Nick: Casual dating is clearly on the rise. With apps like Tinder, many people are choosing to forgo committed relationships.
Although the stigma is lessening, men who choose to date around are seen as lacking in morals. They’re judged as being players, assholes, and heartless.
I grew up playing video games.
At 3 years old, I was leaping chasms on Atari’s Pitfall and crushing goombas as Super Mario on the Nintendo.
By 6, I was using DOS to kill Lemmings, shooting Cyberdemons in Doom, and getting STDs in Leisure Suit Larry.
I actually can’t believe some of the shit my parents let me play.
Being able to introduce yourself to new people is arguably the biggest determining factor in a man’s dating success. This one ability does so much for you.
If you say hi to one new person a month, you have one chance of making a connection. Say hi to five people and you’ve drastically weighed the odds in your favor.
Today, my friend Pete will show you how he’s used his charisma to date multiple women while being open to a long-term connection.
Pete is an advanced social skills coach who engages people effortlessly with natural charm. Spend 5 minutes with him and you’ll understand why.
He’s fully present in the moment with you, can’t seem to stop smiling, and has this warmth that radiates a calm confidence. You immediately feel his self-security and that he just wants everyone around him to have a good time.
I believe developing your self-security and self-esteem is one of the most important journeys in life.
This means: practicing self-compassion and gratitude, prioritizing your wants and needs, and presenting yourself authentically to the world.
And throughout that lofty pursuit, there’s usually room for improvement in how you express your self-security in interactions with other people. Small tweaks can completely change people’s perceptions of you.
