    It's OK to be socially retarded. and before you SJWs show up to shit on my post, en francais, en retard is literally "late".
    The other day I realized that almost every girl i slept with or any friends I kept in my circle was from someone else's actions, I had been living a reactive life...
    So I resolved to be more proactive. Stole some chica from the bar, never knew her name, and never saw her again.
    Realized that I wasn't really giving myself enough credit and that if I stopped self-loathing that I'd be super happy. So I did.
    Happy MLK day boyz

    There is a big contradiction in this video and I want to offer some wisdom so that Casually Explained’s 1.9 mill subscribers don’t get stuck acting out this self defeating and absolutely misinformed cycle. Guys especially, listen up. He asks “what would a not weird person do?”. A non-weird person would act normal. Normal means exactly the same things as regular, ordinary, typical, average, standard and unexceptional. The opposite of normal is unique. This should be common knowledge to all native English speakers. Now the contradiction comes when he suggests that you “sit right and wait for the alcohol to give you a personality.”. If you were weird then you already had one. Let me ask you all, since when has getting drunk ever made you significantly better at anything? Sure you might be having more fun at the bar if you’re drunk, but it’s only because your perception and judgement are inhibited become more like a disability. You thought you danced like Michael Jackson that night, but your dancing really looked like an opossum as it gets squished beneath a tire. You thought you sang karaoke like Robert Plant but you really sounded like a nail was driven through your shoe on every line. You shouldn’t avoid having fun and doing your own thing no matter what it looks like to others, you may even have made their night with laughter. That’s always a win! But getting tipsy or drunk is only boosting your fun meter while reducing your ability to do anything else above the skill level of sitting, “walking” and breathing, and even those can be failed once you’ve taken enough time to “get a personality”. He is essentially suggesting you drink until you forget yourself and that absence should be replaced with someone who is loud and fake. Assuming you actually do like this girl at the bar or club, then you want her to show interest in you so you can ask her out. If she says yes, what happens when the time comes to go o that date and you aren’t the “personality” that she agreed to go out with? Get drunk again? What about the second date? Get drunk again so she will never know who you are or what you’re like? You surprisingly fall in love and want to be with her forever and you must drink to be the mask that you made. Congratulations, you’ve become a full fledged alcoholic who will die early of liver failure.
    The word “weird” in this video should be substituted with “creepy” since the examples he gave represent that well. Being weird makes you unique, being unique makes you exotic and offers a certain special magnetism to it because it’s generally refreshing amongst the sea of average, normal people. What’s important is achieving some self confidence and embracing what’s unique about you so that you can present it in a fun or sophisticated way. You don’t have to pretend to be someone else. It will just make you miserable and lonely even if you do get the girl. Don’t be creepy but absolutely be unique! Be weird and interesting! It’s what separates you from the herd and what will land you in a relationship that is actually worth being in. Cheers to the weirds!

    I would guess that women don't want to approach guys because they, like men, are scared to be rejected. Women are just people. They are not some foreign alien species.

  • WebX

    It *is* a shit double-standard though. Like of COURSE women are going to be approached too often and of COURSE some guys are going to take rejection a lot more seriously than they should, when all of the pressure is on them. I can't understand why a woman would want to reinforce this, as basically all the issues they face in the dating world stem from this particular pressure.
    I'd say over half the the girls I've dated initiated in some way and I almost always stayed friends or became friends with girls I turned down.
    But there's another secret here: I'd say as long as you are interacting with people with no intention on actively seeking out a date, then girls often *do* initiate, but it's usually in indirect signs since there is still pressure against them being blunt.
    But yeah, just a message to the girls. Guys pretty much never get compliments. Girls don't give them to us. Guys don't give them to us. And many guys end up creating fictional egos in order to cope with this total lack of feedback. Not surprisingly those egos are fragile, yes. We're in a constant state of "nobody would love me unless I'm useful". I don't know what the solution would be, but taking the pressure off would be a good first start.

    Hey, girls approach me all the time... it's usually to either tell me about their boyfriend or ask me what I think about how things are going in her relationship with her boyfriend, or to complain about her boyfriend, or to say she broke up with her boyfriend and wishes more guys where like me, or to say how glad she is to have me as a friend because I helped her through her breakup until she got a new boyfriend, or to tell me where she is on her menstrual cycle. Primarily the second, second-to-last, and last ones though; especially the last one. (no idea why they all keep telling me about it)
