It sucks to be so nervous around a woman that you babble incoherently, and it is even worse to act like a stud and have her slap you in front of your buddies. Get out, date, deal with the inevitable rejections, have fun, and learn about the machinery in your own head that leads to trouble and failure with women.
When it comes to dating, most men are run by myths, misconceptions, and denial of their power as men.
FACT: Alcohol and drugs can and do exacerbate violence, but they are NEVER the cause of violence.
Additionally, many people who batter do not drink heavily and many alcoholics do not beat their partners.
(The answer is an emphatic no.) The bottom line is that women want to be SEDUCED and ROMANCED.
No, these women are hot and heavy because these men are exciting, romantic, fun, and even a bit dangerous.
Repeat after me, "Dating is simply a numbers game." You flirt with x number of women and that will result in x number of conversations which will lead to x number of coffee dates which will lead to sleeping with x number. To date means flirting with women and initiating conversations with women.
Figure out the number ahead of time and then create a plan to go out and meet and talk to women.
These are complied from "How to Succeed With Women" - the best-selling book I co-wrote, published by Simon Shuster in 1998.
So wake up, smell the coffee, pay attention, and you may just learn something.
