As a young brown or black man, how were you treated and viewed in the Philippines?

Young = 25 - 45

I'm bi racial and could pass for anything between latino to middle eastern to Persian. In the west my market value is between 7-8. I'm currently in the Philippines and honestly feel like I'm getting no love. If I had to guess my market value I'd say it's between 1-3, on a good day. I don't see any ppl of my background to connect with to get some insight from, so I have no reference.

I'm not oblivious to how it is in Asia and that they prefer white, but I'm wondering how it's really like for someone who's at the other end of the spectrum. It'd be nice to hear from someone who's traveled around these parts, perhaps a backpacker, and who's dabbled in the dating scene.

Thanks in advance!

Have you ever thought of going to Hollywood and taking the place of Cliff Curtis?

Dude!! 🤣🤣🤣

Funny you mentioned him because I remember looking him up and feeling a connection when I found out that he was actually not Latino (played the role perfectly in training day).

Although we don't look similar, I am EXACTLY like him in ambiguity. Depending on where I am, I'm either Latino or Indian or middle eastern. In the Philippines I get middle eastern or Indian mostly.

So a fat nigger like @Contrarian Expatriate wouldn't fly all the way to the Asia to game western women in this day and age. But a mulatto or Muslim would. :| I'll have to retire your desperatenspook moniker. How does dirtynsexless sound? Or dumbnseedy? viewtopic.php?style=1&p=346271#p346271
