The one thing i forgot to add in my response to DJ4 was the difference in the dating websites, assuming it really means something. I have 30+ younglins waiting for me in Vietnam, and i'm adding about 1 or 2 more per day, while the response on Colombian Cupid has been ZERO, there is no comparison.
Strange. I have been on Colombian Cupid and I got a decent amount of interest there. Did you really get NO responses at all on CC? The Colombianas (and latinas in general) do seem a lot pickier than the Filipinas though. On FC I got like 50 interests in one day, although the women on CC were more attractive (at least according to my tastes). The only latinas who don't seem to be as picky are the Dominicanas on Dominican Cupid, but many of those are scammers.
Well, i signed up over a week ago, and six women have looked at my profile, with no interests, no emails, nothing. Note that i have favorited and shown interest in about a dozen of them, so i'm not just there waiting to be hit on.
I think this site specifically caters to chicks looking for the young or well-off blue eyed type of guy. Again, that contrasts with what i see on the street, with most holding hands with browner, thuggy/dorky/scrawny type of guys. I think i'm kind of stuck in some kind of uncanny valley between these two Lol.
Anyhow, not to hijack the thread, but I just wanted to add one more thing to my previous post. It's not all been that bad over here, it's better than what i had in the states. At least i've gotten numbers and dated a couple cute and in shape single moms; and chicks at least dignify you with eye contact if they're not interested. There's also so many doable women you can try your luck often enough, instead of it being a 'once in a month' chance like in the states.
A small anecdote: I was even asked to dance by this decent looking 24yo girl the other night, something which is rarely seen here they tell me. But i f*cked by not following with the girl immediately afterwards, as i was intensely chatting with this hot single mom from Cali I had met the previous day. But this Cali lady ended up flaking over whatsapp anyways (as in sudden-total-silence). So yeah I messed up this one, my fault.
Even though your ego takes a hit after being turned-down/flaked-on several times, like Winston says AT LEAST YOU'RE IN THE GAME, at least you can play some hands on it.
My only complain is that they're generally not really flirtatious, as in other continents (or as the myths about this region suggest) and it's going to take me a substantial amount of time to break through. I'm still pondering whether it's worth it.
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
