Question about Pulling

It's me again, I wasnt online much because I was busy and out of town for 2 weeks. Shaved a few times since I was last here and I'm still having problems. What makes the pulling of hairs occur?

Ok I tried using the DE razor with the king of shaves shaving gel I got to practice before my brush came. I used a dorco blade. Didnt like it at all, not sure if it was the blade, the fact I used a gel or what, but I didnt like it. Most of the time it either felt like it was pulling or not doing any...

Lost the bid on ebay so it will be longer before I get a brush. Im kinda sick of waiting, I got the creams and shaving soap, razor, blades the works. Is there a way I can get a good lather so I can shave instead of waiting on the brush?

Got everything but a brush, which I just bid on ebay (didn't see one anywhere else I looked, so I had to get one off the net). So, if I win that I will have my first new shave. I'm excited. My only question is, how will I know when I find the perfect combination of razor, blades, creams etc.? I mean...

We didnt trade but CMur12 (Murray) was nice enough to send me a Gillette DE razor, and 4 different kinds of blades and shaving soap, without asking for anything back.

So, yeah, Murry is awesome. :D
