    [–] What are some things that people should know about protecting themselves while getting mugged or being beaten up by a group of people? travelstuffdump 18 points ago in AskMen

    Same thing applies to animals. Like watch the videos of a honey badger making lions turn and run because it's just too much damn trouble to deal with the furious little ball of aggression.

    [–] What is an important lesson you learned from a previous relationship? travelstuffdump 23 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in AskMen

    Hey, I STRONGLY encourage to be willing to open up in a relationship. Like someone else said, if someone breaks up with you for being open, then you're dodging a bullet. A relationship where you can't be open isn't worth having. Really. The goal here isn't to just be with someone, it's to be with someone you can be open with, and have mutual love and respect for.

    This is just the same old tired advice of 'bottle everything up, be a man' that people on here rightly hate. It's deeply unhealthy.

    [–] What have you dreamed of doing but haven’t done yet ? travelstuffdump 1 points ago in AskMen

    Cycling across Europe. I love travelling under my own power, like hiking, and bumming around Europe with a tent and a bicycle for a few months is the dream.

    This is what teaching English as a foreign language is good for. I've been out of the states for 2 years thanks to it. No plans to go back.

    [–] What looks great in porn but is actually not-so-great in real life? travelstuffdump 2 points ago in AskMen

    I'd like to point out all the comments agreeing with me. Sometimes moving your knees isn't enough.

    [–] What could have been awesome if people hadn’t ruined it? travelstuffdump 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah, I've stumbled into some potholes living overseas. Like how I would casually swear at my friends in America, so when I lived in Vietnam I learned some Vietnamese profanity, and casually used them with Vietnamese friends the same way. I had someone take me aside and explain that it is NOT okay to do that. Ever. Even as a joke. I called a friend a word that translates to 'motherfucker' but in terms of strength is like a hard 'r' N word. My Vietnamese friends were barely willing to say it to teach me.

    [–] Is there anything in terms of safety I seriously need to be worried about traveling alone in Mumbai for a week? travelstuffdump 5 points ago in mumbai

    Hahah, sorry for not knowing it was safe. I just always try to ask the locals before I go somewhere. Thanks for all the advice! I'll keep it in mind. Shabby metropolis is my favorite kind.

    The weird thing about 69ing as a man is you're just absolutely eye to eye with her brown star the whole time

    [–] King Chulalongkorn of Thailand, age 12, 1865 . Restoration/colorization credit to /u/ickychris travelstuffdump 2 points ago in pics

    Chulalongkorn was a huge modernizer and is largely credited with preventing Thailand from becoming a colony, at least in Thailand. Thanks again to /u/ickychris for the restoration

    Most of the positions. Besides a lot of them being just physically difficult to hold yourself in, its really difficult to get a good rhythm and thrust consistently in some of them. Even doggy can be difficult if the heights don't line up right and her vagina is too high or low for you to easily get at.

    There's a reason why missionary is the classic tbh.

    [–] Where’s the sketchiest part of Bangkok? travelstuffdump 3 points ago in Thailand

    My experience of Thailand has been that nowhere is very dangerous if you keep basic wits about you and don't do anything stupid. But you can get into trouble anywhere if you don't.

    I actually found the hookers and drug dealers a lot more aggressive in Chiang Mai than in Bangkok though. Although a fortune teller in a turban tried to drag my hungover ass down an alley on Khao San road too.

    [–] With some introspection, I've come to the conclusion that I'm a with a lot of "nice guy" attributes. How do I change? travelstuffdump 33 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in AskMen

    Probably because ((in general) once you're really close friends with a girl, your relationship is set. That's what you are, just friends. To suddenly turn around and ask them out after you've been close with them for a while could easily be seen as a betrayal of the friendship. They might wonder 'was he just being friendly so he could try and fuck me later?' They might feel like they can't relax around you any more because you were secretly into them this whole time. If they had a crush on your or something there would probably be some hints, at least. If there isn't, then you're a friend and making a move can make them question the whole friendship. How would you feel if you found out your super helpful friend had secretly only been helpful to you because they wanted something from you?

    I'll add, learn how to take rejection well. If a girl says she's not interested, the appropriate answer should be something like "That's a shame, but I understand, no hard feelings." Don't keep bringing it up. Don't be weird about it. Don't demand explanations. Don't try again. They made their choice and you have to accept it.

    Also, kudos to you for the self awareness about this. A lot of guys go through a period of being a 'nice guy.'

    [–] Prostitutes are so much fun when they're mad travelstuffdump 2 points ago in Tinder

    What? I mean I love crime. Hobbies include: breaking the law and telling others about my lawbreaking. Totally into it. And I want to hear about your crime too.

    [–] Saigon campaign against foreigners violating traffic laws underway - VnExpress International travelstuffdump 6 points ago in VietNam

    I wonder if those statistics change in urban areas like Hanoi or Saigon, because I asked around with my Vietnamese friends and they were all like 'yes, obviously I have a license to drive.' But granted my sample size was a small number of educated English speaking Vietnamese

    [–] Saigon campaign against foreigners violating traffic laws underway - VnExpress International travelstuffdump 11 points ago in VietNam

    As a foreigner here, good. I really take issue with some of the other people I know who rent a motorbike, have no idea how to drive one and zip around with even less regard for the traffic laws or safety than the locals. I would be horrified if a bunch of rich Chinese people moved into my town in America and started driving around without licenses or insurance. Especially if they seemed to have the assumption they could bullshit/bribe their way out of trouble.

    I sound like such a grouch tho

    [–] Prostitutes are so much fun when they're mad travelstuffdump 4 points ago in Tinder

    I matched with a freelance lady boy travelling prostitute once. I wasn't interested in the offered services, but I was disappointed that she didn't want to have a chat about her career, because it sounds interesting and I have questions.
