Organizers decided to take those funds in later years to give more women educational rewards through the Miss America competition. I thought I was the only one that felt that way. Fakeness abounds in extremes in America and pervades all aspects of its culture and life, so you can't avoid it there. But we should, at a much earlier age than we do now, take a serious attitude toward dating and begin preparing ourselves to settle down. Miss America and Mary Katherine Campbell.

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 I found Winston to be a preacher of enlightenment and truth. I feel so much better about myself when I am around foreign people. I feel really energized. I feel more relaxed and at ease. Everything moves with the flow. Just like you said. You really helped me tremendously. I am thankful for that.
I love your philosophical Wisdom. I am brewing with hot topics in my head and want to write articles just like you. I have so much to add to what you have to say; even my own ideas about life in general. People like you are almost too good to be true Winston. The mere fact that you are saying all the things that I have thought about for years all the more make me want to be a fellow traveler of yours. Please, let's keep in touch.
Are you state side yet? Do you want to chat again? You are so amazing. His writing was a home run for me, it's the kind of stuff where if you repeat it here in the USA, people will think that you're crazy. Winston wasn't trying to change you to be a PUA like other guys try to do.
Geography was key with Winston and I agreed based on my experiences but to me I always thought they were just vacations. It explains why I was so lonely and miserable in America. I thought I was the only one that felt that way. Nobody really expresses how they really feel in the U. Why did they do this? Because his articles presented opinions which were suppressed. Millions of people had them, but they never heard anyone else discuss them, so they were led to believe they were crazy or delusional for having them.
If you agree or don't agree with someone's opinion is completely irrelevant. Most westerners are too uncomfortable speaking about politically-incorrect issues in daily life. 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. But as I experienced college even more, I soon realized that Winston was right on. I think I found it from a website search on how messed up the American dating scene is.
I just want to say what a Godsend this site is, because for the longest time I had no hope. So I stayed single and just settled on counting my days.
After finding this site and realizing that there are a whole world of options, I have regained hope and a will to find the right woman for me. And this site is incredible! It captures perfectly what is wrong with society here in the U. Social connection and inclusiveness and romantic relationships and sex are what I've always lacked in my life. 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.
You deserve cool points. 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 Ever since I read and found your website, my life is much easier. If I try this out and by some cosmic fluke, it does not work for me, then I would not respect you any less than I do right now.
However, if it does, you would be the man who changed my life, and I would be forever grateful to you like owing my success with foreign women to you.
I rarely ever feel compelled to personally respond to articles, websites, or posts, but after spending a couple hours today reading about your life's journey, I had to write to you. You hit home with me in an area that I've been praying about and dealing with for years! Your story resonates with me on every key level you discuss: There are many ways of looking at these things but it is evident most of us share the feelings of isolation and wasteland that modern western society has become.
There are many who perhaps feel this too but live in quiet desperation. 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.
I watched your clips on youtube The things you said just made me shout with joy. You know what Winston I'm a traveler and from experience women are more approachable and friendlier.
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. You thoughts and feelings mirror mine my friend. We're in the same boat Why do you love it here? There are so many wise guys. It is amazing it is marvelous, C'est magnifique.
I always surround myself with people who know more then me so I can keep learning and become a better person. Thank you so much for all your work effort. You are an inspiration, Winston. I only wish more men would wake up and see the light like we have. 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.
It is an absolute shame, and no man should have to live that way Thanks for a great site Winston. You're doing a service to all American guys by exposing the limited possibilities for happiness and social connection in the US. That was my first trip abroad, Winston, and it has convinced me that your position that Western guys can have a better life in other countries is absolutely correct.
I was very nervous around women I traveled to Asia and within a week I learned that I am really only abnormally nervous around American women What it boils down to, is that foreign women are an entirely different species It's one of those things you have to experience to fully understand. America is a dead place, Just GO and get on that airplane.
Life is better abroad. So, I worked hard for many years to improve myself So then I did some traveling to Hungary, the Czech Republic, and the Philippines, and beautiful young women couldn't keep their hands off of me! Dating is like real estate- the 3 most important factors are location, location, location! Before I moved abroad my social life in the US was a 2 out of 10 at best. When I moved abroad all that changed dramatically, and I made true friends and dated gorgeous women.
American women are more stuck up than foreign women and the proof was what I witnessed? I actually went to most countries abroad and what Winston said was SO true. I now applaud for his effort in helping dateless man like me in America face hope again.
Thank you Winston Wu. He's someone who's actually gonna show you proof. All these other websites you go to, they really don't show you anything. His ebook has changed my view of American culture degrees. I would also like to let you know that I am getting married in MAY Keep up the good work Winston you do inspire people. I am reading your revised, updated book as of August , and I must say that so far it's are real eye-opener You are a brilliant orator and you are very good at articulating in succinct detail the plight of men today.
Keep up the good work. I have never in my life seen an Asian guy with such a brilliant, philosphical mind. There have been times when I thought I was crazy thinking the way I was thinking, especially as it pertains to America and its awful, non-inclusive culture.
However, after reading Winston's words, I totally feel relieved and vindicated, knowing full and well it's society that is crazy, not me! I have a new internet hobby now: I'm moving to St Petersburg in the new year and as I was researching I came across Happier Abroad, and I couldn't agree more with the overall message Winston is absolutely right from my experiences.
I had to go somewhere and then come back to see the light, but I definitely see it. Wu was right about the Polish girls and them being really friendly and giggling and blushing. Wu was right about being able to go over to the girls' tables and immediately go and sit with them.
Wu was right about the society being more open in Poland than in America. Wu is trying to help other people's lives. And he helped my life because I stumbled upon his website and read his stuff and I was inspired in part by his website to try Poland. I went to Russia and married a beautiful Russian lady in We have been married almost 10 years now and have a 6 year old daughter together.
Russian women have a quality that is difficult to understand unless you have been there. It is a completely different experience than the US. Fascinating to see the reactions of your readers! As one pointed out, you really are a leader. Unusually truthful and courageous. You walk the talk so to speak and very few of these other men on these Blogging sites can ever claim this not even the agency owners whom many are scamming many men.
Thats more then can be said for most. I'm so excited and so happy now Winston. Keep up the good work my friend. Thanks for the many hours of work it took to put together. Also I curse you for the many hours I'll spend reading it all. Thanks for your enlightening articles.
I love how he persevered and finally got the girl of his dreams. I'm currently reading it right now and it is great!!! It took me a while to realize that there was a chasm of difference between the media picture of America and real life, but when the truth hit home, I felt very disappointed and empty. I even had a lapse of self-condemnation as I thought the problem was in me.
I have gotten over it now and can see clearly. Your writing puts all the pieces of the puzzle together very well. I have lived in the US for 13 years now, and I can't but agree with every single word you wrote???
Congratulations again on a job well done!!!!! I only wish I could be so eloquent - its as if you have been reading my thoughts. I came here for over 20 years ago searching for the stars with my 2 kids. It's making me more self-aware in areas that I may have been slipping into "typical American mode" in, and is opening my mind even more. I'm so impressed to find someone who clearly, boldly, and honestly declared the sickening state of social life in America and the deep ills that affect nearly all aspects of social interaction here, not just in relationships with women, but also the overwhelming feeling of disconnection and superficiality that pervades nearly all types of social interaction here I thought I was the only one who thought this way about American social climate.
Read his long story and the photos including the albums and you will be amazed??? Most of us, even if we did find the holy grail would either be too selfish or more likely shy and embarassed to ever come out publicly the way you have.
