What is social value?

Everybody wants what everybody else wants. The value of anything rises according to how much people want it.

Your popularity inflates your desirability, and your desirability inflates your social value. That’s why it’s so important for your ex to see you getting out and about, and leading a busy social life. Posting pictures on social media of men enjoying your company is great; but don’t make it look as if you have a new boyfriend.

Go for subtle suggestion. Make sure your ex sees you having fun and making new friends. You could meet someone new at any time. Give him a sense of urgency; a sense that he could lose you for good.
