One more clueless kid moving to SEA

Hello people of Twoplustwo! So as you can read, Im gonna move to some place in south-east Asia! Havent really decided where yet, since I wanna do some travelling first and find a place where its cheap, girls love white man, not filled with bull****, able to play poker and yeah, thats it.

A little bit about me, Im a 25 year old guy from Northern Europe, been working a ****ty job the last few years and played some poker on the side. Been able to save up 27k usd and 2k as a bankroll in poker. When it comes to poker I play Omaha microstakes, havent made any good money from it, YET, so the plan is to work hard and be able to make a living from poker, my 25k will last a while, so I wont be in any kind of stress.

So yeah, gonna try to keep this thread filled with entertaining pics and experiences about my stay there and poker related stuff.

Leaving by the end of this month to Bangkok first, have something to take care of there, before I leave for Philippines most likely, and Vietnam later. First time in this part of the world.. Guess Im gonna start pipelining on Tinder soon

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

The key is to start streaming your interactions with girls on Twitch, start eating well and getting body fat % under 10, and set poker volume goals. Do that and you should be fine.

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

You'd be the first guy I ever met in SEA that suddenly started working hard there, but GL.
FYI Tinder isnt really that great in most of SEA, a lot of hookers and ladyboys, I heard its fine in Phils though

Sounds like a solid plan. Just film Tinder girls (with their permission of course) and get paid to ****.

I think the reason why people say they only match with hookers and ladyboys, is because they have bad profiles on Tinder, have you ever seen a girl swipe on Tinder? No wonder why they only match with ladyboys and hookers.. I doubt pretty asian girls will jump on any white man they see on Tinder.

No, but there are cam sites for porn, and you can put the highlights on PornHub to create more of a following.

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

How do you guys get through the language barrier if you're not staying in the country long enough to properly learn (<6 months)?

I had a situation where I had to depend on google translate on my phone and it just didn't seem to bridge the gap well enough--so much was lost in translation.

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

Bangkok is overpriced these days, overrun by foreign tourists and a lot of locals hate foreigners for one reason or another and want to sh*t on you to make themselves feel better. (bad experiences, cultural incompatibilities, jealous of you having more money, a bigger dick etc.)

I recommend skipping town and heading to Saigon instead or Pattaya if you want to bang hookers.

Thailand is the land of the scowls these days, totally different than 10 years ago.

If you still want to go make it a 1-2 week trip rather than a multi month thing.

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

Only reason why I go to Bkk is because I have something to take care of there first, not planning to stay there any longer than I have to, will probably only be a week or two. Hookers aint my thing, I say so now atleast, hehe.. But yeah, Saigon seems like a good place for girls, the Viet girls looks so much better than Thais and Pinays. More difficult to pull tho...

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

What do you guys tell the girls and other people you do in life? If you tell them that you stay longterm, they will definitly ask what you do for money, and I guess screaming out that you are a pokerplayer is not so clever.. Any suggestions? Living of savings? Bitcoin?

3rd world people are either simple minded peasants or predators (if they aren't on the bottom rung of society, usually it's the latter).

Conveying that you earn a ton of money, even if you do, is never a good idea.

English teacher, freelance writer or something that sounds like you're barely making ends meet is best, even if you should make more money than that.

If you tell a girl you're doing fancy stuff, you dress the part and live in a nice building they will all throw themselves at you.

Don't expect any genuine relationships with 3rd world women. They're all fairly goal oriented (getting a well earning guy to provide for them) and will have zero in common with you.

Just say ‘I work internet’, no one will be able to converse well enough, or care enough, to dig deeper.

That's the right approach these days imo. Top tier girls have so many guys throwing themselves at them, there is no way she'll stick around.

For me it's fairly rare that I connect with women because most have zero personality and nothing going on in their life but a superficial veneer, but once in a blue moon it happens.

With Asian girls it only tends to happen with those that have some mixed blood in their family (i.e. grandparents with Russian or Persian blood). These have been consistently the least gold digging as well.

Depends on your activities, if you do the more nerdy meetups like boardgames etc.

Re: One more clueless kid moving to SEA

saigon is not a single mans paradise. one of the last comments on nomadphils site about dating in vietnam was from 2ish years ago says how the saigonese girls are very '****y'. i coudlnt find a better way to describe dating life in saigon for foreigner.

in bkk i was to the point i needed a personal assistant to handle all the texts/dates. polar opposite saigon.

others may have different experience i focus almost entirely on uppity hot sluts 10 years younger then me and dont really bother with normies. i was desperate a few weeks ago and did go out with a normie and after 2 dates she became a lvl 25 clinger so had to break that off. if thats your thing there are plenty of those.

A lot are part Chinese and Chinese are mostly conservative people.

Communism and south east asian culture means everybody is always lingering, lurking, gossiping all up in other peoples business.

Your average local has very little privacy and needs to manage their reputation carefully, especially when it comes to dating western guys.

You have the same issues in Thailand with girls from "better" families that don't want to be shamed as a race traiting slut.

The developed world where a middle class still exists to a certain extend is much easier in that regard.
