Stop trying to become what you already are. By which I mean, quit 'going out'. I am okay.

Cool to hear that you enjoyed :)

My goal for this month is: kiss a new girl (meaning.. a girl I do not know yet).

I also must go out 4 times!

If I do not, I will have to meditate for one whole day and I have to finish reading Michel Houellebecq's book 'Whatever', which I regard to be the worse shit anyone ever came up with.....

Thought is doubt. A big part of pick up is thinking about it, which causes doubt. Why would you think about something if you have no doubt? This works both ways. To not attach to thinking is to have no doubts, it is to trust things as they are and will be.

I will get succes at going out, I know it now. It will take a while longer but I will, I simply know it now. It has already happened in my other obsession: volleyball. The way I see it right now, the only thing that can stop me from getting the level of succes I desire at this point, is me finding the girl of my dreams.

Yeah, me dying too :P BTW isn't Fibonacci the guy that figured out the mathematical relationship between numbers of rabbits in their reproductive cycles? I was just reading about that when I was preparing for an assessment test the other day.

Okay I accomplished my first goal. Went out yesterday and made out with a girl about the whole night. There was a lot of sarcasm, but a very fun interaction. Some ego boosting quotes from our conversation were:

me "can I sleep over at your house?"

her "are you always this shy?"

and

me "It'll take me about a couple of hours to break down your sarcasm"

her "well you're pretty confident"

and

her "do you have a come back to everything??"

etc, etc. But really it was nothing special. Seemed like I was not the only one at the party making out. But was good to just be a natural part of the party dynamic and just do what one does at party's. The girl was pretty convinced I wouldn't message her anymore after and she said she wouldn't either, but she did and I think I will actually meet up with her again.

Went out with the girl. Was alright, made out, asked if I could come to her place: no go. She's 19, that's quite young. Not that attracted.

Talked to a girl in the toilet line infront of me, she was 6'4, but attractive. Talked to girl at train station. Mundane conversations.

Girls: PLayed my favorite sport with a new girl (just me and her)... very strong feelings for her now. So I guess I have to little girls in my life... good old one-itis one might say :P Also went to a party, where all girls liked me.. or well two (and a 40 year old woman). One I didn't like and the other one had boyfriend, yet was really hot; could not stop looking at her. Also went out with my super hot ex-colleugue: also boyfriend.

Now: I have three more weeks left until I start my corporate career in a big company, after which going out will be reduced to maybe once a week :( I will go out lots these last weeks.

Theory: Pick up is an indulgence, not something you MUST do, like you MUST do your homework or the dishes. It also, is NOT the morally correct thing to do for your life. Pick up is not a moral activity, although you could try to do it REALLY morally, like they do here at RSD, but even then the activity itself is not moral, although it could teach you moral lessons I guess (you CAN argue about this, but I do not think you should). But fuck it.. it's something you indulge in. But NOT taking action is ALSO something you indulge in. So one indulgence is keeping you from indulging in the other. So I geuss it takes either discipline, force, or the one I like best: mindfulness, to help you indulge in pick up. The ultimate thing of course is where it no longer is an indulgence, where you don't even see the difference between your regular life and pick up... this however is probably impossible, for most of all of us :P So all the former might be true, but actually pick up is just talking. And really, the whole concept of pick up is not. Pick up is good when there is no pick up. Girls like guys that don't like nor dislike them. Or guys that don't mind that they like them. Or guys that don't even notice them. Or guys that want to fuck their brains out and continuously tell them this. Or guys that notice an old lady in the same way that they notice them.  Or perhaps.... girls... just like guys. Yes, I like that one best. If you're a guy, you possess the qualities, to be liked, for this is the nature of things.

Please do not think about any of this.
