None of the three, I just wanted to wait till I have something interesting to update like a girl story or the situation with my 4 weeks overstayed visa (wanted to go extend it today but then realized it's a holdiay). I'll do it on Monday after 31 days of overstay and report if I'm not in jail.

Supposed to meet "crush" for cinema this Saturday but with Filipinas who knows if I'll get flaked on.

Poker going well but I don't want to flood my thread with it. Including rakeback (I have no idea how much exactly, will see report at the end of the month) my 70% share is around $9 an hour in 42 hours so far. I get 80% if I play 200h a month (or 180h this month as I started on April 3rd) which is still my goal but will be hard.

Dude seriously, don't keep putting off the visa/overstay thing. There is no way it's going to get better for you with time, it can only stand to get worse. It's going to be whatever it's going to be, just go and do it and hope that it will only be a stern look and a fine of a couple k peso.

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

Just get in a cab, say "immigration", wear long pants. Act clueless once there, find the female security guard that works there, she is helpful, and ask for her mercy.

If it's hot outside when you leave with your passport all sorted get one of the kids with an umbrella to hail a cab for you for 20 pesos. Go back to room and contemplate how lucky you are to be there.

Then, go hand out some GD numbers and smash like you mean it.

We're starting to get impatient with you young fella.

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



WTF, I'm about to meet my crush at the cinema as our 2nd "date" and she shares this on her fb 4 hours before we meet. I've already felt pressured enough about getting friendzoned without this and that's why I've been procrastinating our 2nd "date" for so long. **** this, what does her doing this even mean? What should I do tonight when we're at the cinema? This **** is more pressure than playing 100nl on a $500 BR with your own money

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

Easy don't look for for true friendship, make sure she finds true love! Stop worrying so much. You need to commit to her, if that is what you want. I really don't get your mentality to be honest.

It looks like you she's telling you to stop thinking of her as a friend? (Were you acting all like a girl, when you first met?) I know because I tend do do the same with hot girls, you behave differently, right and that's the problem right there, you are setting yourself up to be friends. You need to act exactly the same as if the girl was a 6 and you are just trying to bang her. You will be more manly in her eyes, take more action, make her think you don't need her, she needs you. Not aggressively, or like an idiot but more charming and with some fun. Not arrogant but confident, do you get my drift.

The way you act with 5's and 6's, you are in control because you know you can do better, she knows you can do better, that's why we **** so many 5's and 6's with ease!

This next bit might sound harsh but I think you need to hear it. Stop acting like a child! Stop with this non sense posting, about what you should do.

I told you this already, man up already. If you want the girl, you need to go for her. If you get rejected, then you move on, it's that simple. Sure it will hurt that you got rejected but you'll get over it.

What you are doing is creating a mental block before you have even tried to go for her. You are essentially creating this problem in your head and preventing yourself to take action.

Don't be that guy that does not try to get what he wants because of fear of being rejected.

O and one last thing, from what I can gather you are setting yourself up to be friend-zoned with your own actions. Have a think about it.

And did you finally go to immigration or not? Sounded like you had today/yesterday (Monday,) slated for doing it, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if you didn't get around to it.

You guessed correctly, I didn't go. Overstay score is at 34 days now.

It didn't go beyond friends.

First she was 90 min late because she had fallen asleep as she was sick. I thought to myself "sick" was a standard excuse of a Filipina flaking or maybe just a little sick and I asked if she can come anyway as I was already there waiting at the mall. Then she showed up, sick as ****, coughing the whole evening and could barely talk. She didn't even want to say hi with more contact than a tap on the shoulder because she didn't want to make me sick too. Great start of a date (not). I didn't make approaches to her in the cinema. Apart from the sickness problem she also made very clear she just wants to be friends from her behavior. Even the way she dressed - what girl wears boyish jeans shorts and a plain red backwards cap when going to the cinema with a guy that likes her? There wasn't just zero effort to impress me, there was negative effort to make sure I get the message I'm friendzoned.

I decided I'll fully commit myself to making money and ****ing random sluts from now and this time I mean it. When I'm old I don't wanna look back at my time as a 22 year old in Asia and think to myself "Wtf was I doing sitting in my room all day or chasing one girl?". I still haven't fully given up on crush though, I still think she's a top 0.1% and I'll find my way to her heart but it won't be my priority anymore. Maybe giving her less attention will make her curious in me again.

I don't know what my problem is that I'm so lazy doing nothing all day - not even texting Tinder sluts - but I've had enough of it. They say if you tell your goals to other people you're more likely to work on them so here are mine:
  1. Extend visa in Makati on Monday after 38 days of overstay... and don't get jailed
  2. While in Makati which is the area with the hottest girls and nicest malls, hand out my number to 30 girls in one day. And post some pics of how hot girls in Makati malls are, pics of my notes or anything interesting that happens.
  3. Reach 180 hours of poker in April which is my staker's requirement for me to get 80% instead of 70%.
  4. Give crush less attention and stop contact for a week (we used to text everyday) to show her I have my own life and I'm not her text buddy or best friend. After a week of silence, meet her for some interesting 3rd date and while things are going well kiss her without being scared of rejection. I'd rather risk our friendship than not try anything.
Below are my results pre-rakeback after 17 days so far (HM and PT don't work on this site so no graphs). I've been playing 40nl* and I hope to move up to 80nl after 20-30k hands. I was mostly 1-tabling because I play fast tables like PS' "Zoom" and while playing I was working on a bet script to make multi tabling on this crap software easier and I finished the script last night. I'll be mostly 2-tabling from today. Note I've only played 72.5 hours and it's the 20th of the month! Maybe very ambitious but I still think I can reach the 180h goal if I turn my work ethic upside down. I'll need to average 10h a day with no days off for the next 11 days.
*Btw I said the stake was 50nl not 40nl because I was paranoid people could find out the site but I don't care anymore as I'll be revealing the site in the near future.

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

Are you ******ed? Is this whole thing just a level, seriously?

Let me explain, I'm not calling you names but your story does not add up logically at all.

You seem angry that she was A. late and B that she did not dress to impress you.

Could the reason be that she was sick have anything to do with that? She's sick, so you expect her NOT to dress in something very comfortable? Again is your brain working correctly?

She even came out of her house to meet you despite being sick, you'd think for a girl not interested in you that she would just tell you to **** off already, especially being sick and stuff.

Look I honestly don't care if you go for her or not but your logic does not make sense when you are analysing these situations in my opinion. Of course she could still only want to be friends and I was not there to get her expressions etc but from the information you have given here that's really all we can base our judgments on.

I thought you're calling me that because I didn't make approaches to her in the cinema.

Alright, her being sick makes my analysis of her clothes pointless. And no she wouldn't tell me to **** off, she's clearly interested in some way but everything - even her own words - points at her only being interested in being friends. Anyway I'll find out next date, until then I'll stop bothering and focus on other girls

She is clearly not interested in him, when it take someone 2 months to meet you when its so obv you are in to them, you are not that important to them.

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

Yeah forget that girl bro shes a time waster.

Good stuff on making some cash on the poker. Should be easy for you to put most your focus on getting better and making money at that in your shoes. Get your roll up and life will get sweeter.

Kind of funny cause im about to start a story with "when i was younger" like *** im a old man now lol. Anyways i used to work as a server like 17-early 20s. I worked at this place for years so i was a server trainer and i was in the leet restaurant social circle with my roommates. This place was great because it constantly was a rotating door of hot girls coming in and going out and as a trainer id get to get to know them right off rip for a week of a training doing classes and walks and ****. Me and two of my buddies from high school worked there and shared a place so it was a great set up to get the girls over and party etc.

Anyways this was perfect but the thing was i was a noob because A. My one roommate every girl was obsessed with which lowers my value because hes a stud(luckily hes married now that ***** haha) B. I'd always go for the hottest girls rather then the middle ground girls who were into me which led me spending more nights alone then i should have. I got laid of course but man i could added quite a few more notches on my count if i knew what i knew now about life.

Now i look back and im like damn id love to bang xxx and xxx and xxx who was into me but i was dumb and trying to go for that one girl who i couldnt get. Now id love to get those other girls who i passed chasing the stunners who were into my roommate. I'd never even have a chance with alot of them because im in my 30s now and i dont have that hook up of working with them etc. Yeah i screwed that up i should of got laid way more then i did.

My point being is lower your standards a bit. If the market is 3 8s and a bunch of 5-6s then bang out some 5-6s if the 8s arent into u. Improve your game for when you do get to meet the 8s with practicing on the other ones. Theirs going to be a day when your older and your going to look back to now and be like man i should of banged those 6's when i was in my peak early 20s in the Phils. Get out there get your confidence going and bang some average looking girls if u got to.

You might be right, I have not been following it exactly, I just thought it was weird that he expected her to dress all nice when she was sick. Or that she could barely talk because she was ill, yet he expected full on convo's or something.

I thought he did not pursue her for 2 months and that he kind of flaked on her, though I'm not 100% sure on that. I thought I read it somewhere.
