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

Thailand would make more sense for you, asian looking chicks, super cheap accommodation and food, avoid the visa costs by just overstaying until you're bored and sure you won't return for 3-5 years. Because 1 year overstay is a 3 year ban, >3 years is a 5 year ban. You'd be able to live even cheaper than you do now, and prob bang more chicks

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.
It's good advice, but if you're responding to my 'sex with the ex' story from 5 March, I didn't want to see her again if she's not ok with me seeing other girls. Our final conversation before she stormed out went something like this:

She's sitting on my lap, I'm booking her an Uber on my phone, I tilt the screen away from her because I don't want her to see my Instagram

She: (jumps up) "What are you hiding?! Oh, you just got a text from another girl?! Go ahead, text her! I'll get my own Uber, no need!"
Me: "It wasn't a text from another girl that I was hidi..."
She: "JUST TELL ME!! Are you talking to other girls?"
Me: "Why would you care? We're not dati..."
She: "WHY WOULD I CARE?! Wow, woooow. I can't do this anymore. Have a good life!"
(slams door)

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

I'll be having my first ever livestream on Twitch this coming Friday 6 PM EST, that's Saturday 6 AM Philippines time, at https://www.twitch.tv/infoshove

My plans for that day's stream include video calling Pampanga girl, swiping on Tinder, spitting my infamously bad text game on Tinder and getting a hoe to come to my condo on stream.

What about youtube, people can give you donations with the 'superchat' function on a live stream

Twitch is a way better platform for live streaming. I've decided I'd rather start at zero followers on Twitch than with a 4k headstart on YouTube. I might end up renaming the YouTube channel to InfoShove and uploading stream highlights there, but do all my streaming on Twitch.

No better time than 6am to start the first livestream on Twitch hitting on ladyboys and crackheads to get viral. Smart move OP

In b4 filipinos get butthurt and get you deported, you get labeled a creepy sex tourist by SJWs who'll try to get you deported too etc.

It's just a ****storm waiting to happen if the wrong people find out about you on Twitch.

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

I have heard that all it takes to get someone deported or their passport marked is a complaint. No idea if that's accurate.

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

Interested in watching but 6AM local time seems like a weird choice. Doubt there will be anyone awake for real time Tinder chats or video calls.

I know I'm not going to 'get viral' with my first stream. I'm not going to get viral with my 20th stream either. It's going to be a consistent, daily grind to grow on Twitch over time. I'm planning to stream for 4 hours everyday if the initial stream is fun.

I expect most of my potential viewers to be NA timezone, followed by EU. The Asian market for English speaking content is nothing compared to NA.

Keeping that in mind, around midnight to noon EST seems like the nut low even though here in Asia (GMT+8) that timeframe includes the best hours for Tinder and hooking up.

I don't know... Basically I have to decide between way better content (streaming in the Asian afternoon/evening with lots of potential hookups) or way bigger potential audience (streaming at NA Twitch peak hours).

I believe it's certainly possible (just not optimal) to stream myself talking to some chicks on Tinder from 6 AM (many girls are active on Tinder on their way to school/work from my experience) and successfully meet an ugly chick 2 or 3 times a week around 10 AM, whether it's a weekend or her weekday off college or a crackhead. (last one is a joke)

What's the alternative? Trying to build a fanbase of Asians and expats in Asia to be able to stream in the evening PHT and have better content... Seems tempting but seems hard to get a lot of viewers that way.

I guess the latter option is more of a niche and the content would have to be really good.

I don't know yet, I'll think about it, maybe I'll update the stream time.

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

I have no idea how twitch works with getting viewers to new users but I'm guessing word of mouth is your biggest asset and most of the people interested are those already living in Asia.

So you're likely limiting the quality of your content and viewers who know you.

If twitch has a way of sending viewers your way during prime time then I'm probably way off.

Twitch makes it is very easy to be discovered by complete strangers without any word of mouth through categories so the NA/EU traffic peak hours are a big factor to consider.

Actually there are plenty of IRL streams in Japan, Taiwan and Korea that are primarily watched in Western countries. For example this American streamer called Cjayride has been streaming in Taiwan for the past 1+ year, but the majority of his viewers are from NA:



https://www.twitch.tv/cjayride

But yeah, I think you guys are right and especially if I plan to do this regularly there's no way it's sustainable to be on Tinder from 6 AM everyday without running out of girls to talk to or stuff to do. I'll set a regular schedule around Asian evenings instead.

You can run it from like 10AM-Noon local which is a good timeframe to catch west coast people in North America and a few east coasters staying up late.

I think something like that happened to Fanapathy due to his vengeful ex. Not sure if she had access to his passport info.

Just checked CJay's stream, it's fun yet awkward. That's the type of stuff you would want to do. Walking around slums getting mobbed by impoverished kids would quickly make you Twitch famous.

It's definitely not the right time to do very non PC stuff. People get banned from youtube and twitch all the time for that these days. Even famous guys like RooshV are looking for other sources of income right now as it's extremely hard to monetize content when you get banned left and right.

Updated to this Saturday 1 PM Philippine Time.

We'll see how it goes and if I want to keep that schedule for subsequent streams.

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

I have to postpone my first stream to next week due to technical difficulties. Friday March 30 it is.

I'm planning to stream 5 hours everyday thereafter so it should be well prepared before I start.

I have 4+ mbps upload speed which is enough for 1080p streaming so internet is not the problem. It's other technical difficulties and features I've been working on that you'll see on Friday the 30th.

I think it's gonna be fun for me and it shouldn't be hard to bring myself to stream 5 hours a day if I'm having fun. Unlike a Jollibee job, I'm not doing it for short term money but because I see great long term potential in my ideas which is a better motivation than a small amount of money per hour.

Those are bold statements to make before I've even started, but the stuff I've prepared so far looks very promising to me.
