Id say that Im a bit of both. I do love the nostalgia of a brush and DE razor but I also do believe that a DE razor gives a better shave and can save you a bit of money if you dont get sucked into overbuying.
Mostly, Id say its trial and error. I tried a few barber shops before I found one and found a barber that I liked. I ended up going to a real, oldschool barber shop; not a mens' salon, which is what many of them are.

I wouldnt say your screwed, you just need to close your left eye. Im the same way and when I first started shooting clays, I was horrible at it because youre taught to keep both eyes open.
