DATING THROUGH MY EYES

“YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GREAT TO START; BUT YOU HAVE TO EVENTUALLY START SOMEWHERE TO BE GREAT”

Welcome back to another podcast episode of PAIN4GAIN. Hosted by yours truly DEMARCO CASTILO. This is episode is sponsored by ME ;)) I am a one stop shop for all your needs and wants..lol!!

In this episode, I will talk about my journey into the dating world. I mentioned in the last podcast (click here if you haven’t heard it yet. http://demarcocastillo.com/?p=56 ) that I will discuss my experience as a bachalor with low vision. I have noticed that my story on how I got into the PICK UP community has intrigued a lot of people so; why not talk about it in a larger platform.

Growing up I was very insecure about myself because of my low vision. I always felt different and as a outcast at times because of low vision. Aside from that, I assumed that women didn’t want to date me because of the lack of transportation that I had. Some women did prove my theory right and, others definitely have proven me wrong. I guess, we attract what we constantly think about the most and; I attracted the women into my life that didn’t want anything to do with me because of the lack of transpiration.

Being insecure, made me very angry about my situation and unfortunately, I took it out on all the people who loved me and wanted to help me. For a very long time, I had this victim mentality that I was not the problem, but rather the situation I was in. therefore, I had a perfectly good reason to be mad and act like a complete jerk to everyone around me. It ruined a lot of great relationships I had with friends and family. Actually, till this day I am trying to repair it.

Aside from feeling insecure and angry, I eventually become sad and depressed. It got to a point that I felt sorry for myself and everyone else should feel sorry for me too. I was so depressed, because I had no social life, barely any social skills and didn’t know what else to do. I signed up to to see a therapist for a while and that didn’t help much. I was considering ant-depressent, but I eventually said no to them. I said no to them, because I was scared what they might do to me. Even worse, rely on them just to have a functional day, So I just delt with it and “hoped” things got better. (By the way, HOPE is not a strategy. So don;t rely on that when it comes to your love life, finances, and career.)

The last stage of my emotional journey that almost sent me to my grave, was that I felt hopeless. I felt like my situation hd no light at the end of the tunnel. My mother and other family members did all they could to help me; but the truth was, I wanted to feel sorry for myself and to be left alone e in this horrible state of ming that I was in. I honestly did not know what else to do or who to turn too for for help…

Eventually, I found this great book and it turned my life completely around in ways that I never though my life could be any different. After reading this book, I replaced those four horrible feeling with four news ones…

I went from being…

Insecure

Angry

Sad

Hopeless

TO

Hopefull

Happy and edger

Grateful and apprecitive

Confident

Re: DATING THROUGH MY EYES



@Jayden,

By now means am I popular, I am just trying to share my story and I hope it helps people along the way!

The book that I read is call the THE GAME BY NEIL STRUASS. True story about a nerdy guy who was trained by real pick up artist. He learned that women are not as visual as us men. As long as we are confident and secure,(with other factors of course) we will have a better chance at meeting women!!

The book inspired me so much that I started to go out and meet women. I got so good, that I eventually started showing other men how to do it.

Let me now if you like me to send you the book, i can send it as an audiobook format or ebook. send me your email

Thanks

DeMarco

DeMarco;

I didn't realize you were so popular. I thought
you were just an ordinary poster.
BTW, I went to your podcasts, but the dating
one was not available. Can you check on that
one please?

Have a nice day.
