George Sodini, the men suspected of shooting three women dead in a Pennsylvania gym was studious and very quiet, according to a women in a self-help seminar he attended.

Erin Micklow, 20, a model and an actress who was hired last year to work at a self-seminar that Sodini attended on how to date women, described him as the most studious in the workshops.

 “He was really, really quiet, he took a lot of notes,” said Erin Micklow.

George didn't seem like a bad person, she said. He was there for self improvement.

The three-day, eight-hour seminars were run by author and self-described dating expert R. Don Steele. They were designed so that men could pick our brains about what women like, said Micklow, adding that many of the attendees came from across the country because they were nervous about meeting women.

By the end of the workshops, Micklow said a lot of the guys had loosened up, but George was pretty much just as nervous.

George Sodini, 48, opened fire at a LA Fitness center outside Pittsburgh two days ago. Heidi Overmier, 46, of Carnegie, Pennsylvania; Elizabeth Gannon, 49, of Pittsburgh; and Jody Billingsley, 38, of Mount Lebanon, died in the shootings.
