The sound of one hand clapping: Years later and a lot of the women I've met on home turf have increased/decreased their interest in me based upon how much money I have/how much I'm willing to spend on them. I now figure that I might as well start looking to these countries. I'm an average looking guy with not a whole lot of money. Girls back home make no effort with me whatsoever. Most wont even consider me because I don't make enough money. And no, it's not looks. I'm average looking and I try for average looking girls. I'm no fool and I don't expect to snag a model.
The One True TheDavid: You sound rich. And smug.
The One True TheDavid: He's (presumably) an American guy who's been dating (presumably) American women. What planet are you from where men are not expected to buy female company one way or another? "You get what you pay for" and "beggars can't be choosy." (In a famine fresh road-kill is a blessing.)One good thing about women from impoverished countries, especially "illegals," is that to them I seem pretty well off. Till they're around long enough to get a feel for the country and realize that "comfortably middle class" in a village in Michoacan or Mindanao is dirt poor in Lexington, KY.
The sound of one hand clapping: Mr Guy: The sound of one hand clapping: Years later and a lot of the women I've met on home turf have increased/decreased their interest in me based upon how much money I have/how much I'm willing to spend on them.

If they won't consider you because you're broke, consider what you're doing that even makes that an issue. Some people are broke, and some people just don't have much money. Women tend to reject the former, and be okay with the latter. If you're an average looking guy who can make a girl laugh and carry on an intelligent conversation, I reject the premise that women are able to deduce your bank statement without you exhibiting defensive behavior or obvious bad choices.I'm not broke, just not much above minimum wage. I'm working on that situation everyday by trying to get a better job but right now I remain on a low income (For full disclosure, I make something like £14K per year, not sure what that is in $ but it's pretty low). I'm really happy with my life, other than that and have never been known to complain about being poor.And yes, women will date me. But after a while they figure out that I don't have a whole lot of money. I get that women want a guy who can provide for them and afford for them to have kids, a house, a car and a few occasional luxuries. It's just makes it kind of sucky when you aren't one of those guys. I thought I'd be able to find someone who'd accept that I was never going to be making the big bucks but perhaps not./I also realize that I've probably had bad ...
The sound of one hand clapping: I figure if I'm going to get taken for a ride, might as well be by someone more attractive than me who will at least make an effort for a while before leaving. The end result will be the same either way, but at least I get more out of the bargain that way.
Infernalist: About 8 years ago, I had a friend fall for a Russian woman that he'd met online. He excitedly told me about how she was so into him, etc etc etc...He was something of an introvert, so this was good for him and very very bad for him at the same time.She started asking for money. I told him to be nice, but politely let her know that he couldn't afford to send her stuff or buy her anything.She broke up with him the next day. He was astounded at how quick she turned on him when he didn't turn over the cash.
