right now your score as the new 'hit-and-nit' benchmark young stud in the easiest country to score is :
1 new girl meeting / month
0.5 bang / month (not an 8+)


you may want to review your table selection strategy

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

Its just better to spend your first meeting with a girl 1 on 1 so you can focus on showing her your value. Adding in friends and random location adds in a bunch of random factors that u dont need. A cheap casual first date close to your condo is what u want. Then you can easily go from place to your condo and be in control of the action. Also if the cheap casual date fails hard like your date with that other girl its ez to just call it a night and be done with it. Your just getting way to invested in a girl u havent even hung out with which is going to lead to u being needy and caring to much.

Also her being with her friends makes it a lower chance shes going to sleep with u. If shes a good girl she might not want to look like a hoe in front of her friends. Just seems like your putting yourself in a spot to get friend zoned more often by doing this island thing with her and all of her friends before even meeting the girl in person.

If it was a island trip with u and her in sharing a hotel room then obv you would be getting laid everytime and i could see why u were going for it. If shes going to bang you on this trip with her friends there she was going to bang you regardless.

It's not table selection but lack of volume, I only started handing out large amounts of notes 5 days ago. With this laziness and lack of motivation I would fail 6's too and 1's as well.

Unrelated update: 6/16 textbacks

I'm used to using imperial from when I talked to Tinder girls who always use imperial. Maybe they assume just because I'm white I use it

It's not the 1st meet, it's one day after our supposed 1st meet, but yes what you're saying still applies.

Go to the first date and see how it goes.

Also, I've learnt something from HYMYM. Never make plans further ahead than you’ve been together :

Will chip in a few more buck on paypal for this 8s facebook as well

Everyone's being super analytical and serious. Not that big a deal at all if you invite yourself along, it's the Philippines you can get away with anything

Decent chance it goes really well

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

[QUOTE=Info Shove;52130058]So I flawed my textback rate by only allowing roughly half of the girls to text me plus ones that figure out a 0 is missing?

Most Filipinos will know what network you are using just by your phone number. Adding the 0 in front of a mobile number ensures that you will get through, except when overseas.

So no, you are failing due to other reasons.

Early 20's skinny jeans wearing white guy in the Philippines. You can probably sit on a camping chair on the sidewalk in front of your condo with a cooler of beer and just collect numbers.

Guy like this should be getting laid without any problems at all.

Add to the fact that he looks like he's in good shape, should be 1 a day not 1 a month. Unless he's unbelievably ugly or deformed that we can't see.

The too-tight ghetto shorts gotta go though, even a cheap pair would be better.

He would be getting laid everyday but he only wants to go for the hottest girls he can find. Those are the girls who get the most attention, take the most game,and have the most competition from other dudes to get.

If she is really an 8+ then that is absolutely NOT enough, not even close, 8s dont want average filipino guys either, they get crazy amount of attention because there is not many of them in Manila. I don't see why an 8 would be with you tbh.

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

I assume it's the same in Phils, but everytime I get an 8+ in Thailand, she ends up with an okay looking 30 something yo dude who shower her with attention and expensive gifts.
Which is fine perfectly fine to me, as I am always happy to move to the next slut, but if you are looking for a relationship, well you have to stop being broke.

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

lol one girl in 2 months?

If a guy comes patts for the first time and only bangs one chick a day he is not banging anywhere near enough.

**** me i'm 40 and banged 3 chicks in 24hrs a while back.

Be fussy if you want but man you might need to check your testosterone or something.

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

After 15+ notes I've started to get comfortable handing out notes and stopped feeling ashamed doing it. Now I really hand out my number to any 7+ I see in any good or bad situation, yesterday while she was climbing inside a full jeepney, today while she was standing with a girlfriend talking to 2 male security guards. In awkward situations like that with strangers watching and hearing everything right in front of their eyes I just say "Hey, take this" instead of "I think you're cute blah blah" and quickly disappear to minimize embarrassment for both of us but it's obv still very embarrassing for her. The girl talking to guards still texted me though after 2 hours.

Keep in mind I'm using the same scale I used for the 8 example I used in post #471 so what's an 8 to me might not be to you. To me an 8 is obv very hot but not some top model that requires you to be a millionaire. I'm exaggerating, but I don't believe you need to spend a lot of money on filipina 8's by my scale if you can keep them happy without materialistic things. But we shall see!

No, sorry, if she can offer me so much that I would even LTR her obviously I wouldn't want to introduce her to a leather boots and fitting jeans wearing young white baller that used to be a (gay?) model and therefore is probably good-looking on top of all of that.

I'll pm you pics though so you can post ITT the score out of 10 you give her; maybe I'm biased.

I don't know because I never eat out except sometimes chopped fruits and sashimi from SM market. A pack of sashimi from SM market is 350 pesos / $7, I guess I could afford to have that with a gf twice a month.

Honestly I have no clue what I would do with a gf and how much I'd spend, my last LTR was at age 17 and lasted 2 weeks.

Today before she's even been here and without knowing what's gonna happen I've already spent 30% of my hypothetical monthly gf budget on a 2nd set of bedsheets after I haven't washed the 1st for 6 weeks. Is that very long? In EU I used to go for way longer when I wasn't expecting to get laid, at least 3 months without washing sheets.

Still on that LTR dream, I guess poker situation is still good? If not how you plan to get that extra income?

The extra $25 per month you mean?

I was only going into detail with hypothetical LTR because of the questions/posts I answered, I'm not necessarily focused on finding a LTR. I have zero interest in a relationship that will cost me $50 or more a month, half that would be better. I think it's possible, the rest of the thread thinks it's not, but one thing I know before I spend significant money on a gf I'm rather single.

Poker isn't going great, 40 hour breakeven stretch combined with not playing enough hours or tables to get in volume. I've been mostly working on coding that bet script I mentioned while 1 tabling, and it has some bugs which demotivated me a lot but I'm too stubborn to play without finishing the script. The goal with the script is to make playing 2 fast tables of 6max more comfortable and make playing 3 fast tables of 6max possible (fast tables = 6 seconds per action with no time bank).

The script is basically already working and is ****ing genius, it's completely image or pixel based and can scrape the pot size from the screen (disclaimer I'm not breaking any poker site ToS) but it has a 5% error quote where for some reason it sometimes min-bets instead of betting % of pot and I'm trying to fix that.

I don't wanna blame it on the script bugs though, it's laziness, I've barely played nor worked on the script at all in the past week, it could already be long finished if I worked more on it. It's just really demotivating to still have bugs after working on the script for 50-100 hours (I stopped counting) but I'm too stubborn / too convinced in the benefits of the script to play without.

Another big demotivation was when it became definitive on 20-April that I wasn't gonna reach the 180h goal which would have given me 80% of profit from the staking deal. This month I'm getting 70% as I didn't reach it.

Script finished or not, I need to get playing or I'll be broke soon. I want 200 hours of 2 tabling in May, no matter what.

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

Can you explain me what's the thing between German and spreadsheets? I play a game with ŕ German friends and he always come out with tons of spreadsheets of stats about the game. I know you just tracking your things here which is absolutely standard. But when I asked my German friend about it he just reply "don't worry about it bro, just German thing".

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

You're required to track your daily winnings in a spreadsheet for most staking deals.

I have never used spreadsheets voluntarly, I'm not that organized but I guess most Germans are very organized or accurate with their work or anything they do.

For washing sheets, if I'm not expecting to get laid I would often wait 3-4 months to wash them. Now that I have a couple regular **** buddies, it's about every week.

This one is a 7 imo, face looks a bit off, bit flat nosed, body proportions slightly too square/flat. Can't be an 8 compared to your other 8 who's way cuter. What happened to her?

The other 8 was a facebook I got from a Tinder bio and she never replied to me except like one msg so she clearly wasn't interested. The new one is from handing out notes.

Did she reply to you?
