And she does her own yard work and yours?  Wow.  Those must be some exercises.


I got her painting the house as well.  Just trying to keep her healthy and all.  ;)

Yeah, that is definitely a contrarian point of view.  You know your body better than anyone so do what works.  Do you do a lot of physical labor for work? 
Yes I do move around a lot during the day and my entire body gets plenty of movement.   
If work for me were around a desk all day, I might be doing what you are doing in terms of regimented exercise.

I'm more of a Trump'ist in this regard.  he thinks working out is a waste of finite energy.   Due to my own experience, I agree with him.  When I worked out, I was very strong and muscular, now that I've stopped for many, many years, I feel much much better.  I am full of energy, I do physical work quite a bit and outlast pretty much everybody in my age class.   I recall working out made me tired, and would impact my ability to work.     The downside is I don't look very good, and do not possess the strength I once did.   Apparently not many agree with this but that is my experience. 

Fathertime!

I think if you work physical demanding tasks in your work then no need. Since going to gym though I have realised how in the past I was quite one sided in favouring knowledge, academia if you like and often paid too little time to the gym. Time over again I would decide to commit at least an hour each week to the gym from early teens I think. Too much in this country do we get spoon fed the merits of academic study and neglect the benefits of other areas of life such as the physical or the social.

I think the gym just like the academic or social spheres has a ladder of learning. If you get up that ladder a bit benefits can be gained in real life. So it's a real area that can be explored and become skilled at with different payoff's to the academic world.

I think Trump is a good example of what BillyB talks about, a 10 on the money side so he bed not look to score highly on the physical looks side.

Think you're probably right GenMish, I've come across women who have the idea that the guy supports them financially, totally. It's what they joined the International Dating site for and is what they are after. Other reasons can be found for other women, some want out of the country they are living. A few may have other reasons to these but I think most women fall under those two headings, with being provided for, retirement plan at the top.

I presume it is not necessarily a bad idea to get whatever women up then find a girl who seems genuinely well into you and vice versa even if her original intention may not be the most noble.

While I see that finances come top it's probably not a bad thing to spend a limited amount of time down the gym to try and get a girl who doesn't feel she has to fake being into the guy or turned on just to get what she wants.

You have to go to the youtube link to see the replies...but they are interesting.
Anyway, it's a crapshoot [I've written that many times thru the years]
Regarding Chinese women in particular...Unless you really want to go to China?..and that is a real endeavor.
Also, due to modern upbringing, the Chinese would be way too secular for my interest. With older ladies there may be exceptions.
I certainly object to the expression "Shopping for a wife" so that guy in the video ---If he got burned by an Oriental gal...it was most likely  his own fault.

Paul Elam has been around a long time. The content will mostly apply to any foreign woman. (The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence syndrome.) Pay extra attention from about 5:40 on. I last listened to some of Paul's stuff about 12 years ago, but I stumbled on this link on another site, and thought I should re-post it here. Hopefully someone will think about it and maybe learn something.

Accomodation is also more expensive in Minsk than Kiev I guess as they have been catering for tourists for less time.

Have you BEEN to Minsk, Trench ?

It's pretty clear you haven't ..nor can you have read Mendy's recent info on Belarus ..   Accommodation is NOT expensive

You have a short memory Mobers, I went in September last year for a weekend. It depends what you mean by expensive, the prices will be more comaparative to a lot of European cities, a few hundred pounds for a reasonable place. Ukraine though the prices can be very cheap for a reasonable place and on that score Minsk cannot equal.

Trench, this trip of yours taught you NOTHING...

I could find studio apartments from £20

Hotels of a more than reasonable quality for £22 a night

I am beginning to wonder if you actually go to these places... given your declared income and pricing info ((

Mine was in the city centre, these are probably out a bit. Understand as a guy knew to the city I didn't wish to be stuck out in concrete block suburbs where I wouldn't know where the hell I am in terms of the context of the place.

Admittedly I went through the main providers, Booking.com and it tends to be middle men involved. I'm sure a fluent Russian speaking guy as yourself Mobe could find stuff better/easier than the rest of us not so fluent guys.

Trench,


I've stayed at the Minsk Marriott multiple times. I paid on average $80/night. Trench, you are too poor for this endeavor. If you think the cost of hotels in Belarus is comparable other cities in Europe, you are crazy. If you can't afford a great hotel at $80/night you are doomed.  People keep telling you, you need to make more than £20K  per year.


But please continue  :popcorn:

You're right in terms of an attractive girl HDL as mention in other threads most attractive FSW on the hunt for men are Materialist. I could however go for an ugly girl or maybe even get an average looking one. Other option is to make out I'm wealthy and to bring up the women then when I see them go for one who is really into me, then even if she is Materialistic she may stick with me and set her sights for a bit less on the material front.

Wealth, well I'm not quite there yet but things are gradually improving I think. I don't think I'll ever be real wealthy in a big way but I think I could reasonably obtain comfortably off in a short time period. A girl would have to be content with that, which is not bad all in all.

Trench, I found my examples on a .co.uk site - in ENGLISH .. stop making excuses ...

Like  much of what you type - lack of preparation and research shine through ..

I think HDL was talking more about all the trips, time away from work, and expenses associated with this journey.   The more time you spend there the less time at work making money.   That is your opportunity costs.
