I'll start by saying that it's kind of hard to take your video seriously.
With that said... I'll give you a serious reply.
1. Stop giving free money to women. Not to mention it was foolish to throw money at seedy websites, but it also shows that your value is just that- you have to give up your own value to even be worth something. That's not what you want.
2. The women you see on seedy websites that ask for money probably have fake women. Not the pictures that is, but the profiles, etc are just women's profiles made by men behind a computer. They just want your money, and yes you get screwed when you play with them.
3. You mentioned part of the reason you have no luck with women is because you are overweight. So you realize- do something about it. Not going to fat shame you; there is nothing wrong with being you- if you like who you are... if you see a problem however... you do something about it.
...
4... You've set yourself up for more ridicule by uploading this video and posting here. I don't know you as an individual... neither do almost all of us but we have our own opinions and we judge people based on our own standards and you are setting yourself up to seriously be eaten by the sharks.
5. You should make friends with people who are successful in the areas you want to be successful in- this will help you.

I hope things work for you. Stop throwing money to obviously seedy websites.

Although it is fake, I had fun setting up the story and creating a theme for it. 


Yes, it is just performance art!  :)

Funny I always see guys like him have girlfriends or wives in Thailand so I guess no one gets scammed there either  :rolleyes:

Countries where women generally date guys who are their equals on the age/attractiveness scale are the least likely places for scams. Places where people like you think 'why is that old, bald, fat guy going out with an attractive woman?' are the most.

kudos for the good acting though tomoakleaf.

Who are these guys? The Hairy Bikers of Chinese culture.

Yes, they are really great youtubers who are based in the South of China and have been making content about Chinese culture for many years now.  They have also produced some documentaries about travel in China.  They are highly respected by new and old expats alike.  You should check them out!  They are just like any popular youtuber in Korea but based in China.

Ummm... if you'd even hinted that you had any idea who the hairy bikers are, you might have persuaded me.

Exactly..I was left thinking if they were actors or not.  So I just put my own version together. D:

If you guys want women, you should learn pickup - it's very helpful. also, you should read these 3 books:
  • The rational male
  • Models by mark manson
  • the way of the superior man
