My LavaLife Experiment: Preview of Chapters

I am far from an expert on dating, the fact that I had 4 real girlfriends in 14 years is more than a proof to that statement.
However, my intensive 2 month and 20 dates experience in LavaLife in 2008 was enough to teach me a bunch of things about the world of online dating, women, and promoting yourself in general.
I’ve put together a preliminary list of all the topics and chapters about my experiences dating online. In time I will create a post for each of the chapters.
Bear with me in this journey to share my insights on my experiences and if you have anything to share or add to my rantings please feel free to do so in the comments.

Final thoughts and advice about the Online Dating Jungle

My LavaLife Experiment: What happens when you send 2000 smiles?

This is the story of me attempting to date as many women as possible in 2 months using an online dating service, LavaLife. My goals were to better understand women, get laid, learn to date, get better at seducing, meet new people, and overall have fun doing in it.

Following, I will tell you the details of how it all unfolded, my thoughts about online dating, how to succeed against your odds, and what did I learn from it.
I hope you, my dear readers (yes, all of you two!), find my tale interesting, entertaining, and maybe inspiring enough to share your own experiences or opinions about online dating.

Online dating has become huge on most developed countries. Everyone knows at least one or two couples that met online. Almost every other person has heard of or even tried online dating themselves so I am sure that there are thousands upon thousand of very unique stories, experiments, and experiences out there. I encourage you to share them with me and the world, I encourage you to debate and criticize my opinions and advice. My story is another one among many, I write about it because I believe it to be unusual, and because what I learned from it it may somehow benefit other online daters to become more successful, aware and motivated to keep dating or staying away from it all together!

On two months I dated a total of 20 women which turned out to be very time consuming, but very rewarding at the same time. To those 20 wonderful women I want to say thank you for taking the time to meet the crazy Spaniard in person. Also, I want to assure you that, unless you express your own explicit desire to be given credit on this story, I will keep your iden-tities 100% anonymous ;).

Who is not this story for

This story may not be so interesting to hot girls or guys that have tried online dating because they will not be familiar with the difficulties that average, fat, short, troll looking, or just plain normal individuals face in order to score even a single date. In most cases, hot people, specially women don’t even have to send even a single smile, it is quite the opposite, they have to delete, block, neglect, even be rude in order to cope with their popularity, which in itself can be a curse.. but a curse many guys like me wouldn’t mind sharing for some time as well..
I will let you, the hot person, tell your own story about how to deal with those hordes of persistent, freaky, perverted and rude online predators that seem to plague dating sites today. Almost, as a much as those fake profiles of hot Russian girls that want your attention for no reason and prey on many gullible, desperate, lonely cyber-souls.
This story is not for people that easily get offended with explicit material as well. If you are, I suggest you skip the chapters about the Fucking Machine and Shooting Porn in Mallorca.

Who may be interested in this tale

I really hope the whole world. But the whole world is very big and most of the whole world has many other interesting things to do and take care of besides reading my story.
This tale is for people that want to know more about online dating, that want to find the confidence to go out there and find the perfect match, that are curious about what can happen when you date many people in a short period of time, that are not confident about their looks or their odds are stacked against them on the online dating jungle. This tale is ultimately for anyone that enjoys human ingenuity, and like me, love to push boundaries to learn, experience new things and ultimately by doing so, hopefully becoming a better person.
