Duke Nukem? Fuckin rad.

Gun is probably the best option but from my personal experience as a big man, it is one of the best deterrents there is. They look for easy targets not someone that might beat their ass. Obviously it's not an option for everybody though.

i've been in the same situation and it sounds like OP lost frame by showing fear.

there are a lot of factors going on here.

  1. he will probably get a gringo pass, so a lot of what I am going to say is moot. This is the over-riding factor. However, the gringo pass also corresponds to a near-permanent beta status.

  2. the first fail was the fact that OP thought it was dangerous and his plate knew it was safe. This is lack of situational awareness / street smarts. If your woman has more street smarts than you, she can't see you as alpha.

  3. nothing wrong with saying "hey this place isn't safe lets eat at my place". the problem is that (a) if it is in fact safe, you look like a pussy (imagine a foreign male friend communicating fear to you at 10 pm at a giant american mall in an upper class white neighborhood - hey would look like a giant pussy). But if you in fact know that it is not safe and have a way to communicate this to her, she will be grateful / feel protected.

  4. showing fear is beta AF, especially if there are no thuggish men around and you are just scared b/c you are having flashbacks. you are literally screaming to her that you cannot protect her.

  5. showing fear / feeling fear subcommunicates to theives that you are vulnerable / a good target and increases your risk of getting mugged. Most muggers are pussies and prey on fear. Having confident body language and staring them down is enough to avoid most muggings.

  6. If muggers approach you and your girl in a third world country, adopt dominant body language (lift your chest, squint your gaze, slightly bow your arms, possibly clench your fists) and stare the guys down. As they approach, walk towards them confidently like you are going to mug them, push the girl behind you. they will just keep walking. Instill fear in them. If you lift, they will shit their pants. If they proceed to mug you, just give them your shit, hold frame. Don't talk shit, don't get aggressive. Don't beg. Just treat them as street tax men, pay your dues and move on.

I'm worried about showing weakness to her.

Address the weakness and you address the worry. I come from a similar background and I've never really worried or had safety issues because I grew up fighting/training when I was younger. These days I don't have issues because I weigh over 220 and it shows I'm light on my feet. I'm not the biggest dude but if someone's looking to start something/jump me they'll hesitate; and hesitation is key.

I'd suggest a martial discipline if you aren't already adept. Striking/boxing is my background and I've recently got converted into training BJJ(it's a humbling but exciting experience) so those are the two I'd recommend. That said one similarity I've found in the majority of 3rd world countries I've travelled is life is cheap. I may be confident in my abilities but I still mitigate risk where possible. You don't have to carry an arsenal or be Bruce Lee; but be prepared.

Godspeed and good luck!

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
