I'm Jeff, 32, from Minnesota. I got into the game(not the book, read it a bit) about a year and a half ago after dating my first girlfriend in 6 years. I spent the next month being superultra AFC trying to win her back. she was pretty hot too. I spent most of my 20s being the "gross creepy guy" who rarely if ever could attract a women. I'm talking long nappy hair, borderline obese, and badly crooked teeth. I had a 5 year dry spell. not even kissing a women. nearly 4 years ago I started working out, cut my hair, now I lost 80-90lb, fixed my teeth to straight whites last year, and started dressing a lot better. I used to dress like a metal head, basically I was wearing chick repellant. I also started wearing cologne(Curve) in the last year.
Since my break up I started going out to places I used to never go before, real night clubs, and fun bars. Whereas before it was sausage-fest metal shows(huge mistake, very manly scene... gay) and I got over my social anxiety.
What's changed? I have got really good, like I am so suprised myself, 10 years ago I would NEVER EVER have pictures me able to go out, and attract tons of women, and bring hotties home with the greatest of ease.
It was strange at first, but now, I even get opened by attractive women. I have at least one SNL a month. I have tricks that have women open ME up! I love it. It's so life altering, and have made some awesome friends(wingmen) along the way. I am now, only a year and a half into it, highly respected by my peers in the pua community where I live. They have watched me pull more makeouts than many others, quickly attract women and get makeouts within seconds, not minutes or hours. Take women home, or go home with women in less than a hour. It's awesome, so for all those who don't believe themselves, you can do it too.
I came from a horrible youth being picked on, and tormented in school, nasty looks from women, and was a total introvert up until the last couple years. Most of you probably grew up with less bullsh1t of a childhood than I did. Not so much cause of family, but just my peers in school. Loosing my virginity after high school(luckily, she was a HB9-10, a virgin, and future stripper after that, I still do, and always will hope she is doing well, we never ended on a bad note).
However if you want to know anything about my game, I use NATURAL game only, I know I know, with my background, I shouldn't be a natural. It doesn't make sense, but instead of reading material, I chose to go hands on, and I highly recommend it to all of you. I think what Mystery, David Diagalo(sp?) Neil, Ross Jefferies, etc did and are doing is great to help others learn, but some things you have to learn on your own and what fits your personality. I don't believen canned material, or silly opinion openers. With night game I am like 95% DIRECT, day game, I am 50/50 INDIRECT. Don't be afraid to show a women you are attracted. Another thing is, don't over think it too much, much like life long naturals who don't study or even know anything about this community, I don't think about crap like "frame control, using negs, when to do this, and when to do that, etc" I think these things need to stop to ensure your success. I will admit, I criticize a lot of current popular pick-up material, but like I said, I do natural game, so I think the less you think about it, the better.
To all newbies, I know you've heard it before, and I will say it again, All it takes is confidence, being a bit ballsy, and to steal a word from one of my favs in the community(Rob Judge) be SHAMELESS! If you're out doing night game, and you're getting kino and IOIs from a girl, just farkin kiss her, grab her hand, and lead her way. She obviously wants to.
On a final note, if anyone is near Minneapolis, Mankato, or Marshall Minnesota, hit me up!
