Re: Sustaining relationships with women
Different cultures will have different customs and views on how people socialize and how relationships operate. Thus, I would not find it hard to believe that a majority of a certain country could act in this manner.
The only thing you really can do is maximize your social value. If you present yourself as a man of high caliber, and you can keep her drawn as emotionally and socially as possible to you, then it does not matter if you financially support her or not.
It would also be a good idea to keep control in the relationship. Define what will and will not happen, and do not give in to any of her financial demands.
