“Despite all the flak you get you are certainly an interesting character and probably the most famous (or infamous) self-made asian on the internet” – Rob, USA
"Most Asians don't think for themselves. They simply follow the pack. You are one of the exceptions."
– Jean, Colorado
"You're probably the most atypical Asian male I've ever met."
– Peter, an old Scottish traveler I met in Estonia who's been to nearly 100 countries
“Winston, you are a White man trapped in an Asian man's body. All the characteristics I associate with Asian men seem to be the opposite of you. You do not do what society tells you to do. You do not work hard just for the sake of working hard. You find White women attractive.” – Jean, Colorado
“As far as you being a banana – a white man trapped in an Asian body – I would like to qualify that you are not an American white man inside an Asian body but a
European Existentialist – a Frenchman, Italian or Spaniard trapped in an Asian body. You are certainly not a modern Anglo-Saxon trapped in it.” – Ladislav, my Expat Advisor
“I would say that yes, I have not seen even one Asian person like yourself. There are rebellious types and these are women often, and they rebel by joining the American mainstream. Same with Asian guys who start acting “American”. But for an Asian to rebel not only against Asia but against America because it is TOO repressed for your taste, that is really taking the cake. To most Asians America is synonymous with a loud free place where you can shed your inhibitions.” – Ladislav, my Expat Advisor
“Winston you are now an Asian American Moses, and you are leading your people out of the “captivity” of boredom, loneliness, lovelessness and datelessness to the various promised lands of milk and honey, many honeys that is and milk is to come later. Lol.” – Ladislav, my Expat Advisor
“What I also love about this book is Winston's philosophical view of the world. I have never in my life seen an Asian guy with such a brilliant, philosphical mind. There have been times when I thought I was crazy thinking the way I was thinking, especially as it pertains to America and its awful, non-inclusive culture. However, after reading Winston's words, I totally feel relieved and vindicated, knowing full and well it's society that is crazy, not me!” – Steve Hoca, Amazon Review of Happier Abroad
“Hey Winston...I see you’re famous. Maybe not quite receiving the positive feedback that you might have been hoping for but nevertheless, you can see how much your stories of your adventures and thoughts have affected others. As I always say, the show must go on.”
“Your tenacity is astounding. All the stuff you went through. Most people would have given up.”
“Winston, even though i don’t agree with all you are doing there, I do support your adventures and would to commend you for doing what many guys are far too chickens*** and cowardly to do ..so my hat is off to you and I would like to hear more about your times abroad.”
"I love rebels and free spirits, I really do. And that's why I like Wu so much. There are so many people who turn into depressed potatoes in the USA. They just sit there and get more and more depressed. And if you don't fit in, they just label you a "loser". Wu didn't just sit down and take that. Wu rebelled against that."
“To be honest with you Winston, I think almost all of the girls you hit on (and many of them you scored) are all very hot. This makes me wonder how you did it, especially the fact that you're an oriental. I know some guys who have a lot more than you, but they can't do anywhere near what you did (in terms of girls of course).”
“Winston, I am amazed at your ability to attract women that are much more attractive than yourself. I wish I had more of your magic. I consider myself much more attractive than you, but you seem to do better with the ladies. What is your secret?”
“I dont know how you do it, but whatever it might be (wit, charm, outgoing personality, etc.), i think you've got game (by that i mean confidence). Frankly, I think you just have an uncanny outgoing personality.”
“You are a monster asset for meeting women.”
– Peter, expat living in Philippines and Central America
“Photos prove everything they backup the talk. You walk the talk so to speak and very few of these other men on these Blogging sites can ever claim this not even the agency owners whom many are scamming many men.”
“Wu-man, I got to give it to you. You have surrounded yourself by everymans passion. Hundreds of beautiful women. All thru history men have surrounded themselves and fought over the presence of women. Could there be any better reason to fight over. For whatever reason you have accomplished that feat. You have surrounded yourself by beautiful women… P.S. I believe that you can prove your point anytime.” – Fan Mail
“After reading all your ebooks and following your advice to visit Lithuania I did and met the love of my life. I really give you credit because you are 100% right. I'm never dating or going with a shallow, superficial American woman ever again. I would also like to let you know that I am getting married in MAY 2008. Keep up the good work Winston you do inspire people.“ – Fan Mail
“Just thought I’d say hi and tell you how much your writing inspired me... I think people “need” to read what you’ve written” – Joan, USA
“I enjoy your writing and you are one of the most inspiring dudes around. Main thing is you don't give a shit what other people (especially white) say about you - highly unusual, unfortunately, for any race of people, Chinese especially. So your stuff is absolutely awesome.” – John, USA
“No B.S., you're a big, big inspiration and i'm glad to hear you're doing good in Angeles City. Sounds like heaven to me.” – Ernie, USA
“The stuff you recommend, winston, has always managed to utterly CHANGE MY LIFE. Thank you for being an inspiration. You will never know how much it means to me!!!”
"I visited your website, happierabroad.com, and I agree with everything you write. You are my hero! You have spoken truths that many men do not understand. You have broken ground that many men have not... You are an inspiration!" – Mark, Washington DC
“You are a hero for the underdog, proving that with balls and determination you can find fun, sex, love, and happiness...”
“Winston the reason you are successful is that you admitted there was a problem and went outside the box to get what you want. Most people settle for what life puts right in front of them.”
"Winston you're one of the few people who will tell it like it is, even if it makes yourself look bad. I give you that. Most guys brag and BS and deny their faults. Like Dwight (our mutual friend) if you say something happened, it happened. And like him, you don’t just talk about it, you DO IT."
– Jeff, Atlanta
“I'm currently 17 years old and like you I am a Chinese American. I love the ebooks you have online and I really enjoy hearing about your success with white women abroad. I have a research paper on "my hero" and I choose to do my report on you and your success.” – Joseph, USA
“Winston, YOU ARE MY HERO. Nobody can understand you and your noble quest unless they have lived in Russia. What drove you will drive any real man who goes there, but you had the courage and balls to stick out horrible shit that comes along with the beautiful women.”
“YOU ARE MY HERO TOO. Here I am with clinical depression feeling like I'm wasting my year after college and its honestly giving me hope browsing your photo collages and seeing that happiness is definitely possible, no matter who you are.”
“You are a champ. Most of us, even if we did find the holy grail would either be too selfish or more likely shy and embarrassed to ever come out publicly the way you have. Your generosity of spirit is truly amazing.” – John, New Zealand
“This guy is a legend… Read his long story and the photos (including the albums) and you will be amazed… my hero”
“Listen, you’re the man!” – Rick, USA
"You are AWESOME!” – Fan Mail
“You inspire me! Never change!!”
“Your book was refreshing. I thought I was the only one who thought this way about American social climate.” – Fan Mail
“Your website truly is a treasure! It's making me more self-aware in areas that I may have been slipping into "typical American mode" in, and is opening my mind even more.” – Megan, Wyoming
“Dear Winston, I have just read your article Propaganda vs. real life in America. I only wish I could be so eloquent - its as if you have been reading my thoughts. I came here for over 20 years ago searching for the stars with my 2 kids.”
“I cannot express in words how impressed I am by your work and how accurate and true you are to yourself. I have lived in the US for 13 years now, and I can't but agree with every single word you wrote… Congratulations again on a job well done!!!!!” – Fan Mail
“Everything you wrote in your treatise is precisely to the point… It took me a while to realize that there was a chasm of difference between the media picture of America and real life, but when the truth hit home, I felt very disappointed and empty. I even had a lapse of self-condemnation as I thought the problem was in me. I have gotten over it now and can see clearly. Your writing puts all the pieces of the puzzle together very well.”
“I am from Athens, Greece. I came across your web site while googling trying to find web sites with articles about the differences between Europeans and Americans. I am writing an essay for one of my courses at college and I needed that kind of info. I have to admit that I was hooked up by your articles. Many of the situations that you describe were like a revelation to me.” – Kostas, Athens, Greece
“A GREAT WEB SITE! Thanks for the many hours of work it took to put together. Also I curse you for the many hours I’ll spend reading it all. ;) Thanks again.”
“Sir, first off, let me tell you in one word what I thought of your e-book... OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!! I'm currently reading it right now and it is great!!!” – Darryl, NY, Retired Air Force
“I have been reading the stories and adventures of Winston, and like the rest of you I'M IMPRESSED!!!... I am striking out on a BOLD and NEW path for my life such as Winston did… I love how he persevered and finally got the girl of his dreams. WAY TO GO WINSTON...“
“Winston - what a fantastic site. Your trip to Russia makes me weep tears of laughter. Keep it up (as it were).”
“Winston, as I was watching your adventures, I was thinking what a lucky person you are to have experienced so many things - regardless if they were positive or negative. You did this on your own, and you should be proud of yourself. Most of your enemies simply sit and write behind a computer, but you have lived it - which means a lot more. Think of how many men in the US will never have the chance to do what you have done. I guess what I admire most about you is that you been willing to share your experiences with the rest of the world to enjoy, and I am happy to have come across your site 3 years ago…“ – Giovanni
“Winston keep up the good work. I really feel you are one of the more intelligent and insightful individuals out there on the internet. I’m sure there are lots of American men of all backgrounds who agree with your articles. Ignore the naysayers and bitter Americans out there who want to bring you down to their level. Be yourself and be happy with life. Life is short and sometimes that’s all we can do is just be.” – David
“Cheers Winston, Keep the faith! As Teddy Roosevelt said, ‘The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything.’ You live your beliefs while your critics just sit back and second guess you...Godspeed!”
“I like Winston's style because he lets it all hang out and that allows others to make objective observations. Winston blitzes into the unknown with his hair on fire and, for better or worse, allows others to live vicariously though his exploits. Some may not agree with Winston's modus, among other things, but nobody can deny Winston is a trailblazer.”
”Winston talks the talk, and he walks the walk. Thats more then can be said for most. Kudos Winston.”
“I tell ya Winston, you are gathering quite the little fan club… Well, its like the old World War II motto goes; "If your taking flak, you must be over the target."
“After months and months of observing your views and actually reading through your articles, and experiencing various American people, I made a conclusion that you are correct and I fully agree with your views on Asian/American mentality vs European/Latin/Australian mentality. I would rather be happy and live life to the fullest than rot my life in bad quality with large money that cannot buy happiness. Thanks for your enlightening articles.”
– Email from a former critic
"I thank you Winston from the bottom of my heart for showing me and other lonely men THE WAY to PARADISE. You beat out ALL of the PUA propaganda, so called “guru's and experts” out there and you actually are OUT THERE DOING instead of just talking about it. Those seduction books I use to buy are total GARBAGE compared to what YOU'VE proven and you put PUA artist and experts to complete shame with SIMPLICITY and REAL PROVEN SOLUTIONS WINSTON..."
"Thank you Winston for all of your help. Your knowledge and experiences are inspirational and GOLDEN and you are well liked and honored by MANY. Do not let the HATERS get you down. Because these types of people will not do for themselves, than to bash you all day in B.S. topics and post. Why don't they step outside the matrix and go abroad to be happy also? Keep up the good work my friend. You're doing EXCELLENT !!!"
"It's such a wonderful time in my life and YOU are the person I thank for this guidance and for making HappierAbroad.com and giving lonely guys everywhere a chance at solutions and cures to datelessness and hope to having a life that is fullfilled overseas. I'm so excited and so happy now Winston."
"Hi Winston, your site and stories are excellent. I think your detractors are envious and secretly admire you as well. Ken."
"Having been in band, I've done well with women in America, but I am very well travelled outside the US and only the blind could not see that what you say is true."
"Hi, I've not just read your advice, but I've followed it too! I'm so glad to leave the West because of all the heart-ache and problems with women who really don't want or need a man, so theres no use trying. Russia is poorer, but I don't need all the consumer sh*t & women don't expect me to buy it for them (what a relief). I hope more people think for themselves and Winston's site is great for free-thinkers."
"Winston's blogs and photojournals are epic! I have a new internet hobby now: reading Winston's stories.
I'm moving to St Petersburg in the new year and as I was researching I came across Happier Abroad, and I couldn't agree more with the overall message… Winston is absolutely right from my experiences. I had to go somewhere and then come back to see the light, but I definitely see it."
“You are an infinite inspiration to me and I feel tremendous admiration to the fact that you actually put your dream into reality!!!”
“SWEET website. WOW! Inspiring, useful, fun. Fascinating to see the reactions of your readers!
As one pointed out, you really are a leader. Unusually truthful and courageous.”
“To sum it up, Winston Wu has just become my new inspiration, my new god, my new role model, my hero, my icon. Seeing so many ****ing pics of him with harems of chicks kissing and hugging him makes me feel like a ****ing poor sap. I need to learn how to be a real man who gets to **** real girls from this guy. I think I seriously lack a good male role model in my childhood years though I had a father.”
“I want everyone on this site to know that Winston is 100% right. I have lived abroad and seen the difference in my social life, in how it made me feel inside; and I've also seen the antisocial lame-ass dating scene in the US, and how it undermines a man's confidence and inhibits his ability to simply be himself. It is an absolute shame, and no man should have to live that way. Thanks for a great site Winston. You're doing a service to all American guys by exposing the limited possibilities for happiness and social connection in the US.”
“man - you are the man - i have looked through very briefly on your site - but i want to walk in your footsteps man - i'm depressed here in the U.S - no action - absolutely no satisfaction - i see some of your fotos - all of the girls look hot to me. i don't even have any chances with the ugly girls here in the U.S - sucks.” – Dave
“I would recommend this website to anyone, HappierAbroad.com, created by Wu, a genius at any rate. He’s someone who’s actually gonna show you proof. All these other websites you go to, they really don’t show you anything. His book has changed my view of American culture 180 degrees.”
“Your book has exposed me to a paradigm shift with regard to dating. My collection of dating/seduction books is now merely a repository of rubbish.”
"I appreciate Winston doing this site because frankly, I know he's right. Before I moved abroad my social life in the US was a 2 out of 10 (at best). When I moved abroad all that changed dramatically, and I made true friends and dated gorgeous women."
"I've never been to the Philippines, Winston, but after spending a month in Thailand I'm willing to believe everything you say about it... That was my first trip abroad, Winston, and it has convinced me that your position that Western guys can have a better life in other countries is absolutely correct."
"I believe in Wu. Wu was right about the Polish girls and them being really friendly and giggling and blushing. Wu was right about being able to go over to the girls' tables and immediately go and sit with them. Wu was right about the society being more open in Poland than in America. WU WAS RIGHT!!! ... Wu is trying to help other people's lives. And he helped my life because I stumbled upon his website and read his stuff and I was inspired in part by his website to try Poland. AND IT WORKED!!!!! WU WAS RIGHT!!!! WU WAS CORRECT!!!"
"You are the man, Winston!... I recommend your website and YouTube videos to everybody... Your personal accounts of women (and people in general) being more approachable, friendly, and caring in other parts of the world serve as hope to those of us living in the frigid, hostile U.S.” – Ghostforever, Happy Bachelors Forum
"I've been through your site before and I admire your courage in going out there, actually taking action and sharing your experiences... Most people don't even get out of their own bedroom door, for you to actually go out and do it, and then share with everyone else what you learned earns you a ton of respect." – Kestral, Happy Bachelors Forum
"Winston, Your analysis of the social scene in the U.S. is spot-on. This country is social hell... Thank you, Winston, for providing reassurance to those of us who haven't traveled as extensively as you." – Ghostforever, Happy Bachelors Forum
"Dude you are awesome... Happierabroad, nomarriage, and the-niceguy gave me hope! Your like.... the justice league? or something!" – EstevanMusic, YouTube comment
"You're the man Winston! Fabulous channel! I wish I was in your shoes." – RussX5Z, YouTube comment
"Your a genius Wu and a pioneer for waking up your fellow countrymen to REAL WOMEN overseas the women in my country are about as bad. American men are good and decent and deserve better than the feminist nightmare there being offered in their own country." – Jimmy27Paul, YouTube comment
“I never write to a public space as am very private. But what got me in your site that it is very deep; it looks at a problem of insanity (again, stated by those who are from abroad, or Americans who tasted life/cultures abroad; Americans themselves are in a delirious oblivion about themselves and their "culture") of Americans, their life style and "culture" at every angle, in depth, diagnosing the insanity, looking at the possible causes of it, and offering suggestions to cure. It was by far the most comprehensive and cumulative work I've ever encountered on the subject. Big thanks to you for that, for devoting your life to this cancerous world's problem. At first I thought that emphasis on dating is a bit shallow and might repel some thinking, deep people, but the more I looked at it, I came to think that it might just do the opposite...” – Tatiana
“What I also love about this ebook is Winston's philosophical view of the world. I have never in my life seen an Asian guy with such a brilliant, philosophical mind. There have been times when I thought I was crazy thinking the way I was thinking, especially as it pertains to America and its awful, non-inclusive culture. However, after reading Winston's words, I totally feel relieved and vindicated, knowing full and well it's society that is crazy, not me!” – Steve Hoca, Amazon.com Review of Happier Abroad Ebook
“Apparently the only people who were given the ability to think for themselves are those with negative bloodtypes. Want confirmation? Take a look at far-east Asia. 99.99% RH positive blood. Who is their most promising free thinker? Winston Wu. Enough said. What do they value? Work. Work till you drop bitch! Impress your neighbors.” – Odbo, Forum
“Winston Wu is the kind of guy who refuses to be a victim. You won't find him whining that he can't get a date or the whole world is against us, therefore why bother. He's a fighter trying to do the best he can and maybe he overcompensates although I don't think so… But you have to admit, deep down, he intrigues you. The man's got game albeit a crazy, new, unusual kind of game but game nonetheless. I know game when I see it.” – Comment on Asiance magazine article
