I was taking pre-med courses from 25-27 while I was fixing my issues, in order to get a Ph D.
I figured out that academia wasn’t for me, so I decided to pursue my passion and work full time on Self Hacked and other ventures.
The apps started saying “there is no one left in your area.” Thinking I might be doing something wrong, I even paid 2 different girls to do the online and app dating for me. I ended up attracting the wrong types of women that I wasn’t interested in anyway.
I’ve now realized that I will probably meet someone eventually, but it could take 5-10 years and a lot of effort.
Actually, I had never had more than a superficial or short-term encounter with anyone who wasn’t Jewish until the age of 27. When I was in college, I realized my academic skills were non-existent. So, my focus from 20-23 was to improve my academic abilities. I improved my verbal skills, logical reasoning, math, writing, and general knowledge of the world.
I graduated college with a 4.0 and scored in the 99th percentile on the GREs.
Shortly after I came back to the States, I decided that religion wasn’t for me.
I searched around and realized that a ‘Zen’ attitude was most suitable for me and used it as a framework to live my life.
My time is the bottleneck in a lot of projects that I want to start and complete.
However, if I like someone, then that radically changes the equation in terms of where I spend my time.
So, I’m all about “hacks” and I’m trying a new hack to find a long-term girlfriend.
This is an experiment to see if I can find a quality woman through this unconventional way.
