You might read this title and wonder to yourself: “What on earth has improving my financial status got to do with dating?” Or maybe not, maybe the importance of this is more clear to you than anything else you’ve seen on this site.

That’s a matter of perspective, because I want to make it very clear that I’m not suggesting you work on making more money so that you can use your wealth to entice people to sleep with you because at the end of the day everybody is just a shallow, greedy jerk.

Because while there are definitely those kinds of people out there, money is an essential to all of us and something we have to focus on. And this is Major League dating, so I’m operating under the assumption that you’re in it for the long haul.

You want to up your dating game because you want a partner. Love, comfort, companionship, all important things in a stable relationship, but so is financial security. No matter how in love you are, your lives and your future will be at a stand still if you can’t support each other.

If you aren’t careful with your money and aren’t displaying an ability to take care of yourself financially, potential partners will question the possibility of a stable future with you. So let’s take a look at a few ways to effortlessly improve your financial status.

1. Automated Saving

10 ways to improve your financial status automated savings

Everybody should have a savings account that isn’t their primary bank account. It’s an investment in your future, something that will slowly build up over time so that you can have a nest egg when you need it.

And the best way to build a savings account is to have an automated set up. Basically, a portion of your income every single month will automatically be transferred into the account without you having to do anything.

It can be hard to actively transfer money from your personal account into a savings account, but this way it will never be in your personal account anyway and so you don’t have to do anything. You’ll never see it in your personal account so you won’t miss it.

2. Micro-Savings

10 ways to improve your financial status automated micro savings

The term ‘micro-savings’ probably doesn’t sound like something that’s going to make a huge difference in your finances, but don’t let it’s small-sounding name distract you from its value to your bank account.

Micro-savings are an automated process through which any payment you make with your card will be rounded up to the nearest dollar, with the balance being directly sent to a savings account. Understand?

Basically if you buy something that costs $5.95, you will spend that much on the purchase and then 5c will be transferred to your savings account. Obviously it’s only a little bit at a time, but you’re buying stuff on a daily basis so it will add up.

Not every bank allows this, so you might have to shop around to find one that does. There are also certain apps which do a similar thing.

3. Investments

10 ways to improve your financial status automated investments

On the surface, investments are a bit like micro-savings in the sense that they don’t really sound like something that can actually save you any money in the long run. It basically feels like you’re giving your money away.

Which of course you are, but if you do it right this should eventually lead to a strong return on investment (ROI). Investing is a science, it’s not about buying shares in the top companies and expecting the money to roll in, it’s about analyzing the market and predicting the trends.

It’s not magic, it’s not clairvoyance, it’s about historical movements and pattern recognition. At the beginning of your investing career, it might be wise to just look out for companies which offer dividends.

These are a share of the profits regardless of whether or not the stocks rise or fall so it’s basically a guaranteed income every month.

4. Declutter

10 ways to improve your financial status automated declutter

You should think about decluttering anyway if you’re trying to find a partner that you can have a future with. No one wants to walk into a house that’s packed with old, unused stuff and get a terrifying glimpse into what awaits them if they move forward with this hoarder.

But as well as that, it can be a good way to make some extra money because you probably have a lot of stuff that you can sell. Just because you’re not using it doesn’t mean that no one will use it. You could host a yard sale, or just use the internet.

There’s no shortage of online marketplaces where you can sell things second hand. Anything from clothes, books, kitchen appliances, trinkets, seriously have a look around your place, you’ll probably find a ton of stuff you haven’t used in years. Sell it all!

5. Buy Second-Hand Stuff

10 ways to improve your financial status buy second hand

In a similar way, you could also start buying as much of your stuff second-hand as you can. We all like new stuff, but the appeal of that is pretty superficial when you think about it. What matters is the function.

We spend so much money on clothes and we adore new clothes, but really, they’re only new the first couple of times you wear them. So if you always wanted to wear new clothes, you’d have to be buying stuff every day.

A new car is so expensive, but even one that’s been driven only a couple of times will cost so much less. There really are a number of different things that we generally buy brand new that really don’t need to be new. Take advantage of second-hand buying, it’s worth it.

6. Learn to Negotiate

10 ways to improve your financial status negotiate

Negotiation is not always going to come in useful, but for when it does it can save you an awful lot of money. It’s a valuable skill to have for bigger purchases like cars and homes, you’re not going to be doing it every day but it’s still worth learning.

Some people think that this is a little shady, but in truth, you’re really just trying to make sure that you’re getting the best deal. The goal is not to cheat anyone out of money, it’s to make sure you’re not being cheated.

Negotiation is not about being smooth-talking or witty or anything like the movies might imply, the real secrets to it are things like research and listening. So work on this skill because it could save you a lot, but don’t start practicing it when you’re buying groceries.

7. Seek Out Discounts

10 ways to improve your financial status discounts

Now again, this is not something that you can consistently guarantee success with because they’re not always going to be discounts, but they are a thing and if you do your research you can take advantage of them.

Discounts come in many different forms, some of which you probably aren’t applicable for, but some of which you most definitely will be. Familiarise yourself with these different kinds and then see which ones apply to your life and your location.

If you know what you’re doing you can probably cut a huge amount of your spending just by making avail of discounted products and services.

8. Time Purchases

10 ways to improve your financial status time purchases

Similar approach here, in addition to discounts, sales are also something which are common and which can be reliable. The difference here is that the discounts are usually conditional whereas sales can be taken advantage of by everyone.

This won’t apply for anything which there’s an urgency too, or when you’re buying groceries or anything like that, but most of the purchases you make will probably be on sale at some point, and if you can, you should try and time them.

This will help you to regulate spending too because it will force you to wait until certain things you think you want are on sale and you might realize that you don’t actually want them at all which will save you some money too.

9. Exercise Restraint

10 ways to improve your financial status exercise restraint

What this boils down to is that you shouldn’t spend money on too much of the stuff that you don’t actually need. As much as the temptation is there, and we’ve all given into it on numerous occasions, you need to have some restraint.

Of course, leisure is important. And when you’re planning out a budget for yourself you should include a certain amount every month for leisure. But be strict with yourself and stick to that budget. Self-control is such a valuable skill.

If your friends are going out for drinks but you’ve expended your leisure budget, then you’re not going out for drinks. Learn the value of staying in, being by yourself can be such a joy if you optimize that alone time.

10. Cut Subscriptions

10 ways to improve your financial status cancel subscriptions

So many of us have money coming out of our bank accounts every month that we are entirely unaware of because it doesn’t seem like it’s too much at a time. $5 disappears one day, you’re not going to notice, another $5 a week later, seems like nothing.

This is because we all subscribe to things that we think we’re interested enough in to justify constantly spending money on and then we forget about them. And the amount of money you’re losing as a consequence adds up.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t subscribe to anything, but you should take note of what you actually use. Most people are subscribed to Spotify and that’s a great service, but maybe you never actually use it.

Go through your subscriptions and see which ones you can stand to lose, and then get rid of them.

I can’t guarantee that this is going to help you find a date as such, but what it will do is set you up nicely for when you are with someone that you want to settle down with. Having financial security will be a weight off your mind and it will make your future so much clearer.

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

I just completed the Audiobook 99 Bad Boy Traits and I must say the following: I have heard inspirational talks by Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, etc and they were good but your book 99 Bad Boy Traits has the been the most important to me and my life. It is like the father/son talk I never got when I was young. It empowers me to be just who I am. The hard work will pay off. You rock my brother.

Craig

I just wanted to tell you thanks for your products. You’ve really helped me start to understand the issues my lack of emotional control has created with women, and in my life as a whole. I just finished 72 Ways and previously read 99 Bad Boy Traits. I’m coming off of a messy divorce a couple months ago, and also a break up with a different woman who I truly want to be with. Because of my lack of emotional control surrounding my divorce, I pushed her away. Thanks to the help of your books, I see the mistakes I made in my marriage and with the woman I want to be with. Right now I’m focused on myself, and your books really help me to stay on that path, rather than repeating the needy, overly emotional, negative patterns I was in. I’m giving her space with the acceptance that she might not come back around. If you have any further advice for me I’d appreciate it, and thanks so much again!

Josiah

Valuable Knowledge. Very interesting points throughout this book. A good reminder for those who already know about being a ‘bad boy’ and new knowledge for those who don’t. Highly recommended.

T.P.

All of this advice is very true, but also very hard to do. great book, great advice.

Kevin

It all just makes sense. This will uplift you and help give you the patience and confidence that you’re gonna need to get your girlfriend back. I am facing the struggle right now and this book is what’s helping me to not make all the mistakes that I would have had I not listened to it. I’m eager to follow his methods with the hope of one day redeveloping a relationship with a woman I love dearly. And if that doesn’t happen, then I’ve at least learned what it takes to get it right next time. 5 solid stars from me.

J

Best emails dude! So good! I’ve tried all this and it’s so true it works like a charm!

Eye opening! My husband and I are doing some soul searching making drastic changes in our lives.

I have been enjoying your videos and your blog posts. I have to say that you are truly different from any other PUA shit I have ever come across. I feel like that PUA stuff ruins your true Authentic self. Thanks.

Guarav

Thank you for the advice Marc. I’m a great fan of you and your work. I find your work really good and effective. Keep it up.

Johnny

A very awesome book! I don't write many reviews but felt I had to. So much in under 300 pages. I have read thousands of books, hundreds of hours of audio. I bought the audio but will also purchase the book. I found at least one great piece of wisdom that will be worth a ton!

Roger

I did what you told me to stay cool and replying her message without neediness, after 3 days breaking up, she wants to be my girlfriend again, and we finally get together again. Thanks for that Marc.

Del

If there was ever something men needed to learn to improve each and every day, this is it. A must have for men growing and becoming stronger mentally.

R.S.

Hey bro. I appreciate you. You are the truth! I can’t believe how spot on your your book is! I’m focused and 2x ore productive. That’s dramatic! In 10 days, I became a partner at my company instead of an employee, 10x my income overnight, I cut 40% wasted time and efforts, and caused a backup at the company because the employees I’m helping are now overproducing. Now, we need to upgrade the system to support in increased productivity! I feel like I’ve been inducted into a secret society of “people who just get it”. I thought I had an unfair advantage before… Now I’m certain! I honestly feel guilty for owning this book because not a single MF’er I know is willing to do what it takes to get their life and act together. You ignited me into RAPID and AGGRESSIVE IMPLEMENTATION! I was like dynamite and this book lit my fuse. It unleashed all of the stored potential through application of knowledge and made an impact.

Joe

I’ve read a lot of pickup stuff online and you’re one of the only coaches who gives real applicable advice. Thanks for the help

NielExcellent!

Finished it in one session. This book is mandatory read for us men to live up to our greatest potential.

Faizan

I really have to say WOW for your work, amazing indeed man. Your articles are fab and have changed the way i look at women now.

Gerald

I liked how the fundamentals were solid and sound and I think that a book like this is useful even for people familiar with the predecessors who inspired the content. It’s still great information and men need to remember it and learn it. One thing reaches me, another may reach you. This may be the book that you need.

Kenneth J.

Hey bro, I just want to thank you personally for your book. I listen to it everyday and keeps my mind in the right place. Your blunt and to the point. It's helping me grow my business and stay focused on what really matters. I love everything you have in it. I'm finding out myself that buying stuff is an endless road and you really helped me ponder on the meaning behind all that. So many awesome things in your book. I have read hundreds of books over the last few years and yours is the gem. I'm on my fifth time through it and still just as impactful as the first. From all the books, you're the only one I've felt inspired enough to send a personal message too. Most books get you pumped up temporary but then they have no practical application for life. Yours does. It's the real deal. I'm selling my car and I get the things you hit on. Hope we can meet in person one day. Thanks again and just want you to know you're changing my life. Buying stuff is useless. Like a rock. I love it man. And I just experienced my own thing that validates everything I've been listening to in your book. Anyway, I could go on and on but I'll stop here. Much success to you.

Paul

Hey Marc. I just finished reading your book How To Quit Being A Loser With Women. WOW! Truly amazing! I have read many books and theories on this subject and have watched countless amounts of videos from authors such as Brent Smith, Corey Wayne, DOC Love, RSD and many more. Your book is by far the best out of all of them. It really simplifies everything step by step and gets to the point. Very easy to read. Short and sweet, something I can read at least once a week to keep me motivated. Thanks dude!
