I peacocked the majority of highschool without knowing it. - @Fawk_Face
Haha, that's along the line of what i meant by "or so I thought". According to Athol Kay's writings, my deliberately dressing down, like a bit of a slob, was a form of peacocking. I rebelled so hard against the idea, I ended up doing it!
BTW, nice jacket. Did you introduce yourself as "Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate"?
I agree, 100%.
I thought it was cool at the time cause it was when I first discovered Jimi Hendrix.
It's funny how what you thought was "soo cool" in one moment of time can have you end up thinking "Wtf" and it physically hurts to think about.
I learned about TRP reddit and "The Manosphere" through AMS.
Even when I was "blue pilled" I still thought PUAs came across as gay.
The only PUAs id ever suggest following is TNL. (The natural lifestyles)
I peacocked the majority of highschool without knowing it.
If anything I came across as retarded. But I had confidence even if it was blind. I wore the most ridiculous shit.
I showed pictures before, I had ripped jeans and jackets. I also dressed simular to this.... (picture attached) i still have that jacket lol.
Some chicks were diggin it.
The only reason i didn't get bullied in school is because I lifted regularly and made friends with all the guys who carried knives.
@Fawk_Face Roosh was a big help for me back when I was an oblivious AFC, but I only picked and chose what I knew would be helpful.
What helped me: learning about IOIs (I had missed so many opportunities), the concept of one-itis, and escalation.
What I skipped and refused to bother with (or so I thought): peacocking, negging (to an extent), and any NLP weirdness.
I wasn't going to wear a giant fuzzy hat to stick out, you know?
