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:

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:
So, we’re not new to the whole skeptical-journalist-goes-to-Love-Systems-and-is-blown-away-by-how-well-it-works thing.
What IS different this time around is that now we have female columnists who are “horrified” by Love Systems.
Love Systems students are happy. The women they are with are happy. The opinion columnists aren’t.
What’s REALLY going on here...
Let’s call a spade a spade. Some women don’t like the Love Systems Routines Manual and don’t think we should be publishing it.
Well, here’s our response:
It’s like they came into our kitchen and told us that our dishes were too spicy. And we looked them in the eye and dumped a giant bowl of hot peppers in the pot.
And that’s why everyone is freaking out – check out what’s in the Routines Manual:
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:
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?
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.”
