interesting to see that or looking for 'white' friends, do u think asians ore coloured people are not good enough to hang out with? Such a bullshit..

Why u even stutter when u approach 'white' people, thats strainge main..
Btw im from europe but i think its verry inapropiate to bring your story this way, but thats my opinion..

u also say 'i have no girlfriend i don't think of things like that' so i might consider that u actually are gay then :P (no offence)

anyway get your self togetter man, weird post if u ask me.. Good luck with finding 'friends'..

no pun intended ...i see i got chinese friends already..then other malay...so some of them are really easy to talk to..but most of them are really busy so i do not have white / western friends so im curious what this society has...

no girlfriend means..im not looking so as not to spook females..cause im not that kind of guy..

im a PC gamer...much of a nerd i like music metal and skateboarding..im not interested into romance...but if you look it that way...its up to you in case you want to pick a fight..go somewhere else...

also why stutter?we're not raised that way...socializing is a different way in our country...

"respect is always the word"

maybe this is my way to discovering such things since im not exposed to those first time i got here in singapore i got culture shock so in order to learn..i must have good friends...

anyway thank you for the reply...i just knew just this day when i got a single reply out of many views..that guys from your country were rude and disrespectful...

take care and more power to the forums...

Dude Pinoy

Your approach was a little too strong, maybe tune it down a level next time. It's an online forum, people will bash at any given opportunity and it doesn't help that your just giving them more ammunition with forward posts like these. In any case, good luck man

Seriously?

How does that go, to be exact?

And honestly...do you really need to find "white" friends? as in "Caucasian"? This is an online forum where everybody's welcome! No matter where you come from, whatever your ethnicity, as long as you want to mingle with people and keep an open mind, then there are no worries...

Nickdutch, you're not alone, I also feel that this post is very inappropriate, and the way he's handling it is just too weird...(I'm not European though.)

And Tiam dude, if you have had culture shock from the beginning, then you should have made a few filipino friends in the first place to show you the ropes, then when you're comfortable enough, venture out and find other friends you can hang out with...

It's kinda strange that someone needs to give out "How To Make Friends" advice at your given age...I assume you're already 20+ no?

Again, good luck bro...

and also if you read my 2nd post..i already had other race friends...but i wanted to learn the Caucasian or white society one...simple as that...

well anyway..im not trying argue with you..but if you think that way its alright with me...

@the other dude

sir thank you...for the heads up...btw i won some aus and danish friends in somerset..so yeah...having a great time..skating with them...then ask some questions...here and there what's it like...

Because u bring it the wrong way, its ok that u want to meet people from other countries ore cultures. But you are already making a big mistake to adress it with 'white' people.. Just ask that u want to make friends from other cultures as yourselves.. The way u bring this up is the wrong way.

so im just trying my luck out here...but it seems that you argue cause im filipino...


Now you starting again, you already place yourself 'lower' then 'us' because you think people might not accept you because your pillipino. Your not in the philipines anymore, you have to think differend.

People will accept you for who you are, not where u come from. Start acting normal and dont think that some people are better ore differend then you because there skin has another colour ore there eyes have a differend shape.. If u keep thinking like that it will be like that. But it doesnt have to be like that. Thats up to you.

Lern from this, im not trying to bash u.

This.

The "us" and "them" mentality needs to stop. Although, wanting to mix in with people from different cultures is a good start, you gotta approach it differently. Instead of thinking of wanting to have friends from different cultures, think of it of wanted to have friends who are interested in the same things but from a different point of view.
