Date Like a Movie Star Without Looking Like Brad Pitt
Bald, middle-aged men dating super hot model-type women. You see it everyday.
Whenever I used to encounter this, I always thought that the man had to have a lot of money, or power, or was really famous in some special circle that I had never heard of.
One day, I felt really depressed about my life. I had been dumped by my girlfriend just a few days ago, and to be frank, life sucked. Big time.
Emotionally, I had hit rock bottom. Ground zero. Whatever you call it nowadays.
I felt like I had nothing to lose, so one day when I saw a really “normal” looking guy, with a smoking hot babe by his side, I decided to go ask her something:
“What are you doing with this regular guy, when you could get any guy on the planet?”
I just walked straight towards them and asked.
Out of the blue, they just started to laugh like they had never laughed before. I just stood there, kind of chocked. I would have thought that they would have taken it in a kind of negative way and gotten mad at me, but no. They just stood there and laughed.
As I guess you realize, I felt really dumb.
In my misery, I turned around and started to walk away.
But I didn’t go far before a hand grabbed my shoulder and turned me around again.
“Hi, I’m Peter!” the man from before said.
I couldn’t believe it. I had just insulted him, and now he wanted to introduce himself?
I stood there, feeling really strange, and greeted him back.
“Hi… I’m Alex”.
Peter just stood there, looking really regular, smiling at me. I didn’t know what to do. I felt like walking away again, but something held me back.
“Nice to meet you, Alex. Let’s go grab a beer; I have some things to teach you.”
What?! I was so confused at this point. The hot babe from before also walked up to us, and introduced herself. Her name was Angelica, and it turned out that she was even beautifuler than I had thought.
As I didn’t know what to do, I accepted his offer. And boy, am I glad I did!
What Peter had to teach me
As I look back on my life, I think that this day was the most important day in my life.
Peter, Angelica and I walked to a nearby bar.
I still didn’t get what was going on. At this point, I actually remember thinking I was part of a reality show or something.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that Peter wasn’t as “ordinary” as I had first thought.
He talked differently, and he moved differently. There was just this “something” over him. I couldn’t quite pick it out, but I knew it was there.
Peter ordered a couple of beers, and we started to talk. It felt like he knew all about me, like he had me all figured out, just by looking at me.
Up to this point we had just been talking about regular stuff like sports, sports and more sports. We didn’t really talk about “anything” before after Angelica left.
When she did, Peter and I got into some really heavy conversation.
He started out by asking me why is was so frustrated. He said that he knew that the reason why I walked up to them earlier, and asked what she was doing with him, was that I needed a change in my life.
He figured out that I had recently lost my girlfriend, and that I was really angry and sad inside.
Not just because of my ex, but also because I felt like I had lost control over myself. He said that loosing control is one of the most dangerous things a man can lose
I didn’t agree with him then, but I do now.
Right in the middle of the conversation, Peter said that he had to go. He gave me a business card with his number on it, and said that I should call him sometime. We both knew that I would throw away the card as soon as he had left.
But then he said something that changed my mind.
“You know, Alex… You owe me a beer”.
Just like him and Angelica earlier that day, I couldn’t stop laughing.
Written out like this, it doesn’t seem funny at all. But somehow it was, it almost felt magical.
Like a big burden had been taken away from my back.
Before I had the chance to reply, Peter left.
The following days, I was really confused. Like I was trying to solve a giant puzzle inside my head, but I didn’t know where to begin.
My mind worked 24/7, but I couldn’t “figure it out”, even though I didn’t know what “it” was.
One day I felt exceptional ill, and decided to call Peter.
He picked up just before I was about to hang up.
He said that he would like to see me again, and that he had a lot to tell and teach me.
We decided to meet up later that day, at a big square right in the middle of the city.
The second meeting
My heart was pounding really fast when I was standing there, waiting for him, in the middle of a thousand people.
Someone grabbed my shoulder, and I was instantly relaxed. There were just this aura around Peter; it’s really hard to explain.
I thought we were going to some bar again or something, but he actually invited me back home to his apartment.
I am not going to give you all the details, not today anyway, but meeting Peter is perhaps the most life changing experience I have ever had.
He told me that good looking girls are just girls, and even though some of them do know their market value, they are also quite bored with guys looking (too) good and acting (too) smart.
Sometimes the best way to approach these women is just to treat them as what they are… girls. Not super models.
They have been ass-kissed their whole life, and they don’t need another man to ask them out to a dinner, just so he can tell her how beautiful her eyes are.
Strange enough, behaving slightly uninterested or maybe just slightly rude (with manners!) towards these women will often work wonders.
Stay cool, be yourself. If you and your personality is interesting, you’re already miles ahead of most guys.
Women love men who are in control of themselves, not trying too hard, but playing by their own rules.
Peter is exactly like this.
He told me that he knew how I felt, and that he had been at the exact same spot in his own life just a few years ago.
It was so fascinating to listen to him. For the first few hours, I don’t think I spoke more than a few words. I was just nodding my head, listening.
What Peter taught me
Since then, Peter has been one of my very best friends. It’s always a blast to hang out with him, and in fact, I see him almost as my own brother.
He has taught me so many things about life. Too many to write down here.
But the most important thing he has taught me is that I have the ability to change. I can do whatever I want!
I know this sound like some lame “pocket philosophy”, but you, and only you, can improve your own life.
You’re in control; all the time. You take and make your own decisions. It’s your life.
And that’s why I have named this post “Date Like a Movie Star Without Looking Like Brad Pitt”. Because you can.
Looks don’t matter when it really comes down to having and living a fulfilling life.
You can date whoever you want; you just need the right attitude. It takes time, I know, but time is the only thing that all us humans have in common.
My financial situation for example, has always been great. I have never in my life really had money problems.
Girls have been a problem for me almost all my life though. When I wasn’t seeing anyone, when I didn’t have any dates, I would feel really lonely.
But when I was seeing someone, I would mentally push them away, because it was never good enough for me.
There was always this “but”, that I know now, I created myself.
I did it, and so can you
So the point of the story is this: Take action now, don’t wait until tomorrow. You, and only you, have the ability to live the life you want. You make yourself happy; don’t rely on outer conditions.
I’m sorry if this post was a little long, but I promise you, if you read through it all, it was worth it.
After all, I’m worth your time.
