  CBD Oil
Posted by: bigbadpua - 02-21-2020, 09:49 PM - Forum: Lifestyle Forum - Replies (16)

Bought some CBD Oil today. There are shops for it opening everywhere in Europe right now. Supposed to help with several ailments, I hope it helps against my chronically tight/hurting back (been trying everything from swimming, gym, yoga, foam roaling, massages and special exercises from youtube over several years). Will post if it works. 

Anybody else tried it for various reasons?

  Why are Italians so well-liked across Europe and just in general?
Posted by: Here Are Words - 02-21-2020, 02:10 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (28)

I notice that people might complain of British tourists and the French in general but Italians seem to be very well-liked. Spaniards are infatuated with them and practically see them as their superiors in every way while Northern Europeans see them as almost acceptably exotic.

Eastern Europeans are desperate to be like them and Slavic women worship Italian culture.

Every nationality in Europe has a complaint against it or a bad stereotype but Italians dodge all that.

Plus in America they are worshiped and aspired to (mafia, Italian food, fashion).

  Vaping abroad
Posted by: bigbadpua - 02-21-2020, 01:45 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (5)

I know for some peope this seems like a menial topic, but I really like to vape, i.e. using E-cigarettes. My research showed that so many places outside of Europe dont technically allow vaping. In countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Brazil, Argentinia, Brazil, etc. E-cigarettes are not legal. But there is a difference in practice, meaning the law is not enforced and there are shops everywhere. If you have any personal experience regarding this matter, please share. And no "Just stop vaping" advice haha. Particularly interested in the situation in SEA.

  Latin America First Time Advice
Posted by: Kano1993x - 02-20-2020, 11:08 PM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (9)

Hello gentlemen,

I've set my heart on a trip to Latin America and I'd like to try gleam some advice from the more experienced travellers too that part of the world. My travel history includes the South East Asia circuit, the eastern asian countries and India to give you a rough idea of my experience outside my home nation. My travel style is a mix between hostels and private accomdation. I know theres a stigma attached to the "Dirty backpackers" from the older lads on this forum, but to be fair some of the craziest nights out and wildest sex adventures i've encounted have been through the hostel scene. 2 Guys vs 4 girls in a 6 person mixed dorm orgy being my personal favourite on Koh Lanta lol (Respect to my German comrade that night, the british and the germans have a hostile history no doubt, but when the odds was stacked against us together we slew the pussy that night... out numbered 2 to 1)

However I do prefer to get away from the typical itinerary and spend time off the beaten track and ofcourse as a red blooded male on the road in foreign lands... indulging with the native women is a tempation not to be ignored. I'm predominantly looking at South Amercia, I'd be grateful for any tips on some of the countries you guys had the best time in. Coloumbia seems like a good location to fly into. However my spainish is non-existent. Do I need to take the time to learn the basics before heading out? or will I get by on english and hand gestures alone?

Any general tips on routes / cities to check out and advice for a first timer in that part of the world world be greatly appreciated.

Cheers gents.

  Events in Germany and small city fests
Posted by: OldSojer - 02-19-2020, 02:44 PM - Forum: Travel Forum - No Replies

I highly recommend this website

Veranstaltungen in Deutchland - Events in Germany

You might not be able to access it directly in some countries, eg Philippines for some reason, but if you go through a German proxy website like https://www.proxy-service.de/ you can get in.

The site is only in German, but you can either figure out the terms (feste are festivals) or right click to Google translate the site and do searches according to category or place.  It's the most comprehensive events site for Germany.

From May until October there are hundreds of small city and town beer or wine festivals in which a tent is set up, music is played, traditional German fest food is served, and the beer and wine flows.  There are usually events set up for different age groups, different music styles, dance etc, but also many people share the big tent.  Good place to meet people on the shared tables.

Any of these smaller fests are better than the overrated, overcrowded, and very expensive (for lodging) Munich Oktoberfest

  Article: Attraction inequality and the dating economy
Posted by: Rottenapple - 02-18-2020, 07:56 PM - Forum: Game Forum - Replies (42)

Very interesting article on the dating economy based on dating app stats: https://quillette.com/2019/03/12/attract...g-economy/
 

Some quotes:

"A data scientist representing the popular dating app “Hinge” reported on the Gini coefficients he had found in his company’s abundant data, treating “likes” as the equivalent of income. He reported that heterosexual females faced a Gini coefficient of 0.324, while heterosexual males faced a much higher Gini coefficient of 0.542. So neither sex has complete equality: in both cases, there are some “wealthy” people with access to more romantic experiences and some “poor” who have access to few or none. But while the situation for women is something like an economy with some poor, some middle class, and some millionaires, the situation for men is closer to a world with a small number of super-billionaires surrounded by huge masses who possess almost nothing."

Quartz reported on this finding, and also cited another article about an experiment with Tinder that claimed that that “the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men.”

-->Men who know the dating game in the west knew this already, but it's nice to see it in stats. Few men get it all, while the rest are mainly chumps fighting for a small piece of the cake.

"Yet another study, run by OkCupid on their huge datasets, found that women rate 80 percent of men as “worse-looking than medium,” and that this 80 percent “below-average” block received replies to messages only about 30 percent of the time or less. By contrast, men rate women as worse-looking than medium only about 50 percent of the time, and this 50 percent below-average block received message replies closer to 40 percent of the time or higher."

-->If you are ugly, you don't stand a chance on online dating sites basically.

"Just as much, consider that we live in a monogamous culture, and so the 20 percent of men who are regarded as attractive can only be in committed relationships with at most 20 percent of women. We may just as well pity the rest of the women, who are destined to be in committed relationships, if they pursue a relationship at all, with someone who they regard as unattractive."

-->Maybe 20 years ago, I don't think this represents current society anymore. 

"The only villain in this story is nature, which has molded our preferences so that this tragic mismatch of attraction and availability occurs."

-->This is the red pill lessons as always, learn about the rules of nature, learn how to use em in your favor and see through societies attempts to blur these realities. 

"The relative perceived attractiveness of younger women vs. older can be explained by the higher fertility of younger adult women. The libido gap can be explained by the different mating strategies instinctively pursued by the distinct sexes."

"The revealed preference among most women to attempt to engage romantically only with the same small percentage of men who are perceived as attractive is consistent with the social system called “polygyny,” in which a small percentage of males monopolize the mating opportunities with all females, while many other males have no access to mates. Again, this will not come as a surprise to scientists. The evolutionary biologist David P. Barash wrote an article in Psychology Today titled “People Are Polygynous,” citing extensive biological and historical evidence that throughout most of history, our species has practiced “harem polygyny,” a form of polygamy."

-->Interesting facts here, didn't know that term, but indeed this has been the standard throughout history and still is the standard in most of Africa. 

"Young people enter the equality-inducing institution of monogamy later and later or not at all, spending more time in a chaotically unequal polygynous dating world. Monogamy itself is weaker, as divorce becomes easier and even married people often report encountering “dead bedrooms” in which one or both spouses feel no obligation to give a partner who they do not regard as sufficiently attractive access to sexual experiences. Religious belief is in constant decline, and with it declines the belief in the dignity of celibacy or the importance of anything other than hedonism (sexual or otherwise). Even fairy tales that for centuries helped us understand how to live charitably with each other are disavowed and cultural tastemakers like Time Magazine and the BBC denigrate them as sexist."

-->The author knows what's up. Possible forum member right there.

Check the comments as well, there are some interesting remarks there.

Thoughts?

  Spain
Posted by: Greavsie - 02-18-2020, 07:51 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (41)

What's the general consensus?

I've lived here on and off over the years, but never really felt that i gel that well. I like the Spanish, speak the language to a reasonable degree, just find them hard to crack. They all seem super friendly and approachable, at first you'll think you're going to crush, getting numbers and invites regularly, but i think a lot of it is just the superficial friendly vibe you get everywhere here. 

The culture is very well socialised, people have got what come across as good social skills. But ultimately i find them somewhat fake and insincere, in comparison to Northern European cultures at least. 

I've also found Spaniards can be shifty, and untrustworthy, and prone to outright lying in business matters, renting properties and such forth. Had enough bad experiences with them moving goalposts on rents, bills, details etc, and then outright denying they have to your face, that it's kinda burned me re my overall opinion on the culture. 

All that said, it is a beautiful country, great food, lifestyle, general ease of living etc. Outside of the GloboHomo hotspots, it's very safe, and has a wholesome social fabric that is lacking in more 'diverse' West. 

Re game - I think there's a lot of thirst from Spanish guys, and the overall vibe is quite matriachal. Girls here worth their salt all seem to all have a raft of thirsty Orbiters, constantly being introduced to them by some cousin or other in their large social circles. Add the recent Tinder, IG thotting aspect, they have an almost impregnable abundance of choice. 

You can get numbers pretty easy here, but the flake rate is pretty brutal. A Spanish number from a really chatty and receptive girl in a bar, is far less likely to respond than a somehwat cold interraction from an Eastern European imho. Again, just takes getting used to. At first i'd be shocked, having had what seemed absolute gold interractions flaking, it's just an aspect of the culture. Friendly, sociable vibe plus high social skills as standard, plus superficial nature of society and female's abundance of choice = a lot of flakes.

Be interested to know if there's any other members here, or any general impressions of the place from others that have lived here. War stories from long weekends in Barcelona, Benidorm et al, not so much.

  Montreal Datasheet
Posted by: AnindoSolid - 02-18-2020, 06:04 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - No Replies

I have been travelling to Montreal for a long time, here is a datasheet from my experience for guys who have never been or are thinking of going.

Room and Board
Air bnb is pretty cheap if your coming from a another city even cheaper in the winter, from my experience, is the better option to hotels, unless you have a lot of money to blow. The best neighborhood to get a room/apartment is Plateau/Mont Royal as its centrally located to where some of the best venues in my opinion are.

Transportation
You will mostly rely on public transportation which are pretty good but I believe they don't run 24hr. So you will mostly use taxi for late night transportation which is fairly priced, less than 20$ if you live in a central location relative to the venues.

Food
Food in Montreal is some of the best food I have ever had in Northeastern America. Some of my favorite  restaurants location were on St. Denis street from Ontario street  all the way down Boulevard de Maisonneuve. You can walk on this street and find restaurant suites your taste. Old Port  also has some good restaurants.

Women
Looks wise, majority of the women are 6s, 7s and  8s, seeing a 9 is not rare in Montreal. Guys are also well put together and look good, sometimes you can feel a sense of competition, but it can be just an illusion. If you dress well, look average to slightly above average, and have well calibrated aggressive game you will do well.

Day game
If you want to put more focus on day game in Montreal, its best to stay for at least a Month, language can sometimes be a barrier because some of the women are not 100% well versed in English. But its not a major hindrance, if you open in French and transition to English, they will appreciate that and continue chatting with you. Some women are bilingual and Anglo, so language is not a huge factor. You will run into a lot of French Immigrants in Montreal, so if French women are your thing, there is high possibility of getting with one. From my experience, women are generally friendly and they will engage with you in conversation. The best places to meet women during the day;


Old Port especially around Notre Damme Basilica
Any Subway train and bus stations that is in your way or routine (underrated places to meet women)
Saint Catherine street - The shopping area of the street and the place called Place Ville Marie
Star bucks- Look up a star bucks in your vicinity and post up, there is bound to be a good looking woman to meet. My favorite ones are the Starbucks on Saint Laurent, on Saint Catherine street and Saint Denis St. but there are more.
Underground city
La Eaton de Montreal
Complex dejardins
Museums and landmarks for example, the museum of fine art and the top of Mont Royal

Night Game
Meeting women at night is also quite effective, as a significant amount of women actually go out to potentially meet men. You have to maximize your looks and physique if you are average or slightly below average looks wise. You don't have to necessarily be built like a body builder, but having a cut mascular figure and wearing cloth that fits your frame can go a long way in night game especially while dancing. From my experience, using witty banter and sarcasm like I do in the U.S doesn't work, as the Quebecers and French  women tend to take them seriously and it kills the set(could be different if you are fluent in French?).


The best way to game these women is to be fun and direct, dance with them and escalate if you are in a dance venue. If a woman has danced with you and kissed you, lead her to a spot in the venue where you can sit and talk. Be more flirty/direct while building comfort(let her open up and do most of the talking)  suggest her place, if she pulls the friends objection, meet her friends and sort of join the group and move with the group. Eventually end by going to her place.  From my experience, if the girl is feeling you, the social circle will role with you. Regardless, social circles seem to be more open to the lone wolf outsider in night venues if he is fun and has good vibes in Montreal. If social circle is not a big hindrance then suggest her place directly from the venue, if hers is impossible then suggest yours. The best venues I have been to are;


Clebard
Tokyo bar- Especially on Thursdays
La Rogue- Go early 
Philemont
Flyjin- its a restaurant that turns into a music venue, go while its still a restaurant and stay until its transformed into a music venue
La Tulip- Tends to have a lot of mature women, but its a fun venue
Mayfair
Fiztroy
Mmlee
There are probably more venues that i have not been to. If you like more Anglo women, you can bar hope on Crescent street as well.

  Failing to do the One Thing. (Life feels unreal)
Posted by: MobyRichard - 02-17-2020, 05:56 PM - Forum: Lifestyle Forum - Replies (6)

Dont know what to say.

I was ‘lurking’ a long time, reading. Then recently I joined this website. I do not know if its okay for my first post to be a thread. I hope is okay.

patience its difficult to write this. 

My problem I made alot of mistakes in my life, maybe bad choices with work and money - I live like an ageing student, is what my family says, 

easy jobs - I hate them but i love my freedom, 

anything I save, I go travelling, I game girls, I have great sex with them alot - 
I go home I do shitty jobs, make sure not too much stress and save again. 

Go somehwere else and meet great girls, a few weeks of fun, back to relaxing at home, 

Im not very good at work, but I go along okay, 
I can only do a job for 6 months before I quit or get fired anyway. 
Life like Im 23 years old. I was older early 30s, but I look young and abroad sex with great 18, 19 year olds all the time.

My family hates this. 
Always trying to give me problems. It got bad, whenever I speak next to them they go quiet, ignore me and smile - when I say what is the problem, say nothing, they just stay quiet. 
Well fuck this. We ended up shouting in the street. They told me dont come back.

Then I had a car crash and broke my hip, my knee, my leg. It was bad. I had to take machines to cut me out, a long time. I get nightmares. Because it was my fault I could not get any money for it.

My family only blamed me. We still dont speak. It was a surprise because of how bad it was but they wouldnt forgive.

My friends were always realaxed easy people but when it went wrong they walked away, 
if they ask me how Im doing they hear me - its bad, I need help, Im unhappy 
- first I was angry with them. that they walked away Now I understand. They werent my friends I know that now. .
But they could have been my friends later.
But my mind went wrong, what happened in my car and the pain and evrything, I still have problems sleeping. It was hard to be a friend for them after it happened. I find it hard to be relaxed.

My country is in Europe but a not-good part of Europe, there is no charity and the little charity depends on the taxes you paid. I didnt pay any taxes. My body hurts but I have to work.

I have a job 4 hours a day washing in a kitchen. The old ladies I work with like me. One says "you may not like this, me saying this, but you are good at washing the dishes'.
4 hours is all I can do. By the end of 4 hours I am limp badly. I go home and stretch it for 2 hours and I am okay for the next day.

THE PROBLEM: Because I cant move very well its a problem and bad for my organs (you need to walk properly everyday for spine and organs to rub against properly). My body is stiff, my spine is very stiff and I am having problems, my heart is having problems. 
I work hard for 4 hours, I eat alot, I am getting fat and stiff. 
In my mind I have six pack and muscles like before crash. Honestly I believe this. Every time I look in the mirror I am in shock. Then (when I cannot see mirror) I think I am looking like before crash.

Anyway, after crash, after recovery from operations my blood pressure was 120/ 80 my heart rate was 45 beats a minute. ( I had been very fit, always running, sport) 
My heart is now 79. my blood pressure has gone to 145/95. Goes up and up

Dr does different tests and says this is serious, you have maybe 180 days to put this right before something happens to your heart, then way back is not such an easy road, maybe no road. 
Do something now and you reach 'the ledge' 
Once I am on the ledge I am okay , I can walk well enough and now I can jog, later I can run, it is a slow climb.  From ledge it is gentle climb.
If I cannot get on the ledge, then it is falling down the cliff, and then there is no way back up.

6 months he says, nothing matters, just work hard every day at home, you are a robot, you do the exact moves and stretches and exercising in the 1000s everyday and you will make it back. your body will move properly again.

My problem is - I dont know what to do about this,
I have been so weak, I have been living in a fantasy, 
Between the crash and now I have been imagining a fantasy. Im so scared of pain. the pain in my body.
So what I do: I imagine a different world. Everything that happens I imagine a different world where I am no injuries, I am young again, i have money, I am rich, I never got in the car, I made different choices. 
Whatever happens I imagine how it happened in my different world.
Every day I am imagining everything is in my different world. Everyone says Kolya he is slow, the accident hurt his brain. But I am living in imagination is all.
Im so scared of the pain of the work on my body. Pain I feel everyday. I imagine the world is different so I don’t feel pain. Simple.

So I pretend I am me before the crash on the social media too.
I spend my time online dating with my old photos from before the crash.
I still look okay in clothes. Im okay-handsome. 
But before people used to say I was really handsome , since the crash my face is sour and alot more lines, suddenly girls look through me.
But I still look back to them with the same eyes as before.

I used to date 6s at home all the time, thinking one day I'll try harder. 6s at home and 8s abroad. Now if I contact the 6s I once f--ed easily, whenever I wanted to connect with them, then they are not interested. Just laugh at me when I message them. I cannot handle that they don’t want me any more.

I used to have bad game a long time ago, real problems with confidence. 
I read and read game, I made myself look at women, just look at them and write down my thoughts, and then argue against the thoughts. 
Then it was look at them and think of a way, or just go up to girls and say hello, I used to go round towns near me and say I wanted to say hi and talk to every girl I was afraid of.
Then it was dates, F closes, then mini-relationships. Far as I got. 
I could mini relationship alot of girls but I was not serious enough to hold on to the girls I liked. 
But still, I fucked alot of 8s for a few nights in a row before they rejected me, then back to the 6s who like me.

It used to be Day 10s , now it is number close on Tinder, or make a Day 1.. but I never go. Not after the times they saw me as I look now and there was no attraction.
I have a very high sex drive. So now its P4P. 
I have an Aunt, she feels sorry for me, she still talks to me, she doesnt have much money but she sends me a little. 
I save money and go for P4P. 
Every day I imagine a different life and wait for my next P4P. 
These P4P girls do not like me, they are sexy and good and just take all my money and I go back to dating apps and my imagination and working hard in my job, 

dreaming of when I can pay the next P4P session 
pay those girls to pretend to like me. 
I am good at washing up.

The quality of women who want to talk to me goes down all the time. I used to be able to game them pretty good.

Like being in a fairground in and I cannot join any ride. Or a shop and I cannot buy a thing. The girls from my past won’t even message me any more.

I get very angry all the time. Its a clue to my mind’s place that I hate the top people in my company. 
Theyre arrogant and make life hard, they want control of staff in conversation. But I scared what I would do if they try and do the things they do to other staff to me. 
Im actually scared of what I would do in that minute. 
I can fight. I do not last very long these days, but I would show them some of my pain. I can see it when I look at them. They do not know this life and pain,

I am not saying violence is okay. I want to avoid this. I am scared by all of this.

I cannot stay still and just think, Stay still and just concentrate, I hate it. I reach for my phone, for social media. I do not trust myself anymore.

I told the dr give me drugs, give me something to make me numb so I can do this work on my body, but he said no. Only pain killers .. but with pain killers I cannot work with this. I thought start drinking to get through this (I don’t drink now) but I think it will not work.

I feel stupid at my age relying on an old Aunt and lying to her so that she gives me money and I can pay to sleep with whores.

What I am wanting to say is, this is serious but I cannot focus on it, it seems too big. 
I spend all my time on my phone and dating apps and distracted, pretending its another life. people smile and ignore me, give me no hassle so long as I live in my dream. But I know this is wrong. I know its wrong to walk sleeping like this into life of P4P customer.

Feel free to laugh, or make fun, I had to write this, I don’t know what to do. 

I do not have answers. I ‘lurk’ on RVF as well, but what can I do, my family believe in religion - I do not believe in religion, I cannot just pray and ignore my balls.

I think this could be my only motivation. I cannot stand the thinking that all is over with me and with women. 
Its something below my brain, maybe in my spine, that cannot accept it, that shouts.. The rest of me is scared - even if I tell myself its over with women, something in my gut in my balls, shouts no, will not.. wont listen.

(Thank you if you read all of this fucked up English. My English is poor.)

  best cities to daygame in south america
Posted by: Cheeky_Chappy - 02-17-2020, 06:15 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (7)

Looking for the best cities to daygame in south America.

obviously there are many cities buts its knowing which ones are worth spending time in and which either to spend short time or to avoid completely.

e.g I heard but cant confirm.

costa rica - beautiful but expensive compared to other parts of south america

panama city - heard its shady cant confirm


equador is a bit of a shithole and shady. they use the dollar and everything is expensive. the best thing about it is the galapogos.


peru - great food and cheap, matchu pitchu but...the women are for the majority not hot. 

bogota - great for tinder but cold and unfriendly people


cali - good for dancing, but bit rough looking.


cartagena - beautiful colonial town which many tourists but sea/beach is dirty and outside town its full of crime. 

santa marta - nicer or similar to cartagena 

margarita Venezuela - many tourists cant confirm if its good or safe or both?

Bolivia - has a massive desert made of salt worth seeing, don't know what game is like there?


appreciate any feedback from guys who have on the ground experience Wink
