(which is a lie, I wanted to be sleeping at home) I talked to some random guy, pretended I was tipsy as an excuse, and said really loud "YEAH you're the man!". He shouts back "YOU da man!". The girls come over and start finding excuses to talk. This is a partial element of charm. See how I artificially changed the environment through a lie to be attractive?
What you'll find is some of the most "popular" and "attractive" people are the most fake. All of it is simply an act.
Yeah, I don't know whether to laugh or vomit...
