When I was "somewhat" immersed into the pua community, I always felt very bad (gut reaction) when catering my persona in order to pull some girl (routines and all that things), which never crystalized the way of the books anyway
So, gut knows best. I remember my fellow good intentioned community comrades suggesting me when we went out, and approaching some cute girls; try this routine with different tone of voice, more deeper and alpha, when meeting girls with groups of guys always look them in their eyes and address them in the group first, then go talk to the girls (fuglies first to disarm the obstacles) and remember to keep your shoulders width apart, be upbeat, feet to the side aligned with the shoulders, chest up, sly grin, chin up, sleepy eyes, rapport, add value, but also remember to lower the value of the target (by negging her) aahh
, and all that fucking ton of shit one have to remember (all external adjustments, but the same internal shitty vibe.)
Glad it never happened, because if in that time If I kept pushing and applying the "effort" to adjust my personality to get some, and this had been reinforced by actually have gotten sex from #hot girls then, like a confused child I would learn to achieve something by being a utter fake, and adjusting my behavior and actions depending on what *I think I needed* from people and doing all the disservice to my pshyche in the mean time by reciting that snake oil salesman act.
Thus never questioning my ego, and why in the first place I went to learn all that shit, and facing some harsh truths that are far more important than girls.
