful girl, she undid the damage I did to myself. I'm grateful for both

    let's see ... I had just moved to a different country and started college ... for a year and a half I was single, depressed, and on a real bad downward spiral.

    One day, I was talking to one of my friends on the phone, telling him my problems and he was like "you have to see this dude on tv, he's teaching other dumb guys like you how to pickup chicks!" ... I do a google search, I find mystery's first season, watch a few episodes, and even though it had a weird vibe to it (if you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about, it just is ... weird! - more weird than the real pickup material), but that got me searching on google, and here I am! ^^

    cheers to all of you, amazing people out there!
    Let's get our lives back!

    I got you guys beat lol.

    Fell in love at 18 with a 22 year old hb8. Prettiest girl i or my friends knew. Kinda ditzy at times but good personality. Told her i liked her and she strung me along. Even had a party once with two other guys who liked her also. She clearly liked the attention. Her best friend felt sorry for me (in hindsight i think she wanted to get back at the HB) and told me the HB had told her everything i said. Devastated i just froze her out ot my life. She marries later on.

    Flash forward 10 years. I make contact over phone. She remembers me and is super excited. She is divorced lives 4 hrs away. We talk every month or so. She totally was into me and even tho i was still AFC, i could see it. Strong ioi's. I set up a date. She drives to see me and hang. We were with friends so no chance to isolate. Being afc i just thought of her as a friend so no kino or anything. She leaves. We communicate by phone more than ever. And again i fell for her. She immediately gives Freeze Out. Loses all interest. Ends up marrying a soldier and moving overseas.

    Not done yet! So one day a beautiful client at my job comes in. She had been into me awhile. Looks like jessica alba... i mean same lips eyes smile. Except this hb has FAKE BOOBS lol. She starts flirting with me again. Being afc i basically think she is playing with me. But she asks me to feel her new boobs. And i pretty much escalated to a heavy makeout. She was shocked and uncomfortable (this was in my office). No one saw tho. She pushes away leaves and i txt her a ton for a followup. No response.

    I came here after that through finding david d. I couldnt understand why girls wanted me but not the ones i wanted. Its like when i didnt care if a girl liked me, she did but if i did she was repulsed. Learned alot since then lol

    Amen to that. I can't possibly begin to imagine what my life these past four months would have been like without this. Even though she was a bitch, I'm almost tempted to thank that girl for what she did to me. It really forced me to look at my own problems, and I'm now a better man and way happier because of it.

    After a devastating breakup who lasted for months and 35-40 extra lbs later , i decided it was time to get my act together. I have dramatically changed my routine . I sold my gaming consoles , i changed my eating habits , i started working out again , i took a few wrong turns in my life so i decided to finish high school and go to college !

    all these changes happened during the beginning of January , my life is so MUCH better nowadays , i know there is a girl out there i will fall deeply in love with , i do not want to be this AFC i became to be over the years , in the meantime i am enjoying the single status life (minus not being able to bring back girls to my place as i am back with my parents-_-).

    Haha to be honest, Iv like never had like hardly any interactions with women without pick up,I feel I'm lucky in this way as I haven't spent years of my life being a total AFC, even if I did fuck up with my ex. I think pick up develops you in so many ways other than just with girls. And all the haters out there need to take a look at their life and realise what little bitches they are being
