I remember meeting this guy a few times.

He had lived in Vietnam for years and spoke the language fluently. It looks like he ended up marrying a local.

A good blog to check out if you're interested in Vietnam:
http://singlemansparadise.com/

I recently revisited Vietnam. Wow, it seems like there are a lot more expats (mostly white guys) compared to even just five years ago. A lot of them are English teachers. I think they go to Vietnam to have a better dating life and/or to escape from their economic problems back home. Not all the locals like it though- some, especially the men, I think feel some resentment. I definitely noticed some unfriendly looks directed at me. A British guy told me his Vietnamese girlfriend sometimes gets called a "con đỉ" (whore) when they are out together in public. Once you learn some swear words you'll hear Vietnamese (especially the men) using them all the time. One very common phrase is "đụ má" which literally means "f*ck your mother." There are a lot of scams. There are really only two taxi companies that you can trust (Mailinh and Vinasun).The biggest danger is probably the traffic. I knew some teachers who were involved in some pretty serious accidents when I lived there previously. One was in a coma for a few weeks. While he was lying in the street in an unconscious state after the accident he was robbed of everything he had in his pockets- not a very uncommon occurrence from what I've heard. I was involved in an accident which turned out not to be that serious fortunately. It's probably best to make sure you have good health insurance if you live there long term.

I'm skeptical of that guy, not that it can't happen but he doesn't have a single original pic on the blog, but instead random porn gifs.
He also seems to be just pitching the Cupid sites.

It seems every place gets eventually ruined by an endless supply of thirsty western chumps. The clock is ticking.

We're in a different era of HA now. More chumps are going abroad, but we can still succeed and leave them behind by being more clever and more willing to dig in our heels.

Most chumps will relegate themselves to 'discovered' places, like capital cities, won't make any attempt at the local language, won't try to understand the culture he is immersed in...will try to remain in his bubble while perhaps taking part in some advantages, like women, if possible.

Once an HA finds his country, and is determined to make his life there, he can potentially rise to a level that a chump can't even imagine.

Thinking about the imbalance, it would make sense the supply seems endless. If there are, being conservative, say, just 50 million obese/nuts women in the west, that means there can be in time up to 50 million unmatched chumps potentially roaming the world. Of course I just made that number up but even just a fraction of that would be a staggering number.
Problem is I think, when it comes to the effects on local and target locations, supply and demand is not really a linear phenomenon. I want to open a thread on this general concept.

Thank God for that, i hope you're right.
