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

maybe i havent been in asia for a long time..but how the hell is jeans and blacktop "elegant"? seems standard af.



YF...jeans 24/7 yo. (although i dont leave my place later than 3pm...and only really go places with aircon...and if drinking outside bar dont feel heat).

flower shirt blows.



confused by #4. are those jeans or trakkies? looks dodgy by the ankle. but dodgy camera angle maybe


ofc caps can be pulled off. a ton of filipinas wear them and look good

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

Hour goals (and handing out note goals) are incredibly dumb. The extra 10% rb is nice but it's not worth it if you don't want to play. I mean from a monetary sense too: if you are playing when you shouldn't be just to get hours in then you are likely costing yourself.

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

I used to be a huge procrastinator and have fixed the problem now. From what I read, most of the time it comes from being a perfectionist/fear of failure. When you end up failing something such as missing a deadline, you have the excuse "oh it's just because I didn't study enough" because you feel that facing the truth that you might fail something after putting effort is a direct reflection of your worth as a human being (i.e. you are a failure). When in fact it's obviously okay to make mistakes. To fix this specific issue, you might want to read the book "How to Be an Imperfectionist" by Stephen Guise. My friend read it recently and highly recommends it.

What you're doing is legendary, wish you the best of luck mate. Based on that picture i'm gonna say your johnson is gonna receive some serious lovin in the coming years

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

What happens if I go to immigration and when I get the bill the cost turns out to be higher than I have in cash? Do I get jailed at the spot or do I get the chance to walk outside to get more cash from ATM or from my condo? Does it have to be the same day, the next day or how does it work?

I realized a bit late that I need a lot of cash and my ATM card has a ridiculous limit of 200€ per 7 continuous days in the Philippines as a security measurement. I can withdraw another 200€ on Wednesday I think, otherwise I'll use my Skrill card but it's more fees and takes a few days to deposit from bank to Skrill.

Hey Man.. Stop thinking too much and go already to the immigration..If the thing you afraid is happening (short of cash)just talk your way out of it(say you'll be back with more cash later..Bla..Bla.bla..)..the worse they can do is deported your a.s.s back to your country..

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

The office is in the same building than a bank, so you can probably go pick cash at an ATM. But seriously, what the hell are you waiting for ?

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

Waiting for my card limit to reset on Wednesday. I called my bank and they can't fix it, I have 200€ limit per week here in the Philippines.

When I go there I want to have at least 15k, better 20k on me. I don't wanna risk not having enough cash with me and getting deported or jailed.

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

Most sources say I need to pay about 13k which I already have in cash today but what if I'm there and it's more and I haven't brought enough?

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

A couple of more days won't make a difference now, wait to get more cash. I don't know about the PI but in Thailand immigration detention is not somewhere you want to be and can get held there for quite awhile. Considering how f***ed up the Philippines are I wouldn't bank on them having a drastically better system.

No the worst is being detained on the spot and having his cellphone taken so he can't call someone for the cash, that's how it'd go down in Thailand. And deportation isn't free you stay detained until someone pays for the flight

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

3% success rate? I admire the fortitude to keep on trucking.

Very interested in OPs adventure with immigration. Itd be a sick troll if he didnt log on for like 5 days in a row then said "jk". Should give someone his 2p2 info to update us if he gets pinched.

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

3% as far as numbers handed out to girls who come straight to my room to bang without meeting elsewhere

i am pretty sure that throwing on a pair of jeans isnt going to make the 97% of those that aren't down feel any less scared about that

clearly the bigger issue is not actually going out on dates, i would guess 75% of the girls i approach dont even notice what type of pants were worn, they are so shocked and if anything only remember my face.... many have even said they dont remember what my face looks like and ask for a selfie

A decent pair of jeans cost $100, can last ten years, and will definitly improve your chances by 5-10%. Another 10% with a button-up shirt that fits well. Trust me women notice.

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

You know what really tilts me if girls anywhere in the world do it? Blocking you during or after a friendly text conversation without any explaination. It happened to me only 2 times in my life, one in Europe and one in Asia which was the 6/10 from yesterday so I'm not tilted about the loss of pussy, I would feel the same if it was a 1/10 or a guy or if I had hundreds of 10's willing to meet me, I'm just tilted about how ****ty of a person you have to be to simply click a block button to save you 20 seconds of your life instead of writing one sentence with some sort of reason and ending the sentence with bye and blocking the person if they keep texting you. Hell, you can even block them right after sending your message, everything is better than blocking them without saying anything right after an unrelated friendly conversation.

To me that's equal to just turning your back and walking away midst a friendly real life conversation as you realize the other person is uninteresting and instead of saying a word you just turn your back and walk away thinking it's not awkward as long as you don't hear or see them, completely ignoring their feelings or the fact that they are left with even more questions just so you don't have to deal with the effort or awkwardness of ending the conversation.

What a ****. At least now I can use her to further illustrate my looks scale for the thread.

Lesson learned: There are no freerolls like that, there's always a chance she just wants to chat or waste your time in other ways.

ya your probably right, i would have banged 3 or 4 vietnamese girls just by wearing jeans, a button up shirt, handing them my number and asking them to come to my hotel


im not saying that dressing nicer can't help with girls, but when it comes to the way i do things there is no friggin way it would improve chances anywhere near as much as you say

20%-25% of women dont take numbers from a stranger, go to their home, and put out right away with no alcohol involved

$100 on jeans, lolwow

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

dude you really need to chill out when it comes to these girls, you are reading way too much into simple things and worrying about 1 girl way too much

the girls jean shorts and cap meant nothing, she put less thought into it then you do and that has nothing to do with whether u have a chance to bang or not


and a girl blocking you in phils for no reason is totally f'ing standard........ i have been bff's with girls and chatted with them non stop for days on end and then out of nowhere blocked..... probably 50 or more times

play a high volume low success game, that way you don't have to tilt over little **** like that.... if you are too invested in any one girl its gonna drive you insane

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

I wasn't invested at all this time and found her boring and annoying but still this is very weird behavior to me. I'm too nice for this world, when I have conversation with anyone whether they're hot or ugly, girl or guy, whether I like them or not, I always try build a connection with them and people that do that trample that effort under their foot.
