Guys, please accept my apology.  I’m the real Michael Riley. My alter ego, ‘Gonzalo’ (the weird looking cartoon in the infographic above), has taken over this page, the sidebar, and my most popular post to date How To Be A High Value Man.

I swear like a trooper, but this guy is out of control!

But don’t worry, his days are numbered.  I have a plan to get rid of him for good!

I need your help though.

Here’s what I need you to do: I’m secretly putting together a ‘Death To Gonzalo’ page. When it’s finished I need you to head over there and write ‘Death To Gonzalo’ in the comments.  If we get 100 comments ‘Gonzalo’ dies!

I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, here’s the real ‘About Me’ page.

I started this blog early 2016 to give men the resources and tools to become better with women and relationships, and be a total badass in all areas of life.  More importantly I want to pass on to the next generation of men the benefits of masculinity and what it means to be a man.  My mantra is kick ass, have fun, swear a lot (not as much as ‘Gonzalo’ the swine!), and enjoy the process.

Some will like what I do; some will hate it.  That’s fine with me. I’m not here to please anyone but myself. I do what feels right, not for approval.

This is what “How To Not Give A Fuck” means to me.


How To Communicate Effectively With Women So You Score Every Time is the best place to start to become better with women and relationships.  Remember he who hesitates masturbates, so get reading now.
