Interviews: Travel, Women and Life

I did two separate interviews in the last few weeks about my traveling, picking up women internationally, and living a nomadic lifestyle the past year and a half. The first is the video below, and the second is a longer audio one which revolves as much around building a business and an overall lifestyle as much as it involves pick up.

The first one was with my friend Christian Hudson over at The Social Man [2]. When I was in New York the other week, I stopped by to hang out. We were talking about some of my trips over a couple glasses of wine and mid-way through he decided to break the camera out:

The second interview is an audio interview I did with NextLevelLifestyles.com [3]. It’s a longer interview, running slightly over an hour. The first half covers my philosophy on pick up and some commentary on the PUA scene. Then the second half discusses more about living abroad, how I built an internet business by myself, and the pros/cons of living abroad constantly. There are also separate transcripts presented, so you can skim past the stuff you’re not interested in. Here’s an excerpt on the dangers of the PUA community:

Entropy: Once you reach the point where you can approach, once you reach the point where you can get along well with most girls you approach and you reach a point where girls who are attracted to you, you can date and sleep with them as much as you want – once you go past that it’s all about preference. This guy maybe really into wanting to date models than another guy might be into athletes with PHD’s and another guy wants artsy musician girls and another guys want girls that are older than him. We all have different things that make us happy – that’s what I mean by the lateral movement thing.

That’s when things started to change for me. The second I stopped going for things I was told I should go for for the sake of improvement “You gotta bang hotter and hotter girls. You have to fuck the hot club girls. You have to go home with models.” As soon as I switched from that I focused on girls who I really enjoyed and thought were hot, to tie it back to what we were talking about earlier, that’s when I was able to bring things back to reality. That’s when I was able to stop objectifying every interaction that I had and start enjoying my life again. That was a big thing for me and it’s my own way of pointing out where the community goes too far.

I really think there needs to be an exit strategy in the community.

Here’s an excerpt about the effects of traveling:

Tony: It seems like you’ve been traveling quite a bit over the years. Can you tell us a little bit about that, some of the countries you’ve been to and some of the experiences you’ve had?

Entropy: Man I don’t even know where to start. I’ve been to 31 countries in my life and most of those have come in the last two years. I don’t know exactly how many I’ve been in the last two years. I’ve been living mobiley the last 18 months. I just got back from a big trip in Asia. I guess the big thing with traveling for me, this is cliche to say, but it exposes you to so many new cultures and things that you were never exposed to back home.

I lived in Argentina for awhile and going out and hanging out with new friends and women, it’s a totally different thing. Women down there behave different and are into different things. Whenever I come to the US from an extended time abroad, everything seems so easy – with women but just with life in general. Things that used to stress me out aren’t stressful anymore. Things that used to be a big deal aren’t a big deal anymore. Getting exposed to all those different types of environment and stimuli is really amazing as far as building character and building confidence and experience. Traveling has been fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough.

Also discussed: being an entrepreneur, the internet marketing community, women in third-world countries and prostitution, and what I believe makes someone successful at anything. Check out the full interview here: NextLevelLifestyles Interview: Entropy [4].

Have a happy holidays. I’ll be back next week.
