For a young girl to have a driver, you are now talking about only the rich strata, or like 170k households (less than 1% of the population). The number is likely even lower as many families that fall into this bracket won't spend that kind of money solely on their daughter's transportation.

And typical middle class Filipina girls that are looking for a long term relationship will want you to meet her friends and her family at some point, because they certainly will want to know who is dating/banging their daughter. If your experience is otherwise, either she isn't looking for a ltr that leads to marriage or anything serious, or she isn't really middle class or above.

I know people will disagree with that last statement, but sorry, she was just content with banging you for a couple of years and had nothing really serious in her mind about the two of you, which isn't such a bad outcome for you really.

OP, before you start thinking of a ltr, get your stuff together, get immigration legit and earn some money so you won't be begging on the streets. Obsessively talking about having a ltr when you are illegal and wondering if you can pay rent for the next year is silly.

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

Rescue team not needed guys, I successfully got my visa extended yesterday, I was just too tired from banging, cuddling or grinding poker with her on my lap. I'll update thread about visa situation and other stuff when I wake up.

She said she's going out to drink with her friends today and asked me to come with them but I declined cuz I don't drink. So she wants to see me tomorrow again.

If she isn't looking for LTR then I don't know how a girl looking for a LTR looks - She texts and wants to be with me all day, asks jealous questions like who I'm with multiple times a day and is leaving all kinds of stuff (necklace, hair clips, bracelet) in my place and mentioned bringing her clothes next time so she can go to work from here.

Anyway falling asleep

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

What are the chances OP ****ed up and told his 50+ roomies he's broke? He seems too honest to lie, but then again he just bought lavish office furniture, so it's probably saved his ass.

You're correct, you don't know how how a girl looking for ltr looks like.

After a few dates you're expecting that's what she wants, just because she is jealous, leaves crap in your place, and talks about bringing work clothes over when your date is mainly at your condo? If that were the case I guess I'm a total slut for having so many ltrs at once.

Not trying to rain on your parade, but dial it down a bit and you might find more luck here. You don't need to be so desperate, you're white in the Philippines, and that pretty much sums up getting laid or finding some random decent 8 to date.

You're a guy. You're going to get bored of her faster than she gets bored of you. Let nature take its course.

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

Way too much overthinking itt. You've known eachother for like a month, just enjoy your time with her & see where it goes, worry about making a living now and not about what happens a couple years down the line.

This. Let OP enjoy his time for f**** sake. Giving advice to OP is a good thing, but let him have fun and figure out things on his own. Most relationships don't last, but who starts thinking about that right away?

By the way OP, how much did you have to pay immigration? Did it go smoothly?

'I know better, you don't know, I've had a lot of girls, don't be desperate, this is how things are I can tell these things just from an internet post even though I haven't met her or you, you might end up begging on the streets, you're an illegal' lol Jesus Christ

When I meet people that post like this in real life they're usually on the autistic spectrum.

He has savings, his worries are just about meeting poker hour goals, and clearing overstay isn't an issue as long as you pay.

A lot of airlines let you cancel the ticket within 24 hours after purchase, and I guess maybe even 48 hours. This is what the website exploits and you don't get to rent a ticket, but they act like a travel agent who gets a refund from the airline.

BTW, you can just book on Expedia and they let you get a full refund within 24 hours after purchase (for most flights I believe). You can save $10 this way, but you will have to cancel the ticket yourself.

Also, this is not a full proof method for long flights. If your flight is delayed and you arrive after your ticket in cancelled (or you cancel it yourself during the trip), then you will not have a proof of onward travel. Unlikely to happen if one plans accordingly and this assumes that the immigration officer is going to check with the airline, but one outers do happen.

I haven't used the website, but yes it should work. Note that they make a booking for you and e-mail you the details of this booking. Then, they cancel the ticket for you.

Personally, I wouldn't pay $10 because I can do the booking and cancellation on my own, but it is not a bad idea for some people.

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

I've used flyonward and it worked fine when the **** at Detroit Metro was trying to check my outgoing ticket.

I'm guessing this threads coolness level has already peaked now that OP is wifed up. It was a decent run could of been better though. At least we got G2A up to degen stuff for entertainment.
