What makes this relationship book unique?

It is very different because it focuses on natural attraction - on what women REALLY want - not what they claim they want or what men in general believe women want. But also because it incorporates men's and women's socialization and explains phenomenons such as why men think women are attracted to things such as money (yet money is a man-made invention that has not even existed very long) and why women "play hard to get" (a well-known phrase which amusingly reveals that women ARE easy but only pretend not to be).

What is the dating book about?

The book covers attraction, socialization, seduction, confidence, charm, responsibility, conversation and body language + a whole lot more that any heterosexual male who is less successful with women than he wants to be ought to know and master.

There are no other books similar in nature, most of them simply repeat conventional wisdom that does not work very well in reality because they focus on the wrong things from the beginning. Even the best dating books are about ACTING like an attractive man, not on how-to BECOME one. But the problem is if you go around acting like someone besides yourself, even if you do start getting girls, it is not really YOU who are getting them.

Tips and Tricks

  • Learn what women are attracted to and stop wasting your life away chasing things you don't need, e.g. if you think women want men with money or a car, ask yourself: how did men meet women before those things were invented?
  • Stop making up excuses to meet women, you do not need to light her cigarette or pretend to be lost to approach a woman!
  • Replace non-confident behavior that you hold on to under the disguise of "being nice" - the "good" behavior your mother taught you is how SHE wants to be treated, not what turns women on sexually.
  • Understand that women ARE easy, but a man must never let them FEEL so.
