I don't even like spicy food. The nose running and the sweating. Actually, I don't experience sweating but the nose running is awful. Have to constantly wipe your nose as you eat. Not a pleasant experience. And I get this for even the most slightly spicy food.
But heat (e.g. in peppers) is just an easy substitute for taste so sometimes I go for it but I won't fall for that again.
Hey, another Tantan match. Dude. I can't even keep up. I have at least three matches hidden from me. I was about to say that I'm considering going "gold" to be able to see who they are instantly but then I saw the new price. Previously, a "gold" membership was like $1.50/month. But I look now and it's £8.50. They must have originally put me on China pricing and then when they realised I was in the UK, they put me on UK pricing. I'll pay £1 for this shit but not £8.50. Fuck off.
Remember when WhatsApp used to be like £1/year? I'd get threats when the year was almost up that I was about to get locked out of the app unless I paid but they'd always end up saying that they'll waive the fee this year. It's free now for everyone, of course. Not sure how they make money. There aren't any ads.
But yeah, this Tantan is great. I just wish I lived in an area with more Asian people. I wonder how awesome this thing would be in London. I'm gettin matches with sexy young Chinese ladies but they're nowhere near where I live.
I got a reply from that prostitute too. She wasn't even mad that I gave her the business. She was just talking about geography. And she changed her profile to remove the reference about getting paid.
Somebody should do a study. Create a Tinder profile and a Tantan profile, same pictures, same biography, and note the difference in response.
I have to assume that even an Asian man is going to do better on Tantan. I know that Asian guys complain about white guys taking all the Asian ladies but Asian guys are surely even less popular with white women than they are with Asian women.
Another good scientific study would be using Tinder in the UK versus using Tinder in China. I've tried this myself using a location spoofer. No matches in the UK, and more matches than you know what to do with in China.
It's the same profile. I haven't changed. But white women in the UK just aren't interested. I'm not talking about the hot white women. I'm talking about the 1's and 2's. Not interested. They can do better. Or so they think. They'll never find anyone.
I was checking out Happn. I live near the court so there was a solictor who popped up in my feed. 39 years old.
What have you been doing? You're a solicitor. You couldn't find anyone in all these years? She's not a looker but she's not repulsive and I'm sure that she was reasonably attractive in her younger days. She's slim. But couldn't make anything happen. Her standards were too high. And this is what happens.
A few years ago, I saw a profile of an 18 year old on Tinder. All cleavage shots. One of her pictures was a Sun news article that she appeared in, "Best Boobs of Britain" or something. There were a bunch of little pictures of young top-heavy women and a little blurb about their tits.
Still there today. But she's 21 now. I sent her a message three years ago and she didn't reply.
Now, as I've always said, you don't want to reply to a guy 20 years older than you, I can dig it. But nobody met her standards? In three years?
She's still young, of course, but this is a pattern that's going to continue the rest of her life. Some fat chick working as a carer thinks that she deserves some hot, muscular dude with a high paying job. It's just not realistic.
China gets it, though. "You're a white guy, that's good enough for me."
Speaking of which, what's Sleepyflower up to? Aw, did he close his page or is it just because I don't have a Facebook account now? Well, I'm sure he's doing something exciting. Think he was at a museum with his son the last time I checked. Doing some father/son bonding. In Taiwan. Good for him.
