2010 Reader Survey Results (Part 2 of 2)

PREVIOUSLY: Part 1

What should I do with my life?

  • Please leave this disaster zone we call America, where the subtitle should be “We have everything but no one is happy”. After being born and raised in the US, I spent 2005-2009 in Peru. Never was I happier, or had more quality girls to bang, than there. I’m heading for Ecuador this coming January. I can’t wait to get back to that life.
  • Seems you’re finding your way….learning how to make money independently and mixing foreign travel with occasional trips back to the US (though you seem more and more disillusioned with america). i am very interested in your periodic posts about how you are too far down the path of bedding new women to ever get with a single girl. you’ve started to make me think that game mastery is ultimately self-defeating…a very fun ride to…nowhere
  • Who cares, just keep writing and making more funny videos (my all time favorite was the one about Medellin, fucking awesome!) [Read the video comments—many Colombians are wishing for my death.]
  • DC sounds like crap and it coloring your view of all America. I love Austin, Tx and the chicks are beautiful and usually cool, though of course we have our share of bitches, flakes, etc.. I don’t feel the same way that you do about America in general though. I am happy here. I don’t think I would be happy in DC though.
  • You should travel to Poland and report on your success with game. I went there 4 years ago and the quality of women in terms of appearance was the best I have seen anywhere (I have been to Brazil (Rio), Chile (Santiago), Hong Kong, and Italy as well as most major U.S. cities. Krakow and Cieszyn are unbelievable. I wasn’t very aggressive then, and had limited time, but I guarantee you’d appreciate the quality, and am wondering how much success you’d have.
  • I think you’re doing a pretty good job of leading an “examined” life. You seem a little hard on yourself, like you should be making a decision. Living in the moment is great, something I’ve learned from the 30 year old Colombian girl I’m currently dating, thanks to help from your blog 🙂
  • Expand your empire. Destroy your enemies. Hear the lament of their women. Pulverize poon perpetually. What the fuck? Settle down? Make more money. Do more lifestyle experiments (not necessarily inside the realm of game), those are always wildly popular and help to get wider exposure.
  • You need a worthy challenge. No matter what city you go to, even if you find one where the women are the most amazing, beautiful, sexy, cultured, sophisticated, and secretly-dirty creatures ever, you’d still eventually become dissatisfied as long as your objective is simply to bang them all. A worthy pursuit… to a point. You’ve cracked Mother Nature’s code. You can get sex easily and will always be able to. Well done. But as we know, “success with women is more disillusioning than failure.” Perhaps you’re disillusioned. You’ve conquered something that has been engineered to be hard. And how do you define “success”? Just banging? Maybe. But you’ve conquered that realm. So what if you move the goal lines?
  • I obviously don’t know you, so take it with a grain of salt, but you seem to have some attachment to the people in your life and moving across the world can wreak havoc on that. It has it’s perks of course, but be prepared for relationships with friends and family to take a hit.
  • Dude, go to NYC for 6 months. It’s increasingly where your readership is. And imagine how many more readers you’ll gain once you’re writing about gaming in NYC. You’ll tire of it eventually, but it would be a great change of pace. Not the cheapest place you could go, but may well pay back as an investment in your business.
  • American empire is crashing, things will only get worse for the majority of people. if you have the means to leave, which you do, i suggest you skip town.
  • I personally think the US is on the decline and it will take some time to recover. If you have a decent income stream, the quality of life can be much better in south america or some parts of asia. if my spanish was better, i’d move to colombia or buenos aires. but i don’t have an income stream.
  • Four months in DC, four months in a foreign country, four months somewhere else, every year. Variety is the spice of life. If you live in a foreign country for more than a year or so it will lose its luster.
  • Your view of American women is skewed because of your location. I lived in Virginia for 4 years when I was in college, and it was the worst experience of my life. Terrible women, terrible weather, terrible people. I moved to Los Angeles after I graduated and traveled the country for a half year. Los Angeles is filled with beautiful women, interesting people, and good times. I don’t see myself going anywhere for a very long time. Amazing place to be.

Complain to me about things you don’t like about me or my blog. Don’t hold back!

  • You cross the line at times. Hyperbolic comments about women are generally not true, and they feed the minds of men who are too stupid to appreciate the humor without taking it as commentary on the true nature of women. I prefer the company of men who want to reverse-engineer women’s minds in order to have lots of sex, yet are sophisticated, and not woman-haters (even if we hate that they don’t want what we want). The more misogynistic stuff leads to more idiots commenting. I enjoy a little misogynistic humor myself, but only when it’s pretty close to the truth. I understand that’s a tough trick to pull off though.
  • For the love of god no more tits or vaginas without warning. I like to read your blog at work and not get fired.
  • Release the Day game book already.
  • You’re getting old. Half of your posts are over my head. The Xtramoral stuffs good.
  • Too focused on easy girls. Not a big deal, since the principles are the same. But you do seem low on patience. I’m not looking for one-nighters myself. Also you need to eat better. Try watching Anthony Bourdain or something.
  • More photos in the posts man. It’s the 21st century and everyone wants to see a graphic even if your talking about some girl you banged and you don’t have a photo, throw in a dog photo or something, just to add something.
  • You could calm down on the criticism on american women. I think we get the picture. They leave a lot to be desired, but for most of us we have to figure out how to deal with them. Also some of your english is lacking in correct grammar. No big deal though.
  • Your writing style could use more professionalism.
  • I don’t like you stalling on projects. Hurry up and get that Day Game Booklet out!!!!!!!!!!!! Your taking your sweet ass time; I could be dead tomorrow in this busy ass city!
  • Stupid pop-up box on the website even after I have signed up for the newsletter.
  • I’d appreciate a greater frequency of posts.
  • I liked that dark side of game post, and the dialogue where you were emo and not sure you wanted to game anymore. Gaming dumb chicks kind of bores me, even if they are hot. Did any hot chick actually engage your mind? When did you start feeling something almost real? A little more vulnerability would be nice. When did you crack?
  • The misogynist posts aren’t really entertaining. If you don’t like women, why dedicate so much time to them? Monks seem quite content.
  • Your blog and Bang are bringing out the best (and worst) in me. Sometimes I’m not sure if I like what I am becoming but results don’t lie.
  • I think I might be attracted to you if I met you, but then I’d be quickly turned off because you don’t have a job.
  • In general, I’d like you to be more upbeat on your blog. When you talk about travelling, or your happiness at the success of your books/workshops, you write with a really clean and infectious enthusiasm. I want to take your workshops just to see you on top form gleefully clearly getting a high out of teaching and using microphone tech and stuff! However, when you talk about women it comes across as bitter and sometimes even poisonous.
  • I don’t get much out of the interviews. I go to your site because i dig your writing style and your attitude on life. Reading about other game heros and their amazing rock star lives is not interesting to me.
  • You don’t make your position about flip flops clear enough
  • Dude, let yourself go and travel more. I have been living overseas for 8 years and haven’t had the desire to go back even once since then. It is hard for me to understand your urge to return to seemingly “recharge the batteries” — family and friends there not withstanding. GOING BACK would be a total battery drain for me. I make my family and friends come visit me if they want to see me, otherwise tough shit. You heart is free… learn to follow it.
  • Firstly i would like to say that your abundance of coarse, Persian facial hair reinforces the cave-manish and Neanderthal-like nature of your thinking. Your greasy locks have also caused me to rescind my belief in Christianity, as i can not reconcile the fact that an egomaniacal misogynist such as yourself shares the same external visage as Jesus.
  • You have a blog? I that was an ad for your book.
  • I miss the economic posts, i would like to see your opinon on Obama, illuminati, etc. The only question I have is since your core business revolves about you bedding the ladies what will happen if you decide to setle down? Which will then be your income flow? Don´t leave all your eggs in one basket.
  • I don’t like your regular bashing of capitalism/consumer culture, which fuels your existence and is responsible for your income. Your complaints and writings on the subject just sound juvenile and uninformed, like some college kid who has never experienced anything in the world. You’re better than that. Your computer and the tools you use to disseminate your writing, your readers’ computers, etc. all come from this.
  • I find some of your viewpoints a little sociopathic at times, and think you could refrain from (for instance) writing things like how to cheat successfully. A real man ought not lie about that sort of thing; it’s a form of cowardice, not to mention unjust.

Stroke my hairy balls a little and tell me what you like about my work or things I should keep doing.

  • I enjoy your writing style, especially your stories like Medellin diaries. I generally agree with your world-view, and it is interesting to read your opinions and experienced based views, and realize that I have formed very similar views on my own, in my own life experience, (validation is perhaps the best term?). I like how you are not afraid to step out from behind the curtain so to speak, and show your readership a little about you the real human, verses hiding behind the internet. This seems to have been a theme for you all along but few others do it. On a side note I’m very impressed that you’ve been able to keep the momentum and mental energy flowing for over 5 years as it seems many fade out quickly. Keep up the good work. I think you are a quality writer and would enjoy reading your work (and future books) even outside of the genre of travel and game. Perusing the old DCB archives I noticed you used to give your opinions on all sorts of different topics and current events, which I enjoyed. I think I may have seen this on another comment, but it’s your personality which shines through your words, regardless of topic, that is entertaining and keeps me interested. Like talking to a good buddy, that i never met. Cheers.
  • Consistently entertaining PUA blog (among the very best), and because you’re willing to discuss odds and the amount of work necessary for the typical guy to get a lay, you have more credibility to me than any other source out there giving me advice on PUA. Thanks man!
  • I think you take a lot of shit in the comments that is undeserved. keep up the good work
  • You are god, your advice on game simply works, nuff said.
  • I’ve enjoyed your no frills approach to explaining how to get laid. You system helped me land more top notch pussy than I could have ever imagined. Taking girls out on dates to dive bars, places which I already frequent, has become a religion and helped me to break away from the crutches of one night stand and social circle game. I salute you for being the first to easily explain the process of “dating” women for the sole purpose of banging them. It has been life changing.
  • I like that your straight forward and to the point and tell things how it is. I like people that are real. You are real.
  • Your success is based on your truthfulness. (That’s why you have female followers, for example.) So keep it up!
  • You call it like it is. Your advice is geared more towards actual pickup rather than other PUAs who pretend to know a lot but just parrot out some meaningless advice and only seem interested in selling their next product.
  • I bought bang with no expectations and was blown away. I’ve lent it to friends but always ask for it to be returned (unlike any other book I’ve ever lent out). Recently I’ve used both your txt message and flying solo guides to get laid. I read your twitter and if you gave a field lesson in NYC I’d sign up in a second. In the beginning when you wrote that women should “serve” their men I thought “this guys clearly a misogynist”. But I realize I couldn’t have been more wrong. You don’t hate women, you love them. And those negative thoughts were the product of years and years of liberal feminist garbage being force fed to me. Castration is a side effect of living in NYC. After reading Bang I started to hit the gym, took a few Thai kick boxing classes, etc now I’m in amazing shape and I get laid like never before. Thanks for helping me get some testosterone back.
  • Its the best pua blog for motivation. I think that you are a great teacher. I have a feeling that most guys need help on that initial cold approach. Its that courageous leap that prevents most from accomplishing what they desire. If you can articulate what is or what is not going through your mind at that moment it would be beneficial to your readership. Break down that speedbump for us, and experience will teach us the rest.
  • I like your writing. I’m a former chief editor of a national magazine, still contribute regularly to magazines, and won’t put up with bad writing — yours isn’t. I would buy a piece from you if I were still in the market, and you were covering something I could use.
  • Keep up the dead on analysis of just how non-complex girls really are even though they pretend with great facades to be some sort of vault.
  • I like it that you put links in your posts that take me to older, slightly relevant posts. Nice variety of topics, and thanks for keeping politics out of it.
  • Always well written and perceptive. I think you could easily create a empire by taking you understanding of human interaction and using to teach business skills. How much fun that would be I don’t know, but I believe you have the option.
  • Bashing the bullshit sense of entitlement all western women have. Providing inspiration. Travel, language learning, writing, slamming pussy. Combining them. Don’t stop now.
  • You’re blunt. You”re aimed directly at my demographic. I don’t have to suffer through the Race-baiting that occurs at multiple other PUA sites. You”re humble. You’re willing to try to cover a subject throughly in one post instead of just mentioning one thing and dropping it. You seem chill.
  • You, unlike any other game blogger, talk about stuff regular guys can do. You are not all pretentious, I can see myself being like you in a gaming situation. Keep it real like that.
  • Congrats for creating and awesome forum, especially the travel forum. I am looking forward to try and meet up with some of the other users one day. But also the other subparts of the forum are good – that and the tim ferriss blog really keeps me updated with everything worth getting to know on the net and IRL.
  • I read “The Game” 3 years ago, which was significant to me because it made me believe that it was possible that a regular guy could do this successfully. But I was twisting in agony until I bought “Bang” two years ago. My socially life is twenty times richer. Seriously. Sincere thanks.
  • You’re writing style is excellent, as are your storytelling skills (several have had me riveted until the end). Overall your blog is fucking awesome. Seriously, you have no idea how much more of a man I’ve become since reading it. You were a large factor in my decision to quit my job and go traveling, one the best decisions I’ve ever made (albeit for different reasons than you usually have). My attitude towards and the way I treat women since I’ve been reading has changed, with positive results. Keep up the good work, we need more blogs like this.
  • Your travel adventures are the best. They are the optimal vehicle for you to discuss game, hone your story telling skills and have adventures. It allows others to live vicariously through you. You are an inspiration in that regards.
  • I like the semi-detached writing style of many of your anecdotes. i like your continued unwillingness to be phony. i like your commitment to reject others’ expectations for you and to do your own thing. i always appreciate your wit and candor. i’ve noticed an increase, however, in emotion regarding your exploits; namely, disgust. while on the surface, one would think it’s disgust with the women involved, i suspect a small degree of latent self-loathing is involved. this is new. examine this possibility, objectively.
  • I was randomly searching about argentina girls on google, which led me to your blog (and board), where i was first really introduced to real game, which led me to a trip in south america which was the best time of my life. thank you man.
  • “Bang” has the best practical outline for building things up from a foundational level that I’ve ever read.
  • I live a similar lifestyle as you so I find your blog fascinating. You talk about things I think about but never publicly say.
  • Your no-bullshit approach is extremely refreshing. Whereas many PUA Community guys make outlandish claims about being able to fuck any girl they want, I appreciate that you might put up a post (e.g. your Belo Horizonte post) where you say that even after years in the game you still have off-nights. This has undoubtedly given me more confidence than any of the hyped-up “Get laid now!” shit you see on other pickup sites. Although I can see some evidence of influences from famous PUAs in your work, your blog stands apart because it isn’t full of geeky acronyms and pretentious bullshit like you get on some sites — I’d much prefer to be a player than a “PUA”. I found “Bang” to be a very complete, analytical, straitforward resource which covered all the basics very well, and your posts about South America genuinely helped me with the girls when I travelled there. You have a dry sense of humour similar to my own which makes the blog consistently fun to read.
  • On the other hand, when you rip American girls I get a certain satisfaction knowing that you have female readers as well and by telling them just how incapable of pleasing a man they really are you’re bringing down their egos just that much more.
  • I like the way you are able to cover a myriad of topics, like balancing poignant insights on the human condition, with articles such as 30 types of pussy! (lol) I come to this site for entertainment purposes, procrastination (my failure at university will be attributed to you) and to gain an understanding into the internal machinations of men. What you write highlights my naivete with things and sometimes makes me sad. But you are to be commended for your honesty.
  • I’m a student in London, there are more nationalities represented by the student body here that the UN. Currently I have about 5 girls in the kitty, a Brazillian, a Californian, an English born Chinese, a German and a Thai. You’re observations have been proven again and again, the Brazillian is by far the most feminine, and knows how to treat a Man, whereas the Californian is awkward, un-feminine and cold, needing to drink herself silly in order to feel comfortable around a Man.
  • Your blog is good enough, out of the hundreds of millions of blogs out there, that I choose to read it and that I care about it enough to fill in this survey for you. What else do you really need?
  • You wrote one of the best game books ever. I hope to someday see a chart that shows a precipitous rise in STDs starting the day it was published that baffles scientists forever.
  • None of this inner game bullshit and how to become the “old spice man” by thinking positive and reading Ayn Rand. I like your approach where you run the numbers and tell it how it is.
  • You have definitely found a purpose in life, and you are doing a good job motivating others to live better lives.
  • Your game advice is brilliant and has absolutely gotten me bangs. For that I am very grateful and will continue to gobble up everything you have to say about how to fuck women. We seem very similar in outlook and I enjoy your travel stories and musings on American society. Your advice on gaming foreign countries has been invaluable (I have spent about 6 months in South America and find your insights to be largely correct) and something I haven’t seen anywhere else in the game community. Keep it up!
  • I love the dynamic between your blog and Roissy in DC; he lays out the theory; you show how it works in the field. Enough to hit his tip jar when he had one and to pay $ for Bang.
  • Despite what some of these lame beta supplicators complain about periodically, I LIKE that your blog isn’t just about “game.” Game isn’t just lines and routines. It’s about how you live your fuckin’ life and how you think. You get that, and mad props for it.
  • I continue to think that your greatest strength when it comes to writing about game is that you sound like a regular guy and that your conquests are attainable for the regular man, albeit with much hard work. You don’t pretend that you have always been a ladies man and you don’t pretend that you never make mistakes.
  • I enjoy your writing style more than anything and your cruel, dark, dry sense of humor. Funny posts that illuminate your indifference to the modern man make my day.

I’ve always thought of myself as a “normal” guy. If any man had my experiences, I figured, they’d make the same observations and come to the same conclusions. But then I noticed that some guys who have much more experience than me in some fronts (e.g. having more notches, living in a country longer than I have), do not see things as clearly as I do. Over the past couple of years I’ve realized that my gift is being able to make correct conclusions and generalizations in a short amount of time. I wrote Bang Colombia after six months of living there—just imagine if I can provide that caliber of advice after staying somewhere for only one or two months.

Thank you to those of you who took the survey.

“Dude, go to NYC for 6 months. It’s increasingly where your readership is. And imagine how many more readers you’ll gain once you’re writing about gaming in NYC.”

NYC is a very expensive place to live. There are a lot of 20 & 30 somethings who live in shoe box sized apartments in NYC b/c that can’t afford anything else.

“DC sounds like crap and it coloring your view of all America. I love Austin, Tx and the chicks are beautiful and usually cool, though of course we have our share of bitches, flakes, etc..”

Austin is cool but I think it is a bit overhyped. The city is actually not that big (it is only 750K, I don’t include the metro # since that includes the surrounding cities like Round Rock etc.), so you can tire of it quickly. So if you get tired of Austin, then you are shit out of luck b/c the rest of Texas kind of sucks, even Dallas & Houston.

“Los Angeles is filled with beautiful women, interesting people, and good times.”

Los Angeles has its own problems. The “LA Bitch” attitude is prevalent, at least among the good looking women. Plus, you will need a car to get around & the rents in West LA are pretty high. You can’t rely on public transportation as much.

“I think I might be attracted to you if I met you, but then I’d be quickly turned off because you don’t have a job.”

LOL! I hope this was written by a woman!

Overall, Roosh should just continue doing what he is doing. I want to hear about EE and how hard/easy is to get laid there if you are an American from a credible source, like Roosh, and not some beta idiot who is strictly p4p but wants to pretend like he has mad game online & got laid by hot EE chicks for free.

Roosh should become the “Anthony Bourdain” of getting notches in foreign countries.

Damn, I read those comments on your medellin video. Those Colombians do wanna kill your ass. But… I think that’s because a lot of the world has (or had) a very negative perception of their contry, and that video doesn’t do much to help their reputation.

I hate it how everyone is always spot on about Californian girls. Even Canadians in Vancouver were nailing that shit spot on. I definitely need to look for work out of state, it will be a dream come true if I find something out of the country.

Hey Roosh, The first comment hit the rail on the head. “After being born and raised in the US, I spent 2005-2009 in Peru. Never was I happier, or had more quality girls to bang, than there. I’m heading for Ecuador this coming January. I can’t wait to get back to that life.” The lower tiers, as I like to call them, are just better for guys hands down, and now the the U.S. is in long term economic decline it’s hard to justify staying here when you won’t have the best quality women or good economic opportunities. The U.S. is a shell of it’s former self. Our parents migrated here, but a lot of us are going to emigrate to greener pastures. I’ll always be tied to the U.S., a lot of friends and family live here, but I think in the future I’ll spend less and less time here.

Roosh, a good idea would be to make more videos of your travels. You will get a lot more visitors to your site if you include videos with your blog posts on travel.

Plus, you can always tell girls you are video taping stuff for a travel site. Instant DVH.
