I enjoyed reading Roosh’s new book Game. It was detailed, well thought-out and I thought the advice was extremely good with the possible exception IMO of some of the relationship advice at the end, which is not why most men are going to really read the book anyway. Although I would definitely recommend the book, I was surprised to find that it is a little depressing. I’ll admit, I come from a little bit of a different world than Roosh. Inevitably, when I’ve asked a woman out outside of online dating, she has been a woman who knows me from politics or a woman I’ve had a few interactions with already. On the other hand, Roosh is an approach machine who will go after any woman that catches his fancy. As a result, he has slept with over 100 women in multiple countries and he does not paint a rosy picture of what the dating world looks like for men. Read these quotes and you’ll see what I mean….
5) ”The fact that you need to learn game as if you were studying a subject in university says that who you are is not enough to get the girls you want in a degenerate society. Your character traits, which probably include aspects of loyalty, politeness, fairness, fidelity, and justice, are not highly desired by girls who have an unbridled choice of men, and only by applying game can you unleash the type of man who will be favored in a society that’s broken.”
4) “It would be great if you met a pretty girl in a bar, had a long conversation with her that ended with a kiss, got her phone number, and then arranged a date for a few days later. Unfortunately, the likelihood of this scenario is shrinking, resulting in huge amounts of frustration for just about every man who meets girls at night. Here is the worst-case reality: if you get phone numbers from girls you don’t kiss, you’ll need ten to eighteen numbers to get one date.”
3) “With the exception of approaching, the most frustrating part of game is contacting girls, either via voice call or by texting. Girls no longer have basic manners when communicating with men they’ve shown an interest in, so you’ll repeatedly be disappointed when interactions that seemed to be strong and genuine fade to silence. The strong connection you feel is fleeting in the mind of the modern girl who wants to continually experience a smorgasbord of excitement and adventure. She will love you one moment and treat you worse than a homeless bum the next. This is why I advise that you push the interaction as far as you can while a girl is in your presence.”
