Almost a thread topic in itself, the dosbodders guide how to look minted in a classy way without breaking the bank

eg the P1800 for 15 large is gonna get attention from the right women imo than the bonkers looking and priced Bugatti 

Dropping a few hundred quid on a cashmere overcoat and some oxford brogues is going to pay you back more than the latest fancy trainer tracksuit combo

Oh :(

Right, Overfinch Range Rover and gold Rolex it is.

And maybe some new socks.

Just kidding. Hmm how about instead a Tesla Model S, longest range model now 375 miles real-life, with the latest autopilot which Musk claims should support Level 3 in the next year or two, already Level 2 would make those long drives very chilled (colleague does Aix-Les-Bains - Geneva with very little driver input). Discreet-ish statement of wealth with a real benefit. Then a house makeover and those new socks as well, and you'll have more tales for us than Stokie in no time! (but a bit classier)

I have to live vicariously these days in case you were wondering!

Yes @Sugarlips

I like the Volvo.

I did have a cashmere overcoat.

. I think a tramp has it now, as I put it in the Tesco recycling bin.

'Overfinch' must be the most unaspirational brand name ever. It sounds shit and means nothing.

The truly rich don't dress ostentatiously or display brands on their clothing. In fact they dress so drably there's no point in them having any money. I guess they get their orgasms from looking at the big numbers on their bank statements. 

What's the point of being rich financially? 

But as Woody Allen once said its better to be rich and happy than poor and miserable.

As this is an opposing argument to the general opinion on this thread, presumably drawn from opposite experiences with women in Asia (where?) I would like to hear more. Are you saying that where you are the women respond differently?

To put my perspective into context...I've lived in Taiwan (Republic of China...not Thailand) for the last eight years, got married to a local girl a few years ago and still very happily married with a child in the early stages of development.

Are the women different over here... massively different... girls over here prefer dressing 'cute' to sexy and the fashion is based on this. You won't see boobs hanging out, you won't look at a girl and think 'she's easy/been around' ... That's not to say you couldn't pick up a girl easily, there's just no sleeping around culture in day to day life. If a guy wants some quick fun then they he'll go to the 'underground culture' ... (yet still in plain sight?!) 'Special KTV' ... A group of guys can hire a room, get some beer and choose which girls they want to join them for an evening of singing, drinking and whatever else that may lead to.

Generally though, the everyday girls are attracted to guys that are 'handsome' and they like their man to treat them with respect.There's no real drinking culture, so to date a girl is to take her for meals, go to night-markets, visit department stores, parks etc. They want a 'man' that can take care of them and protect them...but to do that you don't need to be built like a brick. Just being polite and confident has worked out well for me so far.

There's a thing, displaying brands

A few years ago (probably longer than i think)  I noticed people leaving the 'tacked' on designer's cloth labels or 'tag' on the outer cuffs of jackets, coats and other clothes - is that still a thing ?

A bit like people with real leather shoes that leave the real leather, real leather tag hanging from the shoelaces. Dorks.

To be cynical for a moment, I bet one never sees the Special KTV girls and the demure, everyday girls in the same room. Just like Clark Kent and Superman.

You and I know that. But easily impressed materialistic women of easy virtue don't. :/

Interesting. I thought the same about eastern european girls (probably from reading too much early 2000s 'game' websites about how they are so much more feminine and traditional than western women) and ended up marrying a Hungarian lady; it didn't work out and I was back in the UK after 4 years. I'm tempted to think the far east is the 'last chance saloon' for someone like me (late 40s) to settle down and start a family, but I'm not sure it's worth the risk. You hear some horror stories about that kind of thing. Still, I'm glad it seems to be working for you.

Brb off to integrate into new social group at age of 35 with plenty of eligable women and rise to the top of that group and/or create such a group by myself. It seems an insurmountable task, I'm not sure where to start, and I'm not sure if I could be arsed anyway.

You are correct that the major problems is that I don't meet many new people from one year to the next. I don't like socalizing/small talk for the sake of it really.

My social 'circle' is a handful of blokes from various stages of my life (school, uni, previous jobs) who I have similar interests to, mostly married but for whom the wives don't socialize with their mates.There isn't a 'group' that goes out and does stuff together.

You always talk about playing guitar, I am pretty sure he meant that you should start a band. I won't dox myself by saying anything else but it is every bit as good as everyone says, any show with more than about 50 to 100 people watching will have at least one woman ready to service you (unless you're the drummer). And it is an awesome, fun and fairly cheap hobby anyway.

Agree re the anadin, I don’t smoke but over the years I reckon I could’ve struck up plenty of promising conversations with young women who were asking for a light/bumming a cig late in the night. There should be a dosbods small ammunition kit for single fellas to carry when out on the town

Read that as 'a light bumming'

Absolutely correct... definitely a subculture. There's also an underground mafia culture which you very rarely see on the surface, but it definitely exists.

Never say never... Although, you're right, i'd be more wary about the 'poorer' Asian countries. One thing I will say... over here the students, the adults all work their assess off... which does sometimes mean that there is less time to form deep social connections (no pub culture). This in turn means that there are a hell of a lot of single women in their 30's, 40's etc... which is kind of considered to be over the hill, in Asian culture especially. Compare a typical  Asian woman in her 30/40s to an English lass of the same age. Say no more.

Three for me too though I just surf it for amusement.  I'm not on there in any recognizable way.  The sad part is they have been on there for years.  I know two of them personally and I chatted to one of them recently.  She had no idea that I knew anything about her online situation but I brought up the subject.  She admitted she was on there and her plan was to meet her perfect man who was over six feet tall, good looking, got a nice car, good job, hawt body, owned a house and was good in bed.  This woman is late 50s or even early 60s.  For her age she is a 6.  I told her straight that I know guys like that but they would not look at her twice.  If they were the same age as her they would be going out with women at least ten years younger and at least an 8.    She agreed with me but insisted that those were her standards and "Yer never know".   She treated the whole thing very much like a lottery.  She was holding out for the big prize.  Totally delusional.  Had a much better chance of winning the lottery.  I wished her well.  Eye roll.    

Pisser but I’d fuck her but has a 53 year old man with a house and a car and a job and able to afoard foreign holidays I would honestly think

nothing of trying to chat up 30’year olds

I must admit, as soon as I see a RR with the Overfinch branding I immediately think 'wanker'.

It's only just mildly less wanky than the 'Khan(t)' brand of chavwagon that you see knocking about the place. 

If you ever pull up next to one at the lights it's considered good form to wind down the window and scream...

Aye, they usually buy quality though, drive Volvos, clothes made of good material (even though they might be decades old), decent house (albeit not ostentatious) etc.

Bloke I know who sold his business(es) for an 8 figure sum still obsesses about supermarket tokens/offers and complained about the bus ticket price into town when I last went out with him. Really interesting guy, he doesn't need to prove anything to anyone. The vulgarity of the people who have less money but try and put the biggest show is on is not an appealing feature.

      Anyway, if you care about your health and make sure you aren’t a bloated sack of lard you are apparently benefiting from thin privilege.
      The self delusion levels here are enormous. Let’s flip it. So, do people going into most places to eat (where you are never really sure if you are getting healthy food even if it looks like it might be) benefitting from fat privilege? 
      The gulf between reality and what these morons want to be reality is getting so great you’d need a vessel capable of faster than light travel to cross it.
