      it's more descriptive. are you really going to tell a girl:
      >"Yeah I work remotely"
      >"Oh cool, do you have permanent residence?"
      >"No, I move to a new location every 3 months"
      >"So... you're a digital nomad?"
      >"No, I work remotely"
      seems like you're just a contrarian

        Most digital nomads have a permanent residence at their parents', they're just very reluctant to admit it.
        Not that there's anything wrong with that.

          Don't really see what the issue is.

          I hate the term "digital nomad," but that's what I did for the past three or four years. I was working remotely, earned decent money, and stayed in four or five different countries. IIRC, I'd actually just finished university before the pandemic, so I just kept my parents' place as my permanent address. What else are you going to do if you're young and don't already own your own property--lease an apartment just to list on your ID?

    I hate them simply because they can live a life I know I’ll never be able to.

    Being able to travel perpetually while getting a western salary is aristocrat tier. You could stop in every country of interest and creampie qts then move on. I literally just go to work and come home. I have no happiness in my life at all. In America I just endure my existence with literature and daydreaming about returning to Thailand. I’ve gotten used to it psychologically, but if I was a digital nomad every day would be a new beginning filled with excitement, anticipation, and euphoria that never has to end. Instead, I get to suffer mildly without end (until my next trip whose duration is constrained by my ability to save).

    The worst part is that these “aristocrats” aren’t regal, magnificent men of splendor. They’re meek, pencil necked, dork homosexuals and if they’re not physically frail, they’re mentally deficient.

    I know dudes making 250k a year in Thailand and they just go to Starbucks, upgrade the appliances in their apartments, and pay for girls attention. They don’t even party. Meanwhile with 250k I could mimic Dan bilzerian easily.

    Instead of the meek inheriting the earth, it’s dork homosexuals

I'm not even racist, it's not all their fault that they live in a society that they have no stake in, whose values or culture or traditions that they don't give a frick about, and why the frick should they. I certainly wouldn't give a frick about the Chinese empire if the Chinese dragged my great grandfather out of Ireland. But they are absolutely miserable to be around and anyone who lives near them knows this. You're either lying or you're in fierce denial. You also sound brown or at least non-white yourself, don't be surprised that we can tell through the screen, your demeanor sucks.

      I always wonder myself also I work in IT in the US but I hear guys say they're DM in IT but they never provide a concrete example of how they did it or what they do. Which makes me believe a lot of DM are just larpers.
      On the tax implications we had an employee that got fired in 2021 because she was WFH unknown to her manager in another state (which has state income tax) and our office is based in a state without state income tax. Anon doing this under the radar in SEA with a 12 hour time difference would mean working at nights into the early morning which leaves no time for cooming. The best bet would be with an international company based in Asia but job opportunities there with a western salary are far and few between.

        I live in Florida (no state tax) and WFH. Taxes are based on your state of residence, the address you put on your W-2. If her manager didn't know she was WFH in another state I can see her getting fired over it.

        True nomads are freelancers/hustlers/self-employed. Wagecucks like you and I have to go through the process of asking, ass kissing, proposal, etc to WFH for an extended period overseas.

        I know a moron who put a Florida address and fricked off to Paraguay without informing his company. According to him, he had it all set up with VPN, keeping regular work hours, stock background on his video calls, it's all under control right?

        He lived like a king down there for about 3 months before his employer inevitably found out and told him come back to the office (not even WFH anymore). The office is in PA and now he has to move there kek

In theory I could move back to the USA, get a remote job, then move overseas without telling them, receive my salary in dollars to my U.S. account, and transfer money around various ways to actually live overseas but it's quite a hassle and if they find out they might fire you.

        My sister in law said they had a fully remote employee move from Texas to Hawaii and they told her not to and she just did it anyway. They fired her.

    Your own life experiences/values obviously play a huge part. I've never met a "my entire goal of life is to never settle and always travel"-type guy that has a healthy relationship with his family to keep them rooted, or isn't trying to outrun some kinda of trauma. (Alternatively, they're just trust-fund babies LARPing about being a freelancer or "studying abroad" when everything comes from daddy's bank)

      >dream scenario...working a well-paying job
      Some people view travel as a consumption experience - they leave their life behind to take a vacation and splurge on luxuries that they don't go for back home. I recently took my first vacation trip after years of nomad-style travel, mostly as a brokegay. It was hella fun.
      For "global nomads" and their kind, living in foreign places is a lifestyle. They may go "home" to work and save some money, but life in their home country is unappealing, and they get out as soon as they can. Maybe they like tropical weather, easy girls, a lazy pace of life, not having to lift a finger to cook meals or clean house.

      My family is shit (morbidly obese pseudochristian-cult weirdos) and my 'friends' in the usa became meth addicted psychopaths after highschool. I joined the military to get away from all of them, and had no real roots after finishing my enlistment anyways due to being stationed overseas and deploying often.

      I made friends while I was in, and we went and did private military contracting together, which further distanced us from the normie lifestyle in the USA.

      Basically since age 19 I barely owned anything and lived out of a bag anyways, fighting and living in various shitholes. It was a natural progression to become a 'digital nomad'.

      I did actually try to go back to the USA and 'settle down a bit', but it was excruciating and I hated almost every second of it. Americans are insane, dangerous, yet simultaneously boring weirdos.

    I am sorry for SighSee, in SighSee we also have these undesirables (homestead meme, vanlife meme).

    Social media has ruined a generation and I greatly fear for our future.

    Digital Nomads, especially the new ones are low iq joggers and drop shippers that will get flushed out. Peace can return and turd worlders can reset their expectations.

    But I don't want to work. I just want to retire. I just want to find a cheap country that's not a crime infested shithole, and just live the NEET life. I only need like 25K a year to live as I already do. I'm halfway through the needed capital to do so.
    Give me some countries ideas, even better if low tax on capital income. I thought of Portugal, not the cheapest, but comf and still cheap compared to G7 countries.

        My boomer father moved there 6 years ago already, to benefit from the quite tasty fiscal measures they put in place to appeal to retired richgays. And he's quite a richgay. Though they're putting an end to these measures, it's not as interesting for newcomers.
        It's quite comf over there, really, I could see myself living there. Not as cheap as I'd want to on everyday products, but god damn those tasty low housing prices. Restaurants are cheap, though to be honest I barely go in restaurants in the first place. Good T°C all year around on the coast, never too cold, rarely too hot.
