The get the guy event was AMAZEBALZZ (as some of my friends say). Got my book signed, and a photo (though I wished it was a better taken one though), and wrote down some really good stuff. Of course he talked more in detail about the 'attraction formula' which you can see here. (actually that is something that i found out before the event, and it does make a lot of sense.) You can also see some really cool stuff here, and here.
Anyway, back to what I was going to say: one good advice that he gave that i REALLY REALLY like was this:
Invest in a guy based on how much he invests in you, not on how much you like him.
And it totally made sense! There were also times when he adviced, "think like a politician" for certain circumstances, which of course also made sense. The event ended up finishing 1 hour later than intended, so it was already really late for me to put on my workout clothes and take a bike ride once i was home, and i didn't want to go to the theaters alone :P. that's kinda weird. . . but i was glad that he was kind to stay with us for that long. ^___^
I think there were plenty of us that felt like school girls at some point because we all kinda have this mini crush on him. XD You can't blame us for that.
I also met a new acquaintance through this event. My goal since this past 2 weeks has been to attend at least 1 social event per week and AT LEAST meet 1 new person per week. That also comes with staying in contact with the people i have already met, and seeing if we can hang out at events to meet even more new people. yea!
I know i asked some people to come and join me for 6flags, and realized that it may be expensive to fly over here or drive or whatever, but think of it this way,
Money, you will get back. Time, you wont.
After the event, i took my time walking back to the train station. It was a nice day (for chicago): as in it wasn't snowing, the wind wasn't so strong that it could blow me (yes the wind can do that to me), still cloudy but for once i felt like strolling. it's still cold (for me), but much better than before. At the station, saw a few Amish people. Mostly men, and like. . . . . 3 women (of course attended by a man). I wonder what they are thinking.
That will be another goal of mine. If I see a group of amish women or mennonite women just staring at the river that, i'll just come up to them and ask a question! Before i was always curious as to why this why that, so i'm gonna just do it! No more "ooo, i'm too shy to come up to them and ask". I'm changing.
Back to the seminar:
another good point that i wished i had known how to say this earlier was the question of "what do you want in a guy?". He gave us 30 seconds to write down our answer, but i didn't write down anything because it would be impossible to pin-point what i want. So i just wrote down this:
Face it, if you just write down "nice, funny, intelligent, talkative", you're still going to be bored because you want more than just that. We all want everything! This is why i made my list based on physical stuff, cuz that stuff is easy to pin-point out and i know that what i expect from those physical things are pretty basic. Once I told Joaquinito that i would like a guy that is taller than me, but that's been a long time. I said it because at the time, I didn't know what specifically i wanted, so i said something ridiculous.
If you ask me that now, I'm not gonna say that. I don't care if he's shorter, same height or taller. I just want everything. If i'm going to be with someone and be in love with someone, they have to adore me and worship the ground i walk on in the same way i will do for them. And that's all for today. ^^ Night night.
