But one dream coming true doesn't mean you give up on other lifelong dreams.
You're not dream-greedy to want, say, a cool career and a mate.
Further, the men in these accounts seem rather pathetic and easy targets for gold-diggers. However, I should mention that I am inspired by the dating success of guys on this forum. She could use some acting lessons, its like she's reading a cue card. The term courtship is far more accurate in many parts of the world. I think that's the final point people will take away from this.
Lack of wisdom always has a high price and there is no vaccine against stupidity. Dating western woman is definately not a confidence booster, and can lead to paranoia. My GF's parents live in what is likely the most dangerous part of the Philippines- in Sulu. But the majority of men who date overseas say it is far BETTER than in America. That it's better to be surrounded by potential good and bad choices with the freedom to figure out your own course than it is to be surrounded with practically no good choices at all. In China you can still find golddiggers and bitchy, nagging harridans that make a mans life hell.
Many men on there told me I was way too nice, real and good looking for the site .... I will never go on a free site again, i would rather spend thousands if I had to than waste the time involved with screening on POF.
Oh and BTW if the guy is half decent ...a 6-7 out of 10, he thinks he just needs to keep looking (like too many men he thinks there is a super model on POF that he just hasn't meet yet)... OMG, I could go on for days, telling horror stories from POF connection # 1 The married men # 2 The perverts and pigs only looking for sex, but say they are looking for long-term # 3 The physco that refused to stop calling my home, even when threaten with the police # 4 No doubt like the gaga video where they show POF being used in a prison, i would bet money inmates have full access.
Nate You gotta remember that the media thrives on bad news. I do keep a home in the Philippines, and I cannot recall a visitor ever thinking it could be confused for the 51st state.
I have spent quite a bit of time in Thailand and there are some decent Thai girl, but most Yanks will find Filipinas are a lot more compatible.
I have never felt like I was "dating" really..like "merging"..helping a really gorgeous girl out with her nympho problem (haha)... "It takes far less effort to find and move to the society that has what you want than it does to try to reconstruct an existing society to match your standards." - Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World You gotta remember that the media thrives on bad news. If one has a penchant for Asian girls, you would be much MUCH better off in Thailand. The PI is hyper-Westernized and the disease of feminism is spreading. Believe me, the Philippines is a hell of a long ways from anything like the 51st state...because it has some westernized trappings, some are fooled into a sense of complacency, but then the full blooded orient with a layer of Latino rears its head...Many men on there told me I was way too nice, real and good looking for the site .... The prophet tells us, "Your old will have visions; your young will dream dreams." Elderly women in a retirement community in Mill Valley protested the war in Iraq on a busy thoroughfare with placards every Friday for years.All "asians" may look and act the same in the eyes of some guy who was from the less cosmopolitan areas in the U. While chatting with asian women on the internet I remember several women warning me to be careful when seeking someone to date. ng_That is rather astounding that you would let other people's bad experiences control your life.My friends wife from Manila also warned me of the dangers of dating filipinas. For every tale like you point out here I could also provide many good accounts for happy marriages that have lasted years.I really do, insofar as that is possible in this vale of tears -- a cherished family, a grandchild, church, career, sobriety, two dogs, daily hikes, naps, perfect friends.But sometimes I am lonely for a partner, a soul mate, a husband. I rarely missed sex: I had tiny boundary issues in all those years of drinking, and by my early 20s I had used up my lifelong allotment. I do love what Wodehouse called the old oompus-boompus when it happens to be in progress, but wouldn't go out of my way.And having realized this one long-shot dream with my grown child gave me the confidence to try something even harder: to date.I recoil even from the word "date," let alone the concept of possibly beginning a romantic relationship. I have an almost perfect life, even though I've been single since my last long-term boyfriend and I broke up four years ago.Met at least 40 guys in person and only 1 was worth dating, dated him for 3 month then found out he was an illegal immigrant looking for marriage.I am a very attractive woman and most of the women there must be overweight and ugly, because most guys made me go on web cam before meeting as they did not believe I was real!!!
