Re: Best dating advice i got today
When I read this, the phrase "If someone told you to go jump off a cliff, would you do it?" comes to mind. Of course jumping off a cliff wouldn't get you a girl (unless you were a base jumper and girls found that super awesome), but the point of the following is this:
Just because you read something does not necessarily mean you have to follow it.
Mystery recommends using negs to pick up girls. I don't follow that. 50 Cent says you should punish people if they don't give you the reaction or outcome that you desire. I don't follow that. It's a matter of determining what you like the best. If you think a certain piece of advice fits with you better than another one, then take it.
Sometimes, you will even run into the circumstance where you have no idea which one you should choose. I have run into this problem before, and I have discovered that your best bet is to read more about it, and maybe even post about it on the forums. An exchange of opinions over it with those experienced in the game can really give you some good insight and guidance.
In relation to the topic on hand, masturbation can be both productive and counterproductive. It just depends on who you are. The lack of sex can either drive you to do some successful game, or it can ruin your game by making you too outcome-dependent. It's all up to you on whether you want to do it or not, just be aware of what cold-turkeying will do to you.
