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

Was in Manila over the weekend... agree with previous sentiments about the girls being on the chubby side. At least 7/10 of the girls I saw on Tinder were porkers. Went to an agogo bar and girls were replete with Jollibellies.

Did see a couple of tall model-like chicks at the casino though. Some of the Chinese female tourists were pretty delicious as well.

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

Any news from OP? What happened to the daily stream? I watched a little bit the last one (replay), it was a cringe fest lol, sitting there, not drinking, not talking to anyone, fuark man, I really felt bad for the girl who was with you. You should stick with daily streaming picking up girls while walking in malls / markets and bargaining like a boss (or not) in markets, street food review as well. Honestly (no offense) right now you are like a whale playing small stakes hoping to crush soon high stakes. You need to step up your game, and not a little bit. I am rooting for you brah, hoping to see you going from cringe master to filipinas slayer. Study the game, work hard, exploit population tendencies and das it alles

Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

All of it was super cringe.

Guy isn’t playing small stakes, basically play money with the girl he thought was his crush (poker analogy’s suck)

Meeting the family is halfway to marriage / beta bux.



Hard to be alpha tho in a country where you have no connections / social circle / social status whatsoever and you're just a random foreigner that presumably outearns most locals aka beta bux.

It's Info, I'm surprised we even got 3 streams. It took him like a week to splice together the "highlight" video on YouTube, then he couldn't even be arsed to go out streaming to capitalize on any people that might have been intrigued by the YT video and wanting to check out a livestream the next day.

I think he thought the stream would blow up pretty quickly and have a few hundred viewers after a couple streams, but when he realized he'd have to put in a bit of time and effort he just said **** it.

Too lazy to read through the entire thread, did the kid go broke and go back home with a story of picking up hookers and bad beats?

You can watch the replay on his channel on twitch. Last streaming was about the birthday of a random girl, probably girl friend of the girl with who he was. Cliffs: do nothing, act weird the whole time, don't talk to anyone, say to the girl "I am streaming right now, I have xxxx numbers of people watching right now" (lol, so wrong. Hookers or sluts could maybe give a **** but non working girls? lol, just LOL).

If so he's ****ing delusional. As I said before he started to stream, it was a fail before his stream started, Info has a ton of leaks in his social game, not hard to feel it by reading his blog. He should take it as an opportunity to step up his game, ask advices itt how to approach girls / how to make small talk like a boss. Ev+ for his life guarantee, then after that maybe start to make some money while streaming.

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

I think the criticism here is warranted but a bit harsh. Being a good streamer as a random dude in the PH requires significant social skills, the willingness to put yourself out there and possibly look stupid, and an interesting personality for the viewers to interact with. Info falls short on all of these unfortunately and I don't think those hurdles can be overcome in the long run. I would absolutely be giving up any hope of a steady income through streaming / uploading and just focusing on poker if I were him.

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

its impossible to be entertaining as an approach at the mall guy after you have already seen it 2-3 times, there are no variables there its all boring. The kit kat date was the actual good stuff but he really ****ed it up by cutting off the stream.

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

I think it is pretty sad with how fast InfoShoves gives up as soon as there are issues/no immediate gratification. Like genuinely many of us have been rooting for him. But as it is in life sucess for most of us requires hard work except for the few naturally gifted ones.
Pretty curious what he plans to do now. But oh well see fewer and fewer options for happy ending in this story.

I mean, what’s the meaning of life anyways? We’re just standing in Death waiting room. In the end it doesn’t matters.

Stream had some quality content, he should keep trying.

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

Yah, as someone who's never been to SEA, I found it pretty fascinating. I think there's something there, just needed to work out the kinks with lag, too much dead-time on public transport, and promising certain content and not delivering.

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

How about Info takes a job at Jollibee to slang some chicken and he can film that. That way he actually has a chance of getting paid and doesn't end up sleeping outside a bus station in Tondo.

I was horny and really wanted to get laid so I decided to do something I don't usually do: spend money. I paid her Grab to get here and Grab back and ordered us pizza. In total I spent 800 pesos or $15 that night. Still not bad for the best sex of my life.

I got myself into some drama on two fronts. First I invited my ex for the pizza and then stood her up for the other girl, now my ex never wants to talk to me again. It doesn't really bother me.



Then the other girl was here and we had a great time but 3 hours into the date after banging she starts talking about some 28 year old American she's been talking to over the internet for the past 9 months that's coming to the Philippines FOR HER in 2 days. She kept quietly stammering things like 'I don't know if I want to meet him' and 'Do you want me to meet him?'. I would've liked to say 'No' but I acted like I don't care because we've only known each other for 3 hours and I was overwhelmed she would ask me for permission. 'Are you asking me? It's up to you' I said without letting it shine through that I'm actually thinking of dating her (Best sex of my life, everyday? Count me in!) and don't like the thought of her banging that guy.

She was going to come again today but flaked (because she's "tired") and when I asked about the guy she said she decided to meet him after they had a 3 hour conversation. I also learned this ****ing genius (not) is visiting this girl he has never met for a whole month, wants to meet her parents and even wants to marry her in the future. Wtf?



Reflecting last night and putting together the puzzle pieces, I'm starting to realize what's going on: They seem to be in some type of long distance relationship (though she didn't call it that), he probably isn't the greatest catch and she likes me more, and last night by asking if I'm ok with her meeting him she was trying to test what my intentions are, if I want do date her long tern or if this is an ONS to me, to help her decide if she wants to fall in love with that guy. And by acting like I don't care I stupidly opened the doors for her to now meet that moron.

I'm currently thinking of the right words to call her before they meet tomorrow to talk her out of banging him. He probably wasted thousands of $ on the trip but that's his problem.

I guess I won't be able to reveal the outcome of this ITT due to self ban but I'll talk about it on my first stream lol.
Glad to see you finally lost your virginity last night, so your first time was the best time in your life.

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

I noticed my account got unbanned. It's only been 26 days but who cares, I doubt anyone here wants me to stop posting for another 5 days.

Tagaytay & Sofhia

I just posted the stream highlights of the Tagaytay birthday stream to YouTube:



The girl and I will have our second date this Sunday and I'll be streaming it. 1pm PHT as usual except this time I won't be late.

It's funny she thinks I'm rich and I had to promise her I'm not taking her out for fancy dinner. She has no idea I would never do that.



The streaming experience

Overall I think my first 4 streams over an 8 day period have been an OK start, I just failed my goal to stream everyday. The content was nothing special but seemed alright for starting out and it has taught me a lot about streaming - getting used to talk to girls while holding a camera in my face (which is surprisingly hard), learning what types of content to stream, technical aspects, etc.

The reason I haven't streamed since the Tagaytay stream was that after streaming a nice trip I didn't want to go back to streaming at the mall. I wanted to raise the bar and stream stuff like going to nightclubs or going on dates with girls, but then I got flaked on and instead of having an alternative stream at the mall decided not to stream at all until I have something special to stream. I've realized that approach is not viable though and if I want to stream regularly there will have to be some classic mall streams as it's impossible to do something special everyday.

I've decided I'll make myself less pressure on having to do something special every stream and more pressure on actually streaming everyday no matter what. The result would be a more unfiltered insight into my life.

So yeah, from Sunday will be my second attempt at streaming daily.

The cringe

Rewatching my streams, I think my biggest problem talking to girls that makes it "cringy" or "weird" is my nervous body language* and not talking confidently (stammering or lots of Uhm's). In my 1 year in the Phils before streaming I've asked 3 girls for their number and other than that only handed out notes so I don't have much practice at small talk. Holding a camera in my face while trying to focus on talking to the girl makes it even harder. Still that's nothing practice can't fix. Watching almost any streamer's or YouTuber's old first videos, they're all awkward then gradually improved with practice.

*Someone pointed out my eye movement and it's true, I never noticed that but saw it on stream. When I'm nervous I can't seem to sustain eye contact and blink like a mother****er. Other than that I noticed I'm not sitting upright or with crossed arms like in this pic with the half Japanese girl (thanks LB btw):

I banged 4 girls last month, 3 of them thanks to investing in a pizza each. I learned "I'm ordering pizza for dinner, wanna come too?" is like 10x more successful than trying to freeroll with a movie.

Maria, the girl from 4 weeks ago that's now with her American long distance bf:

I met the "9" again last week, 13 months after giving her my number. I noticed a very hot girl, but she was sitting in a group of girls and guys so I didn't approach her. As I passed by she called something in Tagalog and "your number!" so I turned around and talked to her and her friends for a couple minutes. She still has the 13 month old, crumbled up note she kept in her drawer as a memory. I didn't ask why she didn't text me and took her fb.

She's definitely no 9 though, either my standards were different or her looks detoriated over the past 13 months. Probably both.
