I don't know what sites these guys were using, and maybe times have changed, but I used a Chinese dating website and everyone woman I met was exactly like their photos. And only once was I asked for money, which I declined to send. And in closing, I did marry one of the women that I had met online.
I'm glad you posted this video online as it helps certain people understand things that they don't normally look into. Sometimes the heart gets the best of you and it doesn't always make the right choices as it just focuses on its dreams and doesn't consider the other side. Again, good video.
I found a Filipino lady on Facebook. We Skype chatted for a while. She kept hitting me up for money. Finally I was contacted by a teenage girl who told me to tell my "creepy" girlfriend to stop sleeping with her dad.
Incidentally, I was contacted by a very nice woman from Vietnam. I was suspicious at first but she never asked me for money. She is my wife now and life is good.
If you want to meet Chinese girls outside of China, just go to any university campus whatsoever. I don't even mean that sarcastically. If there's a chance to meet and talk with strangers (mensa etc.), just use it. Since I'm mostly "focussed" on Japan and Korea and basically living in Osaka, my experiences with Chinese people are limited, but I've met one of the prettiest and cutest girls ever to enter my life that way, from Foshan. Sadly time was far too limited since she had to leave a few days later, but I can't wait to see her again one day! Now she's a real-life porcelain doll, but of course she thinks she's fat... Anyway, who needs dating sites? If you're seriously looking for a Chinese girlfriend (and under let's say 35 years old), check out your nearest university/college I'd say.
Still never been to China nor Taiwan, but that's waiting for me somewhere in the future. Love your videos, guys.
Sad story: Dutch Man flies to China and waits 10 days in airport for online girlfriend who never shows. 41-year-old Alexander Pieter Cirk flew to Hunan Province's Changsha Huanghua International Airport from Holland in the hopes of meeting his 26-year-old love interest.
AsiaCharm is a good scam site, I made a little fake profile just to see what kind of girls they have, all super models and, and all the profiles are fake and made by the same person seems like, soon as you post a picture the automated post start purring in and the automated message were the same, leave the site for 40 minutes and come back and you'll get the same automated msg saying the same thing over like there server can't keep up with what they sent you the last time you was there, you can tell the super models they have on there would have no reason to be on a dating site, and they want you to pay money for every single fake msg and if your stupid enough to give your card account to think your going to chat with one of them they charge your account while your not online just the msg you got from there server... I never gave a card number I did research online before making a account I just wanted to look at the girls, but very easy to tell thats a scam site.
You've got that right. Some Asian people don't know how to be honest. Buyer of a hard-up lover beware. They will say anything, do anything because they are so pathetic that nobody really wants them. And the dating sites - a bunch of blithering idiots who will sell their underwear for a price. To the fools stupid enough to give these assholes their hard-earned dollars. 诈骗
I would simply argue to not date anybody that you don't know in person. It's very, very rare, especially when trying to reach out to a country on the other side of the world, that even if you DO find a real person, the likelihood of things working out ANYWAY are slim to none. Seriously, what do you plan on doing? Bringing them home? Getting them citizenship in your country? Or, you really expect to get citizenship in theirs? Get real, even actually married people can't get citizenship for their spouses. I mean, even in the US, my own country, I've run into a similar problem. I met a guy online, who turned out to be totally real and exactly who he said he was, we started seeing each other (which was expensive as hell since we lived on opposite sides of the country and had to pay airfare every time we had a date), and we had a good relationship, but in the long run it didn't work out because we lived on opposite sides of the country and we couldn't ever move to be with each other because both of our jobs required us to be apart. We're still friends, but definitely had to call it quits on a relationship, and that's just the distance from one end of a country to the other, I cannot imagine the stress of trying to make things work with someone on another continent! Sure, scams are a problem, but even if it is honest, it's still not likely going to work. Even if by some miracle you DID manage to move to China to be with your Chinese girlfriend, what happens when you run into the same problem every other foreigner eventually runs into with their Chinese girlfriend and their family forces you to break up? You really want to put her through being disowned by her family just to be with her? Even if you did manage it, what would that mean for your relationship? With how divorce rates are for foreign spouses, the chances of things working out become even slimmer! All in all, no matter how exciting it may sound to date an exotic, beautiful, foreign woman, it's probably not going to work out, every odd in the deck is stacked against you, and even for those lucky enough to have managed to stay married to their Chinese wives (like these guys), they still have to walk on eggshells every day to stay with them between consistent pressure from the government, as well as pressure from their families. It's a never-ending struggle, so really think about what you're doing and take it from somebody who has been there.
Most men don't have swag. Most men don't have game. These guys believe everything that comes out of a woman's mouth. I don't like guys like this. They are the primary suckers for these women. First, always talk so you can hear their voice. Don't go pass the second online chat or date without skyping or having facetime. From then on, always talk thru skype of other facetime apps. Have good conversation and ask meaningful questions. Always vett her...ALWAYS. That's if you know what you're doing, but most men don't. They are too busy with their heads up their butts and so excited this woman is even talking to them. I have never been scammed because I don't overvalue women and what they say. Like I said, I have NEVER been scammed. Some have tried, but they all failed and they were the ones who stopped the communication because they were caught. Even the ones who did facetime. Be smart. Take your time and put ice in your sack to cool your lust if you're that horny.
My brother Shane who is mentally Handicapped thinks outside the box. His brain is of a 5th grade IQ & so he will never understand what Asian scammers are about. He messaged me on Facebook & told me that I didn't know what I was talking about but, I absolutely do know. I Loved the video! It was so funny & so true!
A lot of these girls are just looking for money. If you meet a girl on one of these sites and she asks for money NEVER send it no matter what her story is. If she is just as cool she may be real, if she gets an attitude or stops chatting with you on a regular basis then you need to block her quick and move on.
If you are spending money, it's probably better to be doing it with a travel agency instead. A lot of them sell bride searching tours to places like Vietnam and Rusia. At least that way you are meeting potential mail order brides face to face before you try starting a relationship.
Although I think mail order bride marriages usually end in divorce.
Myself personally I would spend all of my annual vacation days on vacations in the country you want to meet someone. And after you meet someone in person then start an online relationship and go from there.
ALL ARE NOT SCAMS!!! I used a FILIPINA dating site back in 2013. "ASIA CHARMS" (not sure) "fell in love" with a pic, sent a msg., got a reply and BINGO. We been married almost 5 years now. She my 4th and by far BEST wife (or gf) I've ever had. She was 25 and me 72 then. I gave up on MURCAN GOLD DIGGIN HOES after 10 yrs. "in the hunt".
Call them desperate and dumb, but the older a guy gets the more unattractive he becomes on the dating scene. Women only want mature men for one reason. I would of fell for a Oriental dating site too if I had more money! Thanks for the upload guys
They can fake skype chat also. I experienced it about 5 or more years ago. They often stream from say for example one of those sites where a girl is posing herself and will do more for money. For the gullible you'll soon enough realise that they don't talk (because obviously it won't make any sense) and the mystery will be solved quickest simply by putting a photo through Google images. More than likely multiple results will appear at that time
Am i the only one who is totally and utterly scared shitless of going to a place like this? everywhere you look is misfortune and discomfort, people being forced to do shit they dont want to do for money, it's so distressing and what's more is as a foreigner with limited resources, what can you really do to help? god it's so frightening
I lived in Fredricton NB Canada for 4 years. There was a man in my neighbourhood that married a woman from the Philippines and was murdered . His 'wife' arranged the whole thing. Be careful out there .
Get them on skype. Never ever send money. Think, they got by before you came along. If you aren’t moving to China as serpentza and C-Milk did then find asian women through a dating site in your country and research with due diligence. They know how to photoshop.
If there's a trend I see in those comments, it's that most of the people having had success with these dating sites is from the 2010-2013 period. Have to consider the changes in the market and business model, i'd wager the success rate today is much lower. Just because it worked out for someone else, doesn't mean the times are still favourable for it working for you
Another site called Asia Charm is a scam too. In order to get any personal information of a Chinese lady one must purchase TOKENS to chat with them. The man must spend the equivalent of $500 worth of TOKENS to reach their PRE-SET amount that must be paid BEFORE they allow you to view their personal info. What is their personal info? Should be their cell phone and email address. Sounds simple right? NOPE! The lady that I was interested in NEVER had her cell phone listed in her personal info. And guess what? Her email address was one from the national Chinese QQ email. The Chinese government censors this private public email flat form on individuals private messages. Mine was flagged "inappropriate and sensitive" content when I only included my home address, my cell number, etc... asked her for same info. QQ email indicated that it did NOT deliver my emails that had any personal info of mine to her. Doing a search on the web reveled that the Chinese government does censor QQ emails and their content. So in the end I never got this lady's cell phone number, never got her address or alternative email either. Its a TOTAL SCAM, Asia Charm is a SCAM!
I trying a china dating site and met a few real beatififul women with nice body’s.. you got to be smart because they are real women mex in the site. You only pick girl who have visited you profile. The fakes will not not everyday too much work. And the real girls are looking at profiles. Then check if they chat a message or mail you, or even like you. Watch they will call you by name. Watch how real they massage is. Then you write to them. Ask for new few picture every day and about there life and who there family and friend. Mine who me here picture of a family visit and family picture and sites where. I can search if this is true of what she saying. Yes that town is famous for that and it’s just as that far as her profile tell where she lives. I am constantly tell her to show me she real. And she try hard to do it. The problem is the visa they can only come here as a tourist or school visa or business not love. Because if you lies and want a green card from the same destination later it will be denied because you lied . So I match my matches to the very young student who like me and tell them about the student exchange that the most visa program and allow 2 yr visa stay. All good but the site is too expensive. Left But are still in contact with 2
Holly Crap That's Bullshit with all the Photo Shop marketing BS , So many poor Bastards I have seen invest up to 30-K before he found out is was a sham. This was the Ukraine specifically , Not China. Id assume it's the same thing everywhere basically... Just more so these locations
Yeah there are really desperated germans here^^ There is even a show in the tv were they get wifes from east europe or asia (mostly thai). German man have average money that are not average in this countrys so they have at least this advantage and they are not attractiv here.
I must say, I love your bikes. I have some experience from online dating, but no one have ever asked me for money and I would never send money to a stranger that I've never met. I'm happily married to a Chinese woman, that I actually met online. It was her cousin that put out a personal add for her and I met the cousin before I went to China to meet with the woman that later became my wife.
And a last thing.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
I did this... Worked out great... We both could not be happier.... Have a new baby... Life is good...
She didn't ask for any money .. I did not offer....she did not come on too strong.. "I love you " bullshit... I did not either...
Treat it more like a business arrangement... Work out what is in it for both of you.. Long term
Ask about goals and ambitions... Yes skype... Jump on a plane go over for a look...yep avoid the Barbie looking ones..
Even if they are real show ponies are expensive to keep...and if you are fat bald and ugly with the personality of an oyster with bad hygiene do not expect a perfect woman to fall in love with you...
I met my wife on "My Foreign Bride. Com. Married 13 years. Not all sites are scams. I paid $49.95 for 1 year. Shut account down after 2 weeks due to too many responses. I was 51 at the time and most were hotties under 25. I married at 52 and my wife was 26. All thanks to the dating site. Things may have changed now, though
you need to make multiple visits to her country or live there for an extended time while working. a lot of it is fake but a lot is not. there are many more that are looking for love just like these guys. online dating in usa is full of scams too and fake profiles too or any other country. comes with the territory. just be careful.
I’m planning on visiting China sometime next year and I thought it would be cool to have a few locals to meet up with when I get there. Is there a legit way to meet friends online? I’m not looking for a love connection just like minded people to hang out with while I’m in the country.
.. I found a beautiful Chinese Christian girl on a Chinese dating site .. She fell totally in love with me but I broke her heart .. I thought about going for it for awhile, but changed my mind at the last minute in favor of a Filippina girl who is my angel and love of my life who I also met online
In some of those Before pictures, the woman is quite hot, but the after picture has them looking so different. And I'm noticing that the shape of noses and such are being shifted to look like a specific race. Maybe Chinese? And shifted away from looking Thai or some other race. So I definitely see some internalized racism at play here.
If something seems too good, it's likely that. If you are an old man in late 50 and being contacted by someone who looks like a supermodel, is 21 years old, has a university education as a doctor, it is certainly not true anything she writes.
Either she want money for tickets / doctors etc etc or so it's the dating page that wants you to pay for each letter you write to her and every letter you want to read.
If you find a woman take a vacation and meet her in person
It always Amazing me how a guy cant seem to know he should always talk with a girl on Skype if your interested in her. If i dont see her in Video chat within the first 2 or 3 chats, im done with that girl;, its just common sence
This makes me sad, truthfully, I think I was cat fished for a long time. I figured my little relationship was likely a man with some nice pictures. Of coarse she needed to pay her rent and her mother got sick and needed medical...
It's over, but it left me embarrassed.
My experience was the complete opposite. I had done a lot of online dating in Canada, before logging on to an Asian dating site. At the time, the site said you must pay in order to write messages, but you didn't actually have to. (Bugs in their HTML!)
I corresponded with a dozen Chinese women. None of them asked for money. The ones I video-chatted with, looked like their profile pictures. I eventually decided I was "up for an adventure," so I travelled to China to meet the woman who is now my wife. However, before I left, I had a Plan B and a Plan C.
One thing I noticed was a statistically unlikely number of women from Nanning. Perhaps that indicates scammers. Oddly, my wife has visited Nanning, which is nowhere close to where she lived.
Good video and valuable advice. Also like the drone views from above while you guys are riding. Only thing I don't like is when you pull around and place yourself in front of a car already stopped at a traffic light.
Dude, 50% of White guys who date Asian girls don't even respect Asian men, and won't even make an effort to make Asian male friends. This is coming from a guy with experience with other expats and Chinese people, while living in China. Half of your audience is made up of losers and you should be aware of it.
