It's Pissing Me Off!! - How Advice is Being Given on This Forum
I was reluctant to make any posts or threads here for a while because I used to make at ton on the old Practical Pickup forum, and yet, had no idea what the hell I was talking about. Now, besides Mark, Jon(who rarely posts anymore but knows his stuff) and probably Baller08, I feel I am one of the most qualified people here to give advice. My lay count is in the mid- twenties within a short time, I have a solid social circle, and I'm happy and proud of myself at this point in my life. Not bragging, it's just the facts.
Here's my beef with the way advice is being given on this forum and I strongly suggest people go and read Mark's article on how to give advice here:
1. In a lot of threads where there are tons of posts, a lot of arguing, and a lack of solid advice, it's just the blind leading the blind. Don't offer advice if you don't know what you're talking about or lack experience. And if you insist on giving advice anyways, let the other people know you are not experienced by stating it in your post.
2. People aren't looking at the situation from the perspective of the person asking for advice. For example, stop attacking Mace just because he doesn't agree 100% with your theories and doesn't worship the ground Mark walks on. Everyone here is flawed and no one has it all figured out, including Mark. Instead, try to relate to people like Mace, see where he's coming from and go from there. JESUS, no wonder some of you guys can't connect with women, you can't even connect with each other.
3.Stop speaking for everyone in the forum. Follow the old saying, "Speak for YOURSELF". For example, when Tim tries to "rally the troops" by speaking for everybody in general, saying things like "we're not buying it" and all that bullshit. Like Baller08 said, some of us are at different stages then others. Lets be more humble, try to relate to each other, speak for ourselves, and offer the best advice we know how.
4. Some people aren't genuinely looking for advice. I'm seeing more and more cases of people looking to argue, yet those were the same people initially asking for advice. If you want to argue or debate something, make sure it is CLEAR in your thread that's what you want to do. That way people don't feel like it came out of left field and they can either debate with you, or ignore your post all together.
On a side note, there's been a lot of negativity lately here. I personally would love to hear about more SUCCESS stories from you guys when it comes to women. Who cares if some people may see it as bragging, tell people success stories to your heart's desire. People here who truly want you to succeed will be glad to hear them.
That is all.
