All of my best friends have.
I haven't had any close friends in about 4 years because of it. I don't trust people and wont let them in for fear of them stabbing me in the back.
Acquaintances, girls I might've been initially attracted to. They're not in my inner circle nor a very big part of my life. They don't have the leverage to stab me in the back.
Like my friend Dan. He was a close friend. I let him stay at my house and he stole some of my shit. I never spoke to him again and it wasn't worth it to send any message since I ended up moving out of that area anyway.
Or my friend Charles, who taught me martial arts [the little I know], stole my stereo system. I had trusted him [since I had known him since 10th grade and at this point I was 22] enough to leave the speakers at his house. I used to be his room mate, when I moved out he said I wasn't taking them with me and physically prevented me from taking them. I had no legal proof they were mine either, so if I did anything to get them back the court would see it as me stealing from him.
These are people Close to me [my best friends] fucking me over because I trust them.
Darshawn, the guy I used a fake face book to beat up, is fat and out of shape. He's not very smart either. He doesn't know how to fight very well also. Beating him up wasn't difficult for someone who works out and does martial arts.
It's not that I'm giving BS or contradictions as much as you're trying to find leverage to show you're better off than me and create a contrast. At least this is how I'm perceiving it.
What you're saying is Bull shit.
I never said you aren't getting results and don't care about your bragging about how many girls you're getting. I said that your advice isn't useful.
If you ask Michael Jordan how to shoot a basketball and he says "You gotta man up and just gotta feel it." I would say it's total horse shit and bs advice with absolutely no substance. This doesn't mean that he has a bad shot, just that his advice sucks balls.
If her says "You aim the elbow of your shooting hand at the hoop, use your other hand to guide the ball, shoot it up so it has less chance of being blocked or bouncing out of the rim as it comes down, aim at the back of the rim, Flick your wrist for rotation to the ball to decrease the chance of it bouncing out of the rim, use your legs for more power, and have the same foot as your shooting arm forward to help aim." I wouldn't say that was bs advice. That's advice that someone can read and apply.
You don't seem to understand what I'm saying.
You may get results and have girls etc. etc.. That doesn't make you a good teacher. Nor does it make your advice any less bullshit. Pointing out that you get results and saying that this means that your advice is good advice [even though it's very very vague and abstract] makes me think you lack reasoning skills. In other words, YOU'RE FUCKING STUPID.
Getting girls isn't a sign of intellect either. Some of the smartest people I know, struggle with girls. Some of the dumbest people I know get them all the time.
Try to say something that's more concrete. Think about what you're doing that working, not something abstract like "manning up brah." Or "giving 110%" or "Cowboying up" or "Being a man." Those are all very abstract phrases.
Something like "Ask open ended questions instead of yes or no questions because the open ended questions give a longer more interesting response that people like to get involved in. You get the know the other person, and you can talk about their reply, rather than a simple yes, or no." Or maybe "Try to stand out, fashion wise. Were something that's not traditional for the area you're in and it will catch other people's attention."
Or even "somewhere in the conversation play the question game. The rules you explain to her are that you can't ask a question someone asked you and the questions have to be interesting. You gradually get more and more sexual with the questions [pssss, examples are also a good thing to use when trying to teach someone things or giving advice. It helps give a reference]. e.g. Ask how old she was when she had her first crush, then ask her to tell you about her first kiss, then her favorite place on her body to be kissed, and so one. Also if she's talking about the answers, this is good, the game is letting you get to know each other and you're making the conversation more sexual."
You know, things like that. Those are much more concrete and empirical than abstract emotionally driven advice like "You gotta man up." That's pretty pointless bs. Since you're into PUA I'm assuming you should understand that what a phrase like "man up" means to one person isn't the same for everyone. Most emotional phrases don't have a universal meaning and thus are very shitty phrases for advice.
I'm sure as hell glad you don't write text books. I'd have to read a Chemistry book talking about how you "gotta man up and mix these chemicals and shit to get that reaction and then BOOM!!!!".
