Meeting girls in Jakarta is easy, but surprisingly, meeting good girls can be quite hard.
At first, most single expats men who arrive in the city are extremely satisfied with their new condition of sex symbol.
Your objective should only be to get a phone number, nothing more.
Some places are more easy within the mall of course, like the cinema, the gym, or any queues... You have to be very careful, but if you are discreet, it can work well and it made at least a couple expat friends happy.
But after a few months, they realize that most of the girls they go out with are not what they expected: Very often, they lie, cheat, party a lot, take drugs, cannot commit, and are way too materialistic.
This is a very dark picture, but many of you will have recognized a past or present situation, maybe not as ugly but similar.
In my opinion it is over-rated: To be honest, the guys I know who met girls in Malls were often disappointed because they found out the girls were interested in $$$. Good girls are usually quite shy to be seen with foreigners in public and they will probably be a little distant, especially in front of their friends.Something strange and somewhat senseless happened this week.On Tuesday, the price of gold jumped over per ounce.
