Get the best of Improve Your Social Skills
I wrote Improve Your Social Skills because I believe everyone deserves good friends.

I pour hundreds of hours into this site every year to make sure that it's as good as possible -- because my advice has real-world impact. I know that people depend on Improve Your Social Skills to help them escape loneliness, combat anxiety, and find the connections they're yearning for.

It's not about the money for me. It's about the emails I get where people say things like "Because of your guide, I asked a girl on a date for the first time ever" or "Because of your guide, I've decided to try therapy again" or "Because of your guide, I don't feel lost in conversation anymore."

That being said, I do make money from this site -- and the money I make allows me to spend time on the site. I'm in graduate school right now, and I need some kind of income to make ends meet (tuition isn't cheap!) Earning money from the site means that I can spend my free time working on the site instead of putting in hours at a coffee shop.


Because of this, I have the site set up on a membership model. About half of the content is totally free, while half of the content requires a paid membership. If you like the free content, becoming a member gives you the chance to both support the site and unlock more content.

Membership is $5, although if you'd like to support the site, you can pay more (by "support the site" I mean "Help me pay rent"). A lot of other social skills sites charge $30 or more for access, but I want as many people as possible reading my stuff, because I want as many people as possible to benefit.

If you can't afford even $5, you can get a free "Pay It Forward" membership in exchange for volunteering to do a good deed.

Membership Questions

Got questions? I've got answers.

If you sign up for a membership, you're billed once and that's it. If you want to renew your membership after one year, you can come back to this page and sign up again.

Payments are handled through Paypal, so everything is 100% safe and secure. I won't spam you or sell your personal information. If you sign up for my newsletter you'll get a few emails a year but you can opt-out any time (and the newsletter is optional anyhow.)

Read the free guide! If that advice works for you, the advice in my paid section will work for you too.
Not much!

Buying a membership and buying my guide on Amazon get you access to the exact same content. It's mainly a question of which format is more convenient for you. If you'd rather download the guide to your Kindle and read it on the go, then Kindle is the right choice. If you'd rather read my guide on my site, a membership is the right choice. If you'd rather listen to the audiobook version of my guide then you should grab it on Audible.

If you don't have a preference at all, I will note that Amazon takes a 30% cut of my Kindle sales, while Paypal takes about 3% of my sales from this site. So all else being equal, I do prefer if you buy a membership 🙂

Not much!
If you pay $5, you can read everything on the site for one year.
If you pay $15, you can read everything on the site for one year, and you don't see Adsense ads.
If you pay $25, you can read everything on the site forever, without any Adsense ads.

Mainly, paying more than $5 is a way for you to support the site. But you get some nice bonuses too

You can always buy another membership, or buy my guide on Kindle or audiobook. Or you can sign up for social skills coaching, or write a review of my guide on the Kindle store.

That being said, if you're feeling really generous, there are charities that need your money much more than I do. I'm pretty fond of a group called Love Wins that do awesome work among the homeless, and they always need support. So if you've already purchased a membership and you're feeling generous, I encourage you to give to Love Wins or another charity (although you could always buy another membership too!)
