The Cupid sites have some good ladies on. I also had good luck with wechat and Skout (mobile apps) but they're only really useful if you're actually in Asia. Plus it's really pot luck as to what the girl is like when you finally meet IRL.

Remember if you're a younger dude there are loads of Chinese girls studying overseas.

What is "young" I'm 28 so maybe I could pull it off still?

And are you suggesting I hit on the girls who are studying here?

I did that once, with a Korean girl...my god she was a bitch....


But you have a point, it's better then no dates, I might have to figure out how to make it work.

Not sure how well this works but I saw this tip on another forum.

Offer them money. If they accept, ditch them. If not, proceed but still be cautious.

With a webcam.

Don't give them any real info until they talk to you on a webcam.

Maybe, but I think it would put me off them if they accepted.

I'm very wary of profiles with a solitary photo and the ones that are written to a very high standard of English. I came across one on a Filipina site the other day and it was just too perfectly written. Stark contrast to the usual profiles where spelling mistakes are common and the grammar isn't the best. It seemed like it was created by some upper class middle aged woman. Had to be a cut and paste job.

sure, but i was more talking about non pros who you have now made think you are looking for pros


you are going to burn a bridge with half (or more) of the non pros you chat with if you offer them money

better to politely ask if they go with guys for money, doing that will only burn a bridge with 5%ish, most will respect the fact that you are trying to weed out pros

I do something similar about money.
I told them from my first messages that I am disappointed from the majority of girls, because in one way or another they ask for money.
Guess what...
Most of them, never continue the discussion.
Maybe a few feel offended, but it is the minority I think.
In any case, I have spent months talking with a girl, just to find out that indirectly hinting for money...so I don't have time to waste...
At least, the girls that remain in our talks, know that I have hard line about money...

In many countries, very poorly live. What should this test show? That a girl from the Ukrainian ghetto needs money? This is so obvious, it seems to me.

Quite an interesting tactic. Have you seen these girls personally?
