Thank you Polya for helping perpetuate the DRAMA as you call it. I missed your posts, no kidding.

Maybe more threads should be written about me, it does bring back supposedly dead members or lurkers haha. Perhaps a whole new board is in order, heyyy Winston.

Great idea G-girl, lol.

The forum needs more encouraging posts and more lifestyle abroad threads. Enough of the whoring escapades and women-bashing. Being happier abroad is more than mental masturbation and getting laid with hoes.

Maybe all the problems would be solved if Odbo would just come back, lol.

I also miss Globetrotter even tho he kinda lost it in his reincarnated version(s). Rural China musta done a number on him.

And I miss Jeygonza, Pinay Teacher, and Bella Ruth, tho the first 2 dropped off before getting very far here.

Even OilTrader was fun sometimes but Winston exposed him and scared him off for good.

O and my favorite, Repatriate. I wish he would come back even tho he was Winston's nemesis. I considered him the best Thailand specialist on the forum.

Who else am I forgetting?

Have you ever butchered a hog or a steer? Of course not, in fact, you don't exactly know what a steer is without looking it up.

How many firearms are you proficient with?

Do you own any reloading equipment?

Do you know the difference between #6 shot and 0 shot?

What is the difference between a magazine and a clip?

Do you carry a weapon on a regular basis?

When was the last time you fired a weapon?

Have you ever planted or harvested a garden? On that subject, what is the problem with hybrid plants?


You do not have the knowledge, real world skills or social skills to survive.
The posters here vary widely in both age and experience. I don't recall how much you have lived in the back country or similar 3rd world countries, but the experience is pretty helpful to all of the above if you are paying attention.
Now a young fellow like David lacks life experience, but I think he learns easily. If one has lived on the land in someplace like Navaho County AZ, you are a lot more likely to be proficient. Probably more than 50% of my friends there have done all of the above and then some. When I am back in the USA, that is where I call home, and it is one hell of a long ways from New Jersey or whatever.

In the kind of environment, we all pretty much are packing, and we tend to like the good stuff. It's a good place to keep an arsenal..(Kinda hard to keep it in the Philippines) it's "Friendly territory" for that kind of thing. I do not think I am exceptional among my peers- most of us are proficient up to 50 cal. Within the Philippines one has to be careful with what they do with weapons, but my AFP friends here keep me tuned up and someone seems to have left an Armalite at my house here...LOL just in case any rodents show up.

Within the USA, a good carry gun is the Taurus Tracker. Its slim for the 44 mag- a 5 shot revolver, but it is damned convincing in a pinch. For the back country I have a 454 C but I think it is overkill for most things. A 270 Remington is my best open country hunting rife- at least 25 years old and a bolt action, but shoots flat and long like a champ.
Last year when I was back in AZ, picked up a Serbu, the BFG-50A, which my wife thinks is very cool- but I would never tell her what it cost! LOL I took it out in some real open country and I have to say it is incredible, but I sure would not want to pack it far at around 25 pounds as I have it equipped, but really it is a blast to shoot.

I wonder if someone might put together a boot camp for survival skills...might help some good men.

But what's the point of those who HAVE success stories posting them? Like Xiongmao said, either no one is really interested in that, as they'd rather complain about women at home, or it just leads to attacks, flaming and racism. I tried to give this place another chance, but it keeps getting worse and worse. I believe my next post will my last...

I always like reading them and I also like reading your posts. Why does there have to be division? I'll read a trip report or a post complaining about Feminism and I'll learn from both. They both have value to me and I think they both contribute to the cause.

Factionalism is stupid. Sometimes people need reminders of how bad things are in the West in order to not fall back into bad habits.

As to the idea that Winston should cave to political correctness to attract more posters, experience has shown that it will have the opposite effect on a forum like this with an intrinsically politically incorrect theme. Look at what happened to the men are better than women forum after Dax/Dick appointed feminist mods to ban all the real anti-feminist posters. The forum became a bunch of female attention whores and manginas white-knighting them, which most people eventually got bored with, and now the forum is essentially dead. If Dax had been intending to make money with it then he would have made a big mistake by trying to pander to the PC crowd. The same thing has happened on many other forums with the same result.
This is a good point. And I agree. But the thing is, we are doing well attracting misfits and freethinkers, but not the mainstream crowd. To attract the mainstream requires some degree of political correctness. So we will always be in a niche.

I don't think anyone should be banned for their views, only for bad behavior.

Are people forgetting all of the pages about how bad feminism is and women in the West? That's a good portion of the website and I'm talking about pages outside the forum. So it seems like people are complaining about what they want Happier Abroad to be, not what it is.

This site is doing great job in atracting misfits and freethinkers as Winston pointed out, also site is full of betas, whoremongers, anti-social and awkward guys, guys who are considered failure at home when it comes to women.

What we dont have on this forum are natural pickup-artist type of guys, guys who are sccessfull with WW/AW, people are sick of AW haters.

We have a situation where everyone is either chronic masturbator or whoremonger or both, everyone seems to hate everyone.

I would rather have insights from guys who were able to find employment in other countries, staring their businesses and were successful, and other ways that men can be self-sufficient.

Also country insights would be more helpful.

The website is 'happier abroad'. We should remember that what had drawn people to the website in the first place. It can be a place where men can get advice on how to get information that can be helpful to make decisions on where to go and possibly what career they can seek.

Why would we exactly? Aside from whether crackheads, twitching perverts, illiterate criminals etc. would really add much to the forum, what would they have to do with the topic of leaving the West and being happier abroad?



It would be beneficial to hear from these kind of people, their take on the situation, how they fare abroad with foreign women.

Imagine having a few guys who are natural PUAs who are able to pick up in NYC and LA, guys who are part of 20% crowd,
these are men we can learn from, if you only hang out with losers like yourself, how the fuk you gonna progress?Whining abt AW gets old.
