I see a lot of advice here is “get social proof, it will increase your attractiveness with girls.” What the heck is social proof?

If girls love is fleeting, conditional, and transient, it’s based on what you can do for her and her needs today, how can “social proof” be anything of substance? Shouldn’t men be confident in their abilities, provide a service of value and have the girl chips fall where they may, rather than have girls love them because of genetics or luck or location?

Humans follow group think, so if everyone likes him and adores him, he must be ok. An actor could sleep with a hot actress every weekend, yet a surgeon could be alone Friday nights.

I think social proof just means you are “safe” for the girl, but it doesn’t mean you provide value.

Your thoughts please.

Simple. The actor has the spotlight and attention from the public. Most surgeon, in public, wouldn't. However, the surgeon WILL have social proof from where he works, medical confrences, university lectures, and if it's a teaching hospital; his students. Trust when I say, if a surgeon wants good pvssy, he will get it with four words... Hey, I'm Dr. Smith.

Doctors and actors just have higher status. Before social media social proof was basically being well adjusted socially, having confidence in you ability’s, and being a likeable person.

Now with social media more people are conserned with pushing there own brand. They go places and do things just to post it on social media. Hang out with people they don’t care about just to “get social proof”. Guys with 1000+ followers could be complete asses and people will still try and be buddy’s with him I t’s really pathetic and desperate but the way it is now. It’s really not something I’d be concerned with unless you in high school.

So if you want social proof. Make an instagram Snapchat etc. and start getting 1000+ followers. And bam you got social proof. Post pics of you at the club, in high end places, wearing and shopping at only the best.

Social proof is simply something that gives a person added value over everyone else. It can come in many forms. Knowledge, wealth, career position, accomplishments.

People are less skeptical of one with social proof. They seek those people out. The average person will let their guard down and be more willing to follow one with social proof.

Social proof provides the coattails average people want to ride upon to gain some recognition or benefits they otherwise don’t enjoy on their own.

If you’re a man who dates a lot of attractive women, a lot of men will want to associate with you so they can get a piece of your action (or they’ll just hate you). Women will want to know why other women are attracted to you (or they’ll just hate you). People will tell stories about you when you’re not around, raising the interest of people who never met this often talked about guy.

Your reputation precedes you. People know you before you even meet them. You have a magnetic quality that works even in your absence.

But it all boils down to what people want most.

Young people tend to want popularity, access, etc. Musicians, djs, VIP, get in the club for free...

Older people want power, prestige, connections, financial freedom, etc. Doctor, lawyer, CEO....

Some want a mix; high status and access. CEO VIP.

Possess what people want and you’ll have a social proof that draws a particular group of people to you.

I think too many people in this thread are confusing social proof with LMS.
They are not the same.

Doctors in America have a ton of social proof. Its like they are put on pedestals based simply on title. Their employees prop them up as well do their patients. Most people think they have the "best" doctor on the planet when they have nothing to base that on.

Engineers carry a lot of social proof in certain environments where technical expertise is required. In product manufacturing, the engineer is always the one people turn to to solve a problem. His word is gospel. There are technicians that might know more about how something works than the engineer who designed it, but at the end of the day the social proof is with the engineer. He has more value than the technician.

Please explain your interpretation as it could help many.

Social proof is seen through the public eye. It's how you're perceived amongst people you know and dont know. Most people with social proof have a magnetic personality.
I've seen rich people with social proof and I've seen low income people with social proof.
Ever seen an awkward doctor? I have!
More than I can count on my fingers.

I see people write actors in this thread. Why actors?
Have you seen how they behave outside of film? I guarantee you, you haven't!
Some celebrities are so high up on the fame chart that you can't even get close to them to find out how their personalities are.

When I see real social proof through professions, I see Stand-up Comedians, MMA Fighters, DJs, Singers, Radio Jockeys, and Politicians.
But even politicians can put on a fake appearance.

Status is a form of social proof.

Watch how a woman behaves when she knows she’s the only one in her group who is dating a doctor.

Watch how women who don’t like her behave.

Watch how she behaves toward the women who don’t like her.

Look at any FB page of women who are with well off men. It’s a huge pissing contest of look at me and my awesome life. She’s so lucky! She’s such a *****! Blah blah blah.

None of the above which has anything to do the woman herself being attracted to the high status man himself.

It’s all about benefits and how they want to be perceived by others.

That doesn't matter.

What matters to a girl is whether you make her tingly. What "value" does a jobless drug addict provide all the women he sleeps with?

Women are usually more attracted to men who are desired by other women. This is social proof. How successful are you with other women? How attractive are those women? It's that simple.

For details on how social proof is applied in marketing, read "Influence" by Robert Cialdini.

Girls get more attracted to a guy when they see others behaving in certain ways with him. That could be other girls smiling at him, or it could be guys following his lead.

The Mystery Method talks about it too. You don't have to be an actor or surgeon. If you're a poor janitor and a girl sees other girls chasing you or people following your lead, she will have an increased value perception of you.

Some people have social proof because of their LMS.

That doesn’t make sense.

So a medical doctor doesn’t know how to talk to women, but an actor can bed any hot actress, the actor has social proof but the doctor doesn’t?

Social proof has no value. It’s a human survival strategy. If other girls like him, there must be something about him, even though we don’t know what that thing about him is. We just follow others because we feel safer when we follow the herd and group think.
