On about the 5th day of my trip I hung out with Krauser for about an hour in the morning over breakfast. He then said goodbye as he was off to meet Jabba. I was a bit disappointed I didn’t get an invite to join them, not hurt feelings, just I haven’t spent much time with Steve and he hasn’t reached out to me as I would have liked. I would jump at any opportunity to hang out with him. Just being in his presence is an education in charisma. But I figured K must have had his reasons. In any case I got really sick an hour or so after he left and spent the next 24 hours in bed.
My body started to feel better by mid morning the next day and within a couple hours I felt pretty good. I was very relieved it was only a 24-hour bug and not a 2-week flu. I met Nick and Steve for coffee mid afternoon and we spoke about the blog post Krauser had written the day before and discussed some of the comments. I suggested to Nick that we could do a podcast on the topic. I didn’t really expect him to say yes, but thought it was worth putting it out there. Steve had to go off and do some work and K suggested that we go and do the podcast. That was pretty cool I thought.
We went to his room and it was a bit surreal hearing his voice as he recorded into to the podcast. I have listened to the womanizer’s bible podcast right through twice, so to be there doing one with him was a real kick.
We finished that and went for a walk and Nick suggested we try some of my massage game. I explained that we could walk for an hour and not find a massage girl we liked that IOI’d us, so it was important to be happy with just a walk if that’s all that transpired. He said he understood. It was late in the afternoon, so not so hot, so a really good time for a walk anyway.
We had walked for about 45 mins and were having fun when I saw a cute girl across the road look at me. She was about to cross the road towards me so I just waited and kept soft eye contact with her. Krauser stopped ahead and waited for me and watched. The girl crossed, we had a little chat, she didn’t hook, but gave me her number. But just that little interaction seemed to get Krauser’s daygame juices flowing. Within the next 20 minutes K had stopped about 4 girls and got 4 numbers. It was a site to behold.
He was dressed in board shorts and singlet and smelt like BO. He didn’t have his rings or “R” selected jewelry on. Yet I was amazed at the way he was able to put these girls he stopped into a trance. He had their attention completely captivated and they were just looking up at him with saucer plate eyes. I was impressed. It was also very funny watching him being a parody of himself. I could see how much he really loved daygame. This was his thing, his vibe completely changed and he became excitable and full of energy. I got one more number and K ended up with about 9 approaches and 8 numbers. We called it a day and met up with Steve for dinner. We told him about our days activities and arranged to do it again the following afternoon.
One of the things I had thought about asking both of them after they had got to know me a bit was. “Is it realistic for me to live in Europe when I am between 45 and 50 years old and daygame girls in their twenties”. I felt K knew me well enough by now so I asked him and he confirmed that yes that was a viable option for me. The next day I also asked Steve and he said. “Maybe not Western Europe, but Central and Eastern Europe for sure.” This meant a lot to me. I don’t believe they would have said it if they didn’t believe that I was capable. K had said that he wouldn’t do boot camps because he knew that 90% of the participants were wasting their time. I trusted him that he truly believed I had the value.
On my last day in Phuket I got to spend the afternoon and evening with both Nick and Steve. Steve warmed to me and we had a lot more banter than Nick and myself. Steve seems more a jovial character and would try and put on an Australian accent and tease me. We went out and daygamed, but only did a few approaches each. There just wasn’t the foot traffic of hot girls for it. We gave up on daygame and went and had dinner. It’s interesting to watch them disagree on topics, which they do constantly. Because their inner belief is so strong they don’t get in the slightest bit offended when the other disagrees with them, they debate without any animosity. It’s great to be around such strong frames.
They explained to me the European daygame scene where there is about 40 pretty cool guys and another 100 or so wankers, they also both eluded that I am now, by association with them, in the inner circle of daygame. When I am in Europe they will give me a reference to other guys they enjoy hanging out with, as someone that is worth spending time with. This felt pretty cool.
I realized daygame is more than just a skillset – it’s a lifestyle. Men in their 30’s and 40’s rejecting civilizations beta male position of monogamy and settling down in one place. They are choosing business models that allow them to live location independent and instead of family units they are choosing non-exclusive affairs with women 20 years younger than them. Instead of cities with feminist women, strong male competition, high cost of living, and exorbitant tax rates they are choosing Central and Eastern Europe.
This trip has changed me. Seeing how Nick and Steve live, I feel like I have the value and potential to make a real go of this nomadic lifestyle. Walking around with them, I felt less experienced and not even as good looking, especially Steve, but I felt equal value. My life experience and ability to pick up on social cues, and just the fact I could see them warm to me over the week. I think a lot of what I had learnt from game I was able to apply with them – not being needy, but still taking opportunities to be available, offering value, never asking for anything or trying to push an agenda. I’m proud of myself. I have the ability to get good at this. Not as good as them, but good enough for my needs
One thing else I noticed on this trip is the amount of IOI’s I get from Russian and Slavic girls, there are lots of them on holidays, but almost always with their boyfriend. Some of them fully look my up and down. I must just look different to the men in those countries, not more handsome, but more shiny, obviously from the west, and a perceived higher value. I can’t wait to get there.
My initial objective with a relationship with Krauser was to spend as much time with him as I could. He had achieved that which I was trying to and spending time with him I believed would help me understand him better and take on the characteristics that helped him. To do that I believed I had to offer him value and thought I could do that with my business experience. So my original goal was to make some comments on his blog, hope to get him to read my blog and eventually offer him some free business consulting and development. As it turned out, by taking advantage of an opportunity, the social aspect was what I could do to offer value. That was just by being pleasant company, plain and simple, pleasant company is something Krauser really enjoys and struggles to find because there are so many wankers in the world. I also had just enough intelligence to ask engaging questions, make reasonably astute statements, and not make any demands on him.
