Re: Unlucky and confused new guy looking for help
I recommend this a lot - its popular, but its quite good too.
The Game by Neil Strauss, or Style. Plenty of other material out there, but here's why I'm recommending this one:
1 - yes, its a pick-up artists guide, but you see both sides of the coin as in the end he has a girl
2 and more importantly - he has a huge transformation in confidence, style, manner, and social outlook. I don't want to say self-help, but you might find some good stuff in there to boost your confidence and also open up not just women, but also friends and groups making connections that will help you develop yourself and maybe help you find a solid girl.
Hope to hear about your successes,
As always gentlemen,
