Mark (Forum ADMIN), Scotty and I have talked about this topic a lot.
If you Improve Your "Value", Will You Get Laid Significantly More?
This is interesting timing, the topic of "Self-Improvement = Get Laid," was one that I was going to cover in the past week until I got hit with an onslaught of Martial Arts discussions that I wanted to get up on the blog ASAP. The more people we have around here that can beat the shit out of people, the better. Martial Arts, arguably, is the opposite of "I Hope She Likes Me" Mainstream PUA.
Our new friends over at Danger & Play beat us to it, so I feel it appropriate to encourage you to check their write up on the subject-"Is Krauser Right about Value and Cold Approaching?"
D&P is actually responding to a tweet from Krauser- (I had not seen Krauser's blog until 45 minutes ago, I still don't know a lot of these guys)
