So just the a quick background about myself. I'm 22 still in school and I've just started to get over a bad break up. Before the relationship my skills weren't great but they were passable, I had slept with 18 girls (I was only attracted to about 4-5, even back then I struggled with women). Since we broke up though my inner game has just been totally destroyed and I just have not been able to talk to girls at all. I was (still am) really sick of it, so this past month I started reading everything I could get my hands on but I just feel like I'm going backwards. Is this normal?
This is a skill I really want to learn but its just been such a frustrating month. For instance I'm on the first week of the 30 day challenge in Neil Strauss's " Rules of the Game" and I've totally pussied out of the past few days. I'm not looking to become a guru or even a true PUA, I just want to be proficient enough so that I can meet the type of girls I'm actually attracted to.
