Figured this was as good a place as any to make my first appearance. So let's rock and roll.

First of all my name. I chose bandit for a reason. I've always loved the archetype of the charming rogue, the honorable thief, the antihero. The Robin Hood's and Arsene Lupins. It's an attitude, an unspoken confidence, that I want to mimic. And I've already started.

Which brings me to my favorite hobby. I'm a traceur. For those of you who don't know what that means, I don't blame you. It means I practice parkour. I recommend it to anyone looking to become a better man. The confidence, the fluidity, and the self-awareness you get from it are unprecedented. You move smoother and with more purpose (and yeah, people take notice). You learn exactly what you can and can't do, and knowing your limits is a very important thing to learn. And the confidence is unreal. You feel like a ninja, a spy, a thief. You're untouchable. If you put your mind to it, no one can catch you, and you know it. AMOGs start looking slow and clunky in comparison. Needless to say, parkour has gotten me out of more than a few sticky situations.

In a semi-conscious way, I want to be a gentleman thief like the heroes I idolize. I'm already well on my way to getting the agile movements of a great thief, but I've been wondering how I can improve hone the charming social side. I'm fairly confident, talking to strangers used to be a fun pastime for me. But a 7 month relationship did a good bit of damage my flirting skills. It makes sense I suppose, if you go too long without doing something you're performance is bound to suffer. Through a long series of events I got turned on to the PUA community. At first I wasn't sure, I didn't want to use cheap lines or canned routines to get people to like me. But from what I've read, this is just what I need. I love the self improvement aspect of it and the way that do much of this can be applied not only to meeting girls but to being a more likable person.

So that's what I'm doing here. Like most of you, I'm on a mission of self improvement. Enter Bandit, stage right.
