Man Law #63 – Be “Of The World”

The world is a book, those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine

As far back as I can remember, the simple act of travel has proven to be irresistible to women. Your ultimate goal is to be a Renaissance man. A guy who can not be pigeon holed into a particular category and one who defies all sense of normalcy. You want to be seen as genuine.  One way of doing this is by increasing your worldy knowledge (i.e. turning on the BBC instead of CNN). Simply knowing what goes on outside of your backyard increases your “attractive points” exponentially and if you can say that you’ve visited the birthplace of Beethoven or the museums of St. Petersburg, you will instantly be seen as a “worldly” man.

With women like this running around the streets of Russia, who needs more of an incentive? It's also generally understood that what happens in another country, stays in another country!

Why is this important?

It will transform you from “Joe the Plumber” from around the block to “Joe the World-Traveling Philanthropist”.  Despite Joe’s financial status in this world, the fact that he has visited other countries is very attractive to many women. Think the two are the same? Think again. One will be struggling to go home with a phone number, while the other will struggle to fit all of the dates in his calendar in one week. How many bums have walked the Paris streets of the Champs-Élysées.

Of course, traveling cost money, so be sure to check places like Hotwire and Expedia for awesome deals. And if that doesn’t work out – learning a language is the next best thing.  Expand your worldliness by listening to music of other cultures.  Some of those German Rappers may have grew up listening to Tupac and Biggie!  While this should be common sense, make sure you don’t just visit the bars and clubs in Greece and Italy when you visit.  Take your camera and snap a picture by the leaning tower of Pisa. Upload these types of pictures to Facebook, not the ones of you doing keg stands after you won the kickball tournament!

    i’m a huge proponent of this as the editor of this site can attest. I travel often and no matter where I travel to I’m maximizing my experience with the local fare and people. I will venture to a bar or pub or restaurant by myself and ask the waiters/waitresses for great local spots. I’ll take pics of the food and drink to document the experience. If I meet new people, and I oft do, I’ll exchange information and maybe tryt o hang out with them once more before I depart the area. Being from somewhere different lends to this “of the world” characteristic.
    Also, there is the new rage (given the current economy) of the “stay-cation” whereby you travel a few hours drive. This minor event can be a great selling point. Especially, in areas rich with history and culture. I met a girl while in Brisbane who felt the need to see more of her own country before venturing too far out to see elsewhere. I too have a similar desire, as I have a personal “Quest for 50,” meaning I want to visit all 50 United States.
    This overall subject lends to the need to be a “jack of all trades, but a master of destiny.” (just thought of that change at the end right now, enjoy)

    You hit on a good point DJ Long.. You don’t have to go very far to take a trip.. I have lived in several different worlds right here in the States. Of course the idea of exotic places, a man who can afford the trip, and name drop rivers in France is extremely attractive..No doubt…And so is a man who is interested in other people and the world around him enough to try something new in his own backyard. A man who is willing to explore new things and leave his comfort zone..Correct me if I’m wrong ladies, but this adventurous spirit is quite attractive as well..

    CB, I think you hit the nail on the head. Whether you go to Miami or Madrid, just leave your normal safe realms and go out there and explore. It gives you plenty of things to talk about and it shows that you are not content just staying at home all the time watching TV with no motivation.
