Go To Brazil If You Look Like This Guy

Looks matter in Brazil, and they matter in a big way. If you have blonde hair, blue eyes, and an above-average appearance, you will have an easy ride. Girls will check you out, invite you to approach them by getting close to you, or just approach you outright.

I remember when my Danish roommate told me the story of how a girl approached him. He rebuffed her by saying he’d chat with her later, and then she approached him again later in the night by grabbing his arm tight, basically begging him to kiss her. That has never happened to me anywhere in the world, and most likely never will.

It’s no surprise that my roommate was not big on approaching (until meeting me, anyway). With his good looks he was never hurting for poon that he had to dive into the trenches and work on his game. So what he did was wait for a girl to check him out before going over to play cigarette game, in addition to maintaining a profile on Brazil Cupid. That’s all the game he really needed in Brazil.

But of course there’s a big catch: I banged about the same quality as him (I like to think better), though he had me beat in quantity. It’s true that I had to work harder by doing far more approaches than him, but by using tighter game, which in Brazil was approaching much more and not being needy, I could get women who were significantly better looking than I’m handsome, while he got girls on the same level as himself.

How do I feel about the extra work I had to put in?

Life sucks! It isn’t fair! Why God, why?!

Though honestly I’m fine with playing the hand that I was dealt, because I know there are a lot of guys in the world who have it worser off than myself (unless you’re a quadriplegic or look like the Elephant Man, you’re still in the game). At the end of the night when me and the Dane were talking about the girls we were banging, I realized the result is the same. If anything, by working harder I’m building a skillset that will stay with me long after our looks fade. The alternative, of crying about it and not getting laid at all, is simply unacceptable.

The Dane and I have become quite good friends (I think I mention him here more than Virgle Kent or Roissy). We have the type of bond where we can openly discuss our strengths and weaknesses, so one day he said to me, “I wish I had your game.”

Without skipping a beat I replied, “I wish I had your looks!”

If he did have my game, he’d be unstoppable, but that will never happen because his results will always be good enough, while on the other hand I’m overcompensating for a youth of zero pussy. He doesn’t have the ache like I do, that while much diminished is still bubbling underneath the surface. Thanks to game, uglier guys like myself can get girls just as hot, or hotter, than a guy who used to be a somewhat famous singer on MTV Europe. No lie.

I’ve seen this kind of stuff happen in Rio when hanging out with a taller, better looking wingman. The guy never approached because his economics of game are different that mine or yours. He used to be approached by girls – even followed them around after shrugging them off.

However, I’ve also hanged out with Latin guys who were hunters, probably similar looking to me, but who were aggressive and relentless. I have more respect for direct game thanks to them.

The latter had the balls and confidence to approach.

Confidence and determination is what builds a man.

Guess who got laid more?

Roosh, try NYC – a guy like you’re Danish friend does not fit the ideal of male desirability in NYC – guess what does? Tall and dark complexioned and dark haired. Blond hair and blue eyes are definitely considered less desirable there.

I don’t want to stress this too much because a good looking blond/blue guy will get a ton of attention in NYC as well, a guy who looks like you – if you de-hippified yourself and got a bit more urban sophisticate style – would get about as much, if not slightly more. So there you have it.

Where else is your look desirable? I would guess the entire anglosphere and maybe a few other places.

gringoed and dwayne i could not disagree more with you in regards to the ugly girl having it worse in comparison to the ugly guy.

no matter how ugly a girl is there is some drunk/desparate guy that is willing to take her home night after night just to get his rocks off. An ugly guy, on the other hand, even with good game is going to have a harder time trying to get laid…

This is why its important to work on your LOOKS as well as your GAME.

I just noticed a long nose hair coming out of my right nostril. That probably hasn’t been helping. And I need to… get a fresh haircut, Brush my teeth more consistently, control my acne better (wash face after exercise, wash pillow cases often, apply tea tree oil 3 times a day), Eat healthier, go to bed earlier, etc.

Getting advice from a female friend can help.

Roosh, to be honest I never felt you maximized your looks so I find it strange that you are bringing this up. I just figured you didn’t care to work on that aspect since you dogmatically believe game saves all.

You did grow your hair out long but always wore it in a child molester pony tail. It could have been way cooler if you had gone to a salon and gotten a legit haircut that didn’t have a middle part. Middle parts were so 90s.

Haha. This explains a lot. Some months ago, I rejected your theory about Rio not being pick-up heaven, but I do have to admit that I look similar to this dude – and am a Dane myself.

BUT what I don’t understand is that this guy does not have a lot of game?

In Denmark that look doesn’t really give you a huge advantage, so you still have to learn decent game in order to attract chicks and make cold approaches.

At the end, Roosh, you suggest that he was a somewhat famous singer on MTV Europe. Did he mention that to people in conversation, and did he get more pussy because of it?

That is a good look, btw. The photo seems to display the ol’ “red-eye” thing, and the hair looks medium brown. Is he blue-eyed and blond? The reason I ask is because I have green eyes and medium brown hair, and pale skin. I am wondering about a dye-job (blond) and colored contacts (blue). Would it be a worthwhile investment?

Learning game is just so liberating.

It gives a guy control over his life, even as looks fade. Confidence no longer has to deteriorate with looks.

Necessity is the mother of invention, and I’d much rather have to put in the time learning while young, then later in life when looks fade.

I’m not nearly as good looking as I was ten years ago, but I can now score almost at will (with a little determination to get out and socialize). Before, I would score when women decided that I would.

Its so much better to not have looks then it is to not have game.

I feel its also made me into a better man, and better person, all around.

If Roosh fixed his hair, lifted weights more seriously, and groomed that nasty body hair (use a clipper to cut it down to a “natural” lengthy), he’d be a definite 7. Which with his game would put him at play with nearly any woman.

Get a makeover, Roosh.

Roosh, I don’t know if you’ve done a post on this already, but maybe you can do one breaking down a typical Brazilian set compared to an American one.

Kind of break it down step by step what works best with B-girls. What kind of openers work best in that culture(casual/situational opener? Caveman opener?), what kind of humor they respond best to, what kinds of things to talk about to B-girls(assuming you speak Portuguese) to get the best response. Yeah, I know every B girl is different like anywhere, but I’m sure there are certain rules and tweaks that apply there that may not apply with American girls.

Have you considered going to Russia? I’ve heard that Russian women are huge in to Indian men, because they are seen as hard working and loyal. So girls over there are naturally attracted to guys with this provider trait than the local russian men. I know nerdy Indian guys hooking up with hot blondes out there, Since you look middle eastern you should try your luck there and take Dane with you. Dane will be forced to work on his game there, the roles will be reveresed smile

Depends where in eastern europe, In Bulgaria, serbia, montenegro, bosnia and croatia most people have dark features, even in romania dark features are quite common. and when It comes to countries like Poland, hungary, slovakia and even belarus, there are tons of dark haired natives aswell, and most blondes arent very blonde (naturally) but rather mousy/darker blond.

Eastern europe, anywhere you go, dont come close to a blonde crowd, Its not denmark, sweden, norway, Iceland, finland, Netherlands or even Many areas in germany (specially the upper north and Northwest), where you see like a sea of blonde people everywhere, and many of them being extreme blondes naturally.

The Nordic look has been and will always be the ideal of organic beauty. No matter how much the dark races hate whitey, they will always get with one.

Nothing special about dark dominant traits. You can find them everywhere in the world.

Whitey never needed game because he took what he needed by force.

We get those Anti-Semitic hoes hooked on Heroin and pimp them out like currency, a currency cheaper than the fake money we print off at the “American” “Federal reserve” which is backed by intellectual abstraction known to Goys as debt.

6 million heroic Jews died in the Shoah so that hatemongers like yourself could print such gibberish. I pity you for us Jews have our foreskin cutoff as a ritual. You stupid Goys get it cutoff because us Jewish doctors tell you to. 20% of sexual pleasure guaranteed gone at birth out of goyish ignorance!

I’m not so sure about Eastern Europe for dark looks – exotic isn’t the only issue, it’s which race/ethnicity is considered socially dominant or sexy/Alpha.

In SA, it’s white European types, in Eastern Europe Turks and Arabs are despised and looked down upon and the local men are perfectly macho so darker men don’t have the alpha thing going for them.

In effeminate Western Europe, the local men have given up machoness and so the legend of the dark Italian or Spanish lover who has retained his masculinity is considered sexy and Alpha, even if not particularly socially dominant.

So roosh you must look for places where dark Med type men are either the socially dominant group or have a rep for being Alpha, and the only places I can think of would be Anglo countries, where dark is sexy, which unfortunately have ugly women, and Scandinavian countries, and some parts of the United States, like New York and perhaps others. I guess you would strike out in Spain, Italy, etc.

Luckily for you you don’t have an Asian fetish because the dark type is least liked in Asia.

Sad thing is, the countries where the dark type is most admired are not necessarily the most fun/exciting countries where you would want to live or have adventures, so you’re probably stuck relying on Game.

there’s another part of this conversation. people are treating countries, whole regions even, as monolithic entitites. sure most brazilians probably dig blond hair and blue eyes and most asians go to great lengths to keep from getting any darker (i remember looking for sunscreen in thailand and finding only one tube of spf 55 and whole row of skin-lightening creams), but most isn’t all.

if you are going to spend some time in another country it makes sense to spend a little time researching different cliques and scenes. for instance, there might be girls in brazil who are into indie rock or hip hop and their taste might be very different from that of most other brazilian girls. it’s all about niche marketing these days.

With enough game, as Roosh proves, you don’t even need to do all of that. It just takes a bit more effort to break the ice.

Even a 4, with real ‘A level’ game, can be in play with nearly any woman.

Anyone without a physical disfigurement or some type of personal health / serious hygiene / sanity or miscellaneous social congruence deficiency, should be able to be rated at least a 4.

I’ve seen some old / ugly guys hook up with hot girls with ease. However, these guys aren’t going to pull the girls in one night. It takes more interaction, but once they have that access, the girl is as likely to be successfully gamed by them as by anyone else.

Also, to all of those people recommending Russia, be sure that you know what your talking about.

Russians are notoriously racist, even against darker / olive skinned white people. They call white people from the Caucus region “Blackasses”, and openly discriminate against them. They consider darker skinned white people worthy of their hate, not to mention the people that aren’t considered white. Of curse, this is a generalization, as its a large country.

I’d be surprised if the far eastern european countries were any different.

Roosh did not “prove” anything.

Just because as an american he is (or she he claims) able to go out and get drunk in latin america, and score with 1 of every 50 women he meets, does not make him an authority on anything.

Looks matter.

Being in shape matters.

Being confident and having a sense of humor matter.

Memorizing silly “game” rules made up by some random guy on the internet who is pissed off he didn’t get laid when he was a teenager is not a productive route to go.

Game will give you a point or 2 above your ability.

if your a 5 you will be able to pick up a 6-7 with a good mouth on you.

To get 9’s and 10’s being a 5 you still have ti be super cool ie Peter Doherty or have money and a good lifestyle.

Its a load of shit that having good game and being a average looking guy will get you 9’s and 10’s with out the lifestyle to back it up.

Absolutely true. I think some guys who say game isn’t working for them are just reaching a bit too high. Talk (Game) is important. But eventually you need something more than talk (to consistently get 9s and 10s).

I think Game will let practically any man with no obvious difigurement get 6’s and 7’s (LA scale).

Also true. If they can get them to actually meet them somewhere after the first encounter, their chances go way up.

In fact, for some of these guys, just the fact they got them to actually agree to meet up later is amazing by itself.

Some of the people here, and indeed Roosh himself, are just plain retarded.

All of this advice about “game” is just plain stupid, and if followed will just make the reader a neurotic douche like Roosh, who huts on dozens of girls until he finds the one 6 who can give him a knob slob. Its called the shotgun strategy, and is nothing new.

Want to get girls? Its not complicated.

First, get in shape. You dont have to use roids, but get decently ripped and run/swim for cardio.

Next, have a talent/interest, something like playing guitar is good.

Finally, instead of picking up women at bars/clubs, a much better approach is to do volunteer work. It is a gold mine. Anytime you are at a soup kitchen or greenpeace or habitat for humanity or whatever, the girls are much more open and assume that you aren’t just a asshole who wants to get in their pants. Their defenses are down.

The only thing better than volunteering is walking around a park with a labrador puppy.

Sure, I will nail the occasional bar/club girl, but that stuff gets real old real quick, and will leave you feeling really cynical.

Much better to get a quality woman who you feel comfortable with as another person, instead of thinking of women as “cum dumpsters.”
