Hey pals...new to the forum

Post by pdc99 » February 25th, 2012, 3:37 am

Hey guys. I came here, obviously, because I am having some difficulty starting relationships in the US. Kind of overwhelmed with all of the different suggestions on this site. I'm a white male, 5'6, a little above average, in second year of college, studying english.

Just wondering if anyone looks similar and would be able to make some suggestions or relate their experiences. I'm planning on probably teaching english overseas after I get my degree, and I also want to start traveling this summer, but want to make sure its a place I could meet women or eventually move to. (In addition to the lack of good women in the US, life here is kind of depressing in general)

My preference is asian girls, but it seems like most people on this forum agree that Korean and Japanese women aren't very open to dating western men, or have little interest in sex. I dated a Japanese exchange student for a little while until I found out she was asexual. (...)

I'd be open to be checking out any country except places in Africa. Don't really have any interest in moving to places like Russia or China permanently either.

thanks for the helpful info ;)

Hello pdc99, glad you found our forum. Your smart to think about teaching english as a second language overseas, that's a great way to get your foot in the door as far as having a job in a foreign country.
