Okay, I'll Consider Ukraine Again

A great story that will likely never make it to the Western mainstream. Note the difference in titles:

From ChinaSmack (Eastern viewpoint, includes pictures of said wife): "Chinese Man’s Life with Beautiful Ukrainian Wife Envied" - http://www.chinasmack.com/2014/stories/chinese-mans-life-with-beautiful-ukrainian-wife-envied.html

From BloombergView (Western viewpoint, hides pictures of wife not mentioned in title in link): "China's Lost Generation Finds Itself in Ukraine" - http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-12-15/chinas-lost-generation-finds-itself-in-ukraine

Primal Seduction: First Impressions

After reading this book and other materials like it, the big question is, is it worth the high price tag?

The short answer: no.

Don't get me wrong, the book is worth more than nothing. The section on mindsets is its most unique, but the obvious action plan for changing your mindsets is one you likely already know if you've consumed other materials: approaching, and thus using positive reference experiences to change said mindsets.

Also, outside the section on mindsets, the book isn't as thorough as other materials. For instance, if you want to learn Daygame, the Daygame Blueprint video series is an order of magnitude better than what this book offers.

Even the mindsets section isn't that unique. Some of it is similar to what Mark Manson covers in "Models: Attract Women Through Honesty." Given that the writer's website is called AuthenticPUA, I suppose the overlap should have been obvious.

I suppose this gets back to who you should learn Game from. While a relatively young, tall, good-looking white guy (such as the author) can teach you about Game, it's really no surprise that guys without those qualities - but similar results (such as the creators of Daygame Blueprint) - are better teachers.

For My Non-Western Readers

For some reason, Westerners (and particularly Americans) are regarded as wealthy by the rest of the world. While it is true that disposable incomes are higher in the West than most of the rest of the world, sadly, most of what Westerners put on is a front (in other words, the wealth you see is actually fake). This American TV commercial puts it best, with some good humor:

Sadly, I can verify from personal experience that the above commercial is truer than one might think. I should know; I pretty much grew up in said neighborhoods. These people seemed to be rich, but would then complain about the increase in gas prices. Obviously, that didn't make sense, since gas is a small portion of most Americans' budgets. But the fact that such a small increase could cause such headaches betrayed how sensitive their budgets really were.

"There Is No Point Telling Other People Your Goals"

Why? Because everyone is hoping you'll fail:

A New Weekly Schedule

For some reason, I keep coming home from work, wondering what I'm supposed to do (once the usual errands are done). It's time to set some goals and schedules for the first half of 2015 (before I leave for Poland):

1) Learn Polish
2) Make location-independent income (to supplement my retirement income and to have something to do)
3) Lift to the point that it looks like I lift, even with my shirt on
4) Develop r-selected Daygame ability (would rather flip girls from r-selected to K-selected than the other way around)
5) Improve bass-playing ability
6) Develop efficient online dating ability

Weekday schedule:
5a-8a - Lift, or on rest days, Work on location-independent income
8a-5p - Work
5p-8p - Daygame
8p-9p - Learn Polish, Cook
9p-5a - Sleep

Weekend schedule (if not traveling):
Saturday morning - Errands, must-dos, Learn Polish
Saturday afternoon - Daygame
Saturday evening - Work on location-independent income
Sunday morning - Leftover errands, must-dos, Learn Polish
Sunday afternoon - Play bass
Sunday evening - Text Daygame leads, Do efficient online dating (for practicing that and date Game)

Is (Insert Behavior Here) Beta?

Answer and thus note to myself:

If you have to ask, then it is, at least for you. Remember, I don't give a fuck = alpha.

Don't Trust Me

I read this morning that Andy Moore of Daygame.com had confirmed that Tom Torero (formerly of Daygame.com) had faked a "kiss-close" video (details here: http://daygame.com/cafe/index.php/topic,6196.0.html). Regardless of whether it's true or not (seems to be), the more important question is:
What does this mean to me?

The answer: something you should've known already - don't trust anything on the Internet 100%, not even me. Most importantly, verify for yourself as much as possible. Here's the application:

Not sure whether the Daygame.com method will work?
Honestly try it.

Not sure whether blue-pill dating strategies will work?
Honestly try them (though you probably already did).

Not sure whether red-pill dating strategies will work?
Again, honestly try them.

Not sure whether girls in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, or South America are better than Western ones?
Once again, honestly try them.

Now, as Tom Torero said, "less talk, more action!"

More Evidence That Looking for a Good Woman in the West is Like Looking for a Needle in a Haystack

Anecdote 1: The Failure of Return of Queens
Interesting that the site "Return of Queens" has now become "Kings & Queens". An excerpt from their new About page:

What I witnessed, and what has shaped my opinion on why RoQ is not effective and will not ever be is that:

1) Women don’t care enough about themselves to want to become better women.  Not all mind you, but most.  There were only a small handful of women who came to the site who actually seemed interested in becoming more feminine, more supportive of men, or embracing their natural gender roles.  Too many women parroted the social justice warrior and feminist talking points.

Anecdote 2: Why My Friend Who Bangs His Co-Workers, Subordinates, & Roommates is Successful With Girls:
It's classic IDGAF (I don't give a fuck) Alpha-male behavior and mindsets that most Western women find irresistible - mostly because the culture excuses them from resisting. Logically, of course, banging your co-workers, subordinates, and roommates is a bad idea, due to the potential consequences involved. Obviously, however, for him to fly in the face of that, is indeed IDGAF.

Once again, red pill hypotheses explain what purple and blue pill hypotheses don't.

While my friend has been engaged in this behavior for years, it's only with the red pill that I understand why it's happening.

An Explanation for Roosh's #1 Travel Tip?

Here's a possible explanation for why Roosh's tip to go to places where you don't look like the locals helps:

r-selection hindbrain: "This person of the opposite sex does not look like me, and therefore is unlikely to be related to me. I feel attraction."

This stands in contrast to:

K-selection hindbrain: "This person of the opposite sex looks like me, and therefore must be a member of the tribe. I feel comfort."

Of course, as anyone in the manosphere will tell you, looks aren't everything. But considering that most guys lean on the K-selection side (at least without Game), having an external factor (your look) help with the r-selection side may be worth some investment. That usually means relocating, since most folks are born in a place where they look like everyone else around them.

The Other Things I'm Going to Do in Retirement

Playing music:
Holy cow, I keep forgetting that I really used to be into playing music before I became a fully blue-pill beta male wage slave. Looking forward to playing stuff like this again:

Add cycling, skiing, golfing, longboarding, and playing golf.

Fuck yeah.

Purpose in the Manosphere

Could Agent Smith from the Matrix have been saying the below about the manosphere?

We're not here because we're free; we're here because we're not free. There's no escaping reason, no denying purpose, for as we both know, without purpose we would not exist. It is purpose that created us, purpose that connects us, purpose that pulls us, that guides us, that drives us; it is purpose that defines us, purpose that binds us.

And of course, purpose = reproduction, as Agent Smith demonstrates through his virus clones, and as Neo demonstrates by defending humanity.

(I was going to link to the video, but upon watching it, I think it actually distracts from the message.)

The Difference Between a Girlfriend and a Wife

Marriage is a business contract, for the purpose of raising kids. You must not let your feelings get involved. You must be ruthlessly logical, primarily to protect your kids, and secondarily to protect yourself. Accept that you may fail though, and be prepared for divorce if necessary.

If feelings are what you're looking for, then you're looking for a girlfriend, at most. Best not to convert a girlfriend of this type into a wife though - the basis of marriage should be logic, not feelings.
