I'm sure it's not just me either.
There are hundreds of registered users and thousands of unregistered lurkers....
Why... is NO ONE posting..?
I mean, I'll still post each and every single one of my field reports here as well as cc forum, but still.. I've gotten absolutely no feedback, not even from the alumns of abc and I'm gonna be joining the ranks of abc graduates before the end of this year....
So the community, that's supposed to support, help, improve, critique, answer questions, and every other way of making its brothers a better person... where is it? I mean, to type of a few words and click reply isn't so much to ask for. I'm sure any of these newbies posting in the fr/lr section or having a basic question that needs answering would be so happy if anyone could just tell them how (I'm included in there, I want improvement and I want someone to help me out)
It's not needy, just look at the last posts in the forums
Okay, disclaimer, this might sound needy... But still! No reason for no one to be posting for help nor helping. It's a cycle this is. People put up reports on what they did assuming someone will answer them and help them out, they're super excited about it, then no one answers. Then they stop putting up reports and asking questions, then when someone who wants to help comes along, there's no one to help.
I'm gonna try to stop this cycle. It sucks. But I can't do it alone, there needs to be people posting .

There's a cycle that happens, especially with ABCs students that I've noticed in the time I've been with the company.
Student takes bootcamp, super excited Posts Field Reports Student gets really good Student disappears from the board
6 months to 6 years later, student reappears telling us how he just got out of a long term relationship, posts more field reports Student struggles a little bit, then remembers his teachings Student gets really good again Student disappears from the board because of a long term relationship AGAIN.
The people who truly win the game, are the ones who leave it. Lots of guys don't realize that at one point in their lives, they need to STOP being pick up artists and start being people.
When Gareth and I were sitting down at lunch one day, we talked about how we have both stopped actively sarging and hunting for women. They either just come to us, or we have our own group of girls that we enjoy our time with. Not in the least bit are we worried about getting married. I don't know about G, but I plan on getting married in 10 years, this time right now is when I'm digging for the right girl.
If done correctly, Pick up just adds a layer of attractive women and allows one to take control in their dating life, not let their dating life control them. There are too many guys that just get sucked and immersed into the community that end up being creepy PUA dudes until their 40's. Do you really want to be hunting for 20-something girls when you're 40?

Ben J has a point and it has been a common thing I see with pretty much every forum. Most guys don't last longer than 6 months, so respect for staying out there and working hard.
