Discuss culture, living, traveling, relocating, dating or anything related to the Asian countries - China, The Philippines, Thailand, etc.
I think that Filipinas can't even tell the difference between a handsome white man and an average white man. One Filipina told me that I look like Ben Affleck, which is not even remotely true (I actually look more like a young Chevy Chase )
It kind of goes both ways. I notice that white guys sometimes pick the uglier asian girls that asian guys wouldn't date. I also knew this one black guy that lived in South Korea. He told me that Korean girls would mistaken him for WIll Smith..I kid you not. He looked nothing like Will Smith if anything he kind of looks like taller Gary Coleman.
What do Filipino men think of J. Lo's looks? I once dated a young woman in the Philippines who looked like J. Lo. She ended up marrying another western guy. I wonder why she couldn't find a Filipino to marry. Is it because, in the Philippines, J. Lo isn't considered hot?
It's very desirable, yes. It'll often get you in the door, at least for the women open to dating foreigners. In Philippines it can put you way over the top. It's hard to measure just how good it is in Philippines, but it's far and away a huge advantage.
Last year I took a short trip to Philippines and met this hot college student. (Keep in mind I'm ugly and over-weight, also a white guy.) We went on a date and though shy or standoffish at first, by the end of the night she went to my hotel room with me. And she kept coming back for as long as I was there. I was being a decent guy on our date and she told me about how lots of Filipino guys are brash assholes when it comes to asking her out. She later on rejected me. So in effect she used me for sex and never had any intention of anything more. I repeat: a really hot Filipina used me, an ugly and over-weight white guy, for sex.
Just remember that being white may get you in the door, but that alone will not find you a quality woman. The girl I was with was an emotionless bitch as it turned out. From the beginning I could tell something was wrong. She was just really hot with an athletic body. Hotness doesn't equal quality, though. My ideal wife candidate is pretty but not hot and has a good background including being a virgin. All this just depends on what you want. Sex is easy to get in Philippines. Good wife potential...not so much. Being a good, stable white man will go a long way, but you'll still need to put in a lot of work to find wife material.
What race is Winston Wu? Last I check his Asian and doing OK in the Philippines. Zboy1 who is visiting the Philippines is also non-white but from reading Wu report girls are approaching zboy1. In the Philippines being white does give you advantage as ghost said but it seems like you want think just being white is enough. Speak about having a having a racial superiority complex. Makes me wonder if you look down on Asians and the asians girls you want to date.
Visit South Korea or Japan ..just being white is not enough. You have to be tall, young, good looking and have some game to be good enough in those countries . China is well toss me up ..some places a white guy will do Ok other places he will struggle. Being white is not enough ..you have to character and game to really make it work.
The Philippines is different . it's more like as Ghost mentioned you can be average and get away with it but WHY? Why is it that Winston Wu who is average overweight Asian guy doing OK in the Philippines? Because of poverty in the Philippines pushes Filipina girls to seek foreign guys ..all types of foreign guys do great actually in the Philippines. It's country where they mix easy. Yes, black guys and other East Asian guys do well there. The local Filipino guys are either players or lazy from reading people reports(not sure how true this is) so there will filipinas who seek out foreign men for better whatever..and yes some just want sex.
Who knows her case? It's possible she might just prefer white guys and never gave a Filipino guy a time a day. I could be wrong but typical the looks that many Asian guys go for and this include Thai and Filipino men are the East Asian girls look (think k-pop singers or stars) very white skin preferable thin ... that's the looks from what I understand . I could be wrong.
Why is that White guys are the only ones who have to brag about their race and how superior they are? In Asia, most people, including some of the more 'normal' expats, and even some Whites and Blacks living there--hate talking about race, but in the West, it's constantly race, race, race, race!
Yohan, who is White living in Japan, says the same thing. It shows you where the real racism problem lies! Asia may be racist, but no one hammers home about it all the time--because people go on living their lives, while every time I'm back in the States, it's "Kill Whitey", I hate niggers, White power!, Black power!, I hate Mexicans and Muslims. Jeezz...
Please don't turn the conversation in 'racism' way.
It is good to hear that being 'white', adds 'attractiveness' in the eyes of filipinas.
Anybody should know, what the strong points are.
So for most western men, this is good, an advantage.
