Re: My Foreign Girl Experience (Long)
It would seem that you wrote all these posts under influence, however they were still darn interesting....
Your life is definitely way edgier and different to mine!! 2 babies and countless nappy changes are what keeps me up at night!
Still I wouldn't trade.
I think pretty much all the other guys that made insightful points said it, and I'll chime in too, the poker chick is going to be nothing but tears and strife....but when you're in, you're in.
The only advice I would give is: try some other activities in other type of setting as oppose to poker in dodgy places...hey I like playing poker too, so i haven't got anything against poker...I guess what I am trying to say is best by paraphrasing the below
As a Chinese saying once goes, 近朱者赤，近墨者黑
A Chinese proverb similar to the English saying "Bad company corrupts good character", and extremely similar to the Greek proverb "A man is known by the company he keeps".
The origin of this saying lies in the way the Chinese used to prepare ink for writing and painting. There were two basic colours available in the ancient days: red (赤; chì) and black (黑; hēi). Red ink was known in Chinese as 朱砂墨 (zhū shā mò), while black ink was simply called 墨 (mò). To prepare the ink, one had to grind an ink-stick in an ink container (about as big as an ash tray), taking care that one's long sleeves stayed out of the way. Grinding the ink-stick often meant that the ink would stain your fingers (or sleeves, if you were careless or inept). Therefore, another person could always tell which ink you were using by the colours on your hands.
