I'm sure all of you (however many of you there are) know this already, but it's an interesting contrast perspective I think is worth sharing. For me personally, it's finding a good place to visit in the near future.
Craigslist. Good for finding a place to live, buying and selling things; bad for . . . everything else. I remember a mate of mine placing an ad last year. He got one bot that tried its damned hardest to be human (on some Her shit), a 28 year old "stay at home mother" with three kids who wished she could sit on her ass all day, a 30-something single mother with 2 kids, and some married ho from Texas whose husband allows her to "have fun". I was right there reading these ads. Now, he was looking for sex, so it's whatever. The Texan was staying at a friend's that was within walking distance of mine. Long story short, it was games galore. Games, games everywhere.
Contrast to 2014 when I placed a Manilla, PI ad. I plan on visiting someday, so I was like, "lemme test the waters with a post; see what it has to offer". A lot of hype about women being easy to meet exists. I thought it was bullshit until I tried it out.
Well, in my ad I put some criteria in. Nothing outrageous; I'm not THAT much of an asshole. But a little something-something to let them know I'm grown and know what I like/want. Not only am I getting real replies, they're young, and respectful. One called me "Sir", with a capital 'S'.
The only thing that makes me a bit ??? is that they speak English rather well. I mean better than some native speakers I know.
Anyway, I wonder why it is that I get so many serious replies, even when I didn't post a photo or description of myself (only that I'm foreign to their land). They sent photos without being asked. It's like, you know? I wonder if this is how western women feel when they get plugged to death with messages on Plenty of Fish.
Oh, that's why I'm here. To talk to people who are bettering themselves. Activity on my forums is lessening because the feminists and such as coming over. What began as a forum for problem solving and solutions is now a battleground for some kind of eternal contest between men and women. It's pure madness.
So yes, I am going there as soon as possible. I'm getting a better job soon with driving while I'll be going to school. My mindset is young professional right now. I'll worry about my forum later. But like I said, it's a work in progress, which is why I'm here. To network with individuals who are like-minded and brainstorm. Have you been to the Philippines?
There are a lot of members there that know a lot about the Philippines. I have traveled a lot but never made it there.
What are your forums?
I am definitely into problem solving, but different people focus on different problems depending on their situation. I am married with kids which means my main concern is culture. What is your main concern?
Would you know Will N Dowd by any chance? He's one of the few good members of my forums that did solve problems, and one of the few men who are overall that I've met. It is my understanding that he is banned from there? I'd like for you or someone else to maybe get his email, as he was scared away from my site when an anti-male feminist shamed him for going to the Philippines. I'd really enjoy conversing with him again, and because I'm serious about going to the Philippines, he could point me in the right direction.
That makes sense. Not certain if the e-stalker followed him there. I guess you can go ahead and PM me or have the head administrator contact me as I don't want to make an account in case this stalker is there.
