    Its the culture here.

    First thing tomorrow morning I'm hiring a collection agency to track down all my lovers and charge them a "loss of youth" fee. I knew my ship would come in someday.

    And honestly, given the culture here as the other posters have mentioned, I'm not surprised. Pretty women have their pick of men here--go to a bar (or come I'll take you) and men will tell you what they own and what kind of lifestyle they can give you.

    If you're a guy women will tell you what is the lifestyle they expect--if you cannot afford, do not play--you're too poor to run with the big dogs.


    Sorry, I dont know what youre talking about. While my time in Hk was brief (2 years). I never had problems meeting hott girls at the clubs. I didnt have to flaunt money or tell them how much I make ect. SO, I am really flustered at what you are talking about.

    Granted there are alot of women who are materialistic in HK. There are also MANY who are not. And i never had any problems meeting them.

    I agree with you that there are alot of guys in HK that likes to brag about how much they make and about what car they drive. But you know what?...I laugh at those guys. I think they need to brag to booast their self esteem and ego because they have nothing else to offer the ladies. Plus, I think bragging about your bank account is quite low class.

    I can't believe this thread. I totally agree with Gizmo. THIS IS A JOKE!
    And Alphaboi, why are you on this forum? Shouldn't you be doing something better with your time....maybe trying to earn more money to pay for this so called lifestyle your GF needs. Aren't you wasting valuable time? Or maybe you're on the forum for a laugh.

    You guys never hear of 3G? When I go to the US the worst thing is that there is such poor telephony service (seriously)--you can't get telephones in tunnels, underground, in subways, in elevators, etc.

    This is how I kill time in transport.

    I think this is some kind of a twisted make believe fairy tale of someone lurking behind the internet pretending to be somebody.

    "She told me she got applause from the other women in the restaurant cause she made a scene and told him she was worth more than that!

    And honestly, given the culture here as the other posters have mentioned, I'm not surprised. Pretty women have their pick of men here--go to a bar (or come I'll take you) and men will tell you what they own and what kind of lifestyle they can give you.

    If you're a guy women will tell you what is the lifestyle they expect--if you cannot afford, do not play--you're too poor to run with the big dogs."

    sorry to tell you, this kind of behavior is not cultural as you claim. to put it bluntly, from where I came from, this is called "prostitution".

    It makes me kinda depressed to even think that people could ever be so materialistic and superficial, men and women alike. It's sickening. There's so much more to life and real happiness than money and possessions.

    Sure, but how do you show your friends your experiences? How do you show that you have a better boyfriend? How is it quantifiable? You need something that is quantifiable to show that you're doing better than your girlfriends otherwise how can you justify the time spent with the guy?

    There's the idea of opportunity cost here that a lot of you are discounting. That you can do better if you made other choices...that's what you're paying for, the opportunity cost and because the other options open to women here are so great that you pay a lot.

    For the one guy that said that he did well with women, maybe he has game, or he's good looking or he has a high NPV that women are willing to invest in him. For those of us not as gifted, we do what we can to get company.

    Well, Alphaboi.. If what you're saying is allegedly true then maybe you should think about this. When you meet the right person you don't need to prove that you have the 'better' boyfriend. You just know you do because you're happy. Being happy with the person you're with is how you measure how 'good' your boyfriend is. Being bought expensive gifts, of course, is how a girl would love to be treated like a princess, but when it comes down to it the best thing a girl could be given from her boyfriend is love; and you can't buy that!

    THE-GUY has a good point, i been to hk myself and i have lots of HKnese friends, they are not like that, this alphaboi is just saying the cheap game they play among himself and his rich rat friends.

    Pay for break up fees? come on, that's for mistress! not the regular ordinary woman who loved you from her heart. so, this gf of yours basically is your mistress huh?

    I bet, men only will spend on their mistress generously, not to their wives or girlfriend at the rate of at least 3-4 yrs, and 10k USD a month

    and if you REALLY LOVE her, why don't you marry her? perhaps, you are el cheapo speedy guy who can't even afford to marry her?

    cut it off.

    Spot on!

    Alphaboi, if all of this is true, which I highly doubt, then you live within a really sad social circle. One should surround oneself with people who make one feel supported, confident and accepted. Where when things go bad, you know that you have people who have got your back and who will hold you up. In your case, your gf and your so call friends can't run away from you fast enough before first trampling all over you.

    To tell you the truth, my husband is a poor as they come. But I love him just the same. Sure, it would be nice if he was, say, a rich doctor. But I know that's not going to happen... even in my wildest of dreams. I don't go around comparing my husband to the boyfriends and husbands of other women. The only thing that is quantifiable about my man is something that has absolutely nothing to do with wealth (or his ability to pretend he has wealth).
