How to Get Girls or Guys or Other People You Want Potential Relationships With

I’m not one to give advice freely. However, I’m in the middle of a conversation with an ex who wishes to find a girl for a one-night stand or a potential relationship. That’s fine, no judgments on people’s casual sex lives. However, he doesn’t seem to want to do anything about it and just complains. I know he’s a shy guy who’s not terribly confident in himself, but he shoots down any advice I give him and seems to be stuck in a dream world. And you know what? It’s annoying. It’s really damn annoying. So if you relate to the plight of this man and wish to know how to pick up people, I’m going to write something for you.

Here’s my advice: GO FUCKING DO SOMETHING. If you just complain about how people won’t come to you, go to them. If you’re afraid that someone will say “no” to your advances, learn that rejection is a part of life and realize that if you do nothing, you get nothing. If someone does say “no” to your advances, remember that there are other people to talk to and try again. Just because one person rejected you doesn’t mean everyone else will. If you’re think that any potential relationship won’t be as good as a previous one you had, learn that everyone brings new experiences. Also, stop comparing people to exes, it means you’re stuck in the past. You wanna go forward, right? You wanna find someone, you’ve got to look to the future. But you can’t make a future if you do nothing in the present. Sure, you could just wait for someone to come to you, but if you really want something, you need to go for it yourself. Plus, if everyone else is waiting for someone to step forward, nothing will happen. If you want something but do nothing about it, especially if you have the power to do something about it, STOP COMPLAINING. If you find it easier to complain than to go out and do something you know in your heart you can do, you don’t deserve a relationship yet.
