Some of you may remember my Trading and Dating thread which was quite entertaining. Well after a few further years of frustrations, I am wondering if the women in my country (Australia) are just plain fucked. I'm going for women that are at a similar level to me, but is seems they all have unrealistic expectations. I hear a lot from my American brothers that it is a similar situation over there too. Has anyone had any experience in European countries to give a comparison, or am I just chasing a mirage? What would be a good country for an independent trader. Criteria being: - easy to get residence/work permit - taxes not too high - good lifestyle - attractive and willing women I've heard Prague is good. Seems a work permit as self-employed is possible and taxes are low. Any others? I feel like I'm in the prime of my life right now (mid 30s), great lifestyle, plenty of freedom, but am getting overly frustrated chasing Aussie women around with no real success.
