I'm a mid 30s male who really needs to get out of the US. I do ok dating here, but it's a TON of work and American Woman drive me crazy. I'm just sick and tired of used up broken women with no femininity left. Basically my dating life consists of some sex and nothing else, in fact I'd rather not have sex now than have it. Sounds crazy right?
Anyway I really want to sell all my possessions and leave the US for a while. I have savings and even will consider cashing out my retirement plans and taking the penalties to get out, I've really reached that point of frustration. I am single with no kids or wife, I rent, and I just have some immediate family here.
My main question for you guys is...how are you making money on the road? Are you guys just independently wealthy? Burning through savings? I'm not a programmer by trade, but have been spending a lot of time learning it to possible make it my source of income. Anyway appreciate the advice, and I wish the best of luck to everyone trying to leave this toxic shit hole.
Welcome to the forum, you are one more proof wanting to GTFO is not a 'losers' thing.
I myself am burning through some savings but working on some projects of my own.
As far as coding:
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
There is only money in Coding nowadays in America. Rest all is Casino. There is no assurance of steady flow of income which could support your life style abroad.
Cash all your paper assets out and convert them into silver............I have a feeling all paper assets dominated in $'s are going to be taking a major haircut shortly.

I'm age 55 and retired long ago at age 38 or so after piling up savings as a computer programmer. It worked for me as a career, but I've been out of the business for so long I have no idea if it's still good. I think it's much better to get rich in the USA, then retire and live in cheap countries, rather than trying to work remotely from cheap countries.
I co-sign what he said.
Depends. If you want one woman to be your wife, then it makes more sense to stay where you are and import one. But if your intent is to monger through many women, then that is different.
Just think, unless you have steady passive income, if you have to look for a job, you will be the foreigner, especially in non-western countries which don't have governments which favor foreigners. That will be tough.
You'll also have no family or friends, which may or may not deter you.
Also, if your picker is faulty, moving overseas isn't going to fix your faulty picker. Your odds of picking a good woman may improve. However there is no guarantee that you'll get a sane woman until you fix your picker, if it is broken.
I figure that somewhere between 50-70% of American women are just beyond help. You just got to figure out how to eliminate the crazies before you get in too deep with them, especially with your heart (and possibly your private member). I've been burned really bad. Looking back I can spot the problems with the women who gave me problems: 1. Disobedient and/or stubborn women are out, even if she is only vocally disagreeable. No time for that nonsense and it can only get worse as time goes forward. 2. Pathological liars: Many women will tell all kinds of lies for no reason. These women are hopeless and you can't trust a word they say. 3. Mixed or misleading signals or flaking: After she has crossed you one time with playing games, cut her off. She doesn't respect you (or probably herself or anyone else). 4. Women who already have boyfriends but are willing to break up with them or have broken up with them for you. Those women are adulteresses who will do the same to you. 5. Unhappy, angry or miserable women (which goes along with number one): If they complain too much about ANYTHING, are rarely happy, rarely smile, or worse, if they are obviously angry people, then stay away. 6. You find out she's had many intercourse partners that year alone (as in more than one), and she has no good reason why it ended. (And we can add to that list, such as women who have odd sexual fantasies, such as the desire to get gangbanged by two or more men, signaling she's a potential major whore.)
A good man is above pettiness. He is better than that.
I think the US is a great place to make money if you have a skill that is in demand. Save as much as you can then go overseas. I'm not sure how easy it is to make any big money overseas.
America is finished economically speaking as soon as it's trumped as the world reserve currency.
Do people understand what they set up in 1973 and what it means once it is undone and we have to rely on our own ability to take care of ourselves without the PETRO $ con ? OUR ECONOMY IS GONE and a con illusion enforced at gunpoint is what has kept it afloat.

Thanks for the replies guys!
Honestly I think the longer I stay the less chance I'll actually leave. I understand the arguments for making $$ then retiring overseas thing is retiring is a LONG time away. I might even die before then! How much savings is enough? If I jump ship with 100k+ and go to say Thailand or Eastern Europe and also have a freelance programming business, it seems the cost of living is low enough for me to make it. Am I correct in this?
I don't really want to 'retire' in the sense that I stop working, I'd rather go overseas with a decent amount of savings where I can survive for a few years then just have an internet business. Maybe it's just a pipe dream.
In terms of programming, has anyone used any of the online bootcamps like UDacity or TeaLeaf academy to learn?
Do you have a college education? If you have a bachelors degree, you can take a certification course and teach English as a second/foreign language in just about any country in the world. The jobs usually afford you a middle class lifestyle in the country your working in, and a lot of jobs even provide free housing or give a housing allowance. Teaching English is the best and easiest way to expat.
