You know, a lot of guys I coach think I can’t relate to
They think I’m just a “natural” and I don’t understand
what it is to be awkward and shy around girls.
I can’t feel their pain and I don’t understand.
I know better than most guys what it’s like to be
painfully shy and awkward around girls.
I started telling my story in an email a couple of days
ago. I was painfully shy in high school. Even though I
was captain of the basketball team and joined a band, I
did not have ONE SINGLE DATE with a girl from my high
I was frustrated and didn’t know what the hell I was
going to do.
Not a great start, huh?
Well, as Paul Harvey used to say, “Here’s the rest of
I went to a college that was 75% women. Better odds
I had some sporadic luck in college and had a few
girlfriends. But it was like I only got laid due to
random luck. I couldn’t get it when I WANTED IT.
A few years later I was living in Queens New York and
went through a bad break up with my, then, girlfriend.
I was totally afraid I’d never get a woman like her
again. It was a low point for me.
So I decided I was going to do whatever it took to get
good with women.
I learned everything I could from every good book that
was available at the time.
Then I got in with a group that you could describe as a
rowdy gang of “natural” lady killers. I could go out
with these guys, study them, and sort of reverse
engineer their success.
I spent the next twelve months going out and meeting
women every single day.
To be honest with you, in the beginning, there was only
fear: the fear of rejection, the fear of embarrassment,
and the fear of criticism.
So to combat fear, I took a job handing out fliers on
the streets of NYC.
This compressed so many rejections into such a short
period of time, that my fear of strangers quickly
I learned that it wasn’t that hard to get women to stop
and talk. Even getting phone numbers wasn’t that hard.
After a few months of this, I learned how to get phone
numbers, dates, and sex on the first date.
I was flying high and loving life. All the hard work was
finally paying off.
During this time, I kept a diary chronicling my
development and the amazing things I was learning. I’d
post some of the entries online, and men from all over
the world would follow my adventures and apply these
same lessons to their own lives.
I’ve gotten emails from hundreds of men saying that my
journal entries helped them succeed more than any book,
DVD, CD, or seminar.
I’ve collected most of the best of them in my book, Diary of
a Pickup Artist.
Check it out. It’s a free download. Consider it my
gift to you.
I want it to show you what is possible FOR YOU.
