Congrats man!

1 in a million accomplishment.

You just increased your options many thousands (millions?) Fold.

You're not just limited to girls you know or anything like that. Now every girl you see is game.

Like total abundance in just under 3 months.

Really proud man. This is a rarified achievement even on GLL. And best of all there was no luck involved. You started and through effort and perseverance, finished.

It's not just the girls, it's the view of yourself, habits, work ethic, courage, diligence, tenacity, all of that are things you've gained, and it was all earned. Nothing was given to you.



This is the kind of accomplishment you will remember forever and nobody can take it away from you. No matter where you go, no matter what you do, you'll have this undisputable fact of what kinds of things you're able to accomplish.

Excited for what's next. Can't wait to see your approach logs!
Current Goals
1a. Get a place under 8min walk to multiple cafes/bars and make $80 post-tax surplus each week.
1b. Secure stable $100/week extra income without going over 45hrs of work each week.

Nah dude, that was spectacular. Fucking sucks to lose the first draft, but I bet it couldn't match what you just wrote.

Toast man, you've been a road buddy and an inspiration. Your hustle the last couple weeks has been legendary. Scotty's supposed 6 hour days come to mind, and you blew it away. I haven't been there for you lately. Don't lie, I haven't. Now I regret missing out on a lot of your progress and your growth.

Persistence is key. Never giving up in spite of all the obstacles in front is a huge mental hurdle to overcome. My brain has muscles now from how strong it has become.
Everything you said was on key, and this stands out. You've been the poster boy for persistence. You've been going at it almost every day. Day 46 in like 60 days. What a man. Your baseline has been stable almost the whole time. You've pretty much figured out the secret to reaching any goal you want. I doubt many things will be harder than this, but even if they are, the same principles will apply.

You're going to carry this achievement to everything you do, especially after doing this during COVID as a once in a lifetime bonus on top of it all.

Got more to say but this is an early congratulations. A huge one.

I'm back from my buddies wedding/mini vacation.

Had a great time, but unfortunately the wedding wasn't really the place to get laid. Small turn out in a country town in Wisconsin.

I did gain some experience points in Madison Wisconsin when I was there with my friends. We were catching up with my friends friend, and she brought along a cutie. We seemed to get a long pretty well the whole time. We all went out drinking and she was definitely into me. My friends said she was always trying to talk to me, and I definitely felt waaaaay more comfortable talking to this girl. As the night went on it was like me and her together, and my other friends hanging out. My friends ran away from us to give us some space, and when we were walking back to the hotel I took the opportunity to kiss her and it went well. It was pretty spurr of the moment. We were just walking together and I looked her in the eyes and she was looking back at me and I went in for it. Felt really natural. Logistically it wasn't really set up for me to bring her back to the hotel since I was sharing a room with my buddies. So I said we should catch a uber to her place. She denied me there, and said that she wasn't into one night stands, and wanted to get to know me better and since I was from Cali and she was here it wouldn't work out. We then met up with my friends again and that was basically the end of the night. The next day her friend said that she thought I was really charming and a really nice guy but that my boldness with my intentions was a little bit too much for her.

Sucks I didn't get laid but I still had a really great time, and honestly I feel like I accomplished something by making out with her. I don't think I would have been as comfortable a couple of months ago. I don't think that she is the kind of girl who just sleeps around, so being able to get her to like me enough to kiss is a good morale boost and shows how much I've grown.

Now to take it to the next step and start cold approaching.

Definitely gotta move out from home though. Not having a convenient place to go back too will be a major cock block. Especially if my house is in a different town 30 min away.

~ Big ol Rant ~

Now that I'm back home and not on vacation mode, I'm kind of reflecting on what life is for me now and what I need to do in the future. All of my focus was on AA and now that is done I need to think about what is next.

Getting a taste of what its like to have fun with a cute girl in a nice town really made me realize how stuck I feel in my current situation. Life at home is not the life I want for myself.

Logistically I feel like its almost impossible for me to get laid. Not only cuz I'm at home, but because there is no bars, or even a night life in my town, and San Francisco is a 30 min drive from my house. My friends are all quite boring as well. Only one of my friends wants to go out and have any fun.

At the wedding I reconnected with a friend I knew from elementary school, and it made me realize how little I have been talking to past friends. I feel confident enough to hit up old friends and maybe go out to grab a drink or just chill. So I think I might start reaching out to past friends to reconnect.

I think what would be best for me is to move into the city, and start fresh there, get on the tinder scene and really work on my dating life, along with cold approaching. Doing this will probably help me add that excitement and fun that i feel like I'm missing in my life. Getting laid would obviously be fun, just just going on dates and meeting new people would be exciting for me as well.

The career will also come along as well. Passed the Sherriff Deputy test so that is moving along. But I'm still unsure if I want to live in California. Seeing how life is outside of Cali made me realize how fucked it really is here. Nothing is affordable, rent is extremely expensive, and crime is extremely high. Ill most likely stick with the SF Sherriff for a bit and see how it goes, since its great money. But if I can take that money else where with me and the experience I've gained. That will definitely be an option I would like to do.

So far with a little bit of a brain storm I would consider New Mexico, Arizona, Texas. If anybody has any input on those states lemme know. It seems like a lot of people here are having a great time in Texas and I've really only heard great things for years about Texas. All of the other cities that I thought about like San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Sant Cruz, Montara, Are expensive as fuck.

I'm also still unsure if I should continue school and go for a bachelors. This may or may not be of use to me. I don't really want to just go into debt for a piece of paper I wouldn't use. Getting a bachelors would allow me to possible move to japan, which was a life goal in my early 20s. So that's kind of one of the reasons I still consider it.

I have a lot to think about with what I want and need to do. For now I think priority number 1 would be moving out from home. Maybe once I'm on my own ill have a little more clarity of what I need to do and how to do it.

I feel a lot of this post.

I wonder if the big question stuff will sort itself out or if its something you need to keep activr tabs on mentally.

But yeah I feel the same way. Moving out is a bottle neck to everything else.

Did you know that it's my dream to have a girl say this about me? That's a badge of honor my guy. Sorry it didn't work out, but that's a testament to the program and your achievement if I've ever seen one. Even if it doesn't feel like it for various reasons.

Congrats on the sheriff's test by the way! For the other stuff, I think you should definitely get bachelor's under your belt if you can, while not losing sight of other opportunities, career or love life-wise. SF is definitely not a good place for you for the intermediate future in my opinion. Needlessly expensive, needlessly fucked. Though the high crime might be a boon for your line of work ;) I hear very good things about Texas and San Diego.

Overall though, the person who writes a post like you just did is well on his way to something good. You're making big decisions with your life and doing something about every aspect of it. You can't really go wrong.

I'd say look into the college thing before you move out. The sheriff's thing is a good thing to have in the meantime while you decide, really happy for you that it's moving along

This is a belief we all have at the beginning and its baseless most of the times. Plus its perfectly normal for a girl to have slept with 1-2 guys all her life and that, after 3+ months of waiting. But then, a guy she likes with the right amount of social freedom and killer instict comes along and boom - the next day she's telling her friends it just happened.

Kudos for going for the kiss. I generally consider kissing useless unless you're already in your place. But thats my preference because I find kissing boring.

100% agree. Sherriff Department is a great job, and great money, but sf is definitely fucked. I hope I can get the job and juggle finishing a bachelors.

@Master Thanks! I hope you can keep on improving yourself as well

@Crisis_Overcomer She seemed like she was down in the beginning, and was openly talking about dating and being on tinder, so I believe she was sexually available. Also we were with her best friend and my 2 friends who like ran ahead to give us space. Maybe it was a logistical thing, like going back to her place is too much for her, but if I had my own hotel room she might have been more down? This is all speculation tho. I'm happy I kissed her cuz this is all really just experience in the long run.
