To the point that she knows how long I’ve been with my girlfriend and I have even offered to help her find her own boyfriend online. Now, thanks to the Net and the sharing of new ideas into the Philippines..If I were not to do that, in this culture the simple act of grabbing a bite to eat on her way to work could very easily be mistaken as a cue to moving on to meet her parents. there are ‘some’ young women, like Steff, who are open-minded to the idea of having a ‘good friend’ with no further expectations involved. BUT, you gotta make clear to them (repeatedly) that you are just-friends or else you’ll be sending the wrong signals. Some of the Filipina women here enjoy the company of the gay or transgender men because they are usually a lively bunch and (usually) have no sexual expectations from the women.In regard to fidelity, Filipinas prefer an older expat over a younger one as a husband.Too many other Filipinas they know have been burned by young expats under 39 who have gotten what they wanted and moved on a day later.In my opinion () the result of soft Asian features, petite bodies combined with the Latin traits and passion all work together to result in many, many beautiful Filipinas. But here, you can’t walk a city block without seeing several of the most attractive women you’ve ever seen. Here most companies REQUIRE they wear short mini-skirts and look as neat and presentable as possible.
Statistically, a percentage have turned their back on the ‘old ways’ and are total man-sharks.
I’ll give a good ‘for instance’ from my own personal experience. It’s very common here for Filipinas to refer to a non-relative as their ‘cousin’ or ‘sister’, ‘Auntie’ or ‘Big Brother’.
A few years ago, while living on Mactan, I met a lovely young Filipina named Steff. She has two young kids and works two jobs to provide for them. But knowing what I know about the differences in culture, just to be safe I have let her know (’. But to most Filipinas in the smaller cities and especially in the provinces, it’s almost equivalent to taking some girl to Rodeo Drive for dinner on a first date.
But believe me, as a person who has spoken with so many, many single men and women.. In regards to meeting Filipinas specifically Online, there’s an article devoted to that here. Well, I checked with a governmental statistics site and it has nothing to do with the ratio of men-to-women. For another thing, the unemployment rate here has hit male-oriented jobs the hardest leaving many Filipino men without work.
the whole ‘dating scene’ is a convoluted and frustrating game. As I walk through any given part of the island I notice that almost 70% of the jobs held inside the large stores and malls are held by young, attractive, mostly single women under the age of 30.
