I've had my share believe me and I don't plan on having any more. But I know what you mean and one cannot predict the future obviously. I was just pointing out that there is a difference between those who actively try to succeed here either in their game or in something else and those who quite literally do nothing and then just bit*h about how games suck, they're running bad or how they can't find a job. Maybe they shouldn't have waited for a worldwide pandemic to start looking. I know all too well from my own life and my father's that things in life can turn on a dime. But he'll pass from this life knowing he did everything he could to make sure that he and his own didn't starve or go broke. Hopefully I'll be able to say the same.

Absolving women from taking responsibility for their own economic well being and allowing them to live parasitic lives while playing blame games and using shaming language is the biggest mistake Asian men (and some older western guys) make.

Any bum can provide bed space and food for a kid and home school it and once you stop catering to women's hypergamous instincts and narcissism (my son / husband is better than yours and provides more for me) life suddenly becomes fairly easy.

I have to respectfully disagree with your statements as for one I think you are projecting western values onto Asian women. My wife is a simple girl from the farm and to place the burden on her for "correcting" the products of the concepts you speak of is rather impractical and quite frankly unfair. And I'm not quite sure what my ability to provide for my family has to do with hypergamy, although I'm sure you do have a train of thought there that could be explained with a more detailed post. Once again though, I respectfully disagree with your assertion that any "bum" can provide for their wife and family. I would have written it a bit differently and said any bum "should" provide. But living in Asia I'm sure you already know that many do not. I realize I may sound at times as if I do want some sort of credit, but I do not. It's one of those weird things where I could care less about getting credit for what I do, but do not want to be mischaracterized for what I am not.

Not talking about re-educating farm girls but overpriviledged city women that speak fluent English, parasite off mommy and daddy, do some easy job that exposes them to men from similar backgrounds and then come with grand demands and expectations while providing nothing in return.

Common in Bangkok, probably a thing in Phnom Penh as well now that so much money has flooded in.

I don't look down on people from simple backgrounds but to create a level mental playing field is tough even without language and cultural barriers.

PT: I was 100% joking with you.

ILive: There's plenty of regular women in the demographics you're stereotyping. If this problem is actually occurring at the rate you're suggesting, then the problem might be due to where you're looking.

you may notice a general theme to his posts among all the threads

i could be mistaken, but he also believes hookers are so uppity they won't accept clients unless they are ripped chads, but legit could be confusing him with another poster who believes that

Thanks BGP but it doesn't look to get better any time soon. I think the government needs to figure out that this is not the result of a recent outbreak but due to the fact that recent mass testing across the country that did not take place prior is picking up positive cases. I think once they realize that we will be fine as our numbers are still relatively low compared to other countries, especially ones neighboring us directly.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Looks like I was incorrect about things not getting better as the government announced last night that the lock down will end on the 5th and that the city will be back open on the 6th of May. There are a few caveats of course as they also said that "red" zones will remain restricted but it looks like other parts will be relatively open. It's still unclear as to whether or not there will still be a curfew from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM. My bet would be that the curfew would still apply and I don't think the bars will open back any time soon as they have already stated that restaurants will still only be delivery only. Still this is all good news and life should return to some sort of normalcy.

It's sad to hear that, but now it's such a frequent occurrence. Restrictions are imposed abruptly and indefinitely
