    The Under 20 Rewiring League

    Sir Draganos

    What Is Rewiring?

    Rewiring is having intimate contact with a real woman to trigger a natural arousal response.

    It doesn't necessarily mean sex, but having sex is the most effective way of rewiring. Hugging, kissing, touching, holding hands with a woman are all methods of rewiring.

    How To Participate In The Rewiring League:

    1. Check if there's any available spaces. The maximum allowed in each league is 10 people.

    2. If there are any spaces available in your age group, post on this thread stating your interest and I will add you to the league as soon as I can.

    3. Once you are admitted to the league, you should log in each day and answer 5 questions. Your answers will determine your score, and hence success rate (and therefore the rank in the league).

    Your 5 Questions:

    Did you avoid watching porn today?
    The purpose of rewiring is to become receptive to real-life experiences and real-life women. Conditioning your brain to be aroused by porn goes against the goal of rewiring.

    Did you receive at least 8 hours of sleep last night?
    A healthy amount sleep is integral for mental and physical well-being, and is very likely to speed up the rewiring process. As our brains are in the process of changing to return to a more natural state, a longer amount of sleep than usual would be ideal. However, 8 hours as a minimum would be beneficial enough.

    Did you interact with a beautiful woman today for more than 2 minutes?
    All experiences of interacting with women in the offline world contributes and helps towards the rewiring process, as long as you feel attraction to them.

    Did you avoid fantasising about intimacy today?
    Like abstaining from porn, abstaining from fantasy further conditions your mind to tend towards being attracted to women in the real-life world, rather than virtual or imaginary women.

    Did you spend at least 30 minutes doing a healthy activity today?
    Most members of this forum right now (after countless relapses) will probably realise that abstinence is not enough. Your brain still craves dopamine, and if you don't fill the gap left from abandoning porn with a healthy hobby, you will turn to unhealthy habits which bring about a dopamine high, or back to porn itself.

    It doesn't matter if you enter later than everyone else. This will not affect your success rate.

    Lastly, this thread is here for group support and sharing advice, on the following topics:

    1. Sharing your experiences on the rewiring process.
    2. Requesting help on any aspect of the rewiring process.
    3. Requesting and sharing your sexual experiences (especially from Karezza) to help with rewiring.

    1. Sharing your experiences during your reboot.
    2. Requesting help on any aspect of rebooting.
    3. Requesting and sharing reboot advice to members of this group.

    Lifestyle improvement:
    1. Sharing advice on improving one's lifestyle.
    2. Requesting advice on how to solve a lifestyle issue.

    1. Feedback about this thread. Any constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement are more than welcome.
    2. Suggesting new websites, threads or topics to add to the resources section.
    3. Anything else!

    Please minimise use of explicit or suggestive sexual language when writing your posts. Thank you.


    At the end of the year, the appropriate userbar will be sent to the members who achieve a high success rate.

    Gold Award:
    70% success rate or above

    Silver Award:
    60% success rate or above

    Bronze Award:
    50% success rate or above

    Don't let failure keep you down ;)

    Awesome idea! I’ve been trying to stop controlling everything, and just let the chips fall as they may. Therefore I wont be active in this challenge, as I’ll likely just put pressure on myself / the interaction if I do. I’m all for meeting women though.
    Again Awesome Idea!

    Re: ★ The 2014 Under 20 Rewiring Thread ★

    I like the intention of this, we PMO addicts need to get off the computer and start talking to real girls but this is spreadsheet addiction! I do think we need to encourage each other to get out there more, but counting approaches is a little too far. This system also seems to favor multiple partners since each girl can only count as 1, so say I approach a girl and over a month we start dating and fucking regularly thats still 1 point.

    I do need some motivation to find someone though, I go to a smallish high school so options are pretty limited and most any decent girl is either taken or has really high standards here since most of our girls are disgusting. Its been almost a year since I hit on a girl, and that was the only girl I ever hit on. It turned out pretty well all things considered.

    I wrote a long reflective post about how I originally messed up my wiring in my journal, and writing it really did remind me how important breaking that connection is going to be.

    Re: ★ The 2014 Under 20 Rewiring Thread ★

    The purpose of this thread is to encourage us to get out there and approach/date as many girls as possible. Nothing wrong with that. More experience with girls=more attractive to girls. And of course lots of opportunities to rewire if the dates turn out well ;)

    And if you find a girlfriend, by all means stop. You'll have all the rewiring you need just from her. But right now, i think i need to date more girls before i get to that stage for experience alone.

    Great thread. I started a few weeks ago, but couldn't approach. I don't know why I am so scared. Even if it is something super awkward it is still a massive social experience.

    Ryan94's Approach Spreadsheet - January


    Didn't have much time or energy to focus on approaching due to University exams, assignments and everything else coming at me all at once. I will improve this by February.

    Approaches were all basically rejections due to my nervousness and inexperience of leading a conversation. Girls usually found a way to leave the awkward conversation mid-way, gave their number out of politeness or just generally didn't like me.

    Re: ★ The 2014 Under 20 Rewiring Thread ★

    Start approaching again this Month and post up your experiences on March 1st, and let's compare how we did. You seem to be a beginner in this like myself.

    What i suggest you do (what i did when i first started and began panicking when i saw a beautiful girl I wanted to approach) is first listen to some upbeat music beforehand that makes you happy or determined. Then just make small talk with random strangers ('terrible weather, eh?' or 'what's the time? - Are you local?' or anything that seems appropriate). Then you'll have much more momentum and confidence to approach a pretty girl when you see her. Trust me, it works!
    After a day of approaching, you don't even need to do that anymore, your confidence is already high enough to talk to girls, though you may still feel really nervous in doing so.

    I was born and raised in a small town with very limited interaction with anyone - especially girls. My type of dyslexia makes my ability to talk and think spontaneously really hard, but i'm doing fine right now - experience always prevails. Besides, your PMO counter is incredible. I have total faith that you'll do well eventually, though it may take time.

    By the way, how old are you? Have you ever had a girlfriend before?

    Hey, man. I've never had a girlfriend before. I think in the last few weeks I've noticed that I am coming out of my flatline. During the flatline it was a bit hard to respond to touch from girls. I am 19 now. In my whole teens, I avoided talking to girls and I always escaped with video games and porn. I had a bad social anxiety and low self esteem. As I quit pmo my confidence was definetely higher, and my life improved significantly in many areas. But I could make a lot more progress if I started rewiring as early as possible I think.

    The fear I have looks ridiculous to me now. I am studying in London and the streets are quite busy during the day. Just need to get that momentum going I guess. I also don't go out regularly as I am quite busy with college as well. I will make a spreadsheet and post it here. Good luck to you too.

    Hey, i'm 19 and just moved to London for my studies. How strange. At least the variables between our approach spreadsheets will be minimal. It's an even playing field now.

    Sorry i've taken a while to reply to your post. But the truth is, i've totally fallen hopelessly in love already with a girl i met. We've been on 2 dates already. I've held her hand and kissed her. Approaching and dating other girls is just out of the question. I can't do it. Amazing how the perfect girl comes into one's life in the time you least expect it!

    Though, knowing me, i'll probably mess up. So i'm not going to rule myself out completely here.

    Congratulations for finding a girl to rewire with. Good luck on your rebooting. This will be a big help.

    I haven't gone out in a while. My exam is tommorow, so I will go in the weekend to approach. I hope I will have to balls to do it.

    Very interesting and healthy challenge dude.
    I will start it right now. ;D

    A few days back I talked to some hot girls in a bar with a friend and that gave me some confidence to keep trying. I could even have a nice conversation, and I actually enjoyed it.

    It was one of the few experiences I have had of approaching to woman that I have never met before.

    I only have one question: Does it only count with beautiful girls or any kind?, I mean it requires more courage to talk to a hot girl than an average. Do you get the idea?

    What I am trying to say is that Does it has to feel like a challenge every time I am going to approach?

    PD: Sorry for my english, Im from Costa Rica.

    YHWH bless you :)

    Hey Daguilara, nice to have you up to the challenge. Your English is perfect

    It only counts with beautiful girls. Every guy talks to regular girls, and asking out a regular girl is not so sincere (meaning there's less of a challenge).

    But you may ask yourself, which girl counts as a beautiful girl? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all. Sometimes, there are girls you may feel attracted to, but are not so pretty.

    Let me put it this way. Before you approach a girl, ask yourself this:
    If you were stuck inside a closet with her, would you feel turned on, or would you feel aversive?

    If you would feel turned on, then she counts as a girl to add to your approach spreadsheet. If not, she's just a normal girl, and doesn't count.

    Hope that helps. See you at the end of the month :)

    Seems like a good challenge, I´ll join :)

    Question: If I´m at a party talking to a girl, does it count like an aproach? I mean when I´m not really looking for a number but rather sex or kissing or just a conversation.

    Sure, any instance where you've taken the initiative to talk to a pretty girl counts as an approach as long as there's a reason for it to take you closer to rewiring

    E.g. Talking to a pretty girl in the aim to receive her number, go out on a date with her, or even skip straight to sex = an approach

    Just asking a pretty girl what the time is *with no attempt to move things forward* = no approach. Small talk is no challenge, nor does it bring you closer to rewiring.

    Hope i made things clear. Welcome to the challenge GetTheFapsOut :)

    Update: As you can see from my constant relapsing for the past few days, it didn't turn out well with the girl i was dating. So i'm going to concentrate much harder on approaching girls this time round.

    The positives are that i know exactly what went wrong and how to improve for next time. It was a shame. I really liked her. But i know i wasn't ready. I still got a lot of learning to do...

    Just a bit of advice: Never, ever become more interested in a girl than she is to you. This is why it's so important to keep dating as much as you can before she asks you to commit to her. Knowing there are other options help you keep a cool head.

    2nd Update: Added Prizes to the challenge. Hope this will give people a little bit of encouragement and motivation!

    Uhm I do think the reward thing is a good idea, I think it´s way to hard though. I mean let´s say you in fact go on a date with like 10% of the girls for the easiest reward (minimum of 250 aproaches). This will give you 25 dates in a year and if even if no1 leads to a second date, you´ll still have a date every 2 weeks. And for the mastery award you´ll have 100 dates a year.

    Personally I think it would be more clever if you lowered the required points and made all points you get from phone numbers and sex etc countable for the awards. Aswell alowing you to get multiple sex-points from one girl :) . Just my opinion, I know I would struggle alot to put the effort into approaching 250 girls

    I lowered the number of approaches required for each prize, but it's important to remember that this challenge is to motivate you to go out and socialise, as well as to rewire.

    If it was solely rewiring, it would simply be a competition to see who can get a girlfriend first, which would neither be that challenging (look around, everyone has one), nor will it contribute significantly to our social growth.
    PMO-ing encourages introverted behaviour, and it's through this challenge that we break that ingrained introverted behaviour, and focus on rewiring to strengthen our socialising capabilities.

    200 approaches, 300 approaches or 500 approaches really isn't that much. That's equivalent to approaching 1 or 2 women most days you walk to work/school in the morning, or when you walk to the shops in the evening. Everyone is capable of that, so now's the time to push yourself and get out there ;)

    hey, i like this idea. is there some kind of thread for people over 20? I just turned 21 a few months ago, so I guess I am in an other league....lol . I will begin in 4 days with my approaching but mainly to work on my approach anxiety, so more small talk stuff, to get rid of the anxiety and change it more to direct approaching gradually.
