Yeah of course for the plebs. Bu you know I am often doing 1+ month in each neighborhood / city these days. AirBnB is my choice in that case. If I super loved a place and wanted a 6+ month contract then I would do the old fashion door-to-door or scouring Facebook but honestly every place wants to make me want to kill myself after 3 months (the world is so boring for a seasoned traveler).

RE: The Philippines thread
If you're comparing Manila and Taipei, then I'll tell you now Taipei is more expensive probably by about 33-50%. Rent is probably that percentage more over there, local street meals are $3-4 in Taipei vs. $1-2 in Manila. Sit down meals are about 50% more unless you're going for steak or something like that. Cigarettes and beer are also double in Taipei. Nightlife, I think expense is kind of a wash. Some clubs will be more expensive than others in both cities.

Taxis are a LOT more expensive in Taipei BUT trains are so efficient there that you really only need to use taxis in the graveyard hours. Point is that Taipei is not the city for a shoe-string budget or a backpacker. But, for those looking for cheaper and equally or more efficient cities versus the west or Tokyo/Hong Kong, that's a good spot.

Back to the subject at hand. I think I'm playing the role of optimist in this thread or at least a reminder of where you guys originally came from. I still maintain for guys that may not have seen the "glory days" that the Philippines can be a great place to experience WGF. Most that read this thread probably know my experiences by now over there. You still get more girls at least interested/curious with you than anywhere else I've been. Just may have to fight harder for the top tier now. Like I said though, it's not like girls were never pulling stuff back in the day or the same rules about not being a sap didn't apply. Also, one of my best friends is married to a French broad and he even says French women can be really bitchy lol.

As far back as I could remember, I always wanted to be a player.

Damn, I was kind of hoping prices were similar.

I'll admit I do get more interest here than in the West. BUT if that interest goes nowhere with quality women in a reasonable time frame, then Phils becomes comparable to Vietnam, Taiwan, and other places where long term stay is key to getting quality. Places that have other upsides regarding quality of life (but may or may not be cheaper).

I'm probably exaggerating with WDF, but there may be a there there, at least in regards to the higher quality. And as the other forum member stated, those single moms leave a psychological impact, especially now that information travels basically instantaneously via social media. And if we are not at WDF yet, we are most likely heading there considering the behavior of young Westerners in the Phils, and the impacts of that behavior.

RE: The Philippines thread
Taiwan I am able to get 5 dates a week if I want to. And some ONS. But still haven't met any women who wanted a FWB relationship (where I get to fuck them at least 3x a week). Constantly finding new dates and courting is exhausting. But then on social media I see guys playing it "easy mode" with Filipinas but I don't know how easy it will be until I try it there myself.

To be brutally honest if I was a monk / celibate then I probably wouldn't consider Philippines and would be deciding between Georgia and Taiwan.

Oldest was 32 and youngest was 19.

I think Taiwanese women are semi-ok with a age gap. Not Philippines style of a 80 year old with a 18 year old. But in Ximend I saw some western dudes who were noticeably older (50+) with women who were probably in their early 30s.

RE: The Philippines thread
Ok 1st of all BaatumMania, it's time to stop mentally masturbating and get on the next flight to Manila. AirAsia is <100 USD 1 way from Taipei, you should know this if you really are based in Taipei. I'm sure you can leave Taipei for a week.

Now on to the main points..

On prices: Taipei on general is about 20% higher IMO. Now we are going to get into lifestyle specifics, but I did Manila on 2K USD and am currently doing Taipei on 2K USD. It can be done.

On food: I don't do street food in Manila, PH is not Thailand. Whoever is eating street food in Manila is broke, ignorant or likes playing Russian Roulette. I paid ~$5-7 USD per meal on average in Manila in sit down places and am paying the same in Taipei. Street food in Taipei will add up to about the same if you have a larger appetite(do you lift bro).

On transportation: Cabs/Uber are slightly more expensive in Taipei, but we are talking about $1-2 USD differences for non Manila traffic.

On housing: Taipei will be more expensive for the same standard in Manila. I'd put it at about $250-300 USD more. I Gramercy'ed my way thru Manila for 800 USD and in Taipei I'm looking at about 1100 USD for the same standard.

On nightlife: Per order drinks are more expensive in Taipei about 10%. However, the places in Manila you will want to go(Revel, Okada) aren't going to be cheap. Taipei has a few places that are all you can drink(shitty drinks but you didn't go there for the drinks right bro?) so it has the ability to be potentially cheaper.

Go to PH for English speakers and women. For everything else Thailand kills PH.

And Mentavious is right, just got back from W Hotel Taipei's rooftop bar. That place is awesome.

RE: The Philippines thread
I find drinking in Taipei to be cheaper than in Manila if you go clubbing - it's more than just a few clubs that have all you can drink, it's almost the standard in Taipei for all the known clubs.

Manila street food is awful - Taipei's is much better. For local sitdown cuisine, Manila might have the worst local cuisine I've ever had, Taiwan's is nothing special but it's eatable. For non-local restaurants I have to say Manila easily beats Taipei. I think Manila actually has decent western style stuff, and their Asian cuisines are just as good as Taipei's - and more importantly it is cheaper in Manila while it is very pricey to eat exotic meals in Taipei. (basically western prices)

Taipei is cheap if you want to literally just be in the center of the city, but you're not going to have any room or a kitchen - Manila is much more spacious for sure for expats in terms of housing. However, one thing I absolutely hate is how so many places have receptions that make girls check in and stuff - it's weird as hell, Taipei is not big on the whole hotel/condo thing so that level of privacy I respect.



As for women - depends on what you want. I think Taiwanese women look better, but Manila has no language barrier and will be easier - however, shifting through transgenders is a waste of time if you're on online dating, and if you're new to Manila you're going to end up at clubs filled with hookers probably. For basic social circle Manila is better because it's easier to connect with people as they are the most western Asian society (but not so Western they act like Americans, they understand the culture though) - for straight up clubbing I'd take Taipei, it's just more chill for me.



I think it's easy to get laid in both - but Manila is more budget friendly.

How accessible are girls like this in Phils these days for the average foreigner? This girl has a Pinoy bf, and seems to prefer them. 5-10 years ago she'd easily have a male model Chad white boyfriend or black boyfriend.

Are Pinays starting to prefer their own men over foreigners?

RE: The Philippines thread
She is far from typical Filipina.

And hard to answer your question since the answer depends on so many things :
- What city is she living in / what is her social status in PH society / wealth of her family / what is her age / do she have kids already or not / what are her previous experiences with foreigners / if you are black how attracted or afraid she is about it / etc.
Then : how old you are / apart from your game/age - how nice-funny and rather fit/good looking you are / etc.

Probably difficult. But your question depends on too many aspects so it's difficult to answer.

Not 'starting'. They have been for years. Too many degenerates flooding into Asia have ruined it, sadly.

Honestly, there are very few girls in the Philippines with that kind of face (plenty just as pretty but not that specific look, she looks more East Asian to me) and very few with that kind of body. In the years that I've spent in the Philippines, I don't think I've ever seen a woman with both a comparable body and face to her.

And she's too well fed/developed.

Maybe you can find a girl like that at UP or Ateneo. Maybe. But she has options, her social media inboxes are full, a 2 week vacation chump isn't getting anywhere near that.

Unless she's into the party scene, then possibly, but you're going to have to bring your A Game, something like Fisto in SEA, circa 2013...and unfortunately, the confluence of events and environments that allowed the forging of that level of game, may actually never be seen again.

Higher.

Go higher.

And yeah, check out the "What is a 10" thread, the variance is crazy. It seems guys can agree on when a girl is at least a 5 or more, but anything above and more specific than that, there's zero agreement, it's just all over the place.

RE: The Philippines thread
I think this is especially true with asian girls where there is a huge variance with anything above 5. A lot of guys give +2 just for the fact of having light skin even though the face is meh. To each his own preferences and there is no consensus. For me for example m, those east asians faces are a big turn off, i noticed a lot of them have those weird shaped big pentagone/squared faces with masculine traits. No wonder why a lot of ladyboys easily pass for girls...

I don't like the big square/satellite faces either, she has a touch of that, but just a touch. That face is a 7 approaching 8 territory. Full lips, good symmetry the only thing it looks like the nose was surgically enhanced.

Not my kind of face, and yes, that touch of masculine jaw, but to say that's a 5 is harsh.
