I've got one pic of her here at the office but can't figure out how to post a pic... Any tips?
Does this topic need a song to go along with it?
'Guardians of the Galaxy' fans, this is for you
Many years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.
Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.
AB discussion thread
BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.
Man, admit it, she's a knockout and light years away from anyone you could ever achieve. This is the kind of young woman a man who is stable and serious about committing to a single woman (as opposed to mongering around) can get in the Philippines, with a little bit of time and effort.
One thing (American) men of Pete and Dave's generation surely have in much greater proportion than out broadband speed generation is...patience. Which (usually) has its rewards.
your contradicting. first you say I could never acheive then you say anyone with patience. Make up your mind.
No, I said far from anyone you, representative of this impatient, want-it-all generation, could ever achieve. If you stopped being so cynical and put some serious time and effort, perhaps showing yourself as a serious one-lady man and looking for love before sex and fun, and perhaps looking away from large cities, then your frustration and jadedness could be put to an end.
Bao3niang, it's absurd to marry a woman who's 7 years older than you are. Hell, I'm 46, but in the Philippines, I wouldn't even consider a woman over 30! You have to think ahead: When you're 40, you could still be in your prime while she's entering menopause!! The whole point of going abroad to find a woman is that it allows you to be picky. So take your time and hold out for the best.
As said already, the age difference ...
You never met this person in real life, right?
OK, have fun with some correspondence, but I doubt anything more than that will work out.
You have to meet her in person and spend a while together with her to know more...
But you yourself have admitted your job is not completely legal and could be shut down. Hell I could go out pushing some coke and make thousands of dollars. Doesn't mean I am a solid provider. But I'll refrain from judgement on that issue.
Now regarding money, even though you have a lot, you aren't really doing anything with it. Even in the Philippines you said you rarely go out and do anything and choose to work all the time. How is that happiness? You are saving for your future, I get it, but what if your future never comes? Wasting one's youth is a terrible thing and correct me if I'm wrong but you don't seem very happy at the current moment. So you are saving for a future that might not even be that lucrative or valuable in the end.
He doesn't want to have a serious relationship, get married, or have kids... so his 'future' will be him banging cheap sluts and bargirl hoes well into old age, and coming home to a big empty home. I rather be poor and have a loving wife then be rich and have no one to share my wealth with. And it's not as if you can take money with you when you die, either. He may consider an early retirement but with Newlife's obvious commitment issues, I seriously doubt it'll be a very rewarding retirement.
Some updates on Rose. Had a phone call with her though Viber 2 nights ago and we flirted with each other again. She called herself "old lady", which I responded to calling myself an "old man". She is good at flirting. She did bring up age and asked me why I don't find a woman locally, why I don't look for a Chinese woman in Chinatown etc. I said I have a special attraction towards her. She then mentioned that age isn't the problem but she is worried that I will not be able to handle her temper and that I do not fully understand things due to me being young. I said I've dealt with many moody people in my life. Then eventually as I kept persisting she said: "I don't know what to say."
She changed her phone number (I saw on Skype) and on her Skype wall wrote that she is lonely and sick of being this way. It turns out her friend in Calgary is a 30 year old Canadian guy that's divorced.she old me he is a friend of her uncle's. I told her the truth about Canada and the Anglosphere, which she said: "People here in the different parts of the Philippines have different attitudes too. So I think we should not judge and generalize." I check her number of contacts on Skype from time to time and when I checked that day it went from 5 to 9. RedMenace who hasn't posted on this forum for a long time but whom I Skype with told me it is not to worry about.
I told her she's sexy which she said "I'm not, OMG." After she was tired and went to take a nap I kept sending her messages telling her the reason I like her is because she's intelligent and looks younger than her age, and most importantly, I like mature women. She was busy yesterday so she didn't really talk to me. She's Christian too so I told her "God loves you and I love you too." Before I can actually go see Rose darling in SG what should be my next moves?
