    Prologue and Chapter 1

    Hey I'm Reno. It's not my real name, but I figured it was better than saying my username renoxuken all the time. I've been a rather silent member of the LS community for a few years now.

    I've been casually reading some of the material I've bought over the years, and have never acted on it. That changed yesterday. I've taken the first baby step in the long journey of my successes and failures, and what I've learned from both.

    I hope you find my entries interesting and thought-provoking, or at the very least worth the time it takes to read them. Hopefully you can learn from my successes and failures, and maybe even I can learn something new when I look back on them in the future.



    I'll share a little information about myself to help you see where I'm coming from. Then I will write a short list of my overall goals I hope to achieve with all of this. I'll warn you now it's a bit of a long read. If you'd like to know how I'm progressing, you can go to my Field Report thread Humble Beginnings And A Never Ending Journey.(will be posted later today)

    I was the shy child in school. I made friends with the misfits and geeks in kindergarten and middle school. This didn't help my social life. In fact, outside of family events, I didn't really have one. I eventually decided to just lay low in high school and avoid as much embarrassment I would bring to myself as possible. For the most part I was successful. Obviously this didn't help my social life either.

    I think one of the main reasons why I did this was because I was interested in things most of the other people in my age would consider "geeky". I loved videogames, anime, manga, fantasy books, etc. and still do. It was all I wanted to talk about, and anything else didn't really interest me, and I knew all that stuff had a bad social stigma so I avoided interacting with my peers in hopes of hiding my true colors.

    Nevertheless, I've improved my social skills over the years mainly through my job at subway and the more relaxed environment that is inherent with community college life. I interacted with and became friends with people whom, under other circumstances, I would have never befriended. I learned to hide my passion of geeky stuff from them, although one of my goals is to be open about this and still have a successful social life(more on that in my goals). I've also found other things over the years that I enjoy that my coworkers and peers can relate to.

    In some ways I live a double-life. People outside of my family have absolutely no idea that I'm into gaming, anime, etc. as much as I am. Hell, the majority of my family doesn't even know. I just find other things to talk about now. I also try my best not to look the part of a stereotypical geek with the help of resources such as Alpha M(which I highly recommend if you're having trouble figuring out where to start on men's fashion) and some threads on these forums.

    That being said, I don't really ever bring friends over to my house. I have one good friend from high school who is a pretty cool guy and that's it. I pretty much never hangout with any coworkers or fellow college students outside of the required times, and I'm not sure of going about it to accomplish those things. And I most certainly never brought a girl home or went on a date my whole life.

    I've discovered through my observations of people whether it be from school, work, or youtube vloggers, etc. is that people are more accepting of a person who loves geeky things if they have a major interest that is more socially acceptable. Things such as, in my case recently, acting. Originally I mainly liked writing, but I've become really interested in acting as of late and would like to try my hand and it for awhile since I never really gave it a chance.

    I figure acting classes and hopefully participation in local theatre productions eventually will help boost my social skills while also possibly be a fulfilling hobby for me. I also was in choir from 7th grade all the way through high school and I think I may try to get back into that soon.

    So TLDR version of that is:
    • I used to have practically zero social skills in my childhood.
    • I've learned things overtime to talk about with coworkers and fellow students
    • I'm definitely more social than I used to be, but I still have only one or two actual friends, and I've never dated a girl in my life.
    • I believe that through exploring other interests such as acting and choir, I may boost my social skills while at the same time have something more interesting about me than just me liking video games, anime, etc.
    • The main thing is that I need to get out more


    Some more little bit's of info about myself:
    • I'm 21
    • I'm in the last couple semesters of community college for my Associate's degree, and will be going to a university within the next year or so.
    • As of this post I currently own Magic Bullets, Phone and Text Game book by Braddock, and routines manual 1. I haven't finished any of them yet.
    • I'm Christian
    • I have no interest in getting drunk ever, although I don't mind having a beer with friends or hanging out with people who are drinking.
    • I want to wait to have sex(including oral) until marriage, not just for religious reasons but for personal reasons as well. However...
    • I'm not opposed to making out and such. A guy's gotta have fun somehow right?
    • I have had a problem with pornography in the past, and still struggle with it today.


    There's some pretty personal stuff on that list, which is why I'm most likely never going to state my real name or the city I live in, and obscure my face from any photos I post here in the future. However, I feel that if I want to truly change my life, I need to be completely honest with those who are willing to help me or at least be there with me on this journey.

    My goals for LoveSystems, this site, etc.:
    • Enjoy a more fulfilling social life and having good times with the many friends I will make on this road.
    • Being comfortable and confident enough to not care what people may think of me because of my interests.
    • Being relieved to not have to hide my interests anymore.
    • The feeling of accomplishment knowing I helped others who have had similar problems as me by writing these entries.
    • Feeling great about the life enriching experiences of having met, dated, and befriended beautiful women.
    • Being confident in knowing and finding the girl I want to marry someday.


    Immediate steps to take:
    • Read extensively the LS material that I already own.
    • Save money to enroll in an acting class. Probably am improv. class since I have no experience
    • Build the courage to go out and start approaching



    This is as far as I'll go for now. Thank you so much if you have read the entirety of this post. It really means a lot to me. As I have stated earlier you can check up on my progress in my thread Humble Beginnings And A Never Ending Journey(will be posted later today). I really hope you check it out and join me in this exciting new chapter of my life!

    Well I was under the Impression that I could edit my thread at least within 24 hours of posting it. I guess I was wrong.

    Anyway, I posted my first Field Report in my thread Humble Beginnings And A Never Ending Journey. Go check it out! I'm sure it'll be interesting for most. And I'm always open to tips and help so feel free to comment!

    good luck, you will never achieve by just watching and need to truly do in order to learn.

    Shyness is normal, just realize that you have a lot to give to this world and those around will never hear what is never spoken. Stop being selfish and share your spirit with the world!

    sincerely,
    Soldier King
