I came across well-written books by academics, such as "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" and "The Narcissism Epidemic" (thanks, Steve Nesse!
It's one of those things you have to experience to fully understand." - Jack"I blamed myself for my lack of success with American women.
So, I worked hard for many years to improve myself...
There are many who perhaps feel this too but live in quiet desperation." - dreaux"When I finally found this site, where everything I was feeling was so well elucidated and free from all the extraneous BS that some of the other sites harbored, it made me feel much stronger in my position that all was not well in this society, and I finally received affirmation that I was not "crazy" to feel this way... foreign women it is just sooo much better to meet them, they are easy-going, date them and have sex too... To say that it was INSTRUMENTAL in my choice to not give up on women entirely, but rather to look abroad for women of quality would be an understatement... I have lived abroad and seen the difference in my social life, in how it made me feel inside; and I've also seen the antisocial lame-ass dating scene in the US, and how it undermines a man's confidence and inhibits his ability to simply be himself.
I'd also like to thank Winston and all of you who speak so freely about things that most people do not want to hear... I certainly attribute much of my "awareness" to all the golden nuggets of information on your site." - Aware"Okay so i have read all the way through the book happier abroad. it was very very hard to find any flaws on the information on american society and american women in general it is just super duper accurate i would have to say 98 % accurate. he hit the nail on the head about the women in america being unapproachable, anti-social, unfriendly male hating bitches. It is an absolute shame, and no man should have to live that way... You're doing a service to all American guys by exposing the limited possibilities for happiness and social connection in the US." - Merc"I've never been to the Philippines, Winston, but after spending a month in Thailand I'm willing to believe everything you say about it...
His writing was a home run for me, it's the kind of stuff where if you repeat it here in the USA, people will think that you're crazy.
Winston wasn't trying to change you to be a PUA like other guys try to do.
I think I found it from a website search on how messed up the American dating scene is.
I just want to say what a Godsend this site is, because for the longest time I had no hope.
After finding this site and realizing that there are a whole world of options, I have regained hope and a will to find the right woman for me." - Simoun"I've been interested in the idea of going to date and possibly marry abroad for several months, but I have only recently started reading this site. It captures perfectly what is wrong with society here in the U. and shows what human beings need to be healthy and function and thrive.
Social connection and inclusiveness and romantic relationships and sex are what I've always lacked in my life.
Society needs to cultivate strong characters with convictions not conformist drones.
