1. Comments

First and foremost understand that I do not give a shit about you. I have a one-way connection to the pickup community in which I write whatever I want and then you choose to read it or not. Don’t for a moment think you have a stake in this blog or any kind of claim on my time. I do not have a Book Of Rules where you can point to section 1.2 article A to demand some kind of preferred behaviour from me. So if you act like a dickhead in the comments I’ll ridicule you, debate you or delete you entirely depending on what I think is appropriate at that point in time. Regular readers with normal social skills will do fine.

I’ve been writing for years and chances are I’ve already answered your question somewhere in this blog. Therefore I will not waste my time on you just because you can’t be bothered to do your own research.

I have no tolerance for comments from angry morons whose sole motivation for commenting is to tear down what I’ve painstakingly built. If my life shakes your reality, tough shit. Stop reading. If you find a less-than-satisfactory response to your comment ask yourself this – “what was I trying to achieve with my comment?” If the answer is showing off, nitpicking, gamma-raged reality-denying or any other such inauthentic emotion then you can be sure it was blindingly obvious to everyone reading it.

2. Who are my readers?

Despite the above I do care for some of my readers. Probably half of my motivation for writing is to provide a detailed path for well-intentioned disciplined guys who wish to follow in my footsteps. I’ve met with and had correspondance with such men and its rewarding for me to know they’ve sidestepped landmines I had to trod on myself. I find Game a topic of fascinating complexity and like any hobbyist talking shop I like to have an audience / peers of similar interests and sophistication.

My ideal reader, the guy I subconsciously imagine I’m writing for, is late 30s, average but unremarkable looks, >120 IQ and spent most of his life as a dependable blue pill worker. He’s got the discipline to succeed in whatever he turns his mind to, the strength of character to persist against hardship, and the willingness to confront his own demons. He’s probably also done at least 500 daygame sets and is getting laid occasionally with normal girls who aren’t too bad to look at. I guess you could say I’m talking to intermediate players mostly.

3. Are you racist / sexist / homophobic?

Yes. That said, I reject the labels because rather than describing any kind of character trait or reality the “-ist” labels are really just smear weapons to shut down debate and force compliance of the subject in his own destruction. The worst discrimination in the UK is visited on white straight males. That’s not to say we have the worst quality of life, just that when we succeed its due to the value we are able to give to the world rather than being propped up by value stolen by others.

There is unquestionably a Feminine Imperative attack on men. In the past 40 years there’s been an unquestionable attack on white English with mass immigration and aggressively-foisted multiculturalism. Crime stats by race really do prove that ethnics are far far more criminal than whites in the UK. Blacks really do own shootings, stabbings, muggings, gang-rape and interracial street violence. Arabs and pakistanis own terrorism, ethnic cleansing of city districts and 10-on-1 street attacks. Fag culture really is a degenerate attack on all things civilised (see Jack Donovan’s “flamboyant dishonour” concept).

Any individual can transcend his race, just like any white person can shame his own. I judge people on their individual merits and find that the 50% of any given race who are right-side-of-the-bell-curve are generally law-abiding net-positive wealth creators. Hence I have (a few) black, arab and pakistani friends. I see the world as it really is and generally speaking what we call “civilisation” is really the product of a tiny group of historically great white European men. Nowhere else has ever produced it (I don’t count the slave-based societies as civilised, nor those that got rich paying white men to extract their oil and then exchanging it for white-produced goods and managerial expertise). Even within the UK, probably less than 10% of men have the Civilisation Gene.

4. Where’s the proof?

You missed it. For a couple of years I consistently posted infield videos of street pickups, dates, and lays. I also posted real photos of the girls and lengthy text and chat transcripts. Many of those have since been taken down. I don’t have to prove anything to you. If you don’t believe me, don’t read me.

5. I need help with x, y, z

Tough shit. Pay a coach for his time or do your own research. I’ve written enough on this blog that my advice on your problem is somewhere on the site. Do some work. If you expect to come onto my blog and demand a freebie then here’s my advice: that attitude is precisely your problem and why you don’t get laid. There’s nothing free in this world. Successful men must carve their own openings from a hostile unyielding world. If you think someone is just gonna drop their tools and come running to your aid then you have entitlement issues. You’re probably gamma. As noted above, you have no claim on me. It’s really messed-up to think that just because I offer lots of value for free that I’m therefore beholden to you to offer more. No. Fuck off.

6. The HB8.72 that I dated the other night said…

Three points:

  1. If you are using the HBX.XX scale at all then you are rubbish at game and likely have the wrong mindset about how to acquire tight game
  2. It’s really obvious that you are qualifying to me and my readers, trying to elbow your way into being taken seriously. Stop doing it, it makes you look weak
  3. I’ve already mentally subtracted three points from the score you gave her. Almost everyone on the internet is flat-out lying about the quality of women they consort with.

7. Do looks matter?

Yes, massively so. The dirty secret in the community is that almost all of the name players who get laid can fit into one of these categories:

  1. Tall good-looking guy who really ought to be getting laid alot even without game.
  2. Scenester who has an in with rock / indie / hipster girls. These are highly promiscuous social circles where no game is required.
  3. Hard worker with no standards. This guy is relentlessly churning out sets and will fuck anything, though you’ll only ever see photos of the very best girls he meets.
  4. A liar.

There’s very very few players out there who are getting laid primarily on the basis of their game. That’s why my golden rule is you must be fucking girls who are physically better-looking than you are. Also the greater the age difference, the more impressive. It’s incredibly easy for a 23yr old guy to bang a 21yr old women. I did it plenty with zero game when I was that age. Every five years you add to the age difference makes closing an order of magnitude harder. Banging a girl 15 years your junior is very difficult.

Game works. The above 1-3 guys will fail if their anti-game is so bad they constantly fuck up (which is most men) but don’t assume just because a guy gets laid that he therefore has game. Lots of people get laid due to other reasons. Game is a value-add that gets you more women and better women. It gets you women without paying the “price” of exclusivity, waiting, losing the frame, spending money, losing your soul.

8. It’s not fair! waaaaaaah!

Psychologists call this the “just world hypothesis” – a believe that the world has some kind of karmic-balancing force that rewards the just and punish the evil. Combine that with your own self-delusion and ego-protecting buffers and you’ll naturally consider yourself as on the side of the just and owed a reward of pussy. The harder you work the greater the reward you demand and thus the angrier you get when it’s not forthcoming. This is a vicious cycle of creepiness and avoidance. To break it just learn to accept reality as it really is and process the feedback it gives you.

When you see a winner, try to learn from him. I’ll guarantee he didn’t just spring into the world as a winner. What you see and envy now is the end product of years and years of hard graft, risks taken, and opportunities seized. That winner was a loser many times over but everytime he fell off the horse he got right back on.

9. How do record your sets?

Almost every video I’ve ever posted was recorded with a cheap 8GB watch camera or a small black gum cam. See this post for details. With these being cheap Chinese imports I never figured out how to set the text file to use the correct date. Thus most of the videos have a time stamp of 01/01/2008 or suchlike. The correct dates are within a month of the post itself.

10. What are your stats?

I have no idea. Click the lay reports tab to see most of my lays. There’s about a dozen I never wrote up and another half dozen I wrote up and have since taken down. I’m not a high-notch guy. Don’t get too tied up in the numbers or they’ll hold you back. Much of your improvement with women will come from letting it all go and learning not to be so hard on yourself, to just be in the moment and focus on the ebbs and flows of the interaction. Keeping spreadsheets and tracking stats gives you extra things to worry about and the illusion of control. Ditch them.

11. You are my hero

There’s a fine line between respecting a mentor and worshipping a guru. By all means learn from my successes and failures but don’t kid yourself that I have all the answers. Use my blog for what you can learn from it but always keep an emotional distance and remain your own man. Some of the cornerstone characteristics of a sexually attractive male are his boundaries, sense of self, entitlement, stubborness, and refusal to live his life in service of others. Hero worship retards your development of those characteristics. Don’t be retarded.

12. Why do you do daygame?

According to the Myers-Briggs personality test I am an INTJ. I strongly recommend all my readers to self-administer this test. My personality type is drawn towards lone wandering, deep authentic communication and independence. I can’t stand nightclubs, cultivating social circles, status-whoring and other extroversions. Daygame perfectly synchs to my character. I like to walk around alone with my thoughts, stopping occassionally to talk to a girl. I don’t like to make small talk with people I’ll never see again. I don’t like the demands on my attention of being in groups. Per Myers-Briggs only 4% of men have my character and thus my style is a niche taste. It might not be right for you.

On a more practical note, the best Game plays to your strengths. I am highly educated, intelligent, erudite, creative and above all a good talker. I am not tall, good looking, social or high energy. Thus I can best deliver my value on the streets one-to-one and sober. I struggle to get my value out in a nightclub.

13. What you said doesn’t agree with Mystery / Style / Tyler / Roissy

Mystery and Style are bullshitters who wrote some good material and played a pivotal role in shaping the community but they were not good with women. Tyler is a fantastic analyst but strikes me as weird and not good with women. Roissy is a great writer but his brand of nihilistic game is better suited for where he shaped it – East coast metropolitan America.

Pick any pickup theorist and you’ll find any number of legitimate reasons why they’d disagree with me. They have a different personality, are working a different social mileau, target different girls, want different things, have different strengths and weaknesses etc. In other cases they don’t really disagree its just comparing apples to oranges. Read what you can and over time you’ll formulate your own game.

14. What is your opinion on x, y, z

It’s on my blog. Use the search function. If I haven’t written about it already then likely I don’t care / don’t have an opinion, or I consider it outside the thematic scope of my blog. Just to contextualise my general worldview this might help. I believe the following:

  • Government is intrinsically evil and inefficient. It’s only legitimate functions are to protect the borders, maintain domestic order, and provide a means of settling contracts. The classic Nightwatchman State of philosophical liberalism. Thus I like Ayn Rand, John Locke and the unamended US Constitution.
  • Free market capitalism is the greatest form of human organisation yet invented, providing the optimal balance between wealth creation and freedom of individual self-determination. History has shown every single departure from this model (feudalism, socialism, mercantalism, social democracy) significantly worsens the human condition and will lead to enslavement or collapse. Most western societies are closer to socialism than capitalism but its disguised. For example the Bank Of England is a fundamentally socialist institution – it centrally plans the most important price in the economy – the cost of money.
  • The world is not fair and nature doesn’t care if you’re happy. You must set your own goals and try to achieve them. What we now call “morality” is basically a conflation of two different things 1) the intersection of mutual self-interest in a I-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine and I-won’t-kill-you-if-you-don’t-kill-me 2) a web of lies to encroach your frame and bullshit you into giving up your value to moochers and looters.

I don’t care if you disagree with me. I’ve stated my opinions and its not open to debate. Feel free to disagree, just don’t expect me to care.

  1. Your self-righteous tone is exactly why I OCR’d your book and posted it on bittorrent, asshole. [Thanks for massively increasing my influence in the community. K.]

  2. I’ve been writing for years and chances are I’ve already answered your question somewhere in this blog. Therefore I will not waste my time on you just because you can’t be bothered to do your own research. . . . Probably half of my motivation for writing is to provide a detailed path for well-intentioned disciplined guys who wish to follow in my footsteps

    You should write / compile a book that collects and organizes your posts. These days it’s not hard to produce and sell an ebook, and a lot of people (including myself!) would read it. I’m thinking of something less specific, and cheaper, than Nitro. You’ve got all the elements you need for a successful book: a central topic, an interesting style, and most of the content.

    A lot of guys simply won’t go through archives of random stuff on a blog. Maybe that’s simply lazy, but most blogs aren’t really organized for later consultation—which good books are. I doubt it’s a path to fortune, but you might make a few dollars / pounds / euros and gain influence.

    On a minor note, there’s a typo in this sentence: “Psychologists call this the “just world hypothesis” – a believe that the world has some kind of karmic-balancing force.”

    “A believe” should be “a belief.” [Thanks. Just a note, perhaps I should update my FAQ for it. I do not want my blog to be a source of passive income. I'm highly resistant to developing the identity of "daygame coach" or somesuch. This blog is organised as a real-time journey from chode to player and that remains its main value. My real career is lucrative. I do this blog for non-financial reasons and even if its a relatively easy conversion, I think I'd lose more in self-image from hustling for money than I'd gain in money hustled. K.]

  3. fantastic FAQ. inspiring. some great quotes there. like this one:

    “Much of your improvement with women will come from letting it all go and learning not to be so hard on yourself, to just be in the moment and focus on the ebbs and flows of the interaction.”

  4. Whatever you do man keep posting regularly cause I among many others really appreciate it.I think more than anything this blog represents hope, that it’s real, that you can transform yourself and get good with Women know matter were you start from.

    • Hope is a marketable commodity. The sort of information provided by Krauser and ‘ his ilk’ not only offers hope but profoundly improves peoples lives.

  5. Krauser,

    question for you on looks. I’m bald and shave my head with a similar look to you. I’ve noticed in your approach videos you always wear a hat, which makes sense as you want to de-emphasize this weakness when making a first impression.

    At what point do you typically take off the hat, either in an insta-date or day 2? I wait until attraction has been built, usually after the first bounce, but wondering if you have a rule of thumb that works for you.

    cheers [It's all in your head. Women don't care. I open about half my sets with a hat on. Just depends how sunny or cold it is. K.]

  6. Well, while reading this I did a czech version of MBTI test online…I am INTJ, 2% of male population. I guess I should keep reading this blog.

  7. >>I see the world as it really is and generally speaking what we call “civilisation” is really the product of a tiny group of historically great white European men. Nowhere else has ever produced it

    There have been several races that have led the world militarily, scientifically, artistically, etc. US has held this position in the last century and it was Britain prior to that and many years ago it was China, it was Greece, it was India, it was Persia and the list goes on.

    The most interesting thing to come out of Britain IMO was the implementation of free market capitalism based on Adam Smith’s work. I say implementation because similar theories were proposed in other places (e.g. chanakya in India). Because of this implementation Britain and Europe flourished and became powerful. Europeans were able to conquer the rest of the world and export their culture (“civilization”). How come free market capitalism was implemented in Britain rather than other places despite of such ideas being present? Was it because of the dominance of “alpha males i.e. kings” in the rest of the world who did not let such a self-inflicting wound happen under their watch? Were rulers in Europe “beta” to let this happen? Who knows these things.

    Why is it that african neighbourhoods across the “developed” world are infested with crime? Is it because they think the rules of society just don’t apply to them? Does this make them more “alpha” than the rest?

    I agree that the prosperity humanity has seen in the past 200 years or so is largely due to the free market principles and other ideas that originated in Britain/Europe (it might not be long – couple of centuries or so – before others catch up. China is pretty close). But you seem to imply that white european men are superior genetically than men of other races. Just pointing out that it is not that clear.

    Really great to see the progress you’ve made with pick-up. I hope to get to your level some day. Thanks for writing the blog. More field reports/lay reports please!

  8. INTJ Here – I understand the entire FAQ. Very well written.

    I’ve been studying MBTI for a couple of weeks, typing everybody who I come across. I can say for certain that the writer of this FAQ is an INTJ. No doubt in my mind.

    I noticed that most who have typed themselves have absolutely no clue about MBTI at all. It is not possible to change types, ever. It is not possible to be an IXFX. You fit one of the types and not the other 15, anybody who suggests otherwise has not done their research.

    Krauser, you’re a great insperation to me. I’ve been with other PUA’s like RSD (I respect RSD) but none of them were INTJ’s. None of them adressed my problems as clearly as you and none of them has made (day)game so understandable.

    OFFTOPIC time! For any INTJ being very new to the scene or MBTI, I’d like to share something. Since I know you will google and research everything you don’t understand, I’ll give you the basics:

    In essence there are 8 cognitive functions: Ni, Ne, Ti, Te, Si, Se, Fi, Fe. An INTJ works with the following: Ni, Te, Fi, Se.

    Your first function is Introverted iNtuition (Ni): It makes you create a vision about future possibility’s. What could be. It has a huge focus on the big picture and seeing it all, it works subconsciously and will usually only present itself when it has reached a full picture. This is why you get sudden insights or brilliant idea’s. Ni also analyses every single detail and their relationship with other details. For exmaple I did A,B,C,D while in situation E and she reacted G. While much more complex, taking in everything that happened.

    Your second function is Extroverted Thinking (Te): It puts the rational framework upon what Ni creates. It is also your first extroverted function which means that you have a natural tendency to be logical when you’re ‘outside your head’ and talking to people. Te also makes sense of every single detail that Ni analyses.

    Your third function is Introverted Feeling (Fi): It creates an inner feeling, about Ni and Te, the new idea which fits inside your rational framework.

    Your last function is Extroverted Sensing (Se): These are your 5 senses which will tell you everything objectively about the outer world what is really there. Like seeing fire: It is warm, yellow, orange and it makes crisping sounds. Se does interpret this as good or bad. Se does not give you a nostalgic feeling. That is what Si does.

    Literally, compared to all the other types an INTJ has the worst functions from the get go. But once an INTJ gets a focus on game/socialising, they can become deadly as hell with Te and Se creating perfect objective understanding of the game what is true and what does really work (without any bullshit) while using Ni and Fi to create an awesome future and feel amazing about striving towards it.

    There is much, much more to Ni, Te, Fi, Se and how they work together. If you’re interested do your research or hit me up, I won’t half-ass it next time.

    Theorie about Tyler being so obsessed about Tolle Bro!
    I suspect that, but I am not sure about it myself, that Tyler is an INFJ. Ni, Fe, Si, Te. His first function is Extroverted Feeling (Fe), After that comes Ni (future oriented) Because of his extroverted feeling. That is why he can Meditate and FEEL super awesome.

    • The last part: Theory about Tyler wasn’t finished yet. In essense I suspect that Tyler is an ENFJ and uses Fe, Ni, Se, Ti. he has a strong Fe and meditation really puts a large focus on it. Making him feel incredibly good, something other types like the INTJ would never achieve.

      This is all theory without proof at all, don’t read much into it.

  9. Alright Nick

    Just discovered your work – thank you. Such as yourself I have had a seismic life changing event (boring shit) and your words are helping the transitional period. In the true spirit of human reciprocation, I think you may find these lectures entertaining:

    Thank you

    Dean

  10. This thing is tough.
    Quite a bit tougher than i first thought.
    My question is, does it get any easier/smoother as i gain more experience.
    At the mo my ego is taking a massive hit and some nights after having been out for a good few hours in central London i think to myself im not sure if im cut out for this.

    cheers [It gets slightly easier, but not much. You'll know after about 1,000 sets if you have it in you. K.]

    • Appreciate the reply. Cheers
      Ok, there’s some work to be done. Interested to see how far i can go, which means pushing myself and accepting this thing isn’t easy.
      Pretty sure most guys don’t see it through.

      • Apologies if this question has been asked before but was wondering what your opinion on Justin wayne(an American pua) is?
        Reason i ask is im starting to push myself a bit more and have started looking around for the real deals when it comes to game. Yourself, tom torero, Steve jabba and a couple others tick the right boxes, although your styles maybe a little different, from what ive seen you all have definite things in common. Justin Wayne has a good vibe but something just doesn’t add up( he seems quite needy, kino’s too much Imo and there doesn’t seem to be that much sexual tension from what ive seen of him). He doesn’t seem masculine and centred enough to be consistently pulling hot girls.

  11. Krauser,

    I’d be interested if you did a post on how you break things off with girls, after you’ve gotten the notch.

    Obviously you can just stop texting them, but I’m finding a lot of girls want a relationship afterwards and get clingy. If it gets to that point, I prefer to tell them no instead of just not calling/texting, either live or phone, but I’m wondering if you’ve learned something smoother.

  12. That’s cool that you’re an INTJ. I am too and was surprised by the 4%. Never thought a PUA type could be a INTJ. I’m going to read your blog and book now. Thanks for mentioning that.

  13. What is the significance of old Dark and sultry over on the right under Krauser Girls? Is it your ex-wife?

  14. Was visiting Japan worth it? You mention it sparsely through your posts. Thinking about a short-term move there soon for the hell of it.

  15. When an individual places an additional importance on themselves through use of their imagination it tends to be humorous. When an entire community does it, it is that much more entertaining.

  16. What do you mean by “purity fantasy”? [ http://bit.ly/1i09Mux K.]

  17. HI Nick, great meeting you at Toms book launch. Have a great time in FSU. I am heading to Oslo.. Ash

  18. Im gonna chime in on this. I dont devalue your experience, and i do have respect for your growth and evolution. But why the arrogance? It really seems like you go out of your way to project this fuck-you attitude. Perhaps this works for you and attracts notice, much like the comment im writing here. Ive been following you for a few years, i just dont understand the hostile attitude here. The sentiment, i dont dispute. Personal responsibility, doing your own digging to find info, all valid, and to be expected coming from any self made man. However, i feel like the degree to which you flaunt this attitude is an ego thing. I have respect for your work and experience, but this really just makes you sound like a douche, and not in the good way. The men here are your allies….even if their naivety offends your refined sensibilities from years of hard work. It just strikes me as trying a bit too hard to seem like an asshole. I understand there are haters, and obtuse people, but your one way relationship with the manosphere should extend to these minor annoyances. You would truthfully be upset if you had no following, even the stubborn, naive readers.

  19. It is refreshing to hear someone not trying to coddle his readers for fear of losing a prospective buck. I agree–guys need to do the work, and if someone displays habitual success with women, it is most certainly the result of hard work and not luck or the result of being a so-called “natural.” FYI, when you say: “banging a girl 15 years your junior is very difficult,” that is your mindset, and not an objective reality. I am 54 years old and regularly bang good looking girls 15-25 years my junior. I currently have a 30 year old Costa Rican/Jamaican ex-girlfriend whom I still see occasionaly, and a new 32 year old Costa Rican woman living in the States. Both are guy magnets with very attractive bodies. I am an American living in Costa Rica, which may make a difference, but nevertheless, a lot of younger, sexually experienced women are tired of the shallowness and immaturity of their similar-aged male counterparts, and are attracted to older, more experienced men. I have seen this in American, Costa Rican, Nicaraguan, Jamaican and Cuban women in my personal experience.

  20. not that familiar with your ‘body of work’ but saw one of your interviews on thelondon real show…or something of similar name, and from the that I anticipate profound insight from your book and this blog. Good luck with these endeavors

  21. You seem like a real pig. Shame. Ever heard of the expression, ‘gentlemen never tell’?

  22. Hi Nick, I greatly enjoy your blog and your lack of sugar-coating and your books are on my reading stack. In that unsugared vein I hope you won’t mind if I offer occasional rejoinders to entries on your twitter feed (displayed on your blog’s sidebar).

    1. “It just doesn’t seem like progression to my beta male readers who are being bred out. Tough shit. Life is hard. Up your game.”

    Could you tell us how successful you have been at breeding, at being an actual r-strategist. That is, how many children do you actually have?

    2. “Don’t expect a peep from the treacherous Left on this ethnic cleansing: tinyurl.com/pnazjpq Islamists are pure evil. Don’t forget it.”

    What is your view of the origins of modern-day “Islamists” or “Jihadis”? On a related note, do you believe that the attacks of 9/11/01 were the work of a handful of Islamists? I.e., do you accept the official account of those events?

  23. “There’s very very few players out there who are getting laid primarily on the basis of their game. That’s why my golden rule is you must be fucking girls who are physically better-looking than you are. Also the greater the age difference, the more impressive. It’s incredibly easy for a 23yr old guy to bang a 21yr old women. I did it plenty with zero game when I was that age. Every five years you add to the age difference makes closing an order of magnitude harder. Banging a girl 15 years your junior is very difficult.”

    I love this! So a 58 year-old (who otherwise matches the criteria of your ideal reader) is 10,000 times less likely than yourself to bang a twenty-something woman? In other words, it’s practically impossible! Sounds like a challenge. :-) You mention somewhere that you are interested in daygame accounts that are supported by video. I’ll put up a blog of my future adventures (good or bad) once I’ve absorbed enough theory. Would you be interested in seeing it when it comes?

  24. Do you use your real name here, and if not where do you draw the line between your PUA persona and the rest of your life? I ask not in order to pry but to sort out such questions for myself.
