I'm Funtimes. I am new to the PUA scene having just stumbled into in reading this article ( The Point Magazine ) that introduced me to the concept.
I am 24, fairly fit (edge of 'athletic' looking), and white. Fate smiled on me, I know.
My score is 2. An 8 and a 5.
I am also a social retard. My social development was stunted, severely, by an eight and half year relationship with my Ex-GF. From 16-24 I was with one girl and never so much as thought of other women as people I could be anything more than friends with. Watching porn was like watching a cartoon; characters that literally were not real. No idea how to flirt. No idea how to know if a girl was into me.
I won't go into the details of our breakup, but in short: I left her. There was no big fight or event. It was a gradual 'growing apart' thing combined with me feeling that I had missed out on a crucial part of my development (fooling around with multiple girls).
I have considered myself quite unattractive for most my life. This last year, however, I got into the gym (big time), got a better hair cut, got contact lenses, and got on anti-depressant medications. Self image shooting through the fucking roof. Now if only I knew how to project this confidence onto my targets.
While I don't understand how to approach, talk to, or close with with women I have other assets going for me. I am quite intelligent. I have a very lucrative career. I am reasonably physically attractive. I am willing to change (both physically and mentally). I ride a motorcycle (09' Kawasaki Ninja 250r). I am about to relocate to the University of Texas Campus area which will give me as many opportunities as one could ask for.
Most to my advantage, however, is that I am motivated by my desires and dreams more than my fears. I can shove those into the corner and stomp them to death.
I have been sarging for weeks before even knowing what a PUA was. My instinct was that this was a 'pain wall' I was just going to have to break myself against until I found a crack. I suppose if I kept at it long enough I would have, but since discovering the science of PUA I now know that there is a better way. A guided/focused way.
So that is me. I hope it is clear why I am entering this community. The PUA lifestyle may be looked down upon in many circles, but it is precisely the lifestyle I changed my life to achieve (without even knowing it existed).
If anyone wants a Wing in Austin, TX contact me. Don't expect me to be of much help yet, but I promise that I will learn quickly.
