So, you've lost your mojo, have you? There was a time in the not-so-distant past that you were one of the hot ones; a regular Casanova. However, you have been slipping of late, and your decline in the last year has been, in a word, precipitous. All your friends insist you still have the talent to make it, but for whatever reason it just ain't happening. In fact, you are barely a blip on the nightclub scene anymore and those fantastic after-hour parties? Pfft. You can barely remember the last time you were invited to a really good one. I suppose that crazy luau in New Orleans a few years ago stands out and by all accounts you rocked it, but even those memories are starting to fade into obscurity. Folks are really beginning to question your stamina and, worst of all, your dedication. While your friends and rivals are dancing and living large late into the evening, you've packed your tent and the night is over. Sometimes, vitamins and pills are just not enough.
You must take action, but it is difficult to know where to start. Do you have it within you to rise back to the top, or at least a #2 ranking? The competition is fierce all over and some people will cheat just to get the girl. You are on the outside, looking in. Saturday night, however, is a new beginning. It's another chance.
Turns out, some gal really wants to meet you...again. And she’s a looker, too. Scratch that. She’s stunning. This gal is taking a leap of faith because she's searching, but she’s always been there. You just hadn’t noticed in a while. She's a rare gem, this one. She's loyal to a fault. So now, this Saturday night, you’re about to show up on her front door with flowers and a nice big box of Godiva chocolates and she has absolutley no idea what to expect, other than past reputation. This is a true blind date. Your bio says you have experience in all the skill positions and have drastically improved in certain areas like strength and conditioning. You claim to have that important quality of leadership (whatever that means) and, thus far, have pretty much backed that up by staying on the good side of the law. You’re the kind of guy that she could take home to meet mama. She’s interested. You can tell by her body language. Tell us more…
You brag about your attention to detail and willingness to do all the “little things.” I have it on good authority that this is exactly what a she wants to hear. Saying things and actually doing things are two different things, my friend. You have to act.
Now this gal is not looking for a short-term thing. She yearns for a commitment, but are YOU committed? Word on the street has it that a year ago you didn't put in the necessary time to be the best you could be. And it really showed in a big way. You fumbled when you were about to score on more than one occasion. In some critical situations, just when it looked as if scoring wasn't an issue, you didn't finish the drill. You've got to do better than that, my man.
It's time to ask yourself: What will it take to sweep this girl off her feet and live happily ever after? Are you going to, despite your ability, intellect and charm, whiff again only to be sitting at home lamenting “what if" while your rivals get all the glory? This girl we're talking about...she really, really loves you. She believes in you. Do you believe in yourself? Look, if I upset you, it's okay to get defensive. Really.
Your move, stud.
