It’s no secret that we’re not fans of the whole PUA community. I think a lot of it is sleazy and downright manipulative. Yes, I learned this PUA stuff too in the beginning and it definitely worked but it doesn’t make you happy. Why you ask? Because you’re doing things that aren’t really you. You’re doing all this game playing that’s actually pretty manipulative.
This is something that most guys know but still it happens a lot. You might not even know that neediness is hurting your dating or even responsible for some of your relationships ending, I know I didn’t always know that. I thought of myself as very independent and non-needy. And what reinforced that was that in casual dating I was. Right until it got serious, then the neediness would appear without even realizing it. It took me about five relationships to finally realize that neediness was an underlying problem that I wasn’t being honest with myself about. So if I can save you guys some of the same problems or at least shorten the time it takes you to realize it, then it’s worth writing about.

I was watching this rom com(for those not in the know, it’s short for romantic comedy) “Play It Cool” with two of my girl-friends. It was a pretty entertaining movie even though it still followed the same clichés that most Rom-Coms follow, which is guy and girl meet, there’s some kind of obstacle, they somehow overcome that with the “love conquers all” spiel and then they end up happily ever after. Seen it a million times. If I sound cynical, I’m not trying to. I think love is a beautiful thing and one of the great things in our lives, but I also think there’s a lot of misconceptions and that it gets portrayed unrealistically.

What’s a rich life look like to you? This is something that’s really important for everyone to figure out. If you have a vision for what you want your life to look like then you’ll be more likely to stay on course through the ups and down that will inevitably happen. Just daily motivation isn’t enough. Watching Rocky or getting hyped up every day isn’t going to last long term, although watching Rocky is always a good idea. You need something pulling you forward, your vision can do that for you. A rich life can be very different for everyone and likely will keep changing throughout your life, and that’s ok. [Read more…] about What’s a Rich Life Look Like to You
Why don’t they teach useful things in college like relationships, how to communicate with people, how to have amazing sex for both of you, or how to date? College should be about education and self development but there’s really not much self development. I know I learned more only after getting my M.B.A than when I was actually in school. Most of my education has been through reading and a lot of trial and error. This is what inspired me to want to create something to share my experiences and things I’ve learned. We don’t want to create some other PUA training here, I actually hate that term or any of the terms so called PUA’s use. Honestly there’s so much PUA stuff out there that you can find it everywhere. There’s lots of lines, routines, quick fixes that will get you laid if that’s all you’re looking for. If you’re just looking to get laid then this isn’t the place for you.
