What a real international player looks like… from the feet up

Last time Roosh was back for a month we had the chance to hangout very often. On one night we went bar hopping around his neighborhood.

He purposefully wore a Russian shirt (this was when the whole Russia, Ukraine thing first popped off). It was a slow night maybe a Wednesday night as most of the bars in the beginning of the night were dead. Soon we settled at an old time favorite of both of ours from back in the day. There was a mixed group of young people standing close to us, the girls giggling and looking in our direction. Finally a cute blonde girl sauntered up to Roosh and with an accent asked him why he was wearing a Russian shirt. He dismissed her and told her of his plans to travel there and his travels to Eastern Europe where he interacted with women who were Russian. She didn’t seem to believe him and said she was from Russia herself and that’s when Roosh said something in Russian. Her face lit up and she answered him back and they exchanged about a paragraphs worth of information. Then she mentioned her travels to South America and spending a few semesters in one of the countries. Roosh was able to speak to that as well, mentioned some of the places he’d visited and named interesting facts about the city she’d been in. All of a sudden she started speaking Spanish almost quizzically and Roosh took a half a second before responding back as well in Spanish.

Within ten minutes these two spoke three different languages. I could tell by observing that the girl was extremely impressed as her face light up and she stepped closer towards Roosh with more intrigue. Looking back at her group what I could gather is she came over here to ridicule Roosh for wearing the shirt and knowing nothing about Russia. Thinking he was your average non traveling American trying to look cool and instead found an experienced worldly traveler. This went on a few minutes longer until a girl from her group came up and dragged her back to the group where she had a boyfriend waiting for her that did not look too pleased. He went on to over claim his property by kissing her and putting his arms around her to show she was taken.

As we continued our night discussing what just happened it took me a while to fully understand what I saw. What started out as a bullshit test easily transitioned into seduction and an almost pick up. It happened so fast but over five years of work just happened in ten minutes worth of time. The way Roosh played his international card with ease and a matter of fact demeanor. This chick couldn’t tell him nothing. The best move is that he could show off without looking like he was trying to show off. This lead me to realize that to get to this level of international game for most men would be impossible but at the same time almost unnecessary without fully committing and making major life changes.

For instance if you lived in town in Idaho a place with maybe five Russian women what would be the point of learning Russian or any other foreign language for that matter. Sure if you would like it as a hobby but if it didn’t help you get laid would you really be willing to devote the years necessary to learn Russian? So right off the bat location is everything to becoming an international player. Living in a big city in Californian, NY, DC, Miami, Boston just to start off with would be important if you’re currently living in the US. A city where if you search for it you can find an international scene besides Spanish.

The next part of the international game would involve actually living or spending a large amount of time in another country. Sure your typical two week vacation might impress a few people back home but then to actually pull chicks from that country you must show you’ve spent real time there, getting to know their culture, the city the land. Bottom line this will take figuring out a way in your life that will allow you to make such a move. Figuring out how to make the income needed to maybe work overseas for a few months or save long enough to make a full move. This is the hardest part but truthfully what’s needed. If you’re going to be an international player you’ve got to do it from the feet up. You’ve got to fully commit or else it just won’t make sense to your current reality. It doesn’t happen overnight or even in a few months. You have to decide that this is what you want and dedicate your life to it.

But for the average man this is a dream. It sounds great in theory but then you think about your mortgage, car payment, and student debt. You just met an awesome girl and you want to date her exclusively for few months so you don’t need to study another language or think about moving anytime soon. Life is the thing that happens when you’re not living and doing what you really want to do. I envy Roosh because he first learned game here in DC the hard knocks capital of picking up women. He put in the work needed to be able to move and explore the world to find the type of women he wants. Now after years of learning and staying focus there’s not much any woman in any country can throw at him and he won’t know how to handle the situation.

    Great post. That’s tight integration of self-improvement and Game, as if it were one in the same.

    Thanks bro.

    A lot of people say I took the easy way out by traveling, but it takes more work than if I would have stayed. At the same time, the rewards are greater.

    Damn, just inspired me to keep on going.

    Another bizarre twist I have found when returning after time away from the US is that American girls do not want to hear about other cultures. They get turned off, intimidated, or insecure if I go too much in depth about experiences or differences that I want to share.

    And I don’t share the boring stuff either.

    But American girls are lumped into their own steaming category…traveling always always improves chances with foreign girls on U.S. soil. “Your so different” is a great phrase to hear.

    Sounds like you need to join Roosh on the road.

    How you have stayed in that shitsville called DC is astounding. I hate that City with a passion-what a sewer.
