Pretty good (but what do I know?)
on November 17, 2003
Let there be no pretenses -- I'm a loser.
Always have been, always will be. That's just the type of person I am, and nothing is going to change that. So when the guy sitting next to me at work recommended that I read, "How to Develop Self-Confidence and Influence People", I was skeptical.
First of all, I don't even think this guy likes me. He probably thinks I'm a dork because I've never had a girlfriend. It's not like I can help it -- girls don't like guys like me. They want someone that drives a fast car and can drink lots of beer. Sorry, but I'll never be cool like that.
Well, I did what he said, and read the book. It's good -- I guess -- but I don't see how it's going to help me. It's not like girls are going to start talking to me now that I've read this book. No matter what I do, they're always going to think that I'm a loser.
There are a couple of things in this book that might help me increase my self-confidence and my ability to influence people, but I doubt it.
