To say I am a fan of Nick Krauser’s is an understatement. In my efforts to master PUA, I have consumed in immense body of literature and video from “The Game” and all the references in it, Mystery, Ross Jeffries, David D, etc. To more modern day “Casanova’s” like Richard La Ruina, Paul Janka, Tom Torrero, and of course Nick Krauser. There is probably another 40-50 authors I have got inspiration from.
Of all these Krauser has become the standout by far. Same age, same personality profile, and even similar looks to me (he might be a touch better looking). He might not get laid as much as some of the others, but the way he is able to break down the craft of pick-up and seduction, and the inner game needed, is by far the most useful to me. And his method’s are by far the most conducive to my personality.
Steve Jabba, I don’t get as much out of his writing, but more because I am not able to understand it, or at least relate it to my own experience as well. However there are parts of his philosophy that resonate with me, even though I don’t feel I understand more than 20%. I feel it is like a more intuitive and animalistic model of raw sexual energy and is hard to comprehend unless you are getting laid a lot. Still, there have been times when I am in a good vibe that I lay the sexual energy on thick and think of some of his teachings.
In one of Krauser’s blog posts he talks about himself being a craftsmen and Jabba being a hunter. I can also see that Krauser has adopted a lot of Jabba’s method, but in a more refined, methodical and craftsman’s like manner. And I can see why he chose to do a re-write of Jabba’s book, “Primal Seduction” – there were parts in there that subtly helped create his own model, but would have been too out of scope to dive deeply into in Krauser’s book “Mastery”.
What all this means to me is that for a while now I feel that for my personality type, age and living situation, I can pretty much learn everything I need to know from these two guys. And in a few days I will be on holiday with them both in Phuket. It feels surreal and weird, like the daygame Gods have conspired in my favour. I am resistant to getting my expectations up since they don’t even know me, I am not their students or paying them, and they are under no obligation to spend more time with me than a 20 minute coffee, that only Nick agreed to.
First I will explain how I even got into this situation. A couple months ago I finished reading all Krauser’s blog posts and decided that I wanted to meet him and get to know him. It was my understanding he didn’t do coaching, or if he did it would be prohibitively expensive for me. Besides, I wanted to get to know him in real life and see how he ticked to try and replicate the parts of him that would serve me, rather than him teach me more technique.
I sketched out a strategy that including making a few comments on his blog until he started to recognize my name and then send him an email offering some ecommerce marketing consulting and/or the resources of my ecommerce support agency. I had got as far as an introductory comment thanking him for his content and the benefit that had made in my life.
His post on 6th December mentioned he was in Bali where he hated it and there were no hot women. I made a comment about Schoolies being on at the moment and said he could be a Tooly with a link to a news article. He replied to my comment, so I sent him an email offering him my hospitality in Brisbane. I initially thought about offering him a plain fare, but thought that was too much, so just offered him a room in my house and car to drive. He replied saying thanks, but no thinks and invited me to Europe next year. Half way through replying to him I thought, “Why the fuck don’t I just go to Bali”. So I suggested if he wanted some company I would come and spend a few days in Bali with him. He replied he was ok with that but wasn’t even sure if he was staying there, but had planned to meet Steve Jabba in Phuket on the 16th of December. He gave me his what’s app and said he would update me in a day or two. I replied inviting myself to Thailand with him instead saying I don’t much like Bali, but I would meet him anywhere he wanted in Thailand.
I was really excited by the opportunity of getting in with those guys. I was confident I had the value, especially as a travel companion in Thailand. My value is not just higher in girls eyes in Thailand, but because I have had so much experience, my value is also higher in guys eyes. With those two freaks my frame will be crushed and I wouldn’t be able to be my best self, but in Thailand, the impression they have of me will be so much higher and I will be able to resist their frames better.
A couple days later Krauser sent me a message saying he was booked to fly to Phuket on the 12th and would meet Steve Jabba on the 16th. I jumped online straight away and booked my flights also for the 12th. I thought it would be best to be there with him before Steve turned up since they were already good friends and I would be on the outer.
Getting ready for my trip to Thailand I signed up for a dating site called Thai Friendly. Got lots of bites, but a lot of them are bar girls, one even said she was freelancer. Still through the rubble I might find some gems, and even the bar girls might be amiable to romance. If I put on the charm and just tell them straight I don’t pay then they may just decide they still want to fuck, this has happened in the past.
But I’m not really going there for that. My motivation was only to hang out with Krauser. I have been given an awesome opportunity but my sexual desire and habit of easy sex in Thailand, like a Pavlovian response, is distracting me. Mmm not really. The biggest challenge around being with K is going to be being myself, my best self. Not the self I am trying to be, but the self that I am when I am calm.
Even just chatting to him on whatsapp I am really nervous. I’ll probably be even worse around Steve. What am I getting myself into? It will be ok. K will probably want to work from a café and I should be reasonably welcome to join him there for some of the time. We don’t even need to talk much, I just want to learn his body language and nuances and see the myth in real life. I’m sure we will have some conversations, but I can imagine just hanging out while we work, read whatever. I’m not just interested in the legend, I also feel like I have found someone that is very similar to me, however better than me in a lot of areas I would like to improve in. That is a powerful thing.
Then there will be some daygame. Imagine that, daygaming with the Mighty Krauser. What’s more I get to do it in my backyard. Where both him and Steve are probably out of their comfort, or at least experience, zones.
I don’t feel the need to bang heeps of Thai girls and I know that’s not why I am going. I am going there to meet and hopefully hang out with Nick Krauser. It will be really challenging. First just meeting him and finding common ground without me being too nervous, or him being in a bad mood, or whatever situation might derail that train. Then if I do become friends with them and hang out they will challenge me on the areas I need to change. I feel like I won’t be able to deceive them as I am able with other guys. The girls of Phuket will just be a break, a mild distraction.
