Best lesson of my life (so far).

I discovered something that, while so simple and short, was so seriously impacting on how I live my life and carry myself. I posted about this in the other thread, but I think I'll put it here so that people can discuss (if they want).

It's really easy to talk to women, and there's NO risk involved.

When I discovered this, my life seriously changed for the better. I don't get laid like a rockstar, nor do I anticipate on doing so, but I'm getting so much closer to getting dates with women I actually want, and not just getting lucky. Just these past two weeks, I got two phone numbers from some seriously good-looking women, and had conversations with at least one woman every day. This might not sound like a lot, but considering that before this, I was getting ZERO numbers A MONTH, I think I can say that I'm making huge improvement.

When I just stopped caring about the outcome, walked tall and confident and just started trying stuff, great things happened. It was pretty awesome. I can even post online and get responses. This basic, simple stuff works everywhere.

Plus, it helps me get faster on the bike too (seriously; my avg flat speed is at least 2 or 3 mph faster than usual, and I feel much more ready to hammer). I feel great!

Yay MrCrassic! Glad to hear things are rolling along well

You know, whenever someone asks me what I find attractive, it usually boils down to: how they carry themself. I'm attracted to someone with an air of confidence (not arrogance), someone who isnt' shy to start up or carry on a conversation, and who really looks at you when you're talking.

Sure, tall dark & handsome can gain some brownie points... but tall, dark, handsome, and shy does not (for me). But how they interact is huge.

Artifice,

With some women, I actually ask them precisely that question (amongst others, like how men usually approach them, what their worst experience was, etc.) just to learn a bit more about how it works. It's really amazing how common that response is!

Plus, I was really amazed at how much more women are willing to open up if you introduce yourself the right way. Usually, whenever I made the woman laugh a bit upon first introduction, I get a pretty lengthy conversation that ends with a phone number. I used to establish dates right then and there, but I like having a little bit of a wait before I do that.

I hear that men can get away with a lot more at a party (i.e. making a woman laugh a bit can lead to a very interesting night...), but I have yet to try this.

The laughing bit makes the barrier to entry a lot easier.
There's still a bit of work to be done to secure an interesting night...unless you're gangsta and know exactly how to look and breathe just right enough to stimulate a woman without words. (Apparently, there are people that can do this!)

You're doing things the hard way. Didn't you hear you can improve your average speed at least 4mph by switching to ceramic bearings in your BB?

Where do you meet such women? Bars don't seem like the place you meet 'quality' women.
