I just want to state something for the record.
There are people out there who decry what I do, who call my practices manipulative and coldhearted. They think of me as someone unfeeling, cold, and calculating. They think that my naming someone as a target is derogatory, dishonest, and insulting, both in philosophy as well as in semantics -- as though I were simply playing someone for a sucker. As though this were about facades, egos, and materialism.
Let me say this much. I may be calculating, but I am far from coldhearted or unfeeling. I do what I do because I love love. I love being in love and I love making people feel in love. If I didn't have real feelings of attraction for whomever I choose to seduce, it wouldn't be worth the effort. Seduction is work.
And there is no bigger compliment from me than to be chosen as my target.
