Filipinas are some of the friendliest, most sincere, loving, and outgoing women you’ll ever meet in your life. They are gorgeous, have very optimistic views on life, and are typically very giving in comparison to what you’re likely used to.
So many men flock to the Philippines (and the internet) to meet the Filipina of their dreams because they know that they have these values, are beautiful, often religious, and are used to dating to marry older men.
Filipinas are extremely loyal, and likely the best kind of Asian woman you’ll ever meet and marry. They are also very adventurous, and usually speak basic to fluent English, which really adds to appeal for foreigners.
But, like any relationship, when it comes to dating – especially in a culture you might not be used to – there are a few must-know tips to guide you along the way. So, we’ve developed these top 5 Ways to Avoid Heartbreak when dating Filipinas just for you!
1. Trust and Technology
When it comes to interacting with and dating Filipina women it’s important to keep in mind they are typically very tech-savvy. This means that outside of Facebook, they are often familiar with most popular dating sites, webcam applications, and other random messaging apps that may or may not positively contribute to your relationship.
In other words, while these are all very helpful to connecting or staying in touch with your Filipina girlfriend, they also should be considered with a certain level of caution – depending on how much trust you have between one another.
So, if your Filipina girlfriend or woman of interest has a lot of random messaging Apps on her phone, and also a lot of passwords or locks you might be in for some trouble. Likewise, more than two Facebook accounts could mean trouble, or that you’re dealing with a “pro”.
Avoiding women like this can save you a lot of heartache, headaches, and even lost time or money. Just remember, this goes both ways – so what you see is what you get.
2. Family Tells All
Filipinas, in general, are very close to their family, live in close-knit communities, and often still live with their parents into their late twenties. So, while it’s true you might be invited to meet her family sooner than later, this can also be a benefit and offer a sort of “inside look” as to what type of woman you’re dating. Also, for those that are curious, typically a daughter will age in the same ways as her mother – so that’s always a plus too.
Most importantly, as you get to know and “bond” with your Filipinas family, you’ll learn more about her and her past. More than likely – assuming you’re a good person – her brothers and uncle, or even father will become close with you and even offer you pointers on how to successfully keep their sibling happy – as well as yourself while living or visiting the Philippines.
3. Ambition and Independence
How ambitious your smart, loving, and hot Filipina girlfriend is will likely tell you a lot about not only the kind of person she is, but in particular about her work ethic. As you’ll come to learn, Filipinos are typically very hard workers, industrious, and even like growing their own fruits, vegetables, and livestock.
The more independent and ambitious your Filipina is, the better. This way, you can try to connect with a woman that isn’t going to be too ‘clingy’ all the time, that will respect your space, and any other commitments you have in life such as work and family.
4. Desirability and Chemistry
Just like dating any woman, desirability towards each other should be defined by chemistry -or what you have in common. Try to date or “court” a Filipina that is humble, kind towards others, and likes the same things as you – or is at least willing to try some of those things.
You will find that a lot of Filipinas have grown up and even enjoy a lot of Western-influenced things, from movies to music, clothing, and even overall style. Naturally, many will also have a bit of a “western outlook” on things in life – so just be mindful of this and careful as to avoid any overtly materialistic women.
5. Education and Background
While it’s true that education is expensive for the average Filipino, many do make it work. So, the type of education your Filipina already has, as well as aspires to achieve can make a major difference in not only her intelligence, but also reflect her overall potential to be successful in life, mature, and responsible towards the things she puts her mind to.
Just remember, in major metropolitan cities like Manilla, you’re more than likely to find Filipinas that speak semi to fluent English, are familiar with American culture, and like a lot of the same things as you. However, spending time in or chasing after girls from the Provinces can be equally rewarding, and interesting.
Regardless if from a poor or middle-class family, you cannot buy morals and ethics, so, this is something you will have to search for and filter out on your own.
Ultimately, in pursuit of the loving, sexy single Filipina of your dreams, be sure to use your common sense, apply discretion, and if in doubt try to connect with other foreigners who have had experiences dating or even marrying a Filipina – just take what you hear with a grain of salt and be sure to always get a second, third, or even fourth opinion.
In the end, given the ratio of women to men, and the overall appeal of foreigner men to Filipinas you’re bound to meet the woman of your dreams – it’s just going to take time, dedication, understanding, and love. When in doubt, either step up and question your own feelings or hers, and remember that there are “plenty of other fish in the sea.”
