Please guys, we know it’s fun. I love my guy friends. It’s super fun to hang out with the guys and go out and watch the game or play sports or just go out and get super drunk. But for travel, the big stag trips just don’t work for what we’re trying to do and furthermore make it harder for everyone else. Eastern Europe, courtesy of the discount airlines like Ryanair and others, is quickly becoming a huge sausage fest and making it hard for everybody to get laid.
I lived in the summer of 2007 in Prague, in the Czech Republic. It’s a beautiful town with a lot to offer culturally, cheap beer and beautiful women. The problem though was that 10 years ago the city was crawling with beautiful friendly and supposedly easy women and word got out. Then Ryanair started flying huge groups of tourists in for super cheap out of the UK mainly, and inspired by the stories of easy beautiful women and cheap beer, the English stag parties started coming like locusts. Today, Prague is one of the worst places in Eastern Europe to meet girls because it’s been completely overrun with the hordes of drunk English dudes. Bars after 11 PM in Prague routinely have a 4-to-1 guy-to-girl ratio. If you approach a Czech girl in Prague and try to speak English nowadays you’re likely to get completely shot down with the “I don’t speak English” routine, or simply ignored. To meet Czech girls the summer I spent there I had to learn to speak Czech (which is an super difficult language) and do all sorts of advanced game playing bullshit with these girls just to get a clean slate with them.
Today’s Lesson 1: Avoid Prague, the English have ruined it for everybody.
Lesson 2: Don’t be the guy who comes over for just a couple quid on the cheapo airlines with 12 of their best bloke friends and gets super drunk in the bars by 10PM and then starts drunkenly hitting on every hot or not chick he can focus his double vision on, who then goes home a couple of days later and a couple hundred quid poorer and wonders why he didn’t get laid on his trip to Bulgaria.
Large groups are intimidating and unattractive to these girls. Also, like everyone, when you or I hang out with so many guys friends at the bar, it’s pretty much impossible to not get totally fucked up, and being obviously drunk is the best way to not get past square one when you meet a girl.
So please guys, pretty please, don’t do this. You’re ruining it for everybody. Especially you English guys. Your English stag parties are by far the worst offenders. If you’re English you already have two strikes against you. I don’t know how many strikes you get in cricket, but in baseball that means you have only one more chance. Don’t get me wrong, I love you guys. Whenever I see an English stag party at the pub I always come over and have a drink and everyone is always super friendly and we often drink a bunch of shots and get hammered before I go on my way, but when you travel and want meet a girl she’s not going to be into it. Don’t be like the rest of your drunk asshole football fan (DAFF) countrymen. Travel in smaller groups, or if you have to travel in larger groups split into smaller groups when you go out.
Do you get it? Stag trips are the best way to not get laid and ruin it for the rest of us. Please guys, help us all out.
