The Cost of a Super Bowl Trip vs. The Cost of a Trip Abroad

By Andy


Which is better, a trip abroad or a trip to the Super Bowl?  Is it preferable to spend a week or two in a foreign land, meeting new people; or taking a trip to another part of the country with your buddies for a few days? Is attending the Super Bowl cheaper than traveling abroad? Which is the overall better experience? Officially, that is debatable.

Do It For Yourself

By Andy


The other day I recalled one of my trips abroad. It was just over a year ago, when I was out on a date, at a cafĂ© in Eastern Europe, having a pleasant conversation with a beautiful Slavic woman. In the middle of our lovely chat, out of nowhere, from across the table, she commented on my muscles. She said she liked muscles, and was so impressed by mine. Now, I’m not a bodybuilder nor do I have the body to compete in a competition or be a model, but I do work out on a regular basis, and look decent for someone who has spent the last few years erasing many more years full of bad habits and poor diet.

Five Reasons Why the Gym Is NOT a Good Place for Dating

By Andy

By now you're probably aware that this is the time of year where the new year’s resolution gym-goers come out of the woodwork. If you're a regular gym-goer like I am, it's bad enough to have to search for a parking spot and wait your turn to use weights or machines during the month of January. What is worse is that regardless of what time of year it is, unless you're Mr. Olympia, you're probably not going to be getting any dates at the gym. That is one of the things I've noticed while frequenting the gym more often and switching gyms in different cities over the years, it is not a dating paradise. Simply put, gyms in the U.S. are not a good place for men to get dates.
  
Here are some reasons why:

Traveling While Black Part 2


Why I waited so long
As I mentioned, the motivation for sharing this has been brewing, but there've been some other reasons why it's taken me this long to speak out.

1. I have a dear friend who has three daughters.
During my most recent six-month stay in China, I would often write private emails to my friends in the states letting them know everything (and more) that I'm sharing with you in this book and this chapter. Once, I even joked that I should write a book about dating overseas for Black men. One of my female friends half-jokingly, --but with a real exasperation at the underlying reality it hinted at--asked me not to write such a book encouraging mass exodus, as she wanted the pool of eligible and available Black men to be there for her daughters when they reach dating and marrying age. She didn't want me diminishing the pool by telling men what they could be experiencing overseas. (Seriously. I'm not kidding.) So, while I haven't forsaken my friend's daughters, I'm sure she'll understand that in the words of the great philosopher, Mr. Spock, "the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few."

The Holiday Season is Contributing to the Destruction of the American Family


By Andy

Unless you've been stranded on a desert island or chose to be ignorant by only watching reality TV, you'll know that feminism and the family courts are and have been destroying the American family structure. What you may not know, or what doesn't really get discussed as much it should, is that the holiday season is also destroying the American family structure. It is well known that the holiday season in the U.S. is a depressing and stressful time. What is supposed to be a joyous and festive season of giving can easily be a period of disillusionment and resentment. There are many driving factors behind this season stirring up animosity between family members.

Making Up for Lost Time

By Andy


As a child, I led a semi-sheltered life. For example, my parents wouldn't let me play tackle football (American football) and questioned everything I did, every move I made. Granted, my family and I were, and are still close, but the flipside to that coin is that they were constantly keeping tabs on me. Add to the fact that I was the oldest child, and there was insanely tremendous pressure on me to not only succeed and be a shining example, but to not screw up. Yeah, my life was highly scrutinized, and today, in a way, it still is, but on a much lesser scale.

The Difference between a "Screw You" trip and a "Yahoo" trip, and Why Both Are Important

By Andy


It’s been a while since I made a blog post, but it’s not for a lack of trying. Without divulging too much, my time was consumed by me attending to some family matters, and I had a new job to prepare for, which starts soon. Granted, it sucks for one to have to spend their summer in such a fashion, but sometimes things just come up that you have no control over; that’s just a part of life. It’s also a deeply disappointing feeling to know that, because of this and some other rare and unforeseen circumstances, I likely won’t be traveling abroad this year. But what I have realized is that, with a little planning and creativity, it is possible to take two kinds of trips, and they don’t always have to be abroad.

Why Foreign Women are a Win-Win Solution for American Men


By Winston Wu

If you've ever felt that women and girls in America were way too picky, and wondered why, well you're not alone. You may not be able to change their picky ways, but the good news is that there is a solution:

You can easily find women who have reasonable standards toward men, and a more appreciative positive attitude toward you. All you have to do is go overseas to saner countries with feminine foreign women who will appreciate you, validate you and like you for you.

Let me explain why foreign women are a natural, healthy win-win solution for American men.
