I thought if I wanted to be with someone here in the US I'd have to settle for fat and/or retarded.So I stayed single and just settled on counting my days.
Society needs to cultivate strong characters with convictions not conformist drones.
Without contrary opinions to the popularly accepted ones people aren't given a choice." - "When I first stumbled across Happier Abroad, I thought this website was full of nonsense.
Winston Wu speaks the truth and because people cannot counterattack his statements they attack his character like shameless lawyers.
Because of my experience living in Costa Rica for four months in 2010 I found Winston to be a preacher of enlightenment and truth." - I love your philosophical Wisdom.
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...
Obviously, I'm not doing too well where I am, so going abroad is a good option for me, and one that I'm interested in doing eventually." - Ghost"Winston, thank you so much for making this website and this forum. I knew something was wrong with the women in America (go after the wrong men, turn down nice guys, etc) and things in America before I discovered your website.
When I discovered your website and read things, the problems were confirmed...
Your story resonates with me on every key level you discuss: your faith and spirituality, your height (I'm a shade under 5'6"), and the social and cultural differences between Americans (especially women), and other countries." - Rob"Kudos for having the courage to say what no one else is willing or aware enough to say. and all I can say is you said everything that I have felt and thought. For example, the Dominican Republic and Mexico to name a couple. I just have to say you hit it on the nail with everything you said. We're in the same boat..." - Kenny"As a foreign student living in the US, I love this website. (including the chairman winston) for me I would say there are everybody here (all races, all ages even gender). It is amazing it is marvelous, C'est magnifique "I love this website because I can tell that the most of the people on here are smarter and more knowledgeable then me.
