I found pulling relatively easy in my early to mid 20's. Relatively in that there would also be knock backs
When I hit mid 20's I found the internet and obviously my attention turned to porn and chat sites. The girls in porn did a whole bunch of stuff the average girl I pulled didn't do, most notably anal. I was desperate to try it and took the plunge with Caprice of Wolves around 2003.
Although it took me a while to relax and properly enjoy punting, the internet was a much easier and exciting way to chat to girls on sites like Faceparty and ICQ. This was cheaper than going out round town and I started to enjoy it more than pulling in clubs whilst drunk as a skunk. So standard pulling in a club was loosing it's appeal.
Obviously the girls on the chat sites I mentioned, whilst nice girls, didn't come up to the standards of the girls in porn still and I slowly but surely turned to punting again ... and again ... and again ... until 1 day it seamed second nature.
My best mate is suspicious as I am single and don't have the inclination to go out like I once did but appreciates I enjoy the ladies.
The excitement is that on any given day, within 30 mins to an hour of making the decision, you can have sex with a lady you desire with minimal effort. The easy way is the best way as they say.
As a guy now in my late 30's i'd not have much chance with girls in their early to mid 20's. I'm also a different character to my early 20's in that back then i'd adapt myself to each girl I spoke to and take an interest in what they liked. Being genuine and also getting older, I have no interest in the guff that most girls follow nowadays, celebrities, chart music etc
