I'm not losing at 10NL. Over 1k hands and 2 buy-ins up (so I'm not winning it either). Do you really think I should go down to 2NL and work out some weaknesses there, or stay here and see if I can improve at this level? I'm here to learn, and I don't mind taking a step back in order to go forward if necessary.
That's a good attitude, ego will only hurt in poker. Think of it this way : Your mistakes are going to cost you far more in 10nl than in 2nl. The math says 5 times more, but in reality it's probably at least 10 times more in $ terms because 2nl players are much worse than 10nl ones.
1k hands is absolutely nothing as far as sample goes, you can start to draw conclusions about win-rate after 50k hands at least, no sooner. I do believe you are playing a losing game, just by seeing you limp, which you should never ever do, so I'm sure you have lots of stuff to improve on first.
