The Tao of Badass Attraction System Review

First of all understand The Tao of Badass attraction system is nothing at all to do with being a “Badass“.

Taking the peculiar (and somewhat off-putting) name aside, The Tao of Badass is a well researched and totally gripping e-book and video course by the very well known Joshua Pellicer (If you do’t know who Joshua Pellicer is, he’s regularly on The Today Show, The NY Daily News and the NY Press, on AOL News and many other high profile soapboxes. He’s had a #1 Ranked documentary piece about him on Current TV and he founded and hosted a show on Sirius XM Radio teaching guys how to meet girls (on Maxim Radio).

It’s safe to say that Joshua knows dating and attraction inside out.

The Tao Of Badass is not simply an ebook, but a comprehensive skills and confidence boosting system aimed at both single men looking to date and men who are actively dating.

The Tao Of Badass system takes two forms:

1. Advanced Dating Training Materials
2. Member’s Only Community

In short, Tao Of Badass is solid training and a continuous support system rolled into one.

.

Founder Joshua made a 50 minute detailed webinar explaining the system – normally only available to subscribers but he’s allowed Dating Consumer link to it here>>> VIEW WEBINAR

.

Customers get The Tao Of Badass book, 4 bonus books, 6 hours of the author’s unabridged commentary and 2 hours of video from a sold-out VIP training bootcamp, plus of course access to the Tao of Badass community.

The community gives students the ability to interact with Josh during their journey and to the ability to communicate with each other.

With our review copy we also received several additional supplements, which are given out occasionally on the website.

Their homepage gives away a free video discussing:

* The “chasing” mistake – why girls can spot “neediness” from a mile away (and how to eliminate it forever) …
* The “drink test” – the mistake nearly every guy makes when a girl asks him to buy a drink (hint: it’s NOT a matter of saying yes or no!
* The “faking” it mistake we all make when we’re trying to be “cool” (you’ll discover why and how this is practically like ASKING a girl to reject you!)
* The #1 body language mistake that says “I’m not sexually confident” …

Watch the video

From this you will glimpse just the tip of the iceberg that is the huge TAO course and there is a LOT of content.

EDIT MARCH 2013: The Tao Of Badass website has just been fully revamped for 2013 having moved from the traditional long advertorial type page to a large and informative site offering browsers lots of free information, articles and videos – without the need to sign up for anything. This is certainly something other companies in the dating skills marketplace could do, as it allows browsers to check out the style and content of the course without joining.

Due to the number of requests we are getting for an in-depth review of The Tao Of Badass since the course has been revamped and expanded we should be updating the above within the next few weeks.

Parship.com Overview

Parship.com was the UK’s first compatibility-based online dating service, specifically for people who are looking to form a lasting relationship. One of Europe’s largest and most successful serious online dating service, Parship.com now has nearly two million members – predominantly affluent, educated men and women between 28 and 55 years old.

Parship.com initially launched the what was then a pioneering service in Germany on Valentine’s Day 2001, leading the way in Europe as the first online dating service to offer a scientific compatibility test to match people for a long-term relationship.

Parship.com is now established as the leading European service for single men and women who want to make a serious commitment, with 150 employees working to bring people together. According to the Parship website, 38 percent of their Premium Members report that they have found love with PARSHIP’s help.

To help ensure that their members are genuine people in search of a serious relationship, the parship customer services team personally checks all member profiles and any text or photo that a member adds to his or her profile has to be approved before it goes live on the site, dramatically cutting down on the number of false profiles and scammers currently plaguing the on-line dating marketplace.

The unique scientific “PARSHIP Principle®”, which matches people by compatibility, is based on more than 30 years of research into relationships, conducted by Professor Hugo Schmale of Hamburg University. With a specialist international team of 16 psychologists constantly refining and updating the matching process, when you take the parship.com test, you produce a personality profile which enables the service to recommend potential partners to you. These are people with whom you stand to be genuinely compatible, since you complement each other through a particular balance of similarities and differences.

MatchAffinity.com Overview

MatchAffinity.com is an online dating and relationship service brought to you by Match, one of the World’s best-known brands in love and relationships.

How MatchAffinity.com works, is that the program suggests compatible matches for you based on the results of your in-depth affinity questionnaire. This free questionnaire looks at your values, opinions, personality and expectations, and the results produce a personality report which helps you better understand yourself and how of course how others may see you.

The answers you give when filling in the affinity questionnaire will allow MatchAffinity to suggest compatible matches for you. For every member listed on your selected matches list, they will provide a detailed compatibility report allowing you to see the ways in which you are well suited – and helpfully the areas where you may differ.

Following receipt of your compatibility partners list, when you see someone you’d like to get to know, you can send them a message.

Unusually for a free dating service, you are able to send a first message to each member at no cost – however if you wish to send more than this message a range of premium subscription options are available.

All messages are exchanged on their secure, internal system meaning that if you do not wish to give someone your e-mail or contact details, you don’t have to.

DatingDirect.com Overview

DatingDirect.com is one of very largest UK on-line dating sites, with successful additional sites covering much of Europe and further afield. With in excess of 60,000 people online at any given time, your chances of meeting a partner are fairly good – simply from a numbers point of view – and members database is shared with Match.com, further increasing your chances of finding a compatible mate.

Dating Direct is currently offering free registration and premium membership can cost just over £10 per month.

DatingDirect.com unusually offers members and prospective members a telephone support and customer services line and even gives the ability to cancel a subscription online (although we hear that this can on occasion be unreliable – it pays to e-mail or telephone to confirm).

For consumers unwilling or unhappy to enter into a recurring billing agreement – DatingDirect.com accepts payment by cheque, which gives an extra layer of control in the event of cancellation.

Alexa Rank: 768,815

Product Genre: Self Help / Dating Skills / Online Dating Skills
Product Type: e-course / e-book

The Real Women Real Love Guide to Fearless Dating – Overview

The Real Woman Real Love Guide to Fearless Dating is the latest e-course from Amy Waterman, the highly respected author of How to Be Irresistible to Men, Connect and Commit and Save My Marriage Today

The somewhat lengthy title very accurately describes the book – a self help program aimed principally at the more experienced woman who’s been through enough to be carrying a certain amount of emotional baggage (although it would also be very useful to anyone).

Through the program, you will learn to:

Give off the kind of good energy men crave.
Understand what goes through a man’s mind.
Regain your sense of personal power around men.
Feel in control, desirable, confident, and the star of your own romantic destiny
Weed out the flakes, jerks, and playboys.
Master the art of first impressions.
Try the ultimate “beauty cream.”
Say goodbye to nerves or anxiety in social situations.
Feel great about yourself,
Get excited about your love life!
De-code the secret signals that tell you, whether or not you should pursue a relationship.
What every man wishes you’d understand about him.
Know when to trust your feelings and when to be wary.
Deal with rejection or break-ups without getting hurt.
Discover the truth about bed buddies, bad boys, and playing hard to get.
Tackle the emotional baggage that you’ve accumulated over the years
Find new energy to motivate you in your search for love.
Never worry about what’s going to happen to you ever again.

The program is well written, punchy and to the point – getting to the meat of the facts without lengthy commentary – something unusual now in the world of e-publishing.

At the time of writing Amy is packaging a selection of free e-books with the course adding incredible value to the already well priced program. The free books are: The Secret to A Happy Relationship, Q&A with Amy Waterman, The Magic of Affirmations, and Dating Techniques eBook.

It would be even better if there was an option to receive the course printed – allowing for reading during a long soak in the bath, but you can’t have everything!

RichDating.me Overview

RichDating.me is an exclusive niche dating site aimed at the wealthy, with a secretive VIP Club – a club within the club – an “inner circle” of the super-rich.

We were unable to obtain a review pass for the VIP section of RichDating.me so will detail the regular section of the site.

RichDating.me is fairly minimalist in design and content where the outer “non-member” pages are concerned with a little text and some members photos – perhaps to build up the exclusive air of a members-only club and it does succeed in this. Unusually, there is little to hint at what’s to come or what features the site offers members.

Once inside as a free basic member, or a paid up premium member RichDating.me is actually a feature packed site with all the functionality you’d expect from a premium site.

Members seem to be professionals, entrepreneurs and obviously The Wealthy, with average incomes being somewhere between £50,000 and £200,000 (It makes us wonder what the VIP section holds!)

There seem to be a few “Gold Diggers” but on the whole much less than we’d expect within such an obviously affluent client base.

If you’re wealthy and want to date free from worries of a mercenary honey-trap, it’s likely RichDating.me would be a good place to start.

This reviewer sadly is neither wealthy or entrepreneurial!
