How can I monetize my knowledge of dating in Asia?

Postby PaulB » Tue May 01, 2012 8:37 pm

I've had a huge amount of success in this field, having met well over 100 girls in the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, etc. I feel that many foreigners have a terrible approach to dating in Asia and I think most, if not all, would greatly benefit from what I have to share.

What options do I have other than writing a book? I struggle with writing more than a few paragraphs at a time.

As much as you don't like it, a book is your best bet. You'll have to think of an idea and a way to structure all of your knowledge. Maybe separated by country, different types of approaches, different scenarios you've had work out personally, etc.
Abolish fear; abolish doubt; dismiss pride.

Start a dating website and offer a free trip to Asia as an incentive to join. I don't know of any dating site thats doing this.

I'm a writer and have seriously thought about knocking out an ebook on online dating with Asian women. Of course it's already been done to a certain extent; books do exist with info about dating, marrying, mongering, etc.

I think if you did it you would have to do it for the interest in the subject, not because you're gonna make big money. Clearly no one is making big money in this area.

It seems to me that there are some fundamental obstacles, some of which come through on this forum. Friends who I told about my online experiences either: didn't believe me; thought international dating was for losers; thought online dating was for losers; wouldn't travel out of the US to find women; or would like to travel but will never do it for a variety of reasons/excuses.

And of course, if you read this forum experiences and opinions are wildly different. One guy has incredible success in country X; another guy says it sucks. So merely wrtiting about your success is not enough. You'd really have to detail a methodology how a guy could be successful. And of course there are very different forms of success. The guy looking to go abroad and find a wife has little to do with the guy who wants to go mongering or find a temporary gf. So it's a big topic with lots of variety.

So at this point while the PUA culture is blowing up with some guys making money off of it, the international dating thing is a very small niche. That's why I say you'd have to love the subject and not think you're gonna makes piles of money.

Nonetheless, I think there is a market for this, even if it is a small one. Perhaps someday the market will be larger.

Huh? lol. Who is going to pay for this free trip? How can anyone offer a free trip with airfare and accommodations just for joining a dating site? What are you smoking? lol

Great points. I agree with pretty much everything.

This guy's book is a fabulous guide to Chinese women:

Sam Reeves

I would gladly market other guides of this quality to my readers, but note the emphasis on quality - this book is OUTSTANDING. There's another one for Japanese women, again the quality is stunning.

By the way, that website is mine, and it makes a bit of coin. But I'll warn you that it's brutally hard making money online, even in the dating niche. The latest Google update has skinned alive a whole load of people, and even my premier site got hit. I'm lucky I've got a huge datawarehouse full of stats - I know what makes money. But I don't make anything near enough to live on, and I've been a programmer for 15 years and had two years of mentoring on online business success.

Having said that there are obvious gaps in the market within Asian dating. I'm keeping a few choice ones to myself. But I will say that if you do some research you'll notice there aren't many Malaysian dating sites - there's no Malaysian Cupid for example. And to my knowledge there's not a single trustworthy marriage agency in China.

As to women success - well if I can get a result in Asia then anyone can. PUA may work well but the hottest Asian women are in China and the hottest Chinese women almost never speak any English.
