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.
Overall I like the idea and depending on your screen presence I'd try to watch. No way I'm watching 5hrs of anybody but I'm sure that's not your goal. Would definitely be worth a sweat at the end if you can get a girl to come over to your place.

Good luck!

I assume you're going to archive the stream on twitch for later viewing?

Of course, but on a first stream a lot can go wrong that might force me to delete the archived stream (VOD). If you don't wanna miss it I suggest you tune in live, can't guarantee it'll be archived.

Friday 1pm PHT.

Instead of making grand plans just go with the flow, put in long hours and see if you can gain some traction.

People like cjay stream pretty much every day and are just themselves really, albeit in an interesting city. If you'd walk around in Manila live streaming people would just think wth is this **** if you aren't in Greenbelt or to a limited extend Fort Bonifacio.

Sorry, too busy to have the first livestream this weekend. Next week Friday it is (and everyday thereafter). This is the final date change or I shall be struck by lightning.

If you're grinding you can stream that with a delay btw.

Not sure if poker streaming is your thing or if you're paranoid about someone disseminating your strat but you can get up to 200 viewers with that.

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

I will never stream my grind on the 'secret site'. I want to focus on real life streaming (Tinder, having girls over, handing out numbers at the mall...)

there's no chance you stream every day, especially if you wanna be doing 5+ hour streams

Please don't film the handing out numbers thing.

I mean this whole tangent you are on right now is kind of like "why" but the numbers thing is sorta sacred bro...

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

There's nothing sacred about handing out numbers, it's k2d's note that is sacred and that I won't show on camera as per his request. (though that was half year ago; not sure if he still cares about that note / is still in Asia / alive?)

I got fooled on April Fools:



That girl is hilarious, same girl as in this conversation when I handed her my number: https://www.instagram.com/p/BdvPwzvDYOi/ Very smart for a Pinay. We had dinner once but nothing more came out of it.

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

I was playing with the same thought today, she's not just hot but actually funny and entertaining.

But we haven't met in over a month so it's unlikely I can pull it off in the next 5 days. But I'll definitely try.

Nah, I'm just saying she's an interesting personality that could add entertainment value to the stream.

Unfortunately the odds are stacked against me. How do you get a girl you barely know to come to your room (where she has never been before) as a featured guest for your 15 follower Twitch channel? That sounds sketchy af.

Maybe I should show her this thread? Please go ahead and post how I'm not creepy at all, treat women respectfully and am purely professional working with them and it's not dangerous to come to my condo

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

Well, there are now bikini pics of hers ITT, various sex stories, and at some point I was called a harasser that should get deported. I probably shouldn't show her this thread.

She might very well find it on her own though if I give her my Twitch name (InfoShove) and she googles it.

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

How to seal the deal with April Fools girl? We've already had dinner once and I don't wanna go out on a 2nd date before she comes to my place.

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

Just a heads up that I won't be streaming this week either. I need to focus on some other things before I can stream everyday (and I don't want to have my first stream before I'm able to stream everyday for strategic reasons).

I'll just stop promising a certain day and time until I know for sure it's gonna be that day and time, like a 24 hour notice (I see no reason why it shouldn't be next week). Sorry for the past 2 postponements.

This is a good description of most Asian countries. Since many white guys have such abnormal standards of beauty, they find heaven because any petite thin Asian girl is most of the way to 'hot' in their eyes. The locals are wondering why a foreigner with money would go out with some poor and uneducated "ugly" girl, but it's all in the eyes of the beholder, isn't it?

The real answer is to move to a country where that 5-10% of girls is what the OP finds irresistably attractive and forget about what everyone else thinks.

As much as people tend to rag on retirees moving to Asian countries and dating local women, I think they're the ones that are actually making the smartest move. Most normal young white guys can do better in US/EU - including with Asian girls if they move to a metro area that has lots of Asian girls.

I propose the idea that most of the young guys who say they're in Asia in part because they like Asian women are actually in Asia largely because they like a little bit of adventure, uncertainty, travel, escapism.
