Many of the guests that appear in his interview series also appear in his seminars and programs.Some critics regard "Cocky & Funny", Pagan/De Angelo's best known technique, as overrated, and some have suggested alternative methods like "Playful & Confident" ("P&C")."Mastery" was a DVD set on dating skills released in 2004 by David De Angelo of Double Your Dating.In early July 2009, this product was taken off the market.While building this business, De Angelo set out to build his skills at meeting women through a number of avenues, including seeking the counsel of "naturals" (men who are naturally good with women) and students of women such as Hypnotica (Eric Von Sydow) Steve Piccus, Dave Riker, Rick H, and as a protg of Ross Jeffries.During this period, De Angelo went by the on-line nickname "Sisonpyh" (hypnosis spelled backwards, invoking the NLP emphasis of Jeffries' teachings), and the offline handle "Brother Eben".
One of his beliefs is that being intellectual doesn't automatically equal success with women, but that such success can be acquired.
He is also the founder of a business company named The foundation for the Double Your Dating series is an ebook which claims to help men "demystify" much of what goes into attraction.
Following the ebook, De Angelo created further materials in the series, including a second ebook, as well as several ebooklets, seminars on DVDs and CDs covering various topics (notably the Advanced and Mastery series, as well as Meeting Women Online, Deep Inner Game, Power Sexuality, On Being a Man, Cocky Comedy and Body Language and several others), and the monthly Interviews with Dating Gurus CD subscription.
Since then, De Angelo has released many products aimed at helping men with dating, with titles such as the Advanced Dating series, 77 Laws of Success With Women and Dating, Deep Inner Game, and Meeting Women Online.
De Angelo claimed in July 2007 that he employs two hundred people, all working remotely, and that his various product lines (Double Your Dating, Catch Him & Keep Him, Get Altitude, Fire Your Wedding Planner, and others) now gross close to 20 million annually in sales.
Instead, he contends that "attraction isn't a choice" -- women cannot be bribed into choosing to feel attraction.
