What do you like most about this forum?

Postby Winston » October 26th, 2013, 2:59 am

Just out of curiosity, what do you guys like most about this forum? Which one of the following traits about this forum do you like best?

1. No politically correct censorship which allows you to say whatever you want and tell it like it is, straight from the heart, unlike other forums. No need to BS or pretend to be positive all the time. The placing of truth and honesty over political correctness and positivity, which on most forums is reversed.

2. The fellow like-minded posters here that make you feel validated so you know that you're not alone in how you think and feel. Great camaraderie with fellow honest truth tellers.

3. The knowledge and inspiration provided here about going abroad and becoming happier and making your dreams come true.

4. Venting ground for your frustrations about America and American women.

5. Winston's brilliant insights and articles that are unparalleled. lol

6. Winston's transparency where he sometimes admits things that make him look bad, making him an easy target to bully or pick on, but also makes him refreshingly honest and real as well.

7. I like all of the above equally.

I'm going to go with a mix of one and two. The reason I'm on this forum is to talk about things that I literally cannot with most of my friends, my girlfriend, or my family. I completely hate the politically correct nature of modern discourse, both on the internet and off. How can we ever make progress on difficult issues if we cannot talk about them in an honest and forward manner?

Another big reason I'm here is to pick up insights from people who have been to countries I have not yet been to, so that I will be better prepared on my future journeys. A lot of people here are up front about their experiences regarding each culture in a way you would not find on most other forums.

Also, the back-and-forth debates are helping me get my writing and reasoning skills back to being as sharp as they once were, I've been focused on the sciences for so long that I had all but lost my ability to write a persuasive argument. Such skills are important, as I might one day find myself in an administrative role or make a run for political office if I decide to stay in the U.S. In either role, crafting arguments is going to be critical to my success.

I like :

* Winston's modesty
* The fact that you can say whatever the hell you like, and yet it stars out the bad words. A bit like japanese porn (oh lord, it even starred out po rn)
* My avatar. I'm nowhere near as cool as Brando, but image is everything
* The fact that Winston has given us a list of things to choose from, just in case we can't think of stuff that we like. Very thoughtful

I don't like :

* The design of the forum. Actually I have a love/hate relationship with the design
* The fact that people don't seem to realise what a great poster I am
* The fact that Winston has never thanked me for buying his book. To be fair, I never told him. But still.
* There's a certain something missing. I don't quite know what it is. The forum needs to get busier, or something. Even though I'm not very keen on the folks over at MGTOW and Roosh, it's livlier. This place needs to liven up a bit

Number 1 is the most important. Don't ever change that part! Numbers 2 and 3 got me through some dark times. Number 4 has become very popular, but I think there's room for that stuff too. Number 5, well...you are always interesting and entertaining and perceptive. Number 6 is why you are HA's great leader, definitely a man of the people! 8)

I'll say #1

Plus, it is evident that you put a lot of work into these sites. It shows. But it seems to me that you focus on how FW look, and not what they are like as people. You argue with people that try and explain things. I've seen this happen when I was lurking and after I registered. Perhaps that is just your personality, so don't take that as criticism. I have my faults too.

The pics you posted are better at showing how things are than any dating website with their professionally made pics.

On the whole, you have a great forum and websites.

Winston, just want to follow up to my not so serious post above, and say that I'm truly grateful that you made this website. This is definitely one of the best forums I've ever been on. I also love how on your website you succinctly summarize what makes dating so different in other countries. How an average guy can go from living in a relative nightmare, to finally discovering the respect from women that he never even knew existed. Thanks Winston.
It is a pleasure to read whatever you write about the subject of foreign women and domestic womyn. You have definitely put a lot of thought into the subject.

The forum is great, because it abounds with practical knowledge. And despite being a forum that places little value on political correctness, it is one of the most civil forums I have ever come across. The members here are intelligent, and offer lively discussions and debates. There is very little pretentiousness on this forum. No one is trying to come across as some sort of G-Dog macdaddy, international playboy lifestyle extraordinaire. There are just sensible, real people posting on this forum. I have read lots of golden posts from the members.

Overall this forum has really helped push me in the right direction to getting a life happier abroad, and for that I am grateful.
