This Thanksgiving is my one year anniversary of continuously studying and practicing pick up. I went out Thanksgiving night last year and I had an attractive girl all over me. I managed to fuck it up and it pissed me off. I was upset and disappointed with myself. I decided I needed to swallow my pride, admit that I had issues with dealing with women and seek help.
I knew about the seduction community long before then though. I am not like 90% of the pick up artists I meet who learned about it from reading The Game. I dabbled in it many times in my life but I never really dove into it full boar. Many times in my life my tight network of friends allowed me to get by without needing to face my problems. Moving to Milwaukee and not knowing anyone was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Back in 1998, I read an article about Ross Jeffries in an issue of Playboy. I found some of his NLP techniques to be a bit abstract but the fact that there were people to go to for guidance fascinated me.
In 2001, I found SoSuave.com and then FastSeduction.com. I got David DeAngelo’s Double Your Dating ebook. I bought How to Succeed with Women at a local Borders. I even purchased the domain eseduce.com.
I have successfully changed my life in many ways this past year. I have become more successful with women. I met new pick up artists and sarged with them, most notably Vedran. I finally did something with this domain that I owned for the past five years. I’ve taken control over my life rather than just setting in the back seat.
But to be honest I have a long way to go yet.
