On April 15, 2009 Meredith Goldstein said she was “horrified” to report, in the Boston Globe, that Love Systems flat out works. Goldstein claimed she was “forced” to report the truth after being exposed to two nights of witnessing the lights-out approach the Love Systems instructors took with attracting and closing several beautiful women...
Two weeks later, the controversy still rages. The story so far:
The Boston Globe’sdating and relationship columnist Meredith Goldstein attends a PUA bootcamp and admits that Love Systems works.
In her article she admits that the Love Systems students (guys like yourself) USED WHAT THEY LEARNED FROM LOVE SYSTEMS TO ATTRACT AND SEDUCE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN.
Before I get to the next step in the drama, let’s fill in the background.
A few years ago, we made the bold claim that we had cracked the code for average guys to attract beautiful women.
(You see average-looking guys with hot women all the time, so obviously it’s possible. We just needed to figure out how.)
Well, when you make a claim like that, people want you to back it up. So we did:
We sent a former student (at the time a junior instructor by the name of Cajun; he’s since been promoted) to compete on the 2007 season of Keys to the VIP, which measures how good you are at picking up hot women. Of course, Cajun won.
All new routines. There’s no overlap between Volume 1 and Volume 2. I use both.
A guide to each routine. Every routine is introduced with expert advice about when and when not to use it, different variations, and great comebacks to use for the most common responses.
A full chapter with new openers – never wonder “what do I say?” when you want to approach a woman, group of women, or even mixed groups (women with men with them).
A whole chapter for each stage of the Emotional Progression Model, including all-new Attraction Routines, Qualification Routines, and Comfort Routines.
A bonus chapter with phone and text game routines – edited by Braddock, the master of phone and text game.
An additional chapter featuring Day Game routines – edited by Soul, the lead instructor for Love Systems Day Game.
That’s how we originally thought of the book. But then when this all started, we decided we were including a whole bunch of extra stuff – stuff we planned to save for future products because it was so dynamite. Instead, we wanted it to be part of our official response:
The Love Systems Triad Model in its entirety. We were going to wait for Magic Bullets 2.0 for that, but not anymore. We lay out, for the first time, every step of the secret Love Systems approach. And you benefit.
Turning things sexual. All of those secret techniques like “seeding” and “sexual framing” that turn cold approaches and “let’s just be friends” into same-night lays and sexual relationships.
Advanced Attraction game, using both “state-based” and “intrigue-based” routines, with dozens of examples of both.
Anyway, you don’t need me to talk about it; you can check it out for yourself.
More interesting is why this makes people so mad. I’m not sure, but I’ll take a guess. Here are a couple quotes from the Boston Globe article:
“The men I interviewed spoke of wanting power in social situations.”
“Lots of people [learn Love Systems]. Normal people. The guys who attended the seminar in Boston were unsettlingly normal, men you probably know or work with. Most were 30-somethings in business jobs. They weren't ugly. They seemed nice enough.”
What’s the unspoken message here?
"Nice guys" aren’t supposed to be seducers.
If "nice guys" are out dating and attracting beautiful women, they won’t have as much time to be at these women’s beck and call.
"Nice guys" should give lots of compliments and attention but bow out gracefully when a celebrity or a “natural” shows up.
"Nice guys" should be the shoulders to cry on, the platonic dates when her lover is busy, or the owners of the credit cards that pay for her fun.
And what’s wrong with wanting more power in social situations, anyway?
Do you want more power in social situations? Is Love Systems ruining society by giving you the power to succeed with women?
Do you want the power to CHOOSE who you date instead of waiting for someone (usually not the girl you wanted) to show interest in you?
Do you want the power to approach any woman in any situation to explore a romantic or sexual interest?
Every women’s magazine is full of dating tips and advice. (Women teaching this to other women is fine. But, men teaching this to other men is horrifying.) Do you want to have the same social power that women do?
Do you want to know what women ACTUALLY respond to, or is everything going just fine doing what women SAY they respond to.
Anyway. Controversy doesn’t settle anything.
Both Love Systems and the Boston Globe agree that Love Systems works. But only YOU can decide whether what we’re doing is “fair” or “horrifying.”
