Living In A City With Pad-Worthy Women

In DC I usually go out in the U Street area. It has a good mix of slutty girls, pseudo-hipsters, and Ethiopians, without too much of the late-night thuggish ruggish bone element a few blocks away in Adams Morgan (even if it didn’t I’d still pass because of the general sloppiness in the women that party there).

Recently I was at the apartment of a friend of a friend, located only one block away from my favorite spot in U Street. It was small but nice, with a little bar, a large bathroom that would make for airy dumps, and a view from the living room of street action below. I went home that night and fantasized about having my own apartment in that area, and how much better my life would be. I would get more one-night stands due to better logistics. I could cook for women and romance them in my bedroom. I could maintain normal relationships. Even with my current income I could rent that apartment without having to eat cans of beans more than twice a week.

Then I asked myself, “What girl have you met in DC that you would be eager to bring to your new pleasure palace?” Up to that point every DC girl I had banged recently with at their place, in a car, on a lady friend’s couch, or in a park next to American University. My question was tough. There was that young Italian girl I saw briefly but we were more fuck buddies than a couple. The Spaniard was just my type but she didn’t stay in the city for long. All the others were cheap thrills without long-term potential. The more I thought about it the more I realized that there is no girl living in DC who I would want bring over to my pad, spend time with them, and then clean up afterward. This is in addition to overpaying for DC rent (compared to other cities, anyway).

A couple days later I spent time with an old friend. He asked me what work I needed to do that required me to stay in the area. I had no answer. “It seems like you already got your dose of family and friends,” he said, “and now it’s time to hit the road again.” I had only been back for three months, but he was right. Besides a handful of people, there is nothing holding me here (all my hobbies and work can travel with me). During the summer I was using the excuse of sleeping with random girls to delay having to make a real decision of what to do next.

After talking to my friend I got home at 6am and stayed up for another hour making a list of things I have to do before leaving again. I accepted that nothing here captures my imagination, or even motivates me to work hard or be a better man. There is no comfort in the growth zone, and there is no growth sleeping with another American slut. It’s a waste of my prime.

I finally made a choice, selecting a starting country using a very similar process that Eddie Murphy used in Coming To America. I plan to be there early January. I need two months to prepare and then another month to get through the holidays. I’m already starting to experience the feelings of excitement and fear that came before my previous trips—two emotions that disappear within the first week in my new home as I learn how to adapt and carve out a routine that keeps me sane and healthy.

I’ve always thought I’d choose the lifestyle I’d want to live, yet for some reason I feel like it has chosen me instead.

Well maybe you should finally visit EE. All the whores you want (for free since you are a foreigner) and very cheap. Romania or Moldova is perfect for your style.

I was going to say that EE should be the next location. The only problem is the diversity of languages one would have to master in order to run game. I’m guessing Roosh picked a location somewhere in Asia.

That’s how I’ve been feeling too. Don’t waste your time here and just go. You’ve got less to deal with than most people and can leave anytime. There is nothing at all wrong with moving around, but American culture tells us we should stick and settle for a while.

Definitely check out some new countries or continents to see what you like. You know as well as anyone else that living abroad is incredibly cheap.

Roosh,

I am disturbed by the increasing frequency of your blog posts about how much you passionately despise American women. When you say things like, ‘There is no girl living in D.C. who I would like to bring over to my pad,’ it kind of implies that you’ve met and fairly evaluated every girl in D.C., which you clearly haven’t. You are also not factoring in the issue of quality women being instinctually repelled by men who clearly dislike/have no respect for us, except for the pleasure that we bring you in the sack. A beautiful, intelligent, interesting girl is not going to spend three minutes talking to a guy who lives in his parents’ basement and spends his time writing about how much he hates women, with the occasion post thrown in about his shitting habits, so it makes sense that you are only interacting with the very low-quality ones.

I’m not trying to personally insult you or be a “hater,” because I do consider you a friend of sorts. I’m just stepping in to defend myself and my friends, because I used to enjoy reading your blog and now I just skim through the first paragraph and then stop reading when it becomes clear that, once again, you’re just going to spend the rest of the post spewing hatred at American women. We get it; we are the bane of your existence. We’re stupid, ugly, fat, uninteresting, flip-flop-wearing cum dumpsters. How many more times do you need to write this in order to drive your point home?

Hung Up On The Opener
By Roosh

Guys always ask me the same question when I return from approaching a girl.

What did you say?

Specifically, they want to know what my opening line was. I ask the same question to other guys too actually, and it�s because the nature of the game dictates that the opener is the hardest part. You always want to know how this guy started an interaction with a cute girl.

This isn�t a bad question to ask because it can give you ideas, but understand that what you say is less important than if you actually say it. When it comes to approaching, doing is far more important than doing right. And I know this because my off-the-cuff openers are usually pretty retarded. The last opener in a coffee shop that resulted in at least a number was, �You look like you are having a hard time studying,� and at night it was, �You should have given him your number� (referring to some random dude who walked away). These aren�t even worthy of being copied because they are just average, but the fact that these casual lines got me in meant that the better parts of my game could now take over. The lack of an award-winning opener should never prevent you from talking to a girl you like.

After sharing an opener with a guy that resulted in some type of number or fluid exchange, you�d think he would want to immediately try it out. But he doesn�t�he just stands there, wondering how that could have possibly �worked� as cute girls walk by. Guys hung on words are waiting for the perfect line to deliver on the hottest girl. That�s not game�that�s playing the lottery, waiting for the one in a million jackpot to bring you riches. Approaching is more like the poker grind, where you lose a majority of your hands dealt but can still go home a big winner.

P.S. If you liked this post then I think you will like my book Bang, a collection of simple but powerful techniques, moves, and lines that make it easier for the average 20-something man to be more successful with women.

Roosh did you ever consider contacting predator or beppe on where they have been or would they even join ya,,, heck even that norweigian dude you had the medellin diaries with…. maybe have a team like the famous tango and cash… etc..

Europe in january gonna be tough, thailand would be nice and hot. You’ll get to bang a tonne of aussie chicks, and they love our accents. Just be careful for the ladybodys,,, they look uber sexy and tempting, but you don’t want to play the crying game song in your head. Then in the summer, you go to Europe. Croatia is expensive to a degree. But you would love it as it is a coffee shop type of place. People over there sit 2 hours to drink a coffee and smoke. In august, Italians have a month off called fera gosta I think,, you can try to bang italian tourists in croatia or greece etc… But from my experience, Italians speak English the worst from any other European country. Even the French speak better English. So, that may be a problem.

Before you go, check out dating sites like the free one,, plentyoffish.com. Message some Romanian broads, or Bulgarian. See if any bite. Of course, you probably know this…. Either way, buenos suerte!

Haha. Great post…albeit a little discouraging for those of us that live in DC. I realized (again) when I was in Spain in early September just how my foreigner appeal works with the Spanish ladies, even in the presence of my Spanish ex-girlfriend who I was there visiting. I tell ya, those girls at the Madrid airport sure are friendly. wink

I’m thinking a trip to the Canaries is in order this winter. I’m worried about the strength of the USD against the Euro.. thinking I should change money now and not wait until Dec/Jan.

Oh, and Laura, GTFO.

If this is the same Laura from Roissy’s blog, then she is some middle aged broad who gets her feelings hurt by poor old Roosh’s (and everyone else the game-o-sphere’s) accurate assessments of American women.

While I don’t agree with Roosh on everything he says about American women, I do agree that American women need no defending.

Their shitty stereotype is 100% earned.

Roosh — I am an American male and I endorse Laura’s statement. I’m only doing this to diminish the power of your sophisticated refutation of her argument (your mentioning that you fornicated with her). You used to be a scientist, right? Unfortunately in all your experiments you will never be able to control for the fact that you hate women, and that most women know this. You will never be able to control for the fact that most worthy women want to be treated as equals. You will never be able to control for the fact that your putative purpose in life is repulsive to most people.

you seem to have contempt for the american women you call “sluts” for the no reason other than they are easy to sleep with and they love sex. But then you don’t seem to like Argentine women because they are hard to sleep with. What exactly is it that you want? You seem to have the same behavior as a chick who can’t seem to make up her mind. Clearly the Lord is unjust!

All you pussies giving roosh flak for his views are obviously still boys and will never be men.

From what I’ve gleaned from this blog, Roosh has hit the nail right on the head. His views may be contradictory but they are still the views of a man who “gets it”. Life isn’t black and white but instead a shade of grey. Calling him out on his contradictions is indicative of a lack of life experience or just plain ignorance and stupidity.

You’re not supposed to respect a woman right when you meet her. You’re supposed to try and fuck her as fast as humanly possible. If you succeed, she’s not worthy of any respect. If you can push her to the point of uber-horniness and she still won’t put out, you may be on to something with her. Sadly, this never happens.

This is the problem with Western girls. You don’t need to try that hard and they just spread because they think it doesn’t matter. But it does ladies, it definitely does.

My problem (and probably Roosh’s) is that every time I meet a girl who I feel has a great personality and could imagine myself spending my time and money on, I end up fucking her a little too easily. This doesn’t allow me to value her in any way at all. The funny thing is that I don’t even consider myself a ladies man so I can only imagine how many other dudes have hit and quit. Her inability to display value and restrain her whorish self devalues her sharply in my eyes.

This approach may be flawed and may lead to a lonely future for myself and quite possibly Roosh as well, but I’d rather live this way than in blissful ignorance like the rest of the chumps out there. Theres no point in working hard, getting a cozy, comfy, hoochie friendly pad just so you can bring one of these worthless hags over for a quick romp. The only time you’ll be in need of this stuff is if you’re in the market for a wife and if you’re in the market for a wife then you need to have your head examined.

Pedastalizing a Ho isn’t exactly my idea of a happy life. But if you’re a man with “confidence” and who’s also “mature” then by all means slip a ring on her handjob chafed fingers, kiss her on her cock gobbling lips and be proud of yourself and the future mother of your children.

I might get crucified but I think Roosh needs a challenge, fuck the excuses. I’m talking about a challenge. Like something Neil Strausseque or Mysterque. Maybe go out and see how many “10’s” you can bang in a month. See how many times you can get a girl to buy you a drink, record some of your footage for shits and giggles(I did this a few times)

I mean there is always another level to this shit. Its obvious Roosh doesn’t want a relationship, so why not amp up the game. Guys like Mystery do it all the time (5 for 5 challenge, Banging 10 chicks in a month challenge etectra)

p.s. Roosh get back on your game shit though brother, we need you to bless us with some tips of the trade, their lot of guys in the field right now, trying to smash these ho’s I mean ladies

Roosh get the fuck out of DC, it’s obvious that that city is poison to you. I know you have things like great friends that are making you reluctant to leave, but at the end of the day you are not happy there and it’s painfully obvious from your blog posts. You don’t have to leave the country, just go to virtually any other big city in the US and it’ll be a major upgrade (some more so than others of course).

If DC sucks enough to make a guy who gets laid more than 99% of guys unhappy with his life then I am never going to set foot there again.

Oh and I’m not talking about traveling for a while and then coming back to be miserable until you can leave again. I mean get out of DC and stay out. Set up a home base somewhere else and only come to DC occasionally when you feel the need to visit your friends there. I can’t believe you haven’t come to this conclusion yourself already.

It seems like you’re a fan of NYC… It would be awesome to see you take that on. I bet you could conquer New York, and it seems to fit a lot more with your personal style. There is plenty of foreign bohemia/cafe culture to be found. And obviously the chicks are eminently bangable. Even before I had game I did pretty well in NYC.

You seem lost roosh. Now that you’ve slept around you’re mostly over it. You’ve changed your lifestyle to the roaming writer which seems to make you happy. But you’re still struggling with where you will be happy. Either emigrate already or find someplace awesome in the us. step up, pay the bigger rent not because of the girls, but because that rent puts you somewhere fun in a city you like.

roosh I think you wrote in bang that something can’t be a dream if you achieve it. You’ve pretty much achieved the dream of many guys; to consistently bang the women they want. No matter where you go in the world, you will likely succeed at this, although it will require adaptation.

If you go to Asia, it will be too easy for you. You will twitch your finger and a girl will jump on your dick. But doesn’t game teach that being a challenge is what’s attractive? Women will become like senators to the Godfather, so many nickels and dimes in your pocket. The end game, the game of no game, is to not game.

#4 I would suspect Chi Cha, Marvin, Local 16, etc. Overall U street is ‘meh’ in my opinion (from a weekend perspective). The bars are crowded – that’s about it. If you’re a guy like me (natural game/charisma) you’ll have more success on the Georgetown waterfront, Dupont, and even over the river in Arlington/Old Town Alexandria. You’ll meet just as many people that have an international flavor if you talk to enough people.

I would like to echo #8 that the readers probably prefer game tips and stories about life in the game that we can relate to.

I’m not sure of the international composition of your readership but I suspect mostly it’s guys who live in the US/Western society who have to deal with the Western woman… and their downfalls. We suffer along with you but instead of lamenting let’s discuss strategies to meet the quality ones still out there (down to earth, etc.). Not to keep chiming on a theme of other posters but DC is a very limited and perverse bubble and microcosm of the US and akin to judging a entire culture by talking to one person from that culture. I don’t hestitate to point this out since I have had the good fortune to travel and spend extended amount of times in multiple regions/cities of the US.

I also hate to admit being a gamesman causes one to look at women differently… dating multiple women and hearing the stories I’ve heard I’m not thinking that tying myself down to any particular one may be the answer… a man who has options will always walk the fine line between the need for exciting new flings and the stability and a deeper connection. Some men try to have both (albeit it becomes risky and not always done successfully ala Tiger).

Of course it’s your blog and you’re free to do with it whatever you want and we’ll keep reading your work because it’s a fascinating read. I’m a big fan of the lifestyle articles ala Naughty Nomad you posted recently.

I think Laura is right–saying that she’s bitter at you because you guys slept together doesn’t really address the issue. Which is that if you really hate all American women then most likely quality girls won’t want to talk to you or have anything to do with you, and you do get stuck with the dumb girls who wear flip-flops.

“My problem is that every time I meet a girl who I feel has a great personality and could imagine myself spending my time and money on, I end up fucking her a little too easily.”

This is absolutely not my problem — yet. But this is exactly the American paradox. Girls are all whores in America. It is impossible to respect them and to fall in love.
