OKCupid says I would be happier abroad.

Postby onethousandknives » August 30th, 2015, 7:04 pm

Hey *********************,

We’ve just finished generating heat maps that explain where your best matches are, from all around the world. Here are your results. All for you. Calculated from your match answers, in graphical form. Bonne chance!

So for the map, green is friendly, blue is enemy. If you notice, it pretty much looks like a happierabroad map.

Oddly, without me initiating it, about a third of my page views and messages are from girls in those countries. I apparently show up in Filipina's quickmatch?

But it's strange, no? That OKCupid comes to the same conclusion.

Anyway, have a lovely Vietnamese girl to talk to, but I found this very interesting.

Makes sense
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

here's what one of my friends in China told me about Russian women: “千万别娶毛子的女人,他们比我们东北爷们还要爷们。我们亚洲人性格比较温和,内敛,完全无法驾驭她们。她们老得很快,一过三十就成大妈了。”

My response: "我觉得金发碧眼的她们远远没有我们的女人好。而且我对毛子和他们国家的印象也非常差,他们好野蛮。“

Him: "毛子夺走海参崴我们还没有找他们算账呢。等哪一天中国强大了一口气拿下整个西伯利亚。”


My friend: "Don't marry Russian women, they are even more masculine than northeastern Chinese men. Us Asians have a more calm and reserved demeanor, we are completely unable to handle them. They don't age well, they start getting fat at 30."

Me: "I think those blonde hair blue eyed Russian girls aren't nearly as good as our women. I also have a poor impression of Russsians and their country, they seem barbaric."

Him: "They took Vladivostok from us and we have't had our payback. Once China becomes stronger we will take all of Siberia."


LOL he's quite nationalistic.

Why? I was thinking you can read Chinese? No?

I can read many Chinese characters, but sometimes I see no relation to Chinese writing used in Japanese.
I understand maybe 70 percent or so.

In Siberia you can still find honest women, but for sure the white Russian woman does not fit the Chinese way of life, but there are also some Asian women in Siberia.

I see, yes, true, Korea abolished most Chinese characters in its writing, now in South Korea only about 300 very simple Chinese characters are in use. Only something like big-small, up-down, 1-2-3 and so...

That's always my problem when visiting South Korea, I can understand many words, but cannot read anything....
I should learn how to read the Korean Hangul, I will have enough time for that after my retirement, still a few years more to work.

I do feel quite thankful for this site now, actually. It does seem again, about 1/3 or some days 1/2 of my profile views are foreign. Why and how OKCupid made this happen, or why this happened, I don't know. But I've gotten some hands on confirmation of the situation now, after talking to some foreign girls on this site. I did get one date with an American girl from the site, but it was pretty mediocre. But the one American girl I'm talking to now said she could take up to a week to reply to messages because she's "busy" and this last message took 9 days. I told her I'd appreciate it if she could take only 3-4. If she says anything negative about that or can't keep that simple fairly reasonable expectation (I do not think 3-4 days is "clingy") not really any point in bothering with her anymore. Another girl talked with me, stopped responding for 2-3 weeks, then responded she worked through her personal issues, then the same day she gave the response to me she deleted her profile, likely because I didn't respond in 15 minutes after her taking 2-3 weeks.

I mean, a girl literally across the world with a reversed time zone talks to me everyday, and has to struggle with English to do so. I've had a lot better conversations for the most part with these foreign girls. They are legit more intelligent and more in tune about the actual going on of the world. Even if they criticize, they seem to do it nicely and helpfully and not really in a bitchy manner. I dunno, talking to these girls seems natural and fluid, then American girls it doesn't. There's sort of always the expectation the American girls are judging me. It just doesn't feel natural, it feels stunted and weird. But then foreign girls everything feels natural. And then for looks, it's almost no contest with the foreign girls. They're amazingly gorgeous, and not just in an angled face picture with boatloads of make up on. These were all my impressions and what obviously this site espouses, but it took some time I guess for me to get a direct comparison and more direct first hand experience talking with them. I don't know, maybe it all is some quantum physics observer create your own reality stuff or whatever, but these girls are just way better.

So I'm quite happy that for whatever reason OKC is facilitating my HA dreams and showing me the world. So, I don't know how exactly I got the results I'm getting from this site, but I'm liking it. Not abroad yet, but this is really helping drive the point home I cannot be f***ing around here.

It is by far the easiest writing system in the world. Far easier than our Roman letters for forming words. I learned it in 2 days. Still, so many years later I can read it okay, though don't understand it.

How do you even access that world map on OkCupid? Are you using the app and the app has an extra feature compared to the actual website?

With the map, it seems like a trial or special thing according to others online, only a few get it. But even before I got the map, I messaged a girl from the Philippines who looked at my profile, and she said "huh, you just appeared in my quickmatch..." (BTW, probably the highest proportion of girls is girls from the Philippines or sometimes Philippino girls living in Qatar/UAE for work.) So OKC was throwing me into foreign girl's quickmatch. I didn't as far as I know, consciously mark off any settings for this. However in my profile, I wrote I planned on traveling, said I liked a bunch of foreign stuff, and I'm possibly even moving out of the USA in the next year or two, so this may be why they're doing what they're doing?

One of my friends (maybe he is being a hater though?) has brought up it's suspicious that OKCupid is giving me so many profile views from foreign girls. 1/4 might be a high estimate, on my first page of visitors though, 4/25 are foreign, and it's about this trend on the next 4 pages of views (I get 22 views a week and about one like daily.) Asked two friends, one said in like 3 years he got maybe 3-5 foreign girls total views, and my profile has been up 1.5 months now. The other said for his fake profiles he made as a social experiment or whatever he got none ever, and he said he was like a CEO and wanted to travel too. For country roundup, as I said, the Philippines is the highest. But I've gotten Latin America (Panama, Ecuador, Brazil) and most recently a girl from Bosnia, and for Asia, Philippines, Vietnam, and Malaysia.

So weird glitch, someone pulling weird strings? Who knows.

For the Vietnamese girl I'm talking to now, she's really quite amazing. Kind of everything I've ever dreamed of really. One interesting thing is she is actually OK with me complaining about USA and seems actually quite interested in the complaints. She actually brought up the first complaint, by remarking "Americans seem to do a lot of things themselves..." when I told her for example I was painting my bedroom, I had to explain to her costs of certain things here. But for the biggest culture shock moment, though, she showed me some American songs she liked, a few I said I liked, but I told her I didn't like one because the lyrics are too lewd. I showed her the lyrics to one. And then one of her favorite songs, she said "omg, I feel so much shame" once she translated the lyrics to it in Google translate. I told her not to be ashamed, it's us who should be ashamed, but just to be careful and look up the lyrics of any foreign song she likes and run them through Google translate.

By comparison, there was a girl I kind of liked who I actually worked with a couple years ago and recognized. She rejected me when I messaged her because I was too shy and didn't talk to her much where I used to work 2 years ago. So last night I see her profile in a row of matches, and she cropped out a picture of her breasts with nipple showing as her opening photo, and now has multiple nip slip photos. On her profile she says "I'm looking for something serious." The thing with her was she was super quiet too, and seemed like a relatively "innocent" girl as well, at least two years ago when I worked with her. But nope. At least I dodged a bullet I guess.

So American girl shamelessly posts nipple slips on her public profile, Vietnamese girl feels shame at listening to American pop music with lyrics about promiscuity and doing drugs.

For some international girl fun, though. A Bosnian girl visited my profile and I messaged her and we talked and it was going well. But I told her I made a spinach and cheese burek. And... she flipped out. She insisted a burek can only have meat in it. And only beef. Or else it cannot be called a burek.

Winston was much more happier abroad than he ever was in America. Except for Taiwan, he was happier in every country that he visited.
