    Default I wasn't happy with me. So I decided to stop being me.

    You ever looked at the past and thought, "Damn! What the hell was I thinking?"

    I'm willing to bet every bit of my modest paycheck on it you have. What happens when this becomes common place? This phrase seems to become a repeated soundtrack to your interactions with women, which soon eats away at your self-image.

    There was a time long ago, where I was a social outcast because of my weight and the way I dressed. Heartbreak after heartbreak seemed to litter my childhood like a child might litter your neighbourhood. In my later teenage years I have made vast improvements to my appearance and my confidence, kiss closing many times, but thats just it only kiss closing. If I counted my secual encounters on a hand it would be a very small hand indeed. My relationship status must be trying to keep in equilibrium with my sexlife because I've hardly had any relationships.

    Though this isn't just about girls, its about growing my sovial circle, aquiring new skills, forming a lasting relationship not just to have a girl but to experiemce a happiness that in my heart of hearts I know I deserve.

    Tired of commentating and watching on the sidelines as my friends and rivals participated in life, I decided I was ready to stop being a bystander and become a player, show the world and most ultimately me my potential. Perhaps in a somewhat cliche fashion, deciding I was ready to build a better me, I decided to create an identity. Someone who wouldnt coddle life until it gave them a reward, someone who would grasp life by the neck and strangle it until it gave him everything he desired.

    So here I am, I figure this will help my mentality have a shift in paradigm, by giving my self improvement a gimmick. I found this forum deciding it had a lot of who had come from where I have, and inspiringly changed their lives and their personality for the better.

    I am ready to begin fresh, and so I come with many questions, such as "Where do I start?"

    And since we can name that 'other' us which we adopt as a persona for PUA, in the fashion of the German folktale, do declare: That today in this vast forum, the source of my username....

    'Faust' is born.


    Ok ok maybe I went abit over the top and dramatic, but yeah Im ready to have some fun and nice to meet you all

    Regards, Faust

    Hey Faust,

    Welcome to the forums. This is where to start.

    I think you're better off not creating a second you, because you don't want to end up with two personalities where one is really insecure and one is awesome. Even those of us who try to put all of the alpha male qualities (the guy women fall for) into our own personality without making it a "second" personality have trouble with clashes between the way they were and the way they are becoming. I talk about that for a bit here. I think trying to split them up on purpose will only enlarge the effect.

    Besides, you want yourself to change, not to become someone else. You need confidence, not a different personality.

    Good luck on your PUA journey!

    Hey Virgil!

    Thanks for the sound advice, it makes sense. Though I was going for a novelistic dramatic effect because I enjoy writing more so than anything else.

    Bottom line though I really want to have fun with this and look forward to seeing how and what effects changes in my technique and confidence make to social situations.

    Nice to meet you my friend!

    Regards, Faust.

    Good on you Faust! Even when you have opportunities galore you can make mistakes and not capitalize on situations. I used to be terrible at reading girls signals and would focus on the negatives 'Ahh she probably doesn't like me' while looking at a photo of her leaning into me and me leaning away. Keep getting out there and meeting new people, keep talking to girls and be happy with yourself. Scratch anyone beneath the surface and they are not perfect - especially girls. Just remember girls love sex too so if you can kiss close a lot you can have sex a lot. I know all sorts of weird, ugly, poor, overweight guys who get tons of pussy. The common denominator is that they are completely themselves and are completely confident. You don't have stop being you - you have to be you 1000% and learn what not to do. Being over the top and dramatic is great - were here for a good time not a long time.

    Welcome!

    Virgil is right, beware of the second personality. I had an amazing girl, and the second personality faded over time, and she wasn't a fan to say the least. Good luck!
