You obviously sound bitchy that i was right all along mr im gonna look for educated high quality women and not care about sex when i get there. lol of course you can find a good looking quality woman when you get there but you can do that in america also as you always mention so whats your point that you can do that in philippines of course its easier there but your successful in america also? Your coming off as a arrogant douchebag now.


You two are posting faster than I can type, lol, then again, I'm on an iPad.

First off, you can't hardly do that in American at all , most girls are overweight and entitled, and stuck up and unapproachab as every guy wants the slim decently attractive ones , it's near impossible to pull of in the US what can be pulled of abroad . It's wayyyyy easier abroad like in the Phils.

Now I see why 99% of message boards are moderated. Maverick came here to post a honest to good great trip and then someone like Newlife has nothing to do but attack him. Maverick , you logically countered all of newlife's assertions well and explained your pointe well. He hasn't proved a single thing. Do what most of us do, recognize him for what he is, a troll and definitely a Phils hater.

Winston, not too many guys will want to post trip reports if they see that they will just get hi jacked like this. Newlife seems to have this pattern . Not good for trying to grow your forum. Just my 2 cents worth.

Dude, why are you here? I'm starting to think you're a troll, like other posters have suggested.

You're putting words into my mouth. Like I said, I enjoyed the girls, for the most part.

You can find alot of quality women in phil but they wont be on a dating site and youll have to cold approach them. And they wont push themselves on you in an aggressive manner like a scammer or hoe. Not really any different than america.


MUCH different than America. Like I said, I do get girls in the US, but I've never had responses like the ones that I've had in the Philippines. Not even close.

I do think that it's better to cold approach there, but what's wrong with that? Cold approaching, in general, is much funner than talking to girls on dating sites. And the best thing about cold approaching is that the girls are there in real time as opposed to being in some random part of the country that's 1 hour away as per Google Maps (or 3 hours away by taxi.....since Google Maps was ALWAYS wrong there lol).

There isn't many attractive women that are available to foreigners, most of the ones who will date you aren't hot just cute or they are almost in maid territory. You may think they are all hot cause thats your new to the country spend a month there and you will realize most women there are ugly or average and the hot girl you think is just borderline attractive.


I can't speculate on this since I wasn't there long enough to adequately assess the situation, but even mguy (who notoriously had issues with white people) said that it's possible to get hot girlfriends there for young, good-looking white guys.

Low hanging is one thing but being with a hoe/scammer is not good for the long term though. its fun but it just kills your ego and you realize your spending it on a girl who doesn't care about you. My bargirl was the best at sex and chemistry but it gets old when they only are there while the cash is flowing and if its gone they split and would screw any guy once your gone. If your there just for 1 or 2 month vacations it may be ok for you since your just quick tourist. But if you go back multiple times or stay there for long periods your gonna want more from a woman.


That's exactly what I said. I WANT a few girlfriend experiences to start out with. I'm not ready for marriage yet.

Interesting how you shunned me when I said you will need low hanging fruit to enjoy your vacation because the quality girls will be distant and not much fun. YOu wound up with low hanging fruit in the end and are now saying you want semi-pro/bargirl when you come back LOL If i were you id strive for something more than a hoe/scammer. At least low hanging fruit that isn't a professional hoe.


I didn't intentionally seek out "low hanging fruit". Also, what's wrong with a professional girl? If you're just looking for sex and short-term good time, I think it's better to go p4p or get a semi-pro (low hanging fruit are semi-pros, man) than to take a decent girl's virginity. The virgins are for marriage. The pros/semi-pros are for fun.

yeah its ok but honestly most including me didn't realize when coming here that if you want long term relationship material your just gonna wind up with low hangers or hoes or scammers or milfs. if you want quality it will be awhile to find a hot quality girl to court her or even find her. she may have a boyfriend or not be on dating sites or not open to foreigners. if the girl is ugly or borderline attractive many are open to foreigners or dating you but even with them many are just using you so if your gonna get used better to go for a hot girl.


Pretty much every successful guy on this forum (ie: not you, you are not successful) has said multiple times that it takes a while to find a decent girl that's also attractive. By just reading the forum, I figured as much. This trip confirmed it.

Its good you think most of the women are attractive. Someone has to take the borderline chicks while the rest are seeking the ones who actually are hot. :)


LOL and how's that going for you? For someone that whines and bitches so much, you talk a lot of shit.


No one said you need to date a virgin. Not all low hanging fruits are hoes. Ok good luck with your hoes and scammers you now prefer. You obviously sound bitchy that i was right all along mr im gonna look for educated high quality women and not care about sex when i get there. lol of course you can find a good looking quality woman when you get there but you can do that in america also as you always mention so whats your point that you can do that in philippines of course its easier there but your successful in america also? Your coming off as a arrogant douchebag now.


You are by far the biggest retard on this forum. Extremely annoying. And everything you say is contradictory.

You were not right. I thought that I was hanging out with an educated girl, but she lied about everything. My mistake (I now realize) was in my screening on the dating sites. I needed to start talking to them many months in advance, which I failed to do. Also, I should have spent WAY more time cold approaching. And next time, I'll go alone. I spent way too much time trying to appease my friend by keeping the online girl around because he was really into her friend. I wanted to ditch her pretty early on (though, I ultimately learned a TON by keeping her around....so it worked out in the end).

Ultimately, my goal of this trip was to learn as much as I could about the Philippines, the culture, and the girls. And, for being there just 2 weeks, I did pretty well.


Nothing you did was anything that special. You know nothing of the culture here. Ive befriended pastors here. and you think some scamming or gay filipino trying to drug you in your hotel room and getting bsed by a freelance hoe on the dating sites and falling in love with a bargirl is a success 2 week vacation. Anyways i make probably 5 times the amount of money you make good luck in the military you slave haha.


You seem to know nothing about the culture either, you worthless piece of shit. You're so stupid that you actually believe the bullsh*t that you write after one conversation with a pastor there. I know your type. You sit in your room, don't talk to anyone, too scared to talk to locals, definitely too scared to meet women. You probably do some low income black hat nonsense online that will probably not last (and when it doesn't, you'll be shit out of luck because you have no back up plan). You're a nerd (except you're a stupid one) and you went to the Philippines, not out of choice, but because, even at the young age of 32, you can't get a girl to spit at you in the US. It's guys like you that give white American guys a bad name all around the globe.

You have no purpose on this forum, you give awful advice, and your posts are painful to read because of the spelling and grammatical mistakes (are you a retard? Because only retards write the way you do).

But, if you'd like, we could settle this in person. I could show you some of the training that I've learned as a "military slave". I live near UCSB. Come out here when you get back to California and I'll beat the shit out of you. How does that sound, sweetheart? :P

its obvious by your reaction you got pwned on your first trip and are afraid to admit it. at least I have the balls to accept reality unlike you.

Do what most of us do, recognize him for what he is, a troll and definitely a Phils hater.

Winston, not too many guys will want to post trip reports if they see that they will just get hi jacked like this. Newlife seems to have this pattern . Not good for trying to grow your forum. Just my 2 cents worth.

for a guy who is supposedly so successful in america your 2 week vacation was average at best not successful. Most guys could have that experience. Im sure you could do better in a longer vacation and Ive said its easier in philippines. but for a supposedly handsome cool young guy you did nothing special. Your just an arrogant prick, military suits your attitude.

Today, I asked Winston to let me be a mod, (Winston had asked me several times before to do that) but since others have taken that roll its not possible as of yet. I'd be a pretty laid back mod and let most stuff go, but people who "REPEATEDLY" cause trouble with hit and run insults wouldnt last a millisecond in my world. One way to see a forum tank really fast is to allow trolls to run amuck. If Winston had approved me today , newlife would have been toast right off the bat, no questions, no warnings, no nothing. Just DONE! Having a different opinion is great. Doing so in an insulting matter over and over again isn't. Lucky for him Winston only has me on the mod waiting list for now.

Your coming off as a arrogant douchebag now.


You two are posting faster than I can type, lol, then again, I'm on an iPad.

First off, you can't hardly do that in American at all , most girls are overweight and entitled, and stuck up and unapproachab as every guy wants the slim decently attractive ones , it's near impossible to pull of in the US what can be pulled of abroad . It's wayyyyy easier abroad like in the Phils.

Now I see why 99% of message boards are moderated. Maverick came here to post a honest to good great trip and then someone like Newlife has nothing to do but attack him. Maverick , you logically countered all of newlife's assertions well and explained your pointe well. He hasn't proved a single thing. Do what most of us do, recognize him for what he is, a troll and definitely a Phils hater.

Winston, not too many guys will want to post trip reports if they see that they will just get hi jacked like this. Newlife seems to have this pattern . Not good for trying to grow your forum. Just my 2 cents worth.


Yeah, f**k this. I'm done with this bullshit forum.


NewLife is a troll...sigh. Trolls have taken over the forum. You happy now, Rock?


Was allowing trolls Rock's idea?? :shock:


Yes! He felt I was in-pinging on free speech--even though I only wanted to get rid of the trolls. Plus, Fschmidt will not ban anyone as a moderator. (I respect him but I don't agree). Plus Rock called me a "racist" too. LOL...

I do not understand why Maverick who wrote the report gave in to this troll so quickly. He should contact the admin/moderators and waiting for a reaction from them before deleting the OP.

I read this trip report during lunchtime, found it interesting and considered now in evening to write a reply - to my surprise I find only more troll postings and angry replies to this troll and the trip report already deleted.

What remains now of this trip report are only these troll comments and those angry replies to this troll. Very pity indeed.

Maybe the entire thread should be deleted?

This was a good report, with many other small details, like food, jumping from island to island in the Philippines and meeting many people within a short time of only 14 days.

There was plenty of stuff for reasonable replies. This does not mean you must agree with the author of the report about all and everything what he writes.

For example about food in Cebu, there are plenty of not expensive restaurants in the shopping malls like Ayala, Robinson or nearby the malls, like next to the Country Mall - but there are also pension-houses which operate a cheap and good restaurant on the roof of their small hotels, for example behind the Osmena Circle.

Do not expect cheap and good food from eateries which are used by ordinary Filipino people. Philippine income is 3 times lower than those of China and Thailand. It is a poor country. Wide areas especially those next to the mountains are nothing but a big slum, often with bad water supply and brownouts. Many people do not have a refrigator, so what kind of food can you expect there?

As you stay only 14 days, better pay a little more in clean restaurants, with aircon and stainless kitchen. I am visiting Cebu since many years, I know the city very well and never found my food overpriced or of low quality.

Cebu in general is not for everybody and for sure you need time to find your way around, with the city itself and with the Filipinos living there. Good information where to go and what to do is sometimes not so easy to get.

What is confusing some visitors is that Cebu City is getting dark early and in night there is nothing outside except plenty of criminals. Make sure you are back in your hotel room not later than 11 PM for your own safety. Shopping malls are closing early too, usually at 9 PM.

I thought this forum was "Happier Abroad", not "Miserable Away." Newlife was just waiting in the shadows for this one to be posted. Ready to pounce and discredit any sort of fun or dare I say *gasp* Happiness. I'm just disappointed I had to settle for the comments and couldn't read the post myself.

That was a great report Maverick (if you're still reading). Much appreciated.
A two week trip is a flash IMO, for such a short span you did great.

One of the great benefits of a location like this is not just the s*x, but the nice treatment you get from the ladies in general. That alone can be a life saver for many guys.

As far as this whole debacle goes, one thing that makes the forum look bad is that everybody quotes the whole thread for every reply :roll:
I think it's better to just quote the last item, if someone else's post is in between. Otherwise no quoting should be necessary.
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Yes, of course.

However it is not wrong to explain that you would recommend to do something differently if you have experience about living a certain foreign country - to be 'happier abroad' is not so easy and sometimes it is ending as 'miserable away'.

Here in Asia there are plenty of Western men who are not happier abroad. - They were cheated by foreign women, lost their money for strange businesses, do suffer a lot as they have no health insurance and cannot pay for medical services, show up with expired visa and even expired passports, own nothing just sitting somewhere and counting the minutes and hours... often into drugs and alcohol...finally jumping out of a window or sent home...

While I recommend every Western man to get on an airplane and to discover the world, I think it is fair to say, before your departure make sure you are financially stable for relocation. If not, better take only vacation, enjoy a few weeks and go home again, working and for saving up for a better future.

In this sense, Maverick did the right thing, 2 weeks and back again, nice trip and good time and back to work.
