16 Things I Realized About Washington DC In 2014

I took the advice of my peers and lived in Washington DC to better observe the city and its people. For one month in April I lived in between the Shaw and Convention Center metro stations. And in the case you’re new—this is in addition to living in the DC area for about 30 years. Here’s what I noticed:

99% of women are unattractive

I remember being in the Metro Center station on a Saturday night surrounded by a couple hundred people without being able to identify a single girl who was a 7 or above. At night at a medium-sized bar there is usually one or two 7’s and maybe an 8, but they are invariably inaccessible. If I lived in DC now, there would be lower motivation for me to work on my physique for the purpose of being more attractive to the low quality women I regularly see out.

On the other hand, there are pockets of very beautiful women floating around, which I did not see before. While they raise the average up, I did not see them regularly enough to figure out how to access them. My instinct is to say the average is slightly increasing, but the most beautiful girls are embedded in large groups and are hard to meet.

The white girls are utter slobs

In the relentless pursuit of their career, white girls are completely neglecting their appearance. Even if they happen to have a normal weight, their generic Gap style and use of flip flops and sneakers is inappropriate. I’m not into fashion, but I’m pretty sure I could be a consultant for these women, because as of now they seem to be dressed by the blind. The same can be said for white guys as well. These people have money and some brains but absolutely no self-awareness about how they are presenting themselves to the world.

Girls care less

It used to be that DC girls would at least be polite for the sake of being polite, but this is going out of the window. My indirect openers during the day, where I would start by asking for help, saw a slightly increased failure rate. Even helping a random stranger is becoming too much for them, and I imagine that feigning a handicap wouldn’t have made much of a difference.

At night the situation can be downright brutal, and I’ve had to emotionally brace myself before approaching to prepare for a rude response. Unless you “wow” her within the first minute by being the best clown in the room with a stellar performance, you won’t be able to keep her attention. If I was a girl who had so many cock options, I’d probably react the same way, so I can’t say I’m angry at them. They are responding in a rational way to living in a demographic environment where they are in high demand.

Everyone is a smartphone zombie

We get on girls for being addicted to their iphones, but it’s starting to engulf everyone. People are finding it impossible to wait for a train or in a coffee shop without pulling out their phone. I regularly witness a row of ten or more zombies on their phones as the subway train arrives, and when I see people put away their phone, they usually bring it back out in less than a minute, as if it’s a compulsion they can’t fight. Even more surprising is that this addiction is starting to affect the Hispanic immigrants and even the older Americans. No one is immune.

The foreign women in DC are mediocre

Yes, there are a good number of foreign women in DC, specifically workers in the soup of imperialistic agencies like the World Bank and IMF, but beauty-wise they are not the best of what their countries offer. While they dress much better than the white girls, they hover around the 5 or 6 range and are way past their prime, with an average age pushing 30. Many have also lived in the area for years and have had their personalities correspondingly corrupted. I wouldn’t bother with them if I was in their country, but in DC they are seen as cream of the crop.

Decent looking men are not escaping the struggle

I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen good-looking men (around the 7 and 8 range) with muscles and apparent game striking out with girls below 7. In foreign countries they would have minor issues getting with cute girls, but here they have to spam approach in the hopes of getting lucky. I tell guys to work on your game, body, and so on, but what’s the point if doing all that will only get you a decent girl once in a while seemingly by luck? How much use is there to the art of game in a city as awful as DC where you must do at least 30 approaches a week, essentially making getting laid a part time job, and when a girl feels more comfortable screening men via apps instead of meeting them in person?

The lack of price discovery is hurting men

I did about 15 approaches my first week in DC, both day and night. After those experiences, which did not result in sex, my gut told me to stop playing the game and chose to wait until departing the country. The reason is that, due to my travels, I know my objective value on the world market. I know what type of girl I should get and how much work is required (on average), but in DC it was quickly made apparent that I would have to put three times the effort on girls who were a third as valuable. But then my horniness asserted itself, and I willingly lowered my standards just to get laid, but it made me feel great shame.

Unfortunately for many DC men, they have not gone through the price discovery process. They think this is a state of normalcy and they can’t get better than what they’ve been getting. Too bad they haven’t visited other countries, because they are stuck in a market that doesn’t favor them, while I will continue to live in places where I have greater value and the cost of living in significantly cheaper.

Believe me that it was very sobering to get poor reactions from women who were uglier than what I was getting just a couple weeks prior in Poland. In DC I have to conclude that I am just a typical schlub, a low-value man who has to compete with tons of other men who have impressive business cards and expertise knowledge of local craft beers. In some foreign cities, I’m actually a decent catch, but here’s I’m just one of many, another circumsized cock. Just when I think my value is the highest it has ever been, DC girls remind me that I’m no better than a garbage man, and I must grind it out for sex.

Everyone is an actor

I forgot that people in America ask how you are without actually wanting to know the answer. It may actually seem friendly and nice on the surface, but I consider it rude because the questioner has no intent to carry through what could be a neutral or negative response. It’s tiring and fake to have dozens of these bullshit greetings and small talk exchanges every day. In addition, people say thank you for everything. I regularly witness people say thanks in restaurants for being seated, receiving a menu, or even receiving the check. Saying thanks has been reduced to conversational filler with no meaning behind it.

The suburbs insulate you from the worst problems

A lot of people said in the past that I would have had a better time in DC had I lived in the city instead of the suburbs. The last time I visited for a month, I experienced a sort of reverse culture shock depression and thought it was because I stayed with my dad in the middle of nowhere without a car. This time I stayed within 10 minutes walking distance to Chinatown and 15 minutes walking distance to U & 14th Streets. But I entered the same kind of depression faster. After only seven days, I was aching to leave, even though I was very close to many cafes, restaurants, and bars. My dad’s suburb actually insulated me from all negative things I disliked about DC, but there is no avoiding these features when you’re in the thick of it. If you consider that DC is a poison, it would only make sense that you’d get sicker if you were exposed to larger doses of the harmful agent. I can only conclude that living in the suburbs for so many years delayed my exit from the area.

White is not right

White girls are becoming a bad bet. In DC it’s clear they are most affected by smartphone addiction and feminist ideology. They are masculine, rude, and eagerly receptive to corporate manufactured trends. More severely, they are the ones who are most likely to accuse you of assault or harassment, or rape you in a divorce. They truly are the most entitled and privileged class of female in the world, and while I don’t want to say I fear them, I feel quite hesitate to have sexual relations with them, especially if they find my internet writings. They are the ones who—more than any other type of woman—can turn my life upside down by lying to the police. It’s not a stretch to say that if you interact with them, you’re essentially like a black man in the Jim Crow south, one accusation away from big problems or, at the minimum, having your reputation ruined.

New technologies are cockblocking men

Every technology or app invented this point forth will benefit women more than men. All social networking and smartphone technologies, while offering some benefit to men in specific circumstances, offer a far greater benefit to women in satisfying their attention and validation needs. Facebook and the smartphone in particular are seemingly geared for the female species.

A new app which I got word is hurting men is Uber. In the past, if a woman was in your place for the night, she would likely stay and bang your brains out, even if your game wasn’t “perfect.” But now, if she gets just one “creepy” feeling or you make one bad joke that she doesn’t want to brush off, she can pull her phone, make two clicks, and have a car waiting for her outside within a few minutes. Even though catching a cab is easy, this new app is extremely popular with women and—from what I hear—is used often to delay sexual intercourse or to give women an out when they encounter imperfect game. The saddest part of mobile or internet technology is that men are openly embracing it even though it harms them when it comes to having sex with women.

Tasty cheap food is everywhere

The amount of delicious food choices here is astounding, both in the supermarkets and in restaurants. There is a neverending temptation to eat food that was engineered in laboratory settings to be incredibly tasty, compared to the healthy but bland offerings I often find in Eastern Europe. What’s even more incredible is how cheap food is if you account for the average salary in America. Yes, food in the third-world is cheaper in absolute terms, but not in relation to the lower income that foreign people earn.

Because of the deliciousness and cheapness of food, an American must show daily self-constraint to resist eating more than their body needs. It’s actually a miracle that skinny people exist at all in America. They must have incredible virtue to resist the extra heapings of food that they come across every day. Even I gained 2.5 pounds during my stay because I indulged in luxury burgers and peanut butter.

Progressive and feminist propaganda is working

You know all the bullshit you encounter on Jezebel and XOjane? It’s filtering into the mainstream. One girl tried to preach to me about the 77% wage gap (which has thoroughly been debunked) and I overheard another wage gap discussion by an overweight white woman. I overheard minority women talking about “micro aggressions,” and the word “privilege,” to denote some type of race or economic advantage, is part of daily lexicon. As much as we hate sites that spread this information, we have to accept that today’s American woman is a vacuous receptacle for them because it allows her to not take personal responsibility for her life. The exception is if she ever achieves success, whereby she is intelligent and empowered, but if she experiences a failure, then it was due to someone else’s privilege or a mythical illuminati construct to hold down women for all eternity.

Black men are getting soft

If there’s one race in America that you could count on to be hypermasculine, it was black men. This is coming to an end. The younger black men are becoming more feminized or just outright turning to homosexuality. This softening is reflected in rap music. I used to listen to it to get a chauvinistic surge before going out at night, but nowadays a lot of the top acts like Future, Kanye West, Drake, and even Lil Wayne are spitting betafied anthems that are one small step above Bruno Mars. It makes sense from a commercial standpoint—this is what black men now want.

I believe that smartphones are playing a big part in this softening. Black youth who used to be loud and aggressive are now docile with their devices hooked up to a pair of Beats by Dre headphones, bobbing their heads alone, not disturbing anyone else’s space. I used to be ultra-vigilant when walking in DC late at night, but I believe young black men have become less capable of violent crime. Unless you’re in the ghetto and see obvious thug body language with menacing eye contact or baggy jeans that could conceal weapons, safety shouldn’t be a huge concern. I also see how the white knockout game was overstated in its prevalence. With the huge amount of black-white mixing in gentrified areas, a couple dozen incidents in two or three years should be considered a disturbing nuisance instead of an outright race war.

Men are super thirsty

I can’t blame men for being thirsty in the anti-male DC environment, but it definitely doesn’t make any night out enjoyable when you have to compete with men who are willing to pedestalize women to great heights just for a chance at a conversation, lining up to provide open bar service without wanting anything in return besides a 1% shot at sex.

It got to the point where for principle’s sake I declined to approach a girl to not further boost her ego, even though it would result in no sex for me. It’s just perverse and unnatural to see average women with so many options. The only way to pick up at night in DC is to have strong thirst. Otherwise, you won’t be able to tolerate what you see.

Women insult you when they want to fuck you

If a girl calls you a douchebag, but remains planted, you are probably going to smash. With the two girls I had intimacy with, I was called a grab-bag of the usual suspects: creep, shady, jerk, dick, sexist, offensive, and annoying. For a girl to call me these names, and then soon let me shove my tongue down her mouth, is quite unnatural, but then again they serve as definitive proof that you are entertaining her and giving her the drama that she wants in her hookup partner.

It’s clear to me that the compliment is officially dead. Modern interactions are devolving into something like a freestyle rap battle that ends with rough sex. In fact, the best way to judge how well you’re doing is when a girl insults you and then smiles. Keep up the banter and invite her to your place while disingenuously telling her that you don’t want to have sex with her because her hair color is wrong or due to some other trivial flaw.


I don’t know how you guys do it. I don’t know how you can stay in these types of environments. I’m not judging or shaming you for that, but either your will is stronger than mine or your personality is Americanized to the point where you possess some shared traits with American women. I used to have some of these traits as well, but I did a detox abroad and am now unable to tolerate them for more than a month at a time. Depending on how you look at it, I’m either ruined or saved.

The only sadness I have is towards my family, who still retain hope that I will one day move back to DC and be closer to them, but if anything, I’m more certain than ever that it’s just not the place for me. I’m more than happy to visit them from time to time, but I see DC as a dead city, and based on the many conversations I had while there, it’s dead to a lot of other men too.

    The “price discovery” part is important. As a first-generation American I’ve been blessed to have one foot back in Europe through my parents influence. Its led me to move back. I can understand how hard it is for guys to plan a vacation here, let alone leave the US with hardly a clue of what they’re missing, but its worth it, if only to recognize the sexual market imbalance and cultural decay that affects your daily life in the states.

    1. Cato July 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm

      So basically you have better women and less stress in Europe?

      1. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 6:02 pm

        You can’t even compare, it’s like day and night with North America being the night. People in Europe work to live whereas Americans live to work.

      2. Nick July 15, 2014 at 3:05 am

        It wasn’t just women that prompted the move, I also left my job to continue studying, but basically yes, better women, less stress about political correctness, feminism, workaholic attitudes, etc.

      3. Conrad Stonebanks July 15, 2014 at 7:24 am

        As a European, I don’t share this view. Political correctness and “Jante Law”-ism are doing damage in Western Europe much like a bunch of angry elephants running through a china shop. (Roosh did a post on the Jante Law and what it entails, http://www.rooshv.com/the-biggest-cockblocker-in-the-world-is-from-denmark)

        Regarding the women, while it’s true that Western European women aren’t quite as fat as their American counterparts (they *are* gaining weight, though), they are spoiled, entitled, and buried with their faces in their smartphones from sunrise to sunset. High-powered bitch shields everywhere. Many of them are not overt feminists, but they do subscribe to feminism. Just like in the U.S., it pays for them to think of themselves as victims.

        Western Europe isn’t some “poosy paradise”, or some male-friendly utopia. On the contrary.

      4. Nick July 15, 2014 at 9:06 am

        I live in Eastern Europe. Some of the negative aspects of American culture are creeping in, but it’s still dramatically different.

        Quote: “Some of the negative aspects of American culture are creeping in, but it’s still dramatically different”

        I agree. And it pays to keep an eye on the progress of flow of American poison. But smartphones are spreading this shit fast.

        Quotes: “As a European, I don’t share this view. Political correctness and “Jante Law”-ism are doing damage ”

        Europe is still way better than the usa. Visit America and see for yourself. The whole Jante Law stupidity is limited to Denmark and parts of scandinavia.

        Eastern europe certainly does not entertain such shit, as well even Germany and Nederlands.

      7. Conrad Stonebanks July 15, 2014 at 12:17 pm

        I disagree about political correctness not being an issue in the Netherlands or Germany.

      8. A Dude July 15, 2014 at 4:22 pm

        Political correction is indeed everywhere. But I was referring to Jante Law being in only a few countries.

      9. asshole July 17, 2014 at 4:54 pm

        Ofcourse it is. But nowhere near the levels experienced in the US. The US has a tendency to go overboard on many issues; it seems like they’re often on the extremes ends and rarely in the middle. Europeans are less like this; problably because of the demographics and geography i.e. many different peoples and nations on a relatively small piece of land without an overly dominant player (USA type nation). This has its positives and negatives:
        Pos: Europeans are folks that mainly reside in the middle; no real/serious room for extremists.
        Neg: 80% of the time is spent on negotiations, meetings, monologues, dialogues, talks etc.

      10. Tom Dane May 29, 2016 at 12:05 pm

        All of western europe is the same as america. You will find minor differences but that’s it. If you want to experience something truly better, go to Asia or Russia (I’ve heard, never been to Russia).

    2. ons4everAlpha July 15, 2014 at 3:08 pm

      It’s important, however, to distinguish which part of Europe. If you go to the UK, Netherlands, or Denmark, it’s just as bad if not worse than the States. If you go to EE, OTOH, it’s great.

    You just described the dating scene in my town. Where I live is the polar opposite of DC but the problems are exactly the same. My town is conservative, white, lower middle class, religious, and much smaller than DC BUT what you described is exactly the situation here.

    The dating inequity in the USA is so great a man must fight for pussy with the thirst brigade that 10 years ago he would not even consider.

    I’m so sick of it. I wish I could go abroad and enjoy the quality of women I have always enjoyed (until about 10 yrs ago). I simply am stuck here for another 15 yrs. until I retire. I just hope 55 is not too old to go abroad.

    1. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      1. 55 is waaaay to late to go abroad! You ain’t gonna get no genuine interest from females any longer and you ain’t gonna get no reasonable job in order to get by.
      2. I guess you are 40 right now and it still ain’t too late to make a move, but something is telling me that you simply lack guts to do so.
      3. If you are sick of it-then make a move or stop complaining! Words ain’t gonna get you nowhere. Deeds will.

        Where is this Cheetos-eating basement-dweller getting his likes from… or did I just answer my own question?

        I was 39 when I went abroad for 18 months, and I enjoyed genuine interest throughout my time overseas. I’m 42 and back in the States for now, but I’ll be gone again soon enough. From both personal experience and observation, I can assure any reasonably-kept man that overseas, you can pull pussy half your age into your 60’s.

      3. WorldTraveler July 15, 2014 at 11:56 am

        The only difference is that you went abroad being 39 y.o. and stayed for only 18 months, whereas he’s planning to go when he hits 55 and that’s 16 years difference between you and him.
        Plus, you have 18 months foreign experience and I have 20 years traveling the world. That’s where I’m getting my information and facts from.
        Basement dweller?:-) OK, please name the country you’ve lived in for 18 months. I’m waiting:)

      4. Barry July 15, 2014 at 12:18 pm

        Ecuador – 12 months
        Malaysia – 6 months

        Your turn, Sparky. Where have you been?

        BTW, I notice you avoided responding directly to my claim that he’ll be able to pull much younger pussy. I’ve seen it happen, and since you’re such an **accomplished** world traveler, I’m sure you’ve seen it too.

      5. WorldTraveler July 16, 2014 at 11:00 am

        1. I do NOT dispute the fact that it IS indeed possible for an older male to date a significantly younger female overseas. Then again it all depends on what a male is looking for in a female and vice versa. There are a lot of different “aspects” and hidden agenda in all this.
        2. Where have I been, lived or visited? Canada, USA, Mexico, Belize, Cuba, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Greece, Poland, Ukraine, Russia. And this is NOT the full list of my travels or work places, just some random picks:-)

      10. Barry July 16, 2014 at 7:22 am

        You’re welcome. Don’t let the posers here dampen your spirits. When I was in Ecuador, a guy in his mid-sixties who lived two floors down from me was dating women in their thirties. This was a guy living on a modest retirement, by the way. So it can be done.

        In between now and the time you hit 55, I would recommend that you do the legwork in determining which culture is right for you, learn as much of said culture’s language as you can, and look for ways to meet people from the culture of your choice, even if you have to drive – or fly! – to do so.

        Good luck.

    One point I’d see is that it motivates you to work on your value while you save and/or plan to go abroad, since you may not be as motivated once you’re abroad in a favorable sexual market.

    American culture IS a disease. Those of us who have become cured of this DISEASE by living outside of America for years obviously will appear “strange” to such diseased people.

      Indeed. When the inmates are running the asylum it is no surprise that the healthy outsiders are seen as the deranged crazies in need of locking up and “curative therapy”. They have to be made one of us at all costs. The hive simply cannot tolerate dissidents escaping a sinking ship and refusing to go down with the others like good little lemmings following the herd off the cliff. It is just not done.

      I lived in Japan for a couple of years and it literally detoxed my soul of all the negative behaviors that I learned in America.

      The day I came back i could literally feel all of the negative energy and unhappiness when i set foot in this country. it was like returning to jail, but under the disguise of freedom.

    3. splooge July 14, 2014 at 7:25 pm

      sadly that disease is spreading through media and ruining women half the world over. Even poor and conservative nations. Like India is thinking like western feminist now.
      For example they say woman there is raped every 22 minutes which is just under 24000 a year, a figure off of wiki which in per capita terms is tied with Canada. They are already mastering distortions and manipulating info like a real woman would do in an arguement.

      Notice that when we here of feminists and she aint white its a privileged indian woman. I swear they are the most common race subscribing to feminism next to white women…though starting to hear of islamic feminism occurring in middle east sadly. I wonder why russian or asian girls dont embrace it. Wonder how they are fighting it off?
      They have to avoid the mistakes of brazil now that its spreading in their nation(even met a brazilian feminist myself which was shocking)

      any where you travel youll find western fast food,western clothes,media and ideas all over. Its like a silent colonialism. First white men took over the world and now its their women.

      1. splooge July 14, 2014 at 7:38 pm

        one last thing i wanna throw in is, whats with all those pixie cuts showing up. You know whee they shave the side of their head like someone got em back bad in some prank.
        Ive even seen em on indian(1 living in malaysia a conservative nation) and asian women now like wtf.
        Like why would they wanna take the worst of white women. Now that they are self handicapping themselves, the scene gets more messed….well makes its easier for white women to compete.
        he only thing I can think of is that after foreign women started getting a monopoly on men, they thought they can afford to slack, only to lose em to say latin an ee girls comin in now , whom havent made their mistakes yet.
        But if any white girl wakes up and doesnt follow that trend shell out do em all.
        But over here for the most part the asian girl is queen because as an average they; are the most feminine.

      Hes written that they know and his female relatives have given him white knight sermons despite his extensive testing of field data that shows otherwise.

      What I always wondered was—
      Why did Roosh’s people choose an utter sh*t hole like DC? All I can figure is economic because if Roosh had been from Los Angeles (very sizeable Middle Eastern community there) I don’t think any of the Bang Guides wouldv’e existed because LA has so many beaches, walkable areas, tourist spots, parks, etc. that it would be game Heaven compared to most of the US like G Manifesto used to say (he said California sucks but most of America REALLY sucks-and DC and Dixie suck the MOST).

      1. RedPillRenegade July 16, 2014 at 2:02 am

        LA isn’t a walk in the park. In fact I’d say DC, Toronto and LA are all in the running for the being the progenitors of the PUA scene. Lot of truth to this video:


  7. Solo July 14, 2014 at 10:15 am

    in 2009 I would have read this and disagreed but….

    It’s not 2009, btw I’m not in DC, I’m in Minneapolis and this applies as well. Except for the black men being soft part. The black guys who do well here are the ones who are far from soft. The dress thing is truly something that’s appalling. I saw a woman wear a beautiful dress with flip flops, wtf? why would you wear a beautiful dress just to wear flip flops. It was just disgusting

    Having lived in Europe and now here. Roosh is right American men are getting a raw deal. One of the reasons why the argument of “looks, money, perfect game” etc have become so popular in forums the last few years is because in america you literally have to have all those things unless you are fortunate to already have a solid social circle to begin with. This is why average guys are so frustrated and lowering their standards. The thirst is real out here. Personally speaking I’ve focused my energies on my self. I’ve lost weight had a blast this summer so far with friends and I will be doing some traveling. Women are an option for me not a priority. This year will be a record low in notch count for me, but for once I can truly say that I’m fine with this.

    I guess I’m getting older ha

      Quote: “It’s not 2009, btw I’m not in DC, I’m in Minneapolis and this applies as well”

      Not too long ago there was an article at ROK on how the Twin Cities is a great place to get laid. I don’t see how this can be, unless one is willing to plug ultra-fatties.I was in Minneapolis on a business trip a few months back and the only thing I can say is that people are more polite, but that’s about it. Most women were overweight, with only a few good looking females, and of course these women are riddled with attitude. This is sad because Minneapolis has so much going for it considering it’s a small city. From the museums and universities to local beer houses and various clubs, that city probably was a great place to live before feminism, the internet, smartphones and everything else contributing to the fragmentation of society began to take hold.

      1. Solo July 15, 2014 at 10:23 am

        Compared tobigger cities hell yes Minneapolis has tons of fatties and the hotties are all imported and leave once they graduate or get better jobs. The women here are beautiful but only in Minneapolis will you see women wearing dresses and get into nice venues with flip flops. I have never seen this in Chicago/NY or hell even Scottsdale.

        The reason why good looking women here have attitude is because there is no competition. I have no problem calling these women out on their behavior, I don’t play that shit and I will put a woman in her place. I was on a date with a mere 6 a couple weeks ago. The chick had such terrible personality/attidude that I told her she needed to leave. The problem is the liberal propaganda is strong in this state and not in a good way. For instance last week there was huge controversy on “Bar Louie” and if they were racists. Anyone who is familiar knows that BL is one of the best spots in uptown and that they consider themselves more upscale


        ^^^ just read this nonsense

        I actually defended the bar’s dress code and I’m a MINORITY! Minnesota nice is just a fake cop out the liberals like to use to seem progressive . Even approaching women now if you say something that’s not PC you will hear the word “creepy” or “Creeper” you can’t mass approach daytime anymore in the U of M due to recent shootings and violence.

        I could go on but it has gone downhill

  8. Tom Dane July 14, 2014 at 10:16 am

    “Depending on how you look at it, I’m either ruined or saved.”

    The latter. Anyone with a brain can see that something is wrong. Cant be that manny brains floating around then it seems.
    Problem is, when you have seen it, there’s no turning back. The biggest problem is when you have seen it and are not able to get away, like you did.

    1. Model 800 July 14, 2014 at 10:53 am

      Agreed. I still cannot understand how these people are unable even to fathom the though that what they are experiencing relationship-wise is simply not normal. You have to be severely lobotomized to be that clueless, especially when attempting to defend such a dating “market” as an added bonus. The simple fact is that trying to push such a dysfunctional reality on anyone who has seen the light on the deluded basis that that is all they “deserve” and that they should be happy with what is on offer is tantamount to a severe personal insult to any clear headed and informed individual. It is like being told that you must allow yourself to be tied in a sack with a rabid lynx and like it by golly, no matter how many deep lacerations you end up with. Not for me thank you very much!

  9. Jake July 14, 2014 at 10:28 am

    Unfortunately the world will look a lot more like DC in the future. There is no escape from the Washington Model, the USA has won and exported his sick ideas all around the world.
    Welcome to the 21st century.

    1. dilettante July 15, 2014 at 7:40 am

      Russia is the last refuge left. it’s not perfect but its all we’ll have left sooner rather than later.

      1. WorldTraveler July 15, 2014 at 11:50 am

        I’m in Russia as we speak and can confirm every word written above!

      2. Cяuiseя July 15, 2014 at 5:11 pm

        Yes, in Russia girls can watch every American tv show redubbed in Russian within 24 hours of airing, but at least they dress nice and feminine and 90% are skinny. I plan to go back to Russia in December. One way tickets to Moscow are about $350, and factor about $200 for the visa. Too bad you can only go for less than 30 days without jumping through a lot of hurdles, unlike most other countries like Ukraine and Romania where Americans can visit visa-free for up to 90 days.

      3. Model 800 July 18, 2014 at 8:25 am

        As long as economic incentives push them to keep their looks and manners it’s a go. But if the welfare state ever ends up instituted over there then all bets are off. Hopefully cultural resistance will still prevent that from happening as living conditions improve overtime.

  10. Molnár András July 14, 2014 at 10:58 am

    “White is not right”

    My ex-gf, mad I broke up with her, accused me (falsely) of raping and beating her for four years (our relationship). It ruined my life and took years to recover from.


    1. splooge July 14, 2014 at 8:02 pm

      happened to my cousins buddy whom got ass raped,mentally and physically by his Fillipino wife, whom was physically abusive herself.
      He was fit young good looking(lost his virginity at 12), white and had a good job…a huge catch to SEA women or any for that matter.

      Ill tell you what I told him…about ethnic girls especially if shes from conservative community going after the white guy.

      Shes sees you as beta bux, freedom and no responsibility…like in your sitcoms. Where the wife is some slut, thats always right, that cant cook or clean for shit, fucked like a whore but a prude with you, and get lots of “help” with you doing domestic chores and kids so she can do nothing or have her “career”. Wants her cake and fuck it too. Dont be her Ray Romano.

      While her :abusive”,”crazy” ,”domineering”and “bad” swarthy men, whom actually have certain expectations of her as a woman to uphold. Like being young,sweet, virgin,domestic skills and nurturing to kids. Basically her Ricky Ricardo.

      dont be that western white knight trying to “save” her. Youll just get another white bitch 2.0 in a 3rd world body.

      you have been warned. When they are denied something they are like teenagers when they rebel, they will go overboard.

      1. Ian July 14, 2014 at 10:35 pm

        LOL-Its like this brother who had mad game told me-
        Don’t save her. She don’t wanna be saved, Caint nobody win being a Captain Save-a-Ho (rotflmao!!!_

  12. Jason July 14, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Having lived in DC for over a decade most of this stuff is true.

    Speed Dating – Just line the cattle up and try to spout your social worth in under 4 minutes. Oh wait, most of the women who show up are government employees who “can’t talk about their jobs” and try to play it off that what they’re doing is of great importance. Oh yeah, everyone in DC is extremely important.

    The Kane Show – Feminist propaganda radio show. IMHO. If you listen to the Kane show it’s just full of feminist BS. War of the Roses, app advertisement that benefits women, gossip that benefits women. Kane is married and when there are moments when his wife is on the phone she tries to make it clear that she’s the boss.

    It’s all about networking – True friendships are not in anyone’s real interest. it’s what you can bring to the table socially. It’s not about who you are, but who do you work for. There is also a big thing about being fake. That’s “saying all the right things” and blathering a few uncommon vocabulary words to appear intelligent and win people over. Most people that i’ve met tries this approach and if unmasked will always try to change the subject. Roosh did an article about his return back to DC. One of the things that is true is that if you don’t spit out your social value of who you work for, they try to manipulate you into telling by calling you creepy. I sometimes feel like taking the Sean Connery approach to some of these women.

    Anyway, DC was depressing for me. It was just a fake town full of fake people trying to keep up appearances above very shitty personalities. I’m glad i’m out of there. Life has been good since then.

    1. Dave6034 July 14, 2014 at 1:35 pm

      To paraphrase Lenin, the people of DC think they are the brains of the nation, when in fact they are its shit. A better anatomical analogy would be a malignant tumor — it keeps growing and consuming until the host organism dies.

    P.S. The Race way is going full force in philly. If you’re white, expect to be attacked / robbed daily. I had to flee philly (even with a CCW) because of how bad it was.

    The blacks roam around in droves and attack whites.

    1. splooge July 14, 2014 at 7:44 pm

      thats what you get for not checking your women whom brought feminism and ruined black families….and now other the world over.

    What are some cities you’ve been to where the women are friendly, compliments work, etc.?

    1. WorldTraveler July 15, 2014 at 11:49 am

      I’m NO Roosh, but can definitely recommend Russia, Ukraine or Belarus. Any bigger city here would be an OK place to find a completely different universe populated with amazing ladies!

  16. Hassan July 14, 2014 at 11:43 am

    Anyone can see the smart phones, electro youth zombies, popos on every corner, surveillance grid, anti human culture, sex wars, youth made into weaklings, etc. is all 1984/animal farm crap.

    Another thing that pisses me off is how cold blooded American families have become- they buy pets and more cheap junk to fill the void of their soulless, selfish, egotistical, materialistic existence. I had lunch with my Mom and her family is a total mess- lawyers after each other, etc. and I said dont you envy the people in the Dominican Republic, Brazil, or Mexico who are poor but live by the sea and have big tight families and a real sense of belonging and togetherness?
    My grandma was from Brazil and although the family was poor- they loved each other stick together, there’s a brother who’s 80 who is a man of God who calls and prays for all his brothers and sisters each week, they care for each other and all have a place. Look a the Roosh video where he got an atv stuck in the coastal sand dunes and the poor beach community he went to. You could see how helpful and loyal the people were not this awful back biting like the US.

  17. FeministsRuinedAmerica July 14, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    I spent 6 months in South America and have been back to the US for a month now. I am also quietly dying inside but it will probably be a few months or even a year before I can venture out again. I feel your pain Roosh 🙁

  18. NeoBushi July 14, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    here in chicago women dress like garbage. over half of them wear yoga and athletic clothing but they don’t work out and have terrible posture. the EEs I’ve encountered here stick out like a candle in the dark because they dress so well by comparison. I miss when women used to wear SKIRTS in the summer time. now it’s all flabby cellulite yoga pants disgustingness. you rarely see women wearing heels except in high end restaurants and clubs.

    1. doclove July 14, 2014 at 6:28 pm

      I agree, and I’m from Chicago too. I’ve often said that the Eastern European Women raise the overall level of beauty among the women here. This metropolitan area of Chicago has a higher percentage of Eastern European immigrants of any nationality such as Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria etc. but especially from Poland than any other major American city with at least 2 million in the metropolitan(city and suburbs) area. Chicago is the 3rd most populous metropolitan area in the USA. The shame is that many of the people especially the women here of Eastern European descent are 3rd, 4th and 5th generation descendants and are as fat, ugly and having poor personalities as the rest of the nation. I’m of half Polish and half Irish descent myself, and most 2nd generation and beyond are mixed Eastern European and something other descent too. Don’t blame the genetics on this as this is not the problem because the genetics are good and the culture is what is ruining the women.

      1. NeoBushi July 14, 2014 at 6:48 pm

        I can tell how long an EE has been in chicago based on the shitiness of their attitude. when they arrive they soon learn that they can walk all over men and have everything handed to them. that’s why the love it here. the men just like the economic opportunity here. the most pleasant women are FOB. they also agree that local women do not take care of themselves.

      2. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 8:49 pm

        Nothing will ever change as long as North American males remain pussies and continue to cater to any possible and impossible demands from American women.

      3. Model 800 July 18, 2014 at 8:32 am

        As long as the cathedral continues to indoctrinate them in this manner there is small hope of change notwithstanding a severe economic collapse. And the overall robustness of the U.S. may allow it to continue chugging along for quite some time as the collapse slowly takes shape all around.

      4. fds November 19, 2017 at 12:19 am

        It’s not that simple. There just aren’t enough fit women here. Yes, Christianity, chivalry, trying to do good, etc. are all a synergy of earnest males, but show me the women!!

        Spot on.

        Whenever I’m outside the states and meet a chick who tells me how much she wants to come to America, what she is really saying is “I want to come to America where my beauty will fetch me plenty of desperate and wealthy providers, where I will enjoy my ‘queenie’ status and all other benefits of living in a society that worships women.

        Ps- If some of you think a poster is a dumb ass- remember they could be from the South where education is so substandard that things that seem simple and everyday to you are heavy living to the poor bastard who had the luck if being born into the land of nasty gravy and ham and big Ford pickup trucks.

    Bland food in eastern europe? Either i am completely assimilated or my taste buds are faulty. At least in Russia, due to the different influences of all the former soviet republics you have a huge variety of different styles of food, all quite tasty and never bland.

    1. WhyDoesntTheChickenSmell July 15, 2014 at 7:48 am

      I agree. I live in EE and eat Thai food regularly. The Thai food is the same as in the US, just higher quality ingredients. As some other posters have commented, the milk and eggs taste significantly better here than in the US. If you want to talk about bland, low quality food you can definitely point towards the “unsmelling” American chicken Roosh mentioned in a previous post. It would have been nice if Roosh had gone into some specifics about which foods he was referring to. Maybe he meant the sugar-filled cupcakes that the fatties always eat (why would you be tempted by those?). That’s hardly food though.

  22. OlioOx July 14, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    Roosh excuse me to burst in like this so to speak, without having read this 07 14 post, I’ve just run across a great set of Youtube vids by a youngish (28) Englishman talking about life in Novosibirsk. I know you’ll find them extremely interesting from your Roosh perspective and you may even get a column out of viewing them. Just go you Youtube and do a search for “Life in Novosibirsk 1 of 8”

    Ok now I’ll read this latest post of yours.

  23. DavidSNESGAMER July 14, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Excellent article, and it matches up with my own experiences after a metaphorical “detox abroad”. I was in a relationship with a traditional girl throughout my twenties, and when I found myself single at 30, I was astounded at the cold, macabre reality of the modern yuppie life – sexlessnes, pettiness, unhealthy, and spiritually vapid.

  24. OlioOx July 14, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    OK Roosh I’ve just read the post and it occurs to me — isn’t all this the kind of thing that originally inspired the development of Game in the first place?

    1. ATC July 14, 2014 at 6:59 pm

      Exactly. Either

      1) the supply of fucks has dropped significantly from 10 years ago, or,

      2) American girls are fucking a different type of man than they used to, and Game Gurus have to figure out who that type is.

      There is some preliminary evidence for 1), by the way (link below), but my gut feeling is that the next generation of gurus will be the ones who know how to get into cliques and social circles, and game those.


    2. Guy Incognito July 14, 2014 at 7:43 pm

      Indeed. Powerful feedback loop.

        If what Roosh is trying doesn’t work, then why not experiment with radical changes to the way he games American girls?

        If major adjustments are obviously necessary, then try them…even if they don’t work, you’re no worse off than before, right?

        There’s still a huge market out there for any man who can game American girls in 2014 and put Jezebel in its place. There is no reason they should be getting the last laugh.

        “…then why not experiment with radical changes to the way he games American girls? … There is no reason they should be getting the last laugh.”

        The joke is on you when you use your valuable time and resources to reward fundamentally undersirable women with attention and sexual gratifilcation.

    If you were flat broke- how could an individual make money to stay in Eastern Europe?

    1. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 5:57 pm

      Easily! You can always teach English and be in high demand! Just for starters:)
      Trust me-there is a LOT which can be done over here!!

      1. Joe July 14, 2014 at 8:24 pm

        World traveler-
        please expound on what that “alot” exactly is???

      2. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 8:44 pm

        Should I give you my business ideas?:-))
        Ok, 1 more:)) Or two:-)
        You can teach English privately, 1 on 1, or you can open some kind of an English Learning Center and go one or two levels up in terms of the number of your students and the number of money bills in your wallet 🙂
        You can become a professional Fitness Instructor in America and be very popular in places like Moscow, St. Petersburg or any other major city in Russia since they loooooove English speaking coaches.
        Or you can open a Travel Company and target Western Tourists willing to discover and explorer your corner of Russia:) You’ll need a good and spacious car for that but it’s fun and worth it.

      3. Ian July 14, 2014 at 9:59 pm

        Human nature being what it is-it’s highly improbable that anyone would eveb take action, let alone copy your ideas.

        Iv’e heard they love to drink in EE-
        A hole in the wall bar that catered to the hard drinking dudes would probably do well in any place right?

        Your ideas and my bar idea all require at least 50k to act on.

      4. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 10:29 pm

        Yeah right:-)) They looove to drink and walk around with bears by their side on permafrost instead of sidewalks.
        (Sarcasm here).
        Trust me-Eastern Europe is NOT what Western propaganda and mainstream media try relentlessly to brainwash all the sheeple with.

      5. Ian July 14, 2014 at 10:46 pm

        LOL- and they don’t all have big brown coats with a half empty flask inside them either?

        What are some things youv’e noticed via experiencing their culture that are different from the lamestream media’s portrayal?

      6. WorldTraveler July 14, 2014 at 10:59 pm

        What’s different? They do not like or accept double or even triple standards, lies, hypocrisy, head games and other shit which is so widespread in North America.

      7. Ian July 14, 2014 at 11:11 pm

        No ones denying that Rome is burning- but I meant lifestyle? Can 35 yo dudes bang 19yo girls? Is the food decent (heard it was shit)? Are the cops and government bastards to deal with (like some shitty Country with 330 million pop.), are the clothes fugly? Is the furniture cheap and uncomfortable? AAre the women nice and easy to deal with?

      8. WorldTraveler July 15, 2014 at 11:43 am

        1. If a 35 y.o. dude stays in shape, works out, tries to get better intellectually, takes good care of himself and behaves properly then he ain’t gonna get no problems in dating 19 y.o. girls in Eastern Europe.
        2. The food is indeed good. You can buy whatever you want at any supermarket with no difference in selection from North America/Western Europe. Then it’s up to you on what YOU would like to cook:-)
        3. Police and government are OK to deal with as long as you simply follow the general set of rules. I’ve never had any problems with them at all.
        4. People here dress A LOT nicer and more stylish than in America where most girls look like a cow on ice when they try to wear high heels. Ladies here actually KNOW how to wear high heels, mini skirts and make up in order to look stylish and sexy.
        5. You can buy ANY furniture you want here.
        6. Women are very nice and easy to deal with as long as YOU are also nice, gentle and easy to deal with:-) it’s always a two way road and one has to give in order to get.

      I went to college woth some DC girls and they were ratty looking 6s who were plain in style, boring as hell, and had diva attitudes-it made me internally say-F that place.

  31. splooge July 14, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    when I read posts like this like how DC or how Toronto sucks on how hard it is to get laid and how much uglier the women are, cant help but wonder why some red pillers go to some conservative and/developing nation.

    Course Im not talking about SA and EE, they are special exceptions to get laid with fly girls and would totally go, but places like africa(except the urban south africa),middle east(except tel aviv,more fat arabs then americans thanx to mcDick being delivered),south asia(india nuff said on why they suck) or pacific islands.

    I dont see the physical appeal of SEA born women because they have “3rd world look” like the other women(unless western born). But they are openly sexual and can get alot of notches.

    But just seems like they are going from a bad place to a worse place. But if its latin america,eastern europe and east asia(for some south east), these 3 regions of the world you will find “poosey paradise” or just close to it.

    The other places like india,egypt ,morocco,turkey,kenya or any of those “conservative brown or black nations” is just the complete opposite….”dick paradise” for western sluts. And weve all heard of old western women going to get laid in those nations…fuck eat pray love.

    feels like we only have few places as men to enjoy and we should enjoy those 3 regions(SA EE EA) while we can before they become “dick hell”.

    You are right about America becoming fatter and fatter. I work in a corporate job there if fucking free food everywhere and everyone indulges. At least 50% of people over 30 are fat.

      Correct – it’s like this everywhere in the West. It’s been like this for a while too (years). The only thing that varies is the relative levels of hotness as you said, but they’re still fucking cunts no matter where you go.

      I’ve noticed a bit of an awakening to this in recent months in the PUAsphere. Why now, I’m not sure. It’s like for the longest time, part of PUA culture was to be as blindly and annoyingly optimistic as possible, until one of them (Roosh, apparently) suddenly decided to confess that it actually fucking sucks, and now everyone agrees, lol.

      ”It’s tiring and fake to have dozens of these bullshit greetings and small talk exchanges every day. In addition, people say thank you for everything. ”

      exactly. It’s just bullshit, no one cares about how someone else is, yet they put up this ludicrous facade because so many are pussies unable to behave naturally. And I am saying that as someone who apparently is less socially skilled than the average person. In places like Russia people would get annoyed at someone who says ‘thank you’ for every little stupid thing. I am Italian, and the village I come from is very much ‘Russian’. Yet I have been living in the UK for a while, and I ended up saying ‘thank you’ for every stupid shit too, although not nearly as much as native UK people. It’s a disease.

    All I can say friend, is that better late then never. For many of us the above remark is an epiphany we have had years ago, so you are preaching to the quire.

    Another observation I had was that I find it interesting that you are making observations in DC where all the federal regulations are passed and implemented. These regulations that are unconstitutional and are part of the war against men. And of course the sickos you are running into in DC are partly responsible for the current state of affairs in the USA.

    1. Tom Dane July 15, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    It was women who decided their smartphones were more important than men. Every man you see with his nose in his smartphone does so realizing the futility of wasting one’s time with a hormonal driven animal. Essentially he is giving back to women what they give him.

    Absolutely right; great article Roosh. America has moved backwards in many ways (socially
    (feminist 80 IQ beliefs spouted around every corner, lack of decent
    behavior), economically (highest taxes on small business owners in
    recorded history, lowest work force participation among men in recorded
    history), with respect to food quality (check out the tons of recalled beef every year by Tyson), with respect to unconstitutional
    behavior, corruption (documented election fraud), education standards (ranking at the bottom of the civilized world in math skills), etc.) and it is bizarre that
    many of the commenters will say okay we’ve moved backwards with respect
    to women, but we’re still the best at everything else! Remove the blue
    pill dust from your ignorant bodies. These things are all connected.
    Social collapse, economic collapse (miseducated pseudoscientific
    Keynesian models), eroding the constitution and a lowered standard of
    living and purchasing power were all laid out in the Communist Manifesto
    and many other books in the 1950s. Now we’ve essentially hit rock
    bottom, the dollar recently dropped below 80 on the index, and we can
    only look back at the last 50 years of brainwashing and junk science
    theories (that almost every American accepts) with disgust and

      haha good points. All of them. I’m curious myself as to why people can’t connect the dots. This is all well-documented stuff that any normal person will easily agree with (if they care about facts or the truth in any way). America was really great 50 years ago when we produced all of our own stuff and weren’t the world’s greatest debtor nation. Things have changed and people need to stop living in the past.

  41. reaper23 July 15, 2014 at 10:03 am

    This is not my experience in dc. I find women to be approachable, open and friendly. I see enough hotties every day where I live to keep me totally satisfied. Are there 9’s and 10’s walking around everywhere? Nope. But there are some. And there are lots and lots of 7’s and enough 8’s. This is a city of fitness. Often rated the fittest city in the country. It is rated the most walkable city. People here work out, do yoga, stay in shape, ride bike to work – whatever. Spend a few minutes just watching the people go by here in the prime area, then visit a tourist area and see the difference.

    In my experience, you get back what you put out to the world. Open with positive energy and receive it back.

    I literally just hang out on the street and get opened, open girls, make connects – whatever.

    But i’ve got it all together. I’ve been at this a long time. I believe my future is in my hands. This is not a town with 1000 people in it. It is an international city with millions of people and its the richest metro area in the US. The women you seek are here, the question is, have you made yourself worthy?

    In addition, people say thank you for everything. I regularly witness people say thanks in restaurants for being seated, receiving a menu, or even receiving the check. Saying thanks has been reduced to conversational filler with no meaning behind it.

    Hehe, Roosh is officially Eastern European now. We don’t easily say thank you.

    The english overdo it too. Also, sorry, sorry this, sorry that. So much sorry and yet everyone looks so unfriendly.

    Kurupt — «C Walk»
    DJ Quik — «Dollaz and Sense»
    MC Eiht — «Straight up Menace»
    Ice Cube — «You Know How We Do It»
    Too $hort — «So You Wanna Be A Gangster»

      Lil Wayne and Drake are ok

      1. JohnsonsDog July 15, 2014 at 10:13 pm

        Which is why in the late 80s, early 90s and thus forward, anywhere 5’2 Mestizos showed up, they drove “tough brothas” out like little bitches? Blacks have been getting their asses kicked by every race on the planet except for, perhaps the Japanese, since the beginning of racial mingling yet we continue to hear this false meme? As soon as the (Communist) Wall fell, Europeans basically took over boxing at the higher weights, 168 and upwards (the weights white men are, up to the Klits), MMA is ruled by Hispanics and Whites, all strength sports are owned by whites (Iceland alone has something like 8 strong man titles), every single power lifting title is white, every firearms, archery, most track and field…all from a minority on the planet (white men).
        Running fast is great (which btw, is only western African descendant-oriented), but basically it hasn’t prevented black men from being beaten into submission everywhere they’ve ever encountered other races (except for, finally, Haiti).

      2. Ian July 16, 2014 at 12:18 am

        The essays do roll deep- theyre more like paramilitary in their hoods lol

        Lennox Lewis, Bones Jones, Rashad Evans, Anderson Silva-some bros who dominate.

        In the UFC I’d say Brazilians own that bitch overall. There must be something in their dna down there-its like they were born to own MMA.

        Whites have always been the most innovative with military science and weapons hands down.

        Germans especially. The Deutchlanders could almost kick the whole worlds ass single handedly. The best weapons are all German. British weapons suck.

      3. JohnsonsDog July 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

        And who beat the (Teutonic) Germans, for the most part in both WWs? (especially WW2?). Other Teutonic people (Anglo/Saxon/Freisian/Jutes). I’m not Anglo but the reality is, the Germanic people are probably the fiercest, best warriors since the beginning of time. They also like to destroy other cultures, and dominate, as stereotyped.

      4. RedPillRenegade July 16, 2014 at 1:37 am

        What kind of bullshit are you talking about? Look up any legit list of the top 20 boxers of all time. And see at how a disproportionate number are black.

        MMA? Gimme a break it’s a toss up as to whether Anderson Silva or Jon Jones is the best pound for pound fighter in the world. Blacks came late to the punch in MMA, but have came up.

      5. JohnsonsDog July 16, 2014 at 9:13 pm

        given that white men are a real minority on the planet, there should not be ANY white boxing or MMA champs.
        As another poster noted, Anderson Silva is great (like so many Brazl) but got his ass beat by a guy with something like 2-3 UFC fights–a white guy. Jon Jones lost to Gustaffson–you know, the Nordic guy.
        There SHOULD be way more black champions in boxing, given that they outnumber white men probably 20-1 on the planet and boxing (like sprinting) is an international sport.
        Btw, the UFC HW went from White to Hispanic…not a black guy. Jones got his ass beat and so did Silva, both by the minority race in boxing (white), UFC and the world. Not bullshit, just the truth.
        Russian (and Slavic) boxers have been destroying black men the last 10-15 years. Sorry bro, but Ali would not have lasted 10 rounds with either Klit, nor would have Tyson. There are great black boxers (like Toney, back in the day), but the stereotype is way over done.
        Btw, where are any strength feats held by the majority race on the planet (black men)? Not a SINGLE power lifting or strongman comp is owned by a black dude to my knowledge. NOT ONE. And black men compete in the sport, we aren’t talking NASCAR here.
        Just saying.

      6. RedPillRenegade July 17, 2014 at 1:29 pm

        Huh? Blacks outnumber whites 20-1? Where the hell are you pulling this figure from? There’s probably more whites than blacks on the planet. There’s 730 million people in Europe(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Europe), and that’s not even including the Slavic countries like the 143 million in Russia, 45 million in Ukraine, all the Caucasian states like Armenia, Georgia. Not including the 200 million or so white in the USA, the 25 million or so in Canada, the population of Austrailia, New Zealand, white south Africa, and the many millions of white in South America such as Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and the southern half of Brazil and even countries like Mexico and Colombia have at least 10-20% of the population that are directly European descent. And then if you slightly expand the definition of white to middle eastern people who basically look white such as Syrians, Lebanese, Persians, Assyrians, Turks, the numbers go up even way more from there. Even many Northern Indians are indistinguishable from Persians and other Mediterranean types. Even people like the Pashtuns of Afghanistan(http://pastmist.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/afghanman_arte.jpg). Even with the most conservative definition of white, there are more than a billion white people on the planet, maybe 1.5 billion. If you include “near white” people like Persians and Turks then even more. I just looked at the figures for blacks. it’s around a billion. About 800 million or so blacks in sub-Saharan Africa, and another 200 million or so in Latin America the Carribean and the United States(most blacks outside Africa live in Brazil) and this number includes a lot of people who are actually mixed but considered “black.” So definition of black is looser than the definition of white. So your 20-1 figure is pure nonsense. But anyway I’ve digressed way too much.

        Back to fighing…Anderson Silva is almost 40. You think he’s going to remain champ for the rest of his life? He’s now past his prime. During his prime years, the man cleaned out his entire division. He wasn’t the most physically imposing fighter, but was one of the smartest and most strategic fighters. And WTF are you talking about, Jon Jones won the fight against Gustaffson by unanimous decision. They rematch in September. If you can’t even get that part right(as well as your absurd 20-1 ratio on race), the rest of what you’re saying can’t even be taken seriously. Jones is the best pound for pound fighter in the world right now of any style. Jones now and Anderson Silva in his prime would be a tossup. It’s a shame that fight never happened.

        As for the UFC heavyweight title going from white to Hispanic. I believe Alistar Overeem would destroy Cain Velasquez. We’ll have to wait till that fight happens. Overeem landed such a powerful kick on Brock Lesnar that he threw in the towel right there and retired.

        Tyson in his prime(training under Cus D’amato before he got into drugs and alcohol) would have annihilated the Klitchko brothers in the first few rounds. I totally agree with this analysis: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/479214-vladimir-klitschko-versus-iron-mike-tyson-who-would-win

    “It’s clear to me that the compliment is officially dead.” You know what I miss, giving women really heartfelt compliments. When I was a boy my mom told me that women really love compliments; so I would be really attentive to women, notice the nice things they did, the good qualities they had, I would try to figure out the little things they were secretly proud of but nobody noticed and then I would hit them with a deep one and watch the fireworks on their faces. My mom told me that I would make a very good husband one day.

    But I don’t do this anymore. As I got older I discovered, that while my compliments could still produce fireworks, when I paid them to the girls I really wanted in days or weeks following the pyrotechnics display the girls would go cold on me. With consistency they would begin to take days to respond to text messages, flake on dates and their embraces would lack feminine warmth and animalistic desire. Now when a girl I really like displays a spark of uncommon virtue or beautiful individuality I bite my tongue. #YesAllWomen

    Regarding your section on “New technologies are cockblocking men”

    This reminds me of the article you put out on ROK a week or two ago about the founder of tinder. It’s people like him that create these types of apps and they all live in our around the SF bay area. I had a little rant about how tech and social media created by nerds disguised as cool kids ruins game. Uber and many other apps of the sort are doing just that. But what can we do about it?

  50. Keith Swanson July 15, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Spot on Roosh. Especially about young black men. I see it in my own son …smh

  51. scotty July 15, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    Interesting. I have lived in DC Metro the last 15 years, and my first surprise (coming from the mid-South) was how soft black men were compared to all the stereotypes I had heard. I fell in immediately with the rugby/powerlifting hyper-masculine WM crowd, and the last thing I worry about is some wannabe tough guy (black esp) who has never been in an actual man-to-man combat his entire fake-thug life in PG county. Also, it’s easy as a WM to get a great looking black woman without trying. The higher the SMV, the less they like faggoty baggy pants and the gay-ish behavior so many allegedly “straight” black men carry around in metro areas (heard the same of Atlanta).

      Nah man Ill give the bros in the A their due-theres bad ass brothas like Riddick Bowe everywhere walkin around down there. Rampage Jackson bad ass brothers everywhere in the A Town.

      1. scotty July 16, 2014 at 9:04 pm

        Riddick Bowe was a great inside fighter, esp for a big man, that’s for sure. Too bad he is retarded now (and he is from Ft. Washington, or lived here so long they think he is). Reality is, Wlad is probably the best HW of all time. He hasn’t lost in ten years, not even to the types of guys that caught up with Tyson or even Lewis, or going back to Louis. Agree with Tyson that he could not beat either brother. Vitali has NEVER been even knocked down his entire career. Unheard of. Too big, too strong. Brothers can’t hang with them.
        Anderson Silva got KTFO by a guy with something like two fights in the UFC (Weidman). Not saying no brothers can fight, but the shit is seriously overrated. Calzaghe (yes a PEER of Jones, despite contrary assertions) clowned his ass and would have 10 years earlier had they met…but Jones was too busy running from Dariuz so he could fight Jon Ruiz at HW :). You’ll always have Mayweather though. At that weight, speed matters most.
        Brothers are tough in groups (thus the stereotype of only fighting in mobs)…very few will tangle with a white guy that makes it clear it will be a fight. I know from experience just being in DC so long.

        “Brothers are tough in groups (thus the stereotype of only fighting in mobs)…very few will tangle with a white guy that makes it clear it will be a fight. I know from experience just being in DC so long.”

        I second this. They are mostly all mouth, little action unless in a pack. Also second what you said about higher SMV black women. They do not want thug simps. That has been my experience where I live also.

    I think Roosh should check out more American cities. I don’t know where Roosh has traveled within the USA, but I’ve been reading Roosh for several years and can’t remember him giving reports of other cities. DC sounds bad, but I’m sure if he went down to Miami Beach he wouldn’t be saying women are 99% unattractive. There are of course plenty of hot women to be found in NYC and LA. Women in smaller towns in middle America can still be sweet and charming.

    1. anonymous July 16, 2014 at 2:05 am

      Miami? What’s the point of hot women when the majority of them suffer from a princess complex and have effectively priced themselves out of the market? They may as well not exist.

  53. Poledaddy July 16, 2014 at 10:05 am

    This was brutal article. But I think you should almost close the book on DC at this point – this was the final dagger in the heart of the beast – any man that reads this and moves to DC because “I get a higher salary” is dead anyway. What more can you possibly say about the DC? Next time you are back in the USA can you spend time in some of the 2nd tier cities that people mention- Scottsdale, Charleston SC, Austin, Atlanta, Miami, etc. Just to see if there’s anything to them.

  54. Toads July 16, 2014 at 11:31 am

    I have read Roosh for years, and was a big fan, but now I have doubts about Roosh.

    1) Roosh used to deride MRAs for being overly paranoid about false rape accusations, but now Roosh has himself written that the chances are high enough that one should avoid white girls. So which is it?

    2) Technology is cockblocking men? Bull. There are just as many technologies helping men, and ensuring women miss their chance to marry. Even Uber does just as much to help men get laid as it does to cockblock. An Uber driver meets tons of women…

    3) I thought competent Game makes it *easier* to get laid if all the beta males are desperate, as women get so turned off by all the thirsty men that a man with Game is virtually invaluable.

    In this article, Roosh has contradicted years of his other writings, and effectively presents a bleak view of the world. He effectively has said learning Game is far less valuable than it was made out to be…

  55. DevonSparks July 16, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    SMDH. I stopped dealing with American white women years ago. I had MUCH better luck with black women. So much so I married one. Best move I ever made. Yeah I know you guys really don’t what to hear that or go there.

    Truth be told American white women are not going to change because…well they don’t have to. There are too many parched men out there willing to jump threw hoops for a taste. Good luck complaining about them. For me life is too darn short so I moved on.

    1. James Bond July 17, 2014 at 2:17 am

      I agree with you, I also have had much better luck with black women even though I am white.
      I just recently decided to no longer date white American women. They are the most rude, unfriendly, arrogant and hateful women on the face of the earth. Black women are MUCH more friendly towards me and actually flirt with me.
      Get this, a recent study showed that the lowest divorce rate in America is when a white man marries a black woman. The highest divorce rate for men in United States is when they marry a white woman. This is further proof that white women in America should be avoided like the plague!

      1. DevonSparks July 17, 2014 at 7:13 pm

        I feel ya there bro. With black women there are no games, no hidden agendas, no end runs. No more dealing with the I,me, gimmie, I want, I want, cry at the drop of the hat, complain, won’t cook or keep house crap.

        My wife has my back straight down the line. She could stay home but since we don’t have kids yet she choose to work to add to our financial security. We are partners.

        Further, and this is not to feed in to that racist stereotype B.S. that makes it hard on us white guy to get close to a black women, she actually digs sex as much as I do. It was a win all the way around so hell yeah I put a ring on it. Not going back. Never.

      2. James Bond July 17, 2014 at 11:52 pm

        I think if I do get married, it will be to a black or Hispanic woman. No way in hell would I marry a white American woman.
        I think there is truth to the old saying, “Once you go black, you never go back.”

  56. lufty July 17, 2014 at 1:13 am

    I can’t really compare DC to other American cities (Ive never been to DC) but have you had the opportunity to check out other American cities? NYC, LA, Miami etc? I wonder how they would stack up to the capital?

  57. James Bond July 17, 2014 at 2:08 am

    I especially agree with your assessment of white women. They truly are the most stuck up, unfriendly, entitled and arrogant women in the world. White women in America are the ones who are most likely to file false rape charges against a man and they also file most of the sexual harassment charges in the USA.
    I avoid white women in America like the plague! They absolutely are the most rude, hateful and materialistic women on the face of the earth! I can’t wait to take my trip to Europe next summer.

  58. rob July 17, 2014 at 2:24 am

    Dude youve got to be kidding me. Go out in Clarendon Thursday – Friday – Saturday a few weekends in a row and then try to tell me there are not some of the hottest girls you’ve seen in your life. And if you don’t bring anyone home well, maybe you shouldn’t be giving people advice about picking up girls.

  59. Joe July 18, 2014 at 1:27 am

    I think you guys live in a different world than me. I agree with a great deal of your commentary, but I think you overanalyze things. Literally, I just start talking to a girl, tell her I think she’s cute, engage in a little small talk, then start making out and you’re off to the races. Not sure why everyone here is having negative experiences.

  60. MajorStyles July 18, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    Great article again, Roosh.
    Leaving the States the other night, I struck up a conversation with the cab driver taking me to the airport. He informed me that he had fallen in love with a gal. According to him, the “best girl he has ever met.”
    Who was she? What was her 411?
    Stripper. On welfare. Three kids. Epileptic.
    The funny thing was that, after six months of courting this guy, she had still not given him any. That’s how bad it is in the States. That a train wreck like that woman still feels like she has options galore. And sadly, she is right.
    The myopic, “greatest country in the world” anthem has been the nail in the American man’s coffin, preventing him from seeking better options elsewhere. At this point, I say that those who lack the courage to implement plan B deserve the pain that plan A brings.

    1. James Bond July 20, 2014 at 12:03 pm

      In America, women have a shit load of dating options while men have little or no options. I live in Chicago and I see guys who are good looking dating women who look hideous. I also see guys who are in great physical shape dating women who are morbidly obese.
      I plan on traveling to Germany next summer and if I like it enough, I will move there. I am tired of the horrible dating scene here in “the land of opportunity.”

      1. MajorStyles July 20, 2014 at 1:43 pm

        very true. When I am in the States, I see guys looking around with a somewhat dazed look on their faces, as if to say, “where are all the girls who are even remotely eatable?” this can’t turn out good.

      2. MockerMocker July 25, 2014 at 5:58 pm

        German girls are definitely easier to get, but they still pay lip service to feminism. It’s illegal in Germany for a man to pee standing up. I’m not kidding.

  61. Beg2Differ July 22, 2014 at 3:50 am

    Has it ever occurred to Roosh that maybe he’s a great example of the cultural rot he’s talking about? “Pussy”, “game,” “just another circumsized cock” ad inifinitum. On one page he’s rightly invoking the old way of life and “values” that actually worked, but this one’s straight out of the Playboy “philosophy.”


  62. Ruckus July 23, 2014 at 4:16 am

    You could have survived in the US had you had moved to one of the southern states.

  63. Tommy Hass July 30, 2014 at 12:06 am

    “I also see how the white knockout game was overstated in its prevalence. With the huge amount of black-white mixing in gentrified areas, a couple dozen incidents in two or three years should be considered a disturbing nuisance instead of an outright race war.”

    Oh comeon. It was obscured and ignored.

  64. DCFirefighter November 3, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    I live in this fucking town…I am 40 y/o 23 Notches, and 6 flags… I agree with Roosh on most everything… Oh the day I will retire from the military and be able to move over seas… It cannot come soon ehough

  65. The Real Poder January 9, 2015 at 3:57 pm

    As a DC resident for many years now, this is incredibly accurate. I think the sections “New technologies are cockblocking men”, “The lack of price discovery is hurting men” and “Decent looking men are not escaping the struggle” are the most important parts.

    At first I thought I was the problem since I was young, had no game when I first moved here and had no basis of comparison since I hadn’t gamed in many cities. But after living here, doing more than 2,000, perhaps 3,000 approaches, I have to conclude that this is not a good city for game.

    There are two major problems with this city: a) in other cities there is some degree of assortative mating. 5 datings 5’s, 6’s dating 6’s and so on. In DC, however, all the girls want to date men that are much, much higher status than they are. You will have girls that are 5’s and 6’s wanting to date men who are 9’s and 10’s. b) there is a huge surplus of single successful men relative to single women. Hence, the women can maintain these high expectations. Also, showing off your possession does not work because the women here have money themselves and a lot of men have professional, well paying jobs so you have to stand out even more.

    The best dating successes I have had are with foreign women. That indicates to me that if I lived elsewhere (e.g. a foreign country), I could do well with the women there.

    Bars and clubs are a waste of time. I have been able to get dates from day game circa 2010-11 but girls are flakier with day game in part due to the rise of dating apps like Tinder.

    In short, don’t come to DC if you are looking for a easy city to get laid.

  66. pup April 15, 2015 at 11:38 am

    In DC I found more success doing the online dating stuff than the bar scene. Finding a nice girl in a bar with all the swinging dicks in there is just impossible.

    I eventually found a real keeper through a church organization. Guys might have to give up the traditional night game in DC and try groups, church stuff, online, volunteering, etc. to meet quality women.

    Good luck guys, there are still at least a couple good ones out there, but you might not be able to find them in the bars.

  67. oasis April 16, 2015 at 10:19 am

    “Modern interactions are devolving into something like a rap battle followed by rough sex” haha brilliant and very true.this is such forced behaviour on my part.Feels so unnatural.

    Excellent writing sir.

  68. Manny Israel April 23, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    Man I live in DC and this article is pinpoint accurate lol, that’s why I just travel to other cities a good time. DC is the NERD capital of the world.

    1. Kingsley Davis January 25, 2016 at 6:15 pm

      Dork Central (DC).

  69. Jim Christian April 27, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    If you’re in the trades in offices, all you meet all day is women. Mine is phones and IT. Broads were more fun back then maybe, I’ve been gone from DC for 7 years, moved to Boston.I killed in DC for many years, never really did the bars or went into DC at night. Women in offices just didn’t want to date guys they worked with in offices, I guess. It was easy pickins. Easy in Boston these days, maybe THAT’S changing. I did pass through DC last May for a wedding and there is NO doubt that from Richmond to Baltimore clear out to Bethesda, the women that are fat are easily a third fatter than 7 years ago and there are easily half again to twice as many as many fatties or more overall. For guys looking for women that isn’t sporting a unique approach or circumstance, it’s a disgusting city. The women hold all the jobs and they’re all sitting behind a desk overeating, I’m not sure what a guy can expect.

    Cultural Marxism is trying to destroy our Western Culture. Don’t confuse the degenerate values of CM compared to Western Culture values of Christianity, masculinity and rationality.
