I am Ken Hoinsky aka TofuTofu. I am the author of a book on how to get awesome with women that started as posts here on reddit. AMA!
My name is Ken Hoinsky. I've been posting here on reddit for the past three years. I live-blogged my story about trying to build a social circle in a new city. I started in Tokyo, spent a year in San Francisco, and ended up in Connecticut. I also spent ten years of my life living in New York City.
I spent the past two years as a moderator on /r/seduction volunteering my time to teach redditors how to get better with women. I was very unhappy with the state of dating advice. It's mostly meaningless self-help platitudes or cleverly-disguised misogyny without much in between
I took it upon myself to write a new guide to rectify this problem. I started posting a step-by-step method on reddit last year. I called it Above The Game. You can read part 1 here.
This took on a life of its own and eventually I made the decision to publish it as a full-length book. I launched a Kickstarter to fund the production costs. I've raised over 500% of my goal and there are still 3 days left.
The Daily Dot also interviewed me about the book.
Ask me anything about getting better with women, publishing a book, running a Kickstarter, Japan, SF, NYC, startups, fansubbing, working in the anime industry, being an executive recruiter, anything at all!
