Why you dont move in TW, cost of living about the same as PH

I gotta agree with DC based on my brief 3 month stint in Romania that the quality of girls (plus from talking to my romanian friends) over there is just insane. The highest value girl ive ever banged in terms of personality+looks was during that stay (i'm 26 and been in Asia the last 3 years and a half). Eastern euro girls have very different personalities to western girls and i'm sure some eastern euro guys can chime in here to confirm.

On the other hand, I absolutely love Bangkok and the chill laid back attitude of thai girls so have no plans to leave anytime soon fwiw.

Not all Pinays are "farm girls with no education/social grace/etc". Even though the average level of education is extremely bad in the Philippines, the top 2% are capable of meaningful conversation if you're into that.
What do you consider top 2% in PH and how many of these 2% have you dated? Can you name some traits that make a Filipino girl 2%?

I don't know how to break it to you, but top 2% Filipino women can get young, educated, decently wealthy Filipino guys with promising futures to date. It is possible that once in a blue moon one of them might hook up with a foreigner but if they are pursuing you and it's always so easy, you're not dating 2%. This should be obvious. It might be your 2%, but it's not anyone else's 2%.

Many foreign guys are dating into economic/future desperation because it's just so easy. And in cases where the girl had "options," the foreign guys had to put in a ton of time and effort, just like in the West if not more.

This is why I theorized earlier that it's not easy dates that drives young guys to pick Thailand/Philippines. A lot of it is a sense of adventure, exploration, lifestyle.

In my quote above I was talking about the top 2% WRT their capability to have a meaningful conversation, not top 2% of girls overall.

So 98% of Pinays are incapable of having a meaningful conversation, which admittedly is pretty sad, but contrary to your very wrong assumption that an average young white guy only has it easy with the bottom 5-10% of Pinays (which is the most ridiculous statement ever; average young white guys are like rockstars in PH), it's more like 90-95%, and there are a lot of relatively educated girls in that range.

dc_publius just likes to argue and make strong assertions. If he has ever been to SEA at all it probably wasn't beyond a one week holiday.

I live in Manila and if you are talking about top 2% girls looks wise, they will be with a guy with money/power/status, so you can see a bunch of 5/10 guys with 10/10 girls in top clubs in bgc. But a lot of the time those guys invest in their looks too so it doesnt look that out of balance.
As far as top 2% of girls money wise, this gets interesting, I have seen a number of couples where a rich fatty dates a 10/10 model farang (bunch of them there.)
Manila is probably the only place in SEA where foreigners have a decent chance of fully integrating in the society, a lot of their celebrity power couples are mixed.

Also on the theory that white guys have it easy with bottom 10%, id say we have it easy with the bottom 50% but the problem for me is that bottom 50% is trash, but im in the minority here and too picky

We need to define what "having it easy" means. To me it means you have a foreigner bonus and girls want to date you and go the relationship path, not neccessarily want to have sex with you before you're their boyfriend.

For that definition I stay at it, over 90% of Filipinas would want to be in a relationship with a normal young white guy.
04-11-2018 , 07:25 AM
but wouldnt 90% of them want to be in a relationship with a normal young filipino guy too?
Normal and young is already pretty good.

They might in individual cases if the chemistry is right or other factors, but I'm talking about the average outcome. Why would a normal young Filipino statistically get 9 out of 10 girls?

Why would they choose to have a serious relationship with a busto tourist that cant guarantee anything for her future over some local pinoy?

I don't know why they do it, ask them.

Probably a combination of Filipinas thinking the average white guy is more attractive than the average Pinoy, and even the most busto Westerners having more potential earning power than most Pinoys.

Obviously you can't be a 1-2 week tourist for them to think you're serious about relationship.

When the reality of it is this busto foreigner has proved he has significantly less potential earning power than Angelo the mango slanger from Tondo.

On Sundays below will take up 2-3 hours (I'm thinking of 100 two-tabled hands of HUNL per match, play money on Stars so anyone new to poker can join). Let me know what you think about it:
Why no opinions on this? Am I delusional to think it could be popular among recreational players on Twitch?

I shortened it to make it easier to read in the channel info on Twitch:

Twitch streamer is just a fancy title internet beggars give themselves
04-11-2018 , 11:46 PM
But it requires more work than begging

I mean some people are entertainers, some are beggars. Maybe start by actually streaming content before offering promo deal for future donations. Seems a bit backward to me...
04-12-2018 , 12:15 AM
It's not to get more donations, it's to have weekly poker content.

i dont wanna watch you play poker in any way shape or form. Why would you NEED to have poker content?
04-12-2018 , 06:53 AM
It would only be once a week and only take up 3 out of 35 hours a week, so over 90% of my content would still be IRL.

I don't need to, but it sounds like a good idea because:
  • it adds diversity to the content
  • giveaways are good in general
  • unlike regular grind poker streams (which are 99.9% boring), it's not as repetitive and is engaging with the viewerbase
  • it's personal given that I'm a poker player, my name is a poker term and I have roots here in a poker forum

On the other hand I might be wrong and it might do more bad than good because my channel theme is IRL, not poker. Most IRL viewers might be bored thinking 'wtf is this **** I didn't follow for poker' such as you. I'm not sure, it's hard to say.
04-12-2018 , 07:29 AM
Poker boom is definetely over. Chances are most of your viewers can't play poker and have no interest in learning how to be able to have a shot at HU.

Alternative ideas:

- Invite pretty girl, let her pick a viewer nick from the bowl of names on paper, if the viewer is present he gets the cash, if not maybe redo two times.

- Walk in mall, let random person tap on your phone and script will pick the winner. Same condition: viewer needs to be present.
04-12-2018 , 07:37 AM
If I give away something I want it to at least make for some good content, not just raffle off money.

But yeah you're right, most random people on Twitch aren't interested in playing or watching poker. I might just drop the idea and keep it 100% IRL.

I'm starting to think 98% was a bit generous and it's closer to 99.5%. 26 year old college graduate btw.
