Confidence is attractive, we all know this so well it's basically a meaningless statement. So the question we're all asking 24/7 is "how do I get it? Do I fake it until it comes naturally? Do I just be confident somehow? What even is confidence?"Read More
As a bit of backstory, I recently moved from the Sydney CBD to Rose Bay which is in the eastern suburbs and close to Bondi Beach. My new place is about 100 meters from this cafe, and working in this cafe, as you can probably guess, is a hot waitress. Not cheap-looking hot, but down to earth, deep conversation, wife material hot.Read More
I always ask the girls I know a tonne of questions about literally anything that happens to enter my mind. So here are ten questions answered by three girls I know. Some are helpful, some are funny, and some aren't really relevant at all. If anything, it does give some insight.Read More
The very short version of how we met: I met Anna in probably the most unusual way. I was on a family holiday through Europe when I ran into this red-headed Finnish girl. She was on an interrail with her friends, travelling through Europe. I was in Rome, July 2015, during one of the worst heatwaves, and with temperatures reaching 35ºC+ everybody was keeping indoors as much as possible.Read More
There's nothing I used to get sick of more than self-development blogs lecturing me on meditation. It wasn't that I didn't understand that it was good for you somehow. I did. There are so many websites talking about the benefits. And I understood the idea of being present. To be honest, I just didn't want to sit in a chair with my eyes shut. It sounded boring, and every time I thought about it I got fidgety.Read More
1. Hot girls don't get approached anywhere near as much as you might think, most guys go for what they think they can get, not what they actually want. A 7 will receive way more attention than a 9 or 10.
2. The Swedish curse is real and I will probably die before I ever sleep with a Swede. I have a Finnish girlfriend though, which is close enough.
There was a time, a little over two years ago, when I was on a sexless streak. I hadn't had sex since my high school girlfriend broke up with me and I had no idea what to do to get a girl. I kind of assumed she'd fall into my lap without me having to do anything, and it would be love at first sight. Plus, I was terrified of girls. The idea of approaching someone on the street, or going on a date, or getting naked with someone sent my heart rate racing.Read More
Have you ever watched one of those motivational videos on YouTube where some guy is training in an empty, grey boxing gym, hammering away on a punching bag until his hands bleed while some motivational voiceover yells "you have to fight through the pain to get the results"?Read More
There's a really entrenched idea in the self-development community about what self-development actually is. People tend to imagine it as a struggle and a journey, like pushing a boulder up a hill. The idea is this: at the top of the hill, there's an ideal version of you. He's confident, smart, fit, industrious and charismatic. He has lots of money, he's great with girls and he's changing the world. And you? You're at the bottom of the hill, looking up at this ideal guy who's not you. And to 'get to' him, to 'become' him, you have to climb that hill.Read More
