Over the last month I have been going through RP 101 with the ending of a 5 year LTR, learned some very hard but needed lessons.(check my history,cheating, own a house together.)
I can honestly say that outside of a few seconds of grief in private the last 3 weeks have been some of the best non-vacation weeks of my life. I have focused on enjoying my life, improving and living life on my terms, I have really made an effort to be open to people all around me and re-connect with some old friends. This has opened me up to more attractive people than I ever thought possible. I have talked to 100's of people(NOT JUST WOMEN) in this time, some are potential clients, others are potential plates. I have picked up 13(used 3) numbers from women I consider 7+ as I consider myself at least that and hold myself to that standard, while also having multiple women say something like "You're really cute, I want to give you my number." And also getting looks from Married/un-available women(Still waffling on how i feel about taking them to the next step)
I was a man in a relationship with blinders on who would have never done anything to "harm" my LTR but of course because of that I was not living up to my social or business potential as meeting people is important for my new job.
Im already building a roster of females who are interested in my attention, and some odd(but positive) interactions that I don't even think I would have be open to 3 weeks ago.
I was lucky to start my red pill journey while the ship was sinking and not after, as i've hit the ground running, I have been getting crazy amount of attention from women while all of my friends and family all seem me in a positive light and are willing to introduce me to any single women they know.
Thank you guys for helping me handle all of this the masculine way, keep my composure and come out ahead of this situation. I will never go back to the old me, In the distant future I may take on another LTR but i will never go back to no living life exactly how I want.
Also guys there is a light at the end of the tunnel, trust your gut, if its not right, don't settle for good enough, your life can be whatever you want it to be, you get to choose the relationships and let go of the negative ones.
P.s. First date with hot 22 y/o Nurse tomorrow evening, back to normal RP for me but i think this communitys life experiences and choices are gold and can also be a huge part of me learning to be a betterman.
