Young nerdy boys of the world, COME OUT OF YOUR SHELLS!!!


bromanceOriginally, I was going to call this post something like “10 reasons why it sucks to be a single guy in Sydney”, dedicating it to a couple of young boys I know and deeply love like my own younger brothers that I never had. Then I realised that the other is in another country and in the same situation.

So, what’s this rant about you say?

I will try to not bore you with too much details. The thing is, it sucks to be that guy who is technologically savvy but has no / little clue when it comes to interacting with girls his age. The fact is, while the boys are playing their “Scrap Mechanic”s and watching their “One Piece”s, girls their age are constantly going out to clubs learning the ropes of becoming masterful manipulators (in a positive way). Finally, when these boys come out of their shells, walking into these clubs for the first couple of times, they soon realise they are out of their league. It’s too harsh of an environment. It seems like every other guy is cheating by doing Roids and gyming 24/7. Soon, they realise they’re too behind in “night club” race. They decide, “if a girl truly likes me for who I am, then appearances don’t matter” or something along those lines.

The wake-up call!

The reality is, both these boys are at a disadvantage at their home cities. Just like I once was. Everyone these days wants to be special, they want to be “unique”. Whereas these boys are as common as stock roms that come with your brand new phones (nerd terminologies, hehe). This is why I push the message to them, “get out”, “get as far as your home as possible”, because only then you will arrive at a place where no one knows who you are. The people around you are different, YOU ARE DIFFERENT to them. Different is good, different makes you special and interesting. It won’t be long before the girls you considered to be an 8 (or, in other words, out of your reach) who considered you to be a 5 (or treated you like you weren’t in their league) appear to act differently. At this new location, a magic trick happens, all of a sudden, this girl you see who you think looks like an 8 thinks she looks like a 5, at the same time she thinks you look like a 7 OMG!!! (note that the numbers here don’t relate to girls’ self confidence, but to the novelty of you being different in their location)

This exact scenario happened to me multiple times as I was traveling (before I met you ofcourse Leshanta… please don’t kill me *shivers with fear in the corner* ). It’s so sad that this sort of thing is happening all around the world. Boys and girls are setting such high expectations (appearance wise) of their future potential partners that they are spending more time alone than with someone special.

As I have mentioned this You Only Live Once idea in other posts. But, truly boys, I know you’re both young and everything – please, please, I’m begging you – don’t waste a single moment of your lives. Life is way too short and there are so many girls out there who would be lucky to have you. They just don’t exist where you currently residing. I know you all have your issues to deal with. But solve them as soon as humanely possible and get out there. This world is yours for the taking!

Australian Singles! Who are they? Where are they?

So you’ve fantasized about going to this beautiful island / country called Australia.

australian singles

The place with sexy young Australian singles just waiting for your international coolness to touch down in the land of the “down under”. But, you did a quick google search or two. Counted the coins in your piggy bank. Soon, you realized that traveling to Australia is a distant dream. It’s unfortunate that you will never meet all the single Australians, to you heart’s content. It’s like the gods are taking a piss at you, this paradise of single beautiful people is inaccessible to you.

Australian Singles: Where are they?

Well here’s the good news!

We will come to you, no need for you to travel to one of the most expensive countries in the world. (“Sydney and its southern cousin, Melbourne, have ranked seventh and eighth most expensive cities to live in out of 140 cities in 93 countries worldwide“, Allianz)

Australian Singles: Who are they?

And here’s the bad news!

We don’t look like any of these pictures on this post! *sadface*. You probably bumped into us without even knowing that we were australian singlesAustralian. (“A new report has found Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world“, ABC). Well well well… did I just ruin your dreams even further? Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that there aren’t any really attractive Australian individuals out there. I am just saying, whether they’re attractive or not, you can’t really tell who’s from where these days solely based on someones looks.

So, what do Australian singles look like you say?

Well, you’re on the right path of questioning (not exactly though, explained later). We (Australians) look like everyday people really. Just because mainstream media in your home country has painted the image that Australians have blonde hair and blue eyes, doesn’t make us all look that way. In my personal opinion (coming from a person who literally grew up in Sydney), that image is actually the minority, I would even go as far as saying its a fraction of Sydney’s population.

Look at me and Leshanta for example. I look like I’m from the middle east (I have actually been called a few different things like: Indian, Italian, Thai, Filipino, etc.). Whereas a lot of strangers we bump into through our travels quickly conclude that Leshanta is from India. Long story short, stereotypical appearances that mainstream media portray no longer hold true.

The Silver Lining! Ah… The Silver Lining!

Let me try to recover your shattered fantasy/dreams from the ground with a taste of reality. You’re BETTER OFF! Australia is probably one of the hardest and most expensive places for you to be dating. You buy a girl drink or two, she’ll have her fun and move on to the next guy. You see attractive buff guys, but they’re sitting at a corner having a beer with their mates. (Later in the next article I will describe “Why it sucks to be a single male in Sydney” based on my views and experiences).

ARGGHHH!!! You’ve ruined my dreams!

Not quite! I have dosed you with a hint of reality. The thing with stereotypical ideas is that, there’s always a hint of truth in there. If you really want to be dating Australian singles, then don’t give up on your dreams. Maybe one day you’ll have enough money in the bank for a vacation to Australia. Even better, maybe an Australian hottie will bump into you, asking you directions to a touristic landmark. So my advice is, be alert and don’t judge someone too quickly by their appearance.
