As for this guy's two-year stay in Peru, he didn't write what he was doing there. Maybe he was just a teenager or a college student back then. That means, his two years were not as routine and boring as a regular working man's life. You never know what conclusion he would come to after these two years multipliede by five.
I don't see anything "debunked" in that thread. I guess, the axiom that "you don't need explanation; just take it at face value" should prove the most debunking. But it doesn't.
Besides, I never say it's bad elsewhere. All I say is that moving abroad (or going there for dating only) is not a remedy for the social problems many of you have in America. There is no paradice on Earth for people who are challenged in one way or another, "dating-challenged" in this case.
Not true. Have you seen my comparison chart?
For every negative trait I bring up about the US, there is a positive trait abroad. Equal. It is you who are one sided.
You must be very ignorant. The guy was not talking about teenage life in general. He was talking about his two years experiencing Peruvian culture. It was obvious from the context of his letter.
He is one of many who found that he is happier abroad.
Here are more:
How do you explain all those experiences that don't fit your paradigm?
"All I say is that moving abroad (or going there for dating only) is not a remedy for the social problems many of you have in America. There is no paradice on Earth for people who are challenged in one way or another, "dating-challenged" in this case."
How the hell would you know this? You haven't dated abroad and you can't speak for others. So why do you pretend to be God? Sheesh you are really damn closed minded. No wonder you fell for Christian fundamentalism.
If it's not a remedy, then how come many have found it to be a remedy? Are they all lying? Are we all conning you? I am not the only one who found it to be a remedy. Many have. Click the testimonials button at the top of this page. And see these especially:
Read all those testimonials at the link above. How do you explain them??? HOW???
How do you know that the "dating challenged" will not do better abroad? On what basis? You have neither personal proof or scientific proof. How many guys do you know who dated abroad and regretted it?
Besides, people are "dating challenged" for different reasons. Why do you lump them all together and claim that they will be losers everywhere they go? That is so narrow and shallow. No wonder you work for the government. You are a total conformist with no independent intellectual thought.
Not all "dating challenged" are so due to defects. Some are due to race, age, height, etc. Some are great people who are nice and healthy. American dating is tough for most single guys.
You say you haven't gone out yet and approached American women, nor do you care to, so what the f**k do you know about it?
For example, my height of 5ft 7 makes me too short for women in the US, and they don't like Asian men too. But in some countries my height is not a big issue and some are more open to Asian men. So how is that not better?
You aren't making any f***ing sense.
Nor are you addressing these questions and examples.
You are a robot with very narrow views. That's why you are a Christian and government worker. Easy to program.
Free speech my ass. If you think you have free speech in America, as you claim, then I dare you to go to your government job, and tell everyone "9/11 is an inside job" or ask questions about the Twin Towers and WTC7 collapse and the speed at which they fell, and watch how fast you get fired from your job. I dare you!
Or, tell all your coworkers that you don't like how women are not feminine in America and all the double standards against men in America. Watch how fast you get fired.
Try it, if you dare, if you really think America tolerates your free speech.
Otherwise, you're all talk and not for real.
You've been debunked on every point, yet you still repeat the same stuff, like a programmed robot. Maybe you are a mind controlled shill from MK-ULTRA.
You are like a computer, who after being checkmated in chess. plays on like he hasn't lost yet.
Please address all these examples and questions.
See the letters from the Russian woman and the South African woman in the Rants and Raves section. They are far more real and intellectual than you are.
