has anyone noticed, JakChat attracts almost zero interest from indonesian men.

sure g00f used to hang around, but he doesn't count because he's sort of been aculturalised into australia.

why is this so? i have my own thoughts, but would be interested in hearing other peoples opinion first ...

1. Its in English. Many of the girls here are perfecting or improving their English in the hope of finding a Bule.

2. Bules want Indo girls. Indo guys get plenty of Indo girls without needing the internet….

well my husband is boring LOL. All he does is work and eat !
No, Im being mean and only joking. He thinks forums are for girls only.His favorite hobby is watching those damn sinetron pilems -chinese history dramas-you know that have 90000 discs ...
plus he prefers to hang out with ibuibu dan bapakbapak for obralobral and makanmakan.
He doesnt really hang around aussies except me and my friends, he prefers fellow indos or some indian friends, or chinese, italians also. Dunno why?

in general, indonesians are less "text" orientated than westerners, and males less so than females. but this for me does not explain the gender discrepancy in JakChat in terms of indonesian males (the case of non-indonesian females is perhaps a separate matter again).

i don't want to lead this discussion to far before hearing what others think about this. so come on you indonesian JakChat gals, give us some reasons, why are indonesian males not participating in JakChat?

Small Dicks!

Thats what I was told last night! Thats the only apparent major percieved major difference!

Truth be it to tell, they also belivee (in fairness and understanding) that most men care more about themselves than their significant other!

Damn right! Pass the Bintang,make me a Bacon Roll Sandwich and switch the World Cup Final on while you're sweeping up my mess!

I suppose Bule's just have more fun so that living with one is never boring!

In general Bules have more money.

They are more "worldly" becuase of more money (even dole bludgers in the UK go to BKK for sex these days)

Bules have more confidence (unwarranted since most are wankers)

I think it is unfair to generalise about men of any race or nation, despite certain national characteristics that are frequently present.

In simple terms the bules who end up in Jakarta tend to be the expats, complete with the lifestyle of expats.

Expats tend to have money, and tend to spend it having fun. This makes them more interesting to certain types of girls.

When I was working at Indosat most of the girls there kept well away from me. They wanted a good honest Indonesian man and had no interest in me.

Interestingly, it was the less educated girls doing menial work who were more interested in talking to me.

And before anyone asks, I never mix work with pleasure.

I like the way how they (bule male) talk straight with me, no bush around, even they lie or not but I like their confidence...YES or NO is clear.

Little Flo, the one thing I definitely am not is boring. I am immature, foolish, a bit crazy, I am promiscuous, stupid, cruel, unstable, and many other bad things, but I am not boring.

I have a good sense of humour and an adventurous sprit that often gets me into trouble.

I don’t think any girl here on JC could handle the pace for more than one night.

but 10% are not so poor. 10% of 230,000,000 people is 23,000,000, or the equivalent of 7 singapores.
