Overall no, I've never made any special effort to "improve myself" in general. I will admit that during the rare times I know that I'm going to be spending time with a woman I'm interested in, I will take a little extra effort into making myself presentable. Which basically just means showering and shaving, and maybe throwing on some body spray to be safe. As far as "acting like Chad", I don't think I could. You can't just take on a fake personality. And if you're someone like me who is pretty openly honest about who they are, the very idea is sort of absurd on its face, to pretend to be someone you're not. I'm not a loud-speaking, cocky person. I'm an introvert. Telling an introvert to pretend to be something other than they are is silly.
