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

Would it not be better to just change the subject of the channel, make a video of where you’ll be going forward from here, yea some people might not like it and unsub, but you’ll be in the same position as if you start a new channel, except you’ll have ~4K subs

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

You can copy Hour Phillippines: https://www.youtube.com/user/lordancheta/about

He mainly makes mall walking and restaurant review vids.

No idea if his 16 million views made him more than pocket change. He mainly seems to use it as a street cred tool for his marketing agency.

https://www.youtube.com/user/serpentza/videos and https://www.youtube.com/user/laowhy86/ are popular China youtubers that make a living from their channels and their angle works well, however there is a ton more interest in China than in the Phils which is largely considered an irrelevant dumpy 3rd world slum by average Joe in the west and not really on anyone's radar.

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

Travel videos aren't fun to me. Even worse, restaurant reviews .

I'm not desperately looking for a way to become a professional YouTuber at any cost. The content would have to be something I enjoy doing. The theme of my current channel is something I enjoy but doesn't seem to work out as a career for me.

I'm not sure how much he makes, but for me it's $0.50 per 1k views. For his 16 million views that would be only $8k in 6 years. I'm sure he makes most of his money from other sources like the marketing agency you mentioned. Still it's not easy to make it on YouTube, you need to love doing what you're doing and work for almost nothing for a long time before you can start making good money.

My earnings of my 3 most viewed videos that were monetized:

Youtube has a minimum requirement to get paid at all right?

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

The threshhold to get paid out is $100 in your Adsense account IIRC.

But this month they've added another requirement:

Starting today we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers.

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

I don't stream on Twitch (yet?) and my YouTube is just old, embarrassing videos.

If I do above mentioned announcement video I'll link it ITT. I guess my smartest move would be posting that video moments before I start my first stream in an attempt to direct part of those 4,300 subs to the stream.

But idk when I have time for that. Maybe some day in March. If I do it then my first stream will be a Tinder stream.

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

On saturday night my ex invited herself to my place, stayed for 20 hours in which we banged 4 times, then on Sunday ended up furiously storming out of my condo as usual after the topic of other girls came up

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

I haven't messaged pampanga crush in over a month and of course she hasn't messaged me in that time either

How can one filipina be that attractive?

You, sir, are insane. Or I'm biased because I've seen the hotness of her face in person. She could be a model.

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

Brush up on your Spanish and move to Mexico City. You could go out with 2 girls like that a week. There's practically an endless supply of hot latinas on Tinder b/c the city's so huge and they're crazy about any halfway decent looking gringo. City's hella cheap (except for rents if you want a super upscale area) and is way safer than what I'd always been led to believe.

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

Lurker, gimmicked, obv.

Here's a tip I wish I would have gotten when I was, more or less, you in a past life. Don't ever talk to girls you are dating about other girls if you want to see them again. Lie. Find a way to alter/hide/mute your communication devices when you are with them. Do not ever admit to seeing other girls. Just say things like, "I've been really busy, not seeing anybody these days, not really even thinking about that kind of stuff right now. I'm glad to be with you tonight." Be vague. Deflect.

If you get "caught" just make up a lie. You're smart enough to do that. Denial isn't just a river in Africa. You're not serious with these women and, almost always, they're not that serious with you. They aren't princesses to be protected; you're no future politician that requires worldwide integrity.

People lie. In SE Asia (and the rest of the world for that matter) people lie to save face (self and others') all the time. It's a part of the culture. It doesn't make them any better or worse than you, that's just the way they live life. Learn to lie about other women. It'll save you pain in the long run.

Mexico is 5.94 inch average, that's not big, I'd be disappointed with that. Quite a few EU countries rank above it.

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

Mostly it's height that is a big advantage. I've had more than a few who said clear eyes and being tall were their main criteria. I'm only 5'11", but I'm considered really "tall" here b/c the average Mexican guy is only about 5'6".

It also depends where you are in Mexico. All foreigners pretty much only go to Cancún or other beach cities, so there are hardly any actual Mexican girls there and there are far too many gringos. In those cities, Tinder has been mostly worthless for me. However, in cities like Mexico City where there are (proportionally) very few gringos, a lot of girls will be crazy about them as a result.

I'm a slightly above average looking guy, and in France/USA/Canada I never had girls commenting on my looks in the first few messages on Tinder. In Mexico, a few girls will tell me stuff like "your smile looks great", "your first pic is amazing", and that's basically code that they'll be dtf within an hour or 2 of meeting them.

My type is basically the same as Info's, skinny girls, and it's possible to set up as many dates as you can handle with that type of girl. I checked out the city for a month, just to see what dating would be like, cost of living, safety (b/c I heard all the BS stories in American media), and fell in love with the city and would make a permanent move in May.

Info's mentioned not wanting to shell out much money for dates and such and I'm not sure about prices and such, but here it can be cheap as **** if you want. A lot of the time I'll just do a quick coffee date (coffee is about $1.50 each for a huge coffee), then bounce the date to a park or something if it's going well (there are tons and the city is super walkable). If you want to grab cheap street food, you can get some of the most delicious tacos ever for .60 each. 1 metro ticket in Europe costs the same as 10 here. Rents can be a little high if you want to live in a super upscale area (but still not USA/Europe levels), or you can live in a more middle-class, but safe neighborhood for less.

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

I have yellow fever, I'm not going anywhere to South America or whatever.

Even though I complain about SEA girls' looks ITT, I still find the hottest 1% of SEA girls are hotter than the hottest 1% of any other race.

The only places I have on my radar are Northeast Asia for the future when I can afford it and SEA until then.
