I've felt much better these passed few days and spent time with others recently, fairly superficial though, so I'm still wear I began in that sense. I've put it off and put it off, but I need to start learning how to attract women. There are innumerable sites and men who proclaim "the answer" to how to pick up women, but these methods have more to do with their flawed understanding of how it works and making money from needy men.
This has been my biggest hurdle: I don't even know where to begin. The only consistent advice I've found is to act confident, but the more successful men's behavior that I've seen has been more arrogant and domineering, and usually childish and attention seeking. Again, I can't see what women find appealing in men. Perhaps I'll try to be "interesting" and seek attention myself. I've thought about it before, but I'm going to try telling stories; I've told stories before but I need to find new ones as my life isn't exciting so I'll have to find stories. I'm against lying so I still need to work out how I'm going to do this.
