To begin, I want to say that Iím an anomaly. At once Iím completely new to the whole thing, and yet Iíve discovered the whole PUA scene back in 2006 (I feel old now! HA!) . I had a lot of issues with anxiety (not social anxiety though) throughout the years and I constantly got too preoccupied with school and finding a job to really date. So I could never fully apply what I learned outside of some social RPGs on the internet (the girls liked it, but I couldnít date them), and I havenít done much in years. I did a lot of mistakes, like going to bars and clubs, places where I really donít like to be in, and it never felt natural to me.
I got a job, not the one I want, but it pays enough for me to stash away a good amount, and Iím back in school at the same time (self-study) to try to further my chances of finally getting the job I want. This leaves me with less time to think about girlsÖ but Iím 31 years old, I really want to get this handled. Iíve also been recently diagnosed with Aspergerís syndromes, and that actually answered most questions I had as to why I felt the way I did and just why certain interactions went awry, both online and offline. This is possibly the biggest revelation I ever had, and itís going to be a challenge I need to work with.
So here I am, posting for the first time. I still have some of the old material DVDs and computers, but for all practical purposes, Iím starting anew. Letís see what I can learn from the experts here.
