To Russia/Ukraine/Asia/Etc. For Love

For today’s vlog, which is based on a project I did for Voice and Diction class, we’ve got a little hard-hitting story for you, because today we are going to ask the question: Why do American men go for foreign women for lasting relationships? I am sure the answer will shock you immensely.

If you have been involved in the dating game in America, you will almost certainly have heard the terms, “Nice guys finish last,” “All girls want jerks,” and “Girls only want the nice guys when they’ve already wasted the best years of their lives with bad boys and when they’ve hit their late 20’s and 30’s and their looks are gone and they have five kids with five different men” and so on and so forth. And the dating game in today’s society is clearly stacked against men especially those in their early 20’s. Women in their early 20’s have their pick from any guy as long as they’re exciting, good-looking, rich, and basically an all-around jerk because women like a challenge as they try to reform the bad boy and failing horribly. Then after they’ve gone through the roller coaster ride with every bad boy they can find, then they say that they want to settle down and marry the nice guy.

However, they don’t marry the nice guy for love. They do it because they want a provider and a savior for her and whatever kids she may have as a result of her past. And if that doesn’t work, there is a thing called no-fault divorces where the woman takes the guy to court and takes half his earnings and anything else she takes goes for child support, even if the child is not his to begin with.

And in the end, the women who have routinely rejected and ignored the nice guys while they were in their prime now ask the question: “Where have all the good guys gone?” Well, I’ll tell you where they’ve gone. For those who haven’t given in to a life of forced loneliness or given up and taken one of these bad women, they’ve gone to Russia, Ukraine, the Philippines, Asia, South America… You see a pattern emerging here? That’s right, folks. Men have decided to leave the US to find foreign women for lasting relationships and marriage.

Now what is the attraction between American men and foreign women? Well, according to a blog site I came across called LovedByHer.com, the reasons why men go for foreign women are mainly based on their exotic beauty, intelligence, class, dedication to family, loyalty to their spouses and their desire to look their best for their mates. That along with the fact that in many of the countries that American men are flocking to, the ratio of eligible women to men is significantly higher due to wars and civil unrest. And foreign women do not care about wealth and they don’t care if the men are American or not.

My experiences with foreign women who have come to America have been fairly good. I found that I can relate to them a lot more than I can American women. In fact, I brought up a story about how I almost went out with a Ukrainian woman who was part of a subcontract group that did maintenance at my job during my early days there. I’m not sure what happened to her because I haven’t seen her in years, but my experiences with her have been positive.

And a lot of the Ukrainian women that have contacted me on the Internet, most recently on a dating site I discovered called Anastasiadate.com, I got more letters from women on that site (many of whom are from Ukraine) than I ever have from an American woman on okcupid.com and the many other dating sites I belong to. It’s refreshing that the only problem I have to encounter on that site (apart from the usual fees for certain services and you know how I feel about that) is who to reply to first because they’re all so beautiful, very sincere and of all the women that have ever messaged me on the Internet, they have the best pickup lines I have ever heard.

The fact that American men, most notably nice guys who have been rejected repeatedly by American women are finding true love with foreign women is causing American women to freak out. They start saying that “Oh, you can’t get with foreign women. They only want to use you so they can get a green card;” “Oh, they’re gold diggers;” and “You’re just looking in the wrong places. You should date us regardless of our past.” As far as to whether American women are right or not, that while there are some foreign women who actually are out to scam men to get a green card, that population is decidedly minor. The truth is that American women will say just about anything to prevent their alleged “future disposable providers” from leaving to go to another country to find true love somewhere else. The truth is the reason that American men are leaving the country is because American women let us go with their rejection of us for being too nice, treating women with respect and other good traits that American women find reprehensible in good guys that they don’t find reprehensible in jerks. And now American women have to live with it.

So in conclusion, as long as American men can find happiness and not limit it to America then more power to them. In fact, I think I might jump on the bandwagon and get a foreign girl myself. Sorry, American ladies. That’s the way it is. See what you reduced us to?

Humanity Ends in 10 Years!

Here is the latest Q & A vlog featuring yet more questions from my Formspring account and my Myyearbook.com. Anyway, let’s get started.

Q: What’s the story behind your Formspring username, which is as always, Blackcatloner?

A: It’s the same name I have used on all my Internet accounts since I created my email address in 2005. “Blackcatloner” is defined as “One lone cat against a big bad world,” but it’s basically the definition of my life to date.

Q: What was your first paying job?

A: A cashier at Grand Union in Rhinebeck, NY. I worked there from September 1997 until March 2001 when it became Stop and Shop (same building as GU) where I worked from March 2001 until I moved to Central New York in September 2002.

Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?

A: All my accomplishments online (blogging, YouTube, etc.)

Q: What’s the worst show on TV?

A: Teen Mom.

Q: Would you rather be the best player on a losing team or the worst player on a winning team?

A: Worst player on a winning team.

Q: What three things do you think will become obsolete in the next ten years?

A: Marriage, television, and not sure what else, although a co-worker I added on Facebook suggested that humanity as we know it will become extinct in ten years. I can see where that’s going.

Q: Would you rather swim in a pool or the ocean?

A: The ocean.

Q: Cats or dogs?

A: Cats.

Q: What historical time period would you most like to visit?

A: The future.

Q: If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

Q: Where’s your favorite place to buy clothes?

A: Yard sales and rummage sales at churches, which is actually the only time anyone should go to church.

Q: Would you rather be really hot or really cold?

A: Really hot because as I always say: “Hot weather brings out hot chicks.”

Q: What do you think about formspring.me so far?

A: I think it’s really awesome, especially since it gives me material for my Q & A videos on YouTube.

Q: What movie can you watch again and again and never get sick of it?

A: Taxi Driver. I could watch that DVD over and over and over and over again. It’s a really good movie and it only gets a bad rap because of that Hinckley douchebag who tried to kill then-President Reagan so he could score with Jodie Foster.

Q: What’s your earliest memory?

A: Seeing Empire Strikes Back (the original version) when I was 2 years old.

Q: What TV show do you wish would go off the air for good?

A: Barney. Apparently they still haven’t killed that purple dinosaur yet.

Q: Who and when was your first kiss?

A: No comment.

Q: Who’s the funniest person you know?

A: My friend JJ aka jjthefunnyguy.

Q: Do you believe in fate?

A: Sometimes.

Q: What celebrity would play you in a movie about your life?

A: Hang out online.

And now on to the Myyearbook questions:

Q: What’s the best place to pick up someone?

A: The Internet.

Q: Are you glad Bin Laden is dead?

A: Hell, yeah!

Q: Whopper or Big Mac?

A: I like both of them. I haven’t really had a Whopper in eons because they’ve gotten pretty expensive, but Big Macs are pretty good, especially without cheese. I am not a fan of American or cheddar cheese. I am more of a fan of Italian cheeses instead.

Q: Are you on Facebook?

A: Is water wet? lol. facebook.com/blackcatloner

Q: Should you believe a chronic liar if he admits that he is a chronic liar?

A: Well, if he/she admits it, then yeah.

Q: Is New York boring to you?

A: It can be. After all, I’ve lived in New York State all my life. And it doesn’t look like I’m leaving anytime soon.

The Calm Before and After the Storm

This vlog actually consists of two weeks worth of footage, including a walk along the Erie Canal on Easter, a monologue including my placement test at Herkimer County Community College and my two cents on the much-talked about Royal Wedding.
