As you probably imagine, being a computer science student (out of ~300 students, ~270 were male) and a nerd doesn’t exactly make women line up to your dorm room, except when they need help with some math or coding assignment but even then at best all you can get is the “oh, thank you, you’re such a nice guy!” speech.
Because at the time even the idea of approaching a beautiful woman with the goal of “seducing” her would give me a panic attack, so I needed a different strategy – I wanted to make myself so attractive that those beautiful women would disregard my obvious shyness and social awkwardness.
As most guys, I first thought about fitness and building a godlike physique. The problem was that it would’ve taken years to start noticing real results and all the dieting would get in the way of my two favorite hobbies at the time (aside from video games, of course): drinking beer and eating junk food.
So instead I turned to fashion and style.
The problem was that there really were no good resources to teach me what I wanted:
The “how to get girls” crowd knew the ins and outs of what makes a man sexy but they were more or less clueless about fashion and clothes. The advice there essentially boiled down to “buy a nice buttoned shirt, black jeans and nice shoes”. (Hint: bullshit! And what the hell does “nice” mean?)
The men’s fashion sites on the other hand knew everything there is to know about clothes but they were mostly owned by married with children guys, who haven’t been in field or tried bringing a woman home from a bar or a club in years. In turn, most of their advice would go against the fundamentals of what it means to be a sexual, attractive man.
So my strategy was to mix & match the advice from both of these worlds and experiment in the real world, to see what happens. I had some help early on from a close friend studying fashion design to make sure I get some early wins and don’t completely screw myself over but still – I made countless mistakes down this path.
Eventually something clicked and my life was never the same since…
That shy, awkward nerd somehow started getting numbers from women (without even asking), asked out on dates, heck, even random booty calls.
Yes, you read it right – something as simple and mundane as changing the clothes I was wearing completely transformed my romantic life. Go figure…
