For those of you that are new to my blog, The Modern Savage, I thought it might be helpful to provide this post as a way of giving you some background information about me and the purpose of this blog.
Being a Seduction Artist
My name is Matt Savage and I am an aspiring seduction artist. When I say “seduction artist” please don’t jump to conclusions as my definition may be much different than what the general public thinks a seduction artist is. Here is what I aspire to be as a seduction artist:
- A man who loves women, loves all the different qualities that women posses and loves the challenge of attracting beautiful women.
- A man who knows what he wants in life, who is confident and who is not apologetic for his desires as a man.
- A man with a sense of integrity, honesty and compassion.
- A man who is romantic, articulate and empathetic
- A man who gives value to a relationship and not a man who takes value from it.
- A man who will always be in pursuit of improving himself for the better.
This is what I aspire to be and this is my journey.
In The Beginning
I am currently in my late twenties and have lead a good life. I’ve grown up in a loving family, have surrounded myself by many great friends and have been successful in both college and my career. There has only been one thing missing from my life, a girlfriend.
Meeting and talking to women have never been the problem. Throughout college I had come to befriend many women. The problem was that even though I had romantic feelings for many of these women, they always ended up as just friends.
For years I pursued women, in the hopes of eventually getting a girlfriend. I would go out to the bars all the time, thinking that it would be THE night to finally hook-up. All the nights ended up the same with me standing against the wall hoping a girl would talk to me. They never did. I’d end up walking home alone feeling sorry for myself, wondering what could possibly be wrong with me.
One night strikes me in particular. I was at a party with one of my buddies. This night I had actually become quite friendly with a girl that I had met. We were flirting the whole night and having a great time together. I thought, “finally, someone likes me”, but by the end of the night I found her making out with my buddy. She ended up going home with him that night and I…well, I went home and cried.
As you can imagine, this lead me on a downward spiral. At first there was depression but then it turned to anger. This anger was in the form of resentment towards women. How could they be so cruel? Why didn’t anyone want to be with a nice guy?
There is an old saying that goes something like this: you can’t really change until you’ve hit rock bottom. In regards to my dating life, this is what happened. I hit rock bottom. It was time to change.
The next day I began searching the Internet for advice on attracting women. I found a lot of information but most of it was absolute bullshit. There was a lot of advice with things like “buy her flowers and dinner” or “just be yourself.” I knew this stuff was crap advice because I had been doing these types of things for years with little success.
I did eventually stumble upon one website that really opened my eyes. The site was called Maniac High’s Pickup Guide. The information was so revolutionary to me that I voraciously read everything on the site. After that information was exhausted, I quickly moved on to other related sites, such as fastseduction.com. This lead me to buy the now famous book The Game by Neil Strauss in the spring of 2006. My eyes had been opened to the possibilities of seducing beautiful women.
Despite having the knowledge to attract and seduce women, I still wasn’t getting anywhere. The reason was because I wasn’t really applying the information as much as I should have. I was still scared.
Finally, during August 2006, I made it my goal to start approaching more women and applying my new found knowledge even if that meant being rejected time and again. This was truly the beginning of my journey.
About The Modern Savage Blog
As part of my journey to become a seduction artist I decided to start a blog to chronicle the events as they happen. The purpose for this was 1) to motivate me to stick with my goals and 2) to be able to review my actions, get advice from others, and use this information to continue refining my skills.
The posts I write in this blog are real in every sense. I promise that I will be honest with you on this long journey. I feel that many bloggers only reveal certain parts of themselves that put them in a good light. I’m not going to that. In this blog, you get the real me, from every triumph to every failure.
How Do You Fit In?
Though my writings will certainly provide some form of entertainment to you, I think the real benefit of reading this blog will be inspiration. Inspiration for the millions of men like me who are struggling to understand women. Inspiration for women to know that there are men out there who are trying to become REAL men. Inspiration for everyone with the hope that they can change their life for the better.
If this blog inspires you or if you simply enjoy reading it, then I ask that you consider supporting the journey, whether it be by commenting, giving your advice, emailing posts to friends, or simply adding me to your blogroll. Every little bit helps. Hopefully, other men like me will be inspired to become a better man.
I try to post at least two or three times a week. You can stay in touch with my latest adventures by Subscribing to The Modern Savage through a RSS reader, or by email newsletter here:

I hope that you enjoy reading my blog and I look forward to the long journey, whatever it may bring.
