The first few months of a connection are exhilarating. Everything’s fresh and hormones are surging.
It’s a wild emotional ride with a sort of beautiful chaos and uncertainty.
But lately I’ve spoken to a lot of men who feel their new relationships are a little too chaotic.
Most of the time, their partners are incredible. They’re easy-going, caring, and present. They have wonderful dates together and great sex.
Today’s article is by Sarah Jones. She helps introverted men bring out their best to attract women.
Sarah is also a master at recognizing the best opportunities to approach someone. She introduced herself to me years ago and I knew she’d be an established name in no time. I’ve since watched her build deep connections with countless people I respect.
We idolize geniuses. Many even consider academic success and intellectual prowess as the hallmark of personal achievement.
So people bust their ass to get into top schools. They land high-end jobs. They self-educate on the internet.
Nothing is inherently wrong with that. I love learning everything I can about a new subject and being well-read.
I see genuine friendship as sacred. When your parents and older relatives are all gone, a great friend can be by your side for the rest of your life. They become part of your new family.
And it’s why I’m so frustrated by all the people I see being fake friends. It’s not always intentional but it has the same repercussions in the end.
I had way too much energy as a kid. I was easily distracted and could never sit still. My dad has a report card from my kindergarten teacher that says:
“Wonderful boy. But he never naps and wakes up all the other students to play.”
I found it damn near impossible to focus on anything. By the time I hit middle school, my grades suffered because I couldn’t pay attention long enough to get my work done.
