There is a lot of talk about value.
Is it social proof, pre-selection, good looks or a sense of humour?
Well it depends.
But it boils down to two things.
Core Value: Having a working penis, the willingness and ability to use it (theoretically able to impregnate a woman).
Variable Value: Being able to navigate the (material and social world) in order to make the above happen.
Do you have a weapon and do you know how to use it?
