Taking a Hiatus From the Forums
I cannot really come up with a good introduction for this, as I suppose that a good introduction really can't be created for something like this. This forum has been great to me, but I have been doing some planning and thinking on my next course of action in the game and in my life. I have come to a conclusion, and it is in no way negative at all. Starting as of tonight, though, I will be taking a break from the forums; a probable lengthy break, and when I say a break, I mean I won't be online. Period.
As I said, it's nothing wrong with the forum. I love the forums, and they have helped to revolutionize my life. For that, I am forever grateful. Thus, to the readers, I think it's fair to state my reasons to why I am departing for the time being.
Recently I have started college back up again, and things are going way better than I could have possibly imagined. I've met so many new people, and at this moment I got five different girls texting me. By the end of the month, I honestly believe I could actually have a girlfriend that I genuinely like for her.
On the other note, though, I have a course on Vietnam that requires a ton of research and time in order to do a 20+ research paper. In addition, I might be starting up an internship that is important to my major and my future. I decided that if I wanted to accomplish everything that I wanted to, some things had to go.
Every now and again, I think it's really necessary for an artist to revolutionize everything that it means to be himself. Once we master the game, we can get stuck in the same boring routine and same boring lifestyle every single day, but what new things are we really learning?
For a while now, I've been changing, and I've been telling people about my changes in philosophy and goals. I really want to take my game to the next level, to a completely new understanding that I honestly do not believe that this forum, or any forum for that matter, can possibly give to me. This is a path to enlightenment that one must find in himself, and I will not be content until I find that enlightenment within my own being.
I don't want to be a pick-up artist, and I don't want to become a dating guru. I want to become something far more than that. What it is, I honestly can't say I know at the moment.
If there are any last bits of advice I can impart on you rookies before I head out on my journey, it is this: Whenever you're stuck, read a book. I can't tell you how many times I had a sudden revelation just by finding something in a book that I had never seen before. If any of you are stuck for any reason, just go to one of the recommended books on the site and read through it, check it out, see what YOU can learn!
Do not worry, I will be back. No matter if I have a girlfriend or not, I will be back to help out all the men who need it. I will guarantee you though that when I come back, the Swagman will be stronger and better than he ever was
Until then, I'll see you all on the flip-side. Game on brothers.
