Comment I made on krauserpua.com in response to some guy complaining about 5/10 males having bad luck:
If you want to be good at game long term you must raise your own SMV. A 5/10 male has no business learning game before getting himself sorted. Game isn’t this magical “hack” that 5/10 faggots can use to start banging high quality YHT girls.
If you’re 5/10 and care about looks, fix them. If your education is lacking and you have no worldly experience, get started on remedying that. You’re fat? Lose weight. Skinny? Start training. Dumb? Ugly? Ugly usually has to do with either being fat and out of shape plus poor grooming. Very very few men are actually facially ugly enough for it to be a dealbreaker — and even then you can get invisalign, cosmetic surgery, etc etc.
Unless you’re a total 5’1″ manlet you shouldn’t worry too much about height.
My point is that good game is aimed at helping already high value men. Nick graduated from a top school and worked at an investment bank — he was successful. Mystery was tall and good looking. Steve was also good looking. Yad youor whoever the fat out of shape DG guy is has basically no superior traits, and reading through Nick’s archive his results align perfectly with that. He becomes a girl’s gay best friend.
Truth is the majority of men aren’t suited for daygams. I’m reminded of this joke of a video, showing the sorts the commercial PUAs prey on:
As for me? I spent my early to mid twenties developing a location independent, passive income stream. I’m tall and good looking, but even so I plopped down $10k to get invisalign at 23. I take care of my skin, take care of my fashion, have good style, and train to look like one of those physique competitors. I’m inherently high value outside of game, and so getting started last summer I never felt like I was cheating anyone or being dishonest — it was just the final small addition to my life once everything else was settled.
