  1. Thank you, I used to watch your videos. Until I realised that all the advice contained within them serves no purpose other than trying to impress other people.

    The moment I stopped doing that, was when people loved me. These days, I simply don't care what other people think of me. I don't use any tricks or methods in order to manipulate others into liking me, or believing I'm charming, or avoiding silences.

    If there are silences, I certainly don't feel awkward. I let them hang for as long as I can, just to see what the other person does. It's curious how different people respond to silence.

    If the silence between two people is awkward, then those two people just don't click. Simple as that. Trying to force it through with tricks is doomed to failure.

    Just be yourself, come what may. The day you stop worrying about others, is the day you free yourself from nonsense like this, where you try and fake being someone you're not.

    Who cares if not everyone likes you. There are 8 billion people in this world. Instead of wasting your energy trying to make an interaction work with someone, just find someone else to interact with instead. It really is that simple.

  2. I solved the "never be boring again" situation years ago. I just started carrying a couple of machetes on me. People never act bored around me. They are always glued to every thing I say and do. My personality is so amazing that people quickly become overwhelmed by it and I've had numerous people actually run away because my personality was too amazing. Good times… good times.

  3. I can handle silence very well and it doesn't feel awkward to me at all 🤷‍♂️ . It doesn't belongs to me if someone thinks I'm boring

  4. Any advice for people who sees that you are positive and they will relentlessly work to bring you down?

  5. Honestly my most charismatic moments are when I’m just being goofy af 😂

  6. I was helping two blind women at work today and one of them mentioned that her suitcase was too tightly packed and wasn't happy about it. I replied, "Yeah, my trousers feel the same way." They cackled with laughter. A wee drop of self depracating humour.

  7. "Look like Chris Hemsworth in order to never be boring in conversation." Got it.

  8. So all I have to do is change my name to Chris and I'll have a lot of charisma?

  9. @7:17 the smallest clip from Not Another Teen Movie. I was wondering when I'd finally see footage from the movie that introduced me to Chris Evans. That film was gold back in the day!

  10. Don't pay people to tell you to be nice. Just make the best of the day and let what light you have left shine. If you feel fake with it they are probably ars*holes anyway. Good ppl seek out good ppl. Those who don't are the above. DONT WASTE TIME ON VALIDATION!

  11. Can they just say it and THEN laugh? Hard to understand what they saying.

  12. With me, things come to mind but I just think this too much “should I say that?”

  13. My problem isn't "that's not good enough for me to say". It's "wow, that would be extremely inappropriate for this work meeting I'm in right now"

  14. My problem is that i am annoyingly funny. I think girls laugh but don't grow any attraction towards me. I think nuances is important. They are celebrities.

  15. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today…

  16. Playfulness & positivity combined are insanely charming. Being around a person like that can make you feel so much more relaxed and ready to be yourself, instead of being so serious and logical in every conversation and situation. It's also pretty rare to find those lighthearted people, so if you can cultivate those skills you'll stand out in a great way.
