OK, than that's not truly an LTR in that case something nearer a fling or a fwb. Whatever, I suppose these are all just terms really. Really what he should be doing is not thinking about girls at all past getting laid, and instead focus more on things like how he is going to make money and continuing to stay in the country legally.

If he really wants to make it ltr he could just stop pulling out.

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

Doesn't living in a 13k place and being a foreigner make me look like I have a lot of money by default to a Filipino family?

I feel like even if I play poker full time which is the most questionable job to a girl's parents, being a foreigner makes it a lot more credible cuz a lot of expats have online jobs that aren't usual to them but they all have money

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

In my experience (few LTRs) they don't ever introduce BFs their parents, and all of them told me that's pretty standard for other girls. They keep it quiet until if / when you marry.

And yes simply by having your own place, and apparently enough money to at least survive without asking for her money, makes it easy to have a LTR.

ITT66 is thinking of East Asian parents, e.g. Chinese families asking if the BF has a car / house / career, in SE Asia they'll be happy for her to marry a foreigner especially after a LTR for years.

Even if they somehow knew his rent and bills are 50% of his budget they'll assume his potential future earnings are high, plus money from his foreign family.

Rare exceptions like her being a 10 not an 8 and from an elite family but obv he wouldn't have creampie'd that kinda chick on the first date.

Given he creampies 100% it's safer for him to wife up and LTR this girl, get her on the pill and focus on grinding. Although the thread would get less interesting.

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

But he said her family does have money, more than the average Filipino family, perhaps a good bit more. I don't think they'll be happy for her to marry just any foriegner.

He's not likely to be with her for the long long term anyway, so it's probably not going to get to the point where her parents opinion of him comes seriously into play anyway.

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

more than the average filipino family doesnt say anything, it can mean that she has a refrigerator at home. Does she have a private driver at least? then we can talk about middle class

From the way he previously described her family I'd say middle class is probably about right...If his read of the situation was correct.

I'm going to guess they have more money than OP does for sure though.

If they own a refrigerator and a motorbike, that's already more than OP

Facts:
- AC at home
- pays Ubers/cabs by herself
- sent me pictures of the villa they booked for their holiday in Batangas and although it didn't show the interior I was surprised by how expensive it looked

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

No, it's just the fact that the average salary here is very low, what type of holiday do you expect from that

Listed rates for that place are 5 - 8k per night. Not unreasonable for room that can sleep entire family but would agree suggests they make more than typical call center salary.

Still got no visa... it's so hard to get up before noon. Maybe tomorrow.

  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.
I just noticed I failed all my 4 goals from two weeks ago, although 4th wasn't really failed but I just lost interest and never contacted "crush" again. At least girl-wise I'm glad the way things have turned out recently.



Today I was feeling lavish and bought some nice office stuff to motivate me to grind more and make my place look better. I went right from an unreasonably nitty setup to unreasonably expensive for my budget. For the past 1.5 months I had worked on my laptop in my bed using the small AC as a fan. No wonder I had a hard time motivating myself to grind much.

On my way back I had a funny old cab driver that got stopped by police for driving on the wrong side of the road but avoided getting a ticket because he turned out to be police himself that works in jail / detention center (seemed legit because police didn't give him a ticket for driving on the ****ing wrong side and he had keys for handcuffs on his key ring). I guess he has 2 jobs or something . He told me about jail in Philippines and I obviously didn't tell him about my visa overstay but I asked a lot of questions what it would be like for me as a foreigner to go to jail and probably made him wonder wtf type of criminal things I do to ask those questions. I was worried as the only foreigner in jail you could be a target for violence but he said the inmates would treat you like a boss and would want to be your bodyguards because they think you have money. He also said jail is super congested, 50 inmates in one room although I didn't hear how big the room is but he said you can't sleep because there's people everywhere.

After taking the pic I noticed my girl's necklace is also in the pic, in the bottom right.

I'm sure whoever rents your apartment after you get deported will really appreciate that. Get to the immigration office!

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

Getting with rich girls in Asia is the nut low bro.

They live large on daddys dime and expect you to take over if you pursue an LTR.

Unlike poor girls that might encourage you during hard times while hoping that you get back to a good income, rich girls have zero empathy for losses of income or concept of the lack of abundance of money. There must be something wrong with you if cash doesn't fall from the sky. They also don't tend to work at all or at best do some cushy mid status job that daddy arranged to save face.

If you want to pursue LTRs at all go for poor girls that know the harsh realities of life.

Given your unstable situation it's best just to **** and forget though. Chances are you'll have to go back rather sooner than later, given your lack of motivation to do anything.

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

I'm finally happy with rich girl (that's a good nickname for the thread after stoner girl and virgin girl), ending up broke or getting deported would be the sickest beat ever, I'm not gonna let that happen, I'll get my motivation issues together. I'll grind 200 hours by the end of May and go to immigration today.

you could probably make even more money if you booked action on this, cuz I don't think anyone believes it hahaha (not from me, unless someone has wechat paying up internationally is just annoying).
