Lol, no. I am a deep reader and usually pick up on alot of things between the lines in book or stories, whatever. So like... every stupid pick-up line they had in that book (which WAS a lot!) i just threw away. Like i said before, it basically taught me what kind of guys girls are more willing to associate with (in a social scene or in private). I've never been one to be chill about things, I'm kind of ... pro-active (in definition). When others sit, i stand. When others are quiet or just go with the flow, i've always been - even when it hurt me later - the idoit to stand up and state my views or whatnot. If people take up my rant and follow, good; if they don't, or scorn me for doing so: so be it. So... the whole idea of coming across as relaxed and confident, was new to me. And it has helped alot, especially at the party scene.Originally Posted by Land Pirate;2580117;
...I could go on with the concepts that i learned from that book, but it would take to long...but one that i have NEVER and will never use is the whole routines. Cause girls that fall for that, aren't my type. And even if they were, i'd still have trouble figuring out how to make this friendship turn into something more (if that's what i wanted), when it was founded on bull**** from the start.
What i learned from the book (Style, not Mystery): I got a lot going for me, so i really have nothing to worry about. And if i am at a party... instead of having a goal to get with a women or get a number or soemthing, just aim at having fun. You are at a party after all... that's what i got from it.
Maybe I read between the lines... maybe i'm just crazy and a really bad reader or something...lol. but yeah. The book was helpful to me.
The show, is not. It's dumb (just like everything Mystery says and/or is about. Honestly). Style had a really good relationship with Mystery, so the book protrays him as ... a little more honorable and wiser than he really is. That's why i thought for a second to go to a workshop of his (before seeing his even stupider prices for attending), and even started to watch the show... but yeah. A lot of people have a similar take to the book as you do; after all, it is filled to the top with openers,negs,uhh... and i don't know or care about the rest of them phases... There are a ton of guys, im sure, that read that book and used it for the face value (memorizing the lines and such).
My brother and i both agree that there were some helpful guiding lines not ever specifically stated in the book, but hinted at. I liked it cause it gave me some hope, and kind of lit up a path for me to follow or learn from.
