Welcome back zboy1. We missed you. How is China? Anything improve there? We always talk about the negatives here, but never the positives.

How is your relationship going? Do you wanna talk about it or is it confidential?
It's going well, Winston. We're thinking whether to have a child or not, but honestly, I don't really want to bring a child into this world. The world is kinda fu*ked up now, so we'll wait and see.

Chinese mainland girls are way better than American women, hands down! From what my younger brother has told me, and what HA members that have returned to the States have said, American women have gotten worse than before (if that's even possible).

I'm about to get my U.S. teachers license so that means I can teach at any international school out here in Asia. I'm already doing so but this certification means my paycheck will double in the future.

I've enjoyed China but the recent crackdowns and closing up of China has me a bit worried. I'm looking to teach at an international school in Korea, Taiwan or Japan for a change of pace.

This whole Covid situation is unfortunate, moreso that I haven't been able to travel outside of China in a while. I do miss visiting other parts of Asia. I have traveled a fair bit inside China, though.
Can your wife move abroad with you? Well no place is perfect, but the thing is, SE Asia is a lot more fun and open, but the pay there is gonna be a lot less. There's tradeoffs.

What about Shanghai? I would imagine that the regulation there is less, because it's a major business hub so they wouldn't want to interfere with it.

If you went to NE Asia I think Japan would be the most interesting culture but it's also very repressed and expensive. Korea may mistreat people from what I heard. And Taiwan is just too empty and soulless and has a very shallow vibe that doesn't resonate with your soul if you're not shallow too.

Is your wife not very materialistic or demanding? Or is she different in private? I heard that in public, men are the boss in China but in private women are the boss. Is that true?

Hi @zboy1

Welcome back to the forum! I, too, have timidly started to post here again. Mainly out of boredom...or, who knows, maybe because you can take a man off HA but you can't take HA off the man! :D

@Winston these are the kinds of posters whose return (or permanence) you should be cherishing.

True. I cherish him and you. However keep in mind that zboy1 has a job and a wife to take care of, so he doesn't have much time to be here. So we are lucky that he is posting at all. Most working people who have a wife don't have time for forums.

I don't think you are here out of boredom. Probably because you resonate with it and enjoy the freedom to speak your mind which you cannot do on most forums.

Let's say that keeping HA so open to any kind of contribution, from deep philosophical discussions on the origins of spirituality to "professional" trolling, is one of the reasons why nobody feels intimidated about posting here. No topic too dense or too light, no judgment passed, no matter how controversial and "nutty" every and each post might sound. Be it 5 times a day or once a year, anybody can check in and add their 2 cents to the pot.

This is, quite honestly, something harder and harder to find anywhere on what's left of the "free" (i.e. non-monetisable) Internet.
