First off, a big thank you to everyone who responded to the survey I posted last week. As promised, here are the results and some of my comments as well.
Question 1: How did you originally find my blog?
I suppose this means I’ve built some good friends in the blog world – though truthfully I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as this answer went.
Question 2: What is your favorite topic(s) I (generally) blog about?
I’m not surprised on this one, as field reports and self improvement articles are almost always the most visited. But it’s good to know that it’s relatively balanced across this spectrum. I did allow multiple answers. I was also surprised that there isn’t a lot of interest in travel articles – but then I thought back to this article where I offered free travel consultations, and the only people who took me up on it were fellow bloggers.
So I made a decision.
As I prepare to do a lot more travel this year, I’ve built a website that I’ve actually owned for a while into something really beautiful, in my opinion. Bachelor Travels will definitely be something I work on a lot this year, but will have a different tone and theme to it – I plan for it to be a combination of my adventures, city reports, travel hacking, and beautiful photography. It will be something that I’m going to allow my friends and family to read. Don’t worry, if you like the travel content I put out, it’ll all be linked here and easily accessible. This is Trouble, however, will not be linked back from Bachelor Travels.
Don’t worry, all field reports and city data pertaining to meeting foreign cuties and charming their panties off will be posted here. And there will be a lot of it this year.
Question 3: I realize the rantings are just that – rants. Do you skip them because they aren’t always practical advice?
Glad to know this.
Question 4: Have you read Cracking OkCupid?
Not going to lie, this one blew my mind a bit and I was even a little peeved at first.
“I put out all this fantastic free content, and people haven’t even bought the book – which is actually not some internet marketing crap and is some of my best work?!?!”
But then I realized…it’s so niche, not everyone wants it. Not everyone uses OkCupid. In many parts of the world, it’s not even popular.
My anger subsided and I realized I need to build something that everyone can take advantage of – no matter where they live, how old they are, or whether they prefer night/day/online game. Which leads me to…
Question 5: Are you interested in a product about harem building & management (a system – book, videos, spreadsheets, and more)?
I’m doing it, gents. The responses are good enough for me. For those wondering, there will be a system available as well as a single book. Tentatively, the system is going to include:
- A full module course – yeah, it’s going to be that detailed. I want to do this RIGHT. It’ll be more useful than any college class you took, I promise. This will include full narrated slides, videos, and breakdowns of my entire system and way of thinking.
- Exclusive videos that won’t be on YouTube – I’ll delve deep many topics: whether to pursue day/night/online game, how to balance your harem with your life, and finding your ultimate long-term happiness.
- Information on a crazy good dating site no one is talking about…
- Both my date-tracking spreadsheet and my “cost-per-orgasm” spreadsheet that I’ve been utilizing for years now; I’m working on a way to merge them into one nice interface.
- Copies of both The Harem Handbook and Cracking OkCupid.
- If there’s an interest, I might do some sort of weekly/bi-weekly/monthly webinar or Q&A session.
This thing is going to have my best in it, I promise you.
And of course, there will be just the book itself available for those who want it. I like to thank you guys who have been reading forever, so I will be offering some crazy-good early bird deals for both book and system for those who want to be notified (just click here).
Question 6: Have you listened to my podcast, Troublesome Radio?
Obviously I haven’t done a very good job getting it out there that it exists.
Question 7: On a scale of 1-10 (1 = not at all, 10 = YES PLEASE), how interested would you in seeing videos? A combination of guitar lessons, general discussion, and some in-field footage.
Really glad I posted this one.
I did start up a channel a few weeks ago, so go check it out if you voted highly.
Question 8: General feedback
While I’m not going to post the responses, all I have to say is this – THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
They were overwhelming.
I’m always so flattered that people enjoy my blog, and sometimes, I admittedly get down on myself. I think that there’s no sense in continuing to write it. That I should focus on other streams of income (I have to pay the bills somehow, and whilst I don’t care to get rich off of This is Trouble, I’d love to make helping men achieve their dreams my full time job). But…I’m passionate about this thing. More so than anything I’ve done in my life. I look back at some of my old posts, see how far I’ve come, and almost want to cry. It’s helped me achieve some of my own goals and dreams by holding me accountable, too. I had such a hard time growing up, until my early 20s – the more men I can prevent from that pain, or ones older than me I can shed some light on, the better.
So thank you. Really. It means the world to me.
What this survey really told me is this – people want different things. While some people might not be a podcast listener (personally, I rarely listen to other blogger’s podcasts), some might prefer videos. Some people might have no interest in online dating, but might have interest in a product that develops their skills with women as a whole.
Everyone’s different, so it’s important I diversify into a large range of content streams so that there is something for everyone.
Therefore, I’m just gonna put this riiiiight here.

I’ve contacted the winner for a copy of Cracking OkCupid and a profile review; though I’m sure they would have rather won the Powerball, heh. Sorry if you weren’t them. Next time!
Again, thanks so much guys – for reading my stuff and responding to the survey.
