I have a question for BEF. When you come to Philippines will it be to bang a bunch of girls and get it out of your system or are you too into the gf and just coming to experience a bit of life in SEA before settling down in Suburbia?

It’ll be less of a sexcation and more of a general degeneracy tour; basically I got it all out of my system in the 3 plus years I’ve spent in college (have you ever used tinder on a state college campus??? Read: endless 18-22 sorority-like girls who are living away from home for the first time).

Lots of people make the same kind of trip to Vegas before resigning to the real world in the US, and like I said my living expenses will likely be comped by my family who I have a really nice relationship with despite the distance (as is the Filipino way.) Despite being raised in the country and achieving success my previously mentioned uncle recognizes the degen paradise the country is and would likely endorse if not sponsor my behavior. If I went rolled for P40KNL and ran well I’d be able to pay them back with a really nice vacation to boracay at the end of my trip.

Would most likely start a travel thread but the content would probably revolve less around every day life/womanizing and more around the live poker scene. That as well as some hand histories of me botching hands and getting needled for it in broken English by nitty Filipino regs. Likely less entertaining than this here thread.

You don't seem too excited about this traditional "endgame" of western life. Why are you saying it's inevitable and why would you sign up for it if you aren't looking forward to it?
Took about a week of reading here and there before bed/inbetween grinds.

Most of what I said and how I worded it was tongue-in-cheek. Current gf is drastically +EV in my situation. She’s a nurse at a federal job and already owns a sizable house. Living with her (as is the plan when my current lease is up in my college town) is gonna allow me to pay off school debt in a reasonable amount of time which is something that must get done before I have any real fun anyway. She’s also real cool and I enjoy my time around her which I can’t say for a lot of girls I’ve met in college.

Going along with what I think ILA said, it’s funny that you ask me such a question when you’re in a such an omegalul rush to snap wife-up any girl you pie once or twice. If you are gonna get wifed up, (and this is pretty dependent on the situation) western girls provide greater ROI. Your situation is best suited for single man-whoring IMO. The greatest part about your situation that is harder to find around here is you can weasel your way into steady sex without committing yourself; which is why I (and others in the thread) think your approaching the situation all wrong by finding LTR’s.

The problem with the modern world is that men largely can't / don't do much for each other anymore, largely have a hard time making a decent living and compete with one another for scraps (millennials and younger) and everything is subverted by women so we do stuff with them even though they're all hellbent on turning us into their personal castrated workhorse that hands over all his cash and then some. It feels easier to be around them because you think you aren't competing with them (not so true anymore outside of STEM unfortunately) and subconsciously think you're forming a bond that guarantees more sex in the future even though any prolonged interaction with women significantly lowers your value to beta provider in their mind. (what kind of busy high value alpha guy would have time to do random stuff with her on the regular?)

It's tough to keep winning this game in the long run even with the Philippines advantage and next thing you know she baby trapped you or found some other way to lock you down.

It's like you're playing heads up against a higher stakes reg every day who is much more adapt at finding leaks in your game and exploiting them - all under the disguise of being a normal human being. She'll outplay you, feign weakness and bleed you dry until a bigger whale comes along.


[x] more sex

[ ] prolonged interaction

[x] lots of infection

Wondering if OP got out from underneath fake internet monies before it came back down. Could probably stay in the Phils another year if he sold at the proper time.

Seriously doubt it. Maybe he was pulling a bit out here and there for daily living expenses, but he doesn't like pulling out all that much.

Agreed. His approach is super bizarre for his situation and what he seems to be looking for.

Said trip probably won’t take place until about a year from now (my projected graduation date) but I’ll definitely thread it because I don’t see a lot around 2p2 w/pictures etc about live games over there.

And LOL just another example of poor pull out game resulting in life tilt.

I wasn't forced to go and I'm not interested in banging the girl again, but I was curious what a Filipino wake is like. Plus leaving my house and meeting a stranger's Filipino family makes for some interesting cultural exchanges. It's the same reason I accepted the invitation to the birthday in Tagaytay and the half Japanese family's house.

The wake was at U.P. campus, kinda far from Pasig. There were tons of people of all ages and I met her whole family and close friends. The older generations have a lot of superstitions like you can't wear red at the wake and someone has to be in the room with the coffin at all times (it was a 3 day wake and they took night shifts just to guard the coffin) and they can't fall asleep or it is believed the corpse will disappear into thin air...

I made a lot of new contacts and got a free ride home from her family's friends.

I'm in no rush and that's not true at all. Only 25% of girls that I had sex with I tried to make my girlfriend. I think that's a pretty normal number for a relationship-oriented guy that has a normal amount of sex partners (1 girl/month average).

Also I don't get wifed up, I get gf'd up. I don't get into relationships with the initial goal to get married, just have a good time.

I simply prefer the girlfriend experience over hookups and we've talked about that ITT many times.

If you are walking to save delivery fee on pizza you almost certainly cannot afford GFE

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I enjoy walking and I walk an hour everyday for the health benefits. If I can save money by doing something I routinely do for free, it's a snap.

7 months of incredible GFE with my first ex cost me less than $40/month. Lying ***** cost the same.

He's like Michael Scott when he knows he has something everyone wants to hear and is milking it for all it's worth.

You don't know what a GFE is. It's a mutual agreement dependent on financial incentive.

There's a chance your girls might be naively playing the long game but I doubt it.


What your doing is fine imo as long as youre content living with a 3rd world standard of living. As long as youre clear with the girls so they don't expect anything more.


This doesn't work with 95% of foreigners because they spend much more money on day to day things than most SEA girls can afford.

lol I'm not milking it, the lying ***** story is literally too long to write down and the Iya story only makes sense after hearing lying ***** story.

You mean the hooker term GFE? I'm talking about the actual experience of having a gf. I don't know about GFE. All I know is I had a hot gf for 7 months that set me back less than $40/month (in dates) and I wanna do the same thing again. I never promised her marriage and our relationship was based on lots of sex, watching movies and going on dates that she paid 50% cos she wanted to.

You know who else they told it was too long to write down? This guy:



And where did it get him? Well, nowhere basically and 3 years wasted, but that's beside the point. He did it!

Well when you put it that way, it doesn't sound so bad!

I'm curious if you had stayed together longer if you'd ever envisioned a long-term relationship with her (not necessarily marriage) or if you knew all along it'd be a fixed term thing.

It'd be interested to hear her take on the whole thing. Maybe she saw marriage in the future, but I guess you can't help her thoughts as long as you were straightforward about your intentions with her.

Yah, this was kind of an issue with my ex-girlfriend in Mexico. Somehow I found an anti-gold digger and even though I mostly limited my lifestyle I still could never live close to the average Mexican. She wanted me to move out of the nice area, didn't like fancy clothes or restaurants, etc. It was kinda weird, but I appreciated that she didn't care about my money. In the end though it was too hard to give up some of the things we're used to as westerners.

If Info can live a standard of life close to what SEA girls are usually living and be happy, then I think he will have a big advantage. It shouldn't be too hard for anyone with a bit of motivation to be earning $10-15/hour in a location-independent manner on the internet. Sounded like his ex would have been a perfect fit in that regard. Shame she usually only brought her C game to the bedroom though.

The line becomes very blurred in SEA.

Have you ever had a gf in Germany? I personally don't see how any somewhat educated foreigner believes a "girlfriend" in SEA is at any level comparable to having a girlfriend in their home country. Is there a real connection? Do you guys talk about anything besides superficial bs? There's just too big of a cultural/educational gap between you and any girl that is willing to be your gf living busto.

The small % of girls in SEA that would be more suitable are generally well off and would be comparable to a girl in the first world and therefore wouldnt want to live the lifestyle you choose.


Edit: Maybe i'm just a grumpy old man. To each their own.

I agree so why doesn't the OP try playing online poker for a living?

Are you calling this female, from this "story" you've yet to post a b - witch? I mean to me it sounds like you come from a weird stand point of expectations in SE Asia. Don't get angry at them it's just not worth it.

China used to be the sweet spot, but I have seen most of the above average looking girls I knew that were familiar with western culture and fluent in English upgrading to mostly very wealthy western guys over the years when the broke western bfs financial status didn't improve by her late 20s.

The girls I have known in SEA that really understood western thinking and had a comparable intellect to an average western girl with an average white collar job all went to private schools and subsequently colleges in a western country. We're talking half a million USD in total educational expenses probably.

Their parents were largely corrupt government officials and these girls had high expectations towards a guy that they could show off to their friends as a status symbol. They were also not the type of girls that rich local guys would marry (not a beauty queen or too independently minded).

Girls from these kinds of backgrounds in SEA are just an ultra -EV situation to get into and why even bother when you could just get such a girl back home without being very high status and wealthy. Any qualities that western guys commonly associate with Asian girls like being more submissive / obedient are just for show with upper class girls any way as most people have been sucking up to them all their lives and most upper class guys are just as cucked as western ones if not even more.
