Not Everyone is a Douchebag, People!

douchebag 2

Raul told me a funny story the other day about a conversation he had with his mom recently. She’s a really nice lady, which is strange considering what a depraved misanthrope her son is. Anyway, he happened to refer to someone as a “douchebag”, and his mom cracked up. He apologized for his crudeness, but she said,

“No no, it’s just when I was growing up (in the late 50s-early 60s) we used to call people douchebags all the time. Are kids calling people douchebags again?”

Amazing. Anyway, that story got me thinking about the modern douchebag and the impact he has had on society. The douchebag and his opposite, the hipster, are the yin and yang … [Read more]

Real Men go to Yoga Class

Yoga chicks are limber

As part of Single Dude Travel’s ongoing commitment to keeping you healthy and successful while also helping you get laid, I’d like to convince you macho single dudes to go to yoga class. We’ve already discussed how real men go to the Farmers’ Market, now it’s time to enter the land of yoga mats and leotards.

I know, I know, it sounds pretty gay. I mean, you’re just stretching, right? And there’s a 65-year-old grandmother in there! We’re men, we don’t do yoga! Wrong. Now I’m just like Hank Hedgehopper in that I love doing things at the gym that are hard and awesome, like slamming a sledgehammer into an old tire a bunch of times … [Read more]

Up Yours, Rebecca Watson!

I Hate You With My Vagina

Since we at Single Dude Travel started this blog we have been exposed to the so-called “blogosphere” and it’s been very interesting that this little world really does have a whole life of its own.  It’s amazing the number of geniuses, retards, cool dudes, fake hot chicks, fake hot chick ass-kissers, real hot chick ass-kissers, douchebags, hipsters and assholes are out there.  Boris recently called my attention to an incident that started in real life and has quickly become a heated discussion in the blog pseudoreality.  Many people have weighed in on it already but I feel compelled to add my two cents.

There is this chick named Rebecca Watson who … [Read more]

Doing your homework and being a good tourist

Tourists

When you’re traveling you want to avoid being a douchebag, an asshole, a DAFF, or just the typical Ugly American (or Brit, or whatever) Tourist.  It’s just not cool and six foot blonde Russian chicks are not turned on at all by Dumb Western Tourist Guy (DWTG).  So before you travel do a little homework about your target destination. Doing your homework on a destination helps differentiate you from the typical douchebag tourist and it makes you into someone that the locals find cool, interesting and worthy of getting to know. People from smaller countries are usually flattered when others take time to learn about their homeland, so do it, it gives you a great … [Read more]

The Single Dude's Guide to Kiev, Ukraine

Maidan Nezalezhnosti Kiev

Kiev, Ukraine, a major city right in the heart of Eastern Europe. It’s certainly a place worth visiting at least once but I’m going to have to surprise even myself here and give it a mixed review. I’ve only visited Kiev twice, once recently and once many years ago. I was surprised to find the women less beautiful than I remembered and the city itself more beautiful. If you haven’t been to Eastern Europe yet you may not know that many Eastern Europe cities are huge concrete wastelands of architectural diarrhea courtesy of the communist era. There are exceptions though such as Prague, Riga, Zagreb and to some degree definitely Kiev.

Let’s talk about the other major … [Read more]

A Beginner's Guide to the Women of Miami

Models on the Beach

Let me say right now that this attempt to explain Miami will be in no way comprehensive. It would take a team of experts to do justice to the penile playground that is the greater Miami Fort Lauderdale area. I’m simply flattered that Charlie asked me to take a crack at it. This is the first of what I hope will be many entries from other contributors so that Single Dude Travel’s readership can get a taste of what’s going on down there.

So, what is this Miami thing made of? The first ingredient is money. Crazy boatloads of it, much of it arriving in crazy expensive boats and planes. The next ingredient is drugs. Crazy boatloads of … [Read more]

Single Chick Dating Advice for the Ladies

Insane Chick

For the ladies: logical things you SHOULD already know about dating: If you’ve made a habit of being irrational, it’s a problem. Not because it doesn’t “work,” although it doesn’t, but because it’s making you unhappy. So, please, just give this a shot.

Disclaimer: This is not a list of things you should do to get a guy. This is a list of things you should do in order to be content with your love life and stop being a pain in everyone else’s ass.

1. Don’t be competitive with other women.

There will always be other women who are more beautiful and charming you. When you hate on them it says a lot more about you … [Read more]

Wet Your Whistle at the Right Watering Hole

A Bar

So boys, it’s been a pretty amazing day!  You spent the afternoon at the coffee shop here in Buenos Aires relaxing and getting the phone numbers of some delicious mamacitas and setting up dates for later in the week, and now it’s time to go out with the boys and get into trouble at the bar.  But there’s such a bevy of options on the main bar drag, so how do you choose one?  The girls are out tonight and they want to meet some cool dudes like you but you need to make sure that where you go is the right place.  You can’t just go anywhere and have great success at the bar or club.  Many … [Read more]
